What Happened This Week – Buy Shares in Black Mesa

And we’re back on task, no worse for wear. Well, I’m still fighting a cough, but at least we’re up and running again. As I said yesterday, sorry for the delay folks. Fortunately it wasn’t too busy a news week so I had time to chew on some rich, yummy financial analysis alongside the TGS leftovers. Let’s get down on it, shall we?

  • Tokyo Game Show wrap-ups: 3DS releases are promising and its match-up with the Vita is the fight to watch; Square Enix needs something to reassure fans it knows what it’s doing, which probably isn’t FFXII-2; Konami lets Suikoden out of the cellar into yet another cellar; Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 confuses yet taps into the mysterious ‘buy me’ impulse; Namco-Bandai still hates money.
  • Dualshockers.com provides some insights into the Japanese stock market and its reactions to TGS.  Short version: Sony should be thankful Japan likes the Vita.  The full article is definitely worth the read.
  • Sony has a brief network outage that’s quickly corrected as authorities nab yet more LulzSec participants.  The irony of this is not lost on me.
  • A university study crowdsources viral protein modeling to a bunch of FoldIt players, with surprising results.  Look to see someone try to weaponize this in the near future.
  • Not exactly game-related, but the CERN researchers firing a particle that seemingly broke the speed of light is too fascinating not to discuss and/or fantasize about.  Read up on it if you haven’t already, it could very well be science fiction in the making.
  • And speaking of science gone mad, code-hunters find an apparent teaser for Half-Life 2: Episode 3 in Valve’s DotA 2.  Don’t play games with my heart, Valve.  Just… don’t.

Suikoden Wanders Worlds This Spring

Suikoden fans should get out their calendars now because Suikoden: Tierkreis for the Nintendo DS is officially headed to North America this coming March. Along with news of the release window came some details regarding the game’s plot. The story is set in the “Million World universe.” During the course of the story, players will find themselves traveling to parallel worlds and encountering a wide variety of characters and cultures.

Tierkreis also makes unique use of Wi-Fi. Players can send their characters on quests via Wi-Fi, which will be completed by other Wi-Fi users. Upon completion of the quest the player’s party will return with new items and abilities. Tierkreis features animated cutscenes and voiceovers, and, of course, will center around finding the 108 Stars of Destiny.

Suikoden Tierkreis Coming to North America

In a press release Tuesday, Konami announced that the latest installment in their Suikoden RPG series, the DS-bound Suikoden Tierkreis, will be localized for a North American release.  Plot details have been sparse thus far, with suggestions of parallel worlds being involved somehow.  Reportedly, the story begins with all but three of the Stars of Destiny dying in battle, and the survivors are tasked with “resurrecting” the others to take on the One King.  Konami also indicated that Tierkreis will make use of the online capabilities of the DS, allowing players to send some of their characters on quests that others can complete.  No US release date has been posted.
