Phantasy Star was my first RPG.  It is because of that game that I became an ardent fan of the genre to begin with.  It's a shame to see it fade into obscurity in the West.

In general it's frustrating how many Sega games like this are being left behind there. Though here it really does seem to be primarily a problem what platforms they're hitting and how demanding localization is, hopefully with PSP/DS more or less left behind we may actually see stuff like this, but Shining's been effectively abandoned for a long time here.

To be fair though, not getting the recent Shinings isn't really that big of a loss. I feel like they belong on the same tier of RPGs as the Conception games (if not a teensy bit higher due to somewhat less crappy character designs).

Shining Ark was supposed to be pretty good.  I mean, I haven't actually played it so I can't say more than that but I'm not sure why you're totally writing them off.

Shining Ark was pretty good. Stupid plot, but the gameplay was actually fun and reminded me a lot of a 3D version of the classic SF strategy games.

Its quicker and easier for me to write them off than to hold my breath in the longest of shots that this will be the game to actually make it outside of Japan.

Besides, I've yet to find any substantive proof that the gameplay is actually good and not just mediocre (or simply not my cup of tea).
