In store?  We are pretty much on lockdown here so driving 20 miles RT to the nearest GS is not in the cards.  I need to find it online, or at my local Fred Meyer possibly.


If you or anyone in the family is active or veteran military, the AAFEs store has gray and neon Switch systems in stock.

I believe only the standard edition of the game got screwed out of dlc, but anybody who got the CE version has a complete version with all dlc on disc.


You are correct, the CE has all of the DLC.  It was the first thing I checked when I first played the game.

Mine will sadly be expiring soon too. Do you get the coupon after it expires?


You should receive the coupon by email about a week before GCU expires.

Ahhh lame, I think I'll pass then.


Btw, nice Reverie in your PSN Profiles banner!  I love that game, GOTY 2018 imo.


Yeah, picking off a couple of games in recent back log, really enjoying Reverie.

Anyone have any opinions on Island Flight Simulator?  I love simple flight sim games like Pilotwings.  The low rating on PSN has me hesitant though.


Unless they patched it, it has a bug that prevents. you from finishing the game if you upgrade your planes.  Super basic controls, once you got down the landing, no real challenge, except the RNG of taking risky missions.

Does PSN credit work on PS Direct?


No, it does not.  I had to use a credit card a few weeks ago for their last offering.

Is it a hassle to remove it for docked mode? I play a mix of both, but I want something comfortable for handheld mode that doesn't cover the shoulder buttons. This soft case looks great (it's cheaper on ebay though) but I do need something that's easy to remove. Also, would you still recommend it for someone with small hands? :oops:


I have silicone grips that fit only over the joycons. Those are good because I can still use them in docked mode and with the flip grip. But the bumps are so low profile. I would prefer something that feels more like a Pro or Xbox controller.


It comes off easily enough , just a twist on opposing corners and you can remove it.  I don't find it an issue when I come home from travel and remove it to return to docked mode.

Does anyone have recommendations for a good PSVR/Move dock? Recently moved and I'm trying to keep all the peripherals and controllers a little more organized.


I use this one and it works quite well.  VR Headset is ready but safely stored, 2 move controllers always charged, as well as one DS4.  There is also another mfg variation that charges 2 DS4s but I have other charging bases for additional DS4s.

Can anyone confirm they've ever gotten anything from going on a LR waitlist? From what I've gathered, it's pretty pointless. Have heard people complain they were on wishlists only to see leftover stock show up in blind boxes 6 months later.


A swing and a miss for me on the waitlist.  They announced the batch of games they were putting up for year end and one of them was my waitlist game.  I opened a ticket BEFORE the end of year sale asking why I wasn't being offered a chance at the game before the sale and they got back to be a couple of weeks later saying waitlist is not a guarantee. 



Won't waste time on that again.

Dragon Fantasy is a two game series that started out with Dragon Fantasy Book 1 followed by Dragon Fantasy Book 2.  Book 2 was updated to fix a lot of the issues with the game including some balancing ... they called this version Dragon Fantasy The Black Tome of Ice.  Book 1 also got an update on many platforms but the Vita version was pushed back.  This updated version is called The Volumes of Westeria.    Book 1 didn't have as many issues as Book 2 did, so the update wasn't as important but now we finally get the Book 1 update (The Volumes of Westeria) on the Vita with this release.


So... there are two games... this is the remake of the first one.   Though to be honest the first game was completely playable and awesome in it's Book 1 form.   It's sad though the art for this doesn't reflect what version of the game it is.

To add to (but hopefully subtract from the) confusion, on PSN in the USA only Book 1 & 2 versions are available for the Vita.  The Black Tome of Ice is only available on PS4 through PSN, though the Vita version got an EU PSN release.  So currently this physical release is the only North American release for the first DF game on PS4... and the LRG versions for both TBTOI and TVOW are only available physically in North America for the Vita.


What I've opted to do to save my sanity is just keep the Book 1 & Book 2 digital versions on my vita, and bought TBTOI and TVOW versions digitally on my New 3DS.  So I have both versions as Book 1 is completely fine to play as is without the update and I might prefer that version for nostalgic purposes.


Wow, THANK YOU for the excellent explanation.


I already completed Book I and Book II on my Vita long ago.  I also appear to own ToBI for PS4 but haven't played it yet.  So now just to decide if I was a physical copy.


Again, much appreciated.
