Wild Arms 3 Part 05: Janus Never Blinks

This is being posted to Gogglebob.com on May 23, Correspondence Day. I was writing letters to a pen pal, but when I told him about all the holidays, he suddenly stopped writing back… Hmph, I don’t care about boys who don’t care about holidays, anyway. Hey, I know. You must like holidays since you’re always talking to me. Do you want to be my pen pal?

Chapter 5: Janus Never Blinks

Previously on Wild Arms 3: We have completed all the prologues! So we’ve got…

· A new drifter that fights for justice
· An experienced drifter that fights for justice
· A new drifter that will do anything for a buck
· An experienced drifter that will do anything for a buck

Such variety!

No matter who you chose last, at the culmination of their tale, we cut immediately to a train station.

It must be kind of weird or absolutely normal if you somehow choose Virginia last.

This suitcase is where Virginia keeps the 999 items you have on your person at all times. It is never seen again.

Virginia was the narrator this whole time? Is… is she omnipotent?

“There goes our Virginia, off to… uh… somewhere. What did her ticket say? Adventure? … That isn’t a place.”

Around and around we go…The world that encircles me begins to revolve…The gears grind, and the spinning wheels of fate begin to turn…And finally, the train departs. A journey without a purpose. The train just steams away to the world beyond today. The accident that ensued on the train I happened to be on…And the three strangers I would later encounter…These were all coincidences. But if coincidence is a part of fate, I want to roam this vast Filgaia to find the reason behind that encounter.

So, basically, the point of your journey is you want to find the point for your journey. Got it.

Wild Arms 3 Part 03: Gunman Clive

This was originally posted on Gogglebob.com on May 9, Silver Day. If you have a silver dream tonight, you’ll be taken away to a purple mirror world. I wonder what a purple mirror world looks like? I’d like to see such a world, but my dreams are always in full color.

Previously on Wild Arms 3: Jet learned the true meaning of friendship with his new best friend, Pike. Jet will now have fabulous adventures all over the world, and Pike will shovel horse manure for the rest of time. This is canon.

Moving on to the guardsman.

No, that’s… that can’t be right.


026100.png

Better.

Couldn’t just be a simple “week” with this guy…

When I first played Wild Arms 3, I thought 30 was, like, the oldest a human being could be. Now I look wistfully at this young’un and his childish adventures…

Clive Winslet, age thirty. He is about to embark on a mission considered the most deadly of all Drifter trades–eradicating a monster. These drifters are accustomed to risking their lives to face danger. They do it for the reward and to satisfy their spirit. One cannot deny that in the eyes of many, these Drifters are just ruffians driven by greed. Could this man be nothing more than a ruffian as well…? Or perhaps…


026500.png

Narrator? This guy wears glasses. Everyone knows he can’t be a ruffian.


026600.png

Steal his look! Clive has green hair, glasses, a generally red trench coat (with black shoulder bits), surprisingly cool gloves, some kind of leather chest piece, a holster that is evidently incapable of holding his ARM, and vaguely stylized boots. I’m just noting this because it was true in 2002, and it’s true now: if I could pull off this style, I would.

Oh, anyway, Clive was hired to kill something around here…
