Review: Tales of Xillia 2

Tales of Xillia 2 is the Newest Tales of game on the West market on the PS3 Originally released in Japan on November 1, 2012, August 19th 2014 and August 22nd 2014 for Europe. My time i have spent with Xillia 2 has been amazing. Today i would like to take the time to talk about Xillia 2 and give you a peek in to the story of this wonderful JRPG for the Ps3. Now before i start to dig in give a brief over look of the story and how combat and control all the goodies of this game, without giving away spoilers. I am a Tales of fan. I have enjoyed every tales of game that has been released in the west as well the ones that did not come to the west. Xillia is a Direct Sequel to Tales of Xillia . Xillia 2 is only taking place 1 year after the events of Xillia, people who have yet to play Xillia are recommended to play and finish Xillia first or watch the recap video that Bandai has made to bring player up to date with the story of Tales of Xillia .

Review : Danganronpa 2 Goodbye Despair (PSVita)

In the past year it seems that the vita has become home to many localizations of Japanese titles. With how successful the localisation of Danganropna was, it was obvious the Danganropna 2 wouldn't be too far behind. Again this title was only released in Japan on PSP in 2012 and has followed it predecessor into the west onto the Vita.

News: 3DS Nintendo Direct Roundup

Here's a short roundup of what was announced during Nintendo's latest 3DS Direct.

Yakuza 5 Campaign UPDATED 29/08/2014

Dear reader,

If I may could I direct your attention to this petition here, it is a petition requesting that Sega localize Ryu Ga Gotoku 5 or Yakuza 5 as it would be know here.

For any of you familiar with myself or members of the blog we hold the Ryu Ga Gotoku series in especially high regard, myself I am currently working on 2 related articles with more of a series planned for the future. 

So far all Sega have had to say on the subject of this and the latest title (Ishin) is that there is no word on them, they have said in the past there is no budget for it as the team are very small that create this masterpieces. 

A rumour back in Feb of this year was that ATLUS are actually translating Yakuza 5 for Sega but since that leaked it was neither confirmed or denied which is a shame as that would be outstanding news for a series that seems to be forgotten.

The most common theory is Sega has dropped localisations for the series after Dead Souls & Binary Domain didn't meet sales figures, this seems daft as Dead Souls was a spin off that is commonly thought of as the weakest entry and Binary Domain though an absolutely outstanding game, was held back due to generic graphic design and lack of advertisement.

A little research into this shows that Yakuza: Dead Souls sold 550,000 copies worldwide, looking around for figures for Yakuza 4 and it's estimated that it sold 0.90 million units worldwide, the differences between spin off and main are very apparent.

So please click the link, sign the petition and show Sega there is still a strong market for Ryu Ga Gotoku!
