Separated from the limitations in city management and online mandation, I kind of enjoyed the time I spent with Sim City. The core gameplay was still fun and it sure was pretty to look at. I really hope Maxis learns from their mistakes and tries at another iteration eventually.

Yeah I kind of agree with this (though I think I'm a little more negative about it). The thing about the new Sim City is that it was just good enough to make you disappointed that it wasn't everything it could have been.

I'm not one of those "fast food is for the peasants" type of people but I think McDonalds is disgusting. I used to only go there when I couldn't afford anything else, but they went and raised the prices on a few of their things, so they aren't even cheaper than other places now. If I have no other choice, I'd get a Bacon Mcgriddle meal for breakfast, and chicken mcnuggets for lunch.

That sucks. I'm sorry Canadian Duders.

Selfish question, if the Canadian dollar sucks, does that mean its a good time for me to vacation in Canada?

I overpredicted in the 3rd match, thinking he was going to try to trick again and switched right into an air slash. I thought I was definitely going to lose after that but things turned out a bit differently.

My thoughts exactly. And then everything crumbled around me. Really fun battles though!

@encephalon: This is true, though there's a big difference between a third of the game being recycled content, and 4 hours of the game being recycled content. So for the sake of anyone who hasn't got to this part yet, I felt like I should address these chapter's length.

@believer258: That's basically right, except there's a boss at each crystal that you do have to fight again. Those 4 all have pretty obvious weaknesses though, and if you were just fighting them, it couldn't take more than like an hour per world.

@fragor87: The problem with surprising your opponent is that it only works once, unfortunately. Good luck to you as well!

Here's the matches if anyone's interested. The first is worth a watch, and the second should hide in shame forever.

The Norende stuff was weird. It was kind of cool in the beginning to get those overpowered weapons, but I don't think they stayed overpowered long enough to make a difference after like the first half of the game, and you still had to be smart with those weapons in most boss battles, so it didn't feel like it completely broke the difficulty for me or anything. Though it was really disappointing to start stealing end game stuff from bosses only to find out that it was worse than the high level Norende stuff.

I do kinda appreciate JRPGs that don't hide all the best weapons/armour on bosses and you have to steal it from them. Like, thanks, Chrono Trigger, you're a great game and all, but I don't want to have to use Ayla in like all the boss fights in the later parts of the game. I remember some of the Final Fantasy Tactics games having similar problems.

On the other hand, I do dislike that Examine is stuck on stupid Freelancer, so I guess I'm just going to have to keep a FAQ open to look up boss HPs and elemental weaknesses.

I hate it when you have to steal all the best stuff from bosses, but that's because I never use a thief. Then the one time I do use a thief, the stuff is worse than what I already had. Oh well, my Edea's hit count goes for days, and Life Thief combined with her amazing speed made her one of my more survivable party members, so I don't regret it.

I never used the abilink stuff, but that sounds awful. Summoning people is cool though, I liked getting to see all my friend's characters. Late game they aren't very powerful anyways, I just used them to keep my chain going for buffs. You do have to exercise a bit of restraint with them early on though since they can take out bosses in a hit. In the end of the game I think there's some neat pay off for the street pass stuff.

@jinx1: Lots of respect for the eeveelution team, always something I wanted to do but never got around to.
