Dice, ignore everything and get Jech Shot 2.
You don't need a team.

You're still gonna need to level Tidus enough to get off more than one shot of the thing.

Also to actually be able to learn Jecht Shot mk2.

Also also, keep a goalie around at least so you don't have your opponents scoring a dozen goals while you wait for Tidus' HP to recharge after shooting once.

Actually, might as well just keep Besaid's chucklefucks around since you already have them and everything, and they'll give you something to do in between Jecht Shots.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Blitzball is fun for a while, and then gets impossible to lose at. Jecht Shot 2.Right?

Still working on clearing out iOS games.  Just finished The Devil's Attorney which was  a fun game.  The writing was funny and voice acting was surprisingly good.

Fate/Extra -  Defeated my first opponent.  First day of second opponent.

That does kinda preclude her from getting any of Wakka's other Reels/top tier stuffs.

Kinda one of my problems with the game that I had posted about earlier. Since the main plot and setting are so straight forward compared to other FF games, Square tried to make up for it with ridiculous amounts of sidequests/minigames spread across a large portion of the game. Up to Mushroom Rock Road and already I'm looking for Al Bed primers, Crests and Sigils, money to donate to O'aka, players to blitz with, so that I can level up my scouting ability, to improve my ability to recruit players, to play through the seasons of the blitz, and that Summoner Chick who'll eventually whip out the Magus Sisters after fighting all the other summons first. And I still haven't gotten to doofing around with teaching Summons anything or modifying equipment, or the monster arena, and so on.

And then there's the minigames, Blitzball, Lightning Dodging, Chocobo Racing, and so on. It's worse than a Zelda game in here.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

On Mt. Gagazet right now in front of the Seymour battle. Did a bunch of the Calm Land side quests beforehand and picked up Yojimbo and the cloudy mirror, but I'm going to wait till I get the airship before I go all the way back to unlock its power. The Kimahri battle was easier than I remembered, but I also knew the entire game it was going to happen so I switched to him in every battle just to get a shot in and get AP before subbing him back out for people I actually like haha. That damn chocobo race where you have to get 5 treasure chests is the most annoying bullshit of all time btw. I have the route down to perfection and I am right on top of the chocobo at the end but I have yet to get past it at the finish line. I literally tried non-stop for over an hour last night and was cursing at my tv. I literally do nothing wrong and still lose! I looked up videos on youtube and they do the exact same shit as me and somehow win... I don't get it and is pisses me off lol.

Took a peek at a walkthrough, seems I am about half way through Final Fantasy II for PSP. I swear though, if I get ambushed one more time...I just wish stat upgrades were more...consistent. I mean, I can lose HP and gain an upgrade at the end of a battle...but MP for Maria? Nope, it hasn't gone up in something like 50 battles.

Also, just need to snag 4 more trophies in Lightning Returns for a platinum...I just dread going through the desert dungeon again.

I ignored Blitzball too only because I was horrible at it.  I didn't like the sphere grid either.  I vaguely remember having problems in Kimahri's grid and running into locks and not knowing where to go.  I actually preferred X-2 and the dress spheres.

Started Metal Gear Rising, and wow, what an incredible game.  Platinum is in such a different league when compared to other developers, it's insane.

Finished Thomas Was Alone, talk about wasted potential.  Also working my way through chapter 5 in Bravely Default.

Metal Gear Rising set the standard for action games for me. It was the kind of EXPLOSIVE game that really clicked with me., it's not without it's flaws but IT'S AWESOME. I want a sequel so bad, with more development time ofc..

That's because Kihamri is useless and doesn't have a sphere grid of his own, he just can join unto someone elses albeit about 30 sphere levels behind.

Pretty much why I have never liked him. I chose Lulu's route this time (using the expert grid) and drain made the 2 on 1 fight a breeze. I never got close to dying and I could lancet all the moves off of them.

Rising did pretty well I think. Wouldn't be crazy to assume that there have already been plans for a sequel.

I really liked how the gameplay is basically a mix between Ninja Gaiden and Vanquish. Is not perfect, but a sequel could potentially end up being close to something like Ninja Gaiden Black.

Hm.  I might have him as a Rikku sub.  Unless there's a machine enemy she tends to fall by the way side too (at least I never found a huge use for her in the main game)

Rikku shines in low level / no sphere grid playthrough because of her "everything does 9999" recipe.
