The patch? Yeah. When I saw there was one, I decided I was going to play the game again AND I was going to get a good translation of the text this time!

And while driving home tonight, the weirdest thought hit me.

1. The dragon has sealed Evan's cave, keeping what's in in and what's out out. For you to enter, she basically has to release the seal and end her life.

2. You first encounter Barubari/y as a child in the cave next the village with Evan's cave.

3. And then as a boss in the depths of the cave at the end of the game.

So if it's sealed and the all-powerful Evan can't get out, how can his right-hand scaly critter-demon buddy bounce back and forth without a fucking care in the world?

EDIT: Oh yeah, the only part of the retranslation I don't think I liked that jumps out at me was Evan's speech before the fight. Replacing "and now, he is dead" when he's talking about your comrades with "erased from existence" doesn't work for me. I preferred the brutal simplicity of the original.

I'm not afraid to die because I am invincible
Viva la muerte, that's my goddamn principle

The translation should've kept Katt's name instead of Rinpoo :(

Also, I think the Normal ending is the best ending. The tragic sacrifice and all that is a lot more powerful than the nominal 'Good Ending'.

At 9:55:00 PM MST on April 5th, 2005, Venter finally defeated Phantom!
