Disaster Report 4 reminded me of that Japan Sinks series on Netflix where it starts out pretty serious and then goes ham with the JP quirkiness about halfway through. I had a good time with it and would definitely get the next one. It has a Shenmue level of "bad" to it that was kind of charming at times. 

 

It also has some of the best combatin gaming

I see US versions listed on Play-Asia for Fatal Frame Maiden of Blackwater (Switch, PS4, Xbox). Are those new?

Playasia has had them listed since the announcement but you couldn't buy them until now. I still think they are just listing things early since there is no announced physical release in the US.

I was working at GS at the time of the Xenoblade reprint and we would often moved games over to "used" when they weren't selling or OOP or whatever reason the company decided at the time. We would get a list of games and need to remove them from the new section if we had any and gut them and place a used sticker on them. Most of the time they were games no one cared about and often they were niche games or older sports titles.  The same happened with Xenoblade though most stores had 0 copies so it was just something on the checklist that was ignored.

 

At some point our whole district had received brand "new" copies of Xenoblade that were immediately gutted and moved to used at the higher price which had been raised due to "the game's rarity" The same thing happened with Digital Devil Saga, Nocturne, Yakuza 1/2, Fatal Frame, and other older games that got reprints later on after they had already been removed from the new section in the system.

So do people just use their monthly certs on currency or something if they don't find anything worth buying by the end of each month? I went to a GS for the first time in years the other week and someone I knew was working there and I ended up getting a membership for the first time since they got rid of the 10% off used games. It is a bit lame you can't use them on pre-orders lol

I haven't bought anything from gamestop in ages. If I buy online will it come sealed?

I asked best buy if they pricematch gamestop.com and they said yes, but they said the product numbers didn't match :/

I would say it is new enough where you will probably get a sealed one. Stores stopped gutting new titles awhile back but there are still a ton of games out there that are "new" with just a circle sticker sealing it.

Am I missing something? I don't see anything in that screenshot indicating their exclusivity.

Sorry it was in the tweet  it doesn't say exclusive though they are mentioned specifically. I am hoping it pops soon so I can sleep

Not sure anyone cares but VideoGames 911 on Amazon has the ESRB PS4 version of Disaster Report 4 for $58+$5 shipping which is near msrp. The game has been hovering the $95-$130 area for awile and PS5 does fix the performance issues from the PS4/Switch versions. I was a bit skeptical at first but I got my copy in on Friday and it was legit. I was also pretty happy to find out I claimed the Epilogue DLC back when it was free on release.

Can you explain how you did this?

For example I typed out "Disgaea 4 Switch" > clicked on shopping tab on google > I see that one is 9.1 miles away from me but it doesn't say where > click on compare to 5+ stores > I see that it shows one available 9.1 miles away in Long Beach. I looked at "Gamestop Long Beach" and called one of the stores there and asked if they had it. They said no but the other store in Long Beach had one.

Never knew that about Persona Q. That is a shame. I checked my launch copy from the CE and it worked and started the game but I would probably play digital whenever I end up playing it just because I wouldn't want my game to crash halfway or something
