 The 3rd entry in the "Parasite Eve"  series I love this game for its super
 addictive gameplay 'n this is one of the recent titles that got me abusing
 my PSP in a long while. ;)

 [MY FAQ STYLE!]

 I'm doing this FAQ in  a different fashion; honestly speaking T3B does not
 really need any  kind of "hand-to-hand" walkthrough instead  I'll jot down
 effective way to kill all Twisted and High Ones and some very useful hints
 along the way.

 This  guide is a work-in-progress and will be constantly and gradually up-
 dated as I play along.

 P/S: I've a habit/tendency to use 'n for "and" and 'd for "the."

 | PERSONAE (PE%) |
 '----------------'

 • AYA BREA
 ----------
 Aya suffers from amnesia  due to a certain event that took place  a couple
 of years  back, nope, she did not hit  her head or anything like that just
 that something pehenomenal took place 'n erased her memory in the process,
 she is supposedly in her late 30s... just so you know.



 • EVE BREA
 ----------
 Aya's sister, a clone of  Aya herself after the event  of Parasite Eve II,
 Aya took Eve under  her care and adopted her as a younger sister.  I'm not
 sure how old she is supposed to be in this game.



 • KYLE MADIGAN
 --------------
 Aya met Kyle on a mission way back in 2000  in the Mojave desert, he works
 for the government  and live together w/  Aya  and Eve after the events of
 Parasite Eve 2.



 • HYDE BOHR
 -----------
 Your superior  and basically someone who gives you mission to do every now
 and then. He's mega fishy I tell you.

___________________________________________________________________________
¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 | BASIC BATTLE MECHANICS (BM%) |
 '------------------------------'

 This guide will assume the "Shooter Type" control scheme!

 .-----------------.
 | OVERDIVE SYSTEM | TRIANGLE BUTTON
 '-----------------'

 Aya's able to dive into NPCs and control them, these NPCs are mostly known
 as  "vessel"  when  a  vessel dies Aya can quickly overdive into other un-
 suspecting victim  and save  herself  from "death." You can even prevent a
 soldier's death  by overdiving into them  but you have to be quick to dive
 otherwise the dying soldier will disappear off the screen.

 BENEFITS OF OVERDIVING:

 • YOU MAY OBTAIN AN OE CHIP
 • YOUR "OE" MAY ACTIVATE (ANTIBODY AND HEALING ARE TWO EXAMPLES)
 • SAVE YOURSELF FROM "DEATH" AND SAVE SOLDIERS FROM DEATH ITSELF
 • REGISTER NEW WEAPON (PROVIDED THE NPC SOLDIER HAVE A NEW WEAPON)


 .---------------------.
 | OVERDIVE KILL (ODK) | HOLD L TO AIM AND PRESS TRIANGLE BUTTON
 '---------------------'

 Overdive Kill is only possible when you either:

 • EXECUTE A CROSSFIRE
 • HIT A TWISTED WEAK SPOT (SNIPER RIFLE IS GOOD)
 • KEEP SHOOTING NON-STOP (ASSAULT RIFLE IS GOOD)
 • THROW A GRENADE (SOMETIMES THE TWISTED MAY EXPOSED ITSELF TO ODK)

 Sometimes when you keep shooting a Twisted its health bar will glow orange
 this is a sign that it is  "weakening"  and  ODK is possible, a big orange
 triangle will flash on the exposed  Twisted in  question and it's your cue
 to go for the kill w/ ODK. Unleash your inner Shang Tsung!

 BENEFITS OF ODK:

 • YOU MAY ALSO OBTAIN AN OE CHIP
 • THE TWISTED BODY WILL INSTANTLY DISAPPEAR
 • MASSIVE DAMAGE
 • IT'S FUN TO IMPLODE 'D TWISTED FROM THE INSIDE (LIKE SHANG TSUNG MK)
 • AYA LOOKS LIKE A SKILLED NINJA WHEN SHE BACKFLIP AFTER ODK!
 • YOU FEEL LIKE YOU COULD TAKE ON THE WORLD WHEN YOU ODK!


 .---------.
 | DODGING | X (CROSS) BUTTON
 '---------'

 Aya can  dodge  with the X button I usually only dodge two times and won't
 bother with the third as she will need some time to recover and this leave
 Aya vulnerable to enemy's attack, double dodging is much faster anyway and
 definitely more effective IMHO.


 .----------------.
 | AMMO RELOADING | TAP THE SQUARE BUTTON OR KEEP HITTING THE R BUTTON
 '----------------'

 You can reload while you run you do not have to stay stationary to reload,
 also the handgun  at the top is permanent, cannot  be change or swap out +
 it has unlimited ammo, if  you upgrade and level it up and bascially never
 neglect the handgun it will be a powerful weapon... IMHO anyway. I use the
 handgun to take out the Twisted 'n Wad 'n the level goes up considerably.


 .---------.
 | GRENADE | CIRCLE BUTTON
 '---------'

 Grenade is useful  if you need to  quickly take out an Orb or to blast off
 a couple of grouped Twisted (Slackers/Wads), it may also stun some Twisted
 and  exposed itself to ODK which allows Aya to let out her inner "MK Shang
 Tsung" and implode 'em from the inside--FATALITY!


 .------------.
 | LIBERATION | TRIANGLE + X (CROSS) BUTTON
 '------------'

 Liberation is like "The 3rd Birthday's" answer to Limit Break, if you find
 yourself in a fix 'n need  a  'quick escape' then Liberation is the way to
 go, provided, your Liberation bar is at full capacity.

 BENEFITS OF LIBERATION:

 • AYA BECOMES SUPERSONIC (AUTO-DODGING & SHE'S EQUIPPED W/ ENERGY SHOTS)
 • ACTIVATING ODK IS A LOT MORE EASIER DUE TO ENERGY SHOTS
 • MASSIVE DAMAGE WHEN ODK-ING AN ENEMY

 The  only  downside to using Liberation is that after the bar depletes Aya
 is  vulnerable for a couple of seconds as she needs to recover this leaves
 her open to incoming enemy attacks, but I find that if you quickly press X
 to dodge there is a chance she will dodge right after the bar finishes and
 thus  preventing  her  from trying to recover. Or it could just be my wild
 imagination or something? Lol.

¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 | TIPS & HINTS (TH%) |
 '--------------------'

 These are tips based on my own experience! They are in no specific order.

 .-------------------.
 | LIBERATE YOURSELF |
 '-------------------'

 If your Liberation bar is full and you're dying Aya will not die instantly
 she will instead moans and jerk around on the floor -_- YOU can activate
 your Liberation and save yourself. After the bar finish depleting quickly
 find a safe spot and stay still to recover lost HP.

 .----------------------.
 | RELOAD WHILE RUNNING |
 '----------------------'

 You do not have to stay still to reload ammo you can do it while running
 but not while dodging (X button), just feel like putting this in.

 .---------------------.
 | AMMO RECHARGE POINT |
 '---------------------'

 I can't tell the difference between Grenade & Ammo Recharge Point? But my
 point is only go for the Ammo Recharge Point when you've fully exhausted
 every ammo in your arsenal I think this is basic but it doesn't hurt to
 put this in here.

 .------------------.
 | ASCENT VS. RETRY |
 '------------------'

 To ascent mean is to give the mission up and return to the CTI HQ.

 When you ascent: AYA GETS TO KEEP EVERYTHING FROM EXP POINTS, LEVEL, BP 'N
 OE CHIPS.

 On the other hand if you choose to "Retry" then the game will bring you to
 the last checkpoint but you will lose whatever you've obtained throughout
 the whole mission up to the last checkpoint where the game brought you. I
 always Ascent 'n I only retry when I am super lazy or worst to worst I'll
 just reload my game data.

___________________________________________________________________________
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

 I am playing this on "Normal" mode. I've already completed this game but I
 am starting FRESH (not NG+) again to write this walkthrough if you decided
 to play this on any other level than "Normal" and you're not getting  what
 you're seeing  in this walkthrough then most likely it got something to w/
 'd difficulty.

 Oh, this is the U.S. version of the game! I just WANT you to know.

 | EPISODE 0: SACRIFICE (00#) |
 '----------------------------'

 Watch the amazing opening and let it take your breath away ... Ahhhh! Like
 I've mentioned  below in a bit that this whole episode is just an intro to
 familiarize yourself with the controls 'n everything.

 | TUTORIAL MISSION (0A#) |
 '------------------------'

 -- AREA 1 --

 This  is a tutorial mission every one from Cray to Blank to Hyde will give
 you a brief run-down on the controls, your mission and whatnot you can run
 and fiddle around  w/ the controls--familiarize yourself if you don't like
 the  "Shooter Type"  setting then you can change the control scheme in the
 "Config" menu by pressing START, a lot of players preferred the "Action 1"
 scheme but for convenience's sake I'll just stick w/ the "Shooter."

 There'll be a lot of talking and the action won't start for a while use 'd
 "Navigator" at the top-right hand corner of the screen to see where you're
 supposed to go.

 After  the  briefing  is over a number of Twisted'll pop up, these are the
 "Slackers" variety.

 .-------------.
 | SLACKERS x4 |
 '-------------'

 There are four of 'em and they can be easily killed w/ the handgun weapon,
 they tend  to  scream  or something while "flailing" around their huge arm
 then come charging towards you. What I usually do is to shoot them and run
 backwards  (analog pad: down)  while still aiming and firing, the  handgun
 has *unlimited ammo* and you can reload your by either tapping  the SQUARE
 button or keep tapping R and Aya will reload when the magazine is empty.

 [BEST WEAPON ALERT!]: HANDGUN AND SHOTGUN!

 They're mostly weak against  Shotgun but handgun is fine as well just that
 it took a little while to bring it down w/ a handgun... what do ya expect?
 Lol. Though, I just love blasting them w/ the shotgun.

 --

 [RESTOCK POINT!]

 See the 'green swirling thing?' those are  "Restock" they may contain Ammo
 Recharge  or Grenades.  The one nearby police vehicle  is an Ammo Recharge
 point  while  the other one on the other end is a "+3 Grenade" go grab 'em
 both!  Proceed in-between  the  two police vehicles to advance to the next
 screen

 -- AREA 2 --

 .-------------.
 | SLACKERS x2 |
 '-------------'

 The moment you step in a Slacker will be there to greet you don't hesitate
 to aim 'n fire, further up a bit another of its kind will appear, same old
 thing--aim 'n fire.

 [NEW WEAPON ALERT!]: TOS 7.6CM

 An NPC here have a new weapon in his hand called  the "TOS 7.6CM" in order
 to register it just overdive into him by pressing the TRIANGLE button. Any
 new weapon will be labeled accordingly and will be orange in color! Ensure
 to keep your eyes peeled or I'll peeled it for you.

 .-----.
 | WAD | [A.K.A. "SPITTER"--HEY! THEY SPIT SALIVA AT YOU!]
 '-----'

 Wait or walk around  and a new type of Twisted will eventually spawn--this
 one is called  "Wad."  Its attack  is basically just shooting some kind of
 nasty fluid at you  (could be its saliva?)  and the effective way to avoid
 this gross thing is to hide behind  barricade or while shooting and aiming
 keep walking to the left or right, keep on walking and you  will avoid the
 saliva w/ little to no damage or just hide behind object.

 [BEST WEAPON ALERT!]: SHOTGUN

 I find them to be really weak w/ the Shotgun weapon if you upgrade & equip
 it w/ the correct components a Shotgun  can instantly kill this  bugger or
 make it exposed its weak spot and Aya  can rape it inside out, by "rape" I
 meant "Overdive Kill" (ODK), thanks!

 .----------.
 | SLACKERS |
 '----------'

 After you're done w/ the Wad our good friend the Slacker will appear next!
 Bring it down and proceed to the next screen.

 -- AREA 3 --

 .-----------------.
 | WADS + SLACKERS |
 '-----------------'

 This is where things get  a little exciting  as there  will be a couple of
 wave of enemy; all of 'em are Wads.  You  can Overdive to the soldier that
 is standing at the top to get in a better position but it's not necessary,
 just be wherever you wanna be 'n bring down all of your adversary 'n even-
 tually only ONE Slackers will pop out.

 It  may  seem a little overwhelming w/ all of the Wads spitting at you but
 you can overdive  to  any  soldiers who are talking cover and hide  behind
 barricade  until  the Wads stop spitting then aim n' fire + if you  notice
 that a soldier  is  in trouble overdive into him quickly and save his butt
 from death. I should note that the lesser the number of soldiers that died
 in a mission  the better your ranking at the end will be. Otherwise, there
 isn't a lot of strategy to provide here other than to keep everyone alive!

 Kill that Slacker and proceed to the next stage!

 -- AREA 4 --

 .-----------------.
 | WADS + SLACKERS |
 '-----------------'

 [FREE LIBERATION!]

 Hyde will urge you to use Liberation if you notice the red/pink bar at the
 bottom of the screen  directly under your "Life" bar starts "flashing" you
 can release unlimited power (temporary) by pressing  the TRIANGLE + CIRCLE
 buttons together. This bar is like "Final Fantasy's" Limit Break.

 Also, in this  area/stage your Liberation is automatically fill up b/c the
 game wants you to  experience  and acknowledge the benefits of liberation.
 So, go crazy! ;) and don't worry  Aya  will auto-dodge any incoming saliva
 thrown at her.  The way she move so smooth just like a Ninja! Don't forget
 to "Shang Tsung" all the Wads, k.

 --

 After you're  done  w/ this the Episode will end w/ an FMV and a brand new
 Episode'll begin!

¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 | EPISODE 1: A BRAVE NEW WORLD (01#) |
 '------------------------------------'

 Watch the  scene and you'll  be in the CTI HQ! There is a number of things
 you can do in here which  will be further explained below. There are three
 bosses in this one single episode, yes, three. The first can be considered
 a "mini-boss" of sort and the other two will be a huge one!

 |¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 | CLUB SACRIFICE (1A#) |
 '----------------------'

 First things  first this is  the HQ or base or whatever you wanna call it,
 this is where you will operate and  these are the few basic things you can
 do by accessing the Main Computer:

 <-ONLY THE IMPORTANT FEATURES WILL BE EXPLAINED!->

 • [START MISSION]        - Tackle your next mission.
 • [OVER ENERGY SETTINGS] - Adjust Over Energy settings.
 • [WEAPON BANK]          - Buy/Change/Customize Weapons.
 • [PROTECTIVE GEAR]      - Change protective gear.
 • [CASE TRAINING]        - What? You can level up by revisiting the past!
 • [LOAD/SAVE DATE]       - Save or load your progress.

 [OVER ENERGY SETTINGS]

 Sometimes when you  overdive into an enemy (to Overdive Kill) you may gain
 an "OE Chip" this also applies to overdiving in an NPC but it's kinda rare
 - access this section to adjust, manipulate and install the  chips onto an
 DNA board, there are various "Energy" to be had and to be discovered but I
 won't  bother  covering them here since another FAQ author  has a guide on
 that I strongly suggest you to refer to that.

 [WEAPON BANK]

 Buy, change 'n  equip your weapon.  In order  to  register or purchase new
 weapons you have to either:

 • Overdive into an NPC w/ a new weapon!
 • Complete a mission
 • Of course have ample BP :P

 If  and when you have a new weapon to fiddle w/ the game'll inform you, no
 worries.

 [PROTECTIVE GEAR]

 Allows  you  to  change your wear, currently on Normal difficulty there is
 only the  "Black Leather"  and "White Eider" as you fight the Twisted  Aya
 will  be  ravaged  and  torn  apart! So you have to visit a PC terminal 'n
 choose  to  repair  it for 30 BP.  How does a PC terminal repair a damaged
 gear? I've no idea. If you want more options beside the available two then
 you'll need to clear the game on different difficulty.

 [CASE TRAINING]

 Visit  the past 'n relive the moments as it is, battle the Twisted 'n reap
 for more EXP Points, BP  and  OE Chips.  Remember if you Ascent you'll NOT
 lose  any  progress and items you've gained throughout the mission but you
 will have to  start from scratch all over again but if you choose to Retry
 then the game will bring you back to the last checkpoint but you will lose
 all that  you've earned--EXP, BP and OE Chips. I say go "Ascent" and never
 Retry!

 [COMPENDIUM?]

 Right next to the Main Computer is the "Compendium" or whatever that thing
 is called? Where you can check the CTI Members and some key events, it's a
 good read if you bother yourself to go through all of it.

 [SHOWER SCENE ALERT!]

 Supposedly  if  you at least achieved 3 Feats you can watch Aya shower, or
 you  can  just YouTube it or something! And no... I  didn't  bother to try
 and achieve  anything just for a scene so I cannot vouch if 3 Feats is all
 it takes to view the steamy scene.

 Choose "Start Mission" when you're done customizing and stuff.

 -- AREA 1 --

 The episode opens with an amazing FMV that takes place in a club, this FMV
 also shows how Aya actually overdives-her soul basically leaves the vessel
 and Aya can be seen looking for another host to inhabit and when she found
 one she dives into it just like when you press Triangle during normal
 gameplay. Pretty cool, huh? Lol.

 Anyways...

 Yes, the first area immediately starts off with a boss battle. According
 to 'd "compendium" this beast is called Helix. He shouldn't post much of
 an issue and cab be easily dealth with, with the Assault Rifle
