    Default Replaying this

    Those who talk to me on Facebook will see I have been replaying this!

    I'm currently playing it on the PS Vita and I must say, on that tiny screen it looks and plays gloriously! I'm really enjoying it and have clocked 8 hours play time so far. I just completed the Timber Owls mission, and the gang are about to take to the Dollet Comms tower to see what's going on!

    Pheesh (Squall) has just met up with Fury (Rinoa) again after the dance, and even got to meet Galuf (Angelo). The team is filling up now, we're just missing everyone's favourite out of place shotgun sniper.

    I've also been naming my GF's after Eyes on members!!

    Shiva - Jinx
    Quezacotl - Shauna
    Ifrit - Psychotic
    Siren - Freya
    Diabolos - Skyblade


    I've been trying to run this playthrough with as minimal summoning as possible. So far, I've used Jinx twice in the fire cavern, and Shauna once against XATM in Dollet.

    I also set myself the challenge of running the Fire Cavern in 10 minutes. Smashed it!

    Also smashed the Diabolos battle just after obtaining the lamp! This game is sooooooo easy to break. I haven't hit a game over yet. Really enjoying it!

    I hope I destroyed that XATM.

    I replayed this and cheated like a mothersmurfer using my emulator.It was so fun!!!!

    Then I decided to protest outside Square Enix HQ and demand a FF VIII-2 or I will rant and whine on social media like a boss!

    I replayed this a couple of months ago. I got all my characters and GFs to level 100, and got every card

    Definitely my 'ultimate' file of FFVIII.

    I've always loved this game and it is my second favourite FF, beaten only by VII, but it's a hugely close call.

    I know I don't post here too often, but I would love to be one of your GFS

    I'm actually almost done with VII in my marathon and I honestly can't wait to be done with it and get on with this game! For all it's failings, I'm pretty sure this game actually has a consistent level of narrative throughout (as opposed to VII where disc 1 is really good and disc 2 is pretty bad, and then disc 3 is just the final dungeon), but that might just be the nostalgia talking. We'll see!

    I do remember junction being one of the most fun system's I've ever encountered in a game, so I'm really looking forward to that!

    Good luck with this, NF!

    It is ridiculously broken. I actually really enjoy breaking it though. I love being all-powerful!

    Once you've got Siren's L-Mag-RF. you just buy 10 tents and refine them into 100 curagas. Stick it on Squall's HP and that's pretty much game over.

    The game doesn't help itself though. I mean you can refine offensive -aga spells after the 4th boss in the game. What was the point of including -ara spells? xD You can just skip over them entirely.

    That's exactly what I did!

    Then throw in the card mod ability and you can pretty much go ham.

    When I played FFVIII, I spent 10 hours gamtime at the start drawing magic and playing triple triad.

    So many wasted hours getting 300 tornado spells for +40 to their attack stats at level 10

    I like to:

    Get the Quistis Card from Balamb Garden
    Learn Card, then Card Mod
    Refine the Quistis Card into 3 Samantha Souls
    Get Diablos and learn Time Mag-RF
    Refine the Samantha Souls into 180 Triples
    Junction to Strength, dividing up as you like

    Along with Curaga junctioned to HP from refining Tents, and Ifrit's Strength +20/40/60% the game is utterly broken before you go to Timber if you're happy to battle for AP in the Training Centre/out on the World Map.

    Just in case it's not broken enough, be sure to get the Laguna TT card along the way and as your TT cards won't be useful after the last dungeon, item refine them into 100 Hero Potions and spend the entire final dungeon invulnerable. Bonus points for getting yourself to low HP first so that you have endless limit breaks.
    Bow before the mighty Javoo!

    No update for a while. I reckon she's given up on account of the ludicrously high difficulty.

    And to think I got stuck on the game in my first playthrough. Could not beat Adel for the life of me.
