Today should have been a Character Assessment post, but I didn’t get home from Target until 8:00. After some brief aerobics, I looked at my to-do list, and there’s a lot left on it. Those assessments can take upwards of four hours, and I haven’t even picked a character for my next one yet (though I don’t lack for suggestions from all of you lovely people). I also have numerous creative projects going on, so it would just be better for me to save my assessments for a less hectic time. I’m not giving up on them; they’re just being shelved for a while.
As for the biweekly questions, those aren’t going anywhere, since I have plenty that can be answered fairly easily, and I’ll try to post some of my more elaborate ones. For this week…
What is your favorite ability?
I’m going to cheat a little bit, or I suppose I must say “meta” cheat since my favorite ability is actually a combination of abilities, and its a glitch. Final Fantasy VI’s Vanish-Doom technique.
It’s a bug in the system that damn near everyone used, and since this was before the internet exploded, I have no idea how we found out about it. Maybe Nintendo Power? I didn’t really talk to my school friends about Final Fantasy, so it wouldn’t have been that. Regardless Vanish-Doom got us out of so many sticky situations. I’d use it if I were losing a battle and needed a quick out (also Phoenix Down or Life for undead enemies. Take that Phantom Train!).
I guess it doesn’t really count as an “ability” since every character could learn it. If I had to give a real answer, uhhhh…Meteor.
What ability would you use to crush your enemies? Is it a cheat one like my initial or is it a “legitimate” one? Feel free to use games outside of the Final Fantasy franchise!
