In Topic: Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVIII

14 August 2018 - 01:14 AM

Ummm, did the warehouse page get nuked or something?
 
Almost none of the regular items are showing for me, specifically the Switch related items. There were several games, all gone now.


I saw the same thing. Warehouse video games went from over 3000 items to about 750 between breakfast and lunch today. Very weird.

In Topic: Nier: Automata $24 at Best Buy (GCU)

Nier: Automata was a top 3 game of 2017 for me (w/ P5 and HZD). While there were some missteps (graphics were appropriate but just ok, sidequests were lackluster) the overall package is outstanding.  You'll get more out of the game's lore if you've played Nier or the Drakengard series, but it's not required to appreciate the game.  And since no one else has mentioned it, the soundtrack is phenomenal.  Probably the strongest beginning to end music I've heard in a game. 

 

The weirdest thing about N.A. for me was that while I was playing, I enjoyed the game but I wasn't "consumed" by it as is sometimes the case with games I love.  However, after finishing it (that ending is special) I couldn't get it out of my head and spent my lunch breaks for two weeks watching videos and reading articles about the game's lore and arguing for its consideration as a masterpiece.  I still listen to the soundtrack at least once a week while doing class work.  It definitely isn't for everyone, but it is a special game.

This is a great month! I've been holding off on Rime and Knack for just this reason.  Looks like we also get Grand Kingdom on PS4/Vita.  I found GK to be a very enjoyable RPG/SRPG game and happily put about 40 hours into it a year ago.  Throw in Mugen Souls Z on PS3 and that's several "big" games to go with the smaller indies.  Sweetness.

I also ordered Wednesday night and have not heard anything from GS.  I have an order # on my account (listed as "open") and a receipt from Paypal, but never got a confirmation email from GS like I have in the past.  I emailed them today...we'll see how long it takes them to get back to me.  

 

I only ordered two games, Injustice 2 and Yakuza 0.  Yakuza was on sale again today for the same $30 and I wanted to just cancel my previous order and pick it up in store, but there wasn't even an option to cancel.  Loathing GS right now, especially since everything I ordered from other retailers that same night has already been delivered.
