So I just finished Hotel Dusk, Japanese version. It was pretty amazing. I liked how the ending turned out, although my favorite character was Iris and she wasn't really in the game enough for my taste. Just curious, should I seek out the English or Japanese version of Last Window? I personally found the tone of the Japanese "Wish Room" quite engaging. While I was playing I was thoroughly engaged and I didn't feel like it was too "standard" Japanese. I loved how Kyle called Melissa ちび、 for instance. Lots of little touches in the script made it a joy to play. I did take a look at the English script for Hotel Dusk 1, it seems like a masterful localization! I worked in localization before and who ever did this really fell in love with the theme and characters and did an outstanding job, but I can see where they embellished a little bit to add references for the US crowd (I just saw a Scooby Doo reference, for instance). Also Dunning's accent is a bit annoying, it reminds me of Chrono Cross :p But yea I'm going to get Last Window soon. Is the story on par or better than 1? [QUOTE] The script in the English release of Hotel Dusk was undeniably terrific-licious. The JA release just didn't have the same feel to it. Kind of just like the opposite of how Japanese games loose their touch when they're translated to English. It's been posted in the past and I'm sure everyone's seen it, [URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6shp3Qm2Jl0]but just in case[/URL]. [/QUOTE] They are tracing over VIDEO of ACTORS???!! No wonder it looks so nice!!! Jesus... Thanks for posting this Professor! Edit: I'm reading the English script now, and it adds a LOT. Item descriptions are better, of course. But some of the new euphemisms feel a bit out of place. I also am not sure I like what they did with a few of the characters. But it does have more personality overall.
