I love Dr. Who, before you get all aggro.

Is that the video game equivalent of "I'm not racist, one of my best friends is black!"?

Star, this is why you're one of my favorite users.

I'm getting really sick of waiting for NoA to say something about this. I'm breaking my Wii and importing this stuff. I don't care if NoA announces that they're localizing it today. They've lost my money. Besides, I love British accents. It's one of the two reasons I want to watch Doctor Who (the other being the phone booth).

I have nothing against the Brittish accent.

Whatever dialects the Brittish have are not what I'm against either... I'm just saying, don't publish a game meant for the south, in the north.  I mean, DO THAT, if it's an awesome game, but the publisher wouldn't aim for that.

I can see it feeling odd to have British accents, mainly because this isn't a game I'd really assume to HAVE that kind of flavor like Fable or Dragon Quest VIII, but at the same time... it IS a change, and there's always the Japanese VA. I'll probably see what I think of a few British clips, and if I'm dissatisfied I'll just play in Japanese.

But we Europeans play videogames with American English all the time.

I've played it now too, Ramza. I am going to drown in it, and enjoy every moment. I completely agree with you.

Ten points to Gryffindor! :D

But back on track about the actual game, it is so big! :D

You want to watch a TV show just because it has british accents and a "phone booth?"

You people that are playing this are NOT helping! I really want to play this, but don't feel like going through the hassle of modding my Wii. NOA has already moved on. This won't come out in America. hmph.

Does it help if I say it's a massive timesink? Because it is. The clock sits at 40 hours and I think I'm just halfway through the game. Perhaps I'm doing too many sidequest, but most get done while exploring anyway, so...

I'm not saying you can't go directly from plot point to plot point, you totally can. However, I just cannot stop myself exploring this place! It's so addictive...

Same thing here, this is really frustrating. I really hate NoA these times (nearly no games on the 3DS yet, the bad sytem they used for OoT3D soundtracks first, the fact I thought I wasn't an ambassador first because their website had a problem, and now the bad habit to NOT import good games anymore...) I'm really, really sad right now, we shouldn't have to be begging to play what everybody agrees to say is one of the best that came out recently.
That aside, I would really want to import it, but: it's already hard to find, I'm really against piracy and modding and wouldn't want to do it myself, and well if it actually came out in the US, it would only be even more frustrating that I went through this trouble for nothing! They should really make some kind of statement, and soon, because they really seem to be asking us to hate them. Really, about every big move they made in the last few months was plain stupid.

Phew! Sorry about that, I had to say it! On a side note, I'm happy for those of you who are able to play it, it's fun to read your enthusiastic comments!

By all reports it shouldn't be too hard to mod your Wii and if you bought it some time ago, its no longer under warranty anyways. Right now the Wii is gathering dust so why not make it play a game I really want to play? Sure, I would love it if NOA would publish the game and let me do it without the bother, but if its already in English and its possible to play, why should I just sulk in the corner?

In the mail...... hurry up!

Holy shit this game exceeded my already high expectations!!

Granted I'm only 2 hours into the game, but damn is it awesome. And the English VA is pretty good as well.

btw, if you're not playing with a classic controller then you are doing it wrong.

Is it possible NoA is just waiting for an HD port on the Wii U?

Well, it's try that supplies are running low, but I'm sure Nintendo will remedy that within a month. They'd be crazy if they didn't.

I doubt it. It's not as if they've never done rereleases of older games. It's Nintendo. Why would they wait?
