I don’t know how I feel about the amount of research and effort I’ve put in for looking up the origins for the characters and concepts in the video game Asura’s Wrath rivaling that of my Sonic the Hedgehog research. For those who don’t know I’ve been doing a Did You Know Asura’s Wrath? section in the style of Did You Know Gaming? for the “commercial breaks” that happen in the game and wanted to give a bit of trivia on specific main characters in the game like name origins, god relations, mantra affinity and the sort. I have put in more time learning about the lore and gods of the Hindu, Buddhist, Indian, Vedic which is the precursor to Hinduism, and Indo-European worlds then I probably would in a proper class and it’s all because I wanted to talk over a video game. Amazing how wanting to give a bit of trivia give a bit of history on the different characters lead to such a big project.
