He could also used the search feature...

OR he's in Europe and it's not available there. Or at least it wasn't last I heard.

I kinda wish Vita (and 3DS) was digital only.  It'd force the issue.  Why do the Japanese rebel against this technology?  It's the ultimate gaming convenience.  You could theoretically download a game at the stroke of midnight, never have to worry that they will be out of stock, and it's only a few button clicks away.  Why would anyone prefer to waste gas driving to a store (or pay bus/train fare), fight a potential crowd, risk inventory being out of stock for a physical copy? 

You could even still have "premium" editions of downloadable games.  You could have your soundtracks in mp3 format instead of CD.  Artbooks in the form of ebook or visual novel.  Posters could be replaced by wallpaper or dynamic themes.  And the best part is there doesn't even have to be a limited amount of "premium" copies as there's no physical run of anything.

Anyone else agree with me?

No, I don't agree. Its fine as an alternative, but I sure as hell wouldn't want it to be the only means of purchase. On a side note, the "premium" alternatives you proposed will have neither any value nor appeal compared to their physical counterparts making them mostly pointless.

Watched a "WTF is" of this game, not really my cup of tea, but looks like a fun game for anyone into this sort of thing. Art style screams Monty Python, and that's always a good thing.

I'm actually very disappointed in the stealth aspect of Assassins Creed. Its a lot easier to just plough through everything and then rip down a few posters than actually try to be stealthy. The parkour is very well executed though.

Oddly enough, I'm starting to look forward to this. I'm not really sure why though.
741  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on: October 16, 2011, 06:06:16 PM
I've already seen enough of this game to know I'm going to get it. I think I'll do the same thing I'm doing with Xenoblade, and avoid any more hype that surrounds it. That way I can jump right in without any overblown expectations.

On a side note, is Demons Souls online mode still being supported now that this is out? I've heard they ware going to pull the plug a few times but always ended up extending. Its been a while since I logged on and I'm hoping that Ill still get a chance to help some players out and maybe even invade a few games before I move on to the next game.

So, I finally got around to checking the PSN Store, and surprise, surprise...nothing there. Too bad, I was actually looking forward to giving Odin Sphere a go.

I'm astounded that in the age of digital distribution, they still restrict themselves to one region. I'm sure that at the very least they would make double of what localising the game to English would cost.
745  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Batman Arkham City on: October 16, 2011, 05:38:46 PM
Wait, is the Catwoman code one of those "comes with new game" instances, or a full blown day zero DLC? Either way, I hate this kind of thing, but the latter case would be exceptionally bad, since she was advertised as an integral part of the game for months.
746  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Would You Recommend Any of These Over Xenoblade? on: October 16, 2011, 05:29:06 PM
I've yet to play Xenoblade. Its on my list of games to pick up eventually though. Despite not having played it, I get the feeling that its being elevated to epic status partly because of how awful its competition has been this generation. The question is, how much of a factor in its popularity this actually is. Its something I plan on answering myself once I finally get around to playing it.
747  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Anime to game adaptations we may never see... on: October 16, 2011, 05:12:21 PM
Anything "to game" is usually a disaster (there are rare instances of good adaptations, but every rule has exceptions), so they can stay in Japan for all I care.
748  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Legend of Grimrock on: October 16, 2011, 05:06:59 PM
No ones talking about it, because not a lot of people know of its existence. I have to admit, it does look pretty good for what it is. Nice to see some oldschool RPGs making a comeback. Reminds me a bit of Stonekeep.
749  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Ratchet and Clank: All for One on: October 16, 2011, 05:02:44 PM
I love Ratchet and Clank games. But no, I will not be picking this up. I hate what I've seen of it so far, and I hope this is just a one time spin off. I'd be very disappointed if this was the direction all future games in the series would take.
750  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade on: October 07, 2011, 05:18:21 PM
So a new game here is $109 or $119 Aus.

Really? That's pretty ridiculous to be honest. And developers wonder why people buy used games...
