Still having a hard time pulling the trigger at $15.78 after GCU/$1 off pickup/tax because of how dirt cheap the first one got on PS3. Plus the fact that I never end up playing massive RPGs as I've never even opened my red steelbook Persona 5 among many other digital ones I've wasted money on over the years.

I picked one up just for the steelbook. I already have the game digitally but want the steelbook because I’m stupid.

Dude... open that P5. I just beat it on Friday night. 145 hours on the first playthrough. Great value

Not many games aren’t?

Has good reviews and they fixed difficulty issues it seems


The complaints about difficulty were always weird to me. I died probably 100 times in my NNK2 playthrough. DQXI which I've never seen any difficulty complaints about I'm about 65 hours in and haven't gotten remotely close to dying once.

It comes with all that stuff but not the Season Pass, which is weird.

 

Still a great deal, though. In for one.

It was crazy easy in the beginning, but by the time I got to the engineer town there were crazy jumps in enemy level... that's when I started reading up stuff online and realizing I was missing massive elements of the game and item upgrading lol

This game worth it for $20?  

96 hours for the game and platinum; ok story, not as good as the first; combat is really fun, preferred it to the first; kind of annoying intermittent voiced sections and text sections; overall, after I beat the game I still really enjoyed the grind for the platinum because the combat is fun; worth it for 20 for sure, I got this enjoyment from launch price

Thank you Derrick

 

Grabbed one (no store has within 250mi). Seems my gcu is still good.

 

May be the collector's edition will receive a great discount soon.

I played and plaitnumed both the original and this one. It isn’t as fun as the original and the story definitely lacks.

Felt the same way. It just isn't as good as the first game. Doesn't help that they changed the battle system and catching component to something lackluster. Sucks that the text is a bit too small and there is way too much text to read.

 

I bought it day one but can't find myself to continue playing it. One day I'll get back to it though. Rather replay the first to be honest.

Season pass, what's that?

 

Unfortunately the game seems dead, no extra content related to the pass has ever been released. And if it ever does, the game will be long forgotten.

Not sure it's the best purchase for me since I'd rather be buying and playing Dragon Quest. Probably keep the steelbook and ditch the game down the line.

 

PS: No longer available for shipping, store pickup only. Now I'm glad I pulled the trigger on it when I did. Nothing available within 250 miles.

I picked up the day 1 edition since the premium is sold out. Used GCU and the $5 mystery certificate they emailed me.

I hope this is better than the reviews say.

Did you have a problem using gcu with the mystery certificate? Some have reported you can't use both at the same time.

In store or online? I thought GCU couldn't be combined with the mystery cert.

It works with GCU. I picked up a copy in store as well and had no problems. I just had him scan the code after the GCU discount and it applied right away.

Although I didn't get a mystery code this year (WTF?), I can confirm that the mystery certificate acts like a form of payment and does not override the automatic GCU discount that is applied at the register.  At least, this is how it has operated the past 5/6 years (which doesn't explain why I didn't get a mystery certificate this year...).

What's the better deal? This at $15 or Dragon Quest XI for probably $35?

The only other JPRG ive played in the past 2 years was Persona 5.

Did they scan it off your phone or did you print it? I see in the fine print t says can not be scanned off phone

There is something off with Dragon Quest XI if not for the super bland characters it just feels more geared to be more of a beginners entry to the series game....

Yeah, it's the same price; I got the Day 1 before they sold out of the Premium.  I just don't care about the extra stuff.
