Didn't notice there was a bundle. I have Rose already but was looking to get the older ones. The bundle is the same as getting them separately though.

Turns out I was wrong. The bundle is actually both games in one file. So it's a single skittle on your home screen, and you can't download/delete one without the other. If I'd known I probably would have bought them separately.

The Vita version of Nights of Azure is the one I played, did not finish it due to the pixelated graphics, but I really like the setting and characters.

When Gust went all in on the PS4, they lost the PS3 version that could be used as a base for a port to the VIta. It's not just Nights of Azure but anything post-Atelier Sophie.

Sorry, I didn't know it was going to be a single file myself. I've only played htoLNIQ standalone since I have it physically for my vita. Bright side is it forces to to play both one after the other? The games are related so...yea 😅

I know a lot of people here are looking forward to Yakuza 6. It doesn't seem like most got the full game free via the 'demo' about a month ago. Even if you did though, you should still buy the game. Other than that you've got God of War and those Nintendo Labo cardboard games. I wonder how the Labo will be received long term beyond 'interesting and creative' honestly.

Other stuff that released without warning last week or I overlooked it (Assume PC unless otherwise noted):
- Lobotomy Corporation (Simulation)
- Glory of the Self-Styled Diehard girl (Visual Novel)
- Dead In Vinland (SRPG / Survival / Management)

I would have preferred them to be remade with whatever Engine they used for Shenmue 3 than a remaster especially since it's an earlier 3D game.

Did you watch the footage? It looks more like a maybe 4k port that's untouched otherwise. I'm leery.

 

 

Also I liked Nights of Azure a fair bit. Got the plat on PS4. Graphics, settting, and soundtrack are definitely the higher points. Combat is repetitive and the plat is pretty grindy due to a poor quest system and getting to max level (if you care about plats.) I can't recommend it at the sale price at all, but I do suggest giving it a try through a cheaper sale or some alternative (Gamefly or whatever.)

Sega Ages on the Switch already sounds pretty great (Phantasy Star remake, hnnnnggg), but to get Saturn and Dreamcast games on the platform would be a dream.

In case anyone was on the fence between the "Essence of Art" and "After Hours" editions of Yakuza 6, know that the Essence of Art package is a bit like the Tomb Raider 20 year celebration edition for PS4 which is a small art book that doubles as a DVD holder. Not a fan of those so I will stick with my After Hours edition.

Don't rule it out down the line. Similar thing happened for the 3DS (except we got vol 2 rebranded as vol 1, I think, and never got the "sequel")

Yep. Even if it's JPN only, at least the Switch is Region Free. Amirite? :lol:
