  • Usually I remember it by thinking of Spot the dog. But today I don't know what I did (to be honest, I did have a few other mistakes which I fixed up- must of missed that :P)

  • I have already lost all hope on any product produced by Square ever since The Three Fathers of Final Fantasy left the company. They got the rid of them to make more westernized games and failed to reach both western and eastern audiences. I will continue to have high hope for the day they finally gives up on their money losing nonsense and go back to their root of JRPG. But until then, I refuse to buy any Square product.
