>hardest thing in the game is a mandatory mini game
>enemies self destruct at low hp and if you dont kill them before they explode you get no exp
Fucking hunts in FFXII did this all the time. I literally wipe the floor with them until they hit critical health. Then bam fucking extra defense, extra strength, and every attack is a 4 chain.
If he isn't then I will. That system of no HP Bar is garbage and as bad as FF8's scaling system.
