Let's Pilates cheaply, thanks to Amazon (and more!)

One year later: Mother 3 fan translation project



Convinced that Nintendo has no intention of ever localizing Mother 3 for release outside of Japan, fans of the Mother/Earthbound series have been working on their own unofficial translation for the endearing RPG. The volunteer group has put a year's worth of work into the project so far and is celebrating that milestone with two releases:
  1. An anniversary video showing the game played with an English script. It's a preview of not only the team's progress, but of the bugs that still need to be addressed at this stage. You can watch the three-minute clip after the post break.
  2. An updated menu patch with the most up-to-date translations for Mother 3's menus and chapter titles. Of course, this menu patch and the eventual full translation patch require an unauthorized, completely illegal ROM copy of the game to be of any use. Yarr!
Clyde Mandelin's celebratory post at the translation team's page also details the interesting events that went on behind the scenes, covering how the One Piece anime temporarily halted production and why Magical Starsign's failure to sell in the US could've doomed Mother 3's chances of ever receiving an official localization. As Clyde jokes, the project's history really does read like a spy novel!

Age of Hella Cheap Games, revisited

When we last fixed our gaze on Cheap Ass Gamer's list of DS discounts at Amazon, we were presented with eight marked-down titles -- two of which were worth your money, the rest being of middling quality. Since then, the thrifty tally has expanded three-fold, its ratio of rad-to-bad offerings also steadily increasing. Here are a few highlights from the 29 27-strong bargain lineup:

$2.99
  • Nintendo DS Lite Pro Point Stylus
$10.99
  • Bomberman
$14.99
  • Magicial Starsign
  • Resident Evil Deadly Silence
  • Age of Empires: The Age of Kings
  • Sonic Rush
As you probably already know by now, Amazon waives its shipping fees on orders totaling over $25. We can't predict how long some of these deals will last before going out of stock or returning to their original price, so now is not the time to be indecisive! Break your piggy banks open and run past the post break for the full list of games on sale.

Planets align for a Magical Starsign sale

If you're looking for a cheap adventure to sink your teeth into, grab a plate of Brownie Brown's Magical Starsign and a glass of milk. Amazon has discounted the Harry Potter-esque RPG down to $11.99 (free shipping on orders over $25).

Following the story of its Japanese predecessor on the GBA, Magical Vacation, players are tasked with tracking down their classmates after their magic school's fleet of space ships crash on a group of planets. Sounds like a lot to take in? That's why we suggested the glass of milk! Amazon's deal ends today, so don't dawdle if you plan on picking this one up.
