You're older than you've ever been and now you're even older...
Greetings (Ilpalazzo sings) Googleshng
I have to note that today is my birthday. How did someone give you the
means of being able to go to Anime Central next Spring? What is the deal with
In order: Happy birthday then. Basically, someone vollunteered to pay my way to ACen on the condition
I wear a decidedly uncomfortable costume the whole time. The "real deal" with Nabeshin is that he's Mr.
Burns assitant. He's in his late thirties, single, and... dagnabit I forgot the rest of the quote.
RAR WEBMAIL SUCKS!
Dear Googleshang, lord of lime and lemon-colored jellies,
Okay, right to the point. First, I am willing to look for this part of your
latest rant up...
"...and then I'll have one less one-eyed...
whatever those things are called... staring at me. You know, I seriously need
to write it down. I know their significance, I know they're in Alex Kidd and
Spirited Away, but I can never remember the name. Rar."
Can you just explain to me what Alex Kid and Spirited Away are? That would
Alex Kidd is a side scrolling platformer for the Sega Master System (technically there's 3 of'em but only
the first was worth playing). Spirited Away is the latest Miyazaki movie, which I believe is playing in
various artsy theaters around the U.S. at the moment. In any case though, the things in questions are
little disembodied monk head statues that only have one eye painted to guilt trip you into finishing something,
at which point you fill in the other eye.
Second, do you seriously hate fan-fiction crossovers? Without the irony, do
you hate them or not?
I don't hate any variety of fanfics, on the grounds that I don't read fanfics. Although I suppose I hate
the variety that covers things like say... "The Erotic Adventures of Calvin and Hobbes" on principle.
In any case though, it'd be extremely hypocritical of me to hate wacky crossovers when they factor so
prominantly in my life.
Third, can you explain the gap from 10/2 to 10/5 in the Q and A column? I
cannot figure it out...
It's due to the lack of anyone being around to handle this weekend's Q&A and some odd timing.
Fourth, what do you think of limit caps in RPGs? They obviously affect the
strategy in playing the game since you need to tailor your game hero or
heroes to whatever big boss fight or challenge or side quest comes your way
in the game. Anyway, what is your opinion on this?
Honestly, I can't figure out what you mean by "limit caps". If you mean having levels cap out at various
intervals in a game, I'm the one who first brought that issue up here, so yeah I'm for it. If you mean
some sort of system where you have a fixed number of points you can move around to customize characters
or something, that's good too. If you mean something else, you might want to rephrase that.
Finally, can you put up a link along with answering this letter to that part
of your ranting homepage where you get spare change since people can give you
money to help you buy Kingdom Hearts faster? You REALLY need to get this
game soon, its just UNBELIEVABLE!!!
Nope. For two reasons. Reason #1- While I don't have a problem with sticking a tiny little link in the
corner of my personal page so people can throw money at it if they really dig it, it goes against my
personal code of ethics to, say, link to it from here. Reason #2- The server hosting my page is down
at the moment. Of course, when reason #2 goes away, I'll post a link here to the rant I'm waiting to
upload, which will have that little cash type link in the corner, so that all works out.
One more thing...know of any Fanfics which star Calvin and Hobbes as the hero
and Rosalyn the babysitter as the badguy??? THAT would be fun to see in a
Final Fantasy setting...imagine Sephiroth getting pounced and mauled by
Hobbes while Calvin leads Aeris to safety right before he stabs her in the
City of Ancients? THAT would be very funny...
Thanks for your time and effort in answering these questions.
Even if they were silly to some extent..
P.S. CRAZYTOWN RULES!!!
And a bonus question...any other interesting fan-fics would you like to see
existent besides the one with Lulu and Kimahri in the 1930s Chicago? I would
like to try my hand at writing a fan-fic or two...not a crossover-type,
however!!! I draw the line at that...and I could use some good
ideas...besides that...interesting Chicago one...to start writing fan-fics
Uh, see that earlier response where I said I never actually read fanfics.
I was just wondering that will the Grandia Xtreme come to europe or not? I'm
big Grandia fan, you see =)
And do you know any european releasedate for these games: Star Ocean 3: till
the end of time, Wld Arms3 advanced and Suikoden3
As far as I can tell, none of those games have even been confirmed for european release, let alone given
dates. Of course, I'm told the release schedule is picking up over there, so the odds of them coming out
aren't as bad as they used to be.
