  1. I've been fooling around with Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney. I'm a big fan of both series, so dipping into a game which features both of them brings a big smile to my face. It's basically like playing both games at once... the game is split into several chapters, each chapter going either down the Professor Layton route with the gathering of picarats and solving of puzzles, or the Ace Attorney route, complete with courtroom cross-interrogation action. The story is so-so, but what surprises me is how well Phoenix Wright is integrated into the 3D environment of the game. Since the AA ser
  2. I'm originally from Iceland, but I've lived in Japan for over four years now.
  3. I don't know which Japan you are referring to, definitely the Japan I've been living in for the past five years or so. I work for a major gaming publisher, surrounded by hardcore gamers from morning to evening every day. Of the 300 or so people in my entire department, you can count proficient English speakers on one hand and still have fingers left (myself included in the count). Hardly anyone considers even picking up Western games unless they are localized, even the most hardcore of them, unless the dialogue is severely limited. PE being a very dialogue heavy adventure would require ful
  4. I have a hard time taking my character in Saint's Row: The Third seriously...
  5. Finally finished Uncharted: Golden Abyss today. It was a nice game but to say that the boss battles are underwhelming is an understatement. They're 100% QTE that use the touch screen. I bought a copy of Super Stardust Delta (the Vita version of Super Stardust HD). It's really, really addictive... really good. I can see myself spending hours upon hours playing it. My only gripe is that the only way to look at the high score list (and get me on it!) is to connect by wi-fi, which I unfortunately do not have access to.
  6. I've been playing Uncharted: Golden Abyss on the Vita... at chapter 26 in I'm enjoying it immensely. It's a tad longer than most Uncharted games chapter wise, but each chapter is bite sized (less than 30 minutes), so you end up with around 10 hours of gameplay in total if you skip about half of the puzzles/collectibles. It may not be as well written as Uncharted 2 and 3, but the gameplay is true to the series and you get attached to the characters in the game. I highly recommend it to anyone thinking about buying the Vita in February.
  7. I've bought Swords & Soldiers HD, Defense Grid: The Awakening and Orcs Must Die! so far, but only had time to play the last one. It's really good, though.
  8. This just sounds so wrong. Well, the Katamari series has been always been wrong on so many levels. That's what makes it so special. Anyway, I bought Uncharted: Golden Abyss today after I heard it had full English support (couldn't stand the thought of listening to Drake speak Japanese). So far, so good.
  9. Been playing Touch My Katamari and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on the Playstation Vita. I'm really enjoying both titles. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is especially impressive, the graphics are very good for a handheld computer AND it runs smoothly at 60fps.
  10. I've played the beta for about 2 hours (it unlocked 1am local time). Although I was expecting it to be similar to World of WarCraft, I didn't expect it to be exactly the same. Kind of disappointed that, at least during your early levels, it is pretty much just a carbon copy of World of WarCraft.
  11. Yup, it has a native support for the Xbox 360 controller, so you shouldn't encounter any problems. I've been super busy the past few weeks, but I still have found time to pour 10 hours into Skyrim. I'm amazed with just how expansive and FUN it is. I didn't particularly care for Oblivion, but Skyrim fixes a lot of the things I disliked about Oblivion. When I heard they were getting rid of the stats I was kind of disappointed, but I have to admit that I kind of like how they handle character progression in it, with the skills. Now, if only they had spears and polearms... Looking forward
  12. After two weeks of excruciating wait my copy of Dark Souls has finally arrived from the UK. Two weeks for one box in priority mail? It's even further to my home country (Iceland) and it only takes FIVE days from there. I wish the royal mail people would have delivered it straight into my hands so I could spit on them for being the slowest mail service I know. I finished the tutorial (Undead Asylum) and ventured a bit into the Undead Burg. Unfortunately I won't be able to invest much time into it in the coming days, but I look forward to sitting down for extended periods in the coming weeks
  13. I live in Japan and understand Japanese which helps me overcome the linguisting barrier forced upon me by Japanese releases.
  14. Already got it. Haven't played ICO yet, but I'll never go back to the PS2 versions. Ever. Shadow of the Colossus plays so smooth... but apart from that nothing has changed, not even the interface.
  15. Dungeon Siege III has finally been unlocked in Japan. Unfortunately, this happened when I was in the middle of final exams, but now that I'm finished I have time to play games (until I go out of town for the summer vacation, that is). Long story short, I've put a couple of hours into it and I'm really enjoying it. I wasn't a big fan of the Dungeon Siege series, but I'm enjoying both the story as well as the combat system in this one. I've also been playing a bit of Cthulhu Saves the World. It's an interesting take on the Lovecraft horror, to say the least. Totally worth the money I spent o
