I don't understand why they are localising a game that's the second in the trilogy and not start with the first? Doesn't make any sense...

Because they never made Rorona Plus in Japan for some reason.

>>>Virtue's Last Reward
>>>English AND Japanese Audio

And that game has a shit load of audio lol.

True that VLR has lots of audio in two languages, but it also doesn't have much else taking up space. There are only a handful of environments, a dozen or so character models, etc. Meanwhile, isn't Totori a pretty content-packed RPG?

I'll settle for the PS1 version. I remember when Gamestop sold reprints of the game and at the time I couldn't even afford the $30 price tag.

That along with Breath of Fire 4 on the PS1. I think it is time I bought both of them, even if it means the digital versions, just because that's all I can afford at the moment.

It is a shame that the PSP version couldn't be released. I would buy the digital version just to finish off my PSP Persona collection.

Just checkout PSN this week and saw Atelier Ayesha - Full Game - $49.99 in the "New on PS3" section. Didn't try to buy it since I have it ordered on amazon.

Edit: Just checked it out and its just the preorder.

Huh, interesting. Good to see that at least it's going to be available digitally, as opposed to the previous trilogy. :)

Does anyone know if there's anything that's going to be removed from the PS Store soon/already has been removed recently? I thought I read somewhere mentioning a Vita/PSP title (maybe an RPG? Not sure) going away so they dropped the price. On a related note, is there anywhere I can look that keeps track of things removed from the store? Thanks.

Quite a few niche games are on sale over at the Playstation Store:


The PS One Classic of Persona 2: Eternal Punishment is also released on the PS Store. Currently, the game is PS3 and PSP compatible (via PS3 transfer) but not PS Vita compatible. Atlus US is looking to fix that soon.

I only played the first few chapters but I enjoyed what I played. It's a character-driven dungeon crawler with great music.

It's good. Not as hard as Etrian Odyssey. Just know that the hardest chapter, by far, is chapter 3. It took me one try, but a lot of people on forums gave up at that point. Chapter 3 is maybe 20% point, so it peaks early. Some people also hated one of the characters for liking someone who seems young, despite the facts that I won't go into cause of spoilers.

I plan on picking up Unchained Blades. The trailer looked nice and I don't see it going on sale again anytime soon.

Crimson Gem Saga is a total dud though. Combat is slow and boring and random encounters are too frequent.

If I purchase DLC from Japan PSN for my Japanese game, can I use said DLC while playing on my US account? I've been under the impression that it varies on a game-to-game basis or would it just not work at all?

I believe it will work because you have the Japanese game. Using a EU PSN code (for like dlc or something--just using a EU/US thing as an example) will not work with a US copy of the game. You need to use the code--or buy the dlc--on the account for the appropriate region, no matter what. What determines if it will work or not, is the region of the game you have. That's my understanding, at least; please correct me if I am wrong.

This sounds correct. I used a pre-order Bayonetta code and downloaded the DLC for the JP version of Max Anarchy. Then I switched to my US account and it worked fine.

The only time I've run into issues is with PSP/Vita demos. I downloaded them onto my PS3, then tried to transfer them onto my Vita (with my US account) and it will say something along the lines of "this game is owned by a different account." <--this doesn't sound like it applies to you though.

Is there a reason why Ayesha didn't get a CE? I just realized the game comes out next week and was kinda surprised that there's no CE, seeing as how all the other PS3 Atelier games got CEs.

It is because Tecmo Koei bought GUST so it would have been up to them to make a CE and not NISA like the other Atelier games.

Guess they were worried about sales, or just got lazy. Only reason I'm getting it is because I had so much credit to burn at GS, and I already have the other 3 games

And what cgx said, completely forgot about Tecmo buying them

I'm bummed that there was no LE release. I've always been impressed with NiS America's LEs, and this one can't sit awesomely next to the Arland Trilogy LEs :(
