Our very own GoldStud has been away as a missionary in Brazil for a while now. I just got a letter from him and thought I'd share some of it with you guys!

So Brazil is Playstation territory. I did not know this. All anyone plays here is God of War (Bleh), FIFA (Double bleh), and terrible Flash MMO's (Murder!). I have made it my secondary mission to lift deprived children out of video game darkness. It's is not easy because their brains have been fried and their wills broken by generations of time-waster, click-fury...Flash games.
I have (vicariously of course) downloaded many copies of ZSNES, with Chrono Trigger and select other games like Mega Man X2 and Kirby Super Star and Final Fantasy III (VI). I have one seed that took root. But all the others died or were choked out by the weeds of Facebook and Mostaddictinggames.com. *Is sad*
So what game would you use to cleanse Playstation Land? Chrono has a slower start, but even Zelda and Mega Man X can't hold the attention of these victims. Maybe you can share some insight on this!
Hey, tell everyone on ZU I say HI.
- Elder GoldStud
Some of you might remember GoldStud. He was of a simpler time when the Sprite Comic Ghetto was flourishing. He, Lurrrre!, and I were basically the Three Amigos of ZU. He is an excellent spriter and all around good guy. Right before he left he was helping out a bit with Timeless Haven, ZU's fan game. He would be an invaluable member of the design time, but he has other things on his mind, like being a missionary in Brazil. I don't know when he's coming back, but I'm guessing it's some time next year.
Zecora, tell GoldStud that I can't wait for him to come back to ZU even if I am nobody that he could remember!
