It's a visual novel, in the same vein as the Zero Escape series (999, Virtue's Last Reward). But with much more pink, apparently.

Annnnd it's already up on Amazon. With a pre-order bonus too. I have to say, I am really shocked this is getting a physical release, when so many other games go DD.
Currently looking to sell or trade: Duke Nukem Forever Complete Pack, Borderlands GOTY, Mafia 2, and more all activate on steam. PM me with offer.

At the moment, I can't figure out what the pre-order bonus is.

I might get it and the newer Hakuoki game since I haven't been disappointed yet.

Just finished all of the endings of Virtue's Last Reward and can't wait for the next game in the Zero Escape series!

Gaijinworks has apparently rebooted the voting for the cover art of CoH2. For the final round of voting, Vic has whittled it down to a choice of 4 covers: 2 covers which were the most popular choices from the last voting round, 1 cover that is a mix variation of previous cover choices C and D, and by popular request, cover art that was used for the Japanese release of CoH2.

The top two choices will be used: one for the regular edition and the other for Kickstarter backers who supported the failed-CoH2 kickstarter.

You can vote at Gaijinworks' website.

Is there a good reason why Vic is doing shit like this yet -again-? Yeah I want the game still but how can you even trust the guy now? More working designs like delays and lies. No wonder they very sadly went out of business. If they needed more time fine. But at least don't lie about it. And now a rebooting of some simple voting for a cover art thing? Is there another hidden reason behind this? Was there going to be problems all along and he's just dragging this out? No wonder I never heard much about Miami Law too. At this point I wouldn't trust the guy to do anything he says on time -ever-. Or trust anything he says. No wonder any job he has now isn't anything major. Maybe this is the main reason why the kickstarter failed too. Maybe people still don't trust Vic from all the WD stuff? I still remember all the sealed games he had hoarded for so many years and sold them off on ebay too.

It wouldn't be Vic if a game doesn't suffer Working Designs-type delays. Still, the guy's trying to appease the folks that are interested in purchasing the physical version. The most popular critiques people made was they wanted the mix of cover choice C & D and others wanted him to use the Japanese CoH2 cover art. Also, it's not like once the voting ends, we'll receive the UMDs on our laps the next day. He mentioned the PSN version will come first, which looks like to be around by Mid-March tentatively if it passes Sony Q/A.

Yeah it's being delayed but you rather him just slap any ol' artwork on paper and call it a day? I, for one, am willing to wait. It's not like I'm going to play this the moment I get it.

Yeah I never expected the game when the voting ends. I just don't want to see another Duke Nukem Forever bullshit thing or Lunar 1/2 ps1 all over again. But hell in the end it really doesn't matter what I say or anyone else does. They'll release it whenever they want and it's not like we have any real say in it.

I too am very surprised but also thrilled, as I refuse to spend money on things I can't physically own. (Would love to play Corpse Party, but...)

Do you mean Magic Knight Rayearth? The game that was delayed so much for the Saturn that it ended up becoming the last game for Saturn in general. I don't remember Lunar 1 and 2 being delayed that heinously.

So I ordered the Atlier games and Mk2 through Play Asia but now they're asking for me to send them a photocopy of my CC and ID. I went ahead and added my card to Paypal but I have to wait for it to be verified. Has this happened with anyone else?

Yep, even though I used the additional optional verification step. Actually, they just called me as I was typing this for a voice verification on top of everything else.

Wonder how many sales they're losing due to the hoop-jumping . . . I seriously thought about just cancelling the order, but I doubt anything except Neptunia Mk2 will ever drop lower (and doubtful that'll ever drop below $20).

I know that I wouldn't do that. Sending a copy of an ID and credit card (especially with no idea who exactly is on the other end or how they'll handle the data) is just asking for identity theft. If Play Asia is allowed to be that paranoid, then so am I.

NISA held a press event today and announced a few titles that they will be localizing.

A few notes from the event: Nippon Ichi Software are planning to support the PS4, Witch and The Hundred Knights game is almost completed, and iOS app Character Chowdown will get an update this coming spring.

Fuck, finally. I was getting nervous. Have had the teaser image they first released as my phone's wallpaper still. <3 Noizi Ito.

In other words, I'll pay anything for that game.

Looking forward to Time and Eternity and The Guided Fate Paradox....I think I've had enough Disgaea for a while but since it returns to my favorite characters likely from the series (also liked Disgaea 2's quite a bit), I'll pick it up somewhere along the way.
