Well, here's something you might consider about the origin of the name
and concept of the Chocobo.
I'm an aide at the local public library, and as I was shelving books
earlier today one of them caught my eye. It's for young children and
it's called "A Mother for Choco" by Keiko Kusza. In the publication
information it says that the English version was published in 1992 but
an earlier version was published in Japan in 1982. Choco, the
protagonist of the story, is a plump little yellow bird who could
perhaps pass for a Chocobo (at least, much more than those strange ugly
Chocobos in the FF Anime).
Either this is just an odd coincidence, or there's something about
Japan's culture that causes them to identify yellow birds with "Choco."
Hey, sounds good to me. Anyone got any contradicting info?
I've always loved video games, but I didn't really become 'hardcore'
until recently. Now, I'm watching the Saturn slowly choke out of
existance, and I'm wondering... I've heard a whole lot about cool RPGs
and other games for the Saturn, but mainly about the RPGs (especially
this "Panzer Dragon" recently released). I'm forced to ask: did I miss
out on something truely cool here? What was your opinion on the Saturn
RPGs, and of the system in general? Most importantly, if it was very
cool, is it too late to jump on the sinking ship and enjoy its remains?
To be honest man, I don't know much about the Saturn myself. I know Dragon Force
is supposed to be good, as well as the Phantasy Star, Lunar, and Ys series. I'm
not sure which are for the Master System, Genesis, Sega CD, or Saturn, though. It's
never to late to jump on the ship, though. You can find a Saturn pretty cheap ($50
to $80 probably), and games are cheap, too.
Hey KA! =) I'm just wondering what the hippest dude himself thinks about
those hip new iMac computers from Apple. (http://www.apple.com/) And,
probably the more important question: Boxers, or briefs? -"napuK"
Hey, long time no talk buddy! Man, I'm not THAT hip... except when I'm
wearing my bellbottoms and sequins. But let's not get started on that. Those
iMACs have a cool looking shell, but how are the insides? And more importantly,
how is the development support? Macintoshes are like Beta VCRs if you ask me...
could darn well be the better peice of equipment, but equipment without
support just isn't any fun.
As for boxers or briefs: the boxers or briefs question is a
very simplified version of a much more in depth issue. My watered down
answer: for everyday comfort, boxers. For activities such as basketball,
Meanwhile, thoughts on Panzer Dragoon Saga are starting to flow in. Thanks
to the allpowerful and majestic Andrew Vestal, I'll have a copy in a few days (his
copy on loan). If you've got it, let me know what you think!
