The only Squall permitted here is you. As we sort through computer generated cut scenes, we’re trying to remember the power of friendship, completing the time loop, accepting sorceress power, talking to myself, wandering through the desert, collapsing in futility, finding our soulmate in the abyss, becoming a no winged angel, speaking without a voice, blowing feathers around, holding up wedding rings, staring at a headstone, shooting a home video, shoving hot dogs in the mouth hole, raising a finger in ambiguity, and finally watching our sad boy find his smile. Next week we begin season 4, featuring Suikoden and Suikoden II back 2 back.
