Oh man...and here I thought you were going to be massacring all the cute Etrian Odyssey dudes. But, is it like EO or not?

On the bright side, Dizasutaaaa is looking mighty awesome.

Infinite Line sounds so freaking amazing. I'm glad there's a window for release in the Spring; it sounded as if it might have been a Fall 09 release.

Hopefully the product at least somewhat matches their ambitions.

Why would they when their first one bombed. Besides, they'd probably to prefer to have funding from Sony when it comes to developing on Sony's systems.
