Re: What's the Difference? Let's Rush Final Fantasy 4 DS!

http://nosimpleway.brontoforum.us/letsplay/ff4ds/ff4ds0406.png There's one thing left to do. There's a rock formation on the moon that looks like a human face.

The third runthrough, or New Game ++ http://nosimpleway.brontoforum.us/letsplay/ff4ds/ff4ds0397.png My Bestiary is almost full. There's a blank spot for Barnabas-Z, because I keep putting in too many inputs and by the time Barnabas goes down, Lugae follows too quickly for the transformation to happe...

Re: What's the Difference? Let's Rush Final Fantasy 4 DS!

http://nosimpleway.brontoforum.us/letsplay/ff4ds/ff4ds0390.png So technically Kain powering up for five turns and hitting on his sixth is slower than an all-out damage race, as evidenced by Zeromus getting to use Big Bang this time around.
