Adam talks about how he's seem some adjustments in games coming out of Japan, and how he thinks they're finally taking notes on what their Western counterparts have been up to, and are folding those ideas into their game development. Will it make for better games? Or will we lose the originality that Japanese titles have had for so many years?
