Don't want to be all "HEY WHEN THIS GON BE TRANSLATED", but how high is Ocarina Of Time on the priority list? I'd really like to see that one.

Have you seen the Link to the Past episode? It's been mentioned that Ocarina of Time is pretty dull since, thanks to editing hours of footage down into 30 minutes (to fit the arcade segments and other segments plus introducing the game and theme song) they don't exactly show Arino 'wrestling' with puzzles or bosses as you would often seen in a shorter game like Golgo 13.


It's a good game, but just warning you, thanks to how they have to edit it, it's a dull episode to watch.

I don't want to bog things down with moving through each episode and saying, "Not on the list."

Everything after episode 106 has a few strikes against it that make getting a translation slower. There's issues of familiarity and availability (though we've good good masters of everything now) that just naturally push them down the list. They'll be done eventually but everyone has other priorities first.

FWIW, I think seasons 14 and 15 are awesome and the only weak episodes in the bunch are Ocarina of Time and F-Zero. AD Takahashi really knows how to pick an awesome game for the show...

Maybe you could mention that the 'serious' translation movement has only been going on for... what, little over half a year now? We've gotten on average a new episode per week at that rate. There's just a huge log of episodes to go through.

You guys have done a good job of mixing it up with some recognizable stuff with obscure stuff that still manages to be interesting to watch (case in point, the two quiz games).

Naw, sorry but I agree that it's really nothing like Top Gear. If I'd seen the banner ad first I wouldn't have checked the last thread either. I figured it was like some kinda Consolevania thing, where they showcase games and give presentations on them and mess about. Instead it's a dude playing old games and sucking, and giggling about it while the whole crew joins in. And tons of nostalgia for being a little kid right down to an arts and crafts section.

Also while I like to watch TG now and then, Clarkson is a smug right-wing jackass. Arino is the most inoffensive dude to ever host a show (unless you're fat).

But they do showcase games. They give small breaks between the challenge telling about games on the same system. They also show off a lot of arcade games. And there's a lot more segments for showing off games like the Game and Watch segment, or Aces of Hardware. That is literally them showcasing games and presentations on them and messing about with them. It's just not the main purpose of the show, but it's there.

If anything, GCCX is just Top Gear with lovable, endearing characters.

I suppose I should take the opportunity to talk about what's going on behind the scenes. There's an episode that's nearly finished with the translation that's a long requested one. There's three more episodes that I know positively are being worked on.

We're probably still another week or so away from our next release just because things tend to get thrown into chaos between holidays and the new year but there's more episodes coming. I want 2012 to be the year that GCCX is fully translated (and that's the line that made everyone else on the SA Team scream in horror from the thought of all that work )

You don't get to take that back. That means you have to do all the live challenges.

Serious question, why do people prefer Multiupload to torrents?

Sometimes their internet connection is faster through DD than torrents.


Sometimes they live on leased places where they don't want to risk torrents, even for uncopyrighted stuff. (See, apartments, dorms, school computers)

Sometimes torrents just plain don't work in general, due to their ISP or geographical region.

Import GCCX ANC2 if you thinking about getting it. You won't regret it. Almost all the games are playable with no Japanese. The 2 detective games can be done with the FAQ at GameFaqs and Guadia Quest Saga is easy if you are good at the first one. Even if it comes to NA, the NA version won't have Arino's voice. I am going to import the first game, even though I already own the NA version. The english voice actor is horrible and I would rather hear Arino's voice when playing the first game.

Are DS games region free on the 3DS? I know DS games are region free on their own system but the 3DS is region locked inregards to the marketplace and games.

I'd like to point out that while Demon's and Dark Souls are things that aren't likely to happen for a long while, those games are considered to be spiritual successors to the King's Field series of games, which debuted in 1994. So while PS1 challenges aren't the most common things in the world, it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility that the King's Field series could show up on the show eventually. It helps that King's Field was much more popular in Japan than in the US.

In all honesty, that would make a fairly good episode. Everything story related might fit in 5-10 minutes and Kings Field is known to be exceptionally challenging. I hope an AD makes a model or map of a level too. Is there a good way to suggest games to them? Could someone mention kings field on the twitter?

shrgnatlas, or someone else that could answer this for me. Are we going to have the rebroadcast on the stream this weekend?

When you say the broadcast is on Sunday midnight at EST, does that mean at Sunday, 11:59 PM EST, we should get ready for the rebroadcast? (because you could take it to also mean 12:01 AM on sunday 'morning')

Isn't the A Link to the Past challenge pretty similar? Even though OoT got two parts, I can't imagine it being different to how they edited LttP.


They basically show about 20-40 seconds worth of each of the dungeons, part of each boss fight and show some ganon stuff, along with the random overworld stuff here and there

There would still be reasons for a subbing project, even though you probably wouldn't need it to be subbed.

I just feel that Americans are more hostile with copyright laws, as in japanese seem to be pretty neutral/silent about sansubbing projects.

I wonder if there exists some Japanese forum like us, where they're currently translating Seinfeld or something into Japanese.

Well, aside from Jerry's voice, I think they actually did a decent job with the dub. Of course, it's got to be pretty difficult to translate such a jargon heavy show into another language, so I imagine some of those scripts end up pretty different.

Now we need someone to start translating My Neighbor Seinfeld, and have people watch it and remark its a completely different show than Seinfeld itself.

It's been a little while so I thought I'd fill people in on what's coming up. Three episodes you're already aware of from what's been posted in the thread. Another episode in the translation process is a long awaited one that's one of the show's best (and one of my favorite old games, too). We've got something kind of funky coming that I'm sure none of you could predict (it's a first in a lot of different ways). And beyond that is something that even I don't have the details on so I don't even want to hint at it.

There's a deluge building right now. Get to higher ground.

So, we've got about a 5 episode deluge? The kind of deluge that happens only once a year?

We're not finished. This has only just begun!


Quiz episodes were still tougher on the timing side of things given the sheer number of overlays and how often they switch but this was much worse than a normal episode. I can see the translation challenges; the interview subjects are not well suited for television interviews.

Just thinking on it now, It's amazing how much translation you guys have done.

It's 100 episodes yes, but that's also nearly an hour each. Most anime actually only have about 18 minutes or less you need to translate.


So you guys have done the same amount of work as it has probably taken to translate over half of the 552 currently existing One Piece episodes. Or all this translation effort is the equivalent of translating ten entire different season/series of an 24 episode anime/tv show.

Amazing.

Not in the slightest. Besides being available for a long time (I know I saw several of the box sets on store shelves in Japan) the back market on them seems pretty typical for DVD's. I hadn't purchased any GCCX DVD's until about two years ago


The GCCX in the USA box set is almost certainly not going to leave Japan and there won't be any subtitle of the new material from us any time soon.
