    Err... just thought I'd let people know those previously uncracked demos are now availiable and working for CFW users on certain sites I can't mention here, thanks to hrimfaxi.

    GoW demo is fantastic, looks much more crisp and clear than any of the other PSP games i've seen lately.
    Lord of Arcana is really really cool of an RPG, don't let the japanese stop you - if you've played enough games, you'll have no problems here.

    They were only released by Liquidzigong/hrimfaxi on the one Chinese site (there's an open topic about it but since i'm unsure about whether it'd be permitted to post a source link to them, even though they're demo's i won't) and are already everywhere.

    Whilst i'm pleased there's a fix, i'm also disgusted as how fast and widely they've been re-uploaded by so many people everywhere.

    I've seen him credited on the place I downloaded the demos from, nobody was entitling them to themselves.
    Also, how ironic, after a while of waiting for the Lord of Arcana demo to work, it was fixed... on the same day the full game was dumped [​IMG] Lord_of_Arcana_JPN_PSP-Caravan.

    ?? RiPPER.... Caravan
    ?? PACKAGER.. Caravan

    Also, it isn't cracked I believe. But I'm downloading it so we'll know soon.

    I expect you've got yourself a nice "The Game Cannot Be Started" error there...seems unless liquidzigong releases it or his patching method there's no-one else to step in.

    Wonder if this means someone can get Cladun to work as well now?

    Perhaps when the decryptor thingy is released to the public.
    Also, the Monster Hunter Portable 3rd demo is out and fixed now too, for those interested [​IMG].

    Off topic, but is Lord of Arcana any good? I read some people thought it was a Monster Hunter clone like God Eater, but I saw some videos and it certainly didn't look that way. I read someone else said it's like Valhalla Knights, and that's even less exciting to me.

    The website says the genre is "multi-action", and it's 1-4 players, so does that mean this is another multiplayer-focused fight-the-giant-monster game like Blood of Bahamut (or God Eater, for that matter), or what?

    It's like Monster Hunter + Final Fantasy. You actually see how much damage you deal, you have spell AND items, flashy cinematics, and even Bahamut is in the game. It's good, but not for everyone.

    Is it playable?
    I don't want it to be like Last Ranker where I can't play it because of the moonrunes :/

    Lol, don't worry about Japanese, Last Ranker sucked no matter what language it was in.

    @Goli: I guess the real question would be, do you spend half your time hopping around like an idiot while battles last for an hour, and if you make one wrong move you die? Or is it more forgiving, like you know, Final Fantasy games where you almost never die if you're leveled up enough?

    It was awesome until moonrunes got in my way from advancing.

    How far did you get? I could help you if you actually like the game... though it's really a boring RPG and I doubt they'd bring it out in any other region.

    It's much more like Final Fantasy, you even get experience points and everything [​IMG].
    prowly_: It is playable if you don't know japanese.

    Yep, I tried it out last night. It's interesting in that there are shorter battles that are fun to do solo, but the main quests really feel like they should be played multiplayer (I mean, that's their intention after all).
