    I think it refers to the fact that you don't need to be Chinese to understand and enjoy the story....I hope so [​IMG]

    For reason's beyond racial unification?

    I'd speak of the historical irony of race being a factor in a game called "monkey" king, but I'm afraid it would spin the internet off its axis. Even as a black man (whom race is ever prevalent for), I'm afraid to touch this one.

    Edit: Suffice to say, I wonder if there are any porches in the game...

    to be perfectly honest, I'm always glad to see a game where the main character isn't an unshaven dude with 'attitude' and the game isn't set in beige/brown ruins.

    Never trust any culture who develops hair gel before they develop the internal combustion engine ...

    The Sun Wukong myths are centuries old ... the 7th century is the time of the earliest recorded reference ...

    Wu Ch'eng En is the first person to compile the many stories of The Monkey King ... this was in the 15th century ...

    I recommend anyone interested get their hands on Arthur Waley's translations of Wu's books ...

    Some wonderful fantasy and humour ...
