    Final Fantasy Tactics is so much fun; it's so great to just break that game and maul the AI like it's never been mauled before.

    You know what other Final Fantasy is pretty broken, aside from V?

    Yeah, that's right. This one. The one that fans pretty much say is the worst one out of the series. I was one of these people, until I realized how easy it is to manipulate this game into doing whatever you want. Honestly, I've been enjoying FFVIII. The story, even with it's dumb plot twist, is hilarious to me. The story, I'm not going to speak much of. However, we're going to join me in the second disc, at the start of said disc. Anyone who knows me, knows how I play FFT and V; I will spend hours preparing for no real reason, to see how OP I can get before some point. VIII is no exception; I was OP by the end of the first disc! Squall had his ultimate weapon, Seifer had dropped in one hit and Edea didn't even get to attack. XD Anyway! Everyone got tossed into jail and had their weapons confiscated. Zell realizes that, derp, his weapon is his fists. So he's going around punching things until he gets everyone's stuff back! Of course me not having played this game in forever, I went the wrong way.

    Here's this guy now suddenly. He encountered me at a nice time: Whilst I'm in HP critical. I don't really care, though, I begin abusing the game:

    This right here is what most of my friends don't like the game for, the Draw command. It lets you take and stock monster's spells, or cast them for no real cost. You can stock up to 100 of a spell on one character. This guy has Haste and ????. Drawing ????, I learn that it's Slow; so I immediately cast it on the enemy and Haste myself. Now, this is where I'm glad I screenshot, because no one would have wanted to see me draw Haste off of this guy 50 times.

    The enemy uses Micro Missiles on Zell, which halves his HP. At that point I decide, "Yeah, it's time to go." and run. Screw that noise.

    Got no exp. The thing about this game is, enemies levels scale with you. The stronger you are, the stronger they are: And I'm taking advantage, because I'm a prick like that. It takes 1000 EXP to level up, and each level doesnt really do much to your stats. This is where Junctioning comes in.

    [​IMG]


    Nobody liked this crap, at all, when my friends and I were younger. Most of us didn't really understand it.. But I'm abusing it. I refined ten Tents into 100 Curagas on disc 1, and now I have a crapload of HP. I set Scan to Str purposely, and we'll see why Thundaga isn't on there later.

    Also, it's worth mentioning that I have the Enc-None ability, so I really don't have to fight ANY battles if I dont want to, but I have a reason behind that as well. Deciding I need a heal after getting hit by Micro Missile, I consume some random item laying in my inventory. Moving on!

    [​IMG]


    Four fools attack. Now, the yellow guys I can rough up just enough to where it's nearly dead and still get away without getting EXP, but because those other two jackasses are there, I have to run from this fight. What I did, though, was abuse the game again: If you have the ATB set to Wait, and you open up a menu that deals with selecting a spell or item, the gauge stops.. BUT YOU CAN STILL RUN AWAY UNSCATHED! Knowing this, I ditch these fools and continue going the wrong way.

    [​IMG]


    Now I got one of these tools by himself. What does he have for me to draw from him..?

    [​IMG]


    Esuna eh? I'll take 60. So this time I just run away, since I remembered that first guy I encountered that used Micro Missile. I kept on going the wrong way some more and eventually came across him, but this time, I let Zell fist him to death after getting Micro Missiled a few times.

    [​IMG]


    I get some EXP, but I also get something I wanted:

    [​IMG]


    This item is for Quistis, so I can abuse her Blue Magic later on. Neat. So now instead of wasting my Curagas, I just move on, this time following the correct path after screwing around. I have to progress at some point!

    [​IMG]


    "Hey! What are you doing!?" Stealing your Cures, because you don't need 'em!

    [​IMG]


    Fail. I have 100 Cures stocked, but because I flip through menus so fast I clicked the wrong thing. It made me laugh, however. After I healed up enough, I ran from them. Why? Because you cant Card human enemies. I learned a while back, that if you turn enemies into Triple Triad cards, you wouldn't get EXP.. But your GFs will still get AP! As a result, this level 10 Zell with 28K max HP has been doing whatever he wants!
    [​IMG]


    This little crudmudgeon has Berserks, so I start stealing those. Then afterwards I scan him to learn his HP, then start to punish him for really unsatisfactory damage rates.. Scan wasn't too good of an idea to put on STR, so we'll fix that.

    [​IMG]


    We'll Card this guy, and move on.

    [​IMG]


    Let's put my 100 Blizzards onto my STR now. I'm still not putting my Thundagas on there since it'll boost Zell's attack way too much, to the point where he'll kill an enemy with a critical hit instead of just weaken it enough to Card.

    Finally moving onwards, Zell gets everyone's weapons back, then randomly, Zell eats a mushroom and grows big. And apparently, high out of his mind, he starts threatening to kick asses. Don't believe me?

    [​IMG]

    Well really, he's refering to the people that put them all in the jail. And since they all have weapons again, kicking asses is what's going to happen! Junctioning up but not bothering to heal, Biggs and Wedge, a reaccuring cameo since forever, appear to get roughed up. I left Quistis and Selphie in the HP Critical stage, specifically so I can abuse Selphie for The End.

    [​IMG]


    I got Rapture instead. I laughed, since I knew it doesnt work on bosses; I used it anyway because it's too funny not to. Now had I have gotten The End, I would've been dying.

    [​IMG]


    Mega Fail. Biggs and Wedge go nowhere, but everyone just beats them to a pulp anyway and move on.

    Then of course, my break was over with and I had to go back to work. Which is where I've been for so long: Working. x_x
    I'm not dead yet, neither is the blog if anyone's still interested in my nonsense. Until next time!
