Sunken Treasures Games

Miku Hatsune!

Vocaloid fans rejoice! The newest trial deck for Weiss Schwarz is here and it’s “Project Diva F” featuring Miku with Ren & Rin. We even have some super cute matching sleeves to put the cards in. Personally, this is one of the most (if not THE MOST) exciting set released for Weiss Schwarz for me. I am a huge fan of Vocaloids and am totally psyched to have a card set featuring them. *whoohooo!*

If you haven’t checked out Weiss Schwarz here at the store, now is the time! Stop by on Wednesday night’s from 6pm -9pm for our “WeissFight Card Night” and check out the new cards. I’d love to teach anyone and everyone how to play~ don’t be shy!

If you aren’t familiar with Miku and her music, here are a few videos to get you acquainted: “Tell Your World” and “PoPiPo”. Ironically enough, we actually found the Miku juice drink from the second video while we were in Japan. Enjoy! :D

Bioshock Infinite Available Now!

Finally, Bioshock Infinite is available this week after what felt like an eternity of waiting! We have copies for the Xbox 360 and PS3 for $58.99! Some are calling this an instant “Game of the Year”. NAY we say. ‘Tis “GAME OF THE FOREVERRRRRRRRR!”.

GAME OF THE FOREVERRRRR!

Completed! Kingdom Rush for iOS and Chrome

Kingdom Rush by Ironhide Games is easily one of the most addictive games I have ever played. Not only that, it is the best tower defense game I have ever played. This pleasant surprise of a game has charmed and challenged it’s way into my heart like few other games have in a long while.

The game puts you in the role of the General of the Royal Army, and it’s your sole responsibility to put an end to the uprising of baddies overwhelming the land. In each level you can choose which units you want to place: Mage, Archers, Barracks, and Artillery. In addition to these units, there are “reinforcements” (two soldiers) that you can periodically place anywhere you want, as well as a super ability “Rain of Fire” – a very powerful attack with a slow cool down timer – that you can use when you’re in a pinch!

As you progress in the game you can unlock upgrades for each of the units. Once you beat a level you get “stars” which you can use to increase stats on your units and unlock “heroes” to help lead your troops in battle. The better you do the more stars you get.

Completing each level unlocks Heroic Mode and Iron Challenge which puts your tower defense skillz to the test. In Heroic Mode you have limited resources against 6 waves of baddies. Iron Challenge gives you more freedom with your resources against one very long wave.

In the iOS version you collect “gems” in each level which you use at a shop to buy items like a freezing staff that stops all monsters and gives you time to beat them down, or extra gold allowing you to beef your units up earlier in the game. Using gems is essential for beating these extra levels. In the Chrome version you don’t collect gems or have access to the store but the units cost less making it a bit easier to level up your units. While the iOS and Chrome versions are the same, these differences really change my strategies with each level.

Kingdom Rush starts out nice but gets pretty challenging as your progress. Each time I failed I felt like I just barely lost so I wanted to keep trying. Never was the game rage inducing. I just wanted to keep playing and keep playing.


Clicky clicky!

The Chrome version of the game is free and can be played here. The iOS version is $2.99 which I feel is a very awesome price tag for a game that I clocked easily 30-40+ hours on. If you are a fan of tower defense games, or if you are new to the genre, I highly recommend this game! It was worth every penny and every minute that I spent on it.

This Just In! ~ Mid January GET!

Today’s edition of “This Just In” features a few random shipments that we received today, full of goodies for the masses! We love days like today when our shipments all hit at once. Makes for a productive afternoon. ^_^

STUFF!

As huge fans of Star Trek (both TOS and TNG), we were pretty stoked about the Star Trek Deckbuilding Game. Deckbuilding games like our Resident Evil one, and the incredible Tanto Cuore have quickly become some of our favorite types of games. We also restocked/received some excellent new Weiss Schwarz sets like Macross Frontier, Fate/Zero, the brand new Milky Holmes 2 and more Sword Art Online Trial Decks.

GAMES!

Restocked our Yakuza: Dead Souls and Black Ops II! Yakuza: Dead Souls was one of our favorite games from last year, so we’re always happy to keep it in stock and spread the word! ♥

SLEEVES!

We added 20 different new sleeves to our ever growing “Wall-O-Sleeves” including sleeves for the various guilds in the upcoming Magic the Gathering set: Gatecrash (which we’ll be featuring in a big Gatecrash post in the near future). As far as imported sleeves go, we received sleeves for the following: Milky Holmes, Madoka, Shining Blade, Nanoha, Melty Blood, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, K-ON!, and Accel World.

SLIMES!

Some legit actual metal, heavy duty Metal Slimes from Dragon Quest. Purchase one before they flee! (HUR HUR HURR…)

PADS!

Some Sword Art Online mouse pads – we also have some SAO coaster on the way! I haven’t checked out this show yet, but there’s plenty of buzz about it at our store. It’s written by the same fellow who did Accel World, so that’s a plus in my book!

Until next time, see you at the store!

This Just In! ~ A December to Remember: SO MANY GOODIES!

First and foremost, thanks to everyone who made our Thanksgiving week sale such a huge success! It was crazy busy. :D December is finally here, and with it comes a few new additions to the store. For this edition of “This Just In”, there are figures abound, along with a handful of other random surprises!

Sound Banks!

We recently acquired some nifty Mario Sound Banks. There’s several different blocks and they make different Mario sounds every time you insert a coin. Excellent stocking stuffers!

A freshly stocked figure case.

Our collectible figure case is absolutely filled to the MAX. Check some of the figures we recently picked up, below!

Robotics;Notes / Katana Gatari / Accel World

Robotics;Notes is one of the most recent animes to enter the world of Weiss Schwarz. We also snagged a few more boxes of Accel World, and the excellent Katana Gatari.

Come learn how to play!

Sarah and I recently set up a new “demo” table up front, so we can teach people how to play Magic, Weiss Schwarz, or whatever really! If you ever want to play a game with us, and we’re not too busy, we have a cozy little spot now!

Anime, filled to the brim.

Last week we had a huge variety of new animes show up at the store. If you’re looking for a new series to watch, be sure to check them out.

New sleeveseseseses!

Our ever growing selection of imported card sleeves saw a few new additions this week. Robotics;Notes (perfect for your R;N Weiss Schwarz decks!) and Atelier Totori/Meruru sleeves are available now!

Karen Ararararararagi Figma

Instead of taking pictures of figures in the boxes this week, I thought I’d just post some professional ones ~ here’s the Karen Araragi Figma from Bake/Nisemonogatari.

KOS-MOS, of Xenosaga fame.

I never made it all the way to Xenosaga Episode III, so this KOS-MOS related Figma kind of fascinates me. Makes me want to pick those games up again.

Persona 2's Lisa

For the Persona fan in your life, we have this lovely Lisa figure from Persona 2!

The cutest Rorona, EVER.

The Atelier series has produced many an adorable figure, but maybe none as cute as this particular Rorona one. A favorite of Sarah’s!

IIIIMAAAAAAAAGIIIIIIIIIIIIINE!

Last but not least is this wonderful Nendoroid of Himari from Mawaru Penguindrum. Such an amazing series!

Well that just about covers everything from the last week or so. Hope everyone is having a safe and fun holiday shopping season so far, and we’ll see you around!

Sunken Treasures Games ~ Now with Miku!

Today, Sunken Treasures Games had a very special guest, courtesy of “Project Diva f” for the Playstation Vita – Hatsune Miku!

初音ミクだよ!

Through the magic of Project Diva f for the Playstation Vita, famed idol Miku was able to take a stroll through our store today. ^^;

初音ミクだよ!

That’s the same face we make when we see our Marvel vs. Capcom 2 machine, as well.

初音ミクだよ!

Surveying our wares.

初音ミクだよ!

SARAHBOT-9000 (admittedly, a big fan of Miku) snags a *nyan* photo with the famous idol!

Incidentally the game itself is amazing, and if you’re a vocaloid fan with a Vita it’s definitely worth the price to import. Now just another 5 months until the Project Diva Weiss Schwarz set… *drool*
