You can add Maine into the list of states that receive points for trade ins, traded stuff in Friday.


Please add MD to that list, at least as of late June. Thanks!

Yeah, I've noticed this as well. Basically every new title that I have been interested in hasn't had the 20% preorder offer applied yet. Dead Cells, which comes out in 9 days doesn't have it and has been orderable for months. I've got that preordered from BB so it doesn't bother me too much. Moonlighter though is not available at BB yet, and still doesn't have the 20% off yet from Amazon. Many other titles as well.

It seems like they are phasing it out - and trying to do it quietly.


Just posted a topic to this effect. I just got an official reply from Marketing and Promotions saying only select ASIN will be eligible from here on out 😕

Is this the Asia English version of Nioh Complete?

https://www.play-asi...-subs/13/70bnih

It just says "Chinese subs." No mention of English.

I just received this and it pretty much has all the language and subtitle options you'd like from an Asian release.

Yesasia has the complete details

That is a good price, but since I already have them on vita I think I might chance it and hold out for $20/$16(GCU)

 

Skies of Arcadia Skies of Arcadia Skies of Arcadia....

 

A thousand times this!

 

Still one of my favorite RPGs of all time.  I probably put over 300 hours scouring the GC version for all the discoveries and grinding up to lvl 99 for all my characters.

Just curious, did you buy a new system in the same transaction? If you did, that's what caused the extra $25 bump.


I did "side"grade to the CoD Slim so that my be the case! Thanks!

YMMV:

I just traded in my PS4 500GB vanilla that was on its last legs and got $195 for it instead of the estimate $170. Even the girl working did t know why but neither of us was going to question it. I can confirm both Spidey 2 and Ezio traded in up according to the spreadsheet too!

Good time to upgrade a PS4 folks!

I know that this isn't in the direct vein of today's games, but just a reminder that if you missed out on Soldner X2, Play-asia has the multi-language ASIA version for $24.99 + $4.99 shipping  (not sure is there is only 3000 left or only 3000 total).  A steal considering and it includes the artwork chosen by vote and the DLC on cart.  I love beautiful bullet hell + Gradius games, so this was a no-brainer!

Oh and it only took about 6 hours to ship after I paid.

Cheers!

Just thought I would give my latest nightmare story from Rice Digital (UK):

 

I had pre-ordered God Eater 2 and SAO: Hallow Realization back in June/July when they went up at Rice.  I paid with Paypal.  Come last week, I contacted them wondering if they were ever going to ship, and they told me that they never got them in stock.  I just happened to be one of the people who didn't get contacted.  

 

I think they personally didn't want to eat the cheap shipping since they raised their rates.  Still waiting for the Paypal refund, but I already ordered off ebay for half the price ($95 at Rice vs. $59 for both at ebay).

 

Just more evidence that Steve at HeavyArm or PA will be getting my Vita purchases from now on.

How do you log into Paypal before checking out? I can log into LRG anytime but for Paypal check out, I only see the option when I'm actually checking out...

 

Or they've successfully stop those fucking pre-loaders.  

I use another tab on my Chrome browser and log into my acct from there.  Logged in on both LRG and Paypal, separate tabs.

Sheesh,  Looks like they took down the PS4 vanilla SC (either that or they were insta-sold out).

 

I was worried for a moment about people adding via URL, and thinking that my chances of getting CSH in the future were nil.

Kept clicking the main page banner and had already logged onto Paypal from another tab.  Whew!

 

 

Hope you guys got yours!

I second SAO: Hallow - I have the region 3 release and am stagnated on floor 89-90.

 

Lost Dimensions

 

Trillion

 

Ragnarok Odyssey Ace (I know that's four, but I am all post-game on it and I'd love to rope some other CAG'ers into playing, or help out a fellow CAG'er get up there)

Just cancelled my TMS order from Amazon. 

 

While I respect everyone's opinions on censorship here, I feel there is so much coming out that each product/company/publisher needs to compete at a high level to really earn my spending dollars.  When I receive orders like the one yesterday (Eshy and Logy Plus LE + Stranger of Sword City LE), I realize that I have so much to play, so little time to play it, and my priorities are shifting away from gaming in general (being a family man and all). 

 

I still love gaming and love....LOVE my Vita, because it keeps me gaming on short time, but Nintendo has made some really strange censoring decisions lately.  This is the last straw for me though.  Too much backlog to worry about picking up every niche title simply for the purpose of owning every one.

 

Hope this helps any of you on the fence.

It is so obvious that the FF main line development teams need to strip away all the BS.   People don't need nor want AAA graphics, motion capture, fully voiced games.  Look back to what made you successful in the first place and try to replicate that success with just a few modern tweaks.  The current corporate structure over there has incredible delusions of grandeur regarding this franchise.  Square Enix would be best off firing all of them and making fan-made FF games at this point. 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this sounds like a advertisement for Bravely Default. ;)

 

I agree that SE needs to take a step back from FF and try to find what made the series work in the first place.  Unfortunately, I fear that the solution is sitting over at Mistwalker.




#13246623 Updated: Nintendo makes official announcement. Super Mario 3D World, DKC:TF,...

Posted by Earendil_aod on 13 March 2016 - 12:59 PM

In for pikmin 3 and dk tropical freeze thanks cag. How do the nintendo selects game discs look compared to original releases? I owned the games digitally with empty original cases would be good if I could put ns disc into original case.


Same disc artwork. I picked up DKTF, DKCR, and Pikmin 3 and they are the original artwork on the disc. Also, I will echo the sentiment that Walmart has a lot of these at the old MSRP, but you'll just need to have them scan the UPC.


#13012673 Best Buy is Replenishing Ocarina Of Time 3ds New

Yup, can confirm as well in OH. Lots of new copies in the Cincinnati area BBY stores.

I resisted the urge to sell mine when they peaked. Just couldn't get rid of such a gem.
