Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold
ペルソナ4 ジ・アルティマックス ウルトラス―プレックスホールド


ARCADE - Atlus have just announced a sequel to Persona 4 Ultimate (2012)
featuring 3 new characters (Takeba Yukari, Iori Junpei & Minazuki Sho).
Slated for a Winter 2013 release - but following Atlus' recent bankruptcy
and acquisition by Sega Sammy, it's not clear whether it will appear on
Taito's NESiCAxLive or Sega's ALL.Net P-ras MULTI network.

You're going to need a JP account to get a taste of these two arcade milestones.
A shame: the original Virtua Striker (1994) was hugely popular in Europe,
and to this day remains unavailable at home in any shape or form.

in a rather drab attempt to recoup their losses from the god-awful SFxT.
Available for over 10 years on PlayStation and Dreamcast, not much attention

Biohazard Operation Raccoon City
バイオハザード オペレーション・ラクーンシティ


XB360 / PS3 - The latest entry in the Biohazard series is a depressing affair.
With development duties outsourced to some random Canadian studio,
Operation Raccoon City ends up as just another Western-style shooter
featuring unpleasant characters, dull environments and military fetishism.
With Biohazard 6 due in October, this one is hard to recommend in any way.
Available for Xbox 360 and PS3 in 'Standard' and 'Limited' editions.
