Riots have settled down. I'm glad they've got this under control now.

Listening to:

I have played it for a couple of minutes and although I thought it was much better than the 3D-glasses at the cinema, it was kinda difficult to see clearly. If you tilted your DS just a little bit the screen already became blurry.

I do wonder what they saw from the 3D gimmick. Was it really that good for them?

It's a good thing you turn it off I suppose, but then again... what are you paying those 250 euros for?

A new handheld, of course. One that will play plenty of future titles.

LOL!
Is that a funny pick? :p

I guess it'd be asking too much...

It is because Earthbound has far too many copyright issues to even have a re-release outside of Japan.

Sorry, the 3DS Ambassadors is restricted to 10 NES and 10 GBA games. It's not any game of your choice but some of these games will be exclusive to the early 3DS owners.
Oh well that's too bad. Though I suppose it could still be a sweet deal. So what interesting titles can you pick then?

"1.Beginning Sept. 1st, Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors will be able to download 10 NES%u2122 Virtual Console%u2122 games at no charge and before they are available in Nintendo eShop for the general public. These games, including Super Mario Bros.%u2122, Donkey Kong Jr.%u2122, Balloon Fight%u2122, Ice Climber%u2122 and The Legend of Zelda%u2122, will be released as paid downloadable games, but Ambassadors can download them in advance of launch for free. Once the paid versions of the games are released in Nintendo eShop later in the year, the updated versions will be available to Ambassadors for download at no cost.

2. By the end of 2011, Nintendo will provide Ambassadors with 10 Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games. These include games like Yoshi's Island%u2122: Super Mario%u2122 Advance 3, Mario Kart%u2122: Super Circuit, Metroid%u2122 Fusion, WarioWare%u2122, Inc.: Minigame Mania and Mario vs. Donkey Kong%u2122. These games will be available exclusively to Ambassadors, and Nintendo currently has no plans to make these 10 games available to the general public on Nintendo 3DS in the future."

I really hope Spoony didn't do that and I can't see why he would. Ever since his girlfriend left him, he has vastly improved with his videos and how he interacts with his fans. I want it to stay that way.
Yeah, he would pretty much lose his entire European fanbase (apart from the UK) that way.

I didn't know his girlfriend left him, but I guess that would explain why he's putting out more videos (and taking more time to go through Final Fantasy X-2).

I'd say it explains why his videos from this year are a whole lot better than what he did last year. Beating the shit out of FFX-2, reviewing bad movies based on fighting games and the Beastmaster reviews have shown he's made quite a comeback.

Then we should have an army of Rucklos.
Shit! That'd be a spam overkill and no mod could do anything about it :o

Which is why we freeze them all and unfreeze one at a time.

It sure will but only viewable on my end. I'll probably reach a post milestone while I'm level 49.
Well take a screenshot of it and post that pictures then.

Of course I'll show it.

Only EXP and posts can keep me going right now.
But on Exp you're not gaining on me and I'm pretty damn sure I can get more BP per day than you can post. So this is a won battle :)

Hey, even I admit to losing here.

I really don't know what to make of all this rioting. Surely one single dead guy who got shot by the police can't be the reason for ALL of this. :/

The original riots were to do with that. The rest was just copycats. Basically, all the yobs started causing mayhem on the streets.

Make it never but I suppose you'll hear it at some point. I think No Sacrifice, No Victory is a lot better than it and the majority hated that album.
HammerFall isn't high on my list at this moment anyway.

I'm glad for that. So what is high on your list right now?

Maybe Falconer covers that.
Hm, I don't know them too well so I can't comment on that.

You should give them a shot. Although I only have three of their albums, they have done some really good stuff on the self-titled album and the latest album. Their newest release is sung entirely in Swedish.

That Wylo guy kept making fun of my name. He'll pay for that!
Overtired should go to sleep!

I'm glad humantarget left!

The argument about modern technology?
Oh yeah.

That was our greatest agreement ever.

I will never know since my dutch isn't good enouh to express an educated opinion on that matter. ^^

I suppose I wouldn't know about the German dub either. But I'd probably find the German dub hilarious anyway :p

I do think that is a much better way, but we simply don't have enough voice actors for that. Perhaps if we would dub more, more people would be willing to lend their voices...
I think the dubs in Germany is one of the best you can find. Sometimes (if it's available on a DVD I bought for example) I watch part of movies in a different language. Most of the time it sounds awful and isn't even lip synchronized.

Still though, I'd rather see the original than a dub in most cases. I got a feeling that more of the original work gets lost by dubbing than by subbing.

I've seen a few films where they even changed the original soundtrack in the dub, and it turned out awful. It didn't suit the film at all.

A downside is that I have the feeling that people from countries where movies don't get dubbed so often are much better in speaking/writing english than people from Germany.

Probably. Watching English films and playing English video games did really help me improve my English early on in life. I think it's the reason why I ended up with one of the top grades in English class in high school ^^

And it's weird, because I've always been more of a math and physics guy than a languages guy.

Oh hey, Hermoine sounds just like Timmy Turner...
Timmy Turner actually is dubbed by a man. :P

Not here he isn't. He's dubbed by a 48 year old woman, who's also an actress in the Dutch Sesame Street.

It's not uncommon for a male kid to be voiced by a woman by the way. I believe the English Ash (from Pokemon) is also dubbed by a woman.

I mean, most of the times when you're supposed to look at what is going on on the screen (i.e: action scenes, cinematographic shots) not much is said anyway. Except for a black guy going "Oh shit!" or something, but you don't have to read subtitles to understand that :p
Yeah, but there are movies that aren't just action movies, like "Last Year at Marienbad" for example. I would hate to read all the dialogue (ah well, it's more like a monologue most of the time) in the subtitles. If I want to read something, I'd get myself a book! :P

When you do have to read a lot of subtitles is when characters are having conversations, but then there's usually not much else going on at the screen anyway so you won't miss much.
See above. "Last Year at Marienbad" has lots of dialogues and some pretty confusing images. If you have to relate to subtitles to get what is being said and at the same time you have to try and concentrate on the images... it wouldn't work out well, I guess.

Oh well, I guess that's just one problem case, but for most films it works fine.

But since I'm talking about a french movie right now. I never understood why there are so many french movies that make use of FRENCH subtitles. There's one french TV station I can watch on television and very often they show french movies with french subtitles. What's the use of that? ^^

They sometimes do that here too, but only for the news when they interview someone who talks in a horrible accent :p

Admittedly, you might see less of the actors performances, but for some actors you don't want to see it anyway :p
Hey, Steven Seagal is a great actor! >:(

He sure is :p

Yeah well... usually it is done in such a way that it is not complete gibberish to the layman, because Americans hate reading subtitles too ;) I believe that was actually the biggest complaint of the American cinema goers when they saw Inglourious Basterds.
Yeah, but as a native speaker it's more easy to understand the accents. If I hear some of the german accents, like bavarian, swabian or (even worse) hessian I can usually make out most of what is said. Someone who's not a german native speaker will have a hard time understanding anything.

I don't know how good your german is, but try to understand something of this video. It's the dialect of the Saarland.

I could make out some lines and words, but it's difficult. Then again, I don't know if I would understand a normal German sitcom any better.

Speaking of which, how did they dub that film in Germany? The different languages was kind of a big point in the film.
I don't know, I watched the original version. XD

Ah I see. I thought that film would be pretty odd if they all talked German. Considering they need someone to speak Italian at some point and Hans Landa's big thing is that he speaks four languages fluently.

Oh I didn't even know he pruned people.

But I guess he knows I'm still a very active user, so I suppose he'll just let me stay on the team. Who knows, maybe I'll get back to work someday.

Oh I guess. Though I think the steak sandwich is a bit more expensive.
You never know. They can use some fillers like cat meat to make it cheaper.

Cat meat? I'd be pretty surprised if that's what they used :p

Hmm better look for a different location to set up your factory then. How does China sound?
It sounds like a hassle to move across an ocean.I'm not sure how inviting the Chinese are to an American company trying to but in in a industry already monopolized by them. What about the Netherlands? How is the business industry over there?

Not much competition, but it's too crowded here for such a business. You'll have the cops all over your ass in no time. Better set it up in Canada then, in some remote forest.

I guess they're just doing their best to innovate and the 3D gimmick IS catching on in the cinemas (sadly).

Yeah, but if it's just a standard upgrade from the DS they wouldn't charge 250 euros would they?

I see. Some good titles there I guess, but I'd hope for some more good ones.

I'd at least get Metroid Fusion, Warioware and The Legend of Zelda.

I haven't checked out Beastmaster yet, but his FFX-2 does look very good so far. Like I said before somewhere, this time it does look like he takes his time to explain the games mechanics and go more in-depth. Something I thought I was missing in his FFX review.

Shit! That'd be a spam overkill and no mod could do anything about it :o

True. Sometimes the translations are shit.

I've seen a few films where they even changed the original soundtrack in the dub, and it turned out awful. It didn't suit the film at all.

Heh. I've never seen that. But sometimes the original sound (ie the voices, etc) are too quiet in the original - or the sounds from the environment are too loud. Especially some of the older Columbo films have that problem. A dub (or subtitles) really helps here, because all the voices are cristal clear.

A downside is that I have the feeling that people from countries where movies don't get dubbed so often are much better in speaking/writing english than people from Germany.

Bart Simpson is dubbed by a woman as well (Nancy Cartwright in english, Sandra Schwittau in german)

It's not uncommon for a male kid to be voiced by a woman by the way. I believe the English Ash (from Pokemon) is also dubbed by a woman.

Yes, because male kids have the problem that their voice WILL change once they get older. Grown women aren't that far away from sounding like a little kid, since their voices don't change too much in their life time.

When you do have to read a lot of subtitles is when characters are having conversations, but then there's usually not much else going on at the screen anyway so you won't miss much.

Oh yeah, sometimes on those horrobile TV shows they show during the day some people are subtitled as well. But I only ever see that on RTL, which we call "Unterschichtenfernsehen" (underclass television) anyway. XD

Admittedly, you might see less of the actors performances, but for some actors you don't want to see it anyway :p
Hey, Steven Seagal is a great actor! >:(
He sure is :p

Yes. I like how he can express all those different feelings with only minor changes in his mimic.

Yeah, but as a native speaker it's more easy to understand the accents. If I hear some of the german accents, like bavarian, swabian or (even worse) hessian I can usually make out most of what is said. Someone who's not a german native speaker will have a hard time understanding anything.

I'm not really looking forward to clock day. I've been trying to make my Save/Blam ratio better, and I've managed to go from 7:1 to 6:1. I don't want to not vote on Clock day though. I'll just blam every shitty B remake and hope a lot of them are eventually removed. Looking back at the past clock days, a lot of the submissions are eventually removed for some reason.

Isn't Clock Day like the best day for other groups, if other groups know, they will just put a title with clock in it, and everyone with 5 it. Also, I'm guilty of making crap B remakes for clock day.

I guess they're just doing their best to innovate and the 3D gimmick IS catching on in the cinemas (sadly).

The cinemas it might be a hit but for a handheld, it's not clicking on.

A new handheld, of course. One that will play plenty of future titles.
Yeah, but if it's just a standard upgrade from the DS they wouldn't charge 250 euros would they?

Ah, but they're not charging 250 euros anymore. :P

It is because Earthbound has far too many copyright issues to even have a re-release outside of Japan.
Really? But I thought Earthbound was released in Europe and America too. I don't see what the big deal is.

That was in the 90s and it was a different age for gaming. And no, it wasn't released in Europe so you're really fucked with picking it up on console.

I see. Some good titles there I guess, but I'd hope for some more good ones.

Oh yeah, they'll have more to announce shortly.

I'd at least get Metroid Fusion, Warioware and The Legend of Zelda.

I already have Metroid Fusion on cartridge and the original Zelda is already on the collector's edition I have. However, I think it will work nicely on the 3DS. Warioware is another game I may as well pick up. I already played Touched and Smooth Moves so I may as well see what the original is like. I may have SMB on GBA cartridge already but there's no harm in downloading them all considering they're free.

I'd say it explains why his videos from this year are a whole lot better than what he did last year. Beating the shit out of FFX-2, reviewing bad movies based on fighting games and the Beastmaster reviews have shown he's made quite a comeback.
I haven't checked out Beastmaster yet, but his FFX-2 does look very good so far. Like I said before somewhere, this time it does look like he takes his time to explain the games mechanics and go more in-depth. Something I thought I was missing in his FFX review.

Yeah, Spoony really missed out on the Sphere Grid for the FFX review and when fans asked him about it on Twitter, he actually told them to piss off. That's one of many reasons why he became a target on ED as well as other sites.

Which is why we freeze them all and unfreeze one at a time.
Yeah. Hopefully no-one will break into our secret lab and set all the clones free. 'Zat would be a disaster'.

Then we keep it as secured as possible.

Hey, even I admit to losing here.
Now to find out a way to beat Coop.

Well, have fun with that. Coop's well ahead of me at this point.

More Opeth, I guess. ^^
And some more Death, maybe.

Good and good. Well, not that HammerFall are bad or anything but Infected is one album that sucks.

You should give them a shot. Although I only have three of their albums, they have done some really good stuff on the self-titled album and the latest album. Their newest release is sung entirely in Swedish.
Will do.

Oh, and the new album is called Armod.

I'm glad humantarget left!
Still over a year before I pass him. >:(

And that paperbag wearing douche Shrapnel is gone as well.

That was our greatest agreement ever.
I'm glad you think so. It at least was more fun than any "Manowar is gay" argument. ^^

Don't forget that German firefighting dragon.

Yeah like a month or two ago. You know those who originally signed up for the aura way back when and those who have done absolutely nothing.

Cat meat? I'd be pretty surprised if that's what they used :p

You never know. Next time you go in ask them. Say you'd like a side of cat meat with your steak sandwich.

Not much competition, but it's too crowded here for such a business. You'll have the cops all over your ass in no time. Better set it up in Canada then, in some remote forest.

You know I think gang infested Mexico is more habitable than Canada.

What's wrong with my look? I like the goatee and the hair was there for Maiden - I'll keep it until the end of the cricket season, that's guaranteed.

One of my favourite release games for the PS2 appears to have been remade for the PS3. SSX
looks better than ever.

Same for the dutch dub. :P
I guess I should give the danish dub a try as well. XD

Lol! I always imagine Scandinavian languages sounding even more silly to foreigners than Dutch does :p

Still though, I'd rather see the original than a dub in most cases. I got a feeling that more of the original work gets lost by dubbing than by subbing.
True. Sometimes the translations are shit.

Yeah. I know sometimes the subbing is also shit, but at least I can hear it then and laugh at the terrible job someone did translating it.

Furthermore, phrases like "What an asshole!" have lead to plenty of creative and hilarious translations in the subtitles :p

I've seen a few films where they even changed the original soundtrack in the dub, and it turned out awful. It didn't suit the film at all.
Heh. I've never seen that. But sometimes the original sound (ie the voices, etc) are too quiet in the original - or the sounds from the environment are too loud. Especially some of the older Columbo films have that problem. A dub (or subtitles) really helps here, because all the voices are cristal clear.

Seen it happen in several cartoons. I believe it was/is kinda hip to change the soundtrack from Japanese cartoons to something more... American if it's ever broadcasted on TV for children. This can sometimes just set an entirely different mood for a scene.

Probably. Watching English films and playing English video games did really help me improve my English early on in life. I think it's the reason why I ended up with one of the top grades in English class in high school ^^
Yes. Video games can teach you important things! :D

Yeah! They taught me how to double jump :D

Not here he isn't. He's dubbed by a 48 year old woman, who's also an actress in the Dutch Sesame Street.
I know. That's why I mentioned it. :P
Bart Simpson is dubbed by a woman as well (Nancy Cartwright in english, Sandra Schwittau in german)

Oh yeah, I've heard that too. I'm sure there are more examples to find.

It's not uncommon for a male kid to be voiced by a woman by the way. I believe the English Ash (from Pokemon) is also dubbed by a woman.
Yes, because male kids have the problem that their voice WILL change once they get older. Grown women aren't that far away from sounding like a little kid, since their voices don't change too much in their life time.

I guess that's the idea. It's usually not such a big deal, as long as it's not too recognizabely a woman.

Oh well, I guess that's just one problem case, but for most films it works fine.
Depends on the kind of movies you like to watch, I guess. :P

As long as it's not romantic comedies I'm open for anything.

They sometimes do that here too, but only for the news when they interview someone who talks in a horrible accent :p
Oh yeah, sometimes on those horrobile TV shows they show during the day some people are subtitled as well. But I only ever see that on RTL, which we call "Unterschichtenfernsehen" (underclass television) anyway. XD

Lol!

We call our SBS6 the "camping channel", I suppose it's a similar set-up as your RTL.

He sure is :p
Yes. I like how he can express all those different feelings with only minor changes in his mimic.

It looks like they haven't included his horrible pain pace yet.

I could make out some lines and words, but it's difficult. Then again, I don't know if I would understand a normal German sitcom any better.
How about some Married with children, then?
Oh, and don't mind the artificial laughter, everybody here thinks it sucks as well.

Oh but the artificial laughter is in the original show as well, and plenty of sitcom shows use it so I'm kinda used to it by now (even though I don't like it much either).

Anyway I think Peg needs to sound more whiney, like she does in the original ("but AAAAHAAAAAAAAL") :p

Again I can make out a couple of words and lines, but I can't understand it entirely.

Ah I see. I thought that film would be pretty odd if they all talked German. Considering they need someone to speak Italian at some point and Hans Landa's big thing is that he speaks four languages fluently.
I remember "Saving Privat Ryan", where they met that german guy. That scene made no sense in the german dub.

Lol, I can imagine. I thought one thing was that he kept talking to them but they couldn't really understand him.

Or Heinz? :p
No no, that's the ketchup brand. :P

Heinrich then?

Beauty is no more it's all gone
And utopia will not come

Trust I can not feel, only pain
And my burning mind has gone insane

Well not everybody is happy with the hype. In fact, most of the other regular cinema goers I talk with hate it as much as I do. Tickets cost extra, but it's never worth the money.

Maybe more and more people have come to realize this and that's why the 3D on handhelds isn't clicking on?

Yeah, but if it's just a standard upgrade from the DS they wouldn't charge 250 euros would they?
Ah, but they're not charging 250 euros anymore. :P

Not anymore, no. Still, it is kinda lame that the price cut in America is from $250 to $170 and in Europe it's from 250 euros to 170 euros which is still about $250 -.-'

Really? But I thought Earthbound was released in Europe and America too. I don't see what the big deal is.
That was in the 90s and it was a different age for gaming. And no, it wasn't released in Europe so you're really fucked with picking it up on console.

FFFFFFFFF

People keep recommending me this game, but I suppose I'll have a tough time trying to find it then... =/

I see. Some good titles there I guess, but I'd hope for some more good ones.

I think he gave a few short comments on it, but yeah... I wish he went as in-depth as he did in FFVIII on the Junction system and the Triple Triad game.

Yeah. Hopefully no-one will break into our secret lab and set all the clones free. 'Zat would be a disaster'.
Then we keep it as secured as possible.

Get one of your dragon buddies to guard the front door. That'll do the trick.
