The show is okay overall, but it gets worse as it goes on, Season 2 starts off boring but gets good as it goes on as well. 

The games are just overal a lot better and Sword Art is mostly good for it's premise, as it was originally written in 2002 as online short story when the writer had never had a published work before, as such it kind of suffers from not being overhauled enough from it's original form, as well as some of the predictions/commentaries it makes being a decade too late to adapt into an anime and still be insightful.

Simply put, on the strength of it's premise alone if this had come out as an anime first, we'd think of it as last decade's Ready Player One, I think. xD

Sucks there is no physical copy. It's all a scheme to get you to buy those overpriced memory cards!!

That or it's in limited release for a niche product they don't think would do well in the west anyway.

That said they've confirmed that a massive content patch for it in Japan has also been translated and is also coming to the west, so it's good to hear that western gamers won't be getting stiffed on the support end.

I read that the Japanese version is playable in English too. Is it true?

Comment by Rowan - AzureCantabile on August 19, 2014 at 4:11am

Dunno, haven't payed too much attention to this one specifically, haven't got a vita though I might be getting one in a few months.

Comment by Kal-V3 on August 19, 2014 at 4:40pm

Not the Japanese version but the Asia\Chinese version has basically everything in English, menus and things like that, not sure if all gameplay text is translated tho. It's more expensive to import plus i hear the story text translation isn't very good.

NBA2K15 Review

The NBA2K series has been one of the most dominant franchises in gaming. While some sports franchises rely on exclusivity deals to corner the market, NBA2K was able to do it the old fashioned way: make a far superior product to your competitor, and force them to close shop. This dominance allowed NBA2K to end the last console generation as the unchallenged king of basketball video games. 2K began the new console generation with another solid entry in the series. While NBA2K14 for the PS4 and…
