I don't know what you mean by "borked translation", I never had a problem u.derstanding the story. It's actually a bit simple for some massive conspiracy theory of a bioweapon engineered by some major company.

Is not so much with the dialogue or how the story is presented. Is more with details like in-game documents that contradicts information given within the same or other installments in the series.

Resident Evil 2:

"Photo B - Ben Bertolucci's photograph is instead attributed to "R. Lambert", a character made-up by the Localization department for reasons unknown."

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis:

In the "Business Fax", which can be found in the Umbrella office, the line "NE-T Type specimens" is mistranslated as "NE-T type virus". This has the consequence of mistakenly establishing a new virus - the "NE-T virus". This does not exist in official canon however.

"In the "Medical Instruction Manual", Douglas Lauper was renamed "Douglas Rover"."

Nicholai Zinoviev's surname was mistranslated as "Ginovaef". This spelling has been used consistently in all English material as a consequence.

Resident Evil 5:

Tricell - Travis Enterprises was renamed "Travis Trading". Also in this file, the Natural History Conspectus was renamed the "Survey of Natural Histoy".

Those are from the Wiki, but if you search you'll find more stuff for sure.

Also, the guys that make the 8-4 play podcast said that the translation of RE: Revelations could have been better but everything else was fine. They didn't give any details in what was wrong though.

Either way, I'm going to spend a lot of time shooting stuff in the Mercenaries mode to be bothered by errors in translations in RE6 (I'm pretty sure that it will have some errors though, every game has one at least, is like a bad tradition at this point or something).

If anything the story is perhaps lacking in terms of depth, but it's easy to follow.

It does has depth but is all over the fucking the place and is not all that easy to follow. I mean look at this.

i dont get why marth is so popular in japan.

Because he's kawaii and girls can do Yaoi stuff with him? *shrugs*

The only reason Demon's and Dark Souls are considered difficult is for its design and the way the game expect you to play it with not much guidance. Anyone that has put hours on both games will tell you that they are not hard, if anything they are pretty tricky, annoying and extremely enjoyable experiences. And after that a bunch people will say that you're crazy for even saying such a thing. But hey, it's true.

PvP is full of BS on both games though.

If people love difficult games, why aren't the ones I listed more popular?

Because normal people suck at playing video games.

I'm not saying that gamers are super humans, but to finish and play games like Ninja Gaiden Black, Vanquish or DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou at their maximun levels of difficulty (like they are suppose to be played in the first place) is something that required a lot of passion and time. Something that not much people is willing to do.

I know right? Who would even care about the story of RE at this point taking in consideration how borked the English translation is in pretty much all the games. Or so some hardcore fans of series say.

Tried the demo of Skullgirls.

The character select screen reminded me a lot from the one of the original Marvel vs. Capcom. That said I'm gonna bought the game as soon as I can, been waiting for this one for a long time now.

Get Leon's leather jacket... with $1300 Biohazard 6 (Resident Evil 6) Premium Edition

Eh, it doesn't seem like a bad waste of money (that is if you happen to be a RE fan with a lot of money, or crazy to cosplay as Leon).

^Oh it's from FFVIII. So that's why I didn't know. :p

Played a bit of Sazh's scenario... I prefer playing Poker, I don't really get the Chrono one much.

Neither did I, but I keep playing it for like more than 40 minutes without knowing what the hell I was doing until the game "click" with me. It's better than Blitzball or dodging lightning bolts.

What's the condition to beating his chapter?  How many token-thingies do you need?

30 fortune medals.

I'm intrigued by "PuPu". Is this a new monster or does he come from other title? Never seen him before. :o Is very cute though.

There was people saying that Lost Planet 2 was popular in Japan, but the only thing I know for certain is how little praise that game got at release.
3626  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: April 10, 2012, 01:23:26 PM
Anywho.  Any info on when we are getting the new DLC?  I wanna play Ezio dress up already.

Hmm, *I think* we are going to get that in May if I remember well.

A touch of horror in the latest Dragon's Dogma trailers

If we got this before Versus XIII it'll be a miracle.

This second trailer sure makes me believe that the series is gonna finish with RE6. And you know what? I would be totally cool if that happens, but RE7 might happen anyway.

That said, I better not watch more videos of RE6 from now on because I don't wanna ruin the experience and get my hopes up.

One of my favorite tweets from Hideki Kamiya (director of games like Resident Evil 2, Okami, Bayonetta and others).
