Say again? Celeron?

It's a brand name for cheap budget CPUs by Intel.

Beat Deponia yesterday. It's only the first game in a trilogy, so I still have some ways to go. It's a classic point & click with fantastic art and very funny writing. It's by the same author who also did the Edna & Harvey games, only with much much matured art. The voice acting (at least the original German one - it's a German game) is top notch as well. Some puzzles were a bit eww, but with adventure games I always have a walkthrough ready for when you're stuck for more than 15 minutes anyway. Call it experience :P If you enjoyed classic Lucas Arts adventures like Day of the Tentacle or Sam & Max, I'd give this a bash.

Also beat Danganronpa 2 a while ago. It's better than the first game because the characters are more fun IMO. In every other way it's pretty much more of the same. Enjoyable if you can imagine playing an animu murder mystery.

If there was menu re-arrangement done for the english patch then they'd most definitely want to re-use the hack instead of re-doing all the work.

This is the part that plainly does not work. A menu hack isn't something you can just apply to a ROM and then have menus as big as you want. It's hand-changed ASM and/or tilemaps for every single menu screen to fit the English. It's completely useless for re-use in another translation. And if you have beginner hackers who think they can make a translation into their native language with script tools, they'll fail at this stage of the project and waste their time.

Out of curiosity, are you including Tales of the Abyss in the 3DS lineup? If so, what was the issue with that when it was transferred over from the PS2? Honestly, it's probably my least favorite game that I've played in the series, but it's been a long time, and I still consider picking it up from time to time. If it's a mess then I guess I'll skip it anyway.

Nah, didn't think about Abyss. I haven't played the 3DS port. I don't know what your issue with it is, I still consider the PS2 version to be the best Tales game all around. It's the only one with a story close to being interesting and it had real character development, something which other Tales games also can't boast with. Don't remember much about the gameplay, standard Tales stuff iirc. Though it has been 10 years since I played it, I might be talking out of my butt.

Finished Tales of Hearts R (Vita). It's a solid Tales game that doesn't feel castrated for being a mobile game. In other words, it's heaps and bounds better than the sad sad crap we got on the DS from the Tales franchise. At least the stuff we got translations for, can't compare this to the original DS version of Hearts since I haven't played it. The only difference to a console Tales game is that the enemies aren't visible on the map and it's instead a classical random battle every few steps deal as in other JRPGs.

Also a FYI: Unlike most other Tales games that were localized this one only has the Japanese voice acting. Some people wouldn't have wanted it any other way regardless, others don't care (that would be me), but for some I hear this is an issue. *shrug*

I don't think we need to encourage hoarder mentalities, that was bad enough in the last decade with MAME and other romsets.

Rasberry Pi can't even run NES games without frame skipping now and then.

Finished Dragon Age: Inquisition.

It's pretty good. It's definitely quantity over quality, but even the cookie cutter stuff is still decent at least, and there are quests that are great. It's a feast for explorers since the world is really huge and packed with interesting stuff. Sometimes overwhelmingly so. Still I was entertained. Don't expect a return to DA Origins though, it's pretty different to that in most ways.

RPG of the year 2014 remains Divinity Original Sin though, without question.

Apprently the mistake this thread was pointing to has already been fixed. The title said it was for Spirit Tracks when it's actually Phantom Hourglass.

I really hated that you build up characters only to have them leave the party all the time. That's the only thing I remember about it, haven't played it since it was new. Oh, and there was same uber corny voice acted battle quote "Hey, ho, fluffy, go!" or some such.... oh god.

I'm guessing the vast majority of updates to a translation come within the first 6 months after release, so the numbers shouldn't be skewed that much. It's not a survey that fulfills scientific standards, but I think it clearly demonstrates the trends in the community.

One just can't appreciate how great Visual Studio is until one had to work a larger project with Eclipse.

So yeah this is good news.

I loved the first Abrams Trek movie (the second had issues, but was overall still enjoyable enough), so I'm optimistic. Also reports from the set say that they do a ton of effects old school with miniatures and hand constructed sets instead of green screen. That, combined with the fact that the script isn't coming from the same hack as the prequels should guarantee that the new movies will be better than those at least. Not that that's hard.

We aren't promoting anything, we are just providing a platform. If people spend a year creating an awesome hack and then are too lazy to take 10 minutes to submit a news post about it to get people interested, it's not RHDN's fault.

I only recognize 5 or so out of those. Is it bad if one of them was the porn star? ;D

I doubt they still have the old assets that were cut. And for a proper remake they'd have to redo everything anyway and at that point they might as well create a new game from scratch. The franchise lie dormant for a long time, they won't generate a ton of buzz for it like they do with a FF port.

FYI, SoM's prequel Seiken Densetsu did get a GBA remake and it was pretty shitty. So maybe be glad they aren't remaking it yet  :-X

I'm a little reluctant because I'm european, and in Europa it was called Megadrive :)

Don't give in to the imperialist Murricans  :police:

That's some excellent progress, good job!
