You mean the one in Gapra Whitewood?
347  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Microsoft paid Namco-Bandai to not release PS3 version of ToV outside of Japan on: June 20, 2011, 06:14:28 PM
Microsoft seems to have done this a few times, what with Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon. The difference there is that Mistwalker didn't port the games to the PS3. Eternal Sonata is a little odd in this case, but it was probably a trial run for the Tales of Vesperia engine or something in the first place.

One thing that I just remembered though, is that Namco Bandai basically tricked Microsoft into funding Tales of Vesperia for them, and they did the same thing with Tales of Graces. Both were supposed to be exclusives, and they used the money recieved from the games to port them to PS3 and make even more money with a minimum of effort. Tales of Graces probably took quite a bit more effort to port, but you get the idea.

Wait, if Metal Gear Solid and Chrono Cross have the same disc swapping mechanic, what's the problem? Metal Gear Solid is on the PSN.

Really? In Toronto PSP games seem to be doing pretty well. In a Futureshop (Best Buy equivalent) that I frequent, the PSP section is actually bigger than the DS and 3DS sections combined.

Too much text isn't even a good excuse now since XSEED is translating the Trails in the Sky trilogy. They have an absolutely tiny localization team and they've managed to translate one of the most text heavy jRPGs that has come out in Japan.

I just realized. The reason Nintendo might be using is that the previous Wii RPGs didn't sell very well. Of course there were, what, two? Tales of Symphonia 2 which wasn't really that good, and Arc Rise Fantasia which had a rather bad translation and almost no advertising whatsoever. Of course, Namco Bandai seems to have the same opinion regarding the sales of Tales of Symphonia 2, so it may have rubbed off.

I thought Ni no Kumi was completely confirmed? Isn't it the Level-5 Studio Ghibli game?

I just watched an interview between GameTrailers and Reggie Fils-Aime (did I spell that right?) and he flat-out said that there are a bunch of Wii and DS games that they haven't even mentioned yet, that will show up later.

There is no reason whatsoever not to release Xenoblade in North America. It's already being translated for Europe! Nintendo seems to have something against Monolith Soft, as their last game in North America seems to have been Baten Kaitos Origins.
355  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: Atelier Iris Trilogy for sale. on: May 27, 2011, 10:36:24 AM
All three.
356  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: Atelier Iris Trilogy for sale. on: May 26, 2011, 10:50:46 AM
This game has been sold.
357  The Rest / The Bazaar / Atelier Iris Trilogy for sale. on: May 25, 2011, 07:52:14 PM
As topic states, I am selling the Atelier Iris Trilogy for the PS2. Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana, Atelier Iris 2: The Azoth of Destiny and Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm. All three are in good condition with manuals and everything, but the cases are slightly scuffed. Willing to trade for ps1 or ps2 rpgs, or negotiate price. PM if interested.
358  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Best (and Worst) Female Protagonists on: May 03, 2011, 03:41:58 PM
One thing that just occured to me about Shion is that, even though it doesn't quite justify her character, she had no meaningful relationships in her past, with the exception of her parents who died when she was little, and her boyfriend who's name escapes me right now, who also died horribly. She may have been designed with an inability to have a meaningful relationship.

Pretty much every female character from the Digital Devil Saga games is pretty good as well.

I go to a rather conservative university, so the edited cover could help me avoid some awkward situations. Other than that, it's not really a major problem that they're using this new cover. The original PS3 cover at least, looks like its from a hentai or something, which could raise some questions.
360  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Growlanser IV hits the PSP on: April 27, 2011, 09:30:44 PM
Exactly what problem do JRPG companies have with letting other companies translate their games? Do they not like making money, or something? I heard other companies have tried to license Tales games, for instance, but Namco-Bandai adamantly refuses.

Some of these companies might be like that because they have a North American branch. Namco was just being nasty, but Atlus might have other reasons for not localizing the Growlanser PSP games.
