    Well I think I cleaned up most of the side quests, extra stuff for FFVI.

    Gonna grab lunch and then attack Kefka's Tower.

    Anyone have any last minute advice for me?

    Which version are you playing? If Advance, do you have Gilgamesh/Leviathan/Cactuar yet?

    Hmm, pre-release version? Wonder if they'll make any improvements after all. God I hope so (but honestly doubt it)

    You got all 14 characters in tow? Also, are they more or less equal in level to each other? Because the final dungeon is bringing back that whole multi party mechanic they used in Narshe and the Phoenix cave. So you can get away with some stragglers here and there, but you're gonna want 3 self sufficient parties more or less.

    Oh shit, that's good to know. I have definitely neglected a good portion of my other teammates.

    Do you have 12 decent party members? Just balance out the teams; make sure you have at least a capable magic user in each and you'll be fine.

    Well my main four are gods of destruction. I'm sure they all don't need to be on the same team. I'll level a few of the stragglers up a bit and give it a go. At worst I'll just have to level up a little more.

    Things I've done so far that I can remember:

    Got Odin
    Got the mime
    I think I've killed 6 dragons so far (Storm, White, Blue, Ice, Fire, earth?)
    Killed Doom Gaze
    went to the top of fanatic tower (and back down, ugh)
    i have the sasquatch
    the party menu screen is filled

    maybe something else i'm missing but i can't seem to find anything else.

    How many empty slots do you have on the Esper screen?

    Edit - Oh yeah, have you gotten Sabin's final Blitz? Have you gone to Doma Castle? And this doesn't do much in terms of gameplay, but have you visited the crazy old man?

    Storm is Mt. Zozo, Dirt is Opera House, Ice is Narshe, Fire is Phoenix cave, White is Fanatics Tower, Blue is Castle redux.

    Did you upgrade Odin to MGS2 protagonist? Did you ever fix Cyan?

    That was actually a pretty solid PR move on Square's part. The initial fuckup will probably outweigh it in people's minds, but that's really going beyond what was necessary to make things right.

    Now if only they'll fix the actual game.

    Just how awful are the load times on V & VI when using the PSN releases? I've been itching to play VI, and being able to do that on a PSP/Vita (well, hopefully Vita gets that capability soon) would be pretty nice. Are the load times bad enough to counter having a portable version that I don't have to throw a bunch of money at just to play the "is this a bootleg" game? I've also heard that the times are a bit better on the digital versions compared to the original releases. I had rented that collection once way way back and don't remember them being too atrocious to begin with.

    They're a little improved from the original PSX discs just because you're running it off of flash media rather than the CD, but like with the Chrono Trigger PSOne classic, the shitty load times are actually because of incompetent coding and not the CD, so most of it is still intact.

    Cyan's great if he's teamed up with Gau, Mog, and Umaro. Pick a dance, pick a Rage, let the yeti do his thing, and they'll run on autopilot, leaving Cyan enough time to actually charge up his sword-meter without completely hampering the party's damage output.

    You know, since it's the Virtual Console version, you can probably add the MULTITUDE of glitches to the list of fun stuff to do (and then wreak your save game with :D). Always fun to have "Fenix Down"s equipped in your weapon slot, on General Leo.

    I'd assume they would all work, VC doesn't modify their games (usually). But something about running in Wii's emulator might cause the glitches to react differently than on actual SNES hardware.
