nexon is a, excuse this b*tch cause they can't really do anything without the approval over the bigger company in asia, and by the time it takes them to get an approval, it takes even more time to carry it out.

seriously? Nexon isn't bad at all, all you guys are acting like they mess up games all the time.
If someone gave me any evidence of Nexon being bad that'd be great.

hmmm the ghost in the shell series is famous for its characters and the coplex philosophical dialogs which include topics like the origin of human mind, the Cartesian dualism and things like Simulacrum ( especially in the stand alone coplex ). I think, the best way to make a game out of it, is to make an adventure.

Even tho this is nexon making the game....sigh.....im still quite interested to see how these games turn out.

why....why.....why....I was shocked at first when I read "Ghost in the Shell Games to be Developed " and then I saw IT! Why does nexon have to mess everything up? I absolutely hate that company...such greedy bastards!! I guess I can either hope something goes wrong and they fail to launch the games indefinitely or no one plays it due to ?????? and it is sold to someone else to run things... The best and insane idea being Nexon actually does things right and doesn't turn it into a cash hog...

Well it could have been worse. Though, not much. They could have given the license to Aeria Games.
