Very happy to see two of my favourite videogame series here: Tales and Yakuza. <3

Poor 360, no one wants you in Japan.

Though living in Japan (and understanding Japanese well) would be great for someone like me who likes most of those games.

Jeez Nintendo is still killing it.

Unrelated but picking up Ni no Kuni tomorrow. <3

I'm pretty sure Resident Evil: Revelations will be higher than that after May 23th, 2013.

3 RE games on that list, so flawless.

No FF games, lol. All I can see is Tales of Xillia 2.

No FF? :(

Square didn't release anything new for FF in 2012 except Theatrhythm.

I think the latest FF (FF13-2) was released just in 2011 in Japan (some time in December), so that might be the reason :)

Geez Japan, you and I do NOT agree on video games.

-points for Pokemon Conquest tho-
