Castlevania so you can tell me how to do it afterwards. Shadows is pretty good.

They both sound pretty...shady.
Much like everything good in life...
Fourth gen had some hella difficult fights.
Glad to hear it has some challenging fights. makes me want it even more lol. How is it?
Combat amounts to "Die a whole bunch of times to build SP, unload skills, hope to kill boss in 1 round before he can unleash massive AoE attack". Hate it.
Like the story, the generational aspect, the changing protagonist.
Think I'll finish Gen4 then take a break for a bit before pushing through to try and finish the game.

Bow chicka honk honk
Hell, I do that everyday. Just ask my wife. She'll tell you.
If something requires a fine touch and/or no klutziness, don't ask me to do it as I'll invariably fuck it up.
Why...why...WHY can't I choose all 3?!?!?!
You could click the achievement and it tells you which friends have it and which friends have played the game but don't have it. =P
Well, that kinda presumes the people still have the game. :p Eh, probably won't bother. Looking at some of the other MP achieves makes me not want to bother with it.

Probably just play it on a secondary tag so I don't have to give a shit about the MP.
OCD Wussy Mc Wuss pants. But really, that's what I'd most likely do if I were even remotely interested.
i had it - but i already lost it again...
500 Chains & 50 Pimp kills? Bleh. Not even remotely interested in doing that, even through boosting.
MP in that game is glitchy as fuck, as well.
ps3 directors cut fo su
That's kinda what I was thinking.
Also I think I had a bout of temporary insanity tonight...I was installing Star Ocean, looked down and said, "WTF am I doing?!?"
Yeah, you thought FF XIII was a grind, huh? LOL

I think I keep that game around for the same reason an alcoholic keeps a bottle of booze around...to remind himself of the dark times and not to let it happen again.
I know you gotta be glad that's over with.
You have no idea. When I was farming 'toises, I kept yelling, "DIE ALREADY!" after the fifth retry...only to get no drop. 81:38:11 for a final time.
That makes game #11 out of the 13 I bean-dived, that I've finished. All that's left is Burgertime World Tour (will not happen due to the 5* thing) and Agarest Zero.
Not a bad completion time at all. Those turtles can be stubborn. Time for XIII-2? Congrats by the way!
Nice one Rhy.
Haha, finally knocked it out. Congrats!
Stupid damn mission 64. I had 2 minutes to spare on the target time and only got 3 stars. Bullshit sez I.
Nice. I'm guessing you'll be happy to get this one over with lol.

Two missions to 5* and 5 Dark Matters to get. Need to do the Gigantuar and that last guy. The finish line is in sight. Is 13-2 as bad for grinding as this was?
I don't know about grinding in 13-2. I didn't 100% it because I didn't like the game. So I pretty much rushed through the game just to finish it instead of trying for
achievements. I wouldn't think is though if I were to take a guess. I'm just basing that on how easily accessed everything in the game is, so I could be wrong.
Taking off Genji Gloves increased the Target Time to 22min. Finished in 11 this time. 5*s done, just got about 8mil on a Long Gui + Dark Matters left.
Long Gui done. Got Shaolong fights down to ~2min per and figured out. Now to just get those bastards to actually drop the Dark Matters.
Is there an accessory that helps increase drop rates of rare items? It's been a while since I've played FF13 extensively, but I seem to remember crafting an item like tht
Ya, the Connoisur's Catalog. Just finished it. Only took like an hour of farming Shaolong's to get the 5 DMs. And done with this frustrating game.
Tired of grinding brontosaurus thingies?
oh man, yeah that last part was at least a third of my game time
Thats why I gave up and decided to come back to the game in a year or two. LOL
It wouldn't be so bad if there was any other way of making money besides selling crap. Or if I could actually beat the 'toises w/o using the summon.
But I need highly levelled weapons/items to do that, which I can't do without money. By the time I have those weapons, I won't need to kill them.
Yeah, once you've got some decently-leveled Level 2 weapons and jobs maxed for the most part, it goes much quicker, and a bit more fun, to down them with Highwind.
Even for that, I still need the Genji Gloves to uncap the damage. I've already mastered every role for all characters, but they don't seem noticeable...better.
It really is mind boggling that mobs don't drop gil in that game.
20 more platinum ingots then I can start farming Dark Matters...yay...
The real concern are the traps. Moon blossom seeds for money.
Got one trap tonight. I could turn that one into three fairly easily. And then turn one of those three into three more.
Still need about 2 mil more crystogen points to max out all roles though, so we'll see what I get.
I still went for the 'toises; you need something like two million to turn one into three anyway. I'd rather go for money with a chance of traps, shorten the process.
For me, I kept getting nothing, ingots, hardly anything, a few ingots, three consecutive traps. The hell, RNG.
I've been well and truly fucked by RNGs for a long time. I NEVER get any good drops in MMOs for instance. Take City of Heroes for instance. I got like 4 purple drops over
the course of like 4 years. Purples were the rarest. I know people that got that many in a DAY.
And of course, today I got a pretty good seed for the RNG. Three traps in the space of about an hour. Two were back-to-back.
Spent ~2.6mil gil for upgrading. Need 1 more adamantite, 5x dark matters, 2x traps, the Gilgamesh-bought weapons and then the upgrades to *.
congrats too! :D
I need to watch the GI Joe movies. Or is there only one?
There's 2. Rise of Cobra and then Retaliation. First one is ok, second is a bit better IMO. But no Scarlet in #2. I imagine Cover Girl would be in #3 (if ever made).
It's a grind. As much as I enjoyed FF13, those missions got tedious really quickly. IIRC, Lightning, Fang and Sazh made 5 staring them a lot easier for me. There's a
mid-level pair of guns for Sazh that allows him to just rip through everything. I can't remember which guns they are, but I remember it making everything a lot easier.
What do you think of the game overall? Enjoy it or not so much?
It wouldn't be so bad if you could redo the missions from the mission screen rather than tramping back to the Cie'th stone and having to go back to the spawn point.
It's a pretty game, but boring as hell. Still have to grind all 9 stages for non-innate roles for everyone, plus build up the spare points for when stage 10 unlocks.
Have about 35 more missions to do as well for 5*.
Aww, that sucks. The battle system isn't that great, but I can easily overlook bad gameplay if the story is good and I thought FF13 had a great story.
Welp, time to start grinding for crystogen points.
Are you enjoying it any more than you did at first?
I'm getting real tired of the 2-person parties.
haha. It should get a bit more exciting later. It'll never be as fun as the typical 3-4 man parties, but it should get better. It did for me at least.
It's like the difficulty curve didn't account for only 2 people in the party rather than 3. Not looking forward to the CP grinding to come.
Just wait. Once you hit a certain chapter the difficulty just skyrockets.
Yeah, it gets more difficult later. It doesn't get hard, but it definitely gets somewhat challenging. I didn't use the crafting feature much at all though so that could
why it was challenging to me. I'd recommend taking the time now to learn the system before you get there.
