And the surprise from Bamco is...

A Tales of Xillia localization! As many predicted it would be after numerous hints over all this time. Announced and confirmed at the Japan Expo in Europe. And it didn't take nearly as long to know we were getting this one as it did with Graces. Currently it is slated for release in 2013 at some point. I'm guessing it'll be pretty late next year at best. November or December time frame. Definitely some big excitement here. Now if only Bamco would offer up a special edition since the US got screwed out of that with Graces. Europe got the love there. But it all remains to be seen at this point. I'm keeping myself far away from spoilers and any information. I want to be surprised entirely like I was with Graces. Anyways, yay for another Tales localization~ Looking forward to checking this game out next year when it arrives.

Pokemon Black and White 2 Release Date!

So, we've finally got confirmation on the release date for these games. October 7th for the US and the 12th for Europe. Pretty dang fast turn around there. Definitely looking forward to this as with all Pokemon games. I will be getting Black 2 as I got White the first time around. That and Black 2 can unlock the harder difficulty mode after beating the game. Which I totally want without any inconvenience of trading for it so my decision was easily made all around really. I will see first hand just how much harder they make the game since this is their first attempt at adding other difficulties. Course I'll have to beat it first on normal but that is perfectly fine with me. Anyways, hopefully we'll get some kind of pre-order bonus as we usually do or something special like that. They're usually good about stuff like that. We shall see though in due time~
