    1:48 and 3:40 FTW.

    ok so i'm getting really sick of the regular boring recycled games coming out in english. (e.g. zelda -> elebits)
    i want to try something completely NEW.

    so i want to shift over to some japanese games. with the english stuff i have enough experience to pick out the good ones from the bad. never played a Japanese one before though and have no idea where to start.
    i like bullet curtain syle, fast paced action and megaman style (the good zx advent one, not the other RPG one)

    yeah it's actually a lotta fun. wasn't too sure when i first picked it up but it only took a few mins to get the hang of it. no translation yet as far as i know. however i hate english voice overs. i prefer the original voices so i hope they keep it that way. subs would be nice... there is the occasional technical word i can't understand.

    Technically, it's not. EBA it's the "western spinoff" to OTO. EBA has the same gameplay of OTO, but with songs more likable for the western public.

    PS: Don't bump topics so old, please.
