August 3, 2016: In the Temple of Light, Lightning found Fang killing monsters. How did she get there ahead of Light?
Vanille sounds… different.
Light and Fang convinced Vanille to listen to the souls. She realized that they didn’t want to be destroyed, but the High Priestess tried to force her to finish the Soulsong anyway.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Part Nine: Eyes Front

May 14, 2016: Helped a researcher piece together a flight recorder, but we couldn’t really make sense of what was on it. A pilot screamed mayday and saw something “impossible”. It sounded like a girl coughing. If it was the moment that the Chaos spewed forth from the temple, it could have been the Yeuls. Light and the researcher wondered if it was Etro.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Part Eight

May 8, 2016: To get the clavis, you need a special crux. To get the pieces of the special crux, you need to see the three murals in the ruins. To see the murals, you need tablets from the shrines strewn across the Dunes.
God must have wanted the Savior to do all this. But why? To prove their worth?
Fang says she and Light work better against gods, not with them.

April 29, 2016: OMGM (Oh My God, Moogles)

Unlocked Angel of Salvation and Hero of Glory. 12/42

Moogle Village is only accessible from 1900 hours to 0700 hours, when the red vines unfurl in Jagd Woods. Kinda contrived. Continue reading Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Part Six

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Part Four

April 14, 2016: Snow has Serah’s pendant. Did Noel or Hope give it to him?
I bought a new garb, Velvet Bouncer, which is “made for a mystical attacker”. It’s pretty boss. Makes quick work of weaker enemies and groups with Blitz and Heavy Slash.

Velvet Bouncer

AFAIK, it’s not a reference to The Bouncer, a weird little game that Square and Dream Factory made on the quick for the PS2 shortly after its launch.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Part Three: Lumina on the Loose

April 10, 2016: “The Girl Who Cried Wolf”: Lightning encounters a ringing telephone in a booth, and decides to answer it. On the other line is Louise, a girl who claims to be chased by people with weapons.
Light can still use some of her old tricks, like Launching staggered enemies Commando-style.

Once, Lightning committed a terrible sin. She needed help to battle Chaos, and so she called upon her sister, Serah. But she was cursed with the ability to see the future, and it claimed her life.

Lightning underwent a crystal sleep that felt deathless until the light of Bhunivelze, god of gods, touched her. He told her that if she saved the dying world, Serah could come back.

Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection Part Six

Sonic Spinball (1993)

The Museum description pokes fun at Dr. Robotnik’s “Pinball Defense System”. 😛

Spinball tries to combine pinball and platforming, with Sonic as the ball. That aspect makes enough sense, but it’s a difficult game; three lives, no continues. Some of the music is fine, but certain other tracks, like the one for the high score screen, are so cacophonous and industrial it makes some of the Silent Hill tracks seem like smooth jazz. It almost gives me a musical seizure.

Original Score: 2/5
