Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online is back in stock at Best Buy for $19.99 / $15.99 GCU. Thought I'd missed it since it was on clearance before it went OOS.

Lucky. I've refreshed that page so many times since the clearance started...

Ummm has anyone else noticed that on Amazon maybe for some newly created pre-order games such as Punch Line (was going to pre-order this), Girl Metal, newest Atelier game, Death end Re:Quest, Zanki Zero, Liar Princess, Princess Guide, Penguin Wars, P5 and P3 dancing games, maybe others.....but I don't see any 20% off pre-order price for any of those. 

 

It may be speculation of course, but it maybe the beginning of the end for the pre-order discount. These games don't fall under the remaster rule or whatever for that, so it may be sneaking off of newer listings and well that's it for it. 

Yeah, I've noticed this as well.  Basically every new title that I have been interested in hasn't had the 20% preorder offer applied yet.  Dead Cells, which comes out in 9 days doesn't have it and has been orderable for months.  I've got that preordered from BB so it doesn't bother me too much.  Moonlighter though is not available at BB yet, and still doesn't have the 20% off yet from Amazon.  Many other titles as well.

 

It seems like they are phasing it out - and trying to do it quietly.

Yeah, I see that the VC4 special edition I ordered right away is still showing $99 on Amazon. I was hoping it would sneak in with the 20% off, but I guess it won't.

My Fallout 76 has the discount though :roll:

Bestbuy has VC4 SE, so if you have GCU, you can get 20% off there.

 

Since Amazon doesn't have any discounts or bonuses though, might as well grab it from Gamestop which includes a hat (also less shipping damage risk).

It's kind of sad I may get Mario/Zelda though I don't plan to get a Switch until SMT or a really good bundle is out....or a redesign haha. Reminds me of when I had a Neptunia LE and some other RPG before I ever owned a PS3.

Does anyone know if the PS4 version of SNK Heroines is exclusive to the CE? I see the Switch standard edition up for pre-order, but I can't find the PS4 one anywhere, and the game releases in less than a month.

Yes, the physical PS4 version is exclusive to NISA's CE. The digital version should be available on PSN.

Atelier Lydie and Suelle PS4 hit the magic $19.99 price point at Gamestop and probably Amazon price match. After this Physical will start creeping back up.

 

If $80 for a season pass is too much, you only need to spend $20 on Ilmeria and Lucia then another $10 on Claudel Prarie after reaching the final chapter. The rest is music and maps from Blue Reflection or Nights of Azure and costumes for female characters.

Does anyone know what's up with Amazon and the Switch version of Little Dragon's Cafe?

 

It was originally set to come out next Friday like the PS4 version, but now my preorder is sitting as unavailable.

Got my Bullet Girls Phantasia LE. The outter box is really nice. Really dig the alternate game cover.

I wish the artbook was larger and hardcover.

The playing cards are trash. Flimsy thin cardboard and the print is poor. pic Really disappointed in that considering the entire game shipment was delayed for it.

There is some LE dlc but the costumes are pretty ugly. The dlc that came with the base game look better.

Haven't actually checked the game or music cd yet.

Sweet on Uppers. I will have to support that easily just for the effort it seems to have taken to bring it here.

Oh ok, that's awesome.  That's great news. I hope I can just trade in my current system for it.  

The pages are up on Best Buy and Amazon but as of this moment it's still not available for pre-order but at least everyone who wants it can keep an eye out for when they do become available to buy.

Is Uppers being released in the US? The press release linked in the article is from Marvelous Europe and I don’t see a similar announcement from XSEED. I also don’t see where the West is mentioned in the release.

I would gladly double-dip. Had a blast playing though the JP version, although I had some difficulties trying to figure out the girls requests.

Yeah, happy that Uppers is finally getting an English release. Also...I'm happy, that as a Phantom Breaker fan, and from LRG lately I see..

 

That the LRG release of PB: BattleGrounds are selling well, however, here's what's left remaining as of current (subject to change).

 

PS4 SE: 11%, PS4 LE: 4% / Vita SE: Sold Out, Vita LE: Only 4 LE's left.

 

However, as much as I am a PB nut, and I could probably afford one of them, I already have PB:BG on pretty much every system they ported on (so I really can't justify buying again, even for physical), lol. (Except on Switch, since I don't have one.)
