RPGCast - Episode 417: "Amiibucket"

This week we have two essential tips for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We ask, "What's too much to spend on a video game?" Is this FFXV star too much for you to handle? And finally, you won't BELIEVE who we caught hanging out in inappropriate swimwear!

    $200 for the worst FF (okay, after FF2 -NES)?! I wouldn't pay $10 no matter how many extras. Okay, I actually wouldn't use the download space if it were free.

    Also, why are they charging $7 for costume sets? I probably wouldn't download those if they were free either, tbh, but I can't understand anyone who would spend $7 just to dress up the characters like characters from another game. Just play that other game! Seems pretty outrageous to put these costume sets separately too. If you're charging $7 for this rot, at least do multiple costume sets in one.

    I pre-ordered Persona 5. I don't usually pre-order games, in fact I usually wait for the price to drop, but when it comes to Persona, all bets are off.

    I preorder on Amazon as a matter of course because the 20% off basically pays for a year of Prime and then some. If Best Buy had Gamer's Club Unlocked I would use that.

    Last thing I preordered was a set of FFXII Zodiac Age (standard edition), Culdecept ReVolt and RPG Maker FES.

    When I first started Zelda, I was thinking I'm upgrading nothing but hearts. How wrong I was.

    I do preorder and always do it in a store. I could just do preorders through Amazon, but I'm old fashion, so to speak. I recently preordered Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

    Sorry Chris, I almost called in because you sounded down about the lack of calls, but my loathing of listening to my own voice ultimately won out. I don't really have anything that interesting to say anyway.

    As for preorders, I try to keep them to a minimum and I usually limit them to the very occasional special edition that catches my eye and games from smaller publishers where the preorder maybe actually helps. So right now I have the Persona 5 "Take Your Heart" edition, Tokyo Xanadu Vita Special Edition, Fire Emblem Echoes, and (please don't hate me Anna) Summon Night 6 on Vita preordered.

    Also, sitting here on Friday evening, I hope the rumors of damaged Persona 5 cases causing another delay aren't true. Right now my twitter time-line is full of people freaking out about canceled orders at Amazon and rumors that it will be delayed till June.

    Oh, one other Persona 5 related inquiry; isn't it kind of weird that there is a Persona 5 controller skin that's included with the standard version of the game but not with the special edition? I personally don't care because I can't imagine putting stickers on my controller, but it feels weird for the Special Edition to miss something the regular edition gets.

    I don't hate you <3 Honestly, I wouldn't even be that mad if Chris wanted to buy the Summon Night games, IF he'd play them. He probably won't, and I definitely won't. But ultimately people should buy and play what makes them happy :)

    Welp, looks like they were just rumors:

    Apparently some were accidentally canceled by Amazon, but there is no problem with the games/packaging. I guess after Persona 5's tortured development cycle I'm ready to believe the sky is falling at the first sign. My bad.

    I went back and looked over the people on reddit complaining and everyone who's order was cancelled was outside the contiguous US (typically SEA/Hawai'i). So it may not be a big mystery after all.
