Final Fantasy Tactics Rants pt. 1: Onion Knight

This will be the first part of a series of blogs I'm going to make, reviewing some of the jobs in FF Tactics: WoTL, that either really call my attention, or that really pisses me off. Why? Because I'm bored and have nothing better to do (but study) and FF Tactics is currently my favorite game for the PSP, and it rocks.

The First Job I will be discussing is Onion Knight.

Level 6 Squire
Level 6 Chemist

Can equip all weapons.


One of the new job classes, the Onion Knight has very basic stats, and no real abilities. However, it has hidden potential, in that it has increased power dependent on the amount of other job classes the unit has mastered, much like Freelancers in other games like Final Fantasy V. To get one level, the character must master two jobs, so to get the maximun Onion Knight Level the character must master 16 jobs.

My Rant

I found out about the Onion Knight while looking at the FF Tactics job tree, trying to see all the jobs available for the game. I didn't read it's description because, i was just to darn lazy. But it called my attention... such a peculiar name as Onion Knight... and it was at the very top of the job tree. I decided that I wanted to unlock that job really badly, just to see why was that job on the top of the job tree.

After spending hours leveling up one of my characters to become a level 6 Squire and a level 6 chemist, just to get Onion Knight, thinking it would be the greatest job evah, besides Dark Knight.

Oh how wrong I was.

The job has no special abilities what so ever, besides being able to equip any sort of weapon. You can't assign an Onion Knight any other abilities like Items or Poach or Move +1. It's basically just attacking and hoping that you don't miss. You don't level up unless you master all the other jobs.

My question: Why would you ever want to have such a fail job? Even if it gets better with every job you master?


I must master 'em all!

End of Pokemon Reference.

That's the only point I see in actually unlocking Onion knight. So, my advice is don't bother using it because, besides of the suckiness of its attacks, it is mastered in lvl. 1, but unlock it for you to say: "Hey, I unlocked all the secret jobs in FF tactics!" Because trust me, there isn't any other reason.

Anyway, on a slightly unrelated note, I began to wonder again why the called them "Onion" Knight. I kept thinking about it and after a few minutes of analyzing it after I unlocked the job, I came to this conclusion.

Onions: They stink, they make you screw your face in a wierd way when you sniff them, and they make your eyes watery.

Bottom line: Onion Knight=Stinky Knight, Lame Knight, Good-For-nothing Knight.

Yep, I know, lame, but when you think about it, it's true.

Tell me what you think anyways. Thanks!

Half Life 2: A lot better than I expected.

Alright, I admit it; I'm a girl, with a slight fear of FPS for the hard-to-control game play. The only FPS that I have played, passed and actually enjoyed is Metroid Prime Hunters. I used to have almost little to no patience with games like Halo. That was until my bf made me play Half Life 2.

(Awesome pic is awesome.)

I seriously in love with that game! The story line, the plot, the game play, the headcrabs zombies, the antlions, and even that crazy man Gregori. I can't believe I actually made it past Ravenholm.

The game has amazing graphics. I love the way you can actually move around during cut scenes. It makes everything seem more realistic. The different types of zombies, it made the game more difficult, but still hella fun.

I love killing those fast zombies from affar. All you could here in my bf's apartment was me yelling: "I GOT YA MOTHAH F**KAH!" people in the building began to look at me weirdly.

Btw, I love Dog.

I know that this isn't the most interesting blog out there, but I just had to write about it. I felt slightly more hardcore playing that game. Now I'm going to try and play more FPS, now that I see that as long as you like the game itself, you'll eventually get better controlling the game play. Even though the game right now it's on easy, I've been pwning zombies and passing the game even faster than my bf!

I feel so special <3

Smash Brothers Brawl=Awesome.

Today I woke up thinking that it was just going to be another ordinary day in college. You know, with all the boring classes, Chinese Calculus teacher, First Aid, things like that. Little did I know that I would actually see some guys playing an imported game of Brawl in the cafeteria.

At first, with the game play i thought that it was just Melee, since all of them were using game cube controllers. But when i took a better look at it and saw Lucario, Dark Link, Luccas and Ike... well, I knew I was wrong.

The game play is almost, if not completely, similar Smash Brothers Melee with smoother graphic, cooler characters, cooler secret characters and awesome terrains. I must say I got an adrenaline rush just by seeing them play! I wanted to play too... but I had only an hour to eat lunch... and I was hungry... yes I know, I sinned.

I completely loved Luccas' Final Smash. It was epic! The reaction of some of the players were "lookit at the purdy meteors OMGWTF WE BE DED!" . Yeah, som of them were staring more at the specials than at the battle itself.

I was completely psyched when I saw Pit. I loved the way he fights, moves, everything! It was so fugging awesome! I also loved his special. Epic.

Luigi.... Luigi just made me laugh. His moves are great, his agility is amazing, but his special... well...

I'll leave you with that image... when you get a chance to play brawl, you know what I meant. Even though... his Final Smash was... awkward, it still made me laugh like hell.

I never got to see Ike's or Lucario's Final smash... :( But i hope I'll get to see it tomorrow, when I re-visit the cafeteria!   read

Surgeons, better start buying your Wii's soon.

Listen up kiddos. Believe it or not, a recent study has been made to prove that if surgeons use the Wii as 'warm up' before any major surgery, they have up too 48% higher on tool control, meaning that they will have less 'accidents' when dealing with the patient.

"Kanav Kahol and Marshall Smith of the Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona, took eight doctors in training and had them play games for an hour before performing a virtual surgery. Those who played on the system tested 48 percent higher on tool control and performance in the simulation. Those who played games that require precise movements, such as Kororinpa: Marble Mania--in which a player tilts the Wii Remote to move a ball around in-game levels--saw more improvement than those that let players succeed with broad gestures like swinging a tennis racket."

Quite surprising, no? This will probably decrease the urban myth that video games are evil, and that they were made to create an army of blood thirsty, sadistic, sadomasochist terrorists bend over World Domination and Mountain Dew. Or probably not. Who knows... but still:

Haha! Take that Jack Thompson!

God! Excrement! Those darn dubbers!

This is just freaking funny:

I was bored out of my mind one afternoon, playing Zelda minish cap when my bf showed me that pic. I got a great laugh out of it. Seriously, excrement? Can dubbers actually be that bad sometimes? Oh well, at least seeing it made my day. My English isn't very good, but at least it's not this bad lol.

I would fear them if I were you.


FTW.   read
