    Sure, if by "particular character" you mean they mostly suck. The launch of most consoles is riddled with garbage and mediocrity. I think that's maybe not so much true if you go as far back as SNES, but it's pretty true of PS2-PS4 at least.

    Thank you for that GLORIOUS intro music this time.

    So I made my call on which version of Yo-Kai Watch 2 to buy thanks to the last Direct when they revealed that one of the Fleshy Souls-exclusive Yo-Kai was called "Toadal Dude". A pun that hideous does not deserve my money. To that end, what's the worst (or best) pun you've seen in a RPG or game in general?

  • I seem to remember that someone on the RPGamer Staff worked on the original translation of DQVII. Can you get them to shed some light on how that whole process worked, and why it turned out how it did?

    I can't speak for Doug, but from what I've heard from him about the original it was that the original translation came in to the localization team with no context as to which scenes were in what order. I think there were also multiple teams collaborating on the project and that communication was...messy. This could all be wrong, but I vaguely recall hearing something like this.

    best yo-kai watch pun: cheeksqueek. it's literally a farting butt yo-kai.
    i'm a big fan of the two beetle yo-kai though.

    Based on our chat with Mr. Baker about how Yo-Kai Watch could be localized, I wonder how many puns we miss out on in the series simply because it's stuff that is untranslatable. Thankfully based on my time so far with the first game there are PLENTY of awesome puns. It's puntastic even.

    If baker is going to be on I would really like to hear him talk about the famicom disc system. I know I've asked that before, but he's never got around to talking about it.

    On a side note, I just saw that persona 5 is nearly 100 dollars in Japan. Fallout 4 was 84. Games are much more expensive there.
