We got plenty of kickstart for indie games now let see if there is any interest in localizing Japanese RPG. There are also people that refused to buy anything digital so this is a chance for them to speak with their wallet.

My trade list: http://www.cheapassg...ead.php?t=42397

Looking for Danganronpa Anime Expo edition.  Please PM me if you have it for sale.

First game sucked dicks. Find Etrian Odyssey games to play if you're dying to mess with dungeon crawling, at least there you could draw cute little maps on the DS.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

I seem to be in the vast minority of people who rather enjoyed Class of Heroes.

I don't think Victor Ireland could have picked a game I'd be less interested in.

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

The people who refuse to buy any digital downloads are only cheating themselves out of niche titles like this. Avoiding the sunk cost for media production and royalty fees is the only way such a game can have a shot at making the licensee who localizes it any profit.

If people want the maps and tchotkes, let them buy it separately. If the game is any damn good but with a limited audience, get it up on PSN and maximize the sales efficiency.
If I thought I needed to get out in the sunshine I'd play Boktai.

They need to hook up with GameArts and get a kickstarter for Lunar 3 going, instead of porting over obscure JRPGs.

And I still have faith in good JRPGs (Radiant Historia, Xenoblade, etc.) still exist these days but Class of Heroes was terrible. I can't imagine CoH2 being any better. Looks like they'll get their wish though as they've already got $50K+.

The problem here, as Vic noted, is the Japanese. Most of them are not up for trying new things and won't even talk to you about such things. You know it def wouldn't happen with an established name series unless this becomes profitable. If this goes through you'll probably see this with a higher profile series.

Some companies also have unrealistic numbers. They sell 1m in Japan and they think the game is worth that in America (for licensing), but it won't ever sell nearly as much here as it did there.

Well, with something like Lunar, I wouldn't be asking them to take the next step in RPG evolution... Lunar 1 & 2 weren't all that different, I'd just want a third story. Then again, if Dragon Song was any indication, then maybe it's not such a great idea.

A lot of the tiers don't really appeal to me. Judging by the progress it has made, I do not think that it will succeed.

And of course, instead of trying this again with a game people actually give half a Fuck about, Vic will lament how poorly it did and will never try it again.

They've kinda hinted that's in the works. But most likely this business model needs to be proven first (hence them starting with a really niche title), so it probably will never happen...
