...or maybe they just got lucky. Either way, we don't get what we want sometimes and we have to deal with it.

Truest words, for better or for worse.

How much does the PSP version differ from the SNES version?  If you guys really want to play the game, the SNES version is always available in Japanese (unless you can find *something*).

If we're still talking about the same game, Blood of Bahamut is a DS game, which has nothing to do with Bahamut Lagoon for the SNES. So in other words, it differs a lot, yeah.

Additionally Blood of Bahamut was just a mediocre Monster Hunter clone except without the customization element that made the MH series popular in the first place, and that one of the monsters is a giant blue chick who you can strip for material to forge bigger swords. It and Sigma Harmonics were not worth it anyways so it's all a moot point. In fact only SaGas 2 & 3 are most likely the only games made by Squeenix within the last few years that we've actually missing out on thus far.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

This is why people have to import which is why i hate consoles that are region locked. I wanted to try Blood of Bahamut, I bought the soundtrack and it was really good.  I guess my hopes of Sigma Harmonics is shot down too :(

Maybe so, but if they're not going to release it themselves, I'd like to see them give someone else (Atlus, Xseed) the chance to do it.

If you hate LOD, something tells me you'd hate this game too and besides, it's supposedly relatively import friendly.
