I remember a specific memory from when I was eleven. I had saved all of my money for some months until I finally had enough to purchase myself a brand new Playstation. The game I decided to buy with it? The original Tomb Raider.
I was very pleased with my purchase. The game had everything I had wanted from a game from the next generation of consoles. It had beautiful 3D graphics. It had action. It had adventure. I was completely taken with the game and happily kept up with the series until it’s forth title. Things got a little shaky from there, and it wouldn’t be until another seven years until the series was brought back to a new glory.
Since I haven’t posted anything in awhile and this issue in particular annoys me, I feel this is a good time to post again.
Atlus has decided to be the first publisher in the PS3’s 6 year existence to releasee a game that will be region locked.
Persona 4: Arena, which hits Japanese shelves on the 26th of this month will be restricted to it’s releasing region. Why Atlus has decided this is still unclear.
If you were hoping to grab this game before it’s localized release, you may need to think again. That is, of course, if you don’t have a Japanese PS3 of your own.
You gotta give a hand to Jackie Estacado. After going on a murderous rampage through New York to avenge the death of his girlfriend Jenny with the help of his birthright powers known as The Darkness, he manages to take over the Mafia family and subdue his powers from taking control of him. That is, until a few years later when a slight massacre at a restaurant causes Jackie to call back his Darkness powers to save himself from death and solve the ordeal.
