By Garnett Lee, Apr 13, 2012 11:00am PDT

Andrea, the two Jeff's, and Garnett waste no time getting right to all the new info on Resident Evil 6, Lost Planet 3, and Devil May Cry coming out of Capcom's recent press event. They also have a few quick updates from a similar event held by Namco that unveiled a PC version of Dark Souls and provided an update on the status of a western release for Ni No Kuni. We also get a first look at FEZ and Andrea shares some of what she saw at PAX East, including the awesome-sounding indie, Super T.I.M.E. Force. There's much more along the way as well before putting the Finishing Moves on this episode.

  • In regards to Dubbing and Reading Disabilities

    First I acknowledged Garnett’s argument about the extra effort to dub being a cause to not publish a sequel to a game later on. That’s NOT what I’m going to argue with.

    When I hear someone shoot down dubbing I get frustrated. It doesn’t matter if it is a valid argument about the economic that would better sustain a series or a hard core fan who is bitching that anyone would plays a Japanese game in anything but its original Japanese. None of those augments takes into account that dubbing is also an aid for those with reading disabilities.

    I am a dyslexic adult and I can certainly read but not as quickly as many subtitle movies require. If the pace of a subtitled movie becomes at all fast I get lost trying to keep up with the dialog and miss out on what is visually happing. It is just not fun. Historically this hasn’t been an issue with video games that told most of the story in text that I could read at my own pace and hit “x” to continue. Now with the beautiful cut scenes we have today its just as frustrating as watching a subtitle movie.

    Thoughts?

    • Thanks for highlighting a problem that a lot of people, myself included, probably hadn't given much thought to.

      Makes sense you'd want subtitles. I'm sure there's a LOT of people with similar impairments that share your situation. I guess you need to get some people together and makes some noise at publishers, saying some things like 'hey, myself and my friends here are all paying customers and we'd like to buy your game but ...'

      Also, it's an irony that someone with adult dyslexia seems to communicate with more finese than a majority of the Internet. Well done.
