[QUOTE] If El Shaddai was super cheap and I had lots of spare time, I'd play it, but its particular balance of beauty and mediocrity doesn't do it for me. [/QUOTE] Agreed, that's exactly how I feel. It sucks, and I really wish the timing of its US release had been different. I want to encourage the release of games like it that can be beautiful, rather than bland, but... argh, I just don 't have the cash. [QUOTE] On top of Black Rock Shooter, Xillia and Dynasty Warriors 7, I got Gears of War 3 today, so I'm pretty booked. GOW has always been too manly for me, but I'm hoping now that I can at least pick a girl, it won't make me grow chest hair and/or a pair of cantaloupe-sized testicles. [/QUOTE] You're braver than I am-- I tried about 20 minutes of the first Gears game and it was enough to convince me to stay far away. It's not that I dislike it because I have that whole East vs West thing-- I just found it to be completely unappealing, from the design to the story to the gameplay. As it is I'm still up to my ears in DW7 and Black Rock Shooter (thanks for the recommendation, I love it!) and the DW7 expansion is coming before too long. Plus I think Catherine still has another play in it for me as well. [QUOTE] Even though it's hardly news, I thought I would point out that Golden Fantasia X's demo is allegedly available in the X360 Japan store. Anybody try it so far? I probably won't have time before the weekend, since it's hard to bother with going to all the trouble when I don't especially like the character design or anything. Although, it is a 2D fighter and all. A played a bit of the PC version and thought it would make for a pretty decent game if it had a little better balance and a few more characters. The music and spritework were really good, but the game just wasn't quite there. I'm hoping that the 360 version ironed things out nicely, but I don't know if I can justify the purchase. I mean, I doubt it'll be good to play online, since most players will be in Japan and there probably won't be many to begin with. If you don't have friends who are interested and/or you're not big into Umineko, it just doesn't seem worth it. Maybe if we were in the middle of a 2D fighter drought, but that isn't really the case. [/QUOTE] True. Plus it will be astronomically priced for the US market. I'll pay it for a Cave shooter, but not for a mediocre 2D fighter. Now if you had told me it was fantastic, that might be a different matter.
