I remember that I bought 3 of them when I was a kid (52 games for the price of one? I'd be stupid not to buy it), but each one was defective. I didn't try a 4th time...

Action 52 cost $199 when it was released in 1991 so I highly doubt this. You probably had more generic Chinese multi-carts.

I thought stamps were popular in Japan because they send 100+ new years cards so they just stamp their name or whatever as opposed to signing each one.

If you guys think 53 Stations is hard then you should check out Ikki.

Ikki stands out in GCCX history for one reason, it was so hard that not even the ADs could beat it.

It's finally happened guys. Next week's episode is apparently Battletoads. I really hope you guys choose to sub this when a good version becomes available.

Thanks guys! Poor Gutcruncher.

Was there a recap episode of the live Quest of Ki challenge like there was for lemmings? I can't remember.

DaMangoSentinel posted:

It wasn't one done by the SA team, but I just watched the Ultra Seven episode, and I loved it, especially the scene transition with Arino looking super stoic as he zooms towards the screen, flexing. It never failed to make me lose it.

I'm lacking in gif creating talent (and programs), but if some kind soul would like to make that scene transition into a gif that could be used as an avatar on the forums, I would be happy forever. Or at least until the next episode is up.

I figured I should start watching this show after seeing a few people excited for the Battletoads episode on Twitter, so while looking through the OP I see that YO NOID is on here. Is this is Japanese version which has 100% less Domino's or did they decide to play the US version for novelty? Either way, I REALLY want to see that episode subbed, even if I have to do it myself (the translation, anyway).

It is the Japanese version.

There are those that thought this day would never come. What have they to say now?

I hope they don't suddenly pick up the series again and start translating episodes that have been done by SA.

What does zarigani mean if anything? The J.J. & Jeff episodes features a comedy duo called America Zarigani and then there is our master translator too.

I really do hope TV-Nihon pushes out episode 12 within a reasonable time-frame as that's a personal favorite of mine.

To quote myself from the previous thread:

That episode is right up there for me too. Season 3 was one of the best seasons of the show all told.

The people commenting on that news story are so loving deluded. Someone should really post there and tell them what's up but I suppose if they are reading KOTAK they are beyond help already.

e: Another piece of good news. I found that amazing Brian Ashcraft article where he shared this pearl of wisdom.

No. It is everything.

Yeah, there's some stupid poo poo written on Kotaku (why's it because called Kotak?) but I guess since I don't really read many of the articles and just use it as a general game news site it's decent enough to get me the information with a clean layout.

You are the only person on the internet who thinks that gawker sites are well designed.

Yeah, those are surprisingly fun to watch and Angelique Trois gave us one of the series' most memorable lines (to me at least).



Can someone explain what this insult actually means? It's popped up a few times and I'm not 100% sure.

Mister Chief

I still cannot believe they haven't done Metal Gear. It seems really weird since they have done plenty of Konami games, Kojima was interviewed for the show, the game has been in the opening credits for years and the it would be perfect for the show.

Yeah, Sasano was the main whiteboard guy. Still, others have made detailed dioramas and character profile cards so there is that.

One of my all time favourite GCCX moments was the strategy meeting for how to perform the triangle jump during the Super Mario Bros 2 challenge.

Speaking as someone who owns seven Densha de Go games (seriously) I can assure you that it is not an episode on track for release.

I see what you did there. I'm going to guess Paris-Dakar Rally Special and The Night of the Sickle Weasels are both currently in the works.

Plus video games are even more expensive in Japan and Arino was probably a struggling comedian at the time.

He was a punk rocker.

Ah that's right. That's why I don't remember any repeats -- they began going in chronological order starting from episode 12, which is the oldest episode I've translated so far. Whoops, upcoming release spoiler.

I can't wait to see Arino try and Beat that game.

Okay, it's official. This episode is cursed. Cursed, cursed, cursed.

I just realized that a patch I made last night to fix some broken timing wound up breaking validated lines earlier in the video. Since no one has a copy yet I'm yanking and resetting things.

That's exactly the point. Perversions are often played up for comedic effect in Japanese comedy.

Oh god. Exactly how badly did they anime the game up for Japan?

Graphics wise it looked identical to the North American version. They didn't give everyone anime eyes and bushy eyebrows unfortunately.
