Question: Since Sword Art Online is actually two games one for the PSP and one for the PsVita. Are the games separate? or have they both been merged into one?

They have both been merged into one. The PSP game has been upgraded to Vita visuals aswell. Basically its only one game with the content of both.


This weekend i let loose and i am beyond myself with joy!

I got:


I tried them all and i loved them all so far. I am also loving Fire Emblem radiant dawn atm. Its an awesome sequal. And i had a nergasm when i saw that Ludger's first Arte is Azure Edge, since its the same one Yuri gets (my favorite main character of the series).

Also couldnt resist getting the next wow expansion. After all the new MMO releases of the last 2-3 years one thing became clear. If you want a sub based MMO, theres only 2 choices. Either WoW or FFXIV:ARR. Everything else is a failure/failing and/or is F2P where it finds sucess going the cosmetic route with content updates that are small in size. FFXIV ended up beeing too grindy and most of my friends dont seem to take a liking to it so i am going to give WoW another go. The new expansion is sounding great. It also helped that it was 5 euros cheaper than the regular price and brought a sweet Deathwing mousepad for free (this is a store promotion, not blizzards).



Also, Ragnarok Odyssey Ace is gonna get an expansion completely for free next week! All in all, i'm a happy gamer right now.

so i'm not quite sure how i made it this far without ever playin a raiden shmup. picked up the android compilation raiden legacy an used a six axis app for control. it contains raiden, raiden fighters 1 & 2 and raiden fighters jet. freakin love them. then i remembered raiden iv came out on xbox 360 but after seein the prices on amazon ($72) i decided to pass for now. then this weekend i found raiden iv overkill on psn for $20. so much raiden awesomeness in such a short time. now i just gotta find the playstation version which contained 1 & 2 and the ps2 version of 3.

I just recently sold Raiden 3 (PS2) for 70/$116, Raiden Project (1/2) on the PS1 is a lot cheaper though. If you play the first one though remember it came out in 1990.

There making a Raiden V for the XB1 if you like the series.

damn, they're all over ebay for $15-20 in good condition. as long as it works, i'm game. i'd like to have the "long box" version of raiden project but not sure if i want it $45 bad. lol! still have an old crt tv in the spare room so it shouldn't look horrible.

raiden v would not be incentive enuf to get an xbone. mebbe they'll port it like they did iv some day for the ps4. don't have one yet but that'll be the current gen system i pick up if i get one.

Check Ebay. Raiden IV and Raiden Fighter Aces can be found for less than $25.

Cool about the new Raiden for Xbox One.

Edit: Arghh...late to the party! lol

I seriously get too many games. Too many sales. Here's just the past two weeks.



The Witcher 3 was given to me by MBers Northeastmonk and Alucard. And AA is on iOS for the iPhone and iPad. I'm saving that for a CA to NY flight Im taking in Oct though. Not including the Witcher, I think all of this was around $60.

Also, here's a random PC part:

Click for full size


It's a 2.5/3.5 SATA to eSATA/UBS3.0 HDD/SSD dock. Nice for doing PC repair work when you want to access a HDD quickly without opening up a machine to put it in. Also makes cloning a drive easy as pie.

Yeah... i'm thinking of getting that too, but i'm unsure if its worth the price. I see myself playing it once but then i wont touch it again. Happens with these story games, but for some reason i find ace attourney acceptable. Oh well... i might get it on physical and just resell it later if i want.
Dont think i'm buying anything else this month anyways. I just dont have time to play everything. xD

Oh and DS, very nice buys. Love those Sonic games. I dont know what journalists were drunk with for reviews, but Sonic 4 episode 2 is the best 2D Sonic i played in years.

Now just have to wait for 5 months. I plan on getting the localized version as well but(at the risk of the JP version selling out and possible localization delays) this atleast guarantees being able to play Bloodborne soonest possible.

Also got Metro Redux for PS4. Been playing Metro 2033 and..really cool. Very atmospheric and fun shooter. I had a lot of fun with Last Light and the previous game is really good as well.

I've played Extermination and Run Like Hell (on the Xbox) before but I've got the sudden urge to play some older horror games again that I enjoyed before.

Thanks. Not sure when I'll get to them though. But at the price, it was a no brainer just to give it a try.
