They've really lost their marbles now.  Criminal Girls?  Seriously?  Hoo boy...  And watch this, if this actually comes to US shores and it comes time to decide amongst the staff the lucky reviewer who gets this gem, everyone's going to say "NOT IT!" and I'll end up having to take this one for the team.  And to think, not too long ago they apologized for Last Rebellion and some of the subpar games they published.  Oh well...


Neal! I would TOTALLY put my hand up for reviewing.

We almost never get ads on TV for games down here. I can't remember the last time I saw one... oh, no, wait. Super Mario Galaxy 2 has had one. But it's not really that bad.


I feel embarrassed just watching that one. Ritz has been ruined for me forever.

I did laugh, but I think you're trying too hard! :)

I've had mixed feeling about NIS recently. I can't say I'd be crying if they went under. They've released a number of sub-standard games and then decided to just fall back and rehash Disgaea.... again. I like Disgaea and all, but they barely change anything between each one. Something that has particularly bothered me about Disgaea 3 is graphical quality. I have no issue with them using 2D sprites, but they just reused the same ones from PS2. They look appalling nowadays. You think they could have at least made them look a little sharper. I mean, I have 2D DS games that look better than Disgaea 3.

That looks like a pretty big difference to me, Hathen! Nice work!

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.

So was there anything not completely godawful about Chaos;Head, or was it just the anime that was an unsalvageable trainwreck?

Oh, if you've only seen the anime you're missing out. The anime was pretty rubbish. The game is fantastic.

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).

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

I think that's why I liked it.
850  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Two Amazing Short Films... on: August 05, 2010, 06:49:14 PM
...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.
854  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Water stages in games on: August 05, 2010, 09:21:13 AM
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.
855  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.
