Made some progress in .hack//g.u. ps4 almost to the final battles for the first tournament.  Happy that I am blazing through this since I want to get to 12 games finished this year at the least.


Currently on the look out for a decent price on Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness.

Amazon typically has some niche game deals this weekend - is there a schedule anywhere for titles that will be on sale?  Or do they just randomly throw up stuff without warning?

Well, enjoy your Thanksgiving everyone. Would post a related image or something, but this is a US only holiday. So it's a pain to find something decent.

 

If you haven't been keeping up with the Steam thread, then Steam started their Autumn Sale the other day. It lasts until next Tuesday. If you have the Enhanced Steam addon installed and have been wishlisting games, then you can just look through that list to see if there are any discounts that you're interested in.

To my knowledge, some can be found on the Black Friday Deals Week Page and then refining the page to PC & Video Games. Others just seem to randomly pop up without prior notice on occasion. Could be wrong though. However Amazon's game related sales have been pretty poor the last couple holiday seasons.

 

All I really see now is Persona 5 for $30 and Yakuza Kiwami Steelbook for $20.

 

EDIT: Typos.

I should mention I beat Demon Gazer II. It was kinda ehh. Not bad, but not really good either. Just pretty average in my opinion.

I did obtain the Platinum trophy for the game. So it's not a hard one to obtain seeing as I was able to get it. Just play through the story, complete the mushroom/skull side mission and obtain all the demons (including the 5 optional or so; Post-game one not necessary)

The last patch allowed for global matchmaking, but it couldn't breathe any life into an already dead community. The last DLC that hasn't made it over to the west are the Valkyrie Drive characters.

Draekon I always bow down to your ability to finish games. Only thing I finish relatively quickly are VNs since I read quickly.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I cannot think of a single instance where an anime or niche game has had a thanksgiving moment, so this is the best I could find...

Don't do that too much though...  (I think this is the cruise ship episode where they get stranded on the sinking ship and then James' magikarp evolves into a gyarados. Not too sure, but I used to be able to remember all the exact details in each and every pokemon episode as a kid.)

If we get enough people on this thread to play it, and set up a session, we can revive the community! ...maybe...

Haha, I would love to actually have people to play it with for once! Even just the survival mode. 

 

Yeah, but most of the people who's had the game since launch probably are super high level or have amazing cards by now. I only played a few chapters of the story, so I'm nowhere near that level yet.

If you guys want to play Peach Beach Splash, or set up a gaming session sometime, join the PSN community for the niche thread. It's probably the easiest way to get everyone together, especially since it's a PS4 exclusive.

 

You can look up "CAG Japanese" and it'll be the 1st result that pops up called "CAG Japanese Niche Games Community." You won't miss it, there's a super cute girl as the wallpaper (if that isn't incentive alone to look it up.) If you can't find it, PM me or leave a message here. Thanks!

 

P.S. There's a PSN Communities app too if you don't want to use it on the PS4.

Any opinions on whether physical copies of Yakuza 0 are likely to go lower than $30? On the one hand, I'm not going to be able to play it for several months at least, but on the other, I'm nervous it'll go out of print.

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.

The old Yakuza games were out of print for a while so I would not wait

This is probably one of the few times it will go on sale for a price that low

Like everyone else said. The other Yakuza games never got too low in price and by the time they did at places like GS they were basically sold everywhere. Admittedly Yakuza 0 sold better than previous games, but still. This is the lowest the game has been yet and just based on history it's probably not worth risking the wait for marginal amounts you might save. It's an incredible game too - very worth the price. I originally bought it digitally, but picked it up again during this sale just so I could have a physical copy.

I wouldn't sleep on Yakuza 0 or Kiwami. I slept on Yakuza 2 in the past and once it was discounted at Gamestop, I couldn't find it anywhere. Can't wait for Yakuza 6/2 Remake. I never played either so excited.

Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls just went up on Fanatical as a flash deal putting it at $11.99 + their 10% off coupon. Cost me $10.79 total which I believe to be the lowest this game has been since release.

After finishing Kiwami I ordered a copy of Yakuza 2 :ps2: off ebay so I could continue playing through the saga. The gameplay is super outdated and pretty terrible when compared to the modern games, but god damn the story is excellent. Can't wait for Kiwami 2. Gonnabe sooo good

That reminds me that Tales of Berseria is $17.32 after coupon. Not too bad but I've waited so long and don't intend to play it right away so I'll pass for now.

 

Btw, I went to gamestop to try to get the PS4 with $50 gift card but they were sold out of course. Really just need to get it in time for the Girls und Panzer game. Also I noticed in the trailer they used Panzerfahren as the translation for senshado, someone's been watching commie subs.
