Status & Notes: 

So, I did a very small run through Airship course on Duel Colisseum with Shantotto... and it went... okay... takes a while to really learn how to play as a new person... especially when they have no AP whatsoever. After that, I spent a little time trying to practice Time Attack mode, because you know, I'd like to get a bunch of Rosetta Stones. Yeah, I'm really bad at Time Attack mode... why? I don't know, I have trouble blocking I guess. Well, eventually I decided to try something I haven't tried at all in my almost 90 hours of play time... Command Battle!

Command Battle is a very interesting feature that Square decided to put into this game. Wanting to market this game to RPG fans as well as Tournament Fighter fans... in Command Mode you move automatically and just select command types from a list. For some reason, it is a lot easier to pull some things off. In Time Attack mode, I like this because there's no customization, so some of the button combos you need to do to pull off certain things... and being in the exact location is rather tricky. This eliminates the positioning and really just requires you input the commands at the right time. Also, I'[m REALLY not going to feel bad using an emulator for this, as it will cut down on my learning time by alot...

So, my goal for today is to actually finish a run through Time Attack mode and take care of that achievement... after that... well, probably a bit of AP training or something... still need some Transmogridusts after all...

Oh yeah, small editorial note... MOST of that 1:32 I had in play time today was really spent towards just recording all the data for the new characters... really took a while... was my longest writing day probably since Tactics...
