speak chinese like a native

iPad iPhone game

If anyone has an iPad or iPhone and likes old RPGs, chrono trigger is available in chinese translation in the app store (it's in Chinese as long as you set your iPad to Chinese, though I'm not sure this is determined by language setting when purchasing or when playing, safest to do both, or just leave it set).  

Very very fun, and the translation seems good (only mistake found so far is in the early 'trial scene' when they ask you something like '看到她的财产是不是让你眼红' they reversed the affirming/denial nature of the sentence, so 是的 is the right answer to deny interest in her money.  I got confused as to why the prosecutor was replying 你倒是挺坦白, though it didn't seem meant as sarcasm, so a reload replay made it clear...

Anyway, chrono trigger is a classic, and this way you can tell yourself it counts as studying;)

(secret of mana and one of the final fantasies, maybe 5, is also available in chinese, though very sadly, final fantasy tactics is only available in English)
