Good news. Haven't played that one myself, but I have heard many good things. Chaos;Head was an interesting (if unusual) play, so I have high hopes for this one.

Damn, why didn't I go to that panel.  Would have loved to see the crowd's reaction.  Instead I was at this stand-up comedy thing that wasn't even that good...

I'm a bit worried that they might charge a lot (not too much, more like $50, but that's still more than I'm personally willing to pay for a story I'm already familiar with to some degree). Otherwise, I'm excited by this news. I'm not a big VN fan, but this seems interesting enough that I'd be willing to give it a go.

I just hope that JAST USA offers a playable demo.  What bugged me a lot was that there was no playable demo for Aselia: The Eternal and in this day and age of downloadable demos on consoles as well as PC/MAC/tablet, the lack of a demo is an oversight. 
Games I've given Editor's Choice to:
Ever 17, Hourglass of Summer, Anachronox, Persona PSP, Radiant Historia, To The Moon, Revolution 60

Preorders are up!  Either download-only or a limited edition box (that also includes a download code).

Oddly enough, they still don't have an exact release date despite taking preorders...

They're notorious for releasing games ages after the dated they first announced. So perhaps they're pre-empting that?

I pre-ordered the special edition about a month ago.  I actually haven't read it yet, or watched the anime, because I've been waiting for this.

The end of March seems like an okay time for my gaming schedule, at least.

I read the fan tl well before they announced this and have no interest in buying it for myself. However, I have bought 3 or so limited editions fro various friends. Highly recommend buying it for the fan book. Also, Jast has been hinting at a Steam release now. Wouldn't be shocked to see it announced for Steam in the next couple weeks.

It's out!

Well, technically only the download version, they haven't sent my physical CE yet.

Eh, I don't know, they sent me the digital key, I used it, and it works.  Maybe they mean the physical version as April 30th?
