    That for destroy Pac-man renewing it!

    Where is the old Namco? Bandai doesn´t have interest for me except the awesome´s One Piece of Wii.

    And remeber this:

    Street Fighter >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Tekken.

    Surprisingly, even after some mixed reviews, I rented Dead To Rights: Retribution and the game is pretty damn good.

    It reminds me a lot of Max Payne with the seedy underground life, slow-mo, and narration. This is the first Namco/Bandai title I've enjoyed in a while.

    Definitely worth buying at $30 or less.

    This alone indicates a big problem.

    The tales series probably would've racked in a good amount of cash if Namco actually localized most of it. Symphonia did well back in the GC days due to a good advertising campaign.

    Most of their stuff is crap though with some good games here and there. Saying that the same can be said about Ubisoft.

    I lol'd.

    This is kinda to be expected, what with the world economy in a slump. Although the article claims it was because of bad business practices.

    Well, they deserve it after abandoning the Tales series outside Japan, and being massive dickheads.



    I had to import my copy of Vesperia.

    Except Ubisoft makes a profit off their crap. [​IMG]

    They had a weak line-up last fiscal year. This one seems more promising, but who knows?
