(1) What video game company gave Sony investment money to develop the PlayStation?

(2) What happens to the village of Kilika immediately before Yuna and company arrive there?

(3) Who is Seymour Guado (the man with the impossibly styled blue hair)?

(4) According to Auron, what is Sin?

(5) What type of black magic is strong against Yellow (lightning) Elementals?

(6) How would you describe the relationship between Tidus and Yuna?


The answer to the first question can be found in Chapter 14 ("Mario's Advance: Nintendo's Discs") of Jeff Ryan's book Super Mario: How Nintendo Conquered America, which was the assigned reading for last week. The title alone should give you a pretty good idea of what the answer to the question is, but a number of people still got it wrong, even though I like to think I gave a fairly lucid and detailed presentation on this era of video game history. I suppose you can lead a horse to water, but...

The students said they wanted more quiz questions about gameplay, so I gave them a question about gameplay. I figured that they had probably fought enough Yellow Elementals on their way to and from the Kilika Temple to have picked up on their vulnerability, especially since this is the point in the game when just about every weapon has the Sensor ability tacked onto it. Alas, about half of the kids got the answer to the question wrong. I had decided not to include gameplay questions so as not to penalize the students reading or watching a playthrough, but they were very insistent that I include these questions, so... Idk, I'm including another gameplay question on this week's quiz, and we'll see what happens.
