Episode 20 - Snatch That Bander!

https://youtu.be/9mqB5xAJY1g


Hey folks, today we're taking on Alexandria, when the Queen is throwing everything she can at us! I mean, we have no choice if we want to save our Dagger! Thing is, there are two boss encounters...

------------------------------------------

Zorn + Thorn Strategy:

- Attack the one that is having the power given to him. Make sure to attack with vivi in order to do little damage, at least until you're done stealing each of the boss's 2 items (they're amazing items to steal too!).
- There's not a whole lot more to this fight. Just watch the timer but take it slow if you have that spare time :).

------------------------------------------

Beatrix Strategy:

- Yep, it's her again! Same strategy too!
- Steal for as long as possible, while keeping healed up and having everyone in the back row.

------------------------------------------

So two pretty straightforward bosses by this point but the timer can be a real bugger, in different ways for each boss :).

Thanks for watching! We'll see how the newly made party of Zidane, Dagger and Vivi cope next time! :)

Episode 21 - That Blows And Sucks!

https://youtu.be/NyVUNTAU5MM


Hey peoples, there's a lot going on this time! Firstly, we have some trouble in Gargan Roo again...

----------------------------------

Ralvuimago Strategy:

- Attack with Vivi to make it go compact.
- Steal now when there's no chance for it to make any attacks. Make sure to nab its oak staff for Vivi! You can learn a really good spell from it.
- Otherwise, the usual attack, spell and healing routine. Just try not to attack it when it's compact.
- Mini is bad but not awful. Just try to avoid using the character who's in it, other than for using any healing items if necessary.

----------------------------------

Otherwise, we check out Pinnacle Rocks and the Hero's Story. As for Lindblum...well, there's a lot going on there that you may want to check out ;).

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit :).

Episode 22 - Lani's Assets

https://youtu.be/e6mcmAVMX5I


Hey folks, we're checking out the destroyed Lindblum today, which is pretty awful in its own right, but there's more too. Since Brahne is heading on over to a new continent, I guess we'd better give chase and stop her ;). The problem is that we need to go through Fossil Roo to get there and that gives us a new problem...

-------------------------------------------

Lani Strategy:

- Steal her really good stuff, even if it takes a little bit of time.
- Keep Dagger healed up. Lani likes to target her specifically until Dagger dies.
- Otherwise, it's just a matter of using your strongest spells and staying alive (I know, shocking right?). Good luck!

-------------------------------------------

Thanks for watching! See you next time for the the proper dungeon part of Fossil Roo! :)

Episode 23 - Through Fossil Roo

https://youtu.be/_Lqy4gstYEQ


Hello there! Today, we're taking on Fossil Roo, the underground maze that connects the mist and outer continents. I love this place, especially a specific enemy design that can be found here! Now, if only we could find some enemies :/.

Within these walls is a nice minigame that'll net you 2 trophies along with a secret moogle! You'll need to find him if you're trying to complete the mognet sidequest so I recommend not missing him. I mean...he's easy to find but also easy to miss lol.

We also check out a bit of the new continent and learn some new blue magic spells! This one ended up being quite a packed episode :s.

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit when we start exploring the outer continent some more! :)

Episode 24 - Where There Are No Owls

https://youtu.be/d_TVPY2WTdE


Hey folks, today we're heading into that archway; Conde Petie! A new town for us to explore, full of...scottish people? We also head on over to Black Mage Village, one of my favourite places in the game :griin:.

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

It's such a memorable area, especially with the village right after it :lew:. You can really feel the magical forest vibe :s. The wedding is one of the funniest moments in the game for me...especially between Quinna and Vivi :s. Speaking of...

-----------------------------------------

Episode 25 - Stealing From A Giant


https://youtu.be/OlR_xIi4oU4


Hi there folks, today we've got our 7th party member to meet! Eiko is a brat but...I still like her. I'll try and show you why as we go along :).

The thing is that we now need to cross the Conde Petie Mountain Path, and someone doesn't want to make that easy...

-----------------------------------

Hilgigars Strategy:

- Try and have the patience to steal his 3 items. This is probably the toughest boss to steal from in the game; it took me a good hour here with the speed boost option turned on :/. However, the flute has amazing spells to learn: Esuna, Regen and Haste! It'll be a long time before you can actually get this weapon otherwise.
- Have some equipment on that will reduce earth damage, if possible. If not, cast float on the party regularly to avoid Earthquake.
- Otherwise, just keep healed up and cast bio every turn.

-----------------------------------

That's about it really! Thanks for watching! We'll check out Madain Sari next time! :)

P.S. The ceremony between Vivi and Quina is hilarious. Good on you Quina :s.

Episode 26 - Kupo For Kooking!

https://youtu.be/uB56_8a14Tw


Hey again folks! Today we're checking out Madain Sari; Eiko's hometown! This involves some incredible cooking! Now, if only we had a gourmand with us...

We also check out a bit more around there but I'll leave that for you :).

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 27 - The Tree Of Life

https://youtu.be/UPFySSRviOM


Hey peoples, we're finally checking the Sanctuary, otherwise known as the Iifa Tree! This dungeon is really nice looking but it's one of those rare instances where I really dislike the song. I find it so depressing that I have to turn the sound off whenever I go through the dungeon each playthrough :s.

------------------------------------

Soulcage Strategy:

- Cast Life.

------------------------------------

Seriously, that's it! You could take it on normally but avoid using fire and you're sorted. Easy boss, even when stealing.

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 28 - As Red As Flames

https://youtu.be/TUhGlTN-1g8


Hey peoples, today we're nabbing our final party member: Amarant! Before that though, we need to check out the trouble at Madain Sari...

----------------------------------

Red/Flaming Amarant Strategy:

- Steal his stuff and use potions
- Attack when he's at the front and saying he's ready to fight (and lines like it).
- Be careful and heal before attacking.
- Go in the back row if it makes the battle easier. It may make the fight take longer, but it's worth it to survive.

----------------------------------

Thanks for watching! See you next time for the end of disc 2! :)

Episode 29 - Brahne vs Kuja!

https://youtu.be/YVgEfrcvKfs


Hey folks, Brahne and Kuja are finally butting heads! To the death!

There's a lot of plot progression here, wrapping up the 2nd disc, so I hope you enjoy. I love this part...it adds some major feels to the game :s.

We also check out a little bit of Alexandria again, but it's changed a wee bit since the start of the game. Want to be an Athlete Queen? Then check out the end of the episode :).

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit for disc 3 to start properly! :)

Episode 30 - Queen Of The Night

https://youtu.be/uYvB9m_pWP4


Hey folks, it's a biggy today to kick off disc 3 properly! While disc 3 starts with a tonne of plot, I tried to get a sidequest or two in along the way to break it up a bit :s.

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 31 - Heart Of The Cards!

https://youtu.be/XgqX7mr8dL0


Hey folks, today we're checking out the card tournament in Treno! :)

There's plenty more going to too, such as a look at Dali now that black mages are no longer being made. Kuja's attempt at taking over Alexandria is here too, but we'll be carrying on with that tomorrow :). Thanks for watching!

P.S. I was always devastated with what Kuja did here but...maybe it won't all turn out so bad? :s

P.P.S. That optional scene at Quan's Dwelling is cute but...creepy as hell at the same time lmao.

Episode 32 - The Holy Judgement

https://youtu.be/IKpzrF2ep80


Hey peoples, it looks like Alexandria is under attack! Garnet needs to be the best Queen she can be to protect and save her town but...can she? :eek:

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 33 - Cid Yummy Yummy

https://youtu.be/51Z5_W9wnoQ


Hey folks, We need to change Cid into a human again! There's also a tonne of plot at Lindblum, but this episode will be the last of all the dialogue that kicks off disc 3 so we'll be heading off to quite a few dungeons afterwards :). By the way, we now have a new vehicle! The ship gives you access to a tonne of old locations so if you want to backtrack then go for it now. I still think it's better to wait for the next vehicle though, personally :).

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 34 - Forgotten Prisoners

https://youtu.be/XcOdLKb4jHQ


Hey folks, today we're heading off to the Black Mage Village to see where to go next. Seems that Kuja's Palace is nearby...

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

P.S.
I had a hard time editing this one and trying to get the time down. You'll probably notice that once we make it to the Forgotten continent. I hope it's ok :s.

Episode 35 - The Face Museum

https://youtu.be/IgoemeXB2GE


Hey folks, today we're finding out exactly what Terra is. No, it's not a green-haired girl this time :p. The great thing is that it's not just a tonne of dialogue; it's a dungeon inside of a pretty bizarre museum on the Forgotten continent lmao. Welcome to Oeilvert! Look out for the faces ;).

We have a small issue though. To get Kuja's gulug stone, we need to take on the guard:

-----------------------------------

Ark Strategy:

- It has some great stuff to steal so try and nab those.
- Try and protect yourself from thunder and wind attacks.
- Put clear-headed on everyone to avoid confusion (pretty much a must for a much easier ride!).

-----------------------------------

Thanks for watching! We'll be checking back in on our imprisoned mages next time! :)

Episode 36 - Blood Magic

https://youtu.be/NeZGDPpPEx0


Hey peoples, today we're checking up on our mages and seeing what their dungeon is like: Desert Palace! It's not my favourite dungeon in the game, since the fights can drag a bit with all the spell animations. Don't worry about that for this playthrough though lol. Other than the fights though, this is a great dungeon with an interesting gimmick! You need to collect bloodstones to weaken the boss...

-----------------------------------------------


Valia Pira Strategy:


- Make sure to collect as many bloodstones as you can before entering the boss battle. It'll stop this thing from boosting defences etc.
- Go all out with summons, your best black magic (water and bio are both great) and keep healed up.
- Don't use magic if he casts reflect on himself. A way around this though is by casting reflect on one of your party members and bouncing a spell off yourself. Just remember to heal that party member with items instead of spells at that point though!

-----------------------------------------------


Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 37 - That Freezing Heat

https://youtu.be/0XdaWdRo2Gs


Hey folks, today we're wrapping up the whole Kuja's Palace scenario...but we do still need to chase the little shit over to Esto Gaza and Mt Gulug! I think this is the only point in the game where you see snow?

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

P.S. Why does Kuja even need the gulug stone? It doesn't seem to get used in Mt Gulug, does it? :s

Episode 38 - Little Mog

https://youtu.be/99UJzhpo7UI


Hey folks, today we take on the rest of Mt Gulug along with Meltigemini, the boss :). There's a wee bit more to it too but that's for you to see lol.

You might have noticed that there haven't been any uploads for a bit and it's nothing serious. It just might take a bit of time for me to be in the right state of mind to get back into the routine. I hope you understand :s.

I had this episode stored in case this happened so there won't be any more for a bit probably. Be back with you when I feel up to it.

Thanks for watching :).
