I've been listening to these samples literally NON STOP for the past four days. I'm so in love with the style. The beautiful melodies work so well both as original tracks and as glitchy 8-Bit versions.
So I'm running through FFIX again due to it being one of my all time favorites. I never used to be that good at the mini-games (ESPECIALLY the jump rope mini-game, that was HELL).
Yet when it came to the button bashing swordfighting mini-game...for the first time ever...I got 100%. I got the 10,000 gil reward...BUT...me being the klutz that I am...I forgot to head on over to Queen Brahne and claim my Moonstone. GODAMMIT!
I have absolutely no idea how this happened. I sent three of my units out on an errand to a volcano to look for a gold vein and they come back with TEN chocobos and an egg.
Now I don't mind one or two monsters tagging along...but TEN?! Why did this happen? I've now dismissed all but Boco and a Black Chocobo. I'm hoping that the egg will be a Red Chocobo so I can just dismiss any that wish to join in the future.
@jim_dandy: Oh god. PLEASE don't compare me to a child. I've been playing video games for almost seventeen years now. Nonetheless. I know people who've done similar things in the past. A friend of mine, struggled through Final Fantasy IX with all of his characters at around level thirty. Due to him not really liking to level grind. He completed it. I'm not sure if that can be classed as pure skill or just winging it.
I thought I'd start a blog about my recent stupidity when playing Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions.
So I started a New Game and followed the tutorial before playing and then continued to play through the game, aquiring new abilities as I went. After about twenty hours of grinding and struggling though many, many, MANY battles. I reached Level 12. Now I know some of you may be thinking 'WTF?!' but hold on a second. Me being the dimwitted chap that I am. The whole time I'd been purchasing abilities on the JP screen...I had never once thought of moving the D-Pad left or right. Yes. I am a FOOL. A complete cretin. Twenty hours of gameplay and I'd not aquired one reaction/support ability. Thus rendering my units semi useless.
So this is why. I have started a brand new save file and carefully planned out how to build my units. I kept the original New Game unit setup - Ramza and Delita as Squires, four more Squires and two Chemists. I plan on aquiring all reaction/support abilites and having all of them learn Auto Potion before the incredibly ANNOYING battle againt the unit turned traitor known as Argath.
So I'll keep you posted with how my units progress through the story. At this moment in time. My entire team have all progressed to level six and all have a job level of five (Bear in mind that I've only just had rescued Argath from the Corpse Brigade).
