Final Fantasy IV Let's Play: Oh Right, That's How You Beat Dark Elf (Now With Timestamps!)

Final Fantasy IV Let's Play: Oh Right, That's How You Beat Dark Elf (Now With Timestamps!)

Our Let's Play of Final Fantasy continues, now with handy timestamps so you can jump to the best parts!

In the latest episode of my ongoing Final Fantasy IV Let's Play, I realize that I don't remember nearly enough of what actually happens in this game!

In the last episode, I made it all the way up to Mt. Ordeals and successfully managed to get Paladin-ified. In this episode, plenty more happens! For your convenience, I'm including timestamps so that you can jump to the most interesting parts of the Let's Play.

Through most of this episode I kept telling myself, "You know, I swear there's a secret to beating Dark Elf. But what is it?" Naturally, I didn't bother exploring the castle where I could find my answer. First rule of RPGs! Talk to everyone! I bet that what would have been really annoying in 1991, though.

Enjoying the Let's Play? I'll be back on Thursday (and possibly Friday) with Episode 4! Mark your calendars!
