In many ways I think its one of the best Shining games. Loved the friendship system and the characters and everything else about it.

Yeah, yeally? I alwyas thought it was weird for Sega or Nintendo fans of the 16-bit generation to go with the Playstation choice (though I had all three of the major 32-bit era systems as soon as possible >_>. Plus luck enough to have had both SNES & Genesis too). I mean, When PSX came out, I didn't see one game I wanted or liked (including Wipeout, which I briefly tried at at a Rental store where it was setup... still trying to like it/get into it), not until Twisted Metal 2 came out that finally made me want to try a PSX game.
I choose Sega Saturn ASAP because they had a rich heritage of great franchices, which included some of the best arcade games ever (and the most technically advanced too). Plus all Sega games had this special magic + games on Sega systems that could not be denied by a true gamer (well, just not a typical jo-blow casual gamer that's contributing to this videogame downfall that started with this nitche market becoming too mainstream due to the popularity of the PSX, is what I mean). Anyways, I started my Saturn gaming with Daytona USA & never regretted buying this system ever, even though it failed. As I still really love this system the best for some reason?
I know I'm always sounding negative towards S*ny & their PS, but I just hate what they did to the videogame market (what I explained in the last paragraph) + I miss Sega of old.
And in a way, if you are a Shining Force fan (one that's in pain due to no new & true Camelot SF game or at least a Camelot SF spin off in the series), it would seem that you must hate S*ny in some way or another too, no? I mean, if it wasn't for S*ny domination of the market with it's army of casual gamers, Sega Saturn would of still been around, and so would of Sega, Camelot & the true Shining Force as made by Camelot
! Or at least one more game in the franchise made my Camelot...
I mean, maybe that's why SFC has S*ny beeped out?

My brother has a friend that's thriving in Miami. Sounds most excellent to me. And thanks for the best wishes... and sorry for the late reply... just knew this post was gonna take awhile. >_>
