Gonna dust off my old guides from the early 2000s on playing Triple Triad. Should be fun!

I wish we could get the title changed to just "Final Fantasy VIII" and drop the "Remastered." I mean, FFIX was essentially a remaster and it didn't have that in the title :(

Welp, I was just going to snag this on Switch because portable Triple Triad, but this list is so doable (although there are a few that will be challenging for me) that part of me is now thinking a double dip may be in order. I'll just wait for one of you awesome people to publish a guide to help me out with the parts that'll be rough, haha.

Looks a lot easier than 7 or 9. 

 

I was never able to beat this game since I got to the third disc and my friend "accidentally" overwrote my save file. 

 

Anything missable in this list?

Never played Triple Triad back on PS1 so not sure how difficult beating all CC members will be but thank god you don't have to go fight the Queen of Cards.

You're locked into disc 4 and can't do a lot once you get there (actually, I believe at a certain point in disc 3 if I'm remembering correctly) so yes.

Nah I saw what you meant after I replied. 

 

On another note the only thing on here that looks iffy is collecting the timber maniacs. Does anyone remember if the old strategy guide listed their location or if there's any online ?

Easier than the Steam list.

1. 10,000 kills is gone.

2. Magazine addict is gone.  This was collect three other magazine types.

3. Finishing the game with Squall at initial level is gone.

1.  Timber Maniacs

2.  Pupu Quest

3. Defeat all members of the CC.  I believe the Queen gets very difficult to defeat if the certain card rules spread.

 

This is what I remember off the top of my head.

Took 20 hours to "platinum" on Steam last year.

Yes.  There is a guide that contains their location.  I think the old faq's for the original game still apply for the most part.

I used a steam guide for the specific achievements/trophies.

 

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=227529294

 

I also used a guide (most likely Absolute Steve's) from GameFAQ's for the general walkthrough.  There are a number so if you don't like one, you can always try another.  Site also has a large number of topic specific guides.

 

Hope this helps.

thankfully one doesn't have to do a low level one based on the steam trophy list ><. can't remember how long final fantasy 8 took but it's going to be plenty of hours invested especially with doing everything minus a few things the others have mentioned ie card queen.

how diff is it from Steam list?

It is a subset.  Most difficult trophies have been removed for the most part.

 

Added - I posted a link to the Steam achievement list earlier.

Should be plenty of guides and such at Gamefaqs. I guess that's the advantage of being a new 20 year old game, plenty of information that's still good.

some of those rules are really stupid and cheap. i enjoyed TT until those later rules.
