A big batch of goodies arrived from Japan today, hooray! Pretty much all of it’s going to be used for Legends of Localization stuff eventually, some sooner than others. Many thanks to Dr. Fedora for being the middleman for it all – it would’ve cost probably twice as much if it weren’t for you, so thanks again!
I used to have a Japanese PS2 that I hardly ever used, but when I went to try it out a few months ago it suddenly died in a bad way 🙁 So unfortunately I can’t check out the Japanese Gitaroo Man just yet.
I thought I could play the Japanese Symphony of the Night on my American PS3, but alas, I was wrong about that – it gives me a lame region error.
So it looks like I’m going to have to bite the bullet and get a Japanese PS2 someday, the only problem is that they don’t manufacture them anymore. Weird modchip/disc swapping stuff is another option too, but that seems like a hassle and unreliable. Emulation is another option too, but my computers aren’t very good and I was never very happy with the state of PS1 emulation the last time I checked.
I dunno – if anyone has any suggestions, let me know!
Finally, thanks to everyone who’s donated so far – my recent progress meter experiment has been pretty interesting and promising, and it’s a big reason I’m able to pick up stuff like this and eventually share the gooey goodness of the info within it all. So thanks a million!
(Seriously, give me a million dollars please)
