Since a few people are starting to get the import for Final Fantasy XIII, we may as well start a thread for those who are playing and wish to share their expereince with others that are willing to read it(me). ;D

Just know that spoilers are expected in this thread, as it is a daily update thread. Though gameplay spoilers can be expected here you must still mark all major story plots.

I've just finished what is the current forerunner for Most Boring Area next to the Great Crystal of FFXII... OH I HOPE I've finished Vile Peaks, or I'll be really annoyed.

Fun fact: If you have a character casting buffs for an entire battle, you'll probably die.
Fun fact: If you don't sequence your attacks effectively, you won't break the enemy and you'll probably die.
Fun fact: If you don't switch a character to Healer when they need it, you'll probably die.
Fun fact: If you're just a plain newcomer to the FF series, you'll probably die.

Seriously, I think I lost count of my game overs but I think it's just because it's Japanese. I love the challenge in this game though but I think it is going to be very harsh to those new to the series. Not a good game to start on.

Hate half the people complaining about this game (when the probably don't even own it!) I also hope I'm not going to be the only one posting here. (I know some others are playing it too  :-X)

heh heh nice :)  Me too but im limited with my time so i can only get limited insanity.  Now im in Chapter 7 (6 went so fast omg! but it was such a nice place actually a good green spot instead of yucky junkyards).  And with my last Chrystarium upgrade I depleted all my CP now :(  Im only 1 slot away from haste (I cant get it yet until a level up).  So back to CP building lol just walking through these levels now finally gives me more.  Favorite classes hmm I really like attacker and blaster for the offensive.  And yeah I love healer too lol.

Im glad you to see me I garontee! Fry baby, fry!

Hehe what would the game be without a healer on your side :o

I've just played the opening, yup I finally got my copy ;D ;D ;D
Though with the marathon still going on I probably won't play it that much.

Up to Chapter 13 and definitely going insane grinding. If anyone needs tips once you reach like nearish end Ch.11 (You'll find what I'm talking about easily) for money/cp making there's a REALLY good spot in 2nd to last dungeon there lol. I'm screwing around while doing it (Skype/Marathon namely) and still making prolly 200k-300k cp/gil an hour (optimally it makes like 360k XD).

Weapon upgrades = more insanity...

Final dungeon = Why I'm going insane...

Yea... gotta love having ocd about completing stuff and playing JRPG's!

I've just defeated the Shiva Twins, though don't ask me how. I must have died around 8 times before I finally managed to somehow get that bar full ;D

And with that I'm also starting to get the hang of the battle system :D

Amazing, the final dungeon already?  In all my years of playing Final Fantasy, I normally reach the final dungeon in about a month or two after the game's release.  :o

For the Shiva Twins, I believe you had to guard in order to defeat them as I never got far by just attacking them. That is probably what the tutorial said, but my Japanese is not 100%.

I've got quite far by simply attacking the shiva twins, but I still have no clue what made the bar fill up in the end :-\

Anyway Chapter IV is going way better than Chapter III went. I've already defeated both Dreadnought and Odin in one go. Odin was close though the bar was already full with a good 300 on the timer, but I figured out on the last moment that you had to press square in order to finish the battle ::)

I've gotten the hang of the optima system along with the ups of each class. Now I just need to figure out how that freaking shop works, because IIRC you can also upgrade your weapons there.
