Many people have been supporting the efforts of Operation Rainfall (a group who has been actively pursuing answers and attempting to persuade Nintendo of America into action on Xenoblade, Pandora’s tower and Last Story localization.) there link can be found here http://oprainfall.blogspot.com/ .
However despite all our efforts Nintendo of America has chosen the casual Iphone app on your big screen loving gamers over the people who made Nintendo what it was today. Yeah sure Nintendo is doing great in Europe but you know what Nintendo? Europe used to not even have a market for games especially JRPGS, almost none were sent there. If it weren’t for North Americans also supporting these games Nintendo wouldn’t be as big as it is world wide it would have stayed in Japan and small areas of Asia. So Screw you Nintendo for Screwing us. I know this is probably a ploy to get Ninendo of Europe to do all your hard translation work so you can just port it to North America but outright denying us Xenoblade while releasing Last Story is SICK! I hope the developers Mistwalker never work with you again since your holding their amazing product back. If these games are never released here I might as well boycott Nintendo. Sure we get amazing RPGs on the DS but those are usually published by other companies and only have to get hardware rights from Nintendo. This message is Nintendo our right slapping us RPG gamers in the face. SCREW YOU NINTENDO! ------------------RANT OVER.
Whew, after taking a breather from that I’m back. That wasn’t the only news I had today but it was something I had to get off my chest. Anyways, in other news Final Fantasy XI is not only alive and kicking but is getting new content and new spells all the time. I’m starting to wonder why Square-Enix doesn’t just release an HD patch for this and market it seriously again. This spell looks pretty serious though. I might have to keep an eye out on this game again. Not that I would betray the perfect Final Fantasy XIV that is!
So for those of you interested in the new tales game on the horizon (Tales of Xillia), there has been some news lately about it. DLC has been announced for the game which will consist of swimwear costume packs of the characters. It was originally thought that these costumes would be unlockable in the game just like they have been in past games but it appears that NamcoBandai is a profit organization after all….man I miss the 90s. Furthermore, where this game was thought to be a PS3 exclusive an Xbox 360 version will now be released, and there is a chance that the 360 one will have the DLC included (Rumor). Lastly it has been noted that the main character of this game says things that are very embarrassing in Japanese. I’m not quite sure how this will translate into English but it should be interesting.
If you understand Japanese any check the dialogue out for yourself. If not then enjoy the good voice acting.
