I almost forgot to mention...

Bujingai: The Forsaken City is in stores now.

Rent it for the action. Buy it for the J-pop goodness and subtitled interviews w/ Gackt, Maaya Sakamoto, and more. Either way = teh win.

I'm not just saying that because I cramped my "supple gaming hands," talked myself hoarse, and used every ounce of my kung-fu skill to stall legions of screaming visual kei fangirls (and boys) in the process of localizing this thing for you people. ;) Honest.

Don'chu be talkin' 'bout my baby! :D

Let me not overstate my role; I had nothing to do with the basic content of the title or it's mechanics. I only helped coordinate the team that brought the game overseas, and got the cast interviews subtitled.

That said, I personally am quite fond of the story, which is an extremely simple tale of the final cost for actions of vengeance. ^^ Though the cinemas do not by any means comprise the focal point of the game, I think they're rather lovely. I pick tougher critiques to read because I find them more informative then glowing, fluffy reviews... hell, a bad review often makes me more interested in some games, which makes them different to me than movies and such. There is a nicer review here, though - http://www.gamemethod.com/Console/440/bujingai-the-forsaken-city-ps2-review

Certainly, it is a game for people who feel that hitting things with a sword is it's own reward, and those looking for thought-provoking literary value should seek elsewhere. :D That said, I would say it's one of the best of it's kind ever on the PS2. But I would never urge somebody to drop money on it just 'cause my names in it. I'm just... expressing.
