In order words, Sonic Adventure 3 will only happen if their new Sonic game doesn't suck and is actually good for once? (Mania is good, just saying their other games have been lackluster)

It hasn't.  They have many people on their Facebook saying the same.  Apparently, they plan to start shipping today (i.e. release day) which is pretty crappy.  I thought they fixed this issue a few releases back, but apparently they haven't learned.

Love dem $20 HD remakes.  I will be picking this up for sure.  

 

I saw Resident Evil Revelations 1 on the sales floor at Best Buy today too.  Kinda cool that they just need to do 2 & 3 now and then all of the main RE games will be on PS4 in individual volumes.    I used to give Capcom grief for milking everything, but what they have been doing is very customer (young gamer, new console owner, collection oriented gamer) friendly. 

 

Still have so many remakes to buy from the last year on PS4.  Including the Nonary Games, Danganronpa 1&2, Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5, Zero Escape, Crash Bandicoot, and the Wipeout Omega collection.  Got to get this stuff soon while its all amicably priced.  It will be hard to find soon and then the prices will shoot up.  Nonary Games is already gone from BB and hard to find at retail unless you want a generic case from Gamestop.  Looks like they just got it back in-stock at Amazon, it was gone for awhile. 

 

I was hoping to make it to Black Friday for some of these games but that'll probably be pushing it.

I like Overlord.

I liked it as well.  My favorite thus far has to be log horizon of the newer in a online game animes..  .hack sign and code lyoko are some of my other favorites.  

 

I wish they had an Overlord game

Yeah its a shame it doesn't have one.  But I heard its getting a second season supposedly so I am ok with that.

I'm just gonna ask this here because I know there are some knowledgeable collectors frequenting this thread.

 

Does anyone know a safe way to clean PS1 games? I mean mostly for removing things like fingerprints. I generally use a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol on other disc-based games, but have found with PS1 games, even with the lightest touch, it causes tons of very light scratches that are only visible under light.

I don't understand how cotton is leaving imprints on my games with barely any pressure. It's like the CDs are coated in a soft gel or something. How does plastic scratch by barely brushing cotton upon it?

 

Has anyone else experienced this? If so, have you any solutions?

Not sure if they way I do it is correct or does any long term damage but...

 

I use a microfiber made for lens and a little distilled water - just enough to dampen the cloth. I gently clean from the center to the edge.  I do that for all my disc based games, and I have had pretty good luck.

Yea, I was definitely gonna look into using a microfiber cloth, but I didn't know how they did with getting wet.

I'll probably try your method, but would like to hear some input from others, as well. It's been driving me nuts. I can't figure out how it's possible for PS1 discs to scratch so easily, and when I look online, it doesn't seem like others are having this same problem.

lol i just gave up. fingerprints were impossible to cleanly remove with any method i tried and i'd rather have fingerprints than scratches in most cases.

New Front Mission! Ah but it's a 3rd person shooter. Sounds like it has potential if they can make some titanfall-esque gameplay with mgs stealth and decent wanzer action.

Yep, same for me(slow bastards). LOL

 

Honestly, I wasn't in a rush either way, as it's going on the lifetime backlog pile anyways. Iffy is normally great on packaging, as their rivals NISA for sure, but they have a lot to learn from then in regards to release dates. I've gotten most of my NISA orders before the actual release date more often than not, with very few arriving on release, and maybe one that arrived after.

I forgot is it wrong to get boobs rubbed in your face in a dungeon was even getting a game.  I can't tell what type of gameplay that's even going to have looking at the screen shot.  I assume its an srpg like tears to tiara 2 since they had similar story 2d character art portraits to chibi character models.

Looks like a real-time hack-n-slash dungeon crawler, like like your Diablos, Mana games (Adventures of Mana, Children of Mana), etc.

 

Typically hate the Japanese ones of these, because they usually require no skill and just button spam the entire game.

I really hope MHW supports PS4/PC crossplay. I've never actually been that interested in multiplayer MonHun, but I think MHW might be a decent way to introduce the series to some of my PC friends, who mostly go for online multiplayer stuff. Either way, also hoping for a collector's edition stateside that doesn't suck ass.

Will this run at more than 15 FPS? I mean, this is Konami we're talking about.

And if you missed that sale, it's actually half a buck cheaper on IndieGala.

$22.99 seems to be the historical low, too.

Unfortunately, there will be no crossplay. Meanwhile, the collector's edition for NA will have the same content as Japan's.
