[QUOTE] Konami dropped the ball so long ago that I don't know if there's any point in picking it back up again. I fe [/URL][/b][/s][/i][color=660000]-- Message too long, Autoquote has been Snipped --[/color][/QUOTE] I remember reading somewhere that the original Suikoden team was disbanded a while ago... So Konami has virtually lost all its RPG know-how. I think the situations is explained [URL=http://www.4gamer.net/games/132/G013230/20110721001/]here[/URL]. Thus, for better or worse this new GenSui is going to be developed by TriAce, while having the same director as the previous Tierkreis. Regarding Konami's loss of RPG mastery, as you probably already know, Yoshitaka Murayama, director, scenario writer and, well, "father" of the first Suikodens, left Konami for good on the middle of GenSui 3's development (which explains why, while being arguably the best game on the series, it had certain parts that seemed kind of half baked). Recently there were some [URL=http://www.bm.ai/modules/wordpress/index.php?p=65]rumors[/URL] of him receiveng an offer from "certain company" and "crossing the proverbial Rubicon" again, but seemingly it all ended in nothing. So the good ol' GenSui is lost forever, it seems. [QUOTE]Outlaws of the Marsh goodness[/QUOTE] I thoroughly recommend everybody to read this book, specially if you liked RoTK and Journey to the West. While it has its flaws and surely can get repetitive, it has plenty of awesome moments. The first book is one of the most memorable reads you'll ever find. But be warned: gallant and corageous as they might be, this is a tale of wrecked brigands and rebellious outcasts, so certain passages can be a bit difficult to stomach. Albeit thoroughly enjoyable, I wouldn't call it exactly an edifying read... Not in vain the old chinese saying advised the youth not to read "Outlaws of the Marsh" and the old not to read "Three Kingdoms"!
