Sup’ everyone. Decided to start off the year with some Sengoku Turb, a game I’ve been itching to replay since I got a physical copy a couple months ago on the cheap. I wasted some time trying to get into the iso itself with no luck, so I have to diagnose just what I’m doing wrong still. Anyway, it’s a simply action game taking place in some fictional galaxy. Just a heads up that the game has a particularly lax writing style. Some character’s are just max chill at all times, and that will show up in the writing.
Anyway, anyway, anyway… I thought I’d do a basic write-up of the prologue+the first chapter(the latter is mostly seen in this clip but use your imagination for the prologue until I can link to something better), so here goes:
Hi there! This is just a quick hello to before closing the book on 2016.
I wish I had more time atm to do a proper reflection, but so far nothing major has particularly happened, except I’ve wrapped up a first-draft translation of an old friend to the blog, The Adventures of Robin Lloyd! Esper saw me make a few tweets in the game earlier this month as I finished translating an old trashy dump I made years ago and he surprised me with proper insertable text dumps of his own, so starting next year I will most likely be rewriting that bad boy from scratch before we can dig out the menus/UI text and test play the little sucker.
Someone posted on RHDN that they are looking for a translator for the itty bitty AC1: Cardcaptor Sakura on PSX so cross your fingers for me~♡
Watching the progression of the text insertion like this must be what it’s like for momfolks to see sonograms or whatever those things are called. On top of the weeks he’s been looking into the vwf and text reinsertion for Double Cast on and off, yesterday he really toughed it out in a battle of good and evil.
‘Sup, wassup, it’s pushing 5 A.M. here. I super hate sleeping through the night on my weekends, as that’s the best time for me to work out of the entire week, but here we are. Anyhow, I spend a chunk of the afternoon chattin’ it up with Esper. After we talked about how freaky it is that there are, like, 120 more episodes of Naruto than there are the Simpson’s, we threw some updates at one another.
Erasing my little ditty of excitement for Shiei no Sona Nyl, as I sounded like a super drunk person (which I wasn’t. I only drink like once a year and just this last Thursday I played to win. Any other times you see me write like an idiot it’s just because I’m an idiot.<3) For now, I’m simply going to edit my last update into a new one so I’m not wasting space.
So, first off, sorry for falling off of the face of the earth again. I’ll spare everyone the IRL hootie-blah, but some very barebones project updates under the cut!
Just needed to throw up an update. My weekend was kind of a waste as far as clearing my to-do list, so maybe I’m just overwhelming myself. I wish I was faster at everything in life. It’s kind of depressing sometimes how you can just churn away at stuff and not make a dent. Anyway, enough with that.
Here’s some lyrics to the main theme from the first OreShika game, which as everyone knows, wasn’t released west. However, a mix of this song (“Hana, Meguru”) is used in the second game in a marching sequence you can view after clearing the main storyline. As someone who wasn’t familiar with the song beforehand, I thought it was very pretty in the march and finding it online in full was very delightful a discovery too.
(quick confession: despite being a fan of Shoji Masuda in other places like Linda and AbaPri, I only bought Bloodlines because I thought Abe No Seimei was kinda hot.)
