I'v seen this (lego) video:

And now i'm really tempted to try it out myself. But can someone please translate the "readme" at 1:50? I think that would be really important to know before i invest a lot of time and cash.

THE iDOLM@STER 2 / New English Idom@ster 2 Wiki
« on: January 04, 2012, 01:12:22 pm »
Through a post on the GameFAQs boards I found this Wiki

It seems to be a pretty complete translation of the japanese Wiki minus a lot of the XBox information. I offered the creator my help to add some information from my own experience in the game and got access to edit the wiki, so as a disclaimer, i'm working a bit on it as well. I want to promot this wiki, because a) it's more comfortable to use than the japanese wiki + google translate b) because i don't want the effort the creator made go to waste because nobody knows it and c) as a help to promote Idolm@ster for people who don't understand japanese

Heya everyone, let's start with the more formal stuff ;)

Sex: M

Q: How did you come across this site?
A: Some Idolm@ster SP guide mentioned it

Q: Why did you join this site?
A: I'm really into Im@s currently, and i'm a forum junkie

Q: Do you play it?
A: Yep, i do. 2 months after the release of Idolm@ster 2 on the PS3 i'm on my 5th playthrough with about 95 hours spent with the game

Q: Who is your fave idol?
A: definitely Yukiho, the second place is shared between Hibiki and Miki

Q: Why is your username "Naryoril"?
A: I don't know how many years ago i started playing Ultima Online on a free shard. My first (and only serious) character, which i ended up playing for 5 years, had this name (it was an elf and the name came from a name generator). I stuck with it because this name has NEVER ever been used by anyone else, so if i want to register on a website and it says it's already in use, i know it was me and i can try to log in ;)

Q: What are you in to right now?
A: Im@s ;)

Q: What is your motto?
A: There are 2:
1) "The world ends with you. If you want to enjoy life, expand your world. You gotta push your horizons out as far as they'll go." - Sanae Hanekoma, The World Ends With You
2) "Tu etwas ganz oder gar nicht", i think the best translation (not literally) would be "Do something with all your heart, or don't do it at all"

Q: Who's your favorite singer(s) right now?
A: Honestly i'm not really into music, especially not into single artists/bands. I often listen to JPop on J1 FM

Q: What are you up to right now?
A: I'm just on a break at work

Q: Do you have any expectations from this site?
A: Having interesting discussions about the franchise and learning stuff about the startegy

A bit about my Idolm@ster history:
Ever since i learned about the game i'd have loved to try it out, but i didn't want to buy a console only for it (a japanese XBox 360 or later on a PSP). When i found out the games are available as download titles in the japanese XBox markteplace i was happy and hoping i could avoid the region lock, so i bought (overpriced) japanese MS points just to find out the download version also has a region lock. I researched a bit and found out that the XBox apparentely uses your IP to find out in which region you are for download titels. So i went through great lengths to connect my laptop with a japanese VPN to get a japanese IP and then connect my XBox through my laptop, so my xbox also had a japanese IP. Only to find out that at least Im@s also checks the region on your console, why the hell ever they do it for a game like this they never intend to release outside of Japan...

A while later Dearly Stars was released and i imported it. In the end i didn't play much, because i didn't get at all how it worked and i couldn't find any information on the net on how to play it.

I didn't import SP either, because i didn't own a PSP.

When i found out that Idolm@ster 2 was announced for the PS3, which doesn't have a region lock, i started thinking about getting a PS3. When Ni no Kuni and Tales of Graces F got an announcment for an english release and the price was slashed a few months ago i decided to get a PS3 and orderd Idolm@ster 2 for it. I wasn't disappointed by the game, i was even surprised on how much fun it is and i'm set on getting the platinum trophy for it.

When they released the new PSP model (the one without WiFi) i also bought a PSP, because it was pretty cheap and ordered Idolm@ster SP: Wandering Star, it should arrive here today or tomorrow, i also intend to give Dearly Stars another shot (but before i get into the handheld Im@s games i want to finish Tales of the Abyss on the 3DS).

On a side note: About 13 years ago i'v been taking japanese lessons and in the mean time i intended to pick it up again several times by self studying, but i never stuck to it. After playing Im@s 2 i decided to finally get back to it. My goal ist to be able to read light novels, understand games, animes and Shizufumi Ishido-sensei (a 8th Dan Hanshi iaido sensei that sometimes comes to Europe to teach the iaidoka here), so i picked up the self study again and in about a month a japanese class i enlisted to will start. I intend to join that class until a private teacher i asked has a free spot, because private lessons can be tailored to my own abilities and goals (which is largely understanding japanese, and less speaking/writing, with a higher empaphis on non formal language than you'd have in a class)
