I checked out with the Metroid but it said it was sold out...but I wanted the Smash Bros. for the Wii U when the price dropped (as I had it on the 3DS)...Went for Paper Mario as well.  Hopefully better than the last game.

I knew KT games usually go out of stock quick once they hit $20 on BB, but Blue Reflection didnt even last 5 hours on sale. 

How many copies did BB have on hand, 2 of them?

I was just able to place a Blue Reflection order for pickup on Thursday. Shipping was available too for 3.99 (no dollar off for pick up though :( )

I guess they didn't have many but I wouldn't be surprised if it came back in stock like Toukiden 2.  T2 was sold out for a long time then suddenly showed up again a few days ago (but looks like its sold out again).

 

Amazon finally matched Gamestop on Blue Reflection and School Girl/Zombie Hunter:

I snagged a Nights of Azure 2 for pickup Friday. The alternate in store pickup location I chose went out of stock while I was looking for directions.

It'll come with those same dumb poles that the Homura figure has. Then again these figures aren't exactly made for people who have a bunch of figures already since they take up so much real estate.

Man when Mithra joined, I never saw Pyra again until cutscenes. Freakin love those blondes, plus those boobs. Mithra's kit was also WAY better.

Is it just me, or does she look a little skinny here? I always remembered 2B being a little more thicc. The thighs especially...

Just for anyone that is curious about the difference between the Rice Digital Muv-Luv CE sets, compared to the KS versions, I just got a response that made it clear the KS CE will be far superior,

 

"We can't fully disclose this yet, but rest assured the Rice Digital Limited Editions are totally different, and its "extra" item(s) aren't even close to the value of a single exclusive item that's included in the backer's collector's box. Even the digital versions are significantly cheaper in Kickstarter."

 

So that restores my faith in backing the KS version a little bit at least. ;D

Wondering if I should grab Nights of Azure 2 now or hold out for a better sale. It's out of stock for shipping but a few local stores have copies. How does it compare to the first game which I enjoyed enough to get the Platinum?

Is the Little Witch Academia game digital-only? Can't seem to find it at any retailers, but it's possible I'm just inept this early in the morning.

I can't seem to find it either.  But I had noticed that Play-Asia has a NA version for pre-order, so I had assumed it was coming physical. I also didn't realize it was coming out already.

If the game is coming out next week and you don't see it on Amazon/GS/BBY, it is digital.  Play-asian been wrong before.
