    There are some minor issues, missing credits and two not-100%-finished reviews, but I'm traveling today and wanna get this out there to see the what people think & get some feedback over the holidays. :)

    page 210 "and the market became"
    became what?

    Really liked the opening paragraph on the page 6:)

    Way of the Samurai 4 review has convinced me to try it :)

    The entire 1985-1989 intro is a mess. It seems to be talking about the 2000s instead, and it has too many unfinished sentences. :P

    Yeah, that's what I meant in the "EDIT" of the original post... all these historical pages somehow are a mess... I'm trying to sort that out and find the finished texts

    I blame my new laptop, the screen is too small, I couldn't read the text in the quick preview and just checked "yup, there's SOME text there" when doing the final pass. :oops:

    Also you still haven't updated my Labyrinth of Touhou review to the latest version (see our PM conversation). It's still the original placeholder text.

    No matter, I'm gonna give all my reviews another editing pass anyway. (And write the two or three I still haven't. :P)

    Thanks! And I'll try to hunt people to do more of the fan-translation reviews, so that I can add more pages to the section and fit your updated review. :)

    I know I (probably) told you this already, but imo a separate fan translation section doesn't make much sense anyway. Who cares whether the game is fan- or officially translated? As long as it's good enough and available in English, it merits at least a full one-page entry.

    Honestly, it's more about page-count than anything else. Yes, I could dedicate one entire page to Labyrinth of Touhou 1 & 2 (and we will), but I wouldn't do that for all of them.

    I.e., the RPG Maker section recommends 7 games in 2 pages AND tells a brief story of RPG Maker... I wouldn't recommend that many if I had to write & spend a page on each.

    You should refresh your game reviews google sheet.

    Done - mostly.

    It's a bit frustrating to mark games as "assigned"... more than half of the people who ask for a game never delivers, and that ends up stopping others from trying. I've kept those taken by trustworthy people as assigned, but I think I'll wait for some sign of progress to start tagging games as taken.

    hey felipepepe, I really like your book, I think it's awesome, real RPG encyclopedia! I especially like the part called "Games we'll never get to play" but so far there are only 4 titles in there which isn't much...

    Some time ago I made a thread called "Greatest RPG that never got released?"

    http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/greatest-rpg-that-never-got-released.101459/

    ...and there was some interesting stuff in there so you can check it and see if one of the RPGs in there can go into your book. Just a suggestion.
