There's DailyGameDeal, but he/she has a lot of post overlap with Wario64.

 

Also DealSeeker2U if you're interested in Amazon Warehouse stuff.

 

Since they both use affiliate links I probably shouldn't link them directly.

Thanks appreciate it.

Why? The games look about the same, and are way cheaper on the Wii U.

Weekly free PSN junk:

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round
PS4
- Marie Rose Opoona Outfit (PS+ Only)

Senko no Ronde 2
PS4
- Voice Pack

Nights of Azure 2
PS4
- Special Theme


This weeks weekly sale is Sale of the Dead Week 1. It has a few thread related games in the sale. Also it seems that Chaos;Child did release this week, but digital only? Physical is next week. Weird that they're separate when the release dates are so close to each other.

Thanks, Draekon, but that Nights of Azure 2 Theme must be part of a cruel joke. Lol

I just got done watching Fate stay night Unlimited Blade Works for the very first time.   It was good, but not as grand as I was expecting.   Maybe its a thing with me, that I always tend to like the first movie in a trilogy, or the original source material the most.  I expected a lot more story development with both Illya and Sakura. 

 

Really looking forward to seeing Heaven's Feel now that I've finally watched and enjoyed all three series. 

Both those characters get their info covered in the prequel anime so that may be why as giving their info in this spoils the stuff from the prequel and you'd know who the main villains are in the current one among other spoilers. 

Spoiler

I do agree that they could have covered some things though.

I read some of the reviews for Gundam Versus. Then I immediately went to Amazon, and ordered a copy of Gundam Versus. I was iffy on the game up until the reviews came out. I'm a pretty big Gundam fan, but there have been plenty of Gundam games that were all fan-service, and no substance under the hood. (mediocre to weak mechanics) But this title sounds like the gameplay is there, as well as some surprisingly good multiplayer support on-line. The lack of local multiplayer or split-screen is unfortunate, but comrpomises must be made somewhere. And the fan-service has not been skimped on either, as the base game's roster is 94 playable suits deep.

 

My best friend is an even bigger Gundam fan than I am. I'm going to bring my PS4 over to his place and show this baby off. Maybe I'll finally be able to convince him to upgrade to a PS4.

I honestly just want a Gundam RPG like Battlefield Record 0081. That should've been the game we got for PS3 instead of the pos that was Crossfire. 

 

And another Gundam Vita game like SEED Battle Destiny

I'd love to see a follow up to MS Saga: A New Dawn. That is one of my all time favorite hidden gem JRPGs. The story was pretty mediocre (which is an absolute shame and should be fixed in a sequel) but the battle system, difficulty, and awesome amount of options present in the customization system for the mobile suits were absolutely top notch!

If you're talking about the UBW movie, you should watch the tv series instead. The tv series is amazing! Again though, there won't be much on Illya or Sakura. Illya, or at least her backstory, is better covered in Fate/Zero, and Sakura's story will be in Heaven's Feel.

both illya and sakuras backstories are covered in zero actually.  We just don't get to find out what happened inbetween zero and stay nite.

The only thing I want from a game like Gundam Versus is Domon Kasshu.

I know their stories were covered in Fate/zero.   However, they were throwaway characters in UBW with little character development.  As were several other main characters.  If you had no other frame of reference, while watching UBW you'd be wondering "who is this person Sakura and what is she doing cooking over at Shiro's house all the time" and "where does Illya fit into this story at all?  The show suggests that they are important characters and then has no follow-through.  Shinji was inexplicably terrible too. And the Rider class servant barely exists.

 

The show had several primary characters with ambiguous roles.  The story is too assuming, and glances over several plot elements. 

 

UBW was fine. It was good.  I just don't know why its received better and rated higher than the other two series when I thought it easily did a poorer job of storytelling and world-building.

This is why I like the Heaven's Feel story the best. More information/development on these characters that have been mostly left out in the other adaptations.

 

Also, it's all about Sakura (aka Best Girl)So that's a win for me.  :)

Yeah, he sucks in everything except Heaven's Feel though  ;)

From what I understand its because ufotable did the art for it mostly.  That and all the video games.  I agree poor rider class.  Especially when compared to the one from the prequel.
