Pretty disappointed in this one...

The Wolf of Wall Street -

The Wolf of Wall Street has fantastic lead performances, but Scorsese disappoints with this over indulgent mess. The story rings hollow thanks to completely unlikable characters, a far too lengthy story that is 3 hours long, and an over reliance on sex and drugs to entertain. There's moments of gleeful exuberance, but it gets exhausting after awhile watching these characters go absolutely insane on drugs. I understand that this is a cautionary tale, but they could have cut back at least a little bit. The one positive I see from this is that they allowed all of this craziness without giving it a NC17 rating. There's a ton of nudity and language to go with the drugs and sex and I don't know how they got it through the rating system, but it is a win for anti-censorship. This was definitely my least favorite of the Best Picture nominees this year. I usually love Scorsese, but he went overboard with this film.

Haven't been on most of the weekend because when I came home from work on Saturday my fiance surprised me with a PS4 and Infamous Second Son. I was so stoked! I've only played it for a little while, but the game is fun and the graphics are gorgeous. I really like that Sony added how rare trophies are too. When I get on my PS3 and Vita now it's kind of disappointing that it isn't there. How hard would it be to update that? I like the layout of the menues and stuff on the PS4 alot more than PS3.

Dodged 200 Lightning Bolts in a row AND beat the Chocobo Race while getting 5 treasure chests today. Man those two trophies were nagging at me forever it seemed. All I have left for trophies is maxing out the sphere grid with every character and beating Nemesis & Penance. I think I might try my hand at Nemesis tonight or tomorrow.

Eugh... I don't want to do the five chests....  Is it just me or does that Choco at Remiem change speeds randomly?  Once I barely finished with two chests.  I wouldn't know how to win by getting five; it's too close and the controls start to get fucky when the camera turns.

I'm glad you did the bolts though! :)

With regards to Pierre and Kid:

I thought Kid was the "tomboy" character in the *worst* ways, she drove me nuts.  Extremely minimal clothes and speech that may as well belong to a pirate, bleh.  She doesn't do a thing for me.

Pierre annoys me because these Japanese titles have a stupid and bad habit to create these French-talking, blond, fancy-pant, flamboyant characters for no better reason than a cheap laugh.  

That chocobo definitely changes speeds sometimes it is weird. A couple times it finished before i even got the 5th chest and I was like WTF. Getting 5 chests means you literally have to have a perfect run of not running into any walls and then you barely get past it at the very end. Took a ton of tries.

I did it in Chapter 4, I think I was around level 65.

Glenn was my favorite character like others, but I really felt bad for completely rejecting Kid haha. I haven't played through that game in forever, but your description of the manor section was effective in completely making me want to replay it. That and I was listening to the soundtrack before bed last night... just stellar. One of my all-time favorites.

Tried dodging bolts for like 20 minutes. I really suck at this. I've literally done every other minigame, but this one I always struggle with. I tend to freak out after awhile and miss one because I can't concentrate. Did reset the blitzball data and the sigil was the first prize for the league so now I need to go recruit my players and get this bad boy.

Is just resetting it easier?  I probably shouldn't recruit players for more than 10 games then...

And try my little prep list, Blace.  It still took a few attempts, but I managed, and when I was on a roll, I think I managed 250 before I got struck (it kinda sucks there's no trophy popup for when you hit that #...)

Dim the TV, turn on the lights (I went the full mile and put on sunglasses too), and hit up that cheat crater.  Find a "recognizable patch" that you know when to just press 'x' on before you even see/hear the bolt or that flash happening. 

Resetting the data is easier for the league prizes, yeah. Save before you do it and make sure the prize you want is there before saving over the file because you'll lose your players and levels for nothing. I got all the reels for Wakka and his weapon before resetting the data. Probably the easiest way. You can also save on before your 10th league match and if you don't like the prize just reset the system and beat the match again until the right prize pops up, but I didn't want to keep re-beating a match because I'm sick of blitzball at this point.

As for dodging bolts, how can you tell when to press X without waiting for the light or sound? I tried counting out seconds in between strikes and it was varying between 5-12 seconds which is very inconsistent. I was in that crater you mentioned.

This Crater.  It's in the south half (use the minimap in the video). It consistently BOLTS in that one area as you approach the crater (I had to do bigger circles around it than the guy in the video....dunno why).  With that consistent bolt, I was able to perfectly time and predict when each bolt was coming.  No fuss.

Holy shit I was doing the wrong one. I'm excited to go home and try this now. Thanks Dice!

I just used the 4 ninja technique Darilon mentioned. Makes it a breeze. Otherwise, it can be pretty hard.

I guess I just don't have the patience for it. I get antsy and start freaking out when the strikes are taking forever. I tried on my Vita last night to no avail. Not sure whether to do it on the Vita or PS3.

The Virgil DLC is NOT worth 9 bucks. Don't buy it! I got it for free for pre-ordering the game and was still disappointed! It's like 2 hours long and Virgil controls like ass until you unlock all of his abilities at the end. It is only for people who want to replay the same stuff over on the higher difficulties (not me). The comic book style animations for the story sequences were lame too. You could tell they spent zero time on this compared to the main game.

Back to progress. Finally got Auroch Reels which wraps up the Blitzball Master trophy. Still need the sigil though, which means I'm going to have to finish off this league and hope it pops up in the next one. I'm honestly sick of blitzball so I can't wait to end this. It's so boring once you have an unstoppable team. I have never lost a match nor have I won by less than 5 in any game. I have maxed out every stat on the sphere grid now except for Luck and Magic, the two that take the longest...

FFX

= Butterfly Catching was made difficult by my shitty depth perception.  Also, them butterflies are clearly laced with crystal meth.

= BEAT LIGHTNING DODGING. 
It took:
  • A full movie on in the background
  • Sunglasses after several failed attempts started to wear my eyes
  • Eyedrops, again due to the flashes wearing on my eyes gradually.
  • TV settings to dim the flashes and turning on the "big lights" (ie, not lamps)
  • Stop counting in anything other than approximates (I probably went over 200)
  • That awesome crater.  It's honestly really hard to do this unless you can keep a consistent pattern...

Was it worth it?   I dunno...Bragging rights I guess.

I still have not done the dodging because it hurts my eyes too much to concentrate on it for so long... maybe I should dim it like you said. I heard muting it is good too so the sound doesn't throw you off. This is gonna be one of the last things I do haha.

I remember hating Double Dash lol Must have been the reliance on a partner. I like doing everything myself :P

I don't get you all and your Yunalesca issues.
On my second run of FFX, I just zombieproof my trio.

If that's really all you did you would lose the second she changed to her third form.

I was going to say this lol.
