    If your regular attacks can create shockwaves like that I might have to pick up this game just to play monk.

    Always wanted to check this game out, but I can’t afford to hold a second job.

    Every time I go back to playing this game, I realize it’s probably one of the most “Final Fantasy” games out there. If you don’t like FFXV and like the classic style (not combat) presentation of old, then this is right up your alley. It’s my favorite FF game and I always end up coming back to it. Many people don’t give it a chance.

    I meant with my comment that I don’t have the free time to devote to it (“second job” was a reference to the game itself).
