Todd is lying about ES6 again but what is your favorite Elder Scrolls game? Mine is Oblivion. Now I know what yo be sayun, and I know all about its shortcomings but to me it's also the comfiest in the series with the art direction and the atmosphere it's going for. Also it's pre-NuBethesda so it's still more related to the previous games rather than trying to streamline and simplify everything to appeal to normalcattle.

The origins of localizations Anonymous 05/19/2023 (Fri) 15:28:27 No.3043 [Reply] [Last]
Is it possible that one fucking faggot from California and his company is responsible for this hideous practice of disrespecting the source material? Victor Ireland co-founded Wrecking Designs in 1990, during a time when most English vidya translations were sub-par machine translations mixed with some poor salary man trying his best with what little English knowledge he gained in Japanese high school. They took the western gaming scene by storm with their translations that actually read like proper English. Little did vidya enthusiasts know back then, that this egomaniac faggot didn't just translate the Japanese games he brought over, he actually made them into his own. So imagine this, you want to translate Japanese video games but the translators you hired aren't good enough so what do you do? Just make shit up and insert a bunch of shitty jokes everywhere and call it From former Wrecking Designs translator Tim Trzepacz: >The thing to remember is that Working Designs had really terrible translators until I came along. They were hiring some company out of San Francisco and the translators there didn’t really know English. They could translate the Japanese, but they didn’t really understand what the idiom was they were translating to. And everything was coming out of a spreadsheet so it wasn’t even in context. Japanese is a very context-sensitive language. So to a certain degree [Working Designs co-founder Victor Ireland] had no choice but to make things up as he went, because he had very little to go on. When I came in, I brought in two well-known fan-translators, C. Sue Shambaugh and Richard Kim, who ratcheted up the quality of the translations tremendously. Now things made sense! But by then Victor kinda already had his process down, he liked rewriting it and adding the comedy in. https://archive.md/TPVZX To quote the faggot himself: >Oh this script is really boring, let me put some funny stuff in here. So I would insert funny lines that really had nothing to do with what was going on. And that sort of evolved. I continued doing that, did more of it, and people generally liked it [because] they were seeing writing that they never saw in Japanese-localized or translated games, like ‘Holy crap, this is amazing’. Source https://archive.md/K5cvw Here's one of the most famous examples of localization from Lunar 2 on the Sega CD: >Girlie, if I were in the position to throw away cash on bums, you'd call me Clinton and I'd be president. I can't find the Japanese line online and I don't feel like searching through the Japanese script, but I assure you it's probably not a shitty Clinton joke. If you want more examples of "localization" just check out these articles: https://archive.md/o/238P9/https://tcrf.net/Lunar:_The_Silver_Star%23Regional_Differences https://archive.md/o/238P9/https://tcrf.net/Lunar:_Eternal_Blue/Regional_Differences

Fumito Ueda's next game Anonymous 12/09/2023 (Sat) 06:00:09 No.7768 [Reply]
So a few people speculated that gen design was going to announce it's next project in 2023 based off some twitter post, but nothing was shown at TGS and 2023 is almost over. I know Ueda is working on something but do you think we will get any news in 2024? I just hope whatever it is it's similar to Ico.

Retro is when the game doesn't tell you to log in into facebook on the title screen.

Why did the 3d platformer genre lose popularity in the 00's? Afterwards it was mostly licensed games chasing trends and then it all stopped entirely.

How can I find actual arcades? Everything that's actually advertised somewhere is shitty hipster bars with overpriced diluted cocktails and 2 or 3 cabinets at most. Every time I ended up somewhere with actually good games it was by accident. Do I just need to luck out into it?
