Out with the old Enix guys in with the newer SquareEnix guys. Not sure if it's good either. SquareEnix have been on the right track recently. You know what they say about to many chiefs.

I think youre right. I think were in a funny position of having the right corporate people, but the wrong creative people. Im tired of Nomura. He continues to disappoint, IMO.
