This is the time of year everyone tends to go on a spending spree, buying loads of games as gifts to others (or themselves). And while nothing beats the winter blues like curling up by the fire with a hot cup of handheld gaming, I’m frugal by nature.
So, in order to keep your consoles brimming with new adventures, here are some great strategies to get the most out of your gaming budget – that is, in addition to always checking this site for the Deals of the Week… [...]

We’re also trying something new with the format this week and I’ve broken the show into two halves: Side A with the news and random chit-chat, and Side B with just the main discussion topic. Let us know if you like it this way, or prefer the regular way.

This week sees the dramatic debut of Dragon’s Crown in the deals list at $30 – a solid price, and one that probably won’t drop again for another few months. We also see the reappearance of Paper Mario: Sticker Star at $20, while Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy continues its steady downward spiral, coming in at $18 with the sequel still far down the line.
Also from Square-Enix, Final Fantasy 5 has dropped down to $11 on the App Store, replacing their previous deal on Final Fantasy III. I still think Square charges too much for their mobile games, but FFV is one of the best classic JRPGs: a good story, classic gameplay, and a great job system kept me interested when I first played this on GBA.
Though not a deal yet, Amazon has recently added the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL to their store (previously, it was only available through 3rd party vendors). So we might start seeing some sales on the consoles in the near future. I’ll keep an eye out! [...]

I started up Rune Factory 4 on 3DS this week and decided to play through it as a female character. This is something I do quite often, but for the first time I actually got weirded out by it. In fact, after a few hours I had to restart the whole thing to play as a boy.
There are a couple of possible reasons for this: [...]

It’s not exactly a new game, but I think a lot of fans will be hyped to hear that Person 3 is getting a fully animated movie in Japan which will probably be available as a fansub two hours after its release there.
The series has always been deep in plot and character development, but has traditionally taken over 100 hours to get the full experience. Hopefully, the movie can deliver that in 90 minutes. The animation looks straight out of the games and the voices sound spot on (I assume they’re the same voice actors as the game too).
If you like your storylines with a bit more gameplay, check out TellTale Games’ The Wolf Among Us, which has all the same art, character interaction and choices as their last hit, The Walking Dead. But instead of zombies you’ve got fairy tale creatures and personages to contend with in a surprisingly serious tone.
