About

Today I want to recommend a website which I find quite interesting as they offer transcriptions and translations for video games. They have mainly Japanese to English translations available because the person who hosts the site learns/knows Japanese which makes it a wonderful resource for all people who want to try "real-world" Japanese instead of just textbook phrases.

Sidenote 1

I recommended the old N64 game 「ワンダープロジェクト J2 コルロの森のジョゼット」 to the author and coincidentally he bought this game a few months ago. According to him he already knows someone who translated it but unfortunately he can not reach him at the moment. I really hope to see a complete translation of this game since it really is a great learning resource. In the game you have to "teach" a robot girl about proper greeting, getting work, cooking, the philosophy behind life and death and lots of other stuff through a small bird that you control. It's absolutely lovely :-)
Also is the Japanese quite easy to understand since most sentences are short and it doesn't contain many complicated words you won't ever see again.

One of the coolest links I've found on the site is this one: link. 「How to beat the swordmaster in the Japanese version of Secret of Monkey Island.」 That's awesome and the right stuff for the next "Talk like a pirate day"!
