Capital Idea!

Hey Google

My question is: what do you think the chances are for SquareEnix to release a trilogy pack of Soul Blazer, Illusion of Gaia, and Terranigma? What do you think of those games anyway? Do you think there will EVER be a Illusion of Gaia 2 as promised in Terranigma?

And by the way, the quote is from Brave Fencer Musashi when you first talk to Mayor Govern to try to find out about the five scrolls.

You are correct sir. Have your tilde. ~

Anyway, while I'd rather see some actual NEW games out there, the remake trend still has enough steam that I could indeed see such a collection being released at some point. I'm not sure whether the games themselves have held up all that well, but it would still be nice to see.

Not the best person to ask it could be argued...

Hello Googleshng,

A few monthes ago my ps2 broke(very sad) and yesterday was my birthday. I heard from reliable sorces that my brothers are pooling there money together to get me a new one. Plus the addition of online hook up. (Yay!) So my question to you is what MMORPG would you suggest i should play that would be a good learning tool for a MMORPG NOOB like me? Any info you could give would be nice .Thanks

Generally speaking, if you're going to be playing any MMORPG, you're just going to be playing one. Their addictive nature and the fact that you'd fall behind on experience levels if you took a break means you're pretty much stuck with your first pick. Of course, if you'd like to get some idea of what they're like before making a commitment, there's hundreds of free online text based MMORPGs out there to experiment with.

That Anime Look

Hey! Google!

I have a small response for a letter answered by Cast yesterday, namely about the cell-shaded Toriyama designs. They already exist. Although not in an RPG (at least I guess it's a fighter, I've never played it), but in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2. Haven't seen actual gameplay but the screens don't look too bad.

Well, it's odd to think of the styles of particular artists being better suited to cel shaded polygons, but come to think of it, Akira Toriyama has a very angular style, which honestly would make things go rather smoothly. Same goes for Jhonen Vasquez really.

The Last Laugh:

Recently, a lot of people have been talking to me about Koudelka and Shadow Hearts. Odd thing to happen out of the blue. I'm fairly tempted to pick them back up now actually. There's nothing quite so amusing as fighting a boss, having your healer flip out half way through, and watching her run up and hit the boss upside the head with a bible, dealing a whopping 1 damage.

Googleshng "Whap whap whap!"

Silly ol' Alice.
