New Phone has been purchased, my other one broke a couple of weeks ago now and the spare phone I have been using was driving me up the wall, so I took the plunge on a new one after deciding against getting the other one fixed, it will arrive tomorrow.
Blade Arcus From Shining EX (PlayStation 4)
My society is doing another games night and I have decided to pick up another import from Japan. One of the few that caught my eye was SEGA's Blade Arcus From Shining EX, a fighting game with characters from the popular Shining franchise that for some reason SEGA isn't even bothering to bring over to the west anymore. Hardcore gamers out there will be familiar with Shining Force but there were more games made in the franchise such as Shining Hearts, Shining Tears and Shining Wind (all three of which received anime adaptations; the former released by Sentai Filmworks and the latter two coming soon from Discotek Media). Shining Resonance is the latest RPG in the series and I would also like to pick that one up at some point.
This game costed me £31 including shipping which is a solid deal for a Japanese import. You can actually get the original base version in English over on Steam.
Not one, not two, not three, but FOUR Vita games ordered! Basically I have been meaning to build up my Vita collection for a while now and I decided to pick up these four for my collection.
This will be my first Dungeon RPG title for my collection. I've heard good things about this game and I've also heard it's a good starting point for this type of genre. It was on sale for a good price over on VideoGamesPlus compared to the current UK prices.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1
I have finally picked up a Nep Nep game. I've Platinum'd the PS3 trilogy and now finally going straight into the Re;Birth remakes. The first Re;Birth is a remake of the tedious and torturous first game so I'm curious to see how this gets handled. There is no physical release for this game in Europe so I had to import but it was on sale for a good price over on VideoGamesPlus.
Persona 4: Dancing All Night
I like my rhythm games and this is the next one to get, especially as all Atlus games prior to Deep Silver are going out of print. I heard a few remixes on the Discord chat and I liked them, and I wanted to own a UK copy so that I could grab that Miku DLC.
Ys: Memories of Celceta
My first proper dip into the Ys franchise. Ys 8 is coming this year and this game has been around for a while so I had expected stock to be running row as a result. I wanted to get it for a long time now.
That's it for Vita in the meantime. More will be planned later down the line. If I can finish Corpse Party I'll get Blood Drive as well.
Just offloaded a load of Ghibli DVD's (as I have replaced them with the blu ray steelbooks) at CEX. Purchased A Certain Scientific Railgun and Robotech Macross Saga Vol 1. I have the other volumes but I have the american version of vol 1 so for consistency it was worth picking up for 50P but god knows what condition it will arrive in.
