Damn, I guess i'll have to represent with FF7 then.

why: best and most well thought out story i have played in an RPG game ever. Did well with the graphics, the game engine was well crafted. It never got boring.

just disappointed no one brought it up before now.

Re: A warning about fake-capacity SD Cards (and other flash-media)

Only buy micro SD cards Branded with Samsung or Sandisk otherwise you risk being lied to.
