Googleshng - 4:00 EST

Not a lot of things bother me, but when I have an inbox full of something like, say, "What, you don't remember eating chocolate in Secret of Mana?" for an entire week, when I was well aware of it to begin with, and didn't suggest otherwise. For what it's worth, I also recall the "chocolate" from Dark Savior. Now I banish the topic of chocolate forth into the abyss of uh... things I don't want to see a dozen of in a row. So uh... The Abyss Of All Your Base Jokes. That'll do.

I had no idea that anyone from RPGamer would come to a convention on our college campus. It truly is a small world!

I had no idea that someone could go to Vassar, read this column, and not know that I've been a guest speaker for the last 4 straight years. I mean, I certainly hype it up enough...



DWAAAAA!


I'm I the only one who is now craving a candy bar?

Oh, and you probably shouldn't have mentioned the bathroom thing, as I'm sure everyone will be writing in about FFVII.

~Chrispex, like the cereal... except manlier.

Or one of a dozen other games, yes. That's partially my point. When someone says that something can't be found in any RPGs, either they don't mean it literally, or they're forgetting some. I can name you a few games with bathrooms, chocolate, female main characters, main characters who are straight up mages, silver haired pretty boys who aren't the devil, silver haired pretty boys who are LITERALLY the devil, but these things are still oddly uncommon... well, except for that last one.

In regards to Emerald_Mara85's question about chocolate, chocolate and candy are both actually used as healing items in Secret of Mana.  Maybe some other games, too, but that was the one that immediately jumped out in my head.
 
Okay, now here's a question.  I've been on quite a Capcom stint lately; I've played RE4, Onimusha 3, and BoF 2 & 4.  I was wondering, is BoF 5 any good?  I never got around to playing it.  If it wasn't that good, got any other rpg recommendations?  I really liked the combo system in BoF 4, and I have both PS2 and GC (already played Tales of Symphonia, another game in which I enjoyed the combo system).

BoF5 is... different. Take a BoF game, inject a pretty strong concoction of Resident Evil juice and a bit of Tactical combat. I rather dig it myself.



Downers


Hooray for Laputa! Although id have to say Princess Mononoke is far better.
So, ive noticed that most rpgs end on a happy note. now thats all fine and good, but ocasionally i like a dark depressing ending(thats the goth kid in me talking there). Can you recommend any rpgs to me that end on a down note? id greatly appreciate it. Also, i know one of you question peoples liked the postal service, they rock! Can you recommend any bands that are anything like them(other then death cab for cutie)?
also, you ever listen to apoptygma berzerk or freezepop? they both rock too : )

thanks for your time

The only bands I ever recommend to people are Bond and They Might Be Giants. I know less about bands than many deaf people. This may be related to me not owning a stereo, or really having access to one since 1988 or so. Anyway, if you want some depressing endings, well...

Bigtime Spoilers For Lots of Games

Here, I won't put spaces in for extra spoiler thwarting. Finalfantasysevenkoudelkaphantasystar2thewholelufiaseriessecretofmana. That should be a good starting point for you.

Good to know my work is appreciated.  Can you hook me up with an rpgamer prize?

I get a lot of randomness like this every day. Particularly today. You didn't say chocolate though, so have a cookie.
