Forgive me, Shadow. It completely slipped my mind that the books without the pretty pictures in them confuse you. Gimme just a second and I'll go search for a picture of Captain Kirk putting his hand to his face and then, once I find it, I'll post it. That way, you can follow along just fine. 

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Be nice. I only noticed after it was pointed out myself.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

You have no idea how hard I'm trying to be nice. And, if I say so myself, I'm doing a pretty good job. At least I scratched the first response which came to mind.  Gimme some credit.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Hey, Jason, gonna re-vamp the ECA's logo? Can't nobody but those already indoctrinated in the way of the secret handshake figure out what that thing symbolizes.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

He's talking about this:

Is it immediately apparent to you that the logo is an "E", "C", and "a"?

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Think back to the very first time you saw it, Andrew. Honestly, was it immediately apparent to you back then?  

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

No, it wasn't and that was my point.  I don't think it's a bad logo but I feel it's a bit too clever for its own good.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

It'd be less confusing, I think, if the "a" was an "A." And if the "E" wasn't so often rendered in white. Against a white backgound, it ends up looking like two legs.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Welcome abord Mr. Anderson, im sure you'll be a great addition to the ECA.

InfophileI know the ZE series was in the red in Japan, but international series boosted it to profitability. That may not mean it's more profitable in the west, but it does mean ZE3 wouldn't exist without the western market.07/04/2015 - 7:54am

Matthew Wilson@mast I dont know, but I do know it got a cult fallowing here.07/03/2015 - 6:22pm
MastermuneWasn't the Zero Escape series more popular here than in Japan?07/03/2015 - 6:19pm
Matthew Wilson@mast given the game was revealed in the US, I wouldnt be shocked if it was released at the same time.07/03/2015 - 6:15pm
MastermuneI don't trust the big AAA worldwide simultaneous releases though.07/03/2015 - 5:57pm
Mastermune@Infophile I have come to the conclusion that smaller games like zero escape, JRPG's and the like are actually worth preordering sinc they are limited quantities and since they usually release in japan first we know if there are any issues.07/03/2015 - 5:56pm
Infophile@Matthew! Awesome news. I'd preorder on that shout alone if I didn't have a policy against preordering anymore.07/03/2015 - 5:16pm

Matthew Wilson@pnx I am guessing a ddoss since that is what happened to neogaf, but sony needs to do a investment in psn as a whole. steam is still the most reliable and fastest digital platform I use.07/03/2015 - 3:06pm

Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.gamespot.com/videos/the-point-destiny-the-hardcore-gamers-slot-machine/2300-6425852/ this is very good, and well researched.07/03/2015 - 12:41pm
InfophileOther features to become standard: The ability to remap controls however the hell I want. Quicksave at any time (especially for handheld and mobile games). Plus everything Andrew said07/03/2015 - 10:43am
InfophileRegion-freeing becomes tricky for games with a strong online component though, especially when the servers are run by different branches in different regions.07/03/2015 - 10:41am
InfophileI'm in favor of getting rid of region-locking for any purchased games. I can understand an exception for free, ad-supported games, as many ads are only relevant in certain regions, and it's a ridiculous hassle to get ads for all regions.07/03/2015 - 10:40am
