Final Viewpoint

[05/31/2010] So, I have determined that the misuse of plural pronouns in Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow are NOT due to a ridiculously bad translation. They are used deliberately because the protagonist is royalty! It's the royal "They!" The only other explanation is that the translators didn't know the difference between "they" and "you", and that's just too depressing to accept.

Tales of 2010 continues this month with Tales of Eternia. Get to playing, folks!

Six reviews again this week, all from different writers. We finally have a review for Resonance of Fate thanks to Ken Staples. This is also his first review. We also have reviews for Hexyz Force, Alpha Protocol, and Nier, as well as a retroview for Legend of Heroes: A Tear of Vermillion and an import review for Tactics Layer. We'll be back in a couple of weeks with more. Until then, enjoy!
