It’s Monday and there is actually some news worth discussing! There are a bunch of topics and in the interest of time, I figured I would compile them in a links post rather than go into great detail. Here goes:
- Ys: The Oath in Felghana is now on Steam thanks to XSeed! And what a reasonable price! Could this be the start of inexpensive localizations of niche JRPGs?
- Insight into how Nintendo pulled through the devastation of the March 11th disasters with a little help from ever positive Miyamoto.
- Nippon Ichi opens Prinny Club for gamers who prefer card-based games
- Square Enix is hiring for their new action RPG project. The hiring section features a teaser image which looks surprisingly original.
- Dark Souls II is out, hooray! Oh, wait…
- Journey is an amazing game with an amazing soundtrack. Listen to it for free here!
- Don’t do drugs kid, unless it’s the weekend or you had a hard day at work. Or you’re playing Journey.
- Mass Effect 2 ending flow chart (obvious spoiler alert)
- You can listen to clips of the various tracks to be featured in Theatrhythm Final Fantasy on the game’s Japanese website. Fuck yeah, Cosmo Canyon.
- Gaming Kickstarters just won’t quit — here is one for a turn-based strategy game heavily influenced by Norse mythology. Looks a little rough around the edges but the hand-drawn style is a nice change.
- Here is another called Americana — the minimum pledge earns you an NPC in the game which you may name and decide what he or she says!
Dragon’s Dogma is looking… pretty interesting, actually.
Etrian Odyssey IV will have 3D moving enemy sprites. They seem a bit ADD…
Episode 29 of My Fair Hunter is out!
