Conversation Between Wolf Kanno and Fynn

  1. Don't worry about getting back to me on this, I'm just doing a KH2 update.

    Finished Herc's world, I always find the Hades fight in this entry to be a bit messy. Too many characters, Hades teleports spams, and the Holy Orb gimmick makes the fight tedious. With that said, Guardian Soul is still one of my fave keyblades.

    Took down Port Royal as well. Of the underutilized Org members, Luxord might be my favorite from this entry. I have a soft spot for gambler types, which is ironic since I don't enjoy gambling, but he's my fave of the leftover members in this game.

    With Port Royal finished, I tackled the Larxene ghost battle, the extra levels certainly helped, especially when I equipped more thunder protection. I can see why she's one of the tougher battles, her gimmick is that she creates clones of herself to confuse and overwhelm you. There is a reaction command to get rid of them, but hell if I ever figured out how to initiate it. Her biggest issues is that she's wickedly fast and she tries to fight from range most of the time, making it hard to take control of the fight. I kind of feel I won this one still based on luck than skill.

    I also tackled Laxeus and he's like the complete opposite of Larxene. His gimmick sounds really intimidating until you learn a few tricks. Basically Laxeus does his best DBZ impression and powers himself up so his attacks do ridiculous damage, he can easily be strong enough to one shot you halfway through the fight. If you can successfully block one specific attack of his, you can activate a reaction command to knock him out of his souped up state but the window is really narrow and he doesn't really like using it when he's low on health. With his battle aura he can also just no sell most damage. The trick is abusing Reflect. It's the only spell that can work through his aura field and frankly, it tears through his health like nobody's business. In fact, if it wasn't for that silly "only finishing blows can kill a boss nonsense" I probably would have beaten him two attempts earlier than I did.

    Also, I'm not sure if it's just poor luck or what, but Nobodies really don't like dropping their items. I'm at the point where most of my remaining recipes require items from only those enemies.
  2. It's all good man, I understand. Though you indulging in Catholic ceremony made me think of this:

    Gerad's time frame is one of the shorter ones, so you honestly have far more time than you think unless you seriously go after the Seven Heroes. Your advisors will often tell you about stuff going on, but you should probably still just explore and see what's going on in your kingdom. It's good to check back on areas you've liberated as they sometimes open up new quests for you.

    My issue with writing at the moment is that I'm not wanting to do anything, and thus I don't. I need to at least force myself to write for an hour instead of wasting that time thinking that's what I should do. I have things I want to do this year like enter writing contests and submitting my ideas to Marvel.
  3. Sorry for taking so long. We’re having a Christening on Sunday, so we’re kinda extra busy with preparations.

    Re: Romancing SaGa - it I answered right away, I’d say I didn’t, even though the ppportunity has come up twice, but once I just said know while the other I didn’t have the funds. But currently, it’s being built. I’m also done with Gerard and my current successor is a mercenary called Orion. Since I got friendly with the Dragon Lair brawlers, I always have one in my party now. Also, now that I’m done with the mind in Ludon, the game has opened up significantly and I don’t really know which way to go next.

    Re: KH - I remember actually digging the sub skill mechanic, as it made each Keyblade really feel unique and suit a different purpose. But then I guess that also means you’re more likely to just stick to favorites because it’s mlre comfortable. You get some, you lose some.

    Re: writing - discipline is good as long as you don’t kick yourself in the face for it. I haven’t written much this week, but then I’ve had the aforementioned preparations and I’m also looking for extra work, so it’s teally important to let yourself write a little less sometimes too
  4. I'm on the second half of KH2, just finished Mulan and Beauty and the Beast. Xaldin is still a real nasty fight, but I did beat him on a first attempt with a little help from Mickey. Working on Hercules right now. Despite my general apathy of the Spira entries, I do find the portrayal of the characters in KH to be charming.

    I still haven't beaten anyone besides Zexion for the Absent Silhouette. Larxene was a tad too tough, and by the time I reached a point I felt I could win, the second half kicked in and I'll have to finish Pirates world to get access to her again. I did challenge Laxeus and he was interesting. Came close to beating him too but got careless and decided I wanted to thrash Larxene first. I have all but two of the puzzles completed, but I've yet to complete a Mushroom XIII task to Jiminy's high expectations.

    I've decided that the reason I never remember the keyblades as well in this one is because this game introduced the whole sub ability gimmick, and thus statistically, the keyblades are all very similar outside fo magic versus physical and it ultimately comes down to the skill attached to the weapon. Hence, I tend to stick to two or three keyblades and almost never use any other. I also forgot how much of a complete chore leveling the Forms are in this game. Also, I really love the Tron world, I always forget how much until I get there. That movie was a staple of my childhood.

    With all that said, I'm kind of annoyed at myself because I'm really slacking on my writing. In fact, I don';t really have anything I want to work on at the moment, but I also feel like that might be a good thing since I'll have more flexibility when I force myself to start up. I need to start getting more disciplined I feel.
  5. It's based on the element in question, if you double check, you'll notice the stat differs depending on which elemental school you're talking about. Also, like the first Romancing SaGa, you can't have a character equipped with opposing elemental spells.

    To be fair, Logic doesn't really factor in as much as the game makes you think it does. Largely because the best spells tend to be buff/debuff magic. Have you acquired the Garden/Tree yet?
  6. Yeah, I’ve noticed. The reason I let Therese die is actually exactly that - I couldn’t deal enough damage to the gel blob. Also, my magic facility thing is now operational and now everyone has magic. btw, what is this logic thing? Because it seems to be backwards. Lady says the higher the logic, the lower your spell power, but my court Mage has the highest logic, with Gerard being in second place - so that would mean the actual spellcastets are the worst suited for the job
  7. That's good that you have a mage in your party. You'll meed one for the Dragon Lair scenario. Rule of thumb, slime/blob looking enemies are really weak to magic and completely no-sell fisticuff attacks that are not ki based.
  8. Well, things have changed a little bit. After Leo’s death I recruited another ranger, and now Therese has just died and I replaced her with Emerald the Mage. So I have Gerard, Heavy Infantry, Kight Infantry, Ranger and Court Mage.
  9. Who is in your party class wise?
  10. I’d still argue it’d be harder for me to interpret them like that, with one being very jazzy and one very impressionistic, but that’s just me. I still think the music here is great.

    I managed to kill Kzinssie and now Gerard has his blinged out armor. Found the Cat and best an octopus in the canal, so the thieves guild will now help me,and now I’ve reached this town where they’re talking about some dudes from a Dragon’s Lair or something and I’m gonna investigate that
