For whatever reason, the Japanese version of the game uses English for all the dialogue in the "anime" scenes (as Arino calls them). The Japanese translations are included in the manual and she pops in to explain the meaning of the phrases. It's not a full mini-corner, but a quick cameo.

I presume this means her segment was popular, and she might become a regular to explain English phrases.

As to WHY the game is designed like this, I'm not sure. There's not a lot of dialogue, so translating it wouldn't be difficult to do.

Arino can also do a decent enough job of reading English text but he doesn't know the meaning of most of the words, and specific English idioms (which is most of the dialogue) are lost on him.

To the guy that I told I would translate Bomberman; I've made a little progress on it but it'll still be a little while. desu my porn addiction and adhd have been taking up 90% of my days lately so it's taking me longer than I thought it would but it's being done.

also I've been extremely lazy as I translate it so os: means on screen which means you'll be adding subs and timing those yourself. the actual CC are timed really well though so a lot of the dialogue without on-screen text you won't really have to do anything.

>> No.9279069

she's pretty, but she doesn't even have her goofy constantly laughing charm doing this shitty content she scripted her self. (her one and only redeeming quality in the english corner)

it's cute that she was lighting herself from below making her look all fucked up and ugly though. so points for that.

GGCX really wishes I knew Japanese. When I first saw the show, I saw it as a game challenge show. Thus I foolishly skipped all the trip segments and side content. Effectively I treated it like a youtube let's play. Then I realized it's a Vatriety show, more about the history of gaming than anything, and really only half the run time is game content. Thus the typical approach is to pick and choose eps for games they like and treat them in isolation. Seeing new eps in order as they come out is really how you're supposed to experience the show. The side corners are just as important as anything else, and they build over a season. Seeing game profiles of the game library unfold slowly throughout the years is interesting.

They're nearly done with SFC 1995, leaving only the much more scant post 95 releases.

He has clearly given up on life. I'm sure being 55 and still playing video games for a living is not the fulfilling career he dreamed of.

He's only 50 and a gen-xer. Though Japan has a harsh work culture, and that applies to entertainers as well. That means long hours and work work work, with little time for family. Even GCCX is a side-content, and it can easily result in 12-13 hour filming sessions.

I heard that there's hints of some kind of health problems behind the scenes, and possible alcoholism.

Shame they did the arcade game which is the weakest of the TMNT titles. It's an okay but noting special home port of an okay arcade game, but every game in the series is better.


The perfect insanely hard nonsense game that's unfair. A game from my childhood that I never beat.

So this means a manga based game from a series they've never done before. Sadly, that does not narrow it down as there's hundreds.

No, it means a game based on a manga. Nothing about them not having done it before. "Manga original" is an awful translation of 漫画原作, it should be "based on a manga".

Considering they said "manga" and not "anime", I'm thinking maybe Golgo 13 II.

In contrast, I'm an optimist. This is an AI translation entirely working from just voice instead of the much more easy to translate text.

I remember Retsupurae mocking it like 8 years ago. That's how I know about it.

There was a thread a few months ago asking what game would be the most interesting to challenge for the show, and the conesnsus was Lifeline PS2.

It's one of those quirky experimental games no one has ever tried to replicate. It also uses English commands with a Japanese accent, meaning it will be easier for Arino-san to play it.

Translation was performed using the ‘large’ dataset rather than the english sets and CUDA was used to expedite translation.

>> No.9283697

Japan doesn't use pronouns in sentences, thus when you translate you have to guess. It defaults to male.

This is actually insanely impressive since it's not translating from text, but vocals. I pretty much already understand 50% of the game challenge dialogue in the show without any translation, with at least some translation it all comes in even if I know it's full of mistakes.

The fact it is as accurate as it is, and is simply going to get better overt time.

Shocked that they're adding F-Zero X to the DVD box when there's other more interesitng titles out there they could have added. It's the one time I saw Arino completely bomb a game and make zero headway. Understanble since he doesn't get momentum physics in games.
