At the expense of boring everyone, DLC is something I've always compared to items in home video releases. What I watch/play is based on how much I like the movie/game, or how much it adds to the experience. I won't dislike a movie just because it cut out scenes I like for the theatrical release. If it's a movie I care enough about though, I will make sure I get those scenes if they're available.

A) Things like costumes, weapons, and other minor packs are like special features (interviews, audio commentary, behind the scenes featurettes).
B) Stages and new game modes are like cutting room floor content (Director's Cuts, deleted scenes, "lost" episodes).
C) Asura's Wrath (on a side note, there's only one movie I would buy if it came without the ending; A.I.)

Steam Summer Sale starts today in about three hours. There's also a Paypal $5 off $30 on Steam when you pay with paypal. It's limited to the first 40,000 people who save the offer:

 

https://www.paypal.c...d=6SZC7GFHU83A2

 

I don't expect the offer to last too much longer since its been live for for at least nine hours or so, but I thought I'd throw it out there for those interested since the Steam Summer Sale should begin today.

I noticed Gamestop started selling some of the more rare Japanese figures that people usually have to import. Racing Miku Figma, Persona Figmas, 1/8s, etc.

 

Racing Miku 2018 Figma $99.99

 

Persona 5 Joker Figma $85.99

 

Persona 5 Panther Figma $89.99

 

Persona 5 Caroline and Justine Good Smile 1/8 $165.99

 

They might be a bit over priced though, but good if you have some excess credit.

Almost done with red luigi and luigi dream team.  I can say this much about the game.  The giant battles were a horrible idea.

It looks like a standard roguelike to me, obvious gimmick aside. It looks just like Sorcery Saga, and I liked that.

Free Shadowrun Returns Deluxe for Steam. It's not Japanese, however it is an SRPG that is pretty decent. At this point it's almost five years old and has only released on PC, but it's free.

Regardless of its age, this is a fantastic SRPG. It made me forget the abomination that was the 360 game.

Whoa thanks. Claimed the code. Will try it out later. Not sure if it'll work on just adding credit to my wallet or if it has to be a game purchase.

"A bit" is an understatement. Even America based figure shops don't price gouge that much.

Me too, me too. It's one of the last vita games that I'm really excited about.

It works on adding credit, but since the Enhanced Steam 'Custom Amount' option doesn't currently work the only way to add $30 specifically is via editing one of the buttons lower than $30 by inspecting and editing the page.

 

The $5 discount lasts until June 30th I think. Just make sure you sign into Paypal during checkout if it's previously saved.

Like Draekon said, you can add $30 for $25, which is what I did. Did have to do a little (relatively simple) HTML editing though. Can't figure out an easier way to embed it into the URL to make things easier for others.

Oh nice for the adult patch. I need to check my backerkit for the Muvluv kickstarter.

 

First of all summer sales all around. In addition to VNs on Steam from all companies, Mangagamer has theirs going on as well as Denpasoft. Go get some 18+ VNs! I'm just going to buy Maidens of Michael.

 

Mangagamer (NSFW)

Denpasoft (NSFW)

 

A train VN game Maitetsu is currently up for pre-order and set to be released by the end of June exclusively on Fakku by Sekai Project / Denpasoft. This is some game where aerocrafts took over and the previous system RailRoad was abandoned. The main character activates a locomotive and tries to save his hometown from being polluted and running an aerocraft factory. I pre-ordered it cause it has a pretty good following.

I don't remember seeing it announced anywhere. Best Buy only had a Switch version up for preorder so I thought it was exclusive.

Don’t like how it’s worded as “a statement”. Expecting a cancellation or something of sorts but here’s to hoping not.

The situation is pretty weird, when news broke out that Playasia cancelling preorder, PQUBES quietly removed OLZ from their domain. To this day, it hasn't come back yet.

I never preorder from Playasia so I dom't know if they use random date as placeholder, but OLZ English PAL version now has an expected ship date June 30th on Playasia.

If the complexity of fighters turns you off, then Blade Strangers is a good opportunity to try and get into the genre. It has very simplified inputs, and if I recall correctly, they're similar to Smash Bros, where you can hold a direction and press a button to perform a special attack.

In a sense, its similar to Phantom Breaker with the smash-style special moves too, but both PB and Blade Strangers are different games.
