|Oh the pain... the pain of it all!|
Googleshng - March 22 '00- 1:30 Eastern Standard Time
I was woken up at like 7:30 this morning by my mom's alarm clock,
downstairs, behind a closed door. She slept until 11:30. For the record, that's about 5 hours of
sleep for me. What do I wake up to? A lack of Brad's column. I'm going to assume he's face down
in a ditch bleeding to death or pinned under some debris or something though since he isn't the
type to mysteriously disappear without notice. Still, Between that, the resulting lack of letters,
lack of sleep, and a few other things that don't concern you, I've had a massive headache all
night. It's starting to get better though, so I'm no longer clutching my skull in pain.
|Told you so.|
Albiet the story is a little over a week old now, its still better to
get the correct info up.
"News of the North American Fox Television network's alleged acquisition and forthcoming broadcast of The Vision Of Escaflowne TV series from Bandai Entertainment is meeting some interference this week in the form of new information from Bandai, it seems as if information that came to light from the Fox press conference last week maybe premature:
- Contact with Bandai indicates there has been NO official announcement stating that Escaflowne will air on Fox Kids as of yet. Their position is one of stating No Comment at this time.
- Allegedly, at the FOX press conference stating the acquisition of Detective Conan for Fox Family Channel, the person heading those projects spoke of Escaflowne. There may have been a misunderstanding that got out in the form of an incorrect statement of acquisiton."
Hope that clarifies things for that matter.
Now that's out of the way I was wondering what you, and the rpgamer community in general, feel about having spoken dialog and songs in RPGs left in Japanese with subtitles where necessary? Lunar is tollerable (except for the hackjob of the opening song *cringe*), Thousand Arms is painful (though at least they left Hamasaki's songs intact), Star Ocean 2's battle voices ruined what was otherwise a wonderful game, and I don't think I even ought to mention my feelings on the Rhapsody preview movie. With anime we have the choice of sub or dub, why not have the same option with our games? Especially this is the case for the next-generation consoles where the disks are large enough to store both English and Japanese dialog (Sonic Adventure for example). So, what do you say, should we start petitioning gaming companies for this option?
Hi there! (Oh god, far too cheerful) Uh...hi. (Better) You're interesting
little Lunar movie disc trick worked well and I saw the Xenogears movie, so I
thought, "What a neat trick! I'll try that with my other games as well." I
tried it with all of them. It only worked with both Xenogears discs and the
demo disc that came with Parasite Eve that had the Xenogears demo on it. Am
I doing anything wrong? Anyway, next question. Is it at all possible to
cheat at the roulette in Alundra? Please give me the answer or I'll sick
Elmo on you. Thank you for your time and attention.

is there a purpose to get

i've wrote you before
but you refused to post my
plea for an answer
The Oracle, Brad Lohr - March 25 '00 O oops. I don't know how, but last night, I
totally forgot about writing this. So here I am, doing it later in the day.. and probably messing
up my chance of doing a decent one later on. Doh. I hate that. Anyhow, not a lot going on..
just busy weekend.. but I got my tax return. Yay. And Front Mission 3, (though I haven't
played it yet.. ) .. anyhow.. I'd better get going with it.. here we go!
I beat FF Tactics yesterday! It was the only thing that left me speechless
when the words "The End" came up. It's probably an overtalked about
subject, but that was the best game I've ever played in my life. Well,
maybe not better then Xenogears but definately as good.
|Battle of the musicians|
Just wondering...what composer do you like better: Nobuo Uematsu or Yasunori Mitsuda? Everyone says Nobuo because of Final Fantasy, but I like Mitsuda better. I think his songs are extremely beautiful and emotional. Just listen to the Chrono-trigger or Xenogears soundtrack. Don't get me wrong, Nobuo is a talented composer too, and I do like his music. It's just that Mitsuda struck a chord with me.
So... Brad wants to be a time mage... and I agree with him! I'd cast SLOW and finally get around
to beating Grandia...
|I also voted for time mage. I mean, I don't find the need to kill stuff or heal stuff around the house but manipulating the flow of time has all sorts of uses! As for why so many people voted summoner well, a lot of them are probably drooling fan boys who think that "Shiva iz h0t!" 8)|
The Last Laugh:
I can't believe I actually managed to pull this column off on time. Although the severe pains in my stomache, forehead, eyes, and hands are telling me I need sleep. Ooh, pretty spots! Also, CC is back, see?
Also Silkenray made this creepy little MP3 she wanted me to post but I seem to have misplaced it. I expect her to hack into my column though and put a link to it right here for you. Good night.
