Screw you, Square, for making an interesting-looking RPG for iPod that I am incapable of running on either of the iPods I own, or on my iPhone. And screw Apple for creating such a fragmented platform to begin with.
It’s a shame, too. Song Summoner looks like a Barcode Battler kinda thing mixed with Final Fantasy Tactics, capable of translating MP3s into character data. I imagine that song length is a salient factor in this process, so I’m bummed that I won’t be able to annihilate the forces of evil with indestructible giants made from Tales from Topographic Oceans and A Passion Play.
Speaking of Square, I’m on tap to go to Japan next month and cover their public event. Any Tokyo types care to partake of the privilege of buying me dinner while I’m over there? I plan to stick around for an extra day or two trying to drum up interviews and such, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to fete me.
