Over the weekend, a Final Fantasy VII player who goes by the handle CirclMastr got Cloud and Barret to level 99, which isn’t particularly impressive. What’s impressive is that he did it before the game’s first boss battle.
Um, cool, hope he got paid for it.
These lame gamers stuck it in the past. Get with the times, sheesh.
Yeah i woud prefet stuck with ffvii better than play xiii, mass effect, destiny or COD
Yeah he would have been so much better off at the 2nd reactor because at least you are leveling up 4 different materia them and have access to change them in the menu also and can level up Tifa's Limit Break too. What a noob.
Yes. Lets get with the times. Pay for DLC. Buy unfinished or broken games. Gotta love the times.
I think my point would be, no matter how good the game is, spending 500 hrs of fighting the same enemies over and over in the same place and not experiencing the game is a waste of time, UNLESS you're proving a point, broadcasting it, and getting paid.. and I do think he get something out of it. But I see people doing this for absolutely NOTHING and they ENJOY it, which boggles my mind, I'd rather put those hours in to enjoy other awesome games. He didn't need to prove anything, though, getting to lvl99 in the first reactor was never though to be impossible, just extremely slow and boring.. he just proved that someone is determined enough to do it. I think beating a game with DDR control is way more of an achievement.
Go play Ass Effect Andromeda or Asscreed Syndicate.
Wow, look at those downvotes lol
Well at least I feel better about running around in Breath of The Wild farming apples.
Must of been extremely bored.
I run around one area to level up a few times just to be ahead of my expected level in big battles. However, this would be extremely tedious and extremely boring to say the least.
Must have** and yes, he must've been.
When you got a cheat for god mode in the Steam/PS4 version who needs to be high leveled?
those who dont cheat
Cuz spending time being beyond overleveled is much better use of your time than simply pushing a button that pretty much guarantees a similar result
Must've taken forever
Be funny, if he had started when the game was released and now is when he got to it
500 hours he said, I would have thought it would be longer tbh.
Thank you for not saying "must of". That's easily the most common grammatical error I see on a daily basis.
Definitely does not have a job.
It took him around 500 hours over two years, it was less than an hour a day. Regardless, that would be mind numbingly boring.
Classic OCD case...
Do you always believe everything you read?
Artemidorus Well unless there is something to show he's lying i don't see why he not.
what a mission
*Insert Ryan Reynolds "But...why?" gif*
His reasoning was even more lame than the "accomplishment."
Already been done seven years ago at least. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Done b4 that on gamefaqs around '99-'00 too
Did he start this in 1997?
why is this impressive? it's an RPG and apparently way too much time on his hands... anyone could easily do this... however the spare time I have isn't worth wasting on something like this.... Hope he had some kind if trick to do it...
Wow; define "grind."
Given that he'd have no access to good weapons or materia what kind of damage would he be dealing out of interest? Would it be 9999 per attack regardless?
“Life does not have inherent meaning; to say that our lives are pointless and our achievements meaningless is to state the obvious. No matter how grand our achievements or how broad their scope, time turns all to dust and death destroys all memory. But that does not mean we cannot ascribe our own meaning to what we do. It is because nothing has meaning unto itself that we are free to create meaning, to make metaphor, and in doing so reflect on ourselves and our world. Leveling to 99 in the first reactor is pointless and meaningless. So why do I do it? I do it to express my hatred, and more importantly my disdain, for Dick Tree. I do it to express the camaraderie I feel for those of us who have followed this topic for years only to be disappointed by [Dick Tree]. I do it to prove to myself that I can persevere. The act is meaningless; I give it meaning.”
I'm not saying that everything I do is worthwhile but this really was a waste of time. If he'd put the time and effort into something else he could have learned a new craft or a new language. I saw him say that it's a case of each to their own but if that's the kind of thing that gives him genuine life satisfaction then I don't believe he has experienced life at all.
Cloud = level 98 You lying son of bitch!
I hit level 99 before you seen the snake that sephroth killed, this was before YouTube and just for my own satisfaction. Probably year 1999...lol
This is what happens when you don't have a girlfriend.
2 years ... i can't imagine how many good experiences he missed just to get "Famous" for 10 minutes
More importantly...why did he name the characters Dick and Tree? WTF?
On a side note, is it worth getting the remastered version of FF7 for my PS4 rather than wait years for the remake? I've still got the original for PC but have never finished it and do love how far Iv'e gotten.
I remember there was a great levelling spot in midgar in the train tunnel, bunch of high rank enemies keep popping out of a door. It was a great way of unlocking the party's level 3 limit breaks & random enemies dropped healing items a screen away.
Wait what? How old is this? I remember hearing someone did this a few years back.
this would be somewhat useful if you couldn't easily do this with cheats already
Reminds me of that South Park episode where they played World of Warcraft leveling up to max using only the sheep in the starting area. Well good for him, now he finally gets to play the game.
