Good localization: Everyone enjoys the game.   Bad localization: People that don't care enjoy the game. People that do care enjoy it less.    But with people actually defending changes like "..

I didn't say it would be my last post, just the last big one. To address your last comment, I would have bought the game regardless of what they did or did not cut. Gameplay is important but so is sto

I disagree. You can argue that it was "just" amplified, and I'll argue that it destroyed the rest of her character. She isn't shy anymore. Shy isn't soft spoken anymore. She's just this muscle packed

Sorry, Yoshi.

 

That alternate finish line will not cut itself.

 

And Matt. Sonic is 15, isn't he? And wears that hairdo kids have these days... Not sure I'd vote for him...

He'd probably be booted out for his chili dog taxes.

So everyone needs to keep in mind that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Meaning localizations for say, Nintendo games will have to appeal to EVERYONE in their target audience, which will always include kids for example. NIS titles are typically marketed to adults and older teenagers for another example.

 

Actually basically every major NIS title not actually developed by another company is rated Cero A or All-Ages.

 

Of the games they publish from other people, I think Criminal Girls is one of the first and only times they really released a game designed to appeal specifically to older audiences.

 

Unless you meant NISA instead of NIS since they have a tendency of working with Compile Heart which... changes things.

Creative writing huh? So they're getting college students. I took that class, they should hire me.

Hell, I should apply for that. English major with a minor in Creative Writing right here.

 

Granted I still have to finish school and get my internship done, but still...

So does that means you're boycotting Dragon Quest from now on?

 

It's pun-apalooza these days after all, with no signs of stopping either.

Its less boycotting the series and just moving on other RPGs with better writing and more balanced humor.

 

I love DQ but when I see jokes this unfunny and personally kinda grating it gets to where I stop having fun with the games.

It seems that's the case.

Give me puns!

Yup.

 

Only time I can think of where I don't like DQ puns are in IX. Otherwise I don't mind them.

I liked them in DQIX too, though I can say they were a bit overboard.

You just didn't like DQIX in general, the puns didn't help :P

But for me, they add flavor, charm, to the localizations.

I'd rather see puns, accents, etc. than going back to the Dragon Warrior days, honestly.

I'd fill the whole game with puns.

 

God Bless You!

You were my first thought.  APPLY!

To be fair, you were a little sour on the entire DQIX experience if I recall.

I guess that you could say DQIX gave him lemons, and he didn't make lemonade!

The puns being unfunny is subjective. I happen to like them so I don't mind, but I can see why they'd annoy someone who doesn't like them. It was pretty much the same stance I took when it came to the re-writes for Fates. I found them funny, others did not.

And you guys thought I didn't like IX? No, no, no...I LOATHE it.
