I would say Yes!
But all so I would like the limited Vision with the Art Book because. I like stuff like that and the Character Design of this Game remindes me to the vocaloids and black rock shooter.
I love it just from the character desing. :o

I'm affraid TECMO Koei will not bring the limeted Edition to europ.
Damm...why?

I may be wrong on this but I think it's down to NIS if we get limited editions or not. TKE are the peeps that distribute it in the UK and other European countries.

If I'm wrong then someone please correct me.

Funny thing is, I had ordered NISA's Limited edition bundle but decided to cancel, the store owner who confirmed my cancellation said we'd get a Hardback artbook version as well in PAL territories.


I totally understand the situation and have closed your order, NISSO-5597, for you. You might be happy to know that our PAL release of the game will also include a full color, hard-cover art book, as well.

Hmm... That sounds interesting. I kinda wonder why NISA or TKE hasn't spoken anything of this earlier. But i'm kinda still pondering over importing it from the US since it'll be about 60$ dollars if i import it, and about 90$ dollars if i buy it here. I really hate Swedish taxes. :(

Yeah The description of the game is certainatly ..... different.




Gameindustri - a parallel world protected by four goddesses, who are engaged in a war with one another in Celestia. Meanwhile, on the human world, mankind wages war with monsters unleashed by a being named Arfoire. The tome, Historie, contains the knowledge of the past necessary to end both wars and shape the future. What fate awaits Neptune in the present? The goddesses' battle for Gameindustri, the Console War

The console war? Xbox 360 anyone ;)

*Oh yeah come to think of it GAME still hasnt put up those Pre order bonus art books with

Being removed means they have shifted their allocation, but you never know who might have cancelled before they got shipped. Hope you do manage to get one however.

My pre-order was in as soon as the promotion was added to it's product page.

Do GAME remove the bonuses once they start taking payment? I remember I went to preorder Trinity Universe on the week of its release and the artbook offer wasn't there, unless they just ran out of them.

I remember I went to preorder Trinity Universe on the week of its release and the artbook offer wasn't there, unless they just ran out of them.It is down as a pre-order bonus, it'd make sense to remove it on release day, so long as it's ordered by the day before and they have spare allocation you would still get the artbook, however I don't work at GAME HQ so I wouldn't know.

They keep them up until they run out of stock. Because games like Neptunia/Trinity Universe etc. only appeal to a niche audience not many copies of the game (and thus the pre-order bonuses too) are made. It's kind of a shame that Europe runs out so fast, the NISA store still had the Neptunia premium package available a few weeks after the release date before they finally managed to sell out a few days ago.

Leady FF ^^ confirmed that they're completely out of stock for the artbooks via PM so I think I may wait until the price drops until I grab the game since I have no incentive anymore for a day 1 purchase which is a shame. :/

Unfortunately, Europe gets shafted pretty bad when it comes to DLC.

BTW the game has some reviews, like TriUni it's not getting higher than 7's.

Also is it just me or is the auto rather spastic? Sometakes takes ages for another character to continue the conversation and sometimes just stops entirely.

I'm not feeling this as much as TriUni. Why does it take ages to grind levels?! I barely beat Black Heart the first encounter (IF just hung on) and now she's just whooped my ass the second encounter. My team is level 15 and need like 16000 exp to level up and I only get 650 exp from the best group of monsters. Barely able to afford stuff as well.

However I love how the Japanese voiced Compa says Neptune's nickname. Nepu Nepu~.

I'd rather just stick to dubs anyhow you need to be about LV 20 in order to find her easy i know i did. (you get a awesome move for neptune when you reach that level) the easiest way to get exp is monster call on those purple circle things and if you can beat that monster you get a tonne of exp depending on how tough it is (dungeon lv)

I'm aware of the monster pads having high level monster in them, it's still not ideal, it makes fighting the regular monsters seem pointless. Heck if I got like 2000 exp it'd be better.

BTW, What's your PSN ID?

Man, you guys are way further than me! XD I'm enjoying this a lot more than I thought I would, it took a bit for me to 'get' the whole combo system - I guess I should have started on Trinity Universe when I got it!

I kind of like how the only worthwhile exp is only from bosses, at least there's only a handful of battles in each dungeon before the boss.

TriUni's combo system wasn't editable, all the combo's were set and there weren't anywhere near as many combo's, so playing that first wouldn't have helped.

BTW I discovered in the Emergency request cave in Lastation that there is a monster that gives 1250 exp each and you sometimes get to fight 2 at once, it makes things harder but has great reward and it has a monster point that gives 13000 exp, it made things easier to grind in there even though I was 2 levels below the recommended level.

To each their own, I guess. Personally I'm tired of listening to the same 3-4 voice actors who don't even sound like they're putting any emotion into their role whatsoever. So many games have been ruined by dubs because of this - Star Ocean 4 being the most recent horrible example I can think of.

I'll admit star ocean 4 hasnt the greatest voice cast (niether did chaos wars that had the worst) but Nis-a Usualy tends to do a good job with dubs in their games you should at least give it a try every once in a while.

I didn't think Star Ocean 4 was all that bad : P But I agree with Black_Dragon, NISA's dubbing has gotten noticeably better over time and I'd go as far to say that Neptunia is one of their best so far, but like you said - each to their own.

Unfortunately, my PS3 has decided that it doesn't want to read discs anymore so I won't be able to play for a while... : (

EDIT: Apparently it's $2 per character on the US PSStore and they were released 3 weeks after it launched in the US. Better only be 1.49 for the UK. It sucks having party members you can't even use. I'll probably have completed the game before they release them.

whats nippon ichi?
They are a video game company. They make tactical games and have had a partnership with koei for a while now. Nippon ichi stands for japans best thier games always have humour in them and the stories are awesome. (Disgaea is the prime example) Nippon ichi's counterpart is NISA (nippon ichi software america)

Yeah (apparently some people have complained to Nisa about that as well, why get 1/4 then pay to get 4/4. but there are more characters on they way RED and 5pb basicly following the way The JP store did it.
By the time they release all the Tri uni DLC i assume everyone must have finished (cause i know i did) i guess it'll be the same with neptuna

There's a 10 character minimum limit on the forum. Posting "10 chars" "Character limit" etc. is a common method of getting around this.

Unfortunately that's just how games work these days where you're given day 1 DLC shoved in your face (Bioware games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age are called out on this quite a lot). The sad part is? People actually buy it so it does work whether you like it or not. It's quite annoying to see in this type of game though, especially since you apparently only really have 1 group of members until the end game. A niche game like this needs everything going for it so when you only have a static group for most of the game whilst they dangle other characters in your face I imagine it can be quite annoying. But hey, at least you can sleep easy knowing that you wont have to wait a year and find an improved JP only version of the game being announced...

Celedin
08-03-11, 10:50 PM
Yeah, I think we'll be seeing more DLC like that in the future, it's unfortunate but what can we can do? At least from looking at the US store, all the DLC for Neptunia is pretty cheap.

I'm glad we got the patch to skip battle animations though, I can't even imagine playing it watching the animations each time...

Well, Thats True we have to buy it otherwise we'd just be left out. and yeah that does tend to happen, a lot with the GOTY editions Resi 5, GOW and your example's.

I'm glad we got the patch to skip battle animations though, I can't even imagine playing it watching the animations each time...

I personaly wouldnt mind, but during a new game + or a speed run i guess i would need it.

You just reminded me of older games like FF8 etc - So much time wasted just watching the same 3 minute summoning sequence over and over.. fun times.

This is generally why I wait. I'm in no rush, especially with my huge backlog of games to play. I'm fine with waiting for the inevitable 'Full' version of the game for <20 brand new rather than paying 40 for the game at release then a further 10-20 on ridiculously priced DLC. I've just been annoyed finding Vesperia, Star Ocean 4, Graces etc. all be announced 1 year later on a totally different platform with significant upgrades, especially since I only got my PS3 this week so they were never really an option.

Those were the days~

I know what you mean, I picked up Dragon Age a while ago for 17.99 with all the DLC which is a bargain for me but sucks for those who brought it all at launch. Vesperia and Star Ocean 4 were just used to increase 360 sales in Japan so when the exclusivity expired it's not too surprising that they were eventually brought over to the dominant (HD) platform there. Keeping this on Neptunia, I thought Green Heart's character was pretty funny - trying to appeal to everyone, but I don't really get why the PS3 is kinda tsundere...

Also looks there's no Neptunia DLC this week, not that I was really expecting any but it's nice to dream. ;p

Oh you got a PS3 recently? (well i am kinda the same i only have mine for about 6 odd month now) well those weren't an option for me either. however Vesparia remains JP exclusive, star ocean needed more space so they had to add JP voices and extras to make up for fan backlash and graces well thats finaly coming.

Pokemon Black has drawn me away from the game. I'd just got the Leanbox Key and was rescuing Blanc (Love how she ends up getting carried away cause she wants to stay and fight. lol) so pretty close to the end of the game I think.

ok, ok thats a little obscence if you liked tri uni you're gonna love this the humor in this game is awesome :) i lol'ed like hell its great seeing a few game refrences that you recognise and love ;)

but id truly give the game 8.5/10 (roughly the sames as emerald's) cause no game is perfect but this one is good you will be able to get a platinum on it easier than Tri uni thats for sure

I'd probably rate it 7/10. I think it's a great game in most aspects, and it really is my type of game, but it's a bit lacking certain areas if you ask me.

I really like the character design, voice acting and story/dialogues though, that's probably the game's strongest points.

Well NIS America is still the publisher I believe, it's their name that's listed on the PSN store and also their name on the box.

Hmmm well, I love Neptune or Nep Nep if you like. I actually really find her funny. I found the battle system a little confusing at first and slower than Trinity Universe's battle system. However I have since got used to it and am quite enjoying it. I really like the soundtrack too. I don't know if it's just me but I'm finding the text on menu/equipment screen very small. Really enjoying some of those Trophy sounds, lol. They just seem to keep happening, lol!

I can't believe I'm gonna say this but I never really give games a bad time as I pretty much enjoy them for what they are. However until I get a HDTV there's no way I can play this. I am truly gutted. The game took forever to arrive and I tried it and liked it but text on the equipment menus, the explore and search feature is just way too small. No problem with the text during conversatins between characters but on the other points its just too small. So this is me bidding farewell to Nep Nep and co. until I get a HDTV.
Ah well back to something else I've got on the go.....................................

To be honest Rorona didn't bother me and niether did Trinity Universe. However I think it's worse in Hyperdimension. Thing is I'm also full of the flu so staring at tiny text made my head and eyes feel terrible. I'll give it another go when I've got rid of this flu. Maybe it'll be less straining when I'm not ill (if that makes sense). I just pray that Ar Tonelico doesn't have text as small as Hyperdimension.
I won't write it off just yet plus I suppose when I do eventually get a HDTV (if I stoppepd buying games I could've had one by now, lol) it's something to look forward too, lol!

It's exactly the same with Ar tonelico 3 too, just so you've been warned. No offence though but SDTVs are pretty much seriously outdated these days with game developers aiming 99% of their focus towards 720/1080p resolutions. Though you can grab a 32" full 1080p HDTV for 200, probably less if you go second hand so there's honestly no excuse not to upgrade, especially since it makes such a fantastic difference.

I don't think thats the case, I mean I did as much as I could at Lastation before going to Leanbox and the monsters were really easy in the early dungeons. I think that is partly why the story suffers cause each landmass has a story and until you rescue Histy it's criss crossing between the 3.

I never said I couldn't afford to buy a new tv I just didn't see why I should when my SDTV works perfectly well. However drama over now as I have bought a new tv today. So HN here I come.

And I didn't replace my SDTV until TVs actually hit a decent price (Managed to snag a 32" TV a few years back in the Christmas sales for 250). I just don't see how it's offensive - I was simply stating that there's no real reason not to upgrade these days with TVs being so ridiculously cheap. As I said, if you can afford to be throwing 35-40 at games at a pretty regular interval (Hyperdimension Neptunia, Dynasty Warriors, AT3 all coming out relatively close for example) I'm sure you can scrounge 150 or so from somewhere. Well either way I don't really care if I'm portrayed to being a **** or not - he still got a TV because of it and he'll more than likely be happy from now on.

I intend to make an American PSN account and getting some points added onto it for my AT3 DLC (since I'm playing with my NA disk) so I figured I'd grab an American Neptunia too so I wouldn't waste whatever left over points I'd have left over. :) Managed to get it for about 40 which isn't too bad for a premium edition of the game + delivery from America. Now it'll be a fight between which to play first - Disgaea 3, Rorona or Neptunia. :p

Judging from the screenshots and artwork, it seems as though the Goddesses of Gamindustri were all defeated and imprisoned by this new foe, I assume the Sisters are going to try to save them. Maybe as a way to show that Handheld gaming is a powerful force too.

EDIT: Gone back to Neptunia tonight, I bought Gust and Nisa and gone on a grind, I found a Clione on Planeptune that gave 2,000,000 experience, it took a while to beat but the rewards were worth it. Got Lastations weapon and going to do Planeptune.

Likely as DLC again, I wish they'd actually get a role in the story and interact with the main 3 characters, 3 Character main cast limits hilarity potential, TriUni is a funnier game merely because of the cast size and their interactions with each other.

EDIT: All Goddesses GET! Boy they were close fights, it's a good job I was able to 100% some healing item skills, Blanc was definitely the toughest of the 3 whilst Vert the easiest.

Awesome you have now got the best guys on you're squad ;) but you have to make sure that you can switch as well now that you have got all six slots filled (nis-a and gust would be in the EX slots or 2 other char's) Remember blanc has the best attack power in the game and Noire has some awesome moves :)

Oh and in Tri-Uni there were some limiations to the cast as well in some scene, the optional charaters only talk to each other or make thier own comment, Unless it was an important event scene it would be good if they talked to the main char's in the regular scences unfortunaly it was pretty much the same in neptuina

But TriUni has 8 main characters as opposed to Neptunia's 3, it's just a shame is all.

Ah yes 2 stories that eventualy become one so hence main 8 characters as you said but neptuina revolves around neptune as tri unui revolves around the netheruniverse but that aside we ended up getting of track lol :)

Anyway what do you all want to see new in Neptune MK2
Personaly i'd like to see

unique monsters ( i saw that jaki monster in Cross edge too talk about being dedicated to recycling)
Longer story (personaly i found neptuina too short as opposed to Tri uni)
Towns.... though whats the chances of that
DLC charecters to play a better role than support


EDIT heres some More info relating to NMK2:http://scrawlfx.com/2011/04/keiji-inafune-in-hyperdimension-neptunia-mk2
Interesting...

Needs a good monster overhaul that's for sure.

You can't blame Neptunia for that really, it's just 1 main story as opposed to the 2 stories in TriUni.

Not a chance for towns though, maybe a bit more dungeon freedom however.

News of the Japanese Neptunia mk 2 LE has been released! The LE will contain two figures (looks like they could be Nendoroid Petits that we'll never see here :P ) and a soundtrack CD. Pre-orders for regular and limited editions will come with a artbook.

Both of those, I got 98% of the Beastiary and 96% of the events, I'm sure most of them are due to lack of shares. But I'll hold off getting the platinum till Red and 5PB get added as DLC in July. So far off.

I wanna get all my characters to level 99 before I think of buying the level cap. Mind you whether I'll get it or not depends if I can get the platinum in this second play through with 2 new characters to level up.

though its gonna be tough... only 6 chars are allowed to get exp leaving 4 out. and not only that the highest giving exp monster doesnt seem to give enough now. i only hope 1 of the 200 dungeons will give more than 10 mill exp

The first level 400 dungeon available in the store again you need to be about LV70 to break it

There are also a few processer parts up as well..

Black_Dragon
15-06-11, 09:59 PM
And now you can get up to level 600 with the 3 release dlcs and a lv 500 and 600 dungeons are available but i assume they will be easy like the lv200 dungeons that have really weak monsters and boss

If memory serves me correctly Nisa and Gust are both 1.59, I think! Or maybe 1.89.

1.59 is indeed how much they are each. but with Red and 5pb your also paying for the numerous cutscenes that come with them, I've seen about 10 of each and more available.

Might I add I think Red is my new favourite character in this game.
Her and her wifey collecting, gonna go for the harem route this girl is. lol

I love Gust, I love the way she talks :)

Oh yes, worthy additions to the party they certainly are. As stated before I think Red could be my new favourite character in the game and 5pb is also quite the cutie.

lol sorry that was an error on my part i only briefly checked the price and i was really drowsey lol.
anyhow its a shame that both red and 5pb events arent english dubbed guess i'll switch to jp then switch back, and the dlc dungeons are getting tougher but still, not great exp.

Well I finally finished the main story of this. Still got quite a bit to do pos t game but it's time for a break and crack on with another NIS game.
Loved it, I just wish the battles were a little faster. Even with the L2 press they could've been faster but heh ho. Still enjoyed it it immensely.

Faster in what way? The duration of them or how the battles feel? On hard mode with L2 mashing you can finish most fights within a few seconds with 3 standard attacks then a Neptune break. If anything is left alive then just clean up the rest with the other 2 characters. That actually kind of annoyed me that such an overpowered move unlocked so early which made the game even easier than it already was.

Maybe it was just me but the battles just seemed to drag. I preferred the battle system in Last Rebellion and Trinity Universe and alot of people hated the battle system in Last Rebellion. However I will go back and finish everything I haven't and I'm really looking forward to the sequel.

Zalwis
02-12-11, 03:56 PM
Eh, I wouldn't say the battles dragged.. I'd say the game itself dragged. I'm not sure if you purchased DLC or not but there's not much monster diversity, the combat system becomes mind numbingly boring after a while (which is a shame considering it has great potential) and you're stuck with only 3 characters for the majority of the game.

Yeah, it certainly looks quite interesting for an app, but it being for iphone sucks. Kinda hoping it'll do well so NISA will translate the android version too, but for some reason, I kinda think most fans of the Neptunia games have android phones and not iphones, so it'll fail. Might be wrong about that though.
