@SNIPER4321 ah of course, the inevitable SNIPER comment...you must be tsundere for this since you seem to follow my Japanese comments alot
It really seems like these blogs will seem monthly now so please bare with me. Anyways, I have gotten what I believe to be the last few games I am getting this year and thus here they are...including that item I hinted at in my last blog post.
In my last blog, I mentioned picking up a new limited edition 3DS as well as a limited edition version of a PS3 game. So, lets get the 3DS out of the way first,,,
I was planning on getting a "Fire Emblem: Kakusei" limited edition 3DS at first, as everyone who knows me could have easily guessed(for those confused as to why I am getting a 2nd 3DS, my most anticipated games never made it overseas). However, the prices were really expensive for just a simple 3DS and game(around $530-$560), so I decided to try Yahoo! Japan Auctions and won a different 3DS for the same price. Of course this doesn't make sense at first, but you will see the difference between this one and just getting the 3DS and the game in the following pictures.
The first two pictures are pretty obvious, the box it came in, and the 3DS itself that is shiny and metallic looking which looks kind of cool. Especially since every part of her body has a different metallic color to it. The latter picture however isn't quite as obvious. On the right is a holographic folder which contains two images on either side, on the left however is an artbook...well kind of. The reason I hesitate is that it's just a cover which contains I believe 3 or 4 artbooks which is shown in thus guy's unboxing.(There are 3 versions of the New Love Plus 3DS, I am showing pics of the version I got which is of Rinko)
For those curious, yes there is also an outer ribbon which keeps the entire collection shut in addition to the above one.
(and yes those are 4 artbooks)
It also comes with pins of each character and a soundtrack CD as shown above.
The final thing was a wall scroll, but I couldn't find an image of it online, and I don't have a decent camera with me so alas it cannot be shown.
Truth be told I knew very little about the "Love Plus" franchise and only knew that it was a highly popular dating sim for the original DS. So this will also not only be my first Japanese handheld and game, but also my first dating sim. I guess I can practice my Japanese listening too.
The PS3 game was actually not a full limited edition as I am picking them up parts at a time. I am aiming for the full Famitsu DX release which is basically an "ultra" limited edition in which case I got all the extras from that and just need a standard limited edition now. So far I have the game, wallscroll, and calandar.
In addition to that, I picked up 2 other games very recently. The first was Nier which I found for cheap(around $11), and I managed to get "Paper Mario: Sticker Star" with a $10 discount thanks to NewEgg's promotion.
Lastly, I would like to say that it has officially been 3 years since I started watching anime(started on 11-20-12)...so many seen, so many more to go. Anyways in that department my favorites this season are "Chuunibyou demo Koi ga $hitai". "Btooom!", "Bakuman 3", and "Initial D: 5th Stage" has promise too. Also, my suitemate is making me watch "One Piece" so I'm trying to finish that as soon as possible.
(yes, Chuunibyou's title got censored )
I believe that's it for now, and feel free to comment
Those are some nice picks up you made and it's been a while since I've played a Paper Mario game myself, is this one on the 3DS pretty good or is it a bit of a let down?
@macrules_640 Interesting you should ask that about the 3DS one. I would say gameplay wise it falls somewhere between how great the older Paper Mario titles were and the okay "Super Paper Mario". Storywise though, it's definitely not up to par with any of the older games. It also sucks that you can't level up, have partners, and equip items but my biggest problem with it would probably be no leveling. You randomly in a world find an item to increase your hp, but that's about it.
Awesome 3ds you got I really do like it :D the Art books look cool too:) I do like the Toki to Wa it does look good game Both Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai and Btooom! has been really good this year I do need to watch some Inital D 5th stage too
@Dam505 Thanks, and Initial D: 5th Stage is releasing bimonthly which is kind of sad, but it also allows you to catch up as well
wow those are some serious special/ultra/whatever edtions! :P i wish more of that stuff got localized >.> that's a good milestone for anime watching, you've certainly seen more than me :P Btooom! would probably be my favorite this year, either that or Another
@megamannt123 It would have been great if they were localized for sure. Btooom! is pretty great, but the cuteness of Chuunibyou gets to me especially with what the plot involves...I guess my preferences also lean towards slice-of-life shows as well :)
I really hate Nintendo for region-locking the 3DS, but at least it gave you a reason to treat yourself with a LE one. Are you planning on buying anything on Black Friday?
@Super-Poke-Bros pretty much have everything I was looking for, I was mainly going to get Paper Mario on Black Friday, but thanks to the promo I don't need to. All the games I want are Spring of next year which means I better bulk up my wallet :)
