I think I'd just reached the moon when I last wrote anything about FF4...
Now, I've beaten the Giant of Babel and cleared Bahamut's Cave. And naturally taken care of every sidequest I could think of that I could complete with little to no difficulty (that obviously doesn't include the Rainbow Pudding or the Onion gear)
I'm actually rather surprised I managed to deal with Bahamut. I'd run out of MP two Behemoths ago, and had to resort to Ethers to get through the last one. Not that MP would've done me much good at the Bahamut battle, he had Reflect up and had a Reflect-counter to magic attacks. Including Dispel. Managed to kill both Cecil and Rydia with my own attacks before I discovered those nice little facts. >.> (how? Well, Rydia went first and activated the first Reflect (didn't notice it was on counter). After which Rosa's queued spells were cast, and killed Cecil. Next time, I figured I'd just Dispel it first...proceeded to do just that, Dispel activated the counter-Reflect, and Rydia's second Flare was reflected back at herself. Nice) And even though I Hasted right at the start of the battle, he got down to 1 in the countdown before I managed to take him down. That one got rather close...
Not sure what I'm going to do next, maybe train at Bahamut's Cave a bit more (level 64-70). Or head forward in the story and train on the way. It's not likely my MP would last until a save point the first time I venture deep into the moon, anyway.
(I can sense my end-of-game reluctance to play creeping up on me. Boo. Must conquer this)
Didn't do any playing yesterday, since I remembered that I had one ebook queued up to read, so I did just that. It was Old Man's War by John Scalzi. You know, the current free ebook by Tor. Just letting you know of the offer, in case you're interested and didn't know about it, I think I forgot to advertise it when I signed up myself. The first free one was Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. This whole thing is a limited time offer (I think to advertise their ebook service?), so sign up quickly.
Come to think of it, the next ebook should be sent on the 29th...
It must be because I'm nearing the end in FF4, but I keep wanting to continue FFT finally. Might not be such a bad idea, but I should put more weight in beating the five games (FF1 PSP, FF4 DS, FF8, FF12RW, FFTA) where I'm at the final dungeon/mission or very close to it... how long has it been since I've touched FF8, one and a half years or thereabouts? Already? D:
