    Early-game Quistis wouldn't mind giving her GF to Squall, if you know what I mean.

    I don't know what I mean.

    IIRC she only gives him Shiva if he didnt get to the student desk to obtain them first. If he does; he obtains both at the same time. It's been years since I played though.

    Quezacotl. As has been mentioned, Shiva, too. Iirc, he gets them both via the study panel.

Squall's gunsword doesn't appear to work as an actual gun, so Rinoa's disc thing is about the only thing the FF8 cast can use in retaliation while trying to close the initial distance if Barret just immediately opens fire while Cloud spams lightning at them.

    He is not original rooster. He and Selphie belong to other gardens.


    He also has nothing in Barret in regards to badassery.

    Irvine Kinneas. As mentioned, he's got nothing on Barret anyway.

    In fairness, Selphie joins Squall's party before Rinoa does. Iirc, Selphie took part in the SeeD exam (messenger girl?) while Squall only met Rinoa the night of the SeeD ball and she doesn't join the group until the Timber/Forest Owl mission.

    Let's be honest: the entire fight will be Barret and Zell racing to see who can accidentally get their own team, and/or everyone they love, killed first. I'm betting that it'll probably end up with Balamb Garden crashing at full speed into Midgard, them the resulting wreckage gets crushed by a meteor loaded to the gills with missiles.

    Pretty much how I expected a thread like this to go. FFVII wins everytime and hey its true FFVII will always have a place in my heart, but from the opening Gunblade battle to the better characters I will always love VIII better and accept that im in the minority.

    Yeah, Cloud pretty much cleans house considering that he is stronger, faster, and much more durable than the entire cast of VIII. God only knows what kind of feats he and the rest of Avalanche will get in the remake.
    Tsubaki: Noel, get ready for tomorrow tonight.

    Noel: Why? What're we doing tomorrow night?

    Tsubaki: The same thing we do every night---try to get Jin in my pants!

    Noel:Ummm...

    Zell: "There ain't no gettin' offa this Garden we on!"

    Barrett: "That's my line, you idiot! If you steal any more'a my catchphrases, I'm gonna keep doin' this:" *Stuffs his face full of hot dogs*

    Zell: "Hey! That's my shtick! You can't eat all the hot dogs! Gimme those! I'll show you!" *Crams his face full of hot dogs*

    Yuffie: "Uh, guys? If you're stuffing yourselves full of hot dogs, then who's driving this thing?"

    *NORG pops out of a hatch*

    NORG: "DON'T-LOOK-AT-ME! I-JUST-LIVE-IN-YOUR-BASEMENT!"

    Selphie, Barrett, and Zell: "What the f-"

    *Balamb Garden crashes into Midgard*

    Ummmm? How would Yuffie be able to talk?

    Air Sickness, remember?
    Though much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
