I recently picked up the RPG Maker for the PlayStation, and, as you might have guessed, I have a great deal of spare time on my hands. How would you feel about having a "Conversatron" RPG?

Responses:
 Bacon

Dude, I'm all for it.

Um... how does it save them out, anyways?

 Jason_Ennui

Memory card, which, normally, would make for exchanging them fairly difficult. Luckily there's a thing called "DexDrive" which can store PlayStation memory on a computer. Of course, to send it to anyone, they'd have to have a DexDrive.

Bacon, what do you want your special attack to be?

 Bacon

I don't know.
Some sort of heart attack inducing thing?

 Jason_Ennui

It shall be done. Anyone else? C'mon, give me some inspiration.

 Nagoy

What kind of power could Lego Man have? "Invoke Pieces to stick perminantly together".... did that ever happen to anyone else? You needed one more god damn piece to make the castle but the piece you needed was jammed down on something else.

Lego Man  

That was often followed by the "Teeth on Lego" manuver. Ick.

 AmazingGoat

Space Moose's attack should involve bludgeoning with a humorously large phallus.

 Jason_Ennui

Hmm. I'm sure Hsu and Chan would be god-like in this game.

 atropos

What would be the mission, though? The final goal? The archenemy?

 Nagoy

Spacemoose can have "Aggressive Homoerotic Assault"... but it can only be committed once a day without the aid of "mystical moose lube".........

I think TV's Frank should be able to shoot someone into space. Go ahead, Frank. Push the button.

 AmazingGoat

The True Meaning of Life can be featured as Kramer-like wacky neighbor.

 Ceiling_Fan

Bacon should have a "Sizzle" attack which splatters hot grease on all enemies.

 kermix

atropos: perhaps it is *we* who are the enemy.

...at least, that's how it feels sometimes.

Captain Zapp Brannigan  

You must face wave after wave of askers, with only one thing on their devious minds...getting their questions answered!

 Jason_Ennui

Perhaps TMOL could be the arch-enemy of the hero. Hey, who should be the hero of the game?

 SuperYoda

TMOL. It can be one of those really deep psychological things that way.

 Ceiling_Fan

Shodan can be the "Cute but incredibly unstable pseudo love interest" character.

 Nagoy

the Fecal Avenger...... Conversatron, the Fecal Avenger

 Illusionist

Someone should have an "evil gaze" attack that travels very slowly across the screen like any other missile weapon. Like in the adventure game maker for the Apple II. I tried for a minute to look up what the name of that was, but I bet someone else here knows.

 atropos

And occasionally ghosts of the Forum could pop out and give cryptic hints and stuff. Or just ask for pictures of assless chaps.

 AmazingGoat

The goal of the game can be the accumulation of Honor (as opposed to experience, like most RPGs.) The more Honor you have, the more women who are willing to send the Coversatron naked pictures. The ultimate goal is to get women to send you naked pictures.

 kermix

RPGs usually have a party of heroes that you can switch in and out, which means that damn near all of the Askees can potentially be heroes.

That is, if they'll join the group.

 Nagoy

Is it just me or does SuperYoda appear to have a rocket in his pocket?

 jedite333

Enemies are evil askees! Dark Sifl! Teh Ha><0r d00d! Lean bacon!

 Ceiling_Fan

Mom and Dad would have the "Scold" power. They can make monsters whimper and run off to their rooms without dinner.

 Jason_Ennui

Fecal Aven- no, nevermind. Yes, I'm sure I can think of something suitably inane for a plot. But, Con vs. Askers, or Askers vs. the Con?

 Nagoy

Getting into Dawn Marie's pants can be the ultimate goal of the Gurus

 jedite333

SHODAN can be the evil last boss, I'm sure there's no problem with that.

 Agent13

Asker-on's Call?

Hsu and Chan Tanaka, Game Designers  

Ah! We have been attacked! It appears to be a group of level 3 Spammers and a level 13 pornography-linker!

 Nagoy

It would have to be Askers vs. the Con because the Con would be the most powerful... the ability to completely ignore... its only weakness being open threads.........

 AmazingGoat

I think we should focus more closely on this naked picture idea.

 atropos

But what about the Askees that are themselves evil, like the Big Fucking State of Alaska?

 jedite333

Combine attacks! WOPR with Bacon!
Whopper...Bacon...see...heh...heh...

 Jason_Ennui

Ack, sorry, WOPR, my bad. Let me get my brick.

 Hamusutaa

We could always take a cue from Square and make the initial story about something small like trying to get women to send pictures to you, but then in the process you slowing reveal the pieces of a vast earth-threatening force that someone needs to stop!

Or we could just stick with the pictures of women thing.

 kermix

Good idea, WOPR.
Do it before Matthew Broderick can play th--

 AmazingGoat

If you accumulate enough naked pictures you can contaminate Alaska's water supply.
