Am I the only one still waiting for his copy to arrive? I sit by the window every morning, watching the postman stroll by my house empty handed. It hurts ;_;
i have bad news for you anon if you are waiting for the game for longer than a week it means your postman has stolen your copy. I had the same trouble in my area he just wasn't counting on me doing anything
I did choose the slowest shipping option that said up to 14 days. 14 days since the shipping email are over today though. It did say it could take up to 4 weeks "in rare cases". Just kill me.
if you ordered it from play asia it can take up to 6 weeks for air economy. At about the 4 week mark you should get in contact with play asia and the postal service. Sometime the post office just forgets to deliver your items
had a game from play asia come in 4 months after i ordered it
Its times like these that make me happy to live in england, free delivery generally means next day delivery unless its from overseas, in which case it arrives within a day of entering the country, sometimes getting in can take 2-3 days though.
I just got the digital version.
Just started playing it.
Does money (owner and/or girl) transfer after a holiday?
I'm teamed up with Honoka now, but I want to save the girl's money for the next holiday when teaming up with another girl (to gift her the swimsuits).
I got a PS4 for this game.
Actually enjoying Driveclub, Last of Us, Uncharted and Until Dawn as well, so far.
The list of exclusives is a joke, but with these games and DOAX3 I have no regrets.
Ok nice. Owner money is the only problem to worry about then (but I know of the save scumming trick).
I just found a swimsuit in Owner store called "Navy Bloomers (Marie)".
Is this Marie exclusive, then, or does it mean that it's just unlocked because I played Marie?
I want Nyotengu in that outfit, but I don't want to buy it now to find out it is indeed Marie exclusive.
All the girls can have a version for them unlocked with their name on it. If you buy that and give it to Nyo it will have Marie's name. I'm not sure when it actually appears in the store but if you're raising satisfaction then it should appear in the later days of the vacation with Nyo.
All right, thanks.
I have a feeling this is gonna be a long ride. I actually really enjoy the volleyball though.
Of course, there could've been so much more to this game, but I'm fine with it (considering it's mostly for fappin).
Only thing I actually dislike is the voices, would've really wanted the English voices.
I think people expected too much from it. It's pretty much the same game it has always been but that's okay for me at least. Can't say I agree about the voices though. The repeated lines give me nostalgia for the first game too.
If you're planning on trying to get S+ for each girl then you shouldn't need to savescum unless you're going for every lewd swimsuit. Doing missions will build up your owner cash and your girl will make her own money quite easily from volleyball which she can spend on herself and other girls. S+ will give you more money after your vacation ends as well.
I'm going for a bunch of swimsuits for the girls I like...which is everyone except Honoka and Kokoro. I'll need a lot of Zack dollars eventually.
But first I'll just focus on getting S+ rank on everyone, because why not.
If some of the swimsuits you like are in a girls collection then try not to spend owner cash on them unless they're cheap. You can pretty much hit the money cap with a girl in 3-4 volleyball games so she can buy multiple swimsuits quite quickly and rewrap them if needed. The girls just need to like you back so it's easy to focus on your current partner.
If the swimsuits are from the owner shop then they might dislike them due to them being lewd or childish so they have to like you a lot. Just don't let your money fall down too low with rewrapping or you'll get stuck for a while.
No unfortunately. So sometimes you have to focus on a girl throughout your vacation rather than half as nothing might come out of it. I've gotten S+ on each vacation but hardly any swimsuits given out so I'll probably replay everyone multiple times just to get them in certain things.
I love when that happens but please don't bully Kokoro.
When an opponent does a spike in volleyball, do I HAVE to counter it with X (which bumps it back their way, and they spoke again, so I X again, until either one of us ducks up), or does O/ work as well?
I've tried it a few times but failed, so I don't know.
I never bother with blocking since the perspective/positioning/timing is fucked, I just estimate where the shot will probably go and press O when it feels right. Works 80% of the time.
You should never really use X for a receive unless your opponent gets knocked down. You might not be standing in the right position when pressing O or the spike was too strong. I'm not sure how spike strength actually works as the ball gets passed me every so often.
>Losing the drive to grind
>More screenshot and fap potential is only a level away
How the fuck am I ever going to get to level 80? I need DLC characters or something.
Also fuck, I only just realized the PS4 has a PNG option for screenshots last night and I'm already 750 deep in DOAX3
I feel your pain anon. It got shipped the 23rd, only 2 days ago did the shipping company actually update their status that they get the physical copy.
And now it's stuck on that, basically waiting for a spot.
someone kill me next time i don't use different shipping
Oh, that's super shitty. Thanks for letting me know, though.
Pool Hopping is the only activity I can 100% beat Hard bots. I pretty much hold a button down at all times UNLESS I'm doing a short hop. I really wish it was another activity that gave 2 hearts like rock climbing because I would never do anything else.
As someone who has progressed really far, I can't stress strongly enough that the only thing you should focus your grinding on is Owner experience. Everything else comes with time, Owner Levels are never.
Thought as much.
What's the best way to focus on owner experience anyway?
I S+ ranked the first/tutorial vacation, now going for a replay with Marie to gift Nyotengu the swimsuits I prepared on the first vacation.
Sorry Hitomi, I'm not partnering with you.
Skip casino missions that aren't 'play game 1 time.'
Skip any relaxing mission.
Skip perfect victories unless its against low levels or its an activity you're comfortable playing.
Keep a cheap swimsuit she likes on hand even if she already owns it (This one is the best mission in the game)
Also keep her favorite instrument on hand
Basically, do as many missions as possible while also keeping up the girl's satisfaction since the ending bonus isn't something you want to skip out on (even though mission give significantly more XP throughout a vacation).
Screw you, dude. I've been working on gifting her everything and it took me so god damn long to get her to accept Honker's invite. I was legitimately getting frustrated at how many times I had to ask her with 2/3 closeness.
Called out play asia yesterday cause my gf and i paid extra for 2-4 day shipping
>game said it was in stock
>ask for a refund of shipping costs
Sure give us your order number and we can work something out
>give order number
Haven't heard shit in 15 hours
Guess i deserve it
>pay for fastest shipping with pre-order back in November
>ships out immediately
>gets to local Fedex facility in less than 24 hours
>takes 6 days to get to my house due to various issues with requiring a signature for delivery even though it was electronically signed for
>It's 100% Fedex's fault
>They wouldn't even let me pick it up at the place when I was available since I had to opt for that ahead of time
Owner money aside, I don't think I'll have much a problem with grinding in this game. I'm not planning to bumrush it in a week or two, just gonna work toward it over time.
I'm not a big fan of Hitomi, and want Nyo/Miji/Helena/Ayane to get alllll the swimsuits first.
Win with a Blackjack is the the biggest 'Fuck You' in this game. I sat there and watched the 2 bots alternating blackjacks for 7 or 8 hands, and then immediately after they both start with 10/10 splits and get 3 blackjacks between them. And then the dealer and its insurance garbage was popping up every other hand because THEY were getting Aces every god damn time as well.
Took me almost an hour to get it and I vowed to never spend more than 30 seconds on casino missions again. You only get like 50-100xp anyway.
I'm still trying to figure out if they kept the old stats from the earlier games, or at least if different girls have different timings and/or can handle things better or worse than others.
For instance, playing as Momiji it seemed that she couldn't receive SHIT, even when positioned directly where the ball was spiked (sometimes not even power spiked), and spiking anywhere other than at the net would cause her to fuck up.
Meanwhile, Hitomi was comfortably receiving spikes from almost everyone and Kasumi was spiking accurately from mid court every time.
I got mine within 4 days with no issues. I'm guessing it just depends on where you live.
Makes sense actually. I live in a very populated city so I never worry about delayed deliveries.
So is this game just full of fat titties and no asses? Not that I mind. I'm a tit guy.
Honoka is best of both worlds
I'm in the same boat OP. Mainland yuro here (Germoney), ordered from Rice Digital (UK) because that way I don't have to pay fucking import fees (20% of order TOTAL, that includes shipping. Have fun paying that for 60€ Game + 20€ UPS shipping). Turns out nothing is free in this world though as I'm still waiting on the game. You'd think the britbongs don't have to ship this game very far but either their postal services are on strike or britbongs are really the lazy fuckers they seem to be on the internet. Shit was apparently shipped last thursday, march 31st... I need my polygon tiddies GODDAMNIT!!
Same with you, m8.
I'm a dutchfag and on their site it said it can take 2 to 5 days to arrive. Still nothing though.
Where you live, anon?
I'm also still waiting for my copy that i ordered from RiceDigital.
When will our suffering end?
Just platinumed my
Vitacopy of the game. Where's the best place to sell it?
