I love video games, and whenever I buy a new one, part of the criteria for picking it is usually that I should get as many hours out of it as I’ve paid in pounds. I’ve had some good deals that way with some of my games lasting me well in excess of 100 hours in just one play through.
These games are usually RPGs like the Final Fantasy series. One of the ways they extend the play time is to fill the game with side quests (smaller missions that give rewards to help you out in the main story) and optional bosses. These bosses sometimes take more time to find than they do to fight, but most of the time you’ll find yourself in an epic battle with a creature far more powerful than the game’s final boss, and this was the case with the Immortal One, the ultimate optional boss in Lost Odyssey.
As you can see from the photograph, I finally managed to beat him. He wasn’t as tough as some ultimate bosses that I’ve fought in other games, but he was still tricky and took quite a bit of extra levelling up and ultimate weapon acquisition before I was ready to face him.
Sometimes you reach a moment like this in a game and it really feels like an achievement to be proud of, yet there’s no-one around to share it with, so I thought I’d share it, and other hard earned gaming achievements here on my page with you guys. Even if none of you actually care, it’s something I can look back on later in life, and probably wonder how I could tell what was going on with those graphics.
