I got bored of Lapis X Labyrinth in maybe 2 or 3 hours. It's just a go around, doing some skills, hack and slash where you get gems and items, and the end of levels you may fight bosses and there is some key stuff at the end for opening treasure chests. It's OK. I'm sure there is more to it, but it just felt samey and shallow.

Felt the same about Dragon Marked for Death.  Think I will wait for a lower price.

 

Thanks for the response!

Sea Salt is half off and I think it may be the first time it's been on sale, at least it was on my radar and I never noticed it until today.

honestly, going through eShop sales these days has become an exhausting chore. 99% is shovelware garbage, repeated sales, and prices that arent even that great when compared to other platforms (the switch tax is complete bs pro-corporate propaganda). I bought VVVVV for $1 in like 2012 lmao

That's why I've started putting games I'm interested in into my wish list, then I just look through that for sale prices. The deals section is too flooded with junk to look through for me.

I'm just really upset that games from Capcom, Bandai Namco, NISA, and a trove of indie gems/garbage have gone on sale multiple times while Square Enix hasn't done a single sale in months. I'm really tired of coming on here and seeing the same freaking games on sale in the eShop over and over with no Squeenix sale (and the worst part is that they've put their games on sale on other platforms multiple times during all this). Please, I just want to get FFVII and maybe FFXV Pocket and Star Ocean. Let me give you [less] money XD

I played on PC. The visuals are kinda mediocre, and the story is about as boring as you'd expect in a crossover fighter. The system is pretty simplistic—no Street Fighter-style inputs, it's more Smash-like, just press a direction and a button to pull off a different move. Specials are very limited, and the AI is stupid as hell—you can get through the entire story mode on normal difficulty just button mashing. There's not a lot to do in single player, and not much in the way of visual customization available.

It sounds like I'm pretty down on it, but don't get me wrong, it's not too bad—I've had some fun with it. Obviously if there are games you really like represented, and/or you've got friends to play with, it's gonna be more appealing, and it's super accessible since the controls are so easy. And just because the AI is dumb as a brick doesn't mean there's no depth to the gameplay.

I saw that Isaac was in the game and was curious about how he played. So I’ll probably grab it and get some enjoyment out of it.

I'm curious about the game too, but it doesn't look like it has a lot of depth, so I'll likely grab it on Steam for $4.99 instead of paying double for a shallow fighter. With the savings, I picked up Fighter's History, a blatant Street Fighter II clone, for $2.

There's a reason why it's free: it's a shitty meme game. They're actually charging $12 on Steam for it, $6 currently during the sale...

 

Claim it to your account by all means, but don't download it. Gameplay revolves around a character jumping out of a cube with elephant legs, and you have to guide it into each ring as it falls through screens. Looks like there are upgrades, but it's not my kind of game whatsoever. I played it for about 3 minutes before uninstalling.

Has anyone sent in their JC recently for the free drift repair/replacement, and if so, when and how long from start to finish did it take? My son has been having issues with both pairs for awhile now and before I could send them in, covid-19 happened. It wasn't a huge deal before, as he got by with what he had, but now both pairs are pretty bad, so I just opened a ticket for the first pair and was wonder what I should expect in regards to the turnaround time?

If you like Ninjala, buy it. If you don't like Ninjala, don't buy it. It comes with items that you can only get by beating the story mode. Much like the items you unlock beating Splatoon's story mode. Unlike Splatoon's story mode, it's really only four or five short missions that teach you how to play the game.

Last I heard, they stopped offering repairs due to Covid 19. They're also still being sued over JoyCon drift, so people that signed up for the class action lawsuits last year may make some money, if Nintendo loses.

Has anyone here played Damascus Gear Operation Osaka? It's an isometric mech battle arena/dungeon crawler from Arc System Works. Seems to have pretty mixed to decent reviews. MSRP is $19.99, but it's on sale for $2.40 until July 8th.

https://www.nintendo...ld's currency).

 

 

It's $2.39 on PlayStation Network as well.  They're having a big sale on Arc System Works games there too.

I just stumbled across this deal -- not sure how I missed it.  For $2.40, it seems reasonably interesting...

Thanks, bud.  Unless they're Atlus RPGs, it's rare that decent games go on sale on the 3DS these days.  And Gurumin is definitely an enjoyable one if you like that style of game.  Bought.

I sent mine in last Thursday, and the status hasn't changed yet on the site. If you're wanting to get them done you should start the repair order now. You get put on a waiting list because they have a backlog of repairs.

Yeah, I got on the waiting list already, I was just wondering after getting on the list, how long did it take for them to get back to you, and then what? They pay shipping both ways correct, so do they send a printable label, and did that come after your first request, or was there some back and forth? 

 

If you have shipped yours in, and haven't gotten them back, of course you can't speak to the return time, but you can say how long after opening a request, did it take to actually send them back? If it took a month, or more, I can see about ordering the analog sticks and changing them out myself, as it's an easy fix. I'm just trying to see how the long the wait might be, so I can look at other alternatives, but if it didn't take longer than 1-2 weeks to send them in, I can't see it taking longer than 1-2 weeks to get them back, as I'm sure they are trying to keep the turn around as quick as possible.

I’ll third this sentiment! Have always been curious about Gurumin after reading a HG101 writeup years ago. Sat down to check it out with my daughter this morning, and wow: I had no idea I had this much nostalgia for this particular era of gaming, but MAN does this game take me back to the late 90s/early 2000s. “Zelda-lite” is probably the best overall descriptor, but the level design and manic Japanese energy that pervades this game feels like Ape Escape to me, with some Mega Man Legends vibes mixed in there too.

It’s from Falcom, the “Ys” people, so it has a solid action-JRPG pedigree behind it. Camera control is of the vintage, unfortunately (it WAS originally released in 2006), but we didn’t encounter anything so difficult that the camera was a real problem. If any of this nonsense strikes your fancy, $3.59 is a great price.
