I haven played it, but that Langrisser got some really bad reviews.

I could only make myself play the first fight, but it's like a very bad version of fire emblem.  Though back when i purchased mine, new copies came with a nice artbooklet.

I got mine like 2-3 days ago, so not that big of a difference, I suppose.

My order for RXN -RAIJIN- [LIMITED EDITION] recently shipped 3 days ago and the tracking shows "The item is pre-advised" with the latest update as of today. Shipping method is PostNL ePac.

 

Looking at my orders, I haven't purchased much from them. Last order was from 4 years ago and was a digital code, which I recall had some issues. Last physical item I ordered was from 10 years ago, soundtrack for Shadow of the Colossus.

I order a lot of their exclusives and my experience has been once they send a shipping email, it takes about 2 to 4 weeks to get to me.

While we're on the subject, if a package has entered the US 5 weeks ago and hasn't moved since, is it safe to say the package is lost?

yeah well i got the regular edition, curious why the shipment got delayed because they had to wait for stickers, but mine was delayed about 2 weeks

While we're on the subject, if a package has entered the US 5 weeks ago and hasn't moved since, is it safe to say the package is lost?

depends where it says, may be stuck in customs, depending on how it was packaged or shipped, my experience that if its not ups, fedex, or dhl either the tracking isnt compatible or they forgot to scan, some tracking used isnt compatible with some usps scanners, i've had them never show up, only show when its delivered. also its already the holiday season for shipping so depending on where ur at could take a little longer. i would suggest if its important to just pay up next time for the air shipping or what not to have a better chance to get it

Got mine last week. You should be good. Stuff from overseas sometimes gets held up for awhile in customs.

And then you both strike out because it turns out they're more into each other than either of you.

Wat. That was unexpected. I do hope they go back to the time limits, even if they're not that demanding. Just not as bad as Atelier Firis where the pacing was absolutely horrendous.

I'm sure some people will be excited for this, but I'm a bit disappointed since it's not a game I'm interested in.

What's interesting about the new Atelier game is that it's the 4th game in the Arland Trilogy so a return to form is probably expected.

This honestly may be the last time I order from Heavy-Arm as I have never once received a package from them that didn't take at least a month to get to me. Though it's never really their fault, I only have problems ordering from them.

Not seeing much else. Sale of the Dead has a few thread related titles. Still going to recommend A Hat in Time since it's on sale if you haven't played it yet.

Same. The time mechanic made the games more fun.

Thanks! Picked up Raiden and TTG. Wanted to grab Langrisser as well, but don't know if I would ever play it.

The Langrisser 3DS game is probably the worst thing on the platform, just horrible and a stain on the series legacy.

If you're curious about the series, I reccomend you wait for the Switch remakes.

It's kind of sad, but I have wanted a Mana Khemia sequel forever. I doubt that will ever happen. The games are just alright and good fun in a school setting.

 

Also Our World is Ended (doesn't sound like good English) look OK at best, but I support most VNs. Course one of my fave Youtubers Otaku Overdrive has a review of it. I recommend watching it before purchasing.

To the guy asking about Warriors Orochi 4.

 

I've loved all of them but this new magic system is dumb. They start you off Tadakatsu Honda who is ridiculously OP in my opinion. For some reason I've kept playing the game and I think I've died twice playing on Hard Mode and the occasional Pandemonium when Hundun appears.

 

I know they're all a big button mashing grind fest, which I happen to like, but the after math where you build up your characters feels boring.

 

If anyone wants it for $40 shipped with decent trade feedback, drop me a PM.



#26400 Thermopyle  

Posted 24 October 2018 - 03:21 PM

That does not sound complete.

 

Ugh. I'm hoping that D1 getting a remake will prompt them to give Disgaea D2 a PS4 port with all the DLC included. And the same trophy list to cover the PS3 version having $50+ worth of stupid extra characters with trophies attached.
