This will be the FINAL THREAD I create because I don't have passion for threads anymore like I used to with the old site /tools/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-frown.gif but feel free continue the discussion if U so wish /tools/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif

Blood of Bahamut
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_of_bahamut (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_of_bahamut)
I remember seeing screenshots in Game Informer I believe it was and I thought "this game is really cool" but sadly it never came over here (tears)

star ocean blue sphere

I have played the entire Game and enjoyed every bit of it. I REALLY hope SE localizes this they don't know how much I want an English text version of this game. nintendo 3DS or Playstation vita doesn't matter to me which platform its on they so long as they do it

Sent message to SE rep first but honestly I believe that EX and blue sphere threads should qualify because they are part of the star ocean universe

Awesome game for the Super Nintendo. Sadly I only played the ROM with the english patch, but it would've been great in the US.

Take the survey for Lightning Returns Final Fantasy 13 that SQ recently put up (link below) and include word or two about Final Fantasy XIII Versus, Final Fantasy Type-0, and Bravely Default Flying Fairy to show our concerns and support for those games. These games need more attention, especially the last two since they are currently Japan-only games and have had no concrete plans to be released in the west. Show some support for the titles that deserve it!

Mmmmm...I'm not against the idea but would it really bring the needed attention to those games?

Its the thought that counts. If SQ does listen, then it could work out for everyone. If they don't, it is at least reassuring that there are other fans who care about those titles as much as you do.

SE, you really need to start releasing games on the same date world-wide. This multiple release date business doesn't work in the internet age. It's not that I and many other people can't wait a couple more months for a game to come out; it's that there are some people who CAN'T wait, and not only can they not wait to play/watch the game, they can't wait to tell the whole world about whichever game it may be.

Let's take the most recent experience I've had as an example. Lightning Returns was released in Japan, and suddenly there are livestreams and gameplay videos up all over the place. That didn't bother me, because videos are generally easy to avoid. However, what was not easy to avoid was the screenshot of a group of people in what I assumed was the ending that I bumped into while scrolling down my Tumblr Dashboard last week. Needless to say, I was ready to kill someone for spoiling the end for me. It would be one thing if the game had already been released in North America, but release of this particular game is still about two months out. And now that I think about it, something similar happened to me with the release of XIII-2. That's completely ridiculous. I see every day people complaining about how they've had something about this game spoiled for them because people are jerks.

No, SE doesn't have the power to control the actions of people, but a single release date would certainly curb this madness.

tl;dr: Not releasing games on a single date world-wide makes it easier for the jerks who can't keep their mouths shut to ruin the game for everyone else.
