Is this a shock? I can't possibly see how a sequel to a game that scored well (PSO) that improves on it in every way would be ill-received.

Not that Famitsu scores are worth much.

No, this Blood+ is a visual novel adventure that ties into various points in the anime series and fills in side stories and gaps.

PSU offline is pretty entertaining. That first chapter is a big turnoff however. Currently on chapter 5 here.

I really hope Sega can churn out 4-5 games in about a year. That would be quite impressive given their recent record.

Sonic and the Secret Rings
Super Monkey Ball:BB
Yakuza
PSU
Yakuza 2?

But then again, it's Sega. So I won't get my hopes up.

Looks like PSU first shipment will be around 200k. Not bad, sounds like on par with Xenosaga 3 and Persona 3 numbers.

Guess... :lol
I really wanna try this game, when is the PC version coming out,
or is it coming out at the sametime?

And is PSU an actual MMO??
That's the only way I'd pay to play online.
Having Diablo type online shouldn't require monthly fees.

Play-Asia's been shipping since Monday/Tuesday. Shouldn't you be used to this by now? Living in Japan means you get Japanese games last! :D

Seeing as I want to play this on 360 with friends, I have to wait for the US version.

How is the soundtrack, by the way? The previous games have always offered some fantastic tunes and I'm hoping for another great entry in the series.

Cool, glad to see a good score for PSU.

I doubt I'll come even close to loving it as much as PSO because I'm not going to do the online mode -- I'm not going to spend money for it, and PSO's glory days for me were when it was free on the Dreamcast (gaming bliss :(...) -- however, I'm thrilled it's got a deep offline story-mode, so I'm definitely looking foward to it.

havent' been following much of PSU lately, but is the 360 version scheduled to hit side by side with the PS2 version in North America? Its still slated for fall of 06, right?

I'm down for the 360 version of PSU!

According to EBGAMES, X360, PS2, and PC version all ship on October 24.

Kinda late, but I was checking what Kengo 3 scored on PS2 since 3 was actually supposed to be pretty good/solid and it got a 32/40. So it looks like famitsu isn't anti-Kengo and it's just that this version sucks >_<

Oh shit, 360 on the lock (because I love Famitsu so).

I hope the JGaf team chimes in on how the single-player stacks up. Hope real impressions come soon.

Yeah, kengo 3 was an amazing game. I think Japanese people are just anti 360. If this came out on PS3 (which it will) I predicted 8's and 9's.

Eh, I dunno 25 is pretty damn low and they've given plenty of X360 games 30+/40.

I cancelled my pre-order for it and I'll just wait for some impressions from you guys.

Hold on a moment, is PSUs release date today? My local Big Tiger has had it on sale for well over a week... from the 22nd I think, Den Den traders don't usually break release dates.

Street date was the 31st I believe. Places weren't supposed to break the street dates since anyone who logged online before then would get banned (supposedly). Of course that's assuming segalink was working >_>

I'm wondering if the 360 version will come out at the same time as the PC/PS2 versions here. I know places have all 3 listed for 10/24, but I'm skeptical of that date, and the fact that the 360 version isn't even out in Japan (does it have a date?).

Understatement of the year. It's positively atrocious.
