Final Fantasy...from (GBA)Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls(cont.2) 

I got pretty lost so I looked around for a map and I found a good one here...LINK...

After a while I wondered if there was one in the game itself and found out that there is one by pressing Select + B. (I don't feel too dumb as I don't have a manual.)

Final Fantasy...from (GBA)Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls(continued) 

 

I came upon the location of the Earth Crystal (1st of 4) and was halted by the "lich...Fiend of Earth".

 

 I'm not too great at strategizing, so I resorted to grinding to about 10-15 levels higher than I needed to be to beat this guy.

 

I've been using this FAQ...LINK...to keep me from getting bogged down in some of the more confusing dungeons.

Final Fantasy...from (GBA)Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls 

My year of Final Fantasy has begun...

As you can see, I had a little fun with the names...

On the version that I'm playing, you get to choose from a couple dozen random names for each character. I picked names that had R_TS as first initials...unfortunately, I couldn't find any "I" names.

(PS3) Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

I restarted my Gamefly account so I could save some money and I threw Uncharted on the list hoping that I could get it.

I had gotten stuck on it 2 years ago at about the halfway point because of the "bullet sponge" effect. Apparently, the enemies have defined animations that they go through when they take damage and if you shoot at them while they are in thier animations, they don't take additional damage. I heard about the solution to this problem (pace out your shots so the animations have a chance to play out) and this made all the difference in the world.

Until this play-through, my favorite part of the game was the Tomb-Raider-like exploring and puzzle-solving elements. I thought the combat sucked, but once I wrapped my head around the "trick", I enjoyed the combat much much more.

I had a huge smile of my face as the final credits rolled and I decided to add the "Pile of Shame" section to the website...hopefully, this will get me motivated to complete more games on my list...hehe
