So happy, and after what has to be about four hours total of that shit mini game. Now all I have left is blitzball, and the butterfly mini game.
I got my best time down to 1 second during the three hours I tried this mini game. The sheer amount of luck that it takes just to get a good selection of balloons is bad enough, but the control scheme and the fact that the birds home in on you and can hit you one after another because of them spawning in weird places is just insane. The fact that something with such shit mechanics was put into a game that people paid for is asinine. If dodging 200 lightning bolts is easier than a mini game where you ride a giant chicken, you have a serious problem with your game. Fuck chocobos!
After many failed attempts and a few hours I actually managed to do it. There’s still that damn chocobo race, but for now I’m happy.
