Yeah even with the hyper-speed mode in the newer releases, digging for Chocographs is a pain.

The lagoon is frustrating, because I rarely find anything good there, and with the short amount of time, I never find enough before time is up.

It's especially bad when you're right on top of it, but can find it and spend the entire 30 seconds just missing it.

[up] That is THE worst. You're unable to find that pinprick pixel that you need to hit and your entire time is wasted and you just KNOW it was the Chocograph!

Double post:

Decided to hit the Treno Auction house and get some Dark Matter.

But there are also the unique items (I picked up a Mini Cid already). I'd like to just skip to the Dark Matter, but I know there are other things that might not come up again. If anyone remembers what I should get on the first try, it'd be super helpful.

Some more stuff from the new VIIR Ultimania:

  • Rude is actually the most powerful member of the Turks and was holding back during his fights with Cloud
  • Actually confirmed that the 3 whispers you fight during the Whisper Harbinger battle are representations of Kadaj, Luz, and Yazoo. If you you’re in control of Tifa during the fight, one of them actually gets a unique moveset mean to emulate Loz’s moves during his fight with Tifa in Advent Children.
  • The Whisper Harbinger was originally designed to be about Seven times bigger than it appeared to be in the final game
  • Rufus was apparently had a very lonely childhood hand his only “friend” was Dark Nation
  • Some further teasing that Jessie got revived

I can't be the only one that feels that VIIIR Rufus feels a bit like if Zenos was part of a corporation rather than than an empire.

Rude being the strongest makes sense though I would have to wonder why he holds back

Before Crisis they do play him like the Turk's Trump card to the point where if Rude can't deal with it... Seph is the next option up

frankly i'm surprised they didn't reveal Rude had Mako Eyes which would explain him always wearing sunglasses but then again having a Real badass normal whose on par with even the best of SOLDIER is nice it prevents a irrelevance club like DB suffers from

So basically, he should work for Reed, and together they can properly save the day.

Listen.

Redemption ain't easy.

Some times, you drop the ball, and sometimes, you drop the plate.

But as long as you feel bad about it, it's ok.

Rude dropped the Plate... but now the casualty rate was like 40% lower somehow

When Reno dropped it EVERYBODY on top and bottom died!

Reno really enjoyed his job...

but he was never the same after the platefall

Reno was the type of guy who'd slit ur throat steal ur wallet and piss on ur corpse!

but after the plate... well His gallows humor faded and he just couldn't enjoy hurting people anymore

All the sadistic glee seemed to have been drained out him

To be fair, Reno and Rude are presented as much less outright villainous in the Remake. And they actually seem somewhat friendly with Aerith.

Tseng, however is even more of a dick (and yet he doesn’t slap Aerith this time)

IDK Tseng actually treats Aerith fairly well and doesn't come off as much as a Devil in a nice suit trying to catch her in a predicament

Half the time He acts like he isn't even trying to catch her... and only Accepts her surrender when she pretty much telegraphs she's going to surrender herself for Marlene's safety

[up]I hope the next parts go into the relationship between Aerith and the Turks a bit more.

Also, Opera Omnia is getting updated with the final chapter of Act 2 tonight. Also Wo L will be getting his Burst and LD weapons and Laguna and Thancred will be getting EX+ reworks

Reno seems friendly to Aerith? Since when? I'd believe that if we were talking about Tsung, or Rude. But Reno? No way.

Hell, the guy even tried to gun down Tifa when he saw her coming up the stairs. Her only savings grace was that Rude veered the chopper of center to make him miss.

Anyhoo, if Rude's the most powerful member of the Turks, does that mean he's stronger than Rufus? Because in terms of gameplay, they're both equally cheap and annoying because they auto-counter everything you do, unless it's a Limit Break.

And I'm curious whether that means he can beat Cloud if he didn't hold back, 'cuz Cloud appears to hold back considerably given what we see of his duel with Sephiroth at the end of chapter 18.

I wouldn't mind failure so much, if I didn't fail so much.
