Sure, just like all those japanese games set in america could have had an english speaker glance at them. But this is literally just the menu screen. I dont know much about AAA video game development, is the guy who puts "New Game" on the menu screen likely to be the same one who is writing the dialogue and story?

It's a SIE game that's hired a bunch of Japanese voice talent and stuff, it will be fine. Who knows what the deal is with the menu but the Japanese audio side sounded positive.

So theres a pretty good chance this is "That one scene from H:ZD" take 2 then? Fair enough.

That seems good, for no reason other than I don't need to rely on software developers to decide what I do and don't want to play in VR, because so far they've been almost completely wrong.

If it's an isolated issue, yeah, but if it's representative of how they localized the entire game that's a huge amount of work and they may not have considering it a problem until outsiders had a look.

Also we're so close to release that the day 1 patch is probably finalized by now and they'd have to really rush to slip an extra localization change into it.

The starting menu is the first loving thing you see and also pretty easy to copy from the thousands of games that came before so it’s a pretty bad sign.

It is, its just a really awkward line read with some bad facial sync, and it was all anybody had to look at for that game for idk how long

We've never been into punk. It was too traditional.


It was from like a week before the game came out and we already had a ton of gameplay footage that looked good. People just lasered in on it because gamers are relentlessly negative and love to watch things crash and burn.

It was a pretty funny cutscene though.

It also came across to me as a sort of condescending "silly tribals don't understand mental illness" treatment, like a time-travelling character smugly dunking on a medieval-level society for not having developed a theory of universal gravitation yet.

The menu is arguably in ďall your baseĒ territory.

And they would have had to read it to, you know, know which option starts the game.

It's some kind of fuckup. I'm going to guess, since they've done an effort on Japanese localisation, that it's some kind of very stupid fuckup where the title screen was left placeholder or just plain hosed and someone is going to be getting their ears boxed over it.

All this attention given to the poor translation yet nobody cares about the most flagrant historical errors, like our protagonist being some noble warrior on a quest for vengeance instead of having to collect the plumber because the pipes in Yamato province got backed up again.

Speaking of HZD news Iíve gotten pretty far. Only have two tallnecks still to climb and two couldrons to complete. I just met the sun king and been asked to find that missing sister. How far along am I?

I just fought, inside one of those couldron cores, a thunderjaw for the first time Iíve ever encountered one. My god that was a fight. I scanned it and studied the log entry, noting its most susceptible to tearing off all its hardware. I knocked two tearblast arrows at once on my heavy bow and immediately got to task breaking off both its disc launchers. With those gone I fired four more tearblasters right at itís drat face, blowing off a ton of weapon and radar gear and armor. I mean it exploded like chicken feathers. It didnít appreciate it. I barely survived it chasing me around the arena, sweeping me with its tail, used up most of my health satchel. But, I finally made way to its very own disc launcher on the ground and picked it up. I literally hear Aloy say, ďitís my turnĒ as I start just loving mag dumping into that thunderjaw. By the time I had emptied the second disc launcher weapon into its flank, it was nearly dead. A few fire arrows to its exposed center was all it took to finish it off. It was awesome.

And then as Iím leaving I get the notification I can override those now. Holy poo poo.

The tweet doesn't point out the translation errors, that's being done by others in the replies. If there's an example of someone trying to create a story around this in order to get attention that can be monetized, no one's posted it in this thread yet.

That's one of two major questlines in the game. The one you're on with Avad and Erend has just a few more parts, Aloy's origin story is much longer and takes you to basically every corner of the map.
