Entire Twilight Princess Script Available Online 54

1up notes, briefly, an enormous present for any dedicated Zelda fan that hasn't been able to work through Twilight Princess yet. The extremely cogent 'Mgoblue201' has uploaded a massive text file to GameFAQs, with the entire script of the game available to read. The author means business: he has jotted down every line of dialogue in the game, including the ones where you as a player try to do something nonsensical, or when you do something out of the ordinary. Mgoblue also offers a good deal of interstitial text to connect the various scenes. Here is some of his work from the very first scene of the game: "FADO: Hey hey, where are you goin' without Epona? Hurry on up an' bring her with you, bud. [Link rushes through the shadowy coat of the forest, which parts ways to let in the path to the springs, where he finds Ilia bathing Epona in the eerie glow of the twilight]" At the end of the document he looks at some of the apparent inconsistencies between the Zelda games, and attempts to make sense of the fractured 'Hero of Time' timeline. If you want to find out how the game ends, or don't understand something you breezed past, Mgoblue has you covered.

    Or ... you could just go to the Zelda:TP page [gamefaqs.com] and click on the "Game Script" link under "In-Depth FAQs".

    (Do not interpret this post to mean I regularly visit gamefaqs.com)

    The proper thing to do, from Gamefaqs' point of view, is to link to the game page itself [gamefaqs.com] and inform people they want the "Game Script" under in-depth faqs.

    The main character Cloud is insane due to radiation exposure, being a SOLDIER and other crap, his girlfriend Aeris is an alien from a tribe that exists to heal the planet due to their Gaia hypothesis magical materia and that's why she has the white materia with Holy. So Aeris gets stabbed by Sephiroth the psycho with the Jehovah, err, Jenovah cells (and any allusion to Revelation is strictly coincidental), and uses the black materia with Meteo err, Meteor now that we can have 6 characters for spell names. You can also thank the mad scientist guy and the decapitated body of the evil alien thing with the cells of evil, and the evil megacorp sucking the planet's energy dry, among others.

    In the end, they all gain ridiculous powers and kill off Sephy to a bunch of operatic music using the white materia to stop the black materia and rebalancing the planet's chakra with yin and yang to destroy the evil infecting it and leeching it dry.

    In short, it's an environmental morality play saying that humanity is an infection that Gaia is trying to destroy, but that we'll be okay if we all learn to live in harmony with nature by adopting animist religious principles like those native to Japan, instead of trying to dominate the planet and suck out all its coal/oil/gas/nuclear materials, err, I mean materia.

    Simple, no? But really, many of the Final Fantasy games have been about the environment and how we have to keep the forces of nature in balance, along with random magical science like incorporating quantum mechanics into the Spirits Within movie, materia as nuclear energy, loads of Gaia hypothesis stuff and various other random references to all sorts of different things.

    I've always loved the silly (and sometimes crazy) copyright notices that come with FAQs.  How many people even read this crap?  :]

    Probably a very long time. This document's been online since Jan. 25 -- I read a bit of it weeks ago -- and Slashdot's attention shouldn't do much.
