These are the October Update news:
Cash Wars: ok, it's not really a RPG, but I've been playing it...
this is a strategy-like on-line game, free to join. It also gives
you the possibility to win prizes and crap like that. Anyway, looks
fun to play, so check it out. If you really decide to play and want
to join a MDN (Mutual Defense Network), search for mine:
- Delay: Sakurai Taisen 3, which Sega said that was almost ready,
has been delayed. This 3 GD-ROM title is now expected to be available
in Japan sometime during the Spring of 2001
- Nihon Falcom: the Dreamcast version of Falcom's Rhapsody of Zephyr
is currently 80% complete and should be available in December.
- Ads: some of you may probably have noticed it... I've decided to
remove all the paid banners I had on the page. Hopefully things
will now load faster (there still is a banner in the main page of
server 1, but that belongs to my host).
- PS2: Sony has announced the official release dates of its new system.
The United States will receive it on the 26th of October. Almost a month
after that (on the 24th of November), it'll be Europe's turn (except some
countries). On the 30th of November, Australia and New Zealand will receive
this console. All the remaining countries will get it until Christmas.
However, release dates aren't the issue here. The Japanese government has
placed some heavy restrictions on the export of PS2 due to its advanced
technology, so odds are those who haven't pre-ordered it will have one hell
of a tough time finding one on the shops.
As for RPGs, there are four planned to be released at the same time as the
console: Evergrace, Eternal Ring, Summoner and Orphen. Since it's also possible
to play PSX titles on the PS2, expect a race for the shops to buy Final Fantasy 9
and Lunar 2.
- Sakura Taisen 3: this Dreamcast RPG should be about to hit the stores, so
keep an eye for it. Meanwhile, here are some snapshots for you to look at.
You know something important that happened recently? Then
send it to me! If it's really important, I'll place it here!
