The Joystiq Show - 003: Localization of the Damned

This week, the Joystiq Show talks localization. From the cry of gamers wanting Nintendo to bring niche Japanese games stateside, to inside information straight from the localizers themselves, we have the topic covered from all angles. Is Catherine the first game from Atlus to include underwear in a special edition? You'll have to listen to find out.

Also, stick around after the main show as Mark MacDonald from 8-4 joins a lengthy Spoiled Rotten roundtable on Shadows of the Damned.

Part 1 (2:50) - Operation Rainfall

Part 2 (15:10) - Atlus on Catherine

Part 3 (28:40) - Mark MacDonald of 8-4

Part 4 (52:30) - Spoiled Rotten: Shadows of the Damned

Let us know what you think of the show in comments. Also, we still need some sweeter than sweet art for The Joystiq Show, so you creative types should get on it!
