Live A Live’s launch this week is a reminder that even if a Japanese game doesn’t come to the US for decades, that doesn’t mean it never will. With localization expert Greg Moore in the guest-host chair, we chat about five games that took ages to get English releases, after which we sharpen our claws on Stray and MultiVersus, speculate about John Romero’s new shooter, and get into the weeds with your childhood anecdotes that kids today just wouldn’t understand.
Question of the Week: Have you ever imported a game? Which one was it, why did you import, and what was your experience doing so?
