I just bought it a little while ago; that's why I wasn't here a earlier. I was playing it with my sisters and we were all Clavats. I was the headband boy, my older sister was the white cap girl, and my little sister was the long haired girl. We just started year 2 and I must say....this game is really good!
I'm having a blast playing with my sisters! The games a little confusing at first, (partly because we've never played an FF game before hehe) but it's really fun once you get used to it!

Ok, I just beat the first boss. The one by the waterfall. Is anyone past this?

If it wasn't 4 my gameboy I wouldn't have no clue where to go. I like paintin my moogle. Too bad they dont fight like on FF Tastics Advance.

So, how exactly do you get to play it with your gameboy?

It's pretty much the same way you would play it with the GC controller. The only reason you use gba's for multi-player is because you constantly refer to the menu to change items, skills and such. The same is so awesome! I just got a mithryl shield and a rune sword so I'm kicking butt! Hehe....
I'm the best toe-to-toe fighting character in my sister's and my group, but my older sister just got a design for a legendary weapon. She just needs one thing to finish the recipe (and a whole lotta money!) and then she'll be wielding a very powerful weapon.
I have to say that the boss battles are the best thing in multi-player mode. It's so awesome to be able to fight together! We really rely on each other a lot. My little 6-year old sister casts a lot of spells (hehe...cute!) while my older sister likes to fight and heal, and I just fight to no end hehe.(although I do end up holding the chalice a lot...I get used to it)
You shold enjoy this game DT, especially if you have a lot of friends to play with!

Yea. It's a gravy container or something. It's holds your crystal essance or something. It's a pain because you can only stay within a radius of it, but you can make your Moogle carry it for you. If you carry it you can't attack or anything.

I'm only at Year 3, but that's because i've beaten every boss so far more times than I'd like to count. I'm a Clevat.

Scyther5
February 18th, 2004, 07:08 PM
Well, where do you get the link, and how?
Its the Gamecube to Gba link cable, its avlible at Walmart Target and most gamestores. There used to play mutiplayer and access your Radar. To play the mutiplayer version you need to have at least two GC to Gba cables and two GBA's. The GBA acts as a controller for the first player, second, third and forth so if you want for players all your friends need GBA's and a GC to GBA cable.

Kinda Confusing, hope this helps!

I like the Clavats. The Yukes are kinda different hehe.....
Besides, I like to get in there and fight! Not cast spells!
.....water bucket hehe....it's actually the crystal chalice!
.....never thought I'd know for about an FF game then you Dakota hehe....

Ah! A person in need of help!
*cracks knuckles*
Ok!
You know how each time you beat a level and a boss, there's a tree at the end that fills up your chalice? Well, once you beat 3 levels like that, the chalice will fill completely to the top with myrrh. After you do that, you've collected all the myrrh you needed. Each year requires 3 dungeons to complete, and once you do that there is a cutscene about your adventures that year. (the stories from your journal) After that, you're back in your hometown, ready to set off for your next year!

Single player is way too easy. I think they double on attack so u can beat bosses and stuff faster. But thats the fun of it all.

I just got mythril armor, it took a while to get the money though

Yet another question by me-On the strategy giude, it says on the maps there are 3 cycles on each level, but I don't kow how to advance in the cycles.How can I got to cycles 2&3 on each level?

What cycles? I just lost twice to the Golbin boss. I'm on the verge of getting a strategy guide.

DragonTrainer
February 23rd, 2004, 05:33 PM
Well, on the strategy guides, it has a chart that has cycles 1, 2 and 3 on it, and tells you what's in them.I just don't know how to get to cycles 2&3

If I had two more GC-GBA Link Cables (and a permanent Crystal Chronicles disc) I could have 3 people play.

I tried playing it with Teara when she rented it. I couldn't keep up with everything though, but then again I don't like killing things, even on a game. Narturally Teara had a blast running around and killing things while I tried to stop her.

Good ol' Teara! Hehe.....
I'm practically the tank compared to my sisters. I do all the action things since I have the most life, strength, and defense. Unfortunately for my older sister, she tried to get a lot of everything and thus, isn't as good as me when it comes to power, and isn't as good as my sister when it comes to magic. I've been in that situation before, so I decided not to do it.

Oh and Becky, don't think about it as killing things, think about it as putting them out of their misery hehe.....

Putting them out of their misery? But some of them are cute, like the little things that pop out of the ground and look a little like raccons. I don't think I'm cut out for this game...I guess I'll stick to games like Pokemon where nothing dies. But the graphics were really good...when things wern't dyeing.

But they're evil! I can imagine it....

Teara: Becky! They're hurting you! Kill it!
*Teara kills it*
Hehe....

Please don't mind me saying this, but it kinda suprises me how you can like LotR, and not like something like this. I'm kinda confused hehe....

How about......making them faint! Just like in pokemon!

That sounds about right. But I like LotR because they killed evil nasty things, and I'm not the one killing them. And really I'm not sure if that counts since I cried alot in those movies. Maybe if they did something like a spell that just froze them while you leave, instead of killing them. Than I would like the game alot better I'm sure.

Well, somethings in that game can get pretty evil and nasty too! I've bet you've only scratched the surface of the game! I actually cried at the end of all the LotR movies too! (I watched the Return of the King on sunday for the third time and I still cried!) There's nothing really graphic in FF:CC though, so you shouldn't be too shaken up. Even my sisters, the animal lovers, are playing the game and enjoying it. It's just a game anyway! Hehe...

I'm not really shaken up, I just don't see anything fun about watching little things curl up and sizzle away after you whack them with a racket. And I've played the LotR game in two player mode with Teara too, I just followed her while she beat the patooties out of everything around. Oh dear, I'm starting to sound really strange.

DragonTrainer
March 15th, 2004, 02:48 PM
Never mind.Well, you see,every 2 years after you get a drop of myrrh(sp?) at a certain spot, the myrrh will grow back, and you can go back to the same level to pick up a drop of myrrh, but only every two years.There are 3 cycles:in the 1st cycle, it is just the regular first time you go there.In the second time you go and get your second myrrh, the monsters get stronger, and the level boss become stronger.Same with the 3rd cycle, except he gets new attacks and things like that.Of course, you can get more than 3 drops at the same spot, just the boss or the monsters don't change any after the 3rd cycle.Hope that made sense ._.

I think he means in each cycle the four sets of artifacts the bosses drop changes, which is true. They also start dropping high-end reagents for making the best equipment. The crab for instance drops something needed for the best Clavat weapon.

Oh! The ancient potion? I need that thing!
....has anyone gotten to the final boss? I fought him alone with out my sister's help, (hehe) and I did fairly good. The part where he starts shooting at you like crazy is where it got me. I really want to get the legendary weapon (Excalibur) before I beat the game though!
Right now I have the Defender, saintly shield and armor, and a flame bagde.....

The Excalibur is inferior to the Dark Weapon, Ragnorok. I have it, it's quite nice. ^_^; Very very difficult to make though. You need the scroll from cycle three Lich at Rebena Te Ra, the Cursed Crook from the Goblin Mage at Goblin Wall, and the Ancient Sword from the crab in the River Belle Path. Took about six or seven years to make. o.x;

Really? That's odd.....what's the use of calling it the legendary weapon if it's not the best?
....you wouldn't happen to have the player's guide would you? Hehe....
Hmm, well since my sister has Excalibur, I'm gonna show her a thing or two and get the Dark weapon....or try at least!
You're a clavat? Which did you choose? I'm the headband kid.

Don't you guys think square enix did a "coulda been better" job with FFCC..I mean they made ff10, couldn't they have made FFCC a lil more better...

that's my opinion, you know it's good when I use words like "more better"

BOO ya!

Kairi
March 16th, 2004, 03:37 PM
Squarenix didn't really make it, their "Game Developers Studio" did. It's no X, but it's a nice diversion nonetheless. And I'm the basic female Clavat. ^_^; Named Rikku! Notice how Selkies are just like the Al Bhed? nomadic race, live in the desert, have their own language...

And if so can you really tell that much?

I'm only playing single player, but the game's still ace. It's not an epic tale like those seen in the numbered FFs, but it's a fantastic addition to the series nonetheless.

I'm also liking the FFIX-ish atmosphere to the game.

Definitely. The single player game is perfectly playable, and you miss out on absolutely nothing.

I dunno in what regions they did this (maybe all?), but I got a GBA/GC link cable with the game anyway, although it's useless on its own because you need two.
