      I don't think that character's bad, though I haven't played Tales of Innocence R, so can't be 100% sure.

      @starcrunch061 http://hyouta.com/vesperia/ has everything translated. If you're ok with using a page while playing the game, then by all means, import it! The game is insanely amazing.

      Thanks for the info. There was a great reviewer on Amazon (Sean Rhodes) who raved about this game back in the day (of course, like all great reviewers on Amazon from back in the day, he's fallen out of favor with the new, fanboy-driven system there). He could read Japanese, though, so his words didn't speak to me.

       

      With your translation, I might finally have to get this bad boy.

      @Crispy_Oglop Again though, when you enter into a corporate environment you give up a certain amount of freedoms. EA is a company that's out to make $. That's what corporate structures are meant to do. They help keep the economic system on track. They're not charities that are there to care about peoples livelihoods.

       

      At the end of the day, like 17 of Viscerals last 20 games were failures. You can't work at any job with a 15% success rate and expect job security. You can point to micro transactions being forced on them as the reason their games fail but their games were flopping long before MT's came around.

       

      Visceral was a company that got lucky once and followed it up with a decent sequel. Other then that it's been failure after failure. They even dropped the ball with Hardline which should've been a layup for them.

       

      Here's my big thing, there's 0 evidence that finances or micro transactions had anything to do with it. Just a bunch of critics and youtubers saying whatever they can to get clickbait views. Meanwhile, there's tons of evidence to support my view point. But I guess evidence doesn't really matter anymore does it?

       

      At the end of the day, Visceral was a crappy company that got lucky once. People need to stop confusing their nostalgia for Dead Space with their emotions towards Visceral.

      @KingGuy420 - The whole 'corporate environment / giving up certain freedoms' stuff is very old school. Business has largely changed outside of big swathing companies like EA and it's counterparts. Yes - it is a business, and yes it is out to make money. However - how you treat your staff and the decisions you make around their work are actually not related to making money at all. In fact, positive staff treatment and business practices that consider the integrity of a company are statistically proven to improve the amount of money a business makes. Citing that it is charity for a company to care about someones livelihood is truly incorrect - which isn't opinion - again, it's fact. The leading companies in the world - the ones that will be around long after EA has disappeared are the ones that incorporate that level of care into their company profile.

       

      I'm not sure if you could attribute luck to Dead Space 2, granted Dead Space was a bit of a curve ball, but with all of the planning and time that went into the sequel (which still remains an action horror benchmark) leaves less to luck.

       

      I'm not confusing nostalgia for a game with a company at all, it's talking about business practices that aren't exclusive to EA. Warner Bros are also very proactive in this way. It's also pretty ignorant to dismiss every single YouTube video on this as clickbait. At the moment it's hot news. But the Dead Space 3 situation been a matter of record since about 2015. 

       

      This debate could go on for eons and eons and you are pretty entrenched in your own opinions, which is fair enough. But you are telling me there is no evidence, when you have examples like interviews out there with Ben Wanat - the director of Dead Space 3 giving testimonials on EA's involvement in the creative process. There are also countless companies which have met the same fate for a variety of similar reasons.

       

      [As a side note, i'm speaking as someone who worked in the games industry for 10 years from 2005 for Blizzard, Bioware, EA and ZeniMax.]

       

      I don't think there is much more that can be said around this topic from my end, so i'll leave it to everyone else. Thanks for engaging in debate and see ya soon. Peace!
