Following up on that article from Kotaku I mentioned in my Dungeon Travelers 2 post, I can agree on most of their recommendations. Aside from Dungeon Travelers 2 I've also played Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus and DmC. Those are really fun games and they play really well (ignoring Senran Kagura's excessive fanservice). I'm surprised as with most people that the Japanese loved Far Cry 3, which I haven't gotten my hands on yet but am looking for it to be on sale during the Steam Summer Sale.
Demon Gaze and 7th Dragon 2020 II are some RPG's I haven't really heard much of, but they do like like excellent games. The 7th Dragon series has never and localization and probably never will, but as Demon Gaze is a new IP, I'm hoping one of the niche developers here in the US like Atlus, Aksys, NIS America, or Xseed will pick it up.
NIS's The Guided Fate Paradox is coming over sometime in the Fall and I am looking forward to the spirtual sequel to Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman. That was a fun spin on the roguelike RPG genre and had quite a few cameos from Disgaea and various manga/anime. Hoping Guided Fate Paradox will do the same.
Soul Sacrifice is out right now but I haven't the opportunity try it out/ buy it, but the reviews have been positive. Macross 30 is something the states will never see but as new Macross fan I'll believe the Japanese to its quality.
