RPGCast - Episode 249: "Imported Handheld Escorts"

We discover the most appropriate analogy for the current handheld market. Jon decides he's ready to import a 3DS. Square Enix and Nintendo demonstrate how well they understand the iOS market. Blizzard says they're going to do something, eventually.

    Quinn! I feel your Region lock pain! I tried ot get hold of Elimnage Original, Ragnarok tactics and Unchained Blades as recommended by Chris. Guess what, most of these is NOT available on the UK PSN network. I'm not allowed to use the American PSN network because I'm not an American. I want to give the game companies money for games but I have no options except to befriend an American who might let me use their address etc. Even E-bay is pretty useless. T_T;

    I find it funny that Manny was trying to push mobile gaming considering the bottom is about to fall out of the iPhone app market with China getting the iPhone.

    Because after all, China don't care.

    Region locking is definitely an issue, but I don't feel like it really affects most people and the rage is honestly at the point of beating a dead horse when its preaching to the choir week after week.

    Yes, you can. Just set up a NA PSN account and enter any valid information and you'll be set to go. I have a NA, EU, and JP PSN account, and can access the content from each store just as easily as my native region's store. The only problem is you can't use a UK credit card on a NA account, you'll have to buy the NA PSN cards beforehand.

    In the same way that Nintendo of America's original plans for Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story & Pandora's Tower didn't really affect most people back then? :confused:


    (Although maybe we could say both cases are just about people not wanting to spend the money to work around these issues.)

    I can't stand the thought of there not being feedback for an episode, so I've got fun question for you that I often find myself daydreaming about. If you were going to live on an uninhabited island for the rest of your life, what's the one and ONLY game you would bring? I think this is interesting because I think most people would not necessary bring their favorite game but instead a game that gas lots to do. In my own case, although I love Xenogears, Alundra, and Star Ocean 4, I wouldn't bring any of those. I would choose Valkyrie Profile 2 because that game has SO many things you can do with the battle system, TONS of items to create, and plenty of possibilities for play style such as power leveling and soloing.
    What one game would you bring and why?
