I needed the comedy in this post today, brilliant!

 

And remember if you hate on this deal the terrorists win.

I'm thinking about picking up Ray Gigant, anybody here buy it yet? It's gotten pretty decent reviews considering how niche and different it is. I think it looks fun, is supposed to be kind of easy, but that's fine with all I'm playing right now.

Also how's Return to PopoloCrois: A STORY OF SEASONS Fairytale, I saw it on the eShop for $20, seems pretty cheap?

I am interested as well but I don't pay full price on any digital game.  Retail I would have for an RPG like this.

If there was ever a post that is destined for the regional forum this would be it.  As the youngins say...in for 20....

Is NISA even in business?

I want to cancel an order but their website doesn't have that function so I can't do it on my own.

I preordered Stranger of the City and Atelier Escha&Logy.

The order is stuck in processing.

The Atelier game was released in January.

I'm guessing NISA wants to save money and ship them together.

Stranger of the City is cheaper on Amazon/Best Buy with the 20% discount.

I want Atelier Escha&Logy but not that badly (especially when the other Atelier vita games are digital only)

NISA is not replying to emails. (2 emails, ~a month has passed).

I called them a few times but they're not picking up.

After a few minutes on hold, the call automatically goes to voicemail.

A voicemail was left a week ago but they haven't followed up.

After this fiaso, I'm done with the NISA online store.

Note if you ordered Atelier and Stranger in Sword city on the same order, nothing ships until all preorders are in stock.  I am pretty sure there is a huge warning about this when you place a preorder item in cart.  If they are not in the same order, then yes there is an issue.  I order from them all the time and never had an issue so far.

Nice clickbait

Dont tell me people are trying to buy this to play. If they were they would just get the digital version. People looking to buy the physical copy are doing it to try to resell on eBay to some poor sap.

Well I bought it physical to play.  (Well really I asked for it for Christmas and the person who got it preordered)  I know my WII U has no space to download this and I have the 32GB model and only have two games on it downloaded (neither I paid for, Wind waker and Pikmin 3) Plus I want to plan FF3 and there you have it my storage is gone.  Yes I can use an external drive but it is a PITA to connect an external drive with AC power just to store the one or two additional games I might use on the e-shop.

 

So it is not as cut and dry as you think...sometime opinions are left best to be unsaid opinions.  If I could keep an e-shop person tied to my account and not the WiiU device I might think otherwise, but I buy way to many games to not have any value left over a physical copy provides.




#13121899 Rodea the Sky Soldier - Wii U - $36.20 - Amazon

Posted by groundskeeper on 26 December 2015 - 12:53 AM

I feel like if this does sell out NISA will just print more copies... they probably want the first print to run out before they reprint it without the Wii version of the game. 

Wii version is the best version out of the three released.  Probably the only version worth playing...




#13119903 Thank You CAG For Another Great Year!

Posted by groundskeeper on 24 December 2015 - 08:24 PM

Thanks to CAG I was able to save enough money to buy 300 copies of duke nukem forever and donated them to a local Childrens Hospital for Christmas

Not sure if that is cruel, thoughtful, generous, sadistic, or hilarious.    Maybe mix and match what you like.




#13115263 Just cause 3 $44.99 @ amazon PC/X1/PS4 (digital/physical)

Posted by groundskeeper on 22 December 2015 - 04:36 PM

They were ridiculous on the Xbox One version that I rented. I'll be going PS4 though. I guess they're getting the patch that fixes the load times first.

The patch should be out by now:

Me I need to wait till this is sub $30 before GCU before I can buy.  I already have too many game I could play in my lifetime.....




#13089050 Best Buy Ad 12/13-12/19: Buy 1 get 2nd 40% off on Nintendo published games

Posted by groundskeeper on 08 December 2015 - 08:14 PM

Hell yes. Time to get some niche 3DS games.

I am really digging Stella Glow.  Usually not a SRPG fan but I have about 50 hours into this game and I am two battles away from the end.  Doing a lot of grinding characters to the same level.  You get a new high powered character at chapter 9 which OCD forced me to level my other characters 7 levels to catch up.  For true SRPG fans this game might be a bit easy.  I say that because I suck at SRPG games.




#13084133 Target Ad 12/6-12/12: Rise of the Tomb Raider $39.99 | Cartwheel Offers...

Posted by groundskeeper on 06 December 2015 - 01:08 PM

Pardon my naivety but is cartwheel in store only? Closest target to me is two hours.

I hear you.  Closest one to me is in another state and you have to cross a lake on a ferry boat that will cost you about $40 round trip.  Target just does not want to come to Vermont.




#13081642 Xenoblade Chronicles X Special Edition $89.99 - Amazon, GameStop, Best Buy

Posted by groundskeeper on 05 December 2015 - 02:43 PM

After all the complaints regarding this CE, I'm not going out of my way to get it. I'm going to Best Buy on the 14th to get a Remote Starter installed (just in time for the cold), and if they have any in stock at that point, I'll grab one.

Ugh, the installers at the BB near me are horrible.  Would never let them touch my truck again.  I was too lazy to do it myself to begin with and was a bad idea.  After three attempts to have them install I had to fix it myself.

 

Hopefully they are better in your area.

Like someone else stated....

 

Bethesda can Fuck themselves for how they handled merchandise for this game.

 

Nuka Cola is going for $95+ on ebay PER BOTTLE.

I would rather have Crystal Pepsi

Posted by groundskeeper on 10 November 2015 - 03:49 PM

I printed out an official receipt from BB showing the Season pass $0.00.  If they charge me I will fight for at least a gift card because, yeah,  I'm like that...
