As you can tell from the topic description, this month is indeed, bad. In fact, there's hardly anything outside of some titles that got pushbacks to this month. So copypasta! You can read the Wii version of this thread right here Some rules and stuff. Warning: Spoilers inside! - No flaming. If I list a game you don't like, too bad. If I don't, too bad. - This is mainly North American releases, sorry. I'll, on occasion, do a European or Japanese release if it's big enough and not already out in America. - If a game is already released in English and is being released again for another region, I won't bother adding it. Like say if Super Mario Galaxy 2 was out in America in April (it won't) and it came out in May in Europe, I won't list it for May. I'll also do the same if a game was released in English (aka Europe or America) and is being released in Japan. - I get my dates from GameFaqs, Wikipedia, and IGN, so if a date is wrong don't blame me. You can, of course, point it out and ask me to fix it if you have the right date. Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar Developed by: Marvelous Entertainment Published by: Natsume Release date: August 17th (America) Genre: Simulation My Hype Level: Another Harvest Moon, I never would've guessed... GBAtemp Hype Level: It's Harvest Moon so of course I'll try it! Copied from July. Seriously, stop with the Harvest Moon. They just keep crapping out on Harvest Moon game after another. It's getting produced at the speed of shovelware. And it's just the same farming game we've all known, outside of some of the puzzle games and Rune Factory. Dawn of Heroes Developed by: Wicked Studious Published by: Majesco Release date: August 17th (America) Genre: Strategy RPG My Hype Level: I got sick of this genre a long time ago GBAtemp Hype Level: Some minor buzz Copied from May. Anyway, it's a SRPG so off the bat I'm not too interested (not that it's a bad genre, I'm just really sick of them), but it looks like it has some decent potential. Monster Rancher DS Developed by: Tecmo Published by: UFO Interactive/Tecmo Release date: August 3rd (America) Genre: RPG? I don't know My Hype Level: Meh, doesn't interest me GBAtemp Hype Level: Is it gonna be delayed again Can't dig up my old write-up so looks like I'll have to write something original. Sigh... Well, there's not a whole lot of monster collecting games I like outside of Pokemon. I liked Monster Racers and Dragon Quest Monsters wasn't too bad, but otherwise it's not my thing. Well, Monster Rancher games have been around for a while and they're decently popular, so this may be good... Provided it's not delayed again. Ivy the Kiwi? Developed by: Prope Published by: Xseed Games Release date: August 24th (America) Genre: Puzzle/Platformer My Hype Level: Tried the DS version, wasn't impressed GBAtemp Hype Level: Apparently they were impressed No boxart around, sorry. Same write-up as the Wii one. Ivy the Kiwi? came around not too long ago to Japan. The DS version luckily had an English translation hiding in the midst of it so once it was patched most things were English. I played a bit of that and honestly I wasn't impressed. It felt like a more constricted and worse controlling Kirby: Canvas Curse. And it was pretty frustrating and boring. But apparently people here liked it so I guess they'll be glad this is getting a localization. Other titles - Tetris Party Premium: 8/5 (Japan) - Battle Spirits: Digital Starter: 8/5 (Japan) - Dragon Quest IX: 8/19 (Australia) Overall Summary This month right out sucks. Everything are games that have been pushed back multiple times so they're standing on shakey ground. Everything else is crap. I had to will myself to do this write-up so don't forget to thank your writer. Next month is better. Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions and Batman: The Brave and the Bold highlight some super hero games, while the new Professor Layton and Etrian Odyssey also pull up the month. Have a nice August!
