Sad thing is that was a couple years ago around the time when X's remastered editions came out.
So if I ever get back into the game again I'd have to start all over because I forgot what the fuck happened.

I managed to beat Anima with no aeon last time I played X. The real trick of that fight is her instant death move which you have no protection against at this point. But she actually takes a lot of damage so it doesn't take too long to kill her. Granted, I was well-prepared
for the fight, I'm not trying to pretend I'm some badass gamer since I'm not. If you look at some of the absolutely insane challenges people do with FFX, I could never do that.
Also I never understood why they were mad about the machina in the temple. Lulu said flat-out earlier that Yevon decides which machina is permitte d and which is not. Wakka follows up by saying the machina the Al Bhed and Crusaders used against Sin is the forbidden kind.
So by all means criticize Yevon using cannon bots and kickboxing robots and rifles and flamethrowers but elevators or whatever? Who cares.

If they say no Machina, there should be no exceptions.
Plus, it still sounds hypocritical to say some is alright so that you can use it for yourself.
That and there's a lot of machina in the Bevelle temple. Seeing so much proof of the flagrant hypocrisy is utterly demoralizing for Wakka.
It makes sense that Bevelle would have so much machina too. Back in the day their tech was so advanced that they were winning a war against a magic using civilization with access to Aeons. Heck, it turns out they even had a machina superweapon that could rival Sin in power! Though they at least weren't stupid enough to actually activate it.

Xbox Germany posted to Facebook and then deleted an announcement for 7R release on the Xbox One day and date with the PS4 version despite Sony and Square Enix saying it will be first on the PS4.

I have it on good authority that the Machina used against Sin at the operation was sanctioned by Yevon!
Lord Seymour signed the papers
I hope the Added Cut Materia isn't too useful because my characters passed out literally an inch away from it and I'm too salty to go back.
Gives you a free attack when you use the linked spell. So it's useful, but not SUPER useful.
Sounds like a must have for a Magic Knight though.
Honestly I have no idea how I beat that game with my only game overs being from running headlong into the wandering Weapon superbosses a guy at work has spent days trying to beat Sephiroth.
Sephiroth actually powers up depending on how well you perform in the final dungeon. I think he caps off at like five times the HP.

Pretend you saw nothing.
One of the more interesting moments of FFX. I've never understood what the point of it is.
Wakka: "But, using machina... That's bad, isn't it?"
Seymour: "Pretend you didn't see them."
Wakka: "Beg your pardon, but that's not something a maester should say!"
Seymour: "Then pretend I didn't say it."
Tidus' narration: "From the first time I laid eyes on him, I never did like Seymour...But you know, some of the things he said that day... They made a lot of sense to me."
I've never understood what Tidus admires about it or if there's any like symbolism here. It's obvious this is about more than just ignoring machina.
This is the part that seems to make sense to Tidus.

"Pretend I didn't say it" is meant to be an early hint that the church of Yevon is full of bullshit I think, showing that they're perfectly happy to ignore their own rules if it suits them
It's also an early hint that Seymour himself isn't trustworthy, if the ominous music didn't cue you in already.
Seymour's theme is just "I AM A BAD GUY!"
Seymour's Ambition is one of my favourite battle themes just for how well it nailed the mood of the moment.
I think Tidus approved of Seymour's (apparent) willingness to ignore teachings and tradition for the greater good.
Seymour is a very broken man who tried to use Sin in order "end" Spira's suffering.
Thanks for the replies everyone. Interesting stuff.
The remastered version is the only new song I think is better than the old.
I like the read of Seymour as the logical conclusion of Yevon. Mika says only the power of death truly commands in Spira and Yunalesca talks about how only lies make life worth living. Seymour just took all this and said yep so why are we even bothering to live at all.
Mika and Yunalesca clearly disagree with him but I reckon he'd just say they are both cowards who didn't want to go where their ideology naturally led.
Makes me wonder why Seymour bothered with his convoluted plan to become Sin when Vegnagun was just sitting in the basement. Maybe he didnít know about it.
The Doylist explanation is that Vegnagun hadn't been thought of yet.
The Watsonian explanation is that, being a recently promoted Maester, he hadn't yet been made privy to the existence of Vegnagun. It didn't help that Maester Kinoc didn't fully trust Seymour because of Seymour's patricide.

Seymour I think is very genuine in his intent, He is avoiding doing the easy option since He already has a Final Aeon. He like Yuna WANTS to save Spira in a permanent way. He is her foil afterall
Most villains would be reveling in the death caused by the Monster wanting to be like it...
Seymour doesn't come to his If everybody in Spira was Undead Sin couldn't kill them plan until after He himself becomes unsent...
and well Seeing that being unsent doesn't seem to kill your day job or sex life 'See Yunalesca and Auron... wait that came out wrong'
Seymour honestly doesn't seem THAT deranged when you think about it.
He never gets the idea of turning everyone Unsent.
He just wants everyone dead.

Tidus: You're totally nuts!
While Seymour's the Evil Counterpart to Yuna, he's also a bit of a contrast to Tidus. For all that Tidus (rightly) resents Jecht, he still loves his father at the end of the day and when forced to kill him, was heartbroken. Seymour otoh also (rightly) resented Jyscal, but unlike Tidus genuinely hated his father enough to murder him with no remorse.
I don't think Mika has a 'but death isn't really an answer' attitude given that he himself is dead
