I wasn't actually going to bring this up, since it's one of those annoying nitpicky things... But what the hell?
I've been watching a lot of the Hoshi no Kirby anime lately (I can just about stand it in Japanese, without the crazy accents) and noticed that in it the phrase "Hoshi no Kirby" is used to refer formally to Kirby himself, meaning that "Kirby of the Stars" is probably a more accurate translation that "Kirby's Star".
Of course, it's not actually an error, since both are correct. This just seemed the best place to bring it up.
That's fair. NinDB's translation was a guess on my part
Unfortunately, until the anime this was never really explained. Sure, he lives on Popstar - but that wasn't named or depicted for a while, and from what we could gather, Kirby lived with other Dream Landers.
The anime seemed to change things again, so now he fell to Popstar on a Warp Star (so would be an "alien") and lives with Cappies. But I don't think they've ever been shown here, and I have never downloaded them to watch them... so I don't know if they ever went into more detail or anything.
I'm pretty sure they've never been shown here, but I got the first DVD boxed set from America some time ago... it was awful. Since then they started fansubbing episodes over at Rainbow Resort, but I've only seen as far as part one of the Grand Prix thing... They haven't gone into much more detail from what I've seen, but it appears that Kirby was created by Nightmare in the anime.

The graphic leading to 3PS #12 reads "Trauma Centre" instead of "Center". I know that's the correct British spelling of the word, but I'm pretty sure the game title isn't spelled that way even over here.

I was just scrolling through the Kazumi Totaka's Song Guide and happened to notice a little typo on the Luigi's Mansion entry... although I've (sadly) never played the game, I'm pretty it's Poltergust, not Poultergust
He's right... it should be Poltergust. It'd be different if it was just a generic word, but it's the name of something, and it's used over here as well as in America. So calling it the Poultergust isn't really much different that calling Marth "Mars".
I do agree with you. Just wanted to point out that it wasn't a typo but an instinctive response
On that point - the fact Marth was translated for years as "Mars" is really bizarre. During the end credits for the original Fire Emblem, all of the characters names are shown in English - and it says "Marth".
I'm guessing the fans didn't get that far in the game
Speaking of Fire Emblem, I realised the other day that I know next to nothing about it. I looked for fan translations of it some time ago, but none seemed to be complete. Time for another look, methinks...
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
