The "L" button gets used A LOT! I cramp up quickly. I'm playing it on a 3DS XL.

still not sure if i should get liberation maiden. i just know the controls will hurt.

how often do you have to press the L-button? it's for strafing right? do i have to press it for switching between strafe mode and mormal mode or do i have to hold it if i want to strafe?

Crimson Shroud (Must buy at any price) - This has the deepest & darkest story out of all the Guild titles, the battle system is fleshed out & very unique, and it's probably about the longest title out of the series (especially if you do New Game +). The only reason not to get it would be if you're not a fan of RPGs, otherwise grab it. A steal at the sale price.

Liberation Maiden (Must buy at sale price) - Fast & frentic action, lots of gameplay to be had (a single run is pretty short, but the three difficulty settings & 30 achievements which unlock gallery goodies will keep you playing), and crazy fun Japanese style. The only negative would be the controls I guess, but even as a lefty I had no issues with them. Worth a try at the sale price.

Attack of the Friday Monsters! a Tokyo Tale (Must buy at sale price) - This game may not be for everyone, since it's not really much of a "game" in the traditional sense, but it's one of the most charming adventures on 3DS, the environments are absolutely gorgeous, and anyone who was ever a kid can relate to the adventures Sohta goes through. As someone who is interested in Japanese culture, it's certainly one of my favorites. Worth a try at the sale price.

Bugs VS Tanks (Must buy at sale price) - With 40 single player missions & 15 Co-Op missions it rivals CS in length, the amount of unlockables is insane, there are a variety of different locales (grassland, woodland, spider-web, treetop, desert, marsh, old base, & arena shaped woodland), and there's a cool gallery that keeps track of all the tanks you've collected, bugs you've fought, & medals (achievements) you've earned, complete with models. As some have said, the combat does get a bit repetitive, but there's enough variety in mission types & locale to overlook this, especially at the sale price. Worth a try at the sale price.

Haven't played enough of The Starship Damrey to critique it yet, and don't have Aero Porter.

Crimson Shroud is far and away the best of the Guild game thus far (with the possible exception of the recently released Weapon Shop de Omasse, a game I have yet to try).

I got Liberation Maiden & Attack of the Friday Monsters in the last sale, I may get Crimson Shroud tho but probably not.

Please get it! At that price it's a steal and it's one of the last games by the guy who designed it!

I'm not a big RPG fan and the reason I may get it is because everyone seems to rave about it.

It is alright, lots of reading and dice rolling. I never felt like I had real control over the characters or story. I only played it for about a hour and with all the reading, dice rolling, and slow combat, I didn't get hooked but at that price I would totally recommended getting it. It is at least worth it to try

I finished Crimson Shroud last weekend, I thought it was excellent, but there is lots of reading and the story is certainly linear. I really enjoyed Liberation Maiden, a fast, fun shoot-everything with great 3DS graphics. Now I'm playing Starship Damrey, and it's slow and very unique, but I'm enjoying it so far.

Never really had to use it, mainly circle pad and stylus.

An unfortunate note about Bugs VS Tanks:

There are four types of bugs & four tanks that can only be obtained through the Co-Op, so they're impossible to obtain solo.

You can tackle the Co-Op missions solo, but the bug strength is so inflated (especially the new species), that even the "Tiger II" tank (which has maxed out power & defense) gets trashed quickly. You may be able to complete the first 3 by yourself (I did, which allowed me one of the Co-Op tanks, and the addition of one of the Co-Op only bugs), but mission four pits you up against a new mantis that's impossible to beat solo.

They desperately needed online for this mode, especially if it's required to collect all the tanks & gallery bug info.

Picked up Starship Damrey, already had Crimson Shroud and Attack of the Friday Monsters from previous sales whilst bought Liberation Maiden at release (hope for the sequel, even if it is a VN).

Would you say Bugs vs Tanks is worth the Sale Price? Reviews have ranged from Ok to Not Good. Tempted, but also trying to save money this month (although it is just £2.69).

@FX102A, I'd say Bugs VS Tanks is worth it at the sale price.

The gameplay is simple & most of the bugs are just stronger versions of what came before, so it never really evolves much, but it's fun enough, and you'll definitely get your money's worth content wise.

There's 40 single player missions, a bunch of historical tanks to collect, a gallery where you can keep track of all the bug types you've killed & the medals (achievements) you've earned, and 15 Co-Op missions (though as mentioned in my previous post, are torture if you try them solo).

Good summary. I had Crimson Shroud and Bugs vs. Tanks- picked up Liberation Maiden and Attack of the Friday night monsters on sale.

Bugs v. Tanks didn't review well, but I thought it was pretty good- as you mention, lots of content. You just have to keep an open mind.
