The Last Story, Valkyria Chronicles 3 top Japan's sales

Those games that we were having trouble finding in Tokyo just happen to be the two top selling games for the week. The new Media Create sales numbers say that Wii RPG The Last Story is the best seller, with almost 115,000 units sold, including those packaged in that yummy new Wii bundle. Sega brings back their SRPG franchise for a second run with Valkyria Chronicles 3, and it ranked right behind The Last Story with 102,779 units sold.

And yes, if you're wondering from the other day, I did get my copy. It's a lot like the last game, but with a cooler story and harder battles. I'm pretty pleased so far.

You know what came in at number 3? PSP game My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute, with 88,000 units sold. I...uh looked at it. Here in Japan it is known as Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai Portable, and it's pretty popular. It uses a new tech called Live2D to animate the character portraits that are typical of these games. They now look like full on animations. It's pretty cool to see live.

Are we really calling followers "fappers" on these quick posts? I knew I loved Dtoid.

Someone is trying to log into my Dtoid account. I keep getting emails notifying me of bad password attempts. What?

If you spend 10 minutes trying to write a Quickpost...can it really be called Quickpost?

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

My son just washed my Majora's Mask NEW 3DS because the screen was dirty. Bahahaha *cries uncontrollably*

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?

Playing through Skies of Arcadia Legends right now. Bringing this to Steam or current gen in HD seems like a no-brainer. Make it so, Sega!
