Bit skeptical about the Kill La Kill game since it is not ArcSys working on it but APlus, the studio responsible for the recent LWA game. LWA Chambers of Time got lukewarm reviews and I hope this game turns out well for the most part

Anyone else sign up for the SMT Liberation beta? Got an email that kind of looks like spam and not at the same time.

I clicked the link but looks like it might not be active yet?

 

The Facebook page said it would be starting at the end of June. I forget what day.

Mangagamer put up 2 VNs about two weeks ago. Put it off reporting on them but they look kind of somewhat low quality to me.

 

The Wilting Amaranth is a yuri VN about 3 women whose fates are overlapped in a witch's tower.
 
 
Nakadashi Banzai 4 is about a guy picking up 3 hot chicks I guess.
 
 
As put before Happymaher is up for pre-order and comes out 07/12/2018 with a pre-order discount to $40.45. This is about lucid dreams that occur to the main character after an accident occurs. Easily going to pick this up.

Trails (or legend of heroes) selling well means nothing if they never get released over here. And Tokyo Xanadu was poorly received here in the west so I'm surprised to see this.

 

And I wish they would just kill the 3ds and move all those resources to the Switch

I like the look of it and would have bought Tokyo Xanadu but they followed up the Vita release with an expanded PS4 release that came out in Japan before the Vita version even got an English translation. That's a quick way to kill my interest in a Vita version, and the PS4 version is dropping in price very quickly so there's no reason to jump on that either. If they do continue releasing the games they'll probably do a better job of planning that stuff out.

eX+ was $29.99 for a brief time, but the value's gone back up on Amazon at least: https://www.amazon.c...ing/B01N4PCCN1/

Yep, and it's been $30 a few times on PSN as well already.

I didn't touch the Vita version of Tokyo Xanadu for that reason, similar to Akiba's Trip Vita. I'm almost done with the PS4 version myself. It's not a terrible game by far, just a bit generic, and the story a bit boring in a way. Gameplay is a bit repetitive as well, but generally well done. I am glad they'll think of continuing the series though. It has potential for sure.

The end of the year and the first few months of next year are so insanely packed, no chance I will get everything I want. Forget the money part of it, not enough time in the day lol.
