Visual novel ChuShingura46+1 looking to release in English on Steam

 

I don't know how well it would do since it's Kickstarter tanked.

Below you can find some pics of the my Euro CE of Estival Versus. The box is really well made and durable and the coloring on it really stands. The character cards don't seem to be as good as the US version, but the soundtrack and artbook are really nice touches. On to the daki...IT'S GLORIOUS. While not favorite characters from the series, the material is really nice. Would be great to actually sleep on, not that I will sleep with it. I'd say its about the equivalent of those really expensive Japanese dakis.

For $100 shipped i think it was a pretty good deal. It has my seal of approval.

Thanks for the pics. The packaging is definitely a lot better. Not just the reversible cover, but the cd package as well.

Mildly interested in Hellblade, but then I saw it's being made by Ninja Theory.  Capcom isn't there to make sure their gameplay is at least sort of okay this time.

They opened up preorders to US residents about a month or so before launch. Wished they still had the figure edition in stock, but those sold out fast.

Call NISA's support: (714) 540-1185

It's hard to get them to do shit by eMail, but they'll take care if it really quickly by phone.

I'm gonna let you know that I emailed them asking to cancel an order and waited a whole month without reply. I'm pretty sure I even emailed them twice.

So, I've figured out the keys to getting a prompt response from NISA's email contact. Polite emails and waiting a week or whatever are totally not the way to go. They're getting a large volume of emails to manage (a whole 250 emails a week, golly), so you gotta stand out.

 

Step 1: Fill out the subject line of the email form ALL IN CAPS AND ANGRY!!!???!1!

Step 2: For the body of the email, try to insult them. But don't swear (that's rude), call them incompetent morons or something.

Step 3: There's a pulldown box to select the theme/reason for the email. Don't bother choosing, you can pick them all by copy/pasting your message to multiple email submission forms.

Thats been my previous experience. Which is mediocre, but passable. I contacted them on the first when Hundred Knight obviously didn't ship out, then waited a week with no response, sent more messages cutting wait times down till I was sending them daily messages the last few days. Their new sale pissed me off, if they're slow enough to need to do sales, they can answer their damn emails.

I played 13 strikes of Aegis Earth tonight. Really enjoying it so far, the first boss battle was a little more involved than I expected in a good way.

Nice to see it up, though without an LE there's no need for a rush. I understand putting that there's less of a need for it with the box from the first game, but they still could have put one out with a soundtrack or something.

Amazon doesn't have the 20% off listing yet though. Could it be... I placed an order just in case. If I don't get the double 20 off then I'll cancel and hold out for awhile.
