    Interesting comparison, though honestly I think our changes are for the better. Even the Barney stuff got a laugh out of me when I first played it, I can't really picture Lunar with boring NPCs.
    Virtually all of those changes are for the better, except for those nudity edits. WTF, there was no benefit from the boob edits.

    All that effort to compare that stuff. What a waste. Funny how it's listed as "Working Designs" and not 'US'.
    I agree those nudity edits are stupid.
    Nobody will tell me how to live.

    But that would be too helpful.

    Well this is interesting!

    AND, I ONLY HAD TO SACRIFICE
    10 BARNEYS ON THE BURNING
    ALTAR OF RAGE!

    THAT WAS DEFINITELY PURPLE
    WELL-SPENT!
    I love this. This is the type of jokes I liked from Eternal Blue. Compared to the original, I prefer what they did in English. It adds a fun flavor to something that is still getting the message across. However, this next one:

    HEY! HEY! THERE'S A PARTY IN
    MY PANTS AND EVERYONE'S
    INVITED!
    Compared to the original, I prefer the original in this case as I cannot see the need to completely change it. Unless maybe a bunch of characters around this said very similar things.

    Oh, the thing about greasing the door for Borgan is great too seeing the original, I'm glad they added it.

    Personally, I didn't like the real world references, they broke immersion and dated the game. I'm a bit confused about the edits to naked Lucia, considering they ADDED IN arguably more suggestive dialog.

    It's for these reasons I prefer the remake. Just me onion.

    I agree with this 100%, but I know it's probably not trivial to get done or else someone probably would have done it.

    I don't blame WD for a lot of the balancing tweaks they did because the US is a lot different market than Japan, and they needed to keep sales up (without returns) to be profitable. It didn't help that there was always a time and turnaround gap that was fairly large with early games since everything needed to get back to the original devs in Japan to be done.

    All games should be localized in this fashion, boob edits excluded obviously.

    Or in the case of REALLY badly written games, outright change the entirety of the script and plot.

    To be fair, having to pay to save your progress is incredibly inconsiderate of the player's time. Having to replay parts of a game because you couldn't save isn't difficulty--it's tedium.

    This always made me curious about how others had it with this feature.
    For me, it was totally fine. I would never play this game for just 5 or 30 minutes. I'd sit down all day. Besides, I was like... 13 years old, so I was basically a kid with all the time in the world

    I'm not against its removal simply because I understand not everyone has my playing style or available time, but It would bring a big wide smile to my face if I saw this return in a remake

    I never had an issue with not being able to save when I wanted to, but I was annoyed when I first discovered it.
