I preordered this at my local store and apparently they are closing for good today.  Got an email saying my preorder was moved to the next closest store (around 11 miles away) and I was provided a 20% off coupon (good on anything but hardware) for my inconvenience.  Couldn't have been better timing to save $30 off the CE, but driving the extra miles to get it is a slight pain in the ass.

Count yourself lucky, as I'm surprised they even bothered to contact you honestly. LOL

So digital only then uh? LOL

I don't think that's the case going by the amazon listing.

Hopefully this close relationship between SE and Nintendo will lead to a western release of DQ10 on the Switch. Would be a great launch title for Nintendo's online.

I put up a post in this threads PS Community asking for days/time frames that people are available for some Monster Hunter World sessions. So if anybody is interested they can reply there and I'll setup a future event. If there isn't any replies, I'll just set one for a Saturday or Sunday evening and go from there.

 

I'll also be playing this with a friend in a 2-person group, so anybody else is welcome to join me as well. Just shoot me a friend request on PSN which is the same name as I use here or find me in the PSN Community's members list as I'm pretty high up due to being a mod. You're welcome to just pop into our party chat. He and I will be playing a bit this weekend I'd wager.

I did not see one person finish the demo at SDCC. It's a little sad. It feels so... slow? It feels like an early 90s game in terms of pacing. Run across this big barren town 3 times for this errand. Judging by where everyone abandoned the demo, no one can stand 10 minutes of that.

What is the name of the PSN community? I think I missed joining when that was all going on. I’ll definitely be playing MHW. I’m really glad to see it back on a Sony system. Idk why but I couldn’t get into the 3DS games after playing the PSP ones.

That wouldn't surprise me. My friend played the demo and pre-ordered it, so I could play it if I wanted at some point. However like you mentioned, it feels old school while not incorporating much of any of the improvements from newer generations of games. At least that's how Setsuna felt to me. I haven't played the demo for this game yet.

Apparently BRW changed the name. It's now named "CAG Japanese Niche Games Community & Backloggers Anonymous". The icon for it is typical CAG colors of black/green/orange/off-white. If you're friended with someone in this thread, they may already be in it. In which case you can look at their joined communities and join through them.

 

It's no longer invite only, but if necessary just give me your PSN tag and I can invite you that way as well.

Tokyo Xanadu eX+ Limited Edition for PS4 has dropped down to $95 on Amazon (MSRP $150), for anyone still interested.

Vita version is listed at 42$ and the ps4 version as of this post dropped to 91.xx


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

Before anybody considers buying the Vita version over the PS4 version. The Vita version does not have the extra eX+ content and the translation is worse from what I hear as they updated it for the eX+ version but did not patch it into the Vita version.

 

If you're just after the extra swag that comes with the LE, then that's a different story.

I'm still salty they teased that Sexy Nerdy Redhead look, then gave us this as the playable version. I mean the Buu design is still cool and unique but I miss the Sexy Nerdy Redhead version.

Yeah, thanks for clarifying! Also, I think the PSN community search works if you type in any words in the title, so typing in "CAG Niche" gives me the result for the niche community.

Does it tell you who changed the wallpaper now as the owner of the community? I just got kinda tired of seeing non-gaming images as the background and figured now is as good as time as any to update it.

Downed Nergigante on my 3rd try with less than a minute ingame time and 12 minutes of Beta time to spare. Double buzzer beater.

 

90% sure I'm gonna be sticking with the Bowguns for now, most players seem to be playing Melee, so having some consistent long range damage really comes in handy. Though I might default back to my love of the Hunting Horn and Switch Axe

No it doesn't lol, I just assumed though. Heh heh sorry, I just love cosplay too much. Plus, the eye candy is clickbait, and probably got a few more members to join. There was only one other instance I think where the wallpaper was changed, to a Persona 5 one, but I have no clue who did it, I always assumed Neomonk for that one.

If only they had it like their previous games, where for P4A we got Labrys/Shadow Labrys, and P4AU had Minazuki/Persona Minazuki. We could've had Sexy Nerdy Redhead 21/Majin 21.

Now that the MHW betas are probably over for good, my kills aside from the four quest monsters include Kulu-Ya-Ku and Jyuratodos. Also fought a Rathalos and a Pukei-Pukei (ran out of time on the former and lost track of the latter).

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.

Didn't realize how much I've missed playing Monster Hunter until I randomly matched up with a solid party and we beat Nergiante with less then 30 seconds to spare.  I channeled my inner GUTS and was able to get a lot of good hits on it with the Great Sword. Party rolled with dual blades, long sword, and the bow.

So what's the deal with the Shadow of the Colossus Special Edition? Did I just miss the pre-order window since I'm slow?

 

Everywhere I look has it unavailable, which is pretty confusing.

Wow.....got my Digimon Cybersleuth Hacker's Memory from Amazon and basically half of the entire top casing (Right around where the spine starts) is totally broken. Like pieces were scattered inside of the case when I opened it (It was so damaged the plastic wrapping was basically halfway off before I even touched it). If it were just the case I wouldn't be as mad, but the artwork is ripped a good inch or two down as well.

 

Never had a game come this damage in the mail before. Time to deal with some Amazon customer service bs.

 

EDIT: Yup, either refund or ship it out and wait for a replacement to come later. I just took the refund lol, got the pre-order code so I'll just get a copy down the line when the price falls.
