Nowhere in their reply, they've stated that elsewhere though. ;)

'Elsewhere' is not here and now. To me the e-mail looks perfectly reasonable and understandable given the circumstances.

The bottom line is that what's done is done. The OP was not randomly selected and the public demo is now available. Go enjoy the demo and then enjoy the game when it's released. If you think the reason you were not randomly selected is because your house is green instead of purple, you own a cat instead of a dog, or you left a checkbox unchecked, then go and change these things and hope that next time you're in the 'selected' group. There still will be no guarantee.

The problem is that you're assuming you were intentionally left out of the demo promotion because you left that box unchecked when they're trying to explain that it was chosen randomly. Even if you had checked the box, you were not guaranteed a code after having reached Platinum status last year. It's the luck of the draw, and as they've also explained, the public demo is now available and any unredeemed codes are no longer good. I'm not sure what you want from them at this point, and I can easily see why they've deemed this 'closed'.

Nice to see this thread here, reading it made me want to jump in again. I do love Rune Factory games, got them all. But somehow I get sidetracked by other games playing this one. Maybe because you have to really be immersed to get ahead and I don't always have time for that. But I'm going to jump back in! Because soon we will have Fantasy Life on our hands, and having played the Japanese game I can tell you it reminded me a lot of Rune Factory!

lol i kinda want to jump back into my file but i forget what i was doing with everything and plus Fantasy Life is right around the corner... sigh, decisions D:

@Undead_Terror: that's cool re: Europe getting the entire first game at once, but when i bought the game myself a month or two ago it still only had one episode (of the first game) available. I'm asking whether there's been another episode (of the first game) released yet maybe to coincide with the sale? :3

wait.

aren't you the same guy who posted the thread about how much you hate having 'help' or an 'easy mode' or whatever in Nintendo games now, like the special blocks in NSMB games and stuff to help people get past too-challenging levels and win the game? because if so, i think you've answered your own question — there's no problem at all, just a few vocal people who denounce the availability of this 'help' to others who may feel the need to indulge.

I'm amused just how many people see this thread as some sort of threat to their freedom to buy whatever videogames they want. It's my opinion, that's it. If you opt to brag about making or buying crappy games on this thread, I'm gonna call you out. What do you expect?

If that's the purpose of this thread now, for you to heckle and personally encourage others to also heckle people who bought this game, I'm going to ask for an end to that, please. It may be your opinion, but there's no need for that sort of rudeness. :/

Spending money to be a troll is maybe even sadder than the existence of this game.

You're putting words into his mouth. Knowing bezerker99 and his taste in games, I'm fairly sure he figured he'd have fun playing it on a Nintendo system, so that's why he shelled out. Any inconvenience to yourself was purely coincidental.

I think everyone gets it. You want devs to put more effort into their games than this, and the dev showed up to put his foot squarely into his mouth, so congratulations — you've made your point and with the help of Tom's article, the gaming world has been made more aware of the dev's statement, for good or ill. You can't force people to only purchase and play games you think are worthwhile, though. There's enough room out there for laziness and ingenuity to coexist, and we as gamers are given the opportunity to pick and choose what we want, no more, no less. if I want to purchase and play a lazy game, I'm going to do so. If you or anyone else doesn't like it, that's too damn bad.

Sorry.

This isn't a flashcart, an emulator, nor is it homebrew — it's one of those 'gray area' things, and since piracy is neither the subject nor the goal (just a method of recording gameplay from a legit device using a legit cartridge), we're going to go ahead and let this go for now. If the discussion starts to go south down other tangents, though, we'll be more than happy to shut it down. Thanks for looking out for us! :3
