I was actually planning on raising Sheeda as an archer since she's capped her Spd as a Peg Knight and that I thought it would be nice to have an archer who doesn't suck. Killed off Gohdon and George because they suck and I need to keep my numbers low for the second Gaiden chapter.

Code:
Finished rescuing people from the foundation in XSep1. Now I've got to talk to the mayor, pass go, and collect $200.

Otherwise a slow week (what with school starting back up again).

Started over on Half-Life 2, in The Orange Box. That auto-save function can be a pain in the rear sometimes. There were moments where I had no health and ammunition and then the checkpoint save went into effect, and I was screwed, yet I still managed to claw myself through.

Beat the first mission in the Human-campaign for Disciples 2. Good stuff, but I wish you could transfer more than one of your heroes between missions.

Sheeda should stay as a class that lets her use Lances, her Wing Spear is pretty much the only thing special about her, and the only reason to use her at all.  Her STR is way too low for her to be useful otherwise.

And the Gaidens are worthless.  There's no extra story, the characters aren't any better than the ones you are killing off, and ultimately you're just limiting yourself.

@Tomara: The only problem is that MAges have a base 20% MAG growth, and only units who starts as a Mage get natural MAG growth.  So anyone who didn't start as a Mage or Cleric isn't going to get shit for MAG which, while less important to have high than in previous games, is still important to have SOME of.

Mag growth is not that important in a game were enemies barely have any resistance. Shiida's strength growth is very poor whatever class she's in and enemies do get defense. She's better off as a speedy mage, because she's do some decent damage that way.

But then she loses the Wing Spear, which is the very thing that makes her a good unit.  You can make any of the Peg Knights into a "Speedy but weak mage", but none of them lose out on using the Wing Spear and those delicious triple STR attacks.  If you want to make a non-mage into a mage, you should pick somebody that isn't that great to begin with, like Tomas or Navarre, or either of the othe two Peg Knights(Est should stay as a Peg Knight because she's ludicrously strong; wasting her amazing growths by turning her into a Mage should be a crime), that way you aren't wasting potential greatness in an attempt to get a few mediocre mages.

And I already pointed out that you don't need a lot of MAG to be effective, but you do need SOME, esp. since books don't have very high power.  20% MAG growth isn't going to get you almost any at all, unless you feverishly RNG abuse with in-battle saves.

Weakness hitting weapons are everywhere, just buy some for your good characters.

Shiida's base magic growth is 5%, her base strength growth is 10%.

Her magic growth as a mage is 35%, which is pretty good. It becomes 25% after promoting to a sage.

Her strength growth as a pegasus knight is 20%. It's 25% at most and that is as a paladin.

Magic gives her ranged attacks, which is what every unit with crap defense and HP wants.

Broke down and bought a DS (real late to the party.) Bought FFTA2 and I'm liking it so far. Yeah, like FFTA, story blows so far, but I still love the gameplay.

Little late to the party, but started up Portal.  Pretty good.  I like the humour.

Eternal Sonata -- Recruited Jazz, Claves, and Falsetto.  GOOD GOD, why are these three not my main characters?  They KICK THE SHIT out of Polka and Beat and...  The other kids.

THERE IS A BRAWLER NAMED FALSETTO.  HER NAME IS FALSETTO.

Falsetto.

Totally up my alley in all the right ways.

Tomara: I'm pretty sure Mage only gives a +20% MAG growth.  And the Wing Spear is vastly superior to any of the other type-kill weapons.

It basically comes down to this: You have have a very powerful Peg Knight with a powerful unique weapon that covers many bases at once, or you can have a mediocre Mage that could be generically replaced by pretty much any other fast unit in the game.

You're missing the point Gen! Right now I'm just looking for a class that doesn't have high speed since she capped hers as a Peg Knight. Plus it's nice having an archer that doesn't suck right now (she trumps Norne in both Str and Spd which is what Norne trumped Gohdon with when I killed him off).

I was actually planning on raising Sheeda as an archer since she's capped her Spd as a Peg Knight and that I thought it would be nice to have an archer who doesn't suck. Killed off Gohdon and George because they suck and I need to keep my numbers low for the second Gaiden chapter.

At least they're the one challenging thing about Normal mode. Besides, a lot of characters are cardboard cutouts anyways plus I get to work on making a Harem for Marth (this would have been awesome if he was as pantless as he was back in the original but I'll take what I can get). Also Athena's awesome and I'm still working my way to the next Gaiden chapter (also Hardin's dead since
Code:
he's a dirty traitor).

I don't think those stats carry over, but whatever.

Just bought Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard, and the game is amazing.  Just gunned down Dexter's Robot sextoy/assassins and I'm hunting him down in his zombie/soviet/Haloguy infested house.  With a Watergun.

This is the best 3rd person shooter ever.

Dang - I didn't realize Matt Hazard was out!  Gotta get it.  Wonder if there's a demo...

Picked up Retro Game Challenge yesterday.  Just lost the 15,000 point Rally King challenge by croaking with 10 points left to go. :P

I've been slogging through the missions in Crisis Core - anyone here actually finish them all?  I don't know if I care enough any more.

Matt Hazard is amazing.

"An ellipse?  What the hell man?  What the hell is that even supposed to mean?  I've never understood you RPG guys and your damn ellipses.  How many gamers have wasted their lives clicking through your damn ellipses?"

Been playing Star Ocean 4.  Fun game.  Finally unlocked the fighting arena and the bunny races.  Slightly disappointed that you can't see the stats for the reward items without purchasing them.  Either way, I bought a kickass bow for Reimi since I enjoy using her.  Kind of conflicted on what techniques to use.  Her kick-thing tech seems nice for when enemies get close.  I also like her new area of affect move (the one that shoots a single arrow but turns into a ton of arrows in a 360 degree radius around the enemy(ies).  

I'm conflicted whether to spend points on that one or keep her very first technique (which still rocks).

Also, what all carries over in a New Game+?
