It's been brought up recently in the OT stupid question thread that there should be a gaming version. So I just figured I'd make one. Lets get the ball rolling!

So Zelda, she's like a witch or a ghost or something?

Enjoy the thread!

Can anyone tell me something about PSN? I'm wondering, if I play say FF IX with my discs on the Ps3 and save my game, is that save then compatible with the PSN FF IX if I choose later to download it? Also if I transfer the game to PSP, can I also transfer that same save as well?

According to various in-game references, most of the Zeldas have magic powers of some kind. These are especially strong is she possesses the Triforce of Wisdom, but have also been attributed to the Light Force or just Force in general.

Basically, she's a little bit clairvoyant in addition to knowing some powerful magic (strong enough to seal off entrances to other dimensions, sacrifice her own life for another's, manipulate the flow of time or communicate psychically.

Plus, she weighs less than a duck.

Keebler's Law of inverse anatomical proportions.

The smaller head suggests that they have a significantly larger phallus, and thus is a subtle way to suggest that these characters are virile and know how to satisfy a woman.

If the character is female, it suggests that they are dynamite in the sack.

In regards to Mario is he supposed to be human?

And are him and luigi the only people who can visit the mushroom kingdom? what if the whole game was them tripping out in their apartment imagining it all.

He was pluming in the original Mario Bros. Except instead of using tools, he just killed the problems.

- different business model (they wanted money from the user base on a monthly basis)
- they though they could get away with it
- I believe PSO v1 was free everywhere except Japan, PSO v2 was paid everywhere except europe.

Just because you transform names to english doesn't mean it's the correct way.

You got it right on Aran though.

Interesting. Haven't played any of the MP games other than a bit of MP1 so I wouldn't know.

They don't know how to pronounce the "A" correctly. Wasn't it the commander who said her last name? You can't get more American general than that.

This probably needs a thread lol

The question I always wonder about...

How the hell do RPG characters carry all the equipment you pick up. Especially JRPGs and the whole 99 of every item mindset.
