Here is the latest Deep Look! Deep Looks are largely gameplay and commentary like a Giantbomb quicklook; however, I try to cover games that have been out for a while and I intend to use the videos to highlight moments and mechanics that I found particularly worthy of highlighting and exploring. Also I aim to keep the videos under 20 minutes.
In this Deep Look I continue my preparations for my Final Fantasy IX speed run in the Giantbomb Community Endurance Run. The GB Community Endurance Run is going to be raising money for Pencils of Promise, a charity that builds schools, trains teachers, and puts kids through school in developing nations, from April 10th through 12th. You can even name FFIX characters if you include the character and the name you would like with your donation!
In this video I switch up the format a little bit and jump through a bunch of essential speed running tips from throughout disc 1 of FFIX. I first show off how to get through the battle with Black Waltz 2 quickly and safely. Then I show how to finish the Festival of the Hunt in record time while still rigging the event to give you the best prize. Next I demonstrate how to move around FFIX's world map without running into random battles (for the most part). I finish the video up by showing how to beat Gizmaluke, the most dangerous boss in disc 1 of FFIX, quickly and safely. Don't miss this panoply of hot tips!
