Thanks, Cap'n! :)

A lot of these haven't been posted and it's been long time since we've had one of these threads.

Professor Layton is Wi-Fi? Wow, can this game get any cooler?

And Rain, judging by the trailer, seems to be a supernatural tactical game. Splinter Cell mixed with Darkwatch, so to speak.

I have a feeling this game will sell really well :( Characters design is taken out from some girl manga if not based on it.
It's Tokimeki Memorial. There's even an anime of it these days, though predictably it's extremely silly and only really worth watching for the nice character designs.

So buying this. Hoobastank and Gwen Stefani can suck my dick.
Hoobastank is in the Japanese version. Have a look at their artist of the week page on the official site. Like I said in the other thread about the Japanese version, maybe Miz is actually responsible for the some the "crap" music in the game, and not Disney?

Fuyu sonata pachinko is a ****ing super popular pachinko machine here, but I doubt anyone's gonna buy that.
Ahhh that explains it. Bae + Pachinko = it prints money. Coming to the PS2 is just icing on the cake at this point...

Is that Higurashi for the PS2? All the chapters? Anything new? I guess the big red triangular logo is an M rating warning?
Well, since GAF was atypically unhelpful I had to turn to wikipedia:
wiki said:
A PS2 port is projected to be released as Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Matsuri (&#12402;&#12368;&#12425;&#12375;&#12398;&#12394;&#12367;&#38915;&#12395;&#31085;, When Cicadas Cry) by Alchemist in 2007. [...] The PS2 port differs from the original game series in that it will include full voice acting, redrawn CGs, and integration of the Question arcs into a single branching storyline.

It has been announced the PS2 port will include the first seven PC arcs (Matsuribayashi-hen is excluded) and three original "Final" arcs - Taraimawashi-hen, Tsukiotoshi-hen and Miotsukushi-hen. After the original seven arcs are cleared, the first two "Final" arcs will be available. Furthermore, when these two "Final" arcs are cleared, the epilogue, Miotsukushi-hen, will be unlocked.
Best console game story 2007 confirmed.

What is this Konami game?



I believe that this is the new Tokimeki Memorial franchise spinoff, Girls Side, game for the DS.

It is about this 'basic' girl trying to win over the hearts of various hansome dudes.

And there is going to be another game in the series called "2nd Kiss."

It is for the young girls who played Nintendogs but discovered boys.

For people who like anime and haven't already seen it, I highly recommend checking out the Higurashi anime, it's some really good psychological thriller type stuff. And also good if you like blood and violence too.

Please, please, please get localized :(
Fat chance unless they cut out all the voice or something. Eternia only even made it in Europe probably since they already had the past localization to work with.
