    No way, Tony Oliver! I loved him as Hibiki Tokai in Vandread! He seems to be more voice directing than voice acting these days, though.

    As Im sure you know Valkyria Chronicles 3 is coming to PSP not ps3 but thats not why im posting

    Regarding Rising Star (and you lack of knowledge of them) - they have in many ways risen (see what i did there) to be the PAL equivalent to ATLUS USA by translating niche titles to our territories. Without them us Ozzies (and Brits and others) would not have seen the likes of : No more heroes, Fragile Dreams, Half minute hero, harvest moon:tree tranquility, muramassa, little kings story, baroque or contact (amongst others)

    As for rune factory 2 - i did not buy the first one locally becasue i knew the US had #2, and with reports that #2 is basically a directors cut of #1 I saw no point in getting both - and imported away. With 3 now out in japan I feel they may have missed the boat on this one. Still, happy that someone is bringing the niche titles down under (and across the sea).......

    Edit: and Free Yggdra Union Offered being a US only offer also disapoints especially given the recent back-track.

    Thanks emech! Sounds like they are a definitely influence in the PAL territories.

    I feel for you poor PAL people, especially with the news that the 3DS may be region-locked.

    Eep! I need to catch up with the podcasts. How can you keep coming out with podcasts without my expert commentary to help you along?

    Reggie said the decision hadn't been finalized in an interview. Kotaku I think?

    He said the company was still determining whether games for the machine would be region-locked, so as to only play, like most console games, in systems sold in certain regions of the world. He noted that downloadable games for the DSi were the first games for Nintendo's DS line to be region-locked.

    Holding a TWEWY meet in the same area as the DQ9 people sounds like a good idea, but it's NOT. You can only get 10 ESPers, Civvies, and Aliens at a time, and with that many civvies, you'd be lucky to get any ESPers at all.

    I find it hilarious that Sony's moving away from region locking (PS3 and PSP games are region free, you just need to get the cards for each region's store) and Nintendo's moving to make even locked stuff.
