I still, to this day, have never found it in a store.

It's the kind of game you need to pre-order if you want it from retail.

I personally didn't like it. The ship battles were way to slow. Ruined everything else for me.

Yeah, MangaGamer also has a couple non-adult releases, if you guys haven't checked them out already. Both are high profile: 07th Expansion's Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and Overdrive's Kira Kira (All-Ages version).

Kira Kira features some outstanding character writing, IMO.

I'm not a big fan of MangaGamer. I'm glad they're doing what they're doing, but they're a bit overpriced and their translations aren't always the best. Especially considering they're download only (which also puts me off). Kira Kira is very good and Higurashi is pretty good too. The rest of their games are the usual crap though. Except for Da Capo and at least they did Shuffle! (which is still a bit meh really).

Putting aside amateur translations why doesn't any company at leas try and get rights to the good stuff? Fate/Stay Night, Chaos;Head (though with JAST partnering Nitro+ things are looking good.), Kara no Shoujo, Air, Kanon, Clannad, Little Busters!, ef- a fairy tale of the two, Eden*, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, etc etc. I could go on and on. Though mind you, most of them HAVE had amateur patches done, so not all hope is lost.

Maybe it's because you went in with low expectations, Neal?

I think that's why I liked it.

...and it has a katamari so it wins.

Haha! I didn't think about that as I watched it, but you're so right! I <3 Katamari.

I was sad when KID went under in '06 (though Cyberfront bought their IPs),  Hirameki went belly up in '08...

KID closing down as bad enough, but Hirameki was the biggest blow. They actually localised some good stuff. Not just the sex-romps most other VN translation companies do.

Cant wait to play Ocarina of Time on the 3DS!!!

Yes sir, indeed.

The downside being that I wasn't going to buy a 3DS at launch because it's probably going to be expensive and replaced by a better model in 1-2 years. Now I probably will. Assuming it is going to be available at launch.

Infinite Undiscovery.

Not what I wanna hear. >.< Just bought a copy the other day. Haven't played it yet. Admittedly I only bought it because it was ridiculously cheap... and because it looked pretty.

I always liked Spirit Temple myself. Not really sure why. Except the boss battle was cool.

I liked Shadow too, but it had it's tricky moments. By that I mean when the slippery Hover Boots ran you off an edge.
819  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best RPG of the decade on: August 05, 2010, 09:19:08 AM
It's not an RPG, but X-Blades is the first springing to mind for me.... man that was awful.
820  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Water stages in games on: August 05, 2010, 02:43:29 AM
I never got the big deal about Water Temple. Yeah, it can be a little confusing, but I don't think it's really particularly challenging.
821  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: August 05, 2010, 02:32:10 AM
NO IT ISN'T HARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHH.

I jest. Except for Tales of Hearts, that is.
822  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: August 04, 2010, 09:29:56 PM
Yes, that is true. :D

I don't even have Facebook.
823  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: August 04, 2010, 07:34:52 PM
Tales fans are douchebags.

I resent that. :)
824  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: So... Recettear. Anyone else try out the demo? on: August 04, 2010, 01:25:43 AM
It would make me feel guilty. But I'm easy that way. :P

Someone here has to have a red Star Trek shirt.  Put that person together with Thoren in the yellow suit and me in my blue longsleeve bike jersey w/ black tights (page 26) and it'll be a beautiful geek bonanza photo op!

Or the stuff of nightmares...

Kidding!
