      RTX 2013 tickets have been purchased! Time to figure out how to afford the rest of it, and recover from minor snowboarding related injuries :P (Note to self, its sometimes better to fall on my face than stop myself falling with my hands, that way i sprain fingers)

    • Jetlag over!

      7 years ago

      Milky1985

      So I am now back in the UK , the jet lag is sorted now after a very awkward day yesterday of using everything in my power to stay awake (mostly lots of cola and getting my butt kicked by very hard computer opponents in starcraft 2, and red vs blue obviously) after i landed a 6am but i have now recovered! Mostly anyway, except for the legs which still hurt a bit, I suspect they started hurting during lazer tag when i was trying to avoid being pistol whipped by aww102 :P (I kept on shooting him and shelbasor whenever they tried to come round a corner, then charged down and got them by going round the corner, think that annoyed him :P)

      RTX is now over so back to normal UK life, including queues in shops , drunks on the street and inappropriate dinner conversations ...... so basically nothing has changed!

      Only difference is that I am not hanging out with the great guys and girls i was hanging out with at RTX, who i think have all made it safely home now (although we should all have a minutes silence in honor shelbsor and huggyV's missing luggage), Miss you all already and hope to see ya all again soon!

      Now to buy those MCM tickets..

    • 6 hour layover :/

      7 years ago

      Milky1985

      Managed to get up in time for my first flight, now at Chicago for my monster layover, found a plug socket tho so tempted to break out the laptop and play some star craft 2, first to pass the time and secondly to see how many odd looks I get sitting on the floor flailing my mouse around as I play

      Hope everyone else from rtx has had a good trip back or is having a good trip back!

    • RTX is now fully finished :(

      Milky1985

      RTX is now done, was great to say bye to people at hte salk lick (and eat more bbq) but also very sad.

      Now just an evening of depression as i prepare for my flight tomorrow

      Hopefully tho there is light at the end of the tunnel in the way of RTX next year!

      Second to last sidequest event is over, said goodbye to a few really nice people and hope i can see them again asap! Was awesome fun but oh so tiring, everyone was taking it seriously with even a few leeeeeerrroooyyyys in there for good measure :D

      Oh and suck it blue! You couldn't hold out against my covering fire (apparently firing 1k shots during the game is a bit too much :P)

      Aye, as I was saying, I'm staying till Tuesday anyway, flying out the Thursday with Accipita - and whoever else joins us. Probably gonna take the early morning flight from Heathrow dunno loads of time to choose mind.

      It actually worked out cheaper to book via quidco and hotels.com cos you get 10% money back via that.

      Guessing you've already booked up though?

      • Milky1985

        7 years ago

        tbh i think 10th is the best idea, leaving on the 9th could make things a bit rushed and if stuff does happen you miss out , if leaving on the 10th if nothing happens then sod it, will probably need sleep by then :P

        But i'm a sheep so if everyone else leaves on the 9th i'll follow :P

      • cat5cable Incompetent

        7 years ago

        I'm the same man, I booked my hotel till the 10th but i can easily change that;

        We could just go really hard on the 8th to make up for not doing the 9th? =D

      • Milky1985

        7 years ago

        Think i'll aim tomorow for that 7.45 one then , not sure when to come back yet tho but will make an executive decision on that one , might miss some fun stuff monday night but might be better to come back and break myself less on the 9th :P

      • cat5cable Incompetent

        7 years ago

        ahh yeah I saw that last week. its a dud you can't book any of the flights you get a sorry this flight isn't available message.

        Kick in the dick really cos a £500 odd flight would have been awesome

        good thing about BA/AA is we can book our specific seating before we launch so we could get a row of just rooster teethers.

      • cat5cable Incompetent

        7 years ago

        Its the one I want to be on as well for all intents and purposes too!

        I'll throw up a post on that thread I linked to see how many of us will be joining us

      • Milky1985

        7 years ago

        I plan to do all of my booking tomorrow but that looks like a plan, probably leave around midday on the 10th , gets back here at 6 am so jetlag central but worth a shot :P

      • Milky1985

        7 years ago

        oddly just checked BA and that is the flight i saw and plan to put myself on :P

      • cat5cable Incompetent

        Oh and that'll arrive at Austin at 15.30 (with a 2 hour connection in chicago)

        Pyro1099

        thats everyone thats mentioned they'd interested in coming with. Right now the only 2 who are certainly going to fly out together are myself and Accipita.

        I'm gonna be trawling through flights today; wey've not decided on flights yet cos we're all trying to converge on London from different parts of the UK (Me from Glasgow, Pyro from Cardiff)

        Though the flight i've got in mind is the AA flight 7.45 out of heathrow going via chicago - its a £760 return flight from london (leaving on the 5th and coming back on the 10th)

        If i fly back on the 9th i'll miss the end of the sidequest stuff so think i'll go back day after :P

        You got hte details on the fligths tho, where from and to and who with?

        Last time i went heathrow - dallas - austin with BA.

        Have a look at the forum about it man, as some of us flying back on the 9th.

        I'm flying back on the 10th. Hotel cost too much for me to take that trip to vegas.

        No not booked up yet, planning on doing that tomorrow (need to get the holiday signed off by the boss before i book the hotel, can eat the cost of a ticket if i can't get the holiday, flights and hotel might be too much :P)

        Will look into that thursday flight tho if you lot are coming back on tuesday (as that is the plan for me), i live in london anyway so getting to heathrow is easy.

      Yes sorry but unfortantly its been a very eventful week. I found out on the 22nd that I had to move out of my flat within 2 months or pay basically £1K a month rent.

      So i have been flat hunting etc and sorting out a new place all week. Am moving in next weekend so will likely not upload anything for a bit while i try to get everything sorted in the new place and everyhting packed up from this one!

      Will sort it out sometime but its not going to be a good couple of weeks comeing up.

      That sucks you two got on different buses. I got to meet some people from the site too. That would be funny if we did meet and realized it. Good luck on trying to get that guardian status.

    • Milky1985

      8 years ago

      Haha yeah was great fun there, well worth the trip and jetlag (and annoying person next to me on the flight back) .

      yeah was a shame about that , all of the attempts to meet people on the site kinda failed (was meant to get a bus with Nova5 but we ended up getting different busses to the same place, and still didn't see each other afaik!) but ended up meetnig loads of others instead, so we may have met and not realised :P

      And yep always next year, might sign up for a ticket and put myself up for being a guardian as well for next year, mix things up a bit!

      Yeah there are two secret bosses, Vanitas' Lingering Spirit and Mysterious Figure. VLS is in the Keyblade Graveyard. MF is in the Land of Departure.

      If you do bring your KH:BBS, do you want to do a couple of rounds in the mirage arena? Kill some time at RTX when we're not hanging with the staff.

    • Milky1985

      8 years ago

      Ohhh no I didn't know about the secret bosses (don't think i beat him anyway) on there, thought there was just some stuff in the arena or some JP only stuff.

      Sounds like a perfect way to spend my flight time to RTX trying to beat them all without being cheap :P

      Nice. I always choose the one where leveling up is easier the the beginner. Before that, Where you have to mess with the shield, sword, and staff. I would chose where your stats would be the same amount when you start out.

      Yeah I kinda think so too. I think when I was trying to beat it, I was under leveled. So i got mad and quit(which this was like few years ago).

      I've got it too. I'm on Terra's story, at the Coliseum or Neverland. I cant remember at the moment. I kinda think that goes with any game you play for the first time. Then after going through it once, you know what to do the next time around.

      Have you got to face off against the secret bosses in BBS, yet? I've read they're pretty hard to beat, like Vanitas' Lingering Spirit.

    • Milky1985

      8 years ago

      Yeah i got him on both KH1 and 2, tooks lots of leveling up and a fair bit of cursing to get him down. But i choose the "To dawn" option (i think it is anyway) at the start of KH 1 so my leveling at first was more difficult but a lot easier nearer the end of the game deliberatly :P

      Think your quite far into KH 1 then if your at that point, proper keyhole sealing moments.

      Yeah have played and finished birth by sleep, actually a very good game, the new skills and skill combining system works well. The last boss of terras story on BBS was really really hard for me the first time round for some reason, managed it a lot easier when i played it through again, dunno why. Was kinda like playing KH 1 , found that really difficult the first time on proud but now can blaze through it :p

      I haven't got to him on proud mode yet. I think I'm at the part where you fight the Opposite Armor, in Transverse Town, on KH1. I haven't even tried on KH2. Have you got you play KH: Birth by Sleep?

      I'm pretty sure that it was Chaos at the end, 'cause his second form kept beating the crap out of me a lot. That's hilarious, that they did that to you. That makes me remember fighting Sephiroth in Kingdom Heart 1, for the first time. I survived like 15- 20 seconds as well.

    • Milky1985

      8 years ago

      Did you beat chaos at hte end of shade impulse, or at the end of the optional dungeon,?cause the first one was easy, the end of the optional dungeon took me literally a week of attempts and i got really good at dodging his attacks, except his stage 3 ones (he was level 110 so he always had an advantage on you)

      I actually fought the new optional chaos already on the new one, i imported my save and reset the character levels but there was an option during the startup when tis asking you questiosn and i selected the "i'm good at the game" option.

      It then put my level 1 character against the new optional chaos at level 100 (it had around 30k HP). I survived 15 seconds :p

      I fought the Omega Weapon so many times and die. I found a few ways to increase my chances to beat him(like using Holy War). Yeah, you had to ring the bell with one group. Then, you go to the green aura to transfer to the other group, in the area with the fountain. Prepare to fight him in the organ room. My team that fought him with is Squall, Zell, and Rinoa at LV.100. I hate him with a passion.

      Well that's kinda disappointing that there's no new villain in it. I remember beating Chaos on the first one, with Cloud, on my girlfriend's world. It take a few time, 'cause she hadn't unlocked all of Cloud's abilities.

    • Milky1985

      8 years ago

      Never beat omega, couldn't be bothered leveling 6 characters (cause i think you had to ring a bell with one group or somethign like that), had enough trouble leveling 3 of em :P

      No , there are no new vilian characters , just the 6 new chars from various games, but there is a new special chaos who is playable, not unlocked him yet however.

      That's cool that Lagunas is in the game. FF8 is the game that I've got to beat all the way through. Well except beating the Omega Weapon smiley4.gif (If you know who that is). Is Seifer on the villain side of FF8 on Dissidia?

    • Milky1985

      8 years ago

      Yeah the new one is a great improvement on the first one, some of the harder to use characters have got a few nicer abalities (although it does make fighting exdeath a lot harder, cause hes much more capable of hitting you in the face now :P)

      Lagunas a fun charcter to play (but i liked him in FF8 so a bit biased) , i think he will be useless if you are playing against other people but fun against the AI. Not so hot on lighting as changing her paradigms is a bit fiddly due to the controls for me.

      The new game has the story of the origonal in it (you play it once you have completed the story with the new characters) but its been switched about a bit and the 10 characters stories link up a bit more (and oddly it seems a bit darker), the way you play is a bit different as theres now a world map to run about and the grid system saved for "gateways" (basically dungeons) so you don't have to fight things in specific orders to get items any more.

      If yuo liked the first one i would recommend the now one but the second one but it will feel quite similar due to basically playing through the same campaign again. The optional end dungeon however is VERY different to before.

      Basically its a lot improved but its more of an expansion than a full game release!

      Random but have you got to tryout the new Final Fantasy: Dissidia? I've got the first one and liked it. Just to see if the second one stands up to the first one.
