hey guys
do you know what time it is

it's time for MORE FFIV WOO YEAH hey, I actually didn't procrastinate too badly this time! Awesome.

When we last left off, Cecil went to Mt. Ordeals to become an hero a paladin, defeated Milon (his death still gets me all choked up guys), then walked up to a monolith and it was like MAH SOOOONNNNNNNNN and then everyone disappeared. WHAT A HELL IS GOING ON? FIND OUT!

Previous episodes




Heeeeeeyyy this makes me think of this one fanfic I read. I think it took place here! If it did then that's neat, since I had forgotten all about it and was all confused when it came up in the fic. Hahaha.
Anyway, The Lunarians chimes in here. Sort of pretty and mysterious and kind of has a foreboding feeling to it. It does to me, anyway.




gee, thanks





MOON PRISM POWER MAAAAAKEEEEE-UP
*rocks out*







HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA i mean no, you look great




I never knew the sacred power of light was so snobby.










I think there's something to indicate that Dark*Cecil hits Light*Cecil, like a screen flash or a noise or something. I can't remember, though.






GET A HAIRCUT





The Red Wings theme plays during this.
So, how do you beat Dark*Cecil? I'll get into that in a sec. BUT FIRST





HEY IT'S what was it called... according to this thing I'm lookin' at, it's Ankoku, or "Pitch Black." I could've sworn it was something else in the GBA version, but I can't remember and I'm too lazy to look it up. PITCH BLACK IT IS!
Anyway, this was actually one of the skills that was removed from Easytype. Not sure why Dark*Cecil can use it in this battle... anyway, it pretty much just shoots these bolts of energy at you while draining the caster's HP a little. It targets entire groups instead of just an individual. Yup. Sucks that it got removed, since it was really handy for random battles :O




Hahahahahaha not the most sagely-sounding advice. I think in the GBA version it's something like "A true paladin would sheathe his sword" or something. SOMETHING ALONG THOSE LINES.
Anyway, yeah, to defeat Dark*Cecil, you pretty much just have to stand there and wait for the battle to end. You CAN defeat him by fighting, but it takes a while and can suck if you don't have a lot of potions or the paladin equips and stuff (there's a way you can equip them during battle, or at least the shield. it's in the item menu somewhere :V). I always just wait it out.






Cecil can cast white magic, now! It sucks, but it can actually be pretty handy -- what I like to do when I'm in a difficult dungeon and there's people I need to heal is have Cecil heal them until he runs out of MP, THEN resort to items or someone else who can heal instead. Since Cecil's the tank of the game there's really no reason he'd even need that MP in the first place, as opposed to a mage, where MP is like their life source. I feel like that explanation didn't make a lot of sense, but yeah! You can actually save a lot of items and vital MP this way :D






lol what







His mother was a hamster and his father was a disembodied voice?












TADAAHHHH



Cue dramatic riff that lasts for exactly five hours.









YOU JUST CAN'T LET CECIL HAVE THE SPOTLIGHT CAN YOU TELLAH








YOU'RE MAKING ALL THIS UP AREN'T YOU









TELLAH I SWEAR >(















L'OREAL
BECAUSE I'M WORTH IT




Cecil can actually do damage to undead monsters, now! Yessssssss



You may have noticed a couple screenshots back that Cecil was level 1. YOU'RE GONNA BE SEEING THIS MESSAGE A LOT :O I think he gained five or six levels just from this battle alone. Also, wow, Cecil is the strongest level 1 character ever



So when you leave Mt. Ordeals, you have two choices. You can either walk back to Mysidia, which is good if you're wanting to level Cecil some more.



Orrrrrrr, if you're lazy like I am...



Chocobo! I'LL LEVEL CECIL LATER WHO CARES plus I just wanted to hear the music



Back to the future Mysidia :O



HA HA HOO YOU SURE DID BOY I TELL YOU WHAT









HUH? SPIRIT OF THE WHAT?






RAZZLEDAZZLE, TRULY THE FINEST ASPECT OF PALADINHOOD



Yeah, well.
Your face






I'm just waiting for Cecil to break into Peasley and/or Redd White-esque sparkles








Aw. You tried, Porom. Tellah just interrupted you >(









Aaaaand some crappy poem slowly appears on the screen, one line at a time, but I skipped all the fade-y stuff for you guys and just left the final product. YOU GUYS CAN USE YOUR IMAGINATION OR SOMETHING, WHATEVER



Deep.

Also wow, all that was inscribed on the sword?




THANKS A LOT






OLDGUY BUDDIES! Lemon party. wait
Also lol, the Elder just now noticed Tellah standing there |B I ALWAYS THOUGHT TELLAH STOOD OUT PRETTY EASILY MYSELF, BUT






Anna's death = world crisis.





Elder: OLD







There's a joke in here somewhere and I just can't place a finger on it.










oh god they're werewolves aren't they





SOMETHING ABOUT THIS MAKES ME LAUGH SO MUCH






You do that, guys.



BRINGS BACK MEMORIES DON'T IT CECIL







Wow I thought that said "The destiny is written on your hands" at first and I was like what



Wooooo. Now on to newer screenshots!










I don't have an .mp3 or anything, but this quiet, creepy kinda music plays while you warp. Well, not really music, actually. Sounds. I DUNNO










Good old Baron :> So corrupt.



A KARATE MAN YOU SAY :O :O



Cecil: *wibbles with joy*



From the looks of it, I think "giving us a hard time" is sort of an understatement



So random townspeople know Cid was arrested and his daughter doesn't? :< That's kind of sad, actually.



UHHHH FUNNY YOU SHOULD MENTION THAT



...that has got to be the most hilarious law ever.
AND ALL THAT DANCING GOING ON IN THE TOWN? NO MORE! I WANT OUR CHILDREN TO GROW UP IN A DANCE-FREE SOCIETY




Ewwwww, soggy tents.



TIME TO PAY THIS "KARATE MAN" A VISIT



But first, time-wasting!



BUT DANCING ISN'T ALLOWED :< If only the Elite Beat Agents were here.



I'M GONNA GETCHA



Hahahahaha what are they even doing that's so terrible? Making lewd comments to the waitress or something?





YOU TERRIBLE SOLDIERS, ASKING FOR REFRESHMENTS. Actually, there's just something really hilarious about him bellowing out "BRING ME REFRESHMENTS" and I don't know what.
The other soldier says the same thing, by the way.




I DON'T WANT A PAMPHLET GET OFF MY PORCH




Guards are annoying, mainly because they keep casting "Size" (Small) on your party members and shrinking them. This pretty much has the same effect as Toad, in which the member's offence and defence are reduced to pretty much nothing and they can't use magic. Very frustrating. Other than that, this is pretty easy :V





"...but I'm gonna attack anyway!"
Again, easy. I just had Porom and Polom use Twin, Cecil attack, and Tellah heal and cast various spells. Yup.



Ow :(



I DON'T KNOW WHAT... MAYBE IT'S THE LACK OF PUNCTUATION
BUT THIS MAKES ME BURST INTO LAUGHTER EVERY TIME I LOOK AT IT





Haha, I can finally show this to you guys! Out of all the times I've used Twin, this is the first time I got Comet. Either Comet is more rare, or I'm just lucky.









B-but you just said you recognized Cecil a minute ago, when you were trying to kill him and all. I'm so confused



What.






Poor Rydia :( And Edward, I guess.





What soldiers?





Hooray!







...uhhhh, last time I checked, Tellah wasn't Edward's father. I mean, if Tellah were his father, then that would mean he and Anna...
...
I wanna know exactly how much fanfiction has spawned from this line alone.




I wish "Karate Master" was a major in college. I would so get a Ph.D in that








LAUGHING SO HARD







They didn't really make it clear here, but I'm assuming Yang searched his pockets or something. HOW DID HE GET IT? YOU DECIDE! ow why does my throat hurt all of a sudden







We can finally access the Weapon Shop! I got Yang some stuff here :D




Alright guys. LET'S BREAK INTO THE CASTLE.



Except then I remembered that I might wanna save before going on so I went onto the world map. Then I accidentally when on the castle grounds :B OH HI GUYS, LONG TIME NO SEE. WELL I GOTTA GET BACK TO BREAKING IN I MEAN UH DOING MY LAUNDRY HA HA WELL SEE YA



Okay, NOW let's break into the castle!






Wooooo monsters. AQUA WORM :V



I ran a lot while I was going through here, mainly because I was getting sick of random encounters and just wanted to move on. Seriously, they popped up EVERYWHERE. It got to where I started to wish this was Pokemon, so I could just use a Max Repel and not worry about it :(
Oh yeah, and you can drop GP when you run. It kind of sucks later in the game -- I remember running from stuff in the final dungeon and dropping thousands at a time. Then again, you also GAIN thousands, but y'know.



You can't actually go into the water, here. Those stairs are just there to TAUNT YOU



Wooooooooo KH2 flashbacks




STUPID GUARDS WITH THEIR SHRINKING asdfdsafsdf







And then, of course, I take the opprotunity to examine the different sprites. I dunno man



Y'know, this walkthrough I was looking at was like OKAY ONCE YOU GET IN THE MOTE BE SURE TO GET OUT AS FAST AS YOU CAN IF YOU GET HURT ON THE WAY THEN GO SLEEP IN CECIL'S ROOM but nothing happened, and I've never heard of anything ever happening on this screen. I even walked around a lot to see if I'd trigger anything, but... nothing. Anyone know about this?



Anyway.




OH, IT'S YOU







GREAT |<











your loyalty is unwavering indeed





Baigan isn't too tough. Use Twin, have Cecil and Yang attack, and have Tellah heal. Don't bother attacking Baigan's arms, since they'll just regenerate, as you can see from these shots. Yeah, ewww. Also, don't have Tellah cast any magic on Baigan's body, or else he'll automatically throw up a Wall (Reflect) which will reflect any magic spells you cast, including Twin.



Tellah kept DYING DURING THIS BATTLE AHSGFLKAJSDGAHFDSGKJ







I had 'em rest up after that battle, for reasons you'll see in a second.






"You were supposed to become a mailman."





Not the most subtle of villains, is he







Didn't capture this very well, but what's-his-face blinked into view, then the king's sprite sort of... jumped out and disappeared. Maybe he's THROWING AWAY THE CORPSE or something.




Kainazzo, that's his name! It was originally Cagnazzo :O



Let's seeeeeee... for Kainazzo I just used Twin, had Cecil and Yang attack, and had Tellah heal and cast Ice3. Ice is especially effective when he's in this state.




When Kainazzo starts to gather water, you have to use Lit3 on him (or some other lightning spell, I guess, but I prefer 3). Not only is he very weak against lightning in this state, but it also cancels out his spell, which is Wave.





Sadly, Tellah didn't cast Lit3 fast enough D: At least that gives me a chance to show you Wave.



Wow, this was cool. Cecil and Yang had already done a little damage, but when Tellah casted Lit3 it did over 3000, which KO'ed Kainazzo (he only has 4000 HP, I think). AWESOME








CID! :O








Golbez: Kidnapper and Airship Abuser. That swine







OLD FIGHT






Something about the "oh please stop" sounds sarcastic somehow







W...what about Porom?












And so, the party files out, and it was at this point I realized I forgot to unequip certain people. *dun dun dunnnnn*







HEE HAR HAR HA




The room starts a-rumblin'.



WALLS EVERYWHERE!





THIS DOESN'T LOOK GOOD :O



What I don't get is why they can't burn down the doors or something. They're just little wooden ones, after all.













Hahaha Yang






I just imagine him saying this in a sort of whiny, annoyed tone














Heh, this kinda reminds me of Seto from FF7. Except I don't think they ever actually gave a reason as to why he couldn't turn back, did they?










AVENGE AVENGE AVENGE, THAT'S ALL YOU TWO CARE ABOUT






But... but wasn't it Kainazzo who did this? I mean, I know he works for Golbez and everything, but




KAAAAAAIIIIIIIINNNNNN







Hahahaha this reminds me of this story my grandpa tells where he went to India (I think it was India, anyway), and some guy offered him two rugs and a camel in exchange for grandma, and my grandpa was like MAKE IT TWO CAMELS |D and grandma just smacked him over the head








By trading her for a crystal?






what



OH okay.




Walkin' on a bridge in SPACE, APPARENTLY








HEY, NERDS
GET THE REFERENCE?






WOOSH





for CRACK i mean wait







Hahahahaha did they just have some guy haul out that bridge or something




Kain walks real slow-like, ahyuk




I remember in the GBA version he's like SO YOU'RE STILL AMONG THE LIVING I SEE HA HA HA but in this he actually sounds kind of sincere. Maybe it's just me.







Fun Fact: In the original script, Kain's line is something like "If you ever want to see your little whore again, you'll bring us the Crystal of the Earth." I heard this isn't the first time Rosa gets called a whore, but I can't remember the other. Still, this is great. BURRRRRRNNNNN











Heeeeeey this actually kind of reminds me of Kingdom Hearts. What, with the whole "main character's best friend gets possessed by the main villain and kidnaps the main character's girlfriend and holds her hostage" thing. Not to mention all the babbling about light and dark. Does anyone else see it? :O









"Cid?"



"What-- what control pad? And what do you mean by A-Button?!"





Cid's portrait, lol. Creepy.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT, YOU ASK?
LET'S FIND OUT
NEXT TIME

I got a little too passionate while trying to make my Peasley Mii become a boxing champion and now my arms have been all messed up for the past few days. They're just really sore now, but before it was actually kind of hard to hold them up and lift things and stuff. YOU MIGHT BE A WEAKLING WHEN WII SPORTS EQUALS STRENUOUS EXERCISE. Though in my defence, Wii Boxing is pretty tiring.

MY BROTHER'S PLAYING A GIG HERE YAAAAAY I think he's coming on the 29th :D :D I dunno whether he's staying for Halloween or not, but I really hope he does. I don't think I've ever spent Halloween with him before, or at least I've never gone trick-or-treating with him, so that would really be cool. Though even if he does stay, I doubt I could convince him to go with me. BUT I CAN TRY

Man, I could really go for some Swedish Fish right now.
