Oh yeah, and the same-sex marriage bill passed in the House of Commons. Suck on that, homophobes!

YES! Lesbians. :)

Generally speaking (not just audio,) what other reasons make you hate the domestic version of Mawaru, Unknownfile? I'm interested since I don't want to grab a sucky localized version.
Reasons why Wario Ware Twisted is retarded by unknownfile at 2:22 PM EDT on June 30, 2005

Well, I'm a purist. When the ROM came out, I got the RS crack. Within minutes of patching, I was addicted.

A few months later, when the US version came out, I bought it to try it out and was horrified at how mangled the text had become. That, and Nintendo itself added an intro hack (you know, one of those demos that warez groups add onto their releases) except this time, it didn't advertise who dumped the game, when it was released, or even who they were greeting. What appeared on the screen, however, was this:



Yes, Nintendo, waste 10 seconds of my time with a screen that I see every time I turn on my DS anyway.

MAIN MENU AS FOLLOWS

JAPANESE VERSION

Zukan - Game - Kachyakoron (sound effect?) - Option

Zukan = dictionary, encyclopedia, etc.

ENGLISH VERSION

Spindex (one of many shitty puns) - Story - Souvenirs - Options

Below is a list of changes I have found so far.

In Souvenirs, select the 3rd option from the left. In the Japanese version, it was originally some sort of thing where you shook out a stick. On the end of the stick was a color, and it would tell your fortune. I guess this is a religious thing in Asia. Oh yes, and it's much more interesting than a fortune cookie, with superstitious sayings.

Puns were added to Kochira Mona Pizza (now called "Mona Pizza"), or were they there in the first place? UNLIKELY. The description of the record in Souvenirs was also changed.

The original Famicom insides for Nine-Volt's stage were crappified to match the NES coloring. The gnomes were replaced with these ugly things that look much like an ugly pixel mess.

Descriptions of the Famicom games in the English version are now editorial comments made by Wario.

The Wario Hockey souvenir was changed to Unfair Hockey. The description was also changed to a shorter sentence with a bad pun in it (as usual).

The Table Hockey Forever souvenir was changed to Eternal Wario Hockey. Um.. don't you mean "Eternal Unfair Hockey" since you changed it?

Long Jump becomes Divider Conquer, and Hitsuji ga Ippai (A Lot of Sheep) becomes Staying Asheep.

Sewing Machine Club becomes Sew Hard. I'd say that ain't a bad title. </sarcasm>

Mr. Home Run becomes Batting Practice.

Nekoroido (a Japanese pun, Neko = Cat), I was expecting, was going to be changed to Catroid. But noooooooooooooooo, they changed it to "Mewtroid".

The Japanese cartridge looks cooler than the US one (especially the handwriting. I love that handwriting).

Pig Whistle became Oinker.

So, Koji, is that enough reasons for you to stay away? But, if you're not a purist, than you can go right ahead and eat this pile of shit.

Heh, I'd consider myself a purist, except most of your translation complains is what happens every time with every single game released. Too bad about the sucky puns, though. Mewtroid I actually find it a lot better than Catroid (though Nekoroid is unbeatable.) The traditional Japanese stuff replaced do turn me off, as does the Famicom-to-NES change. The music is the worst part, I have to admit, amidst all. The only reason I have for getting the domestic release is that I actually want to understand what I read, which I won't if I get the Japanese version, since I sadly can't read Japanese (when in hell am I going to take those lessons?) Argh, tough choice.

Oh, yeah. Thanks for your thorough report. :) Sometimes I wish there was some site with that kind of info on localized games. Or is there one?

Not yet, or maybe there could be one at TMK, but whatever.

Oh and happy Canada Day.

FOUND ANOTHER DIFFERENCE

In one of the microgames, Buddha was replaced with a hillbilly farmer type guy. I think that was in Kat and Ana's stage.
Ys 3 by unknownfile at 6:03 AM EDT on July 1, 2005
Well, I've had this lying around for some time now, so I have finally decided to release it.

Here's the Minipsf2 repack (by me!) of Ys 3, ripped by Squaresoft72 some while back.

Get it here (it's uploading right now)
by unknownfile at 6:45 AM EDT on July 1, 2005
While we're on the subject of Ys...

I made a batchfile this morn that converts the 12.1 MB Ys 4 PSF2 set to the 10.6 MB Ys 4 Minipsf2 set.

Voila.
by hcs at 7:46 AM EDT on July 1, 2005
Cool. Just so you know, I have about 30 MB left, so be careful.
