Wild Arms 3 Part 30: You Can Always Go Home Again (and Again)

Giddyap, partner, because today is November 21. The catch phrase of the day is, ‘Beating after death.’ The Ark of Destiny hands out free calendars every year, but it only lists their religious holidays. It makes me want to memorize all of them, so I don’t use them myself.

Previously on Wild Arms 3: We learned of The Ark of Destiny’s history of dendrology, and that apparently happened right around where Virginia used to live.

So let’s check the ol’ homestead for clues.

Fun fact: there is in fact a hill in Boot Hill. Virginia’s family lives up on said hill. They are loaded.

As you may expect, every NPC in town has more personalized dialogue for Virginia.

The rest of the party just gets generic clues that will help them save the world.

Freaking love that Libera the ARMs-smith has to tell Virginia immediately that he couldn’t save the town from gobs back during her intro because he was visiting his girlfriend in Canada that day.

Huh! What a weird coincidence!

Can you only get to Boot Hill if you are on the verge of death? Apparently Roykman, our ever-faithful traveling merchant, was rescued in Boot Hill from a pack of dogs by some mysterious character that is Virginia’s Dad (oops spoilers).

I feel like I heard this somewhere before.

Let’s do some reading…

Wild Arms 3 Part 01: Sweet Virginia

This was first posted on Gogglebob.com on April 18, Filgaia Day. Some extreme people holler, ‘Be kind to Filgaia!’ But I prefer a more restrained approach. I’d rather be seen with a laid-back attitude than having people going out of their way to be kind.

Prologue: Let It Roll

According to Wikipedia, Writer’s Digest described this sentence as "the literary posterchild for bad story starters". Hell yeah let’s do this thing.

… Look, we’re two pictures into this Let’s Play, and I just stopped myself from making a second reference to seminal 90’s band Train. This… this is gonna be a long LP.

Now it’s time to meet…. OH GOD DAMMIT.

Introducing a main character as an avid reader? You have my attention, Wild Arms 3. I am not 100% sure Cloud Strife even knows the alphabet.

Raytracing my ass, the Playstation 2 handles reflections perfectly.

The night: it is dark and stormy.

And our obvious heroine is all tuckered out.
