I spent so much time on this game, but I never did finish the Nine Tails. I think I got past his fourth form? He was very hard!! Marino's quicksilver form saved me from a few tight spots actually, she was easily my favourite female reploid in this game.
Marino is easily my favorite new character in the game. She's awesome and had a slick ninja/shinobi design. I never tried the Ninetails side bosses unfortunately. I don't think I level-grinded enough to ever be ready for them.
Oh god... the ninetails bosses were ridiculous. I was happy enough defeating the storyline. MMXCM music made for good studying mode, helped me ace my exams ;D I used to draw so much Marino back when my drawing skills were out of touch. Wish I still had that kind of motivation!
I encourage you to draw more then! Find some means of inspiration! I admit that there were huge monthly-- if not yearly-- lulls when I did not draw due to other work and business. More recently though, I've found new enthusiasm to draw more frequently and consistently. It's up to you in the end.
How very true! I feel bad for saying this, but I mostly feel motivated when I'm listening to really awesome music so I'm always on the quest to discover good music. When I happen to arrive at a solid track or two, I'm not really sure what happens, but I tunnel vision all my energy and thought processes to my art and just focus on it until I am mentally tired or my wrist starts to hurt. At other times, I draw the best when I am studying for an exam or interview, and I need to relax my mind away from math problems etc... and start to doodle ( I think it's because I'm not as focused so I am confident in my art, and run with wild ideas ). Looks like I have two extreme modes of drawing that I need to activate.
Without a doubt. They really did have some awesome designs. The first time I played that game, I was devastated that Spider was Redips, who also happened to be a traitor...T_T But, plot twists make for a more interesting story.
