I suppose I read enough fantasy novels that I'm just used to the storytelling style, I honestly enjoy it a lot more than ' I can't believe it's been 500 years since the war of the Magi'

FFXIII had issues, mostly the giant corridor, but I sincerely loved the storytelling style, and I missed it in the sequels.

I've watched all of them as they appeared. I even commented on one. They are good discussion videos and I really enjoy them, although he tends to repeat himself a lot, like five or six times in one of the videos. But he does point that out himself, so

There are a few really good reviews on that channel too. The Chrono Trigger one made me tear up xD

Replaying this. Doing a 'lazy pacifist' run, ie, avoid all combat where possible, but finish the fights you start if caught. Just hit Pulse, where I'm expecting to run into problems.

Wow, the storytelling in this game is phenomenal.

I feel like I'm doing this wrong, because I didn't expect to get this far. My two previous attempts at this were stopped by Aster Protoflorian and Barthandelus, but I've now got to the Dahaka bossfight.

Kinda feel bad for it, he's just minding his own business being a giant skyworm and then we broke into his house, unleashed the Menhirrim on him, then killed him for no apparent reason.

Hecatoncheir was just as annoying as I remember. I had to dodge the Boxed Phalanxes after finding them unbeatable and the Ambling Bellows in the tower nearly stopped me cold.

Still Dahaka. I don't think he's unbeatable, but so far I haven't been able to hurt him enough before the Doom timer counts down. I used to be able to Summon to get extra time, but it didn't work the last time I tried. I predict problems with Barthandelus.

Snow/Vanille/Hope. I need a sentinel and two strong medics to keep up with his damage, and a Saboteur/Synergist Combo. Also Tri-Disaster to stagger him quickly. Out of Fortisols and Aegisols. Where this selection falls is in pure damage output. Could possibly use Fang instead as Sentinel and raise the stagger gauge with Relentless Assault, but that didn't work as well when I tried it.

It's interesting how integrated the battle system is with the characters. It's very well thought out.

Sazh is ' Increase damage' Synergist, Hope is 'Protect self'

Vanille is 'increase damage' Saboteur, Fang is 'prevent from fighting'

Your sentinels are Snow and Fang, characters very focused on protecting other characters. Commandos are your frontline fighters characters.

Battles can go very differently with different lineups, Vetala is goes from very difficult to super easy once Vanille is in the party because she has Poison, and you can just watch it slowly die behind its barrier.

I know you know all this, but it's something that comes up when playing again. Haven't done a complete playthrough in quite a while.

Rejected garb designs for Lightning Returns. I do not know the original source.
