Does Bioshock have Japanese VA or is it subtitled? I wonder if it can get anywhere near the quality of the English voice over.

Agreed! Blows my little theory out of the water, which is good.

Now for the love of everything good and decent, NA release dates please!!!

Is Lord of Vermillion related to Sword of Vermillion for Genesis? Logic says yes, but I've never heard of it before.

The girl on the second page of the Fragile scan seems to be wearing nothing but a few pieces of cloth tied together.

I approve.

How would that be logical? Sword of Vermillion was by Sega. This game is by S/E.
Ah nevermind.

No. Sword of Vermillion was a Sega game, this is a SE game

I'm kinda liking that art style in Fragile, but at the same time, I'm still very "huh?" on the title. Can anybody read that flimmy flammy moonspeak and give us some of the juicy details?

Oh yeah, and rumours of DQV DS on 2008/1/22.
That'sjust way too closed. If it's real, they should start advertising right about ..... now.

Edit: I read it as FF, I'm dumb. I'll be sitting in the corner now.

Wow Nights on PS2? I thought they decided to make one now because of the Wii controller? You're telling me we could've played this same exact game since PS2 launch?

Nights on PS2 is real. Is it a straightforward port or are there some additions?
Sounds like a Sega Ages thing. So probably cleaned up graphics, stable framerate and not much else. Maybe Christmas Nights if we're lucky.

Is there a better scan of the Fragile page, any news on the developer?

"Into Dreams"

Not "Journey of Dreams"

ethelred said:
Fingers crossed it's the Venus & Braves team.
You know what would be pretty crazy?

Team Symphonia.

Yeah, the art style is pretty nice. By the way the logo looks for the game, it seems to me it might have elements of horror. Interesting. But I bet it is something completely different. :D

He's a pretty swell guy in my books anyway.

Hurray! Now I can play NiGHTS 1 & 2! Or at least it looks like it got a graphical upgrade and isn't part of Sega Ages, so it should be localized right?? I hope the DQV rumor is true as well! :D And it's always nice to see the 360 get more shumps. :)
