Wild Arms 2 Part 40: A Farewell to ARMS

Previously on Wild Arms 2: Liz & Ard only appeared in 10% of this Let’s Play. It has been an abject failure.

But now we’re in the final chamber of the final dungeon, so maybe we can turn this whole thing around.

And some dude is talking!

Oh, sweet. Guess we just have to do some punching and we’ll be home in time for Jeopardy.

Unfortunately, Irving’s brilliant plan has already hit a snag: the Kuiper Belt is too much for the vessel, so it is growing uncontrollable, physical roots.

So, anyway, new mission…

Wild Arms 2 Part 14: You’ve Gotta Blow Sometime

Previously on Wild Arms 2: Tim gained the power to speak to and summon the very gods themselves. Now it’s just a simple matter of telling the village elders, and the rest of the update will probably be a pizza and ice cream party.

I can almost taste that pizza!

As a thank you, the party receives a bunch of heal berries of various sizes. I want to say this is the first time ARMS has been tangibly rewarded for completing a mission, but it’s also kind of a gameplay concession because you’re pretty locked into the next big chunk of game.

Oh, also, because my inventory is fully stocked, it makes the prize look… a little less thrilling.

Baskar is a remote village, so I suppose it will take a while for the pizza to get here.

“Also, this bed is made of bones!”

So Tim decides to take a little stroll, and overhears a bit of conversation…

Wild Arms 2 Part 13: You’re a Wizard, Timmy!

Previously on Wild Arms 2: ARMS picked up some random rocks, and now their home base can freaking fly! Vwoooosh! Where can I pick up some ancient technology? I’ve always wanted a mobile Custard Hut.

And we also picked up Tim, the little orphan boy that just found out a local castle is airborne and he can talk to gods. Oddly, these two facts are not related.

“… by anyone that isn’t immediately in this room.”

“Here is where you were born.”
“Neat.”
“Wanna talk to gods now? How about now?”

Wild Arms 2 Part 05: Magicians and Monsters

Previously on Wild Arms 2: Ashley menaced a cat and transformed into a literal monster. These two events are probably not related.

We now rejoin our hero tromping around the Sword Cathedral. Ashley is white, every other monster is green. This is… yes, I’m pretty sure this is racist.

So, important stuff to know: you have full control of monster Ashley, and there are other monsters wandering about. “Talk” to one of the monsters, or even just gently nudge against one, and…

Battle transition! Yes, WA2 has “bump into monsters on the map to initiate battles” capability, but decided to go with a random encounters system anyway. As someone that dislikes random encounters, I say boo.

That’s a good question, Ash!
