Just FYI, PS3 games are not region-locked. So there's no need to mod to play Japanese games.

Yes, but I don't know Japanese. :-)

Minor detail. I mean, it only looks suspiciously like a visual novel, which just means you'll need a dictionary and a professor of Japanese to play it :).

Meh. That looks pretty awesome, but I'm actually pretty saddened with my PS3 so far. If that's a must game for you, wait until it's announced that it's shipping here in the states. Otherwise, the PS3 is just a blue-ray player. (And a nifty linux workstation)

Ah, if only there were a US version of Ultraman Fighting Evolution Rebirth. That might actually get me to buy a PS2. :)

*wryly* I own a J-PS2 just for games like that (admittedly more the SRW franchise). Ultraman and the other Banpresto games while 90% Junk (Sad to say, but the tie-in effect still applies a lot) can generally be puzzled out. And I was pleasantly surprised by Kamen Rider Kabuto's fighting game.

Also, if not wanting to spend on an admittedly expensive oneshot, if you can find a cheap used (but in good condition) big-style PS2, there is a program you can find through some channels (bluntly, it's a modchipper deal though no hardware modding needed) that allows you to rip to a Maxtor HD games. Which doesn't care on the region code, if you rip to PC. I actually use this for honest gain, since I physically own the discs, but the speed increase is leaps and bounds above DVD/CD reading.

I've seen video clips of the Ultraman Fighting Evolution series that have led me to believe that they're pretty decent games, especially Rebirth. Admittedly, it's impossible to tell from a video clip whether the controls are any good.

So is this where your screen name came from?

Just curious

Ah, I read a few posts down and see that it is. Cool.

Yep - from Megazone 23 Part I - the original anime. I used it as my login starting in 1989.
