    I still don't get what you mean. What's wrong with the huge materia?

    I'm not sure what you mean about Final Fantasy VII going weird on disc two, could you explain.

    I'm glad you noticed that the Orphanage stuff on Final Fantasy VIII was subtly foreshadowed. A lot of people here miss that, and I keep saying that it was foreshadowed (though I haven't done so for a while). If it had been more obvious foreshadowing in it would have looked really bad in my opinion.
    The one true comparison to love and hate is; when you allow either to overcome you, it can make it so that you canít think of anything other than that one person...

    yeah, it was foreshadowed, unfortunately if Square had been more obvious about it they still would have caught flack for beating you over the head with it...

    In experience, Final Fantasy VII and the huge materia was bit of an overwhelm. Also drawing, junctioning etc was a little overboard too. In VII the huge materia offered every spell, or command, or summon with just one materia for each color. In VIII however, you could overload your characters with GFs or take hours to where everyone has two or three GFs at a time. So both games had an easy trade materia or junctions between characters. Hope you have fun in Final Fantasy VIII to the original poster and all else who get to play this.
