My hype for FFXV died a long time ago.
If they want me, they'll have to reconquer me like an old lover left on the wayside.

Not sure if this will be TGS news, but the FF13 portal site has a big fat "Steam" logo on it...
(I would like to add right now that I wish more console games would go on Steam).

Wow, I had no idea it was THAT well received in North America.
Good for us.

Man, Canada is such a third world country in some respects.

I remember an article about 2 surveys that were done around the same time.

One showed Montreal as the third most 'connected' city in the world (types of usage, hours per week, average ability).
The other showed Montreal as the top 100 worst internet in the world (speed, availability, cost).

Yeah...

Amazon.ca just went up in my esteem from bad to weird.
Tons of things are only available on amazon.COM and .CA can be pretty bare sometimes.

AND THEN http://www.amazon.ca/Monster-Musume-Vol-4-OKAYADO/dp/162692046X/

(and this was in the "People who bought Ar Nosurge also bought this" lol)
...
(man, volume 1-6 for 54.10$ ! What a steal)

Does Ar Nosurge (regular) come with swag?

Is this the thread about the ethic of censorship in media?
Oh wait no.

My boss (who teaches several basic computer classes per week) sent out an email this morning  saying she doesn't want us charging our phones on the work PCs any longer because she's worried it's going to give them a virus.  Apparently a U2 album suddenly downloaded onto her iPhone without her knowing about it and because of her profound misunderstanding of how electronic devices work and refusal to do a 3 minute google search on the subject, she thinks she got it from a virus off her work computer.  I just..I can't even...

It would indeed be wonderful if people would Google things first then freak out.

I never heard anything about this but here's 3 whole seconds of me Googling key words from your story:

There you have it. Not a virus, just aggressive marketing.

I can't believe I forgot DeJap's ToP translation.

wtf is Mash?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M*A*S*H_(TV_series) ;)

Ace Attorney
While I can understand the difference between ENG/JAP for the names, I just can't see Ryuuichi Naruhodou yawnboring being cooler than mothereffing Phoenix Wright.
Such a badass name.

I had a long discussion today about all the things that were destroyed in translation in pretty much any domain. So how about offsetting that with the rare cases of things that actually ended up better after being translated.
This can be movies, song, video games, whatever.

Tales of Destiny - Opening
Perhaps not shared by many, but I much prefer the Tales of Destiny English opening.
I find it sounds much more medieval/mystical than the Japanese one which is just flavour of the month Jpop:
ENG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ejJc8D2bUQ
JAP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3tCPUjpAbE

Macross Plus - Voices
I like the English version better (probably unpopular personal taste though)
ENG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rkcg5A2-C28
JAP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFGBFq2vMLI

Back to the Future
The terrible French translation makes those movies so much more funny.

Dragon Ball Z - Goku's voice
Any version other than the Japanese has Goku sounding like an actual men whose balls have dropped.
(and yes, he his voiced by a women in JP)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=Nz39GUm12WY#t=214

Soul Nomad - Gig
Yuri Lowenthal's performance of a lifetime.
ENG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPKkImsdMiA&feature=player_detailpage#t=3523
JAP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGMfJQXaHTE&feature=player_detailpage#t=150

Why would you deep-fry mars bars...

Was it right after waking up? Could be low blood pressure.

Finally forced myself to finish Kingdom of Amalur.
I was pretty far along and just needed to finish the last dungeon.

The balance is pretty bad and the story is really bare, but as the first game out of a studio, it's very good.
