Yet another stupid dubbing mistake appals fans

Every now and then people wonder how come some of us keep preferring the Japanese dubbing in games most of the times.Well,here's another great example at how English dubs are cheap and thoughtless,simply focusing in a fast localization,rather than aknowledging how important a game actually is.
Oh yeah,I forgot that mispelling trademark moves in a game is obviously taking fans into consideration.

The video in discussion:


The weak of heart should just stop after hearing the word once or twice.

New Atelier game announced,expected to be better than its predecessors

The newest installment of the popular Atelier series seems to be as good as ever,with many new features and returning characters.

As far as new features are concerned,the game is supposed to have some sort of land cultivation system,as well as improved battle system.

It also features a lolified Rorona,though we don'y know how Rorona ended up younger than Totori,who was her pupil.

The game is scheduled for Playstation 3 on the 23rd of June in Japan.

Now why can only wonder when Atelier Totori is going to actually be localized...

Japan has started dropping water to cool down reactors

Japan's military CH-47 Chinook helicopters began spraying tonnes of water on reactors 3 and 4 at Fukushima, 220km (140 miles) from Tokyo, at 0948 local time (0048 GMT), officials said.
Two helicopters, flying at less than 300 feet, dumped four loads of water on the reactor, although the footage suggested a significant quantity was missing the target.

Initially police crews had tried to spray the reactor but were forced to withdraw because they would have been exposed to high radiation levels. The military vehicles, unlike those of the police, are built to allow personnel to remain inside, NHK reported.

The roofs of the No 3 and No 4 reactors were blown away by hydrogen explosions earlier this week, depriving them of a last line of defence against potentially dangerous radiation leaks.
In the worst-case scenario, overheating fuel rods could heat up to the point where they begin to melt and release high levels of radioactivity.

Japan's top spokesman, Yukio Edano, said there was no need to widen the exclusion zone, but signs are emerging that other countries are taking a more cautious approach.

The worsening situation prompted the US to ask citizens living within an 80-km radius to evacuate.
''We are recommending, as a precaution, that American citizens who live within 50 miles (80km) of the Fukushima nuclear power plant evacuate the area or to take shelter indoors if safe evacuation is not practical,'' the US embassy said in a statement.The British embassy has since issued similar advice, and asked citizens living in Tokyo and northern Japan to consider leaving.

Fear not,Catherine WILL be localized after all!

After all the fuss about Atlus seemingly not really up to releasing the game overseas,it seems they were only fooling around with us.

The date seems to be set in July 2011,with Amazon providing a more specific day,July 26th.

Now,we can't help but wonder if there's any chance of getting any kind of pre-order bonus.
