And that is true, but project budgets were much smaller back then. I've always wondered about shoddy translations though, how hard was it to find someone that speaks English and Japanese?


The issue isn't finding someone who speaks both - localization takes more than comprehension. You need to understand how different the languages and cultures are before you attempt to translate Japanese to English or vice versa... word-for-word translations never sound right at all.

WD *did* understand that concept.... but they took way too many liberties with their localizations sometimes, IMHO. I mentioned 8-4 because today there is no company out there that does what they do better than them.

Atlus kinda filled the void that WD left... but not perfectly.

Pandemic. Just because the awesomeness that was The Saboteur demands a sequel/similar game. Curse you EA.

I guess probably Oddworld Inhabitants. They did a really good job with Strangers Wrath, and I thought it would be nice to see another game from them and their wacky universe.
