    Hey hey, remember this game? Well hold on to your horses kids, because this game may actually finally be coming out soon! Oh yeah. You better believe it. The date on Amazon right now is 11/1 and that may or may not change, but the game has been held up by Microsoft cert. No longer! If you check the add-ons section of the game marketplace and look under O you will see Otomedius there. There's a compatibility download there for playing with people buying from gamestop who get a Vic Viper to use. I can only take this to mean that cert has been passed and soon spaceship anime boobs will be bouncing into stores.

    I have this saved on Amazon...can't decide if I should get it for my friend or not. I don't even have a 360.

    GameStop gets the exclusive ship and some DLC apparently? It has a picture of the pillow case, but it doesn't list it...think it still comes with that? Deciding if Vic Viper is worth driving to the store and paying tax...

    I'll be ready to 3P it up whenever it comes out.

    The Pillow case (and other various goodies) is from the Collectors Edition of the game.

    So just how the hell is anyone suppose to by this game without being shun from humanity?

    It's like you have to buy this game wearing nothing but a brown overcoat.

    I will walk in to Gamestop with my work attire, business pants, shoes and polo shirt and purchase the game. If any employee gives me guff about my purchase, I will remind him he works at Gamestop and be on my merry way.

    My Gamestop gave me Deathsmiles CE without batting an eye. When one worker asked what it was, I mearly said "Y'know Ikaruga? Its one of those!" And went on my merry way. I still have it.

    Things to expect when buying this game at Gamestop:

    1. You walk up to the counter and say you want a copy of Otomedius.

    2. The clerk asks you to repeat the name of the game because he's never heard of it. You say the name a little louder, "OTOMEDIUS", people in the store begin to look.

    3. The clerk opens the drawer and pulls out the game. He looks at the cover and then gives you a look of disgust.

    4. You hear the murmurs of the people around you as you pay for the game, then you sheepishly make your way out of the store.

    5. You walk outside the door and are stopped by mall security. It turns out the clerk triggered the silent alarm. You are then escorted to a police car.

    I bought Ar tonelico, Atelier Rorona and Neptunia from this GameStop. They were not surprised at all when I preordered this.

    There are multiple straight up pedo bait games in the 3DS's pipeline in Japan. I don't think any of them have a chance of coming over but you never know.

    I still really wish this game would come out over here. It never will though. It just looks so ridiculous.

    I would feel shame if I weren't an anime. However seeing as I am I must be among my own kind. If I don't purchase anime games it will kill me.

    Also Senran Kagura still might! Just give Aksys or Nisa some time. Now Galgun? That game is never coming out here. That's a game you would have to feel shame purchasing. Otomedius is nothing compared to that.

    Otomedius is downright tame in comparison to some of the new blood.

    This is what happens when the only group that buys your B/C tier anime/rpg games are super virgin otakus who have never talked to an unrelated girl.

    To get back on topic though, this game is helluva fun. Probably my favorite in the genre since Gradius V.

    This is why you go to a Gamestop or similar vendor of video games in a neighbourhood you have no intention of being seen in again.

    I will probably get this because of Gilder.

  • GilderGilder Registered User regular
    At the rate it keeps getting delayed you might never get it because it won't ever come out. I will not be surprised at all if 11/1 ends up turning into 1/24 by the end of next week.

  • RiokennRiokenn Registered User regular
    Don't say that, its the game I've been waiting for to resub for a year of Gold.

  • ReynoldsReynolds Raving Rabbit Registered User regular
    Yeah, I'm still wondering if it will really come out on time. Same thing with Cave Story.

  • GilderGilder Registered User regular
    I don't want to cause a panic, but if gamefaqs is to be believed, and if you're going to trust them on anything then make it an obscure game nobody cares about, then 11/1 is actually the date it's coming out. I'm shocked too. However when I'll get it is still a mystery since Amazon never offered release day shipping due to the delays and I'm stuck with free shipping. So it'll probably take me another week to get it.

    This past Saturday I asked a couple of Gamestop employees when my Otomedius CE is coming in. He checked his little computer and told me "November....question mark."

    I am not a happy camper.

    In any case if this game does come out tomorrow will anyone be up for some 3P action later that evening?

    Amazon is temporarily out of stock on this game now. Mine still has yet to ship, but maybe it's still too early. Now I ordered my copy back in July. If they tell me that I have to wait for another shipment I'm going to be pretty angry at them and will send them an e-mail asking them what the fuck, you had months to make sure to get enough copies.

    Word on 2ch was that the game was recently patched to up the difficulty significantly. Not sure exaclty how that translates into the western release.

  • GilderGilder Registered User regular
    edited November 2011
    Some gamefaqs people said it was more of an "arrange" patch. Like it wasn't any harder or easier, just different. I guess they also changed the sound effects and stuff. I take it with a grain of salt because gamefaqs posters cannot be trusted, and every time I went there for any information on the game's release it made my head hurt. At any rate if that patch isn't up for us day 1 then we probably won't get it for a month or possibly ever.

    Checking out gamestop.com they list the games release date for next Tuesday.
    Checking out bestbuy.com they list the games release date is today with backorder across the board and no store in my area has it in stock.

    Gonna call my local gamestop store to see what the deal is. And you were doing so well Konami.

    EDIT: From Amazon: Usually ships within 1 to 3 months.

    This stopped being funny.

    EDIT2:Electricboogaloo: Called Gamestop, had to spell the game out for him. The guy said it should come in today when they get their shipment in and their computers say today is the release date. Heres hoping.

    GameStop where I ordered it at said they should be getting it in tomorrow. But, maybe not.

  • GilderGilder Registered User regular
    And so the mystery of the release date continues! :rotate:

  • RiokennRiokenn Registered User regular
    Yep, tomorrow or Thursday.

  • GilderGilder Registered User regular
    If people start getting it tomorrow and Amazon is still asking me to wait up to 3 months then that's when I'm going to message them. I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt right now though and not message until people are actually playing the game.

  • RiokennRiokenn Registered User regular
    The Gamestop says: Thursday

  • GilderGilder Registered User regular
    This game is never coming out. If Amazon screws me though I'm considering moving the money from this over to SR3 and just picking the game up in a store. I didn't pre-order so no Vic Viper, but oh well. I'm still waiting though, because there still isn't anybody that has the game, and last night Amazon went from 1-3 months to 5-8 weeks.

  • RiokennRiokenn Registered User regular
    So I didn't know that each character has her own unique level up gauge to increase in power. I would have to go with the busty one for her spreader.

  • GilderGilder Registered User regular
    Oh snap, my order is shipping soon. I guess it really did come out thursday. Thank goodness Amazon seems to be coming through, because I really didn't want to pay money for this game. I'm just using gift card funds, and I don't feel bad buying it that way. Cash though? Maaaaaaan I dunno.

    Yep, someone at NeoGAF owns it. It does exist.

    Well, good morning. Welcome to the new scenario. What should we do today?
  • GilderGilder Registered User regular
    Apparently some people are reporting that they've gotten a free bump to 1 day shipping by Amazon. It's probably a glitch and won't happen to me, but I can dream. Good to know it actually exists though.

    Just received my copy and I'm pretty impressed with the artbook. Most artbooks that come with videogames are trash, but the design, print, and paper quality for this one is really good. Almost as if they'd took the real japanese artbook and compacted it into a dvd-boxed size version.

    Any word on whether this is region-free? My 360S is an NTSC/J model and I hate hooking up the old leafblower model.
