Apocalypse has supposedly worse dungeons though I have heard.

 

And yeah I don't know why I kept going really.  I suppose mostly it was just something to play while I walk to work and whatever.

about time.

 

Amazon wise whats with the random coupon on items before you click on their listings?

I think they do that to match Walmart's "in store pickup discount" on certain items.  At least in the past that's what they did.

This is pretty crazy because he's also the Japanese voice of Olaf on Frozen/Frozen 2 and Kingdom Hearts 3. What are SE and Disney going to do?

This.

You play while walking? Seems risky.

It's not so long as I pay attention before crossing the street but there's very few crossings on the way so it's mostly just a long empty stretch of sidewalk.  I live out in the boonies not a big city or anything.

It shows a coupon but it's not there when you go to the items main page though and there isn't a discount present.

Thanks for the info. Not surprising though, even suspicion of drug use tends to be a career ender over there.

nah not worth the effort.  If they let you ng+ right before the law and chaos routes were set then maybe I would have considered it.

Sega Fes is at the end of the month. There is also the Persona Concert next month where they will likely announce something else. As previously mentioned by ATLUS, 2019 will be the year that will determine the future course of Persona

The Persona anime is airing on the 23rd so something will likely be announced by week's end.

The store technically updates at 11am EST, but I usually don't see anything new for at least 1-2 hours after that, so check back later.

For those that missed out on the P3D/P5D Vita deluxe edition w/4CD sale at Play-Asia last month, Amazon Japan has the set for 4196 yen (shipped by Amazon Japan).

Bought it on 3/15 for 3519 yen and it arrived today - very nice set. Comes with DLC in the package and additional DLC from Amazon Japan via email.

I spent more money at Amazon Japan this year than I have at Amazon US. Lol

SMT4 is imbalanced tedious trash. It's a damn busted mess of a game that we only tolerate because we expect JRPGs to be bad and grindy. It's borderline insulting to the players and a waste of some of the coolest concept art in vidya history.

 

Yes, I beat it twice and I hated every minute of it starting at about the boss fight with Minotaur. Yes I am very stupid.

 

Apocalypse is better in every conceivable way. Better smarter combat, better interface, way better bosses. The ONLY issue is that the last dungeon is about as long as every single dungeon before that in the game COMBINED and most of that length is giant football field empty rooms and a teleporter puzzle put together by that guy in Atlus's basement who hates every single one of us. And, OF COURSE the music is some ambient noise that loops in 15 seconds

 

Which is a shame because right at the end of that is a whiz-bang final boss throwdown to end all SMT final boss throwdowns. it's so good it almost makes up for the last 3 hours of awfulness.

That minotaur boss design was pretty dope.

Thanks a bunch. Been waiting on the deep discount on this. Plus it's the only way to get physical copies of the Vita version.

I'm not one of those OMGSTEELBOOK people, but that is seriously one gorgeous case. Might pre-order just until I know for sure if it's not localized by California.

Even if SJWs tone things down, it's still the only version around. It's probably not coming to steam anytime soon since they said it was a Sony exclusive. I don't know if I'm willing to wait until 2021 for a steam update.

 

Hopefully Sega is big enough of a third party to not get bullied into censorship.

Crypt of the NecroDancer x Legend of Zelda cross-over is coming to the Switch called Cadence of Hyrule:

 

 

Well, that's a buy from me. I wonder who will be doing the remixed Legend of Zelda tracks. Possibly Danny B since he retweeted it and was the composer for Crypt of the NecroDancer? His NecroDancer tracks were pretty good.

Be sure to notice the region for some of those releases. I try to get NA region copies usually and passed on Disgaea 1 at least cause of that.
