Wow. So I loaded the site and saw FF VIII review in way too many parts and gave up on it. I came back to it unable to sleep and... I'm so glad I did. Seeing Squall's fight in the intro with the chrous music with someone singing "buttsex, astroglide, glory hole, baaallllllssss" in tune to the music is probably now my favorite moment from FF VIII.
This isn't saying I didn't like FF VIII... actually I have the pc disks out because I've been planning a replay. But I'm not going to say there weren't many times playing through where I didn't want to choke Squall and call him an angsty bitch.
*edit* How sad is it that while agreeing with him complain about the Draw system my RPGer OCD kicked in and I started installing the game? On one hand I agree that it's tedius, and you almost never want to cast the spells because hoarding them to equip is more effective... however you can become OP with junctioning. And I must collect all of the spells. I must. Besides, compared to trying to max any Disgaea drawing spells is simple and not time consuming at all. Right? ... I need them.
*edit2* "As a whore walks around she picks up more anal tricks, which we all know is true." How have I not seen this before. Link highly appreciated.
