Heya guys! I'm the newest translator monkey around here, thanks to Castomel's public hire, so be nice to me, okay? Otherwise, I'll make you rue the day I ever translated FFVI!

BUT! I am not here to plug myself! I am here to talk about Strugarden! Well, kiddies, here you go!

    For some reason this news stinks like a April fools joke to me. But that's just me.

    Oh well.

    Is this a joke? If not, then RPGamer is ruined and all I have to say is...

    If you can't tell that this has anything to do with April Fool's Day, then you're ruined.

    What, you don't believe me that this game exists?

    Do you want more proof than this?

    I believe this is the worst April Fools Day joke I have ever seen on RPGamer

    How bout offering a paid position and having an insane application that is due by midnight, and seeing how many people apply

    I think that would be funny

    When I saw "Ted Woolsey's" post in the newbie topic, the date didn't even occur to me. But yeah, looks like an April Fool's joke to me.

    Course, I could be wrong, and we'll look dumb if April 2nd rolls around and the whole thing turns out to be true. tounge.gif

    Edit: hehe, well, that link *is* very convincing tounge.gif

    even if Strugarden is real, certainly Ted Woosely is not...and the editorial section is looking spoofy today as well.

    edit: found several japanese games sites with strugarden...looks like the game is actually real. Still, Ted Woosely at RPGamer is not...And I really find the editorial section amusing, if not difficult to look at directly.

    Hhhmmm... I have to agree.... This is an April Fool's Joke... But I really don't see the humor in it... Us, as a public, demand the best of the best... Final Fantasy... Legend of Zelda... Pokemon...

    So even if it wasn't a April Fool's Joke... Who would buy such a game... It would have to revolutionize the industry, like the forementioned games...

    But nice try....

    I'm not really sure what you're trying to say here.

    It is a real game. And if it's not, it's a damn good trick, being that this game is mentioned on different websites, and has several impressive and real looking screenshots/art pics.

    In regards to your "the best of the best" comment, I'm confident in saying that this is a rediculous assertion. There are lots of people in the "public" you're speaking of who happen to have a strong interest in games that aren't multi-million dollar hits. If this was the case, FireMyst would've made sure the words "Onimusha Tactics" never ever appeared anywhere on this site laugh.gif

    In addition to that, it's RPGamer's responsibility to report on RPGs indiscriminately, because of the fact that there are people out there who enjoy some of the more obscure, non-blockbuster titles out there. You can't just cater to a select group, even if it's the majority. You have to cater to as many people as you can.

    But maybe I'm reading into your post too much smile.gif

    Yeah, "Ted Woolsey" is a fake. For one, and as far as I can remember, he hasn't had any involvement with Crave since their in-house development team (Craveyard) was folded after the debacle that was Shadow Madness (which I didn't think was nearly as bad as everyone else did, even if it hardly set my world on fire).

    Well, I have to admit, we haven't really done anything for a long time. ?I mean, heck, this should be proof enough.

    I know you won't believe that I'm real until tomorrow, so trying to convince you now is useless. ?Ah well, carry on!

    Dear Ted Woolsey,

    You are awesome.

    P.S. Can I ever be as awesome as you? eh.gif Do I need to take up martial arts for that?

    I think last year's gag was more amusing. This doesn't even read like a real news story. The grammar's way off, and the tone is completely different. If they were going to fake a news story, they should at least have done a semi-realistic one.

    yes only worse.
    also I'd like to comment that today's april fools jokes are horrible. The ones I told castomel to put up were much much better and I even offered to help out. OHHH but no they go and put up like one joke and then a bunch of random nonsense that isn't even fun. (like the fan art and ask google stuff) /me is angry

    In all honest, I am Ted Woolsey.

    As Ted Woolsey, this thread has brought me great satisfaction. The response was wonderful, the fan mail absolutely priceless.

    The truth: Ted Woolsey doesn't work for us. In fact, I couldn't find him anywhere. However, the information provided about him as about as accurate as you'll find, and the game Strugarden is indeed real. That picture in his bio is him, too.
