Here is a Baby Deep Look! My usual Deep Look videos focus in on a cool gameplay mechanic or story element from a game I have played the heck out of, in the hopes that I can share what makes that mechanic so cool. This Baby Deep Look is just as deep as a normal video, but I focus on a mechanic or ability that is so small that the video is much shorter than usual. I aim to keep Baby Deep Looks around 5 minutes long. These videos should be small little observational nuggets that hopefully give you some useful insight into a game's design that you might not have noticed otherwise.
In this teensy-weensy Deep Look, Rothgar and I show off one of the most interesting passive abilities in FF9: Protect Girls. We show off how early in the game you can get this ability and how the game uses this ability to define its main character. We also point out how unique this ability is its deployment. (I know that my pronunciation of Zidane is not "correct" but I've been pronouncing the name the wrong way for so long that I didn't notice while recording so sorry if it bothers you.)
I have a full Deep Look processing right now that should go up later this week as well. Thank you magical El Gato for allowing me to record consoles!
