Momma Bosco: Young Spirit or Elderly Ghoul?

posted by lombre on - last edited - Viewed by 448 users

I've noticed that Momma Bosco's ghost went from being elderly in What's New, Beelzebub to looking surprisingly youthful in The Penal Zone. Is there some line of dialog I missed that explains this, or has Momma been clicking those annoying pop-up ads that claim to make you look 20 years younger?

    But for what I'm really hoping is an explanation of why Sam can see Max's visions. I mean, I can understand that is because the thing of been now the two are, in a way, Player Characters, so, what's Sam or Max knows, the player know, and, in a some sort of explanation, is better for the two know in game what the players know, buuuttt I would like an explanation anyway. I would not complain if we don't get an explanation of that, but it's like why Future Max is using that visor, I just want to know, because I'm a fangirl. End of Line.

    I figured it's just because they're Sam and Max. They more or less share the same existence, so why not psychic powers?

  • So Mama Bosco is looking hot? I guess i missed that part completely.

    Just look at her eyes! ;)

  • It's obvious that she's just dying her hair and got some work done in the facial area. Ectoplasmic cosmetics is a surprisingly thriving industry.

  • I'd accept it if there wasn't, but I'd really like to see an explanation for why Sam can see Max's visions. There's some story potential there, I think.

    Don't forget Sam's shrug :p

    I don't think that any explanation is needed. While in traditional European folklore (I assume same applies to American folklore too, but I'm not 100% certain) ghosts appear like they were when they died (often showing the wounds etc. which killed them) in modern popular culture ghosts can sometimes change their appearance at will. Most of those works don't bother to explain it either, but just assume that ghosts can control their ethereal form.

    I prefer looking into Kaa's eyes instead.

  • @Lena_P said: What? Why would becoming 30 make you un-hot?

    I think the implication is that un-hotness is a continuing thing from his 20s. But I could be really mistaken =)

  • I reckon she just looks better and more like a scientist in her Chariots of the Dogs get-up than how she looked in the final episode of season two. Plus you need to remember she'd only just died in the latter and personal appearance can't have been a high priority on her agenda. To top all that, she appears in each episode how we'd pretty much expect/want to see her.

    Telltale know what they're doing. ;)

    P.S. The hair's gone from her legs as well. The only part of her still ugly as f***.
