Thanks for the interview! Yeah, most of these other topics are pretty old. The activity level of this board went down quite a bit once this fell out of the gamefaqs top 10. (People are too lazy to search the board out manually, myself included ^^).
I think it is partly the launch of the PS4, and the other holiday games like Zelda have been released. I know I hopped off here to play A Link Between Worlds. But this board will be rocking in the spring as we get closer to the Ground Zeroes release.
