Talk:Meteor Swarm

Anyone think it's a D&D reference? It's called Meteor SWARM, not Meteor Storm, so it could be. Meteor swarm is a powerful spell in D&D, btw.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

D&D also laid the groundwork for almost every video game RPG system ever, so…
Really, it's not that it couldn't be, it's that there's a lot of games with super-powerful meteor attacks (most start with the letter Final Fantasy). Since this is Square we're talking about, and they've borrowed heavily from D&D since the original FF and built off that, who's to say they're not just continuing an established pattern as opposed to directly referencing?

There are a bunch of other games which feature the phrase "Meteor Swarm", so it's pretty unlikely that it's a direct reference. 11:27, 25 December 2013 (EST)
