Re: Japanese Game Translation "Wish List"

I too would love to see the 3DO version of ROTK IV get translated. Yes, it's on other platforms, but experiencing each console's unique version is definitely worthwhile, as we never know what'll be there until we find out firsthand! Koei used a standardized approach to their games, and I'm wondering...

Re: Review - Iron Angel of the Apocalypse

This is a very well-written and perceptive review. Though I'm quite sympathetic to the game (and to the genre of slow-moving robot FPSes in general), I'm probably in the 9% that admires the game's style, but finds it too clunky to be much fun. I don't mind the low frame rate too much, but the lack o...

Re: Review - Strahl

There are 48, good sir. And they depend on which order you clear the stages in. You also get different "cut scenes" telling you about your civilization's progress depending on stages you chose to complete. 48?! :shock: Wow, that's intense.

Re: Recent 3DO Purchases

Agreed with your description of Mazer. At the time it struck me as something like a cross between Smash TV and Shadow: War of Succession. It's a bit janky but very playable. I have fond memories of that game because just as I finished it, my wife got home from a church sale with ~10 boxes of quality...

Re: Russian translation of Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon S

Yeah, it was apparently a minor success in Russia. I don't know whether the leftover stock came from Japan or Korea, but unsold 3DOs seem to have ended up there and attained some degree of popularity. Maybe a Russian-speaking colleague can tell us more?

Russian translation of Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon S

Just discovered that there's also a complete Russian translation of Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon S. Those Russian hackers have been busy! :)

Sadly it looks to be mostly image-editing work (which is labor-intensive), but it's still good to know that a translation is clearly possible.

Russian translation of D: Director's Cut

As seen here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TF50Oi0znE

I'm not completely sure, but from what I can tell, not only has the original D been translated and fan-dubbed into Russian, but the Director's Cut has been translated as well. Not 100% clear on whether the translation is complete or not.

I found another list that, in addition to the list in the OP, mentions:

Policenauts (1995)

No idea whether it's correct, since I don't have a 3DO mouse!
