Are comic books/strips cool?  Because I almost never see lowercase letters in those...
Title: Re: Why is all caps cool in Japan?
Post by: Setsuna F. Seiei on October 15, 2009, 05:20:56 PM
All caps makes it stand out more. Also makes things like in strips easier to read since all the letters are the same size.  In Japans case, It's not like Japan doesn't use lower case, they just don't care since it really makes no difference since it's the same letter and meaning either way. Unlike Kata and Hira which are used for specific reasons.
Title: Re: Why is all caps cool in Japan?
Post by: Keno on October 15, 2009, 09:30:58 PM
They should learn better & know when to use capital letters, like, I dunno, maybe with abbreviations & acronyms.
Title: Re: Why is all caps cool in Japan?
Post by: Girla PurpleHeart on October 16, 2009, 12:44:13 AM
They usually used lower case words when I visited some sites such as <Insert Japanese Text Here>English Text Goes Here. But I don't see much of the CAPS in some Japanese sites though. :/

You see, it's all that judgment of what they do and how they speak and how they ALLCAP things and how they drive that makes them want to withhold all the good stuff from us Americans when their games actually come over here...

The instant we learn to make love and not war with Japan is the instant my PS2/3 can has a happy time with Yakuza 3/4 and moar Sengoku Basara.

Siarnaq is okay. Everything else is awkward as hell.

I don't remember if Grey shouts GO!!!1 in my version as well, though that's only half the problem. Why is it that the Zero series is the ONLY MM series that got the combat yelling right? Omega sounds like he's spitting when he shoots those hueg blaster shots, and it still sounds 500 billion times better than anything ZX or X did.

Because it had Japanese "combat yelling"
ZX Advent had X7 combat yelling.

I like the ZXA voices. I mean, except for Grey, but he's lame to boot anyway. Who the [tornado fang] does he think he is, being built with scars?

At least it's better than that crap X screams when he uses the Z-Saber on a wall.

Grey was voiced by X7's X actor. who was terrible.
then theres Aile... she was butchered. for a little bit, her voice was fine, then suddenly, it sucked.
Title: Re: Why is all caps cool in Japan?
Post by: Keno on October 20, 2009, 06:41:18 PM
I never really minded lame voice acting in ZXA because I've always found the ZX games lame on everything except some character designs. Even the gameplay's way too easy.
Title: Re: Why is all caps cool in Japan?

ZXA on hard mode was annoying. since Model A sucks when it has no BME upgrades.
Title: Re: Why is all caps cool in Japan?
Post by: Keno on October 21, 2009, 05:48:17 PM
ZXA's stupid because of the WE being all wonky. Charge shots using WE? What the [tornado fang] is that [parasitic bomb]?
Title: Re: Why is all caps cool in Japan?
Post by: Flame on October 21, 2009, 06:04:57 PM
at least it recharges on its own.

And its not like ZX didnt have that either. the only difference was that X and ZX didnt use BME.
Title: Re: Why is all caps cool in Japan?
Post by: Satoryu on October 21, 2009, 08:29:55 PM

Not if use Giga Crush a lot. Upgrading BME actually made using that worse.

Yeah, the transporters in ZX should have refilled BME as well as LE.  Advent's wasn't too bad, but I agree that ZX using it for charge shots was kinda awkward after 4 Zero games and 1 ZX game of having it free.  The auto-refill was nice, but it hurts the Giga Crush.  There should have been a chip that increased the recharge time of the gauge, would've made things a bit easier.
