Hey there folks, here comes a new series that I hope you'll all enjoy! Final Fantasy 6 has been known to be one of the best in the series and I'm going to try and showcase just why that is ;).

For those who don't know about this game (for shame!) it's an old-school JRPG, complete with turn based random encounters and a huge party roster! They all have an in-depth story too (except for one or two near the end). It's pretty unique in the sense that the main protagonist can't be 100% picked out. Is it the first party member you meet? Or someone who gains more of the limelight later on? That's for you to decide! I should probably give a shout out to the soundtrack too!

Final Fantasy 6 (or 3 as it was once known) is available for a variety of platforms: SNES, PS1, GBA and (the version I'll be playing) for Gamecube; the Gamecube version is just the GBA version played on the Nintendo Gamecube Player however. It's also available on the Wii's Virtual Console and the PS3's PSN Store, so there are plenty of ways to grab a copy for a cheap price :).

My reason for choosing the GBA version over the PS1 version? Loading times. It's instantaneous on the GBA version, while the PS1 version must have taken roughly 5 seconds each time you wanted to open the main menu...ain't nobody got time for that!

Anyways, here's a link to a quick wiki if you want to find out a little bit more about the game:

http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Final_Fantasy_VI

And here's the opening that's shown before the main menu:

I hope you all enjoy what's coming! :)

Of course, FF6 was not made by me at all. Look towards Square for all that. As this will be the GBA version, it was distributed via Nintendo :).



My most recent 3 let's plays:

Zelda: Oracle of Seasons - Link (Din, Onox, Maku...I'm so funny)
Killer7 (Completed) - Link
Luigi's Mansion (Completed!) - Link

Episode 1 - The Best Opening Song

http://youtu.be/vRpl3QvJuqA


Welcome all to our brand new let's play! Episode 1 has plenty going on, from the opening song (so amazing!) to the introduction of our main(?) character and our first steps into Narshe. Also, Narshe Mines are pretty fun, but that esper will take a bit more effort to find :D.

Also, keep a look out for two cameo characters. I'm sure you'll notice them :).

Thanks for watching folks! We'll be finding out more about the mysterious girl next episode...we'll also take on our first boss 0_0. Byes!

Episode 2 - Terra, Meet Locke!

http://youtu.be/5h3_WyrJi9Y



Hey all! Things change pretty drastically in this episode! In the last episode, we were hunting an esper...in this episode, we're being hunted and have to go on the run! Ok, so as you may have guessed already, we find out weird esper in the Narshe Mines, but not before we take on:

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

Ymir Strategy:

- Use Micro Missile with the mystery girl
- Heal with Biggs and Wedge, if anyone's health gets too low
- Use anything other than thunder beam when you attack
- Do not attack if the snail has receded into its shell !important!

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

Yep, our first boss! He's not too bad though really.

Turns out that the mystery girl wasn't doing anything of her own accord though...it's time for us to leg it through the mines and escape Narshe! It also turns out that there's a huge problem with this strategy though...

See you next time when we see if Locke and the moogles can help us! :)

What a coincidence! I was just playing FF VI on the Game Boy Player the other day. It's even twice as fun with Game Shark. ;-)

Episode 4 - A Royal Pervert

http://youtu.be/SxjM-oqvhfc


Hello peoples, this here episode introduces us to another new party member: Edgar! He may be a perv but damnit, he's our perv! I worry for Terra, I really do :/

Anyways, Figaro Castle is such a nice place. I never normally like the castles in JRPGs ('cause they're normally huge and I always get lost) but this one is perdy and small. The fact that it can...do what it does in this episode is pretty amazing too! Is it cowardly or is it a good way to protect the people in the castle? A bit of both maybe.

Besides all this, we face another "boss"!

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

Magitek Armor x 2:

- Use Auto-Crossbow with Edgar each turn
- Cure with Terra if necessary
- Attack with Locke
- Easy times!

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

Did I really not mention that we get introduced to Kefka in this episode? Wows...

See you next time when we see just what our first proper dungeon is like! Thanks for watching :)

Episode 5 - One Man And His Dog

http://youtu.be/HCxhAc7v3r8


Ok, so when I was recording this episode, I thought I didn't get much done. I guess completing a dungeon and checking out a new town in one episode is pretty good though.

The first proper dungeon is really short and all the enemies can be beat with a good auto-crossbow. Still, it's nice to have a bit of cave-wandering sometimes. The music is good too :D. I've got to wonder why the name of the cave isn't given when you enter. I really should have checked the name of it in the main menu :/

Also, the town of South Figaro...there are plenty of barrels there aren't there? ;)

Thanks for watching :)

Episode 6 - Blitzing Through Mt Kolts!

http://youtu.be/TAc8fVkozf0


Hey everyone, here comes an episode with a proper, full-on dungeon! It's the first place where I would say you could get stuck...I know I used to!

Before that though (we're getting a bit ahead of ourselves!), we check out where Edgar's brother (Sabin) has been living and see that he likes his cabbages.

As for Mt Kolts, keep following the shadow and you'll eventually make it to the boss. There are a few reasonably good treasures on the way up too, so try to grab them :).

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

Vargas and Ipooh (x2) Strategy:

- Take down the bears first. As always, Auto-Crossbow is a good way to go.
- Cure with Terra, or use Fire if you have plenty of HP and MP left.
- Stealing is pretty pointless on this boss. A potion isn't worth the time or effort.
- Attack with Locke.

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

Vargas Part 2:

- Go to Blitz
- Press A on Blitz
- Press right, left, right
- Press A
- Boss done!
------------------------------------------------------

So with Sabin the marital artist in our party, it's time to continue on towards the Returners' Hideout! That'll be next time though, so I'll see you there. Thanks for watching :)

------------------------------------------------------
Episode 7 - Terra's Spellbinding Decision

http://youtu.be/OCYSnDcK1uk


Hey everyone, what we have here is a shortish episode showing the rest of Mt Kolts and the plan that's ahead for the Returners! For you see...we made it to the hideout!

It turns out that we need to split up from Locke and become a party of 3 once again. He needs to stay behind with the Returners, y'know?

But no! We get a different 4th party member called Banon! He's really weak and should definitely be thrown in the back row and should never attack. I'll chuck some more info up about him in the next episode :).

Thanks for watching! See you when we check out the river...

Episode 8 - Uncle Ulty Arrives!

http://youtu.be/DNmFT1zsiFA


Hellos everyone! This episode showcases all of the Lethe River, which is pretty easy, but can be time-consuming if you get lost in the currents. We also have ze boss to take down...

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

Ultros:

- Burn him with fire!
- Blitz away with the left, right, left command!
- Auto-Crossbow his arse!
- Make sure Banon is in the back row and heal every turn without fail!
- Use a phoenix down whenever someone dies. They may be expensive but it's better that people live to fight another day.

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

Ultros is pretty tough, I think. His attacks are incredibly powerful and he can attack twice in one turn :/. Being in blind isn't really a problem though.

Aaaaand with Sabin out of the picture, we make it to the end of the river! Now for something a bit different! I'm not going to record any more for a day or two and we'll see what order you guys want to see the scenarios in! Chuck me a comment/post/PM/whatever saying which you'd like to see:

1) Terra and the gang
2) Locke
3) Sabin


Each of these are very different and will be fun for different reasons.

Thanks for watching sirs and madams :)

Episode 9 - A Ninja's Day Out

http://youtu.be/NuPs5J15U6o


Hey there everyone, the majority vote is in and it looks like we're starting with Sabin! Considering he's the newest character that we haven't used for long, it makes sense really.

We also get to grab a new party member today too. A certain ninja and his dog that we met drinking his sorrows away a while back. He's pretty useful if you buy some shurikens and throw them...but for now attacking is more than enough to beat the enemies.

You know you've got it tough when you need to sneak through an empire's camp. Especially with Kefka waiting around...you'd think he was a waiter! We also get to meet general Leo, who is actually kinda nice. Who knew it was possible?

Aaaand finally, we meet Cyan the Samurai in Doma Castle! More about that next time ;)

Thanks for watching :)

Episode 10 - Kefka's Poisonous Plan

http://youtu.be/aK5SKoyfYhM


Hey all, here comes an episode where we control Cyan and try to protect Doma Castle! This samurai is incredibly powerful...but you just have to wait for his attacks to "load". Whether you want him to counter attack, half the enemy's health or just attack, he's gonna be great!

Unfortunately though, as soon as we grab Cyan, we lose Shadow :(. Still...Cyan is better.

Fiiinally, we make it to the Phantom Train, which is one of my favourite dungeons in the entire game :D. See you next time when we make our way through and take on the rather unique boss!

Thanks for watching :)

Episode 11 - Doomtrain's Relative

http://youtu.be/J4fvqo6cBmw


Hey all, are you ready for possibly my favourite dungeon in the game? The phantom train takes the dead to the afterlife...and it looks like we're trapped on it unless we can stop it!

Try grabbing a ghost to get him in your party. He's not permanent or anything...and he's pretty shit...but damn it! He can possess people and may actually be good for using items!

As for the boss:

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

Phantom Train Strategy:

- Use Blitz with Sabin
- Wait for Cyan's level 3 attack, which will halve the enemy's current HP. Use this twice.
- Attack away with your best moves...but be quick about it!

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

Ok, so that's another tough boss defeated! Only...we jump down a waterfall and face another! Just use Cyan's level 1 attack and Sabin blitz to make it through pretty easily though.

See you next time when we find out more about Gau and the Veldt! I wonder if we'll make it back to Narshe...

Thanks for watching! :)

Episode 12 - Meeting The Blue Mage

http://youtu.be/8B5QOyJqqBU


Hello peoples, this episode is all about the Veldt and Gau. Learning moves with Gau is incredibly annoying...but isn't that always the case for the blue mages? I don't much like him in battle in general to be honest, 'cause to use him properly you have to lose all control of him. Oh wells...he's good enough for now ;).

However, I love his character! How he annoys everyone and really acts like a little kid...which I don't think he is anymore? Not if he can keep up with Sabin anyways ha.

Shall see you next time when we finish off Sabin Week (which I so did not make up right this moment rather than at the very start of the scenario)!

Thanks for watching :)

Episode 13 - Shiny Mr Thou!

http://youtu.be/0T3cmMubszA


Hey all, here comes the last of Sabin's Scenario! We get to check out the shiny shiny shiny thing as Mr Thou and also check out what was a pretty revolutionary bit of game design back in the days of the SNES.

I always find the underwater part to be pretty hard, but it's good for trying out Gau's rage commands so it's not all bad. Don't worry about which directions you choose under there...it doesn't make too much difference.

As for Nikeah, there are a few new pieces of equipment, but you won't really miss out on much if you skip the shops. You may still want to go for the elixir in the clock though?

And there we have it! I'll see you next time when we start on the next scenario which, whichever one we choose, will be much shorter than Sabin's.

Thank you for watching :)

P.S. Kupo

Episode 14 - Stop Rescuing Damsels, Boy!

http://youtu.be/nkhFD_XlryA


Hey all, here comes Locke's Scenario! This will only last for two episodes, so it's much shorter than Sabin's. It's pretty much one big puzzle-style trek back through South Figaro. Think stealth and you'll have a pretty good idea of what's coming.

We also gain a new character and I have to say that Celes is so close to being my favourite one in FF6! She just about gets beaten by Terra...just about! We'll find out more about her in the next episode...see you there!

Thanks for watching :)

P.S. I'll never fall asleep sir...

Also, I snipped the video well at the end, I did! : D

Episode 15 - One Final Obstacle

http://youtu.be/qe6u8LD5AvI


Hey all, this turned out to be a pretty short episode because of...a certain person (who shall remain nameless) getting lost. However! This means that we found a few hidden treasure chests and us gaining quite a few levels!

We make it back through a past cave too, which turns out to be pretty much the same, but with an added threat at the end:

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

Tunnel Armor Strategy:

- Use Rune with Celes every turn that both members have above about 100HP.
- Use Cure otherwise and quickly get Rune back up to absorb more magic.
- Just attack with Locke (maybe use a potion here and there if necessary).

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

And there we have it! Locke's scenario is completely done! It looks like even Mog is leveling up and is on his way to becoming SUPER MOG! Or...not :/

Thanks for watching folks! We'll go for Terra's scenario next time :)

P.S. This will be uploaded every other day from now on, with Rain filling in the gaps :)
