From the pan into the fire, I guess. Give it a few days, and users will probably have to supply Reddit with a phone number, ID, a deposit, and nude pictures of themselves in order to post.

If nothing else, them preemptively stating this will only apply to selected countries probably means EU privacy watchdogs would have a field day over this.

Big Dental in shambles! /jk

Takahashi hopes the new medicine could be just another option for those who don’t have a full set of teeth.

The experimental use for children suffering from a lack of teeth due to genetic disorders is interesting, to be sure. But getting those newly growing teeth to play nice with any pre-existing teeth in the jaws of regular kids (let alone adults) seems like a problem an issue.

As a second potential issue: Would such a drug only induce the growth of new teeth in otherwise empty sockets, or might it have side effect (i.e. inducing further growth) of other teeth already present?

These kind of make her look like a younger sister to Patchouli. Which is kind of ironic, given Patchouli herself only wears glasses in fanworks.

I certainly didn't see that coming. As the article itself points out, Kamiya co-founded platinum - it's not like he was stuck in a position like, say, Kojima before the latter left (and/or was bullied out of) Konami.

It'll be interesting to see where he ends up. At least with his online personality, it's difficult to imagine he might run with a classical development studio or publisher that's chiefly run by suit monkeys.
