        Axeru777 Reverie! Practically finished it, so thought I'd review it.
        Billybobbean I'm not sure. I did use the link, but afterwards logged in, and manually went back to the page, so not sure if you need the link. They only do it for decently made reviews though. I'd think they'd welcome reviews on any product, personally.

        And honestly? On the flipside? The whole anti-SJW movement that supposedly tries to defend a lot of the games I like is just the fucking same story. I like Senran Kagura etc. and I think they have a right of existence. I'm on the same team, but fuck, I can't stand those people that, every time a boob shows they go 'oh, this'll be censored because of SJWs' or 'this'll never make it over because of SJWs'.

        Nah, fuck that. That'll never make it over because the market for these games is relatively small, it may cost a lot of money to bring it over (they can be text heavy), so there's a simple cost/benefit analysis here.

        The same goes for those hating on diversity in games. You hate that they're pandering to "leftist liberals"? Who cares, man? Compile Heart panders HARD to horny teenagers (said the married 20-something wearing a custom-made Compile Heart shirt at work), and that was fine. Why isn't it fine that other companies pander to other people?Don't like it, don't play it. It's aaall cool.

        Akros, thanks for clarifying that. I was going off the fact that I get advertisements that are linked to the U.S. PSN store on my PSTV, so I apologize if I mis-understood how it works. What i'm super curious about now though, is if you use your JPN account on a NA PSTV, what games are the advertisements for? Are they all for U.S. games that you can't technically buy because it points to the US PSN store?

        Regular Gundam Breaker 3 isn't really rare (people call it so because it never came out in the west)

        The other 2 have a low print but almost nobody seems to care about them so they are easy to get.

        But rare doesn't always mean expensive, goes the other way around too.

        Seems like it's currently going to be a PS4 only. I'm not sure either why the lack of multi-console, considering this is the Japanese release we are talking about.
