Resurrect the Cadillacs & Dinosaurs team to do it, I beg you.

The FFT2 mock ups had more in common with Fire Emblem (or really, it looks like Fire Emblem series creator Shouzou Kaga's PS2 game Berwick Saga, what with the hexagonal grid so it would be legally distinct from Fire Emblem after the whole Tear Ring Saga lawsuit catastrophe)

Final Fantasy Profile would totally be a thing I'd play.

Has the rise of quinoa revealed that everyone has been saying Rinoa’s name wrong all along?

Yes, but I’ve tried it both ways, and “Rinn-o-wah” sounds much natural than “Reen-wha”

リノア. Ri-no-a. Not that hard.

The real question is, is it Kwiss-tiss, or Keese-tiss?

I believe they use Kwiss-Tiss in World of Final Fantasy, for as canonical as that is.

"Keese-tiss Trep-eh" is how I've always pronounced it.

I had a friend in highschool who called her "Rhino," which I'm pretty sure has been scientifically proven to be the best pronunciation of the name.

Had a friend in high school who insisted for a couple of years it was "Riona."

Default We all have that friend

I have a friend who pronounces "SeeD" as "see-dee", like the abbreviation for compact disc. Inexplicably, I worked with a girl at Software Etc. who also gave it the very same pronunciation. When I tried to explain that, thematically, "seed" makes more sense - they're in a Garden - they were having none of it.

As far as I know, they still pronounce it see-dee.

Hey ya'll, I've got an effort-post brewing about how much I love FFIV: Free Enterprise and why, but in the meantime, we're looking for folks who want to have a friendly race of it if anyone's interested. Details here.
