As far as characters go, FFVIII's biggest problem is that outside of Rinoa and Squall, nobody fucking mattered at best and didn't even receive development past disk 1 at worst.  As a result of this you  barely see Squall and RInoa interacting with them.

And as a result of THAT, it's hard to imagine them interacting with ANYONE, let alone fall in love.

Tidus and Yuna are just more complete individuals.

(And Zidane, of course, would fall in love with a pulse and bobees).

---edit---

Actually, you know, in a sense FF:CC was sort of thematically in line with 9 and 10, or at least far, far moreso than 12 was.  Although I'm not really sure WHERE its story went because I... think I felt compelled to make 8 characters and level them all up which is all kinds of tedious. What's funny is that I got FFCC really shortly after finding out that I'd have to get my wisdom teeth taken out after all, and I still dread getting them taken out -- even though I already did, four years ago.

You could probably lump The Spirits Within in there too but seriously who wants to remember that ever happening.

QuakeLive: I'm doing better than I thought, but something feels off with this game. The weird-ass netcode and collision detection has been discussed elsewhere, but the physics ALSO seem light to me. It's like nothing has any body to it.

Been playing FFX again lately. It's sort of like IX and X were the beginnings of an awesome ditch trilogy that never got its On The Beach.

I beat abaddon with Serph, too.

Except he hardly ever used Agi spells on me so wevz.

Doing Gaia's Navel - Another in CC. There's still a bunch of other optional stuff I can do too. And I'm at 43 hours. Which is 10 hours longer than it took me to beat the game the first time.

Actually I kind of thought the ENDING ending of Secret of Mana really undercut the serious stuff that'd been happening up to that point. Seriously it's like LOOK RANDI IT IS SNOWING !! and credits.

---edit---

Also I tend to think the Fairy ending in LoM is the best ending in that game for similar reasons. The Jumi ending is too damn chipper. The Fairy ending actually follows through on the themes. Ideally I think that Sandra probably should've cried instead of the MC, thus saving the other Jumis and redeeming herself, while ultimately getting turned to stone. And staying that way. Who here enjoys glue?

This Amadou and Mariam CD I got. Welcome to Mali or whatever. Just the whole thing.

This totally proves my point that P3's soundtrack was highlife. I will cut you.

Why do cars :(

Anyway so I'm played UT2K4 again since my laptop is got virus and I can't play UT99. Doing stuff like Bombing Run and fiddling with UTXMP which seems niceish. I'm horrid at DDom.

I should get an RPG mutator for it...

I thought Gunpei Yokoi was the mastermind behind metroid, and he got asploded by a car :(

kyuusei: Use that anti-forcetricity stuff and don't ever have Serph in your party.

beat the green dragon in CC. Think I'll go back and trap carnivore, though. That'd... be useful on the criosphanx probibly.

Bowling Green:

On campus, there's a yearly game of Zombies Vs. Humans. In the september, there's the Black Arts Swamp Fes... Er... Black Swamp Arts Festival. In August there's a tractor pull. And The Wood County fair which is probably shit. IDK I never go there. Sometimes there are musical events on campus and they always suck.  Other than that absolutely fucking nothing.
 
Lima:

August: Square Fair, which except for this year has been absolutely crap lately partly from a lack of interest and partly from a fear of race riots. Allen County Fair, which is probably the second best fair in the state after the State Fair, which is the best fair in the country probably.

Rest of the Year: Various other craft shows and home shows. Sometimes the civic center puts on classical music performances.

Otherwise absolutely fucking nothing.

She probably swang both ways.

No problem with Argilla. Sera's sort of annoying though.
6419  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Most Annoying Heroine!! on: August 13, 2009, 04:09:06 PM
CC spoilers.

Code:
Kid is a clone of Schala. Kid is not actually Schala, though. Do not conflate !!

And what's wrong with having a rude, unflattering, and awkward-looking heroine?

The dungeon designs were the only thing I wasn't that keen on about P1, and honestly, since they didn't bother changing them up in the remake, I can't imagine Snow Queen being particularly pleasant to go through, especially since P1 PSP is going back to the Japanese encounter rates.

Also from my understanding, Snow Queen's story delves* into the lives of a bunch of side-characters, whereas the Sebec storyline addresses why the town just turned into a jack-in-the-box house of dongs and hallways.

* why did i just use this word oh god
