The year is almost over but we’re not through providing some last minute 2014 deals yet, no sir! We’ve still got awesome games with awesome goodies so I’m going to outline some of the best video games bargains on the Rice Store for you to add to your ever-expanding backlog of titles!
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Fan Edition (PS3/Xbox 360)
First up is the entry we’ve been pushing like mad, so you’d have had to have been living in a cave or using Virgin broadband for the last three months to have missed it. The fan edition comes with your choice of t-shirt from either the Adachi or the Junes designs, and comes with the first half of the P4 tarot cards.
Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- Limited Edition Pre-Order (PS3/PS4)
Our latest offering is the limited edition package for the newest installment in the renowned Guilty Gear series. We’re taking pre-orders for this beauty at the moment as it’s out in the new year.
The bundle includes a replica ‘The Backyard’ embossed and foiled case, a soundtrack CD with 10 Ishibitari tracks, a Sol Badguy belt buckle keyring, and the Guilty Gear Codex which houses full character profiles for every character in the series!
Please bear in mind that this is a US import.
BlazBlue Clearance (Primarily Xbox 360)
Next up is a Smörgåsbord (yes, I copied that exactly from Wikipedia) of previous BlazBlue titles. We’ve got Calamity Trigger, Continuum Shift, and Continuum Shift Extend for stocking filler, or at least Secret Santa, prices! If you’re missing any of the previous BlazBlue installments and you’re feeling charitably and want to keep us in the job for another year, you’ll definitely need to check these out.
The limited edition of Continuum Shift comes with artcards and a nice artbook, while the limited edition of CS Extend has artcards and a soundtrack CD.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd (PS3/PS Vita)
I watched a Hatsune Miku concert at Hyper Japan Christmas Market in October. I have not been the same since. If you also want your life to be forever altered by vocaloid goodness, then you’ll want to pick up this title. Its also on PS Vita (THE UNDISPUTED BEST PLATFORM FOR JAPANESE VIDEO GAMES) so you can share this high-pitched electronic wonderment with the other commuters on your bus to work.
Oh yeah, and there’s also FREE DLC so you can enjoy additional costumes at no extra cost! Happy!
Deception IV: Blood Ties (PS3/PS Vita)
Are you quite sinister? A bit sadistic, perhaps? Do you always go for the evil option in online morality quizzes? If you answered yes to any of those questions, thank you for reading this far into the post. Also, you may enjoy Deception IV; a game were you are the master of traps. Evil traps.
With over 30 maps, 100 traps, and some really nice online functionality, Deception IV is a strategy game revolving around the Devil’s daughter who, assisted by three Daemons, defeats her foes through sheer trickery. Its good. It really is. Plus, Vita touch-screen controls. Eh…amiright?
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (PS3/Xbox 360)
I told you we were pushing it like mad, didn’t I? If you’re not interested in the bonus stuff we’re also offering the game on its own for £19.99. ’nuff said.
My Personal Christmas Break Recommendation – Samurai Warriors 4 Anime Edition (PS4)
I freakin’ love Koei Tecmo’s Warriors franchise. Admittedly, this title was my first foray into the Samurai series but what I have played so far (every evening for the past fortnight) it is every bit as good as Dynasty Warriors and Warriors Orochi. Hopefully KT will continue to include couch coop in all of their future releases, as there’s nothing better than hyper attacking through hordes of enemy Japanese soldiers with a buddy.
The Anime Edition has additional character costume DLC, a soundtrack CD, and Episode Zero of the new Samurai Warriors anime.
So that about rounds it up!
Here’s to 2014! What a year to be an anime and games nerd, eh? Merry Christmas one and all!
