  1. I wonder who the other company is? Well the way Microsoft buying up everything I wouldn’t be surprised if it was them.

    1. Regardless it sounds like he is ecstatic about his new position and most likely game he is working on. Sucks about dragon quest and hope they can continue the series being as good if not better than I has been and I also hope it doesn’t go the way FF has.
