Yes, you read that correctly. More than five years after this project started, we now have a fully-functioning patch for Blood of Bahamut! The project changed hands several times, and for the past couple of years it sat in limbo close to completion until it picked up steam again earlier this summer.

Special thanks to Aaron Chmielowiec for finishing up the last of the translations, rewriting a lot of the older translations and for compiling the patch, to disgaea36 for beta testing, and to Akudaikan (not a member here) for helping to check the Japanese.

Mosey on over to the link below to download the patch. Make sure to read the "Known Issues" on the release thread before patching. A final v1.1 patch will be released after the issues have been addressed (if they can be fixed).

The conference has now ended but you can watch the recorded version in English here: :arrow:here.

For a full breakdown of the announcements check out the following spoiler box:

Hey, remember Sony's Tokyo Game Show press conference last year? If you don't, it was the conference with ton of Japanese game announcements such as Phantasy Star Nova, Natural Doctrine, Yakuza Ishin, Monster Hunter for Vita and PS3, Dangan Ronpa Another Episode, Gundum PS4, and of course, the PlayStation Vita TV (PlayStation TV in the west) which was basically a Vita that could be played on your TV.
Now, Sony is preparing to bring us another conference on the first of September!
If you don't know already, this year's conference will be all about the the PS4. No Vita or PS3, just PS4. Which makes sense since obviously PS4's sales are horrible in Japan and with the lack of appealing Japanese titles, it just makes the situation worse over there. So what do many of you expect?

After the fall of THQ the fate of one of the most beloved "GTA-like" game franchises hung in limbo. Recently we had the pleasure of playing Saints Row 4, however I personally did not expect a "sequel" to come so soon.

All the lovers of completely random carnage and over-the-top gameplay can rest assured though - a new Saints Row game, a stand-alone add-on to Saints Row 4, is coming soon to the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC and it will take you to a place you haven't visited before - hell itself!

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell will be released on the 30.01.2015 for $19.95, it will also be a part of the upcoming Saints Row 4: Re-elected for PS4 and Xbox One.

In a surprising move, Nintendo decided to cut content for the NA and EU releases and release that content as DLC.

Weird, the western release is based off of the latest version released in Japan, Fantasy Life Link, and yet we don't get all of the content included from that version.
What do you think about this?
