    I’m so happy this is coming to the west…like you guys don’t even know.

      I’m still waiting for this to show-up on Amazon before I decide to take the leap of faith and pre-order at Square’s store.

        I ordered from there, not too happy about it.

        I hope they change their mind and don’t do it exclusively there.

          I know right…Its so user unfriendly and combersome to order from Square themselves…I’m relocating next month and sent an email to their support team trying to see if I can change the address of my order. I’m still waiting on a response….

          With Amazon alls I have to do is fix my account infos… It really sucks that they decided to make it a SE store exclusive :(

        Yeah I feel you on that. I’m probably not going to pre-order till we get a firm release date.

    Ugh, look at that aliasing mess. Seriously, it’s like Japanese developers don’t even acknowledge the existence of MLAA and how well it works with the Cell. And based on the last gameplay footage, this game is full of screen-tearing and even that doesn’t stop its frame rate from dipping like mad, even though it targets 30fps. Agh! This looks horrible, absolutely horrible! GODDAMN IT! I’M LOSING MY MIND WAITING FOR MY PRE-ORDER TO ARRIVE, WHICH IS ANOTHER WHOLE FREAKING YEAR!

      Calm down, Annie.

      • Anime10121

        Brah, you dont wanna tell Annie to calm down…have you SEEN this chick when she’s upset? She laughs maniacally and kills… Again, you dont wanna make Annie angry. :P

    DAY ONE! Let this game stand as the opposer of next gen graphic-whoring and be a beacon of passionate developement rather than shallow surface dwelling!

    Do you pick the cake that looks the best? Or the shoddy one you KNOW has the best filling?

    • bloodiOS

      As long that it’s Drakengard, I don’t even care if it’s a bucket of fecal matters, I’ll gladly dip my hands all the way to its bottom.

      • LunarHaven

        hellyeah! Looking forward to this one.
