    Default Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia - Information Thread

    Time to break the silence!

    It's already the release day and I don't see ANY post about this game on any site/forums. What's going on? Did the America forget about the game release? I was expecting a big influx of information!

    So, here's the information thread for Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia - the part of the series which was never given enough love from fans.

    Any information, names, screens etc. for the freshly released game is welcome here!

    I think it got delayed as I didn't get a call about my pre-order arriving from Gamestop. I'm about to give them a call.

    OMG. It would suck if the release got delayed!

    Maybe it's just Gamestop who has some problems.

    I got it today. It was in the back room. And it's at a store that usually has delayed shipping. Fuck yeah, Canada! Okay, let's play this motherfucker. I'd make it more like a traditional Let's Play if I could take screenshots, but I cannot, so...I'll find another way! Logbook or some shit.

    Part 1: Good morning everyone!


    Part 2: Show Me Your Moves!


    Part 3: This School is Insane.


    Part 4: Another Place To See!


    Part 5: Ascension Square


    Part 6: Nightrun

    Official website has updated with a bunch of stuff with coool new art :)

    EDIT: It knd of sucks that the only new character they've revealed is Crawford on that website and its telling us to come back on December first. What, are they revealing one character again?

    So I quoted this from Maxim in another thread:

    But to be honest, there is a bigger thing I would write to them about. Seeing that the new translator has NO IDEA about character naming (see - Kellyn, Barlow, Rythmi and other Ranger 2 characters) I would suggest the names of new characters to them.

    Seeing that Ranger 2 adopted many Engrished forms of Japanese names (Barou -> Barlow, Rizumi -> Rythmi)
    So that's what happened with Rythmi (makes me wonder why trhey didn't just stick with the japanese names if they were going to make it awkward for english speaking people anyway).

    I was wondering why Kellyn's english and japanese names had completely different meaings.

    That would also explain the "my name is female student" thing.

    Oh and "Splendidocious"

    It's probably just a joke. And I laughed at it...slightly. Better than "OMG I REFERENCED A INTERNET MEME IM SO FUNY" like in DP, or "ashes in my eyelashes" like in RSE. They need to go back to referencing all sorts of things, like they did with The Godfather in RBY. Now that's classy stuff!

    And there's a very big difference between translating and localization. With translating, the meaning is often misunderstood by anyone who doesn't understand Japanese (almost everyone playing), and a lot of jokes will get lost. But with localization, things get reworked to make more sense, although it may make the traditionalists or weeaboos cry.

    P.S. Maxim needs to learn to spell rhythm. >_>

    I'll update my mini Let's Play's original post with updates. Unless there are any objections? I'll continue anyway seeing as how you the US seems to have a delay with the release.

    EDIT: Actually, forget it. This style works better. By the way, I might mention that I've never played this before or know the story, although I have played the original. This means I'll have a more neutral opinion of things, I guess.

    What I don't get is how you can only have six letters in your name, but people like Rhythmi get seven
    Yes! Another reason why that system sucks!

    Part 7: Frat-tastic!


    Part 8: Outdoor Action


    Part 9: Grand Theft Styler


    Part 10: Internaround


    Part 11: Delivery Boys


    Part 12: A Man's Job


    Part 13: Bad Luck My Ass


    Part 14: Finally In Red, Like A True Communist


    Part 15: Disturbing Disturbed Disturbances

    Crappy joke is crappy. Fine, needs better localization.

    Did anyone start the game with the girl? I want to know her default name!

    Anyway, so Rizumi's name is actually spelt Rhythmi, like rhythm? OMG. It's even more painful...

    The Official Site also made me upset by revealing only one character. However, I love the mission artworks they showed. Pity they're so small.

    Is anyone here buying the guide. And could scan it? I really want to see all artworks in big size. The Internet LACKS Ranger 2 artworks. I see only starters, main characters, Dim Sun Grunts and Cover Artworks but no mission scenes!

    Starting a new post, as the old one was getting kind of cramped. And as I mentioned in those updates, it seems there's a lot of that kind of near-fourth wall breaking humor in the game.

    I don't see what's so bad about the "h" being in the right place, either. ...however you spelled it, was worse (looked even more awkward). And I'm not sure if there even are default names to select. Maybe I just didn't see the option.

    Default name appears when you don't give the name to your hero. When the name screen appears, you must just click "OK" (or something) without giving a name and the default name will appear.

    That's time to start the good ol' cookie competition.

    First person who reveals Hitomi's U.S. name gets a giant cookie.

    Can anyone, for God's sake start the game with a girl? If I had the game now, I would certainly do it! Just to see her name.
