After loving Persona 3 and 4 I obviously bought SMT4 on 3DS. I really couldn't get on with it. Really quite different from each other. That's nice for variety's sake, but I would prefer something more inline with Persona on the Switch, persona-lly.

How I ruined Sega's financial results

Jambo Safari is without a doubt my favourite arcade game. So many memories of that crappy caravan holiday to Ingolmells. I was probably only around 11 at the time, and I remember asking my Dad when was Jambo Safari going to be released on the Dreamcast. It seemed a dead cert, at least in my young eyes. Little did I know it came out all those years later on the Wii. I only found out a few years ago. Still haven't played it as I've heard it's not quite the game I remember it being.

Yasumi Matsuno's RPG Unsung Story is now being finished by a different studio

brigadier

9 months ago

Saw this update last night. This can only be for the best as Playdek completely messed this up. Their original pitch of a Tactics RPG was great but the game quickly morphed into 1v1 online melee fights and something to do with a card game. Needless to say a few heads were scratched. Good to see Little Orbit trying something a little more ambitious too.

Also, I bet if you mention this project to Matsuno he'd be like, "Huh?".

Love it or hate it, it sounds like Mario Kart's Blue Shell is here to stay

brigadier

9 months ago

@Menelaus I'll agree with that. It's actually quite frustrating to be hammered into 10th and on the last few corners of the race get a blue shell instead of something useful. Everyone else is getting stars and bullet bills!

Still love it though. The chaotic nature is what makes it so fun. If Mario Kart was entirely about skill it would be rather stale.

A translator's tale: Inside the building of Final Fantasy 12's Ivalice

brigadier

9 months ago

the slightly archaic way of speaking was absent in Matsuno's first Square game, Final Fantasy Tactics, and was only added in via a later translation for the PSP version War of the Lions.
Which completely ruined the game for me. It was absolute nonsense.

Chinese developer restricts game time for mobile hit labelled "poison"

brigadier

10 months ago

As a resident of China, I can only see this being a good thing. Parents, despite having such a focus on their kids doing well in school, aren't very strict at all. They leave discipline and manners to the teachers. Education is crazily important and you wouldn't believe what these kids have to go through in order to actually achieve something. You may say "let kids do what they want", but getting addicted to a game here can potentially destroy your future, and that's being serious. It's a fault of the education system/huge amounts of competition for school placements, not the actual games themselves though.

This game is absolutely huge here and you can look around any busy area to see kids, adults alike all playing it. Kids are deprived of entertainment and games. The middle school I work at, the kids begin study at 7 in the morning and finish at 22:30. Instead of going home for the weekend, they attend extracurricular classes. The deprivation of things like games makes it very easy for them to be addicted when exposed. In fact, for my school I wanted to do a lunch time club where the kids come and play Mario Kart. The kids actually refused, knowing they wouldn't be able to concentrate in class afterwards.

I'm not sure what point I was trying to make, but yeah.

Disgaea 5 is a video game drunk on itself

brigadier

11 months ago

I was lucky enough to get this for a review. It was my first Disgaea game and I really enjoyed it even though I had literally no idea what was happening most of time just because of how mental it is. Those unsure about getting it, you can easily get your money's worth by playing the 40-odd hour story line, or 100's hours post game material (something I didn't touch, but can easily see the potential).

Persona 5's translation is a black mark on a brilliant game

brigadier

11 months ago

All I will say is, you can't please everyone. If you translate languages literally they often don't make any sense (as a Chinese Mandarin learner, I can vouch for that). If you put your own spin on it then people get annoyed that meanings might be changed.

Anyways, while I've not played Persona 5 yet (sadly), it's been a long, long time since I played a JRPG where I thought there was a bad translation. Sure, I might not be getting the exacted nuanced version of the original writers but I still enjoyed it.

While it's possible to pull a Harry Redknapp and push out your eleven favourite players in a 4-4-1-1 each fixture,
That's exactly how I managed to get Dover Athletic (in '09) and Truro City ('10) to win the premiership and Champions League. Although it was a 4-3-3 and cost hundreds of hours of my life.
