After nearly three years of downtime, the Legend of Suikoden
is finally back online. I apologize for the long downtime, but
during that time, I have been extremely busy with university
work, as well as not being able to find any webspace for the
Legend of Suikoden. However, these days, I have had some time to
setup some webspace for the Legend of Suikoden. The new URL is http://home.comcast.net/~ckturbo128/Website/Legend_of_Suikoden/.
I know it is quite long, but this will have to do for the time
being. Here are the poll results of the last question before the
Question #10: "Since
Konami is not planning on translating the Genso Suikogaiden
volumes into English, will you be importing them from Japan?"
Suikoden III is better than its predecessors! - 33% (28 Votes)
2.) Great! Suikoden III is on par
with its predecessors! I already have one of the
Genso Suikogaiden volumes - 35% (30 Votes)
Suikoden III could have been better. - 14% (12 Votes)
4.) Bad. I do not like
Suikoden III. - 4% (3 Votes)
5.) I have not
yet purchased the game. - 14% (12 Votes)
Total Votes: 85 Votes
I set up a new poll question regarding Suikoden
IV. More updates will occur later on.

There have been many little changes to the website, mostly
minor visual updates in the navigation bar. I have created a new
logo for the Legend of Suikoden, since I felt the previous logo was
looking a little bit bland. Another reason for replacing the
logo was that someone was ripping off the Legend of Suikoden
logo and using it for their website (whom I had asked to remove
the logo, but refused to comply), which can be seen here: David's Legend of Suikoden. The Links page has been updated, since many of the sites listed there no
longer exist or are dead links. I have also added the Suikoden IV and Rhapsodia pages. The Art
Gallery section are currently available. For those who are
unfamiliar with Rhapsodia, it
is the upcoming strategy RPG game set during the timeline of Suikoden IV.
Also, the Legend of Suikoden now is affiliated with the Dominating Twins:
Quality Ragnarok Online Guild, which is a online RPG guild
who is active on the Quality Ragnarok Online servers, a popular, private Ragnarok
Online server. The Message Board is no longer the main forum for just the Legend of Suikoden, as it is also used by members of the Dominating Twins:
Quality Ragnarok Online Guild, so the message board has been
appropriately re-named to Yoon's Corner.
At the moment, I am looking for extra moderators for the message board.
If you are interested, please send me a private message in the
forums or e-mail.

Suikoden Tactics Preview
IGN PS2 has recently
posted its initial preview of the English version of Suikoden Tactics (formerly Rhapsodia):
"As one of
several announcements made at its annual Media BBQ today,
Konami revealed that its Suikoden-based strategy/RPG
Rhapsodia would be coming to domestic shores this November.
To be known more formally as Suikoden Tactics when it arrives here in America,
the English version of Rhapsodia is nearing competition and
is already in its final production stages. Luckily for us,
Konami is well aware that IGN readers are longtime fans of
the series and have given yours truly a cool hands-on sneak
peek so that I could see firsthand what the game was all

There have been many changes to the website
layout. First, most website picture files have been reduced
in file size, so the website should load slightly faster.
The Home page will now display
the upcoming release dates, as well as game and website
updates. The former website greeting has been moved to a
separate About page. The former Rhapsodia section has been
re-named to Suikoden Tactics, as Konami has announced its
intentions to release the game in North America and Europe.
The Links section has been removed, since most of the links
were dead anyway. The Products page has been changed into
the Soundtracks page.

Vol. 2, Genso Suikoden - Card Stories, and Suikoden Tactics home
pages to display their release dates.
