Or maybe I’ll continue writing about it to keep a log about my exploits in chocobo racing because once I’m done everything, I’m off to the races! ^O^
I already did a few with my trusty Silver Chocobo~! I messed up raising it along the way though and only managed to get its magic strength to 776. Would have liked to see it at 800 but oh well. It’s got enough stamina to last the 1800 meter races so it’s all good.
I got the Collector Catalog from one of the races and upped it to a Durable Collector Catalog. Love the amount of gil that rolls in with that thing. I’m slightly disappointed I didn’t get this before because now, I can buy all sorts of things — like those casino coins! XD
Speaking of which …
Messed up the contrast here by accident while taking the screenshot. 😦 Anyway, I started off with about ~33,300 coins — most of which were obtained from exchanging gil — and ended up with a decent profit! 😀 But look at the number of turns that was required to get the 13,200+ profit! :E
What I did for this was simply autoplay. As I mentioned in my previous post, I had to make sure that the employee next to the machine mentions that its mood was “like a hot summer’s day”. I then pushed my Dual Shock 3 controller up against the wall of the hutch of computer desk while I took off to the dentist and grocery shopping. About 3 hours later, I came back and everything I needed from the damnable slot machine was done! XD
So now, I just need Saddle Sore and Anomalous and then I’m done! ^o^ First Platinum ever!
When I went back to the Historia Crux, I got this:
Of course, the actual message wasn’t censored. I just did that for the benefit of those that haven’t seen/reached this point yet. :3
Man, it sure takes a while to get 10,000 chocobo steps. 😦 I’ve been listening to the Pulse de Chocobo for almost half an hour already. I suppose I really should have rode on chocobos more often throughout the course of the game but I wanted to fight everywhere I went so I usually had the characters travel by foot. ^^;
Oh, to hell of this. Let me go get the OTHER trophy first. This can wait since it’s not counting consecutive steps. 😛
Update: Dear lord, why are the credits so long? I could have been back on a chocobo getting my steps!!!!! Anyway, just got Anomalous so it’s back to getting that chocobo to walk into the wall at the Steppe. :3
Update #2: HUZZAH! PLATINUM’D!
