    I watched the live stream on twitch. Hearing from the developers was great. I'm not a huge fan of these games, but I may end up picking them up. Spike Chunsoft should definitely do more of these community press conference style events.

    I like Danganronpa and Zero Escape, so I have at least some interest in this. Will wait to see more details and critical reception. I've never played the bizarrely punctuated Steins;Gate series, so I don't know if I should be interested in that. PixelJunk Monsters doesn't necessarily seem like my kind of game, but then I saw the snow level and thought "must have." WTF @ the other two games though.

    Zanki Zero... the nude clones and the shibari artist... yeah I'm not sure either, but I'll give it a chance.

    And 428? Apparently it was popular enough in Japan do merit a release here. I'm actually more interested in it now that I looked it up and saw the games (Machi and Banshee's Last Cry) that came before it. Apparently BLC was pretty influential back in its day. I wouldn't draw any comparisons to it and Radical Dreamers, but some people might.
    It seems like there's a lot of demand for VNs in the West currently, so it makes sense to me from a purely business standpoint to localize it. Hell, there are even a few games that I would never have checked out if it was not for the live-action style.

    428 is being localized by Alex O Smith's company, so that's a plus for me. That said, I know next to nothing else about it.
