Yakuza Kiwami English Release! August 29!

Being retold in Kiwami is the nascent character arc for Yakuza - the game begins with series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu getting sent to prison for the murder of his family patriarch (which he didn't commit). To make matters worse, during the 10 years of his imprisonment, not only does Kiryu's clan expel him from the yakuza, but ¥10 billion (~$100 million) goes missing from the clan treasury. Worse yet, Kiryu's childhood sweetheart is also nowhere to be found, and with the entirety of the Japanese underworld on the hunt for the missing cash, Kiryu is all but lost until he finds the orphan girl Haruka, searching for her aunt who shares the same name as Kiryu's missing love. What follows from there is a web of betrayal, underworld politics, and redemption as nothing will stop Kiryu from regaining his honor. [SegaAmerica]

The Surge - Its like Dark Souls in the Future?

The Surge - Target, Loot and Equip in limb-cutting new trailer Coming May 16 - preorders open now for consoles and PC Deck13's upcoming hardcore Action-RPG The Surge comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 16, 2017. Today, the latest Target, Loot and Equip Trailer highlights the game's limb-slicing loot system in all its bloody, brutal glory. The Surge gives players greater control over what they loot from defeated enemies. During combat, they can individually target specific body parts, which they can damage with a wise combination of vertical and horizontal attacks to then slice off - and what part they dismember directly determines what piece of equipment they loot. When approaching an enemy, players will make a difficult decision: do they target an unarmored body part for a shorter fight, or risk a lengthier, damaging battle for a chance at slicing off a shiny new piece of equipment? Balancing risk and reward is core to succeeding in The Surge, and bold players will be rewarded well! The toughest enemies drop the most powerful weapons and armor, so if you see a piece of equipment you like the look of, you'll need to fight hard for it...or die trying. [focus]

Persona 5 Atlus USA Instant Classic localization

*UPDATE: #Persona5 now shipped 1.5 million copies Worldwide! YAY! [source]

Super Stylish~

When localizing a Japanese game, there’s always something that simply won’t make sense to the Western audience if translated word for word. Similarly, there may be lines that are too long to fit in the text window or the time allotted in a scene. What to keep, what to cut out, what to change, what are the consequences—it’s always a tough call, and the approach is different for each person. But the process becomes a bit easier to handle when the entire team is on the same page. I’m really fortunate to be at Atlus, where everyone in the company shares the same vision. [more Atlus USA]

Happy Birthday Usopp! Anime Quotes - Usopp of One Piece

Usopp aka Soge King

Sogeking: Do you want to know where the Island of Snipers is?
Chopper and Luffy: Yes! Where?
Sogeking: ……In your heart

During his early childhood, Usopp (ウソップ Usoppu?) is abandoned by his father, Yasopp, who leaves to join the Red-Haired Pirates. Then, as Banchina (バンキーナ Bankīna), his mother falls ill, Usopp starts telling tall tales, expressing his hope that his father will return and take them out to sea. Even after his mother dies, Usopp does not blame his father for leaving. Despite his cowardly disposition, he strives to become a great pirate himself. He is a gifted inventor, painter, and sculptor, and faster than the speed of light itself. In combat, he relies primarily on slingshots to fire various kinds of ammunition with great precision. Later in the series, he achieves Observation Haki, while defending his captain. Eventually, he achieves notoriety under his alter-ego "Sniper King the King of Snipers" (狙撃の王様そげキング Sogeki no Ō-sama Sogekingu), a hero sniper wearing a golden mask and cape. Still later in the series he is known as "God" Ussop [Wikipedia]

"There... Comes a time when a man has to stand and FIGHT!! This is the time when his friends dreams are laughed at. Luffy wont die... I KNOW he'll be the pirate king one day. I WONT LET YOU LAUGH AT THAT!!"

GOD USOPP - Punk Hazard Arc

"When your friends are having a hard time, you should be there for them."

"I'll be Brave!"

“There comes a time when a man has to stand and fight. That time is when his friends or dreams are laughed at.”
