Been keeping an eye on Tokyo Xanadu ex+ LE's since it was mentioned here a week or so ago. Just sharing what I did today since I don't expect it to be lower. Ended up getting one for $27 or so from this listing (6 remaining) after 15% code PLAYTIME15 (live today only, might end early) and 8% ebay bucks back (if the offer is on your account).

Thanks. Can this code be used with best offers?

You apply codes at checkout. It shouldn't matter if it was auction / BIN, just when you actually check out.

Looks like the seller raised the price by $10.  Glad I got in as early as I did, thanks!

It's baffling to me that the Tokyo Xanadu EX+ LE dropped from $150 to $50 and the standard is still at $40. It was on sale at Gamefly and the Aksys store for a few hours each at $20, but I've yet to see copies drop below $40 beyond that.

 

I don't want all the extra crap, I just want the game. :-(

Ah, come one, everyone loves extra crap.   I'm just too cheapass to pay extra for it.

Not japanese but the animation looks really nice.

On PSN some of the dlc for Senran Kagura: Estival Versus is on sale. All the dlc characters individually, the extra missions pack, and the background music pack. This is the first time the Ikki Tousen characters have been on sale. But, their discounted bundle isn't on sale. At their individual price, 50% off they are only $3.00 cheaper than what their bundle regularly goes for. It's more like they're 33% off.

The DLC is the main reason I haven’t gotten that game. I’m too damned OCD about this crap, and it costs too much to complete.

Put in an offer for $34.21 so if he accepts I'll at least get the 8% cashback. He also had the Shiren LE for $30 so I at least got that with the coupon and cashback.

Nice, the seller didn't have that shiren LE listing up when i was looking midday yesterday.  Isn't there a definitive version coming to switch soon?

 

Also there's a rumored sitewide 10-15% code rumored to go live tomorrow so if you do win a best offer, I would wait to check out until tomorrow just in case.

Damn, another one? eBay has been killing it lately with all of this. And I've been dipping my toe back into knocking some retro games and consoles off of my list, so that works great for me! I think it's time for a new PS2 slim tomorrow :3

I feel you. DLC has become very important to me in terms of what I play/buy.

 

Mass Effect 3 DLC on PS3 has been the bane of my existence for a long time.

Man that new Granblue fantasy: relink game looks amazing.  Those frames are something i've never seen on console. Way over 60. Action and graphics look awesome too. Based Platinum games.

They announced a fighting game developed by Arc system works too.

Granblue Fantasy Re Link is the game we all need.

 

 

I'm glad an English version has already been confirmed. Day 1

There is a rumor going around that Persona 5 Arena got delayed because ArcSys is working on Granblue Fantasy Versus. I hope it is real. P5 Arena looking like Guilty Gear sounds glorious. Gotta wait till the Persona Live (maybe)?

Wow! That looked amazing! This is definitely a day 1 buy for me. Hopefully this gets released sometime in 2019.

3D


As if that would be anything but a hard pass. ASW is capable of making good raster graphics, so I refuse to buy anything they make in straight 3D.

I hope you realize I was referring it to being similar to Guilty Gear and DragonBall FighterZ

Yeah I was interested in this, but it's PS4 only at the moment.  Seems like they'd like to port this (and the fighting game) to PC at some point though so maybe I'll eventually get to play it.

Even if it gets to PC, I have doubts the port will be any good.

I don't know why, but I don't really like how this is looking.  I know it probably isn't, but the character animations look choppy and awkward.

This I can get behind.  After the first trailer over the summer, it has been a day one purchase and after this latest gameplay video, I know I won't regret that decision.

Never paid much attention to FighterZ, but assuming you mean Xrd, then that’s what I’m talking about, too.

The figure in the Tokyo Xanadu LE is bigger than I expected.
