Yay Elk, I just wanna say I really appreciate how you kept this joint online. It could still take off. Miracles happen. Some sites get going after a long while. Motley Crues get signed to Elektra Records. Either way, I really love the effort you put into it.

Spinnerweb: Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter comes out in five days. I miss Phoenixgaiangel a lot thinking back to years ago on Fuse when he was such a big fan of the first game and was waiting for Second Chapter for so long.
It was a long, hard battle for XSEED and Carpe Fulgur to localize Second Chapter. The head of Carpe Fulgur eventually gave in because of depression and XSEED had to work by themselves to finish the game's localization. It's nine years old in Japan by now, and only now it's coming out in English.
I tried since 2011 to beat the First Chapter on the PSP, but personal life ALWAYS got in the way and I never ended up finishing it despite many, many attempts. But the games are really easy to run and I'm going to finish First Chapter on the PC and then Second Chapter and maybe someday they'll have Third Chapter out.
In Phoenixgaiangel's honour. I hope he's happy wherever he is these days D:
I don't get why they wanted to stay divided when this is the closest thing to Fuse. But yeah, people moved on. Hard to believe it's already been two years since Fuse pretty much died. I never like moving on and always would have wanted to keep the old gang together, but then Fuse was my online home for so long. Can't have been the same sentimental value for many people, I guess. hbu
