I had to track down some JRPGs for a friend overseas, and Rorona did come in the standard case/manual. Not sure what differed for Neptunia or Ar tonelico... YMMV, I guess!

is there a reason Hyperdimension is so expensive? i got my copy used (complete) from a gamestop b2g1, but if it's already gone rare i might consider trading it in towards the price of a new copy so i can have the art book too. how is the art book btw? is it worth getting regardless of rarity?

I sold the game and kept the art book. I think it's decent...

Is there a reason that companies like NISA don't make their games available for digital download? I mean, they could be making money past the point that their limited runs sell out.

I've been hounding Namco to release Tales of Destiny 1&2 to the PS Classics on PSN. Guess companies don't like free money.

GameFly is very YMMV on any special editions. Some people got the bonus DVD with BlazBlue when you kept it.

Amazing that NIS can release this in the US, but somehow Nintendo can't find a way to release Last Story and Xenoblade in the US profitability. Nintendo is incompetent confirmed.

And... BRS will sell a good 5k copies (I think the series is an overrated POS but that's just me). Very odd choice of localization for them.

Maybe cause what NIS sees as a good profit is what Nintendo uses to light its cigars?

Hey as long as it doesn't lose them money, they should be releasing those if only for the goodwill it will bring them with their fans. But then again, I don't feel like NoA particularly cares about us fans this gen.

Which is why you're posting on a message board and not running an international corporation.

Yea, I'd be happier if they licenced When Seagulls Cry...

Edit: Actually, Aksys should jump on it, considering how well 999 did for them.

Late to this discussion, but I assume Mangagamer will get on that license since they have already localized When Cicadas Cry (Higurashi)

I don't really recognize half the games ya'll are talking about, but it'd be nice to see them on shelves, if only to play something different.

Nintendo should consider releasing some: Professor Layton has done wonders for them. So strange can = $$$.

And how many international corporations do you run? Making a profit, garnering good will with the fan base, and eliminating those petitions that have gotten quite a bit of attention among gaming media outlets could only be good for NOA.

Considering they have a pretty barren release schedule between now and the release of the WiiU anyway I can't see a good reason not to release them unless they're waiting to polish them and release them as WiiU titles which would be a major draw for the system at release I think.

Not as likely since it's been fully, legally fan translated.

And I'd imagine he was talking about the PS3/PSP version.

I was just wondering if you were a troll or the just a really obessive compulsive hoarder with a japan fetish? Why would you need a back-up copy of this game? Have you even played the copy that isn't a back-up?
