...oh.

That thing.

Right.

I guess I missed the DomZ sea serpent boss, and I knew there was a head of one in a cave, but I didn't think dead things counted because you can't take a picture of the cow in the freezer. But yeah, I totally forgot I had that thing because I just assumed it showed you where animals were, not just ones you haven't photographed yet.

I'm stuck again. In the factory. I placed one fuse, but nothing's working and I don't see any area where I can place the other fuse that I have in my inventory. I went 'round to that area with the dead cow(?) and it doesn't appear that there's anything to do in there... BLORGH.

The dead cow area is really just a spot to get a pearl and some animals. The second fuse isn't used until you are on your way out of the factory. Have you met up with Double H yet?

Yep, sure have. Did that whole thing. Now I'm supposed to take an elevator down. A non-working elevator at the moment.

Have you already finished your report and beat the boss with Double H then? You don't need to use the broken service elevator a second time. You can just fall down in the room with the remaining functional service elevator. Maybe there is a barred gate nearby that you can ask Double H to headbutt down? I'm not quite sure where in the facility you are.

Just try to leave the facility once Double H is following you. And don't forget the pearl left behind by the first boss you encountered.

Yep I've done that. But the game tells me I have to do something with fuses - the pearl left by the boss is in the water below me.

Upon checking the gamefaqs boards, it seems this is a pretty common occurrence. And I didn't keep any recent extra save file...

This is one of those "you-weren't-supposed-to-do-that" glitches. Have you tried dying in various areas? If that doesn't work, you can start over and get back to that area in about an hour now that you've just done everything.

This is going to be an interesting game club episode I think. Very curious to hear what the opinions are of this game. I hope to at least get pretty far in by this weekend. :)

I'm so pissed that Sony announced this game is coming out in May on PSN...oh well. I guess it'll be better anyways, so that it won't bother me during my exam time.


I still loved this game...but that's kinda obvious of me owning multiple copies of it. The flow of the game was just so interesting back in 2003, and it's so sad it was so badly shunned by Ubisoft and the Prince of Persia (first) reboot. The virtually no-marketing for this game hurt it so bad.

I remember picking it up at the Christmas after it came out, which was what? A month if I remember right? I was in Best Buy, not a huge amount of time after it had opened in my city. We were in there looking for Christmas presents, and I stumbled upon the game. I first played it back on an OPM demo disk...well....months before hand, and in the magazine, and ESPECIALLY on the OPM Forums, there was a great hype around the game. Everyone said it was something special, but no one was buying it. I remember buying it for $30....and was remarkably sad at how fast the price dropped.

There's just something special about the game, and to be honest, I'm still to this day, not exactly sure what it is. The story's great, the combat is standard, but yet something constantly draws me back to the game. Back when I first started University in 2006, I didn't bring my PS2 with me, and I really wanted to keep playing this game. I ended up picking up a copy for PC that was bundled with Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Operation: Desert Storm 2: Back to Baghdad, and a Championship Manager for $25, all brand new. Still was totallly worth it. That game brought me a great amount of joy, and I was able to introduce it to a lot more people on my floor. I really, really hope we get a sequel eventually...

When I played it, I think whatever undefinable thing that made me play it through to completion in three sittings or so really felt like whatever I really loved about Wind Waker as well. It's kind of undefinable for me. When I hit on an enjoyable game world that I just love exploring, I think that's what really gets me addicted, perhaps.

You had me going D: for a second before I remembered why I knew from the beginning that you did, because the achievements spoil it.

So I don't feel guilty at all.

If you're playing this game for the second time (like I am having just finished the GameCube version), there are things you notice which you wouldn't give a second thought to had you not already beaten it.

For instance, in the factory I just noticed that when Pey'j is helping Jade push a crate, he says:

Pey'j: "Yer gonna make me go and wear out my jet boots, Jade!"

Jade: (jokingly) "The latest style in...transportation!"

Pey'j: "That's not all, Jade... that's not all."


When you get near the end of the game, it becomes apparent what a big role the Jetboots (and Pey'j) play in the larger story. Such an awesome game.

I've had some time now to ruminate upon my experience playing the game.

I know probably one of the things that's going to get brought up is the game is a little janky in parts. I definitely felt like it was a game of its time period. A lot of the issues and problems I ran into were not alien to me having recently played the older Ratchet and Clank games from around that time period on PS2. I had one instance where I broke away from the world and wound up stuck not being able to move, but that also happened once in Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando, so on the whole I didn't really feel it was that unpolished. I think Ratchet and Clank is a good comparison, since vehicle sections, the controls, and the camera, all just felt kind of like that to me.

That said, thinking about where Ratchet and Clank has gone since then, and was able to take what was good and really up the narrative and gameplay in this generation, that really gets me thinking about a Beyond Good and Evil sequel. There were lots of seeds planted here that I can see growing into something very awesome. After being glued to this game for its duration, I'm really left with a desire to see what that game would be if expanded upon today, because I don't think anybody has made that game yet, and I'm waiting to play it.

In fact, if I have one criticism it's that there's so little of the game. It's a strength that there are a million tiny details in this game world that I wanted to see expanded. Minor characters that have no purpose in the plot are interesting to me. I think a good example of one of those moments is (going to spoiler this even though it's barely one)
Spoiler


I guess what I mean is though the game is almost small in scope, every character felt like they had a backstory you just didn't know, and it felt refreshing to be in a game world that felt deeper than what you could see. It wasn't always presented with the utmost elegance, but this aspect is what makes me yearn for a sequel because I think it could be something really great.

Which is better, the Xbox 1 or Gamecube build? I don't have enough space for this on my 20 GB 360 HDD and would rather play the non-HD version. Also is the Xbox version 480p?

Game tape defeated with all achievement points. There were some minor annoyances here and there, but BG&E holds up as well as any game from last generation. I really enjoyed my time with the game and aside from the ridiculous inverted oversight, it's probably the best HD update yet. The environment, pacing, music, and art direction are just so different and unique. We need more games like this.
