So I’m learning how to snowball fight in the FFTA world, it’s probably about the 12th time I’ve done this.
I really can’t wait to do the areas where my characters can permanently die!
Bully one: Aww, man! Why do I get stuck on the weak team? We’re just gonna lose. Where’s the fun in that? Hey, Mewt. Where’s your little bear today?
Bully two: He didn’t want his precious bear to get wet in the snow
Bully three: Aww… Did your mommy give you that bear?
Bully one: What’s your problem new kid?
Bully three: Leave him alone. He’s not going to say anything anyway, He’s like a little girl!
Girl with red hair: Hey! That’s gender discrimination! And I know some “little girls” who can kick your butt!
Bully one: Whoa, Ritz! What’s your problem?
Girl with red hair (Ritz): You don’t want to be on that team, right? How about we switch? Would that be better? Lets start already!
Ritz: You should speak up. Tell them your name, at least. You can’t be the “new kid” forever!
Mewt: Sorry, Cactus.
Cactus: You don’t have to apologize, Mewt. You haven’t done anything wrong.
Ritz: Okay, Mr. Leslaie, we’re ready to go!
Mr. Leslaie: Then let’s get this snowball fight started! Ready? Gotten used to the snow in St. Ivalice yet, Cactus? It’s much warmer where you’re from, isn’t it?
Cactus: Yes, sir. It never snowed. This is practically my first snowball fight…
Mr. Leslaie: Really? Then let me give you some pointers. Ritz, could you help us out?
Ritz: Yes, Mr. Leslaie.
Mr. Leslaie: Kids with the highest “speed” move first.
Ritz: Once your turn comes around, first you have to “move.” You can only go a set distance so think first, then move.
Mr. Leslaie: When the menu isn’t up, press the B BUTTON to see your move range.
Ritz: You can redo a move as many times as you want! Ready to move? Okay, now that you’re in position, you can throw a snowball. Choose “Snowball” from the “Action” menu.
Mr. Leslaie: The green colored panels show your throwing range. Now choose where you want to aim within that range!
Ritz: If no one from the other team is in range, just “wait.”
Mr. Leslaie: Waiting makes your next turn come around quicker.
Ritz: OK… Here goes! Hyaah!
Mr. Leslaie: Once you’ve thrown, you have to choose a “facing.” Once you’ve chosen a facing, your turn ends.
Cactus: Yeah, I think so. Thanks Ritz, Mr. Leslaie.
Mr. Leslaie: Let’s get back to the snowball fight, then.
Ritz: Good luck Cactus!
