Well I've been playing Xenosaga 1 this week, and I feel sorry that EU missed it but... How do you play only Episode 2? I thought the story wouldn't make anything close to sense if you only played Episode 2.

Well, it did come in a nice box with a DVD with all the cutscenes from Episode One. Of course it wasn't very useful when trying to figure out what the heck was going on, but it's the thought that counts, I guess. The people who did finish the game were never able to find out how the trilogy ends.  Xenosaga 2 still haunts bargain bins today.

Oh and we didn't get Taless of Destiny, Tales of the Abyss or even Tales of Legendia, right? Guess which Tales game we did get. That's right, Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology.

We also missed out on the first Katamary Damacy.

I'm pretty sure Namco Bandai hates us.

Luckily, I've got my trusty old (probably immortal despite being a very old model) American PS2 <3

BTW Tactics Ogre was released on the PSP and or special edition was rather nice, so I guess that one doesn´t count anymore.

It's a shame you had to wait so long for Chrono Trigger. Tactics Ogre on the other hand you were better off for, instead of a flawed gem you got what may be one of the pinnacles of SRPGs.

Anyways, guys! The game was just announced, so follow Ivalice Alliance's stance: freak out if it's not shown by E3, rather than not announced immediately alongside the European release. When the hell are they getting DQVI on that note?

This game needs more HD.

Here`s a few 720p screencaps that I took myself:


Good news on the announcement. Played through the game twice in Japanese and wouldn`t mind playing through it for the third time in a language that I can actually understand.

I heard about that. And while I hate to be the one bringing out counterpoints in this specific case, Nintendo of America also owns www.nintendo.co.uk.

Xenoblade -the Secret File- MONADO Archives

"This is a story that was printed in the special book Monad: The Secret Files, that was released several months after the release of the game. It is neither prequel nor epilogue, but a story set between the events of the game."

I'd still give it more time, but at least it's not like fretting immediately after announcement.

I remember that Nintendo America last year registered The Last Story.Wonder what happened since then.

I was searching for an unboxing video of The Last Story on YouTube just to see how pretty the box art and artbook are, and then this happens.

Good grief.  I could only hope it gave him courage or whatever....

...or killed him, for being stupid.
