Why is Square makig Cloud into their mascott? Cloud is ok, but compared to
some other FF characters, like Cecil and Edgar, he sucks.
AK: Simple: Cloud's new and he's hip. People like the hair, and FFVII
is the latest thing, so he's the latest thing too.
I have been extremely interested in Square products lately,
particularly the FF7 action figures. Where could I get them?? I would
love to have a few, if not just to whup the tar out of my brother's G.I.
They've been released here in the states, so just toddle down to your
local Toys R Us or other toy store (or give them a call, save yourself
a drive just in case) and pick them up.
Well, since this is Q&AK, I might as well ask a question: Why are names
changed when video games are translated? Tina in Japan, Terra in America? I
agree Terra sounds tons better, but why do they change em'? Just seems odd.
AK: There are often various reasons for name changes. First is just
for Americanization. Also, names are sometimes shortened for memory purposes
(Chrono turned to Crono). And other times they're just changed because
the translators felt like changing them.
1)is it possible that nintendo and square could make a small agreement
to rerelease ff2, ff3, secret of mana, and get seiken densetsu 3
translated 4 the SNES for a limited time (kinda missed out on buying
them)? 2) is there something we could do to persuade them to do this?
3)do you like billy madison?
AK: 1) We all wish, but it'll never happen. Square feels it
just wouldn't be profitable. 2) Probably not. 3) I haven't seen it,
to be honest.
Hey AK! What is up? Here are the questions.
1) Why do these retards call Aeris Aerith and Cloud Clod? There is a Proud
Clod, but I have seen people call Cloud Clod! Someone is messed in the head.
2) What is your favorite movie?
3) How long did it take to get this site up to where it is right now?
1) Aeris was called Aerith in the Japanese version, so they're not dumb, man! But
calling Cloud Clod? That one's a new one...
2) The Naked Gun.
3) Andrew Vestal started the UnOfficial Squaresoft Home Page in May of 1995. You
do the math.
