So, I was looking to see what new RPGs have come out or will be coming out recently as I haven't kept up and ran across this game - Touhou Genso Wanderer - and decided to look deeper into it. Plot wasn't very interesting but I continued looking to see if at least the graphics were pleasing and then I saw the screenshots. Possibly the most stupid choice for a font setup I have ever seen in my entire time playing video games. This game has white text with a thin black outline. Sounds great right, except it is over a WHITE background.

This isn't the first time that NIS America has been this stupid either. Ever tried playing Ar Tonelico Qoga on an old Standard Definition TV, of course you haven't, since it is pretty much impossible to do. And the worst part is they don't even care. They had many many complaints on Ar Tonelico Qoga and never even cared enough to release a patch to fix it. Anyway, my point is... Actually, I don't really have a point, except that I wish commercial companies cared enough about games not to do this to us. And maybe this is the reason why I tend to be so obsessive about nice looking and reading fonts.

Dreadful... it screams 'did they even test this game at all before releasing?!'
