  1. How do you correct a picture's thumbnail? I updated the Mega Man Legends 2 screenshot, but it still shows flipped in the article.
  2. Lego Batman has a Japanese PC release. I don't know much about it. https://www.mercari.com/jp/items/m388928787/ (it would appear, on the other hand, that Lego Batman 3's localization isn't available for PC...)
  3. I'm trying to add the announced Microsoft Store version of Dragon Quest Builders 2, and I get an automated error in either Firefox or Edge. The text I wanted to insert is "{{Availability/row| Microsoft Store | 9pfd00czj35v | Microsoft Store | {{store feature|Xbox Game Pass}}, {{store feature|Xbox Play Anywhere}} | | Windows }}"
  4. Pirated copies should be presumed untrustworthy by default. No telling how they've been tampered with. DRM that makes legitimate copies inoperable is a separate concern.
  5. It's been brought to my attention The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind has mods to translate the game to Japanese. How complete are the efforts? It'd be unwise to play this game in a language I don't understand to check for errors. One such mod appears to be available here. https://www.nexusmods.com/morrowind/mods/19510/? (scroll down to "Japanese localization. Integrated patch by TObject. Allows Japanese language fonts in dialogue.")
  6. Another one I wouldn't have guessed. A Korean release of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. https://oldpcgames.tistory.com/1618
  7. Similarly, there's the Naval Ops series. https://www.amazon.co.jp/s?k=鋼鉄の咆哮&i=software&__mk_ja_JP=カタカナ&ref=nb_sb_noss Gee this stuff was huge in Japan. I shudder at the proverbial flood of Daisenryaku.
  8. The Korean release of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd (third chapter) needs investigating. I'm getting the feeling it was digitally distributed by an obscure, possibly defunct company. http://blog.daum.net/fidusachates/7323440 The domain name "aruon.com" is no longer valid and redirects to a reseller.
  9. Hi. I've noticed the Steam page has deleted any mention of OS X support, seemingly without posting a news announcement. Can someone clarify this for me? https://store.steampowered.com/app/332200/Axiom_Verge/
  10. The other version of that USB game controller had arcade classics. http://www.rfgeneration.com/PHP/gethwinfo.php?ID=U-016-H-00280-A I wouldn't try to understand what was going on with Frogger. The series went in strange directions, most would rather forget the awkwardness of Frogger: The Great Quest.
  11. Several Falcom games have localizations not on PC. Such as the European languages in console ports of Ys 6 and Ys Origin. Or the Chinese and Korean console versions of Ys 8. The Trails of Cold Steel arc is supposed to be getting China and Korea PC versions, er, eventually. https://www.cloudedleopardent.com/en/home-3/
  12. I haven't turned up differences, but it looks like a bunch of trinkets were available. https://www.gamersky.com/news/201510/677153.shtml
  13. I've spotted signs of a Bioshock Japanese release. No pictures of the contents unfortunately. https://www.amazon.co.jp/イーフロンティア-バイオショック-日本語版/dp/B001AG0RTW It would seem, however, that the original Bioshock 2 needs a translation patch. http://anabebelive.blog.jp/archives/52563184.html To go way back, how about System Shock? Pretty cool sight. Except I'm not familiar with the details of how DOS/V differs from standard MS-DOS. https://bcc.hatenablog.com/entry/20130113/p1
  14. How quirky. LIVEWIRE! is new to me. Poking around, there are lots more nifty Japanese releases. Some might have just a translated manual. Star Wars is known to be fairly popular in Japan so I'm not counting it right now. Rome Total War: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/d284637839 Spider-Man The Movie: https://item.fril.jp/b3ef0a75827263aaee20519dd0de76a8 Spider-Man (Neversoft): https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/t711503167
  15. Here's a look at Civilization 4 in Japanese. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EM4-vE1aTJU
  16. I'd only consider subpages for games that released in a horrible state and almost need a fixes wiki in their own right. If the Grand Theft Auto San Andreas article is an indication.
  17. Eggerland / Adventures of Lolo has a few PC games. They've got to be obscure, even the fan remake has been lost for years. Seriously?
  18. OK. This will take more research. Civilization: Call to Power notes that the DVD release includes extra content. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King has a DVD edition with some bonuses, as well as an additional disc in the Dell collector's edition. I haven't confirmed whether their extras are the same.
  19. World Series Baseball 96 is one of those curiously Asian only games featuring American MLB teams and players. (Konami's MLB Power Pros also has untranslated entries) It feels as if companies weren't quite sure what to make of the success of Windows 95 and tried everything for a while.
  20. How much detail should be added about physical special or limited editions? Axion Verge has a fancy IndieBox release, and a standard GameTrust release. ReCore's US retail version doesn't include the European limited artbook or soundtrack. I understand irrelevant doodads like figurines, etc are outside the scope of PCGW, except feelies required for gameplay. As awesome as owning a box set of Falcom CDs would be. (Ys The Oath in Felghana went above and beyond)
  21. Taxonomy gives a wealth of detail in very few words. The theme, controls, and stuff, matter a lot whether I'll enjoy a game. Simple notes go a long way. For instance I appreciate knowing when extras (soundtracks, wallpapers, etc) are included that aren't already clarified in the usual places like the game's store page or boxart.
  22. What's the difference between the (delisted) Windows 10 version and the Steam version? I'm aware the game (obviously) had touch controls on mobile. Was that available for desktop PCs sporting a touch monitor? It would also appear more languages were included. The Microsoft Store mentions Chinese, Russian, Japanese and Korean, none of which are on Steam. Except I can't confirm their presence with the game gone. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/ducktales-remastered/9nblgggxwkcv?activetab=pivot:overviewtab
  23. Alright. Adding notes to the games' articles works for me.
  24. In 2013, a separate Japanese PC version of FF7 was released. It appears to be the 2012 version besides language and the activation system (it's not a Steam game). Has anything else been changed we should know about? I'd rather ask before trying to explain this in an article based on info in a language I don't read. https://store.jp.square-enix.com/category/DL01/SEDL_1010.html Edit: I also found non-Steam downloadable FF8. http://www.jp.square-enix.com/ffviii-pc-jp/
  25. Impressive effort. The edges of the title screen look strange, since you're seeing out of bounds. The PC version has a few quirks from what I've heard. Like Pac-Man's metal transformation effect is different. FYI the Japanese localization was only for PS2.
