i stupid. i so very stupid.

Beat Parasite Eve. It was ridiculously easy.

You see, most of the times I can't beat a game it's because I missed something so incredibly obvious that the FAQs never mention it. It's strange...I can usually solve the trickiest puzzles, beat the hardest bosses, do all the things that people constantly pester FAQ people for--yet I get stuck because I can't find the button to an elevator or something equally stupid. In this case it was a control panel.

Geez. How was I supposed to know I was supposed to activate it? It looked like just another un-interactive piece of background to me, and it was in a dead end, no less.

In any case, once you activate that panel, the boss goes freak crazy (I have no idea why) and runs slowly enough for you to escape.

Sigh. Can't believe it took me two days to figure that out...

The ending is nicely understated. I like the music in the credits--it's this spiffy jazz tune with lyrics in Latin.

[edit] Silly me! Should have gone and looked it up first. The lyrics are in Spanish AND Latin. Oooooooooooh.
