    I don't remember that boss, but I think it would be a safe bet that casting nullshock would be a good strategy. Bring Lulu and hit it with some water spells too.

    But yeah, I don't remember this boss at all so it may not be that good of advice tounge.gif Can't hurt to try, though.

    Crap. I can't beat that Budda Temple level w/Tesshu getting a master of assassians rank!!!! It's the only one left that I don't have a perfect score on!!!!!!!

    I have a new question and guess WHAT? It's about Dark Cloud 2!

    Ahem,

    I am going to start a 100% game when summer starts (2 weeks!! laugh.gif ) and I would like to know how the hell I can do those cursed fishing races. You know, it's like Gran Turismo but with FISH! Any pointers for the Dark Cloud mastah?

    As I remember it correctly, you need to invent the aquarium. Unfortunately, I don't remember how to do that, but I know you need it. Find a place to fish, catch one, and put it in your tank. I'm not sure, but I believe there's some feeding involved. Anyway, the town you originally start in will host the races every now and then. The game is supposed to alert you to when the races start. I hope that helps.

    I'm looking for some help with La Pucelle: Tactics.

    I'm trying to locate a list of monsters that can and cannot be purified enough to join the team. I'd espeically love it if I could find a list that gives, on average, the purification power needed to convert them.

    Thanks for any and all help!

    I'd doubt bosses can be purified until they show up as random monsters; those are probably only the really restricted ones.

    The rule of thumb for purification seems to be the higher level of the monster, the more purification. I've found things purify faster the less HP they have, though that could be merely coincidental (I generally use Alouette, who in my game has very high INT levels).
    To make your life easy, try beefing up your INT and DEF on one of your characters and assign them to mainly purifying.

    Paws:

    I'm pretty sure purify does your purification level in hidden damage against their life bar on another hidden bar.

    I know bosses can't be purified, but I know there are other monsters that will not convert either. That's what I was hoping for. ;)

    It's been so long, I can barely remember. The most help I can offer is to go around Lunatic Pandora and draw a whole lot of spells. Junction those spells to your best characters' stats. Get'em up nice and high. After that, save and try your hand at Adel again. You should have more spells, and better stats, to fight the battle with. You can also bring Zell and use the Super Duper Dragon Punch combo (keep using his shortest combos, the two-button ones, over and over again). You should be able to get off an enormous number of these before Zell's Limit period ends.

    After that, you'll be in Ulti's castle. You'll have a great many chances to level up and gather good spells there.

    Hi. I need serious help in .hack//quarantine (the fourth chapter).

    Right at the beginning you need to enter a dungeon and you need 2 Virus Core J's. Apparantly, you get those from small-sized monsters in Omega server. However, I've opened almost 10 new areas on Omega server and I couldn't find a single small-sized monster.

    I checked the FAQs, there are only two or something... The monsters listed there as having Virus Core J's are in areas apparantly I don't have access to. I mean, their keywords don't even appear!

    This is very frustrating, and I really need some help.

    Ok, here's a list of the monster's and keywords where you can find them that can be Data Drained for a Virus Core J:

    Earth Hsien - Omega Sickened Imprisoned Fallen Angel
    Wood Maiden - Omega Cruel Vindictive Scars
    Flame Maiden - Omega Rotting Countless Sacrifice
    Madam Niagra - Omega Hidden Darkside Holy Ground
    Gob Machine - Omega Rotting Countless Sacrifice
    Pandora's Box - Omega Mysterious Haunted Secret Tower

    If you don't have access to those keywords yet then there must be something else you need to do first before getting access.

    Right, i got 2 questins for you guys..

    1) In FFVII, can you actually revive Aeris, or is that total bull?
    2)Shenmue 3confused.gif?confused.gif
  • madhtrmadhtr Full Member Full Members
    edited July 2004
    1. There is no way to revive Aeris(Aerith if you want to get picky). You can use a Gameshark to play as her during the game(after that fateful event) but that is not the same thing.

    2. It's truly doubtful that the game will ever see the light of day. Now that Sega and Sammy have formed Sega Sammy Holding Corporation and considering Sammy owns most of the company..... I see Sega focusing on it's arcade aspects and less on the developing of games for consoles. It's possible but the time that has passed since Shenmue II is probably just too long. I guess just keep an eye on your screen and if it's announced then you'll definitely know about it.

    Actually it's quite the opposite. There is no online aspects in FF12. All offline. Definitely the style of game that i enjoy.

    well atleast theres some good news hey? but im sure i saw like a package where you got the game and a modem for your ps2, but nm.
  • madhtrmadhtr Full Member Full Members
    edited July 2004
    See, what you're thinking of more than likely is FFXI which ships in a package with the PS2 HDD. That game is only playable online.

    FF12, though, will not be online at all so nothing to worry about here.

    The onlt thing i can think to tell you is to try the random keyword search and hope that eventually you get the one you need........ Other than that i don't know what to tell you.

    Right now? Other than Star Wars: Knights of the old Republic, no, but there are a few RPGs coming out over the next year or so and there is the possibility that a couple might be good.

    You might want to try some non-RPGs such as Ninja Gaiden and if you're into sports at all Top Spin is a very fun game.
