Programming / Re: 65xx Assembler Alpha release: Schasm
« on: July 16, 2015, 07:39:31 pm »
Silly question: What made you choose that name?

I'm guessing its the bad Chinese impression that the Siamese cat does, that the bone of contention there. 
My favourite is Mulan although I would kill for a version with no fucking singing in (this what kills my enjoyment of most Disney animated movies for me), failing that Dumbo, I know the crows are a bit of a stereotype but they just crack me up.

The crows have nothing on the tent raising scene.

With such lines as "Work your back your hairless/hairy ape!"(I forget which line) while showing nothing but black workers... Hoooooooooooooo boy.

For the record, I'm sure the animation department was separate from the song writing department for that song, but holy shit it is accidentally racist as hell.

The song playing in that scene also has the workers being proud of how they can't write or read.

I know only the French version (Tout le monde veut devenir un cat, where cat is the english word, referring to the music band, and not to the animal), the racism isn't obvious at all in the french lyrics.

To the contrary, the movie seems to plead for melting-pot : there are cats of almost all races, each helping each other, even the group count what can represent blacks (scat cat), irish, asian, whatever (O'Maley), and the song is complete when the all-white Duchesse plays the harp.

I really wonder what can be in original lyrics to motivate such a reaction...



The Aristocats is my favourite, mainly because music is actually part of the film, and all the stereotypes about French and Paris :) So charmant :)

A shame it's considered as one of the poorest WD.

Among the "recents", I'd say Alladin as well. Even if I find it's kinda of an empty shell.

And it emphasizes the trend of the charismatic bad guy with the near-to-transparent hero a little too much (it'll get worse after).

I really want an Aristocats remake. There aren't enough songs, IMO, the ending was obviously pulled out of their ass at the last minute(Probably due to budgeting issues) and, of course...

The racism in Everybody Wants To Be A Cat. Hooooooooooooooo boy, was I uncomfortable as fuck watching that as an adult. I think my jaw literally dropped.

That case was the first thing that made me absolutely hate Rick Perry as a human being. Ignoring everything else the man has done in his career, positive and negative, he's still very easy to hate for his actions listed in that article.

Breath of Fire 3's desert is most certainly amongst the worst in gaming...

Yeah, programming the VCS/2600 is a bitch. The games may be simple, the code sure as fuck isn't.

You can have features and be accurate as Hell. It all depends on who's making the emulator. See Dolphin. I dunno if I'd call it accurate per se, but it's constantly striving towards accuracy(More than any single system emulator that isn't currently mature), and it's one of the most feature rich emulators out there.

Nintendo owns Pokemon, so it'd be nintendo.

I suspect the OP doesn't really realize how copyright works...

You know, I'd like to buy it on my 3DS simply to support Earthbound and hopefully get Mother 3 released here... BUT NOPE IT'S ONLY ON THEIR GODDAMNED FAILING CONSOLE

Anyone else experience the wonders of Sleep Paralysis?

Yeah, I dealt with that a lot as a kid. It just got really fucking annoying. I haven't had it happen in quite some time.

As for good arcade series:

Can't really go wrong with the 19(insert number here) series from Capcom. Topdown vertical shooters that are just a-fucking-mazing. Best ones are 19XX and 1944, IMO.

^ported to both the Genesis and the TurboGrafx-16.

@Tharthan, wasn't one of my favorites, but I believe the GBA shoot 'em up/RPG was Sigma Star Saga.

@M-Tee, as an arcade exclusive, Arkanoid Returns might be another good 2 player suggestion for a couple. Twinkle Star Spites(also Neo-Geo, Neo-Geo CD, Saturn, Dreamcast, PS2, and evidently some version of Virtual Console) is a competitive split screen cute 'em up.

Sigma Star Saga is correct. Needs a damned remake or sequel. :|

I hate to be that girl, but you accidentally included the ROM in and of itself as well as the stuff needed to reassemble it. I've removed the link. Feel free to add it back in once you've removed the ROM. It's labeled Final Fantasy.nes

I'm one of those people that's really picky about voice-acting in games. At least when it's in Japanese I can't tell if it's bad or not, so I don't find it to be a distraction that ruins the experience for me.

I can. It's fun when an anime is poorly dubbed in both English and Japanese.

And by fun, I mean fuck Fruits Basket's anime.

As long as it does not include the audio from the game, yes. That shit be copyrighted.

Kai has two variations in the dubbing. A kid friendly one that was broadcast on like Nicktoons and that 4Kids on Weekends, and one that's more faithful to the original. Recall, the original Japanese version aimed more towards 12 year olds than the original dubs were(Which were aimed at like 6-10 year olds).

Well, I gotta say, this is the most uniquely named hack I've seen in a long, long time! Hope it all goes well for ya.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Where to find Russian game translations?
« on: May 25, 2015, 08:13:44 pm »
There were a lot of unlicensed/pirate Russian games in the cartridge era. Barver Battle Saga: Tai Kong Zhan Shi had a Russian localization as a "Final Fantasy" game.

Good example, but as someone who beta tested that game's English release: Do not play this game. It is bad. Very bad. The end.
