Games I beat in 2015 - #34: Final Fantasy (PSP)
Funny that one of the first and one of the last games I played this year was a version of Final Fantasy. The third Final Fantasy game I've speed run (at least part of) this year. It's another tournament which I am thinking will be a jolly good time.
This run relies heavily on a glitch that allows you to equip extremely powerful weapon and armor by pressing L and/or R with the confirm button at the same time to essentially set a weapon ID to an armor slot or vice versa. So what this means is a simple Steel Glove can be used to give each of your four party members the most powerful sword normally only available in the super-extra-bonus dungeon.
While this makes most of the game "easy", executing it becomes the challenge. Moving around the maps, knowing which battles can be escaped from and which you have to fight your way out of and handling your character's health values so you don't have to spend too much time in menus. I've beaten it under an hour and forty five minutes so far, and look forward to doing it in less.
