But for whatever reason, I couldn't even get the time of day for either Tales title, which is bizarre, considering our audience is pretty much directly the audience they're trying to get to buy their game. 

Sometimes I'm convinced that they don't want anyone to buy their games...

What does Vanillaware have to do with their localisation?

Xseed doesn't employ programmers.  At all.  They just produce the script and then hand it over to the developer.  And of course they handle the publishing part as well.  This isn't an unusual practice in this industry.  It does require a developer that at least cares a little, though...it seems that right now Vanillaware is frantically trying to finish Dragon's Crown and can't spare a single programmer to do something with Xseed's script.

The really sad this is that if you read some of Tom's comments on the Xseed forums it sounds like the translation was already finished.

Best way to relieve anger is to rub one out.
This doesn't work....you can't rub when pissed, you aggresively yank and pull, which can lead to pain and discomfort.

Never in my life have I been that angry...

You've got to be kidding me...

Before people go blaming Xseed or the PSP market, it sounds like the people really holding this up were Vanillaware.  Xseed has basically been sitting around waitng for them to do their part for months...

Damn kids should stop hoping for a better future.  Shut up and be obedient little worker drones so you can be just as miserable as everyone else.

Mike's Hard Lemonade?  That is worth raging about.  Stupid kids have no taste.
2242  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Siliconera to announce Squeenix "Exclusive" tomorrow on: April 30, 2012, 01:26:50 AM
You all seem to be assuming it's something from Japan.  S-E owns a lot of western studios now...
2243  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Siliconera to announce Squeenix "Exclusive" tomorrow on: April 29, 2012, 07:08:36 PM
My real guesses would include one of the following....
A) A Type-0 based anime.
B) DQX beta key giveaway.

You know it specifically says "game", right?

Well, they already said they're working with third parties, just not who.

I was just pointing out that they weren't on my list because I was only listing stuff Sony owns.  And there are no guarantees with licensing deals, since the licensor may or may not be on board with the idea.
2245  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Sony's Smash Bros. on: April 28, 2012, 08:27:39 PM
Spyro and Crash are both owned by Activision now (after a series of confusing transactions...), but yeah, if they can get the rights to them then they seem like obvious choices.
2246  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Sony's Smash Bros. on: April 28, 2012, 07:26:51 PM
Sony actually has quite a few IPs to draw on, but I think their biggest problem is that none of them have the same nostalgia and familiarity as Nintendo's characters.  Part of the problem is that Sony just hasn't been in the business as long, but also they were not initially focused on building persistent franchises and brands (something I think they're trying to change).  I was thinking about what properties they're likely to include and was kind of shocked by how many of them were only from this console generation.  A lot of others didn't start until the PS2.  Here's a list of properties I would be surprised if they weren't in the game (not counting what has already been announced):
Infamous
Jak and Daxter (actually I would almost put this as confirmed since there's a Jak and Daxter stage, but they haven't confirmed any of the characters yet...)
LittleBigPlanet
Ratchet and Clank
Resistance (they did Killzone, so...)
Uncharted

Less likely but still possible:
Ape Escape
Folklore
Gravity Daze (yeah it's super-new and only has one game, but it has a lot of people talking...and gravity-controlling powers would rock in a game like this)
Heavenly Sword
LocoRoco
Syphon Filter
Team Ico's stuff
Warhawk
White Knight Chronicles (yes it's Level-5 but Sony owns the IP)

Long-shots:
Dark Cloud
Demon's Souls
Everquest (not really sure how you would do MMORPG characters...)
Legend of Dragoon
Rogue Galaxy
Wild Arms

(Funny how all the RPGs ended up on that list...I didn't do that on purpose, I swear)

Potentially for stages/items but not necessarily characters:
Gran Turismo (yeah, I don't know how that would work either but it's one of their biggest franchises...)
Hot Shots Golf
Motorstorm
thatgamecompany's stuff (come on, you know a Flower or Journey stage would be awesome)
Wipeout

Sony has also said that there will be third-party franchises in the game.  They haven't said who but presumably they're going to focus on third parties that have traditionally been Playstation-centric.  Even so, this really opens the doors to a lot of potential franchises...

So there's lot's of stuff to drawn on, but it's mostly pretty new stuff.
2247  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Sony's Smash Bros. on: April 28, 2012, 01:40:34 AM
Er...they've only announced six characters.
2248  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Sony's Smash Bros. on: April 27, 2012, 02:45:37 PM
So it's real and official.  And it has the terrible name, "PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale".

OK, rereading this old thread I was clearly very down on this game.  And now that there's some video out there it looks even more like a carbon-copy of Smash Bros. than I feared.  Clearly it isn't winning any originality points.  But at least all the game journalists who have played it are claiming that it's pretty fun.  So it's a rip-off, but perhaps not a shitty rip-off.

I don't know what to think.
2249  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Record of Agarest Wars 2 LE.... and its coming out in the US... on: April 25, 2012, 05:28:15 AM
In India and China, girls as young as 9 are being sold off as brides with no choice in the matter, as if they're nothing but a piece of property! With these sorts of things going on, suddenly the whole Otaku subculture doesn't seem so "harmless" anymore.

...

This thread has jumped the shark...

I hate the new practice of mods replacing usernames with their first names. I don't know why, but I do. It's not like I have anything against anyone personally. In fact I have it whenever people around here throw around 1st names like we're supposed to know.
It does kinda kill the whole impersonality of the internet, doesn't it?

No, Facebook did that.
