Well... it lived a short life... nice knowing you Puzzle and Dragons!
They make Ragnarok Online... I am so worried for what is going to happen to all of their online games now.
And now Softbank is just throwing away Puzzle and Dragons... idiots.
What do you mean, "What is going to happen to it?" This is the end of this as we know it.
Wow they really did Gungho dirty... poor employees!
Wow... just wow... I mean... I can imagine that those games and stocks are now going to crash hard.
I can only expect to see loading errors now when I play this... I wonder what is going to happent to the anime now too. I hope it doesn't get a 'Censorship update'.
