So much more than war...

Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

Today in Bad News: Grand Knights History Canned

Posted on Thursday, May 3 @ 00:53:07 Eastern by Heath_Hindman

RPG fans take a shot to the balls today, as XSeed sadly announced that it can't finish localization of Grand Knights History due to "lack of development resources" from Vanillaware, the game's maker.

XSeed sent a statement to a few people who are not me but apparently include my good homie Michael Cunningham, which reads:
XSEED Games has confirmed it will not publish Grand Knights History in North America as previously announced. Unfortunately, it was determined that development resources required to localize the game were not available, necessitating its cancellation. We regret not being able to bring the game to our fans, but we are committed to our 2012 lineup and look forward to sharing more on these games in the coming weeks and months.
Notice how the announcement says "it" when referring to XSeed, not "they." This grammar point is overlooked too often, and XSeed's proper use of it shows that this cancellation is by no fault of its own. It's a shame Vanillaware couldn't or wouldn't do a little more to move the process along for its foreign fans.

Recent times have also seen publisher UTV Ignition give up on Vanillaware's Vita RPG Dragon's Crown, which led to Atlus USA picking up the project. Whatever's going on over at Vanillaware, this might be cause for concern among foreign fans of Japanese games. Having developed Odin Sphere and GrimGrimoire, Vanillaware has proven itself a capable developer, and it'd be a shame to see its games stop moving Westward.
