Nisan Sanctuary reaches 50000 hits
Hyuga: This section is a
special edition of the Mailbag. Last July 24, we celebrated 50,000
hits. Everyone has their own little way of celebrating such an
occasion, and this is mine. Double the Mailbags! For today's
edition, we have 17 mailbags instead of my usual 8. Yep, 20.
Including a guest appearance by Id, and a letter from The Contact.
We also have more people asking about Xenogears 2, anime, and
Ramsus. Some interesting letters facing things like mod chips,
cooking show music, nuns and more.
50 K hits!! =D
Trio of Terror
of all good website. Second you explained Grahf and Fei but where
does Id come into play and what are his relations?
Hyuga: Id? He's the staffer
who does the cheats section. You ever talked to him? He's a pretty
cool guy. His relations with Fei and Grahf? I don't think he
has any. Wait, I'll ask him myself...
Id: We occasionally go
for drinks at the Black bear pub and bowl on league nights. =D
you have it. Case closed. Well, honestly, Id is part of Fei.
Since you already know Fei and Grahf and their bit with Lacan,
I'll cut to the chase. *SPOILER WARNING STARTS NOW* Fei (our
Fei, the one you play) has Multiple Personality Disorder. He
has three personalities. Fei, the one we know and *cough* love.
The next would be the Coward, the part of him that shunned out
his past that Karen did experiments on. After Fei couldn't take
enough, he formed Id, the evil personality. Id was the one who
took in all the anger and hate, and thus wanted to destroy the
world. Id lives inside of Fei, and when Fei reaches a weakened
mental state, Id comes out to play. SPOILERS OVER
Fei = Id, but who could this little shadow be?
Renmazuo the Omnipotent and more
great site! I've found stuff here I haven't found anywhere else.
Thanks, and now to my question. I have been looking for sometime
for a site or place that has the places listed where you get
your omni/new gears and thought that if you knew where you could
just e-mail me (I'm a power freak I try to get as much new stuff
as soon as possible). Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hyuga: You, sir, are the
unlucky man of the day. To be a power freak, level up. That's
all. Deathblows power you up, and can be gotten at almost any
time, but Gears? Nope. New Gears are unfortunately automatic.
No choices. If you had choices, I'd have Fenrir from the start!
Still want a list? OK: SPOILER WARNING
This Gear is gotten late in the game. On Disc 2, after your side
trip to Merkava, you view a cutscene, then Fei runs off. After
this next event, Id's Gear changes colors and becomes Xenogears.
Bart: Andvari. Only one to be available on
Disc 1. You get it in Fatima Jp., after Shevat.
Citan: Fenrir! Being
a Citan fan, Fenrir is my absolute fav Gear. Heimdal is replaced
on Disc 2 by the samaurai Gear. Go Fenny!
Billy: Renmazuo. Disc 2, Anima Relic dungeon
Rico: Stier. Disc
2, Anima Relic dungeon 2.
Elly: Regurus. You
only see this Gear in a cut scene. Never get to use it.
`em Omnigears `ere. Can you name them all?
Case of the Missing Nuns
on the part of the game called 'Operation Aveh', and I've been
on this part for about 3 months now because some people just
don't help me! All the walkthroughs say that you're supposed
to go to the Inn and a nun takes you upstairs. But the nuns in
the Inn don't do anything like that. They just talk rubbish and
the guy at the counter says that they are full and gives you
something that reduces your weight a bit. And, there is NO upstairs
to the Inn! So what the heck am I supposed to do? nobody else
in the town seems to be of any importance! Please help, I'm really
Hyuga: Nuns don't "take
you upstairs"! You have to put some elbow grease into it
and go up yourself. Geez. Some people! Still need help? Go up
the stairway and to the far right is the nun. From somewhere
outside there's also a window entrance to her room.
Nutz: Now, now, Hyuga, be
nice to the person.. LOL. I think he meant the nun who's suppose
to give you a discount to the inn? Er, but hey, what do I know?
But to get that discount, talk to the first nun you see when
you enter Bledavik, one near the entrance, to the right side
of the screen. She's the first person to see, so you won't miss
her. Screenshots follow tomorrow. =D
Cooking with Yui: Now on TV! (Pirated game music on the boob
I was watching some Chinese TV series on tape that my parents
borrow from friends. Half way watching the tapes, I notice that
they have a similar music that I heard from before!! I check
my Xenogears ost, then I notice that they are using music from
our beloved game. The tracks they are using is the Blackmoon
forest and the Jaw of ice for their evil theme! Did Square give
them the right to use it?? Did anybody notice a similar situation
happen before?? Please print this message, so everybody would
know this is happening!!
Hyuga: : I believe I've read
something about this before, but I don't recall hearing that
Square gave them permission. But hey, must mean that they enjoy
good ol' Xenogears music as much as most of us do. What's next?
Creid on TV (that'd just plain rock. Creid is awesome)? But,
any of you heard of Square giving permission to use the tracks
from Xenogears? Let me know.
happened to me before too. I suddenly heard one of the local
tv programs here use the music from Tomb Raider 2 in their show.
This ain't nice, but I guess these small programs are too trivial
to attract much legal attention. Maybe they didn't mean any harm,
and maybe it wasn't their idea that their budget was so low they
couldn't make their own music. Oh well, some people just don't
value copyrights. They'll get their just meals one of these days,
