That Mario Fighter bollocks really topped the cake, I'll say. (><)

@Shiru: Do you know if there are any plans to subtitle the new Battletoads video that was uploaded a couple of weeks ago?

This video is from Kinaman's other series that has two videos so far, it is of 'let's play' kind. I'm not really feel ready to translate it yet, as it is long and complex (live dialogue), but I consider it, if people think it could be interesting for them.

A new episode is out and translated. It is about the infamous, the most difficult game for Dendy/NES that everyone know for sure - Ghostly Village.

Episode #4

Oh dear, 20 FPS games on a Dendy? Down to 16FPS now?

Edit: Not that bad actually, it gives you more reaction time for an impossible game.

I have a rant about frames-per-second ████-waving ready to flow from my fingers, but I won't litter this topic with it.

LOL at the end of that video. Mowgli is now a furry.

Kinaman currently runs few related projects in parallel. Here is an overview.

- 'Dendy Chronicles', a scripted series that is focused on specifics of Dendy gaming - pirate games, problems, absurdity, etc. New episodes come out rarely, like once per two months. It takes that much time because people who helps Kinaman to film it are living at another cities, also because props needs to be prepared (bought and delivered). Kinaman does not even own a camera yet, although he going to get one soon.

- 'On the Kitchen', an unscripted let's play series. Kinaman with a guest beats a difficult game, or not so difficult one, but in some special way, using a real Dendy. This series is scheduled one per month - althouhg it still involves filming and help of other people, it takes less time to make.

- 'Kinamania Live' is a realtime let's play that uses an emulator. It is mostly Coulthard's project (one of guys that helps Kinaman), they host it together and beat two games per episode, while answering chat questions. Games that are played here are selected of those that aren't suitable for other projects (too easy, too good, etc). This is not strictly scheduled, but may be 1-2 times per month.

- 'Dendy Memories', the most recent unscripted series. Kinaman tells stories about his own gaming experience with Dendy and certain games. No schedule is given for this series yet.


As for translation, 'Chronicles' are easiest, because it is scripted, so it is well structured and worded. 'Memories' are more difficult, because it is unscripted, with pauses, corrections, and thoughts not always worded well. Both let's plays are really difficult for me, because it is always two hosts, they constantly interrupt themselves and each other, and sometimes talks too quiet as well.


Here is the first episode of the 'Dendy Memories' with subtitles.

The sixth episode is translated. As it was announced in the previous episode, it is about Aladdin games.

Besides the english subtitles, four first episodes now have spanish subtitles by Emiliano Figueroa.

I had no idea they would do something like the solder blob to select games!
