The Final Fantasy Project: Final Fantasy IV, part 4
The last time around for this column, things really picked up in Final Fantasy IV. Betrayals, loss, sabotage, and other unpleasant events! It was nifty. For the audience, anyway. For Cecil, it's kind of a pile of crap, as he's lost literally everything yet again and now has no idea where in the hell he...
Becoming a pangolin!
As someone who is not, on the main, a fan of Final Fantasy IV, I honestly didn't realize that the whole paladin conversion thing happened this soon. I somehow thought it was later, you know? But no, this celebrated plot point of the game takes place when I'm not all that far into the actual game. Also with a bit less pomp and ceremony than seems appropriate. Seriously, for all the talk about how this is a huge shift, most of the game takes place after Cecil stops being a Dark Knight. I appreciate that it's at least late enough that the characters don't feel like they've just been introduced before this happens, I suppose. I do hope you enjoy this segment, as the plot of the game in general is really feast-or-famine (as well as featuring a collection of barely-defined stereotypes) and this is one of the feastier portions. Stuff to be said, and all. Tune in next week for a whole lot more mess for Cecil!
