If you live in that small town and gave no sign of life, they assume you are dead right now.
The bodies are burned so badly that they can't know who all the corpses belong to.

We had a giant accident in Quebec this weekend.

A tactical warhead would have done less damage than this major fuck up.

Hey guys, I have Internet at home again!

So, I just finished The Last of Us which i played on hard from start to finish.
I'm not sure if 234 death is bad or terrible ^^;
Considering I've never played an FPS on a console before, I played it stealth/melee because I can't aim worth shit with a controller.

Great game though.

Since we talked about Gundam SEED Destiny not too long ago.

I watched the EDITED version of GSD (that's the 4 movie version, not episodes) in the last few days.
In the EDITED version, they even make Athrun the hero of GSD. Kira gets his usual badass moment spotlights, but overall, the story narrator is Athrun and they keep all of his scenes while scrapping almost every Shinn scene that doesn't move the plot forward (so pretty much all the Stella crap).

I just thought that was a funny little blurb to add.

Fucken Sokka can bring on the chuckles.

Among my favorite ones: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vr9xPqGD8o

Wouldn't emulation still be possible though despite that?

A modern powerful computer still struggles to emulate the PS2 perfectly.
While SE has the code needed to make it run a lot better, a PS3 emulation would likely have an abysmal FPS, sound tearing and graphic problems.

They're also not usually all that good for how much time is put into them. Mind you it's not as bad as a machine translation or something, but it seems like most amateur translators have a great grasp of Japanese > English translation, but not so much a grasp on English grammar.

No matter; Dejap's Tales of Phantasia translation is *totally* the superior fan translation even compared to the official one. x)



fo sure
Some people argue that they took too many liberties with the script, but sometimes, between a terrible well translated joke or a new joke with liberties that's actually funny... you're better with the later.

-----

Heck, I'm actually going to go deeper in my argument here.
Having done translation once, I can fully understand what went through their minds.

Take this example: http://www.flickr.com/photos/14011431@N04/2705889296/in/set-72157603569309062
The original text was about 2 JAPANESE books with different styles that are in JAPANESE only and the only reason JAPANESE people read these books is that most school make students read them.

I could have translated this faithfully... but that would just be a big wtfnofunny.
So I took liberties. I considered that I am reaching to an English speaking audience around the world who's only common point is that they played Persona 3. From there, I valued that the most common trait would be to play jRPGs. Among jRPGs, most people know at least a bit about FFVIII and FFX. So, instead of Japanese books, it's now about FFVIII and FFX.

The raw essence of the joke is about the same, but now people can actually A) understand it B) think it's slightly funny.

On the other hand... this one I'm ashamed of: http://www.flickr.com/photos/14011431@N04/1480093758/in/set-72157603569309062

That one is just impossible to localize well and it just sucks... I ended up putting an explanation page after explaining who that guy is and that he does flower arrangement. Not funny at all.

-----

And then there's this one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/14011431@N04/2584684870/in/set-72157603569309062
That's another one that was untranslatable and I just went f-it... I'm making a Tsukihime joke here because it just fits so well.
It has nothing at all to do with the initial joke, but this one at least can potentially be pretty funny.

So, ahoy to Arche and nuptial tiger-like behaviours.

^Fans are still waiting for Vesperia? Like, for real?

The only thing that was left in Pandora's box was Hope after all.

I just quoted Eusis on Neogaf. It makes me wonder who else has the same username there.
I've seen Eusis and cj_iwakura up to now.

There is absolutely no way that this will be abused, ever.

Yeah, no one would do that...

OH WAIT!

My FF5 moment would be when Gilgamesh does that thing at the end. The 'last' thing.

Some other ones I can think of would be:
- Yakuza 4's last multi epic fight with the small talks in-between
- Charging a 100% Replekia Ar Tonelico with Synchronicity Chain in Ar Tonelico 2
- The end of almost every Pheonix Wright's case when Pheonix's theme starts playing and you're demolishing the prosecution
- The Vascillia Sky level in ZoE2 makes you feel really awesome
- Whenever you fire Maria's Energy Burst in Star Ocean 3. One of the most awesome move I've seen in an RPG

Personally I view Kanji as bisexual.
The fact he's not that against dating Naoto as a guy or girl makes me think he'd go for a person he loves, whichever sex they'd be.

ToGF

Almost there... almost there...

Titles left:
Asbel - Steal Items#2
Pascal - Attribute exploit #3
Pascal - Critical Hit #3
Pascal - Steal Items #2
Pascal - Poisonproof

Not very surprising that Pascal is taking more time since I've never used her at all.
