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 jump through a bunch of essential speed running tips from throughout disc 2 of FFIX. I first show off how to get through the third battle with Beatrix. Then I show how to skewer a giant green worm in 3 rounds of combat. Next I demonstrate how to defeat Lani without much of a fuss. I then take on a Green Giant who is less than jolly. Next up is a mono-a-mono with Amarant that is full of tactful dodging and relentless attacks. I finish things up by killing the easiest boss in the game in one hit! Don't miss the fun of the Endurance Run!
