    Lightning the most beautiful character ever created

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      I’d take Yuna,Tifa,Aerith,Rikku,Fang over her and that’s just from the FF7-13.

    • KingOptimusOrigins111

      Ugh, Yuck!!! Lightning. Tifa > Lightning

      • Boobs FTW

        • fireemblembeast

          (Looks like we’ll be having some fun with dislike buttons. If this was youtube, your comment would be the top one!)
          Anyways, I don’t play FF and I looked up “Tifa” on my iPod and it autocorrected her name to “Tits”…..dafuq

    • InsaneChronos

      To me, KOS-MOS is much better than other fiction girls :3

      • Kobracon

        I would have to agree there…..god bless Hentai artists that also do games sometimes.

      • Lynn Mooney

        the games for Xenosaga are amazing! ^^ KOS-MOS is awesome!
        all so very glad for PDf :D

      • Budgiecat

        She is a moe blob

      • zakou

        Love Xenosaga and KOS-MOS but Lightning is way more belivable in terms of none-fiction character (i know both are fictional lol).

        I mean she looks so human xD on the other hans i would love to have KOS-MOS as a weapon :D because that’s what she basicly is.

      • PrinceHeir

        hell yeah KOS-MOS FTW!!!

    • Kobracon

      She certainly is pretty.

    • Kazziyan

      I agree. :D

  • why does modern warfare 3 say square enix o.o

    • Because Square Enix published the game in Japan…

      • That should help Square Enix’s revenue. I assume shooters aren’t very popular in Japan yet? Kinda how RPGs take the backseat to shooters here in the US.

        • It probably has something to do with ‘awareness’… Square Enix has the marketing power similar to Nintendo in a way..

        • Kazziyan

          Surprisingly, they are received quite well I hear.

          • Budgiecat

            Yet no Japanese developer dares make one

        • Luna Kazemaru

          Yeah umm you are pretty wrong there.

  • Wow glad to see SDR2 is on the list…. Can’t wait for oren’s LP of it so I can understand the moon speak/rune lol.

    And some1 plz release it in english officially…. Welp I can live with the LP atm…. Also, there a translation patch of the 1st game in the making so yeah?

  • Kobracon

    Glad to see Journey on that list. Seeing that restores my faith in humanity.

  • Kazziyan

    Nice to see FFXIII-2 in the User choice! Well deserved and Hatsune Miku Project Diva f~ Great choices!

  • MosquitoLemon

    As a Gundam fan, I want to get Extreme VS, but I didn’t like Gundam VS Gundam or Next at all -_-

    • HeatPhoenix

      EXVS is the best Gundam ever made, in my opinion. On a close level with Senki but for the other side of Gundam games.

      Though, if you didn’t like Next Plus, this probably won’t be for you either.

      • MosquitoLemon

        Yeah, I much preferred the more ‘realistic’ spin of Gundam vs Zeta and Fed vs Zaft vs the cartoony take of the new VS games. The best Gundam games ever made, though, are the SD G Generation titles, sadly locked to PSP as of late.

        • HeatPhoenix

          I wouldn’t call it cartoony. It’s more like the recent animes than any of the other games. Gundam is a collection of stories about Super Robots, nowadays, so EXVS fits riiight in.

          And as much as I like SD Gundam G Gen games, they’ve all been nearly the exact same since Spirits/Wars. Why bother.
          They’re also ridiculously easy since the PSX days.

  • I’m really glad to see XIII-2 win some awards. That won’t be happening in America at any of our award shows. Those will be ruled by Modern Warfare 3, Black Ops 2, and Halo 4….

    • Budgiecat

      ‘MERICUH! *Fires guns into the sky*

  • new_tradition

    I hope there’s a special on a Vita Bundle for boxing day. I’m trying to resist, but I really wanna play P4G *_*

    • just buy 1 , the price is not that expensive as before :v

      • new_tradition

        The cheapest I’ve seen here for a bundle 199.99 plus 13% tax. Still too pricey for my budget ;A;

        Oh woe was me, semi-broke post-college grad living at home ;A;

        Plus I can wait for the other games to get cheaper. It’s only P4P I want right away, so I kind of don’t want to spend more than 190 for both the system and game, if possible. But we’ll see how it goes *shrugs*

  • Lee

    Ys Celceta! Nice to see a Falcom representative~ (I wish we get a localization though)

  • Aldridge517

    Journey took home some awards, that’s great!

  • HeatPhoenix

    I came in here, about to complain about how they never pick the good ones like Gundam Extreme Vs.

    Left with a smile on my face.

    • Budgiecat

      There is a casualty: No vote for Tokyo Jungle. Elephants on roller skates…

      • HeatPhoenix

        Salarymen that don’t mate probably didn’t go over well in Japan.

  • MosquitoLemon


    My friend is going to Japan and offering to pick up stuff (aka free shipping, cheaper prices). Are there any must-have JP-only PS3 titles that I should know about? If not, I’m just going to ask for the Sengoku Basara HD collection and call it a day.

    • xMCXx

      Hm, maybe Ni No Kuni if you can’t wait until January. ;D

  • PrinceHeir

    good to see Dark Souls, and Uncharted, Gravity Rush and Dragon’s Dogma getting recognition in japan :D

    surprise to see Super Danganronpa 2 and Castlevania Harmony of Despair :P

    also JOOOOJOOOOOOO!!!!!!
