Seriously, Umineko has a massively large fanbase and I have seen many people clamoring for a Localization of this PS3 version on other forums. I saw this thread was up to 10 pages and I hoped it was full of everyone trying to convince NISA to take this project on.
Anyway, yes, I joined just to say that I do indeed really hope they at least consider this. I know Sony gave them crap about Visual Novels in the past, but I don't think Sony realizes how large the Umineko fanbase is. It's one of the most popular Visual Novels of all time, and the desire for this PS3 version is pretty staggering. As it stands, I am already definitely buying a PS3 for this game, and I'd rather not have to import the Japanese version since I don't understand Japanese. But I will if I have to. Even if I do import the game, I'd still buy the English version if it came out. That's how much I love Umineko and want this PS3 version. I know there are tons of people who feel the same way.
Anyway, vampko, Episode 1 is slow and takes awhile to pick up, and the story doesn't really become amazing until Episode 2 (and continues to get more amazing with each Episode). But if you don't like it that much that early on, don't force yourself to play it. Like I said, the Umineko fanbase is massive, both in Japan and America, but that doesn't mean every person ever is going to like it. It could just not be your thing. Either way, don't fill this thread with negativity.
We have to be positive. We have to at least hold out for a shining ray of light that NISA will at least consider this. I will continue to be positive until they specifically come out and say they won't. We all need to start thinking this way. After all, without love, it cannot be seen.
It's only fair to get a negative opinion in a thread. If you never see the opposing view point, then you don't really know how much the game is wanted.
I have decided it's not worth continuing unless all the parents (cept Natuhime and maybe Rosa) get killed early on. Their bantering and superiority complexes are making me want to kill all of them off myself. I don't like a story that makes me want to kill off half the cast. All the kids of the parents have got their charm though, and every servant, cept Gohda is really likable. And, to be honest, I find I have more like for the grandpa than all the parents.
If I had the ability, I would be the killer
And all this talk they do just makes me feel depressed and frustrated, which I don't think is the best way to open up a book. I also don't think a super long expository works very well either. Too much story, with no real excitement.
I don't know how much longer I can go on, but I will try my best. If it weren't for Battler, Maria, Jessica, George, Shannon, Kanon, Kumasawa, Genji, Nanjo, and the grandpa guy, I would not be able to cotinue this at all. Oh, and I really feel for Natsu-chan. Rosa's acceptable, but that's about it. The rest of the cast makes me want to (what I am about to say is VERY gruesome, these are the true feelings I have when I read this)For the grandpa, he seems pretty cruel, so I might add him into my spree....Spoiler:take a knife, a dull one, stab their eyes, slowly pulling them out, proceeed to skin them alive, pooling all the blood in a bucket, feeding the blood back to them as I start hacking away at their bones cutting off limbs one by one
I can at least give kudos for making characters I already hate with a deep and morbid passion so early on.
Ohohohoho, Keep playing. Also, note that the characters are supposed to be unlikeable, I feel. I won't go into spoiler teritory, but you're not wrong for hating the adults.
Naturally, I registered to show my support, Here's hoping it gets released here!
