Didn't Gaijinworks have something to do with that Miami Law DS game?

Why'd he name the company that anyway?

Yeah but that was before that Sunsoft thing. Since then I haven't heard anything beyond Ireland occasionally popping up to criticize how localizations are handled.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Working Designs is what I was thinking of. Wow... up until now, I thought WD did Grandia II, but I guess it was Ubi. Well, both WD and Ubi did a great jorb. Sony should shoot themselves in the face for their job on Grandia I.

What was wrong with Grandia's translation?

Probably complaining that there weren't enough pop culture references that would be dated in a couple of years.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Our next games are on Sony, announcement and details forthcoming. These will actually see the light of day (unlike PS2 Goemon and the unannounced XBOX360 one). I believe they will make some people very happy for a couple very specific reasons.

Some of the VA were really bad/annoying, but I can't think of any issues with the actual translation...
