    Go ahead, then. :3 Are you using Sentinels? SENx3 paradigm = you can survive freaking anything. So if it uses a special attack...

    By little ones do you mean Adamanchelids or Adamantortoises? Adamanchelids made me cry when I fought the one in Eden, but they're not difficult now - haven't tried beating Adamantortoise without Death. What can I say, I'm a wuss. I challenged a friend to beat those and Neochu, with her refusing to use Death and me refusing to use the Combat Clinic paradigm and no, sorry, I'll just go with Death when I can. Even if it took me HOURS to beat the first Neochu.

    I really need to start farming for equipment upgrades. I only have two second-tier weapons and one of those belongs to Vanille, so... really, one, and I've only bothered to upgrade one other one at all. I'll probably wait until after I five-star the missions, though, since higher-level weapons reduce target time.

    I heard about this (heard some rumours about 360s, too). Sucks, doesn't it? =/ Dunno what Square's going to do about it.

    Hmmm, I beat the Neo-Ochu without Death, or the combat clinic. I used Lightning's summon to take out the little ones and then hammered away until he died. He did spawn some new little ones, but died before they could overwhelm me.

    I did feel really bad about the first Adamantoise that I killed. When they fall over and stare at you with the big eyes, it's a bit like you're hammering away at Bambi's mom. Same problem that I had with Shadow of the Collosus - I felt bad playing it. At least I got over it quickly in FF.

    From what I've heard about the machines dying, it was mainly due to overheating issues and it mainly affected the older machines. As for doing anything about it, well Square seems to be blaming the hardware and Sony seems to be blaming the software. Buck passing ftw.

    Oh, yeah. I just remembered. Who here has beaten the Cactaur - the big one in the hunt? I can survive for a while against him, but I just can't take him.

    For these damn turtles, I still need to upgrade my exanima protective items, can't beat them with half the team stunned...

    Yeah I know, after playing Ico I looked forward to SoC, but had to stop, just couldn't bring myself to commit such crimes (don't play GTA, obviously)

    The first one, or the second one? It's... REALLY hard. (I actually beat the second one with random instant-chain, though, not Death. Still the same kind of thing, though.) I couldn't take out the little ones even with a summon, personally; how did you do that? =/ You have to get into gestalt mode almost right away because holy shit you will not last. Unless Lightning was a Sentinel, I guess - that might work?

    My friend also beat it without Death but it took her quite a while. XD

    I already feel like crying. >_<

    ...Huh. So the conclusion is that PS3s suck? Kidding, but wow, that sucks. I've heard that it's happened to some 360s, though, and that it SEEMS to be Square's fault even if no one is actually doing anything about it...

    Oh, yeah. I just remembered. Who here has beaten the Cactaur - the big one in the hunt? I can survive for a while against him, but I just can't take him.
    Ew, he's pretty tough. I know of two strategies to beat him. One, get an instant chain off on him really fast and he goes down. (Requires luck and the synthesized ability to do so.) Two, what I used, is a Sab/Med/Sen strategy - Snow can take quite a few hits of 10,000 needles as a Sen, especially with healing. Daze him with a Sab, then switch to, like, Comx3, attack him once, then switch back. Takes FOREVER but as long as your party leader isn't so unlucky as to get hit with a few of those attacks at once despite having a Sen using Challenge, you can do all right. A synergist adding some buffs and ENFIRE would probably make it go faster.

    (Just don't use Lightning as your party leader if you're going to do that. When I tried that, she went down in like two hits. Fang could at least take two 10,000 needles while still standing and waiting for the Medic to do its work.)

    Oh, er, good point. Do they daze you?

    Cool, thanks. I'll try that out on the Cactuar. Actually, since my ps3 died and I lost my save games, I guess I'll start again. I'd intended doing that anyways.

    Here's the thread on the dying ps3s - http://boardsus.playstation.com/t5/F.../td-p/45382189.

    I'm not entirely sure how a disc can kill a lazer, but then again, I'm not much of a hardware expert. I've checked around and seen similar threads for MGS4, Unchartered2 and GoW3. Not going to worry about this stuff then.
