chadi commented on Matters of Import: E.X. Troopers Brings The He...:

Does anyone know a site that has translated dialogue and story for this game? That's the only thing I'm missing since the game's pretty easy to get the hang of even without knowing any Japanese. Regarding localization, I do get that it's hard to redo the manga-like sequences (which are amazing btw, especially in 3D!) since the texts were hardcoded... But I wouldn't mind if they just put subtitles at the bottom and just retain the original art and voices. But yeah, like that will ever happen... Lol.

Anyway, the SP missions are hard as hell (at least in my current level and gear) and since the 3DS version doesn't have online, then good luck in finding someone to play with locally... >.<



chadi commented on 3DS Hack Removes Region Locking For Retail Car...:

Here in the Philippines, it's fairly common to see resellers of Japanese 3DS's and even EU ones because of region lock since only US games are locally available here. Got a regular JP 3DS for around $90 and I think the XL version ranges from around $110-135, used. I bought one just to play MH3G at the time and it was challenging to get games for it at first. It has become a lot easier now though since almost all games are available via eShop. I can even get the latest games Day 1 which I did with MH4. For the amount of time I've spent playing my JP 3DS, I'd say that my purchase was well worth it.

Now, if this workaround was available before I got my JP unit, I can honestly say that my decision would've stayed the same. For one, I still want to be able to play my DS library. Losing backwards compatibility would render them useless. Also, not being able to access the JP eShop means I would need to import physical copies of all my games which will accumulate tax and shipping charges. Then lastly, losing online functionality and game updates released via eShop would really suck and will not let me enjoy my games fully.

If it didn't have those major issues, then I would probably try it. But at the moment, it doesn't seem like a good alternative.
