There's also Asian versions of games that didn't get an HD release in NA if you're interested in those.

E.g. Siren New Translation, Okami HD,  Wipeout Fury HD

Okami HD got a NA release.  Besides, there's a lot of talking in that game, this is supposed to be the "import friendly" thread.

Which is why I have a hard time making recommendations.  Most of the games I import are text-heavy RPGs and VNs...

Loses?  But...
She ends up with Sasayan in the end, and I think they're a much better match

Since I changed my avatar I think I'm legally required to choose Kongou...

I'm trying to remember if that was a joke or not...

That's a very good point, Dice.  Poor living habits don't just make you suddenly drop dead at 55.  It tends to be a long and drawn-out process.  And no matter how much you might think, "I don't care if I die at 55" now, when you're actually 55 I seriously doubt you're going to end it all just because you have high blood pressure and diabetes.  Especially if you have a family.  No, instead you're going to live with it.  And it's going to suck.

On the flip side of the coin, I know a guy who's over 75 and still incredibly healthy and energetic.  He goes mountain climbing regularly.  I can only hope to be doing so well when I'm that age, but it seems like something worth shooting for...

Plus, it was posted too early to be AFD, ne? 

Not in Japan it wasn't.

Not that I think this is a AFD thing.  They had announced a while ago that this restructuring was going into effect on April 1.

Honestly, I'm a bit surprised that NISA is the one to pick it up.  But hey, good for them.

Why can't Squeenix be like smaller publishers that are all like: hey, we're making this game and we're almost done. It'll be out in three months. Here's some screenshots and a trailer of two. Thanks for listening!

Oh, yeah, wait. It's because they pour millions and millions and millions into their projects. If they don't start shoving it in our faces now, we won't start believing this is something amazing we should be looking forward to for years. If we don't believe, we won't pre-order and if we don't pre-order, there won't be x miljoen sold the first month and the company will enter financial crisis mode and start pooping out unneeded sequels.

S-E is particularly weird about this.  There are other "triple A" publishers who don't seem to have this problem so much...

I remember there was an interview after Type-0 came out where they admitted they didn't really start working on it until two years after the first trailer.  It was just a vague concept up until that point.  It's not really clear what the situation with XV was when it was first announced, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was similar...

It seems pretty clear to me that April 30th is the release date for the standard physical edition, which was a relatively recent addition  (last I checked the limited edition was the only physical version, but I guess that changed).  They said a while back that March 31st was the release date for the download version and the limited edition.

I don't know whether or not you can get a download code now if you order the standard physical edition, but you certainly can get the download-only version.

Sure, sure, it's all just the whining of Squaresoft fanboys.

"For example, in the past, when we developed console games with a worldwide premise, we lost our focus, and not only did they end up being games that weren’t for the Japanese, but they ended up being incomplete titles that weren't even fit for a global audience."

"For the new games we'll be developing from this point on, while this may sound a bit extreme, we’ve been talking about making them as heavy JRPGs. I believe that way, we can better focus on our target, which will also bring better results."

-Yosuke Matsuda, president of Square Enix

He's such a fanboy.

Square Enix being Square Enix isn't working.  Of course they're going to look in new directions.  Why are you trying to make that sound unreasonable?

I'm with Agent D on not understanding why this got its own topic but since everyone seems to be posting here anyway:


Has S-E actually managed to pull their head out of their ass?

Dear Japan,

Stop making everything a fucking card game.

OK, in all seriousness this just sounds like a way of restricting how many units people bring into multiplayer.  The 'card' metaphor is completely irrelevant...I think.  I mean, they talk about a 'deck' but that's just your total unit supply...you aren't randomly drawing cards from it...I think...

Iris, Iris, Iris.  You guys can't shut up about Iris ;)

I enjoyed Iris well enough for what it was but I felt like it had a bit of an identity crisis.  I actually liked the game more when it was about Klein trying to save Lita's life.  Then towards the end of the game there was this convoluted twist and it just so happened that the thing they had to do to save Lita's life would also save the world or something.  I mean, what?  I'm not inherently against save-the-world plots but in this case it felt completely tacked-on.  Like they couldn't decided if the game was supposed to be an epic adventure or something more character focused.  Saving your girl's life seemed like enough of a goal to me...I'd like to see more games with a premise like that.  It seems like it's either got to be epic world-saving adventurers or just puttering around doing very little...

Going back to gameplay changes, my favorite of the PS3 Atelier games is probably Meruru.  Not for its characters or story which are honestly pretty forgettable but for the gameplay.  City development was a third tier added to the usual adventuring and alchemy mix and it complemented them perfectly.  It made the alchemy goals feel more meaningful to me since you would make things they needed for development, which in turn unlocked new areas, which let you gather new materials and explore new recipes, etc. etc.  It felt perfectly balanced to me and was addictive as heck.  I kind of wish Gust had continued exploring that direction more because it felt like one of the most significant additions to the franchise to me.
