It's here

Dependable Amazon, arriving at my door a good hour before most of the shops open. 
 
...unfortunately, I won't be able to actually play the thing for another month or so. No access to a PS3 (or a 360, for that matter) until then. Oh well, there's the soundtrack to listen to, the art book to read and the instruction booklet to drool over.

sexy puzzle platforming, have fun I guess....

@tansuikabutsu Please tell me that is not a bed.

Steal someone's PS3/Xbox 360. Murder someone if you have to. You're real lucky for getting to play it soon.

Posted by ChrisTaran

Awesome to see you have it. It's finally out!  I'll have my copy tomorrow and I can't wait to rip into it.

Fate can be a real prick sometimes.

I wonder if this is what a friend of mine named HS is waiting on? Curious.

How does it smell...? 

Posted by Synaptic

Nice dude. I'd love to hear your thoughts about it after you have a chance to play.

Posted by Salbert

Why wouldn't you just wait to play it until it's released here? Or can you understand Japanese?

Posted by ReyGitano

Totally awesome. Thanks for the pictures man, enjoy.

Posted by FritzDude

Using google translater for every dialogue sounds like a lot of fun...  
 
Unless you can Japanese? If that's the case: Have fun!

...upload the soundtrack, maybe?

Posted by tansuikabutsu
@Salbert: The fact that I got a package from amazon.co.jp on release day (in the morning, no less) kind of implies I live in Japan, doesn't it? 
@FritzDude: My Japanese is not perfect, but it's certainly good enough to play without a dictionary.

DAMNN YOUUUUU.... please inform us how it is when you get to play! Dying to know.

Looks like a futon to me!
Posted by tansuikabutsu
@Gaff: Sorry, I failed to see your question before... Yeah, as mutha3 says, this is a futon. Kind of necessary when living in an apartment the size a budget allowance can afford in Japan.

@tansuikabutsu @mutha3 *Insert dubious innuendo about Catherine and your bed here* 
 
Stupid brackets! 
 
Also, really curious about this game, though if the one English tweet about is to be believed, it is also hard as nails.

Sounds good to me! Persona games where too easy anyway. hardgames4lyfe

I'm pretty jealous too. Wonder if it's worth buying even though I can't read most of the Japanese. Still, the dialogue could be enough to pick up on the story.
Edited by Underachiever007

I'm going to wait for a little while longer for them to announce an official N.A. release date. Or I might just lose patience and import it anyway.

Posted by DonutFever

Enjoy! Please write about how it is, and if you do, try to keep it spoiler-free.

Speaking of which...

Apparently Jeff likes adult charm.

I want to get in on the fun too, so here's my copy now that I'm finally home to play it!

Apparently this is a relatively hard game, even on "Easy" (since that apparently just grants the player the 1-move-rewind option). I'm looking forward to hear what you guys think about it.

I heard that too, but wasn't it admitted that the demo's easy mode was bumped up so the players wouldn't think it was a complete cakewalk? (whole game wise i mean)
 
@ChrisTaran: LUCKKKKKKYYYYYYYY

It's about to get sexy at Giant Bomb

Posted by MooseyMcMan

If I knew Japanese, or was obsessed with games made by the Persona team, I would be envious of you. But since I don't know any Japanese, and am not obsessed with Atlus stuff (aside from the Endurance Run, of course), not so much. Have fun though. Looks interesting, I guess. 

Posted by FluxWaveZ
@Catolf: Yeah, I think they said something about the 2nd level in the demo having its difficulty actually be "Normal" instead of the initially selected "Easy", but even that was easy when I went through it. Thoughts I'm reading make it seem like it actually gets pretty hard and, honestly, that makes the game sound even better.
Posted by Animasta

I'm definitely pretty glad that it's actually pretty hard, it was one of my main concerns that the block pushing stuff would be too easy.

Shitty game.

Judging by the URL that is not even close to the right game.

hehehe.. bad troll.. that's not even the right game. Also, this game isn't even in NA yet, so how the hell would they be able to review it? Do some research before you try and slam a game you know nothing about.

Yeah the Normal wasn't too bad, I did die a few times trying to figure it out but I managed to do it. The idea that this get's harder frightens me and excites me at the same time. XD

Oh no, I meant the demo wise. Though I am looking into getting the game, when I do you'll probably know when I start complaining of being stuck XD
Edited by gazingout

I was referring to another Atlus game that was overhyped by their rabid, nonsensical fanbase, yet it was a flop, same thing will happen with Catherine, which is not even an SMT, you know,an RPG which doesn't have 24 years history behind it. Ryan said he was dissapointed with the actual gameplay in the Quick Look, so there you have it, all indications in the world that Catherine is a shitty game.

Posted by Bocam

It's funny how much the demo cut between Stage 1 and 2.

You picked a game: Strange Journey... A game that is a tie back to the classic SMT that they wanted to be that way and because gamespot didn't like it, it's a flop? Did you see any other reviews were the general points for it was int he 8's? By those fans of the series and other sites..
 
The only one BESIDES gamespot that gave it a piss poor review was Game critics with a 3/10.
 
I'm sorry that Ryan wasn't happy with the gameplay but his word dosen't count for everyone else. From what I played of the demo I enjoyed it and from the stories ATLUS is able to spin I'm sure I'll be happy with the story. Please troll somewhere else.

Was there a lot? (assuming you have the game in which NO SPOILERS!) XD
