We've all been anxiously waiting to play FFIV (I know I have), and with the release of the European DS game as of yesterday, now we can. Due to this late release date, Eyes on Plays will be extended into October. Probably October 10th. This might change though so keep an eye on this post.


Anyways, this is it! Here is the obligatory stuff.


Eyes on Plays Final Fantasy Fanatsy IV Rules


When you begin the game, please post a digital camera picture or a screenshot in this thread of your game that has your party clearly visible on the screen. You MUST do this to be eligible for participation in the Challenges; we have to be able to see the names, classes, etc. of your party so we can compare it to your finishing party, and make sure you don't just stick in a memory card or load up a save state without putting in the effort.
That's right, you must also post a picture from the END of the game in this thread with your same party being displayed. This way we can confirm whether or not you met the criteria for any/all of the challenges: what level your party is, what class they are, etc.
You CAN play the game on an emulator, and you CAN give us a screenshot of that. Just don't go talking about where you got the rom (http://www.eyesonff.com/ffmq/ffmq.rar), mmkay? ADDENDUM: Also, don't go using frameskip on us. That's just plain wrong.
You can achieve as many challenges as you want, and yes, you will be able to show off your winnings in some manner once this event is over.



I myself have not played FFIV before so the following challenges may change if another mod who knows better decides to change them. Again, keep an eye on this post.

Gold Star Challenges

* Obtain all call monsters
* Obtain pink tail
* Level 99 Dark Knight Cecil
* Single character (Cecil)
* For non-GBA(and I'm not sure about DS) versions:
LV 99 Palom, Poram, Yang, Cid, Edward or Tellah

Silver Star Challenges

* Two front/three back always formation
* Paladin Cecil only allowed to equip bows
* For non-GBA(and I'm not sure about DS) versions:
LV 99 Fusoya
* Completion of game

Good luck! :cat:

Seeing as this is the only game so far that I actually own, I'm doing the PS1 version of it :cool:

Wheee! I'ma play the GBA version. According to my other save file it took me about 11 hours to get to the moon, which is pretty close to the end of the game, so I'm not expecting this to be too time consuming. xP Those of you who can't run, though, will probably take a bit longer. :P

Personally, I'd keep this open until the end of October, so your next one is only a month long, and it'd help with your ultra long grinding challenges. Especially as long as level 99 Dark Cecil will take.

Hooray, I've started already. xP I've played for all of ten minutes. There's not much of a need for a picture, but here's one anyway:

This one of my favorite games of all time. I've probably played it more times than any other game. I've played SNES, PS, and GBA versions. This time I will try the DS version, which looks awesome.

Of the challenges I will try for the all call monsters and pink tail ones. I don't want to do any of the restrictive ones since this is my first playthrough of this version.

I'll post a screenshot later.

That's my preference as well. It might happen.

I'm considering Emulating so I can get screenshots, my question is though (without asking where to get them), how safe is it typically, to look for a download an emulator?

Found a safe emulator, although I probably won't be able to beat the game in time with my other crap, I'll try, screen shot soon ;0

Ugh, damn it! Why do we have to start this now?! I just got Mushihimesama and I want to play that! ;-;

Anyway, I'll be playing FFIV on SNES emulator (Japanese version, not FFII US).

Eventually.




Eventually. *goes back to meandering through purple waves of bullet hell*

I'm going old school and whipping out the SNES version.

I said in the last plays thread I'd continue naming my characters after EoFF people's so any volunteers go now before I'm forced to be creative with my naming.

(since I have already played SNES, PSX and GBA versions)
I'm expecting a lot of Kain goodness from this game.

As I'm not sure when I'll actually be getting the DS version, I'll just play it safe and go with the SNES version.

DISCLAIMER: All due respect to Necronopticous, I'm trying not to copy him, I just love doing Let's Plays :(

Welcome to Final Fantasy IV, where you will be following the story of Digimon's Stingmon:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_150002-1-1.jpg


And an as yet unidentified gender-neutral blond with minimal facial features.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_150007.jpg

I've only played this game briefly a good 5 years ago, and I didn't get too far, so hopefully this will be a learning experience.


Kicking off with Cecil, who I'm pretty sure is the main character, preparing for battle.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_150244.jpg


What a badass

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_150313.jpg


This opening scene is getting too long

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_150538.jpg

...is what my girlfriend cries during sex.


Kain, I remember this guy. His sprite looks like a starfish.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_150557.jpg


Getting control, I realise that my emulator sucks. This is a 2D game, for chrissakes. It can't be that complicated to render tables and chairs with a bit of transparency.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_151035.jpg


Oh yeah, team pic

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_151047.jpg


This is Rosa, whom I am assuming is Cecil's wife or something

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_151502.jpg


During my travels around the castle, Cecil starts hearing voices in his head.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_151555.jpg


Oh wait, It's just Brian Blessed.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_151606.jpg


Anyway next morning, we get rolling to somewhere I don't know because I skipped the opening scene

If only she would do this for me in real life

ATTACKING CAUSES COLD MIST

After setting the town on fire, Cecil and Kain attempt to rape a young girl.

and we end up having to take an unconscious Rydia to the hospital.

Old Manus for Admin 2009!

I'll get my screenshots later. And will there be a star awarded for the fastest completion time like in the other ones? I'm not sure if I want to play it normally or speed through it, or even do a walkthrough because my Humor Level has gone sour after witnessing Old Manus' greatness.

Alright and here we go!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-1.jpg

Really now, was that White Wizard THAT big of a threat?

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-2.jpg

In the world of FFIV, changing subjects mid text bubble is perfectly normal.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-3.jpg

And here we are. Following the story of Leeza and her best friend Lancea (Sir Lancealot) as they go out and be bad asses together. What a lovely friendship of bad assery, it'll never go wrong!

Or until Titan crushes Lancea leaving Leeza alone with a little girl...

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-4.jpg

Leeza is so bad ass she goes to sleep in her full armor.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-5.jpg

And thus the beginning of a new story of 1 bad ass and a sickeningly cute little girl begins! http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/RydiaChild-Victory.gif

Good job OM. :)

I'm playing the DS version and the only challenge I'm attempting is to complete the game. However, if I manage to obtain pink tail then that would be good.

That was a very long opening but the journey has begun.

EDIT: I'm a Dark Knight. Cool! :)

When we last left the gang, our hero committed mass murder on innocent civilians. Whatever you do, don't let the Daily Mail get hold of this game!


I decided that the theme for my character's names shall be some well known modern day philosophers.

On the quest to find the cure to Rosa's yellow fever, I stumbled across this cave, complete with all water being replaced by green powerade.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_185350.jpg


After meeting an old bloke called Tellah, 50Cent completely forgets about Rosa and decides to kill the Demon of Powerade Cave. The first place they look is in the vertical section of a waterfall.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_194900.jpg


Eventually I found the 'demon', which turns out to be a friendly octopus with a big smile on its face, probably wanting to play water polo with us or something. Definately not inflict deep anal penetration with those tentacles.

Also, it's September the 11th in FFIV land. Just saying.

Entering the ruins of the World Trade Center 1, which looks exactly like Baron Castle with a few campfires dotted about, I came across the first body of one of the jumpers. It is a chilling sight.

All work and no play has made us what we are today. To the Antlion cave!


Hell yeah, now I have a mechanised mode of transport!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_211036.jpg


The Antlion cave looks exactly like powerade cave, and indeed, every cave I have entered so far. The music is starting to annoy me.

At the top of Mt Hobs I stumbled across a Freemasons initiation ceremony. I think we're at the forced circumcision stage of the ritual.

Oh for God's sake

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_25082008_220912.jpg


So yeah I managed to get through there on the second try, and I've named Yang after the late great Business Instead of Game.

Reaching Fabul Castle, it seems that the moat has been replaced by quicksand. This smurfing emulator! http://fromearth.net/LetsPlay/Smilies/emot-argh.gif

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_133835.jpg


This is the only joke you'll see in the game, so you'd damn well better laugh.

So we learn that Baron is about to attack Fabul, and so meet the entire army at the front gates, ready to defend.

Heath confirmed for Brawl.

Since there isn't a name entry screen at the start, I just thought I'd throw in some random screenshots of the opening to prove that I'm playing the game.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v318/Miffincake/FFIV/ff4j_00004.jpg

Yes, I have.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v318/Miffincake/FFIV/ff4j_00001.jpg

Indeed and so I expect a wake-up call at 6:30 so I can 'Wake up to Wogan', a glass of chilled Fabul orange juice and my toast done as I like it. I also want a selection of newspapers, my armour pressed and my sword polished. No, not like that.

Edit: Yeah, I'm not actually going to make a fool out of myself by attempting some hilarious commentary that provides a disgusting level of insight into my psyche, I just thought I'd do it for the first post to pad it out a bit.

I feel so popular. So here comes a list of those that have yet to make an appearance in my play through.


*KoShiatar
*Demon Dude

That 5 people, and there's 9 characters I have yet to name. 4 more volunteers or else I'll start stealing names of people who post in this thread against you wills. :p

I'm going after the Sand Ruby thing as I type this. :P They should really cut the random battles in half and double the EXP or something. xP Or at least get rid of the Flans until I have a competent magic user. (One with Osmose.)

I love how Edward does more damage with his VOICE than Loli does with her stick.

[...]

So I got the Ruby and revived Aeris Rosa.

Edward and Rosa are not fitting names for these two. Gotta change 'em:

Can I also be someone? I would like to be an Internet celebrity.


can I be someone, BX2K?

I feel so popular. So here comes a list of those that have yet to make an appearance in my play through.


*KoShiatar
*Demon Dude
*GoBo
*Rubah
*Heath


That 5 people, and there's 9 characters I have yet to name. 4 more volunteers or else I'll start stealing names of people who post in this thread against you wills. :p
I'll be someone. :p

Just watched the opening movie thingy on the DS version. Pictures will hopefully start tomorrow.

Where is the nearest namingway?

There's a Namingway right in the Castle. I don't remember exactly where though.

There's also a Namingway in the town, in the training building.

Well I got a little more play time in tonight.

Our group explores the town by barging into random people's houses, and who really cares to stop them? I mean it's a bad ass and a cute little girl. No one that's who!

In one particular house it looks like Leeza ran into her girl(boy?)friend.

Leeza will break your heart yet again. ('http://forums.eyesonff.com/2501067-post15.html')

So continuing on through a cave we run into a rather mysterious old man.

Who could this mysterious man be?

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-9.jpg

Apparently DD is really an old fart. We stick him at the bottom because we don't want to be THAT close to him. He kind of stinks. ._.

Apparently we're off to some place called Damcyan. It must be fairly bad ass of a place if their damning Cyan, one of the cooler VI characters, 2 games before he exists. [/badjoke]

Carrying on we make it through a gnarly cave and fight with a relative of Kishi.

After some plot points about some guy named Golbez who is trying to usurp our heroes of being the biggest bad asses in the world, we carry on until DD leaves us and a new ally joins us.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-11.jpg

Looks like someone needs to take a trip to the local Namingway.

I'm getting the DS version tomorrow so I'm afraid I'll only be taking the one Silver Star challenge: Completion of the game.

I haven't participated in Eyes On Plays so far as I've been a bit busy over summer but once I'm back in college things will wind down.

No, seriously.

Also depends on my finances though, so just in case, would anyone care to include me using the name "rXp" please? :D

I've got a good idea; why don't I play this game, record the footage, and then spend hours upon days creating videos that no one will watch? That sounds like a good idea right?

Yeah, I'm playing the DS version at the moment, but VERY slowly. I may or may not post up my progress but since most of you won't care I probably won't.

Old Manus
09-08-2008, 05:50 PM
When we last left the gang, they were attacked by a giant eel.

Long story short, everybody but 50Cent died.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_143247.jpg

You fell off, Fiddy. You fell off.


So it's decided that Fiddy needs to become a Paladin in order to defeat Golbez. Sounds cool, it's not like I'm going to end up back at L.1 or something.

Q-Tip and Phife Dawg are assigned to help me on my quest. I've got the Jazz.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_144308.jpg


Tellah was up here too for no reason other than he had a good feeling about it. Welcome aboard!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_154350.jpg


We run into a bad guy at the summit. No really, I didn't see this coming.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_160042.jpg

YOU'VE ACTIVATED MY TRAP CARD


50Cent becomes a Paladin, which causes Tellah to learn Meteo. That's what usually happens right?

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_160908.jpg

Also, 50Cent IS BACK AT LEVEL ONE. wryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy



So we get back to Mysidia and the bloke there discovers that the Welsh National Anthem is written on the sword. http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff183/packerfanxd/patriot.gif

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_211824.jpg



Well, they're both pretty old

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_212240.jpg


We end up back in Baron, ready to take revenge on Golbez. We find Biggie in the local bar, looking folorn. He probably just read his wiki page or something.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_213308.jpg


Next, to the Waterway, which, surprise surprise, is just a carbon copy of every dungeon we've been in so far. Sigh.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_214031.jpg


Nevertheless, it's another tough one. In all seriousness, this is probably the hardest FF I've played. That or I'm not making enough effort.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_220327.jpg


Inside Baron castle, we meet Baigan, who is ready to sodomise us with his sentient snake-arms. And that's terrible.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_221338.jpg


We meet Cid, who engages with Tellah in a 'worst insults known to humankind' battle.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_223545.jpg


As we conga out of the room, Q-Tip and the Phifer both kill themselves. After all, those insults were pretty bad.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_223700.jpg


Time to rename Cid.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_26082008_224444.jpg

Because he's a 'rebel' against Baron and he doesn't 'pause' to stop talking hick gibberish. I'm good.


Next it's off to Troia, who employ the same soldiers as the ones in Baron.

So ends up somehow I lost my save files. I was severely annoyed, but since I wasn't that far I managed to redo all my progress again. Along the way I took a few more pics I found I could make witty comments about.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-12.jpg

For example this lovely scene when I accidentally had Leeza toaded. It's much more funny when DD talks to a toad. Now imagine if they were all toads how much humorous that scene will be. :D

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-13.jpg

An old guy, a bad ass, a little girl, and a tentacle monster. This screams hentai.

Anyways, when we last left our team of dwindling bad asses, we had lost the old man, and gained a girly-man.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-14.jpg

The girly-man GoBo helps us get a SandRuby to heal up Leeza's girl(boy?)friend.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-16.jpg

That night GoBo is out and gets attacked by a monster! Luckily his dead girlfriend appears to give him some helpful advice.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-15.jpg

GoBo decided to run away and hide instead.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-17.jpg

The next morning Leeza's girlfriend, KoShia, joined the group! And together the 4 went out to spread bad ass awesome through out the lands.

Eventually atop a mountain they met a man....but it wasn't a man....it was a <s>rock lobster</s> Karate Man!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-18.jpg

But wait...who could possibly know Karate here at EoFF? Apparently someone had a secret...

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-20.jpg

I wanted to leave his name entirely blank, but Namingway wouldn't let me, so I decided NoName was the next best option.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-21.jpg

That's right punk!

With that our heroes are now a party of 5, the future looks bright for our heroes of pure awesome bad asses!

So our heroes finally made the long trek to Fabul where they would bask in awesome for the rest of their days. Or so they thought! Our heroes got attacked at the castle and fought many an enemy, when all hope seemed lost a new bad ass re-appeared!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-22.jpg

But that's like....the opposite of fighting with us!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-23.jpg

Duel of the Bad Asses.

After Lancea mops the floor with Leeza, using his new skills of Evil Bad Ass, a villain bad ass shows up. Golbez, who is like Leeza + Kain + everyone else combined. Golbez quickly makes quick work of the whole party with his superior awesome skills. And before he leaves he takes KoShia as a trophy!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-24.jpg

Well that's not cool! So our group decides to find Golbez and Lancea and get back KoShia. Many dead monsters later our group is more awesome epic then ever!

Nothing can get in the way of us now!

Sagensyg's Cecil Only Challenge!
So I was speaking with one of my high ranking advisors ( Levian ) and I asked him if I should make a comedic walkthrough. He was all for it, but my Humour Skill is levels and eons behind you geniuses, so then he suggested I do a Cecil Only Challenge and here we are!

But, I like to do things my way, so It'll not only be a failed attempt at humor, but also a failed attempt at a challenge! :jess:

Sorry, the idea of a walkthrough came to me after I had finished off the Mist Dragon, but since it's necessary, here is my start-up mug shot, and here is another one of a dead Rydia, just for kicks.


Sorry for the extremely small pictures. If it's an inconvenience, just tell me. Anyway, I'll keep ya'll posted, since I had to restart I'm gonna have to high step it to Fabul xD

And so Kain offers to take care of him.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v318/Miffincake/FFIV/ff4j_00012.jpg

Told.

And so Kain gets laughed out the room.

Thankfully Scarmiglione can sort it out.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v318/Miffincake/FFIV/ff4j_00009.jpg

Just proving that he isn't a complete tosser, Golbez is even kind enough to ask Rosa her opinion.

You could take pics with a camera or with a camera phone.

Octomammoth beat the crap out of me. I need to gather my forces and retry. :(
The game is hard, but well balanced meaning that the difficulty is compensated by a lot of fun in exploring the dungeons. Too bad that not being able to change names lowers the degree of customization you can give to games.

Rantz has the most awesome dude ever!

Well then, last time on <s>Lost</s> FF IV. Our heroes were attacked by Leviathan after getting ready to mount an assault against Golbez. Leeza was left stranded.

After some exploration, Leeza realizes she has appeared at Mysidia, that place full of mages she torched at the start of the game. Ya this'll go over real well.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-26.jpg

Do I detect a wang joke? Yeah I detect a wang joke.

After downing a few beers with the Elder and talking about how Leeza torched his peoples, he pawns off some little kids on her and sends her up a mountain, saying Leeza can't be a bad ass Dark Knight anymore, she's gotta become a less cool Paladin.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-27.jpg

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-31.jpg

What?! No fair! Dark Knight is much more bad ass. It's like they wanted to mock me about how much less cool I'll be for the rest of the game. :cry:

No worries, with all my leveling on Dark Knight I should be ready to kick loads of ass on Paladin.

So it's off to Screw you Emulator Cavern to find the crystal which is under the control of the Dark Elf. You can't use metallic weapons and armour here, but regular rules of physics don't apply to your backpack.

Dark Elf greets 50Cent with a few unpronouncable sentences.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_27082008_174114.jpg


On return to Troia with the crystal, I got mobbed by a bunch of weirdos who have a habit of shouting out things that are completely random and irrelevant. I don't even know what BANZAI is meant to mean.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_27082008_195626.jpg


Upon delivering the crystal to Kain, we end up in some castle somewhere which has the double feat of not looking like every other dungeon, and being insanely difficult. Am I underleveled or something?

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_27082008_212835.jpg


Also, the Magus Sisters!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_27082008_213802.jpg


After all that hassle trying to get Meteo so he can defeat Golbez, Dr. Dre dies in the attempt. The gang ponders this for a while, ignoring Kain suffering in the corner. And indeed, LilKim, who was the reason they came here.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_28082008_175452.jpg


What

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_28082008_175544.jpg


From there it's off to the underworld, which, living up to its name, contains the worst creatures in FF, the dwarves, and their mothersmurfing retarded greeting.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_29082008_163325.jpg


ChuckD is so disgusted with this <img src="http://forums.eyesonff.com/images/smilies/rpg_009.gif" alt="skull" /><img src="http://forums.eyesonff.com/images/smilies/rpg_009.gif" alt="skull" /><img src="http://forums.eyesonff.com/images/smilies/rpg_009.gif" alt="skull" /><img src="http://forums.eyesonff.com/images/smilies/rpg_009.gif" alt="skull" /> that he bugs out back to the overworld under the pretence of fixing his airship. Alone. This can only mean that we're getting someone else on our team pretty soon.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_29082008_175259.jpg


After another meeting with Golbez, Jay-Z returns and the team enjoys a coffee and watches while Golbez's disembodied arm takes the crystal and dissappears right in front of them. They proceed to gasp in shock.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_29082008_180422.jpg


Wandering around the castle, I come across the 'Developer's Room'. This can't be good.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_29082008_181823.jpg


Then again...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_29082008_182903.jpg


16BIT PORN!


In other news, Jay-Z now has some pretty kickass summons to go with the unstoppable ChocKick.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_31082008_162317.jpg


In order to stop Golbez from stealing the last crystal, the team decides to go to his crib while he's away and steal the ones he has already taken. Clever stuff.

During the fight with one of his minions, the evil doctor Lugaborg who turns innocent people into monsters (typical german stereotyping), I totally forgot to take a screenshot until the very end.

He refused to believe that we'd just killed him though.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_02092008_180747.jpg


Moving on, we get to a room where 3 dudes are firing cannons at the dwarf tanks. Enviable position really

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_02092008_182117.jpg

<3


In order to stop the cannons from exploding, Yang sacrifices himself by locking himself in the room while they explode...or something. Seriously, what? Nobody really thought this one through. I also forgot to take a picture of it, so this will have to do.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_02092008_182232.jpg



After climbing all the way back down the tower, Golbez is back at his pad and he's pissed. So pissed that he decides to destroy the only entrance to his tower. Good thinking, homie!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_02092008_183445.jpg


In a set piece rivaling something out of The Matrix, as the party falls to their death, ChuckD comes to the rescue and catches them in the airship. He then decides to kill himself for no reason by jumping off the ship and blowing himself up. Since when was FFIV set in Bridgend?

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_02092008_183613.jpg


From there it's off to Eblan Cave, for reasons unfathomable by logical processes. The game seriously gives you no reason to go there. This smurfing game! http://fromearth.net/LetsPlay/Smilies/emot-argh.gif

The 'proud' people of Elban also live in this cave.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_03092008_161113.jpg

They're probably the only beings in FFIV who would be proud of the fact that they were homeless


This woman in the infirmary provides us with some advice she should really be giving the dying men lying next to her.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_03092008_161947.jpg


The bats in this cave are all the same size, no matter what their names say to the contrary.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_03092008_162308.jpg


From what I gather from the cavesfolk here, their prince is off to go and deliver some physical justice to a blokey called Rubicant. This prince is obviously an asshole, judging by the fact that he leaves his bodyguards to die when they get injured.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_03092008_162926.jpg


He's lying, obviously. The next room is full of even more dead bodyguards.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_03092008_163157.jpg


Turns out that the prince is a playable character. I bet he kills himself.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_03092008_164748.jpg

He's also a giant pussy at level 25, doing half the damage 50Cent and Nas do.


We end up back at the Tower of Babil, and the monsters have been doing some grinding.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_03092008_174624.jpg


At the top we run into Edge's parents, whom were presumed dead. Queue touching moment

Sagensyg's Cecil Only Challenge!
Situation: My girlfriend is sick in Kaipo. I'm looking for the cure and the only assistance I have is a dead girl, an old guy, and a wimp.

Act One | Desert Fever

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/waterway.png http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/tellah.png
In the Waterway, Cecil and the gang ( himself ) ran into Tellah, who I'm sure would've been helpful with his beasty ass HP but ...



http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/tellahdead.png
... he had to go. Old people cramp my style.

At least he heads-upped me about 'a giant monster,' but it's nothing a single Dark Knight can't handle right?


Act One | Desert Fever: Octommamoth

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/tent.png
Eventually, I met up with the beast.

The Octommamoth hurt for a little bit, but all I had to use was one potion and I swiftly finished it off with a 500 Damage Critical. Bye Kishi!


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/damcyan.png
After leaving the cave, I'm greeted with the pleasant site of watching a weak kingdom get completely OWNed by the Red Wings. Their entire force wiped out with a few bombs.

Anyway, some sissy in the castle told me that if we steal this Antlion's egg, its own flesh and blood, it's SEED, it won't attack us and it'll heal my girlfriend. Total BS. But since I'm human and I like swords, I decided killing it would be pretty nice.


Act One | Desert Fever: Antlion

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/antlion.png
The counterattack was quite the challenge, but my mighty dark skillz out-damaged its ugly ass and destroyed it.

Humans 3 | Monster 0


So I snagged the egg and made haste back to Kaipo.

There, is where that slimy greasy ball of genes healed Rosa from the common cold.


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/cecil.png http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/Rosa.png
Sparta!

It's a shame she'll be dead in just a second. After all this is a solo challenge. I feel like all my efforts were wasted ... :cry:


- And thus concludes the [ Desert Fever ] chronicle of -
Sagensyg's Cecil Only Challenge!
What does the lone Dark Knight plan on doing next? Rape and pillage a few towns? Probably!


The monsters and bosses haven't started hurting yet, so for now the game is a breeze and no grinding so far! Hopefully Mt. Hobbs will be forgiving! ._.

Right?

Yeah I had the same challenge. I even ran away from Zombies in the Waterway, but I'll find an advantage!


My ego triumphs again! The damage I do in the back row is not altered, but the damage enemies who normally hit 40s on me is instantly drained to 1! This might be easier than I thought. However easy it is until I'm a Paladin at least.

Last time on <s>24</s> FFIV.

Leeza became a Paladin and lost her awesome cool bad ass powers on top of all her levels in the process.

We go back to town and talk with the Elder. We use some kind of Star Trek teleporter thing and wind up in Baron and get ready to attack Golbez.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-33.jpg

Oh hey, it's NoName! And he changed his name to Karate. Actually I don't know if that's his name or describing what he does. Regardless we make short work of our old friend and force him to join the party so we can have a real bad ass again in the group. Someone needs to take over since Leeza lost her Dark mystique.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-34.jpg

Mother smurfer everyone is tougher then Leeza now. Damn you Paladin trials!!!! :mad2:

So we go through the sewers....caves...errr I'm not sure what they are really. Regardless we make it into the castle and run into Baigan.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-35.jpg

Smurf yes! This is hands down the coolest guy ever! He's so bad ass he can bypass the 5 party member limit! Alright time to cap some kneecaps!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-36.jpg

What? NO!

So because of Rubah and Heath we have to fight Baigan who can turn into a monster.

What a waste, bad ass knight AND he can turn into a monster and rip people's heads off. Way to go guys. Way to go.

So we don't find Golbez here, but instead run into a Ninja Turtle reject and make short work of him. We get a new bad ass mother smurfer who beats everyone else on the bad ass awesome scale and we continue on.

When suddenly the walls begin to try and crush us to death!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-37.jpg

Sage DD and his infinite wisdom astound me. :monster:

We escape that little mishap but lose the twins in the process. Oh well, our new member makes up for them both. Introducing...

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-39.jpg

Kaiser!

So we got an airship now and explore the world. Of everyone's advice this one leaves me scratching my head the most.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-38.jpg

I wasn't even aware that ants COULD be turned into steaks.

Eventually we wind up in a kingdom populated by Jess' clones.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-40.jpg

Apparently Jess quit her dancing gig and went into the arms business. What a sexy shame.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-44.jpg

What a sexy shame indeed...

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-41.jpg

I don't know where I am or what just happened to me, but god do I love it!

So we continue exploring the town.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-42.jpg

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-43.jpg

I think I found him lady.

Enough bungling around! Eventually we find GoBo who is still injured and he gives us one of his harps. Yeah, like that'll be useful.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-45.jpg

Haha good one pal. Next you'll tell me women can vote.

Though this raises the question, of White Mages vs Doctors.

Anyways we continue on and have to get some crystal or some such nonsense which was stolen by the most obnoxious person in the world....this guy!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-46.jpg

CAPS LOCK MAKES IT TRUE! :monster:

This guy is crazy easy and we get back the crystal, go us!

Apparently we have to fly up into some kind of floating tower or something crazy. Either way we decide to take a rest. Only so much bad ass awesome can be done in one day.

How do you take such consistently clear screenshots? Mine seem to be completely random. :(

I set the focus on my camera to "macro". Macro shots are extremely close shots. This way I can take clean pictures of the screen. I don't know what happens when you take pics with a camera phone, but mine has the option as far as I can remember. You seem to take pictures of your TV though. A good camera with auto focus ought to do the trick.




Sorry for the extremely small pictures. If it's an inconvenience, just tell me. Anyway, I'll keep ya'll posted, since I had to restart I'm gonna have to high step it to Fabul xD
If you're using an emulator, you should be able to stretch the window and make it bigger without losing quality. Which emulator are you using?

Note to anyone doing solo Cecil. I've tried it myself and there was a point where I found it impossible to get any further. When you have to go to the Sealed Caved in the Underworld there's monsters there that can kill you consistently in two turns. Even after grinding excessively I still couldn't take them down in two rounds. So if you manage to get that far and past that section then kudos to you.

My camera works like this: when you press the button lightly, it focuses. When wou press the button more firmly, it takes the shot. When picturing a static subject like a DS screen I always check that the camera's well in focus before taking the picture.

Actually it's the Emulator that's taking the screenshots, not the [ PrtScrn ] Button. ( I play on x2 window size, but that doesn't effect the screenshot. )

If you hate the smallness then I'll start manually taking screenshots, but you're gonna have to bear with me for a while--I already have some continuing from where I left off to the Fabul invasion, but pretty much anything after Leviathan will be larger from now on. :D

Small screenshots are no problem for me. But some emulators only stretch the window like the one you are using now, others actually augment the number of pixels used to render the graphics, which in turn lets you take bigger screenshots. One such emulator for the SNES is ZSNES. I'm not aware if any GBA emulator does that though.

<hr>Our story last left off with Cecil learning about his replacement: Golbez. And like any man, Cecil sees Golbez as a threat to his dominance of the Blue Planet and decides to go check out his next attack location and find out what this chump is really made of ...


Act One | The Conquest to Fabul

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/hobs.png
To reach Baron's next siege location however, the Dark Knight has to cross over through Mt. Hobbs. No sweat right?

Except for the undead! But the Dark Knight triumphed once again with--the Legendary Back Row!


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/hammertime.png
Hammertime :cool:

And so, our beasty one-man army OHKOed his way up to the peak of Mt. Hobbs and suddenly, Rydia spots a Monk in distress!


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/letsnot.png
Let's not.


Act One | The Conquest to Fabul: Mom Bomb

Eventually, Cecil wanted in on the action and slew the Monk with one swing of his sword and then challenged the enemies the Monk had been fighting! The Mom Bomb was no biggie but she proceeded to frenzy-breed into multiple bombs as a last resort!

She must not know that large numbers are the Dark Knight's specialty! :plotting:

I assumed my usual battle position ...





Kaaa ... meee ... haaa ... meee ...





http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/fun.png





Haaa!!!





http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/round2-1.png
Death and destruction to all! :mwahaha:

Every last one of them was instantly vaporized by Cecil's ultimate powers of darkness! Glad I'm gonna have these 1337 Skillz handy when I finish the game!

OH WAIT




Anyway, after recently tasting blood, the Dark Knight felt this emptiness. His urge to kill Golbez had grown stronger!


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/fabul.png
Cecil left the mountain and made his way to the monk castle and decided it would be fun to just wait for Golbez's attack and slaughter his troops like helpless little children.


<hr>Which brings us to: The Baron Invasion!
<hr>

Act One | The Baron Invasion

Our beasty Dark Knight decides to join the Fabul forces--with the clever ruse of helping them of course--so he can go toe-to-toe with that dastardly Golbez!


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/letzdodis.png
The front-lines stand tall in a suspenseful wait for the Baron attack ...

JOHNNY CAGE
No.5!! Bring it on!!

Our Man-Tank fought and fought, but the other shlubs couldn't hold out, regardless of the merciless genocide known as the 40-yard radius around Cecil.

So as the troops draw back, one of the weaker, more harmless ones falls from fatigue, exposing our flanks ...


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/fail.png
Talk about FAIL.

We had no other option but to retreat into the Crystal Chamber and fend for ourselves there, but all of a sudden--

<hr>A NEW CHALLENGER APPEARED: KAIN!
<hr>

Act One | Dragoon Kain

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/kain.png http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/kain2.png
"It's been a while"
"Kain! You're Alive"

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/kain3.png http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/kain4.png
"Indeed. Are you ready to face me, Cecil? Ready your sword!"


Our Hero usually doesn't turn up a challenge, but he wouldn't kill his friend! Nevertheless, they clashed! Kain had dealt a mighty blow but Cecil endured and counterattacked with his full force!


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/kain5.png http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/kain6.png
Both were colossal hits, but Kain was just too strong!

The Dragoon delivered a mighty Jump to the Dark Knight ...


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/kain7.png
and just as Kain was about to finish off Cecil, Golbez

walketh

inneth!


Un! Deux! Trois!

A man of few but gruesome words. Yang and Edward had tried to get in his way, but he blasted and defeated them with a single lightning bolt, and as Golbez leaves, he kidnaps Rosa! :mad2:


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/kain8.png
I already saved her once and I can do it again! But ...

Cecil, Master of the Abyss--defeated by a Dragoon!? If he couldn't even defeat a Dragoon, then how could he possibly hope to reclaim his position as Head Honcho from Golbez!?


<hr>Act One: END
<hr>

How can Cecil gain the strength to retrieve Rosa back from the TRUE Dark Lord, Golbez? Find out in the next chronicle: Mysidian Prodigies!

The Dramatic Conclusion to Act One: END


I freaking love making these! Oh, and I know the humor is sub-par but bear with me. :exdee:

Don't worry though, Act Two onward will have larger, more clearer, pictures for you so you don't have to make your eyes bleed to look at them. I'm also going to try my best and record all of the fights with the Elemental Emperors and put them on YouTube or something, if I remember what to save the video as, lol.

I set the focus on my camera to "macro". Macro shots are extremely close shots. This way I can take clean pictures of the screen. I don't know what happens when you take pics with a camera phone, but mine has the option as far as I can remember. You seem to take pictures of your TV though. A good camera with auto focus ought to do the trick.

Dammit, mine is set to Macro too, and mine are still random. xP

I'm taking pictures of my DS as well. That's not a TV. :P

My camera works like this: when you press the button lightly, it focuses. When wou press the button more firmly, it takes the shot. When picturing a static subject like a DS screen I always check that the camera's well in focus before taking the picture.

Well yes, I do let my camera focus before mashing down on the button. :P

I was out again today, but I managed to get some playing done. I didn't have my camera with me, so I never got a picture of Cid saying "First my airship and now my Hobag." That's very sad.

First shot is of the party at the final save point. Other one is a crumbling last boss. Finally took Zeromus down after 3 tries. Going straight through the game and skipping The Land of Summoned Monsters and Bahamut's Cave left me gimped compared to a normal playthrough. Rydia is extra baggage in the fight anyway since she has crazy low HP and can't cast damaging spells without being countered with Nuke. Being the hot chick she is, I left her face-down after the first round of banging. Time of 10 hours 30 minutes right before the final battle. Yay! :choc2:

I now have the chance to get rid of Rosa for the rest of the game...

This is the best I could do at the moment. Also, I suck at maths so I'll probably never be able to raise this walking marshmallow's Intelligence or whatever it is. In fact he looks quite stupid already.

Cecil shows a knack for stating the obvious.
When I went back to Fabul to search for Recordingway to shoot some cool images of Kain and Cecil fighting, he had disappeared. When I catch him I'll turn him into hare roast. :(

So apparently flying straight up leads us into some kind of future mecha fort thing in the sky.

We travel around it for a while and finally meet with Golbez. DD decides to have a bad ass off and promptly loses.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-47.jpg

Yes! DD is finally gone! Mafia will finally be safe to play again! My plan has worked!!!!!

Alternatively I wonder what "!" sounds like.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-48.jpg

Hypnotizing people turns them evil and do your bidding? Why am I just know learning of this?!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-49.jpg

I never quite understood why they put a giant ball up there. You would think an evil mastermind would have an evil trap a little cooler then a giant metal ball suspended from the ceiling.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-50.jpg

It's like their sprites just melted together.

So we leave that tower place and have a strategy meeting in Leeza's room.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-51.jpg

I'm sorry, can you be a little more vague please?

Speaking of which Lancea and KoShia are back!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-52.jpg

HOLY HELL! Their both way higher level then me! Curse you Paladin! Curse you I say! I bet somewhere out there the Elder of Mysidia is laughing right now "Wow I can't believe he fell for that turn into a Paladin trick!". :mad2:

So we take a key that will apparently lead us to the underworld that needs to be used at a certain spot. After about 20 minutes we give up and decide to chuck the key down some well and go onto plan B, dig a hole until we reach the underworld.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-53.jpg

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-54.jpg

My thoughts exactly.

So we decide to fly down the giant hole in the mountain we caused and what do we find in the underworld?

Dwarves.....lots and lots of dwarves.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-56.jpg

At least their happy dwarves.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-57.jpg

And very open about their security.

So we meet with the king of the dwarves and go into his secret room which he just let us in.

When we suddenly get attacked!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-58.jpg

This is hands down the creepiest thing I've ever seen in my life.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-59.jpg

Scratch that. Lucky for Golbez that he has experience as the stunt double for Thing in the Addams Family.

Oh and Momiji's back!

So we decide to go hit back Golbez's crib again.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-60.jpg

Hey look, 1337!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-61.jpg

Not something you wanna hear while assaulting the biggest bad asses base of operations.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-62.jpg

Rocket launchers on his shoulders? This is like the coolest robot ever! Too bad we have to kill him.

Eventually we make it out of there but not before NoName gets blown up. Kaiser shows up and takes us back to the surface, but not before blowing himself up too.

Death by explosion seems to be a common theme in this game.

So looks like it's time to pimp out our ride before we can go on.

"I'm afraid I don't. Do they whip out a Scrabble board? Because I'd give her a triple word score if you know what I mean."

Meanwhile at LOCATIONS UNKNOWN (which rather disappointingly was actually called the Tower of Zot) and after getting kicked out of Troia for mild sexual overtones:

"It's not very effective."
"I choose you, Tellah!"

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v318/Miffincake/FFIV/ff4j_00028.jpg

Oh for Cid's sake, we discussed this deal. I told you to get the lawyers in to make a contract so we could remind him, but no you had some Mythril armour to buy.

"That's nothing, you should see this pub in Troia..."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v318/Miffincake/FFIV/ff4j_00031.jpg

"Yeah, we've met three of the four, it would be totally unreasonable to even begin to suspect we might meet the last one. Fiver says he's the most powerful too."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v318/Miffincake/FFIV/ff4j_00032.jpg

Behind the scenes

"Thank God you came up with that unexpected plot twist at the last minute. Reckon it'll look a bit silly to the players that no one mentioned these up until now?"
"Nahh."

After defeating Rubicant, the Elbanese task force sent to help us out leave as soon as they appear. Cheers then.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_03092008_180131.jpg


Onwards towards Golbez's crystal room! Yes, we're still doing that.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_03092008_180201.jpg

<img src="http://www.speedmetal.com/core/wp-content/plugins/random-image/ackbar.jpg" alt="We can't repel poor humour of this magnitude!">


It seems Golbez creates traps so intricate that it stops him from getting to his crystals himself. Anyway, the floor falls through and we land near an airship dock.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_03092008_180817.jpg

Golbez destroys your hometown, kills your mother, threatens to kill you, and is bent on world domination, and you have second thoughts about stealing one of his god damn airships?


Actually, it was probably best to leave it, seeing as it's somehow physically impossible to cross over lava with this ship, no matter how high you go. This smurfing game! <img src="http://fromearth.net/LetsPlay/Smilies/emot-argh.gif">

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_03092008_180913.jpg


Also, it turns out that jumping off an airship at altitude and exploding yourself over a wide area is easily overcome with a few hours rest in hospital.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_05092008_124556.jpg


From there it's a quick trip to the Land of Summons, feat. BushHag.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_05092008_141558.jpg


Namingway is here too. Can't summon him though.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_05092008_142806.jpg


This is the throne room for the King of Summons. It looks more like a basement to me but we'll roll with it

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_05092008_143435.jpg


Before we get to talk to the king, we must fight the queen, who is difficult until you cast reflect onto her, so she continually casts Armor and cure3 on your team and makes it impossible for you to lose.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_05092008_144152.jpg

Victory in this battle awards us with the Asura summon, which when called, casts life or cure3 on your team. Completely useless then.


I forgot to take a picture of the Leviatan battle, but I did get his message of congraturation on my spirit being righteous. Violence makes it true.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_05092008_145429.jpg


Next, to Sylvan Cave, which is difficult.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_05092008_193422.jpg


Biggie is alive as well. How the hell he managed to survive an explosion, crawl down the tower, swim through seas of lava, and make his way all the way through this dungeon is not for us to ponder.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_05092008_195731.jpg

We tore apart the King and Queen of summons, but God help us if 50Cent and the gang is able to brush aside FOUR smurfING FAIRIES.


From there it's off to Sealed Cave, where men are men and doors are sentient.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_05092008_210251.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_05092008_210459.jpg


So this is the fabled EvilWall I've heard so much about.

Back in the Dwarf Castle, it's plot twist time!

But first, we need to escape back to the overworld! Luckily, ChuckD is on hand with the solution.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/oldmanus/ff4/capture_05092008_220249-1.jpg

No, LilKim, the correct question there is 'What?'


This calls for another 10 minute sequence on the ship where nothing really happens, that you can't skip. I haven't mentioned it before, but these scenes were getting so excessive that I felt the urge to bring it up.

From attaching a giant drill to an airship in order to get to the surface, the level of stupidity is pushed up a notch when we have to pray in order to make the Lunar Whale appear. What makes it all the more depressing is that this is probably going to work.

Now it's time for the moon, or as I like to call it, the Star Wars segment of the game. This is the 16bit Death Star:

The legendary Lunar Whale cannot land anywhere with anything more than a few pebbles on the floor, meaning you have to walk pretty much everywhere.

Wow a lot of screen shot walkthroughs!

Mom Bomb has been replaced with the Golbez fight after getting Rydia back. How the heck are you supposed to beat that guy with 2 characters? I can't Phoenix down Rosa because his next -ra spell just kills her. I wish I had the item that casts reflect. It would be so easy. :(

0/3 so far. If I use Cecil to Cura and Rydia to summon I can stay alive but I have no way to tell what his weakness changes to so I end up healing him.

We end up getting our ride pimped out, but we have no idea where to possibly go next. If only someone would drop us a subtle hint.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-63.jpg

Well there we go.

We traverse the cave and wind up a village inside of a cave. For being kicked out of their castle these people move in fast.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-64.jpg

Words fail to describe how bad a plan this is.

Eventually we run into this Ninja Prince...

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-65.jpg

right as he gets owned.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-66.jpg

And then there were 5.

So now we're in the Tower of Bab-il again.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-68.jpg

Ok I seriously have no idea how this became...

this. Screw the stupid axe I get from it, I'll take the tiny box that can fit 4 ogres inside it. No longer shall the fat chocobo reign over me with storage!

So as we last left our heroes they were pimping out their ride or some such. We then headed into a rather boring cave except for the fact that the walls and doors were really monsters trying to eat us! I didn't take any pics because I was lazy and nothing really caught my interest for being humorous. So just imagine something funny and pretend I said it.

Anyways we continue on!

And it's time for a new ride!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-73.jpg

Golbez needed EIGHT crystals to get to the moon, we only need 1. I'm feeling so pimp right now. :cool:

We go to the moon and wander around in the vacuum of space perfectly fine. We eventually go into the only structure on the entirety of the moon where we meet a man inside there....a mysterious old man...

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-75.jpg

Oh hay it's qwerty! So I renamed FuSoYa qwerty for one simple reason....so I could get away with showing this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDunm_hzdgA&feature=related). :p

Anyways we explore the moon a little more and find this.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-74.jpg

Words can't begin to explain how scary a scene this is.

We eventually find another cave and inside it we meet a familiar face.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-76.jpg

Truly horrifying.

Anyways we decide to leave the moon and ends up back on good 'ole Earth a giant robot is menacing some mountains. Time for us to step in!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-77.jpg

Really you had to shout 'Scream!' you couldn't just actually scream?

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-78.jpg

This line makes me laugh in more ways then one.

So anyways we go inside and blow up the giants brain or heart or something like that. qwerty reveals some big bombs to us then leaves with Golbez leaving us with Lancea once again. Off to the moon once again to stop evil moonmen!

Trivia: Cid now provides backing vocals for The Black Mages.

Golbeze avoids jail time by pleading the Edea defence.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v318/Miffincake/FFIV/ff4j_00070.jpg

And then he left Cain a post-it note on the fridge in the Tower of Zot to tell Cain that such a defence works and should be used.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v318/Miffincake/FFIV/ff4j_00071.jpg

Zeromous can be tricky if you don't figure out the stratagy to take him down early like I did. :p

But yes, I was hoping Rubicante would be harder as well. But oh well, the other hard bosses make up for one fight lacking. :p

Okay after a long ordeal ( sorry Leeza ) I finally managed to record the Scarmiglione fight! But, to my surprise ( not really ) I clicked "Finish Video" in WMM and it seems to have frozen up. Let's all pray that it works and now that I know what to do, the others should come a lot faster. ( And hopefully I'll play a lot more. )

I'll post the video on YouTube and the screenshots here, as well as a link to the video if anyone is interested.

I'm getting a little ahead of the game here, but I say we do an Eyes on Plays Chrono Trigger after the DS Remake comes out, much like we did with FF IV. :p

Just a thought. :monster:

Sorry about the poor image quality, but with no power there was very little backlighting and the flash bleached out the screen. I decided to name my characters after characters in FFVI in roughly the order you meet them in FFVI. I thought that maybe the odd combination of names in conversations would lead to mildly humorous screens, but I was mistaken. :(

The journey begins.

I thought I would be smart by hiding the Bomb Ring in the Giant Chocobo before going through the mist cave. The Giant Chocobo was smarter. :(

The crew trudges through the moon and begins a long series of battles. None of which were highly amusing but actually very obnoxious. Except for one.

Hey look Ogopogo's really from the moon. Honestly who thought it was a dinosaur? Really?

Skipping straight to the end!

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-89.jpg

The party all pimped out full ultimate gear. Ok let's do this! Time to own us a moon man!

Umm....mulligan?

Luckily we get our mulligan and we win!

Zeromus slowly sinks into space...

and talks more obnoxiously then the Dark Elf.

They like being unique on sound effects in this game I've found.

Wait? Of everyone to get an ending sequence, the DWARVES get a scene? You guys did like nothing! Hell none of you were even in the party, and yet they gave YOU your very own scene. H4X!!!!

Someone didn't get the memo about "The After".

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-87.jpg

And then everyone levels up simultaneously. Or heil Leeza, I'm not quite sure.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g269/bahamut2000x/FF%20III/4-88.jpg

Indeed. But it's not over yet!

After saving the world our heroes went on to lead rich fulfilling lives.

Leeza started the first ever school for bad asses and later burned down Mysidia and Mt. Ordeals for revenge on taking her bad ass Dark Knight skills away.

Lancea went on to star in several other games as the bad ass rival to the hero. One day however while performing a shoot, he jumped up too high and was caught in the turbines of a 747. He will be missed....in pieces. :(

Momiji went on to become a pop culture idol throughout the world, eventually using her summoned powers to conquer all of the Bahamas.

DD is still dead.

Kaiser went on to redesign the giant of Ba-bil and create a whole new line of weaponry based on giant robot technology. Eventually these new weapons were used to conquer the dwarves who had decided to scrap all their weapons.

KoShia and Leeza went out for a while longer, but eventually broke up. Looking for real work KoShia became a commercial pilot and flew 747's all day. Poor Lancea. :(

Heath left Mysidia before Leeza came and destroyed it, and found his way to Troia. He found the pub with all the dancers and became the manager of the joint. Heath can be found spending his days relaxing with about 12 Jess recolors.

Rubah went on to steal the Lunar Whale and created the worlds first fast food delivery service. She called it MFC, Mysidian Fried Chocobo.

GoBo returned to rebuild his kingdom, and before ascending the throne it was found out he was really a chocobo in a human disguise. He was cast out and eventually picked up by Rubah...Yum. :choc2:

NoName went on to become a martial arts sensation bigger then Jet Li, Jackie Chan, and Bruce Lee combined. To date he has stared in on over 2,363,473 martial arts movies. NoName eventually died when he said he was bigger then Chuck Norris. Cause of death was decapitation through round house kick to the head. :(

rXp went on to star in every single ninja related game and movie in history. He never did hook up with Momiji though. :(

qwerty went back to the moon and helped convert it into a Death Star, then left Earth's orbit to go do battle with Space Nazi's (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KEueJnsu80).

Bravo B2K! :D (h5)

So anyway, this entry will be a short one but with a video attached!



Sagensyg's Cecil Only Challenge!
Scarmiglione<hr>In the conclusion of Act One we saw Cecil's defeat to the hands of his best friend, Kain. Now how is he gonna get really strong & buff in just a short time? He's not a Super Saiyan, and the steroids are nowhere to be found, so maybe sailing in random directions will help us find this power!

Scarmiglione | Mysidian Prodigies


Of course, in a world where you can run into monsters just by walking outside, there's sure to be some even in the ocean!


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/1x.png
We ran into our good friend Leviathan and he managed to kill off all of my friends!


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/2x.png
I, however, washed up on shore and found a community I had plundered and pillaged a long time ago. Those were the good times.


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/3x.png
So I ended up walking--straight forward--and found the most important person in the whole entire village. He says I can go on a mountain and become stronger, but I'll need two slaves to accompany me. That's how I roll.


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/4x.png
Oh and what an ordeal that mountain was!

The Final Chapter Of
Sagensyg's Cecil Only Challenge!<hr>- Wait? What!? What's going on Sagensyg? The Final Chapter?

- It will all be explained in due time my friend. :)



Anyway, shall we commence with the story?

| 端 |
The Final Chapter - Paladin Cecil

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/5x.png
After defeating the dastardly Scarmiglione, our Hero had reached the summit of Mt. Ordeals and supposedly gained unimaginable power! Strong enough to defeat Golbez right?

WRONG.

Viewers, our hero has become a WIMP, a SOFTY if you will ... let me explain.


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/6x.png
After going along the Devil Road to Baron, he decided it was time to test this power on some cronies in a bar. His attack animation even looks cooler! But, to my surprise, it was less damage than when he was a follower of the Darkness.


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/7x.png
So much less in fact, that I had died twice before even REACHING Yang. I even had to use a rare Hourglass on the Guards. Luckily Yang was a pushover. Hopefully this won't deter me in the Waterway! :jess:


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/8x.png
Man, was I wrong. Fighting in the waterway was like beating the original Final Fantasy all over again! Pure luck! I gained 8 levels in one battle and was still having a hard time! IN THE BACK ROW.



http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/9x.png
Not to mention how much fun I had with this encounter! :thumb: Don't you just love attacks that can't miss? Ever?


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/Final%20Fantasy%204/10x.png
I eventually reached Baron and made short work of Baigan--to my surprise. ( Seriously, I thought he was gonna be Hell. )


So now you guys must have come to the conclusion that "This is the last chapter because Paladin Cecil sucks?"

Well, to put it bluntly ... yeah.



No, not really, I haven't the slightest problem using a sucky Cecil, s'why I took up this challenge. So enough with the suspense, why is this the last chapter you say?

Before I tell you why, let me just do one thing real quick ... ... ...





http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/thcoolgoku02.gif
GRAAAAHHHH!!!!

CAGNAZZO MAN IT'S CAGNAZZO!! Here I was minding my own business, using a pretty basic "Attack-til-he-dies, Cura-when-Necessary" Plan. It was going awesome and I had not a care in the world but then it happened. HE HAS A FREAKING TURTLE DEFENSE FORM.

Have you even heard of this blasphemy!?


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/crit.png
Again, I wouldn't mind hitting 50 on him until he reverted back to his water wall, with the occasional 98 Damage Crit.


but Square did what I feared the most. They DID it.

They did ....


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/Sagensyg/restore.png
THIS

THIS IS THE SUM OF ALL HATE IN THE EARTH.

Words cannot describe the utter crapload of, well, CRAP this is.

And so I conclude Cecil's fateful story, with the fall of a kingdom, and the death of

The World's ...


Last ...


Hope ...

So Leeza, It's all down to you, bud. I can either revive Tellah for this one battle and nuke him with a Thundaga, or I can end this mess right here and now and just continue the game with a full party as if nothing happened.

I did some "research" on Cagnazzo and he's always weak again Ice. Did you try using any ice items on him?

Also, there's a solo Cecil guide for the SNES FFII on gamefaqs but I don't know if it will be much help:
GameFAQs: Final Fantasy IV (SNES) Solo Cecil Guide by Storm Hunter (http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/snes/file/588330/28533)

*NOTE* The following strategy is strictly for the SNES version. In the hard type, Kainazzo (Kagnazzo in hard type.) heals for much more but not as often. The following strategy hasn't been tested for the Hardtype yet. This guy can be a real pain. At first he won't do much except Big Wave. You should be doing a good amount of damage to him, so you might be wondering why I think this guy's hard. When he's about half way dead, Kainazzo will retreat into his shell and up his defense and heal himself for exactly 400 HP. He will then come out of his shell and continue to use Big Wave. Under regular cirumstances, this guy would be dead in three hits of Bolt 3, but since we've only got Cecil, we have to whittle away at his HP. With his defense gone up, you'll be doing about 200-300 HP. Unless you can easily do 300+ damage to him at this point, reset and level up, because every second time you hit Kainazzo, he retreats into his shell and heals for another 400 HP. If you're doing more than 300 HP damage to him on a regular
basis, he can't heal himself as much and will soon fall.

Maybe you're going to have to level up until you can brute force your way through him. If I remember correctly, Mt. Ordeals is the best level up place until you get the airship after Baron's events. Especially for Cecil when he's a Paladin and nothing can touch him on that mountain.

Thanks Mulley!

And I was thinking about using my Antarctic Winds on him, but I scratched the idea. I should've tried it.

But crap, I was afraid that I would have to grind. You realize I've gotta go from 50 Damage to 500 now? Anyway, thanks to you, THE CHALLENGE WILL CONTINUE!!! :D

Okay, here I go.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/1.jpg" />
It starts.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/2.jpg" />
This is my favorite scene in the game and it only takes five minutes to get there.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/3.jpg" />
It's a party!

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/4.jpg" />
Sometimes I like to hide under bridges and pretend I'm a troll.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/5.jpg" />
Apparently in the land of fantasy it's cool to party with a little girl, a karate master with a cold, a girl who likes to play with two men's hearts and then rip one of them out with a spoon as well as a prince who likes to travel the world pretending he's a singing bard.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/6.jpg" />
I hate these two kids.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/7.jpg" />
Milon Z? Scarmiglione is such a cooler name.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/8.jpg" />
Apparently after becoming a paladin Cecil began listening to the music of Elton John, discovered cocaine and frizzed out his hair.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/9.jpg" />
This is the first chance I've had to name this old guy.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/10.jpg" />
I think I see a fish swimming in there.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/11.jpg" />
A cid appears!

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/12.jpg" />
I learned in that flash movie that she likes to lick the ladies.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/13.jpg" />
Bringing sexy back.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/14.jpg" />
Mexican ninjas.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/15.jpg" />
A leg to envy. The object of much envy. Jealousy approaches.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/16.jpg" />
The king! The Queen! A Green Bean has killed them all!

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/17.jpg" />
As the whale arose from the bottom of the seas all stared in wonder with slack-jawed amazement. All but Taco. Apparently he had seen something like this happen before.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/18.jpg" />
I never got the chance to name the crazy moon-man Mophed.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/19.jpg" />
At last! All but the rarest <s>pokemon</s> summons were mine!

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/20.jpg" />
Moments before the fight with Zexy.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/21.jpg" />
Zexy kinda looks like an octopus here.

<img src="http://www.geocities.com/floydsarmy/ffiv/22.jpg" />
The end! I beat this game in about 23 hours and 40 minutes :) Less than 24 hours and that wasn't even a speed playthrough. I got all the extra summons, best weapons and everything.

Your time is under 17 hours just before Zeromus. Did you leave the game running for 6-7 hours just to make sure you were prepared for the final battle?

09-30-2008, 05:16 PM
Video Game time vs Real World time. Most earlier FFs do that and probably later but I never checked. I always wondered what part of the game the timer didn't track. The transition between fights? Opening menus? I have no idea, but they're never accurate. There were also some little breaks in there for food, moderating here and stuffs.

Cid is good at overdoing himself!

Currently in the Giant of Babil's "passage". I mean, was it too hazardous to name it "intestines"??? Level grinding like mad because the Fiends made minced meat of me on my first try. >___>

I don't know whether I should join in or not. I got the DS version yesterday but it's quite hard (I got killed by the Mom Bomb, which kind of amuses me). I've never actually finished the game before so I doubt I'll be able to finish it on DS.:D

I'm at the same place Rantzien, and it looks like I'm going to be there for a long time because I have only one Elixer. No Ethers. And Rydia keeps dying so Cecil spends all his time Raising her and trying to Cure instead of being able to use Libra. He's already at level 47 but I think my only chance here is to just keep leveling. It would be nice if I could get back up to the real world so that I could go fight in some dungeons and get some Ethers, but I'm stuck down here. Maybe forever.

Well, this is a nice easy final boss.

Since they can't beat him, I do. Second time, admittedly. Was a bit underlevelled first time.

I don't know whether it's this particular translation or something, but I've found that Edge is increasingly getting closer and closer to Tidus in the "very irritating playable character" league table.

Aww.

So yeah, I really enjoyed this more than I thought I was going to. I still hate FFIV's inventory system, but it's a jolly fun game and definitely one of the more challenging Final Fantasy games, though it looks like I had a pretty easy time compared to you people on the DS. What I get for being cheap, I suppose! Thanks for reading.

I love the developer's office. xD That wasn't there in the original, was it?


I'm at the same place Rantzien, and it looks like I'm going to be there for a long time because I have only one Elixer. No Ethers. And Rydia keeps dying so Cecil spends all his time Raising her and trying to Cure instead of being able to use Libra. He's already at level 47 but I think my only chance here is to just keep leveling. It would be nice if I could get back up to the real world so that I could go fight in some dungeons and get some Ethers, but I'm stuck down here. Maybe forever.

I got him pretty easily after I cast Slow (Spider Silk) on him, then revived one at a time with a quick Phoenix Down, Hi-Potion combo to ensure they don't die at the next spell he casts. Then some party-healing by Cecil and Rosa and finally casting Libra to find his one weak element and bashing away.

I leveled Cecil to 52 and then it was no problem with just him and Rydia. :)

Yes I'm still alive, not that anybody cares, and I've got 2 playthroughs going.
PS1: on the Moon, hopelessly underleveled
DS: Sealed cave, moving slowly, didn't notice deadline.
I'll finish when I get around to it.
Anyways, V is up next?

10-11-2008, 11:21 PM

Hopefully we won't be interrupted like last time. MQ was ok, but being interrupted with, say, Crystal chronicles, would just be wrong at this point, Imho. How long will we do V? I need to finish my current playthroughs of IV, V, and VI before we get going.

Most subsequent "Eyes On"s will be at least two months as the games grow progressively larger.

Larger? This one is large. I thought this is one that I would have finished on time, but NO. I just finished with the Sealed Cave and am now out of the Underworld. Still a ways to go. I found a Blue Tail tough. Does it do anything?

Flying Mullet
10-13-2008, 08:03 PM
I think my average FFIV playthroughs were around 20-24 hours on the in-game clock when I found everything in game. I'm not sure about FFV, but FFVI is 30-40, depending upon how much leveling and spell teaching you do with your characters. I want to say FFVII is 40-50 hours and it's just getting longer from there.

Leeza
10-13-2008, 08:13 PM
Holy crap! I'm already at 45 hours for FFIV! But I am doing a lot of leveling and exploring as Cecil is already at Level 70. This is my first time through most of these games though.

Flying Mullet
10-13-2008, 08:15 PM
What version are you playing? I should clarify my last post by stating that those times are either on the old SNES FFII or the PSOne release. I'm not sure what my times were on the GBA versions with the extra content and I haven't played the DS version.

I've only taken 20 hours, and I'm on the moon! But I'm not doing sidequests or powerleveling, just going through. Is lvl.50 too low at this point?

Leeza
10-13-2008, 09:55 PM
My exploring might be sidequests. How do you know what's a sidequest and what isn't? 50 would be too low for me. I like brute force better than magic. :cat:

Flying Mullet
10-13-2008, 09:56 PM
Anything that isn't part of the main story is a sidequest, i.e. Land of Summoned Monsters, Sylph Cave, Bahamut, etc...

I'm in the last part of the last dungeon with a party that starts being well over level 80. But I still don't trust myself to go against Zeromus like this. If I can grind some more, I'll feel safer.

I was finally able to beat the game by a stroke of pure luck (Kain was Jumping while Zeromus launched Meteor, killing the rest of the party, and when he came down he gave the decisive strike). Nice!

If you give Cecil the draw attack augment and then cast reflect on him. All the battles with the doors are a breeze.

Apparently his defense/spirit was high enough that they never killed him once with that ninth dimension attack.

So a character with enough Spirit can not be killed by Ninth dimension...? That never happened to me once. I thought it was instant death and that it was all about being fast. :o

I got *no effect* every single time. Or maybe it missed sometimes, but it never killed him.

The doors were easy. I always waited to see who they would focus on and then I would have Rosa cast Reflect on that person. Instant death to the door.

Hey all, I am still trying to finish this game. I'm at the final battle with Zeromus and nothing is happening. I've been trying to fight him for half an hour already but all I managed to do was load everyone up with Haste, Blink, Shell, Protect, Reflect and anything else I could think of. All of my attacks on him net a 0 and he just floats there and sputters a bit but is not attacking. Isn't he supposed to blast me with something by now? Or is he supposed to just float there and then hit me when I'm getting all bored of attacking him with nothing happening? Do I have some sort of glitch here right at the end of the game? I've been playing it all fucking day so that I can get on to FFV so it would really piss me off if I have a glitch!

Tavrobel

Have you used The Crystal on him yet? This first form exists only so you can steal Dark Matter, and for an attempt at the makers to introduce cutscenery into a battle.

11-02-2008, 03:48 AM
Did you use a crystal?

I had to read a walkthrough for that xD Now I know what swords are coming up though!

I'm supposed to use the Crystal? No, I did not use a Crystal. :/ I will go use a Crystal. :)

If all else fails, levelgrind a lot near the last save point. I had a lot of trouble with Zeromus before doing that.

Then again, you're playing the DS version-- I haven't. So I don't know how hard it is in comparison. FFIV is pretty cruel in general, though. :p
