Solatorobo: Red the Hunter
« on: February 13, 2012, 12:34:15 pm »
This game has been dropping steadily over the last week, now down to $15.80 $15 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0057VWTS8/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER).

Anyone play this game yet?  I'm not familiar with it at all and am wondering what it's like (and if it's worth the $16).

I haven't played it, but I remember wanting to buy it when it came out and... it didn't happen. Sorry, can't help you on that one.
I am surprised to see it going down in price though, you'd expect this to be one of those games that gets a low print run and it ends up becoming rare and expensive :P

I completely agree, which is why I'm tempted to buy it even though I don't know anything about it.  But it's listed on VGC!  So that means someone around here owns it.  But whether or not they read the forums... :P

I've played it. I enjoyed what I played. I'm ordering it right now for what it's worth.

Sweet, good to know.  I think I'll order it along with the pre-order for Devil Survivor 2 and Radiant Historia.

Ha ha. I just ordered it with the pre-orders for Devil Survivor 2 and Radiant Historia :)

I also went ahead and picked up a few other things.

I picked up Solatorobo when it was released in Sept. In Oct/Nov I was about 1/3-1/2 the way through, and I haven't played it since. However I'm still working on Skyward Sword so that might not mean too much. I enjoy the characters, atmosphere, and story, but the game is too easy. So easy in fact that I got bored with it at times. I definitely plan on beating it, and I think it's worth the low price. Hopefully it still comes bundled with the music CD.

What do you mean pre-order for Radiant Historia? Wasn't it released a year ago on the DS? I picked it up in the fall under one of amazon's buy 2 get 1 free deals. Unfortunately it wasn't bundled with the music CD.

It's not really a preorder for Radiant Historia; you're correct about that.  But Atlus just announced a second printing of the now-hard-to-find game and Amazon is taking orders for whenever they receive the new copies.

Before Atlus made the announcement, Amazon had it priced at $60 or soemething.  Yeah, too bad I don't have the soundtrack version either... sealed, it's going for over $100 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Radiant-Historia-Limited-Edition-w-Bonus-Soundtrack-Nintendo-DS-BRAND-NEW-/250994010622?pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item3a7068a9fe).

Hm, good to know.  I'll still pick it up... too easy might be better than too hard.  I picked up Bangai O Spirits back when it first came out, and it was just too much for me...  But yes, this one should be the one with the soundtrack.  I haven't seen any copies in the stores without soundtracks.

The copy I ordered should be coming with the soundtrack per the item description. I'll let everyone know for sure when it comes in but I picked free shipping so it might be after this weekend.

I just got mine too!  Perfect sealed condition.  The price at Amazon *continues* to drop!  Now just a little over $13...
