I will buy it, since I got bored of the PSP iterations that were almost the same for some years. This game will surely sell in the majority of Europe. I am waiting to win the Greek Superleague with Panathinaikos and drop Olympiacos on the second place.

@artemisthemp The regional digital stores is another relic of the past that should go away. Sony should make a unified store for USA and Europe. It is surely hard to do it but other companies have done it. I am tired of waiting months for localizations of rpg games in Europe. The problem is not as big as the previous years but still exists for titles like the Vita YS title.



belmont commented on Wilbell's Magical Services Don't Come Cheap in...:

I don't think I will spend extra cash on characters since they don't add extra scenes. I may buy extra dungeons though.

I preordered the game. It may be my final PS3 game if we don't have any surprise localizations.



belmont commented on Review: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (PlaySt...:

The first LOS was a fun game but it was a God of War game, not a Castelevania game. Even Mirror of Fate seemed like a 2D God of War.

Anyway since, as it is somewhat obvious, I am a fan and longtime player of the series I will get the game to see the conclusion of the trilogy.



belmont commented on Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Puts the PS3 ...:

I enjoyed this game on my Vita. The only bad think that is super frustrating is that this game has the worst map ever for a metroidvania game. Seems that they fixed it. Too bad it is not cross-buy. We can assume that no one bought the Vita/3DS version.



belmont commented on Review: Toukiden: The Age of Demons (PlayStati...:

Just bought it! Surely I would want a Metal Gear or proper Silent Hill or a new Final Fantasy but the "da vita has no games" is surely wrong especially if someone likes Japanese games. I look forward to ys next week and blazblue sometime later.



belmont commented on You're Not Going to Be Able to Watch EastEnder...:

@chazaroonie Yeah the screen and the overall unit pales in comparison to Vita but since Game Gear was my first handheld I have childhood memories of it with games like Sonic, Mortal Kombat, Nba jam and many more. Except the TV turner the only other accessory I had was the official AC adapter. It may be just nostalgia but I still love my Game Gear.



belmont commented on You're Not Going to Be Able to Watch EastEnder...:

@chazaroonie We still have analogue signal here so I still open the TV turner sometimes, for fan. I use the Game Gear that has the working screen with external speakers (even though it has no sound speakers and headphones work) and, of course, external power! I tried hunting down a used Game Gear but all that I found have this sound problem.



belmont commented on Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster Is Looking Bet...:

Best written article in 2014 so far :-)

Anyway I am still undecided if I go for Vita or PS3. The collectors edition is PS3 only and goes for ~45 euros while the core game goes for ~40 euros. I obviously want both. The PS3 version for collecting reasons and the Vita one to play it. Both of them look like FF machines and I like it since it is one of my favourite series. However I want to save money because I preordered a PS4 so I may end up not buying it on release or go Vita only.



belmont commented on Pachter: Nintendo Should Publish Its Games on ...:

I got a Wii U this summer for 200 euros and the only game I have,excluding VC, is an Avengers fighting game. The problem is that most Nintendo games don't appeal to me any more. I got tired of Mario that is mostly the same game for years and from the bland plot and setting in Zelda. In fact the Wii U feels outdated with clunky and slow OS. The only game I really look forward is this X rpg. I really don't see the console recovering. The upcoming games are for Nintendo fans and most of them already have the console.

On 3DS the situation is better although some of my favourite games received an HD edition since no one bought them. I keep buying jap games for it like Layton, Ace Attorney and Pokemon (the only Ninty title I still follow) but after them not so much. Clearly 3DS has a bad screen resolution for today's standards. I really look forward to Layton vs Ace Attorney and some similar jap games that are coming.



belmont commented on Talking Point: Do the December NPD Results Fla...:

I ordered a PS4 yesterday in the biggest retailer in Greece. I will wait for 3 to 4 weeks for it to arrive!! This is crazy.

I think that the focus should be Japan and Europe where Sony is traditionally more successful. I don't think ignoring small, but loyal countries, is good. Seems that those that supported you are ignored in favour of the US. However XB1 is not available in the majority of smaller European countries. Retailers here are not sure about the release date but they already have XB1 games on the shelves!

European nations like Greece surely don't have a major impact but they are somewhat loyal to Sony for a variety of reasons. And sometimes it is good to give priority to loyal fans.



belmont commented on Review: Don't Starve (PlayStation 4):

Remember the Lost in Blue series on the original DS? They were some of my favourite games of the console. From what I read this game somewhat reminds me this games with the obvious difference that in those there was nothing random generated.



belmont commented on Soapbox: Sony Is Depriving Players of the Opti...:

I want a 64GB card but they are not sold in EU. I have never ordered abroad, with the exception of UK. I am not sure I want to buy one right now but, nevertheless, can anyone suggest me a reliable store to order it?

Good article. I want as much PSP, PSone and Vita stuff with me as possible. For example Vita can be turned to a Final Fantasy machine after the release of 10 and 10-2 HD but it will fill a very big portion of a 32GB card.

Another strange setback is the stupid 100 icon limit that needs to be addressed. However I still think Vita needs proper iterations of Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, God of War, GTA et al to sell more consoles.



belmont commented on Is Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Biting PS4? ...:

This highly reminds of the situation with Mirror of Fate. They said that they made the game in HD and downscaled it to the 3DS before the release of the game. They somehow confirmed the PS3 port at some point. And I was stupid enough to buy it day one by spending 50 euros and playing the inferior version since only some months later they released it on PS3 for 13 euros. The game was a strange 2D God of War clone, not a true Castlevania game.



belmont commented on Streetkix Freestyle Aims to Kick the PSP Back ...:

Seems PSP still sells in some developing countries and enjoys a lot of new content in Japan. Since Square ignored Type-0 the only next major PSP release I am aware of is Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter. Is being localized by xseed. The last retail game till now is Pro 2014.



belmont commented on You're Free to Try and Decipher This Conceptio...:

Never heard of this but a traditional cliché j-rpg is always welcome, especially on Vita.

Knowing Atlus however it is sure that (except Ghostlight or RSG get the rights) we will see it in Europe in three years or something. They still somehow ignore the region even though publishing in psn should be easy for a company like them.
