Synopsis: To "honor" X.X.XSEED Games' Ys VI Steam release on this day, April 28, 2015, I resurrected a long forgotten 2004 translation project in time for a simultaneous release of my own as part of a, shall we say, "Boycott XSEED Games, Get FREE Games/Patches!!!" program! :P Consider it a free alternative (if you will) to their played-out pay-to-play "Steam Scheme" - the product of nothing more than a cynical desire to continue to profit off of poor devoted Ys fans with a ~12+ year old game this time... Why give your hard-earned money to disgusting, criminal cheats for what can be had for FREE??

Great news: Psycho DeuceBag = Denied! Even though Jeff Nussbaum was also sitting on the Ys VI translated results from our 2004 project "eager" to one day "sell" them to X.X.XSEED ( and could've potentially unjustly and illegally profited off of my back for the 5th time, they rejected another criminal sneak/cheat job to have him transfer the text over for editing!! Instead, they had their Celceta translator, Daniel Prescott, do a new LEGAL/MORAL/ETHICAL one from scratch who has neither a criminal nor cock-flashing past, so a wise PR choice! Hopefully my boycott and exposing them had something to do with it, but I suspect DunceBag's translation failures in the ED6:FC PSP version also played a role in rejecting our ready-to-go work! He began to see as early as Nov. 12th, 2012 that he wouldn't work with them again on another Ys game, which is 6 months after I called Ken Berry to stop this criminality from going on any further!

Remember, the criminals of XSEED refuse to admit they did ANYTHING wrong in their divisive exploitation of fan-translated results, in sneaking around to acquire them, in perpetrating "unjust enrichment" in Psycho DeuceBag's favor, and thus damaging ALL fan-translation team relationships between the programmer and translator, whereby according to them, the translator gets to criminally run off with the results, profit 100%, get credited 100%, should genuine for-profit commercialization occur! No programmer should EVER trust ANY translator that they're working with should opportunities like this arise again! WATCH YOUR BACK! That is what the criminal "XSEED precedent" left us with whether or not such disgusting bastards ever admit to it!!! Thomas Lipschultz is as arrogant as he is bigoted, and this denial will continue!

HuffingtonPost: X.X.XSEED under fire for most despicable videogame of all time!!

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!** "'AKIBA'STRIP: Undead and Undressed' May Be One of the Most Despicable Video Games of All Time"
** HuffingtonPost: "...we present what has to be one of the most horrifying video games to be released this year..."
** Boycott X.X.XSEED Games Facebook Page!

Seems X.X.XSEED "Spread/Spray/Splatter/Spill Your Seed!!" Games is REALLY living up to their creepy, triple X.X.X. freakshow nature, not just cause of Thomas Lipschultz, a highly animated, almost fanatical/obsessed defender of animated/cartoon ped0phile-p0rnography, and not just cause of Jeff "Le Psycho DeuceBag" Nussbaum, The X.X.XSEED Cock-Flasher (p0rnostar-wannabe), no no no, not just cause of those things, but for a perv "videogame" that they're about to bring to US shores! HAHAHAHA! Go figure!

HuffingtonPost charges X.X.XSEED "Games" (*effectively* since they're not named, but are responsible for this) with, well, X.X.XCESS, that is, publishing what "may be one of the most despicable video games of all time!!!" HAHAHAHA, this is so awesome and REALLY made my day like you can't even imagine!!!! To find that the very two-bit, criminal company that cheated me is about to publish a "game" that's getting ripped apart on the HuffingtonPuffingtonPost of all places, oh lordy, I just couldn't contain expressing the glee that I feel right now!! What a gift this is, truly, a high-traffic news organization giving X.X.XSEED negative PR, and surprisingly from something like the HuffPuffPost!

Lipschultz: What do you mean this isn't normal ?? What's wrong with this ? Welcome to 2014 A.D. C.E., you prude!
X.X.XSEED: "Special Delivery" "fanservice" for our "fans" and we REALLY can’t wait for them to "get their hands on this!!"

B.J. DeuceBag, "The XXXSEED C0ck-Flasher," strikes again! Boycott XSEED Games!

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!First off, ladies and gentlemen, we here at Ys are STILL patiently awaiting to hear from B.J. Psycho DeuceBag's "lieyer" given the legal action that he promised... It's been 6 months since he broke his 3 years of direct silence towards me (read: "playing stupid" after the first Felghana May 2010 deal with XSEED Games) to threaten legal action and I am still in full violation of his "demands." :P Anyway, I shall keep you posted on that front as soon as I hear from "his lawyer..."

Intro: Now, as indicated, Jeff "I got a big d1ck!" Nussbaum struck again, but this time on Facebook! Basically, I learned that a new Ys patch was released and I posted that I'd have to boycott it on account of him, a disgusting, bigoted, callous criminal having translated it. Suffice to say, that got the criminal's attention and once again prompted a direct response...

Continue Reading... (Post Status: 100% - Done.)

Quicki Insert: Presenting a newer version of the Ys Typing Tutor for later release to honor XSEED, its personnel + others >:D:

P.S. Tom, you're not the only one that knows how to wage a PR war, buddy! You will come to regret ever meeting me m0therf--ker, the way I have come to regret ever meeting you AND the c0ck-flasher! I hope that's already the case for the both of you and your two-bit, exploitative, divisive, criminal company...

DeuceBag Strikes Back: Declares War on Freedom of Speech!! Boycott XSEED Games!!

** Update: Sunday "Lawsuit" Funday, June 23, 2013! History in the making! 3 years of mutual silence broken!
** XSEED's "FlasherTM," Psycho DeuceBag, vows to essentially "deucebag" me again, but this time with an anti-free speech lawsuit!!
** Psycho DeuceBag's War on Freedom of Speech: Demands TOTAL DELETION from this site to escape accountability for what he did!!
** A chill wind is blowing across the Ys community... A "message" is being sent... If you dissent, if you speak out against injustices, even if they were perpetrated by XSEED and the likes of "The FlasherTM," there can and will be ramifications... /end Tim Robbins

** Update: Sunday "Legal Threat" Funday, June 23, 2013!
XSEED's "FlasherTM," Jeff "Psycho DeuceBag" Nussbaum, vows an anti-free speech lawsuit!!!!! Read all about it!!!

Ladies and gentlemen, HISTORY was made yesterday! After having read this, Jeff "I have a lawyer" Nussbaum, AKA Psycho DeuceBag, (XSEED's credited "FlasherTM" since he once posted his c-ck shot on the NeoGeo forums) finally broke his now 3 year long "vow of silence" towards me (a mutual de-facto state all the while he unloaded all scripts we produced to XSEED, taking full credit/full profit, right up to Ys Origin!) WITH another vow, that of a lawsuit!!!!!

Mission Accomplished! Actually got him butt-hurt enough to come out of hiding! So, after 3 years, 1 month, 1 week, (Saturday, 6/22/2013 - Saturday, 5/15/2010) from when he announced the first XSEED deal with Felghana and celebrated as if he got there all by himself, pretending as if my "step 1" work hours/labor had nothing to do with it and need not be counted (and basically, played stupid with me ever since), ultimately taking 100% credit/100% profit from a for-profit commercial entity (XSEED Games) for work hours/labor that he wasn't 100% responsible for, here is what this disgusting criminal had to say to the other man that made it possible that he COMPLETELY cheated with NO guilty conscience whatsoever (again, the first DIRECT communication to me after 3 years!):
Quote from: Jeff "I got a lawyer!" Nussbaum
From: Jeff Nussbaum <>
Sent: Saturday, June 22, 2013 2:28 PM
Subject: Hello.

Hello, Nick. I strongly suggest you back off, lest you get sued for libel. And unlike you, I actually do have a solid case.

Any correspondence from you will be forwarded to my lawyer, along with your existing libelous remarks on your website.

Final Email, with him pathetically reduced to nothing more than a low-life extortionist:
Quote from: Jeff "I got a big d1ck!" Nussbaum
Sent: Tuesday, June 25, 2013 1:53 AM
Blah blah... My original statement stands. Remove any and all reference to me ... from your web site, or I will bring legal action against you. "RRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWRRRRRRRRR!!!!"

   Sorry criminal, but we both have the same problem: we're in different states and "your lawyer" has no jurisdiction here. For my "unjust enrichment" claim regarding your criminality with XSEED, I'd have to remotely hire a lawyer IN your state who would file the lawsuit for me with the small claims clerk in your county. Professional representation in small claims court is not necessary but it would spare me the trip to start the lawsuit. Anyhow, one of the many obstacles to justice when the enemy is in another state... And make no mistake about it, you're a monstrous criminal that needed to be brought to justice a LONG LONG time ago, you and Lipschultz!!! That is your legacy!

Translation: "*MY* lawsuit would actually stand a chance as opposed to yours! Neener Neener Neener!! Yesss, yesss, that's right, I already gots me a lawyer (sounds like you don't) who has experience with libel and can magically handle cases across state lines OR maybe I found one in your state, you don't know, so ya better watch out, chump!!! Neener Neener Neener!!! You know, you should've just gone away quietly like many of us at XSEED were hoping... So you got chumped, deal with it! Move on!! GET OVER IT!! Boohoo, cry me a river!"

If I didn't know any better, I'd say ole Psycho DeuceBag is calling me a liar. It takes lies to win such cases. He actually did post a photo of his d1ck on the NeoGeo forums immortalizing himself there as "The FlasherTM". He is an a$$hole, not hard to prove that! Funny though, after all these years, Psycho DeuceBag turns out to be an Enemy of Free Speech given this kind of threat! Same deal recently with Psycho John threatening to "contact the authorities" because I called him the hack journalist that he is for his 2009 actions of posting provable lies about me that Kurt Kalata deleted from HardcoreGaming101.
Well, I hope "your lawyer" will relieve you of $550 or more to get started, but the fact that you were butt-hurt enough to make this kind of threat already provides me with some feeling of justice, however small! BTW, were you well-medicated when you sent that email ?? Anyway, the mystery of what his first direct email/response to me would look like is solved... 3 years I waited to see it and, well, I feel very gyped... So there you have it, the criminal that cheated me starting in 2010, that got his name credited on several official XSEED releases of Ys games off of my back/sacrifices, my time, my tools, my labor, etc. now feels HE'S the victim, you see... The cruel/callous victimizer that went all "gangsta" on me now claims victimhood... Pfffft. Funny how that works!

P.S. History shows us interesting things now looking back. Part of the reason Seldane excised us from the Felghana title screen credits was because of your final post on AHOY ALOY where you equated him to PruvMeRong, the vile, bigoted, criminal menace that leaked the Felghana patch and he got butt-hurt about that... Well, the fact is, YOU turned out to be FAR WORSE than the leaker could EVER hope to be!! YOU ARE FAR, FAR WORSE THAN HIM! And Seldane was just an arrogant, lame, little bitch, emphasis on the little. Real small potatoes in comparison! Anyhow, don't EVER again try to use PruvMeRong in an argument and objectively/essentially indicate that you're better than him... Your betrayal was far worse! Your handling of the situation, after you were contacted by XSEED, just plain horrible and unforgivable! Bottomline, YOU turned out to be the biggest monster of them all, and for that, like I said, BURN IN HELL!!!!

P.S.2. This disgusting, lying a$$hole actually insinuated that I said something negative about his kids! I didn't say ANYTHING about your kids!! Paranoid much ? Seeing things that aren't there or what ?? Is your sight getting a little worse with age ?? Might have to rename ya again, this time to DunceBag! No, I called YOU a "child abuser" which was a criticism of YOU and that was all that I said!! Attacking your kids would've been something that your bigoted, low-class-no-class, atheist, Christophobic idol, Bill Maher, would do, who deliberately seeks out to insult everyone in Sarah Palin's family for example! "Trig Palin = retarded!! Ha ha, I'm funny!" - cause, yeah, it's all cool to pick on her family and you get away with it! So yeah, don't put me in the same class as your bigoted, hate-mongering hero/idol to score some moral points, you lying a$$hole!! That's what you bigoted hacks on the Far Left do, so go f--k yourself!! If you're gonna roll up in my direction 3 years later, you ought not make false accusations/insinuations! The only problem I have is with YOU, nobody else around you! And no, 2 sentences of asking if your wife divorced you and stating that she deserves better than you, is not in ANY way an attack on her! It's entirely a criticism of YOU, Mr. p0rn0star-wannabe!

BTW, I have some demands of you too, you wanna hear them ?? Yeah, thought so!! I don't care about what YOU want (part of which was based on manufactured outrage), I care about the state of injustice that continues on for its 3rd year, that which you perpetrated against me with Lipschultz and the fact that you tried to conserve it last summer with your lying to Ken Berry, your "Nick's work wasn't used! I swear!!" line... Gee, how did you manage to export a 2 column Excel file for Felghana when you were asked then ?? How was it that you had anything in your criminal hands to give to them that they wanted then ?? So my time spent on step 1 tasks (script extraction, translation software, etc.) doesn't count as "work" according to you but ANY time that you spent on step 2 labor (conversion to English) does ?? That's REAL cute... They should've asked your lying a$$ to define "work..." Impression: "But, but, I swear, I used old database copies, hence my rough drafts were exported, so I got rid of his edits on the English text, and the Japanese text, well, that TOO belongs to me, so yeah, his *work* wasn't used!! WHAT THE HELL ? He shouldn't get any credit for his time in extracting it, HE DIDN'T TYPE IT!!!! "WORK" SHOULD ONLY BE SELECTIVELY DEFINED AS "TYPING" HERE BECAUSE IT SERVES OUR NEEDS IN HIS EXCLUSION!!!" Like I said, you're a criminal, and your "logic" immoral, unethical, self-serving, etc. God's honest truth, you really DO need to be prosecuted! Understand the great extent to which I hate you, how disgusting and monstrous I find you, more so now than ever given the contents of your first email in 3 years! You need to be brought to justice, far worse than the leaker!!!

Important Addendum: Yes, there were a few more emails after that; I believed it was him at first, but then saw that his email address was new, thought I got "punked" and then I tried to verify who he was. Well, it IS him! And the demand changed from "Back off or else!" to a demand for a TOTAL XCISE/DELETION off of my site (remove ANY and ALL references) or "legal action shall be brought against you, etc." I've only ever dreamed and consulted about paying a lawyer in South Carolina one day to start the process, but he's "indicating" he already has and is ready to "pull the trigger" because now, somehow, he became the bigger "victim" in his twisted mind. Insulting, really. Of course, there's the classic bluff (likely, given the jurisdictional issue), to see how much intimidation can be achieved by that alone but you never know. Whatever the case, I'll need to find multiple free web hosts to have handy for when I finish the whole story of "The XSEED XCISE" so I can upload it to many targets; I will not let him keep the public from knowing about what happened! This indicates that he's embarrassed, perhaps recognizes some kind of wrong that he did, on some level, as did XSEED, and doesn't want you to know about it (XCISING everything about him, his behavior, all references, etc. means that the story can't get told)! I also know he isn't gloating anymore as he likely was in 2010 as was Lipschultz...

Presenting: "The XSEED XCISER" (Thomas Lipschultz)! Boycott XSEED Games!!

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!
Alternate Title: "Ladies' Man Lipschultz" :P

Triumph: Insult Comic Dog's "Hear some spoilers?" joke.
(Wouldn't want a hack to misconstrue the meaning of
the joke and falsely characterize it as a "thre@t..."
   "I hate teh NightWolve and so should you! RAAAWWWR!"

Heh, is it me or do both of these a$$holes above look rather similar ? Strange coincidence there. Man, I hadn't even finished with the rant on Psycho John (on the right) before detouring to this subject, that's terrible.

Anyway, I'm taking an on-the-fly excursion on something that's been on my mind for years now and that should've been handled some time ago. Click below if you must. WARNING: SERIOUS INTERNET DRAMA!!! EDIT: It's gotten a little uglier than before, but hey, who gives a f--k at this point!

"Ys IV: Dawn of Ys" Dubbing Project Complete!!!! Now 100% English! Rejoice!

** January 1, 2013 (New Year's Day) - Special Thanks!
Thanks to Donny of San Diego for the out-of-nowhere, generous donation of $100 dollars after being notified about the Ys IV project update! He first donated in 2011, so he's not a new donor, but thank goodness for the 46 repeat ones! The total who donated is ~429 now; this, after 10 years out of a pool of ~60,000+ overall patch consumers, so the freeloading rate is beyond disgusting (99%!), but yeah, thankfully, of that ~429, at least 46 donated 2 or more times and his came right on the first of the new year! Some human decency in that 1%, so a sincere thank you man! I've been abused, cheated, overall fucked over by the 99%-ers (the leaker & the rest), even by my disgusting, criminal ex-partner, Psycho DeuceBag, as well as by XSEED, specifically Tom-chan Lipschultz / WyrdWad (the Ys Eternal Virgin AND a cartoon pedo-porn defender in his leisure!), their criminal resident XCISER (to be discussed in detail in the future!), so this SURE AS HELL was a welcomed way to start the new year!! Donny's response:
Quote from: Donny
No problem man!  I'd send you cookies too but Paypal hasn't figured out how to do that ;)  But seriously, I've literally waited nearly half my life for this!  So I just want to sincerely thank you for your efforts.  Kudos to you and your team!!  I'm a software engineer too so if I can help out in any way I'd be happy to lend a hand.

That he's a software engineer and this generous certainly makes sense! They have more empathy because they have an idea of literally the hundreds/thousands of hours that are sacrificed to make projects like these possible, as opposed to the general spoiled public, and never mind the outright warez trash that surrounds this hobby not giving a shit in the slightest bit. Two other engineers (software and sound/electrical), friends and partners on the Ys IV project (David Shadoff and Justus Johnston) also had donated $100 each (in addition to their time/expertise) several years back as a matter of fact. Come to think of it, my greatest donor is Mike W. who works at Intel (good friend to have there!) and his donations in terms of gifts are in the hundreds. So yeah, the profile is definitely there.

** December 25, 2012 (Christmas Day) - Ys IV Dubbing Project Completion Notice!!
Merrrrry Christmas folks!! Well, ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased to take the time given the occasion to report that 8+ years and 2 failed attempts later, this dubbing project has FINALLY been completed thanks to a whipper-snapper, BurntLasagna/Mike G., stepping up to the plate and going all the way!!! Hallelujah! 3rd time's a charm, right?

I didn't think I'd see this day come, that somebody would come along again with serious interest in working with me to get this done as Justus Johnston and GeeMac32bit tried BITD, and after 2 failed attempts, actual harassment/interference/defamation by one John Schizomaniak on the 2nd attempt (some bigoted, mentally unstable hack & Ys F.A.N. from HardcoreGaming101 and a UK Gaming Mag, "GamesTM"), along with the 99%-ers out there including the Felghana patch leaker (Pruvmerong, courtesy of GameFAQs' freakshow!), my appetite for fan projects isn't what it used to be certainly, so yeah, this is a friggin' miracle!

Since I always did lament this aspect of the project never being completed given that the technical knowledge was there to make it possible and I still somewhat hoped to one day get to play the game fully in English myself for a long time (I never read the translated speech file during a play-through, an option I never found appealing enough and I doubt others much did either), I never completely wrote the idea off! Suffice to say, it took a young-blood with fresh determination to come along, who also provided me with the motivation to complete all remaining technical issues, to finally make this all possible! I thought I had finished most things from the 2nd attempt and it was just a matter of recording actors, but as Mike G. and I found, it wasn't so simple... Regardless, our pain, your gain, and so you've read correctly, "Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys" is now FULLY English for your NEC retro CD systems, be it a Turbo Duo/Duo-R or an emulator like MagicEngine for enjoyment right on your PC!! So enjoy and make it an Ys Christmas this year... ya fuckin' freeloaders! ;)

** July 4, 2012 - Darm Splash Video  (Need 7-zip here to unzip)

What is it ? A proof of concept splash video made in Flash that would be launched when you start the Ys IV patcher (a new one that I plan to work on eventually after the dub is completed). I thought it'd be a fun idea to give it some extra visual umph, if you will. While it's WIP, I mostly got going what I want to accomplish with it. Getting Darm's line "You don't stand a chance..." mixed in with the BGM will be the problem, but it's close to what I want. More details here.

Oh, happy Independence Day! Heh, too bad though we were better off under a King tax-wise than we are under Obama and democrats!

** June  8, 2012 - Awesome Sample Dubs
** January 17, 2012 - Another half-hearted effort to see the Ys IV Dubbing Project revived...
Wow, that's 2 years later that this post gets updated! Things sure do move REAL slow around here, don't they? Anyway, suffice to say, the Ys IV dubbing project has never gone anywhere each time it's been tried - it's the one thing I wanted SOMEBODY ELSE to do, so naturally it NEVER gets done! Finally, I got to thinking and decided to take a few moments the other day to package/release what I call the "Ys IV Dub Kit" after the subject recently came up in a MagicEngine thread. I promised a fella named Arjak to one day provide him with the tools necessary (which was probably about a year ago - I seemingly tend to deal in years these days with my timelines, not months, etc. Heh.) to do the project himself, and I think the Ys IV Dub Kit, which is attached to this post for anyone to download, should be enough provided you know enough about software related to audio recordings. I've attached two mp3's for fun; they're two actresses that did some takes for Bammi and Lilia. As they were never finished, they're worthless, but nonetheless, I've included them for the hell of it.

Quick info/instructions on the Ys IV Dub Kit:
1)  You need an ISO/WAV/CUE image file set of an Ys IV disc. You can use my nifty TurboRip tool to make one. I made a hasty patched version to allow it to work on Vista, so download/use that if it doesn't work. Here's the link:
2)  Copy the Ys IV Dub Kit zip file in the same folder as the Ys IV image file set, extract all contents and rename track 2 to "YsIV-02.iso". You'll have to update the CUE file to reflect that change.
3)  I have included some English dubbed ADPCM clips with the Dub Kit. They are of Karna and a few others. If you double click "YS4_GET_WAVE_FROM_ADPCM.bat" they will be converted to WAVE and you can listen to them. If you double click "YS4_PUT_ADPCM_INTO_ISO.bat", that will insert these few clips into the ISO and if you mount the CUE, load the game in the MagicEngine emulator, you can get to the point in the game and listen to them. The Karna stuff is your best bet; it's at the point where she beats up those 2 white soldiers and also when you get captured, are in jail and she shows up to break you out, that part will be in English, etc.
4)  Double clicking on the "YS4_GET_WAVE_FROM_ADPCM.bat" batch file will extract ALL ADPCM audio clips and auto-convert them to regular WAVE files, so now you can listen to everything! There are 232 total ADPCM clips that are in need of re-dubbing. Only about ~15 of 'em are actually recorded with background music. Most clips have no background music so the voice actor just needs to do his/her recording in a quiet room with a good microphone and proper recording software.

John Schizomaniak (AKA Sketcz) the Menacing Malcontent Madman Strikes Yet Again!

Primer: >> I wrote about Psycho John Schizomaniak, a bullying bigoted blowhard, here as well... <<

(The Ys IV Project Harasser/Heckler)
Before we begin, quick question: Would you help raise 50,000 GBP ($78,410 USD) to "send" an utter and complete a$$hole to Japan to write a book about Japanese videogame developers that you *might* want to buy from him afterwards, assuming he succeeds in writing something that'd be worth the time ?? This contemptible clown actually started a Kickstarter project for this very purpose! That's right! Basically, it's a "Hey, I'm an a$$hole, gimme your money ($78,410 USD IN TOTAL!), send me to Japan and maybe I'll write a book that you'll wanna buy from me later!!" Bwahahahaha!

Just look at his disgusting, smug photo to the left, the air of utter arrogance and pompousness is so apparent!! The really scary thing is he actually gained pledges for half the amount he feels would be "necessary" to fund his little expedition/boondoggle (read: joyride) to Japan on somebody else's dime, the good little Communist that he is!! Heh-heh. This project will only be funded if at least the full ÂŁ50,000 is pledged, so hopefully that doesn't happen! However, I'm not too familiar with Kickstarter, but I think this a$$-clown could just post the project idea again with a lower asking amount so that it succeeds next time around by the allocated time frame... How sad that people would invest in this lying, lazy, incompetent hack!!

Anyhow, let's take it from the top. I have a serious tale to tell, ladies and gentlemen, an unfortunate one, and sure enough there's been no shortage of those in my line of work, lemme tell ya... I've already slightly introduced the lunatic in question, but I have to set up some context before getting to his 2nd "royal" strike. This story, this excursion of mine, mainly has to do with his harassment/heckling efforts when it came to the Ys IV Dubbing Project, twice, once in 2009, AND a recent encore "presentation" when the dub patch was finally completed (late 2012) simply because I dared to criticize him for what he did in 2009 (the hypocritical, hell-raising, heckling hack CAN'T take a taste of his own medicine and he has a REALLY SEVERE case of this!!!)...

So, his real name is John Szczepaniak (AKA "Sketcz"), but for the purposes of accuracy and entertainment, I christened him as Psycho John Schizomaniak. John's an angry hack "journalist" with very poor fact-checking skills (as will be shown) that works at a UK gaming magazine called GamesTM, and is also a staff member at among other places. He's also another one of my "satisfied customers," if you will, hence our little dust up. ;) What I mean by that is, he apparently developed a psycho hard-on for me to the point where I've been living rent-free inside his miserable malcontent mind for years (much like Spinner8, a r0mh@cking hack of hate, who's somewhat involved in this!) and yet I personally had never done anything to this man, aside from producing Ys patches for him to consume. Why is it the thankless freeloaders are always of the angriest bunch ??

Sorry. EDIT. IN. PROGRESS. I kept meaning to return and finish this, but I flamed out... :/

******** Scratch Outline to finish this article *********
* Attack post #1:
* Attack post #2:

  • Looks for my Ys IV patch late 2008, can't find it, in a paranoid fashion, concludes this was all an intentional plot to deny the Internet and hacks like him from ever possessing it...
  • While on R0mh@cking, the source of this paranoia and general douchebaggery (extortion threats, death-threats, you name it!), he reveals "totalitarian view" that unlicensed software should be cracked so he can always get it for free. Surprise surprise, an entitlement FREE-FOR-ME complex!
  • 2009, Creates giganto rant page on HardcoreGaming101 - He combines Communist Hammer & Sickle Imagery/Propaganda with Ys IV title screen images if you can believe that... The theme was "Worldwide Ys Freeloaders Unite against the big, bad, evil capitalist NightWolve!!" - He was butthurt about my criticisms for the 99% freeloading so this was his answer, etc.! You get the idea.
  • a) Accuses me of trying to make my Ys IV patch disappear (and others) from the Internet...
  • b) Accuses me of trying to stop GeeMac32bit from working on an Ys IV Dubbing project!!! Does not provide ANY quotes, ANYTHING at all to substantiate the previous claim! No quote from GeeMac to explain why, no quote from me, and yet on the same day on my website, I announce I'm working with GeeMac to get the dubbing done! It's a total fabricated LIE by a madman based on Thomas Lipschultz's trolling me in the past who was also his friend, so this was in a way to help him I suspect...
  • c) I contact Kurt Kalata, explain both accusations are COMPLETELY false and he deletes most of the page (, apologizes, though a very weak apology at that.
  • 2011, Psycho John releases parts of interviews that were cut in the editors' room of GamesTM.
    From this I learn that Psycho DeuceBag tried to libel/slander me in an interview for a UK videogame magazine. I was never notified and would have no place to respond to if that libel had actually been printed in that issue... I knew from this that Psycho DeuceBag and XSEED were going to have war on their hands.
  • 2012, Psycho John discovers that I wrote a few sentences (3-4) about what he did in 2009 in the Ys IV ReadMe. Explodes in a fit of rage, unleashes vile, venomous, vicious, verbal abuse upon BurntLasagna for what I wrote and attacks everybody in the project, a fanatical guilt by association, for not having known they were "supposed to" swoop down and censor my comments about him because the little darling can't take criticism, let alone a taste of his own medicine.

Blah, aborted from here; must remind myself to finish this op-ed on him - 4/8/2014

Well, I'm gonna have to take you back to the past, to effectively explain why Mr. Schizomaniak really sucks so much ass! The year was 2009, blah blah here >

On November 5, 2009, I sent this email to Kurt Kalata to fight back, the founder of "Hardcore Gaming 101":
Hey Kurt, I'm glad I had some contact with you earlier otherwise I wouldn't know who to go to for this. OK, very bizarre, but you apparently have a member on your staff, Sketcz, that decided to launch a wild attack with outright, intentional lies about me, my patches, and so forth. You can't write this stuff, wow... As far as I can tell, I did nothing other than offer to continue the Ys IV dubbing project with a fella that recently showed up (/forums/index.php?topic=89.msg3702#new).

First, here's the link:

He's blantantly lying, claiming that all of my patches haven't been available all this time and other wild shit. I'm going to post there in a second, but in case he just deletes me, I wanted to get you to talk some sense into him. My spider sense tells me he might've been trying to bait me into responding to him, but I'm not sure.

I made a post, but in case he never approves it, I'll add it on here for your viewing:
