wow...i thought i was having it pretty rough right now until i read this post.  it actually kinda made my day a little.  well here goes with my little story.  i worked my ass off in rent to own for 2 years, even dropped out of college to devote more time into my job.  i was working 12-16 hours a day 6 days a week on average for 2 years.  constant fights with the fiance over the job and everything.  made assistant manager over sales and when the store manager resigned i actually ran the store for over a month.  then they brought in the new store manager who wanted to fire me the second he walked in, even admitted it.  i had to have surgery so i ok'd it with the store manager and district manager and took two weeks off to have the surgery and heal from it.  got fired during the middle of the time off and i can file a lawsuit because i was protected under the fmla act but i'm not even gonna bother with it.  currently collecting unemployment 300 bucks a week to sit on my ass.  thought about joining the military and since i dont have a ged and only 12 credit hours i can't, but then found out today i'm eligible for financial aid again so i start classes again October 12th.  However, since i'm only making 300 a week having to pay for repairs on my car and then pay my truck note (which the truck needs a new transmission) i can't afford to live with the fiance so i had to move back in with my parents while she moved back in with her parents.  overall crappy but has a good outlook to it because i can join the military after this semester and while i'm in the military finish college (while the military pays for the rest of it) plus you can't get fired in the military thats a plus.  after basic and ait school i can live with the fiance again.  hopeful future just gotta wait through the bad stuff.  thats my pathetic story.  not as bad as some if not all of your bad stories.  thanks for this topic i really enjoyed it.

Yeah, but Rafa made a really good item finder and Priest with almost no work, while Malak was a really good fighter unit.  The problem with saying any human unit in FFT sucks is that every single one of them has access to all the same classes as everyone else.  So no human can be ostensibly "worse" than any generic unit, and all the generics are good.  Sure, guys like T.G. Cid and Ramza are -better- because their special skills are really good, but just because Rafa, Malak, and Cloud's specials were bad doesn't mean they were actively worse than anyone else.

Basically, on a scale of 1-10, no humans can ever go below an 8 because the generic classes are so good.

I never cared to level them up in any other class because by the time you get them you have other characters already leveling up in other classes and since you can only have 5 characters on the battle field at once anyway thus coming to the conclusion that they were useless.

If you want useless characters try Rapha and Marach from Final Fantasy Tactics.  Their special attacks almost NEVER hits any of the units your targeting

i thought vivi was a boy since zidane referred to him as little guy once in the game...if my memory serves me correctly

never heard of him before, lol shows how much i pay attention to the news.  from reading the posts though i'd have to say that i'd be in the grey area also.  if it was possible i'd rather see him go to trial then put to death but having your house blown up is more like a quick trial i guess.

from what i've read about star ocean 4 is the reason i'm waiting on the game to have a price drop.  not paying 60 bucks for it quite yet
12  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: DDO Goes F2P on: August 30, 2009, 05:43:36 PM
always wanted to try this game just never wanted to pay for it.  this is great!!!
13  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: IMAGINE yay or nay? on: August 30, 2009, 05:23:16 PM
i have a good question about the game, on the system requirements screen it says you need at least 3 ghz processor minimum which is why i never tried it.  is this true?  it seems high for a mmorpg... anyone played it with lower specs?  if so whats ur specs?

when i first started reading i wasn't to excited, by the time i got to the end of the list of new info i couldn't be more thrilled with everything that they're changing.  granted theres a few negatives here and there and some people might want to keep the old azeroth, but that just makes me thing why pay for a evolving and changing game world when nothing evolves and changes?  HELL YEA BLIZZARD keep up the good stuff!!!
