  1. I might get it again, it would be interesting to try this 2D mode thing. Apparently SE isn't going to sell this a normal game price, it's supposed to be 30 or 40 bucks. I'm not even done the game yet though, I'm on act 2 on 220 hours lol. If I do this again, you can be sure I won't be talking to everyone in the towns after every event. :/ I'm doing it now because it is my first playthrough, but it sure is pumping he hours in the game.
  2. I see no one has the plat yet, along with other trophies at 0%. Are they glitched, or is no one playing this?
  3. Nice, this should come in handy. I'm on normal in the last chapter, it's already hard enough, but by now I've come to understand how important materia is. I like the challenge though, even if it's tough. Guess I'll have my fill on hard mode. Thing is in the beginning of the game there's so little you can do with materia that it's difficult to see how important it is until later in the game, except for exploiting elemental weaknesses.
  4. It took me a good forty minutes to get, but this is with reading about it and watching this guide thoroughly. It's not because I was good lol. I got him 44 to 43. That's one thing I noticed, he almost always ends at either 41, 43 or 44 no matter how good or bad you do, or at least that's what was happening to me. He seems to get a boost at the end of the first round and the first half of the second. His pattern never seems to change and when he falls off at the end of the second round you better try and get over what he has if you're not too far behind. It is a tricky trophy to get because of how fast you need to keep your rhythm. You can't go too fast or you will press a button too early as the prompt appears again and mess up, but after doing it often enough you get a feel for when it pops up again so you can keep yourself in check. As for the pattern changing all the time, what I did was stick a mental image in my head of the buttons, but only when I was on a top or bottom button. Like imagine if you tilt your controller downwards to the left, you would have square and x on the bottom and triangle and circle on top. So before the prompt disappears I "started" in my head with either a top or bottom button. Say the sequence is triangle, x circle and square, I started memorizing it with square, so in my head it became square, triangle, x and circle, bottom top, switch sides, bottom top, switch sides, bottom top...at least that helped me, because then the pattern is "always" the same. Reversing it works too; top bottom, switch sides, top bottom... I love this game, but I was getting a little tired of all the damn minigame trophies. :/ Mind, none of them are nowhere as bad as this one though.
  5. I liked Risen 2 (and 3) but yeah when you're cleaning up trophies it gets a little monotonous. Both games have the same type of trophies, pretty much. A bunch of separate files are needed, those damn zombies and panhers in 2 that you can barely avoid when they jump you...ugh. I'm not done FF7R on normal yet, but I've been reading a lot on hard mode lately and I'm dreading it lol, that and the pull-up trophy. But so far I'm having fun with it and the boss fights are great. Eligor confused me a bit though...at one point you need to cast wind on him when he's in the air, but then he casts reflect and Cloud says you have to take care of the barrier first. Unless I missed something, there is no dispel materia in this game? Got him anyway. My bigger problem with the game so far is, I'm on chapter 14 and there really isn't a lot of materia...I haven't found any real cool combinations to use since there's not much, doesn't help that your weapons and armor never really have that many slots. So I invest in as many "needs more materia" skills as possible. The Reno and Rude fight is where things are just starting to get interesting with materia play. That fight only dragged on for me because I really wanted to steal both their bracers. To be fair, it was like that in the original game though. Materia/equipment didn't really get interesting until a little after leaving Midgar.
  6. My favorite part of the original is Midgar and I remember wishing you could explore it more...well now I can. I'm liking it a lot, combat is really fun, Barret is hilarious but there's not much I can say as I'm only on chapter 2. I like taking my time in games. I spent like an hour walking back and forth listening to people in the streets after the bombing. So far I love the attention to detail. I spend way too much time looking in store windows and food menus haha. Had a bit of some problems with the combat at first and I'm not yet comfortable with the shortcuts but it will come. At least it feels smooth, and it is satisfying to kill things. What irks me a little is the camera while you fight, but it's no real biggie.
  7. Once I discovered the joys of cavorting, I used the strategy against the dwarf bosses in Hearnhold as well and the third enraged redcap. As you mentioned, having a high intelligence for your hard and elven wine on hand is a must though. Good videos you have here, I'm glad to see other people playing this game.
  8. Not really having a hard time with my extreme run, using a magic build. Was only hard in the beginning. Useful trick for money though, would have been handy in the beginning of my extreme run as money is hard to get...doesn't matter much now because as a magic user, can't wear much of anything What's up with this weird glitch where you get two Aphras after saving her buddies though? On normal mode I didn't get that, but on my extreme run I got two Aphras on the mission where you save her friends. o_O
  9. So it did work, but the thing that happened last time I played happened again. I can't just run into him, the fight won't trigger. As @Optinooby says, I had to spam X near his ass for the fight to start. So weird. Guides just say to run into him. Oh well, got him, he's done for. Without cheats. Kind of wish I could have seen The End, just wasn't happening. Never saw it once. Not even going to look it up, need to get it myself. Thanks for the input guys.
  10. Do hero drinks and holy wars stack if you use them a second time before the first one's effect are up? I'm actually really worried about this boss. Back when I played I never got to fight him. I did everything right, and he popped up. A big purple monster, yeah? But when I ran into his legs or interacted with him, nothing ever happened and he just dissappears when the timer's up. :/ Tried time and time again, same crap always happened. Hope it doesn't do that now.
  11. I gathered that from your username lol. Josh la brioche lol
  12. Yes, it worked great for me too. He has videos for all places with random and same/plus, very useful. How the hell did anyone ever figure out that you need to inspect draw points certain amounts of time though lol.
  13. When you visit Trabia Garden after the major story plot, go to the basketball court. All the way to the left are two people, one of them a girl squatting down. If you look at her arms animation it looks like she takes a cigarette to her mouth, puffs at it and then brings her arm down again. She keeps doing that so it looks like she's smoking. There is no cigarette graphic in her hand though. Probably wasn't in the PS1 version either, hell if I can remember, plus that's probably not even what it's supposed to depict at all. I'm just weirdly reminded of cigarettes in games after playing La Pucelle Tactics and seeing Croix's victory animation where he smokes, but no cig is there. Yet if you look up official artwork of that game, so many characters smoke. :/
  14. ^ The mark of a true warrior. But seriously, what the hell kind of fight was that? Tonberry King was a joke. NO, I did not use any cheats. What I did learn though, was that using Meltdown on the little Tonberries and keeping Squall on low health so he could use Renzokuken on them worked extremely well. So I figured, I'll do that on the big guy. So Squall was stuck on 600 hp throughout most little Tonberry guys, and stayed like that until the king showed up. Squall was lv 70, Quistis 36 and Zell 40. I used Meltdown on him once, then went nuts with Renzokuken, if it didn't prompt, I'd skip until I got it. Now guides say to use Diablo with 1000 comp, which I had with Quistis, but the one time I used it it missed...plus apparently this fight lasts like half an hour? Mine was barely 3 minutes long. Just Meltdown and don't heal Squall, or if he dies use a regular phoenix down so his health is always low. Guides also say that several Tonberries might be with the king when he shows up, but I had him alone. May have to do with me exiting and saving after every one when I got to 17 little Tonberries killed?
  15. Thanks. For the timer, mine left after I got Odin.
