Hmm...a new idea
« on: March 06, 2003, 10:30:18 AM »
Disclaimer: No garauntees anything ends up or doesn't end up in the game!

But I'm curious, oh fans -

What do yout NOT want to see happen in another KQ game?

(yes, yes, we all know you want to torture Connor. I mean something OTHER than the MOE mistakes we all know and dislike!)

heehee, i'm a rabble-rouser:)

Well, Cross-dressing is ok if done tastefully I guess...I remember reading a very short fanfic about Graham cross-dressing...That's why I mentioed it...I'll see if I can find it in my files, I used to print out a lot of KQ stuff.

Well, KQ6 has an optional ending (although not the best scoring ending) where Alex dresses up in a lady servant's clothes to sneak into the palace... ::)

I forgot about that!  Now that you mention it, in the KQ6 hint boo, one of the clues for that part is "You know Alex, you'd look cute in a dress..."

I wonder what Cassima would say if she saw him dressing like a woman...he'd have some 'splanin to do!

AND I don't want to see something like what they did with KQ2+, where they vamped two innocent women and let the vampire rule the land... :'(
It really bugged me. :o

I don't want ANYTHING like that part in KQ4, where Rosella had to go through the dark caves to get to the fruit on the other side. It took forever to get through without being eaten by that horrid monster, I kept having a heart attack when it would show up outta nowhere.

Also, in KQ5 where the monsters get you from mysterious portals, that was a bit freaky too but at least it wasn't as bad.

I get quickly scared/upset by very sudden scary things... :P

I don't want any lousy voice acting!.....

One thing I HATED about ME was the endless.....endless...endless gray and uglyness.

Please:HELP KEEP DAVENTRY BEAUTIFUL!

I take it for granted you wouldn't dream of adding any bouring and cliched monsters.........(like in ME)....Yawn!

I can garauntee you good scenery. One, because the art team is of such a high caliber and doing such a great job on all of it! And two, because there is such a diversity of scenes and locales, I promise you won't be bored with it! ;D

No usless Items!  No red herrings!  And no dead fish! (though we all know Graham must like the smell, because he picked up TWO in KQ 5...

there will be a couple of monters. There's some "adventure" action. (You know, the one that keeps you tense but you have to use your brains instead of space bar to shoot everything that moves). Sorry oldbushie, it does get scary at parts!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA :)

There will be very dreary scenarios, but it's perfectly balanced. You may be in for some shocks, tho... ;)

sure, no useless items!!! I always HATED those!

Well, Items that you don't need but COULD be used for an alternate solution are ok though (such as in KQ 1, you could put the giant to sleep with the fiddle, or you could just wear the ring in which case you don't need the fiddle, but it still had a use).

One thing that puzzles me now that I mentioned dead fish...Doesn't either Mordark or Manannan SMELL Graham carrying it?  I figure Manannan would, and alert Mordak to Grahams presense at least...

I just thought of another thing..for Graham, PLEASE dress him in something OTHER than that red tunic and those ugle blue pants.  He seems to like that outfit for questing..but I don't.  I'm not a big fashion person, but red with THAT blue is a no-no.  So can you make him at least LOOK like he's not colorblind?  He taste of clothing seems to imply that....

Aw, come on. If he wore anything different, no one would recognize him! How do you think he fooled the guy on the death boat in KQ2?

How about if he wore a red lumberjack shirt (plaid) and blue jeans? Is that better?
