my bedtime reading: The Curse of Kiseki: How One Of Japan's Biggest RPGs Barely Made It To America
It wasn’t long before the editors at XSEED realized just how much of a burden they’d put on their shoulders. At 1.5 million Japanese characters, the first Trails in the Sky was much bigger than anything they’d published before, more akin to a visual novel than a traditional RPG. There were hundreds of non-player characters, each with their own names and personalities and lines upon lines of dialogue to translate and edit. XSEED editor Jessica Chavez spent nine months crunching non-stop—14 hours a day, six days a week—just to get through it all.

“When I finally finished it I’d dropped ~10% of my body weight and was down to 99lbs,” she told me in an e-mail earlier this year. She said she cut off 18 inches of her hair “in some sort of retaliation for the headaches the weight of it had given me while working.”

If only more people had bought it. Perhaps because of the generic title or because the PSP was on its last legs in North America, FC was a retail flop. “It was actually quite a huge letdown based on how much work we put into it and how much work Falcom had put into it,” XSEED executive vice president Ken Berry told me during a recent interview. “At that point, both sides started to [wonder] if it was viable or not to continue the series.”

Over the next few months, thanks to disagreements over this bible and other key issues, the relationship between Dice and XSEED grew strained. Dice, dealing with anxiety and depression, would take weeks and even months to respond to Chavez’s requests. “I started dodging [Chavez’s] emails,” Dice told me. “I was taking forever to get back to her, the stress was piling on… Eventually in [early] 2014 she reached out to Robin [Light-Williams] and Robin got rather cross with me because he thought I was being lazy.”

That March, Dice took a knife to his chest. He later wrote about the experience in a blog post, explaining that he’d sunk into a cycle of depression and self-loathing triggered in part by his work on Trails in the Sky SC. “A thousand, thousand failures haunt me,” he wrote. “Failures that caused others pain, discomfort, distress. Failures so many I can no longer count them all.”

Chavez crunched and crunched for half a year, editing text until her eyes bled. She tweaked dialogue, fixed typos, and started correcting all of the terminology mistakes that remained in the script. She estimates that the script clocked in at 716,401 words, which is roughly the size of 10 novels. For context: the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy is 455,125 words. Tolstoy’s War and Peace (New American Library Version) is 587,287.

I reject the premise, but there is less wordiness on the whole and especially from companions.

been a while since i posted some of those, i got myself a new "chalet" and i implausibly won the outfit i've been wanting for so long on the marketplace two days ago (this shit is worth 30$ if you buy it with real money, i got it for 34 millions in game which is nothing) so seems like as good a time as any.

This is the house in a small port town. Actually i bought three houses. The door on the furthest right is another residence in itself and then there's one under that one i bought too. So there's no link between them other than from the inside but still. It'll make me feel like i have a proper mansion (houses are instanced so it's not like if you own one nobody can own it too)
Image

the door to the left has two floors. The one on the right is one flor with an open thing. And the bottom one is just a basement. I'll do kitchen and bedroom and all in the first. Alchemy lab in the second and probably storage in the basement. Or maybe switch those last two around.

In front of the door of the basement residence. This is the back of the whole "mansion". The opening where you see beams is part of the second house.
Image

View from right outside the front door
Image


View from sitting on the roof. The boat with white sails is mine. That fucker was an achievement in itself...you have to cut down wood for weeks to build that goddam thing.

Image


I'd show inside but....i havent' started moving in yet. Decorating and all. I have loads of pics of my main residence inside actually and i never think of putting them online. I took a LOT of time to decorate it.

On horse in front of the house. The cat isn't mine.
Image

closer look at my amazing new outfit. it comes with a hat too but i don't do hats. Serious wizards don't wear hats. Little known fact.

Image


Not featured in pics, my trusty crow. With this new outfit i can't take my staff out and have the crow land on my shoulder because the pose my char does with this outfit is different and the crow wants no part of it.


actually no i need to have a pic with the crow , fuck the staff (alt tab). there we go

I've frequently said i am addicted to video games. I mean i go insane if i can't play them for long periods of time. I use games to numb myself like others do drugs or alcohol. Recently i've been pretty creative and i realised the last thing i needed to do right now was try to play a new game because like BDO is still fine but im not that into it anymore that i wanna spend my whole day playing it, but if i picked up a new game that i end up being really into, i know what will happen, i'll put aside anything else. Or instead of doing that creative thing for 3 or 4 hours i'll just cut it down to 1 and pretend it's enough and just basically botch the whole thing. For this reason i dont think i'll play anything new before like fall at least. It's like "i could go to work....or i could spend the whole day at home smoking crack....hmmm" When faced with a good game i don't know what's good for me anymore. I take bad decisions.
