Description
Take a linguistic journey through video game history with the Legends of Localization team in This Is a Book of Bad Video Game Translations! Japan's love of "decorative English", a long list of misleading loan words, and the tight deadlines and shoestring staffs of early game development created a new video game dialect that is beloved - and still spoken - to this day.
