Not sure if anybody posted these pics yet.

They are from Nier automata.

Not sure which version of Nier this came from.

And one from Yakuza that seemed to triggered one of the localizers.

My best guess with this one would be the remake of Replicant.

I also new that Automata had bad translation just due to playing the game in JP, I can't speak it at all but you can just tell that it is not right. One of the most obvious places I found it was during the second special/secret boss.

People begged Yoko Taro to make sure that his Nier: Automata wouldn't be the next Drakengard 3 style of release by 8-4. But sadly he couldn't do all that much about it since he doesn't know any English himself and can't check on the quality to make sure it was up to the original dialogue.

But seeing as they describe the Japanese mindset as this below, it's no wonder they keep destroying localizations.

If you want to know why Yakuza 4 remaster was censored.
That's why.

WAIT, this worthless cunt somehow got her fingers into PERSONA AND YAKUZA SERIES? Well that's good way to ruin someones day and it hasn't even truly started yet.
At least there's a silver lining, now we know which games no to buy and either torrent, or not even bother and just pass. I played both OG Persona 5 and Royal and did spot some western autism in the translations, but kinda endured it. As it seems in the recent years, this cunt got way worse. She will never stop being a laughingstock in my eyes because of the whole fiasco for turning Satoko's "Nii-Nii" to "Big Brudder". Seriously what did she smoke to come up with that? If I was ultra retarded and on half a dozen drugs I would be able to make a better translation for that.

that's the point of the forum man.
If you wanna help with writing a thread/compiling info on a localizer/company talk with @VidMasterEon

The more organized the info here, the easier it is to get to the general public and win them over.

I'm keeping my eye open for information. The problem at the moment is they are on a banning spree because they are now aware they are being monitored.
On the other hand, they seem to be blissfully unaware that there are more of us that stay incognito.

A game I was looking forward to released a vid and I saw this line
eng offical.JPG
The game is made by Koreans and some people in the comments are translating it very normal.

The offical jp, with how little Japanese I know seems normal.

Using youtube's auto translate comes up normal too so I'm guessing it is a case of funni localization.

and the other I've heard about is this guy https://twitter.com/casual_watson
