Playing the original Final Fantasy on the Vita.
At the final dungeon & in comes a classic JRPG difficulty curve.
Not only do you have to run through 9 floors that will test random things (count the number of bats standing still, walk in a pattern, etc) you also get timed, even during battle and add to that an insane encounter rate (2-3 steps).
Did I mention you have to sacrifice abilities just to get time (no flee, items, heal magic, etc...) ?!

Can not be asked to beat this crappy game. Thank god random encounters are no more.

@Fight_Teza_Fight I don't remember the time limit of course the last time I played the first Final Fantasy and beat it was on the NES years ago. I started it on GBA but my son erased my file on that version when he was young before I could finish it.

@Tasuki I'm playing the PS1 port on vita. I believe there are some differences between the games so I'm not sure.
You have to sacrifice abilities to the 'light' to gain time. Once it runs out your HP starts to slowly drain, the enemies get stronger (I think) and depending on the floor there may be some additional screen effects. It's insane. Only managed to get to the 5th floor using near enough 99 high potions, before I succumbed to defeat.

Got to the final dungeon within 15 hours, but I don't really fancy spending a third of my gametime grinding for the last dungeon. YouTube it is .

@KratosMD I'll get to them one day. 99% of the game is a walk in the park- but that last dungeon. I can't think of anything like it...

@Fight_Teza_Fight a necessary evil of the past, but even more horrendous modern day.

I love lost odyssey, great game. But at certain points the random battles come every 4-5 steps and it takes an hour in a section you would run past in a minute at most. Same with Final Fantasy 10 when looking for key boxes end game, it's why I decided against going for the latter trophies. I saw a comment about world of final fantasy having random battles and decided there and then to leave it off my wanted games list. Random battles when used sparingly are OK, when they are in a section when you are looking for something in an area or against a time limit are infuriating!

@Tasuki I don't think so (I'm playing the PSP version). After restoring all the crystals, a secret door opens up at the Chaos Shrine that takes you to the final dungeon-The Labrinth of Time, at the end of which awaits Chaos.

After that the credits roll. According to the GBA guide I've been following anyway.

@Fight_Teza_Fight Ah ok yeah as I said its been awhile since I played FF, I honestly don't remember that part. I think I will have to dust of my GBA and do a play through of FF.

Got 50 points from catching 10 fishes. 950 points to go, anyone know when the active timed quest ends?

WanderingBullet

Can you only get the Papa Bird and Baby Bowl recipe post game? I've tried a few times by reloading and resting at the hotel but she doesn't spawn.

@WanderingBullet i caught 20 fishes, got 50 points then turned the game off for a break, now no matter how many i catch i don't get any more points, so i'm waiting for it to end now

@WanderingBullet @FullbringIchigo you can upload your quest time every hour and then it will take some time to update the results. Anyway you can't get more than 50QP per hour (+the QP you get for your position in the chart that hour/day/week) ...it's terribly stingy!
I hope the next timed quest is less frustrating ...

@Feena same but every time i try to upload i get a error message so i can't

I FINALLY got Knights of The Round without abusing the airship glitch on the island that it's located on in Final Fantasy VII!

@Reanfan7 congrats! now enjoy THAT cutscene @FullbringIchigo the worst thing is that if you exit the game without uploading and saving it doesn't count at all...I am just aiming at 500 QP to get the 999 AP at this point, 1000 for the Afrosword ma bye beyond my level of commitment.

WanderingBullet

I got the Afrosword and also bought 50 Oracle Coins. Like Feena said, I hope Round 1's second quest is less frustrating and tedious as I plan on getting the 999 AP and maybe the Vexxos.

WanderingBullet

Well, I'm glad I grinded for the Afrosword and the Coins during the previous fishing quest only because it seems like the current hunt quests will only reset only if you have completed all four of them and not on an hourly basis. I'm still only at Chapt 8, which means I can only do the first three hunts once.

@WanderingBullet i did the first hunt but couldn't find the second one even though i looked over the entire area it said it was in

i'm not having much luck with these things

Are there any optional costumes that can be unlocked through sidequests in Lightning Returns? I know there are a bunch that can be unlocked by progressing through the story, but I wanna make sure I don't miss anything.

wow I am impressed! How did you do it? In case threes another fishing quest in the future.

The second is way more enjoyable...driving here and there listening to classic FF music and slaying monsters! But yeah there is a nasty fourth monster you have to slay in order for the quests to restart.

@FullbringIchigo that took me a while too ...the monsters are ON the rock arcs. I mean on top of them.
