Tactics Ogre
« on: September 30, 2010, 11:27:12 PM »
The announcement of the Collectors pack on the main page here has got me excited and sad.  If this Collectors pack doesn't make its way to the west, I will be very angry.  It looks SO awesome and I would be THAT much to own this!!!

Best thing to do is maybe the iPhone app then...that's Japanese... and I can't get it to run on -4.0 software.

DAMMIT, I WANT THAT SOUNDTRACK.
:(

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

You are not going to get that Collector's Edition through an iOS sale, and the game itself's confirmed already if that's what you're getting at.

No.. i know (sorry, super tired to word anything right).
The iPhone app you can potentially get and has a whole bunch of artwork (allegedly, still have yet to get it working).
I'd love the collector's edition, but not much I can do with a Japanese game.  The story was pretty good, and while I can handle translating spells or equipment, the rest is a no-go.

These games are fantastic, but SO LONG!  That special edition is very tempting.

Does anyone know how someone could get a copy of the CE version?

I tried ordering via Square/Enix's Japanese online store, but it was a no go. :/ I'm a huge fan of the series and would love to have the pack just for the collectability factor because I cannot understand the Japanese language, but I've had the US version pre-ordered since the day it was announced, too.

Just curious, with the exception of some limited run, what is the point of pre-ordering? Just showing support for the genre?

You can lock yourself into any deals offered at Amazon, but for GameStop I guess it's just to get it done right away. Mind, this is only for when it's way in advance; when it's closer to release the reason is GameStop can suck and only get exactly the amount of copies pre-ordered, so it becomes a matter of either pre-ordering or not getting it ASAP.

I hear ya.

Newer games I've been getting on Amazon, esp big xbox titles like reach or red dead, where they give you the $20 for pre-ordering.

I usually only go to gamestop for old bargain hunter trips.

At this point it isn't a lack of games, it's a lack of people buying the games. :/

I always Pre-order games like this just so there's no hassle or fuss.  I can probaly get it just as easily without the $5 down by going around to Best Buy or whatever and buying it that way, but my time is at a premium and I'd rather just know it's going to be in X location on Y day and be done with it.

Also sometimes you get stuff, and in my personal situation I'm friends with many of the employees at my local Gamestop so I like to help them out on their preorder numbers.  It doesn't cost me extra, other than a slight opportunity cost loss, it never hurts to preorder either.
