Jeanne d'Arc NOT coming to Europe

Only just found this out today when Eurogamer gave Jeanne d'Arc it's lowest score according to Metacritic. It seems that Jeanne d'Arc has been confirmed for a no-show in Europe. That's hugely disappointing for the European RPG fans. The lack of RPG's in Europe is painful for PSP owners, but that's mainly because we apparently only care about football games and shoot-em-ups anyway...

For those Europeans that want this game, you'll have no choice but to go to your favourite importer and get the game from them. Mine is winging it's way to me right now but for those in Europe who don't know where to begin, I share your disappointment.

This game for the Nintendo DS looks brilliant. I can't wait to see more of this game Here's hoping that this gets a European release!

Last Week (24th to 30th September)

As the Tokyo Game Show said goodbye to 2007 and looked forward to 2008, I rounded off a couple of trailers that I missed on the last few days, namely, Steambot Chronicles 2 and Oboro Muramasa (from the makers of Odin Sphere).

Apart from that, I took a look at my Wanted List and talked about Brave Story, released in July in the US (unlikely to come to Europe). I also created my second ever review (woo!), this time dissecting Riviera: The Promised Land (this review can also be found on Eurogamer under reader reviews. The current version on this site will be updated to the EG version).

I then had a look at this week's UK releases and also found out that Endless Ocean for the Wii was going to come to the UK, sooner than I thought in November. Finally, I looked at one of the most promising games on the PS3, LittleBigPlanet.
