Can anyone recommend some Asia English games or EU games for PS4 that I should get before the free shipping promo ends?

 

I already have Legend of Mana, Ninja Gaiden Master Collection, Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Fortune, Deadlight Director's Cut, Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, inFAMOUS: First Light, Alienation & Matterfall.

Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition (PS4) is one I'd recommend.  $29.99 at Play-Asia.

I haven't shopped at Gamestop in forever, is buying a preowned game still a crapshoot between getting the original case & art or has that improved? I'm thinking of getting Demon's Souls - I figure most PS5 games are complete, just figured I'd ask.

I haven't bought anything from Gamestop in a long time as well (and that's unlikely to change), but I'd be surprised if the odds of getting the original case/art had improved much.  As you mention, though, I'd think for PS5, the odds are in your favor.

Reminded myself I need to pre-order the Takeover (PS4).  I wish Best Buy would carry this one, but given it's not Castlevania or Scott Pilgrim, understandably no. 

 

Glad LRG is releasing a physical release, albeit I'd prefer if it were in the $29.99 bucket.

Gravity Rush Remastered is back in stock again today, for anyone interested in picking it up.

Glad to see Gravity Rush RM finally getting some love, albeit I didn't like the game much (that camera).

 

Another example of a solid game getting attention after the studio responsible for it bites the dust.  I'm doubtful Sony would bother reprinting Gravity Rush 2, but may be if there is enough sales with 1, it'll reconsider.  Sales of Gravity Rush were so bad, however, so I'm doubtful these small reprints are doing much of anything.

I bounced off the Wii version of this game pretty quickly.  Didn't like the motion controls at all.  Some of the reviews have mentioned that the non-motion controls are not great (which makes sense), and that it's probably best to play it using the joy-cons (no thanks). 

 

As I don't have a Switch (and won't for some time still), I may keep an eye on this to pick up down the road.  I'm sure Nintendo printed a gazillion copies, and it looks like the interest in the game has dropped pretty quickly (again, makes sense given SS is not considered among the best/great Zelda games).
