Was actually getting used to the FF8 mechanics last autumn, when I was attempting a replay of it. Then exams arrived and I completely lost track and haven't returned to it yet. :(

(The story was ... ok, but the gameplay/combat mechanics were god-awful. Draw Draw Draw Draw Draw AARGH MAKE IT STOP, and then the 20-minute graphic every time you used a summon. *sigh* The music was awesome though.)

As always, FF6 is best FF. (9 is probably second)

I've kind've gotten used to Drawing constantly. Then Invis looks over and goes "do you actually do ANYTHING else in this game?" And I was like... yeah okay... not the best method.

Meh. FIrst hour of the game is drawing 100 of each of the basic spells for each hero. Seriously, I think every game started with:
a) Get Card from the Lightning GF
b) Draw magic until your soul dies in a corner
c) Card everything you can until you get to the awesome battleship landing
d) Pumped up, you decide to refocus and Draw the magic you still miss... And feel your soul screaming in anguish.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Yeah, I never really understood FFVIII's junctioning system. I just spammed GFs most of the time. Which I'm told is the wrong way to play.

As for the 20-minute summon animation... don't forget having to sit through it spamming Square to increase the damage.

And then you entered Lunatic Pandora, squeacked through Fujin and Raijin, and then keep blowing up Rinoa during Adel (not that there's anything wrong with mauling Rinoa...)

Sorry, should have specified - was talking about games in general. :wink:
Some unskippable bits around Mass Effect 2 that annoyed me last night.

In ME3 you can make combos with different powers to make them detonate. Very fun !

Use the back button to go forward. Well that's intuitive. o.O

I decided to completely forgo the cards. I'm still drawing like mad every single fight and I'm only on disc 2 and ~30 hours in. Adding that card game into the mix would likely mean I'd never finish the game.

Was something like that in ME2 as well, or at least one of the powers said it'd detonate other active powers on the target. But when using a power triggers a full global cooldown, shooting them in the face is just that much more effective... :( Not to mention how slow some of the powers travel, so that by the time they reach the enemy, they've usually taken cover again. ._.

Wanted to do a renegade adept playthrough of ME2 before I started ME3, but think I'll just hit ME3 right away.


@Nika: At some point you get a boost ability, that lets you spam square during the summon animation to boost its damage.

Oh, I never PLAYED the card game, except on my 100% totally utterly complete from A to Z run.
The trick is - any enemy that gets card'ed does NOT award XP. Consider that enemy stats scale with your level, and that Tomberry has the *very*, *VEEEEEEEEEEEERY* fun Lvl+ and Lvl- abilities, you can have a team of level 15 chars rocking 100 Ultima's each literally pulverising every last boss.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.
