View Full Version : English Language Samurai Shodown 5 AES Petition

Gentlemen of the forum, I would like to address the current state of affairs that is going on with Playmore and the upcoming home release of Samurai Shodown 5. I have been told that there is no English language dialogue in the MVS version of this game. When the game is set to English mode there is no character intermissions, no character endings, and even part of the final stage is missing. Since we are to pay $335 for this release, I think that Playmore should do a translation for us. We are the English user base and I think that Playmore should do this for us. I personally donít want to shell out that kind of money and not even get something so inexpensive as an English translation.

The past translations have not been the best but at least we could follow the storyline. One of the most important parts to the Samurai Shodown series to me was the storyline and I donít think that it will help the game at all if the storyline is cut out. I think that it will greatly affect the sales of the game and is not good for the English speaking user base in general. Playmore could find an English professor and pay him say, $1,000 to do the translation. The English release will probably be over 300 copies so I donít think that they will take such a big hit in the financial department. Not putting an English language option in a game that is supposed to be an English release will hurt Playmore and the NeoStore financially. I do not plan on buying the game with out an English option. That is $335 that Playmore will lose right there. I have heard from about 10 other people who feel the same way. So Playmore is already out over $3,000 because of this. I donít think that a translation will cost that much to make so I think that Playmore will end up in the hole on this issue.

I know that in my past petitions I have been plagued by false names or by people saying that I am Dionís butt buddy. This petition, I hope, will not be plagued by such childish behavior. This is not about me but about you the English speaking Neo Geo fan. I am trying to help you by showing Playmore that we really do want this to happen. If you have a grudge against me, then donít take it out on the petition. If you do you are only insulting your neo brethren who support this noble cause. If you do wish to bash me, then send me a PM or email but donít bash my petition. I want this to happen and I am sure that many of you do as well. If we donít do something about it now, then Playmore probably wonít do English translations for any other games in the future. That will be a terrible blow to the English speaking neo geo fan base and I will not stand for it. I hope that you will not stand for it also and sign my petition. Thanks for your time and please sign my petition. Thanks for your time.

PS - you won't be able to view the names, I would have to pay some money so I used the standard petition which is free. I will post the names if you would like to see them. :)

I just wanted to remind everyone in the forum of the great "ignore" feature available on V-Bulliten. Ever since I enacted it against Makismo, he's a lot less annoying.

If you don't "ignore" you get to constantly notice his desperate cries for attention

Both of you are idiots. Bobak, why Shawn chose you as a moderator is beyond me. This is not about me and I don't give a shit about attention, I just want this to happen. If you don't believe me then that is too bad for you. I am doing this for the fans and not just for me. I think that we need to make a stand so don't listen to that idiot Bobak who doesn't know anything about the neo geo. he is just some idiot who thinks he knows everything.

He and some others here don't know me as well as you think. If you have been here for some time you would have noticed that I did a petition for meg counts on neo geo inserts. Guess what? Meg counts are now back on inserts. If you believed in that cause then you should believe in this one too. I don't want anymore people messing with this thread. I only want positive people who will fight for the cause. Thanks for your time.

I'm new here. Anyone care to enlighten me as to why this guy is such a pain? Is it because online petitions are 100% pointless (which is reason enough), or are there other reasons?

Although I don't wanna get involved...Bobak was chosen because he is a fair and all around cool guy.

So, can anybody tell me why the "English Language Samurai Shodown 5 AES Petition" is being driven by someone with a shaky grasp of both petitions and the English language? :spock:

What is that supposed to mean? I am very good at petitions - I would like to see you do better. I think that my English is very good. I am considered the best writer in my history class and I have all A's for your information. I don't see why you wouldn't want to support my petition because it is a good idea. I am just the person to run it you know. I think that everyone should sign it. Not trying an saying that it won't work won't do you any good. You people are too negative and you need a positive attitude. You won't get anywhere in life unless you fight for what you believe in. So show some support instead of hiding your head in the sand.

Okay, I looked at a lot of Makismo's posts. None of the ones I looked at seemed that interesting or offensive. Perhaps you should just tell me what your problem with him is instead of making me search through a thousand posts to find one or two posts.

Basically, he's been a "meanie" in the past, like he's been insulting and disrespectful to someone who died (a forum member and NeoGeo fan from here) because he didn't like him.

He also switched to some other forum as he got banned from here at some point, but it seems he got kicked from that other forum, and then begged Shawn to unban him from here... Which he did.
Now he's back, desperately trying to get accepted by others.

I wasn't there when all of that happened, but that's what I gathered...

I can tell you what they are all pissed about. I deal with NGF and I have said good things about them. The people of this board do not like NGF so they jump on me. They don't like NGF because Shawn does no like NGF. If Shawn does not like NGF then they do not like NGF. Since I like NGF they don't like me. It is pretty simple really. They call me a troll because of it and other various things.

To add to my list of crimes I had a serious dislike for a senior member named Jigen. He pissed on me all the tiome so I pissed back on him. I got banned two times because of him and as far as I am concerned, I only did what was needed. I overstepped my bounds when I said that I was glad that he was dead. Even though I meant every word of it I should have kept my big mouth shut. I said that i was sorry for my actions to Shawn and i was let back in. The board still dislikes me anyway even though what i did wasn't that big of a deal. I hope that answers your question. If you have any other questions then feel free to email or PM me. Thanks for your time.

Banning someone because they disagree with you? For shame! At any rate, I remember that post Stifu's referring to, I just didn't connect the names. I believe Makismo wholeheartedly apologized for what he said, and only received more insults in return.

Well, if someone says mean things about a recently departed guy who you were good friends with, I can see plenty of good reason to flame the hell out of him. But to hold a grudge against someone you don't know into eternity? Clearly this topic is not about Jigen (who I don't know well as he died shortly after I came to this board), yet you all instantly trash Makismo as if it was.

Look at it this way. I'm a socialist. Would you refuse to discuss the Neo Geo with me because our political ideologies are vastly different? Because we feel the world works a different way, you should purposely flame me when I try to bring up a discussion about video games?

If you blacklist people because you strongly disagree with them (be it because they insulted your dead friend of because you feel they are politically insane) the world would cease to function. True, it's not as important on message boards, but I'm sure everyone would like to be able to spear their mind without getting banned.

If you hate the guy, don't talk to him, but don't go out of your way to attack someone because an old really stupid post they made. That's just childish, it really is.

And for the record, it sounds to me like Makismo my really be an uber dork if it's true that he likes Neo Geo Freak.

Makismo has been previously banned from here about four times.

The last time was because of the things he posted about Jigen.
If memory serves me correctly, he had posted some really vile stuff in a memorial thread for Jigen. Bear in mind that Jigen's relatives had access to the thread, and were reading it.

The other three times he was banned were for being an obnoxious troll. He'd go off on long rants about how great NGF was, or how rotten Shawn and the Neo-store are.

The guy has never wholeheartedly apologized for anything. Everytime he's been banned, he's come back, apologized, and then proceeded to troll again.

Here's some stuff he posted over at the NGF boards. All of this stuff was posted within a week of rejoining us here at NG.com


Well, it sems that SNK-Capcom is no better than Neo-Geo.com. You see, for the post that I did above, I was banned for. I guess you can't make fun of worthless dead people and Shawn and get away with it. Freedom of speech is not allowed at either of these two sites. Avoid them like the plague.

Perhaps what I want is for them to respect me. I really don't understand why they dislike me so much overthere. I am also tired of them pissing on Dion in such a manner. The people over at Neo-Geo.com are really a bunch of idiots and I can't see why they are so stupid. It drives me nuts that they are actually alive. People like that shouldn't even be alive.

Shawn doesnĀft like anybody but himself. He only uses people to get what he wants from them. Once he is done using you he will toss you away. He has no honor or remorse for anyone. He thinks that everyone is lower than him because of his large collection. It seems that his head has grown too large over time and he has some sort of God complex. Perhaps at one time he was a civil human being but now he has turned into some kind of hateful wretch whose only purpose in life is to hurt others.

It's one thing to be indignant, but you have no sense of humility whatsoever. Perhaps hindsight will lend you the graces to know that not only should your mouth have never been opened in the past about someone's death, but that after the fact, it won't help trying to apologize and expect acceptance while simultaneously admiting the fact that you "meant" it, as well as the even more obvous fact that your mouth should be shut at all times if you can't conjure up some tact.

Good day.

You guys win. If the guy has been banned four times and regularly posts stuff of that magnitude of offensiveness, he should be banned for life. I'm sorry I defended him, I'll read more posts next time.
