The Culdcept series rules. If you like board games, card games and screwing over your friends, there are few games which can compare. But, apart from a PS2 release and Culdcept Saga for the Xbox 360, predominately English-speaking Culdcept fans like the attractive and popular people pictured above have been left out in the cold.
Thankfully, some stalwart heroes over at GBATemp came to the rescue and have been working on an open translation of last year's Culdcept DS. While things look to have stalled out a bit on the project, all of the cards have had their mechanics translated. Individual card descriptions, story mode script and in-game taunts from characters still need a lot of work, but that's just icing. As long as I can play Culdcept DS, I'm a very happy camper.
If you can read Japanese, they have a wiki set up where you can contribute to the project. And you should, because Culdcept is awesome and you want to be part of something awesome, right?
