Same here. Checked the junk/spam folder too, nothing.

Dragon Ball FighterZ Apparently Has Loot Boxes

 

Damn it all....  If it's any type of real cash microtransaction loot box bullshit this has gone from a must have day 1 buy from me to I'm never going to touch it as I hard line stance against any pay loot box mechanic cosmetic or otherwise.

 

Even if they are the non pay type, this is going to make me think twice about picking up this game anytime soon as I'm getting sick and tired of the industry trying to push these damn things as the norm.

It looks like avatar only. Im okay with that. Unless you guys want your avatar to look cool.

Even if it's just avatar stuff, if it's pay for I won't buy the game on principle.

 

Looking around a bit more it's looking like they're the non-microtrasnaction type, no real money involved.  However it still looking awfully shady that they might have plans to implement pay for post launch down the line as if they're not why are they bothering having two different form of in game currencies for them.

 

Regardless my enthusiasm for this game has been taking down a notch or two.

Amazon has started some manner of February anime-themed sale, including games and manga. Hopefully, this will translate into some decent deals. At the moment, the only real bargain is the Gundam Vs. Deal. It's coming in around $25 at the moment, which is a very good deal. I feel a little silly having pre-ordered the game. (and still haven't played it properly) The holiday season was very busy. But the game has had a solid critical response, and is reported to be especially appealing for long-term Gundam fans. At $25 it is probably worth consideration.

 

Aside from that, I'm not seeing much in the way of deals.

I tried the DBFz beta it was a lot of fun even though I lost to all 5-10 people I played against lol

 

I think I miiight have won once during a rematch, at least

 

I also tried out the Dissidia beta and enjoyed it as well. Am I right in hearing people don't like it though? If so maybe I should try the originals on PSP which were well received. I've been playing FFV so it's cool to see the protagonist, Bartz, as a playable character

I'm a big fan of the original Dissidia, don't care at all for the new one.

Relax, all the loot box stuff is cosmetics. Most are for the in-game lobby system.
Also, the loot boxes use in-game currency, not real money. Even the "premium-z coins" are in-game.

Yep.   The small stuff like loot boxes for simple lobby avatars is just the first step.

it's probably similar to guilty gear xrd fishing for cosmetic for lobby avatar and character's colors. it gives you something extra to do in hope of getting something.

My enthusiasm was already down due to the character season pass and knowing there will be an extended release with everything down the line. 

 

I honestly rather wait to see what these Loot Boxes are. Are they free? Do you unlock them with accomplishments? All someone said was "I got it from a Lootbox"

Is anyone buying The Lost Sphere physical release from Square Enix?

I want the game but do not like spending $50 on a digital game.

Just wish Amazon or Gamestop had it as I do not like going through them.

Yeah, I've got a Switch and PS4 copy coming. I don't take chances on releases like this. It's very possible that they'll have stock for half price next BF, but I'm okay with spending more for the piece of mind that I'm not gambling with missing it.

Great advice actually, as I was planning to do the same, and I'm years away from even getting an NS. As stated, it could be on clearance in 6 months, or gone in 6 weeks, just no way to tell. We can't all get a deal on every purchase, but buying this now is a good calculated risk.

I played I Am Setsuna on PC and will be getting Lost Sphere on it as well, but i'm likely in the outlier for that. I want that PS4 Secret of Mana though for the local multiplayer I believe.

Got my copy of Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory (PS4) today, and been poking around to see if I could find the original Cyber Sleuth on there like Japan got. It doesn't seem to be there. Does anyone know if it's supposed to be? I never found any official confirmation one way or the other.

are you asking if Cyber Sleuth is included with Hacker's Memory? Or all the stuff that was in Cyber Sleuth can be found in Hacker's Memory (Digimon, many of the maps/areas)

I actually just read people mentioing Japan got the original game too with this new one.  Pretty neat, but people were making it sound like that was exclusive to the JP version.  I'm not sure, because I didn't see many people talking about it, and it was the first I had heard about it.  I also just found out apparently you can't play as a girl in this one :cry:

 

I loved the first one, so it was a day one buy for me regardless.  I'm hoping Best Buy comes through with the DLC.  They never had it listed on their site, but the support forums + namco's site both said BB was getting it =\

Hahahah. Ys VIII for PC has been indefinitely delayed again. Wow. Did they not test the PC version until after they gave a release date after the previous indefinite delay? Seriously.
