What's this chap's name? I note the page is called "Yusef Tpalour", but the screencap about the character redesign doesn't support this. Shouldn't it be what the DVD says? Or am I missing something? Vympel 03:20, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
- No, you're right, i/we just didn't get around to changing it. Feel free to do so if you'd like. (I have been on a video-game kick lately but i expect i will lose interest in the next few weeks and get back to editing stuff like this...) ♥ kine @ 18:31, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
Heh, I'm on a video game kick permanently. Currently replaying Witcher Enhanced Edition so I can import the save into Witcher 2). Vympel 00:10, 7 June 2011 (UTC)
- It's not worth it. W2 ignores W1 stuff. And is so short playing it near to W1 will make it seem that much more underwhelming....
- Should've corrected myself - before, I had only ever played the original Witcher, so that was another incentive. Also I just wanted to refamiliarize myself with the world, it had been so long. Vympel 03:23, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
I think the correct spelling of this guy name is: Yūsuf Topaloğlu, a Turkish name, though this guy is blond, and I thought Turkish are... Middle East Asian, black haired? or I could be wrong. Maybe Yūsuf's dad was a Turkish, and his Mom was a blond :p Anyway, I know this from:
Checked Topaloğlu on Wiki and Google, the results showed various Turkish guys, so I think it's correct. The remaining problem is, I couldn't get an IPA transcription on how exactly Topaloğlu is pronounced, so I can compare it with the Katakana transliteration. I mean, we can't be always so sure. Maybe I'll check on Turkish phonology and it's writing/romanisation system on Wiki later. I think that "ğ" doesn't sound like English "g". Anyway, I think Topaloğlu is the correct one (80% sure). It certainly looks better than Tpalour or Topparol.
Oh and more stuff for background info:

Just for reference, here is a comparison shot of LaserDisc Yusuf versus DVD Yusuf. ♥ kine
