I'm making sure to tell everyone about this game, and some people have really listened. Word of mouth will help the sales pick up.

That has actually been the main driving force behind this cult hit, hardcore gamers playing it, loving it, and recommending it. Which is what I have done but most of my gamer friends have kind of fizzled out rather than become a hardcore gamer like me, they don't appreciate the challenge of games like this. The first question I always get asked when I tell them about the difficulty is, "Well, you can make it easier right?" no! what's the use of a difficult, challenging experience if you're just gonna puss out and coast on super easy mode.

Week 10

 

Still selling pretty well.  I imagine that it's getting harder to find now.  If you haven't got a copy by now, better get one while the gettin' is still good.

 

America - Week 1 + Week 2 + Week 3 + Week 4 + Week 5 + Week 6 + Week 7 + Week 8 + Week 9 + Week 10 = Total

              105,752  + 38,937 + 29,899 + 27,916  + 26,274  + 26,183  + 17,323  + 23,786 + 18,906 + 22,913 = 337,889

  

Japan - Week 1 + Week 2 + Week 3 + Week 4 + Week 5 + Week 6 + Week 7 + Week 8 + Week 9 + Week 10 = Total

           38,966  +  18,445  + 13,087  + 8,649  +  4,994  +  4,553  +  3,009  +  2,777  +  2,666  +  1,922  =  99,068  (around 140,000 lifetime)

Those are some nice spikes on weeks 8 and 10.

I know I convinced one of my friends at work to get it.

 

The first message he sent to me while playing it was "I'm getting owned"

 

But, he did manage to beat Old King Doran at lvl 25. Said it took him an hour to do it, but he beat him.

He's going to get his friend to buy it next, cuz he likes RPGs, Legend of Zelda, WoW and Diablo. So he's interested in this game.

I'm just amazed this game is selling so much better in the US than it is in Japan, anyone have any ideas why?
