I personally would not spend 19.99 on it knowing what I know now having played it for a few hours. I'm not very familiar with push square but their review summed up my experience pretty spot on.

Blue Reflection is running around a girl's High School watching events by talking to characters. At some point each character arc will send you into an adventure field reminiscent of Atelier and require collecting items or battling a certain number of monsters to get an emotion crystal. In addition there will be missions to do the same thing. After doing enough missions the player can check in to start the next chapter. Characters are granted skill points for completing missions and that's the only leveling done in game. After enough side characters are introduced so the main 3 girls (known as Reflectors) get a new support character, large endurance bosses appear.

Mythras figure just got announced  :-

Oh nooooooo. Oh God... I found out about Mythra this weekend alongside this:

And now Gravity Rush 2 figures? 

 

So now I'm finding myself wanting five figures I typically don't buy (no...really, I - don't give me that look!). I'm torn between these figures or a set of Focal Clear. #FirstWeebProblems

I just had the weirdest dream about that Alisa figure...

 

 

Thing 1: Aaaaaaayyyyy Falcom asked us to make a figure for them.

Thing Boss: Nice, I always liked their characters.

Thing 2: Great now we can have Altina - 

Thing Boss: SHADDUP! *kicks Thing 2 to the ground* Well let's see the design.

Thing 1: Here, it's the Magical Alisa figure. As seen in Sen no Kiseki II and Tokyo Xanadu.

Thing Boss: Hmm...oh. 

Thing 1: What's wrong?

Thing Boss: The outfit. We can't afford that. And that design. That's too hard.

Thing 2: That's what she said - 

Thing 1 and Boss: SHADDUP! *both kick Thing 2* 

Thing Boss: Well you're the fanboy who sunk 1000 hours into their games. What do we do?

Thing 1: Um...how about....Oh! We put her in a swimsuit!

Thing Boss: That's....A GREAT IDEA! Wait, what's she look like in that?

Thing 1: Here lemme check. Going to load up Sen no Kiseki II. 

Thing Boss:  I'll come with you. *Gets up and leaves desk* Out of the way. *kicks Thing 2* Eh, what are you doing with a PS3 at your desk? 

Thing 1: PS3? Pfft, PCmasterrace fool. Complete with  the undub patch.

Thing Boss: Say PCMasterRace again and I'll kick you too.

Thing 1: Oh, sorry.

Seriously Capcom, you clowns couldn't put both sets on one cart? You guys are  Fuck ing useless! LOL

 

I guess I'll keep an eye out for an import that has both sets on there own individual carts, and has English as an option.

Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 + 2 launches May 22 for Switch
https://www.youtube....h?v=VI949Msniuo

At the end of the video in small print they say Mega Man Legacy 1 is on cart and Legacy 2 is a download code. Why you do this Capcom? The same freaking thing is happening with Bayonetta Switch. This frustrates me, because I like my games physical and on disc/cart.

I was really considering buying this collection again, because I thought it would be cool to have all 10 games together on one cart, but now I don’t know.

I love and hate Amazon. I ordered Blue Reflection on Sat and it's already arriving today even though I used free non-prime shipping, but they are slow on delivering the preorders of my other games.

Splitting up both Bayonettas makes some sense if they're larger-sized games, but I agree that not including all of the MM Legacy games on one cart is just stupid and lazy to the nth degree.

I thought Switch was going to be the console where ooooh how cool would it be to have all of these games in hybrid portable-TV form; I'm going to buy all sorts of cool games for the Switch!

 

Nope, hasn't happened. 

 

Even cross-platform releases I find myself still buying them for the PS4 when given a choice.  I think the tiny cover art and the stupid red spines have something to do with it.  PS4 stuff gets clearanced cheaper too.  The number of Switch ports of games I have previously purchased has already become overwhelming too.

Switch is all about the exclusives, just like every other Nintendo console. It's not portable enough for me to really factor in that aspect of it. I can take my Vita/3DS with me really easily just on the off chance I have time to play. Switch is more of a hassle. So if I'm going to be playing on TV, can't think of a reason to get the Switch version over PS4.

It's annoying to see people always doing

 

"I don't want to look like I'm port begging, but is this coming to the Switch? As you know, I only buy for the Switch now."

Went ahead and pulled the trigger on Tokyo Xanadu eX+ since the limited edition is currently sitting at $61.72 new on Amazon. I had been watching it slowly tick down from $70 over the last few days and I am sure it is going to drop a bit more but the few dollars are not going to break the bank. Had $33 in amazon money anyway so $35 out the door with free same day deliver makes it the bee's knees.

Multi plats almost all wind up on PS4 for me as well. Better value per dollar, better ecosystem and online, and unfortunately for Nintendo I enjoy trophies as do a lot of gamers apparently. I still play my switch quite a bit but until they finally kill the 3ds and start bringing all those titles over it gets 2nd or 3rd billing most of the time.

More than likely, yeah. You could get the Special Edition from the Amazon Warehouse starting at $67.xx
