Apparently some DLC wasn't listed earlier when I did the weekly listing. Here's the new stuff that I added to the earlier post:

I should probably do it a few hours later into the day.

NISA still hasn't said when they're going to release Ys VIII on the PC, but we did get some info on the very sub-par localization:
 
 

 
Guess they'll finally get rid of the big hole in their translation. Too little too late for me at this point though.

Nice. An excuse for me to leave the game alone until they patch it up.

 

Although...I'm surprised NISA got more flak as I think Aksys' overall job on Tokyo Xanadu may be worse than Ys VIII. I suppose more people played it. For...reasons...best not brought up on this thread. *coughcoughvitacoughcough*

 

With that said at least they're trying... Now if Xseed will just announce WTF they've been working on already. Come on guys, I just want to throw money at you so you can get money for Cold Steel III and the Crossbell arc. 

 

...

 

...

 

Fine, I'll find a way to pick up Senran Kagura PBS...and then give it to a friend of mine this Christmas who utterly hates this stuff.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Iffy is sometimes slow, but IME NISA stuff usually arrives a day or two before the release date.

XSeed's Microbloggery Series on the upcoming Zwei game has been compiled at their blog. Mostly just them extrapolating on a couple basic things/questions and nothing particularly overly interesting.

As a side note, I have to wonder what is going through Falcom's mind when they name some of these random background books. The same books can be found in both Cold Steel games and I think the two Crossbell games as well.

 

 

 

It's good to know that it'll turn out to be a great decent port more than likely. Hopefully it doesn't impact Cold Steel II's PC port release date. Would say great, but I doubt he's the one doing the actual work.

Wow. Just too funny. I must say I quite envy his job.

. Stuff started to feel like a drag. Now only if they'll fix SO 5. I could barely stand an hour of that game before I started getting a bit dizzy from the camera.

Yeah, my Nep also shipped yesterday. It'll be here Thursday as well. Guess I shouldn't complain about the shipping speed though, since I always chose the free option.

Not a huge Game Informer fan, but their latest issue has a pretty nice article on the history of Dragon Ball Z games, along with a write-up dedicated to Fighter Z.

Super excited about Harvest Moon and hopefully story of Season to the Switch.

I am loving Stardew Valley on switch.

It is so good to be able to play it wherever.

lymels planet is the 2nd planet in the game.  There's only 6 planets in the game so you were about 1/4th into the game.  Games more fun if you play as reimi since edge is pretty garbage despite being the main character.  He gets half decent towards the end of the game but of the melee characters he's easily the worst.  Especially since all the other characters either have good combos to air juggle enemies or can long range attack them.  You'll like the game much more when you get cat loli meracle and cyborg bacchus.  the former juggles gorillas the latter shoots blackholes that block the screen and keep enemies sucked into the center.


Currently on the look out for a decent price on Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness.

And she voiced 2 main characters which was incredibly stupid.

About 3/4 in. You were pretty close to endgame.

 

I actually loved SO4. It was a blast and I got completely absorbed in the postgame. I don't know if I wanna play it a second time though. I hope this means SO5 is coming to PC soon.

Huh, apparently after the whole NISA translation mishap with Ys some of the voice actors from Cold Steel have drafted a letter to XSeed (and Falcom) saying they won't reprise their role if NISA gets a hold of Cold Steel III. The voice actors in question are Sean Chiplock (Rean), Benjamin Diskin (Jusis), Kaiji Tang (Gaius), Rena Strober (Emma), Cassandra Lee Morris (Fie & Alfin), and Kira Buckland (Celine & Elise). A little surprising to see them jump in on this whole thing.

 

I won't link to the letter, but apparently it was done in the Falcom discord channel where Sean Chiplock hangs out on occasion. I don't see NISA getting it like they did Ys. I'm not sure I want to imagine what NISA would do to the translation. Probably purposely change something up and do like what they did with Atelier Rorona where they renamed Esti Erhard to Esty Dee.

The voice doesn't quite fit. Everything about her design is perfect except her voice.

So I saw the apology, but how bad was the translation? Was it really that bad? Any examples or articles detailing how bad it was? I like to laugh at Nisa sometimes.
