All content from the other edition, but with extra stands.

Too bad it's missing the artbook =/

Well, at least with the straps being the only difference I can skip the more expensive version.

Anyone who who still has GCU with bestbuy, don't make any mistakes. BB is looking for any and every reason to cancel peoples GCU discounts. I had until 2021 and my membership was abruptly canceled for buying more than 3 copies of a game recently, the first time I had done so in a very long time. In past years though I did it all the time (A LOT) with no repercussions at all lol so my point is they'll cut you at the drop of a hat these days. Just a heads up.

The King of Fighters '98 & 2002 UM FE now available DRM Free on GOG

 

KOF '98 UM: https://www.gog.com/...._final_edition

KOF 2k2 UM: https://www.gog.com/....nlimited_match

These are the same games that have been available on steam just DRM Free. Also judging from the leader boards, the games don't appear to be linked to the steam version.

Both are on sale right now for 50% off each but if you buy them together it's 66% off, so both games for under $10 together.

I saw this yesterday as well. But this article says the the rumors stem from december of last year. game "journalists" really don't know the deep lore of the development of rumors and hints behind DMC5, which have stemmed from way before that. This is my most anticipated game.

Damm that yakuza news title is confusing. I thought it meant the yakuza remasters were going to be the American censored versions, but in reality they are the Japanese full versions but won't be getting the "kiwami" treatment for bonus content.

Is that what it means? I read the headline, then the article and was still confused. I know the US version still hasn't technically been announced but are they just going to up res the US version of the game then? Just confused how to make sense of it

You missed Vampyr, which comes out June 5th.

I didn't really overlook it. Do people want that on the list? Since I gather the list myself, I do some minor curation. As to why it wasn't added doesn't really matter, just whether people want me to add it to the list or not. There are some games in the past I've added that didn't belong, but I've largely left many off because I felt they didn't fit.

 

I really hope the next forum iteration works better for stuff like making a Wiki post so I can pull my weekly list from there like I used to before our Wiki broke.

I wasn't aware you curated your list, I just assumed you put up whatever the major releases are for the week and happened to miss the one I mentioned.  Nevermind then.

Draekon, FYI, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle does have a demo, but its for PS4 and Switch. (Regardless, it was already out in JP/Asia regions just a couple days ago, and its in full English right off the bat, its just the US will have to wait for theirs on Tuesday and EU/PAL regions on 6/22 with included Multi-5 [EFIGS] translation).

 

Also, remember that both Blake (which is forever free) and the DLC Character Pack 1 is free for 2 weeks on PS4/Switch, and 1 month on Steam, the steam version will also include the digital OST (15 tracks) and the Artbook that's included in the various physical LE's across the world. However, it will no longer be offered until after July 6th on steam for the DLC 1 Pack and the Artbook/OST. (Note: You'll have to buy the game first on steam, obviously, to get said bonuses.)

It's a Japanese Niche games thread. He doesn't just list every release. Vampyr is not a Japanese game.

It's a Japanese Niche games thread. He doesn't just list every release. Vampyr is not a Japanese game.

Well to be fair, I've posted stuff that shouldn't have really been included like Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, among others. My self curation rules are usually:

 

1) Is it Asian developed? Include it.

2) If #1 isn't true, check against common Japanese game themes, genres and what not. If I think it fits well enough, include it.

3) Is it low effort or from a horrible publisher/dev? Don't include it, they don't deserve it. I have a small mental shitlist of devs/publishers, such as SakuraGame.

4) Is it an RPGMaker game or a Free to Play game? Don't include it.

5) Is it indie? I give it a little more leeway if it is so that they get some recognition.

6) I don't bother with non-English releases anymore. It's to bothersome.

 

No matter what I choose to do, it's a no-win situation for me should there be any criticism. So long as people aren't rude about it, I don't really care either way and will add in whatever is requested. It's really easy to miss stuff too since I have no easy way of getting info on a game. Everything has to be manually checked one at a time. This includes genres too as it's often generic ones listed aren't really descriptive.

Some weekly VN news:

 

Kuroinu Ch.3 was released by Mangagamer. Not my type of game.

 

Their next release is Evenicle, an RPG/VN game by Alicesoft. It looks pretty fun, and is set to release on June 28th, 2018. I will be getting it for sure.

Yeah, yeah, but then again, what wouldn't be the point of the complete DLC character bundle then? (Even though the JP/Asia LE's do include a product code for that. Or Digital Deluxe editions. Or a Asia only Physical Deluxe edition on PS4. But I get what you mean.)

Thank you for your posts in this topic.  I appreciate them, especially since genres as filters are so blurred these days.  Your best judgement seems to work very well from my perspective, if it matters from a lurker.
