Wtf? Did my comment get randomly deleted? All I was saying was that I was pleasantly surprised at how Octopath is being received outside of just the gaming community. Helps to show that there's definitely a healthy market for retro-inspired games that push the envelope and don't just rely on copying older games 1:1. Like Celeste and Sonic Mania before it, Octopath seems to continue that trend.

Not surprised Mashima made that mistake. He's known for working absolutely obscene hours. I'm talking 19 hour days, at least five days a week. It's all got to bleed together after a while.

Not that anyone would be interested, but Ichirou Mizuki sang the "I Am Impact!" them from Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon.
