Was debating that $13.64 Tracer Nendoroid but the almost $6 shipping kills it for me. Tracer is not my main in OW, but for $14 would of bought it for another thing to put on my desk at work. If it was the D.VA one though, then I would of bought it probably since D.VA is my main.

Incredibly likely that P5S is for the Switch. 

 

Anyway, just wait for the 2019 Persona Live

For the past couple of days I've been practicing with 2B in Soul Calibur VI's training mode, and today I finally did some online matches. They did such an awesome job with her. Before looking at her move list I tried all the standard button inputs that 3D fighters use. One after another I kept seeing her do moves from Nier: Automata. It was so cool. I tried the game a bit after buying it on Black Friday, and I wasn't sure how much I would end up playing it. But now I see I'm going to have a lot of fun playing as 2B.

 

And I bought Gal Gun 2 a few days ago. A guy who worked on the localization was recently showing the game off on one of my favorite streams, so I got kind of interested in it.

So SEGA just recently posted this on Steam under the news tab for Bayonetta today:

 

https://steamcommuni...962968917170170

 

People are speculating that it means Catherine will be making it to PC.  Which I hope is the case cause I want to see more Atlus games on PC.

All of Atlus' work on PC would be an amazing thing. And would absolutely KILL my productivity in other areas.

If all Atlus games were to be put on steam, all the niche gamers upset at Sony for the ridiculous amounts of censorship can finally jump ship.

They're starting to get mad at Steam too. They just haven't touched an anime boob game that more than 5 people care about yet.

I'm gonna post this here too:

 

 

 

It's been sold out for a while everywhere I'm aware of. Even the US LE is sold out at this point.

 

Regarding the ToV Definitive Anniversary; It appears to be in stock at the BN store:    https://www.bandaina...nintendo-switch

 

I was able to add all three console versions to cart; I didn't check out, because I can't justify the price on this pitiful excuse for a special.  I was willing to pay for the CEs for ToS, ToX, ToX2, and ToB, and this game is arguably better then any of those.  But I just couldn't pull the trigger on this one.

Yeah, they created more stock:

I think this is only for NA, though, the EU version still looks OOS (though I'm sure I don't have a comprehensive list of retailers).

of course the eu one would be given that no one wants the na one.

If only ToV LE came with a statue or something. It's so pricy for just a steel book, an art book, and some keychains. I got that email too, but I just couldn't pull the trigger at 100, which is literally the price of two copies of the game without discounts. Also, I like repede and all, but even the old xbox 360 steel book looked better...

I had the NA ToV preordered, but canceled it awhile ago.  I got lucky on an EU one from Amazon.de a month ago.  It was sold out the second I checked the page again after I ordered too.

 

Also Happy (belated) Holidays and New Year everyone!

For anyone in north east ohio not only did the website lied about nothing but the one game being in stock but every game was in stock at my nearby target and they had ample stock of at least 4-6 of each.  I went there for smt and ended up picking up most of the games listed that I wanted.  ocarina of time, mario, and luigis mansion.

They even had a couple things like the special edition of fire emblem warriors.

Happy hunting.

Yes I'm hyped for it as I almost imported the ps3 disc back in the day.  Decided to get the physical switch version at launch. Will probably pick up the pc version as well down the road when it gets cheap like ToB/ToZ.

Catherine Classic just released on Steam:

 

https://store.steamp...herine_Classic/

 

EDIT: I should also note that the PC release has Japanese audio, which apparently wasn't released in the west before.  For those that may prefer that.

 

EDIT:  This article from PCGamer suggests there might be more Atlus/SEGA games coming to PC in the future:

 

https://www.pcgamer....s-could-follow/

 

“We wanted to give the PC audience the opportunity to experience Catherine for the first time as it was originally released,” Sega tells us. “And Catherine Classic is the perfect way to accomplish that goal.”

 

But what about Catherine Full Body, or other Sega console games? We already know Sega is keen to put more of these games on PC, and some more announcements could be on the horizon.

 

“We hope to have more exciting news to share from Sega/Atlus in regards to publishing on PC in the future,” says Sega.

I am torn over getting ToV: Definitive. I loved the game when I played it on 360 but $50 ($40 after GCU) seems a little steep for the new stuff they're offering. The mismatched English voice acting can be jarring as well from what I've read.

Personally, I want to support Bandai-Namco finally giving us the expanded version of ToV after all these years, plus I can play it on a non-Microsoft console. I'm going to play it with Japanese voices (another addition I'm thankful to Bamco for), so the scenes where Troy Baker was replaced won't affect me.

I'm sure the Tales game will be around $20 like they all reach eventually. I have wanted to play it for years after hearing old friends say it was great many years ago and them buying the Alter figures of some of the ladies. Mine should be here tomorrow I believe.

I'm so bummed about the mismatched voice acting. It's not going to ruin the game or anything, but it does really, really hold back this new version. I went through and 100% completed the original 360 version, and I don't feel like it has been long enough to justify another play yet. I will play this new version at some point, though, without a doubt.

 

This was the last Tales game of this style, and I think they basically perfected it with this one. As much as I have enjoyed the releases since this one, a lot of the changes made for the new formula simply did not make the series better. Due to how Xillia sold, though, it makes sense why that style is here to stay. I just wish we could get a hybrid of the two that addresses the problems with the latter by integrating what they were already doing better  with the former.

I'm very excited for the Vesperia release :D I am disappointed in the "Premium" edition the US got, but I'm still looking forward to the new content and outfits. Hopefully all of the DLC outfits are available from the beginning. I already have a Saturday Tales-a-thon planned with a couple friends :)

I wish I had friends to co-op this. My friends will likely be a beer and some random plush I have there.
