    I was just wondering ... my niece is getting crazy waiting for this game to be released, and several stores already have it. Isn't it a bit odd there's still no release in the Scene?

    It's because some very very very terrible games don't get dumped because they are very bad [​IMG]

    No, it's not strange for a game not to get dumped instantly/early.

    Because ... I live in the other end of the world? x3

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to sound rude or something, I guess after KH:358/2 being dumped so early, I was expecting the same to happen with Oz.

    Chaotik,
    yea.. some games do come out early but not every game would..

    i am not being rude but please do remember you are intending to pirate for the game..
    then why can't you wait? not as if it hurts for waiting..

    No it's the other way around. Some very very very terrible games GET DUMPED because they are very bad and somehow easier to obtain (that or a ubisoft employee manages to dump them all in advance)

    I've been looking forward to this game since the Japanese release since I like the concept and the artwork was nice from what I tried of the original version.

    But no, a game of this size is very rarely if ever dumped early. Judging by how long it usually takes a release of this size from Atlus to be dumped, I wouldn't even expect it the week it comes out. Most likely it'll take 2-3 weeks.

    Remember, a shipping date is just an estimate. Xseed and Atlus aren't big name companies yet and even if they ship a game, it still might not hit stores or hit shelves for another week or so, and even then in limited amounts.

    Take, for instance, a game like Steal Princess. That took quite a while to finally see a release.

    Patience is a virtue.

    I wouldn't mind getting the game, but I hear the battle system is much like Dragon Quest's

    And I hate Dragon Quest soley for their crappy battle systems.

    Hmm I might actually check this out. Reviews criticize it for not being in depth, but I've been in need of a lite RPG to play after I finish KH.

    ya, i know what donato meant, i am still trying to find black sigil, but still no luck and the people that i talked to, they never even heard of the company, which i can't blame them, i found out about that game purely by combining through gamefaq for some stuff and i found it.

    Which part?

    Wizard of Oz is a third tier RPG released during a string of A-list games by a smaller developer. It's got a niche market and has had limited publicity online up to this point other than a few game blog previews.

    We've all seen the wait for Atlus games in the past year or so. Whether it's due to limited availability on the game shelves or the release groups focusing on bigger titles, that's debatable. But there is a delay that we all must wait through.

    It can't certainly be as bad as everyone says it is! I'm waiting patiently for the ROM.

    I found it odd that this game hasn't yet been released as well. I don't expect much from it but as a RPG game it certainly can't be as bad as Square's junk.

    How is it odd? It isn't a big name rpg, or even game; so it's not uncommon for it to not get a leak, or dump on release date.

    Have patience, piracy isn't a right. Some games take ages.
