Re: Lunar memes

Ahahahaha good old MasterCard commercials... Can you post the other old ones if you credit the other users? Absolutely! Just had to dig up some of these... Just to reiterate, I did do the graphics for all of these (images are pulled from my collection of screenshots and novel/manga/artbook scans), ...

Re: SSST probably going away soon

>.> Both the reasons why I dislike Apple/iOS and why I dislike mobile as a gaming platform are coming together here... It's kind of unsurprising, though, that there was no interest in updating SSST so that it could work with the 64-bit update. It's just... the series since Lunar: Legend has kind of ...

Re: What gaming cables do you use?

When you say component cables, do you mean composite cables? Component cables have 5 plugs (Red, White, Red (again), green, and blue). Composite cables are the red, white, and yellow cables. Ah yes, I meant composite cables (corrected my earlier post). I'm not sure off-hand what my PS2 uses -- coul...

It's been a while but I realize I have more to say/reply on this! Especially since we're getting knee-deep into dialect issues. One of the articles we looked at was this one by Vershawn Ashanti Young, a composition and rhetoric scholar who chose to write in AAVE (or as he prefers, Black English) to ...

Hm, bit of background, my father is a major WW2 history buff (Churchill's multi-volume "The Second World War" is one of the first things he read outside of school), both of us have a deep love of history (though in different areas), and we both appreciate good war movies -- think being abl...

Eid Mubarak! Today is Eid-ul-Adha, also known as Qurbani Eid or Bakr Eid. It marks the end of the hajj period -- I know just a couple people who went to hajj this year though. KF

Re: Magical School Lunar translation [in progress!]

Yeah, I'm not opposed to appropriate localization - I don't mind if the text drifts away from the literal meaning as long as it keeps the feel. Thanks so much! I suspect I'll be taking advantage of that. :) I'd really love to have you work on it if the timing can work out. I'm working on translatin...

Re: Magical School Lunar translation [in progress!]

So, uh, I'm gonna be honest that I'm not much of a fan of Suppertails66's reasons for the "Unworked Designs" patches (I think he goes overboard with the dislike of the localization efforts, which on the whole I found to be quite good with only a few gripes). But, I'm totally fine with the ...

Welcome to the forums! Glad to see you around (and sorry for the delay in activating your account {--};;). Huh, you replay Eternal Blue for the Sega CD often then?

Re: Frustrated with retro gaming prices....especially regarding the Sega Saturn

Hm, well, I have a lot of love for the Saturn in spite of the paltry support it got in the US. I have a Model 1 US Saturn (literally bought it the month it came out in 1995 -- which is also why I never have or never will buy a system at launch ever again) that still works perfectly fine, and a Japan...

Re: Fastest Game Time

I feel like Lunar: Legend and Silver Star Harmony would be the easiest to do a speedrun of, mostly because of how the difficulty was almost laughably easy for both. (In LL, it was an actual challenge trying to die. And in SSH, during one of battles against Ghaleon where you're supposed to lose, I wa...

Re: Song of the moment

I've been listening to more lo-fi hip-hop (I think that's what the genre is called?) while working lately, and a few weeks back came across this album, Plethoria, by L'Indecis. It's freely available on YouTube, but I also went ahead and bought it (only 4 euros) considering how much I enjoyed it: htt...

But why would they still not say why? If my theory was true they could have still lied and make an excuse about there being more space for new music and stuff since it was done differently.

I think I can name a couple. Vay - This sort of gets in because it was localized by Working Designs, and I played it immediately before ever playing Lunar I (it's also the game that got me into RPGs). Looking back on it now though it's sort of a standard JRPG with the sort of plot you see in dozens ...

I never played either so I have no idea what either one is about. Now that I think of it, would the Arc the Lad series ...
