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

ohh, that explanation alone intrigues me. Sold!

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.

Axefactor 180. We Get What We Deserve

I would love to change my username to DaySixEdition games.

Greetings fellow Axeheads.  I am once again compelled to write my thoughts in the same theme I wrote every other time in relation to the AxeFactor #180.  Our glorious Axelords Brent and Lorin again ponder as to why it is that our industry treats us like crap.  There is even a pole again for us to express what we feel about the situation.

The pole is missing the ''The industry treats us as we deserve.''   Which is what…

AC: Unity - The good, the bad and the ugly

The good:

- Graphics. It looks stunning and the amount of NPC's roaming through the city give the game a nice ambiance and make the city come to life like no other game has ever done before.

- Interiors. Much more inside buildings now. Fast short cuts through a house or complete missions taking place in a palace. Not every house is accessible but there is plenty of them to make it divers. 

- Riddles. Less hand holding this game. Riddles and murder cases to tease the…

Hatred is not about violence & here's why

PSA: Nothing I am saying is meant to be inflammatory or antagonizing. I am simply informing you the reader on my personal take of the Hatred controversy now that it has been several weeks and we can really take a step back to examine what the issue is.

 

The Hatred controversy is not about Violence in video games... Hatred is not about Grand Theft Auto, Hatred is not about Halo, heck Hatred is not about Boondock Saints or even Sons of Anarchy. Hatred is about Columbine, there I…
