I loved the game when I first saw the confusing trailer that blew my mind into pieces and still continues to do so. I may just pre-order it, as when I went to GameStop recently they said I should do so if I "like RPGs".

XD I REALLY hope they don't offer the pre-order to just anyone, this is not the typical RPG.

Dunno if this is really considered an rpg. It's really just more like adventure/puzzle or so.

I suppose one would not consider it an RPG... in a sense? Maybe it's easier to call it that so it'll make some people pre-order it. I want it either way, not just for the steamy cover art (and hopefully goodies) that come with all pre-ordered games. Please United States, don't censor this game... or I will rage.

Well it just doesn't have the elements of a puzzle game. The Shin Megami Tensei staff were trying something new with this one instead of their usual awesome rpgs they make. lol

And this is atlus. They usually don't censor their games and keep it pure. So censoring should be the least of worries on your mind about this game.

My gamestop didn't mention this game they mentioned FF4 remake for the psp lol.

I'm going to get this after acen since I am pre ordering enough games and I haven't gotten all my wigs yet for my cosplays. But I am getting it since <3 atlus.

I'm really excited about this game, got my pre-order in a few weeks ago. I asked about a limited edition and they said there wasn't one as of yet but I'm still hopeful there will be one announced.

I worry about the voice acting. I'm keen on just having the game work through subtitles if it means having some decent dubbing in comparison to what we usually get with English dub. :(

Really? I haven't had too many issues with Atlus games and voice acting in the past.

Regardless, dubbing will make the game more accessible to others as more people prefer dubbing over subbing, though I do enjoy when games give the option of having both.

I agree with Elf. Usually Atlus has top notch voice acting for it's games. Not to mention having the english and japanese tracks are very popular in atlus games nowadays.

I admit, I haven't been on the video game scene in awhile, and what games I have seen of Atlus did make me smile. It's probably my dissatisfaction of seeing plenty of off dubbing in popular games. And not to bash the voice talent of today, but I prefer the original actors to a game or any piece, because that voice was made to fit while USA needs to make it work. That, and I like the idea of USA being made to deal with another language and culture instead of being spoon fed. ^_^

And there are currently plenty of Let's Plays' of Catherine on YT right now. Very intrigued by this game and its "never-ending" staircase. :thumbup:

I agree with pretty much everything you said, but I'm talking purely from a business sense. The majority of gamers prefer dubbed over subbed. So they sell more copies and make more money to bring more games over.

=D I just saw the video, I am SO doing this. I would love to be in a trailer for one of my anticipated games for the summer.

*BTW, I WANT to get married... just to have the ceremony. Legality of my love and declaration for my S/O be damned.

Hmm, I liked Heavy Rain, though I ended up buying it after the fact - believe it was on sale. Anyway, I've got it pre-ordered too. Boxers ftw.

My husband is really excited for this game - he's been watching news/reviews/etc for it since last year. We just played the demo a few days ago, and I can see why he's so excited for it. (No real surprise, since he's a big fan of the Persona/Trauma Center games.) The voice acting's great, the artwork is phenomenal, and I find the dream sequences appropriately creepy.

In point of fact, the aura I'm getting from the game almost reminds me of that movie "The Cell"...only (from what I've seen thus far) not nearly as bloody or horrific.

If I recall correctly, the character Vincent had a cameo in Persona 3 Portable. If that's true, then the Catherine game would be loosely related to the Persona 3/4 universe. I'm curious what this might mean for the future of the multiverse that is Megami Tensei. This is a franchise that's been similar to today's bleak western RPGs, even during the 8/16-bit era -- it's had over twenty years of difficult and unhappy games about demons, the end of the world, and adult main characters who align with ambiguous good or evil sides.

I was somewhat worried. A lot of the games Atlus releases in English are dub only. So if there's decent characterization and writing, then maybe I'll look at the Catherine demo.

From what I've seen in the demo, it's nicely done so far. It's hard to gauge for certain how the rest of the game will be, but I'd venture to guess that it'll be good as a whole. Jamie in particular tends to be nitpicky on voice acting in his games, but he likes how the characters sound thus far. And the script (as much as we've seen) is well done, too.

It won't hurt to check the demo, at least~

I'm very wary of Catherine. I actually haven't looked at any gameplay videos sicne the trailer that released the fact that it was not an RPG but a puzzle-game. Atlus has managed to make some interesting games and concepts with the SMT series but I'm pretty tired of the "woman using her sexuality as a weapon" type character.

And my friend is named Catherine. It gets weird pretty quickly.
