Final Fantasy XIII-2 Part Six: Final Journey/Final Thoughts and Trivia

I guess that’s just part of loving people: You have to give things up. Sometimes, you even have to give them up.”

-Lauren Oliver, Delirium #1

July 1, 2015: Academia, 500 AF. Serah and Noel confront Caius for the final time.

Caius: “I will fulfill my promise. Your suffering will end.”

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Part Five

July 25, 2013: Radical Dreamers
Serah was trapped in a dream of the life she wanted, but she rejected the false hope that the shadow Lightning offered. A mysterious female voice offered Serah guidance, and guess who it was? Vanille. She and Fang were able to help Serah because they were all dreaming at the same time.
Vanille told Serah that Noel was off somewhere having a dream of his own. Fang used her weapon to cut open a spacetime distortion that Serah used to leave New Bodhum 00X AF.
The atmosphere of A Dying World, 700 AF, is very lonely and sad.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Part Four: The Last Hunter

June 23, 2013: The Impersistence of Memory
Noel tried to argue why Caius couldn’t be behind the AI going haywire. He remembered that Caius was a Guardian of the seeress, but couldn’t remember his other reason.
I’m tired of the Tower and its dumb rotating rooms.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Part Three: Legends of Tomorrow

June 14, 2013: Coliseum ??? AF
Snow couldn’t come with us because the gate wasn’t “meant” for him. Hmph.
He still has his l’Cie brand.

Snow’s look in Final Fantasy XIII-2

The Arbiter of Time looks creeepy.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Part Two: Innocent Sins

May 18, 2013: As the trio tries to explore the Yaschas Massif, another Altas-esque creature attacks! These creatures must be directly linked to the paradoxes.
It’s a brutal boss fight. It inflicts Wound and constantly casts Deshellga, Deprotectga, and area-of-effect spells, making the Sentinel role basically useless. So annoying.
In the end, a boomerang banishes the beast with an electromagnetic pulse attack. There’s only one Final Fantasy XIII character that uses a boomerang: Hope.

Hope

You don’t even get much for “beating” the invader.

Final Fantasy Record Keeper Tournament of Champions II

The Tournament of Champions is a fun way of determining which character has the highest stats. ToC II tackles the characters added in Final Fantasy Record Keeper‘s third year.
This is not supposed to be an absolute guide. You can use whatever characters you want. The characters that you will use will be determined in part by which stages you want to beat and who you get pieces of Soul Break equipment for.
Please note that the characters’ stats are affected by equipment of various quality. Their stats are presented without Record Synergy, which improves the stats of characters from the same game as the stage you are playing.
The list is divided up into characters that specialize in Physical and Magical attacks. When the character/s with the highest stats are tabulated, the best Physical and Magical characters face off in the final round.
Each stat is assigned a point value. The points are determined by how high the stat is compared to other characters, if there are multiple characters in a category. Whoever has the highest points advances to the next round. If characters have the same number in a stat, characters in that category get fewer points overall.
Stats and character levels are taken from the last few weeks.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Final Stats, Thoughts, and Trivia

IT’S OOOVER (flails)

That was perhaps the most bittersweet ending of the Shin Megami Tensei games I’ve played. It reversed my opinion on all of the game’s BS… even Mem Aleph.

I’m tempted to rate Strange Journey a little above Shin Megami Tensei IV, which I liked, but don’t found very memorable, and equal to Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne.

Some fans nicknamed Jimenez “Mexican Junpei”. 😛 Continue reading Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Final Stats, Thoughts, and Trivia

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Part 11: Disappear

April 24, 2013: Very Odds and Ends
Some weak demons can lead to unique fusions.
Huh, we’ve made most of the armor in this game.
Vile Samael says he has many names.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Part 10

April 14, 2013: Grindy-grind. Yawn.
Even the doors in Horologium open with a brutal heaviness.
Horologium? Sounds like someone has a Horo-loogie-um.
