GameSpite Quarterly 3‘s “journey through the gamer’s alphabet,” as GoNintendo keeps calling it, returns back to the earlier portions of the alphabet now that we’ve filled out the index’s fourth column with links. Luckily, there is no fifth column to this issue — at least, none that I know of. (Cue ominous music.)
Anyway, today’s entry features the Perfect Machine of Snipe, and that is rad.
- Duke Togo (Golgo 13): Face it, you’ve got Golgomania bad!!
- Erdrick (Dragon Quest III): You’ll notice that we’re not calling him Roto. That is because Roto is the name of a device that helps dig into your yard to resolve septic issues, not the name of a legendary hero.
- Firebrand (Gargoyle’s Quest): Firebrand is a hero. But sometimes, Firebrand is also a villain. It’s complicated.

That awesome Firebrand article reminds me of how much I wish Gargoyle’s Quest II and Demon’s Crest were on Virtual Console. I’m kinda surprised they’re not, considering that Ghosts’N’Goblins and both (super and non-super) Ghouls’N’Ghosts are.
I always read “Duke Togo” as “Duke Torgo”. He shoots people while the master is away.
I’ve always harbored an irrational kind of affection for Duke Togo and Golgo 13 ever since someone gave me a few copies of the translated manga when I was a kid. I’ve never been much of a James Bond fan (well, at least a fan of the Roger Moore Bond I grew up with), but Togo always seemed like the lanky, bad-assed chain-smoking/sniping bastard that Bond should have been.
I guess Daniel Craig’s Bond is the closest thing to Togo in a AAA-action flick that we’ve seen yet.
