going back to play a game over again and listening to a character that betrays you lie straight to your face
During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.
The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.
CHRIST HOW DID I MISS THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
Every time I see someone say Konami killed Suikoden I just want to respond with “No the pissy fanbase who think everything needs to be exactly like Suikoden 2 killed Suikoden. because seriously almost every time someone mentions a game other than one and 2 in the chat someone starts talking about how fucking terrible all those games are and it’s like no, they weren’t terrible, you are.
this. although as the years have gone on, people appreciate the other games more. pity they didn’t do that back then when it might have mattered. :( the thomas and lazlo defense squads have appeared a few years too late.
no they don’t. literally every single time I’ve brought up a Suikoden game that wasn’t 2 outside of tumblr someone has said something shitty to me about the fact that I love Turkeys or 4 or Tactics or 5 or 3…Every single time without fail. Hell some of the guys in charge of the SRM regularly shit on games in the series. it’s like…your whole thing is bringing back this series, why would anyone take you seriously when you regularly shit on things that aren’t your precious 2.
I recall reading some post in a forum somewhere where some dude got all bitchy at this other dude cos he wanted help on working on a translation for Suikoden: tsumugareshi hyakunen no toki, I think it was. Man was he cunty too. Talking about how no one cared cos it was Suikoden II and how no true fans of Suikoden even like the newer games.
I kinda wanted to set fire to him for it, but that might just be me. I don’t care about how “crap” they say the other games are, if it has Suikoden in the title then I want to play it so I can judge for myself. I really enjoyed Suikoden V and I’m looking into getting a copy of IV so I can play that one too.
I guess the fandom for any game can be crap, but I’d buy Suikoden VI tomorrow if they make an announcement for it. I came pretty late to the game as far as Suikoden is concerned and didn’t play the series until a couple of years ago. Yes, I know. Fail that I lived so long and had never played it. >.<
Anyways, I thinks it’s a pity to see people get so moody at others and telling them it’s a shitty game just cos it’s not I or II. It makes the fanbase look like a bunch of dicks and scares away people. No one wants to be part of a community when they get accused of not being “true fans” (whatever the fuck that is). >.>
