Speaking of Switch, anyone know if GCU is currently the best deal for XBC2?


I just checked and GCU is the best deal for XBC2 as of right now.

Well, while some of you guys are worried about Little Witch Academia - Chamber of Time coming out in English, I don't think its coming out this week, probably not even a stealth drop, since it wasn't mentioned on this weeks PS Blog "The Drop" article.

 

However, Bamco wasn't silent about it and mention its still coming, later on, so a small delay I assume, or surprise stealth release?

Update, however, a listing over the Singaporean PS Store for the game lists a March 26th date. So the same maybe for the US?

That's the kind of game I'd get on the Switch if it were multiplatform.

I've found that the PS Blog is wrong incredibly often actually. Although it does seem like it may not actually release this week.

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. 

It is always interesting to see what sets people off. Perhaps I *should* have eschewed engineering and went into psychology. The human mind is fascinating....

The mind of a human collector is probably one of the most fascinating of all. lol

Please please please let this be true:

This is the second time in so many days that there's been word of a potential Sonic racing follow-up from developer Sumo Digital, and the rumor-fire is being stoked once again.

Yeah, I've got my fingers crossed as well. Sonic Transformed was the only kart game worth playing in God only knows how long. I would love to throw some funds at a new version, no doubt.

I love all the free themes PSN has been giving us over the last year.  :bouncy:  The new Secret of Mana theme is nice. I have used the RWBY theme for the longest amount of time; it has a soothing melody.

I've been using the 20th Anniversary Theme since it came out. Mostly due to the startup noise.

Well...for those on the fence of Little Witch Academia...

 

It's not going to be a $60 game...is it?

Nope, $50, however, its product page is up on the US PS store, and will be delayed to an unspecified date. The release date is practically a placeholder for now. What I can say however, that's a bit too much for LWA in my eyes, lol. But you do get the Grand Charion bonus.

That's disappointing. I don't know if I'm missing something, but it looks like a budget game.

 

Also disappointing if that 6/29 date is real.

Thanks to those who provided feedback on Blue Reflection. I ended up ordering it (in stock for shipping as of this post, but had been oos for a while). It may be a bit slow, but the art and music won me over. Worth a shot at $16.

 

-Update- Oos again.

I don't think I've switched out of the Bloodborne one since that game came out. Everything else is too bright and flashing, I prefer the bland gray background and somber music, lol.
