2004.09.28 Do you know where the sailors are?

Badly Translated Game: Do you know where the sailors are?

Astro Boy: Omega Factor GBA 4 out of 5 stars
GunGrave: Overdose PS2 2 out of 5 stars
Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow XBox 4 out of 5 stars

I don't understand the reason why they can't pay someone GREAT SUMS of money (*smile*) to properly translate the phrases from Japanese to Engrish. Did any of you experience the worse translation in a game before? Which game did you play?

Hey, have you guys heart about this Star Wars Galaxies protest thing?

Response: Apparently someone or some group of people learned out to duplicate credits on the game and proceeded to pay other players in tip with fake money. Sony caught wind of the situation and banned players who've exchanged the fake money, this affected innocent players who received the fake money.
