Have Fun Storming the Castle! – Final Fantasy II #13

The Emperor is dead, Long Live the Emperor, am I right? So now we have to fight our way through the conspicuously empty Imperial capital to have a heart to heart in a long anticipated meeting with the one and only Dark Knight.

Let’s Do The Twist(er) – Final Fantasy II #12

So uh… now there’s a tornado. I guess we gotta figure that one out somehow. But hey, supposedly the Emperor of Palamecia is in there. Is this the end at long last?

In the Belly of the Beast – Final Fantasy II #11

With the Crystal Stick in hand, we are set to break into the tower and claim THE ULTIMATE MAGIC, right? Not so fast. Turns out there was a previously never mentioned final defense mechanism: Leviathan. Now we’ve got to rock it like Pinocchio and bust out of this sea monsters belly before ascending the Mysidia Tower to check out a book. Better be worth it.

Is This The Best Dungeon In The Game?! – Final Fantasy II #10

Playing with expectations, clever defenses, and tricks that will leave you wandering for hours? Have we found an actual good dungeon in this game? After hunting down both the Black and White Masks, we are due for a win.

Shadowbringers Story Summary Part 1 Now LIVE!

On Monday night, I put a poll on my Twitter asking people whether they would prefer the Shadowbringers Story Summary to be released all at once at a later date or for it to be released piece by piece as they were ready. The latter was overwhelmingly the choice with 75% of the vote. So with that decision in mind, I’m happy to announce that the First Part of the Shadowbringers Story Summary is now available to enjoy.

This story summary appears to be taking longer than I had originally hoped and planned because of the sheer size of it. The Shadowbringers story is immense. For example: this first part comprises the start of the Main Scenario to the first dungeon – roughly levels 70 to 71 – and is already larger than half of the base 4.0 Stormblood Story Summary. For that reason, I don’t have an exact time table for these releases. I am actively replaying the story on my alt (pictured) to try and double check I didn’t miss anything with my notes (Turns out I did. A lot.)

That said I will keep everyone apprised of the updates via blog posts like this one. In the mean time, if you are hungry for more Final Fantasy content, I could recommend the Land of Odd’s very own Final Fantasy Retrospective. I just finished Final Fantasy II on the stream archive and the edited videos release every #FinalFantasyFriday over on the main YouTube channel with the second game in the series looking to wrap up at the end of September. Final Fantasy III will be starting soon over on my Twitch channel. Hope you can come and enjoy!
