    Thanks for the updates! It’s a weird, but definitely not unwelcome, feeling to see Nier being so anticipated by so many people, from the viewpoint of someone outside Japan where it was much less popular.

    It shall make it into the top10!

    humble he was, yet preeeeeetty wrong, I can see it making it into the top10 at least

    rekka what’s your opinoin about 8-4 altering the game?

    • I have very high regard for 8-4 and I don’t understand the panic that seems rampant on various forums online. There is a very big difference between TRANSLATION and LOCALIZATION. Unfortunately, this fact seems to be alluding the masses…

      My advice: If you want your game 100% unaltered or untouched, learn the original language and play the original game then. There is *NO WAY* to avoid even the slightest bit of change between languages–that’s just the way it is.

      • passby

        what i’m afraid (and i think most of the people) are not really the ” change between languages” but game content being completly cut out

        • I find this very unlikely. I think a lot of people are getting a little too worked up over this…
