March 2, 2011: Fuuka determined that the Shadow is on Shirakawa Boulevard, a hotspot for love hotels. That’s why the most recent victims of Shadow attacks and the Apathy Syndrome that they cause have been pairs and couples.
Yukari was unsure if she should go, but Junpei teased her, so she decided to tag along. “But this time, I want a piece of the action!”
Kasumi took her, Mitsuru, and Akihiko to the Boulevard…
November 9, 2010: I was pissed that I could only keep eight Personae at once.
I found a floor in Tartarus that spawned nothing but Wealth Hands. I defeated a couple and got Old Coins from them. I remembered that Theo had a request involving Wealth Hands’ item drops. What I didn’t realize was that Theo wanted the RARE item that they drop. This was after I left the floor. Excuse me while I die from shame.
Oh, well. At least the Wealth Hand quest doesn’t have a deadline.
Showing up those Wealth Hands was pretty good, though. They almost ALWAYS run away. Junpei actually defeated the first one. He’s my hero now.
Is Final Fantasy II the worst Final Fantasy game? Not in my mind, not in terms of the one I enjoyed the least. FFII is a JRPG with decent gameplay, but it feels very dated and bland in certain aspects. FFII introduced a lot of tropes and elements that were refined in later FF games, such as:
Named characters with defined personalities (though Firion is pretty bland)
May 19, 2015: You can go back to Deist and tell the dragoon widow about Ricard. “Ricard’s gone, too, then…” She cried into her hands. “He was a… a noble dragoon. I’m sure he was… pleased that he could… d-die in the name of honor…”
The woman decided to take her son and leave Deist at last.
“There are too many painful memories within these walls,” she said. “Oh! I meant to thank you for saving the wyvern egg and for giving me the chance to see Ricard one last time. That’s why I want you to have this. It was the most treasured possession of the dragoons of Deist: Excalibur. With Ricard gone, you should be the ones to wield this sword.
Our final destination: the Jade Passage, a dungeon cave with crystals all over the walls.
In this dungeon, Great Malboros show their true colors when they attack and inflict like EVERY ailment on you.
A monster in a treasure box is the Blue Dragon! O_O
