Square Enix announced today that Dirge of Cerberus is slated for a PAL release in November 2006. The PAL version of the game will include all of the improvements made for the North American one. Once we get a more concrete release date, we'll be sure to post it. In the meantime, you can read the press release here.

Site Updates: Dirge of Cerberus, New Articles, More
The DC FAQ and DC Images & Media pages have been updated with new info and wallpapers, respectively.
And speaking of DC, I've written up a review of the game (the short version: DC is decent but not great). In addition, there are two other new articles up, "Aeris: Daughter of Jenova?" by Lunaris Victoria and "A Gap Already Filled" by me. All three of these articles can be found in the "2006" subsection of the Article Archive.
Also, there's a new game available in the Downloads section, FF7 Mastermind by Daniel Shorten. And under Game Information, the FFVII Name Origins page has seen a small revision.
Finally, as those of you on the Forums may already be aware, Reno is taking a hiatus from his duties as an Administrator. As Jin is filling in for him during this time, I'd like to take this opportunity to officially welcome him aboard!

Dirge of Cerberus In Stores Tuesday
Yes, I'm still alive, and for the most part, this is just a quick update on things. I've been busy with a large project recently (see The Blue Shinra Project for details, if you wish) which is a major reason why there haven't been any site updates lately. Thanks to everyone who has sent in submissions lately; as a fair number of them are now in the queue, submissions will be temporarily closed, save for news items.
Now, this isn't so much news as a reminder, but for those of you living in North America, Dirge of Cerberus ships on August 15. Early reviews of this newly-revised version of the game have been mixed, ranging from favorable to poor; some of the more prominent reviews thus far include IGN's, which gave it a 70 (out of 100) (source: Metacritic) and EGM, which gave it an average score of 4.7 (out of 10.0) (source: CAG forums). Of course, the Citadel plans to review DC as well, so stay tuned!
