This is always great to hear:

 

Will Trails of Cold Steel I and II see physical releases, or will they be digital-only like Trails in the Sky SC?

I’m pleased to say that both Cold Steel I and II are confirmed for physical and digital launches on PS3 and PS Vita.

I really hope they just insert CoK  TitS in the game somewhere. Also, for someone who already has the first TitS but hasen't played it yet, should I go ahead with that or wait for cold steel the hedgehog?

Oh wait... trails of cold steel is part of the legend of heroes series? Only played a bit of it before, most of them never made it stateside but i always wanted to play some more. Good on Xseed for bringing these over. Definity getting any LE they put out for it, though more likely it will just be their standard 1st print bonus stuff

 

 

Let me state that I only finished the first chapter and got part way through the second.  There was nothing overtly sexual about any of the graphics.

Spoiler
There is talk about boobs (or was it booty?) but again, nothing I would consider gratuitous.  There is a pretty thorough walkthru on youtube that you can view
Spoiler

 

ah thanks, i'll skip around in that to look. Lesbian stuff doesn't matter at all, some of her friends have two mommies =P Just wanted to make sure there wasnt boobs flopping everywhere or creepy loli stuff in there or something. Im thinking the gore though may be a bit much for her and she is just trying to act big by asking for it to impress her friends

 

 

P4DAN still not up on BB.com. Wake up, Mr. Joly...

heh is that from one of the anime's?

 

I have all of my stuff shipped.

Ditto. I almost always have it shipped instead of store pickup. I dont like the tags they plaster all over stuff. Only exception is the upcoming batman LE system. I figure less banging around picking it up in store

what the.. anyone know what the deal with this is? just stumbled across it on amazon when i was looking at something else

 

http://www.amazon.co...pf_rd_i=desktop

 

is it a 3d remake of the old corpse party games? Its called Corpse Party: Blood Drive - Everafter Edition

 

Googling it it seems like it  actually may just be a sequal? If thats the case should you play the earlier ones first?

Wow, Xseed just destroyed the rest of my gaming budget for the year in one go. I wasn't expecting them to bring trails of cold steel 1 and 2 over, even with the rumor. Now it would be awesome if they announced Tokyo Xanadu for sometime next year.

Great to see Xseed releasing cool games!  Too many games that I want localized.

How are we supposed to play Trails of Cold Steel II without Ao/Zero no Kiseki? The Crossbell arc is essential to understanding the second game.

well considering how we have a backlog of games, by the time we play Trails of Cold Steel II the other ones should be localized. maybe even remastered by that point! 8-)

That's not possible. The Crossbell arc was originally developed for PSP, and only one of the two has an optimized port for PC. Xseed already said that the Crossbell arc was going to be near impossible to localize, so I think that means Xseed had to choose between Cold Steel or nothing at all.

Read this article and you will see what the developers have to say, They say it is possible and you will just get a different perspective then the Japanese fanbase, According to them, it wasn't meant to be played in order anyway.

It also states why they released this one before the previous two if you want to know that as well.

 

http://xseedgames.tumblr.com/

 

PS: Here is a semi-short form if tl:dr comes to play haha!

 

I was fortunate enough to be able to express this worry in person to the president of Falcom, Toshihiro Kondo; I was also just as relieved by his response. Immediately, he responded: “Actually, this is kind of intentional. We wanted Cold Steel and Zero/Azure to be playable in any order because we noticed that, with Cold Steel, the demographic suddenly became younger. Many new fans of the series were going back to the old games.”

Essentially, their goal for Cold Steel was not only to continue developing the incredibly deep lore behind the Zemurian continent, but to do it in such a way that would both please longtime fans and help new fans feel right at home. Rest easy knowing that you can canonically play Cold Steel before Zero/Azure—you’ll simply be getting a different perspective on events, seeing things in an order that differs from what Japanese players experienced, but is still confirmed by one of the Trails creators to be A-OK and even pretty much as intended.

Suddenly worth playing now that it's on Vita.


you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Yeah that makes sense, my bad. I didn't think about that until after I posted it and was like maybe that's not the point. That does suck.

Yeah but with dark hair and less clothing! Her name is Velvet and I think she's supposed to be a pirate. I'm not making this up. I don't know...

 

Edit: Upon further inspection the clothing distribution is actually pretty close, just dispersed differently. Maybe. That's debatable. But the dark hair, on the other hand, is not! Truly unique and one of a kind. Just like all women... and ALL Tales games :). j/k

I don't know I was just playing. haha, Seriously though, I really do like the design, but they do look the same. Pretty much. I'm just hoping the character is actually cool and not so stereotypical. Being that she's the main character that's probably asking too much, or maybe we'll only really know after beating it once. Rina Sato is not cheap I bet.

 

Edit: Ignore that last part abut Rina Sato, She voiced Presa in Xillia 1 & 2. Seriously, Bamco?!! It's the same series. Kind of. Also, no offense to Rina Sato, who is awesome.

My Steins Gate Kongroo Edition for the Vita arrived today. It left the UK on the 1st, and arrived to me in Las Vegas today. That was damn fast, maybe my fastest non express international delivery ever.

 

Packaging was ass, as they used a preformed cardboard insert, where the game box and medallions box is supposed to sit in place. Of course there is only a small tab at the top and bottom of the game box area for this, so the game came loose in the box and was banging around. No damaged happened, but not due to anything they did, I just got lucky.

 

All these guys would have to do was put a little padding in the box, and this would have been fine, but of course all these companies are uber cheap when it comes to shipping. Oh well, no harm no foul I suppose, I wish I would have ordered a few extra, as now this is sold out, and should command a decent price in the secondary market due to no US version yet, and no other LE out in the wild.

 

EDIT: http://punkandlizard...review-ps-vita/

 

You don't see to many Vita games reviewed with "10", and this is more novel than games, so I may have to crack this open sooner, than later. Glad I grabbed it.

Is exporting game music a thing many vita games do? I don't recall seeing this feature before.

I would imagine the cost to produce a physical vita cart is at least comparable if not more to the cost of pressing a BD disc.

To those of you that understand better than I do, is there any reason I should be backing Bloodstained instead of just waiting for it?

KS and I have gone our separate ways.
