#14164111 AI The Somnium File Limited Edition $59.99 (msrp 89.99) at Target

I just finished Zanki Zero with its mediocre gameplay. Why do I still want to order this?


Not sure if Zanki Zero also was, but this game is by the guy who did the Zero Escape games. I loved those, so I preordered this one.

Yep! The trilogy got ported to Playstation 4 and Switch. It is confirmed for US too, but I haven't seen any word on if it is coming physical yet. It was only about 32 bucks shipped from Japan tho, so I figured why wait :-P


I got it too but it was about $37 for me. Looking forward to playing it!

Still on the fence with the CE. Curious to ask this and get some opinions. A member here yesterday misconstrued a post of mine and lambasted me regarding scalpers. I digress...

I am interesting in the game, and the only way to get the steelbook is with the CE, so that would be my first and probably only buy. That being said, the 'rarity' of it may be either a low production, or flippers. Hence why I posted what I did, I can't get a gauge on if I should buy it now because it's actually limited, or wait a few months and get it for half price. After getting burned on plenty of CEs before (looking at you Ni No Kuni 2 CE), I'm very careful on which I buy now.

Also, has anyone noticed the MASSIVE hail corporate campaign for Spiderman? Every damn website I go on has articles, and stickied ones too. Even non gaming sites are posting about it. It's honestly turning me off of the game with how much in your face and blatant advertising going around, especially on reddit.


It's impossible to know 100% during the preorder phase, but it's doubtful this one makes it to half price considering how fast it has sold out in preorders.

I'm really enjoying waiting until Thursday to play a $150 game I ordered directly from the publisher three fucking months ago.


Not to mention a game that SE charged us in full for a full month ago too.

Lack of progression? I’m guessing they announced something about the game I’ve missed but that doesn’t sound good.


Sorry for the late reply, but yeah they announced a few weeks after E3 that Sekiro would have no leveling up or skill trees to unlock or anything like that. So I'm going to wait til it hits $10 before I get it.

You still have to unbox it, and set it up. Even wiping those fingerprints off with a microfiber cloth is going to leave micro scratches on a glossy finish. Most wont see it, but they're there.


If they are indeed just "micro scratches", they wouldn't bother most people I would think. At least not me I can say.

I have never had a pre order cancelled at best buy ever.


I've had a few of them cancelled but was well compensated by them each time.

I'm very excited about Cyberpunk 2077.


Me too. Still don't know anything about how it plays, but it was good to see the art style and the design of its world.

Since someone mentioned Cold Steel, can anyone tell me if Cold Steel 2 has an ending with some closure or does it leave off on a cliffhanger?


I thought CS2 had pretty good closure for a JRPG ending. Obviously they left some loose ends for CS3 and 4, but CS3 starts like a year and a half after the end of CS2 and feels more like the beginning of a new story to me (at least of what I've played of it) rather than just a continuation of the original story. Though like Draekon said, it's a little bit of both.


#13996624 Best Buy GCU is being Discontinued?

Posted by Commodore Wheeler on 19 May 2018 - 12:01 AM

Disappointing to hear. Still would rather give them my business than Amazon or GS, though. My local BB treated me well even before GCU, so I'll still spend my money there. But probably won't buy as many games as before, at least not without waiting for price drops/sales.

Time and Eternity good, or good good?


From what I've heard, it's actually good good. People I know have told me it's arguably the best DRPG outside of the Etrian Odyssey games.

Sounds like a great reason to play on Switch, actually.


You can turn them off if you don't like them. I still think it's better to have the option of doing them if you want.

For me, the Switch is exclusives and franchises that are mostly on Nintendo consoles, like Harvest Moon.


Yeah, I agree. I pretty much only get exclusives on the Switch. I like doing achievements so if something is also on a Sony or Microsoft platform, I generally go with that. For Shining Resonance, I ordered it on PS4.

Voting Link I'm not saying vote for #1... but vote for #1!

Spoiler


I liked 6 best, I voted for it. Plus 1 is already the cover of the LE box.

IIRC 6 won when they did the same contest for the PS4/Vita version of the game.
