I agree that it better be pretty dang awesome or we riot, and you are right they aren't the best when it comes to fan treatment, but the creators of the games aren't the problem there so much as the rest of the business. They get to make what they are given the money for and that's not always what they want and what we as fans want. I'm just personally not in the habit of ragging on a game that hasn't come out yet. Yes the side stories weren't the best thing but I come back to it was something. There are fans of different games out there that don't be in-betweens like we did. I'm at least thankful for something. Not like Persona where you have to wait forever and get nothing but remakes in the mean time.
BSS wasn't that bad of a game. Personally i enjoyed it and 3D wasn't too bad either to call them poor is a little harsh. Yeah the first few needed work, but all in all i come back to at least it was something.
And honestly waiting 10 years for this, i think will just make it sweeter. It might not be the ending i want to this saga but at least they haven't forgotten us. over the last 10 years they've at least given us somethings, not the best of things true, but something.
