when i beat it just now my party was magus/frog/lucca, so i would do dark matter w/magus and the firefrog double tech w/frog and lucca (forget what it's called, the one that's a giant ass frog that is also on fire)

i prefer ayla / robo / frog for the final battle because their triple tech can take out the left lavos bit in one blow, and cure wave is the best way to keep your party in shape. and also because they are my favourite characters.

I won! This has a terrific ending, too. I think I'll play again, though maybe not until tomorrow.

okay, now that i got the robot, i'm starting to get in the groove a bit here. wish i could carve out some multi-hour playing periods.

lol I started another game last night b/c I can't quit Marle...and b/c I read some walkthroughs and apparently Magus has a bunch of spells that I never got! He only has 3 spells, Lightning 2, Ice 2, Fire 2 (I think), but apparently he can get a bunch more. And Ayla evidently has some great spells but I didn't use her enough to get them (I won with Chrono, Marle and Lucca just blasting the fuck out of Lavos). And I think Robo has more too. So I'm going to focus on Magus, Ayla, and Robo. It's funny replaying it because obviously I'm walking through all the battles that were tough at first, but it's still taking time to do it because of loading time etc.

What's the earliest point I can fight Lavos at? I guess I have to get to the End of Time at least?

wide swing juggalo (Euler), Wednesday, 5 August 2009 06:24 (ten years ago) link

hahaha nope.

Nhex, Wednesday, 5 August 2009 06:27 (ten years ago) link

let me put it this way, don't even consider it until you've finished New Game + at least once

Nhex, Wednesday, 5 August 2009 06:28 (ten years ago) link

(trying to get to/beat Lavos before End of Time)

Nhex, Wednesday, 5 August 2009 06:28 (ten years ago) link

yeah I'm just level 50 now so that's prob. right

wide swing juggalo (Euler), Wednesday, 5 August 2009 06:30 (ten years ago) link

magus has HIDDEN TRIPLE TECHS that u need special items to use... it owns prettty hard

a narwhal done gored my sister nell (cankles), Wednesday, 5 August 2009 07:01 (ten years ago) link

Yeah I think I have the special items now (bunch of gemstones) but I don't even have Dark Matter! Which according to walkthroughs is a pretty fine spell.

wide swing juggalo (Euler), Wednesday, 5 August 2009 07:02 (ten years ago) link

hell yes

Nhex, Wednesday, 5 August 2009 07:06 (ten years ago) link

you have to equip it on one of the party members who can perform the triple tech, and then have all the ppl in ur party i think

a narwhal done gored my sister nell (cankles), Wednesday, 5 August 2009 07:07 (ten years ago) link

yeah but I also have to have the right max spells for each party member to allow triple techs, and that's what I don't have at present.

wide swing juggalo (Euler), Wednesday, 5 August 2009 07:08 (ten years ago) link

aaahhh right-o

Superfluity, Thy Name is Lost Sanctum

Parish criticizing the new sidequests added to the DS version, then goes into a general anti-padding rant. Sounds like they're not worth the trouble, and it's not like the game really needed more content, but it doesn't seem like they usually succeed in these remake additions.

Nhex, Saturday, 8 August 2009 00:54 (ten years ago) link

Huh. I think I skipped the Lost Sanctum on my first playthrough. Maybe I'll try it this time (I'm playing on DS). S/he's right that the game is short enough to make a second playthrough worthwhile. I took about 25 hours on my first playthrough. The Black Omen was a pretty badly designed dungeon I thought, way too much walking through vast boring empty spaces. I guess it showed how cavernous the ship is, but for little payoff. And the combat was dumb by that point too, because I could kill everything in it without magic or healing.

S/he makes a nice point regarding the lengths of contemporary RPGs also. I got burned out on Oblivion, because I have completist tendencies, but after 120+ hours I'd had enough of fetch quest and weak plot (by then I'd long dispensed with the final quest). It was a pity because the assassination quests were actually interesting (relatively speaking) but I just didn't want to be in that universe anymore by then. Plus my 360 started locking up on one of those quests, both the first time and on further reloads from save. So CT's brevity was a virtue I appreciated.

Okay, I'm officially quitting this as I'm just not enjoying it. Glad I gave it a college try but it's just not quite doing it for me.

six years pass...

hacked my SNES mini. Wasn't sure I'd be able to play another top-down RPG after Earthbound but here I am. I'm really gutted I didn't go in the Tent of Terror before zapping myself back 1000 years :-(

I can't stop listening to this too: <- one of the best bits of music in a 16 bit game I can think of. Wish there were more decent orchestrated versions of SNES game soundtracks on Spotify

Badgers (dog latin), Monday, 12 February 2018 10:48 (two years ago) link

eight months pass...

sometimes I wanna tell people about the feels I get off this game and then I realise I'm being a weirdo so I'm saying it here
