TL;DR: Yeah I understand why you might not like the translation 20 years later but that doesn't mean you need to be an asshole about it.
Once you put something up for sale you lose any right to have your feelings protected in this sort of thing.
People paid for Lunar and got fart jokes, we are allowed to call it what it is, a bastardization. If this was a fan translation I could see how you would want us to be more respectful since it was done using someones free time but this was his job. I don't care if it was one of the first, I don't care if it paved the way for the future, in the end it is a bad translation and I will gladly call it like I see it.
I cut him some slack but I don't cut his work the same slack.

You know, balance changes are such an interesting topic to me in general when comparing regional versions of games. I've sometimes had suggestions made about (mostly very minor) balance changes for things I've worked on professionally, though rarely did anything make it in. When I worked on Bunny Must Die's official English PC release, though, it was really interesting because I was handed a version with way different balance and various changes compared to the version people knew to begin with, even before the localization process begin.

I wonder how many times stuff like that ended up being a case of that? It certainly has been the case many times, for games that were basically "further finished" for their overseas releases. I find it fascinating.

A lot of games get this but then they are back ported to the Japanese side as a "International" version or some such. Did this happen for any of your projects?

Jesus, did really have to white knight Victor like that? *Some* of the things they did were great *at the time*, the rest have aged like milk in the sun.

If he wants to be critical of the quality of the games, he's not wrong too. A lot of the stuff Wrecking Designs did is objectively bad, thus them earning the name.

Heck that quote from Victor even says when they started it was a new thing and not everything they did was the right thing to do.

23
Silver Stars plot was changed A LOT in the remake. I suggest playing the Sega CD version over the remake any day.

24
In my opinion a localization should take the spirit of a joke and find the English equivalent, not rewrite their own joke in its place. I find it very hard to believe they had a hard time translating a joke about liking fish so they just said "screw it, fart jokes!".
I am very vocal about disliking loose translations, I know straight uber faithful translations are usually dry and stilted but I would rather have that than a working designs translation now a days. Not every translation needs to be "Jazzed up", sometimes I want a vanilla fantasy rpg rather than something akin to Deathspank (Note Deathspank is a terrible "Comedy" diablo clone for various consoles if you didn't know).

25
So how much did Working Designs tamper with the Arc the lad games? I remember those games having less pointless jokes etc. It was later in the companies life so maybe they took it more seriously?

26
If you want people to act more human in games they would not act at all like the characters in Lunar, they would have PTSD from their adventures not lots of fun times saving the world. In the end I don't understand a lot of localizers want to "Jazz up" everything, not everything has to be the Simpsons, a story can go without a joke every 5 minutes.
I think I had it with working designs old stuff when I read a thing about their voice actors trying to slip in as many fart noises without getting caught as a little game they played.
Also pop culture jokes take me out of the game hardcore.

27
Got I loved Lunar silver star so much as a kid, I hate that it was butchered so hard, to think I could of been playing an even better game! The Lunar games need a legends of localization.

Maybe if they convert it to NTSC so its not slower, I will stick with the Japanese version.

I would love a remake of LSD with constant updates with new random events and roguelite elements. FUND IT!

Has anyone played through the SaGa 1 wonderswan patch before and could maybe tell me if its worth waiting for a better translated version? In the end I have a million games that I can play including the sequel so I can wait for as long as it would take for someone to maybe decide to pick up and retranslate it.

That game that at face value is great but one thing or another just ruins it! Basically the game that has just one or two flaws that makes it go from a stellar game to just crap in your opinion.
Also explain why for conversations sake

Romancing SaGa minstrel song
The time advancement system in this game (Where if you fight and win a battle time advances but if you run away or don't get into a battle time stands still) drives me nuts in this game! And there are so many systems at play that are just obtuse or so weirdly implemented that even following a guide you can easily screw yourself out of content! Also to get all the content in the game and fight the true final boss you have to beat the game SO MANY TIMES! BLAGH!

Hey I notice the Quest for Glory collection hit steam and it got me thinking of games with save imports from sequel to sequel and the features they bring, so far I have
Quest for glory 1 to 5 (Brings your stats over)
Baldurs gate 1 to 2 (Brings your stats over and opens some side quests)
Suikoden in various forms (Varies from game to game but mostly brings stats over and opens side quests)
Uhhh thats it for me, any more?

34
I am sure someone will mod it to hell and back to make it great sooner or later, its just how people do ya know?

35
I'm looking for digital man :).

36
Hey I want to know what are some good games to get in this genre. I downloaded a few pc yu gi oh games but they were just random duels with no real plot etc and the 1997 magic game has rock stupid ai, any suggestions for something like the pokemon TCG but less old?

I read somewhere that one of the devs said they got a lot farther in development than the release we have which makes me pretty sad and interested in what we are missing out on.

Final fantasy record keeper is actually a very fun game if you like final fantasy, puzzle and dragons is an insanely addicted good game if you like match games.

Blah that sucks! I wish it was a bit more moderated

This is an interesting development, what is your take on this? I have a feeling most of the hacks are out there in the while but support for fan hacks from a company is always nice.
