@Jampie
You're right about Fantasy Life: Link! (still, 2000 yen is twice the price of a great eshop game such as Denpa Ningen RPG 3). But this new Bravely Default update is going to cost 2,900 Yen which seems a steep price to pay for what seems like small engine improvements.

And what's more important, this tactic of selling updated & improved version just a year after the launch of the original sure doesn't send a message of support to early adopters. Why buy the next game at launch if you can get an improved version for the same price a year, or even only 7 months (see fantasy life) down the road?

On the same note - it does worry me that as of late companies are expecting a full-price re-purchase of games for some added functionality and other niceties (see also: Fantasy Life from Level 5 which has been re-released as fantasy life: link, a few months after the original hit the shelves). Isn't it shooting yourself in the leg through sc***ing fans and early adapters? Why aren't such updates offered as a low-priced DLC update to those who already own the game? Not cool.

@astroshamu:
The game is really text heavy, and many features seem to require that you DO understand what they say (for example - neighbors hinting at their preferred birthday presents, status reports in the city hall etc.). Furthermore - much of the charm of this game comes from the humorous quirky text. That how it was in previous animal crossing versions and that's how it is now.

Another interesting tidbit I haven't seen mentioned elsewhere - the game features use of the 3ds Play Coins (those you get from walking in real-life) - you can exchange it for special fortune cookies with intriguing texts (e.g. a mustached-man is going to feature in your life) which in turn can be exchanged for exclusive objects (in this case - a Mario floor for your house). Really great :)

mirnkaya commented on XSEED Hints at Rune Factory 4 Localisation:

Rune factory 4 is brilliant so its certainly worthy of localization. It's the first one in the series I've played, and I love every minute of it. I've already invested dozens of hours in it - there is always something fun and interesting to do. It even utilizes Play Coins (which you can turn daily to in-game money at an ever-changing exchange rate...)

I'm willing to pay for new areas - for example if there would be in the future some new island packs to which you can travel by boat or some underwater areas to visit through diving or anything fun and crazy of the sorts. But it's surely a slippery slope as anyone who ever played The Sims should know

mirnkaya commented on First Impressions: Club Nintendo Picross:

The price is not 150 points but rather 80 (i.e. 4 registered games or in my case - one registered console and 1 game) and this is certainly a great value and great game. Picross is addictive and brilliant (now considering how to get money to purchase Picross E2...)
