imageGames in Japan typically get released on Thursday and this year that’s Valentine’s Day. Kadokawa Games took advantage of this and created Lollipop Chainsaw Valentine Edition. It’s the same game from 2012 with extras like a movie disc and a bunch of desktop toys. Namco Bandai has mecha game Battle Robot Spirits and Silent Hill: Book of Memories makes its debut on Vita.

      Not the Valentine’s day edition, but I just bought the original the past wednesday. And yes, I did manage to keep a straight face.

      Back at home I realized most of the game was really bad, but I really enjoyed the first boss fight. If all bosses are like that I might actually go and finish it one day.

    The movie disc— it isn’t, um, THAT movie disc, right? Like— the porn?
    …because then i’ll import it.

    Recently went back to get a bunch of trophies and honestly, I enjoy this game! I came to the conclusion originally that it was a fun one-play through game with a weird story and style with great dialogue but lacking in the gameplay department. Though it mixes it up and you are often doing different things they are mainly gimmicks with zombie cooking inbetween. I actually found the basic combat and killing zombies alot more fun when I came back to the game, but maybe I was just alot better it. It has lots of collectibles if you’re into that kind of thing even if you do have to grind them out. At the end of the day though it’s one of those games that has quite a bit of mass “appeal” but niche love. Probably not worth the original 59.99 or so I paid for it when it first came out but would definitely buy for cheaper.

    Very curious if we can get more details on this, would love to know what this movie disc is as well as the toys. Interesting Valentines gift! I could definitely see myself playing this game with the right girl. Me and my friend actually do a weekly radio show where we talk about gaming and since it lands on Valentines we are doing an iconic gaming couples segment. After sifting through the obvious Nintendo couples and a few others, Nick and Juliet came to mind and I said it jokingly. Though not iconic, the fact they came to mind definitely made me think of how few couples/ love stories there are at the center of most video game plots.

      Feel the same. It isn’t a bargain title, but at a bargain price of $25 and under I think it’s definitely worth it. The production value is great, art-direction cool, and overall progress solid— but the gameplay is certainly not up to par. For bosses/scenarios, its really fun, but the in-between, which is 80% of the game, suffers between identifying itself as either a brawler-esque game, or an action title. Shame too; it’s a really neat little game that, refreshingly so, doesn’t take itself too seriously.
      I actually have been considering importing either this Valentine or the original premium edition. I don’t know why, but it just seems like something worth having. Both cost about the same as the original $60 anyway, so I might just go ahead and do it.

    Is it only me who wants Sakura-sou to be localized?
