stand still, look pretty
Almost 11 hours in, and I finally made it to Baticul, although I had to save and quit before going to the castle. D wanted his computer back. We really should move the PS2 into another room instead of having it hooked up to his monitor.

I think I'm hurting myself by having it set to "very hard" mode and insisting on having Guy in the party, because in the boss battles he only does ONE point of damage per hit and can't cast spells. It takes forever to finish that way, and D got impatient waiting for me to finish and save.

Me: Sorry, but it takes forever when Guy's hits are only one point each.
D: Then what the hell good is he?
Me: He's pretty.

You know, it's also funny to me that Guy has mentioned Natalia completely unsolicited at least three times, and I know it's because "We need someone to exposit about a character you'll meet later", but with shipper goggles on, it comes across as "He has a thing for her". It's like in middle school when you like someone and try to work them into every conversation.

Other random important info I've picked up this time around:

LUKE: So Guy's parents are dead...
TEAR: You didn't know, either?
LUKE: Nope. I might've heard about it when I was a kid, but I can't remember anything from before I was kidnapped. And Guy doesn't talk about the past much, anyway.

Luke, I love you, but you are a self-centered little brat, aren't you? In seven years you've never asked him anything about himself?

And Guy's little startled reaction when they meet Cecille? Duhhhh. Knowing the whole story really helps with these little throwaway moments.

Yeah, I've printed out the info for the Cecille side-story. I'm not missing it this time, dammit.

Is TOA poorly balanced as to usefulness of party members? I remember this was kind of the case in FF7; some were just better than others, but the game was forgiving enough that you could still go with your favorite characters (Vincent Valentine + Tifa L. for me).

The fact that the protagonist is so much more powerful than the rest and that he had to be your party also made choosing easier.

For service and something Different, try Sora no Otoshimono.

They all have their strengths and weaknesses. It depends what you want them to do. I just insist on having a Guy/Harem fighting party, regardless of whether it's the best use of everyone. (I really should use Jade more.) And when the game makes you split up, I try to keep a healer in each group, and keep Guy and Nat together, just cuz.
