ugh. that section was annoying. you have to find all the ankhs by battling the spirits or whatever that appear by the gravestones.


gravestones?

is it? I'm not remember right, maybe. But I went down a well. So I'm like a cave under the well. The next screen is a body of water too deep to pass.

it sounds like you missed something and may need to backtrack. if they're asking you for an ankh and you don't have any you can't progress. you need 6 ankhs.

I think this is what happened, but I think I'm stuck and not able to backtrack. I'll try again with fresh eyes/brain tonight I'm sure.

if I stumble upon the PSP version for cheap, I'll probably grab it to compare/contrast the two ports.

I went there first too, you can backtrack. Theres an area just before that leads to that, and also two seperate areas containing 3 tombstones each. Thats where you get the ankhs.

The damn puzzle with them is more irritating though.

yep. I backtracked. Seems like a maze. I'm not thrilled about mazes.

I beat it about a week ago. I think I was too mean to all the girls as I got an ending not geared towards any of them. I enjoyed it and it made a car ride with my buddy down to Charleston seem like no time. Too bad I don't own an SP so I wasn't able to play it on the way back in the dark. Inebriated Riviera playing after a house show would have been interesting though (on second thought that seems like a terrible idea).

I wrote about two pages of observations, raves, and critiques but seeing not many have finished it yet and others are just about to begin their journey through the promised land, I deleted all that and will share my thoughts at the end of the month.

I had fun playing the game and suggest any interested parties play through the whole thing. I leveled up all my weapons and wrote down all the stats in a notebook so that I could put together Riviera dream teams. This tacked on some extra hours on my end and resulted in a 31 hour game for me. So yeah, this game has it's pros and cons for sure. I just started playing Mother 3 (translated of course) and can already tell it's going to be the more well rounded game (not that there was going to ever be a question about that).

I'll show you the power of magic! Cinder Squall!
