    Hey guys. been lurking these forums and the old wiki for a while.
    Finally got around to posting something (hopefully) worthwhile.

    Interesting little read:

    ""When it was close to final I spent close to two hours playing it and
    after two hours I was still standing at the beginning of the game. I
    said, "This is crap. This is an unbelievably bad game, so I put it
    aside.""

    God I love the stupid things people say. You can basically say the same thing about Daggerfall, Ultima games, or any other hard RPG. Just because you aren't a majestic dragon-born world-saver destined to pick flowers and beat up huge demons within the first 5 minutes of play, doesn't mean the game is crap.

    What a douche.

    Anyway, there is no telling how many great game were not brought over seas because of people like that ignoramus, lol I'm going to say he is very pissed of , Atlus is one of my favorite game company's so, I'm happy all this transpired the way it did.

    The problem here is that they have some guy who probably plays 6 hours of 8 different games a week making these calls. Don't have someone working 80 hours a week test the games for import, have someone who really knows games do it. Probably 1 person per genre, at least.

    While I'm at it, give the job to all those 20-something nerds who can't find a job in this economy right now. It's not like you need to offer that much for a job that has you playing games all day. OF course, they need to be supervised by one of these higher ups, or at least give a detailed report, but I bet half this forum would take that job on.

    Sounds like the person testing DS was having a bit of a rage-quit. Calling the game crap and being in the same spot for two hours.

    Considering Demons was published by Atlus (in NA, atleast.), one ought to have been expecting something painfully hard and rage-inducing.

    People shouldn't blame the game if they're no good at it.

    lol i love this, glad they had sense to admit they made the wrong call letting exclusivity go out the window.

    anyone else hoping for reconciliation and a bigger budget? big grin
