It may just be me, but that's a pretty nice year 1 for the Switch. 3DS looks nice as well with Monster Hunter Stories, Mario & Luigi, Pokemon and Metroid Returns (likely only buy on release). Good stuff. I wish the PS4 had such a nice library that first year. I remember after Infamous Second Son it was a huge drought until Destiny (and that was multi release, though PS4 stuff released first). I'll get a Switch next year.

God Wars: Future Past (PS4) is not even out yet and its already dropping in increments on Amazon.com.   Currently $30.28 (MSRP $49.99) which is even well below the Prime 20% off price of $39.99.

Usually these incremental price drops happen to games that have been out a while - I've never seen it happen to one that hasn't even been released yet.  FYI, the Vita version is still $39.96 so technically the PS4 price is even better than the Prime 20% off discount for Vita.

This weeks releases are fairly varied, but a few ports again this week. Ever Oasis looks the most interesting out of the bunch for sure. Though if you're playing Final Fantasy XIV, that expansion is probably pretty high for you. Besides those, God Wars does look slightly interesting and it's harder to pass up at its current Amazon discount. Oh and the Steam Summer Sale should start this Thursday.

It happens on occasion, but they're pretty rare on being more than 20% off.

Now it's down to $29.67...how low will it go?  The good thing about it being a preorder is you should get the lowest price before release date without hassle per Amazon's policy.

I played the Japanese demo of it and wasn't impressed. It was like FFT but tediously slow in comparison.

Ah my Record of the Argarest War and War Zero flashbacks are coming back! Those games had decent stories and characters, but man was that battle system was slow as heck. Hopefully it's not to that extreme. Honestly my favorite TBS in the past few years was Stella Glow. Fun graphics with good characters and an alright story made me bum rush through it. Only negative is some character endings are impossible on the first run through as you have limited time points. Bad developers bad! I always hate forced replaying!

Amazon is really slacking.

 

I can't preorder the special edition of Metroid: Samus Returns and I also can't preorder the remake of FF XII which comes out next month. Since I have no real big singleplayer games coming out until Mario and Rabbids (excluding Splatoon since I consider that multiplayer) thought I would pick up FF XII. Not even the regular edition of FF XII is available which I would be fine with.

Strange, I wonder what's up with FFXII, the pre-order has been up for awhile and the price was down to about 30% off.

I don't know. I mean I would pay whatever retail + prime discount is, not going to argue over a few bucks. I didn't realize it was that much off, but I have an email alert set though so hopefully they get either the reg or steelbook back in.

I just checked camelcamelcamel.com it was actually only $8 off at it's lowest, so not even the 20% off for prime. I was actually thinking of Walmart, it was down to $33, but that was 18 days ago. I just checked, it's back up to MSRP.

I'm not sure what's up with FF12. I had an order for the standard edition before the steelbook was announced I forgot to cancel. At Best Buy I'm locked out of making changes to the standard edition and have been for a few weeks.
