Another day of good work and exercise. Got to the part in the Secret of Mana LP where you get water magic. I forgot how… unrigid the game feels. Like it lacks punctuation at each event in the game. It feels very flowy and strange, maybe it’s because it was originally meant to be a much bigger game?
Work was tough again but I managed to get it done. It’s one of those things where even way after you’re done you come up with even more ideas on how to handle things. As a translator, there’s always an never-ending desire to polish up old translations, but at some point you gotta resist or it’ll eat your brain. To this day I think about game translations I did like 13 years ago, for example :X
Speaking of which, work on the next Mother 3 patch is nearly done. I want to do a few more things before it goes into the testing phase, mostly stuff that will make it easier for us to release the files and tools at the same time. So I’m guessing in the next few weeks it’ll be out.
Because I got a late start on weights I went back to good ol’ Saved by the Bell for today – one of the episodes was the famous one where Jessie gets hooked on pills. The preview image I had on Netflix for it was kind of creepy:
I like how dumb the show is. In this episode the girls are scouted by some music producer and they run around singing to much applause and doing music videos. Yet in the episode just before it, they made it a point to show how terrible of a singing voice Kelly had. I mean, what are we to believe, that this is some sort of a magic xylophone or something? Boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder.
