Not niche, but Japanese game related question. Did they ever fix the performance issues on the Xbox One versions of the Dark Souls games? I have both consoles (PS4 and XB1) but I'm wondering if the experience is better now on Xbox One X or PS4 pro.

Makes sense.  Based on experience getting the CSI and II plats, I fully expect to be doing two playthroughs regardless.  I typically like to do my first playthrough blind on Hard and then ng+ on nightmare with a guide to mop up trophies.  There was also content exclusive to ng+ in Zero, Ao, CSII so there likely will be in III as well.

 

The demo didn't carry over any CSII data, so I will probably be starting a new game at release anyway.

I would assume that will be limited to the actual game then as I believe they specifically mentioned save data carrying over at some point.  Hmm nevermind that was stuff carrying over from 1 and 2 into 4 apparently.

Don't see it mentioned in any of the recent pages, but

 

Fate/EXTELLA Link - Fleeting Glory Limited Edition - PlayStation 4 $49.99

 

Noted as a limited time deal on the search page, and on camelcamelcamel it dropped to this price on 9/14, and is the lowest from Amazon directly.

 

Hope somebody can make use of it.

I noticed this as well, but I'm hoping it drops further. The last Fate/Extella LE got down to $20 before it started drying up.

Yeah, and even then it dried up pretty slowly.

To be fair, with that release they were sorta fighting themselves on the Sony side with the Vita copies too which was identical.

 

But indeed hope it will stay in stock as it goes lower, since I sure wouldn't mind swooping one up for cheaper. ;)

So am I still the only person that actually like Mind=0, or have other people finally warmed up to it?

I've been wanting to check it out.  Have everything else in that bundle on other platforms though (if anyone is looking for other titles and wants to split let me know.)

I have been (veerrrrryyyyyy) slowly working my way through it for a few years now and I like it for the most part. I dunno how the reception to it was at launch but I know based on most of the reviews I skimmed around the time I bought the game it looked like a case of people comparing it to Persona instead of judging it based on its own merits (one of the top metacritic reviews literally says to go buy P4G instead.)

 

Always hate when that kind of thing happens.

I was really in to Persona at the time and enjoyed playing it. Never finished the final dungeon because I sat down to play on my Playstation TV and the game wanted me to rub something.

Mind=0 isn't bad, but then I love me some dungeon crawlers (Etrian Odysseys, Moe Chronicle, Criminal Girls 1 more than 2, ...).  How's Omega/Labyrinth Life?

I feel like I'm buying this for Mind=0, and maybe xblaze/aegis. How's Creeping Terror (is it garbage?)?

It's a port of a ds game. Supposedly not much work went into the port. Haven't tried it myself yet. If you want 4/5 games in the bundle just get it to add another title to the library.

I don't see why not. Now that there's Switch and people who love paying more to buy old, degraded games, we all know they're just waiting for Marvelous to milk them out. After the last Switch version, I'd bet Marvelous sold fewer of the sequel on PS4.

It wasn't just that but there are numerous games like it on the vita that are for the most part considered better so it made it get an even lower score.  I still have to get around to it myself as I bought it and a number of other titles during past psn sales when they were this price or lower.

That’s... hmm. It’s definitely competing with the Arkham City GOTY case as one of the worst designs I’ve ever seen. It’s definitely weirder and more jarring, but at the same time it’s honestly a more artistic and visually pleasing design.

It’s a really tough call.

Or the Nintendo Selects 3DS re-release. Ugh!

I mean, it's Konami.

 

This is the same company that loves to put prices onto the cover art of their best sellers.

Fanatical is having a MoeNovel bundle. You can take an additional 15% with coupon code 15OFFMOE(it should be auto applied if you click through the link).

 

Tier 1 - $5.89($5.01 after coupon)

If My Heart Had Wings

Love Kami Divinity Stage

Love Kami Useless Goddess

Love Kami Healing Harem

A Sky Full of Stars

Cross Channel

Adventure of a Lifetime

 

Tier 2 - $13.49($11.47 after coupon)*includes Tier 1 items

If My Heart Had Wings Flight Diary

If My Heart Had Wings Flight Diary - New Wings: Akari DLC

 

Flight Diary is a fan disc that was released earlier this year. Worth it if you're a fan of the original but if you're not sure, just go for the Tier 1 as that seems like a better value.

 

Btw, I've been playing Ai: The Somnium Files, from Uchikoshi(aka the 9 hours 9 persons 9 doors, Virtues Last Reward, Zero Time Dilemma creator) and it is incredibly good. It seems to have the highest polish and budget of any of his games.

You are the first person to say anything positive about that game from 999s creator that I have read.  People have been pretty mixed at best about it since it's too similar to the other games and he has another one coming out I saw.
