Lunar Whale went to the moon.
Enterprise was the one that got the Hook attachment to carry the Hovercraft.
Falcon was the one stolen from the Red Wings and had the drill attachment, as well as the upgrade to fly over magma in the Underworld.
Playing: Final Fantasy III UMD - Saronia Kingdom, Ni no Kuni - post-game
Dragon Quest>Ys=SMT=Tales>Final Fantasy, but I enjoy all five.

I have a better question:

Why do Final Fantasy games go with "airship" instead of the obviously superior vernacular choice of "heli-boat?" I mean, "airship" sounds kinda bland. "Heli-boat" sounds more accurate, since they take a boat and just strap a propeller to the mast. Plus, it makes me giggle like a little girl when I say it. "Heli-boat."

Final Fantasy 7? That was an airship. Final Fantasy 8? That.... that was a spaceship - no air there. Final Fantasy 10? I have no idea, airship may have been good there since I think it was hi-tech-ish or something.


You didn't play 9?

Pretty sure the TC has not, in fact, played "millions upon millions" of rpgs.

Nah, I was getting more and more out of the whole "JRPG" thing by then. I tried 10, because it looked kinda sci-fi-ish, but dropped it shortly after the "big twist" with what the main character really was. I just said "Screw it, I'm not playing any more. Can't take it seriously."

I won't insult anyone who likes it or other games like it, but I will just say that it's not for me. I like my RPGs more like Phantasy Star 1-4 and Mass Effect and less like... well, basically Final Fantasy.

I prefer airship to instant teleportation.
Make you feels you're on a journey.
If someone post "I don't care", they actually care VERY much.
If they DON'T care, they WON'T bother posting.

I agree, TC. Seems over used. I think it's high time they think up new ways to air travel.

You saw it here first.

Leave airships alone they need to continue but give free moving airships not just choose a spot and you are there.

Young heroes between the ages of 12-17 make RPG and other video games better then older heroes 18-21 and over.
