Somewhere, on some site, people still complain that it's not Vesperia PS3.

What! I'd never do something like that! At least, not before complaining about not getting that PS2 Destiny remake.

Eugh. :(
Yeah that one stings.

The fan translation for NDS Tales of Hearts has (of course) been cancelled so as to not affect the Vita sales.  How kind.  However, Kaji also lists some of the things he felt was wrong with the new version.  It's nothing TOO bad, but definitely some laziness seems to have been involved.  I can't imagine Bamco making this to "revolutionize" their brand, so...eh.

He also links to some LP videos (mostly to showcase problems, but on the bright side, you see gameplay! :D ).

Shing has been renamed "Kor" (Kor = Cor = Heart).
And Kohaku, who was "Amber" in Graces (as a secret boss) is back to Kohaku.

I'm more bothered by the latter than the former because of the inconsistency.  But eh.  Fans are otherwise quite 'opinionated' on the issue (to say the least).

I definitely, absolutely, prefer Kor.  Good choice, Shing sounds horrible in English.

I'm not sure how I feel about Kohaku/Amber.  Amber is a pretty traditional female name in English, maybe they wanted to make it more, er, foreign, sounding and stayed with Kohaku?

Yeah.... I personally don't find "Kohaku" rolls off the tongue very well, but funny enough, I get tripped out that "Amber's" design has no shades of yellow or orange in it...it's all jus BLUES and PURPS and HWHITES.

Kor sounds weird in Dutch. I swear, like half of the old dudes are named Kor/Cor or a variation thereof. My archery instructor was and it's a small miracle they shortened my dad's name (Cornelis) to Cees instead of Cor.

Oh well, I'll get used to it.

Almost sounds like what Atlus did with Persona 2: Eternal Punishment back in 2000 I think, considering the Americanized name changes in Persona 1.  Nate Nanjo, Ellen Kirishima...
Games I've given Editor's Choice to:
Ever 17, Hourglass of Summer, Anachronox, Persona PSP, Radiant Historia, To The Moon, Revolution 60

It feels so weird that we got 4 Tales games this year (Symphonia HD, Symphonia DotW HD, Xillia 2, Hearts R).

Is this like... Real life?

I won't be satisfied til vesperia ps3 sees a US release. I will wait forever, but I will never stop believing.

TASTY!

A Tales-filled year, they said (I'm kinda combining 2013 with '14 here because it still applies).  And it's nice Zesteria was announced the day of as well.

CE announced, it's out late August...apparently it's $129 though.  But it does look fancy:

I haven't seen any import reviews (although I haven't looked) so I'm kind of hesitant on Xilia 2. I'd put Xilia in the 8ish range. We'll see I guess.

Will definitely be saving money by not getting the CE this time. Not a fan of the metal case or the figure, so that's a bit of a bittersweet blessing.

People liked Xillia 2 much more than Xillia I believe. Better story pacing I guess?

The battle system was smoother too.  But yeah, a lot of love is thrown to the plot this time around.  So I think that's something. I dunno if I wanna drop $129 for a CE though, as nice as it is.  Plus I hate that Dawn of the New World artist.
