I am a gamer, like many of the individuals on this site. In the ongoing pursuit to find a gaming website to settle in, with a community that cares, I would like to think I've found my home for now. I used to belong to IGN (back in my grade school days) but that crowd was very immature and too fanboyish. Next was 1Up but that was doing it for me. Game Informer and Joystiq's communities made fairly good people but they were scare. Then I found Kotaku. A glorious site where I could call my home. For the last 3 1/2 year, Kotaku had brought me much joy in a smart and competent community. I could discuss topics about games and even gather great feedback. I even had time to discuss off-topic subjects and still the community was there with me. I used to comment several times a day and checked their site frequently. But then Gawker's authority happened, the key figure heads departed, the the site had gone through an overhaul so drastic, that most of the members, especially the ones that gave to site its wit and charm, had moved on. I foolishly stayed. My commenting had been reduced to about once a month. Then I got an email. Polygon. It's still far too early to tell if this is it, but with the people behind this site's foundation, it's a damn good start. I'll stick around to see how this site evolves but for now, this seems to be my new home.
Sorry about that, I was having a bit of a difficult day and vented my frustration in a very negative manner.
I’m glad all you got from what I had to say was that bit at the end. Thank you so much for contributing to the discussion. But I’ll respond to your inquiry, nonetheless. The article says that it’s available on PS2 and GC without mention that the PS2 version never came to the West. Pardon me for being informative.
This would’ve made an awesome Wii U game, you know, because the first one’s on the NINTENDO GameCube and, you know, so is its sequel, on a NINTENDO console. So it would, kinda make sense to release for the NINTENDO Wii U, you know, because it’s also capable of HD. Also, the PS2 version of Symphonia wasn’t available outside Japan.
Since there doesn’t seem to be a May thread yet, I’ll just post this here for a bit. I’m about to color this soon.
