I realize the principal of the thing, it just sucks that this is the way it has to be.

Translation patches would be so easy, we already have translated dialogue...

And the chance of a handheld translation is becoming slimmer and slimmer...

That's what I meant, it's lacking in that genre, and this game could have provided a good homebrew engine for making such games. Anachronox is good, someone stole my copy so I never got to play much of it. I'd play more if there were more like it. Too bad they fucked up the ports of FF7 and FF8 but I guess cracking the PC gaming market doesn't provide enough money to be an incentive to do well. Plus exclusive deals with console makers don't usually leave much room for these.
> A first person dungeon crawler? Fuck that.
Yeah a lot of people realized with Shining Force and Phantasy Star just how boring that could get. You're talking to someone who completed both... But wouldn't exactly want to do it again.
