Thanks! Picked up my copy during lunch. It will sit next to the other seven Atelier titles i have and have not finished. =)

I am also wondering which of these are exclusives. Do they charge at time of preorder or once the game ships? Also, I'm aware that if you preorder multiple titles they send them all at the same time instead of when they come out, so I would end up doing three transactions.

No idea, but they won't have discounts if they go on Amazon anyways. And yes, they charge a week or so before it ships. And if you split it too much, you'll have to pay shipping multiple times.

Thanks for the info. Do you know how easy it is to cancel orders?

Some Overwatch news for those players here. Doomfist has finally been properly announced and is on the PTR servers on the PC, so expect him to go live in a few weeks. The PTR also is still testing the new lootboxes that significantly lower the chance of duplicates which will likely go live with Doomfist. His ability loadout can be found here. Doomfist is not voiced by Terry Crews. Plus some extra Doomfist lore that was posted a few days ago.

 

 

 

 

Reporting on console is still in development. If you haven't played in a while, the Moon Base level has been live for around a month now.

Just contact them, and they will cancel, no problem.

Thanks for the info. Do you know how easy it is to cancel orders? 

They send out emails when they're going to bill you soon, a week or two before an item's release date I believe. Those emails always have instructions to contact them if you need to change anything and usually indicate a specific subject line to make sure your ticket is prioritized with all the other similar issues.

 

I've had the most success contacting them after that email, and using the exact subject they indicate. When I do that they're always very understanding and do cancellations, separations, applying rewards points, giving rewards points if I forgot to log in and combining orders.

 

I've mostly been successful contacting them outside of these windows, but rarely I've sent an email and it's sat until the billing period was coming up for the associated product anyway. It almost seems like they beef up support around product releases, maybe, but I'm not sure.

 

In short I've never had problems cancelling something even if there's a long delay from support for whatever reason.

With NISA, you can't cancel orders online, but it's very easy to cancel an order if you call them.

Unrelated but if anyone lives in NYC, Bookoff is having their midsummer madness sale. Books/Dvds/Cds are 20% off. This excludes new items. They don't say it, but it probably excludes figures too.

LOL!  I now have Atelier Rorona Plus (PS3), Atelier Sophie and Atelier Firis.

 

Atelier Rorona is the only one I've played, but I enjoyed it.  Not a fan of having time limits you have to deal with, but it really wasn't that hard to hit all the goals before the days ran out.

BTW anyone waiting for a write up on Dal Segno after a route, been busy with family. Will likely start playing again today. So far story and characters are fairly weak. I'm not crazy about it, but it's alright so far. I always seem to choose the weirdest/worst characters first.

Japan’s first Splatfest for Splatoon 2 is rock vs. pop

 

This last one makes us at GGT very sad to not be able to support our K-Pop group.

 

If enough people here buy it, we can schedule games.

Edit: Reading that guy's post, I think I might just wait to see if a lot of other people here are picking it up at launch. So who is? If enough people are, I'll probably get it.

I think a few here imported the game already. I just hope they add more future content since aside from the crossover characters the game has only gotten 1 new map and 1 new mode "Capture the Flag Bra" along with 2 episode missions since release.

Was Coven and Labyrinth of Refrain actually confirmed for western release? I saved an article in my news reader from niche gamer, but it looks like they pulled it. I can't find much on the other normal sites about it.

 

http://nichegamer.co...or-ps4-ps-vita/

 

A google cache of the page has "NIS America has announced a western release for Coven and Labyrinth of Refrain.

 
The Nippon Ichi Software-developed dungeon RPG will launch sometime next year for both PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. The game’s western name will also drop the “and”, reducing it to simply Coven Labyrinth of Refrain.
 
Further details weren’t confirmed."
 
so not much info anyway.

Basically a "How to" get people uninterested in your product.


I feel like G.U. does a sufficient job of that all by itself.

I wish FLCL2 didn't exist, but at least the music will be worth it.


Are... are you me?

I'm not sure that paying $44 for a shitty looking fighting game is a good deal. I think I'll buy it at $20.


"Capcom game"

"Not Monster Hunter"

"Buy"

These are three concepts that don't even fit together in my mind anymore.

You couldn't help noting with every breath that thousands of other people were very close to you and nearly all of them had armpits.

I know I'm late to the party on this one, but just finished Nier Automata.  I was pleasantly surprised by it and ended up enjoying it much more than I thought I would.  My biggest take away from it was the music as I thought it was fantastic.  I am conflicted on the final ending(route e).

My internet connection is flaky, so the game had automatically kicked me to "Offline" mode earlier.  It took me nearly 10 hours - and I never want to hear that song again.  Ever.

 

Worth it, though next time I'd just cheat.
