Here's a pet peeve of mine:  Fonts that do not distinguish between the number zero and a capital O.  Or between a capital I and a lower case l.  Now, I am no font snob.  In fact, I've often heard other people complain about fonts on something and had no idea what they were even talking about.  For the most part I don't give a damn about fonts.  But having a unique symbol for every character is the one essential requirement I demand out of a font, and if your stupid favorite font can't even do that then it fails in its most basic purpose.

I think that's the first time I've ever heard anyone describe a name as 'innovative'...I know what's not going to be a naming criterion for me if I ever have kids.

There's only two different body parts I'd ever think of when someone says orbs.

Hint: They are both gender specific.


Come on, Kay, that's all you think about anyway.

Estelle is my most hated JRPG character. That's why I like ToV less than the other Tales games I've completed (Symphonia, Abyss, and Legendia.)

I need to play Vesperia in English just to see if this is a localization thing.  Estelle never really bothered me at all.  She's a bit stereotypical, sure, but not in a negative way.  I liked her general disposition, anyway.

Maybe it's just because I played it in Japanese, but Estelle never struck me as ditzy.

Is there something stopping you from getting Vesperia now?  Or Symphonia if you have a gamecube.

Localization announced! (IGN).  Later this year, apparently.

I don't know what was wrong with 'Oceans', but silly subtitle aside it's cool to be getting it.

Crappy?!  I don't know much about Dead Nation, but LittleBigPlanet, Infamous, Superstardust HD, and Wipeout are all great games.  I feel bad for anyone who already has them all, though...

I also like the victory lines, but what does that have to do with your language preference?  They're still there in Japanese...

And if they're going to do it at all, why make it DLC?  There's clearly space on a blu-ray.

Even if Yoda is serious, don't do it.  No need for that kind of thing here.

Jeez, you guys have a lot more issues to work out than just video games.  Personally I would never put up with that kind of crap.
2937  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: George Hotz (geohot) VS Sony. on: May 15, 2011, 01:13:56 AM
They're doing it by state?  What the hell...
2938  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: May 15, 2011, 01:12:29 AM
Yup, still don't understand this thread...

I don't understand this thread...

You know there is a whole spectrum of language comprehension in between 'not understanding a single word' and being fluent enough to watch something in its original language without subtitles.  Personally I tend to always prefer subtitled versions of things.  I think part of this is because I read very quickly so I'm barely taking my eys off the action anyway.

In the particular case of Japanese anime and games, well I do know a fair amount of Japanese so I'm only half-reading the subtitles anyway.  For most standard conversational stuff I don't have to read them at all, but as soon as you get into anything technical I'm very glad to have subtitles.  I have played import RPGs in Japanese before but I usually do so with a dictionary in my lap the whole time because I want to make sure I understand everything.  It can be a slow, tedius process (good practice, though...), and not something I would want to do for every game.  So for me, all other things being equal I definitely prefer having a Japanese language track.

Not that I'm defending Sanhime on making this the defining issue here.  That's ridiculous.
