This one's pretty garbage, and I was only reminded of this bland leather-clad mountain of boobs and objectification because of Vinny playing Ninja Gaiden recently.

Surprised this wasn't mentioned yet either - but likely because it's so bad it's forgettable.

I had already made some thoughts earlier and elsewhere, but I'll leave them here as well, to maybe add to the conversation as to why he felt important to me and maybe others, or at least as much as someone can leave behind even if you've never met them before in person:

With all his different personas and his re-inventions, the many faces of Bowie gave some of us the inspired confidence and permission to be whoever we wanted to be, and ultimately to just be ourselves - no matter how weird or different we are.

This is Major Tom to Ground Control.

I'm stepping through the door, and I'm floating in a most peculiar way, and the stars look very different today.

For here, am I sitting in a tin can, far above the world.

Planet Earth is blue, and there's nothing I can do.

See you later, Starman. Thanks.

This looks pretty great, except holy shit that dialogue is still crap and sounds even worse coming out as actual voice now, haha.

It was passable enough to read when I was an ignorant 16 yeah old, but yikes, hearing it now like this makes it ROUGH.

@gaspower: I was just about to say that too. If anything, they'll probably have a better idea of the cultural aspects of this story that the majority of us don't really have any good introspective on.

Personally, workers in the Konami games division should find themselves another job. This is no way of living.

While you're not wrong, this comment and others like it aren't taking into consideration the economics and socio-economics of the situation and cultural Japan as a whole. There's a lot more to it than just "go find a new job if you don't like it".

If someone told me the most charming FMV game of 2015 features a David Tennant impression gone completely off the rails, I certainly wouldn't believe it - but here we are. Wonderful work chaps, please keep this good thing going and best of luck to future projects!

And rock on, good people.

This is a truly wonderful read. I obviously don't know you, but I am happy for you and applaud your courage to write this to a bunch of strangers nonetheless. Congratulations, and best of luck!
