I haven't yet had a chance to see what MARDEK IV is, but from what other people say, it doesn't sound...MARDEK-y. MARDEK brought me to fighunter, and I-III are fantastic games. I played them through once, tediously doing all the sidequests and getting all the weapons, and when I accidentally cleared my browser cache and wiped out my saves, I happily did it all over again. But IV sounds like it's departed from the MARDEK "universe".

It sound's like you're going Final Fantasy with this series; as in, every succeeding game takes the best parts of the last one and throws in new stuff to make it completely different. While this does make for good games, it doesn't make for....what's the word.../unified/ games. I love MARDEK for it's story, but also for it's atmosphere-The battle system, the dialogue, character art...if one of these things changes into a whole new style...it's not the same.

Here's an example: The Simpsons. Take a look at the very earliest episodes, then at the newer ones. The animation style has changed, and the "feel" is changed as well.

So, while I appreciate your artistic skills, Pseudo, please take my advice and keep the MARDEk games feeling...MARDEK-y. Don't change the battle system, keep the art the way it is-I want to feel that I'm in the same universe.

Hell, I'll throw in one more example. Harry Potter. Imagine if the first 3 book were written by J.K. Rowling, then the 4th was written by, oh, Tolkein. I'll leave you to ponder on that.

FH has not dissolved because the owner is an arse. FH has dissolved because there is NO owner. Pseudo is on once a week at most. That hardly qualifies as being an owner. Hand the reins to someone else.

I have been on so many sites that all say "If you ask to be a mod, no." Then again, you might make a good mod, Oni.

Pseudo, I wish you the best of luck on the new site, and I may join myself. I'm far too new to be in that hated minority...right?

Don't forget about making MARDEK, that's a great story if not a spectacular game, and certainly one that should not die.

Perhaps consider selling the site domain to a moderator or another game developer? Or just giving it away?

You're welcome. My apologizes for deep-frying my words in sarcasm-it's just part of my Choleric temperament. I don't hand out false platitudes either-it's a form of lying. If I say something, then I believe it to be true. So, I reiterate: You're welcome. And there's no sarcasm in that.

Excellent retort. I can't find anything to nitpick in that comment...well done, you may be one of the most wise and intelligent people I've met. Nice touch at the very end, using my own words "against" me, so to speak. I have. I googled Oscar Wilde-Remarkable person...

Yeah, Pseudo's a bit burnt-out. He needs some good rest, some inspiration. Maybe he should find a nice girl, they're usually good at that.

wit? I was going for sarcasm. I also use "name-calling" in the sense of labeling, in that is reduces the depth of a debate by bringing in a charged word or two instead of some logical paragraphs of content.

It is not my duty to try and change people. It is theirs. I can suggest to the best of my ability, but if they refuse to change it is not my fault. Personal responsibility is of the utmost importance to me.

Also, who is Oscar Wilde? I fear I am not yet cultured enough to know this person.

Enough talking about this. Pseudo will never read this. It's not even realistic-where would he have the time to write anything besides dialogue for his games? It's not like he could just copy over the dialogue and add descriptive elements.

I think pseudo can pull it off. A commercial (Not camercial!) would help, but is not necessary. The point here is for pseudo to make money, and it's a matter of balancing the costs of a commercial with the increased income from it, as well as the time/effort in making a commercial in the first place.
