Excellent OP! I'm looking forward to collaborating in new memories.

Transmitting broadcast.

EDIT: Going through the nice list Stranger put up I see Super Mario World was already on third(?) season. I didn't know it was so early on the show, considering it's a high profile game and all. Would love to see it translated some day. Sadly, the turnout of the challenge has been spoiled again and again in various episodes. If anyone's seen it, is there anything otherwise relevant in it? I try to avoid watching GCCX without subs because my Japanese is subpar.

Speaking of medleys, here's a up-beat medley of 53 Stations of Tokaido. Not sure if it was posted in the last thread.

The melody is actually pretty good. One thing I love about Nintendo-era gaming is the music. Restrictions in both sound chips and memory forced sound engineers and composers to get really creative.

Please tell me there's co-op segment in the Battletoads episode. I love Arino and some poor assistant trying their hardest to work together in GCCX only ultimately to fail due to Arino's antics. Reminds me of scrolling beat'em'ups and other games where powerups are limited and that rear end in a top hat you're playing with keeps hogging all the turkeys and pizzas when you're the one actually in need. Battletoads is just perfect for co-op failure.

I think Battletoads episode's possibility to be translated soonish was discussed a few pages ago. The result was that there's a whole bunch of episodes already under work so it's definitely not going to be on priority list.

Righto. I just thought it was some kind of "haha you need to start all over again" message, considering the player just shuts off the console then. And since the player goes through with it to show everyone I thought it was somehow relevant. But having to start all over again is harsh enough without rubbing it in, I guess.

All you guys wanting to see Battletoads because it is this essential american hard-to-beat NES game, the same feeling I as a european for Flashback and Another World, two games that I grew up with and played a ton that are sorta distinct and all european-like.

Battletoads is as essential nail-your-balls-to-the-wall-hard NES game even in Europe, especially considering its creator Rare Ltd. is based in UK. Not sure how widely sold it was but I never, ever found Battletoads when I tried to buy it or even rent it. Luckily I had the priviledge of friending a kid who owned the game and could play Battletoads loads. I never passed through that ice stage which I think I only ever reached once.

All things considered I have to say Flashback was probably my favorite childhood game. An adventure through multiple locales and even a barebones city hub with a working metro system was mindblowing for a console kid.

Crazy western games, I tell ya!

(Western) PC games in general aren't that hot in Japan. When I was in Japan, any given 'otaku' software store in Akihabara there would be a whole floor of porn games with a tiny shelf and a sale bin for Western games. There you could pick up Diablo 2 for 30 bucks, Total War collection for 110 bucks or even Mount & Blade for 60 bucks!

It's obvious from retail prices alone that PC games really don't have much value in there, be it due to uppity salespeople or just plain lack of demand.

You see the occasional Japanese Western game enthusiast on internet but that's a given, considering how many people there are in Japan. I think Xbox is healthy in Japan only due to pandering to the otaku culture with Idolmaster games and whatnot...

Western console games, on the other hand, seemed to enjoy a familiar spot on store shelves. Where in our stores we would have Madden, NHL, Modern Warfare next to a Atlus RPG, in Japan it would obviously be vice versa.

Every time it goes "19** in games" I get disappointed that it doesn't do any C64 games. Did the C64 sell in japan at all? I never had a nintendo, until SNES.

C64 was a massive flop due to so much local competition. MSX especially shadowed over it.

There were actually a lot of home computer systems in Japan at the time C64 was conquering the world elsewhere. There was a segment for old, forgotten consoles and other hardware in GCCX but I forget which episode, that showed some early consoles on par with original Atari.

Okay, there's a lot going on today so keep up.

Top of the list is something new for the SA Team. It's our first DVD bonus episode: Bomberman. Featuring the greatest player in GCCX history, a huge cast, and multiple twist endings.

Bringing this challenge to you is the woman, the legend, the person behind the shocking announcement at the end of this post, zari-gani!

Item number two: multiupload is still not working correctly so I'm trying something new. I uploaded the video to DepositFiles to give people an easy option for access to it but I also created a torrent. The torrent contains the subtitles as well as the video. This is the first time I've done this so I'm not certain how well it's going to work but I thought it was worth a shot.

Direct Download - http://depositfiles.com/files/fc6drwe1n
Torrent - http://www.nyaa.eu/?page=torrentinfo&tid=281310

Third and finally, as of today 50% of Game Center CX is translated. It's not all finished and ready for public consumption but there are translations for half of everything Game Center CX.


Most of season 9 and the early parts of season 10 exist in HD, but I haven't been able to find many others that are saved at an extremely high resolution.

So I just read this entire thread through and I still didn't find the Bomberman episodes linked.

Depositfiles links to Game Center CX NC7 - Mario Kart.avi. It's also slow as molasses at the moment, 110 b/s. Nyaa.eu's database seems to be down as well so I can't torrent it either.

Edit: Apparently the torrent site works now. Still, Depositfiles links to Mario Kart.

This torrent thing is working really well.



Is there a plan to compile a megatorrent with all the translated episodes? It would cause some additional work, since you'd have to create a new .torrent every time an episode is published, and the seeders would have to move as well for it to keep going.

I'm pretty sure you can always update a torrent. Any new episodes could just be added to the megatorrent. I'm not sure how this technically works, though.

The new episode was certainly a surprise. Without watching it, I bet there's a good reason it was chosen from the least translated 15th season, especially as probably one of the most requested episode (Battletoads) is also there.

But really, the most fun episodes to me have always been games I've never either played or never heard of. Shadow Lands, Goemon, Hokkaido Murders, Legend of the Wizard, Hanamaru... it's all great stuff.

So lately I've got the worst itch for NES era gaming so I wanted to ask you guys how you play your games. Some of you have mentioned you've ordered online some games Arino has faced and I'd like to get into them as well. Specifically I'd like to buy a NES/Famicom because emulators ironically can't emulate that pristine KACHO feel to gaming.

I've been researching online and apparently NES is pisseasy to make region free. However, a regular western NES (I'm European btw) uses a different form of cartridges from the Famicom so I don't think that will by itself enable me to play Famicom goodness.

Apparently AV Famicom, the grey toploader model, is a good alternative, if you can get your hands on a Japanese version with somewhat modern (read: not RF) video/audio input. Anyone have any experience on that? Is there some alternative like SupaBoy, the handheld SNES that can be plugged into a modern TV set?

One features the English narration, and the other contains the full Japanese language with English subtitles.

Here's hoping it's just the original DVD episodes left undoctored apart from subtitles. Even if it isn't, this is must buy. I really want to show my appreciation for the show and pushing moolah their way is the best way to do it.

TheDingo posted:

It isn't clear if the episodes will be edited down to just the gameplay or not (like Kotak).

It's likely they are just the challenge segments, as both DVD versions and the copies GCCX's producers try to sell internationally as Retro Game Master are exactly that.

Bocc Kob posted:

Why even bother making DVDs if you don't put all the stuff on them?

Is it a cost thing or do they figure most fans of the show record every episode and this is more of a collectible to support the show?

vvvv I think licensing issues is one part of the problem. This was discussed in the old GCCX thread so maybe someone has a more ready answer to this question.

PC gaming is _way_ underpresented in Japan. Most every software store there has this tiny segment of shelf space dedicated to PC games that are way overpriced. Or how does 13.000 yen (~130 bucks) for complete Total War series sound like in age of Steam? Needless to say, every store I went to had the same case, with about 80% of space reserved for date simulators, pornographic or not.

I know it's nitpicking, but it's kind of confusing when some of the torrent releases are in appropriate season folders and some are not. Recent Megaman was not. It's no big deal to check what season the episode is in but it's the principle, drat it. Unified torrent folder policies will help in the longer run when new releases find their way easily into predefined default season format folders.

Ditto for PS3 Media Server. Newest version streams pretty much anything to PS3 and if it doesn't, there's transcoded versions available through the media server. Of course, you'll need a network between your PC and PS3 for media server use.

Legacy of the Wizard is definitely worth it. I'm currently playing the Famicom version and partially cheesing through with a walkthrough and it still manages to bust my chops. Some of the level design is malicious trolling and it's possible to get stuck. Luckily it's usually just a 5 minutes trip from the surface back to where you failed. The game world is huge anyways.
