Not as much into Otome games, but I'm getting all those Vita games. These are looking close to the last Vita physical games I may be getting coming out....but we'll see. It's likely it and the 3DS's last year for new game buying, which is fine. My backlogs for both are pretty big. I do want that Bowser's Inside Story....so that will be for next year at least.

 

Also am somewhat excited for Code Realize fan disk game. Original was a good VN with very good artwork and pretty good story. Need to finish a route or two though. The end of the month is for Funbag Fantasy: Side Boob story or whatever it's called.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 — 10th Anniversary Memorial Edition Unboxing

Spoiler

Hopefully we get some kind of special edition too, though I'm thankful we get the game at all. I imported the Japanese special edition for VC1 many moons ago, but I think I'll pass on importing 4.

Also with each new video I see, I'm slowly changing the game's name to Operation: Keep Kai and Ragnarok Alive.

Yeah, I don't really care about enhanced graphics or animation in a game like Yakuza, not even a little; so I have to justify that price tag based on the strength of any new additions, and that alone.

I loved Majima everywhere in Kiwami, but Kiwami 2 is starting to sound like it's just not worth the upgrade tax over the Japanese PS3 port. Maybe if it gets down to <$20 before the stock dries up.

I don't really care myself either since all that matters to me is if the gameplay is fun, and it was in Kiwami, I played the crap out of it and did everything. Mostly just pointing out that Kiwami was a really cheap project for them where as Kiwami 2 doesn't seem to be the case. I'd personally have no problem if they wanted to remake the game similar to how they did Kiwami but it's no surprise they wanted to use the engine for 6 and make it all fancy.

 

That said it's an easy buy for me since Kiwami is the only Yakuza game I've played, I am super excited for Kiwami 2.

Kinda off topic, but I saw the both the Futaba 1/7th Scale figure and the new Hinata one show up as available so I ordered them without hesitation....

So much for me saying, "I never buy figures anymore" lol. Guess I'm back to my old habits

Yea, I have ordered only a handful of figures in the past year or so. But I'm tempted by the Yukino Yukinoshita Yukata Ver. It's so titillating.

Somewhat NSFW:

Wow, Labrys as DLC for both games, that's awesome! Top 5 Persona waifu for me. I haven't been following the game's news lately, but I really hope FeMC makes it in now.

Really looking forward to these. Already have my Vita double pack preordered. I'll get the PS4 versions for the localized versions when they've tanked in price.

If it hasn't been mentioned yet, Amazon finally matched Gamestop on the $19.99 price for Nights of Azure 2 (PS4):

 

https://www.amazon.c...of+azure+2&th=1

 

Of note, Best Buy has been sold out of the PS4 version for a few weeks now so you may not see a lower price than this for a while.

 

Looks like the Switch version is still $29.96.

Thanks for pointing out Nights of Azure 2....think I'm going to pick up that school girl zombie whatever as well. Not ultra high priorities to play either, but I'll have them. Just a heavy month or so with pre-ordering Asia English April/May releases and stuff releasing at end of month (2 titles at end of the month).

Basically this. 

I hate the fact that they tank in price, last about a day or two then never come back in stock. 

If they do its rare, for a few hours then sold out indefinitely.

To make it worse, KT rarely put Gust games on sale digitally and when they do, its like max 40% off.

 

Still missing Atelier Sophie for my ps4 collection and im fine at this point not having it. 

 

I dont understand why KT has this fascination with Atelier games holding some magic high value when they're essentially the Sports game equivalent for JRPGs with their yearly releases. 

 

(Quick LOL! at just remembering the $90 Season Pass for Blue Reflection another Gust game.)

It's called Atelier Lydie and Suelle. It's out next week.

 

Also on the topic of older games, I went back remembering seeing a $20 Arland trilogy pack and now it's near $40+
