I want to pick up Sakura Taisen, but damn it all, Final Fantasy XIII is all I can do right now. That's right, do. I vote we talk about Final Fantasy XIII.

The entry on Sakura Wars was gold. In retrospect, it's a shame you didn't use that as a running gag from the first time the title was announced.

Also, am I the only one who ever thought it would be fun to have a sort of online Wario Ware play-alike where users could make their own games based on movies/other games/anime? Kinda like [url]http://www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=​PQAwnj_cEDo this[/url], only with more variety.

I really hope that's a 2-headed tiger and not... anything else...

Chaos Rings: The graphics remind me of Dragoneer's Aria. And the title makes me think of some crappy Sonic spin-off.

FMA RPG: Yeah I saw this coming, considering there has been one before. I'm sure it'll be a seller.

Trinity Universe: Well if anything, it'll keep Morrigan and Felicia from getting any more fanservice. And it does present another Atelier gal we didn't get. Surprised they don't use anyone from the Iris games though...okay, there is Pamela, but she's kind of a recurring joke character really. But this game will make Etna and Flonne fans nuts Anime hyper

Mimana Iyar Chronicles: I know the cast is just one guy and all women after that, but I need a new RPG for my PSP since finishing Lunar. The battle system looks like serious win.

By the time I finish Sakura Wars 3 & 4, I should have a WIi so I can play SW5.

Looking forward to Trinity Universe. And you know, I don't think Prinny can do better than Pamela. I mean, what better match for him than a ghost girl?

Incidentally, Atelier Totori: Atelier of Arland for PS3 has been announced, it's a sequel to Atelier Rorona.

Can't wait for my copy of Sakura Wars to ship next week (need to finish Lunar before then...)! It's a shame NIS doesn't think there's interest in releases of the previous games. Sad

Samurai Shodown Sen is very tempting. I actually liked (and own) Warriors Rage so this can't be that bad.

Oh, and I keep my copy of the Samurai Shodown OAV right next to my Art of Fighting OAV. Very Happy

Wow, a shout out to the Virtual Boy, and I was shocked enough to see a reference to it in Maria Holic. (no I never owned one...)

I chose the PS2 edition over the wii because I felt the additions where worth the money spent.

Curious, why is the box for Mimana: Iyar Chronicle shown as PSP, but the blurb says Nintendo DS? Which system is it actually for?

Chaos Rings looks crazy. I didn't know iphone could make graphics.


what the fudge is this? Some kind of joke?

I assume that the big reason the Nakoruru OVA wasn't released in the US is that it was never finished. The sole episode that exists ends on a cliffhanger: a series was clearly intended.

Poor Samsho Sen. Game looks terribly bland, in direct opposition to how Samsho is supposed to be. When your competition is Soul Calibur it's probably best to give up and make another videogame instead.

If what you said about Zeta was true, then thanks for spoiling me. RazzAnime hyper

Pretty neat of you to get an interview in, though.

Darn spellchecker, that's to be precise, I think. Laughing

No no no... 3D on a handheld? That is exactly the wrong direction for Nintendo to be moving in. They need to build on what they already have with the featureset of the DS/DSi becuase that is obviously what people want. Wasting time and processing power on 3D on a handheld cannot end well.

Great news on Trinity Universe. Never thought it would see an English release.

I am a tad baffled as to why they rushed the release of Dead or Alive on PSP over here though. Do they think there is some sort of demand or anticipation for this when all fans want is Dead or Alive 5 already?
