    It's a shame half the characters are pretty damn useless.

    Half is kind of unfair, though. Edward was pretty much the only one, and even he got a serious buff in the DS version!

    It was good to mix it up and make you play differently, but the "THEY'RE DEAD!!!! jk not really" card was played too many times to make the changes happen.

    I'm playing it right now, and and I wish they gave you warning when someone was about to leave. Thankfully though, the guide I'm using tells me to "STRIP THEM" whenever I approach a leaving point.

    I think the steam version strips them anyway

    Pick up an augment guide, though! You can gain some super good abilities if you give them to the right people!

    If I give an augment to a temporary character, does that mean I get more augments from them when they permamently leave? Augments are permament, aren't they?

    Something like that, but the key is to give them enough augments to get some really good skills.

    I didn't mind the party changing in and out. It kept things fresh and let you experience a lot of characters. One thing I did though after my first play through was to un-equip whoever I knew I was about to lose! It's been years since my last play through so i'm a little hazy on the details, but I remember if you un-equip someone, they will have stronger gear when they come back. I forget how many times this occured, but I have a vague memory of Kain coming back with Samurai? gear after the Giant. At least I remember getting better gear, maybe I'm just crazy....
