Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Forget politics, apparently, this is one lesson the entertainment industry needs to learn.
Springboarding off Fenrir’s post, the resident Pokemon “expert” will lend his opinion. Okay, so you’ve got feudal era Japan and Pokemon together; how is this not a recipe for awesome? Koei and Game Freak team up to bring one tactical RPG to another RPG of great strategy. The only thing that could make this game better would be a hack-n-slash with horse-kicking (or I guess Rapidash for this case) action. It’s over the top, it’s campy, and…it’s a huge hook for an unlikely crowd.
