The Japanese ROM hacking community is very interesting. I find it funny that they have translation patches for games that were improved for the western release, like this one that turns Zelda 2 back into Japanese.

How do I get gud at fighting games? I was recently playing KOF 2000 and I realized I suck. I routinely find myself button mashing and just adding credits whenever I lose, so I only beat the arcade through sheer attrition. How can I get gud at fighting games? Especially arcade one's without a training mode.

Now Japan Is Getting Fucked By Collectors

No.10850791 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Oh great, it's bad enough the collectors that hyper-inflated prices of retro games have fucked things up for us here in the US, now they are fucking over Japan with their bullshit too.

I would also like to point out these three quotes from the article where this is specifically about collectors:

>"A year ago, there were tons of Famicom Disk System games, but this is all that’s left. The PS1 section is half empty. The tourists have taken everything. I don’t bother shopping for retro games in big Japanese cities anymore."

>"I saw a guy just taking everything off the already paltry DS shelf. There [are] tons of people like him and very little anyone can do because it’s obviously not illegal. So I don’t even bother anymore."

>"I should specify that if you’re a tourist in Japan and buying these games because you genuinely want to play them, I don’t have an issue with you," Jia says. "It’s the people who clear entire shelves just to scalp them online when they get home that ruin the hobby here for everyone."

So where was that bubble bursting again?
