Update: For the first time in E-Mails That Never Received a Reply's five year and four post history, this e-mail has received a reply. Over a week after having sent the e-mail. Check below the original e-mail for FUN.

Dear Taito Corporation,

Throughout the years, I have been a fan of your series of Bubble Bobble games. The adventures of Bub and Bob are, in my humble opinion, among the greatest stories of the 20th century, rivaling the Bildungsromanesque overtones of Mann's "Magic Mountain" and Tarkovski's paean to mysticism, "Nostalghia". However, why did you guys ever bother to create games based on Bub and Bob's human adventures? Parasol Stars is pedantic and meandering and Rainbow Islands is simply straight up fucking stupid. Please don't remake these games. If you already have and I just didn't know about it, then dang. That ain't cool.

Write back please.

Taito's Reply:

Dear Mr. Sak

Though we are not able to reveal our future game development map, your precious comment is forwarded to our product planning department in order to reflect to product planning,

with kindest regards

E-Mails That Never Received A Reply #3: To Acclaim

Thu, 07/29/2004 — Sak

The following e-mail was sent to Acclaim a little over a week ago. My leitmotive was to inquire into the motives of the development of one of their latter-day NES games. I never received a response.

Hey Acclaim,

Seriously guys. Total Recall: the game? What the fuck?


E-Mails That Never Received a Reply #2: The DeBono-Square-Enix Connection

Sun, 07/18/2004 — Sak

The following e-mail was sent to Square-Enix of America aproximately a week ago; I wanted to enlighten them to the fact that they had the resources and perogative to develop and release upon the unsuspecting huddled masses an Edward DeBono electronic console game! They never responded.

Dear Square-Enix,

Hello, I've been an avid gamer and Squaresoft enthusiast for years upon years (I have to admit, however, that Enix's games have never truly appealed to me in the past -- this is one of my more idiosyncratic traits I wish to overcome in the near future). I consider the U.S. releases of Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy VI as, respectively, Final Fantasy II and Final Fantasy III, hallmarks of my childhood years.

I write not to you now to extol the triumphs of past glories (however much you may deserve them!), but to make a request. For at least as many years as I have been a fan of Square, I have been a fan of one Mr. Edward De Bono. His website (http://www.edwdebono.com) is filled with ideas that are truly worthy of note! His ability to conceive and execute new modes of thought has earned him the moniker of "NMT" (or, "New Millenium Thinker").
