I was going over Jessica 'the boxhead' Chavez's blog on Solatorobo: Red the Hunter (http://www.1up.com/do/blogEntry?bId=9088029) and all she did was defend anthropomorphism like it was some sort of plague. I know that shooters where you kill virtual people are all the rage right now, but if you like Japan, Pokemon, Xseed and anime and video games in general then you're likely going to buy Solatorobo simply because of the characters. Why is Xseed making such a big deal out of it? Why are you guys trying to promote the 'crushing metal on metal action' instead of the fun platforming and cute characters?!?!?
I know you want to sell big, but this is ridiculous. You want the people who like to 'murder' each other online buy your game and all of this effort feels like Cirque du So Lame just arrived in town.
