    Hoping for Bayonetta to become normal DLC, as unlikely as it is, since I haven’t been able to preorder the game from Gamestop. None in my area, and the site won’t let me order anything for some reason.

    • Aoshi00

      You are in the US right? I usually don’t buy from Gamestop either, but have to for the Bayonetta DLC (they texted me to pick up tmw), Fire Emblem artbook, & Ni no Kuni steelbook case.. The Sonic Generations Casino Pinball stage and Super Sonic avatar were never sold as DLCs either, but they were available on the Europe/Jpn PSN/XBL… wonder how fun the single player is since it’s only $30 and I don’t play online very much..

      • Muffum

        I am indeed American. I heard that the European version comes with the code actually printed on the back of the cover art, like the Japanese, while the US just gets the code printed on the receipt. I am incredibly envious.

    • LynxAmali

      I do believe the preorder bonus was released later as standalone DLC later on if I’m not mistaken with the Japanese release.

  • puchinri

    Oh, crap. I forgot about Anarchy Reigns. Aiyah. . .

    I wonder how many people from the comm are getting it? It’d be nice to brawl with others from around here~.
    (It was fun playing E.X. Troopers with a couple of people from here!)

      Heads up: If my EU copy of Anarchy Reigns is compatible with your region’s, I can try linking up for a match. I’m not very good at competitive play, but hey, having fun is more important.

      I now also have E.X. Troopers, along with a local friend of mine. A 3-man Medal-earning party would be fun.

      • puchinri

        Oh, that’d be awesome~!
        Haha, I’m not great at it either, but the fun is definitely important.

        Even better! Or, technically just as good, but still very exciting! I’d be down for both of these~.

        • gamefreak86

          Both imported EX Troopers?

      • Guest

        I’m Wossamotta_U on PSN. I will gladly throw down for E.X. Troopers or Anarchy Reigns.

      • raymk

        It should be because the japanese version is compatible with our version. I think they all share the same server.

        • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

          I wouldn’t be surprised if all 3 versions are essentially the same program with the same files, just licensed differently.

          • http://twitter.com/monkeyking2135 monkey king

            They are, the japanese version is even called anarchy reigns by the 360 itself, the title screen says anarchy reigns as well; it’s just 1 big version with all the languages on it for all regions.

    • IshimaruKaito

      ill play you! i have it for the 360

  • SirRichard

    And so begins the long string of early 2013 releases beating on my wallet.

  • phangtom

    I beat the game last week, it’s pretty decent, but something feels missing, in similar game (DW) you level up and collect weapons, after I beat it I found no reason to play it again, maybe for multiplayer but I have lags so can’t enjoy it much.

    • Asura

      The game is nothing but multiplayer as I see it. I put 40 hours into the JAP demo alone.

    • https://twitter.com/#!/Ojsinnerz Firo_Prochainezo

      The whole point of the game was for the multiplayer mang.

  • Asura

    I’M USELESS CUZ I’M RUTHLESS!

    Cannot wait for tomorrow. Will stay up all night playing it.

  • Göran Isacson

    Awww yiss, time for me to sound some alarms.

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

  • IshimaruKaito

    • IshimaruKaito

  • Elvick

    My copy shipped yesterday, hopefully it arrives today. Games from EB Games usually get here really quick, which is nice. I really hate EB Games/Gamestop, but their online stores are great and since they get so many good exclusive things it’s hard to not order from them at times.

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Online store… great? I can’t even buy from their online store anymore…
      :( Have fun

      • Elvick

        I haven’t had issues. Even when I ordered Blazblue: Calamity Trigger from Gamestop.com it arrived in Canada on launch day.

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          I live in the US. I made a post about GameStop in the Open Thread. I called them up and the representative just told me their website won’t accept anything from me anymore. I changed my name, address, credit card, phone number and tried checking out as a guest. I can’t buy from their website anymore despite the fact I’ve been buying from them for years. Not sure what happened…

  • isfuturebright

    too bad I’m selling my x360…. wish it was released before :/

  • gamefreak86

    Got copy from FS but returning after I found out bayonetta is ebgames exclusive. Good thing passed by there last week with friend who was running errands.
