Needs an achievement for your party consists of the 8-Bit Theater gang.

Very happy to see there's no achievement for "beat the game with all white mages" or whatever absurdity.
15 Aug 21:00 2017

@KevinCarbonara It should be called "Four white mages? That'll never work!"
15 Aug 21:36 2017
KevinCarbonara
No, I'm perfectly happy to play a game without gimmick achievements

Personally, I'm always a bit disappointed when you can get every achievement just by playing the game normally. The achievements I like best tend to be ones that make me do something I've never done before.

That being said, I don't like the idea of an achievement that requires replaying the entire game just for it. I feel that the four white mage thing can keep its place as a leaderboard because of that.

I don't think RPGs should require multiple playthroughs unless the game actually encourages it, like Chrono Trigger

Missing the obvious one: Defeat Chaos with a party of all White Mages

SHH! We can't have that because it's gimmicky!

Still great 30 years later

I'm fine with achievements encouraging multiple playthroughs. They encourage replay value.

Anybody else getting an error every time you load the rom where it tries to unlock all earned achievements for the game?
25 May 3:27 2018

I would think a more generic achievement for a playthrough could work. Like beat the game with all mages (red white and/or black), or win with no mages.

We're already forced into a specific party for the achievements there if we want them all in one run. That's already shaky ground.
