Well I once overnighted in France. I was aboard an uncomfortable sleeper train as logistical part of a family holiday.

Dammit, I made an account in September and they still haven't activated it yet. How long does it take for them to activate it?


Can take up to 6months sometimes. Well worth it, GAF is probably the best games forum around.

Persona 4 arena is not going to be released in Europe in 2012. This is as much news as I am physically fit. (Note: I am 20'5)

As I said on GAF, I'll hold back on ranting about region-locking. I am still trying to figure out what needs to be done for this mythical European build. Certification processes are different here I know, but Zen have already said that they're not even bothering to get different languages other than English so I'm really struggling to see what the hold up is. But hey, Atlus/Index protected their precious domestic money so it's all OK! :roll:
Well, they'll be laughing on the other side of their faces come [whenever] when everyone's home brewed their PS3 to get the game.

As a goon who's gotten so much out of Something Awful. I will state the ten bucks that it cost to get in there was so worth it.

One thing I don't get is the UK misses quite a number of niche games, but I've never seen anyone make a big deal out of that, why is Persona 4 Arena so special?

Because it's the first PS3 game to ever be region-locked, thus it could set a very dangerous precedent for future games to be locked on PS3 to protect regional price disparities.

Hmmm, just noticed on Amazon that Freezing seems to have been delayed until April 1 2013. Maybe it's the same situation as Fractale and they're waiting on Australia so they can co-author discs?

I guess Amazon have got their wires crossed.

Madman have licensed Sword Art Online, Magi, K, Blade of Tempest and Fate/Stay Night Ultimate Blade Works.

I guess the chances of MangaUK possibly getting SAO have increased.

Here's hoping Manga/MVM pick up both of the above.

Bakemonogatari! I'm not familiar with Australian releases....will this be a DVD version? and will it be cheaper than the USA special set? (if anyone knows yet of course! :P). I can't afford to pay anything too outlandish so a basic dvd set of that show will do me since I doubt it will ever be out here. It's too weird for England XD

(plus I haven't bought a multi region blu ray player yet. Sticking with PS3 for the moment.)
