This should be good news for the RPG fans. How many discs does it come with, 3 or 4? The game has to be huge.

Alright we've all been commendably patient

but seriously...

Why the FUCK is this taking so BLOWFULLY, LAZILY long?!?!?!!

Is everyone who localizes these next-gen JRPG's literally retarded?

The original has been ON SALE for MONTHS.

Other parts of asia got a translated version WEEKS AGO, with full english. (text)

Voice translation CAN'T take that long. If it does, fuck it. LEAVE IT AND GO.
NOT THAT GREAT IN AN RPG ANYWAY. DEFINITELY not worth the time price.

No other RPG takes anywhere near so hellishly long to cross boarders, as these 360 nex-gens.

Weeks? SLIGHTLY Tolerable. HALF A YEAR OR MORE?! rolleyes.gif lurk.gif cussing.gif wacko.gif unsure.gif dry.gif

FUCK SAKE, consumers do you the favor of buying your products.

At LEAST keep up with the snails. ...damn

I think the game would have done a lot better if they released it a little more than a month before Halo 3 came out. I know Blue Dragon is not in the US yet, but big hit titles should stay away from Halo 3. It is MS's biggest hit and that is all people will talk about and it is all people will want to play because of that. Blue Dragon will have about a month of decent sales, that is all.

If they didn't take their good ole time and had released it before summer, they would have probably made a lot more revenue off the title.

Woooohooooo!!!!!! Hopefully by the time I'm done with Blue Dragon, Eternal Sonata will be out. Then I just have to wait for Two Worlds, Fable 2, and Lost Odyssey. I've been patiently waiting for soooo long.

How long have you been playing RPGs? When I got into them, we had to usually wait around a year for them to come over here. I was so into the RPG's back in the day, I even participated in the romhacking scene. Half a year for localization is NOTHING.

On a slightly better note, though, I'm a lil' ways into disc 2...
