I'd rather them two hook up as well.  After all the shit they're going through?  Some good sex would be nice for the two of them...

But Snow went to go look for Lightning even though Serah looked nuts... can't have Serah be all like, "Umm, yeah, there's someone else" without destroying some of what makes her so innocent n' shit.

Snow has a decent shot with every lady in xiii-2 I think, including lightning. Besides, the way he keeps throwing her to the side to go stuff "for her" seems more like an excuse to go get some heroine booty. I honestly think this is as close to two timing in the ff world as possible, but meh, fat single guy doesn't have a good grip on relationships.

They just tossed version 1.03 up, almost kicked me off my game to do it, but after a swift cancel, I went, saved and just updated now. Any idea what this ner version fixed/added/removed/nerfed/etc?

I was desperately saddened when the first scene between Noel and Snow didn't escalate beyond subtle hostility.  There's good subtplot material there and, as mentioned, just add Lightning to the bunch and make it a four-way relationship.  It's a horrible guilty pleasure of mine.  You can throw in Hope too, since he was passively flirting with Serah.

Massive bitchiness alert.

When you reach Yaschas Massif 1X AF, there is a quest to fight some cie'th named gorgyra. I have to admit, someone was trolling when they made this asstart. Fight is easy, til it starts filling the battle with some miasma that generates status ailments every few seconds. I could almost deal with tha np, but one of those effects is a daze that lasts a good 10 seconds. K, I know what you're thinking, equip something to prevent it, can't cuz my accessory capacity is too low to equip it. In any case, daze isn't the worst part, I have some 50 remedies on hand and a three pack med paradigm including one kick ass green chocobo. The PROBLEM comes in the last leg of the fight when he gets desperate. The miasma crap starts landing effects faster and he starts spamming ( he usez it beforehand too, but spams when near death) a move called anguished melody. Apparantley it deals damage based on how many status effects you've compiled. If I have more than 3 at any time, it deals 3-4000 damage, killing me twice over, and that's per character. Wouldn't be so bad if he didn't use it every 3 hits, but heaven help me if I blink, I get nailed. He has about 840k hp, which at this point in game is hefty by any standards. I have gotten him down to 42k in 2 fights, and about 50k+ in the majority of the rest. My last encounter ( the one before I fucking flung my controller in disgust) was at 65,437 last I checked, and then 8 minutes of non stop healing trying to stay alive long enough to switch paradigms and land a quick volley of magic. Finally got sacked about 3 minutes ago now. Gotta say, bullshit is pretty stinky guys, and this definitely ain't no axe bodyspray I'm catching wind of. Gonna try coming back to it later, maybe get some better equipment or higher accessory capacity.

Btw what the hell is with the shop, 6 areas I've run through and nothing new in stores, outside of fucking monster clothes. Was terri ly excited to get a fucking red propeller for my flanbolero.

You'll find a Flanborg soon enough; as, if memory serves right, you need to use a Wild Artefact to get to the timeline where they exist because without a Key Item from there you won't be able to progress along the main storyline. Can't say for sure because I found it naturally during my explorations.

As for the boss; silly question. Have you tried pumping up a Synergist enough so they know the Veil spell? I'm pretty sure Veil gives you a blanket resistance against every status effect.
________________

New Side Rants:

-Accessories suck. You only get 100 AP total and that's it. Most accessories that do anything of value are in the 45-55 range. Sure there are the 'delicate' variants which are about 35 AP on average; but they come at the price of a reduced effect as well as required farmed materials to craft. So they blow chunks all around.

-The casino sucks. Even a level 20+ normal chocobo can't race worth beans; you have to hunt down the rare breeds to make any sort of progress there. Additionally the slots have really, really bad odds even when the machine is 'on fire'. Not to mention it's of the 'timed hit' variety which I've always hated to play. Throw in the fact that an achievement, four fragments (one of them specifically requiring you to win over 7777 coins at the slot machine), and a Wild Artefact are all tied to this pace and requiring over 400K in money investment if you have really bad luck...

Worst, mini-game diversion, ever.

And what's worse is I'm sure all the 'skill over luck' casino games are going to be DLC only.

Hope's already getting some nice booty, though. How much more obvious do they have to make it? "Assistant"... yeah, sure... right.

When I got to the part where I asked him questions, I asked him what Alyssa was around for, he goes into this long winded explanation of how invaluable she is because of her research into the paradox, and then closes the live trigger by adding, "Well, that, and she gives good head."

I've never seen so many innane hand gestures in my life. It's like watching a couple guidos argue over whos momma's meatballs are better. When you meet the nora guys, noel and yuj specifically start throwing their hands up in all different directions, it's hillariously stypid. Oh, as for noel not being like snow....yeah the game even makes a joke about it when you meet up with snow. Only difference is snow is more obnoxious about it, whereas noel is more serious.


As far as returning characters go though, 10 points for new Hope, -50 for keeping old Hope's voice actor on new Hope. Who thought that was a good idea, seriously? He grows 2 feet and wears a fucking pimp ass suit, and he still has that silly boomerang and his whiney oh noes voice, just glad they made him seem less needy, though I think officially every main male in XIII-2 wants a piece of Serah's tiny, flat jp booty. I will admit, I do approve of the fact they retained Snow's old theme. Was pretty badass. God I wanna go home and play more, fucking work grahhh, fucking slow moving bus.

Anyone else not like the fact that the genji bow quickly became obsolete? Also, wtf is with the preorder summoner costume thing, she looks terrible. Finally, mog rocks. Fuck all you haters, I approve of the fully voiced kupo, especially when he fucks something up....or even better when you get to throw him. I giggle every time.
Are you playing the same game? Hope's voice is deeper and more mature, the VA did a great job with ageing him up.

Just saw the side comment on the Summoner's Outfit. Strange, I'm completely opposite of you on that standpoint. I think her standard outfit is horrendous and feel sorry for anyone who didn't order through GS because the SO looks far better.

Just fought a gigantaur and nearly pissed myself with excitement when I got its crystal, then I noticed it's  a grade 4 synergist with shit stats as of now. i haven't gotten any tier 4 organic monster items yet. So basically, more crap in my inventory.

Been to the casino, and I know the feeling. Slots sucks, and racing is balls. I've caught a green chocobo, but he's in my paradigm pack so I used a regular chocobo. Yeah....waste of time. I am currently in archlytte step trying to nab a red chocobo (if you played tactics, you probably fear them as much as I do). Ballsy commando bird likes to super buff himself then beat you down, but he's not hard to debuff. I've also found purple chocobos in bresha ruins ( snowy version) but when I arrived there the first time, bitch bird ran away after 10 minutes of his defensive ass using entrench. Personally, I wants a black chocobirdy so I can name him Teio and piss EVERYONE off as I break the game.

Regardimg gorgyra, I didn't have anyone who could cast veil that I recall, but more importantly, my paradigm pack is sort of filled perfectly for what I do. I have noel on synergist, and I can't remember if he has veil or veilga, but if he does, I've tried it and it doesn't hold up (i mostly lead with serah, since ravager aoe moves rape normal fights and I don't really notice what spells he tosses up while I debuff and heal). i'll confirm later on if I do have it or not, and if not I will try that next, being I just got a HUEG cactus that will buff me.

Back to the casino, lol color swaps of chocolina. I like the blonde in blue feathers. She looks like a bimbo, hee hee.

For Gorgyra: I suspect she's there just so you can backtrack later and take on for real THEN, because fuck fighting her at that point. Took too long to do any serious damage while juggling between my offensive and defensive paradigms, and I ended up biting it entirely. I'll just try after clearing another node or something.

I do have veilga btw, but it seems I've had it for some time, leading me back to my original bitching of Status Effects out the ass. I'm gonna get my accessory capacity up and try a couple ribbons later, or get bored in a bit and try simply outmuacling the bitch.

Improved moovle throw is a lie. Getting one gil isn't better than getting nothing and waiting a year for mog to come back.

I fought that Cieth you were having troubles with. If you have access to Bresha 300 AF I suggest hunting down a Circuitron, leveling it up, and adding it to your assault party; also equipping someone with a Hypnocrown.

It's Feral Link ability gives your entire party full buffs and lightning element to their attacks. With Hypnocrown you pretty much get to recast it every time the dark fog pops up again. With some well-time recoveries and switching over a Medic/Medic/Com. formation whenever your HP gets low should do the trick.

If I've ever said anything negative about Noel, I take it all back.  The scene with he and Snow once you finish the Steppe and return to Sunleth - wow.  It's like everything Lightning in XIII wanted to say, but couldn't find the words for, he did.

I would kiss you if it weren't for the fact that my phone screen may get slobbered on. I am definitely gonna try that next. Sad too, I fought a bunch of those circuitrons, but didn't get a crystal. Bresha Ruins 300af was a cool spot too, I loved the snow effect on your clothes there, and on the chocobo.
