There are translations at Gamefaqs. Is that what you're looking for?

A fellow named Kayama has done some VERY excellent translations of the first four games, complete with all the choices available during almost every LIPS scene. Highly recommended, and probably the closest we'll ever come to getting the game in English (although FUNimation has reportedly been trying to gauge consumer interest on possible PC localizations of the games, so there's still some hope left...)

Hmm. Maybe I shall get around to playing the these games...you know...since I actually bought them in a DC-death enduced nerd-frenzy. When the red haze cleared I was left with a lot of games that I paid too much for and never got around to playing. Do I like strategy games and dating sims?

I hate dating sims, and am not that experienced with strategy games. Somehow, these got me. THe thing I don't like is, that the first two games that capture the whole Japanese theme to them, have the crappiest strategy portion. The 3rd game is set in France, but gets a much-needed boost to the action scenes. Haven't played 4 yet. :/

Some dating sims are ok. I like it how Japanese Anime girls act so eccentric (eg screaming and over-reacting.)

In my opinion ST3 is the best one. I thought 1 and 2 were kinda fun but they didn't really do much for me. (One big reason is because Iris just pissed me off so much) However I decided I'd give it another go and went with 3. Its hard to describe why, but 3's cast and overal "feel" just seem so much more fun to me. Hell I liked it so much I actually bought the PS2 port for some reason. The cast also got me to play ST4 and Mysterious Paris. I would personally not recommend ST5 though unless you're a big fan of the series, the game just tries way too hard to be American :roll:
