Do you also read every post on IMDB for movies you haven't watched yet then get mad at them for ruining it for you?
I wasn't either guy, I was just chipping in. Was just confused until he demanded that the rest of the world make effort to not spoil things for him since he doesn't stay current. Hence my plan.
Looks like AP Ishida asked zari-gani to draw a picture for Kan's birthday cake, and it even got complimented by Abe. Pretty jelly.
Or you can use
fucking thisif you're talking about spoilers instead of being an asshole.
I'm the asshole for wanting to talk about recent stuff because someone else doesn't keep up and can't be bothered to not read spoilers?
Spoiling everything just to piss off whiny people like you.
Protip: If you aren't current with something, be it books or TV shows, it's unrealistic to expect for things to not be spoiled for you by the internet. People want to talk about recent things, as surprising as that sounds. If you fall behind, that's on you, not on everyone else.
We have the spoiler tag just for this exact occasion.
How can you be this autistic to refuse to not to spoil things for everyone who hasn't seen things yet when it is so easy?
There are people who are new to this series and are still catching up and there are people who don't stalk these threads every day to get the newest subs.
It's just a matter of not being an ass to not spoil shit for everyone.
This is basic 101 for just being nice to each other for fuck's sake.
>can't be bothered to not read spoilers?
That is the fucking point. You do not use the spoiler tag, so people will read spoilers by accident.
You have to put shit that will ruin it for everyone who hasn't watched yet into spoiler tags.
In the meantime let's watch some retro Japanese Super Mario Club game show:
At about 30:00 you even can see a prototype version of Mega Man X and Sound Factory.
If you're talking about non Arino stuff, there was actually a third episode of Gaki no Tsukai's Retro game Challenge.
We're still waiting for subs on this.
Previous episodes (subbed)
Pic great but unrelated
love the segment's title
The final stage in this fucking game is the most poorly-designed, piece of shit stage I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with in my life. I'd rather be fucking grinding in Gaudia Quest.
Reminder that detective game episodes are the best.
>It's a Yuuko Takeda segment
I guess you have to know Japanese to really appreciate these. I'm already terrible with remembering names, and worse with foreign ones. When he's rattling out who's who I get all confused and blank out. They cut out so much it's even harder to follow when you don't get all the clues. A lot of times he comes to some conclusion and I have no idea how he got there.
Maybe start with one of your favorite episodes or with a game that they know well, as long as it isn't a Zelda or Mega Man.
I think Prince of Persia and Ghouls & Ghosts are both great to introduce the show to almost anyone. Try Sonic or Battletoads if you want to go with something more recent.
>I hated the Tama-ge segments when she was on leave for maternity
I guess it was always about Takeda-san
If it's a close friend, just watch the Ninja Gaiden one, might want to endure the English narrator for its own sake, But Arino commentary is the most important aspect of the challenge to me, so it might not be a bad idea to watch the full episode subbed.
>The "in USA" narrator sounds like she's faking an orgasm throughout
Start with first season challenges because it's short and gives people the general idea what the show is about. I started with the first Mario challenge.
Then go with your favorite episodes. I went with Mighty Bomber Jack director's cut because there's no other segments to it.
This one really gets me.
I thought the same when I watched the Yuuji one, ended up skipping it after 20 or 30 minutes, but after I re-watched it and focused on the narration it felt quite entertaining, to the point I "deducted" the case in a similar fashion as Arino did, well, not precisely, but at least it did make sense to me and I didn't feel clueless as I usually get with say the quiz episodes where most of the time I don't even have a single idea what's the answer (not really a bad thing in this case, of course).
Yep, that sounds quite frightening, I can't wait.
I don't know, I find the quiz episodes a lot of fun, I don't really go into them trying to answer the questions though, since they are often about Japanese 80s and 90s pop culture which I admittedly don't know much about. It's just fun to watch Arino and the crew play these games together.
Exactly, The game play aspect of the quizzes is pretty much unimportant past some cases, but considering the format of the show, I only feel lost when I don't understand these questions as I normally do with a detective game or a high-text one when I don't focus on the dialogue. (or if I know nothing about the game that Arino's playing) Considering it's a fun show I usually end up reading the subs in a fast way and since English isn't my native language, elaborated dialogue would get misinterpreted by me.
Japanese use a lot of foreign words, especially English.
Also pic related is "Baumkuchen" in both German and Japanese.
They probably have a word for it too. Many times the same thing can be said in like two-three ways in Japanese; one more Japanese-like, one more Chinese-like and sometimes an English loanword.
I found this charming, I really don't get you and other people here that have complained about this, oh no, they use english words sometimes, how dare they sully the weeaboo image of a pure japan.
loanwords are common in pretty much every language though, I'm not sure how the idea of Japanese being more "pure" than other languages started, but it seems to mostly be a weeaboo idea.
I think it's the HD highlighting his OLDNESS threw me off too. Most other videos I've seen the video quality isn't that great and he actually looks massively younger than arino in them.
Tbh Gaki no Tsukai is on topic for atleast 80% of all people on here who watch GCCX.
It's the go to show for everyone who ran out of subbed Arino material.
GnT and GCCX just go together. It's been like this since even before we moved from /v/ to /vr/ years ago.
They even crossed over a few times.
Well I mean if the situation was reversed and it was a bunch of American dudes playing City Connection and they had to avoid hitting the cat instead of just yelling "cat cat cat!" they said "neko neko neko!" Even if they all knew what neko meant wouldn't it still be easier for them to say cat since it's their native language? Your brain has less to think about and when you only got a split second to react you'd want the communication to be speedy as possible. I don't know, it doesn't really matter, it just struck me as odd they just randomly started speaking English for that one part.
That cake looks cool. It starts out looking like a bunch of piled donuts but then you cut it and suddenly it's a crown. Pretty clever.
the thing is, they're not yelling 'change', they're yelling チェンジ. They're not 'speaking English'.
If you go to Japan and said 'change' they'd think you're speaking Japanese. Same with cheese, banana, milk... So many students I had were shocked to learn these words weren't originally Japanese.
Your reaction is like French going 'Why are they saying café, when it's coffee shop in English?'
I haven't been here in two months, but you guys are still bitching about the same shit. It's kind of comforting. Never change, /gccx/.
Loanwords can be very far from their English counterparts. Take the classic "viking". Have a guess what that means in Japanese.
A viking? Fuck no. Maybe one of their hats? Again, no.
No, Viking in Japanese means a buffet. The reason being, some Jap businessmen went to Denmark, saw a smorgasbord, and decided it was a great idea. After asking for the name, they realised it would be far too hard for Japs to say, so instead they just used the word Viking.
Today, many restaurants throughout Japan advertise lunch-time vikings.
Just because something's written in katakana doesn't mean it's a loan word. There are a number of reasons words may be written in katakana.
Also, like my example, ask someone if they think café is English, or typhoon, or tsunami, or tycoon, or kindergarten, or billabong, or guru...
Kanji are used for
Katakana are for foreign loan words mainly, but are also used to draw the eye in advertisements as well. You have a kanji for strawberries 苺, but it's still often written as イチゴ in flyers.
You're correct, but you're mixing up my two separate points. 1. Katakana for more than loanwords. 2. English speaking people probably think the listed words aren't loanwords/of foreign origin.
To add to my comment about students not knowing though, from a learning aspect, a lot of children are introduced to loanwords from their parents, teachers or on TV and through other media. They say these words naturally, and often, why should they not believe that the people saying them are saying Japanese words. It's part of their vernacular.
Japanese society is also still closed off enough to believe that things they see in Japan are, for the most part, Japanese. For example, so many Japanese people I met believed that Snoopy was a Japanese character. Same goes for Miffy.
The issue that they're not using 替えて, and instead using チェンジ is like using tsunami instead of tidal wave. It's just now become a synonym that can be, and is, used.
Also... it sounds 'funnier' for Japanese.
>This will never happen
I know these are oldish posts, but /gccxg/ isn't about who has seen the most episodes, and not everyone has seen every episode anyway. I myself enjoy the show but have only watched 20-30 episodes. I'm willing to bet that I'm not the only GCCX watcher who has never seen him play a shooter, or hell, there are probably plenty of people who have still never seen an episode. For you to just blatantly post spoilers like that more or less ruins a big part of the fun for those people.
>being a 450 pound fuck who can't even fit inside the booth and makes 8 trips through the buffet qualifies me as a viking in Japan
Awesome. This whole I've just been living in the wrong country. I'll head to Japan where I can finally revel in prestige.
>Also, like my example, ask someone if they think café is English, or typhoon, or tsunami, or tycoon, or kindergarten, or billabong, or guru...
This is a very poor example, English has no secondary language for loaner words so it doesn't correlate
Alright guys, >>2738052 here again, I'm genuinely sorry for this post if it spoiled it for some of you. I thought it was obvious what the turnout would be, especially like 10 minutes into the episode where
he has to continually use the Konami code to even beat any level. Even if he'd beat it with codes to me that's still not beating it, so I figured most people would think that too. Anyway I can't delete the post, so I don't know what to do if mods are fine with leaving it there. All I can say is I didn't mean to be an ass and cause a whole fight about it. The thought of it even being a spoiler at the time didn't even occur to me, so I won't do it again, but sorry anyway.
Next you'll tell me that バイオリン isn't how you say violin. The whole ヴぃ thing is interchangeable, ヴィキング is just an alternate way to say viking. The Japanese language is very restricted in terms of syllabary.
Arino seems to be hit and miss at random. He took down Prince of Persia, failed at SMB3. He managed to finish Golgo 13 and Ninja Gaiden 2, but couldn't clear Mega Man 2. I just don't fully understand his playstyle. How could you beat NG2 and not MM2? Go figure.
maybe it depends on where you live? I have no actual clue, but, where I lived in Japan when I studied there there was dentists around every corner for whatever reason. I must've been in the dentist part of town.
my guess is that because it's a TV show, someone is running metrics on whether Arino should win or lose.
Depending on what the perceived audience reaction is going to be, failing a popular game may be as popular (or more) than beating a hard game.
After all, the Arino we see on TV is a persona, and he's an actor and comedian. None of it is real; it's all just for fun.
I bet Arino really is pretty good at games, but you'd never know it by watching the show.
Nah, the outcomes are not scripted. He's just better at some games than others, and it also depends on how much the ADs help him. For example if he reaches the last boss, they often help him to get back because getting to the last boss and failing would be disappointing.
I don't understand how he plays on an lcd tv like he does without delay. I also wonder if he actually uses RF for the famicom or any console that doesn't normally have composite or if they just modded the console for composite or higher.
Looks like they use whatever they have working at the moment - we're talking about a three-decade old hardware, after all.
In some episodes, you can clearly see they using the RF Switch socket, while in others, there's some different cables running on the left side - probably modded consoles?
Watching the Gradius episode, I thought they unplugged the cables to shot the "Kacho On" scene, so they'd want to avoid cluttering the close up, but it remained unplugged for the entire episode, like the moments when AD Takahashi appeared. It wouldn't make sense trying to hide the mess just in that episode, but sometimes they conceal the entire back of the console too.
And that's valid reasoning, especially if we take all the TV production into account. But the way they constantly have to deal with daylight makes you wonder how much is this all scripted. One thing that leaves no doubt is how shooting can take a very long time.
>But the way they constantly have to deal with daylight makes you wonder how much is this all scripted
oh come on, one recurring joke means that the entire show is fake and scripted?
I think the 90GB TPB in the pastebin downloads is the biggest batch torrent out there. It's a couple years old. You can get anything subbed since then one at a time from the sa-gccx link right above it.
No no no, I'm not talking about THAT (by the way, that was a good joke and part of an awesome episode anyway - probably one of my favorite moments in this show). Besides at this rate, Toujima would probably get a nasty tan from using the sun blocking technique too much.
I was talking about how they used to rely on daylights, then had to add studio lighting kits by night, It's less noticeable in Seasons 17 and 18 - probably because the new room doesn't have Windows facing either east or West.
Pic related. We know for a thing this was one of the smaller rooms they used. No wonder Kacho had to resort to those cooling pads, with at least two studio lights pointing at his face.
what could be the best episode to watch for Halloween ?
Was party to a craft night a week or two back and made myself a perler of Arino from Mario Maker.
...I was proud of it. Had to use generic Glow In The Dark color for the suit accents because there are a surprisingly limited number of blues and it was the next closest thing.
It depends on how you understand as "remade".
Some of those games already had colored renditions by the time the GB version was released.
The Oni series basically was born and died within the Game Boy lifespan. Selection: The Chosen One/The Sword of Hope got a sequel on mobiles (pretty much colored). Donkey Kong 94 pretty much evolved into the Mario vs Donkey Kong series. The Monster Maker series had several colored games for Famicom, Super Famicom and one even for Saturn.
2D Classic Prince of Persia and Street Fighter 2 got colored ports/remakes released after those Game Boy versions, so, they fit, right?
Hey speaking of identifying songs, I've wanted to know what the pretty classical theme playing during the "Xevious Observation Log" sections are.
For example it plays in the Kid Dracula episode 26 minutes in.
NEW RELEASE: The old Konami triple header challenge from the very first season, in full with interviews and everything! I've been waiting for a long time for this to start!
Thanks, really cool episode. I usually feel like the first season episodes are kinda dull, but these interviews were great. Bittersweet though when comparing to Konami today.
Mr. Takatsuka's stories were pretty interesting.
SA-GCCX said they're running out of material to sub.
How many unsubbed episodes are there right now?
I'm getting worried.
Screenshot if you're not following the SA thread.
>We're running lowish on episodes to sub. We must complete a dark ritual and go way back in time to resurrect a long-dead episode format about a dead company.
That's really just part of a joke to explain why they're going back to sub an old overlooked episode. They're not running out, and Japan keeps making them.
>Konami and Capcom have both made some boneheaded moves in recent years.
I'll never forgive Capcom for killing off Megaman.
N E V E R
What are these and how do they taste?
I've seen them in Japanese variety all over the place. Are they just dough?
Third time running through the old stuff and I still find stuff like this.
>But I did it on my own, nobody told me to do it, if that was worrying you
Whoa, man. I almost skip a beat. Judging by how they're handling levels (I saw like, five of those "Star me and I'll Star you" stuff in the Featured tab), I wouldn't be surprised by that.
Let me guess, you're preparing something for Kacho to play on the 12/12 live, right?
Yeah, from my poor grasp of the language, the staffs were asking him if he would like to finish the game in 2 player mode but he flatly refused and said he will instead try to remember to call him out when he takes on "Bokujo Monogatari". I'm definitely sure it was "牧場物語".
