:ps4: Dragon Quest Heroes II Explorer's Edition has been fluctuating in price on Amazon: https://www.amazon.c.../dp/B01NCBTOO7/

 

Last few days it has been in the $24-26 range, but every so often it drops even lower. I ordered last night at $21.62.

 

saw that was pissed since i ordered it over a week ago when it hit 31$, seems their moving out inventory and soon will be sold to third party seller stores, well still saving half off from msrp is still good for a ok game

It's $16.10 right now O_o Hopefully it doesn't go back up before I can price match it at BB

The 16.10 price is from Deep Discount. Plus you have to pay for shipping

 

Hope it's $10 at Black Friday like the first one was

DQ Heroes 2 is sweet. Just wish it had real coop.

 

Not sure what it is with the Warriors games as of the past few years not only dropping online coop, but sometimes just completely not having it at all.


you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

So I got pretty far into Cyberdimension Neptunia, and I thought I'd share some thoughts on it. My little review won't be as great and detailed as something like Draekon's, Nitrosmob's, or Sovereign's, but I'll try my best to bring up some key points.

 

So first up, the game is actually, really, really good!

 

tenor.gif No way right!?

 

I might be a bit biased since I'm a Neptunia Superfan, but it's the best in the series imo (even though that's not saying much.) Its so good, it actually doesn't even feel like a Neptunia game.

 

Pros:

  • The graphics are much better in this game than anything previous to it. It probably looks better than most other JRPGs on the market now, maybe with the exception of Persona and Tales of. To compare, the graphics look like Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I've never played BOTW, but from trailers/reviews I've seen it, and the open plains stage looks identical. The grass, water, environment, etc. is greatly improved and looks beautiful.
  • Gameplay is very fluid and face-paced. It's still a bit button-mashy, but there's skills, jumping, blocking, parries, dashing, etc. I guess I'd compare it to SAO or Tales of, combat styles, not musou but an Action-RPG. I also think the gameplay is waaay better than the combat in FF15, and that FF15 should've had a system more like this one.
  • Character play styles are pretty diverse, each character is a different class, which has a variety skills, and plays their own style. Some are rush down, some keep away, some healers, some buff givers.
  • Story is great, first time you actually get to see all 4 goddesses act like sisters, and not enemies or mere companions. The other games, Neptune, Noire, Blanc, and Vert were all separated early on, or weren't really in the game much. Here they interact well, and have some hilarious moments together. Not to go into spoilers, but you are technically playing them, who are also playing themselves in the game. So the 4th wall breaking moments are delightful and plentiful, and you've probably never played a game like that.
  • The online is super fun! I would actually love it if the game was an MMO. It's smooth when you find someone with a good connection. There's a neat chat system and you can free-type. Joining/leaving games is quick. And there's exclusive coop missons, so it's not like you replay something you beat, where both friends have to beat it first, like Nioh or DQH2.

Cons: (These aren't really cons, but more like nitpicky little things I didn't like.)

  • During dialogue segments, the characters are no longer dynamic, so they don't breath, or blink, or move their lips when they talk. There's slight transitions, but it's more like Persona 5 now. It's understandable, since they had to do all their animation work from scratch with the new costumes.
  • The camera sucks. It always gets blocked by trees or branches, or goes into weird angles.
  • Loading is a little too long sometimes, especially when you boot up the game.

 

So overall, it's a terrific game! Not just for a niche game, or for a JRPG. But just in general it's fun and well polished. It stands up to even some AAA titles, like I'll say it's better than FF15 in some ways. So definitely give it a try! And feel free to ask if you have any questions!

Week 8 of the release bonanza or week 7 for Japanese niche only releases. A few games high on peoples wishlist this week I'd wager. Summon Night 6 is still MIA with Vic still unable to properly tell time. It's even listed on the weekly Playstation blog as releasing this week again. He probably shouldn't say anything until he has the physical copies in his possession, then give a month release announcement from there. Chaos;Child should also be next week despite Playstation listing it as this week.

Its so good, it actually doesn't even feel like a Neptunia game.

The highest praise a compile heart game can get.

 

 

GMG has a coupon for 10% off all games. Works on already discounted games. Code is SUCHWOW10.

If you wanted to get Nights of Azure 2 this is the lowest price it's been at $36.(I knew I should've waited)

On the flip side they raised Battlefront 2's price back to msrp. No discount really kills my interest in getting it. I hope they bring the discount back.

4 Goddesses Online actually paid a few homages to Persona 5, which I thought was pretty cool. Might just be coincidental though.

 

There's a reaper boss that appears if you stay in a dungeon for too long. Vert has a few segments where she talks about the origins of different tea leaves, kinda like how Sojiro talked about different coffee beans. Characters have some back and forth conversations while in the dungeons now, with their icon showing in the corner when they speak.

Hell, they should be sending interest earning reports to you guys as well, as there should be a good amount earned over all this time. LOL

You'd have to be a damn good investor to offset six unplanned months of operational costs with interest earnings.

1 Week ago

Vic: I'll be sending out 'last call' emails in the next few days.

Today

*Vic finally sends out 'last call' emails*

 

 

And eh, it's more of a fan service game with them bringing a bunch of past characters together. It'll probably be pretty decent compared to the stuff we get these days, but much of it will be lost on people in the west since we never got any of the main Summon Night games until the fifth one.

 

I hope they update the earlier games in the Summon Night series for modern consoles/handhelds and they get brought over to the west by someone like Atlus or XSeed. They were pretty good games gameplay wise and had a pleasing aesthetic. Granted I never understood what was really going on in the story when I played them.
