->As I think back on the original {{Wrestling/Goldust}} character, its pretty amazing how different it wound up being. The original premise was that he [[TheMovieBuff loved movies]] and would thus quote them throughout his promos...This also leads to a fascinating discussion wherein [[Wrestling/JerryLawler The King]] notes maybe Goldust is related to ''Goldfinger'' and {{Wrestling/Vince|McMahon}} saying he remembers Miss Galore but doesnt remember her first name. I bet this is the exact moment when Vince decided they needed to do the Wrestling/AttitudeEra. Just so he could mention the first name of '''MISS GALORE.'''

->It might be worth noting that a terminology change was made in the North American localization of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''. The English script refers to Edea as [[VainSorceress a sorceress]], but what she's called in the original Japanese is evidently a lot closer to "[[WickedWitch witch]]." Interesting choice. "Witch" is a bit of a loaded term; Square's American branch probably worried that players would associate it with pointy hats and broomsticks, inadvertently softening the impact... But "witch" still might have been the better choice: Possessed Edea's speech and manners are very evocative of the Creator/HansChristianAndersen breed of witch, especially in the scene in which [[TheVamp she lures Seifer to her side]]. (The old woman in the gingerbread house probably spoke to Hansel in the same tones.) And since ''Final Fantasy VIII''[='s=] world was designed to have a more predominantly Western feel than previous entries', it makes sense for the game's story to tap into Europe's traditional witch-phobia. Possessed Edea speaking of the populace's [[DrivenToVillainy deep-seated hatred and fear towards sorceresses]] isn't terribly evocative; the scene probably would have struck more of a chord with English-speaking audiences had she referred to people hating and fearing ''witches'' instead. Ah, well.

->''"Then the word came down from a lawyer at Columbia working for [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger Arnie]] that he didn't want to be associated with violence and the game should not feature him wielding guns. Even dynamite was included which messed up the plans for a toy company that was ready to go with a ''Last Action Hero'' doll holding dynamite -- I heard they ended up [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms recoloring it bright orange so it doesn't look quite like dynamite]]."''

->If ''[[VideoGame/UltimaVi The False Prophet]]'' was pushing the capabilities of the SuperNintendo's antiquated processor and 128kb of memory, ''The Black Gate'' shoved them off a cliff...Limitations of the hardware forced the game to become much more linear with event flags, and many items are inexplicably moved to the dungeons. Most damningly, though, is the severe damage that Nintendo's censorship policies resulted in for the game's story and play. Monsters, for some unexplained reason, [[NoBodyLeftBehind explode in a ball of fire]] rather than leaving bodies behind; presumably suicide-bombers are somehow more family friendly. Rather than ritual murders, you investigate [[NeverSayDie kidnappings]]. Various words including most notably the word 'kill' are gone from the dialogue, as well as nearly everything that could be construed as an adult situation, resulting in a horribly [[{{Bowdlerization}} bowdlerized]] game which demands no thought or moral choice and becomes just another consequence-free, mindless hack-and-slasher of the sort that Richard Garriott has been specifically trying to move away from since ''[[VideoGame/UltimaIV Quest of the Avatar]]''. There's really no reason to play this game at all. Please don't. [[TheyJustDidntCare It doesn't even have SNES mouse support.]]
