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.

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.

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 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.

I only lost that Yunalesca battle on my first try a couple weeks ago because I accidentally forgot to get rid of the zombie status when I used a mega phoenix to revive other characters and couldn't recover. She's really not that hard if you disregard the the zombie affliction until your characters are almost dead and then get rid of it to heal. Just keep beating her face in. I won the second time with ease.

American Hustle -

American Hustle certainly has problems sustaining its ridiculous story and characters, but this is incredibly lively filmmaking with solid performances from every cast member. The story is kind of hard to follow at times because they try to make you look one way while doing something else the other way, but it was very enjoyable. I liked the dynamics of the characters. Christian Bale and Amy Adams in particular were the most impressive. I love Jennifer Lawrence as an actress and she is decent here, but she did not deserve an Oscar Nomination. The whole movie is gorgeous to watch and completely envelops you in its style. It's really nothing more than an incredibly stylish caper film and I don't understand why it was nominated for so many Oscars, but it is a very enjoyable couple hours if you like more mature films. Just don't go in expecting it to blow your socks off.

Yeah you and I have the exact same opinion.  I admire like crazy that the "glorious reviews" didn't worsen your opinion, rather you enjoyed it for what it was and kept the reviews separate --- that's not always easy to do.

I feel the same.  I liked the film, found it wildly *entertaining* but not enough to get why oscar nominations were being thrown at it left, right, and centre.

Thanks! I always try to watch a film separate of the reviews so that I have an unbiased opinion even though I could probably recite the RT score to thousands of movies off the top of my head because I check it everyday to look at new releases and older movies I'm discovering. It's easier to do with films that have good reviews in my experience. Movies that have horrible reviews that I am not enjoying on any level I just immediately go "Yeah, they were right about this and this etc".

Watched a couple more over the weekend.

Homefront -

Homefront is mostly just your typical Jason Statham action film, but it is livened up a bit by a scenery chewing performance from James Franco a story with enough intrigue to keep you invested until the end. The action is fairly standard for the genre at this point, but still well done. Sylvester Stallone did the screenplay, which is contrived and ridiculous in spots and could have been improved. He wrote it specifically with Statham in mind though, and it shows. It caters to his good qualities enough to make this an enjoyable B movie experience, even if it isn't exactly high quality cinema. Definitely worthwhile for action buffs or Statham fans, but little appeal beyond that really.

EDIT: BEAT SEYMOUR WITH POISON.  FUCK YOU MENG.

I did the same thing. I think that's the best way to beat him honestly.

Getting Agility and Luck Sphere's is going to take FOREVER. After the strength, defense, and magic defense spheres being so easy I guess I should have expected this, but still it's annoying. The Great Sphere counters with Ultima after EVERY HIT so I have to wait for that animation, then wait for my characters to heal with auto-potion or auto-phoenix and it has 1.6 million HP which takes 17 hits of 99,999...

Been maxing stats in FFX today. Tidus has max STR, DEF, and MDEF. Trying to work on Agility, but the damn arena monster that drops it has ridiculous evasion. Accuracy is pointless too so I'm not sure what to do. Got Triple AP weapons for every character as well.

Gattaca is a very good movie.

Went and saw the new Captain America. It's decent, but all those people saying its the best Avengers AND superhero movie evar are seriously messed up. Not even close to either statements. I actually liked the first one more. This is just Avengers Lite without all the other characters taking away screen time from Cap (which still happens with Fury and Black Widow). Speaking of Black Widow, Scarlet Jo annoys the hell out of me in these movies. She just has that "im sexy and I know it look" and doesn't even try to act at all. Her facial expressions almost had me laughing a couple times they were so ridiculous. This is is a worthwhile movie, but a bit overrated I think.

Hey Klutz, whats your PSN ID? Wouldn't mind adding you.

Finished up the initial sphere grid with Tidus so now I'm farming strength spheres from the Arena to max out his strength (which will take about 12 more I think). After that I'm not sure what to max out. Leaning towards defense I guess. Beat a couple of blitzball games. It's so boring now. I literally was up 10-0 a little after the half... I wish their was a mercy rule it would make this much less time consuming lol.
