This is an episode in featured in pink. A cute girl with a moogle hat. I wish I had a hat like hers.

I couldn’t believe this advertisement. It’s perfect! The real life mana potion is advertised as follows: “You know what this stuff is. With 160mg of caffeine and a good dose of vitamins, Each 50mL Mana Potion will add +160 to your MP and keep you going through epic battles. This 6-pack means you can either mana up your whole party or party up, um, your whole mana? 5-8 hours of smooth energy with a citrus taste and a 24-hour cool-down.”

I couldn’t describe the effects of a real life mana potion myself. Also featured on the sites web page are health potions as well. These are the most amazing drinks I have ever seen for a geek. I really want some.

blue dragonThis stupid pixelated dragon has become the bane of my entire existence. It comes from the Lunar Subterane in Final Fantasy Four… as far as I can tell, the last dungeon to go through. When there is only one of them it’s a none problem. My characters keep attacking it… and eventually it dies. However, they have an extremely annoying tendency to pop up as a pair… and that spells death, destruction, and chaos for my party. It’s worse than having a monster cast Death Lvl 4 back in Final Fantasy 7.

Death to the Blue Dragons! Death to Ice! Death to Winter!

Final Fantasy 12 is a fun game. It really is. Maybe  not one of the best Final Fantasies… I don’t think it’s nearly as good as either seven or ten, but it didn’t get the same hype either. It’s a good game. But it can be damned obnoxious too.

balthier You’d think that having a sky pirate on your team would be enough to insure the fact that good treasure is bound to come your way. But you’d be thinking wrong.

About five or six hours into the game if you’ve been rushing you get to a tomb of a dead king. Inside the tomb is a nasty demon wall that is designed to crush you to pieces. You are not really suppossed to win this battle, but to scream and run away.

However, for those people that are dedicated enough to the cause of treasure there is a chance to defeat the wall. I spent six hours of my time completely dedicated to leveling up my party so that when the time came I would be prepared to crush the Demon Wall to oblivion and take it’s treasure.

We clashed in a battle of flashing lights that would be bound to cause an eplileptic seizure. Finally the Demon Wall fell into bits of pieces and crumbled to dust. Next step, treasure. Simple!

… or not.

The treasure wasn’t there. So… of to the internet to figure out why. This is what I read:

If you don’t see a chest here, press start, return to the title screen and try
again.  If you DO see a chest, open it.  You have a 45% chance of receiving
Gil from the chest.  If you get Gil, press start, return to the title screen
and try again.  If it’s not Gil, you have a 50% chance of receiving a Holy
Mote.  The Holy Mote is completely useless.  If you get it, press start,
return to the title screen and try again.

Oh well! So much for being easy!
