Okay, the weapons/equipment kind of suck. I seem to remember from watching other people play that you can play with the slots on the weapons later in the game. However only having two things you can equip still kinda sucks. FF9 had a great equipment system.
I really wish there was an option to have the japanese soundtrack with english subtitles. Watching the few parts where they actually succeeded in matching the voices to the lips, i have to wonder how much they had to mangle what they were saying in order to accomplish it.
Okay, got my second Level 1 Key Sphere. Blue fur guy is right at the place where he can unlock the first one, and all of the sudden people seem to have stopped leveling up. Guess i need to stop wandering around the old highway collecting Ability Spheres and move onto a new area with higher AP monsters.
If i didn't already know Seymour was bad, i'd be getting some pretty serious preminitions from him already, especially with Tidus' comments about he didn't like him the first time he laid eyes on him or something like that.
Speaking of which, i can't decide what i think of Tidus' constant chatter to himself/the viewer. It helps explain some things sometimes, but other times the comments are inane, and other times they're over the top, and yet other times they're kind of spoilery.
The fact that he can't seem to figure out what happened to him is really annoying though. How many times does he have to be told that Zanarkand was destroyed a thousand years ago and the only people who can describe it at all are him, Jecht, and Auron before he figures out that yes, barring time travel he's never going to find (a non-destroyed) Zanarkand again?
It is amusing though that one of the stated goals of the main guy is to make it so his love interest never dances again :)
