Name of the Game

Posted: 30th March 2007 by Chuck Flysh in Games, Official

By now I have been asked numerous times: “Why call it ‘Black Rabite’… and what’s a rabite anyway?”

First off, if you don’t know what a rabite is… tsk, tsk. Thanks to the power of the almighty and omniscient internet, however, you can easily look that one up. Now, you may want to pay particular attention to this passage:

The black rabite’s elusiveness is matched only by its immense power, and a player would have to go far out of their way to find one. First appearing in Seiken Densetsu 3, the black rabite is an optional boss character that wields powerful magic and has a staggering amount of health. The origin of this beast is unknown, but it has somehow come into possession of powerful mana that allows it to cast nearly every spell in the game, as well as summon equal-level monsters to its aid.

Right. This brings us back to the original question… why get a ridiculous domain like that. If a reference to the almighty and most powerful rodent in the history of video gaming ain’t enough of a reason for you, just note that we were playing a lot of Seiken Densetsu 3 at the time we thought about a name for our site.

If you don’t know what Seiken Densetsu, or “Secret of Mana”, is… tsk, tsk.
