Final Fantasy XIII-2 Small Talk

171 Replies 733 Views Created 04-02-2012

Just thought we could have a single thread for all the FFXIII-2 talk. Better than just making singular threads everytime.

 

So I have a problem already. Anyone got to Oerba 200AF yet? At the end you have a boss battle with

Spoiler
Caius. He keeps demolishing me. Stagger him one and then he goes crazy afterwards. Heals himself every few seconds.

Anyone done this yet? Any tips?

I've given up trying to platinum the game, I was so close as well. I was basically only missing the fragment for fighting one of every monster. And then get all the different endings. I just couldn't be arsed to find them all, might play it again at some point. But I've got other games I want to play at the moment.

Is it Caius in the "inbetween" world that you couldn't beat? I have to say unless you meet him again that was very easy. Infact the easiness of the battles is somewhat of a let down. I do fight everything though lol. It does get a tad boring but it will A) help me level up and B) help me capture them. I have grabbed quite a few monsters this way but I am going to have to find the ones I have missed :$

 

Some of this game you will not be able to do without looking up. The terminal fragments and the Captain questions I so Googled! Impossible as it suggests lol. I do sometimes wonder whether they do this onpurpose to get SEO for their games. Make a hard bit and it's all over the Internet! 

 

Will try to platinum it depending on whether I have to start over again or if I can go back to a certain point? I have about 7 saves so far but wish I had done more at each stage. Ah well...

Because of how you can lock gates, I think you can platinum the game in 1 run regardless of whether or not you miss stuff :) You shouldn't have to start over or load an old save :)

Aye, exact same, you finish, credits roll, you get asked to create a new save, where you have (I think) 30k CP, a certain item, and the final boss entries in the bestiary :)

You don't :P

 

There's 7 paradox endings and the secret ending.

 

To get the alt. endings you can just lock the gate needed and then go do whatever is needed like that.

 

Edit: May be automatic than Yrag, Iunno

You won't be racking up 150 that's for sure cause I've seen people platinum it in 70 and that's how long it took me to do the story of XIII first time.

Not for me. I platinumed XIII in about 120 hours lol but I don't look stuff up or use guides unless I had circled the world like 10 times then I resort to the Internet (or for quizzes) :D I could probably check actually? Does it say if I load up the game? 

 

People are saying XIII-2 is shorter though which is a bonus and if you can't miss anything well that's all good :D

 

I have noticed you don't seem to have to do so much grinding in this one though so we will see :P

Mass Effect costumes rumored to be coming.

 

XIII saves do indicate the time spent playing :)

 

XIII-2's platinum is somewhat shorter, it took me 80 hours or so, but there's less of a grind for it.

See that and there is an assassins creed outfit for Noel too. Very random. I completed the story now, yay! Time to choose the other option. 

 

So in order to re-play the scenes again I need to close the gate it is contained in? Is this how it works?

Aye, for example, if you close Bresha Ruins 005 you start from the point where you enter through the gate and fight paradox alpha's fist, to unlock the rest of the timeline again you just need to go back to Historia Crux and unlock Bresha Ruins 005 :)

Ah, he can be beaten really easy, use SAB on Serah SEN on Monster, then just poison + wound him, switch to MED/SEN to heal, when he's wounded as much as possible, he'll be at like 1/4 health and should be very easy ^^

He was fairly easy in the end once I had the right set up.

 

Now I am trying to win a Chocobo race and I did do a little search which suggest the silver chocobo is the best but it needs to be infused with a pulse gladiator. Well I have the increased monster spawn thing turned on and harder enemies turned on in the fragment abilites. The Archlyte Steppe needs to be dusky. Running around I got 2 to spawn in pairs but I didn't quite beat the 2nd one quick enough. 

 

Perhaps I need a decent monster in my party :/
