For what it is, I still had fun. I did not mind the deaths at all. I saw exactly where I had messed up and tried to do better the next time.
It helps that the encounters are relatively short and you usually only lose a minute or two.
Also, some of the deaths were suicide because I wanted to try and do better (death brings you to the latest 'in-battle checkpoint' while restart encounter restarts the whole shebang)

There's only 2 areas I'd say were frustrating... which are sadly back to back.
Code:
When you are Ellie and you are in the cabin with the guy, and just after when they come from the roof. You have no items, very limited ammo (only a rifle and a bow too) and you have to hold on inside this 'cage' against more than a dozen of them...

But yeah, I quickly understood that OHKO clickers was bullshit, and thus my first survival upgrade was the defensive shiv. Saved my ass A LOT.

Can anyone vouch on the difficulty of harder settings in Last of Us?

Read above my 248 deaths on hard.
Damn clickers...

Yeah, I remember playing with my friends who were new and level 5 and I used my level 30.
That means there was somebody in the other team that would wreck the living shit of all my friends while I was busy wrecking the living shit out of all their low levels.
Fun stuff.

A third of my department got canned and another department we were close to got canned entirely.
Re-organizations are the worst part of corporative jobs.

Trying to get that esports money, but Star is nowhere to be found =(

Well, I got my Internet back, I can play with you too.
My nick on LoL is "Sibunna".
I dread how many patches I'll have to download after missing a month =(

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.

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.
