This morning, I went back to the same GameStop that I went to the other day and grabbed these on the four used games for $10 sale.

 

Brunswick Pro Bowling - Xbox 360 Kinect

Injustice: Gods Among Us - PS3

Lego Marvel Superheroes - Wii U

The Lego Movie - Wii U

 

Again, for $2.25 per game after Pro discount, this is a damn good deal if you aren't picky.

 

I will test the Wii U games later to make sure that they work since I've read some things on the Internet about Wii U games not working properly after they have been resurfaced by GameStops, but the manager assured me that they never resurface anything at his store.

Definitely test the discs anyway--they could have been resurfaced at some other store or warehouse before getting sent to that manager's store, unless he's somehow 100% certain both of those Wii U games were traded in at his store.

Saw this and I hate digital. Chances of seeing the same DLC included with the physical release are pretty much zero, huh?

As far as I can tell, there won't be any US physical release for Every Buddy at all--Amazon, Best Buy, and Gamestop have no mention of it, which doesn't bode well for something releasing in a month.

 

Play-Asia has a listing for an Asian edition (with English text) of the Switch version, but no such listing for PS4: https://www.play-asi...rch/every buddy

I wish it was easier to see what the high dollar trades are right now. Looking to unload some stuff with the current trade promo before my Elite Pro expires next month and I am officially without a gaming discount with my GCU dead already. 

If you type the system name in the trade-in search page (e.g., "PS4", "Xbox One", "Switch"), you can sort the results by Trade Value (descending).

should it be cheaper during golden week

Should it be cheaper? I'd say so considering they're really niche Japanese RPGs and Golden Week sales typically focus on Japanese-developed games

 

Will it be cheaper? Who knows, but I still don't like this lackadaisical approach Sony seems to have taken with their weekly sales. I still have 60+ things on my Wishlist that have never gone on sale, only a handful of which are DLC/add-ons.

I think he was trying to differentiate 'The Question' from 'The Answer' and it was just a matter of unclear phrasing. 

Yeah, sorry about that. I consider "The Answer" an epilogue of sorts.

Persona Dancing 3 and 5 really don't have much of a story. Elizabeth and Justine/Caroline get into an argument over who can dance better after the events of Persona 4 Dancing and pull each team out of a dream. Little social events occur after a certain number of actions are performed but overall it's just banter they forget like the Persona Q stuff.

It's mildly interesting to note when each game takes place with regards to their individual games' plotlines:

I'm a bit late to the Dragon Quest series, but I just started DQ11 last week to have something calm to play after Resident Evil 2 in the evening, and it turned out to be perfect for that.

I remember seeing DQ11 is coming to switch but I can't find any new information on this. I'd rather play it on Switch since I'm mostly on the go, but I am too interested now to stop for too long. Is there an expected timeline?

It's expected to release in Japan later this year, but there hasn't been any announcement of a US localization: https://gematsu.com/...-teaser-trailer [WARNING: There are some spoilers in the article, sandwiched between red text.]

I typically don't pay attention to who makes licensed titles.

Even for a first-party exclusive that was on several GotY lists?

Fernz Gate will sell out pretty quick too. I skipped that [Kemco JRPG] since I have [a differently-named Kemco JRPG] and it looks like a reskin of that [Kemco JRPG].

Fixed that for you. :razz:

Got my standard Vita copy of Spelunky. I seriously did not expect it to sell out this fast in both batches.

Posted by Vigilante on 08 February 2019 - 03:42 PM

why is that?

Some reported not ever getting any credit, while others (IIRC) noticed their trade credit totals drop somehow.

Play-Asia is running its Lunar New Year Sale.

 

There are some decent discounts for some of the vita games in this years sale.

 

I picked up Digimon Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory for $37.99

 

They also have the Persona Dancing Twin pack for $52.99

 

or Just Persona 5 Dancing Star Night for $29.99

 

Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster [English] $26.99

 

Gundam Breaker 3 Break Edition (English Subs) $46.99

 

A couple of decent prices on new consoles and more.

Thanks, I got the Persona Dancing Twin pack for $65.89 total. That ~$13 shipping charge stings but it's worthwhile for the 4-CD soundtrack.

 

Did they remove the Coupon feature??? Im going through the checkout but I dont see anywhere to add Coupon. Usually the feature is where you pick the payment option but its no longer there

It was there for their last exclusive release a couple weeks back, so Play-Asia likely just disabled coupons for anything that's part of the Lunar New Year sale.
