Default Final Fantasy VIII General Discussion

Because we don't have one of these for each game and I don't understand why.

Anyway someone posted this awesome T-Shirt on the FB FFVIII group:



anyway Laguna is Squall's father, Rinoa is not Ultimecia, Squall is not dead and if you name his ring something funny you can do things like make Ultimecia junction something to her vagina.

Happy discussion

I think that covers everything.

Also, I want that shirt.

Agreed, we can probably close the thread now.

I've probably said this before, but I love the Squall is Dead theory. I know it's crazy, but I'd say it's actually less crazy than what actually happens in the last three discs of Final Fantasy VII. And it's actually quite a believable theory right up until the last moment of the ending FMV, I think.

I totally agree, it was one of my favourites to read about in the olden days. Btw was there ever any information about what happens with Rinoa's sorceress powers post-game? Does she remain the sole sorceress alive?

I think the Squall is Dead theory is interesting too. Not that I believe it, but I am willing to accept it if the developers turned around one day and said this is what they always had in mind (even if I don't want a dead Squall )

EDIT: @Lex - No idea, but I remember something from some time ago regarding Sorceress's powers that seems somewhat relevant. Bottom paragraph of the section, 'Nature', if it is true. Doesn't answer the question by any means, but I still figure it noteworthy regarding her powers (the part about each "succession" weakening)

Question:

How the fuck do you pronounce Quistis? (This is both a question and a statement). This has bothered me since I was a child.

Is it Kwiz-tiz? Or do we apply some French and say... like... Kwee-tee? Kwee-tis? Kwai-tai?

This. It's always bothered me too.

When I played it as a Kid I would have said "Quiz-Tis".
(I don't know why I put a Z in there.)
Or Que-Tis, both seem wrong.

Kwiss-Tis?

The phonetics of it in Japanese (キスティス; ki-su-ti-su) point to "kee-stis." I've always said "kwis-tis," though, and expect I always will.

Her last name, Trepe, is the really odd one here, though.トゥリープ is tu-ree-pu -- so, something like "tree poo." =|

Wouldn't it just be like "Treep"? Since the closest katakana can get to a sound ending in a "p" is "プ", if the intended represented word/sound ended in an "oo" they'd put a "ー" at the end, right? (or a small tsu if the sound is short and it's not the end of the word? I'm not an expert)

Yeah, the "qui" in Quistis is like the "qui" in "quiche". I will never pronounce it like that myself though. IX's Quina is "kwi" though.

Yes, probably. I can't look at it now without thinking "tree poo," though.
