  1. Spoiler-free Sonic Mania discussion thread

    10 August 2017 - 03:49 PM

    So it's been suggested that until a good time after Mania launch (say a week or so) it'd be a good idea to have a guaranteed spoiler-free thread. So, here it is!

    Here's the deal. We all know there's Mania spoilers online now. If you MUST post about them, do it in the main thread, and use spoiler tags. If you post any in here, spoiler tags or not, you will get an instant 1-week suspension at best - more, if I think you're doing it deliberately. You've been warned.

    Everyone happy? Those saving themselves: go!

    It's not the Smash Pack one! There's a video of it running, too:

    Quite something. What could have been if they'd released it, eh?
  4. #TakeMyMoneySoE

    15 April 2016 - 01:20 PM

    This is Sega Europe. They do things like localise games from Japanese and release them in the UK, Germany, France, Australia, etc.

    Oh, did I say localise games? Old hat. Their current job is to say "no information at this time" to any questions on Twitter. Over and over and over again. This is a shame, because SoE used to be the best Sega division, and SoA has rather cheekily stolen this title in the last couple of years.

    The only reason I can think of for them doing this (other than just tormenting the audience, and I can't see this as a logical business decision), is that they don't think they'll make any money on a release. That the translation won't get them sales, and that they need some incentive or something.

    Right. They want some incentive? Let's bloody GIVE them an incentive! If the only thing they're going to listen to is cold hard cash, I think we can do that.

    Here's the plan:

    1) Get some bank notes, how much a game'd cost in your local currency. This is an SoE focused effort so we're looking at pounds, Euros, Australian or New Zealand dollars (though if any Yanks want to join in, I don't see the harm in a few dollarbux posts either!)

    2) Write the name of a game SoE has yet to make any sort of plans for in Europe, but that already came out in the US, on a sheet of A4 paper in nice readable letters.

    3) Take a photo of these two things and post it on Twitter to @SEGA_Europe, with the hashtag #TakeMyMoneySoE somewhere in the tweet.

    I think we'll be most effective if we do one game at a time, and I'm going to crosspost this to a few places. How about we start with a nice simple and obvious one? SEGA 3D Classics Collection. Here's a tweet I made earlier:

    This game would cost £30, €40, or $60AUD? If anyone here's using Krona or Swiss Francs or whatever, please feel free to work out your equivalent amount and hop onboard the money train. Do whatever you want with the notes once you've taken the picture, you don't need to specifically ear-mark it for the relevant game right now - but if it DOES result in them releasing the relevant game, then you'd better be planning on buying it or this only ends up being a one-shot deal and we lose any future power we might have had.

    The whole point of this idea is to make Sega Europe realise just how much cash they're losing by constantly refusing to localise anything - and because a lot of the output is for the damn 3DS, we have no way of importing it (alright, yes, homebrew region-ignoring hax, but that carries its own risks). Maybe if they can physically SEE what they're losing, they might bloody DO something about it.
  5. Yakuza 5 localisation confirmed

    06 December 2014 - 02:41 PM

    The catch, apart from it being a PS3 exclusive? Download release only.
