I really need to upgrade my amazon to prime. I want play this so bad right now.  Backlog be damned!

Well, if it helps, if you have a .edu Email address, you can get Prime for free.  Usually this means you're a student or a professor, but hey, if you know a relative who is a University student, you can use them.

Once I became an Alumni the university axed my email address so that options out. I might give the relative option a go though.

I can't see the game selling well unless people get the word out.  I never even heard of this game - and probably never would have - if I didn't see Neil's positive review.

That being said, really hope they're trolling.  I'd like to play the game difficulty be damned.

Yeah, I would not have known about it either if it wasn't for RPGFAN. Advertising for the game is almost non existent, and word of mouth is probably the only way this, and Trails in the Sky are going to get any sells.

(AND Radiant Historia that, iirc sold way below expectations on week 1)

The week isn't even over yet and there are sales figures out already?
^this. Also most people do not buy their games until the weekend, although I am not expecting  RH to be a high seller anyway.

Japanese developers need to get their shit together. By the time TLG is released Naughty Dog will have produced 3 uncharted games, they even found the time to throw in multiplayer not to mention the fact that they created one of the most impressive engines you'll find from scratch.
Same goes for polyphony digital, square-enix and others. Duke Nukem is a different issue, there where all kinds of external problems, the game even got to the point of being cancelled. The developers I mentioned had all the resources they needed right from the start, it's really hard to justify these 6 year development cycles with anything other than poor management.
Let's put it this way, if every developer took this long to create a game this industry would be in trouble. There are a lot of european and american studios showing us every day that it's possible to create a fantastic game in 2 or 3 years.

The higher ups at SE seem to have realized this since they announced plans to release a AAA title every 2 years, let's see if they manage to deliver XIII-2 this year and Versus in 2012 like they promised.

I blame Japan's life employment policies for their development woes. They are way behind the west in programing because of it.

I guess that means we should be getting it?
Guess again: http://beefjack.com/news/atlus-no-plans-for-catherine-in-north-america/

Atlus USA has spoken. I think I'm going to import this game and hope for a fan translation.

"it makes Demonís Souls look like a walk in the park" Dayum

import a go go!

I bought it Tuesday but have not opened it yet. It will be a while before I get to around to playing it actually.

Why has Amazon not shipped this yet for me? :(
This happened to me with Tactic Ogre. I Ordered Radiata Stories from Amazon yesterday, and it shipped today. Amazon is getting lazy with their pre orders it seems. The same crap happened  with MVC3 for some people.

Yep, I really hope that xseed will start marketing it soon...as of now, even on forums like this one it is not getting a whole lot of attention. It would be a very sad thing indeed if it bombed.
Yeah, I'd have to agree to that. You would think with all the time and effort put into the game that there would be more advertising for it. Legend of Heroes does not have the name recognition a series like Ys have and what little recognition it does have is mostly associated with the god-awfully localized Gagharv trilogy.

I agree on Bahamut Lagoon, 7th dragon, SeGaGaGa, SD Snatcher and Seiken Densetsu 3. Freaking shame we did not get any of these.

Hmm.. sounds like 60 bucks that was going to go towards this will instead go to upgrading some part of my computer.  I am kinda thinking Bioware spent a bit too much time/resources on TOR and this game was the casualty.
568  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky on: February 21, 2011, 12:16:36 PM
Some parts of the translation was embarrassingly bad. When you have to read the text, and have to rephrase it in your mind so that it makes sense then yeah.......... fuber translation.  Proofread they did not do,or it hey did, it was the most half-assed job ever.
569  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky on: February 21, 2011, 09:17:03 AM
If I remember correctly the poor reviews were mainly due to bandai namco's awful translation. I could be wrong as I have yet to take the wrapping off of all three games.
^This. It was one of the most poorly localized game series ever.

Well, I won't judge until I play it. For all we know most of those complaints came from people who do not normally fit the demographic (eroge otaku who mostly only buy eroge/Vn and got lured in by Catherines art style and premise). For Petes sake, people are generalizing a races gaming habits off a few bitchers.
