  1. *sigh* Do we really need another thread for this? There's two already: Yeah one trophy is different, but does it warrant a third thread for this? I don't think so.
  2. That's odd. I guess it'll just be announced when it releases, then. My guess is that it will just be a stealth release like Nurse Love Addiction. According to vndb, it's only ever been on PSP and PC:
  3. I can't seem to find anything about this coming out in English. Based on the trophy list, I would assume that it is happening. However, when I google it all I get is the trophy list on here. I doubt it, but if anyone knows anything I'd love to hear about it.
  4. I don't think I mentioned this before, but this will be the third time I've platinumed it. At this point, I could probably do it in my sleep, lol. It's too bad I didn't get X on Vita; perhaps then I'd actually be motivated to finish it.
  5. I never thought they'd turn to crowdfunding, but if that's what it takes for more Yuru Yuri, I'm fine with it. It hasn't been long and they already reached five times the goal amount. Here's the link to the actual page if anyone is interested: Oh yeah, and there's going to be a Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu anime. Apparently, the first announcement was back in August, but I completely missed it... Anyway, for those of who are unfamiliar, Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu is a 4 koma by Katsuwo — who is also the author of Mitsuboshi Colors. I was kind of disappointed when Mitsuboshi Colors got an anime, since Hitori Bocchi is far better and deserved it more (imo). At least now we can have both.
  6. I'm only missing one trophy in Project Diva f now. I just have to watch the video of the last song. Maybe I'll go back and finish X now... but damn, the grind is unbearably boring. Also I'd like to add Bullet Girls 2 and God Eater Resurrection to my list. I already have Bullet Girls 2, and will probably start it soon. I'm still waiting on God Eater to arrive, though.
  7. Persona 4: Dancing All Night Dancing All Night Obtained all trophies At first, I couldn't remember why I didn't play this more when it came out. I love rhythm games and often play them long after getting the platinum. However, I shelved this game almost immediately after getting the platinum the first time. It only took about three songs for it all to come back — the music sucks. Before the torches and pitchforks come out, allow me to clarify; the songs themselves are fine, but most of the remixes are shit. It seems many of them follow the same template: strip out everything that makes the song good, add in some unnecessary drum machine sounding bullshit, and throw some awful effects on the vocals. Fucking brilliant, really. The "Snowflakes" remix is pretty good though; I'll give them that one at least. Anyway, enough ranting, let me think of the positives... well, the story is decent, and the gameplay is fun. I'd rather talk about Persona 5 Dancing instead, since it's basically everything this game should've been. Moving on: Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight Dancing in Starlight Obtained all trophies. When I only had a few trophies left, I noticed that I was close to 5,000. This is actually another reason why I platinumed P4: DAN again, but I'll get back to that in a moment. Due to a lack of planning and/or awareness, I had nothing lined up. I needed 56 more trophies, which would've taken a lot longer had I got them from some of the other games I've played recently. It was then that I remembered P4: DAN — not only was it 40 easy trophies, but I also wanted to play it again anyway. It was perfect (except for the disappointment I felt when I remembered why I didn't play it that much in the first place...). Once again, I got the platinum and shelved the game soon after. Figuratively rather than literally this time, since it's digital. Didn't I say I was going to talk about P5D? Oh, right. I prefer Persona 5 to 4 in almost every way, so it's hard not to be biased when talking about the spin-offs. Even so, had the roles been reversed, I doubt I'd prefer P5D. Yes, the remixes really ruin the game that much for me. Moving on, P5D fixes the biggest problem I had with P4D. The songs are kept intact, and not butchered by atrocious remixes. There are remixes, but the original versions of those songs are also in the game (except for a few). It's not entirely accurate to say there is no story. There's nothing like the story mode in P4D, however. I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing, though. Instead, it has been replaced by social events. There are eight for each character, and it takes quite a while to unlock and view them all. There isn't much to say about the trophies; much like P4D, they're incredibly easy for a rhythm game. There's no real grind to speak of, either. Anyway, I still haven't played Persona 3, so I won't be playing the spin-off anytime soon.
  8. Four dollars for Magic Attraction is really cheap, even for the regular edition (assuming that's what it was). Missing a deal like that really sucks. Yeah, I can't recommend Mandarake enough. It's nearly impossible to just browse. The deals are too good to pass up, so I often end up buying a lot. In a previous order, I got the limited edition of Alive & Kicking for 400 yen. Right now they still have copies of Great Activity and Ultimate Diamond at around the same prices I bought them at (here and here). In fact, they probably have most of what I bought still in stock.
  9. I couldn't pass up that "great" 10% off sale.
  10. My heart skipped a beat when I saw the picture included in the Ultimate Diamond LE... just... wow *ahem* Anyway, the whole order (including shipping) was 6890 yen (~61 USD). That may sound like a lot, but the shipping was 2290 yen — normally it is half that much. My guess is that it weighed more than usual, since everything but the Sora no Kiseki the 3rd OST was a limited edition. If you want to see the exact prices: Magic Attraction and Dream Skipper cost the most; most likely because they're older/more rare. The rest was really cheap, though. Great Activity was a surprisingly low 100 yen. Keep in mind that it's both the limited edition and in great condition. Mandarake is the best.
  11. Wow, thanks for all the information. It's good to hear that there are no missables or online trophies. I'm not too worried about the difficulty. I mean, I'm sure I'll get my ass kicked, but I'm persistent — if nothing else. Oh, and I forgot to mention, but I just bought the game on ebay (the Vita version, of course). It'll probably be a while before it gets here, though.
  12. My most recent order from Mandarake: It pretty much went the same as always: "Paying for shipping on one item would be a waste, I'll just add a few more things..." Nice, I somehow missed this post.
  13. That's a good observation; I hadn't thought of that. The first time I played it was shortly after Shinovi Versus. I remember it feeling like a downgrade in almost every way. This time, however, the most recent SK game I played before this was Peach Beach Splash. That's undoubtedly my least favorite game in the series, so I guess it's not surprising that Estival Versus seems so much better in comparison. I have a few questions about God Eater Resurrection (this isn't directed at you, since you don't seem to have it on your list): Are any trophies missable? This seems like the kind of game where it'd be a pain in the ass to miss something. I doubt it, but any online trophies? I'd probably get those out of the way first, assuming they exist at all.
  14. I actually managed to get the platinum on time, but I just went back to sleep after, lol. (Shiki speaking English as she should, none of that fake French nonsense) Anyway, this game is a lot better than I remember it being? Maybe I've completely lost my mind; I'm not sure. I was very critical of Estival Versus when I first played it. It's hard to believe it has been over two years since then. I'll try to do a proper write-up in the most recent platinum thread later on. Usually if I try to write these things after drinking a lot of coffee... what was I talking about? My thoughts are all over the place, and it just ends up being a bunch of incoherent nonsense. I may add some games for the western date, but I don't want to make anything official yet. Most likely it will be Bullet Girls 2, and I'm looking into God Eater Resurrection right now. I downloaded the demo on PS4, and I like what I've played of it so far.
