Touhou 13 - Ten Desires has been announced~!!!

The newest installment of the Touhou series,named "Ten Desires",is currently being developed as it seems.

We are also getting a sneak peek to a 4th playable character:

There is discussion for a trial,however when will the full game be released remains a mystery for now.


Replaying Legend of the Dragoon once again...

Everytime I get my hands on this game,I get that distinctive feeling of nostalgia.Like meeting a friend whom you haven't seen in years,or returning to your home town after a long period of absence.And each time,I just love it even more.

 Yeah,some would probably say "What do you find attractive in such an old game that's full of outdated graphics and cliche characters?".I can't expect from anyone to have the same feelings as me for LotD,but I do know that most would feel nostalgic if they suddenly heard a song they used to listen to ten years ago,or if they saw an episode of a series they used to watch when they were 5 years old.Yeah,that's the same feeling compelling me to play this game,even though it's my 4/5th time replaying it...

I must also recommend it to the less fortunate among you that didn't have the luck to start playing before the Playstation 1 was completely ditched,and probably ignored this gem for other games even if you do own a PS2.

Catherine will not be localized

Despite the popular hype of the recent puzzle game,Catherine,in Japan,it seems Atlus doesn't to release the game overseas.

Reportedly,Atlus US has said "Catherine is a Japan-only game and there are no plans for a NA release at this time. Sorry about that!".

Whether this is genuine or just some way of fooling around with the fans remains to be seen...

New Catherine patch lowers difficulty

After innumerable complaints from players about the new Atlus game,Catherine,being too hard,even on Easy,the company is working on a patch that will balance out the game a bit.

Noone knows when it will be released,but let's hope this doesn't bring up a new wave of complaints for the game being "too easy".

Dissidia 012 Duodecim Prologue Confirmed for the West

A representative from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has confirmed that the "Prologue" chapter for Dissidia 012 [duodecim] Final Fantasy will be released in the West ahead of the release of the Final Fantasy fighter sequel in a post on the official Playstation Blog.

Responding to a fan question in the comments about if and when the Dissidia "Prologus" chapter would be available on the European Playstation Store. Responding was Ross McGarth, part of the Playstation Store team in Europe. His response confirmed both a US and EU release, saying "the Prologus will be out at the same time as the US (at least that’s the date I have)."

The Prologus was released in Japan during the Square Enix 1st Production Department Premiere. It allows fans to take control of several of the chahracters from the final version of the game and fight through a chapter that leads up to the opening of the final version of Dissidia.

Those who play the Prologus chapter will carry their level, items and other bonuses over to the final game but also unlock a major exclusive bonus - Final Fantasy VII's Aerith. She won't be playable, but will be selectable as an 'Assist' character who appears in battle and performs a single action to aid you. She'll only be available in Dissidia to those who played Prologus.

Prologus cost 300 Yen in Japan - essentially amounting to a paid demo with some original story content. It's not too bad, mind - that only comes out at around £2.50 or $4. #

Poor Raidou.

Even though I was between Kaguya and Kuzunoha for the blog name part,Kaguya was the superior choice in the end.For the runner-up,I guess one picture will have to suffice.
