The overall story is nothing to do with but many sidequests are funny and unexpecting. They make at least the first game more nice.

This would best be done by someone fluent in both russian idiom and english idiom (definitely not me).
And remember that text is not only storyline but also technical comments, terms, help etc. And it should be synchronized over the game: naming the same object by different terms can be strongly confusing (as my experience says).

As for idioms I doubt they can be "translated" at all. For example, the shoal of fishes ablility of Slim besides its plain translation "hell's shoal" in Russian slang has two more meanings: 1. "very strong narcotic cigar"; 2. "critical error". How would you translate it?

You may like it or not but writers have very specific style and humor which in many cases is hardly translatable.

But if the English translation is really grammatikally inkorrekt some additional plain professional korrektions is definitely good idea.

This should be a stand-alone add-on. At least it is planned for now to make it this way. We will make an announcement if anything changes.

I am sure I would play it even in Russian, with dictionanries on my lap, that's for sure.

I just hope 1Q Y09 does mean January, not April 29th

Anyway - my christmass is screwed - not that playing KB for xxx th time would be bad, but playing Armored Princess would be just HUGE way better.
