    Curious about that last scene.

    Start of Day eight, HUGE FRICKING SPOILERS
    Did that stabbing occur regardless of alignment? I was on the angel path, and... ouuch.
    Wait, wasn't that in the trailer?

    The trailer shows things but to no extent do you have any idea just how crazy it really is. Without context, unlike the Nier trailers, these trailers mean nothing. You will see.

    Welp

    Since I'm guessing Ico/SOTC isn't actually coming in April as initially hoped (because I'm damn sure we would have heard something about it by now), I went ahead and canceled the pre-order and put down on this so GameStop would be sure to get enough copies in.

    Went with the 360 version...I know it's technically a little bit inferior but I saw comparisons and they wouldn't bother me at all, and I prefer the box art/Achievements.

    It's really close.


    And I'll try to finish it tonight. Apparently what I thought was done wasn't. Not by a mile.

    By the way. Gametrailers uploaded an import preview today.

    DO NOT VIEW IT. SPOILERS. SOOO many spoilers. Major stuff. Horrible choice on their part.

    Really not surprised. She fits the role perfectly.

    Edit: She could totally play both. Normal voice for Catherine and her Lust voice for Katherine :O

    I'm assuming that the fact that the actors are talking about their roles means they're gonna be credited, which is very very awesome. I've worked with Troy and Laura both, and they deserve all the credit they can get and then some

    Good lord, what a rush. I haven't been through a finale that intense since finishing Ninja Gaiden on the NES.

    It wouldn't have been nearly as fun had I played on Easy, that's for sure. Pure rewarding difficulty.

    End credits all in English. Well, that saves someone some time. :P

    Ending thoughts:
    Not sure which Katherine ending I got, but I'm happy with it.

    I loved the ending images of Vincent shopping for her. Yeah, she's controlling, but she's nice at heart.

    I think it's a good match.


    And, uh, Master was a little predictable. :P Come on, he's voiced by Norio Wakamoto. Dead giveaway.

    I think one of you need to confirm what I heard said about a certain character.


    Major spoilers.
    It's never confirmed or denied. But what is confirmed in the True Lovers ending is that Erica is actually a transsexual named Eric, whom went to high school with Vincent. Toby begs for his "youth" back from her. XD

    3 of us so far. It is doable. They just don't like hard games. I mean. It's like with DMC 3. Their Normal was our easy. And our Normal was their hard.

    Source is her actually. It was on this podcast that's going for 24 hours to donate for Japan.

    I wish I could show you but it isn't recorded. They're having a ton of voice actors/actresses for guests and she was on and while saying who she does she said she's also going to be in the new Catherine game as Katherine with a K.

    She also said she was given the ok to talk about that stuff so....hm. Surprised we haven't heard much yet.

    Maybe they're recording and will post it in chunks later in time. J Michael Tatum is on right now but I'm sleeping after this one. I'm going to be at work during Steve Blum. So sad.

    Katherine has a bit more of a thicker heavier voice; typical mature woman. Catherine's voice is higher pitched and has a lot more energy to it, making her sound like she's in her younger twenties, even though she's a bit older than that.

    I'm all for games from Japan getting a release in the West, but this one seems like a stretch. The demo consisted of some awkward moments on a date, and then some gameplay that could best be described as Elevator Action without the elevators and without the action.
