Is there a reason why my Malice meter isn't filling up anymore? I'm near the very end of the game but for some reason the malice meter will not turn colour. Just wondering if it is because of the story line or glitch.
Up until the end of Asia, the malice meter fills up only when Yuri is in the party (which is like all the time).
Up until you regain Yuri in Europe, you gain no malice.
When you get Yuri back, you gain malice only when Alice is in the party.
Once "the dream" occurs and you are set for either the good or bad ending (okay, I'm not 100% sure this is the case if you are set for the bad ending, but I'm positive for the good), you don't gain malice any more at all. The curse at that point has been lifted/is irrelevant.
Once you return to Europe she MUST be in your party for the meter to work; otherwise you may notice (or not) that nothing will happen. And you may also note that when Alice is there the meter fills nearly twice as fast as before.
