Riot Peak's pretty easy in this game.  If you die, you don't have to go through all of the battles to go up again, you can just skip right to the top.

Even the "final" Riot Peak battle is relatively easy.  The only issue is that one of the girls has pretty much a perpetual Ironstance on (not as bad as in the battle in Zhonecage, where it's almost impossible to stun her), so it can be annoying.

Tip: In Future Arc, the boss in Riot Peak is the best way to farm money.  On Chaos, NG+, you earn about 130,000 Gald per one minute battle.

More of the Prada pics have been revealed.

I suppose it was a bit too much to hope for a clean-shaven Snow?

On the other hand, Sazh looks best. Again.

Nah, I think Aston not sending Asbel to the Knight Academy was a better choice.  Young Asbel obviously had his head in the clouds, he was an immature child (who isn't at that age?), and still hadn't even when the arc ended.  Give him three or four more years and he would have matured into a fine lord and accepted his duty. The child does not always know what's best for them; it's up to the parent to make the long term decisions.

Part of the point of the first half of the game is to show that Asbel going to the Knight Academy made him physically stronger, but did not develop him in other areas. Meanwhile, every other character developed physically as well as emotional strength.

Yeah, I'm extremely excited about Artorias.  Here's to hoping it's not going to be GFWL-only.

Spencer from Siliconera, who has been leaking the XIII-2 DLC since release (he correctly leaked all of them - sans maybe Pupu, which I don't believe he mentioned), says that the Lightning story DLC isn't the last.  I wouldn't say they're done yet.

Yeah, I've. . .no idea what they were thinking.

Tam has my favorite Big Bridge.  And, to keep it FFXIII-2 related, he also did a mix of one of the XIII-2 battle themes.  He mixes his violin with the official music, so it ends up very nice:

It's pretty low quality, but here it is.  It's. . .an interesting take. Different.  I'm not sure if I like it (I'll have to listen a few more times), but I can respect it.

Edit: After a few listens, I have to say that I really, really like the first two minutes, but after that the song just falls apart.

Gilgamesh battle.

Also, his dialogue when he shifts styles is great.

Given it's a side-story and an ARPG, I can see XSEED getting to this relatively quickly.

Or not, given it's a PSP game.

Slightly more information here:

A bit too pricey for my tastes, unfortunately.

Which reminds me,....  anyone tinker with the grade shop yet???

http://aselia.wikia.com/wiki/ToG_-_Grade_Shop

Yeah.... I miss old school grade shop, some of these sound like a damned pain in the ass.

Tip: Don't bother with Inherit Skills.  It's too expensive and relatively pointless.  Get the mastery SP option and the 2x SP option.  Then, on your new game, the first titles you should work on are the ones that give stat bonuses when you level up (Asbel has five of these, I believe, other characters have three or so).

If you don't have the 100-Combo hit titles for your characters, don't bother with the DamagexX, modifiers either, as you can screw yourself over with even the strongest enemies dying too quickly.

I ended up with some 2200 Grade after my first game.  3,000 or so after my second (Chaos).

I don't know, this probably comes as completely unsurprising coming from me, but I prefer Noel with Yeul.  Particularly after that Paradox ending where she finally gets her happiness alongside him.  Given the desperation of the situation, that she even is slightly happy means she loves him very deeply.

But I can agree that he works better with Serah than Snow does.

Vesperia's cast is my favorite and I loathed Rita as well. They just went way too far on her character.

Same with Pascal, though.

It probably comes with a download code.  It does just say "No UMD version."
