I know a lot of folks loved Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne. I know a fair few who think it's the best MegaTen game of all time, and it was Nocturne's unique look and balls-hard difficulty that helped pave the way for Atlus' eventual rise to power.

Well, this news just made my day. It seems that the ESRB ratings, always a good source for accidentally outing new games, has opted to rate a very old game: Suikoden II. Konami's classic JRPG (and one of my favorite games of ...
