You can only go in there if you lose the submarine game. Which almost no one does. --- "In peace, vigilance. In war, victory. In death, sacrifice." ~ The Grey Wardens http://www.trueachievements.com/mygames.aspx?gamerid=71900
What is the reason given for going to Bugen's laboratory in that case? Just curious. --- Gamefaqs has taught us that academic fields like literature don't exist because of teenagers that say "well that's just your opinion and I disagree."
Erm... I don't remember. For such a popular game, I don't think very many people have done that. I'm playing through on the PC now, I'll make a separate file and see when I get there, unless someone answers before me which they probably will. --- What senses do we lack that we cannot see and cannot hear another world all around us? -Dune
The reason for going to see Bugen's machine wasn't related to the Huge Materia in the first place. They went there to ask Bugen's advice about how to save the planet. They just happen to decide to leave the Huge Materia there as an afterthought. --- http://www.geekologie.com/2008/08/25/ninja.jpg phiefer3-I must be a glutton for punishment but I'm going to attempt to edumacate the Veghbot
To better inform the TC, by failing the Submarine Mini-game and losing the Red Huge Materia, along with the gray sub; if you return afterwards to that door you can steal Reno's Red Sub, and subsequently dognap the Shinra dog.
Perhaps my favorite ridiculous line in the game. (paraphrasing more or less)
I remember going through that door once. I fought the dog guarding the door then after the door was the Shinra sub. (the red one) and you got steal it and you could control it and everything. This was now your sub instead of the initial one. It was quite awesome. --- We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong. We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.
