    So Amiibo Festival has no online... which means I basically can not play with anyone. Making me wonder if it is really even worth it... but the exclusive amiibos... mrrm... damn neogaf, lying with that "confirmation" of online play a lil while back.

    Mmmghgh... I am so torn... theoretically I could just buy the amiibo used later for less than 60, especially since other countries are getting them outside of a bundle... game seems cute but kinda pointless if I do not have anyone to play with. Sure, the survival mode works in single player, but I could just play Don't Starve for almost the same experience.

    ...Might get Lottie on her own...

    Last Blade really didn't have a console presence, which was unfortunate. I used to play Last Blade 1 & 2 at the arcade, and loved the style and feel... even if I was terrible at them and SamSho.

    Neptunia Re;Birth1 out on GOG. Can write off needing to get any IFI games on Steam I guess :p Huzzah for DRM-free.

    Looks like physical Gravity Rush Remastered on PS4 is a reality. It's up for preorder at Amazon.

    The Tomb Raider LE...

    How do AAA games keep making terrible LEs? >_> Some can definitely be nice, and I do own some western ones, but a majority of them are just... bad. Lara looks like a blow-up doll or something >_>

    NO ONE can complain about quality from Japanese LEs (unless it's the figure from the EU Bravely Default...) when you see... this.

    That actually reminds me a lot of the Resident Evil 5 LE... so yes we can complain about Japanese LEs. X3 Companies of all nationalities can be lazy and incompetent.

    Ok, how about "western character designs"? The anime ones come out good 90% of the time :)

    Because less effort is needed. X3 And honestly anime ones usually have creepy eyes.

    I dunno why I am arguing. X3 East vs west comments, on either side, always make me bristly. X3

    Probably on PC in the west too, since the first one was successful on Steam. Really surprised it wasn't a mobile game or something, looking forward to it.

    I don't really understand what I'm reading about it though...they're saying its not really going to be like Valkyria Chronicles was...or something?

    Yeah.....this time it isn't an srpg like the original...and apparently not even in the same world.

    It doesn't bother me that it's set in a new universe, and I don't really mind the change in artists either, but it is pretty disappointing that it isn't a strategy game like the original series.

    Still very much looking forward to it, but it would probably be better to think of it as a new series rather than a proper successor.

    I don't know where to blame SE LE's so i'll do it here. Come on... 30 usd more for the FF Explorers LE, and it doesn't have THAT many things like the others.

    I feel robbed

    Mixed opinions on the Valkyria details. I'm interested in the game, but I'm disappointed it's not actually a new Valkyria Chronicles game. Seems like it may as well be a new IP.

    FF:E is 30 dollars more? Eesh, I wanted it, but it looks like I am passing. Just could like the case....

    And what kind of game IS it if not an SRPG?

    It's an action RPG. It's also by Media Vision, they do a good job.
