Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

アリン is a feminine name in Japanese, not a masculine one. However, the closest literal translation of her name, into English, is masculine. The closest literal translation of her name is Alene or Alaine or Eirene, as I stated in my post. Because if you had a real Japanese friend named アリン and she in...

Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

Like, with your response above and in general the gist of responses like this, it feels like people are ignoring the actual reason being given because they don't like they way it's being worded. Looking at your response, regardless if Erin is also a male name, Alan is a much more commonly known one...

Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

The fact that "Alyn" is pronounced as /ˈɑːrɪn/ in Japanese is completely irrelevant Now, because I personally did not want a cute little fairy who was also one of the two female leads in the game to have an English name that phonetically resembled a masculine name, I changed the spelling ...

Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

Conversely, I think based on how it's written/pronounced, I don't think anyone would have really cared that much if they had never romanized it in Japan (for the Japanese audience, mind) in the first place. Eryn doesn't not work for the name based on how they pronounce it. https://youtu.be/UqJh_wUK...

Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

Man, I guess that "Eff hole" thing is just never gonna die, huh. Sorry, not that one. The Alyn/Eryn thing, actually. I appreciated the insight given into it, but as a non native English speaker all that reasoning made no sense to me. What's worse, it looked like an enormous overthinking e...

You specifically mentioned "there are exceptions" in your post, may we ask what those exceptions are?

Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

Further, TDA, how much of a localization project would you accredit 100% to yourself and no one else? I'm assuming you have frequent discussions with other folks on how to word stuff or how to translate a phrase, and the scripts go through some amount of peer review/quality control, so it's also not...

The game will cost $30 on both PC and PSP.

Re: Nights of Azure (2nd Ed. Tournament-Legal Beedle)

I've seen people (claim) not buy a game over a single letter in a character's name, so ya never know. I also like the sound of 'Azure' in general though, so maybe that's why I like it :lol: My argument against that is, if people really do exist that base their purchases on something trivial like th...

Re: Nights of Azure (2nd Ed. Tournament-Legal Beedle)

"Nights of Azure" just sounds kind of generically fantasy, while "Land of No Night" sounds intriguing and stands out because it's a bit odd and/or archaic. In the end, unless the title has a direct impact on the game in some way, either story or gameplay (like as a proper noun or...

Re: Tales of Zestiria (PS3/4/C) NA/EU Dual-Audio OUT

Re: Hot Topic Game Discussion

What I was saying was taking footage of, say, Asians and then digitally slapping white people on top of them, or vice versa. Not exactly the same as just making a technically new show. You mean like this? This is the best image: https://twitter.com/cyross4vocaloid/status/611528527779753985/photo/1
