    I'm really sorry to hear he's not feeling well. My wife and I met him at a fan event after one of the Distant Worlds concerts once. He's incredibly kind and very genuine...just an amazing person overall.

    I hope he takes all the time he needs to recover. He seems to give a lot of himself to the fans of his music. While I really appreciate that, I hope he takes care of his own health and well-being first!

    Seriously! 2017 was brutal! ...In a good way.

    Honestly though, my personal backlog probably stretches all the way back to the NES. :(

    It was a good choice of screenshots, though! That gray beetle thingy is all of us when we're dreaming of how amazing some game that may or may not ever come out must be.

    I agree with everything you said here! Also, I love the image you chose to go along with this article. Crunch time really does sort of feel like like fighting the Demon Wall. But way less fun, and way more harmful.

    I've never thought of a game as being "pop" before. But you know what? You make a really good point. Those are some really "pop" games. And many of them are "pop" in ways that are completely different from one another. But yep...they're pop.

    I was going to jokingly ask "gee, I wonder who wrote the description for this article?" But then it hit me that I could totally see Kat writing "Nadia is perfect."

    Either way, yes. Nadia is perfect. :)

    @Arvis-Jaggamar They made Ni No Kuni, and are finishing up Ni No Kuni 2 right now. They also released a bunch of Yo-Kai Watch games as well as Fantasy Life. Oh yeah...and lots of Professor Layton.

    Sorry if it turns out that I misinterpreted what you meant meant by "what the heck happened to them?", and you already knew all this.

    Man, these are great articles. Thank you!

    I played A Link to the Past not too long after it came out (not that I could have told you the release date back then)...I think I was in 8th grade at the time? So it's been so long now that I can't even remember if I had the existence of the Dark World spoiled for me before I got there. I know that I had the World of Ruin spoiled for me in Final Fantasy 3/6 by the physical map that came with the game. But the Dark World might have actually been a surprise for me.

    Regardless, I do remember that I knew before facing Agahnim that it couldn't be the end of the game. I'd played Zelda 1 & 2, and I knew there had to be more hearts, more dungeons, more secrets, more...stuff. I don't think I knew just HOW much more stuff, though. Because I do remember feeling blown away when I realized that not only was I NOT done, I'd really only just begun.

    I've never played a Nier or Drakengard game before, but after reading up on Yoko Taro and watching some let's play videos, I gained an appreciation for how creative this series is. Then all of the positive reviews of Nier: Automata hit, and buying this game became a no-brainer. I've already ordered it, and now I just have to wait for it to arrive.

    I usually wait for games to get cheaper before I pull the trigger, but I'm too excited for this game, and I want to support it. Can't wait for it to show up!

    Thanks for another insightful review!

    Doug Bowser...with a name like that, you HAVE to work for Nintendo. It was obviously the will of his ancestors.
