So, do you bust in guns blazing? Or do you sneak up the stairs like a bitch?

I do both. Stairs first so I can grab the item and not have to deal with the elevator random battles, then the front entrance so I can read the Turtle Paradise poster for that side quest.

Did you guys remember to redeem all the coupons? Did you remember to punch the vending machine? Did you get the mayor's password on the first try? Did you come back during the raid on Disc 2 and grab Cait Sith's ultimate weapon?

I sneak up the stairs, and once I'm up there, I go back to the 1st floor through the main path.

This way I get every item and dialogue from both paths.

I've always used the stairs. I have literally no idea what the other route looks like. I'll have to try next time I replay it.

>> No.2310093

I've done both, usually going up the stairs and then lifting down to raid the lobby.

>> No.2310095

>>2310087
I was 11 when I first played the game. I always picked the bust in option because I figured "sneaking in" still meant going through some entrance the first floor but forcing you to avoid the guards. Then I just kept picking it on each playthrough because it's what I had always done. I had a similar thing with the second floor vent in the beginning of MGS. It wasn't until recently that I finally decided to take the one on the first floor.

>> No.2310096

Blasting through the front door is WAY more entertaining, but I usually do both.

>> No.2310106

>>2310095

I did pretty much the same way in both games. I never figured out how you could go through the bottom vent without getting caught by the guard who stands right in front of it. I mean, you can just get seen and rush it (since they won't catch you in the vent anyway) but that always seemed very inelegant.

>> No.2310112

I would always sneak the stairs as a kid. I figured you don't bust in through the front doors of a heavily guarded building, it just seemed like the smarter choice to me.

I don't think I've ever actually went through the front door or it's been so long I can't remember. My recent playthrough I sneaked in as well.

I feel like a total scrub cause I don't know all the things to remember. I never even knew about the turtle paradise subquest.

Just about to go into the ancient temple at lvl 37.

Don't misunderstand. Both ways are FUN. Not the same thing as doing both ways just because they can be done. That would mean you've got problems.

I'm assuming you're not a chink. In the English and Jap games it's random for each playthrough, between either BEST, KING, BOMB, or MAKO.

The FFVII speedrun community found the best way to find it which password it is, is to go to the 'Space Dev. Research Library' on that stage (green Shelves, blue floor), and check the left side of the middle bookshelf.
If the password is BEST, the book will read: 2 Economic report: Space Dev Program
If the password is KING, the book will read: 1 Results of failed space mission "YA-79"
If the password is BOMB, the book will read: 1 Breakdown of SOLDIER members by class
If the password is MAKO, the book will read: 10 New plans for urban planning

>>2317815
I'm familiarized with both the PAL ES version and US NTSC and for the first one I can tell you straight that every single time I played (and I played FF7 a lot) the password was MAKO. That said I never ever read the books (at least not before giving the answer) so maybe that's the default answer if you don't.

For the US version I guess it could be the same since they're essentially the same game with diff. localization. Maybe in the original NTSC-J that was different but whatever, is not something big, just a curious piece of trivia at best.
