Dragon’s Crown Reveals The Nimble Elf

By Spencer . April 26, 2013 . 1:52am

Armed with arrows and a dagger, the Elf is ready to fight… Medusa? A screenshot shows her engaged in a battle with a Gorgon of some kind. The Elf is a hunter who has an attack that makes arrows rain on enemies and apparently the ability to stand in the air while aiming her bow.


Dragon’s Crown comes out on July 25 in Japan. A few days later on August 6, Atlus will release Dragon’s Crown for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in North America.

  • CirnoLakes

    Yay, finally something about my favourite class.

  • Go2hell66

    She can also do magic? no reason to use the sorceress anymore

    • I can think of two reasons…can’t believe I just said that..

      • Christopher Hughes

        Yeah, minion classes are great and she probably has more mana.

        Were those not the reasons?

        • Colonel Custard

          I always thought it was the fashionable hat and awesome power walking stick were the reasons.

        • I was just say maybe she can exploit weaknesses using different types of magic such as ice,i don’t think I saw the elf using ice in here.Aswell as maybe others just would prefer playing a witch character?

      • Go2hell66

        Two reasons?

        what could they posssibly be?


        • Its just so big! ;) (the hat) and Look at the size of her staff!(hmmm staff size must be bigger than 12 inches *drools*

          • Solomon_Kano

            12 inch staff? It’s a trap!

    • TheExile285

      I think her magic use will be very limited

    • Pockystix

      if she had a sword instead of a bow or dagger, I would pick her o 3o

    • Testsubject909

      Your loss. I’ma go with the Sorceress first and figure out which of the Amazon or the Elf to go with afterwards.

  • Chris Yuen

    Main character. 1st day. Still don’t like how Kotaku’s Jason Schreier can’t get over his ego and issue a proper and sincere apology to Vanillaware’s George Kamitani for calling his designs as though they were made by a “cheap 14-year-old”. According to Jason S on Neogaf (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=55356520&postcount=1633) , if you like the Sorceress’ face, you are a lolicon.

    • HassanJamal

      That article was ridiculous, as per usual Kotaku reads :L

      Anyways, same here, going to main as elf cause for me, its really close to the character designs of Odin Sphere.

    • z_merquise

      And George Kamitani of Vanillaware responded with this:


      Seriously, he’s making a big deal as if it was the first time Vanillaware did it and they’re the only one in the freakin’ world who do such thing.

      And yet he disregard the Elf who seems the be the female character he preferred. Or disregard other main protagonists of past Vanillaware games who are all female from Gwendolyn to Lillet Blan to the lesser-known Gradiel of Princess Crown and even Momohime. All of them like what he posted at NeoGAF: ” Strong, complicated female characters who aren’t defined by their sexuality”.

      It’s like he just cherry-pick and then rant on what he hated whereas it isn’t the whole representation of the product then make a big deal out of it.

      • I dunno, not to defend Jason Schreier but I think Kamitani responding with a gay joke was equally immature tbh

        • sandra10

          If it was a gay joke. But I have hard time seeing it as one, especially since I doubt many gay men find hairy, balding, muscled men with long beards attractive.

          • whatever

            Because his response was along the lines of ‘what you don’t like sexy busty girls? You gay son? here have some homo dwarves then’ . He could have handled it in a more mature way.

          • Brimfyre

            Do you know how long it probably took Kamitani to draw those oiled up muscle bound men? It wasn’t like some quick sketch.

            And he draws all men in DC like that. You think someone wanting to make a quick gay joke would go through that much trouble. He was showing that he draws both sexes in an extreme fashion.

            Yes, there was a subtle gay joke there, but he was also trying to make light of the situation.

          • you obviously know nothing about the gay community…unless this was a joke. if so, then you know much about about the gay community. good job.

          • Nightmesh

            I was thinking the same thing when I read that.

          • Neophoton

            Welcome to the bara genre.

          • SirTeffy

            It really wasn’t, from a gay point of view. At least, it wasn’t an OFFENSIVE gay joke. It was basically “So you don’t like my sorceress, maybe you prefer my dwarf?” As in, “So you don’t prefer my hyperfeminine character, maybe you prefer my hypermasculine one instead?”

        • Chris Yuen

          Kamitani’s reply was more tongue-in-cheek than anything. People are just over-reacting. Maybe Kamitani should have just gone Kamiya style and tell Jason and the Kotaku crew to “eat shit”. In the Asian culture, you just don’t get away with calling a much respected figure in the industry a “14 year old” and get away with it. Seeing Kamitani’s reply, Jason couldn’t take the burn/joke and proceed to over-blown it again for more page views and clicks, just like what Kotaku writers are expected to do. “Nevermind that my editor Stephen Totilo and I didn’t issue an apology/clarification about calling Kamitani a cheap 14 year old. We will just portray ourselves as the victims this time and get our fellow friends from the gaming reporting industry e.g Christian Nutt from Gamasutra to join us in defending our opinion. We called him a 14 year old and now he called us gay. He said something controversial. Great. Sound the alarm! Start the witchhunt! We got something new to write about for more page views!”

        • z_merquise

          Compared to all of the crap Kotaku is doing for years now, this is nothing. And I think Kamitani is just having fun.

          Hideki Kamiya’s trash talk to Kotaku though, now that’s too harsh yet they deserve it.

          • Brimfyre

            Oh man I don’t know how I missed Kamiya’s reply. That is golden.

          • PoweredByHentai

            I just saw Kamiya’s reaction to Kotaku. XD

            Really disliked Luke and Owen. Those two tend to rub me the wrong way the most often.

        • Ladius

          His answer wasn’t a gay joke, rather it was interpreted as such by people that were already up in arms against him.

          If Kamitani had never made that kind of male artworks before his answer could have been read that way, but considering he has done plenty of disproportionately well built male characters (two of them are playable in Dragon’s Crown alone, and two more are npcs in the trailer) I think it was a playful reminder that his excessive, grotesque style concerned both male and female characters, and that decontextualizing the Sorceress wasn’t a well thought critique but a mere sensationalistic, simplistic exploitation.

          I have appreciated Schreier’s work in the past (I even defended him here on Siliconera), but this time the way he offended Kamitani and attacked his art style without even trying to understand its peculiarities or the references integrated in Dragon’s Crown’s archetypes (this is an interesting piece about that topic: http://art-eater.com/2013/03/from-mickey-mouse-to-jesus-the-latest-dragons-crown-trailer-is-full-of-epic-homages/) left me both shocked and sad.

          • Jason was much more reputable and balanced before he moved over to that site. I wonder what happened…

        • sakusakusakura_nyo

          I figure Kamitani’s response made sense because the dwarf dude is like the opposite of the sorceress. Some people are just reading into it way too much.

      • Zhizn Snake

        It really bothers me how supporters of the Kotaku article immediately assumed George Kamitani’s reply to be driven by homophobia and as a “counter-insult”. The way I see it, he just made a light joke about the situation and also himself. He asked “would you prefer this?”, but he never made any indication that he meant “you’re gay, right?” or that he even looks down on gays in any way, but of course unsurprisingly most people would come to the most negative conclusion. He could have just as easily meant “see, I draw these kind of characters too, so is my work ok now?” lol. Maybe it would have been ideal for him to directly counter with a more constructive response, but I think he wasn’t even gonna respond to begin with. It appears to me that he was just posting his new art and thought of the kotaku article and decided to make a little joke on a whim while he shared his art.

        I am seriously never clicking on a Kotaku link ever again after that tirade. It was purely “journalistic” sensationalism driven by ignorance and BLATANT hypocrisy. And it’s not the first time a Kotaku article has made me want to facepalm that hard either. This is why I prefer to watch BBC World News over other news as well, I prefer my news to try to be as non-partial as possible. Just the facts, please.

        If they really wanted to challenge and direct focus towards female representation in games the right way, then they should have asked their readers about their thoughts on the matter in a more balanced and fair debate where both sides of the fence have a defense (and not single out Dragon’s Crown like that!). Hell, they could have even put some more research and thought into what they said at least. All of the best arguments I’ve read about female representation in comic books (for example), and which were mostly coming from female fans, have been “We’re fine with sexy women, because yes women can be sexy too, but the problem is that sexy and the hourglass figure is not the only kind of women (or even the only kind of attractive female) out there. So what we want is more variety!”. And George Kamitani provides exactly that. All three females in this game have different body types and are attractive in their own diverse ways, and that’s just this game when his entire work contains even more diversity.

        And they didn’t even wait for the game to release first to play it and see if Sorceress even does simply rely on her sexuality as a character. We don’t know how deep the stories for any of these characters go yet. But she can fight and cast spells, and she seems pretty smart already, so that’s enough in my book to see her as a humanly, respectable character and more than a “sex object”.

        (sorry for the wall of text, but c’mon, this is kind of the first time I’ve shared my thoughts on this kotaku article after days of thought on it, lol)

      • ShadowDivz

        Design to appeal to a lolicon fantasy?
        Either he’s a lolicon in denial or knows nothing about lolis in general.

        Because, anyone who knows even a little bit about japanese culture.
        Knows lolis are flat as boards.

        • I agree. How could anyone mistake her for a loli. A young face? He forgets that japanese women look young to begin with.

          • ShadowDivz

            That too. He’s just another moral fag on some weird self-righteous conquest for decency in an ever decaying world.
            I don’t hear scientists complaining about how impossible magic is.

        • Uhh actually there’s a subset of lolita’s called oppai lolitas.
          Which you can only tell they are lolta’s based on the design of their face.

    • asch999

      An amateur trying to dictate what professional designer do.
      If you don’t like it then don’t buy it, simple as that

    • Sekai-jin

      Oh my God, I freakin hate Kotaku, and considered many time to stop visiting that feminist site many time because of their over-sensitivity, over-analysis crap.

      Only if Kotaku is among the fastest spreading games news around and their interesting Japanese culture article, I will never visit that site again. ….Yeah, I did lose, but don’t expect me to read and reply kindly to the author self claiming “sexist issue” article.

      Before that Patricia, now Jason. I guess that what you get when your site hosted by Gawker, which the motto is ” the definitive news and GOSSIP sheet for followers of entertainment, media, and business”. See that word, gossip..

      Also, this nimble elf is a proof that Kamitani is not sex maniac or something like that, there is balance in his art expression, you got weird proportioned woman, you also got more normal looking woman. Man in his art is the same.

      Balance, like the real world does.


      Look how big his shoulder, and how small his hip.

      I like George Kamitani way to draw a unique, different than others art. If you hate it, play other game.

      • PoweredByHentai

        I stopped going to (and contributing to) Kotaku just before they rolled out their Kinja BS comment system.

        They were doing a lot of click-bait articles and basically didn’t bother to moderate their community, so there was a lot of vitriolic BS that ended up there as a result.

    • Armane

      I think Tycho summed it up best (shame the related comic had to put a dick joke in there):

      “It’s very weird to pull up a story about a game with frankly visionary
      art and hear why it shouldn’t exist, or to hear what I supposedly
      fantasize about, or what kind of power I supposedly revere, and any
      attempt to defend oneself from these psychotic projections or to assert
      that creators may create is evidence of a dark seed sprouting in the
      heart. It’s an incredible state of affairs. They’re not censors,
      though – oh, no no.”

    • KuchikiSentou

      What I like is how these people who are trying to ride some fight against objectivism [whatever], completely ignore the other female charaters and their appearance and simply go for who is [probably] “sexiest”.

      All these complaints about anatomy are unwarranted and self-infused. The writer obviously feels guilty that the image of the Sorceress stirs something within him so he lashes out about lolicon etc… Us anime watchers, manga readers and generally, objective, reasonable people find nothing spectacular in his reason for complaint.

      They all need to grow up to my mind. “Sexy” men and women are everywhere.

  • Adam Zaorski

    Must haveeeeee!

  • Adol Christin

    My fav character :)

  • AkuLord3

    Before much was shown i knew i was going use the Archer since i taken a liken in using Mercedes from Odin Sphere…AND now seeing her in action i wanna use her soo much more :D. Oh yeah Elf and Dwarf, now to see two more characters~

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Jeez, was not expecting the various kicks and flips (and magic?!) as a part of her move set. Gameplay wise, I think I’m taking a strong liking towards her.

    Versatility is her name, and putting arrows in your face is her game!

  • Nirun Rangraengjit

    Oh she looks FUN >:D

  • Still deciding if to main the warrior or elf. Both of them look like the kind of characters I play in side scrolling games. Decisions decisions…

  • TheExile285

    The Ragnarok Odyssey devs should take some lessons from Vanilla because this is how you make a cool bow character,

    This game will be glorious!

    • SirTeffy

      Hunter’s getting a serious revamp in Ace, I hear, for starters they’re instituting their typical traps into their moveset (or maybe as the new skils?)

  • Natat

    Finally the video of my main!

  • iamakii

    I’ll choose Grand Knights History, any time, any day, over this.

    • ddh819

      that’s not really the same type of game, though right?

      • Solomon_Kano

        Not at all.

  • Göran Isacson

    And now for something completely different from the other two ladies- clothes :D !

    On a more gamerelated note though, I’m torn on theelf is who I’d go with. I always prefer the heavy brawlers in fighting games like these, but the distance attacks are mighty tempting. She looks like she can handle large crowds well and that’s always a useful trait to have in multiplayer sessions…

    And on a controversy-related note… Ha ha oh man. This discussion… interesting stuff going on here, plenty of strange and awkward behaviour on both sides.

    I’ve always been kind of boggled at just how BLATANT the designs of the mains in this game are. Sorceress, Amazon, Dwarf and Knight really look like someone took Rob Liefields style and tried to see what would come if you put some actual effort into it. They still look like weirdly misshapen blobs of humanity, but misshapen blobs of humanity that have some effort put into them. I won’t lie, I don’t think they’re appealing at all (Elf or Wizard for me), but I can find some humor in them. It feels like this is the game that George Kamitani decided to just let go of all limits and populate a whole game with the designs he previously reserved for a select few enemies or characters in other games.

    He’s in full-tilt “I DO WHAT I WANT”-mode, hopefully fully aware that it’s going to limit the appeal to some people and I can dig that kinda honesty. I feel a bit awkward, as one tends to do when someone essentially holds up their notebook of porn and say “this is my spankmaterial”, but I suppose I can laugh along with him and go “not my taste, but good for you”.

    What raises my eyebrows is the fact that Dragon’s Crown has gotten the attention that it has. It seems like the general audience completely passed up Muramasa, Odin Sphere and Grim Grimoire, but now that George lets loose people are suddenly paying attention. And the more attention that game gets the more attention people pay in the general press, and Dragon’s Crown is most likely the most “easy access” title Vannilaware have made in a long time.
    Little in terms of storyline and character, obvious gameplay (wander around in caves and beat up monsters for loot), very ‘simple’ costumes… there’s very little ‘artsy’ or high-brow about it compared to the previous games Vanillaware’s put out. Could that be a potential reason for the controversy? Could it be that this may be the game that puts Vanillaware in the “mainstream” eye and people are salty that THIS is what they will be remembered for, and so they are extra critical/extra ready to defend and hype the game, even if it may not be any better or worse or more special than what’s come before?

    Or is it just the fact that Bioshock Infinite just happened and now everyone wants to talk big games and big stories and big themes and then out of nowhere comes the Sorceress with THE most ridiculous breasts in videogames and the whiplash is too much to handle?

    • PoweredByHentai
      • Göran Isacson

        I did actually. Still don’t think it changes anything in what I said. Those homages were indeed nice and probably well-thought out, but most of the characters still look like misshapen mutants.

        • PoweredByHentai

          I guess that means Picasso’s various artworks are a nightmare straight from hell and Munch’s The Scream is an irradiated mutant to you.

          • Göran Isacson

            My god. You are really doing this, are you?

            There is a mileswide difference between what Picasso and Munch did, and what George Kamitani is doing. His main characters (I emphasize that point because those are the designs I’m talking about and those are the main talking points and the things people will be looking at and which the game will mostly be sold on, NOT the backgrounds or the stage designs or the NPCS because the trailers aren’t pushing those ahead of the MAIN CHARACTERS) are deliberately overdone grotesqueries.

            Even if the side characters have more thought put into them, the main characters are straight up just meant to be Boris Vallejo and Rob Liefield driven far beyond any reason. I acknolwedge this. I even accept this and just kind of laugh along with the great cosmic joke that they are. To get salty over me going “lol those boobs and manboobs are ridiculous” when those boobs and manboobs are, objectively, onehundred percent, MEANT to be ridiculous is just taking your defense way too far.

          • PoweredByHentai

            You know, I’m not even sure what the hell you are trying to defend here.

            You admitted that Kamitani’s homages are uniquely in his style, then you proceed to lambaste his art as misshapen mutants.

            Do you realize how much of a hypocrite you sound right now? What people consider as “art” is entirely subjective and instead of celebrating that expressive individuality, you criticize it because it doesn’t fit your arbitrary standards of “beauty” and mock it as “misshapen mutants.”

          • Göran Isacson

            You keep on using that word. I do not think it means what you say it means. Of course I lambast it- It is not to my tastes. Why should I celebrate something I find unappealing? Tolerance is not the same thing as acceptance- I say right in the first comment that these designs aren’t to my tastes, but if it’s what he wants to do then it’s what he wants to do, and he’s probably aware of how this will limit the games appeal to some people and whether I like it or not is most likely no skin off his back.

            You want to argue that there is effort put into stuff like the background designs and the little artsy shout outs, and I never disputed that. Not once! I don’t know what you are so upset about here- I simply expressed that these character designs are unappealing because they are deliberately exaggarating anatomy to the point where it just becomes ridiculous, and you think this somehow makes me a hypocrite. Why on earth would you do that? What are you trying to defend?

  • Romangelo

    I love these arts. they need to bring more games like this to North America, especially for consoles. Muramasa on PS3 must be awesome.

  • Ni

    So is Asami Imai the Elf VA?
    man, I love the comments on the video they’re just hilarious HAHAHA
    Edit: Get to the Amazon already! Goddammit!

    • z_merquise

      So is Asami Imai the Elf VA?


  • z_merquise

    It’s really cool to see that Elf doesn’t solely rely on just bow and arrow for her attacks. She got some martial-arts and some magic spells but seems like her spells aren’t as powerful or not meant for crowd-control like the Sorceress’ spells were (as what we’ve seen so far).

    Also nice to hear Imai Asami in the trailer. I wonder if there’ll be an English dub in this game.

    • MrRobbyM

      Yeah, it’s really hard to guess since Odin Sphere had English voices, really good ones at that, but Muramasa didn’t. I’d guess yes since Muramasa was a very Japanese game and probably wanted it to feel more authentic.

      Either way would be fine but I’d hope for an English dub just because they did such a wonderful job on Odin Sphere.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Muramasa wasn’t published by Atlus though, so that doesn’t tell us anything. If we’re looking at any Vanillaware game with a US release, then 2/3 were dubbed but, again, that doesn’t tell us anything here. If Atlus follows their work on Odin Sphere though, it’ll be dubbed.

        • Testsubject909

          That’ll be nice. English voices would fit this better than Japanese voices just because of the setting and the Western mythology/fantasy it’s based on.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Supposing there’s as much on the way of dialog here as there is in Odin Sphere, yea, that’d be good. I could go for either or, so long as nobody ends up with an annoying voice.

  • Manny Being Manny

    Oh cool, theres a moe girl too. I was worried it was nothing but big stacked amazon women.

  • Taylor Davis

    she’s going to be the first character I”m going to play as. Day one, I can’t wait!

  • so many people offended by the “gay joke”! i will say, i am gay and not at all offended by Mr Kamitani. Maybe its because i am an artist, but im pretty sure that his goal was to remind Kotaku’s Jason Schreier that he uses a very stylized art form, in which the women are busty and voluptuous and the men are packing nearly the same bust size as well as muscles for days. It is undeniable that he is objectifying women to some degree, but he is just as well objectifying men. there is no difference in the two, except that one(male objectification) is not done nearly as often as the other. However, even if he were only objectifying women, that would be his prerogative and the game developers would have let him know if it were a problem.

    Also the elf looks amazing!

    • Luna Kazemaru

      its better not to think about kotaku’s shit posting and just enjoy what you like

      • Testsubject909

        Oh, so it was Kotaku that posted it?

        Huh. I have even more reasons to just never touch the article.

        It’s an obvious trap for more hits via easy to use and manipulate controversy for the sake of controversy with no real proper substance that would actively help or aid any proper gender equalizing agenda.

        To those who want to help both genders reach equality politically… Honestly. Kotaku’s article is not the place to see that happen.

        • SirTeffy

          Especially since it’s been clarified multiple times that it was an inoffensive joke that got blown WAY out of proportion, *AND* that Kotaku failed to contact anyone involved before airing the “controversy” and proceeded to blow it out of proportion, causing it to reflect badly both on Vanillaware and Atlus.

          • Testsubject909

            I personally prefer to think that it reflects badly on Kotaku.

    • SirTeffy

      I firmly agree – I didn’t take it as homophobic at all; more a jesting “Well, if you don’t like busty females, maybe you like muscly men?” The wording was hardly in any sort of “If you don’t like titties you must be gay”, more of a joking “If you didn’t like my females maybe you’ll like my men.”

      In addition, Kamitani clarified that it was in no way intended to be taken in that way, and even sent a “no hard feelings” email to Jason, so I don’t see why this is still an issue.

    • Hell yes. I’m a gay guy too and I never found it homophobic. It’s irks
      me whenever straight men cry homophobia and never bother to ask us
      actual gay guys on what we think.

      • YES. there needs some some kind of Q&A service for that!

        • ShadowDivz

          It’s kinda funny how it’s usually heterosexuals who go all “OMG HOMOPHOBE THAT JOKE IS OFFENSIVE!”

          And gay guys are just like “Nah, not really it’s cool.”

    • PoweredByHentai

      My impression of Kotaku’s Jason Schreier is that he’s an idiot. It simply sounded like he had never heard of Odin Sphere nor Muramasa nor Grim Grimoire nor even Princess Crown.

      I read Kamitani’s drawing of the three burly dwarven men as a question from Kamitani to Jason about whether Jason wanted him to draw more burly men. Having played the aforementioned games, burly dwarven men in Kamitani’s style are pretty damn awesome.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Best Archer ever.Only thing missing is Unlimited BLade WorksXD
    I decided I will be an Elf

  • I must have not been paying attention before but I had no idea the Elf had melee attacks. Which was stupid in my part for expecting her to solely rely on the bow. I’ll be playing as the Amazon/Elf. Both of their fighting styles are more suited to the way I play beat em ups.

  • KuchikiSentou

    Each new piece of news excites me but subtly reminds me that there is STILL no news of an European release date.

  • Solomon_Kano

    I was dead-set on being Flowy-robes Man the Wizard, but the Elf’s given him some competition now. Hm. I’ll have to wait for his trailer to make my final decision…

  • Raoni Marques

    Dem kicks!
    The Elf is looking awesome. I might main her too!

    • Testsubject909

      She’s got very lovely legs.

  • Alex Cattaneo

    Must have! both vita and ps3

  • That was badass. I’ll probably be choosing the Elf first, Sorceress second.

  • Prinny Dood

    Shes definity my first choice , first play through, first trophie and im using her when play multiplayer. But im changing her name to zelda

    I already have my pre-order for both the PS3 and Vita versions so to me this is just a waiting game right now.

    That said…. I see I’m now going to be playing as all the female characters. The Amazon for that heavy offensive close and personal style glass cannon style. The Sorceress for the magical supportive style and the Elf for the mixture close and long range rapid style.

    Wonderful… Not sure how hard it’ll be to maintain three characters at proper level for solo and team play.

    Do you guys really think what 1 person’s opinion matters? Jason is a nobody that writes anything about anything. Negative news sells that’s all. VW does what they want. their design stand out of the crowd. You know what happens when you drive the opposite side of the road? People don’t like you and you get noticed.

      It matters if you keep on putting attention on the guy.

      Ignore it or only touch the subject on the wide range level such as the core issue itself as opposed to a specific person who tries to talk about it up on his soapbox if you have a personal desire to make a statement on the issue itself.

    She will be my main character for sure. Day 1. She has some awesome moves. Cant wait to play as her. The elf is my favorite character. I really like her character design. She looks amazing. I like how she can attack with her bow and arrow from above. She has a nice set of skills.

    Just wanted to jump in here and say that I quit visiting Kotaku and opted to come here about my games instead. I had an account at Kotaku at one point, and after being treated in a disgusting manner while trying to post a thoughtful response to an article, I deleted it. Kotaku’s writers have a schizophrenic approach to everything they cover and their articles lack any sort of professionalism. To top it off, most of their readership are rude, demeaning, racist,or just downright hateful.I found myself just getting angry at what was being written, rather than being able to pay any attention to what the actual subject matter was. You could not pay me to go back to Kotaku.
