I wish they would give it a fucking rest already, they will complain about everything and anything.

It's why they lose elections.

From what I understand its due to them changing erika to eric because time travel nonsense which devalues ericas entire situation.

 

Atlus should really just leave such things alone as they have proven they cannot handle it or stick to their guns as shown with kanji from p4 being gay if you want him to be.

In case anyone didn't notice the dedicated thread, NewEgg has a 50% off code for a few different games and accessories (mostly headsets, though there's a keyboard and fightstick, too). Most games are available for multiple platforms. Seems like the deal will be expiring in a few hours.

Thread-relevant games include:
Warriors Orochi 4 - $25
Dragon Ball FighterZ - $15
Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker - $20
Soulcalibur VI - $25
FFXV: Royal Edition - $15
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle - $20
FFXV: Normal Edition - $15

These prices are after the discount, and most of them have a minimum $3 shipping fee unless you have NewEgg Premier. NewEgg also collects sales tax in most states.

Discount code is EMCTVUY27. I've posted the link to the eligible products below in a code box, since hyperlinks to NewEgg break in CAG for some reason; just copy and paste.

Incidentally, can anyone recommend for or against Cross Tag Battle or Warriors Orochi 4?

There's been some drama about CrossTag Battle's DLC. I don't know the full details, but I believe that one of the DLC packs with some kind of story component became vaporware and is speculated to be re-released on a Definitive/Complete edition down the road. So I'd vote against that one, but I can't speak for Warriors Orochi.

So funny you mention that.  I've been waffling on getting CrossTag Battle the last two days from this sale, just like I have during the last four newegg video game sales, but I have the same reservations that you have.

 

But I want to play it so badly!

Back in January Newegg sent targeted discounts to residents of NY. SWXNY19 for 10% off an order and PREMNY for 3 free months of Newegg premier. Don't know if any other states got the offer but worth checking your email. The coupons expire on 2/18. Subject of email was Notification of Sales Tax Collection.

When they first posted about it the website was formatted slightly differently and had boxes underneath with all the retailers including Best Buy. It has since updated to having the drop down bars that add new retailers quite a bit after they’re actually available. If amazon is any guide as to availability I think Best Buy should be up for a while once it becomes available.

I wouldn't bet on it, but P5 did get dual audio on release so you never know. Everything about this game's western release is going to be a complete mystery until right before launch day.

Dual audio is confirmed. 11-voice DLC is not described either way.

I actually got the $5 off $60 coupons with my two most recent Play-Asia orders. Maybe they are bringing them back.

Same here.  Seems like they are back.

Had no idea about this. Cool there's dual audio, but the other details I'm talking about is how much they'll omit now that all the blue checkmarks are up in arms over their acronyms.

I know everyone wants the eroge and VN news so here we go!

 

Mangagamer released their all ages otome Steam Prison. Looks to be very high quality, and I will pick it up somewhere down the road. Has a 10% discount till the 21st.

 

Steam

 

Their next release is Lilycle Rainbow Stage!!!. It's an all ages Yuri game and seems to have nice visuals. I may get this, but I usually wait for bigger discounts on Yuri games. It release March 14th, 2019 with a discount for pre-ordering on Mangagamer.

 

Mangagamer (NSFW)

 

Nekonyan released the fandisc for Fureraba Friends to Lovers. It is extremely short and 18+. Each route is about 15 minutes long or so with 1 eroge scene. Honestly I'm not sure it's worth the money, but I got it for free for buying from their website.

 

NekoNyan Store (NSFW)

 

JAST Usa surprise released Lilium x Triangle which looks to be about a love triangle Yuri style. It looks short and such, but could be decent. There is a launch discount currently.

 

VNDB (NSFW)

JAST Usa store (NSFW)

 

9-Nine episode 2 was announced by Sekai Project/Denpasoft. The first episode came out recently. Cool as these look high quality.

I wish I had the time, the energy, and the money to play some of those name-brand perverted beat-off games.   But I'm just glad that they exist.  :lol:

Most Japanese games, anime and media as a whole don't buy into our current societal gender politics because it's not a priority over there. They cater to their immediate consumers instead of grandstanding for causes that gets them nowhere financially. People who play these kinds of games and expect Japanese ideals to conform to their own need to see the world for what it is instead of what it thinks it owes them.

You are missing the part where erica was unhappy during highschool and left for a while and then came back later.

 

But yeah the entire thing is a landmine.  But atlus is just being dumb here.

Agreed.

 

Fire emblem wise I haven't followed any of the news updates about it besides the release date announcement.  Have they confirmed anything gameplay/story wise like if it's going to have more than one protagonist such as sacred stones, blazing blade and echoes did?  Just curious about that in particular.  I did read that the main central character is the teacher and is level and such wise on par with his students but not much else.  Well kids supposedly wont be in it and I don't think there's much of a loss there outside giving gender or class exclusive skills to male children like galeforce in awakening and such.

Yeah "dead deal" I would say. Doesn't work for me. The link does say free, pops open steam, but nothing then.
