You have no chance to survive make your time!

And a takeoff on that is "All your BASS are belong to us" *thumpthump, thumpthump*

My new motto is: "For Great Justice!"

Seriously -- there's no excuse for such bad translating, in any language. If you can afford to publish a game, you can afford to pay someone $100 to read your dialogue and translate it into something that makes sense in the terget language.

My boyfriend wrote a poem called 'Japanese Action Figure' (IV Lounge Reader, Insomniac Press) which is a satirical commentary on the translations on the action figures upstairs at the Silver Snail...the translations are hilarious. Not recommended for optional part small children cause harm, etc.

Nothing makes a good meme like a badly translated Sega game.
