So I love this series. Unconditionally. Irrationally even. So much so, I went and preordered the game, which is currently only in Japanese. Not only that, it was the limited edition, with a drama CD which for the most part I won’t be able to understand XD. I considered preordering it on Amazon, but at that time they still didn’t ship games outside of Japan. So I went with Play-Asia. A site I’ve used before for things here and there. Never a game costing this much… I figured I was going to get smacked with a hefty import tax and VAT and what have you. So I prepared myself mentally. Hell. It was only shipped last week pretty much, 2 weeks tops, so I wasn’t expecting anything to arrive yet, usually Play-Asia’s shipping is pretty slow…. so you can imagine my shock and delight when it turned up this morning. No card saying ‘PAY THIS NOW’ or anything. It just appeared… it even had the full amount declared on the box, AND it was marked as Merchandise… not gift…. so I’m baffled as to why I didn’t get slapped with import tax. Not complaining. Just dazed and confused. Happily so. (More pics of the unboxing below the cut.)

So because of Build Fighters, we got back into building Gunpla, and subsequently I heard about this game getting an English Asian release… and Rice Digital stocking it…(Super out of stock now I’m afraid. They did say it’d be very limited!) things happened, stuff got added to baskets. Long story short. I bought the game. I have no regrets. Apart from the fact we now have to fight over PS4 time. Part of me wishes I bought it for the Vita too. But I figured it’d look cooler on the big TV. Which is does. Very much so. But as I’m typing, the husbando is playing. Fair enough I spent close to 4 hours playing earlier. But he got to play all of yesterday while I was at work. So he’s ahead of me. When I bought the game! He didn’t even want it…
I think I’m actually losing track of what I’ve got preordered… I remember quite a few things but without going through my emails I’m sure I’m forgetting something… I don’t even think it’s that many things…
Preordered and on it’s way –
Pokemon 3DS Cover Plates (which technically I already have, so I’ll just resell these)
Preordered and not out yet –
I *think* that’s it… I think….
So… yeah… I don’t just buy this stuff out of impulse. It’s technically all planned months in advance.
I finally did it. I finally bought a PS VITA. I should have waited for the January sales probably, but finding a Vita during the post Xmas sales was hard enough… I was worried there just wouldn’t be any left… And since I mostly got money for Christmas, I’m calling it my Christmas present to myself 😄 Sad, but hey, I’ve wanted a Vita for ages. I just kept putting it off, and off, and off.
But now it’s mine. And it’s beautiful and shiny and lovely. I ordered a 64GB memory card which will arrive Wednesday, so I can move things from the diddy 8GB card it came with. I already have Danganronpa, Persona 4 Golden and Norn9. The latter of which I am currently playing and enjoying immensely, otome games with time travel bullshit in for the WIN! With bonus post apocalyptic stuff too kinda!! I’m almost through the first route I think… Wanted Masamune, couldn’t have him till I’d done Senri or Kakeru annoyingly. So I went with the Eren Jaeger-voiced character. Have a trailer/op for it!
Update: On Masamune’s route now, almost finished actually. Loving Toya ❤ he’s too cute.
Over Christmas I also ordered another Pikachu, because I wanted/needed the Charizard hoodie and card and the sounds. I called this one Denki ❤ And it arrived today. As is my 64GB memory card hopefully. But I shall wait and see.
I got it a day early, aka yesterday :woop woop:
A couple of months ago I acquired Tomodachi Life via a friend from Hyper Japan, when they were having the half price sale. By this point I’d already played the demo and was kind of interested, but didn’t want to pay £35 for it XD.
So me and my friends all have this game now, and we’re all oddly addicted to running our islands full of our Mii-versions of friends and family.
I find myself comparing it to Tamagotchi’s, because you need to feed them and keep them happy by giving them stuff. Only they’re digital versions of people you know, or people you’d like to know in my case too, since I’ve made Mii’s of B1A4. And anime characters. I made a Shana for my little brother to marry, but he ended up marrying my teacher assistant from China, Maggie. And my dad’s married my friend Athina, and my mum is still single. I married who I wanted 🙂 Though we have 3 kids…. which is disturbing. Specially as he had the idea 2 out of 3 times…
The game itself is pretty odd, you are referred to as your in game Mii’s lookalike, so to all the islanders, I am ‘Meimi’s lookalike’, who provides them with sustenance and stuff. I’m basically their god. It’s Sims-esque like that, but you have much less control. If you want a certain Mii to marry another Mii, it can be tough. Luckily I didn’t have to intervene on my Mii’s choice. I’m pretty sure I was asked out, then rejected him, and then later on my Mii asked him out and he said yes, thank god. So there’s a barrage of screencaps under the cut lol.
