Dilemma of the entertainments

Stop reading silly vampire romance novels immediately. You haven't made nearly enough progress on FFX-2 or Child of Light. You won't finish them by the end of the year at this rate, and then you'll be behind on your gaming goal for 2015.

...but if I read 7 more books by Friday I'll meet my reading goal for 2015 on Goodreads...

Did you accidentally skip an extended cutscene of the airship?

I'm a sadist. I derive pleasure from the suffering of others.

How did you get the gun mage dressphere without talking to Tobli?

Once again, I really must protest the guide you're using. It's dangerous to go alone, TAKE THIS.

[personal profile] lenity 2015-12-31 04:59 am (UTC)(link)
...I think you're a bit too invested in 100%ing this. Which is interesting, because it's impossible to do on your first playthrough.

[personal profile] lenity 2015-12-31 05:03 am (UTC)(link)
No, I'm pretty sure I said impossible!okay i didn't but i did say this. which was misleading and unclear. my bad. The maximum percentage you can get on your first playthrough is, like. 96%. You need both the scenes you get from donating the sphere to the Youth League in one playthrough, and then New Yevon on an NG+.

I'm going to assume the guide is wrong and I'm right. :D

Anyway, all 100% nets you is an extra scene that isn't even in the pretty shiny CG. Like, 60 extra seconds of stuff. And it's attached to my Not Favourite Ending. So you're working yourself up about nothing! Maybe try to play for the pretty magical girl dress-up rather than the arbitrary completionist numbers?

COMM.

SPHERES.

Trust me, you'll be so glad you didn't bother. I'm pretty sure Act 4 is like, 80% watching comm spheres. Check any guide and it'll show you exactly what you're skipping.

GOOD ENDING KICKS BEST ENDING'S BUTT

I'm not being contrary. I really do prefer it as an end to the overall narrative and a resolution to Yuna's story.

Just say this

[personal profile] slayerofgod 2016-01-08 03:37 pm (UTC)(link)
That's pretty much what it is, yeah.

Act IV is definitely the pain in the ass part for 100%. All commspheres, all the time. Blech.

The sad thing is some of the resolutions along the way to 100% I really like, like Wakka's or the Guados. Most of it though is meh.
