I'm not sure what you guys mean by "original title"...

Maybe you mean "previously translated title that I'm used to".

We are talking about the original japanese title. Technically, all of these titles are translations of the original title, it is just about what words (grammer and meaning wise) fits best with the english language and culture.

If anything the original translation is shaky, considering the japanese title is referring to the capital (as in the capital city), so kingdom doesn't really describe a city. It still works and makes sense, and many people would prefer it, but it is not exactly accurate. That is not to say it isn't the best choice... That is what this poll will determine.

God Warrior of Aspia.

It still has that charm to it, the others sound cliched/boring.

We have a tie at the moment :)

Although, if you combine "The Titan of Aspia" and "Titan of Aspia" which are pretty damn similar, we see that almost twice as many people like that slant as like TWotK.

Anyway, Lee's back at work today so will have a go with the title images soonish :) Wanna get the washing up done first ;)

Another couldn't be added at this point while still maintaining a fair vote...

I think the title is on this page, so vote now.

I'd agree with this one, the japanese name means "God Warrior" plus it sounds better

In case some of you missed Aspartate's description of the title in the other thread:

Aspartate:
Title of Scenario 1: 王都の巨神
王都 = capital of a kingdom, or just a capital. Either way, Moogs is right- it's referring to Aspia City.
I wonder why it's called "God Warrior of the Kingdom". Maybe because it gives a better ring than "God Warrior of the Capital"?
Anyway, the Titanic Warrior is a legacy of the Thousand Year Kingdom. So "of kingdom" could still make sense.

巨神 = Short for 巨神戦士, which is Colossus in English Scn 1, and Titanic Warrior on SF3 cards.
巨 means gigantic, huge, great, etc. 神 means god, godly, supernatural, superhuman, etc.
Holy doesn't seem quite right. Unless a evil deity's belonging is still considered holy.
From my point of view, it got its name because of being gigantic and overwhelming, rather than being divine. A similar term also appeared in "Nausica? of the Valley of the Wind".

Just had an idea.

Why don't we have each one as a sub-title, just people decide which one to choose before they burn the CD, but just have one as the major "Official" one?

Feel free to tell me to sod off.

I thought of that a while back, but I didn't dare mention it :shifty:

My first thought is that I wouldn't ask Moogie to do more than two... and I would only ask her to do two because the other one (the most popular loser) has already been worked on and seems to be pretty close.

On the initial main group vote, the two were pretty close and I know there are some team members that prefered the old title.

I don't see any harm in giving a few people the other title. Kind of a limited edition thank you for your work on (or support of) the project. I don't think it should be made perpetually available though. One time deal to make it special.

I'm sure some people would disagree, and I can see why, but I personally think it would be ok.

I'd be happy to do a bunch of them, especially as I've been so slack the last few weeks and done nothing for this! Just let me know which ones I should do and I'll get on them ASAP - though it probably won't be until next week now as I've got a busy few days lined up!
