I personally cannot wait for Persona 4. Next Wednesday (when the store I pre-ordered it at will get them in), I am going to walk the 4 miles to the store and back, even if it's snowing, windy, and freezing out.

I almost missed Persona 3, but I got the FES edition and plan to beat it before I play Persona 4 (and no, I will probably not be done it by next Wednesday, so my playing of Persona 4 will be slightly delayed). But I am not going to miss out on one of the only special edition games I've ever brought that comes loaded with gooey extras!

Its a shame, but this might be the last new big-looking-forward-to PS2 game I ever buy, bit of a sad moment at the same time here.

To say I've been looking forward to Persona 4 would be an understatement. Persona 3 was easily my favorite RPG of 2007, and P4 looks to be even more polished excursion.
That said, I'm hoping that Persona 4 isn't the last PS2 Megaten title to come Stateside. From what I've heard, Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon has improved on the original title in virtually every way. Though the success of Persona 3 has helped put the spotlight on the Shin Megami Tensei series, it's still debatable whether it would have enough appeal to NA audiences. It doesn't help that the first game didn't exactly sell like hotcakes, either.

Tim Burton wanted to adapt Mai the Psychic Girl? I think he'd do a good job on Vampire Knight.

BTW, Kung Fu Cult Cinema has the following staff involved on the live-action KOF:

Director: Gordon Chan
Cast confirmed so far:
Maggie Q, Chris Evans, Bernice Liu, Sean Faris, Ray Park, David Leitch

Oh, and here is my review of that RE CG thing.

As for the Kreuk Chun Li, it seems like that idiot who ruined the Doom movie actually took SFV seriously, as they're using that version of the character for the new spin-off. She's not the worst thing about the show, but she's not really important to it, either.

Moving on to Silk Ties, someone uploaded all of it on Youtube. I don't entirely agree with you on the Golgo games, though. Wink

I am very much lookin forward to P4 this upcoming Tuesday. If you pre-order then you get a 200 page artbook which is a nice addition to the soundtrack already included in every copy and its only 40 bucks. P3:fes was rated the top rpg ps2 game for 2007 by gamespot. Definitely agree that its gonna be one of the last major titles on the ps2 since the 10 year contract for the ps2 is almost over.

No duels? No tactical battles? A mission-based storyline?

Now my interest in the latest Suikoden has seriously plummeted Mad I wonder if I'll ever see the day when we'll get a decent continuation to Suikoden III, with the characters' children and grandchildren as the 108 stars of destiny, and takes place in Harmonia with bishop Hikusaak as the final boss Twisted Evil

As for P4, it's been one of my most anticipated games of 2008 and I'm glad to see that the series has managed to garner more fans, though I have to finish Valkyria Chronicles and the latest Tomb Raider before I even start it.

Personally, I think Suikoden Tierkries is trying to win an award for the least pronounceable game of 2009.

Now, is it called Tierkreis or Tierkries? Tierkreis would actually make sense in German, because that's how we call the zodiacs.

As far as the review of WRESTLE ANGELS 2 SURVIVOR...

Yeah, he laughs now but I bet Todd said the same thing about "Onechanbara" being released here. And it's coming out for the 360!

Man the good stuff is always coming.

Well, I'm thinking of taking on the 'P4' challenge. I've never played a 'Persona' game in MY LIFE. And considering what I've seen with 'P3', I haven't a clue as to how the system works. But I will say, that 'Atlus', is a very creative company and take pride in their work. I've always been impressed at their "cult" games. So I'm actually looking into their direction once more for something a little different.

Y'know it's made by the Japanese when games have cute "pudding" creatures running around. Razz I may have to check up on this game to see how it goes.

Unleashed was... such a huge disappointment.

Just... abolished anything besides those daytimes levels and you would've had a fun game. .-.

Ah P4...so looking forward to that game. Too bad I spent my money on anime (curse you righstuf!) so I'm not able to pre-order it. Wanted that artbook, too. Oh well. Hopefully (price wise) P4 will turn out like Eternal Poison. That is, a few weeks after it's released go down to $20. I'd be willing to pay full price, but if it's cheaper, why pay more? At any rate, I do find it sad that P4 is going to be the last big release of the PS2. I've had one since launch, and it is the God among consoles. If titles continue to be made for it though, I hope it ends quickly, or another great one is released after p4; it'd be said if it didn't go out with a bang.
