So the all important question is "Will this game have Japanese dialogue?".  Everything else is less important.

Really? IMO, The English voices in the series post-Eternia have been pretty good for the most part. Troy Baker was perfect as Yuri. Besides, as long as it's not at Arc Rise Fantasia levels of awful it can't take away that much from the experience, can it?

Neat ninja edit.

Still don't see the problem with it, but yes. A bad copy.

Now I need to get it to work or find a new one.

Do you have a PSP or PS3? It's only 6 bucks on the Playstation network.

Well, if she's looking for a dark psp game and doesn't mind lots of cutscenes, you might want to look up Shadow of Destiny.

edit: Here's a trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mItuNlw8GP0

All I have to say is; remake Eternal Blue already. Again.

They're probably just gonna make a 3DS version of Lunar 1 instead. -_-

I think it promotes a very superficial way of what makes a good, interesting female character. It's not about what the female characters do, what their motivations are or anything like that. It's mostly about how much cleavage is or isn't showing.

I agree with the rest of your post, but I think this part is a little unfair. It's not that characters with little clothing can't be interesting. If you read her articles about Yuna and Lightning...https://gomakemeasandwich.wordpress.com/2011/01/25/lightning-is-awesome-i-just-wish-she-was-wearing-pants/

I think she makes it pretty clear what makes a good, interesting female character.

I hope when or if Suikoden VI comes out, that they remember all the continuity. It would be disappointing if we never see the Pesmerga vs Yuber final showdown.

I fell for the Kingdom Hearts one.....:(

I'm a bit disappointed they aren't enhancing the graphics at all. I've always really dug the character design and art style overall of Persona 2, but IMO the graphics don't do it justice. The character sprites and pixelated 3D environments just look bland. Oh well, that's my only complaint. Still looking forward to playing this.

oops posting error

In an ideal world most gamers would make educated purchases wherein they spent time reading reviews for (or renting) games prior to buying them and didn't form prejudices based on the character design or art style of a game.  In reality,  many are more likely to look at a commercial for a game, or look at the box, or screenshots and say "Dude, that's bad-ass!" or, as you noted, "Dude, that's gay!" and make their decisions based on that.  Hell, look at how many copies CoD: Black Ops has sold!

I agree. My point wasn't to dispute the notion that a prevalent amount of gamers will dismiss or bash games for insensible reasons, but to criticize the fact that they do.

I don't understand the whole "androgynous characters" criticism. I know it's a matter of personal taste, but it just seems like a dumb reason to bash a game. I don't see how it detracts from the gameplay or storytelling. And frankly, I feel that with some(not all) of the people who make this criticism there's an undercurrent of homophobia. I noticed this watching Spoony's FFX review. Some people act as if all men should conform to our notions of masculinity, and if they don't they must be gay and gay=bad.

Hmm, there's also Time Hollow, but it's kinda meh.

For those who think it's an unreasonable price, remember that the PSP Go launched at around the same price.(as did the original psp).

I'd emphasis the original PSP over the go because, well, the go was an awful idea and would only solidify the argument that $250 is way too much.

Not that comparing to the original PSP is really much better.

Good point. I forgot about the PSP's sales.

For those who think it's an unreasonable price, remember that the PSP Go launched at around the same price.(as did the original psp). I think considering all the new features, graphics and backwards compatibility, I think the price is decent.
