Skies of Arcadia has finally arrived, but while I was waiting I was reading up on the differences between the Jap and Eng versions. Apparently they cut out all traces of rum, drunkenness, and smoking.

I cannot even begin to explain just how much more awesome this game would be had it retained the drunken, cigar smoking pirates. Game seems to be pretty much awesome aside from that though.

Yeah I remember reading a list of changes, and I think it's pretty lame that they changed what they did. Games now have far worse content than what they cut out of the English release of Skies. Guess the rating system was more strict at that time. Even with the changed content, Skies is still an amazing game that blows away most RPG's.

I really don't think the censored content would've improved the game at all. IMO

I believe some drunkenness is implied when certain pirates are stumbling around in the beginning. I think it's funnier not to see them/read about them drinking and just leave it implied...would be funny to see some random sky pirate puffing on a stogie, however.
