The guy that works at the stand is named Shorty.  So yeah, you can't see him and never will, but he's there.  Did you click on the window?

Yeah, hahahaha... Well, I figured it out on my own after a while. I just went to the stand and started touching everything there and I finally got to talk to him after touching towards the bottom of the stand. I didn't even think about the "Shorty" thing until you just mentioned it. Hahaha... Fun game, but man is it short.

Man, I'm stuck as hell. Which is odd since I consider myself good at adventure games and have found this game to be easy... until now.

I'm in Episode three, the snow fairy episode. I have Barnabus the seal, the blond haired girl, and the snow fairy all inside the skating rink. The Air conditioner is completely off. Barnabus is complaining he's hungry and I know I need to feed him something to make him get warm and turn the AC on. I found the hot sauce and switched it at the hot dog shop for ketchup. This is where I'm stick. I kinda thought I'd need a hot dog to feed the dude, and after a while of trying I looked up the walkthrough on gamefaqs. Indeed, just as I thought, it says at this point I need to go to the hot dog stand and buy a hotdog. But... there's no one at the stand, there never has been since the beginning of the game. Clicking on the stands' sign, the hot sauce/mustard or the healthy dude standing a bit away from the stand does nothing. Anyone know what to do? Until then, back to trying to figure it out for myself.

We need a Square-Enix Anthology!

Secret of Mana
Seiken Densetsu 3
Bahamut Lagoon
Illusion of Gaia
Art Gallery
Sound Test
Stuffed Moogle or Turbo Dog beanie

If they did this and kept the original graphics, storylines, music, etc., I'd easily pay 100 bucks or more for such an anthology. Especially if Brain Lord was thrown in.

Back during the 16 bit days I had this problem big time. Of course, more RPG's were coming out back then too. I'd start a game, get another one, drop the first one and start the new one, etc. But I stopped that years ago because I would forget what was going on in the storyline, and also forget the button layout of each game. I literally would have to retrain myself as to what button did what for each game. So since then, I haven't started one game until finishing another. When I buy a new game I'll play the beginning hour or so just to see how it is, but that's it if I'm already playing another game.

I was thinking about getting this as I LOVED the first Yoshi's Island. I'm not worried about the dead zone issue as it didn't bother me in Mario And Luigi: Partners In Time. I was more worried about the gameplay and techniques because if I'm right, nintendo did not make this game, right?

Im very fond of rpgs, and to date, they did very good. But thats not to say, that there isnt any bad ones out there, I know of a few I didnt like. For example sega released a pc based game onto its sega genesis console called "Sword of Vermillion" It was pretty dark and the graphics werent anything special, I can tell you that. The soundtrack however was quite good. I found it tedious, then again Im not used to pc based games, and this also includes "eye of the beholder" released for the snes, and "might and magic" for the psx, again, nothing special. The "Ultima" series wernt any good either. I guess Im not a huge fan of pc based rpgs, as Im sure many of the ones I mentioned came from pc, and then made it to the consoles. Other than that, many of the other rpgs, like secret of evermore (snes), Final Fantasy IX (psx), Shining Force II (genesis), are very good, and I loved playing them. I still say that the SNES was the genious of rpgs. ^_^ great system, and even greater rpgs.

I liked Sowrd Of Vermillion. It was the first RPG I played where you went to a battle screen, but you could move your character around to fight instead of having the battles turn-based.

Castlevania should always remain 2D anyway, IMO.

Worst RPG Beyond the Beyond, and it was my first one on the playstation.

There's are several things that gripes me about it.

High random encounter.
Random stat gains many even VP worth one point at level up.

Lack of a magic defense stat. the only item in the beginning you can get is a Resist jewel which permanently raises magic defense. but you can only find one. later on you can buy them at the secret shop.

The later enemies were brutal with their magic attacks.

Beyond the Beyond's encounter rate, while slightly higher than your typical solid RPG, is still *quite* tame in comparison to the SNES RPG Arcana.

I loved Arcana. Battling cards was cool.

I played a few hours of this tonight, and I'll just paste what I wrote on another board about it:

Wow,... just wow! I picked up this game tonight just because A. The DS game I wanted wasn't in stock, and B. I've seen nothing but praise for it and the footage I saw of it blew me away. Nothing compares to actually playing it though. The game is steeped in Japanese folklore, and you play the role of a wolf, no human crusader here, thank you! The closest in game design I can think of to this game is the Zelda series as Storm Shadow said above, as it is an adventure, but there's so much more to it than that. Your wolf has a standard head-butt to smash things open, and he also has a jump/double jump to get to high places. Pretty standard fare there, but where this game deviates from all others is in the magical paintbrush. You have this little bug-like sprite that befriends you early in the game. He teaches you your first basic move, which is to draw things that aren't there. Like say, you come across the bridge that is broken... just use the paintbrush and draw the bridge back in. Hell, even draw shapes up into the stars and in the water! I also got an upgrade for the paintbrush, which I use in battle. The wolf has a magical disc type thing on his back that you can attack enemeis with, but it won't kill them. Hit them enough times with your disc thing, and they'll turn black and white. When this happens, use your new paintbrush power to draw a line through their bodies, which literally tears them in half delivering the fatal blow. It sounds simple, and it is, but it's so fun. In all, by the end of the game apparently there are 13 different upgrades to your paintbrush. I can't wait to see how the gameplay differs with each new upgrade. And the graphics... wow. I have a 360 and these rival any game I have for that. VERY bright and vivid colors, it looks as though a box of crayola crayons melted on my TV screen. Though Okami plays nothing like ICO and Shadow Of The Colossus, those that loved those two games because they offered something different will love Okami for the same reason. There's really nothing like it.
