Just finished Ep. 2! Thoughts
« on: November 10, 2010, 02:17:43 PM »
First and foremost, again, Episode 2 awed me with its beauty, its adherence to the true heart of the KQ narrative, etc.  I have a few thoughts that just simply popped into my head during/after:

There have been mentions and general connections to
Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

Crispin from V.  Genesta from IV.  Oracle from III.  Rando Fairie Near the Church in II. 
Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

I've heard that Cedric the Owl will not be making an appearance.  Could there at least be a reference to what he's up to?  e.g. Still mozy-ing about in Serenia with Crispin.  I'd be content if the reference was even just in the Four Winds.

The Winged Ones are a bit haughtier than they were in VI.  I knew they were always prideful and considered themselves "purer" than humans, but they seem to act with a bit more disdain this time around.

I can only assume the main baddie is

Who is this

?  And concerning what that person tells Graham later:

Regarding dreams:

And finally, regarding Valenice:

Mmmmkay, I think that's all I got.  I'll edit if I think of more. :)  Thanks again for all of your hard work Phoenix Online Studios, and I cannot wait until Ep. 3 is released!

There will be no Spriggans in this game.

Re: Valanice. Yes, it is out of character for her--we're actually quite aware of that. You aren't the only one wondering what's going on with her...and among those who are wondering, Graham's quite high on the list!

Glad you're enjoying the game! And as for your burning questions, well, as we say around here:  :suffer:

Aha, good!  It comforts me that the Studios isn't altering her character! :)

Another thought:  I'd like an update on that horrible wench that walked all over Beauty in VI.  Please let there be some update in the Four Winds that she went bankrupt and now works in Beast's castle as a cleaning servant, or some other equally as just. MMMMMkay, great!  ;D

I hope Hakim the Pawne Shoppe Owner will be introduce again at SOME time, right?!

I realize these are questions to the winds and no responses will be given.  But it'd at least like to plant these questions in everyone else's head too.  Misery loves company.  ;)

There's a few theories I have, like who the caped guy is. I don't want to think about it too much- I find that spoils the surprise for me :) I am dying to know who the caped guy is and if I'm right :)

Only Graham's playable. Originally you would play as Graham, Rosella, and Alexander, but the latter two got cut :(

Warning: following is from past spoilers and not actually released in the game.

Oh, sorry- there was a bit of exposition that I had some problems keeping up with. I think maybe it was a bit too much information at once for me and I could've used finding it out myself manually. IT was probably all in there ^^;

Oh, sorry, the spoiler bit isn't actually in the episodes, just what I've picked up from released bits of info on the forums and chats over the years. I should have mentioned that; I'll go edit it.

This also isn't the thread I was thinking it was... :-\

Oh! OK, I'm glad that there are plans of her future awesomeness then! I can see her having those abilities :) It'd be really cool to have a game with the whole family involved for once rather than just 1 or 2 while the rest are sick, captured or unconscious. I know it's bad for the twins now, btu if it becomes a whole family event, that'd be epic :D
