A Hat in Time coming to the Nintendo Switch; Release date unknown

Split Screen Co-op DLC releasing September 13th on PC for free.

Seal the Deal DLC Expansion will be free to everybody the first day of its launch on September 13th on PC.

No word on the DLC coming to consoles. I assume they will eventually, but no mention of it was made yet.

 

 

 

 

 

Interesting to see a Grandia HD Remaster coming to PC. I'll pick it up at some point.

Have the first one accessible on Vita, nice to know I can take the second one on the go too.

Grandia was a pretty decent game, with just an OK story. Good fighting system made up for it though. I'll get it eventually like I do other HD remasters, which is usually discounted a good amount.

Physical or else no buy.

 

know your audience, publishers.

It had a very vanilla story and a good (at the time) gameplay. I don't know if it really holds up nowadays. Still buying it for nostalgia reasons, but still.

After years of selling old games digitally as PS Classics and Virtual Console, I'm pretty sure if publishers are still doing it digitally, it's because they've gotten a pretty decent bead on their audience.

My Bullet Girls Phantasia got delivered today, except they sent me the Vita version. I double checked and I did order the PS4 version. Joy.

Same thing happened to me. Not happy. Just sent a message to customer service.

Publishers sell on digital because of the higher profit margins and the lack of additional costs associated with physical publishing and distribution.  You sound like what one of them would say.  A person doesn't even have to leave their chair to click 'buy' on digital and yet 50% of sales are still physical games.  I do appreciate the snarky retort though.

Definitely. I know far more people nowadays who buy digital over physical. Plus, when publishers make 3x their profit on digital it's easy for them to overlook the sales "loss" (and higher manufacturing costs) of those who just want physical editions.

 

I always prefer physical, but if I want a game and it's only digital, then there's only two choices. Buy it in that format, or lose out.

my internet download speed isn't that great, which is why I haven't gone all Digital. The Digital Future is coming for sure, but at least not for a while

I'm going to buy Grandia whether it's digital, physical, telepathically transmitted to my brain, etc...

 

I'd rather have it digital only than not at all.

Sorry for the messed up Bullet Girls Phantasia physical orders. Now time to get physical with my PS4 copy.

Pretty stoked for Grandia HD on pc. Never did finish 2.

 

That hat in time dlc for free is pretty generous.

If you're gonna snark, don't be surprised if somebody snarks back, that's all I'm saying.

The Persona Dancing: Endless Night Collection is up on Best Buy for those with GCU still.

I was worried it would go up right after my GCU ended.

 

The two individual games went up too.

Soul Calibur 6 is already announcing DLC characters before the full cast is out. Now I need to debate if I'm getting the season pass since I play Talim and Tira.

Also, sad news: Amazon is ending their 20% preorder discount on video games entirely.

I mean, $10 credit isn't so bad. If it applies to cheaper games, it could be quite nice.

It won't.  Like everything Amazon, they will just copy Best Buy game for game.

Yep. I would also love to see some characters from Yu Yu Hakusho and Rurouni Kenshin too.

Yeah, well it's better than nothing, that's for sure, but it also expires within 60 days after being added to your account. So their pretty much telling you to spend it now on shit if you want it or not, as it's expiring soon. I rarely if ever buy anything new, so I'll just have to wait on the standard discounts to happen over time.

 

I used to grab an occasional game here and there because of the Prime discount, now with out it, there's no reason to pay full price, so I'll never get the $10 credit. It's a lose/lose for me, but for those buying a game anyway, of course the $10 is cool(I guess). I only started Prime last year, as I use it mostly for business, and my son uses the video stuff. So I was never in this for the discount on games anyways, so loosing it now isn't a huge deal. But with the 2 day shipping that can be 3-6 days, and the rather poor discounts in general now, I'll for sure be rethinking Prime next year.
