I’m a native Japanese speaker, and I hate reading translations from Japanese into English. I actually do translations professionally, and when I’m playing a JRPG in English, I involuntarily think about what the original Japanese probably was, and also how I might have translated it differently—and it drives me crazy.

I kind of had a similar reaction, but for a very different reason. As a young teen, I loved the FF8 story, and even as an adult, I love the Garden storylines, the sorceress storyline, and a lot of the side characters and villains like Cypher and Zell are really entertaining to me.

The thing is, I’m not looking for just JP audio, I want the whole schbang--Japanese menus, Japanese in-game text, Japanese everything.  I’m a native Japanese speaker, and I strongly prefer playing JRPGs in Japanese without needing to read someone else’s translation.  I think many games offer JP audio, but I don’t know

I’ve never tried it, so I’m not 100% sure (plus I’m on the road right now without my PS4), but I did a quick google search and it seems the JP version CAN pull up english subtitles.

At least with Atlus games, I think the games had available Japanese audio (I think?) but the game text was only available in English if you play the US version. Japanese is my native language, so I particularly dislike playing Japanese games in translation, so I strongly prefer playing the original game text.

The only problem is I want not just Japanese audio (which is often included), but I also want Japanese text (which often isn’t).  I’m a native Japanese speaker, and it really grates on my nerves to read someone else’s translation--especially since I’m a translation professional myself.

Not sure, they haven’t announced anything that specific.  I’ve just gone ahead and gotten games in the JP PSN store a number of times when Japanese versions weren’t available in the US (Persona 4, Persona 5, Dragon Quest XI).  I acually ddin’t realize FFXV was available with JP audio in the US, I actaully got that in

I really want to play this game in Japanese, which means buying the game on PSN JP. For whatever reason new games are like $80 in Japan instead of $60...  but this is one game I'm totally willing to pay full price for.

Because Trump is a coward who only goes to places where he’s either guaranteed to be liked (Republican events), or carefully controlled public environments. He doesn’t go out and shake hands with random people on the street, or have a conversation with a group of people in a town hall setting.

To be fair, that’s not for lack of DRAFTING quarterbacks on the Browns’ part. In the past 20 years, they’ve used 4 first round picks on QBs (including twice at #1 overall), ending up with guys like Brady Quinn, Tim Couch, Brandon Weeden and Johnny Manziel. They also drafted Colt McCoy, Cody Kessler, Deshonn Kizer, and

Especially a specialist corner who can lock down elite guys who can shift into the slot, like Tyreek Hill, Julien Edelman or in-his-prime Larry Fitz. Edelman showed in the Superbowl how devastating it can be to NOT have a guy who can defend the slot.

Same. The last game I preordered was 2013 (Rome 2: Total War) which burned me so badly I swore off all preordering with no regrets. I want to play the game in Japanese, so (along with Persona 5) it’s one of the few games I’ll pay full price for. Preordered on the Japanese PSN.

I’ve been watching the trailers in Japanese, the voice acting seems way better.  I speak Japanese fluently, but for the English speakers, I kinda hope there’s a subtitle option.

It’s kind of unfortunate that the live action movie was kind of forced to start at the beginning.

I moved to Washington DC from the southwest, and lemme tell you, the sticker shock was crazy. I used to shop at Ranch Market, where you could get a 5-lb bag of onions for like $2, a sack of potatoes for $3, a 5lb Pork Shoulder Roast for $8, and a gaggle of fresh carrots, avocados, cilantro, and jalopenos for similar

TThe solution is not to trade assets for a player who doesn't want to play for you.  And to have a culture of competence which cam get a player to not burn 7 digits of guarantee money just to not play for you

Why? There’s a reason this is happening to the Raiders and not some competent team. Or why AB was willing to forgo $20M+ difference in guarantees NOT to play for the Raiders.

Idk what ads you all are seeing on this Reddit thread, but I got “immigrate to Canada” from some immigration firm.  That seems... uncanny.  Fucking google.
