OK then its confession time. How long did it take to beat it

[/div]

my last save before the point of no return was about 96-something hours, and my NG+ save is at 99:49. Granted, that covers the entire endgame sequence, multiple boss battles, and my picking and choosing what I wanted to carry over in NG+, but it is what it is. :3

if you mean actual attempts at the final boss, his first form took me two tries, second form took me twelve or thirteen tries, and i blasted through the third form in one shot.

and about how many side quests did you complete?

[/div]

final pre-endgame save has 167 listed as completed, though i have 189 sitting in the queue total.

Also one last one. Did you have an interest in completing a good deal of side quest or just wanted to get on with the main game.

[/div]

i kinda fluctuated on this one — I didn't want to get mired in sidequesting, but I love running around talking to people so i'd pick up a lot of random quests. then, every so often as i went through the story I'd find myself in need of grinding, and as i fought the enemies in each area and collecting stuff, i'd wind up fulfilling most of the quests i'd picked up anyway.

One last thing. I've tried and tried to kill that monster sitting on the throne in the fortress but have failed like 8 times. We are the same level so I guess ill wait another couple of levels before I attempt that again. He rips me apart a little to fast.

[/div]

I'm assuming you mean the one in the Igna Fortress or whatever? it's been a while, but iirc, just enter from the side entrance, lure away the people surrounding him one-by-one (press d-pad down on the big 'enter battle' icon until you get to the purple arrow icon — that's Lure), and then take him down — that's the easiest way. Some unique monsters have quite the crowd around them, so lure away the ones you can. some of them are attached to their attending monsters and will attack along with them, though, so don't try to Lure away anything standing very close to the unique monster itself. if you're just trying to beat that quest and rescue the Nopon girl, you can sneak your way behind everyone in that throne room via the side entrance. just walk slowly and be careful, and if you're spotted, run like hell :3

@G4L: the guide I used to help me when i got stuck says that for 'Sweet Seduction', sell off any Walnut Grape you may have and then talk to Kofuko in Frontier Village. You'll get another quest, which you must complete, and then talk to Migaga to complete this one. As for the Mystery Egg, skip to the Eks Watering Hole, northeast of which is a circular-ish path leading to a ledge north of Twisted Tree Gate. the egg can be found there. give it to Gagada, then go see Bana.

theblackdragonAdmin

A good rule of thumb is that if you don't want it to be found via Google, don't post it online. I'm afraid our profiles (not everything visible on the 'Edit Profile' page like your e-mail address or the 'real name' field, but your viewable public profile) are public information. If your real name is not anywhere in your signature or profile, Google auto-updates their searches every so often, so that hit for your real name should go away in a month or three provided you haven't used it anyplace else here at Nintendo Life (our forums and site are all publicly viewable).

@PikminMonster: there's no reason for anyone to be upset by any of the posts here so long as no one's listing users they don't like (because that's just a quick way to start trouble). If we were going to close this thread for fear someone would be offended, we'd've done so long ago.

if someone doesn't see their name listed here, they're more than welcome to post the names of some of their favorite users instead. the longer you're here and the more you contribute constructively to Nintendo Life, the more likely you are to have someone put your name into this silly old thread :3

@theblackdragon YOU REMEBER SUIKODEN AND LOVE IT???

eff yes i do! i've had my ears perked for any news of that new Suikoden PSP game coming westward; i loved (most of) what they did with Tierkreis and i'd kill for another handheld Suikoden (yes, i know i can get S1 via PSN, but 1 is useless without 2 to follow it up and make it amazing IMO ). i hope we get it too, unlike how they released S1&2 in Japan and nowhere else

from this article:

Despite the introduction of electricity, running water, and "labor-saving" household appliances, time spent on housework did not decline. Indeed, the typical full-time housewife today spends just as much time on housework as her grandmother or great-grandmother. In 1924, a typical housewife spent about 52 hours a week in housework. Half a century later, the average full-time housewife devoted 55 hours to housework. A housewife today spends less time cooking and cleaning up after meals, but she spends just as much time as her ancestors on housecleaning and even more time on shopping, household management, laundry, and childcare.

(b) if you have a larger SD card and you want to transfer all your stuff from the smaller one via a computer, just copy the contents of the entire SD card to a folder on your computer, then pop in the new SD card and copy all the contents of the folder you just made to the new SD card. it'll be fine. :3
