Final Fantasy VII Log 8 – A Name Is Revealed

We resume our adventures in the saucer area in our wonderful vehicle. I drove around a bunch and in circles a lot just grinding out a few levels for the hell of it. Okay not really mostly it was to earn some cash.

Finally I wandered over to this weird looking wreckage in the middle of a forest. Of course it was Gongaga Village – now Gaga Village because it makes me giggle. I ran into Rude and Turk here and had a nice little battle and yes I managed to defeat them both. I also saw Scarlet who left me a sweet materia. Then I talked to the people around the somewhat abandoned village.  I picked up some more loot as well.

Back to the buggy I headed towards Cosmos Canyon. Time for me to let ya’ll know how silly I was. I started this part went through all the motions even into the cave and had to quit because I didn’t equip the right stuff for my guys etc… This resulted in me getting a guide up and pretty much is exactly want I plan to follow for the rest of my adventure to avoid these situations. In some ways this mess up was awesome because it allowed me to go level up a little bit more before fighting Gi.

Alright Cosmos Canyon was pretty awesome. Loved the layout of it felt like it looked really cool. I really enjoyed the reveal of Red’s (Susie) past aka his name being Nanaki and his whole family situation. I liked seeing that bit into his past along with the little details about AVALANCHE and the ancients. Anyways I restarted the talk to everybody process upgraded my guys for the battle (Cloud, Yuffie and Susie). I battled as much as I could in the cave collected all the chests, but one thing kept bugging me. How the caves look… I will leave it at that though.

Finally I reached the location of Gi and laid down some ass kicking! I honestly didn’t know if I’d survive the first round of this fight or not. I managed to kill him with little issue (woo hoo leveling up and proper gear). After I saw the heartfelt ending to that was incredible!

But now I’m off to pick up my next party member 😀
