AT2 text overflow on the optional boss crashing the game.
Never got fixed.

You either have to abuse a bug to win that fight in one turn or play on an emulator because someone released a fix for the rom.
I thought that was Ar Tonelico 1? At least I recall there being an optional boss crash in Ar Tonelico 1 which was introduced in the English version.

That's 2. I don't recall 1 having any critical bug.

...okay after looking into this, I was apparently mixing up Kanade and Raki in my memories, which I consider to be totally reasonable as they look fairly similar and both are optional bosses.

The boss with the bug in 2 wasn't even optional.  I mean, there was an optional mode where you could fight her again and again and she would get stronger every time to unlock stuff and that whole thing was basically impossible in the US version thanks to the bug.  But you still fight her once during the story and you have to beat her within 3 turns or the game will crash.

Fortunately the story battle isn't really that hard and beating her within 3 turns is totally doable.  But still, you actually have the double whammy of a potentially game-breaking bug in a non-optional story fight and and entire mode full of shit to unlock that isn't even possible to do in the US version.

...and then there's a few parts in that game where they forgot to translate shit at all and literally just left in the Japanese text (in Japanese characters, not even romanized or something).  In additional to all the usual spelling and grammatical mistakes you often see in bad localizations.

AT2's localization was pretty much a complete disaster.

Oh shit yeah! I remember all those IPDs in Japanese.
Had forgotten about that.

Well it looks like the patch has been delayed until early next year I assume this also means the PC version as well. http://nisamerica.com/blog/ys-viii-lacrimosa-dana-localization-update

From the link:

"On that note, as we want this version to be the definitive release of the title, we will be holding the PC version back to coincide this this release as well."

If the translation was this bad why didn't they just delay both versions instead of releasing the PS4 version early. I'm just thinking right now of saying alright you know i'm not going to wait until next year to play it i'm just going to start playing it I mean the translation isn't bad to the point where it's unplayable there's just alot of errors.

Gives me more time to save up. I'll play Ys Origins/Memories of Celceta in the meantime.

The translation isn't terrible.  It is mediocre, however.  Still, even with the poor localization, the story is mostly coherent.

Under no circumstances should Quentin Tarantino be allowed to befoul Star Trek.

That still doesn't change my opinion.  Yes the name is stupid.  But at the end of the day, the localization, as poor as it was did leave us with a coherent story.  It wasn't so bad that the localization interfered with my enjoyment of the game.  The biggest annoyance in my opinion were the interception and suppression missions which felt like chores.  No amount of localization can fix that.

Technically the translation isn't wrong. That is a big hole.

You can be "not wrong" and still horrible.  Especially in translations.
