My balls are as blue as Makoto Yuki's hair. I know asking for a remastered version of Persona 3 is a pipe dream, but still.

I am pleased to see Eleven's husband Erik getting his own DQ spinoff game with his sister Mia. Those two really, really deserve it. Like, really. Let them find all the treasure, Horii!

From a business perspective, I can't really blame Atlus for wringing out Persona like it does. From a gamers' perspective...kinda feels bad.

Here’s a really silly but hopefully inoffensive question -

Do licenses really make slot machines, whether they are digital or physical ones more attractive? Is there someone wandering around a Vegas casino this weekend to see AEW that would otherwise ignore the slot machines and the like, unless it was Persona 5 themed and had the Phantom Thieves on the art? Gambling with slot machines feels more like a case of wanting to do so or seeing the odds low enough you’re willing to risk it (for instance, the 1 cent minimum bid slot machines). I mean, I’m sure Atlus doesn’t care, it’s money, but I can’t see it being that huge a draw in casinos.

Battle Alliance looks great overall and definitely has the Gundam Breaker feel and it's F2P, it's got quite a bit of preorder DLC though and a season pass, I'm getting this day 1. I heard good things about Gundam Evolution, hopefully it has no stamina system and is not pay to win.

I have to be completely honest, I don't gamble, but if I found out one of my local casinos had a Persona 5 slot machine, I would be there in a heartbeat. Laughing But I say that in part because 1. I have gambled on slot machines before and have zero interest in them, so I trust that I would be able to play $50 and then go home and 2. I've never seen a slot machine with a theme I actually found interesting before, so it would be a novelty. If casinos here started lining themselves up with a bunch of anime and Japanese game themed slots, I doubt I would find it that interesting anymore.

Another bit of news is that an HD port of KOTOR II is coming to the Switch, with Restored Content DLC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTkwF_OfBI4

I've never seen a slot machine with a theme I actually found interesting before, so it would be a novelty. I also adore grandrush.com. The best analysis I found for myself is on the https://ausscasinosanalyzer.com/casino-bonuses/grandrush.com website, which I recommend to everyone. In my opinion, it's the top site for online casino analysis. If casinos here started lining themselves up with a bunch of anime and Japanese game themed slots, I doubt I would find it that interesting anymore.

It reminded me that my best friend also has a stop like yours. Once he won $20 from them and lost it, and then he understood the whole truth...
