OMG! ZIRIA! ZIRIA!! ZIRIA!!! IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED!! 34 YEARS LATER!! The epic/legendary Tengai Makyou/Far East of Eden: Ziria JRPG has finally been localized! Supper the Subtitler struck again! Simply unstoppable, NOTHING can prevent him from TOTAL PCECD localization domination!!!! WHACHA GONNA DO BROTHER?!?!

Supper writes: Tengai Makyou: Ziria is the debut entry of the Tengai Makyou series. Published by Hudson Soft for the PC-Engine CD-ROM² system in 1989, it was the first RPG ever released on CD and served as a showcase for the new medium, with elaborate visuals and voice-acting far beyond what any competing title could offer. Its success led it to become the first in a popular series, very little of which was ever released outside Japan.

Wow, sorry I only noticed this now Sanhime! This forum is mostly left around for history/an archive, I never expect new posts so I don't actually bother to look!

Anyway, yeah, it'd be nice to do another PC Engine project if I finish Emerald Dragon! I was actually contacted by 2 translators/editors on Twitter who are interested in working on it, but I didn't wanna lead them on - I made it clear it's a slight possibility only AFTER I finish Emerald Dragon.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you're doing well! : )

I'm close to rating this one of the greatest PC Engine History/Legacy tours I've ever seen, it's definitely up there! Epic, pretty damn good! ShmupJunkie's selection of the best PCE music really helps, and now with Book/Part II it'll really seal the deal! He cleverly used the Ys Book I & II CD intro to take you into the past of this console's rich history which, while very successful in Japan, unfortunately lost out in the US due to several factors he touches upon.

Title: "Dragon Slayer: The Legend of Heroes II"
Alt: "Dragon Slayer: Eiyuu Densetsu II"
Platform: PC Engine Super CD-Rom2
Produced by: NihonFalcom/Hudson 1992 potential? Recently on a whim I decided to tinker! To my surprise, the text/print system was the ~SAME as Emerald Dragon! So, could I port the 8x12 font/mod work here also? YES!!! And voila!

I also learned there's a control code space character of only 4 pixels width, so instead of using the common ANSI 0x20 char code which causes a spacing of 8 pixels wide via an 8x16 font, you use 0x60 to cause 4 pixels of width. That's how I got the 1st & 3rd lines to fit in the last image. Look at "What if I told you" and "under the control of" for example being squeezed tight to fit in a line. Will be useful at times and hopefully is also mirrored with the Emerald Dragon message/font functions! If you can never have a variable-width font, this is a somewhat useful fallback/alternative.

Localization potential? Recently on a whim I decided to tinker! To my surprise, the text/print system was the ~SAME as Emerald Dragon! So, could I port the 8x12 font/mod work here also? YES! Voila!

#1) A first-look teaser of the Emerald Dragon [PC Engine CD] English localization project has been published!!!  8) Took YEARS to get here...

#2) I got an email from David Michel, the PCE/PC-FX emulator author, informing me I had won his PC Engine CD contest!!! How about that ?? Hard to believe he's still around and running contests at A really unexpected bonus! The game is Neo Metal Fantasy, a JRPG.

I think this works pretty good, although I'll have more OGG to WAVE extraction tweaks to implement soon to achieve perfection. To get you playing right now though, it's ready! :)

(The future tweaks I want involve skipping OGG extraction and decoding to WAVE by directly reading from the EXE and not first extracting the OGGs to the target folder (improved speed tweak) and other sophisticated tweak issues with the OGG decoder I want just in the name of perfection.)

If you have any creative ideas on what to title it, lemme know.

Ys2EpicBGMSoundMod.exe (My best idea so far and probably final)
Ys2EpicBGMusicMod.exe (Hmm, has potential, less characters, says the same thing)
Ys2RyoBGMSoundMod.exe (Alternatively maybe Ryo in the filename might make it more marketable)
Ys2RyoOSTMod.exe (Shorter alt)
Ys2RyoSoundMod.exe (Shorter alt)
Ys2RyoMusicMod.exe (Shorter alt)

"ys2c-altst.exe" <-- (Original, BORING idea by XXXSEED Cock-Flasher Jeff... See how someone might not give a shit?)

Beyond the Installer filename, there are the various internal titles I used:

'"Ys I Complete" Epic/Ultimate BGM Soundtrack Mod'
"Presenting: The Ryo Yonemitsu Epic BGM Soundtrack Mod!"
Upgrade Ys I Complete to the epic PC Engine/TurboGrafx-CD soundtrack, The Ryo Yonemitsu Cut!
"The PCE Turbo-Powered Ryo Yonemitsu Soundtrack Cut!"

Oh and prepare yourself for a bit of a Splash screen and classic voice-acting when you start the patch BTW, it's a special added touch I also thought of. :)

Ah yeah, I was reminded of that work a few years ago and I actually tried to rebuild the patchers again, make 'em a little better WITH the added bonus of a special love letter to XXXSEED Games and the psycho lying criminal cheat that you speak of, Jeff Nussbumin' "Psycho DeuceBag" (AKA XXXSEED's Cocky Cock-Flasher!), but I didn't quite get around to finishing it all up nicely...

Here's the Ys I Complete rebuild of it, I just uploaded for you a working, but unfinished copy as far as docs, and everything I wanted it to do. Regardless, it'll install the legendary PC Engine/TurboGrafx-CD Ryo Yonemitsu soundtrack just fine over the old MIDI default PC version.

I'll upload the old Ys II version tomorrow or if not later.

Thanks for stopping by again, been years! ;)

Kickstarter-triumph "Battle Princess Madelyn" Released - Inspired by the NEC SuperGrafx (December 6, 2018)!

Classic retro gameplay for a whole new era!

* Trü NEC SuperGrafx Origin Story: [Developer] Chris' daughter Madelyn loved to watch him play Daimakaimura/Ghouls ‘n Ghosts on his SuperGrafx which led to her wanting to be IN the game! So eureka, dad's solution was to make her the star of her own!!!

* With the retro feel of Ghouls ‘n Ghosts and Wonder Boy 3, this will conjure up memories of the arcade era with its Unity driven hand-drawn pixel art

* 10 levels with five stages each, they're replayable with no starting over (that is unless you want to)

* Two modes including story (by a professional children's author) and arcade (for the experts)

* Hidden collectibles with extra rewards, weapons are upgradeable depending on your armour, which you can find through the blacksmith in story mode

* Madelyn's pet ghost dog "Fritzy" acts as both a weapon and a way to solve puzzles, allowing the player to tackle boss fights and maneuver puzzles.

* Weapons are specific to certain areas, providing access to secret locations

>> Kickstarter History/Game Discussion thread.  <<

11 season one of a new NetFlix show, Altered Carbon, which may or may not be renewed. It has SciFi elements of Blade Runner, Matrix, Fifth Element, and some Zardoz given it explores quasi immortality if you're rich enough to keep clones around, periodically "back up" your brain contents to an implanted storage device, etc.

Season one is only 10 episodes so you can watch the whole thing over the weekend. I enjoyed it well enough although the plot could've used some more work. It's mostly a hardboiled detective/cop kind of show.

There are some SciFi cameos like the Max Headroom actor who plays a weird host of an underground fightclub ring, and Daniel Bernhardt who plays a type of relentless space cop/soldier - he's the cheap Jean Claude Van Damme knockoff who did "Bloodsport 2," and the main sunglass-wearing Matrix agent in "Matrix: Reloaded" since "Mr. Smith" went rogue.

Anyway, you won't be blown away or anything, I don't think, but it kept me very interested all the way through so definitely worth checking out for the casual SciFi movie fan. I give it a thumbs up!

Heya Shakku, yeah, cool, thanks for marketing it here! 100% approved! While I would've preferred the PC Engine Ziria CD was targeted first, so be it!

Anyway, good to see you stop by again, take care! :)

Hi WaveRider, surprised to see you wander about here again, heh heh. :)

Well, the first thing I'd say is to register on, that's one of the last hangouts for us PC Engine fans besides the Facebook groups and where you'll find some modders and other options.

Second, a guy called chop5 there used to make and sell these ribbon cable adapters that you slip on a PCE HuCard to circumvent the region lock. I dunno if these are still available but it's the cheapest option.

Third, you can find a modder to send your system to mod a US/Japan region switch. Steven Hanley, Shawn, BlueBMW, Keith Kourage are all good guys that can do that.

Finally there is the Turbo Everdrive flash cart, the one that rules them all! This is also my solution as I own one. You load the whole NEC library on a 2GB micro SD card, you got a US/PCE region switch, everything works, you can even patch some PCE games to English and try other fan creations, end of the story!

If you were registered years back on PCEFX, we had group buy efforts to buy Turbo Everdrives on wholesale if you can get 10+ people to join. It's $60 bucks for 10+, so the manager would collect all the money from the buyers, make the order with krik, and after receiving the bulk shipment, he'd ship each out individually. That's how we avoided the $79 retail or other mark ups like at game cave or whatever.

And that's all I got for a thorough answer... :) If I procrastinated I might never have responded to ya so I try to reply within days of seeing something if time permits.

I haven't done sufficient updates to keep up with recent events but as many XSEED fans on Twitter know the company was BUSTED bigtime for cheating Brittany Avery after being fired with the disgraced WyrdWad pedo predator, Tom-chan "The KKK Witch" Lipschultz. This led to the fashionably flamboyant Executive Commander Sterling to produce this most excellent video lambasting XSEED for cheating people!** Boycott X.X.XSEED Games Facebook Page!
"As far as I'm concerned, we just elected NightWolve to office. And that prospect absolutely terrifies me..." - Tom "WyrdWad" Lipschultz, xXxSEED Games (Nov. 8th, 2016, D.J. Trump Election Victory)Are republican customers "irredeemable" or "deplorable" to X.X.XSEED Games? Should they take their money elsewhere, are they unwanted, especially if they voted Trump??Has Tom-chan "The KKK Witch!" Lipschultz unwisely politicized his petty, criminal, unAmerican company, divisively pitting democrats against republicans in the Falcom fanbase? Will he ever be held accountable for all the times he has embarrassed XXXSEED?Hypothetical: Does a potential job applicant at XXXSEED face bigoted, political discrimination if he/she can be outed as republican? Is this out of the realm of possibilities considering Comrade Tom-chan's clear California blacklisting/blackballing/bigoted mentality? I honestly don't think so, and FYI, it's illegal under federal law, though I doubt he and most of his coworkers understand that...
Quote from: Tom "WyrdWad" Lipschultz of xXxXxSeed Games
"As far as I'm concerned, we just elected NightWolve to office. And that prospect absolutely terrifies me...'s impossible not to draw parallels between the Trump of today and the Adolf Hitler of the 1930s.
XXXSEED XXXCESS: Tom-chan plays the libelous Hitler card on Donald J. Trump! SHOCK!!!! A "cute" NightWolve=Trump=Hitler "equation" to boot, an "exceptional" election gift, all for yours truly! Thanks Tom!!! Love ya ole buddy!
Source: xXxSEED_Tom_Lipschultz_NightWolveTrumpHitler_Libel.jpg

Today, the unhinged meltdown by the criminal X.X.XSEED Games employee, Tom-chan "The XXXSEED Henchman" Lipschultz, is now complete! "President NightWolve" has officially been sworn in! History has been made! Let us move forward in the business of making America great again, no, GREATER than it has ever been and for ALL Americans! Let Love Trump ALL Hate! I am truly humbled, thank you and God bless you, God bless America!!!!!!! :P

Note: This lying, libelous Facebook post was never meant for your eyes... Comrade Tom-chan locked it for Friends-only, asked that nobody share it, but somebody betrayed him yet again (e.g. his deletion from Seldane's forum) by leaking a screenshot. Also, I've been assured by Wikileaks that the leaker is NOT Russian, NO government is responsible for this leak! We can't reveal our sources for their protection, especially now that XSEED has a psycho-stalker-doxer helping them, but we really don't want XSEED running around stoking Russia-phobia or blaming "Nazis" under their beds, etc... ;)

Background: Upon Donald Trump's Nov. 8th election victory, in one of the most diabolical defamatory tactics I've seen, the criminal employee at xXxSeed Games -- who criminally cheated/exploited/abused 4 Ys fan translation projects (by fans FOR fans, NOT corporations!) to unfairly, unjustly hijack 24,891 pre-translated strings (Jeff had ZERO consent to transition our free fan projects into commercial endeavors in secret collusion! He NEVER would've received THOUSANDS of free/slave work hours under FAN TERMS if he disclosed his lunatic self-serving views with the FIRST project that he could make secret business deals behind the backs of his partners with only the text he typed after getting the benefit of somebody else's free work hours/time on this earth! That's worker abuse/exploitation AND IP Rights violations on my proprietary translation software which was ONLY given to him under fan terms, yet he used it one last time for the secret exports to XSEED Games for commercial/profiteering terms, then kept 100% of the money and disappeared into the night for YEARS! Literally THE MOST disgusting localization company in history!!!) -- took to his Facebook account to equate me/NightWolve to Donald Trump, before then equating Trump to Adolf Hitler, the WWII genocidal dictator who went on a world conquest and extermination spree!!! How original, right ? Everybody I hate is Hitler! SHOCK!

Realize the full diabolical nature of what this libelous criminal did... He's trying to exploit/harness all the ultra-partisan and divisive hatred for Trump (which has led to vandalism/violence/arson!) and redirect it right at my doorstep, and it worked, a psycho-stalker-doxer answered the call with a dox job after reading it, one of XXXSEED's Senran Kagura customers who in bizarre fashion also spammed me on Twitter with his pedophilia fantasies and an anime porn GIF, all to creep me out... He's a kindred spirit with Tom-chan who also recognizes the "importance" of protecting animated pedo porn to, you know, "protect real children..."

However, despite this whole unfortunate ordeal, in the spirit of unity, bipartisanship, building bridges, coming together after a tough election battle, I decided in magnanimous fashion to assure X.X.XSEED Games on Twitter that I, ladies and gentlemen, intend to be a president for ALL Americans! ALL Americans, whether in red states OR in blue states as there is ONLY the United States of America!!! :P

"As far as I'm concerned, we just elected NightWolve to office. And that prospect absolutely terrifies me...'s impossible not to draw parallels between the Trump of today and the Adolf Hitler of the 1930s...

...And for the love of all that is holy, please stop calling Hillary Clinton 'Crooked Hillary.' Set an example for the American people: don't use derogatory nicknames just because you don't like someone. if nothing else, it's rude and disrespectful.

Expert Analysis: Tom-chan equates NightWolve to Trump, then Trump to Hitler, a NightWolve<=Trump<=Hitler "equation" if you will... "Calling" your target Hitler versus "equating" is a distinction without a difference! He played the libelous fearmongering Hitler card! AND THEN!!! Seconds later, he demands YOU stop calling Hillary Rotten Nixon "Crooked Hillary" to set a good example for manners... HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! How about Tom-chan first stop equating the republican targets of his political Far Left hack wrath to "Hitler" because he doesn't like them ? If nothing else, it's not only rude and disrespectful, it's libelous character assassination/defamation on a FAR GREATER scale than something like "crooked..." MASSIVE cognitive dissonance and hypocrisy 101, brought to you by XXXSEED Games!

If manchild Tom-chan wants to levy *rational* criticism on Trump's policies, he can do so without invoking Hitler but he wants to spread fear, hysteria, panic, paranoia, and hatred for the president (AND FOR ME)... If he feels Trump is a demagogue, say so, but why become a demagogue yourself to "expose it" and skirt libel laws in the process by invoking a WWII genocidal monster ?? These and MANY MORE questions he'll never have to answer for... He also tried to hide behind acknowledging Godwin's Law, the weasel that he is, which is about stopping reckless/perpetual Hitler libel/insults - we call that having it both ways!!! Comrade Tom-chan...he's a special, exceptional breed, that's for sure! THE "exceptional testicle" of the localization industry... Quite interesting he was thinking of me on election night and donated this unhinged rant to Facebook, heh...

2020 - What does Brittany Avery (Hero Hatsuu) have to say about Tom-chan "the KKK Witch," her former co-worker, after both were fired in late 2018 ? Well, we have the Falcom discord to thank for these revelations:

1) Brittany says Tom Lipschultz is a "top tier moron" that "should've been fired years ago..." OH MY GOD, YESSS! I know I've been saying it for years, but to actually get confirmation someone INSIDE XSEED felt the same is incredible!!!

2) Brittany says she called Tom "an asshole" to his butt-ugly disgusting face, said never to speak to her again being very furious with his protest warrior stunt of leaking the "KKK Witches" joke that unintentionally references a US terrorist group but was merely meant as a word play on "NKK Switches," a company in Japan, with no idea by the developer what KKK can mean outside of Japan!

Rebuttal Forthcoming. I hate to spread his libel before defending myself, but I'll eventually address his lying and distortions when mood and time permit me. I have decided to conclude Tom-chan is just as much a sociopath as Jeffrey the Cocky Cock-Flasher is given the same delusional denials and pathological lying liar behavior that this manchild engages in.

Hi Shakku, glad to hear my promo post might've led to a purchase, the $10 sale price is over though (back to $15). I also purchased the SNES30 Gamepad made by a few days ago for Shovel Knight, and it seems good (is very close to the original SNES version), though I had trouble booting it in keyboard mode which offers the most compatibility with games as opposed to standard USB joystick mode.


Prepare to taste justice...SHOVEL JUSTICE that is!! :) For only $9.99 at while on sale ($5 off from the regular price), why not ??

I had been wanting to buy this game for some time now after playing it at Best Buy many months ago and found myself actually! It's more than just a nod to classic retro gaming goodness like Megaman, Zelda II, etc. it actually had help from the original Megaman composer, Manami Matsumae, who wrote 2 tracks for it!!! This heavily influenced my decision to buy it, even though I'm very backlogged and rarely make time to play a game in full (barely one per year).

Can you dig it ? I SAY AGAIN, CAN YOU DIG IT ?? You know, the last knight that made fun of his shovel, well, he's not laughing anymore, let's just put it that way... :P

So, funny enough, while visiting my GOG account to actually make the purchase, I noticed I had Inbox notifications and I found 2 people had messaged me about "good ole" XSEED->XGREED Games... Hah!! You can read what I wrote in full at my special donation to XSEED, my boycott page:

The unjust criminality of Tom Lipschultz, Jeff Nussbaum, Ken Berry Wrong, etc. under the banner of this "X.X.XSEED Games" outfit has NOT gone unnoticed folks! You can't fool all of the people ALL of the time, most especially with the mountain of bullshit "excuses" that Tom has concocted and showered the Internet with to defend all the shenanigans that transpired! These people really are petty, disgusting and I've never seen anything like this embarrassing company before...

XSEED's resident bozo, Thomas "WyrdWad" Lipschultz, pushing an unlicensed/illegal/untaxed repro/bootleg "business" on his Youtube account... SHOCK!!
Thomas "WyrdWad" Lipschultz, the disgusting, hypocritical, bigoted criminal cheat of X.X.XSEED Games uploaded this recent video with his 'WyrdWad' Youtube account where he openly promotes a for-profit unlicensed/illegal/untaxed bootleg/repro "business" for the retro MSX2 platform!!! For reference, their pay-to-play "business" websites are:,, or

While the particular game he's pimping is indie, made by for-profit fans (which normally is considered "evil" in his fanatical fan credo anti-capitalist commie mindset), it has a copyright violation issue: The pay-to-play profiteers didn't get a license from the band Depeche Mode, thusly stole the melody of one of their hit songs, "Just Can't Get Enough" for use in a for-profit/commercial cart product... Compare the melody with his uploaded video... Also, do you think proper sales taxes are collected and reported by this gang ?? ARE THEY PAYING THEIR FAIR SHARE ?? ARE THEY SQUARE WITH ALL TAX/COMMERCE LAWS ?? YOU KNOW, JUST ASKIN'!!!

I realize the game is homebrew by fans and it'd probably be square with the law if they hadn't ripped off Depeche Mode, but if you also look at the website's blogspot, you'll find old Konami games that are being repro'ed... A few of the front and center games on the main site are fan ports of professional games which also would've been done without a license, now packaged up in nice pretty plastic ready for fans to fork over cash in an unlicensed/untaxed pay-to-play scheme! So yeah, upon further examination, it is a repro-selling outfit per its name, not all the games are innocent indie fan creations and the one he pimped would earn a copyright strike for ripping off Depeche Mode...

Alternate Title: "Ladies' Man Lipschultz" :P
Random XSEED customer getting "charmed" by him:

To be clear, MY personal position is irrelevant, I act as the reporter here! I wouldn't give a rat's ass normally, and there are some nice bootlegs out there, I own some that were donated to me, but THIS MONSTER right here tried to viciously incite the public against me before he was hired by XSEED Games on similar grounds! His hypocrisy and criminality are the issue here!

Tom and "power trolls" like Psycho Kirsten "omgfloofy" Miller attempted to hypocritically torment and browbeat me down for thought crimes in "violation" of their fanatical "fan credo" ideology! "Get a license if you wanna sell, cooperate with the fan community, it's supposed to ALWAYS be free!!! COOPERATE OR RAWWWRRRR!!!" You know the fanatical types out there with their insufferable self-serving moralizing, hypocritical lectures, and worst case they come in certifiable lunatic flavors like the patch leaker, Pyscho PruvMeRong from GameFAQs/4chan! It's all partly why the bigot used his pathetic company to punish me! And now, now you find the corrupt bastard promoting an illegal/unlicensed/untaxed business that HE likes and gosh golly that makes it all A-OK, so it's newsworthy in my book!

Conclusion: F*CK THIS GUY!!!! Seriously, F*CK THIS AHOLE!!!!! Nothing but an arrogant, petty, small-time dirtbag that used his disgusting company for revenge to make his vengeful self feel good in life... That's right, I said it, a petty ass dirtbag, just like Jeff! And the fact is, XSEED really is a disgrace in the videogame publishing world, I genuinely am disgusted it tied Falcom and the Ys series in the same house that publishes weird, questionable, violent stripping and pedo-pandering underage-big-boob girl games, along with their 4 petty criminal sneak/cheat operations on Ys fan translations that they STILL refuse to admit was divisively, criminally cheating one party over another, the lying hacks that they are!! You have NO decency sir, I award you NO points, and may God have mercy on your soul!

Copyright Violation Report Filed Today.

Alright, I got around to reporting XSEED to the proper people who are actually located near Torrance, California, so if they care about protecting their IP and dinging XSEED, they could easily do it! Inter-state legal jurisdiction issues are NOT a problem! It's still a .0000001% chance, but baby steps, you have to try instead of not trying at all... Persistence, determination, etc. are key even when the odds are stacked against you and the disgusting, criminal profiteering cheats will always have the upper hand!

XSEED thinks they can step on people with impunity, i.e. get away with it, so you have to make them regret their callousness, arrogance, stubbornness, cruelty, etc. I have no regard for this "company" whatsoever, ZERO, they deserve the same fate as Working Designs, and BTW they actually burned bridges with Victor Ireland some time back on a Lunar localization, so if you look closely, you'll find they make enemies and burn bridges left and right, etc. with their unprofessional behavior (e.g. John Sears, the 1st Legend of Heroes translator). They're a bunch of embarrassing clowns and there are more cases to prove it beyond taking my word for it or looking at just my situation with them!

I'd like to report a copyright violation to your legal department. For the purposes of copyright, I understand that you are the legal owner of the 1982 song "ManEater" by your client "Hall & Oates" ? I was directed by the official Hall & Oates Facebook account to here.

So to begin:

* The copyright violation was perpetrated by a company called XSEED Games, located near you in Torrance, California. Here is the full address info:

3655 Torrance Blvd, Suite 140
Torrance, CA 90503

* This animated screenshot below by me captures the copyright violation involving a line from your client's iconic song, "ManEater." The plagiarized text verbatim is: "Uh-oh, here she comes... Watch out, boy, she'll chew you up!"

* The videogame in question titled "Ys I & II Chronicles+" that uses your copyrighted material is purchased on the Steam platform here, selling for $14.99:

So, I think that concludes my report unless you have further questions. I'd like to see them prosecuted if you take your IP seriously as they criminally cheated me when it came to thousands of my work hours, translation software, etc. but I don't feel I can justify the financial costs in addition to the tricky circumstances to have pursued legal action. In seeing what they did here, I took an interest in reporting it to you in the hope that justice comes around their way for other illegal actions, however "innocent enough" that they thought it was.

* For reference, this was my original public report when I discovered their violation:

Yes, Jeff "Call-me-Psycho DeuceBag!" Nussbaum's sister genuinely apologized for the bigoted monster! That's worth something I suppose...
I did report Jeff to his sister via email years ago, but got no confirmation, and I wanted to report him to his father (wanted him to know what a bastard he brought into this world), but he died before that could happen unfortunately... So via Facebook on July 11, 2016, I had a successful exchange with his sister. I wanted somebody in his family to know what a criminal monster he is since he callously opted to remain unapologetically silent for so many years, play stupid about it all! He believes he should've just gotten to escape with silence, aside from his lying, libelous 2011 hit-piece on HardcoreGaming101 thanks to that destructive maniac John Szczepaniak (a Thomas Lipschultz' buddy). He also attacked me at least once on XSEED corporate forums, if you can believe that! I know his wife is aware also, but she's got nothing to say about her criminal husband naturally (stuck with him for better or worse).

Anyway, below is our exchange and her apology seems pretty sincere. I opted to redact her name as a courtesy. Now since Jeff had been trashing both her and his mother at his NeoGeo c*ck-flashing stomping grounds and on Facebook (he talks to me like he talks to his mother, funny enough, all tough guy, "Hey. You. Yes, you."), I was already aware of his estrangement with his family which she mentions... No surprise they don't speak to each other, right ? I should've paid attention to things regarding his malcontent bridge-burning nature or background-checked him more and maybe I would've realized I shouldn't have had ANYTHING to do with this monster far earlier on! Too late for me, but I report these things so no other fool ever works with him again, much less Tom Lipschultz of XSEED and Psycho Kirsten Miller, etc. Any of those who support the criminal self-serving/arbitrary/greedy translator "master/slave cheat principle" (the translator becomes the 100% master owner, while the programmer is but a mere "slave" to be exploited/abused in commercialization opportunities in a "too bad sucka" fashion...).

What better place to showcase a recent meme I created in his honor via his own words, ode to the Psycho DeuceBag, the callous, cocky c0ck-flasher, emphasis on the "cocky":

General / What is Pokemon Go ??
« on: Jul. 12, 2016, 11:09:26 PM »
I don't know what is Pokemon Go, wasn't sure I wanted to, but fortunately The Onion has provided some answers to this question for us ignoranuses.

I haven't done sufficient updates to keep up with recent events but as many XSEED fans on Twitter know the company was BUSTED bigtime for cheating Brittany Avery after being fired with the disgraced Tom-chan "The KKK Witch" Lipschultz. This led to the fashionably flamboyant Executive Commander Sterling to produce this most excellent video lambasting XSEED for cheating people!** Boycott X.X.XSEED Games Facebook Page!
Is X.X.XSEED [Lame] Games waging a "war on women" of all ages, from underage teens and up ? Hmmmm...Does X.X.XSEED Games pander to animated ped0philia-loving pedo-perverts ?  :-\Did XSEED really "cheat" that NightWolve guy or is he just "crazy" ? I'm undecided. They seem like such friendly people, like Tom...I guess it all just depends on what the meaning of "cheat" is... Sigh, so confusing, who to believe here...
Is XSEED waging a "war on women" of all ages, from underage teens and up ? Recall the Huffington-Puffington Post article on their stripping game whereby some in the feminist camp would say yes... Do they pander to pedo-pervs at some level, however small or not ? We'll have a bit of a look at what one of their customers said.

First, let's recap, (1) we know that Thomas "WyrdWad" Lipschultz used his company for revenge against another Falcom/Ys fan that he was feuding with before being hired by the company, (2) that they're criminal cheats who'll exploit the fan community and the free work hours that were done in the past for fan purposes so they can save some time and a buck or two in localization costs! (3) We also know Tom was a highly animated animated-child p0rn0gr@phy defender way before working for XSEED Games... You can find his activist posts trying to get people to lobby the Japanese government not to pass restrictions against cartoon pedo-p0rn0gr@phy back when such legislation came up. Recall his quote, "And yes, I do defend animated child p0rn0gr@phy under freedom of expression and am PROUD to do so!" So yes, you could say he is "highly animated" on such subjects with that big mouth of his... ;)

Now as people know, I'm staging a boycott because this is a bigoted, arrogant, stubborn company that refuses to apologize and correct the injustices they perpetrated against me in their shameful, illegal Ys script acquisition deals that led to my lying, conniving, thieving, scheming, criminal translator, Jeff "Call-me-Psycho DeuceBag!" Nussbaum, pocketing 100% corporate profit/credit for 4 translated results he was in possession of given our paperless fan partnership/organization, that is, due to thousands of my IT/tech work hours for Japanese text and image extraction/preparation and translation software/etc... They actually broke the law in their commercialization efforts, but literally DO NOT CARE so long as NightWolve "got exactly what he deserved, NOTHING," it's all good! They think cheating me is BETTER PR/public relations than not... That's STILL the malicious mentality that you're dealing with here, monsters without ANY remorse/empathy for the hurt they caused, disgusting as it is!! It's ironic how Lipschultz became part of the "evil corporation" and used it for evil being he was a bigoted anti-capitalist commie decrying the evils of capitalism once upon a time...

Per my boycott, I can't judge these "games" of theirs since I don't buy their products, am NOT a fan, and I advocate said boycott until (1) they publicly apologize for cheating me and (2) properly credit me in the Ys games in question! How hard is that ?? HOW HARD IS THAT ?? To the shills that pretend this is crying over spilled milk, that's a LIE - they could make peace with me tomorrow and correct the crediting in the Steam releases in a day or two! Instead they choose defiance daily, thus I do too! That's how it goes! If it was too late to fix this, THEN you could bark at me to "get over it" and demand I cease negative comments about them... But, they continue to refuse on a daily basis, which means they do not learn from their past and if they truly believe they did nothing wrong, we should worry they could do this again to somebody else in the future! I believe in accountability, even with a pathetic videogame company such as this one!

To the point, it's great when I can find other people that have no connection to my grievances and are willing to point out that this is a disgusting company in their opinion for other reasons. Enter Sean of Minnesota, a father of a 4 year-old daughter who was willing to criticize XSEED, tell them what he thinks of this "Senran Kagura 2" game they recently localized! I, ladies and gentlemen, on the other hand have officially been blocked from posting on their main Facebook page even though I never posted there since 2010 (I think)... The troll behind the XSEED account answering him back is none other than Thomas Lipschultz. I recognize his writing and line of thinking anywhere - he likely blocked me. However, I can still post in the FB page of the pedo-perv Senran Kagura 2 game (my post is still not deleted, am surprised)! Wonder why ?

I love how Lipschultz reminds him that it's simply "his opinion..." Well duh, to quote Maddox, who else's would it be ?? Hahahaha!!!!

"That we cheated you, NightWolve, is simply your opinion (hint hint, it has no weight, we don't care, it's mostly limited to, you know, just YOU!), you didn't translate a single word!! You were just a text delivery boy, you will NEVER, NEVER be credited, mwahahahaha!!! You delivered text from point A to point B which constitutes a 'service' at best! As for IP Rights violations, your software being used for commercial purposes to export the translations, GIVE ME A BREAK, it was just a poor man's Microsoft Notepad/Word equivalent, NOBODY had to respect your copyright/IP on it, NOBODY, least of all Jeff or us, mwahahahahaha!!!!! Who cares, cry me a river, just suck it up, move on, get over it, get over it, GET OVER IT!!! We won, you lost!!!!!"

The rest speaks for itself. So yeah, it's good to see more people speaking up about this disgusting criminal cheat of a company for their own reasons. It does seem there's an intersection with their criminal/immoral/unethical behavior in how they criminally cheated me and the type of games they choose to localize. There's a disconnect that's there... They're, in their mind, "above" our common social mores, values, good taste, and even laws if they can get away with it...

Can you think of other companies that would make enemies of fans of their products such as what they did ?? I cannot... I don't understand their continued defiance in providing a remedy, that is, what they gain by it... I can only guess it's vindictive satisfaction because the other possibilities don't make much sense...

X.X.XSEED Games, ladies and gentlemen, living up to their rip-off of a name... ;) Give 'em a round of applause, especially to Lipschultz! Ain't he a great guy, that Tom ??

Wow, the embarrassment and shame he's brought to this company, I've never seen anything comparable like it elsewhere in all honesty and yet he STILL has a job there! His behavior is rewarded/tolerated! How this lying, cheating criminal monster pulled this all off (same goes for Jeff) I'll never really know!!!!

General / Re: What are YOU watching on Youtube at the moment?
« on: May. 19, 2016, 10:55:33 PM »
What would a Bruce Lee versus Jean Claude Van Damme match look like ?? Works out being pretty cool actually:

Heya Jiza, heh, I still get surprised when I see a new post here now and then. I technically was supposed to end the "forum" gig after "Retro ISO Gaming Guild" as activity/membership dried up when I stopped producing PCE archives and the Ys stuff alone never was enough by itself (given competitors)... When it all stopped being fun, and instead became a responsibility, a chore, plus an unwanted association, it was time to move on, so I shut it down.

Using a forum model is still technically wrong for me, I still trapped myself with "" while Facebook and Twitter are better suited to me, but I wanted some kind of engine to continue to distribute my software given my legacy and have something of my own to occasionally blog on, rare as it is. I figured the forum aspect could just be informative sections on the Ys and other patches, and one general section just in case, and that could justify a "forum/blog" of sorts. But yeah, that I get a posting visitor now and then surprises me. ;)

Anyway, back to the subject. Yeah, there's something lame about this line in the Ys world. I didn't consider "tacky" but that's an interesting choice word for it. Now the really funny thing is if these bozos didn't get licensed permission since it's a word-for-word line plagiarized from the song, unlicensed usage for a commercial product is technically illegal, regardless if you find it "innocent" enough... It would be great if the copyright holder gave a shit after it gets reported to the right email address, but it's a long shot as I mentioned.

To be clear, I wouldn't care about this under normal circumstances, neither would most people, but this is the company that exploited my translation software, recruitment of a translator, Japanese script/image extraction techniques, marketing, general IT work, in other words, all of the thousands of my work hours that were done for free as a fan under fan circumstances that NEVER would've been done for their commercial operation had I known they'd get to cheat me down the road the way that they did in conspiracy with a backstabbing ex-translator/partner and the warring ahole bigot who the company hired and who pitched the idea, etc. It was an unjust enrichment, exploitation, and technically illegal given my translation software, all of these things, whether examined morally, ethically, or legally, etc.

So yeah, you can't just use other people's writing material like that to put jokes in your game or whatever other entertainment media that it is without licensing the usage... How many work hours did the Hall & Oates song writers spend to come up with that iconic line, to make it popular, only for it to one day wind up in a videogame localized by X.X.XSEED Games without proper permission and payoff if permission was not given freely ? ALL that work so that a dumb, petty, pedo-pandering degenerate like Tom-chan "Keep the KKK, man!" Lipschultz could one day stuff in it his plagiarized, vandalized edited hack script... F#cking pathetic!

You're supposed to f#cking ask for permission in these cases, which could be given for free, but usually you gotta talk business and pay the copyright holder for it... Of course XSEED did NOT bother, but I'd have to eat my words and delete this thread if there's mention of licensing in the ending credits of the game, like a special thanks to Hall & Oates to indicate they licensed proper use... But yeah, extremely doubtful cause they likely think this usage was "innocent enough" to make a dumb joke about how a nurse is overly strict/anal/controlling/nagging/etc.

Update #2: Got a reply back from the Hall & Oates Facebook account 3 days later!

OK, so I'm gonna forward my attempt to inform their management on XSEED Games unlicensed plagiaristic use of that ManEater line. Any chance to ding the bastards is a chance I gotta take! Wish me luck!

See, the reason that Jeff Nussbaum, Thomas Lipschultz and Ken Berry Wrong could confidently step on me is because I'm just little ole me, Joe Smoe, and I had no "legal department" to represent and defend thousands of my free fan work hours and translation software! "You were just fans" as Ken Berry said to me, so sneaking around, doing "business" in a way where you only had to pay one guy, instead of two, and credit only one guy, instead of two, etc. offers obvious more benefit and preference (most especially to the vengeful/vindictive Lipschultz)...

Now the only chance at true justice to correct this situation is if I bring the funds to bear to hire a lawyer and take legal action. But that has not come to pass as of yet, so if somebody else's legal department were to take interest, that's at least a consolation prize! I only got to watch with glee as one of Lipschultz' buddies, Psycho John Schizomaniak, caught a libel lawsuit for heckling Agness Kaku, the Metal Gear Solid 2 translator, so at least I got the satisfaction of seeing a related criminal in all of this suffer some legal heat! So you know, goes around comes around, you can only hope the criminals that have wronged you make some mistakes with the wrong people in the future and it catches up with them!

The thing is, when Victor Ireland under Working Designs stuffed his games with pop-culture references, which is what X.X.XSEED/Lipschultz is trying to pay homage to in a sense, videogames weren't on the radar as much, but the fact is, Victor got away with copyright violations in many cases, using copyrighted and likely even trademarked phrases from popular movies and so forth, all without licensing for commercial use in commercial products!

X.X.XSEED Games/Lipschultz are profiting here from Hall & Oates' writing which allows them in the scene depicted in the GIF to add some sexual humor. You can't perhaps claim "fair use" to hide behind because they're not the press attempting to report/comment on the song and what have you... I know it's an innocent enough use which is why they did it, but since it's a commercial product and they're profiting from it, THEY WERE technically supposed to talk business with the copyright holders of that line!!! Just like they were supposed to talk business with me also when they snuck around to acquire the 4 fan translated Ys scripts and had Jeff use my translation software one last time for commercial purposes without licensing/inclusion! They exploited both the paperless nature of our fan partnership along with Jeff's personal contempt for me in a "Too bad sucka!" fashion and they *need* to be held accountable in some way, shape or form for this injustice!!!! This is a lesson these disgusting criminal cheats need to be taught one way or another!

X.X.XSEED Games *needs* to be brought to justice one way or another!

I haven't done sufficient updates to keep up with recent events but as many XSEED fans on Twitter know the company was BUSTED bigtime for cheating Brittany Avery after being fired with the disgraced Tom-chan "The KKK Witch" Lipschultz. This led to the fashionably flamboyant Executive Commander Sterling to produce this most excellent video lambasting XSEED for cheating people!So...I fired up a cracked copy of Ys Chronicles+ by the RELOADED pirates for the 1st time to see how Falcom upgraded the Ys Complete DirectX5 game engine, been curious, and never saw it till today... Surely Tom-chan Lipschultz doesn't mind, after all, he happily violated the licensing terms of my English fan patches before being hired by X.X.XSEED Games AND again violated my IP Rights AT the company given my translation software -- all in conspiracy with Jeff Nussbaum -- having shamefully ensured I was criminally cheated (hence the boycott campaign), so what's good for the goose is good for the gander!

To the point, observe his characteristic lameness above having defaced the Ys I PC script by inserting a pop-culture reference which you'll see right from the start, a line from an old 80's song "ManEater" by Hall & Oates... I honestly can't believe he started the game off like that thinking that he's in ANY way, shape or form "funny!" What a pathetic deucebag/duncebag I thought to myself seeing it with my own eyes for the very 1st time (only heard it rumored before now)... I can almost imagine the smirk on that disgusting vindictive face of his when he wrote it thinking it's a "plus" when nothing could be further from the truth, he just defaced the script... I felt it worth ridiculing, so I immortalized it proper with an ani-GIF.

P.S. This is yet another technical criminal copyright violation as I'm sure the X.X.XSEED gang did NOT license permission from the copyright owner to use a famous line as this verbatim in plagiaristic fashion for monetary gain in a for-profit commercial product... Let's call it what it is, it's PLAGIARISM without the licensing/permission, so write your OWN jokes you cheating, bigoted, arrogant f*cking aholes!!!! Once again, F*CK YOU and your disgusting excuse of a company!!!!!! You NEVER should've snuck around and illegally acquired those fan-translated results if it meant cheating one party over another, and objectively allowing for revenge given your disgusting employee started a public, nasty feud with said party BEFORE being hired!! You're Grade-A DISGUSTING and you tainted Falcom and ALL of Ys history with your unjust, bigoted, discriminatory actions!

Now "ManEater" was released on the H2O album in 1982, and the record label is RCA Records, who for the purposes of copyright would legally own the song, that is if the Hall & Oates group didn't work a deal to retain ownership of their songs. One party or the other is who you'd have to contact to legally use that line! So anybody surprised they ripped off yet another party besides me to publish their game ? :rolleyes: I've said it before, and I'll say it again, this company is a disgusting embarrassment, a blight in the videogame publishing world... Lipschultz lectured, demonized, and attempted to extort me based on respect of copyright law, but he and his company need quite a bit of education on the subject as it turns out...

Update #1: I'm gonna contact the legal department of RCA Records, show them the GIF, report XSEED's info, and hopefully they show interest in pursuing legal action which would REALLY make my day! Sure, the odds are .0000000001% they'd give a damn, but I'm gonna give it a shot, what the hell, there's nothing to lose other than a few minutes of my day!

« on: Apr. 10, 2016, 07:14:18 PM »
Pan, another Peter Pan remake.

So I wondered about this given the bad reviews and I understand partly why... Early in the movie after pirate Captain Blackbeard captures Peter Pan from his WWII era orphanage, all of Blackbeard's pirates, slave miners, he himself, (thousands of people), break out into a...Nirvana song of all things...

Yes, Nirvana's "Smells like Teen Spirit" serves as the pirates' anthem believe it or not...  And they sing the lyrics very clearly making it the first time I ever made sense of the song... This out of place song sort of reminded me of Christian Slater saying "F--k me..." in Kevin Costner's Robinhood when he's sprung over the castle wall. It was funny but technically out of place for the time period.

Ultimately I did like the movie despite the weirdness of finding a Nirvana song in it. It's a very interesting back story exploring Peter Pan and Captain Hook starting out as friends/allies against Blackbeard, so it did do other things right and I don't think it deserved to be the major flop disaster that it was...

Hook was played by Garrett Hedlund who also played Sam Flynn in Tron Legacy. I like him but I think he had a so so performance in this, his acting was passable though a bit stiff...

Anyway, I would recommend the movie despite the negative reviews and issues. It does have some level of movie magic and is respectable.

Yeah, that was good looking out man, thanks! :) Now I gotta do an unboxing video some time. Heh. ;)

This was in pretty new condition BTW, just some wear/nicks/scratches on the outer gold sleeve cardboard, but other than that, it's new, untouched! So for $50 bucks total, to own a piece of Falcom/Ys history in their "golden years" when they primarily made Windows DirectX PC games and were NOT poisoned by THE MOST disgusting, divisive, criminal localization company in history (XXXSEED Games), not bad, not bad at all!!

For comparison, here's what the later Popular Edition looks like which I also own:

Still very beautiful boxing for these Ys treasures. :)

Status: Oh, have I got A LOT to one day finish writing up about this disgusting m0therf--ker right here, you have no idea!!! There is a demented level of delusions in his recent lying denials of wrongdoing when it comes to X.X.XSEED Games, it's breathtaking... He's apparently been running on a reality distortion field for years and years as hard as it is to believe! W.I.P.

Entry #12-21-2009: Jeff Nussbaum is an unhinged Homicidal Psycho Lunatic who wants to kill numerous fans! True or False?

It appears he doesn't have to apologize or answer for ANY of his murderous rage rants, while I was supposed to be permanently erased from Ys history for my "sins" of criticizing freeloading and a handful of other "charges" that are always trumped up by the WyrdWad pedo-predator, Tom-chan Lipschultz, and his crew of angry misfits, which of course I can NEVER be forgiven for...

Evidence: (Click, then find "bleach"!)
Notes: I can confirm, his "Am I An Asshole?" thread WAS deleted! I'm 1000% certain it was the mod EvilWasabi who showed some sympathy towards him and laughed at me being doxxed to protect him! Nothing had been deleted prior to this to my knowledge, so very lucky WayBack still hosts it!!

Quote from: Psycho Jeff "Psycho DeuceBag" Nussbaum
And to help answer my own question here... to anyone who has a problem with how I choose to spend my own free time, do the rest of the world a favor.  Go mix up a paint stripper and bleach cocktail, and down it.  Ideally, feed some to any progeny you've made the mistake of siring beforehand. Yes, I am suggesting you off yourself and your misbegotten family, and keep your bloodline from further polluting the gene pool. (That's the general, non-specific "you," for those who never paid attention in English class.)

Some of you folks are cool and would be welcome in my home. Most of you, I'm completely indifferent toward, mostly out of simply not knowing you. A handful, witnessing, and perhaps contributing to, your agonizing demise would raise a dry smile.  And if you think I'm exaggerating, you really don't know the first thing about me. Then again, if you did, you wouldn't make such idiotic assumptions about my intentions to begin with. I don't mince words, tell lies, or play nice if I don't genuinely wish to.

And with that, I'm off to bed. The asshole has work to do.

Entry #02-26-2002: Jeff Nussbaum wanted to kill his ex-boss, see him shot, who fired him in 2002! True or False?

Quote from: Jeff Nussbaum
I hate stupid people. I really, really do.
Eventually, there was a mass exodus, which included myself being more or less fired, though if I'd tried to collect unemployment, he'd have fought it tooth and nail.
If there's any one person in the world who richly deserves to be shot, it's this man. What a colossal ass he is. I hope he rots while he lives. Maybe all that dandruff will reach his pea-sized brain and kill him. His kids have the dire misfortune of looking like him. *shudder* Poor things.

These are kill/murder fantasies no matter how you try to spin them to cover-up for XSEED Games or NIS America promoting and rewarding this monster! And notice the last sentence, Jeff Nussbaum went after his ex-boss' family unprovoked, he involved/attacked the guy's kids, implying they're as ugly as their father! "Poor things, having the dire misfortune of looking like him" - he's implying they're all ugly!

Screenshot (In case he deletes): Jeff-Nussbaum-Ambulance-Crasher-Cock-Flasher3-12-2002.png

On March 12, 2002, The XXXSEED Cock-Flasher, Psycho Liar-in-Cheat Jeff "Psycho DeuceBag" Nussbaum, crashed into an ambulance because of his raging impatience with the driver in front!!! So, he made an attempt to change lanes in order to pass that person up, but met his match against an ambulance... Our EMS workers have a dangerous enough time in the their line of work, ya know, saving lives, they don't need homicidal/suicidal clowns like this guy (who wants to help kill or suicide numerous fans!) roaming free behind the wheel... Good job DunceBag!! lol

Perhaps he was looking down at his shlong for a moment, thinking about how "hilarious" it'd be to flash a photo of it to the videogame forum, and so he missed the fact that AN AMBULANCE ahead on the right lane would not clear out of the way in time, who knows, but given his 20-YEAR record of miserable failures in judgement such as drug addictions, long-term joblessness, a suicide-attempt, bankruptcy, losing mommy's condominium, etc. it's also no wonder he's a threat to other drivers... What a clown!

Quote from: Ambulance-Crasher Jeff "DunceBag" Nussbaum
What a spectacularly shitty day. As if my general gloom wasn't bad enough, on the way home... not two minutes after leaving my job's parking lot, no less... I get into an accident. With a f#cking ambulance, of all things.

Someone hates me.

Indeed criminal, MANY hate you! And now we also know you're dangerous to other drivers! Learn to drive or stay off the road you psychotic SOB!!!

Final Thought: How dumb is this guy to have publicly admitted this ?? The crazy psycho liar is not as smart as he thinks he is...

Checking out Ys games with my new LG 43" 4K panel. Resolution set to 1024x768 (which is native for the game) and 75Hz since this panel is actually capable of it. Was hoping to find a genuine 120Hz panel at this screen size for my upgrade, but the LG 43UF6400 has proven to be good enough. I'd have to throw another $200 or so for a Sony Bravia to get genuine 120Hz support for use as a good computer monitor. Regardless, the LG 43UF6400 has proven to work wonderfully both as a computer monitor and a fully functional smart TV, only wish they chose the Android operating system instead of their own WebOS 2.0.

I was shown these by MP83 Miikka. Might as well preserve them:

 ;DJust happened moments ago, an Ys buddy of mine (a big "fan" of X.X.XSEED's Thomas "WyrdWad" Lipschultz and an ex-forum moderator of ALOY whose final act they're quite familiar with, heh) PM'ed me that an original Ys I & II Complete Limited Edition set had just gone up on eBay by HitJapan. He knew I wanted one after he showed me the one he bought and he kept an eye out for the next sale to pop up on my behalf. I should've bought my homie GillianSeed's copy when I had a chance during his great sell off of his Falcom collection many moons ago, but good ole MP83 scored that copy instead...

So HitJapan wanted $50 + $20 for shipping, BUT, they had a Make Offer option, so my initial haggle attempt was based on subtracting that $20 for shipping, to keep it at $50, my absolute max, so I offered $30... To my surprise and disappointment, the operator was online and accepted my offer a few minutes later... I wonder much lower I could've gone, but oh well, $50 it is!!! :)

It's a bit collectard to want this for my shelf basically since I played out the game and already have the Falcom Popular Edition which is the mini-me version of this full Limited Edition set. For the most part, it'll admittedly just be a shiny trophy of some of my Ys past. Always liked how they fashioned the box in the style of an ancient book of Ys. :) But yeah, oh well, I have a bit of collectard in me.

The battle must be fought, one person at a time if need be, for whatever PR consequences/losses in sales that can be caused! That makes it worthwhile regardless or not if Lipschultz'n'company ultimately succeed in preserving the historical excising of me from Ys history!

That right there is money that won't be going in Thomas Lipschultz's pocket who once demonized me as "greedy" before being hired by the company... "You wanna profit off of poor Ys fans," he said... And yet, assuming an average salary of $30k-40k/year at XSEED Games, he has profited off of Ys fans handsomely I'd say! He's made at least six figures working there since 2010, in part, off the wallets of Ys fans... Before, they didn't have to feel guilty downloading an import Japanese game, but his work to pick it up for localization changed that...

Question: Who is the greatest profiteer of Ys fans then ? Yep, that'd be you, ahole! Thomas "wyrdwad" Lipschultz! Interesting how history worked out the real answer to that question... And who turned out to be the greatest criminal cheat ? Psycho PruvMeRong, the GameFAQs leaker of the Felghana patch ? HELL NO!! That would be you once again ahole in conspiracy and in partnership with Jeff "Psycho DeuceBag" Nussbaum... NOTHING that PruvMeRong ever did or said could top what you duo of deucebags did or said in the aftermath of these shameful, disgusting script acquisition deals! NOTHING! You two are far bigger monsters than what Psycho PruvMeRong could EVER come close to being! BELIEVE THAT!

So, for the record, the *one month* that the Felghana patch wasn't free in 2007 which certain Ys trolls STILL obsess about even to this day doesn't f--king compare to the amount of money that this bigoted criminal has made by now, yet he sought to destroy me in the court of public opinion because I tried to recover some of my financial losses in those ~5 years where I sacrificed a salaried job that would've amounted to $350,000 in that total time period... Few, if any, would've sacrificed what I did for Ys fan translation projects, but this disgusting, arrogant, bigoted criminal worked behind the scenes to organize a double-cross, to demonize me for years, in part on the basis that I was a "greedy profiteer..."

And THEN! He does it again after being hired by XSEED having established a relationship with Psycho DeuceBag as they hid what they were up to for years in a double-cross on the Ys Origin project where Psycho DeuceBag tricked me into doing the step 1 labor to extract the script, but then he redirected the translated results to Lipschultz's programmer buddy! Lipschultz manages to accomplish the same thing with XSEED, first with the older Ys scripts, and again with Ys Origin, the translated results he's in possession of thanks to thousands of my work hours and my software, are redirected to XSEED and he pockets 100% of the credit, and 100% of the profit, whatever it was...

Lipschultz's demonization was selectively at times based on general anti-profit, anti-capitalist "commie speak," at other times, it was based on profiting without a license, but yet, it was awesome for Psycho DeuceBag to profit off of my software one last time with a commercial, for-profit company such as XSEED, without a license. I never licensed Translation Station for full commercial use. I would have been a fool to do so... Psycho DeuceBag simply did it on the basis of being behind a computer, me having given him scripts/software years ago under fan circumstances and well, f--k the other guy, that's it, I can just do it!

Notice how unprincipled Lipschultz as well as other bigoted XSEED shills reveal themselves to be now! They screamed about how evil I was for daring to profit off of Falcom, but now celebrate as Psycho DeuceBag in conspiracy clearly profited off of my back, my work hours, my software, all without any permission/licensing and that's just f--king super duper awesome for it to have happened that way! When they hate the target, cheating is great! No principles whatsoever because the shills I'm speaking of are typically corrupt, Far Left bigoted hacks who discovered I'm just some "right-winger with a website..."

This is what you need to understand about nutjobs like Psycho Kirsten "omgfailure" Miller, Psycho John Schizomaniak, Psycho PruvMeRong (the leaker), Kitsune Sniper, Spinner8-Romhacking-Hack-of-Hate, Erpy, etc. And yes, even Psycho DeuceBag - how else do you think he justified what he did ? I live rent-free in these bigots' minds because I dared to talk right-leaning politics on my own blog...

No matter what they tell you, their type of hatred stems from detecting "a right-winger on the web," that's just how bigoted Far Left hacks are, so everything is justifiable: cheating, heckling, libeling the target, anything, extortion threats, doxing even, crank calls, etc. Anything that can bring their bigoted malcontent minds some gleeful satisfaction that somebody who doesn't share their worldview was somehow punished, persecuted, blacklisted, blackballed, etc. You might think I'm way off here in analyzing these bigots this way, but I assure you I've thought about this long and hard and this understanding took years... I stand by it!

Anyway, I'm happy to say I've had others respond as the person in this Facebook exchange did, so little by little XSEED needs to be taken down a notch. They currently will not apologize and correct the situation because the consequences have not been brought to bear in enough of a significant impact; it will take a lawsuit for that to happen unfortunately, but I will continue to do what I can for free until I can make remotely hiring a lawyer in their jurisdiction possible to really give the bastards something to remember me by, win or lose, won't matter, as long as I can one day make it happen!

I haven't done sufficient updates to keep up with recent events but as many XSEED fans on Twitter know the company was BUSTED bigtime for cheating Brittany Avery after being fired with the disgraced Tom-chan "The KKK Witch" Lipschultz. This led to the fashionably flamboyant Executive Commander Sterling to produce this most excellent video lambasting XSEED for cheating people!Tom-chan "The KKK WyrdWad Witch" Lipschultz and Ken Berry Very Wrong of the shameful X.X.XSEED Games made a bet... They bet that they could simply ignore me away... They bet that there'd never be any consequences for publicly and deliberately cheating a prominent Ys fan out of a lifetime of work and dedication that spanned across 5+ years (on the contrary, they thought that like-minded bigots in the Ys fanbase would *reward* them for cheating me!!)... They -- including Jeff "Call me Psycho DeuceBag!" Nussbaum -- bet that after enough time, I'd simply give up, disappear, etc. as all criminals hope in that their victims simply shut up, "move on," go away (think Bill Cosby) and no longer cause them any PR consequences/damage, further or otherwise... THEY BET WRONG!

OH MY GAWWD! I DON'T BELIEVE IT! I beat a game today!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYY!!! It is Popful Mail for the Sega CD, the product of the former Falcom Sega alliance which was later localized for the US by good ole Victor Ireland/Working Designs! Last game I beat was in August, 2013 (Kingdom Hearts [PS2]), so yeah, it doesn't happen very often if at all...

Random Notes/Thoughts:

* ProTip: In order to play this game with the Kega Fusion emulator, YOU MUST enable the "Perfect Sync" option or it will not boot past the BIOS logo. Also, for Sega CD BIOS, I used the "Sega-CD Model 2 BIOS V2.11 (U) [!].gen" file.

(Thanks to FantasyAnime's Alej for this important tip as I couldn't get the image working at first because of it:

* Dislike: The camera is somewhat slow and doesn't center on your moving character. The latter allows for cheap enemy surprise hits given the desire to progress in a game very often outweighs cautious movement. Annoying!

* HOLY MOLY, but I can't recall a game with this many pop culture references quite honestly!

+ Opening Anime Sequence = "Get ready for-a big surprise" by Nuts Cracker decapitated head, total reference to "Total Recall" scene!+ Donald Trump!! Hah!
+"Win one for the Slickster" - A reference to Reagan's "Win one for the Gipper"
+ Robin Leech
+ Southern drawl character - "What in tarnation do you want from me now ? Leave me be!"
+ Sven = The Ahnold/Terminator/Pump you up/ - Sven was the steroid bodyguard's name in Ahnold's "The Running Man." Behold, the ultimate performance:+ French joke in a game world that has no concept of France, much less earth...

Cool guy whose work I ran into that does lots of animation GIFs and is also a big Ys fan.

While Alan Oppenheimer is fairly famous for all his voice-acting work in 80's cartoons (He-Man, The Smurfs, The Transformers, Scooby-Doo, etc.) and did a great job voicing Darm and the opening narrator for Ys Book I & II, there's somebody else that worked on the game who achieved far greater fame that's worth mentioning when one fondly looks back at a great classic such as this for the NEC TurboGrafx-CD system!

Something I once learned from a Game Sack episode (thanks to Joe Redifer) and never was the wiser till it was explicitly pointed out: See that Thomas H. Church credit for Goban Toba ? Yep, that's one in the same as Thomas Haden Church, the Hollywood actor last known for playing SandMan in Spider-Man 3! The Ys Book I & II dub was well-funded after all and still is one of the best that I know of in a videogame!
As SandMan
As Goban Toba
How about that ? I was pretty surprised when I first learned of this. In addition to a high-quality dub, Ys Book I & II sports one of the greatest soundtracks in videogame history, right along with the sequels for the NEC CD consoles, and that is a big reason why I and many others became such devout Ys fans!!!! :) The magic of when I first fired up Ys Book I & II on my brand new Turbo Duo in the 90's still remains with me to this day. The partnership of Hudson Soft and Falcom led to some great things in gaming console history, and it's too bad Hudson is no longer with us...
