The sexualization isn't a big part of the Fatal Frame series and its completely optional, so I doubt there would be much of an uproar about it if the game is localized. The reason Fatal Frame isn't being localized has little to do with the sexy outfits anyway; it's a lack of sales. Tecmo released the previous games with practically no marketing or hype, then wondered why the games didn't sell very well. If they (and Nintendo) actually put some time and effort int...
Worst game ever? I guess this guy has never played Big Rigs, Amy, or Charlie's Angels for Gamecube.
Or any of Uwe Boll's game movies.
"As close to old-school Resident Evil as a modern, big-budget game is likely to get." Hell yes!
Wow. I am pleasantly surprised by all the positive scores. Can't wait to pick up my copy!
I've seen a few people mention frame-rate drops. But that's about it.
The embargo only applies to sites who receive a review copy from Bethesda. But since The Evil Within is already being sold in some areas, some sites have been able to buy their own copies and release a review early.
35 hours is a decent length for a game like this. 60+ hours would just get repetitive.
I don't want to give Kotaku too many compliments, but the guy who uploaded these videos lives in Japan and has been doing a Lets Play of Fatal Frame 5 and translating the text as he plays. So he obviously knows Japanese.
Has it been confirmed that insanity will be a central theme of the game? Or that Pagan Min is insane? I've heard Ubisoft describe him as a psychopath, but that's a personality disorder not a mental illness. And having an "insatiable lust for power" (as the article mentions) doesn't exactly indicate that the game is going to focus on insanity.
The thumbnail is giving me a very Resident Evil vibe.
I love the lighting in this game. Very creepy.
Hatsune Miku...on David Letterman? Well, that's something I wasn't expecting to see in my lifetime.
I gotta admit, I didn't hear the Irish jig until my fourth playthrough of FFVIII. The first two times I got Eyes on Me (which ended with Squall and Rinoa arguing) and the third time I got a weird mix between the two songs (which also ended with Squall and Rinoa arguing). Oops.
Seriously? Even if you don't know Fry's comedy or movie work, he has played the narrator in every LBP game. So his appearance in the third is hardly shocking.
I think you've just convinced me to buy this Meltic!
The AI of the NPCs is amazing though.
"5. US Release" Western release*
