    Professor Layton & The Miracle Mask at last, been looking forward to that one. Though my backlog’s pretty thick right now, don’t know if I’ll be able to get much from it before ACIII hits. And then there’s Artorias of the Abyss on top of it all.

  • Zoe HD for vita come on make it happen Konamiiii!!

    • It is coming. When is the question.

  • Wait, DJ Max is only at their store period or will I be able to hunt down a PSN version if I cannot find the physical when I get a Vita?

    • sandra10

      Sony mandates that every Vita game is put on PSN. 

    •  I think they said the digital version is coming after the physical copies awhile back.

  • Couldn’t resist importing VLR. I might dip again for the EU release, but for now I just hope I’ll be able to play it soon~

      • Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward.

        • Kibbitz

          Ooooooooh, right, I keep reading it as Zero Escape, so the VLR part didn’t click.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Kojima said that the original Zone of the Enders 2 had some issues that he wanted to fix. Wonder how it will look

  • Does the re-released Dark Souls cost less?

    • well you could just buy the dlc

      •  I don’t own the game.

        • you can get dark souls for cheap now and i think the dlc will only be 15 bucks.

  • sandra10

    Bummed about Technika Tune only being available from Pentavision. $50 is too much for a handheld game but I wanted to get it with a B2G1 sale. 

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Ohhh man. Layton, Zero Escape, NightSky and Style Savvy is going to sap my wallet dry here.T_T

    • Kibbitz

      Wow, you own both a EU and US 3DS?

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        ??? All of the game there is coming to U.S region this week. And no. I only own Jpn region and U.S region here.

        • Kibbitz

          Oh, okay, read Layton as under Key European Releases so I was assuming that it was just EU only.

          • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

            No prob there.^_^ Just remember to get Prof Gentleman there. I mean who don’t want 365 free puzzle everyday?^_^

          • Kibbitz

            Uh, not me, too busy beating baddies with pretty girls =x Also am really, really trying hard to not buy anything else for now since I have a notable backlog, a buttload of financial damage this year and 2nd OGS next month and assuming it’s still on track, Fate/Extra CCC next year. And Hidamari Sketch Honeycomb BDs in December… >_>

          • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

            Ohh. It is sad there when we are limited by a financial problem there.

            And this year,you are not planning to buy Wii U there?^_^

          • Kibbitz

            Was never going to, actually =P The launch list doesn’t look interesting and there’s nothing on the horizon that’s notable yet for me personally. My hardware purchases so (DS, PSP, PS3) have all been driven by Super Robot Taisen, though the PS3 was more because my friend was selling a spare one he got from buying two huge Sony TV entertainment sets =x My JP 3DS is for P X Zone and SMT IV. Mostly trying to keep to under 150 SGD monthly for leisure but I have started buying JP Hidamari Sketch BDs, so that’s some major burn there too.

  • Neophoton

    Can’t wait for ZOE next week! I’m gonna giggle at the people who say “I paid $40 for my MGR demo and it came with a free game!”

  • LustEnvy

    Technika Tune is the only domestic release I care about.

  • Time to replay the muv luv series.

  • KHSoraKeyBlade

    Ooh I forgot Layton was out this week. Awesome.
