Machine Translations are still (not) fun – But these are important links.

You may have seen a few of these JP site links on the list of links to the right.

Tonight I’ve decided to try using excite to translate them. Here’s some results. In the meantime, I will describe each site’s contents.

SFC MANIA – This blog has some neat pictures of Satellaview games, as well as links to zoome videos of BS Kirby on Omachahako. These videos are great to watch, as they show more of the simple Kirby games.

– A website which has a list of the Satellaview’s “Soundlink” broadcasts as well as schedules for a lot of the months the Satellaview was functioning.

SATELLAVIEW HEAVEN – Another blog. This has info on games like BS Simcity and SatellaQ, and it has pictures of Satellaview merchandise; likely, prizes from the game contests.


Machine Translations are (not) fun.

I’ve decided to try to sue Excite’s Machine translation to translate the Japanese Wikipedia article on the Satellaview. I hope it’s good for something!

EDIT: I’ve now alos looked inot the RANDnet Article.

There’s also a set of articles about some of the Satellaview broadcastings.

Listen to BS Fire Emblem Audio Samples.

Having a bit of a Fire Emblem fanboy in me, I very much giggled with glee when this was uploaded on NicoNicoDouga: These audio snippets are from portions of BS Fire Emblem. It’s very easy to see how this audio drama enhances what looks like a mere maprun on the ROM dumps. 😀 Read the rest of this entry »


At the Auctions – Tamori’s Picross cart.

I tried making this noted in some other forums to no actual avail, so I guess I’ll try here….

This Yahoo Auction is for an episode of “Tamori’s Picross”, from the premiere date of airing in 1995.

I can’t get much info on it, except for what’s at Jupiter Corp’s website. As far as I know, it is a rare find.

I’d appreciate if someone could dump the ROM in it, if possible.
