Yakuza 2 on the PS2 is the same way.


They claimed Muramasa was so heavily steeped in Japanese culture that any attempt to "Americanize" (see the Tales games from Namco Bandai) it, would completely and utterly destroy what makes the game "fun" and entertaining.

Which I believe. And dual-language options should be the the norm for all JRPGs as well.

New Developer Walk-Throughs. I really really am tempted to pick this up and support Vanilla Ware. Their work is really breath taking.

I'll be going to reserve this game @ Gamestop this weekend after watching this.

I have this pre-ordered at GameStop but, does anyone know when this comes out for sure? GameStop says 09.01.2009, but pretty much everywhere else says 09.08.2009...

Bleh, up is still jump? I really don't understand how in 2009 jump still gets mapped to up. Looking forward to the game, would love the pre-order bonus but doubtful I'm buying new anyway and definitely not from gamestop. Too many stories of people having problem getting bonuses from them, I'll stick to their used game sections.

there arent enough buttons on wiimote + Nunchuk. Doesnt explain why it doesnt have the option for gamecube control. Just place a preorder, if they didnt get the bonus, cancel it.

I understand that, but they need to find another work around. In a game that requires jumping around for bosses, enemies and the environment(all constantly, WITH a double jump and gliding?) you really just need to find a solution that isn't up. Maybe it's just me, but I think that is one of the worst control ideas ever other than just having broken controls. Again, I still plan to get it and mostly everything else looks to be really awesome, but mapping jump to up and having no way to change controls(no config, correct?) is annoying.

Not really a wall scroll but damn it is beautiful. Gonna have to pass though, some people get weirded out by posters covered in half-naked anime girls.

No joke. I'm a nerd through and through, but I try to take it easy on stuff in my room/on my computer. I have a hanging one of ichigo from bleach, then I have an actual wall scroll and painting from china(a poem and mountain painting respectively). But I tend to keep the nakedness not on display, which amounts to never showing any anime girl on any kind of printed material because they are always showing something. Of course if it was some half naked biker chick, I'd be totally normal, right? ;)

I pre-ordered. I dislike Gamestop, but I can always cancel before the ship date if Amazon happens to get some. I've been excited for this game for a while, though I'm a bit unsure about how the localization is going to pan out, since Ignition is the one who picked it up after XSeed dropped it. Here's hoping it's not terrible.


english subtitles only - no voice over localization. said itd been 2 more months in development. www.gametrailers.com has like 3 wlkthrus on 1st page by dev that gives lots of info.
and in gamespot preview they said u COULD remap buttons AND use gamecube controller.

Is this only going to be in the US version(or I guess pal too)? I thought you couldn't originally and when I heard him saying up is jump in the walkthrough I assumed you still couldn't.

If that's true, that was the only major gripe I had going into the game and I'm really looking forward to it now.(Now you got my hopes up even more :bomb:!)

Played about 45 minutes of the full version last week. Let me just saw that the game is amazing- DMC combat mixed with Castlevania/Metroid exploration. There's recipes to buy, bonus areas, flying birds, and at least bad ass boss that makes the eye-eyed guy shown look absolutely pathetic. For those that don't know the game uses a tag-team approach to your swords that vaguely resembles MvC2.

Wiimote and nunchuck play was super-smooth, but for all the old school types, there is GC pad support. From what I've seen possible GOTY. No fooling!

BTW: Shane Bettenhausen called it a 'fold out' rather than an art scroll. After seeing the game anything less than a hardcover/bound book is a crime; the art took 4 years to create.

Haha yea that pretty much sums it up. Guys can line their walls with half naked supermodels and pornstars but if I put up a tasteful, albeit revealing, wallscroll featuring an animated girl from something that I actually take an interest in it's weird and creepy. Ahh the narrowminded masses, gotta love it.

If you buy the game and return it but keep the wallscroll, do you think ebgames would ask for it back?

Amazon has a way better price with $3 dollars off plus if you have the ECA membership, you could get it for 42 rather than 50.

Thoughts?

newegg also has it for $45, and sometimes the bing cashback is at 10%
depending on your tax situation, it's another option
also, the gogamer.com price is decent

Gamestop/EB Games never ask for pre-order bonuses back. They aren't listed on the receipt, so they can't actually track them.

Um, yes, I'm aware that there will not be English voiceovers. Text translation is still localization, and that's what I was referring to.

Did you guys see the cover for the newest play magazine?

I'm tempted to buy a copy just to frame.

Apparently Amazon is supposed to get some sort of pre-order bonus for this game, according to the last Livestream done by Ignition. Wonder if it's going to just be the wall scroll.

Apparently their next broadcast is Sept 2nd at 5 PST / 8 EST. I think this is the right website for it. If Amazon doesn't update their page by then, I may have to listen in.

It's an obvious Ode to the painting "The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife".

I just ordered this game using the $10 code GS gave me for not having the Metroid poster for my preorder. So I got this game for $42 shipped and cant wait to see the wall scroll.

If Gamestop doesn't have my scroll then they'll be getting a canceled preorder ;)

Forget the scroll, if they do what they did to me with my Wolfenstein pre-order, there will be hell to pay.

What did they do...they gutted it. They gutted my pre-order. Luckily they like me, they discounted the game, gave me a free Fallout 3: Point Lookout guide, and threw me a few other freebies from other pre-order games...so we'll see what happens today.

If Amazon gets the Wall Scroll, that would be fantastic. I'm sick of GS shipping everything in a fucking bubble mailer. First I got the messed up BlazBlue artbook and than I got the messed up Dissidia slipcovers.
