it just doesn't feel quite as good as FFV's system
It's not. Not by a long shot. You don't really get any skills to play with like you do in 5, and from what I remember a lot of the classes just amount to different flavors of stat boosts. It's like the DQ3 class system but with a lot more redundancy
Umihara Kawase Shun - Still prefer Sayonara just for the fact that I can save but also for no random fish spawning. Still need some proper explanation of how physics work. Also the PC version, at least, of Sayonara feels a lot smoother -- there's this slight difference in line physics I thiiink, where in Sayonara if you're hanging off of something and you shorten the line, it'll pull you around corners, whereas in Shun you just get stuck on the platform and I find that /really/ jarring.
Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying Shun, I just like Sayonara more.
Tail Concerto - Man I don't want rag on this because I know in some circles it's considered a forgotten classic and I'm trying to not be such a /negative Nelhaym/ but between the generic characters and storytelling, lack of any sort of exploration, barely-there level design, hitsponge bosses, dysfunctional camera, dysfunctional controls, and the soundtrack that was ostensibly composed by a Percocet overdose with a MIDI keyboard it found somewhere, the going rate for this game on eBay has done little to dissuade me from my theory that furries will buy anything.

Sayonara Umihara Kawase - Did Level 25, 50, and 27; got backpacks on 50 and 27. I think my big thing with being able to basically start from any level in this game is that it lets you experiment with how you approach the levels -- not having limited lives means you can be less cautious and I can see why that might be a bad thing for some people, but that goes counter to how I approach figuring out levels. Aaaand by that same token I think that freed up the designers to get a bit more creative with the level design, too?
STHA - Cleared the second ice place and picked up two more fairies. Beat the second Tail Viper. Have some mithril but I got some indication that I shouldn't make items till I get Doyle. Need to see if I can sleep the air polyps.
