|| Ask Google
and Zucot one last time
Googleshng - January 3 '04- 2:00 Eastern Standard Time
Well... that was a rather unexpected vacation there, thanks to the mail
server blinking out of existence and all. Sorry about that. In any case, roughly a week late, here's Zucot.
Zucot: Why are Harvest Moon games essentially the same thing every year, but still
so addicting every time? It's kind of like sports games, but in a farmer
sort of way. Ahh well, back to my GBA.
This issue is a bit out of date.
Read a few days ago about your explanation of that one "Chrono
anime that one guy was talking about. Chrono involves time yes, but
doesn't mean the anime has to involve time travel, it could involve
characters abilties to stop time or something, or that time could stop
randomly at a time, because stopping time whenever would be cheap.
Also, everyone making the topic about characters being gay. Just
the one guy that gives you Musik on Phantasy Star 2 is sexist and you
to pay less for guys(or girls, I forget which) doesn't mean he's gay,
haven't played that game in such a long time, so I don't really
But there is Gremio, where you said the one guy forgot to add him, and
other guy said because he's worried about the master then he's got to
gay. Just because he's cautious about the master getting hurt,
that he's gay, it's his job, and they're like family, so of course he
cautious. It not like a guy gets hurt and he's all over there,
the story he's not. So since he was helping Teo since the main
was a child, he was like more of a father than Teo was, Teo being one
great generals and all.
That's my opinion, it's not like he was ever hitting on anyone in the
at any point during the game. It's not like Cloud in FF7, with the
clothes, and the stuff they let you to say to Don Corneo. I mean, not
during any of the story did Cloud even make any remarks towards Tifa
Aerith except when Aerith is like, does Tifa like you? And you get
choices of something like who cares, or, let's hope so!! So yeah,
one or two choices about flirting with Tifa and Aerith, but the rest
game(the other parts outside of midgar), he does nothing of hitting on
so he's one character some people would call gay, except stupid fans
think FF7 is the best game in the world.
Here's how I read this letter:
"blah blah blah gay, blah blah blahblahblah gay, blabbity blah blah gay."
I mean, does it really matter? The only way I'll believe a
character/person/entity is gay, is if they come out and say it. I think
that part of the reason these things aren't really defined when it comes to
created characters is for the creators to give each individual their own
"take" on the character. Its a way to draw the audience in, make them feel
more connected. Things get stupid fast when people shout their opinions
from the rooftops...
Well the point with Gremio is that he's always on such lists, be there grounds for it or not. There
are seriously a lot of other issues concerning RPG characters worth more thought than this though. I
mean, the average RPG only has 2 characters with any sort of romantic involvement at all, so whether
people are gay is largely academic. If realism is weighing on your mind, I'd be more concerned with the
lack of bathrooms, or the generally low populations of towns, or for that matter all those economies
which run completely based on you killing monsters. How about the fact that every town has a store selling
one variety of each type of weapon your characters happen to favor, but you never see one grocery store.
Someone had too much sugar.
Hurray hurray for Squeenix. Now I can get my mitts on FF Anthology
Chronicles and dump my SNES with Secret of Mana as my only loss.
Yaaaaayyyyyyyy! Happy birthday to me na no da~!
Playing FF5 after watching Return of the Kings is a weird experience.
sounds good with Samwise's Irish brogue, but I wish Faris didn't go
lot. (Sentence carefully crafted for those of you who are still yet
discover the secret of Faris na no da~.)
My new year's resolution is to buy FF7 and play it for more than an
not care that I already know what's gonna happen, and see what
that...whether it's random squealings of "Onii-sama" like Nanami
marathon arguments with the TV. Last year, it was Lunar Legend, and I
up hating its guts and wanting to see it get run over by the
Anyways, I am twenty-two today, I have been reading this site since
Unofficial Squaresoft Homepage, and that's seven years yo! A good
(almost) of my life! And many more! (raises her Michelob Ultra na no
Bucket Mouse (na no da~)
Happy birthday. I'll have a drink in your name. Return of the King is way
too friggin long, not to mention some people I sat near turning it into a 3
hour long homoerotic joke.
Oddly enough, I keep hearing people say they thought yon movie was too short. Go figure.
Just wanted to say that I was reading some of the news on FFXII
recently, and it has me very excited. I was reading an article on
this very site when I saw that there was likely to be a large cast of
characters, and the battle system would involve lining up in two lines
to face the enemy. That sounds like old school FF to me. Could they
be trying to return to some of the old school FF goodness. If so, I
think it could be very exciting.
What say you?
(The subject of this email is Final Fantasy Ten Eleven)
Uhhh do you mean Final Fantasy Twelve? We're about nine or so games away
from a Final Fantasy Ten Eleven. Half of us probably wont even be alive by
the time that would come out...
And I think it's too early to speculate on FFXII, wait till E3 or so, then
more info will be available.
Wouldn't that be Final Fantasy 1011? That'll take significantly more than 9 games. Anyway though Eggman,
by that logic, FF10 is an "oldschool" FF. For that matter, so is practically every RPG ever made. Takes
a bit more information to get me excited.
WE FRIED SANTA!!!!!!!!!!
This just occured to me with the time being christmas and all again.
come no RPG ever had a christmas time in it or christmas theme for it
around? Im not talking about leveling up Santa Clauss to fight the
and discovering treasure chests with magical herbs that when planted
into presents for children. Nor am I talking about you goog,
questions to brighten our holiday spirit. I want NPC's enjoying
they never seem to have much life. But maybe thats because the NPC's
meant to be low lives like bad neighbors and add a sense of reality to
Santa Claws the Insane
P.S. Just purchased Chrono Trigger for SNES off of EBgames for $39.99
as how I can profit by selling it myself to a desperate person without
fossil. Shipping was free also. What do you think of that? Merry
Have you not played Secret of Mana? You had to
pretty much rescue Santa in that game...
Well well, lookie here, some poor soul trying to make money off of a game
that used to be high in demand. You really wanna make some cash? Try
Suikoden II... that thing sells for well over 100 bucks these days...
There actually are a few instances of Christmas in RPGs, like the one mentioned by Zucot there, or Parasite
Eve. As a general rule though, you aren't going to see it, since the vast majority of RPGs aren't set
in the real world, and thus have their own holidays, which you don't generally see coming up either.
