Should I buy the limited-edition Gyakuten Kenji despite not knowing Japanese?
Yes. It is pretty and I might actually learn a few kanji this way.
No, go play a game you already own, dingbat!
Context: Gyakuten Kenji spoilers and rips have hit the 'net. And I've had the LE in my play-asia cart for a month, dithering. I am not good at resisting spoilers. (Though I do promise to be very careful with spoilercuts/etc. here.)
I've had "learn Japanese" on my to-do list for, er, 3 years now? And have learned v. v. little. I own a bunch of dual-language games and one Japanese-only Fire Emblem game, but FE is strategy, not interactive novel.
ETA: and my iPod has gone from occasional sadfaces -> whack -> happy iPod to dead. I guess I'll remedy that instead.
