Yay, another Cedric fan! !!!

I just like how Cedric manages to sound British, high-pitched, and cowardly at the same time. ;) And he *does* heroically save Graham's life at the end. :)

Cedric's voice was good. I never had a problem with it.  He had a big attitude problem though. ;)

I liked the Green Isles too.  Wish there could have been more with the Sacred Mountain and the Isle of Mist.

The portraits aren't good though!  I don't like the dialogue portraits!!  :'( :'( I want GOOD dialogue portraits!! >sobs<
Then again, I still don't like Cedric.  With a voice, I can't even *imagine* what he'd sound like.
Actually, I can what with the Madness of King Graham in KQ2+....that is Cedric's voice.  And GAH!
But not as bad as Connor's, all things considered...

BTW i will not show any affection for Connor :P

Post by: Storm on April 28, 2004, 08:04:59 AM
Cedric never struck me as wise. He's mostly cowardly and stating the obvious  :P
Title: Re: The Cedric Fan Club! XD XD
Post by: Questing Character on April 28, 2004, 01:38:23 PM
I agree with Storm.
"Look Graham, a POISONOUS snake".....that's wise?
Oh, and...
"There's nothing but a hot dry desert to the west of here."
Or...
"I had a bad run in with a dog once."
I think that last one may be the wisest thing he ever said.
Title: Re: The Cedric Fan Club! XD XD
Post by: Questing Character on April 29, 2004, 06:49:41 AM
And again I say....How?
"Is that a new dance? The BUG-a-loo?"  Well, gee, that was witty, almost, but how did it seem wise?  :-\
"Lets turn back!" (at Mordack's Castle) Uhm...did he miss the whole adventure GETTING there?  Why would *ANYONE* say that?
And don't get me started on his directions...when he's paying enough attention to give any...
Title: Re: The Cedric Fan Club! XD XD
Post by: racx_00 on April 29, 2004, 08:15:26 AM
I never said that Cedrick is wise listen to what he says, i just said Cedrick looks and seems wise if you look at a picture of him b4 even playing the game

(resurrects thread from the depths of cyberspace)

OK... I *finally* got around to finishing KQ5. Laugh all you want... I've been busy. :P

Consider yourself lucky. KQ5 is better without the voices  ;)

I can now say with some certainty that this is true. :P My friend Spikey wasn't kidding when he said they were laughably bad! Especially the narrator.

My other friend also wasn't kidding when she said Alexander's voice actor was poor.

Josh was much better as Graham in KQ2+... most of his lines here fell pretty flat, IMHO.

As for Cedric... 95% of the time I couldn't even figure out what he was saying... of course, 99% of the things he said weren't important, so I guess that works out. Actually, I couldn't figure out what 80% of everyone else was saying, either.

(Note to self: Buy the disk version. You were going to have to anyway.)

The only worthwhile voice bits were the ants' song at the haystack, and the Weeping Willow's song. Of course, the Seiberts sung those, so that probably had something to do with it. OK, the gnome and the toyshop owner were nice voice picks, too... unfortunately it was sort of ruined by the lousy recording quality.

Peace & Luv, Liz

Heh, I'm actually really happy that I had the disk-version that had no voices on it.  This was the first KQ that I played on my own computer, and hearing terrible voices might have ruined the whole experience for me.  :o

Ignoring the horrid voices, the game itself was pretty good.  Of course, when KQ6 came out, it blew this game out of the water, but at the time KQ5 was "totally awesome, dude".  :P

What gets me is that Space Quest 4 was mostly "amateur voices" too, but it was actually not bad. I guess they learned a lot in a year. :P Granted, the kookier nature of SQ probably helped, too. (And springing for a wicked good professional narrator... ;) )

Ignoring the horrid voices, the game itself was pretty good.  Of course, when KQ6 came out, it blew this game out of the water, but at the time KQ5 was "totally awesome, dude".  :P

Heh. I could buy that it was great when it first came out, but I could make a lot of nitpicks about the puzzle design now. :P

Heh. Not only those, but also the fact that many of the puzzles you really could only get a clue about by dying first. (I've always had the bias that I want to be able to believe that the character really could have gotten through the game on their own, with enough ingenuity and maybe a *little* luck.) Oh, and a lot of puzzles/items you ended up solving/picking up just because they were there (and didn't find out the motivation for until long afterwards), although you could chalk up some of them to the fact that Graham is just a Nice Guy (TM).

Oh, well. Still not the worst game I've played.

Title: Re: The Cedric Fan Club! XD XD
Post by: Yonkey on July 23, 2004, 11:10:27 AM
That's true.  I don't think it's possible to finish KQ5 without dying at least once by accident.  Also, I don't know anyone that completed it without the use of a hintbook or walkthrough, just because of the abundance of illogical puzzles. :-\

I like Cedric. I don't see why anyone would have a problem with him.

Have you played KQ5, with the voices turned on? ;)

Rosella might be annoying in KQ3, but she's only annoying for a couple of screens at the end... Cedric is annoying throughout the game :evil:

Maybe so, but how many people have told you they couldn't finish the game, because of Cedric(I've heard it said countless times about Rosella)?

Post by: Jeysie on August 23, 2004, 05:27:30 PM
Sure, you can fail the game due to Cedric... if you don't rescue him after he gets injured the first time. ;)

Personally, I would love to claim that I couldn't finish the game because I could barely understand what the heck Cedric was saying... except for the fact that Cedric never said anything important, so it doesn't matter. :P

Cedric 4 Life, bizatches.  *makes some kind of gang member hand gesture* 8)

Yes, Cedric is annoying at times, but mostly because he slowed down the game when Graham changed scenes.  

I thought Cedric's reluctance to take risks was refreshing; adventure game characters are often too anxious to do dangerous things.  "Hey!  Let's go into this hot, forbidding desert from which no one returns so we can stumble across an obscure inventory item!"  :P

And don't forget: A lot of things about the KQ universe may be darker or reinterpreted.  Maybe Cedric will have a personality makeover, too.

I think Cedric is cute in an obnoxious kind of way. he is funny, with that high pitched wimpy girlie voice of his. "Hoo, look out Graham, a poisonous snake!" he's not that good as a guide, and is too cowardly to follow you into most places, like the town, the desert, the haunted forest, etc. I imagine my new cat would like to go after Cedric.

Reasons why Cedric is more awesome than most people 8):

1)  Outfit.  I mean, c'mon, he's got the monocle, the little blue vest - he totally has it together!  He even has the moxie to not wear pants in public.

2)  Common sense.  Some people mistake this for cowardice.  However, neither Graham nor Cedric have any discernable reason to, for instance, lollygag through the Desert of Endless Restoration, so can you blame Cedric for staying behind?

3)  Flying.  Can Graham fly?  (The intro doesn't count.)  For that matter, can you?

Can anybody think of anything else?

Obviously the reason why he refused to follow Graham into town, the inn, the desert, the woods, etc, was because everyone there was already wise to him.

Post by: Dirk Delshire on January 28, 2006, 11:06:36 PM
LOL, I personaly think Cedric was just there for comic relief. And also why he came off so bad is because the sierra team just used people at the office who didn't have any inkling of how to act. Useing a trained actor's voice might have helped his image as a comic charator and not a girly owl with a whiney voice. Just imagine if he my a proper english accent. He'd probably come off a bit more like C3PO from starwars. Think about it. C3PO: I'm not going that way!

Post by: Moodyblues on February 24, 2006, 08:34:45 AM
Yes.  I think he also served as a hint system, too; Sierra figured that young players might need to be told the obvious every now and then. 

For me, Cedric pretty much fails at being funny or helpful, but I still like him.  He's like a dorky kid brother who just wants to help. :)

Cedric was annoying with his cowardice, he was too afraid to follow me most places. And his high-pitched squeaky voice was annoying. But I did think he was rather cute. I like birds. I like cats too, and cats eat birds. My cat Missy had beter not hurt my cockatiel Precious. Cedric might look wise, but he really is not. My favorite animals are mythical ones, the unicorn in KQIV and the crystal dragon in KQVII.

Ya, it is another KQ5 dead end, if you forget to get the hook, you can't get the cheese, and therefore you can't beat the game(rotten cheese acts as a catalyst to the strange contraption), :p...

In that game you pretty much can't miss any item or its a dead end.... The only points you can miss, is beating the game without tripping the henchman, or bagging Manannan.

I can't remember that was a long time ago. It might have been the same one you get if you get caught by Mordack anywhere else in the castle...

Is it me, or was the cheese puzzle a bit obtuse? I mean there was no clues suggesting the use of the cheese in the machine anywhere was there? About the only reason a person would try dropping the cheese into the machine is cause its one of the last items in the game that hasn't been used yet(at least that was how it was for me)...

One of the things I find amusing in the companion is Graham is always thinking about how annoying that darn owl is. Though we find out towards the end he begins to warm up to him, and is certainly greatful the bird saved his life.
Title: Re: The Cedric Fan Club! XD XD
Post by: Deloria on April 23, 2006, 10:43:56 AM
In the companion it also says Cedric was turned to stone as opposed to dying.
Title: Re: The Cedric Fan Club! XD XD
Post by: Baggins on April 23, 2006, 10:45:49 AM
Actually the full description for what happened to Cedric reads, "fell to the ground lifelessly". Later it says he was "returned to health; he had not died", and then it mentions he was turned to stone.

I don't remember if Cedric was killed, or just injured badly in the game, and you can't get a good look at him. Don't ask me why he can take the blast of the wand, but Graham dies(disintegrated IIRC) if you get hit, ;P. Maybe familiars are made of stronger stuff. Maybe it was Cedric's power of annoyance. You can't get rid of annoying things you can only slow them down.

All I can say its probably a good thing that the spell didn't turn him to "stone" instantly or he'd probably have shattered into many tiny cedric pieces when he fell to the ground.

I like him too, he's just really fun to make fun of, ;).

Yes I really like him, one of the reasons I liked KQ5 so much when I was younger was cause you essentially had a sidekick to talk to, instead of just adventuring alone in the world (even if Cedric forces you to go solo multiple times throughout the adventure, since he is overly cowardly).  :P
Title: Re: The Cedric Fan Club! XD XD
Post by: Deloria on April 23, 2006, 11:33:42 AM

Cedric wasn't so bad. sure he was a coward and most of the time useless and he made lousy jokes, but i liked him. like baggins says, you weren't alone. i was but a young fing back then, and what with all the dangers and death lurking just on the next screen, he was a comfort.

Yes I really like him, one of the reasons I liked KQ5 so much when I was younger was cause you essentially had a sidekick to talk to, instead of just adventuring alone in the world.

But he was a totally useless sidekick! Gameplay-wise, if you bother to implement a sidekick, you should make it useful for something beside slowing the game down with its entrance animation on every screen and making pointless comments. Otherwise, you're just going to frustrate the players because it seems like a great feature, but they can't have any meaningful interaction with it :-\
Title: Re: The Cedric Fan Club! XD XD
Post by: Baggins on April 23, 2006, 03:24:26 PM
It was just a sense of feeling that I wasn't alone, where in  previous games the characters never had anybody with them. It was just them against the world.

Sure he was useless but he was there, it was somewhat comforting. Even if I was getting him out of more trouble than he was helping me.

Speaking of useless junk given to you by Crispin, he gives you his wand, and you can't do anything with it really, until the very end, :-p. At least in the disk version of the game the wand was used periodically throughout the entire game, and was tied to the copy protection. At various points the game something was broken,  or you weren't strong enough to move something, and you had to cast spells to get by certain obstacles in the game.

That reminds me of an hilarious thing I used do at the harpies island...
After picking up Cedric you can walk off the edge of the cliff (to the lower right of the screen). Graham throws Cedric into the air and then both of them fall over the cliff.
It's even better if you watch it at the lowest speed!!   XB

Now what does exactly happen if you don't pick up Cedric and try to finish the game? ??? I've never tried to do that...
