^ I'm having the same problem. My Wi-fi doesn't like to stay connected for more than 10 minutes, but I have managed to do a mission or two co-op. It is a lot more fun co-op but everything is balanced for the number of players, so it's not difficult to make it work single-player. Though that way doesn't really give you too much incentive to play around with the different job classes, unfortunately.

Kuja's too sexy for this thread, too sexy for this thread... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=P5mtclwloEQ

And like I said earlier, I think Kuja is one of the most underrated FF characters and a fantastic villain.  I'd say he's one of the top 5 villains of the series.

Anyway, I never found Amano's extreme heroin-chic art style pretty at all.  Everyone looked sickly and emaciated.

I find his work to be somewhat hit or miss. Namely because he can do buff and swole dudes and really good monster designs, but everything else is waifs and bizarre accessories and color patterns all the way down. That said, the fact that he has a unique and distinctive style in of itself matters a lot to me because that is really fucking hard to do well.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I give credit to distinctiveness.  Like, I can look at a whole bunch of character art and instantly recognize particular pieces as Amano's work.  That being said, different isn't always appealing to me.  I can name several bands whose music is truly distinct, that you can easily pick them out from the rest of the crowd, but it just doesn't do "it" for me.
You can brag about your 5000+ friends on social media all you want, but riddle me this: how many of them would help you move?

The more I think about it, the more you're definitely right, which probably feeds the fact he is underrepresented since I had to think about it.

I think the bigger problem os FFIX is just an underrated game overall. In the rpg fanboy/girl circles it's popular enough, but in more generlized circles many people didn't bother with it, unlike VII, VIII, X, XII and all the overly advertised ones. Hell I don't even recall IX gettin a proper commercial...

TASTY!

You must have been a Pepsi drinker then....

The real reason why its underrated is because the PCs are superdeformed with animal/monster-ish traits which is unacceptable to the fans of the increasingly realistic human form depictions that the later FFs segued into.

(That, and it was really hard to go back to for the longest time since everything took forever and you needed a working PSX or PS2 to run. Of course this will soon be a totally moot point thanks to its PC release.)

I remember FFIX being really offputting to me when it was new because of all the animal people which is funny because I was a hardcore furry back when I was 13. like a yiff level 10 wolfsona and conlangs and connections to shady people on the west coast who were probably all ZZTers. the whole shalam. now i just walk around the river having vague religious experiences. where's the rpgs for that, haahn?

I don't know what a single one of those terms means...

I know enough to know that all my sympathy for Mesh just went out the window.

I find it more hilarious that ZZTers of all things gave me an actual definition.

fwiw ZZT is more like 25 years old now, not 16.

what i'm saying is that the modern deep web is the normal web of the past and that's where i grew up okay i'm just

The only part of the sentence that made sense to me was ZZTers, who obviously are ZZ Top fans. Your link proves I was so far from being right its just not funny. To be fair they are kinda furry so it made sense to me...
