Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-man very clearly have a sexual preference. as does Mario, Link, and maybe Mega Man. We... we don't know.
Well, just because Mario and Link are rescuing women doesn't necessarily mean it's some kind of sexual thing, does it?  It's actually slightly disturbing to contemplate.

It raises the question: could sex be removed from such games entirely?  Does whatever necessary narrative suspense depend that heavily on the notion of a hero acting out of love?

Like I said, once someone figures out how some of the story text is stored, it should be easy to extract all of the rest of the story text.

And without knowing how the story text is stored, how can you expect to proceed from here..?

Well, golly gosh.  And a 72% voter turnout too.

Still, with only a 2% margin, one would expect this to be the start of heavy negotiations rather than a complete exit.

Thanks.  Guess I should expect to see it soon, then.

Don't forget to make an off-site backup somewhere!

Not much call for digital TCG games back on the old GB.  The closest you're likely to get is SNK vs Capcom Card Fighters for NGPC and its sequel. (Apparently they messed with the mechanics in the DS version, making it crap.)

It's getting panned pretty severely.  It's almost as if Capcom might have known what they were doing when they passed this up.  At this rate it will be available at a discount soon enough.

One can only hope that definitely-not-Castlevania will fare better.

Ahh, Torment!  I have been avoiding spoilers for the last fifteen years.  I should get around to playing that soon.

Can I ask a question about Animal Crossing: New Leaf?  I'm just one bug short of a complete encyclopedia.  It's in the top row, between the Giant Stag and the Hercules Beetle Horned Elephant.  I thought it might be a cockroach, but apparently those don't appear in the wild in ACNL, so I have no idea exactly what it could be.  Do I have to do anything special to make it appear?  Is it just a matter of time?  Should I expect to only find it on Tortimer Island, or is it more likely to appear in my village?

Does anyone use Brian Provinciano's NESHLA, or is that only useful when coding something from scratch?

Which makes sense, sort of, since they're 8x16 and the in-game font is 16x16.
To be clear, the font pictured above appears to be the same font used in the tutorial (though the tutorial may very well use a different, compressed copy of the same font).

There are many distros... which one?
Doesn't pretty much every major distro rely on some online package manager/update system?

If you have a problem with any of the code on the software (e.g. updating)...  you can disable the updating yourself.
Oh, sure, and since it's open source, you can just rewrite the code.  :P

In addition, Ubuntu is a Linux based operating system that doesn't have annoying updates. Updates exist to fix security holes for example and are very important.
Are you saying the updates for Windows aren't for fixing security holes and aren't very important?

I will readily admit that Linux at least doesn't require system restarts and such forth when it installs its various updates.

...Are you transcribing all this stuff directly?

I guess that's nice, but presumably, if someone can figure out how the text is stored in the ROM to the extent that a new English script can be inserted, it should be easy enough to extract the script as-is.

Do what Thartan said he's going to do in a different thread, use a Linux distro... It's all free!
Hoo boy.  Linux is probably even worse with updates than Windows is.

I was having a bit of trouble with Windows Update recently too.  I think I used Disk Cleanup to remove leftover Windows Update files, and I used some other command whose name escapes me to verify the system files.  It still took a while, but it did finish eventually.

I suspect it's the .NET updates that are to blame.  As a last-ditch effort you can try uninstalling all versions of .NET.

If you're enthusiastic about reviewing, perhaps you'd be interested in uploading some of the other little patches floating around out there?  I found these a long time ago:

I didn't even know there was a wrecking crew for the SNES.
Aye, it's a fun little game – exclusive to the Japanese "Nintendo Power" distribution service initially. I assumed that it hadn't been translated at this point simply because it was exceptionally difficult to hack.

Main story text:
That leaves only the Menus pending, but that should be easy to get.
You're missing the text from the special stages and the "Good" ending you get from finishing the special stages, aren't you?  The special stages are accessed by finishing some of the regular stages with exceptionally fast times.  One of them is an onigiri that says nothing, so that's easy, at least.

To the PS2 you can add:
 -Berserk: Millennium Falcon Hen Seima Senki no Shō  (already translated  :) , great game)
Is the translation new?  I remember someone looking for help here a long, long time ago.  The patch hasn't been uploaded here; is that just because no one got around to it?

Jamiroquai is cool I guess. Don't know much about them other than that one hit they had years ago.
They're one of the most grossly underrated and underappreciated bands in recent history.  I recommend picking up a best-of compilation or two.  They've got a lot of really good hits.

"Virtual Insanity" was probably the hit you're thinking of.  That one exploded for some reason when it came out -- but it isn't anywhere near their best song.
I really, really like "Corner of the Earth", but then I saw the video and it was all really creepy Native American cultural exploitation, which kind of taints it – much like "Canned Heat" will now forever be associated with Napoleon Dynamite (as opposed to Elite Beat Agents, as it would have been in a perfect world).

So Earthbound Zero + 25th is the way to go and not the Mother 1+2 GBA version?  (I understand the music, at least, is much better in the original.)
