I'm at chapter *spoiler* and this is the first point where there's actually been any music where i said "hey, i kind of like that."

Also encountered the first unambiguously aligned Silver Haired Pretty Boy (as opposed to silver haired annoying boy of course =)

Meanwhile Cid seems to be becoming a lot less ambiguous about his goals.

I really don't get the Sentinel job. It's got a counter-attack ability, but it only ever seems to counter the person you targeted when you selected the ability, not everyone who's attacked you. Maybe that would have made the job too powerful, but only hitting the one guy once makes the role rather useless. It also kind of contradicts the tutorial "help" you're given about the class. The only half decent use i've figured out for it so far is if both people are heavily damaged you can switch to Sentinel/Medic and hopefully the Sentinel can draw all the attacks until the Medic has finished healing you both.

I do like the way Snow can kick people while they're down while they're 20 feet in the air though :)

(Oh, and a side note, has anyone else lost a character during battle? Not died, just lost. During the boss fight using Lightning and two other people (Saze and Vanille maybe?) when you get knocked down a pit halfway through, all of the sudden i noticed Lightning wasn't there anymore. I thought she'd done at least one set of actions since we fell down the pit, though i couldn't swear to it, and she still had a full health bar. She just wasn't anywhere to be seen and didn't seem to be doing anything. Maybe she was behind the enemy where i couldn't see her and didn't have any good actions she could do? But i'm pretty sure she was set to Commando at the time.)

Edit: Damn it! Getting back to another character you haven't used in awhile and getting to spend the tons of CP that you've built up is one of the most fun parts of this game! Why didn't they let me do that with Fang? :(
