Hullo Hullo TAY! How goes it?

I’ve been playing Puyo Puyo Tetris for the past few months. First with the import copy and now with the newly localized version that came out on Switch and PS4. I didn’t make the connection before when I was playing in Japanese, but now that the English dub is out, I’m recalling past times of less-than-stellar dubbed games. There’s something very familiar about all of this even though I can’t quite put my finger on any particular release.

It could very well be a Sega game of yore. Maybe Taiko Drum Master? But I’m loving it. And how not so great this all. It’s not the worst dub ever, honestly. It’s decent! Certain charm to it, in how the game looks and sounds. Simpler times, honestly.

In addition to the Puyo, I also had a flashback from childhood when I ate a KFC Zinger on Monday. Not really though because unlike the Zingers of Trinidad, where the sandwich is popular as all heck, this newly released one for the US is terrible. It’s not as crispy, nor is it as spicy. It’s a little bit spicy but not a tasty spicy as I’m used to. For shame! Ah well.

For Today’s Suggested Topic(s):

  • What was your favorite game from childhood that probably wouldn’t hold up now?
  • Jill Sandwiches aside, what’s the best or worst dub (English, Japanese or other) you’ve heard in a game?
  • What’s your favorite childhood comfort food?
  • What’s the best sandwich?

Will always be great
