I know who they are, but are you asking which is better? Or something? Still Catherine!  :)

I usually crack under pressure when it comes to solving a puzzle under stress, which is probably why I failed the second puzzle like four times... The solution isn't hard whatsoever, I just start to do stupid things with the blocks when I see that damned fork coming for me.  
 
Glad I got to experience some of the gameplay even though I didn't understand 90% of the demo. If this game does come to the U.S. all I need are a few favourable reviews from people I trust, and I'm in! 
 
EDIT: If you press square, you create blocks! Wish someone would have told me that in a language I can understand...

Yep. When you pick up the little block icon, a prompt appears on screen with the X button next to it. I didn't notice that my first time through.

Ooh sweet. Totally going to download this puppy now! 
 
Edit: Aww shucks well it says it's for Gold members only and I set up my Japanese account a while ago. Guess I'll see if I have any 48 hour passes laying around. Other wise:

Only good things will come of this.

Woohoo! It's exclusive to Gold for XBLA Japan, so I can't get it yet. Will be fun for sure (if any of them know Japanease, that would be good o.O)

Quick question, just made a Japanese 360 account, it said on the dashboard that there is a free gold weekend tomorrow, do you think that will let me download it then, if not do you think I can use a US 48 hour code?

#60 Posted by supermike6 (3540 posts) -
@Rey_Leone: I thought that when you made a new account you get a free one-month Gold trial. If for some reason you didn't get that (you should have) then I think the Gold weekend would probably work.
#61 Posted by Ley_Lines (252 posts) -
@supermike6: Thanks, yeah I didn't get any sort of gold trial yet or perhaps I didn't type all of the information I needed to get it. However, I can wait a day, It will give me a chance to watch the quicklook before I try it myself.

@JJWeatherman: Yeah I have to imagine they're gonna release it here. It's just that not having the announcement makes me a little nervous :/  Just admit you're making it already!!

You don't get a free month gold if you've already created 2-3 other different profiles on that 360 system.

Ah, I didn't know that was the case. Well, it seems easier to grab on the PS3, so hopefully people can get their hands on it there.

Most mental thing I've ever played, could get boring but I'd still play it.

Yo, where's a nice legal place to put catherine-youhaveamail.mp3 for those who want a sweet text message tone?

Why, did you make an mp3? 
 
Post it here! (Upload it to Dropbox or something)

Use sendspace or something.

You ripped it from a game, i'm pretty sure you've already broken at least one law...  
 
E: Although do post it, cos even though I thought the game looked pretty pants, that bit was funny as fuck.

It's definitely gorgeous, and definitely high quality in regards to production, but I don't know. I have a feeling this game is going to get praised more because of the names on the front of the package, than the actual game within it.
 
I think I've said this about Catherine before but I'll say it again, it looks so interesting that I'd be very happy to be wrong about this.

Really? 
 
We're still talking about Atlus here right?

I'm not sure if you're referring to "name on the front of the box" or "game within it".
 
But I guess by the very nature of your statement I will say "yes".
Yes, I'm worried that the "ATLUS" on the front of the box has already garnered a lot of sight-unseen  perfect 10's.

There is no way Catherine isn't being released in the US/EU after the success of Persona 4. They'd have to be crazy.

That's silly of you to say, then.
 
Atlus' best selling game in its entire history is a 1/10th of what the usual blockbuster does these days.
 
I'd be much more worried about games like Dead Space 2, Mass Effect 3 and Uncharted 3.

I've been a sucker for mp3 ring/text tones ever since the N-Gage (mm mm mmmmm) and here we go:

No way to cut the background music out, it's a straight few seconds from the audio of playing the  game, works well with my Samsung Galaxy S's speaker.

Ha! That actually turned out really well. Totally using this.

Can someone rip that sweet  main menu music please?

#78 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -

Probably old news by now, but I must insist on how enthused I am that ATLUS actually incorporated the option to pause into any of the game's cutscenes. As far as I know, there are only a handful of games that actually have a dedicated sub-menu in order to pause a cutscene and you'd be surprised at how many games don't completely stop when you press the guide button. Good on them for being smart.

@FluxWaveZ: Definitely not news, but definitely worth celebrating! 
 
EDIT: Also, forgot the reason I was going to post here: @somejerk Thank you for that!
