"I’ve restarted Final Fantasy XIII three times and never beaten it. Never even gotten close really. The game isn’t hard. If it were anymore linear it would be in 2D, and even the mildest of level-grinding makes you a force to be reckoned with quickly. No, it’s leveling up your damn weapons. See, in FFXIII you don’t win money from defeating monsters, you win things like horns and teeth. I’m fine with that, it makes way more sense, but you’re supposed to utilize these components in a synthesis system to upgrade your weapons.
I constantly, constantly find myself bewildered by this, charging down a wrong path and then just hitting the reset button hoping that eventually I will do the “right” path as far as acquiring the best equipment at the best level for the fewest amount of pointless farm battles.”
