Is the DLC Weapon worth it? 80MP

#1 Posted by ShinjiEx (624 posts) -

I could of sworn it was going to be free to those who bought new on the 360 as an exclusive?
 
P.S. 80MP I think is $1?

Personally, I don't think it is worth it. Yeah, it's a dollar, but the weapon itself isn't all that great. It's your call, though.

Pretty sure it was a Gamestop preorder bonus, also I think it's just a weapon skin not an actual weapon, but not sure.

Nah I think GameStop had some time exclusive outfit for Serah via pre-order if I recall?

Ah, then yeah fuck that. The only thing so far worth money as far as I'm concerned is the amazing Ezio outfit.

Is it the Genji Bow? Then yes.

Ah, then yeah fuck that. The only thing so far worth money as far as I'm concerned is the amazing Ezio outfit.

Gamestop had two bonuses; one is the Genji Bow, and the other is a costume for Serah. The Genji Bow is an actual weapon and not just a reskin. It has stats that are superior to at least the bows you come across earlier in the game and provides a bonus to ATB gauge charge time. But you don't actually get access to it until your firist visit to Chocolina, where you can "buy" it for zero gil.

That could be alright for the start of the game, I guess. Because I didn't start getting good passive abilities on weapons until about midway through the game. Actually I finished it all with Serah using some bow I got very early on because it had an ATB charge bonus. Most weapons didn't seem super useful because they eventually start requiring monster parts to create and the game wasn't hard enough to justify me caring about upgrading. I didn't even start getting accessory bonuses from the crystarium until near the end of the game.

Won't you need to buy the 500MP (that is if you have no points AT ALL) so you can spend the 80MP?

If so, it's probably not worth it. I don't own the game, but even if 80MP is one dollar, you won't be spending one dollar.

I want the rumored Lightning as a party member DLC, hopefully she'll replace the monsters, I wish the monsters just leveled with CP too, the item thing is kind've annoying.

It's a trap, don't it.

If I read the internets correctly Lightning does in fact replace a monster, but she herself acts as a monster and is a Commando specifically. So not much is changing really.

I wouldn't buy it, on principle.

Vote with your dollar and say no with this bullshit.

I figured that this would be the case. I'm not sure I'll download her, given that I have yet to find much need for a third potential commando in my party anyway.

yeah, to be honest I RARELY use my Commando outside of boss battles anyway. I think you have to fight her in the arena though, so I would actually pay for that if the fight was fun.

Well your choices are, indie game, in-game weapon, or some random clothing article for your 360 avatar.

Aww boo... and I was looking forward to her crystarium ._.

After messing up Noels and Serahs nodes I wanted to do it right with Lightning :D

I just bought the lightning dlc. And it is HARD. I seriously need to do some more leveling.

I won't spoil too much, but its a fun fight, a little bit of dialogue, and doesn't seem like it was already on the disk which is good.

Also Lightning is a Ravager and the other dude is a Commando so she will be useful!

#26 Posted by ZenaxPure (2569 posts) -
@Daveydave: Ravager huh? That is weird. Also is this out in English speaking places yet or are you playing it on the Japanese copy of the game? I'd check but I just bought 60,000 casino coins and taped down my L1 again, maybe I will get the trophy tonight! :P
#27 Posted by Daveydave (131 posts) -

Pretty sure its ravager. I had to quit as the final part was too hard. And I am in the UK and its there in the downloadable content on the main menu :)

So I guess I can't get her early on then huh? That kinda blows. Considering I'm paying for it I'd like to have access to her right off the bat.

Yeah I kinda messed up mine too, did a whole bunch of stuff then went to my FF13 save when I was having trouble to see my paradigms over there, and was like I did this all wrong.

Yeah but don't worry, even without the nodes bonus you get about 900 attack with Noel and 930 magic with Serah when maxed out. And you'll be able to defeat all bosses and get the 5-star ratings for the trophy, so you'll be fine :)
