    Oh, no. I don't know what happened internally after we failed to get I and IV. I actually think there are a number of people at Atlus now that DO care and ARE fans, but the environment has become too corporate and less fan-friendly for their influence to matter for "small" series like Growlanser (which I believe could be huge if they were jsut cultivated). And I don't think there was much choice for the PSP version other than to remove the voice acting. HOWEVER, if we had done it now, I probably would have put up a survey asking if fans would pay $3 more (what I estimate it would have cost, amortized per initial unit) to have voice acting and then done a presale and not cut it if that's what the fans wanted.

    And that is why I will always support your company. I mean how much trouble is it to actually ask the fans what they want and what they will pay for, rather than just estimate it based on random other games sales figures.

    Giving them the benefit of the doubt, it's much easier for us because we don't have corporate overlords to answer to. I'm sure it's much harder for them to get more fan-friendly features through - until we prove it's profitable, then everyone copies it.

    Atlus and Square-Enix are ruled out, I gather. Are there any other companies that are completely against letting their games get localized by other companies? Have you tried contacting Nippon Ichi about their PSP games, like Blue Roses and Criminal Girls?

    Sega, Capcom and Konami are possible choices for games
    Megaman Legends and Legends 2 PSP
    Suikoden/Suikoden II PSP
    Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity

    If Vic wouldn't mind trying to bring over Queen's Blade Spiral Chaos and Record of Agarest War Marriage that would be great

    Also there is Level 5

    Wasn't the Legends series held off from digital release because of licensing hell on Capcom's own side?

    Is the current plan to focus on games without a ton of text right now (get a lot out quickly, grow the company), or focus on select quality titles?

    The PS1 versions were but the psp versions didn't make it over here due to Sony of America's policy against straight ports to PSP but that was back when the psp was new

    Quality titles, regardless of text volume, because I'm a macochist.
