Donno vs. Dunno

January 10th, 2013 by Tara

Categories: Miscellaneous, PSP, Vita

In most of December, I’ve been engrossed in Hakuouki for the PSP, a game localised by Aksys.

Right now I am playing Zero Escape for the PS Vita, a game localised by Aksys.

Someone on Aksys’ localisation team is using “donno” for “dunno” — like “I donno” versus “I dunno” — in both games.

. . . It’s a very, VERY minor thing, honestly, but it’s still getting to me since I am used to seeing “dunno” as opposed to “donno”. You’d think after a month, I’d be used to it, but that’s not the case. I still get distracted by the “O” whenever I see “donno”.

On a related issue, Zero Escape is asdfjkl;asdfjkl;!!! I’ll post a more coherent review/reaction when I beat the game!

Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds II Concert

Guess who has booked a VIP ticket to the Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds II concert on October 23, 2011 at 3:00pm at Seongnam Arts Centre in South Korea?

Me! I have previously gone to the 2010 concert in Seoul, so I am extremely excited they are coming for a second round in my home country!

Has anyone else attended any of the Distant Worlds concert? In fact, what other video game concert would you kill to go to? I know if Video Game Music Live ever comes to Korea, I’ll attend that!

DLC annoyance

Robbie and I talk about Dragon Age: Origins and the DLC gear.

Robbie: Is the gear really that much better?
me: About the same as the expensive ones, but I don’t have to pay in game money for them, just real monies. No problem.

I think in most cases, I’m not a fan of DLCs, but this ends up happening anyway. I really think they should be in the game in the first place, and I get annoyed when DLCs I actually want come out after I’ve already finished the game.

Also, I don’t like the “pre-order from [store here]” to get a bonus DLC. I don’t mind pre-ordering, but in a lot of cases, it’s Gamestop, which isn’t where I want to buy the game anyway. I always prefer Amazon since I have reward points.

In terms of Dragon Age, I guess the good thing about playing it late is there’s an “Ultimate Edition” now that comes with Awakening and all the DLCs, which is what I have. I suppose if I want all of the extra content that badly, I could always wait for the bundles. But… when you’re really looking forward to a game… it kind of sucks to wait…

And this is where we differ

Buckley and I have been playing Magicka lately as our next co-op game together. It’s an action-adventure game that lets you combine different magics to produce different spells. While the game tells you how to do some of it, the rest is left for you to experiment. Like… let’s see what happens if I do 2 arcanes and 2 fires, or 1 shield and 4 earths, etc etc.

That’s where our play styles start to differ. I’m the type who would rather learn along the way. I’m not patient enough to mess around to see what I can do right in the beginning. I would rather figure it out as I play.¬†Buckley, on the other hand, is total opposite. Before going anywhere in the game, he’d prefer to try everything, see what he could fully do. He wants to see what’s available and what he’s capable of before really starting.

We’re normally great together in co-op games, but… I think this difference in play style is starting to annoy us a little! I want to move on faster, while he wants to experiment with the magics more.

What is your play style when it comes to stuff like this?

Backloggery Account

After being a member there for two years, I finally got around (yes, I procrastinate really well!) to customising my Backloggery account. After I prettified it, I discovered that Backloggery had changed their rating system from a four-star to a five-star one, and I was not pleased since the anal-retentive side of me went through and updated them!

This is my account. Fear my humongous backlog list!

Anyone of you guys also use that website?
