Considering the game was released almost a year ago (or at least half a year ago depending on where you are), and we've discussed every single possible aspect of the damn thing, is it surprising? And does it really matter at all?
You know, after reading some of the comments on that second pag, I gotta say that many Nintendo fans out there are selfish jerks. They honestly think that Nintendo deserves such hatred because of the shut down?
Don't they realize that hacking a game is essentially like saying "your game wasn't cool enough, so I'll make it better!" and more or less serves as an insult to Nintendo in the first place?
I'm happy that Nintendo tolerates that much fan stuff on the Internet so far, including countless fansites. It's understandable when hacking their games goes too far for them. There are companies (independent of their business) which don't even allow harmless fansites. For example, you aren't able to upload screenshots of old East German television shows on the Internet on German sites (German law hasn't "fair use", so a vast amount of German fansites is actually illegal by law) because the copyright holders forbid any unauthorized publication. Not even screenshots, I tell you! That's why there's almost nothing from East German television on YouTube. Thankfully, Nintendo is different.

Maybe Man Frog was meaning it bad to hack because it's a console game not a PC game.
As Qu, said Vault . . . er . . . Valve allows people to do mods of it's game like Half Life, TF2 and so on. (They have enven allowed maps made by player in TF2 map packs).
Another reason they like people to mods, is that Valve has in the past employed people who have made really impressive game mods like Team Fortress Classic. (Epic software (Unreal Tournament/Gears of War developers) also keeps their eye on very good modders for employment as well).
But console games don't get official mods because the console and game have to get tampered with as well. It may even be against the warrenty of the game as well.
There are some console games that do allow modding though, such as Unreal Tournament on the PS3, where characters such a Master Chief and Bender (Futurama) have beee put into the game by modders.

Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
