Keep telling yourself that bud


I'd rather be telling myself it was a spin off starring Shinobu.

So it's not a port then. It's got tons of extra content. Wii version was the beta version. Too bad for early adopters, I guess.

Wait so RE5's DLC only totals $10? For the supposed 2-3 hours of gameplay that actually sounds quite good...

Let me ask you guys something: if this game is in fact being made in order to solely increase the Japanese fanbase and to do better in Japanese sales, then why is there a 360 version?

I don't know.

How do franchises get popular?

I don't think it's debatable that No More Heroes is Suda most mainstream project. With that and its alleged poor gameplay aside, It seems that this would have been a logical step to take.

Hey guys, Halo 3: ODST was announced at the Tokyo Game Show. It also features an actor from Firefly. I think this clearly shows that Microsoft is using the title SOLELY to expand the Halo audience in Japan and probably has no intention of ever releasing it in the West.

The actual Famitsu article says Suda hates the HD NMH, which is only being released in the Nara Prefecture, and wants to marry the Wii.

People have got to be kidding themselves if they think a PS3/360 version would not be planned for stateside release given the fact that both the IP fanbase and both install bases are larger here than they are in Japan. And if in fact this is some kind of port with added content, then the localization (outside of the new content itself) is almost a non-factor. I don't see any logic in this being a Japan-only release.

Very few do, and only for the most popular games, and still they're almost always made in anticipation of a western release.

You don't think its debatable that No More Heroes is Suda's most mainstream project? Are you living in some kind of fantasy land where Suda has made something more mainstream than NMH? Or did you merely misphrase that statement?

Either way, releasing the game to the west would only help make the franchise more popular than not releasing it at all.

NMH 360 better be built for the ground up. I was hoping this was the Natal game Suda was hinting at a while back. I really wanna see a cel-shaded action game for something more powerful than the Wii.

I guess at the very least this will serve as the groundwork for the third game.

I do think those DBZ games for the PS3 and 360 look pretty good.

I'd just like to see something HD cel-shaded with a competent art direction. Say what you will about Toriyama, but his art design looks identical across every media, and every series he's touched.

It appears I responded to your post without really reading it. Because those DBZ games are fighting games... yeah.
