More cut scenes of Alex feeling destitute and wishing for freedom, for one thing ;-) Cut scenes of him as the eagle or fly would be great!! Get a bird's eye view when playing that part of it...that'd be awesome.

Alex having to maybe do more in town...save the people from the bandits somehow, for example, and get an item that way.

hmmm!

And a cutscene with his birthmark? (ducks and runs)

As soon as the phrase contest was over, I thought of this: Aww, Rosella, do you have to see it again?", or something like that.

Uh......no, Jeysie, no.  We're talking about adventure gaming, not porn.
I definitely more to do in town would be nice.  Perhaps drawing the town like it has more than two buildings, even, would be a nice touch.
Hmmm...perhaps adding something with the barmaid?  She was always just *there*, with no real purpose.
Maybe a bit more with the three bears would be cool...
As far as the desert, here is my idea so far: A mummy.  The only mummy we see in the whole series (to my knowledge) is that mindless one in KQ4.  How about having to set a mummy to rest?  In return, perhaps, it could give you a way past the giant spider that doesn't involve turning into an eagle (because I thought that was a stupid way of getting past the spider).

Plus Yonkey could just split this thread if he decides it's too off-topic  :)

It just occured to me that the most government Llewdor ever had was Mananan watching over it.  There must have been more to it than that...but what?  Any thoughts?

Sure, you could include a mummy, but wouldn't it be better to expand on the Medusa? maybe give her a nice castle in the desert you have to infiltrate to kill her... that mirror thing was just too easy  :-\

Now you're reminding me of my brother... he has a Simpsons quote for everything  :P

BTW, you should name this thread KQ3+ or KQ3 VGA or something that would indicate it's a remake we're discussing, not the original game  8)

I suppose I'll go ahead and supply the obligatory, "What were you going to call it, Yonkey?"

"You down with KQ3?  Yeah, you know me!"  XD

Ok, it was a bit too cheesy, so that's another reason.  :P

Quoting "Naughty By Nature" lyrics, Yonkey? Wow, is that so 80's! (Early 90's? Drat, I forget. It's old, anyway.)

 ;D

I think it was early 90's. <3  But also considering the seriousness of this thread, I decided against it as well.  ;P  Ok, I'll stop talking now since we're going off topic.

I haven't played KQ3 myself yet, so I'm pretty eager to see the AGDI remake of it.  I never played KQ2 or 1 either, so their remakes were really great for me!  :D

I've played a little bit of KQ3, but that's it. I hate text parsers, though, so I'd be very happy for a remake as well. ;)

I've downloaded KQ2+, but I haven't had time to play it yet, still. I'm itching to, though, from what I keep hearing people talk about it!

Peace & Luv, Liz

Well, see, I havent' played KQ7.  Had I known they'd done something like that, I wouldn't have suggested it. Hmm, I suppose I should've known they'd done that.
If it involved the medusa, you'd need a reason to go into her castle.  Maybe you have to get the snakeskin from her head!  No, I'm kidding.
I know there were other ways of getting past the yeti, I always used the stone.  But I think that there should have been a better way to get past the spider.  Maybe something else using the eagle could be involved.  Maybe that's how you get into medusa's fortress?

They should get rid of the teleport stone. It was dumb and pointless.

They should make the magic map take you all the way to the top of the mountain  ;P

I second that!  I hate that mountain!  Why can't Mananan live on the same level as everyone else?

It would also made his telescope rather useless ;)

I vote they cancel that mountain path altogether. It's stupid enought that it's there in the firstplace - Manannan doesn't use the path himself, and Alex isn't supposed to go anywhere... Manannan must be some kind of an idiot not to block it :P
The only way to go down/up the mountain in KQ3+ should be either magic map or flying as an eagle... kill that awful path!!  :P

Agreed, a cool variation in a KQ3+ would be NO stupid mountain path and instead have the ability to get the magic map or the transport stone all available on the mountain itself, just tricky-like ;)

I would make it so that you can make the teleport stone on the mountain, that it will *only* take you to the bottom of the mountain or to the top!  But, yes, any way of getting rid of that *awful* path would be an improvement!
