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...
Shrikeswind: Date of birth, August 30, 2022. I'm an uncle.

Shrikeswind: Just woke up and within like a half an hour my brother-in-law sends me two pics of the little rapscallion. Not sharing because I don't believe in posting baby pics on the Internet, but I will say he's clearly going to be a genius.

Shrikeswind: His name is Elliott, btw.

nocturnal YL: Good to hear! Best of wishes to you and to your sister's family.

Nester the Lark: The Japanese voice actor for Adol (of the Ys series), Yuji Kaji, will be making an appearance at Konami's TGS presentation to "represent the fans." In the past, Konami has showcased Falcom's games at TGS. I wonder if there will be more to it...

Nester the Lark: I'm reluctant to do spoiler discussions because if people are playing the game, they wouldn't want spoilers, and if they're not playing the game, they wouldn't be interested anyway.
Sept 3, 2022 9:00:36 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.

nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.
Sept 4, 2022 11:38:00 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.
Sept 4, 2022 19:04:34 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.
Sept 8, 2022 14:50:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.
Sept 8, 2022 14:51:39 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.
Sept 9, 2022 8:50:55 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...
