You know, I was going to do an analogy about how taking charge of a new Mana game, with unrealistic expectations borne of age-old devotion poorly reflected in recent efforts, is a bit like taking charge of Newcastle United football club. But then I thought: if my 12-year-old self could see me now, talking about football at a time like this, my 12-year-old self would probably jump up and down on my head. Or strangle me with a multitap lead. My 12-year-old self was pretty tough, you know. He could totally have me.
