mariner Welcome to my blog. I'm sort of new to this whole blogging thing, so I haven't figured out how to update my custom greeting. That, or I am just lazy and don't really care. Either way, you're stuck looking at this stupid message and you know what? I don't care! That's right: I don't care! Otherwise, I'd obviously edit this out. But, uh... yeah. I didn't. Or did I?

Title: Gasp, a review!

OK, so technically it's a rewrite of an old review, but seeing as there's not a single sentence in this thing that was lifted from my old (and not so wonderful) review, it's close enough. Kind of a weird review, if I do say so myself. Heck, there's no intro paragraph! It's not exactly my usual style, but I kinda like it. I probably let my anti-RPG bias go too far with it, but whatever. What's the use of writing amateur reviews if you can't proclaim your own preferences to be 100% truth every once in a while?

Besides, it probably didn't help that I was playing FF Tactics while writing this (and finally finished it. Whew!). Egad, Square's had some awful storytelling before, but this is just downright atrocious. It's a good thing I stopped caring since the laughable death of a certain character introduced early on for the sole purpose of killing her. Of course, looking at all the reviews for this game it seems everyone else loved the plot. Sigh. I guess the number of plot twists, no matter how convuluted or out of the blue they are, is the sole indication of storytelling quality. Bleh. If this is the best Square has to offer, it's no wonder I hate RPGs so much.

FF Tactics & I aren't the best of friends. I never finished it, but the portion of the narrative I experienced actually felt rather stuffy in a semi-political Suikoden kind of way (minus recruiting fun, quirky characters of course).

FFT was an awesome game. I agree that the story was awful, but the battling was just so much fun. I didn't pay attention to any of the cutscenes and just fought the battles and had a blast.
