So play-asia wants people to know which weeb games are in demand here so that they could relay this information to publishers. They make it sound like this only applies to upcoming games, but you never know.

Because it's 1 A-press in a full run, and 0 A-presses in a segmented run, so the term "half an A press" is a short form of saying, "In the full run it counts as one, in this segment it doesn't count at all but it's still important to mention because you need to release it in the beginning"

Elijah Bell

This is a difficult decision to make. On one hand, I know basic 日本語 and anything with furigana is a no brainer to translate with a dictionary so I would want them to translate something complex, like Yakuza, or something with loads of text, like a Visual Novel, but the more complex it is the more work they will have as well, and they might opt out of any options that might seem too dauting.

There's also licensing costs and copyright problems to think about, like in [email protected] where licensing all those VAs and songs might just end being too expensive.

There's actually a surprisingly small number of games that we can realistically request.

Take panty shots with your camera and evade the police in a disapointingly empty open world with some dating sim elements in.

You press it and don't let go, since apparently a press isn't complete unless you release the button. Or something like that.

Charles Howard

At this rate, I doubt we'll get anything from Play-Asia. Too many games, not enough attractive sales figures.

Metal Gear Pantsu. Although, I hear it's really boring - especially after the devs patched the scene editor so you can't make implicitly lewd screenshots.

I really wouldn't want to waste a localization on this. You also probably guessed right in calling it shit, when people would rather do the fishing mini-games rather than whatever the fuck you do in the main storyline.

I'd like that, honestly, even if Gust have stated they have zero interest in bringing it over West-side.

Play-Asia isn't telling them to localize the game, just to include english subtitles for asian version of the game so even though the game not officially release on the west, peoples can still import it. Its a smart marketing strategy since Play-Asia is one of the popular site to import games. More english asian version = more sales for them

Fuuraiki 3

In Fuuraiki 3, gameplay is split between three distinct parts.

“Touring” entails freely traveling around the entire island by motorcycle, which is depicted with photography. At certain points, players can stop on the side of the road to better enjoy the view.
“Adventure” portions of the game see over 100 famous tourist spots to visit. It’s during such sections of the games that players encounter the game’s heroines and other local people as they gather information and take pictures.
“Camping” stretches of the game task players with compiling information about the places they visited and running posts about them online. With the protagonist being an aspiring travel writer, the ultimate goal is to churn out posts that will be received well in a writing contest in which they’re participating.

That sounds amazingly comfy.

Oh my bad I thought it would be the same problem then yeah it should definitely get a subbed release. Still I would more want Omega Labyrinth and Genkai Tokki: Seven Pirates right now. There is no chance those games are coming out here in an acceptable state, and I prefer RPGs to rhythm games.

Isaac Cox
Isaac Cox

The main problem would be DLC, considering how eager bamco is with DLC on [email protected] games. Unless Sony figures something out about cross-region DLC(which I doubt will even happen because that's another can of worms to open up) then a lot of Asian PSN accounts are gonna be made along with a bunch of currency cards being sold.

Yeah, it's a shit version. Basically just the same two fields over and over and over again with a linear path and no environmental traps or hazards. There's rocks and shit that you can jump over, but absolutely no reason to actually do it - especially since they added these "halo" things which are basically just elevated standing platforms which put you in reach of weak points.

There's shit for content, you have to capture monsters like a fucking MonHun game (in Phantasy Star for fucks sake) - but it's only like 4 "boss" type enemies you can actually capture. You also bring back that cancer from PSU where you have to hunt materials to make your weapons. And to make matters worse, you don't have a unified save like you do in PSP2i, so you can't transfer items to your other characters. You have to hunt all materials for all items on each character individually.

So yeah… it's basically just Phantasy Star's attempt at making a MonHun game, but giving the player next to no content (it was made before PSO2 Ep II came out, and has less content Ep I PSO2) and having horrible scaling problems (even worse than v.2 Ultimate mode for the DC) because they just jammed an ultimate mode in post lvl 100 as a part of post-release content.

The art direction is really the only thing the game has really going for it.

The combat isn't as well fleshed out as PSP2i, it doesn't have the breadth of content, it doesn't have online multiplayer, you can't bring your other characters in as NPCs, you have to charge fucking techs like PSZero, weapon types are extremely limited - so you don't even get a great diversity in gameplay styles. To make matters worse, they basically just invented a new class which is all classes/all weapons/all techs in one - so you don't even have a good reason to play as anything other than the Braver class except to get skill unlocked.

It's a rushed shit show, and I'm sorry I wasted my money on it.

The nurse and the robo-secretary are pretty cute though. At least it has that.
