TXC2: title change!
TehAmelie: very pro-abuse crap. but a little fear maybe makes it real
beowuuf: yay

Diabore: that is all my comment
JDMan94: YES, Intermission is very good
RayFK: Me neither! I wanted to wait until PS5 was obtained
RayFK: I have now done so, it's onthe list
CartoonTattoo: @keroan0 If you drink a lot at parties, but are a good attendee, this often happens anyway
richard_ermen: Amazing, I just finished the previous Play it Forward ^^
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I got a PSP entirely to play MGS Peacewalker and let me tell you if you ever wanted to play SimMercenaryCorps this is the game for you.
BrowneePoints: I love the FF7 Remake on most things except Barrett's Voice
Gaz_L: in fairness, only Cloud is really dressed weird
KevinTheShark: Yuffie is fun. There is some weirdness, certainly
malsareus: powerful protagonist syndrome
jacqui_lantern234: "some idiot from today" is a vibe ngl
TXC2: "fashion, fashion never changes"
Mr_Horrible: wow, graphic tees and jeans as far as the eye can see Kappa
LadyLockwood92: Mhm. I can see how that would kinda pull you out of the world.
Gaz_L: Aerith's wearing a summer dress and a cardigan
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Peacewalker IMO was pretty ahead of it’s time with the gameplay loop but no one noticed because no one played it
CecilHoshino: What you're saying is we should have the bravery to dress like Barrett
Andymonium: there was a speech, some guy rolled a 20...
Mr_Horrible: no, I was at the parade for the new console instead
JDMan94: I know people are like "man they show a lotta skin" in this game. but they live in a DESERT
Diabore: he talked about how he wasnt gonna murder us all but i dont buy it
odium_chlorite: in before Sephirot shows up in the supreme coat
WearingCats_CwC: I mean in the original FF7 people just kind of wore slabs of colour
KevinTheShark: Well, it depends if people are dressed like main characters or not
Didero: Excuse you, I'm a person and I can be pretty stupid Kappa
shawnchon: The beard <3
BrowneePoints: People are Dumb, Panicky, Dangerous Animals and you know it
KingJimmeh: The NPC designs in Remake is definitely a valid complete
TehAmelie: someone mentioned, the NPCs are dressing like they had licence systems and can't afford full sets of clothes
Gekyouryuu: "some of you may die, but that is a sacrifice I am willing to make." - Vayne, probably
malsareus: gotta led the sweat out
inetro: Cheer100 Just finished your FF7 playthrough last night and wanted to say thanks for going through these games! I never got the change to play 7 or 12 growing up and you make the experience a ton of fun!
jacqui_lantern234: so are there Desert Busses in this Desert Town?!
Mordin_Solus_Sings: @JDMan94 And it's everyone showing skin, not exclusively the women.
TehAmelie: this game
LordShadner: where is their singly armored arm? Kappa
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: license to wear pants
TXC2: letting the seat out when you're in a desert is a bad idea :p
JDMan94: @mordin_solus_sings EXACTLY, equal opportunity
odium_chlorite: @JDMan94 counterpoint, people that actually live in the desert actually tend to wear A LOT of clothing
RyubosJ: oh i was just watching episode 1
TXC2: *sweat
BrowneePoints: I mean, they live in an Arid climate and people dress like they live in an Arid climate
SerGarretCameron: I think it's the banga alone by the pillar.
Mr_Horrible: gotta go kill thar weird tomato if you want to legally weird a hat
CartoonTattoo: @JDMan94 I'm pretty sure you actually are supposed to try and stay somewhat covered in a desert, contrary to popular belief? Otherwise you risk serious sunburn. You just need to wear breathable clothing.
malsareus: strong choice
Prop_PT: John Cena fell a long way
TXC2: also Deserts get REAL cold at night
Ryxiene: It's a statement lol
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I think it depends if you’re in a dry climate a humid climate or a DESERT-desert climate
Didero: Girdle & Jorts, crime fighters
goatprince: nips out, like all standard desert peoples
malsareus: makes a real statement
BigDaddyBland87: it's a bold look
ContingentCat: it's quite a look
LadyLockwood92: You know what, fair play to him. It's a tough look to pull off.
TheMandrew: gotta keep the abs covered
incslayer: maybe its a combination corset girdle? the "cordle or maybe a girset?
jamesk902: Ah yes, beloved childrens' show Girdle and Jorts.
AugmentingPath: ah, my dear departed grandmother, Gerdaline Jorts
jacqui_lantern234: "Gurdle and Jorts" is the name of my new Simon and Garfunkel cover band!!!!!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Oh Girdle & Jorts was my favorite kids cartoon
malsareus: secret tunnel
Narcuru: a velvet rope
northos: ah, the impassable velvet rope
ContingentCat: through the mountain?
nyperold: Yeah, and sunburn is the SHORT-TERM concern.
Gaz_L: i literally just played the OG FF7, FF7R, Intermission and Crisis Core all one after the other... i think Remake made an interesting choice by trying to make 'adhering to the original story' an antagonist in itself, but not sure it works
Mr_Horrible: barricaded by norms
BrowneePoints: we need a denim Girdle Graham. The Jirdle
RayFK: The people of Midgard, big fans of "Aged Mariners"
GapFiller: yr can tell XII and Vagrant Story share a setting from the outfit
GDwarble: Mere mortals cannot pass velvet ropes, it is beyond us
TXC2: !searchfortreasure

princess_intell: ugh I'm waiting for my work laptop to update
Fr0Dough: Best I can do is wandering monster
AugmentingPath: okay, rub yourself on every surface
Andymonium: has anyone told that bangaa that their boombox is broken? they're just carrying it around not making any noise...
JDMan94: sure, it may not make real life scientific sense, but it makes dumb brain sense, if that makes sense
Wolfstrike_NL: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: Boss Juice
princess_intell: everyone pour one out for poor windows 10
CartoonTattoo: I think you're looking for like, a signet tile somewhere to use the sunstone on?
accountmadeforants: !searchfortreasure
LRRbot: You find: a Wandering Monster!
Thandres: you find... a pit trap
WearingCats_CwC: Roll for Vaan being competent. You have a -10
accountmadeforants: Welp
Didero: You can always give up and leave Kappa
Coaxtl: You need to roll an 18, I guess, or better
BoatyMcBoatfaceJr: zooomy
RayFK: You know what makes it even faster, Quad Speed
Gaz_L: oh yeah, you're looking for a tile to use your thingy on, aren't you?
JadenMina: Is there a specific NPC we need to talk to?
LadyLockwood92: "Sorry I startled you. I was in that closet."
goatprince: harass guard?
RomanGoro: Quad Speed is the low hanging fruit of FF comedy
Mr_Horrible: but no space jump? 0/10 would not play
Prop_PT: did you talk to the big lad by the stairs?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I remember the original FF12 being the only game where my knowledge of pronouncing obscure star names was useful
accountmadeforants: What if those big doors are the secret doors? :p
Saphling: go towards stairs?
GDwarble: Now, if this was a *true* Vagrant Story sequel it would have a bare-chested vampire man with intense sexual tension with Balthier.
Didero: Stealth tutorial!
TXC2: stealth check time!
Didero: 'yoohoo, mister guard sir!'
plummeting_sloth: okay, try calling the guard again, but less saucily
northos: hello and welcome to this minigame you'll do once and never again
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: “hellooooo~”
Spacecarl: like how does that work if YOU were the one calling for him
GDwarble: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou It's also useful in Devil Survivor 2, mostly because the big dipper is trying to destroy the world
AugmentingPath: he has a lot of competition for dumbest guard, actually
odium_chlorite: peripheral vision, 0
princess_intell: why does windows 10 need to update so much ughhhhh
LordManiMani: this part of the game reminds me of the beginning of FIX in that a bunch of separate plots collide in an amusing fashion, except this took 3 hours to get here because they needed to do the tutorials
Gaz_L: Rabanastre recruiting guards from the same pool as Outer Heaven
CartoonTattoo: @northos I think you might do it three or so times IIRC?
Fr0Dough: Look stupid people need jobs too
AugmentingPath: oh hey look more guards
EC_as_That: STEALTH!
Coaxtl: But….but you were the one who called him??
Mr_Horrible: maybe that Seeq(?) is just a really engaging conversationalist
jacqui_lantern234: "the guards just stupid!" big same
jamesk902: In fairness, those helmets probably restrict vision.
KevinTheShark: He's not paid enough to care about things like...line of sight

accountmadeforants: Press X to Jasignet
Wolfstrike_NL: He also said: "Do you see this bunny on y lap?"
KartoffelKaiser: Look these guards are wearing full metal armor in the desert, they all have heat stroke
TXC2: can you let it all out?
CartoonTattoo: You can use it to draw guards out of your path.
ContingentCat: but can you let it all out?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: to be fair I spent a decent chunk of time being, essentially, an MGS NPCS guard working at PAX, and I’d probably follow someone being like “helloooo this is obviously a trap” purely to liven up my day.
SmashTCG: press x to JAAAAAYYSOOON
Gaz_L: Penelo can have one too now
princess_intell: wait don't you have to pay 2 for arcade signet? I don't see any lands
LordZarano: @KartoffelKaiser PrideLaugh

AdamYMHMI: @ContingentCat What are the things you can do without?
odium_chlorite: I forgot how bronze this game was
ContingentCat: @TXC2 katesLol just beat me
plummeting_sloth: thank good, if you didn't have a licence for it it would literally clamp down on your arm and cut it off
Didero: Just talk to the guards, worst they can say is 'No'
CartoonTattoo: Yes
TXC2: ContingentCat drift compatible
Diabore: i think they need better helmets, they cant see shit
goatprince: yes, they re this stupid.
plummeting_sloth: Vaan, this is a sneaking mission
LordManiMani: try telling them about Captain Basch. I hear Archadeans and Rabinasters LOVE that
BoatyMcBoatfaceJr: oldest trick in the book
AdamYMHMI: All you need now is a cardboard box and you'll be the ultimate stealth master.
princess_intell: have you tried arson
Didero: I bet there's loot behind those guards in the dead ends
LadyLockwood92: !advice
LRRbot: Dinosaurs remain.
KartoffelKaiser: Yup!
Gaz_L: i mean, you say that, but the guards in MGS aren't much smarter
Thandres: reverse sliding blocks :o
lifecharacter: "Should we go after him?" "No, there's a shouting ghost we need to look out for"
jacqui_lantern234: @princess_intell no, i tried ardaughter :p
plummeting_sloth: a sliding stupid guard puzzle
KartoffelKaiser: The bucket heads are in fact block heads
Andymonium: yeah the blocks are just dude-shaped
KevinTheShark: WhAt WaS tHaT NoiSe!?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: you thought it was a stealth section but it was secretly a block puzzle

RayFK: Turns out FFXII had a brand deal with Slip N Slide
Pinwiz11: I want to mod this to use Bugs Bunny for this: "Bon Voyageeee"
GhostValv: rude D:
malsareus: r00d but called for
TehAmelie: i don't remember, is the explanation where the guards in MGS are almost completely sensory deprived because they're rapidly dying from the gene therapy canon or was it just Last Days fo Fox-Hound?
KartoffelKaiser: bucket head PogChamp run is blessed
Brozard: Accomplished guitar virtuoso Buckethead you are not
GDwarble: I love how all the guards give up the chase after 10 steps
MurphEP: Unnecessary, Vaan
goatprince: gotta go.... fast
Spacecarl: this is much more looney tunes with double speed
TXC2: "it's bouquet head!"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: “hey buckethead” is a good way to get Magneto mad at you and I wouldn’t recommend it
RayFK: Nah you're fine
malsareus: are we trapped forever?
princess_intell: omg that's totally a "gotta go" run
Diabore: is it not the lion we were looking for?
JDMan94: the goozle
plummeting_sloth: sorry, that was crude. I'll try again. Hey pale cranium
KingJimmeh: At least its not a tower of hanoi puzzle. I've sworn that I drop any game that uses a hanoi puzzle as it winds me up
Kiytan: put that guard back where you found it or so help me
nyperold: I mean, maybe he looks a little pail, but that's no reason to point it out...
Greyah: Graham, what are you doing? No, stop. Put those guards back where you found them.
LadyLockwood92: I kinda love that they let you annoy them without like...apprehending you or trying to find out what you want.
Jondare: Heya folks! My phone ran out of battery shortly after the intro cinematic monday, have we finally found a protagonist that didn't immediatly die? xD
jacqui_lantern234: put the guards back where you found them young man! :p
SalmirAeon: "What was that noise?"
LordZarano: Shout! Shout! Move them all out!
GDwarble: @KingJimmeh Has anyone but Bioware used them since the year 2000 or so?
princess_intell: these voice lines sound great out of context, but terrible once you're in the game
Carlioo: so how are the jobs doing?
Ravynn: G just casually throwing up the Dark Order symbol
CartoonTattoo: @KingJimmeh A lot of like, escape-the-room visual novel type games have
TXC2: hello Jondare indeed we've kept this one alive for 3 whole hours
TehAmelie: hey, towers of Hanoi puzzles are generally easy to brute force
LordManiMani: watch out for Captain Steiner and the Knights of Pluto while you're in here
Didero: yo, that hidden way is LIT
odium_chlorite: Vaan, the signet was clipping into your pinky, are you ok?
Fr0Dough: I dont play FF, is this cloud?
vellebastet: ooooooh!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yes
TXC2: Fr0Dough no
AugmentingPath: @Fr0Dough more or less
UponMyOath: This music feels like a lot
razorswift subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 54 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, razorswift! (Today's storm count: 20)
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: (no)
vellebastet: lrrSHINE
princess_intell: wait are we wearing a crop top?
Jondare: TXC2 Marvelous, only what, a couple hundred more to go then?
Fr0Dough: I saw three answers my god
TehAmelie: this is Vaan, our audience proxy
malsareus: rub your face against some grates?
KartoffelKaiser: @princess_intell better, a *metal vest*
incslayer: is it the blinking cyan thing on the map?
Ravynn: Tiny metal vest
noSmokeFire: this guy's run cycle is giving my sonic the hedgehog vibes
KingJimmeh: @GDwarble I think I remember one in God of War, and there was an indie adventure game with it.
malsareus: the wee-est of vests
RayFK: I'm pretty invested in the style of the game
tyrsredritehand: A vestlet
jacqui_lantern234: not to be confused with a dessert city :p
atinyspacemarine: a delightful twink vest
princess_intell: that sounds painful
plummeting_sloth: that's not a tiny vest, that's a strap holster with aspirations
LordManiMani: kind of an oasis city, no?
BoatyMcBoatfaceJr: to protect the shoulders
Pinwiz11: A vestini
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: ah, a desert city, the perfect place to wear metal against bare skin.
princess_intell: why metal?
GDwarble: @Fr0Dough Heh, Vaan is very different from Cloud. Cloud is a dork who pretends to be emotionless and cool. Vaan is a dork who pretends to be street-smart and fun
vellebastet: 12 is really underrated
KartoffelKaiser: yeah it just resets the guard positions
jacqui_lantern234: @princess_intell why not? :p
Prop_PT: is it on the map?
princess_intell: because ow sharp and ow heat
LadyLockwood92: Thinking about it, it's kinda funny, the only character from 12 who's armour you can't get in 14 is Vaan's.
TheThromborax: Final Fantasy: Sonic
WearingCats_CwC: Zidane is my favourite cloud
UponMyOath: Any story stuff happened since end of last stream?
TheThromborax: You want to talk underrated Final Fantasies, where's my FF XIII stream?
BrowneePoints: I think 12 is both underrated, and has aged better than most FFs
Vanbael: wall sus
TXC2: UponMyOath not really
plummeting_sloth: I for one would try to gather all the guards in one place for a distracted mosh pit
TehAmelie: Vaan "is" pure audience surrogate isn't he
TheThromborax: Is it 12 years ago?
atinyspacemarine: I've been having fun watching so far, loved ffVII LP too
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: 12 is the only game my non-gaming sister played and enjoyed, so that should count for something
princess_intell: which FF has aged the worst?
Didero: Today's story is: We climbed some stairs
jacqui_lantern234: @WearingCats_CwC i like the Zidane thats really good at football :p
LordManiMani: @wearingcats_cwc that's a bit insulting to both Cloud and Zidane for different reasons
MrVirite: yey render distance
noSmokeFire: did any story stuff happen IN the last stream? I missed it
Akaiatana: Oh grate wall!
plummeting_sloth: did... did he activate that with his forehead
TheThromborax: @princess_intell 1, probably
BrowneePoints: but really, 12 was controversal cuz of the mechanical changes, but has aged REALLY well
UponMyOath: Those could have been story relevant stairs!
KartoffelKaiser: @TehAmelie yeah, he has some story relevance but he's primarily Ishmael from Moby Dick
CartoonTattoo: @princess_intell Plot/story-ways or gameplay ways?
UponMyOath: But thanks, heh
BrowneePoints: granted this is the HD Remake
lifecharacter: We cycled through a few protagonists last time
TehAmelie: good comparison
Diabore: at least 1 story happened last streaam
p_johnston: There was a war? A prince and princess died?
princess_intell: @cartoontattoo either
p_johnston: About 20 proper nouns
malsareus: well on the plus side no trail for the guards to follow
AdamYMHMI: @LadyLockwood92 tbf, Fran is a character in 14 as well
TheDefiledPrince: 12 aged surprisingly well,, the visuals are also pretty okay too
odium_chlorite: Wall is sus
RyubosJ: i never hear people talk 12 down, so i wouldn't call it underrated. just overshaddowed by 10 and 13
p_johnston: In the space of 1 minute.
TheThromborax: that's not a wall, that's a sconce
SpacePotato01: it looks like two giant pieces of speculaas
noSmokeFire: *someone who's only seen doors* this wall is giving me big door vibes
jacqui_lantern234: come on, graham, dont be a DOORk
Gaz_L: @p_johnston a prince died. the princess we were told died off-screen
UponMyOath: @ryubosj people were hella down on it in the day
HiimDant: a door? that's crazy talk. it's clearly two doors Kappa
plummeting_sloth: "This floor looks suspicious" IT'S A LAKE VAAN
TheThirdTail: That's silly. Walls can't be doors.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: if you really squint it kind of looks like…two really tall tombstones!
Didero: Instead of pushing it, let's just ponder it instead
TehAmelie: you're a doorkey!
Cybermtg: Hello LRR. I just wanna thank you for everything, you really have made my time playing MTG a lot better! its always fun seeing your sketches. I appreciate all your time dedicated to the community
BrowneePoints: @RyubosJ 12 was much maligned on release. Or at the very least it was constantly badmouthed
beowuuf: which skill tree do we need to increase in order torecognise doors?
RyubosJ: huh, interesting.
nyperold: Transdoormers, transform and open out!
BrowneePoints: but, after the 13-1 through 13-3 debacle people warmed up on 12 considerably
Valandriel1: It looks like two movable walls, held together y a wooden frame and some sort of hinges...
JDMan94: it's time... FOR THEM
beowuuf: uuuh
MurphEP: oh yeah
BigDaddyBland87: uhhh
GhostValv: ???
MurphEP: Let's go
fiftymcnasty: He really likes treasukre
ContingentCat: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! Have you ever been on a horse before?
RayFK: Holy shit
micalovits: Now is not the time
malsareus: Vaan not the time
Wolfstrike_NL: Double speed taking it's toll
UponMyOath: Oh they fuckin
jacqui_lantern234: GRAHAM
lifecharacter: Lift with the knees
LordManiMani: ladies and gentlemen... please welcome to the main stage
jamesk902: I ge tis alot of gold Vaan but calm down.
KingJimmeh: Its all that Double timing
ElektroTal: i was in another window and suddenly weird breathing?
CartoonTattoo: @princess_intell Gameplay-ways, probably #1. Plot-ways... people tend to dislike 8 for being too serious and kinda confusing, dislike 9 for being too light-hearted, and dislike 4's nintendo-wii sequal for making a lot of the first one's plot irrelevant
Didero: Don't enjoy the treasure THAT much
LadyLockwood92: Why...why does he sound lie that...
p_johnston: 12 is a fun game. It just has some story moments that are...Well lets say pure nonsense.
plummeting_sloth: look, I know this was your first private moment
RyubosJ: I don't like 12 that much anyway, but that's mostly cause the gambit system feels like anti-gameplay
BrowneePoints: @CartoonTattoo 9 IS TOO LIGHTHEARTED? what!?
RyubosJ: but it's not a bad game
JDMan94: @p_johnston that's every FF
MurphEP: Is that what my brain looks like?
LordManiMani: *cheering* *hooting and hollaring*
AugmentingPath: oh good, a protagonist
Mordin_Solus_Sings: God I love Balthier
northos: god I love Gideon Emery's voice
odium_chlorite: its him
Invitare: oh, another main character?
Prop_PT: its the main character!
incslayer: that is a camera angle
JDMan94: our real main character
odium_chlorite: it's her
Genie_M: yay
noSmokeFire: oh no, a THEATER kid
Fr0Dough: Oh! Vaan is what you get if cloud and the guy from kingdom hearts
RayFK: Oh No They're Hot.
Carlioo: "I'm here to take back the role of main character"
UncannyJimjams: Hello there, Ewan McGregor
Saphling: NOW. we have a main character
BigDaddyBland87: Even he knows he's the main character
ArrestedHouse: our main character
LadyLockwood92: I was gonna say, he sounds familiar.
TheDefiledPrince: There he be! cirHappy
Andymonium: Them™
GDwarble: Hah, Balthier sure does share a voice actor with Urianger from 14
keroan0: Logic is solid
UponMyOath: Oh no
MurphEP: You may have found it kid, but we're taller
Spacecarl: Vaan you can have like anything else in here
ContingentCat: just ask the british museum
BrowneePoints: everyone in 12 is pretty hot
roastbeefsandwitch: Tall bunny lady there
thirsty_kitteh: The gaze on Fran's entrance though >_>
UponMyOath: I wasn’t ready
plummeting_sloth: please Vaan, they clearly need money to help that lady buy pants
goatprince: I remember being 16 and thinking balthier was hot. I got better
BusTed: Batman'd out
TXC2: "I'll steal what you've rightfuly kidnapped"
on_and_awful: Biblically accurate statue
odium_chlorite: Theatre kid detected. Beginning obliteration protocol.
princess_intell: would it be reasonable to play FF games just because to look at guys
incslayer: Magicite? i have played Final Fantasy VII thats the remains of an Esper
thirsty_kitteh: goatprince: at 32 I have still not grown out of that >_>
CartoonTattoo: @goatprince I didn't think he was hot when I was 16 and now I do, so... different strokes
RayFK: Balthier is hot.
JDMan94: the heck you talking about, he still is
RayFK: Fran is hot.
ElektroTal: i'm 42 and he's still hot
RayFK: Most of the game is hot.
UponMyOath: @goatprince bad face, good voice, easy mistake to make
Prop_PT: yeah he can still get it
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Didn’t the writers actually say Balthier and Fran are the main characters it was just a better framing device to use Vaan’s POV?
WearingCats_CwC: I remember being 13 and thinking Fran was hot. Not much has changed
p_johnston: I mean I'm like 80% straight and I think balthier is hot.
p_johnston: I also think Fran is hot.
RyubosJ: well he doesn't have much competition in the game on hotness
BrowneePoints: Also yea Graham, Balthier's Voice Actor also voiced Urianger in the base game of FF14 before the big VO change
odium_chlorite: the light hit Vann in such a way he looks like he has a Pringles moustache
malsareus: the game is in a dessert, everything is hot
northos: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou I would argue Ashe is the MC, at least later in the game
Thandres: the game plays in a desert, of course everyone is hot
Brozard: AH! That's where I recognize his voice - Devrim Kay
TheDefiledPrince: Balthier is still hot I dunno what to tell ya
UncannyJimjams: 33 here, just met him and I would take him to dinner over it
SpacePotato01: I'm 42 and I had to google who Balthier is.
BrowneePoints: Yep! Gideon Emery
RyubosJ: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou wasn't it Ashe who was meant to be the main character?
JaymicUnyielding: ooohhhhhh THIS is the game with the rabbit lady
KartoffelKaiser: this game takes place primarily in a desert everyone is hot pls give them some water
JDMan94: Every character is basically the main character in this game
RayFK: Oh wow that IS Devrim
vellebastet: [bisexual panic]
Brozard: and Toland
malsareus: a battlefight
LordManiMani: @browneepoints he got lost in the Shakespeare dimension
Spacecarl: This party SUCKS
gualdhar: Fran made me realize I like tall, strong women
atinyspacemarine: this game really decided to pander to the bi audience, I'm here for it
thirsty_kitteh: Characters I would date in this game: none. Characters I would kiss on a fling: YES
Didero: suddenly fighting?
TXC2: pre-rendered? that's how people die!
CartoonTattoo: I'm gonna say it though: Basch is *also* hot, in a scruffy way
odium_chlorite: "I can see the wrinkles on my hands! I can see my age"
plummeting_sloth: "I have terrible new gentlemen... we're on film"
princess_intell: oh no FF is full of hot guys
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: wait is that Devrim??
BrowneePoints: Gideon Emery
Brozard: It is, I checked
KevinTheShark: Pre-rendered!? DEAR GOD!
BigDaddyBland87: Suddenly a battle
TheDefiledPrince: @KartoffelKaiser We're all gonna need water
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh my GOD
RayFK: Brozard that's sick
JAR_of_stuff: WAIT! DONT GO ANY FURTHER, it's Pre-rendered over there, it's dangerous!
JDMan94: it's also Biggs in 7 Remake Graham
ElektroTal: also, Balthier is the best Indian character in games, as per my headcanon and his uppercrust bombay accent
Gaz_L: and apparently Fergus from the newer Wolfensteins?
UncannyJimjams: @rayfk oh no you're right! Where's his tea and long arm rifle?
princess_intell: i need to play these games
UponMyOath: Oh, that checks out, yeh
TheDefiledPrince: Yep, tghat's Devrim's voice actor
Mordin_Solus_Sings: Gideon Emery voice is always appreciated.
richard_ermen: Ah, the main character of FF12 has arrived.
Coaxtl: You ran through a door and straight into a cutscene!
Brozard: LUL
Shadowsoflife: @princess_intell hot people* :p
keroan0: Well this party has been officially pooped
DarkAbyssKeeper: I remember like none of this game.
Didero: Penelo is voiced by the same person as Padme Amidala in the Clone Wars show, and that keeps throwing me off too
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: that explains a LOT of confusion I had the first time I met Devrim!!
GapFiller: been watching in bits as when and its been a v long time since playing this game mysln; have we covered Reks and Vaans relationship yet
GapFiller: ingame obv (presumably there was chat chatter during the prologue on Monday)
Ravynn: Also voiced Biggs in 7Remake
Carlioo: the greatest fantasy bike ever made
UponMyOath: @elektrotal love it, good headcanon
LadyLockwood92: Yeah, 14's weird bikes.
RayFK: Don't worry UncannyJimjams, they're coming
northos: wow, Fran got all the lore notes in Bozja already? :p
TheThromborax: this looks a lot better here than it did on my switch
Saphling: balthier's VA also does Biggs in the Ffvii remake
princess_intell: I bet I DO balthier
Brozard: And apparently he voiced Master Ives in Destiny 1? I can barely hear his voice in my head, I always let Rahool disappoint me.
Diabore: "mine now"
RayFK: "Yeet"
ElektroTal: also, Balthier is completely farking broken in the final fantasy tactics remake
richard_ermen: I don't know Graham, Fran definitely is the wookie in this situation, considering how she acts
BrowneePoints: yea Gideon voices Biggs in the FF7 Remake Graham
UponMyOath: Did Balthier just kidnap a boy?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: alright now I have to look up the FF12 voice cast
BrowneePoints: so He's...3 different FF characters?
Pinwiz11: That's a dislocated shoulder right there
KevinTheShark: Poor choice of words
UponMyOath: Could everyone *please* stop grunting
jacqui_lantern234: hi "slipping" nice to meet you!!!!!!
JAR_of_stuff: what accent is bunny lady supposed to have....?
KartoffelKaiser: @UponMyOath yeah basically
Brozard: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou The cast is actually legit great
UntilTheEndOfTimeVeronica: Hey Graham, how's life treating you?
munocard: Balthier's VA is also in FFXIV as A Realm Reborn Urianger, if I remember right.
TheMightyTaylor: *Tosses Vaan off the edge* And there goes our 3rd main character
Thandres: the grunting will continue until morale improves
KartoffelKaiser: @JAR_of_stuff Icelandic IIRC?
EC_as_That: han solo and chewbacca has now join the party
Valandriel1: Why did he not put the stone away... Sometimes I don't understand yideo game characters logic...
BrowneePoints: Icelandic
odium_chlorite: Guy who has only watched Star Wars: Getting some real stars wars vibes from this
brat_the_wurst: im watching on a second monitor and the grunting sure is something
AugmentingPath: @BrowneePoints Also, additional voices in Kingdom Hearts 3, if that counts
LadyLockwood92: In fairness, Gideon Emery doesn't play Urianger anymore, not since Heavensward.
vellebastet: There is soooo much grunting in this entire game
RyubosJ: @UponMyOath better than Fran talking. her voice is throwing me off big time
Didero: Fran has a weird accent
Mordin_Solus_Sings: God damnit Balthier, always with a quip ;)
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh god he’s even doing the Devrim voice!
BrowneePoints: Viera are supposed to be Icelandic
Metric_Furlong: Sewer level!
Genie_M: I remember reading an interview with Fran's voice actor, on how they found this accent for her
CartoonTattoo: It's definitely got the Nordic bite to it.
jacqui_lantern234: sewer?! i hardly know her!!!
noSmokeFire: "the ifrit's playing with fire" yeah. that's, like, their old deal
TehAmelie: in hindsight, this game was probably double damned by being extremely far removed from the traditional rpgs the fans expected and also the internet getting into telling everyone why everything sucked
JAR_of_stuff: @JAR_of_stuff very bjorkish, yes...
LadyLockwood92: Yeah, Viera generally have Scandinavian accents.
Mordin_Solus_Sings: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Gideon Emery doesn't have a ton of range, he's basically always the same smug voice and it's great
munocard: It's Final Fantasy David Bowie
warboss5: Skyrats? Piskys?!?
BrowneePoints: Specifically, as of FF14, Viera are Icelandic
p_johnston: Balthier you are also explicitly a thief!
ElektroTal: So it's a desi bounty hunter and his wookee pal Bjork
atinyspacemarine: love this for us
cuttlefishman: How does he have moral high ground to call him out to be a thief when he is a sky pirate?
lostluckDev: ROFL Skyrates. blindsided me there.
DarkAbyssKeeper: Skyracy is a Noble Art, don't you disparage it.
Tehbeard: Posh british accent.... so villain?
Greendrag13: Heck, now *I* want to pick this back up...
YFiddler subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 20 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, YFiddler! (Today's storm count: 21)
JDMan94: we have obtained both mom and dad
Didero: Technically, Vaan joined Balthier's party
Snowcookies: Congrats Vaan, you're a sky pirate now!
TheThromborax: Paaaarty!
goatprince: [knife time voice] j o b t I m e
Genie_M: job job time!
Spacecarl: okay even that music sting was very star wars
cuttlefishman: Are these the MCs?
northos: @Tehbeard hold that thought for uh...about 30 hours :p
Diabore: now these 2 incredibly accomplished sky pirates will be... assigned jobs by the child
JAR_of_stuff: wait, was Iceland a colony?! Did the US education fail me again?
warboss5: Greetings Graham, I see the beard is coming in nicely :)
Gaz_L: if Balthier's in charge how come Vaan's still leading the way?
Prop_PT: time to Job 'em up?
noSmokeFire: characters joining the party by force is an underrated trope
GapFiller: ohhh story of this game G
Shadowsoflife: o/
CartoonTattoo: You probably need to assign them license boards, also.
vellebastet: yeeees
GapFiller: esp re Vaans role
Jondare: God dang, Balthiers voice is just DELICIOUS 😍 I don't swing that way, but I'd be lying if it wasn't making my knees a bit soft
TheThromborax: woah, you're not save scumming. Gutsy!
LordManiMani: LFG
noSmokeFire: jambits?!
JDMan94: it's also JOB time
thirsty_kitteh: cuttlefishman: everyon is the MC until proven otherwise
Gaz_L: yay, my favourite X-Man
TehAmelie: it's like when the Inquisitor joins the Iron Bull's party am i right
EC_as_That: Joining also imply that you had a choice
UncannyJimjams: Hive! Bring a sword!
BlindProphet32: Don't forget to bank those motes
TXC2: it's gambit time mon cher
KartoffelKaiser: @cuttlefishman sort of? We're starting to accumulate new party members and all of them are more important than Vaan
DarkAbyssKeeper: Always Cure Enemies.
vellebastet: seabatClap
ElektroTal: Gambits, for when you want to play a thousand hour game without playing
richard_ermen: I mean this is the big criticism of FF12, the fact that the Vaan character was added as the higher-ups meddling and the original plan had Balthier as the main char
GhostValv: time for gamba :)
atinyspacemarine: do we get GOTO statements?
Foxmar320: Gambit? Better bring a sword
HiimDant: you can program your allies? interesting
odium_chlorite: Balthier has achieved self-awareness.
Carlioo: I wish I could throw a party from a menu
TheDefiledPrince: Yo gambit is lookin' weird today
timetwister7: oh cool, this is the updated version where you can store 3 gambit sets
thirsty_kitteh: elektrotal: Sir, we call that "engineering" :p
GDwarble: @richard_ermen Honestly, Vaan isn't bad. I remembered him as *way* worse than he actually is.
Mordin_Solus_Sings: @richard_ermen There were like 3 different main characters intended before Vaan.
Ranakel: It's easy to set up a daily routine for your self-care: just learn it from two criminals in a very large sewer
richard_ermen: Remember, if its Gambit time, to throw a number of poker cards as well
GDwarble: He's more superfluous than bad
KartoffelKaiser: aaannd even Balthier isn't *really* the main character
TheMightyTaylor: Gambit are just combat oriented If-Then statements
warboss5: 70% seems high
Rayn3Cl0ud: Gambit and Devrim Kay? This Destiny 2 looks way different
munocard: Welcome to programming, but you have to unlock statements.
jamesk902: Now you're thinking with gambits!
ElektroTal: ff12 was the most 'programmed' game ever until 13 came out and turned the game into a sports coach simulator
DarkAbyssKeeper: Oh right. This game had the programming AI. Mine got weirdly intense.
jacqui_lantern234: love me a good Jambit
AdamYMHMI: "Now let's talk about arrays, Vaan."
thirsty_kitteh: munocard: else statements are paid DLC
Prop_PT: could you always preset 3 gambit boards or is that new?
Kiytan: yes imagine just using a potion whenever...*stares at kingdom hearts characters*
KevinTheShark: Ahh don't you just love logic gates
CartoonTattoo: It's kind of a 4-person ensemble cast, but there's 6 party members, sooooo.
TheDefiledPrince: @munocard So programming? :V
richard_ermen: @richard_ermen @GDwarble True, he's no....FF10 main idiot.
odium_chlorite: wait, you need to buy your else ifs?
Coaxtl: I know this will likely change, but I don’t like any of the characters so far
Two_Hats: oh, so sort of like DA:O
Manae: You need a license to know how to throw a potion at someone!
atinyspacemarine: is there a rust crate for ff12 yet?
Brozard: Motes go in the bank, Vaan!
LordManiMani: multiple pages of gambits PokCroagunk
GDwarble: @richard_ermen I also don't mind Tidus overmuch. Squall, now...
RyubosJ: @Manae honestly, that sounds sensible
richard_ermen: @Mordin_Solus_Sings Oh, who else?
ContingentCat: No protecc only attacc
RayFK: IE: Never have your attack top of Gambit
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I think a major hindrance to this game’s system was the idea you had to unlock parts of the basic usability of it.
LordZarano: When do we get to matrix transformations?
Mordin_Solus_Sings: @richard_ermen Basch was definitely intended for awhile, and I believe also Ashe
GDwarble: Yeah, they should've started you with a starter set of useful gambits that's a bit more robust than what you did get
RayFK: My mood is "Violence"
KenKopin: Gambits for every occasion!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: having to “buy” gambits to do the basic actions of the game is a weird choice they sure did nake
GDwarble: And also given the main character something to do while the gambits are doing their thing
richard_ermen: @richard_ermen @GDwarble Ehhh.....I played FF8 during the teens and it was fine. I could certainly work with him but then I was also more of a little emo shithead xD
RyubosJ: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou at least they are only 50 to 100 gill each
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: that’s where the party is AT
munocard: Gambazon Prime
CartoonTattoo: You should also check their license boards I'd imagine!
KartoffelKaiser: Ashe is still the main character, she just has to endure the same nonsense as Yuna did in 10 with other characters insisting that the game is actually about them
goatprince: hey vaan, why is your splash image.... so horny
WearingCats_CwC: Squall doesn't have enough of a personality to be offensive
TehAmelie: i would prefer to micromanage my party over using gambits, but then i never got very far in this game, so maybe it's for the better
noSmokeFire: I love that they're higher level than Vaugn
richard_ermen: @Mordin_Solus_Sings I mean, both are more involved with the story as presented in the opening cutscene than Vaan at least xD
odium_chlorite: time to change characters so we can play as the actual protagonist
RayFK: Head canon that Poisona is pronounced with a thick NJ accent and sounds like a character yelling Persona.
RayFK: Enjoy
AdamYMHMI: Ain't no party like a party menu because a party menu... allows you to manage your characters and gambits...
TheDefiledPrince: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Some of the more obscure ones cost 300
vellebastet: @rayfk LMFAO
RyubosJ: @goatprince well he *is* 17 at this point
Pazy160: I really love the gambit system but it really could have used some basic default sets for the people who didnt want to manage a small programming system.
Prop_PT: Paisano
KartoffelKaiser: @RayFK i will not, thanks i hate it
munocard: Does that mean Gambit is pronounced "Gabagool"?
malsareus: punch first, drinks later
LordManiMani: I'm going to say something controversial: slowly unlocking gambits as you went in the old release helped teach the system better than making them all available at once.
Derthon: cohhBongos Evening all
TXC2: hello Derthon welcome
prince_infidel: Why's Vaan's pic a thirst trap?
TheMightyTaylor: all attacc
Prop_PT: Balthier currently never healing
vellebastet: evening
KartoffelKaiser: @WearingCats_CwC ...whatever
Genie_M: there are lots of gambits locked
Mordin_Solus_Sings: @Pazy160 Yeah, Dragon Age Origins did that and was a nice evolution. A pity they kinda abandoned it.
KevinTheShark: Well, good thing for Fran that 2023 is year of the rabbit.
Genie_M: and be bought
Carlioo: do you have a license for that cure
DrMagnify subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 52 months!
DrMagnify: woo some number of years
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, DrMagnify! (Today's storm count: 22)
warboss5: As a veteran D&D player, I feel like healing is the thing you do only after an ally is facedown in the dirt. Healing a party member that's still conscious is a waste of action economy.
MrVirite: healing if not in battle
TheThirdTail: Vaan may be a thief, but he would never dabble in unlicensed medicine
CartoonTattoo: First Aid only works on critical HP allies I think?
GTea30: He heals outside of combat, you can still manually heal
Didero: That's literally what the tutorial just told you
jacqui_lantern234: A B C - Balthier Never Heals :p
MrVirite: Vaan's 2nd was still disabled\1
raulghoulia: vaan gambit off
atinyspacemarine: kinda wanna play screeps now
TheDefiledPrince: @CartoonTattoo Yep!
RyubosJ: @TheThirdTail he's a thief, not a criminal
warboss5: I feel like "soldiers" should be wearing WAY more armor than that
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Saladin is also in here, and Nolan North, but Nolan North is the free square on the videogame VA bungo card.
Snowcookies: the way they pronounce fete sure is
Genie_M: did you choose jobs for the party?
KartoffelKaiser: anyway, rad foreshadowing note: Balthier is referring to these characters as "insurgents". Other characters use other terms.
ContingentCat: steel isn't very nutritious that's not a good dinner
BrowneePoints: I soiled my cuffs too, but that was after a night of Hard Liquor and Taco Bell
malsareus: my my, such airs
Didero: Can you level these people up too?
MacSquizzy: Gambits were a cool idea but "get better at giving your party instructions" is a weird form of progression
nyperold: You mean like, prison garb?
Genie_M: licenses
SpacePotato01: Wait, if that's the city's sewer, where is all the poop? Does everyone in the city just hold it in forever?
JDMan94: also, you can give them jobs
KingOfDoma: Morning, Graham! How goes the character programming?
RyubosJ: @KartoffelKaiser huh, nice
TehAmelie: iron is good for you, carbon, maybe not so much
jacqui_lantern234: ive known Balthier for, like, 10 minutes and his voice already bothers me
odium_chlorite: Balthier is 25!?
goatprince: this is a great game to learn the difference between 'greater than' and 'less than'
GDwarble: @SpacePotato01 It's more of a storm sewer-slash-aqueduct
malsareus: do either of them know how to drive their own abilities?
Greyah: It's really weird to hear that voice not say things like "thou" and "couldst"
Carlioo: mapurn
vellebastet: 🤣🤣🤣
Saphling: soooo much water for a desert city
SpacePotato01: @SpacePotato01 ahh. Fair.
lannersong: Vaan is feeling shy
GDwarble: @jacqui_lantern234 Aw, I like Gideon Emery's performance
Mordin_Solus_Sings: Did you not give Vaan an auto-target?
thirsty_kitteh: vaan is only targetting when the party leader is targetting
SpleenLord: You are not targeting
atinyspacemarine: need a mod for gambits to enable finite state machines
Gaz_L: he doesn't have a target?
Didero: Maybe because Vaan didn't have a target?
ElektroTal: what if the FFT Calculator was the entire game engine
KartoffelKaiser: Vaan's gambits aren't compiling NotLikeThis
thirsty_kitteh: so will never acquire a trget
UponMyOath: Honestly "Fran is the only one doing anything" seems like it would be par for the course with this group
TehAmelie: oh no don't think about the sewers i'm going to picture us wading in black water from now on
richard_ermen: lol
jacqui_lantern234: @GDwarble im sure theyre a talented actor... just not with this character
Diabore: party leaders target, but im the party leader
mwlsn: missing ; at end of gambit
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: y’know so far Devrim doesn’t sound that different. He’s still got the gentleman rogue thing going on. All he’s missing is a big useless Exotic.
Greyah: Have you tried turning the gambits off and on again?
Mordin_Solus_Sings: So now if an enemy attacks Fran, Vaan and Balthier will just stand there and watch it happen
TXC2: my gambits, they're so sick
Pinwiz11: It's the same programming ethos as Twitter
malsareus: Man, I love party members with custom action logic
atinyspacemarine: compiler erreor in your favor, collect $200
Genie_M: what licenses will Balthier and Fran have?
garion99: my 3yr old just asked is this was desertbus
GTea30: I do lowest HP, to manage Adds when applicable
Akaiatana: Are we not calling them Grahambits?
malsareus: just punch mans
MisterZimbu: Vaan's gonna sit there like a Vaan
Didero: Vaan's gonna sit there like an idiot regardless, because of his personality Kappa
MacSquizzy: @Akaiatana we are now
malsareus: they're unemployed
JDMan94: yeah, you gotta assign jobs to everyone
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @akaiatana we are now
Gaz_L: i still like the leader target thing, gives you control of who you fight?
Diabore: @LoadingReadyRun 2 very accomplished sky pirates... getting jobs from the kid
Prop_PT: get a job Balthier
GhostValv: Vaan noted job creator :)
RyubosJ: doesn't "party leader target" work if you only attack ones? I think Vaan will carry on attacking, you just need to attack first
Ranakel: Graham, to the rest of the LRR crew: "I should give you jobs"
Genie_M: and Libra!
jamesk902: Na Na, why don't you get a job?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: “What jobs do they have” they’re pirates Graham they don’t have jobs
p_johnston: Isn't the lower half stat boosts?
jacqui_lantern234: sure, they have jobs, but do they have... JOB JOBS?!?! :p
BigDaddyBland87: I guess they're just freelancing right now
plummeting_sloth: man, I don't get these new versions of Chess
TheDefiledPrince: Get that man a GUN cirSlain
odium_chlorite: I wonder if Graham would be crazy enough to fight a certain superboss in this playthrough
thirsty_kitteh: an extra gambit would allow for better targetting rules, such as "targetting Vaan" and then "lowest HP"
CartoonTattoo: Gotta help prepare their references and resumes, need a lot of qualifications for sky piracy
GTea30: You can set multiple "attack" commands, and the ones higher up will take priority, making "party leader's target" override any other attack command, for instance!
KenKopin: Mid-combat: Are you really doing enough around here?
malsareus: you can look but do you see?
TehAmelie: huh, i thought we were all into the illusion of choice
accountmadeforants: Game...! Spoilers! MiniK
Shadowsoflife: Like how some of the slots are like you learned how to hear hats
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Unless their job is “privateer”
Prop_PT: Archer
Didero: "Gain MP when taking damage" seems like i'td comebine well with a 'Firs Aid' skill
CartoonTattoo: Time Battlemage is crossbow
Prop_PT: Time is Crossbow
SpleenLord: Time wizard!
JDMan94: Fran is actually bad eith bows
Carlioo: isn't fran a better machinist than balthier?
JDMan94: and balthier is actually bad with guns
TehAmelie: crossbows are for casuals am i right
RyubosJ: bows are just bad
jacqui_lantern234: Archer?! i hardly know her!!! :p
Diabore: fran is like vaan, but worse
goatprince: the island squares are connected through limit break attacks [limited] and esper squares [limited]
JDMan94: they have the lowest animations for those weapons
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: to be fair I’ve never seen Devrim hit anything either.
JDMan94: slowest
rocketjohn: !advice
LRRbot: Wedges are the way to go.
Ranakel: The problem is that they have fancy animations, so they're a tiny bit slower.
KartoffelKaiser: Fran and Balthier have unique animations for Bows and Guns respectivly that are something like a single frame longer
niccus: i don't know if i want to hear about anyone's zodiac job
Ranakel: But it's fine, it's cool, follow your heart
KartoffelKaiser: It's basically irrelevant.
Firewhiskers: Isn't Fran a good ninja?
MisterZimbu: you'll never set WR at this rate
thirsty_kitteh: but, and here me our chat, Fran is a Viera. And therefore good to have. *nods*
warboss5: Awww, the little Final Fantasy Tactics style portrait on the wheel gives me the good nostalgia juice
Pazy160: Unique animations sounds like a reason to make them that class.
Greyah: Bun with gun?
TheMightyTaylor: Frans stats are about the opposite of Vaans. She's better off debuffing I think
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: NLB takes a while to reload cut him some slack
TehAmelie: you can switch jobs, right?
Firewhiskers: @TehAmelie Nope
northos: attack power is based on weapon, not base stats
northos: (iirc)
Didero: What's the difference between strength and attack power?
goatprince: attack power is just weapon power
richard_ermen: Building characters to ones own liking and less to their strengths can be fun
Genie_M: just use whatever - we won't 100% so we're fine with any
JDMan94: yeah, attack power is just weapon
PaintingWithFariss: @TehAmelie Later on yes
accountmadeforants: Oh, that is kinda funny. I imagine they gave them a bit of extra flourish with those weapons since they're "supposed" to be good with them?
KartoffelKaiser: Frankly, the base stat differences between each character barely matter. You can just do whatever with each of them and you'll do fine
UncannyJimjams: job job!
Firewhiskers: I stand corrected.
Genie_M: don't minmax
RyubosJ: you can switch after about 6 ish hours
PaintingWithFariss: Also each character can pick a second job later too, and use both at once
Gaz_L: just do what is coolest, imo
TheDefiledPrince: Fran is good at black magic as well if I recall
goatprince: gotta play Job Job to find out what to pick
atinyspacemarine: onion!
Tikosh_: the internet says...: Think of Fran as your sturdy Swiss knife that's not very sharp or dull, but just right. Fran doesn't excel very much at any other area in the license/job boards, but she isn't that bad at these areas, either.
KartoffelKaiser: Anyway Balthier's weapon has low attack power because it's a gun and guns ignore defense
MrVirite: onion arrows, make the mooks cry
Prop_PT: I mean you can always change right?
GDwarble: Since I assume we're not going after the super boss builds probably don't matter
gualdhar: I find Balthier is a Chad With Bows, Man
Diabore: we can literally switch jobs now with montblanc
Didero: How do you know what's canonical?
EC_as_That: Wait, was Balthier shooting Onions?
TehAmelie: so Fran should be a red mage?
JDMan94: yeah, guns are neat.
CartoonTattoo: @Diabore We shan't be back to him for awhile
warboss5: Oh man, I love some of these names! "FOEBREAKER!"
Pinwiz11: I'm tempted to do a run and randomize everyone's jobs and stick with them
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: alright TIL Devrim also voices Toland so I’m gonna be chewing on that for a while, probably until these people learn how to wear hats.
malsareus: Implied by their starting gear
vellebastet: fair
plummeting_sloth: Guns also ignore your emotional needs, but also your defense
Didero: Ok that makes sense :p
LordZarano: It was a good few years for sky pirates in games. Between Crimson Skies, Skies of Arcadia, FFXII, and Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier
TXC2: seems legit
RyubosJ: swap them? Fran = gun, Balthier = bow?
Akaiatana: Yknow, I notice JRPG fans do the north american travel time conversion
BrowneePoints: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Gideon Emery gets around
Gaz_L: also, Balthier is charming and Machinist gets charm?
Diabore: @Diabore i meant more we have already interacted with the npc for it
TehAmelie: you can't hug with these arms ;_;
Saphling: onion arrows would do emotional damage....
DarkAbyssKeeper: Every one Guns forever, just roll through the game as team america.
goatprince: just do the classic 'everyone is white mages' challenge run
JaymicUnyielding: I've heard about Fran, but this is the first time I've seen her in game
GhostValv: guns will always forget your birthday
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Balthier just kinda looks like a flintlock gun kinda guy
BrowneePoints: Fran Kicks ass, questionable clothing choices aside
Snowcookies: black mages or bust
niccus: load up the ff5 fiesta picker web page and work off that
warboss5: Am I weird for liking this game more because of the jobs system?
Diabore: love some gambit slots
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: If we’re going to play FF dress-up we should accessorize the weapons to match
TXC2: warboss5 no
Seth_Erickson: Now this is the riveting Final Fantasy gameplay I'm glad to have come in to the stream at
RyubosJ: @warboss5 no, job system is cool
Gaz_L: heh, the Archer board looks like a bow
raulghoulia: @warboss5 job system games are boss
JDMan94: the Job System made this game so much better
Didero: What happens to the LP if you switch their jobs?
LordManiMani: @niccus ???
Diabore: honestly though, any job is fine if youre not aiming for the ultimate min maxxing
KartoffelKaiser: @warboss5 Nah, it makes it a lot easier to make characters distinct from each other, which makes the game more interesting
BusTed: no takesies backsies?
TheDefiledPrince: @BrowneePoints She needs some pants and a coat cirSlain
warboss5: Makes me want to play through Final Fantasy Tactics again
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: man imagine needing a license to have a gun
Thandres: i think it tells you that it refunds all spent LP
RyubosJ: @Didero you keep it. so if you had spent 100 LP, you get 100 back
LordManiMani: don't you... not want to
BusTed: Hey weird, it zeroes out your MP. 🤔
Diabore: @BusTed surprisingly there are takesies backsies
BrowneePoints: also the starting Viera Racial Gear is just Fran's Outfit...I think
niccus: you know, four job fiesta
Didero: @Didero So it's a full respec? Nice
BrowneePoints: in ff14
Firewhiskers: @Seth_Erickson This game is actually a fascinating experiment in how to handle random encounters between major boss battles!
RyubosJ: @BrowneePoints for 14? yes
p_johnston: I do like how they're ok with actively robbing the Empire but using a weapon without a license that's the line.
FuzzyFozzy: If they don't cast magic the magicite is pretty good. Gives high magic defense
Seth_Erickson: @Seth_Erickson seems like it yeah I just have no frame of reference for any of the ff games
KartoffelKaiser: The original license board system was good to ensure that whatever random equipment you got as a reward for sidequesting could be used by *someone*, but the way Zodiac Age does the job boards accomplishes the same task without the OG system's problems
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: DMCA run amok
Diabore: and now the game can play itself
atinyspacemarine: "party leader's target" seems more useful for the rest of the team
Diabore: well, fight for itself at least
LadyLockwood92: @BrowneePoints For Female Viera at least. They added the bunny bois when Endwalker came out.
raulghoulia: No! only menu
niccus: what's a "game"
Firewhiskers: @Diabore FFXII Survivors would be great
RyubosJ: @Diabore LUL
malsareus: do these fine feathered party people have self preservation instincts?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: some Guns of the Patriots shit happening in this world
Prop_PT: does ally include Vann?
plummeting_sloth: we need to force some more RAM into Vaam
GDwarble: @malsareus Only if you tell them to
RyubosJ: @Prop_PT Vaan is pet, unique licence /jk
inetro: This system seems really neat but I absolutely see why it was dropped lmao
traccer224: love gambits
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @ladylockwood92 I was going to say I DEFINITELY remember seeing too much bunny boy art from FF14
JDMan94: I mean, FFs barely retain mechanics like gambit between games
Firewhiskers: @inetro It wasn't dropped. FF13 is actually an expansion on this Gambit system with its auto-Job system
JDMan94: so the fact it never came back isn't a shock
KartoffelKaiser: slightly better PogChamp
erg_019: this game was so good
samu_btdp1985: is balthier attacking?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: there’s that guy in FF14 who looks like an Umbreon but is not in fact an Umbreon
Gaz_L: who's checking for licences in the sewers?
nyperold: So were those Gambitwise operations?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: made that mistake once
Diabore: do we already have a license to kill g?
TehAmelie: i deffo don't remember there being bunny boys at all :o
DarkAbyssKeeper: Excuse me sir, do you have a permission slip for that coat?
raulghoulia: James Bond, License points pending to kill
Saphling: that dress? you've got a license to frill
RyubosJ: @Firewhiskers not really. they have almost nothing in common
LordManiMani: @nyperold get out sir
BrowneePoints: Viera got men in FF14
BrowneePoints: Yep took 3 years
northos: correct
BigDaddyBland87: Because of course
TehAmelie: aha
BrowneePoints: 2 years? 3 years
GDwarble: FF14 only added bunny boys about a year ago
accountmadeforants: Bunny boys were only recently introduced into FF14, yeah
odium_chlorite: Male Viera are 14 exclusive and only post Endwalker
JAR_of_stuff: Balthier Bear Arms, confirmed.
malsareus: the mail viera we're still shy at this time
AugmentingPath: men only got patched in last year, yes
TristalMTG: Graham AND Final Fantasy? Two of my favorite things!
Snowcookies: Male viera didn't exist til Endwalker yeah
plummeting_sloth: license to ill > license to breastplate
LadyLockwood92: It was when Endwalker came out. Still waiting on big beefy Lion Women.
thirsty_kitteh: Bunny bois traditionally don't come out of their trees
ContingentCat: I believe I remember a checkpoint story about added bunny boys
Camthelion: Hello G and chat friends!
Diabore: vaan went off
Prop_PT: Male Viera (in Lore) only show up every few 100 years for mating
ChrisGMiller: So you figure they just go through mitosis?
TXC2: hello Camthelion welcome
Andymonium: "Eff this bat in particular" -Vaan I guess
BrowneePoints: Speaking of which Graham, they STILL haven't put in Hrothgar Women
JDMan94: Viera are like Gerudos in that way
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: see this does more accurately capture the D&D/TTRPG experience of trying to corral a bunch of murder hobos desperate to exploit any and all loopholes in your clearly-given instructions.
p_johnston: Wait show up from where?
KartoffelKaiser: Yeah Viera in 14 were a weird situation. Basically, the devs decided that with the resources they had they could add one new race that had men and women, or two mono-sexed races, and they chose the latter
CartoonTattoo: First Aid only works on critical health allies IIRC?
Akaiatana: @ChrisGMiller Fibonacci sequence for rabbits
BusTed: @p_johnston No further questions.
Diabore: if you want balthier to heal the gambit needs to be top
jacqui_lantern234: @p_johnston from hiding Kappa
KartoffelKaiser: later on they decided to add male viera, still no hrothgar women tho ;-;
TehAmelie: and apart from Fran all your party members are plain humans huh
Firewhiskers: @RyubosJ FF13 literally encourages you to autoplay - you just select the jobs and it automatically attacks as needed - the Gambits are hidden but they are very much there.
BrowneePoints: Viera Men in lore in 14 guard Viera Homelands so seeing one out and about was exceedingly rare
ChrisGMiller: @ChrisGMiller untill the world is not but Rabbit ladies
TXC2: TehAmelie yeap
TheDefiledPrince: @p_johnston From the mountains where they're usually stored until needed
RyubosJ: @KartoffelKaiser they also still haven't added hats to viera :(
Prop_PT: First Aid only works on Crit HP
JDMan94: First Aid is only for crit health
goatprince: first aid only works in critical
nyperold: That's better than "males are only born every so often to make the world miserable in their bid to take over."
niccus: not a single playable bangaa (except temporarily)
ggodopaste: you aren'tin combat
TehAmelie: i think i remember why i gave up on the game now
odium_chlorite: could you move yourself so you're not in front of the HP bars?
Didero: Set First Aid above attacking?
Fbomb101ers: just curious where i suggest nicknames for the new mtg set?
Gaz_L: also it should be above attacks, i think or he won't do it?
Syntheticuh: i think its because of the order of your gambits
p_johnston: Do they always do the top gambit first?
RyubosJ: @Firewhiskers and as critical of gambits as i am, that doesn't make it an evolution of gambits.
TXC2: odium_chlorite sadly that puts Graham over the dialogue
Syntheticuh: the top gambit always goes first
WizardZedd: Yeah. I don't think gambits work outside combat. And in combat, he'll always be attacking, because it's the first rule. So he'll never use first aid
odium_chlorite: @TXC2 unfort
Talin06: also it needs to be above the attack order
LadyLockwood92: The Male Viera live in separate tribes. Viera only decide whether they're male of female around the time they're in their equivalent of teenage years, 'cause they can live to be about 400 or so.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @browneepoints wasn’t that the explanation for female turians in ME as well?
p_johnston: So won't he just always attack?
TXC2: Fbomb101ers sites not ready yet
JDMan94: Gambit do work outside of combat
RyubosJ: @WizardZedd they do work outside combat
malsareus: so, does this lNPC logic system always execute the first valid option?
WizardZedd: Oh, do they? OK, I'm mistaken.
dosbilliam: It's essentially the same system as Dragon Age: Origins, just a little rougher in terms of use.
niccus: @Fbomb101ers the url will always be https://lrr.cc/nicknames but it won't be live until a tad after full spoilers are out
Talin06: do gambits run out side of combat?
KartoffelKaiser: beeg froge
JDMan94: yes
thirsty_kitteh: I like that the rangers back off if approached
plummeting_sloth: having first aid for critical HP seems more like last aid
CururuGuasu: Toad rumble
Fbomb101ers: @txc2 thank you. I got a good one for nissa
Didero: The game's all like "Hope you figured out the Gambit system, let's fight!"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I liked assuming female turians looked exactly like male turians to humans and our species has just been making an enormous collective ass out of itself for years.

p_johnston: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou I mean... From what we say kind of yes?
JAR_of_stuff: Man, these sewers giving NYC ones a run for their money on the "giant lizards that habitate in there" game
BrowneePoints: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou I don't remember. But yea in FF14 Male Viera on Hydaelyn are set apart from the rest of Viera society and almost exclusively guard their homes, until recently seeing them out and about was rare, and I believe if they left their posts they couldn't come home
Fbomb101ers: Babe er hoof
malsareus: it's a flintlock
malsareus: sp very
RyubosJ: @JadenMina yes* but only for your healer party members. dps characters like Vaan shouldn't be healing anyway
Carlioo: well he has to load it every time
JAR_of_stuff: What's the opposite of a hair trigger?
plummeting_sloth: he refuses to clean it out of principle
DarkAbyssKeeper: Many men grunt before firing.
CartoonTattoo: It's a pretty big gun
AugmentingPath: that's those animations you said you didn't want to get deep enough to care about :P
BoatyMcBoatfaceJr: 50lb hammer spring
KartoffelKaiser: i think we've established that the characters in this game really like to grunt :P
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Graham cut him some slack No Land Beyond takes a lot of effort to reload
micalovits: We all know you aim better when making weird noises
incslayer: look i have watched the sharpe movies and the ability of a good soldier is to be able to fire a flintlock (rifle) 3 rounds per minute
LadyLockwood92: You're also in a sewer surrounded by water. It's probably damp in here.
LordManiMani: grunt and squeeze the trigger
Sakramizard: gay nerd shit
LordManiMani: @incslayer this is all true
BrowneePoints: Balthier grunts when loads are involved confirmed
BrowneePoints: This is in FF14
JAR_of_stuff: The lack of Benny Hill theme during the fast bits makes me a bit sad
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Devrim Kay is the last dumbass out there using No Land Beyond and we love him for it.
niccus: balthier grunts for his zodiac job, yeah
JadenMina: @ryubosj True, I never gave Vaan healing gambits. He basically just used steal haha
keroan0: The romans could never
KartoffelKaiser: @BrowneePoints ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
JDMan94: like, makes sense it takes something like this to make a desert kingdom work
malsareus: we live dangerously in this stream
TehAmelie: i doubt Victorian London had any finer sewers
traccer224: waterway second most confusing place LUL
BoatyMcBoatfaceJr: the scenic sewers
Didero: We don't need multiple saves because we're never gonna make any mistakes
Carlioo: finally, another real main character
DarkAbyssKeeper: Refuse. You're in the sewer. I get it.
BrowneePoints: the whole ass City of Rabanastre(and the Water ways) are in FF14 as a series of Raids and they're GREAT
ContingentCat: why do the sewers have such high ceilings?
JAR_of_stuff: Lightning?
UpstageJMC: The safety really sticks, so he has to really work to unsafe his gun.
northos: oh hello person we definitely haven't seen before
incslayer: ohh look a future party member
Ranakel: Somebody really went "Here's a blank shet and unlimited workers, just please take care of our shit"
p_johnston: Hey look random person who is likely not important.
vellebastet: I made all of them steal first before attacking 😂
AugmentingPath: oh look a dead princess
plummeting_sloth: "One guy raises his hand sheepishly"
LadyLockwood92: Oh hey! I wonder if she's important
raulghoulia: oh hey she looks familiar
RyubosJ: Hey, was't she dead?
LordManiMani: hey look another main character!
Ravynn: Leaping with sword in hand is a good way to get stabbed
micalovits: Strong boi
Saphling: ah, princess Lei- er.. Ashe!
niccus: vaan's arms fall off
Brozard: Should've kneed him in the face
BigDaddyBland87: and she slices his shoulder
UponMyOath: I dunno, that was kind of cute, haha. Good meet cute
BrowneePoints: Vaan is many things, incompetent ain't one of them
CartoonTattoo: That was a pretty smooth move, yeah
warboss5: A knight in "full" armor? He's pretty buff
Didero: How do you catch her horizontally if she's falling vertically?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: man I wonder if this character is going to be important or anything
TehAmelie: Yun...Ashe!
ggodopaste: balthier is awesome
malsareus: mo characters, mo carrying capacity
RomanGoro: How he managed to catch her sideways when she jumped feet first I'll never know
CartoonTattoo: @Didero Kind of a... scooping motion?
LadyLockwood92: I wonder if she's meant to be a knight/paladin
AugmentingPath: cobelligerent but not allied with the party
Saphling: she deigns to join the party as a guest
Radjack: Did I just hear " 'moe characters, 'moe problems"
UponMyOath: Vaan has a *really* good scoop slam
Didero: @Didero Gotta be real sure of yourself then or you're just helping her hit her head
DanTheMediocre: she is clearly tanking, there is a shield involved
warboss5: See, now those dudes you killed understand what "armor" is!
DanTheMediocre: no matter the lack of good armor coverage
BigDaddyBland87: Let's go with that
p_johnston: Sure glad Vaan has a reaction to the first time he had to murder 4 people.
incslayer: should have gone with "Marle"
dosbilliam: "Presses X to doubt"
KartoffelKaiser: Every name is made up SeriousSloth
cuttlefishman: Darth Amaul-ia
vellebastet: Aren't they all?
raulghoulia: all names are made up
A_Dub888: Regional dialect
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: “you all right?” *uh a bunch of dudes just tried to murder me so??* “…Thank you.”
Gaz_L: Gwanda
thirsty_kitteh: I had forgotten the royal hot pants
malsareus: that's a real world human name right there, fancy
TheMightyTaylor: All names are made up
Slytherin42: all names are made up
TehAmelie: she really looks distractingly like Yuna, it's not just me is it
nyperold: Amalia Wetson!
ShatteredShamrock: Oh thank god Frans here
KartoffelKaiser: Her's is just made up by her SeriousSloth
Firewhiskers: @RyubosJ So the issue FF designers were trying to solve is how to evolve ATB combat in a more action real-time manner. In FFXII they went with an MMO-style (due to FFXI) in which you just program yourself and your companions. In FFXIII, you still program your party, but you rely on the AI scripting more, while going back to the "special attack zone" outside of the world like in previous games. FFXIII doesn't have the granularity of FFXII which made it less cumbersome for new players, and even FF
Diabore: vaan...
wizzo1138: Actually my wife's name :)
Carlioo: yeah! look at this cool thing I stole!
LordZarano: Catching someone wielding a sword seems unwise, like reaching for a dropped knife
warboss5: What is that accent the bunny girl is... attempting?
DarkAbyssKeeper: Vaan cannot read tone.
CartoonTattoo: @warboss5 Icelandic
LadyLockwood92: Maybe don't sound so enthusiastic about having stolen that, Vaan...
ShatteredShamrock: @warboss5 it's based specifically off of bjork
JAR_of_stuff: MY name? Uh... Amahlia...... Earth...Art. Amahlia Earthart!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the VAs were noooot in the same booth for this were they.
BrowneePoints: Yes, for Chat, Fran's Dialect is supposed to be Icelandic
malsareus: the list = "yes"
Gaz_L: FF13's version is also much more active on the player's part because the interaction is when to switch modes
BrowneePoints: in FF14 the main Viera NPCs have Icelandic VOs
Diabore: the save menu is so different on ps5
TXC2: GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou they rarely are
malsareus: how formal
TheMightyTaylor: Also amongst the list of things you have to learn is "the list of things you have to learn."
Gaz_L: Gambits you can... kinda just not play the game and that sorta sucks, imo?
GhostValv: shrugemoji
niccus: a guest character you say
RomanGoro: Pretty good voice acting for the time
RyubosJ: FF13 is also really fun if you ignore auto. Wish there was an option to hide it.
Carlioo: balthier, stop leaning on the 4th wall!
DanTheMediocre: if it helps we're pretty terrible at thievery
BigDaddyBland87: Wait...they are taking orders from Vaan?
BrowneePoints: Amalia's outfit reminds me of both Yuna and Lightning
EC_as_That: We are now more murderes then theifs
JAR_of_stuff: I think you were demoted from Party Leader
flikerz1: I see you are playing the dragon age origins prequiel. cool!
Didero: Why DO Balthier and Fran even take orders from Vaan, anyway?
MrVirite: wet feet all around
Gaz_L: like a gameplay mode that actively encourages the player not to take part isn't great?
vellebastet: @browneepoints I see that now that you say it
malsareus: details, petty details
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: “She’ll leave when she please” hint hint don’t give her your good items
LadyLockwood92: I haven't played this game, but the relationship between 'Amalia' and Fran is pretty interesting in 14.
AdamYMHMI: @Didero He has the conch
TristalMTG: @Didero They let him think he's ordering them, becaus ehe's a useful fool
GapFiller: Didero Vaan is just real charismatic
ShatteredShamrock: surprisingly blue water for the sewer system
ghyllnox: Oh it's far too late for that
Saphling: i still marvel at how much water there is in the desert city
TheThromborax: no, trenchfoot is part of the journey
beowuuf: @Didero player character aura
BrowneePoints: yea idk if you see it graham, but doesn't Amalia's outfit look a bit like Yuna and Lightning's?
Decaped: Vaan makes an excellent fall guy
DarkAbyssKeeper: Too late. Have you drained your pus-sacks yet?
TehAmelie: we're been wading in black water for like two hours, that train has sailed
Snowcookies: trenchfoot or bust
Didero: All good answers, thanks chat
Gaz_L: Amalia is just Shadow from FF6 confirmed
goatprince: I love these flans
incslayer: yum Flan
Didero: I thought First Aid was magic?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @browneepoints I mean isn’t that just the general FF vibe
TheThromborax: there's still time
ShatteredShamrock: I love Fran as Red Mage personally
LadyLockwood92: Huh. Flan.
Saphling: flaaaaaan
TheMightyTaylor: Penelo makes a good mage
TXC2: how tall is Fran?
baskwalla: so... what's the flan here?
lion_byte: steam flan
nyperold: Resistance? Cool, to what elements or debuffs?
jamesk902: Fran, meet Flan. Flan, Fran.
jacqui_lantern234: a man a flan a canal panama
traccer224: flan CoolStoryBob sounds tasty
Saphling: soooo much custard
p_johnston: These sewers are incredibly expansive and well decorated.
RyubosJ: well night all. i'll look forward to the vod
dosbilliam: Flantastic?
JAR_of_stuff: Flan... with knobs?
TheDefiledPrince: O hai Flans cirSlain
GhostValv: sewer flan not on my favorites list
AugmentingPath: oh hey, a fromsoft ceiling slime
Carlioo: the flan flam
Ravynn: Slappy flans
TehAmelie: massive quantities of flan
TXC2: so long RyubosJ sleep well
EC_as_That: Sewer Flan. A favorite
Saphling: fight the flan fam
TheDefiledPrince: That's a healtrhy Flan
vellebastet: Penelo white mage/time mage is amazing
BrowneePoints: fran is 6'2" 7'1" including her ears
Ranakel: Is that one of those "steal from it it's good good items" bosses?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: distant memory tells me I specced Penelo as a mage
BrowneePoints: and that's not counting her heels
TXC2: BrowneePoints dang, thanks
beowuuf: @ShatteredShamrock do we know what colour effluent is in ff? :p
BrowneePoints: Viera are TALL
RomanGoro: I feel like this music is way too epic for a fight against some slime
TehAmelie: stealing items? from bosses? sounds like a plan
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: do you think it’s rude to give people flan in the FF world?
AdamYMHMI: So this is what happens to the hors d'oeuvres after a fancy party
SpoopsAHoy: Nah Amalia seems to wield a sword and shield so *canonically* must be a fighter of some sort :P
BrowneePoints: in FF14 Fem Viera are one of the tallest Race/Gender combos
Snowcookies: smh party members not using AOEs Kappa
DarkAbyssKeeper: Ashmalia
nyperold: Gotta catch Amalia!
Prop_PT: Ash-malia
Pteraspidomorphi: Noo I'm late
LordManiMani: Faramalia
p_johnston: YOu know having a blind archer shooting at the enemy your fighting seems a good way to get shot with an arrow.
LadyLockwood92: @BrowneePoints In fairness it's mostly the ears >.>
Saphling: flutterflan
northos: sounds like the blind leading the blind :D
dosbilliam: It's not an infinite stack of Hi-Potions, but it works. :P
BrowneePoints: @LadyLockwood92 and the height
TheMandrew: chat, i think Amalia might not be who she says she is
BrowneePoints: Viera are just heckin Tall
TehAmelie: any time i hear someone say the name Amalia or Amelia, i feel amazingly old :x
DarkAbyssKeeper: I don't think your supposed to take eyedrops by shattering them above your face.
Ranakel: And that's why you shouldn't toss your used oil in the sink kids
Thandres: not trying to steal from every mob makes this fight so much faster lol
incslayer: what? no this is the poop water reservoir
JAR_of_stuff: @TheMandrew t3ggGasp
CururuGuasu: I think the flan has gone bad
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: what?? They gave it a face?? That defeats the entire point of the flan enemy! Heresy!
TheThromborax: I have bad news for where YOUR drinking water comes from, Island Boy
p_johnston: Eh I'd probably try Flan if I was in the FF world.
Saphling: found a flanberg in the sewers
northos: inb4 gaping dragon crawls out of the water
TXC2: this is the sewer, this is pooping water
flikerz1: Everyone is eEavice has several hundrad tiny flan in their body at all time
LadyLockwood92: I do very much enjoy that female Viera are much taller than the males though, it's very neat especially after the whole thing with the Au Ra.
TehAmelie: i hope the sewers aren't pumping drinking water
KevinTheShark: And that... was the second time I died
KartoffelKaiser: I have terrible news: this isn't even the grossest thing in Dalmascan drinking water SeriousSloth
CaptainSpam: And that purifies the water instantly. Mission complete with no lasting issues!
lannersong: yaaaaay
accountmadeforants: seabatClap
JocelyneAnne: lrrSHINE
nyperold: Yes, the drinking water in the sewers.
BigDaddyBland87: Congratulations
warboss5: I enjoy a good weapon flip celebration, but doing so with a sword seems... dangerous
LadyLockwood92: Conglaturation
MurphEP: Everyone freeze
Saphling: wark wark
KingJimmeh: Congratulations!
Two_Hats: seabatClap seabatClap seabatClap
Shadowsoflife: wark wark
SalmirAeon: you are winner
JAR_of_stuff: I guess FF flan is not vegetarian, then...
GhostValv: tqsClap
accountmadeforants: playfr3Clap gdqClap seabatClap
KartoffelKaiser: LUL
JaymicUnyielding: W A R K
TXC2: !clips
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at https://www.twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun/clips (Please give your clips descriptive names if you want them to be seen!)
BrowneePoints: welp, that needs clipped
Gaz_L: Balthier doesn't hum the song like Barret, 0/10 game
raulghoulia: solid laugh out of me
TehAmelie: Fran has gone grimdark
Saphling: negafran
LadyLockwood92: She's gone Anti-Form.
DarkAbyssKeeper: Dark Fran has entered the fight.
Prop_PT: Black is VERY chic
Didero: Does that... wear off?
BigDaddyBland87: Shadow Fran
raulghoulia: vantafran
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: so this is why Devrim obsessed so much over the water supply in the EDZ
accountmadeforants: Fran is going through her Goth phase
TXC2: "I am not Fran, I am the night!"
Thandres: graham you gotta unlock fran
JaymicUnyielding: goth fran
SerGarretCameron: be the void you want to see in the world.
noSmokeFire: Fran 'n Watch
richard_ermen: Fran is now THE SHADOW
DanTheMediocre: it's just a phase
cassaclyzm: gdqClap gdqClap lrrWOW
Didero: Hi Potion! How're you doing?
thirsty_kitteh: hi potion, how are you?
JaymicUnyielding: Fran got norted...
BrowneePoints: but yea didn't know if you saw Graham, but Fran is 6'2", 7'1" including her ears, and NOT including her battle heels
JAR_of_stuff: Real 90s TMNT comics Rafael energy
thirsty_kitteh: didero: nuuu tha'ts my brain cell
Ranakel: Fran versus Flan left marks
Didero: @thirsty_kitteh it's ok we can share
warboss5: Just have her wash her face in the sewer water, she'll be fine
Masslost: So this is what devrim did outside the last city
BrowneePoints: yep
LadyLockwood92: Viera are big.
BrowneePoints: Beeg Lady
goatprince: I know several people that tall, that work in this office
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Viera are Healthy Bois
LadyLockwood92: Female Viera are at least. Male Viera are smaller, which is fun.
incslayer: remind us graham how tall is the average LRR's man again
MurphEP: Does this categorize her as a "big internet lady"?
A_Dub888: lrrSPOOP
LadyLockwood92: !findquote ghost
LRRbot: Quote #220: "Of course it makes perfect sense! What do the ghosts give you when *you* die? They always give *me* weapons." —Cameron [2015-04-30]
Didero cocks bow: "sewer's haunted"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: LRRfolk are all too tall this is known
JAR_of_stuff: Fran v Lady D. The battle I've waited for whole... 2023 for
JDMan94: *cocks gun* series haintes
Gaz_L: Graham, Adam, Ian: "Huh, so average height?"
BrowneePoints: Fran was one of the original "Big Internet Lady"
JDMan94: I can't type, man
plummeting_sloth: okay, I'm out. No one said this magical adventure had ghosts
Invitare: if you were a ghost, WHY would you CHOOSE to haunt sewers?
AdamYMHMI: @goatprince Now you just need to distribute bunny ears and heels to everyone to complete the experience.
DarkAbyssKeeper: Sewers are definitely haunted. That's why bathrooms smell like something died.
richard_ermen: Great Scott Graham!
Juliamon: Fran is a tall lady, but she's not a *big* lady
Ranakel: Graham "Slightly more than a Fran" Stark
SpacePotato01: A Grahameter
thirsty_kitteh: Ok Graham, what's the air pressure?
richard_ermen: You're juge!
plummeting_sloth: Standard REference Graham
GDwarble: I don't usually use barometers to measure heights
Firewhiskers: How many Ians is Graham?
lostluckDev: I find LRR folk to be perfectly reasonable hieights.
noSmokeFire: OK, what's the atmospheric pressure at the moonbase then
richard_ermen: O_O
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: they put something in the water in Victoria or is it just all the universal healthcare
LadyLockwood92: To quote Alex: 'Ghost, Ghost, Ghost!'
lostluckDev: (but I'm 6'2")
richard_ermen: I feel so small now...
ShatteredShamrock: for a Hu-man
JAR_of_stuff: how tall is Paul?
Snowcookies: "I'm 6'3" so feel free to use me as a barometer"
Didero: LRR: Making above average average!
plummeting_sloth: Paul is 1 Paul tall
Ravynn: Tally and Bill standing side by side was a hilarious juxtaposition
BrowneePoints: yea i'm 6'1" and my dad had a couple friends over 7' and man they make me feel TINY
keroan0: I'm a 5'9 woman and hanging around men I feel pretty averageish. Hanging around all women I feel like a giraffe
SalmirAeon: tall enough to know better?
jamesk902: It's underground, so high. but also on the moon, so Low?
JAR_of_stuff: Ah, so my height.
noSmokeFire: one unit paul
TheMightyTaylor: Last I checked 5'9" was average
TehAmelie: how tall is Pika? i assume at least one person here knows off hand
incslayer: @Ravynn or Adam and Leelee
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: my height would let’s say give me an interesting perspective on Fran.
JAR_of_stuff: LRR is... so tall on average lol
JaymicUnyielding: yall I'm like 5'4" what are yall eating
GhostValv: 1 metric Paul
Pteraspidomorphi feels average
prince_infidel: 1 shiny Paul tall
atinyspacemarine: I'm 6'4" and my girlfriend is 5'2" and it looks so funny
ContingentCat: clearly LRR needs to keep a banana in shot at all times to know the scale
LadyLockwood92: On a scale of 0-1, Paul is 1. 1 Paul.
KevinTheShark: I'm 5'10 and in the UK that puts me at painfully average
northos: Paul's height depends on whether he's standing on top of his PS3s, PS4s, or PS5s
Didero: It's ok, Vaan has a magic resist thingamabob
BrowneePoints: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou 5'3"?
DarkAbyssKeeper: Paul actually 1.03 Pauls tall. The standard Paul got updated.
TheMandrew: i'm 6'5" and whenever i come across someone taller than me, even 1 inch, i feel REAL short
odium_chlorite: the official LRR unit of measurement is the 1 Sander
NightValien28: what would you like ghosts to do, hit you with a sword?
KartoffelKaiser: Grouchy Michael Cera
TristalMTG: I think Garchimacera is from the original Famicom FF3
accountmadeforants: Garchompmacarena
TXC2: JaymicUnyielding 2500 calories a day for 20 years :p
keroan0: Why are there ghosts in the sewers? Are they haunting the toilets?
micalovits: He can still hit things though
ShatteredShamrock: now Vaan has been locked
Prop_PT: all the classic enemies and summons in this game are airships now
JAR_of_stuff: What's the 1 Paul to Smoots conversion?
richard_ermen: I love how casually you fight Ghosts who are usually the point of every GHOST story ever.
Gaz_L: welp, there's a quote
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @browneepoints ……yes.
SalmirAeon: add some Garchimacera to your next curry
northos: Graham "aspiring thief" Stark
LadyLockwood92: !findquote steal
LRRbot: Quote #4547: "If the cat wants some crack, it's gonna break your window and steal your television." —Ian [2017-12-13]
UponMyOath: Man, I love me a bit of Garchimacera, maybe with a little naan on the side
Carlioo: you should make stealing a gambit!
traccer224: Stealing always good gives materials
flikerz1: be gay, use steal
Saphling: stealing is the only way I ever had enough gil.in this game
Coaxtl: I always seem to steal in fits and starts. Steal like crazy for 10 minutes and forget for 2 hours
Faulpyr: I think I did this as: HP == 100% > Steal
Xehep subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 55 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Xehep! (Today's storm count: 25)
plummeting_sloth: Garchimacera, my favorite spanish lullaby
Gaz_L: like an 'until successful' condition?
goatprince: the steal gambit control is honestly the weakest link in this game
goatprince: (there isn't)
KartoffelKaiser: yeah unfortunately there's not
TehAmelie: the way you're supposed to accumulate gil seems to be wandering the wilds and killing animals for their pelts
Firewhiskers: Is there a "Has Item" gambit?
northos: yeah HP = 100% is about the best you can do. honestly it's probably better to just manual steal
LordZarano: The wiki doesn't list Paul's height. It does list Graham's hat size though
Juliamon: head too thicc
Didero: It's to keep in all your brains
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: to be fair few people send Paul pants
cuttlefishman: So you're saying we need to send more hats?
Gaz_L: Feed Dump's legacy
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: but many people send Graham hats
LadyLockwood92: @LoadingReadyRun Donate your eyes, Graham.
DarkAbyssKeeper: Your head is 7 3/4 Pauls?
ContingentCat: big head struggles are real
ChrisGMiller: wat
BigDaddyBland87: uhhh
goatprince: multi-purpose room
flikerz1: uuuuhhh
incslayer: your head looks proportional to the rest of you so im not sure i agree that it is a "Fat Ass Head"
lostluckDev: There are better sources for news, but do they have... this Hat?
Didero: 1) Yes 2) what
JAR_of_stuff: Nope. Dont like that
Saphling: yes
accountmadeforants: As a fellow Big Head Mode person, I get it
SerGarretCameron: a thing that totally normal sewers have.
JDMan94: Graham, your Ian is showing
odium_chlorite: but how large are your eyes so we know who can get them later?
KevinTheShark: The WHAT
flikerz1: !addwuote plz mods
TehAmelie: who actually ended up with the pants on that stream where Paul and James made a pair of pants? i think Paul
BoatyMcBoatfaceJr: yes. latin word for sewer
noSmokeFire: we're certainly spiritually entering the cloaca
ShatteredShamrock: technically? All of the things
AdamYMHMI: @LoadingReadyRun I have the same problem, and no one ever believes me. I get so many "one size fits all" hats that I have to give away to other people.
micalovits: Friend!
KartoffelKaiser: I'm partial to the fire horse myself
Vanbael: !findquote cloaca
LRRbot: Quote #5872: "That was a full-throated cloaca." —Ian [2019-03-08]
Anubis169: !addwuote command not found: Please try again later
RomanGoro: For the record, "cloaca" is the spanish word for sewers"
niccus: oh you need a doctor to look at your cloaca
incslayer: Look its Ponyta
plummeting_sloth: hahah
Gaz_L: thanks Siri
Mashamino: LUL
KingOfDoma: flame hooooorse
SpacePotato01: why is that down there
JAR_of_stuff: Strahd horse?
niccus: it should not be burning like that
plummeting_sloth: Siri, teach me how to do magic
TheMandrew: SIRI! cast blizzard
p_johnston: How do the sewer workers in this city do their job?
Snowcookies: lol siri
NightValien28: siri, learn magic
Didero: Can Siri teach us magick?
odium_chlorite: why is there a Rapidash in the sewers
p_johnston: They must be ripped.
UponMyOath: From wikipedia: The Cloaca Maxima was one of the world's earliest sewage systems
noSmokeFire: OK, Siri, teach Vaan Black Magic
nyperold: Time for some prog rock!
ShatteredShamrock: This is a terrible place for a flame pony
Gaz_L: "Siri, how do i cast Blizzara?"
Greyah: Teach Vaan the magic. His 0 mp will really work out.
Didero: a game so good you don't even need to play it
BigDaddyBland87: Oh you found the fire horse room
TXC2: Rapidash? do we have a blastoise?
AzureishDragoon: Something something can't fight horses club
UponMyOath: I remembered the cloaca joke coming up in Discworld, so had to check
EC_as_That: Oh yeah, The random sewer fire horse
thirsty_kitteh: something something autobattler
ChrisGMiller: She ran calling wiiiiild fire....
Didero: Do you have any pokeballs with you?
NightValien28: TXC2 no, our start was chicorita
dosbilliam: Welp.
Andymonium: "Let's stab this fire with our metal weapons!"
DarkAbyssKeeper: As opposed to evil healing?
plummeting_sloth: firepony want fire rave
accountmadeforants: Can you give the camera a gambit, too? :p
LordManiMani: limit break?
KartoffelKaiser: A special attack that Balthier blocked LUL
flikerz1: How come it gets a limit break before we get one!
TehAmelie: i'm fairly sure the Incas had sewage systems before Latin was even a thing
GDwarble: I kinda love how utterly unexplaned the betentacled fire horse is
JAR_of_stuff: it began casting fire?
MacSquizzy: It appears to have entered caster mode
BigDaddyBland87: it comes with it's own limit break
Coaxtl: It is such a pretty fire horse. As much as I love Rapidash, this is prettier
TristalMTG: It was Bushfire. It said so in the combat log.
Didero: Does positioning matter at all?
Vanbael: first you go into the cloaca, next you're fighting a fire horse... If your cloaca is burning, please see a doctor
hammith: Can't draw fire horses club
Saphling: does the consul know we're keeping this horse down here?
kononeko: this ponyta is sick of this sewer
richard_ermen: Did FF12 use the strange spell names? Are we gonna encounter an enemy casting Firagagagagagagagagaga?
Gaz_L: the log really hammers home much they were using MMO inspiration for this
plummeting_sloth: well, none of you are bushes, so the attack fizzled
KingOfDoma: Wait, who's Amali-... *the person who has only played FFXII vanilla shuts up*
Narcuru: every ~25%?
accountmadeforants: BIG MAD
Anubis169: Graham! I gotta share, this, i'm dying laughing... One of my friends runs a dojo down in London and got a phonecall today. Somebody'd been watching way too much Cobra Kai, or reading Wikipedia or something, and randomly phoned him and challenged him to a fight for ownership of the dojo
p_johnston: My headcannon is that this horse is an integral part of the sewer system that has been incinerating all the waste. By killing it we will have crippled the city infrastructure.
TristalMTG: @richard_ermen Just wait until Firaja.
MrVirite: why is this boss?
Prop_PT: is Amalia running out of MP?
richard_ermen: @richard_ermen Hehe ^^
Anubis169: he was dead serious
TXC2: Anubis169 What?! :D
dosbilliam: The rats Vaan was killing; that's why this boss.
TehAmelie: at least there is no blue magic with spell levels 2.5 to confuse things in this one eh
Vanbael: What happens in the cloaca stays in the cloaca
Firewhiskers: Scourge (the spell) is the worst against you, best for you
BigDaddyBland87: @Anubis169 That is amazing!!
thirsty_kitteh: what happens in the cloaco traditionally doesn't stay in the cloaca
Didero: New protagonist time!
MrVirite: ah our main character dies
plummeting_sloth: this is part of the building's central heating system that got out of the furnace
noSmokeFire: I WISH what happened in the cloaca stayed in the cloaca
richard_ermen: Is this Boss the culmination of all the burning people experience on the can?
TXC2: Anubis169 did he think he Mas Oyama or something? :p
jamesk902: That's the trouble with cloacas though. What happens in the cloaca doesn't stay in the cloaca.
TheMightyTaylor: Love the music in this game
flikerz1: @Anubis169 That had to have been a TRiggerHappyTv prank
CAKHost: SE: We haven't had enough cinemas. Can we make bosses do cinemas periodically?
ylegm: not very good at all
NightValien28: first aid is always a trash skill
Thandres: pretty whelmed by first aid
kononeko: EZ
warboss5: Nooooo, the poor wobbly firehorse!
thirsty_kitteh: Ah, the good ol' Angel Death Screen
ShatteredShamrock: as a treat!
micalovits: Bye Friend!
thirsty_kitteh: *Scream
plummeting_sloth: I mean, it's first aid. They gave you a bandage and some aspirin. Maybe an ace wrap
Gaz_L: doubling their HP!
JAR_of_stuff: its legs moved like mine do after a long bike ride
IviaRelle: First aid hopefully helps you survive until the REAL healing comes along
WizardZedd: This is why the healing rules should be above the attack rules, though. The only reason Balthier is using healing is because you set him as party leader, and he had no attack target.
TehAmelie: well, had
beowuuf: it's a trick "those who can, do, those who can't teach" so if you lose the fight, you get the dojo :p
TristalMTG: The appeal to First Aid is that it's free. The problem with First Aid is you get what you pay for.
SpacePotato01: the boss became a pokeball and flew away?
goatprince: the cloaca has lost one of its purposes....
AdamYMHMI: I mean, bandaids and some hydrogen peroxide only go so far against fire ghost horse wounds.
LadyLockwood92: *Had* a Fire Ghost Horse.
warboss5: Ghost Horse?!? Someone call Kathleen!
richard_ermen: Clearly that was the Spirit of 5-Fire-Chilli
ChrisGMiller: keeps the methane in check
Pywodwagon: Yes. Only a fire ghost.
KevinTheShark: Your.... so Vayne... you probably think this game is about you
TheMandrew: balthier is not an idiot
dosbilliam: That's why I always tried to get everyone able to use Cure before really getting far into the non-Zodiac edition. :P
Dothewhatnow: moon2SPIN
TheMandrew: vaan on the other hand
BigDaddyBland87: because he is smart
kononeko: he probably thinks this game is about him
Didero: I sure don't know
hammith: I know you just beat a fireghosthorse, but fear these crossboaws
AzureishDragoon: I don't know if Fran /cares/
ShatteredShamrock: Fran always knows
SerGarretCameron: patently clueless.
Shadowsoflife: Vann is Vann
odium_chlorite: Vaan is Vaan
Saphling: vaan is vaan
TehAmelie: the fire horse ought to sterilize the wounds it tramples into you, imo
richard_ermen: I mean, Vaan isn't necessarily suiper-dumb but he doesn't really know these people.
Ravynn: Fran probably doesn't care
Coaxtl: Balthier is the wise dude
TXC2: Vaan is denser then Osmium
UponMyOath: Not a lot of photos of her I guess
KingOfDoma: "Vaan is... completely out of it" sums him up pretty well
ContingentCat: and you want them to recognize you're a weird theif?
plummeting_sloth: I'm think-talking
UponMyOath: And even less in the undercity
KartoffelKaiser: poor Penelo
Saphling: I love how often throughout the game Ashe tells Vaan not to interrupt her
EC_as_That: We did kill those soldiers though...
BigDaddyBland87: Penelo trying the insanity plea
keroan0: Smooth
nyperold: "I'm an SSR thief, thank you very much!"
DanTheMediocre: manacles, I think
DarkAbyssKeeper: Balthier is your brother?
ylegm: oh right, these guys
Didero: These guards can't even hold back a teenage girl?
TristalMTG: Philanderer? Balthier collects stamps?
warboss5: Oh man, something about watching the protagonist getting clouted in the back of the head was absolutely hilarious
DarkAbyssKeeper: You look nothing alike?
p_johnston: philanderer?
hammith: Balthier best dude
richard_ermen: HE WAS IN SOUL REAVER!
SpacePotato01: those fantasy villain guards are way more professional and civilized and less murderous than real life police.
LegionofLashes: so this is star wars right?
MrTulip: socking someone with a plate gauntlet is a bit much
p_johnston: That seems like a relic of translation.
JDMan94: so chat
Pywodwagon: @LegionofLashes shhhh
UponMyOath: @Didero I mean, that last guy was just gonna murder her, so
plummeting_sloth: he meant to say philanthropist
Aitsu111: Balthier is many things
TehAmelie: i feel like Fran would drop Balthier like a sack of fertilizer if he went out of line
BigDaddyBland87: so which of those guys was Greedo?
thirsty_kitteh: my take: Balthier is the good kind of bad boi
LegionofLashes: he even said imperials
EC_as_That: Also, wait a minute... We have a licens for being a thief.
KartoffelKaiser: welcome to the most confusing scene in the game
Saphling: philatelist Balthier
JDMan94: oh hey, it's thr second protagonist
warboss5: What time period are we in? Is this a flashback?
goatprince: this scene still doesn't make sense to me
UponMyOath: Reks survived?
ShatteredShamrock: I also forgot he ...survived?
richard_ermen: Reks lived?
LadyLockwood92: Wait? His brother survived? Survived-ish? I guess?
KartoffelKaiser: @warboss5 it's never explicitly stated
ShatteredShamrock: ah thats why
TXC2: maybe it's a dream?
UponMyOath: Oh, metaphorically
richard_ermen: Oh, its a dream
flikerz1: Reks did not live
Saphling: didn't die immediately
beowuuf: wait, reks survived a stomach wound? is he a sith?
Ravynn: Vaan took a few knocks to the head
UponMyOath: Yeah, I get it now
LadyLockwood92: Ah, okay. I didn't realize he got knocked out.
JDMan94: this is him having brain guilt dreams
DarkAbyssKeeper: Balthier was once a Philanthropist, now he is full anthro pissed.
beowuuf: ah, it was aaaaaaaaaall a dream
TehAmelie: that was totally Galadriel's ring
accountmadeforants: So, what's with that bed's headboard? Why's there a hole right where the pillow goes?
p_johnston: Wait but wasn't Reks the only witness to the treachery?
LadyLockwood92: Yeah, fair enough.
Pteraspidomorphi: We got distracted thinking about philately
ylegm: probably chipped teeth
flikerz1: Can Vann really get any dumber tho?
richard_ermen: One of these days those constant head traumas have to make Vaan more intelligent!
warboss5: I feel like it wasn't clear that was a dream, it felt like a flashback?
TehAmelie: bless
beowuuf: bless you
GhostValv: salud
richard_ermen: Gesundheit
odium_chlorite: sand got in your nose we get it
Didero: All that sand makes ya sneeze
Derthon: cohhBless
RomanGoro: Salú
JDMan94: but yeah, Reks is his bro
KartoffelKaiser: Yeah, it's implied that Reks survived for some amount of time but not clear if it was long enough for Vaan to ever see him again
ChrisGMiller: boooo
p_johnston: Like who else told everyone that Basch killed the king if Reks died?
JocelyneAnne: A+
kononeko: Vann in the concussion protocol for the next 4 game hours.
ylegm: booo
beowuuf: i wasn't quick enough to type that as i would have to spell it correctly :p
flikerz1: Finally your awake
dosbilliam: The first place you do NOT want to go the wrong way in.
Ravynn: kononeko More like the rest of the game....it'd certainly explain some things
UponMyOath: @p_johnston The captain was captured by Vayne, and executed. So they must have announced what happened
Vanbael: was half betting we would awake in skyrim
BrowneePoints: Honestly, and I know this will make some FF7 fans mad, but I think Vaan is a better take on Cloud as the "protag who doesn't know what's going on"
GDwarble: Bit sandy
richard_ermen: Suddenly we're in Prince of Persia?
Seth_Erickson: was gonna say for a dungeon cell it looks quite nice
LadyLockwood92: Quick Vaan...beat Balthier up. He's the biggest guy in here.
cassaclyzm: escher3PUN escher3PUN
MrTulip: nice place, for a dungeon
ylegm: this place would cost how much as housing today
warboss5: Protagonist in prison... attempted assassinations... Where's King Patrick Stewart when you need him?
JDMan94: He ain't gonna be in Rush Hour 2
Seth_Erickson: well we didn't see the dead body before
ShatteredShamrock: someone left their bangaa out
richard_ermen: @BrowneePoints Congrats, now I'm mad. Also I disagree ;)
micalovits: Should have just run from the fire friend
TXC2: this is big cell for two (three?) people
kononeko: @Ravynn yeah... yeah...
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It’s not the same dungeons are three-man and Prison of Elders is matchmade
BlindProphet32: Just a corpse...
TehAmelie: i think never going into the cloaca would serve any given person anywhere in life
odium_chlorite: lovely corpse, is it imported?
EC_as_That: Is a prison and a dungeon actually the same thing?
TXC2: "just" a corpse
Robot_Bones: A corpse should be left well enough alone
plummeting_sloth: "You're awake!" "No" "... I mean, you clearly are awake" "maybe okay" "you... sufferered a nasty head wound" "Nosh"
KartoffelKaiser: "lmao 17 year old relax it's just a dead body, a reminder of your own mortality"
ShatteredShamrock: There's Fran now!
richard_ermen: @EC_as_That Not since 1974 it isn't anymore.
BrowneePoints: yea but satisfaction bought it back Balthier
odium_chlorite: @Robot_Bones Lady Maria, a corpse should be still...
plummeting_sloth: "Oh, don't worry about that, there's a sound effect factory next door"
accountmadeforants: Neither of us are cats, and Fran is a bunny, Balthasar!
BigDaddyBland87: That's just his pee
ShatteredShamrock: It's just a model
BrowneePoints: if you're gonna use an idiom use the whole damn idiom Balthier
richard_ermen: Is this close to scenic Tenuto?
Didero: Man, even the dungeon level is far too big
prince_infidel: Honestly, nice dungeon
LadyLockwood92: Yeah Balthier! Miqo'te aren't in this game!
Pteraspidomorphi: It is great real estate
Pteraspidomorphi: So roomy
richard_ermen: 691!....suddenly Les Mis Flashback!
ylegm: Nalbina Dungeons : Remember to apply for FASTPASS
DarkAbyssKeeper: That's number 69 one to you.
SalmirAeon: I am not a number! Don't send that balloon after me!
GhostValv: now 20% less soggy than the sewers
TehAmelie: nice +1
MacSquizzy: Doesn't look THAT sealed off considered there's a gap in the roof
LordShadner: stay cause you don't have a choice
Didero: This music doesn't sound like dungeon music
warboss5: So their prison system is to just dump people into a sealed off under-level with no supplies and let them die off? Seems almost humane compared to our own.
odium_chlorite: but I love my bones
Didero: can you... loot the corpses?
Seth_Erickson: yeah gonna say not that many corpses tbh
Vanbael: he's just starting his corpse pile
TheThromborax: I put 70 hours into this game and then....just didn't finish it. I should do that
EC_as_That: He's just sleepy
noSmokeFire: the corpse pile has a backlog
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: “the corpse-pile” is that a good idea in a world with zombies and necromancy
Seth_Erickson: He's an aspiring corpse piler I see
BrowneePoints: that's not great esprit de corpse Graham
Seth_Erickson: the humble beginning
odium_chlorite: an Empire? Bad? Nah
Seth_Erickson: beginnings*
warboss5: Imperials?!? Anyone know how many guards are stations on each level?
KartoffelKaiser: LUL
TehAmelie: this was after FF10, remember. you know, the game where you get put into the sewers to fight your way out as a method of "execution"
richard_ermen: Has there EVER been a good empire in fiction?
plummeting_sloth: nice to see a prison with a welcoming comittee
incslayer: @warboss5 never more than 12
warboss5: @incslayer YES!
nyperold: Xenoblade Chronicles?
odium_chlorite: this song's pretty nice
p_johnston: why did balthier make a point about only having one thing of water when there is a well literally outside their door.
Didero: whoosa dagoosa?
accountmadeforants: "Fresh blood", says the guy with the highest number we've seen so far.
warboss5: Is youza da Dagooza?
noSmokeFire: not much, whoosa dagoosa with you?
Firewhiskers: @richard_ermen The Atreides from Dune?
Didero: Why are they wearing a huge cog around their neck/
TehAmelie: those lizard people remind me of Mare Internvm, if people have read that
GDwarble: That one guy just died a lot
JDMan94: ever just wanna yeet some rust
BrowneePoints: that's not very Bangaarang of them
DarkAbyssKeeper: Corpse. Corpse. The same corpse.
northos: what did you expect? a modicum of rust?
TXC2: it's the same one corpse?
Amras0x00: we're just gonna gloss over the person wearing a gear wheel as a scarf?
plummeting_sloth: All of these prisoners are people that failed to guard the shield generating mages, they know why they're here
Decaped: This place is the best multiplayer season FFXIV has ever done.
BigDaddyBland87: oh god, we got Tetanus
incslayer: @Firewhiskers the Atreides are clearly a duchy not an empire
MrVirite: this music is very... intense.
warboss5: While there are animal people around, the less said about "knots" the better
KartoffelKaiser: @p_johnston the writers and the area designers didn't communicate well on this one LUL
dosbilliam: Not wrong.
Firewhiskers: Does this game ever explain the mechanics behind the Knots of Rust?
KartoffelKaiser: @Firewhiskers heck no
Vanbael: those poor demons...
BrowneePoints: I thought it was Drums in the deep
richard_ermen: @richard_ermen Hmmm.....
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: aw what happened to those poor demons
EC_as_That: Maybe it is nice demons?
Invitare: but the demons clearly need help
JDMan94: you can just throw them
ggodopaste: oh! this is about as far as I got in the game!
richard_ermen: "Element: None"....that's a weird element.
KartoffelKaiser: Knots of Rust are one mechanic in the big pile of "talk about it on the internet and figure it out" mechanics this game has
LadyLockwood92: Just deals unaspected damage.
goatprince: it's wibbly numbers and Strat stuff, useful for low level runs
p_johnston: So it's pretty much just throwing a rock?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: rust doesn’t do equipment damage? Missed opportunity.
accountmadeforants: A very effective prison, they put in a save crystal so you can't even reload your old save!
plummeting_sloth: deals tetanus damage
DanTheMediocre: single-use elemental aligned damage consumable items?
KartoffelKaiser: I think that's a good call 😅
Firewhiskers: Basically Knots of Rust are used to power up items you don't have yet so why they are giving them to you now, I dunno
ggodopaste: This is right around where I got stuck being too underleveled for a boss fight!
flikerz1: I think they can be used for something later to be forged into better stuff, or you can use them to deal a tiny bit of damage if you need it
lannersong: its the boys
Didero: It's raining men, hallelujah
UponMyOath: The art style in this game hasn't aged badly
Invitare: is this Daguza?
ShatteredShamrock: these guys have a lot of energy for a place with only one waterskin to share
KartoffelKaiser: yup!
fiftymcnasty: RIP Jarjar
warboss5: Wait... Bokoblins? Is this a Zelda crossover now?
plummeting_sloth: ah sheet we found street sharks
p_johnston: Hey look a unicorn!
SacrificialToast: yeah? so are you
cuttlefishman: Scooby?
micalovits: Van is not having a good day
cuttlefishman: That sounds like Scooby Doo
TristalMTG: It's ok, they'd still let Vaan play in the NHL in the third period
Thandres: thats definitely not helping with the list of things to get
LadyLockwood92: Vaan just can't avoid Traumatic Brain Injuries.
SerGarretCameron: looks like we'll soon be in the market for a fourth protagonist?
LegionofLashes: turns out the rest of the game is just a fever dream from the concussions
incslayer: look i know how these things work in cartoons the second blow obviously restores our memories
TXC2: "and that was the 2nd time I became concussed"
longarmsshow: Welcome to the prison INSIDE the prison!
jamesk902: You know, all these head hits might explain why Vaan is slow on the uptake.
NightValien28: how many more hits to the head can vann take
plummeting_sloth: every one of those gates is extremely climbable Vaan
ShatteredShamrock: maybe the game is hopping one of these bonks will get Vaan into "Genius Mode" a la Flintstones Logic
samu_btdp1985: maniacal laugh
TehAmelie: hey, this game isn't as bad as every other Final Fantasy i've played when it comes to killing the PCs in cutscenes and then having them be fine for no reason
richard_ermen: I mean, a dungeon can be a pig sty.
corefluxx: Berubibibi
KevinTheShark: Okay. so the first rule
ShatteredShamrock: Good Wisdom!
richard_ermen: Also, suddenly star wars pig people.
TehAmelie: let me just say: falling great distances
Prop_PT: is that a racial slur Balthier
Invitare: wait open the gate before you jump do-oh no
Firewhiskers: The animation is this game is so good for a PS2 game.
laundreydhull: see ere, ya see...!!
Didero: Nodding doesn't work if he can't see your head, Vaan
corefluxx: Son of Fisty
laundreydhull: imma pummel ya into pulp, ya see...

SacrificialToast: those guys look a lot tougher than they are i guess
richard_ermen: The music reminds me of ....Vagrant Story
KartoffelKaiser: yeah they're no match for the power of JRPG Protagonist
beowuuf: not so tough without your ceilings and your clubs, are ya :p
p_johnston: I'm pretty sure Vaan would have been ok alone.
KevinTheShark: "ya alright vaan?" Vaan: "Wabba kalba jackambo"
Manae: You'd think something so big and meaty would be more resistant to fist-sized blunt trauma
BrowneePoints: FF is a franchise well known for its music, but FF12 has some REAL great tunes
Ravynn: Hit them so hard they became sand
Invitare: it's possible all that brain damage has mdae you immune to pain
incslayer: no look Vaan was hungry
A_Dub888: Punched into dust
Didero: Pretty sure you can just climb the gate, doesn't look hard
GDwarble: Balthier ate them, bones and all
longarmsshow: Those guys need to go to the prison next door, Weenie Hut Alkatraz
LadyLockwood92: Is this our first Judge?
JDMan94: Judge time
Dalrint: the Judge armor designs are *so good* in this game
TXC2: LadyLockwood92 yes
laundreydhull: oh, I remember this fella
BigDaddyBland87: Ok HOW!
KevinTheShark: Those gates and fences look awfully climbable
TehAmelie: Let the Right One In: Ivalice Edition
richard_ermen: Empire must be incredibly advances seeing how movable their armor is and how much they've got of it that looks EXACTLY the same.
Didero: Long enough
noisyblizzard: we ate ourselves
DarkAbyssKeeper: Balthier's brother!
Brozard: f e e t
Gekyouryuu: bagamnan?
LegionofLashes: bahgh, solo!
ShatteredShamrock: head blades really ruin your peripheral vision
JDMan94: for FREE
odium_chlorite: thanks game
DueRecompense: feet
GhostValv: ??
TXC2: them some weird feet
A_Dub888: !card oubliette
LRRbot: Oubliette [1BB] | Enchantment | When Oubliette enters the battlefield, target creature phases out until Oubliette leaves the battlefield. Tap that creature as it phases in this way.
incslayer: wait was she walking around barefoot in the sewers as well?
corefluxx: As opposed to leaving before this all started
Didero: gotta zoom out a bit to get the boobs in shot
LadyLockwood92: Huh...Viera have normal feet in 14, I'm just realizing.
TXC2: did Rob Lifield draw those feet?
CyberColossus: is this the same MIST from FF9?
KartoffelKaiser: @CyberColossus yes and no
Prop_PT: BackGammon
p_johnston: Maybe in one of the other rooms you can't see?
Manae: Why does the oubliette have a way out? That's against the entire purpose of an oubliette
nyperold: Don't attack the Mist!
p_johnston: There were like 5 of them.
Pteraspidomorphi: "Say that again, for the audience"
TehAmelie: no, no. if it was Rob Liefeld there would have been a rock in the way so he didn't have to draw the feet
LadyLockwood92: Oh hey, these guys are in 14 too.
plummeting_sloth: headhunters? Oh, are we getting job scouted?
th3mpire: i have to do what now
JDMan94: oh
MrAyeAxe: Steve Blum playing another morally questionable bounty hunter LUL
lannersong: Judge designs are so cool
Mordin_Solus_Sings: @Manae Balthier mentions earlier this is just an old ruin that was repurposed rather than a proper dungeon.
BrowneePoints: uh oh
BrowneePoints: he has a cape
Carlioo: it's the imperial march!
KartoffelKaiser: PogChamp
Prop_PT: Gaius? Wait
Saphling: there's a voice
warboss5: Darth Vader?
TXC2: TehAmelie good point
micalovits: Totally not evil Helm
richard_ermen: I love the JUDGES
Didero: Increasingly impractical armor
Vanbael: lrrJUDGE
MurphEP: lrrJUDGE
Invitare: oh it's the Imperial March
Shadowsoflife: lrrJUDGECALL
northos: would Vaan really not know what Judges are?
A_Dub888: lrrJUDGE
TheDefiledPrince: A Judge cirSlain
lannersong: "What if all our generals were Darth Vaders?"
BigDaddyBland87: Darth Judge
voren_chalco: Dredd?
Kiytan: they must be important - they have the biggest hats
Mordin_Solus_Sings: @lannersong But with bigger hats
Mashamino: you know he's important because his helmet gets extra reverb
AzureishDragoon: Judges were great/terrible in Tactics Advance, would come in and set bullshit rules you had to follow in battle
BrowneePoints: So Graham, I'm just now realizing how damn much of the visual Design in FF14 is driven by this game
incslayer: What are we suddenly in Mega City One?
Pywodwagon: defenders of Archadias IPG
Robot_Bones: Judge Judy and aexecutioner
Gekyouryuu: tell me, for whom do you fight? hmph, how very glib. and tell me, do you believe in Dalmasca?
flikerz1: he knows allot. Guess that its nothing.
lannersong: A whole squad of sassy Darth Vaders
corefluxx: I am the LAWWWW
Prop_PT: @BrowneePoints oh yeah, massively
warboss5: Gatta love that fantasy racism
MrTulip: judging, executing, take your pick
Snowcookies: They look like Garlean armours
Pywodwagon: @BrowneePoints it was Yoshi-p's first square game
plummeting_sloth: "What...I literally can't hear you through the mask"
JDMan94: that voice...
jdtreker subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 32 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, jdtreker! (Today's storm count: 27)
lannersong: Garlean designs were based on Judges, especially Gaius
BrowneePoints: Like, it's been a LONG time since I've played ff12, but damn FF14 cribs a LOT of the visual design from this game
ShatteredShamrock: very intentional
fiftymcnasty: Where is IG-88
TXC2: so are we ignoring how these soldiers helmets are the same as the clones from star wars?
beowuuf: yup
KartoffelKaiser: @BrowneePoints yeah being a huge fan of this game is what sold me on FF14 tbh
LegionofLashes: no we're all well aware of it :P
KartoffelKaiser: and i haven't even hit Stormblood yet
incslayer: im not that fond of her helmet tbh
lannersong: @BrowneePoints I thought it was FFIII then 12 if memory services. Hence why Crystal Tower was the first raid
TehAmelie: as i understand, there is an acknowledged chain of events and shared story between FF Tactics, 12 and 14
UponMyOath: I like Fran's voice
Mordin_Solus_Sings: Weird snap from Balthy
LadyLockwood92: For folks mentioning Yoshi-P, the Garleans looked like that before ARR.
DarkAbyssKeeper: Noses. Huh.
Didero: I still can't determine what accent Fran's voice actor is going for
micalovits: NoseS? She has more than one?
JDMan94: Fran is the most capable of the party
nyperold: The hare and the two humans?
Genie_M: Icelandic
Saphling: vieras' noses
BrowneePoints: @lannersong a lil, but the design is WAY more leaning to FF12 than 13.
GhostValv: Stealth 100
Coaxtl: I noticed that too
ShatteredShamrock: they... just have them sitting out?
BigDaddyBland87: MGS guard levels have nearsightedness
NightValien28: loot
sirpythias subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 17 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, sirpythias! (Today's storm count: 28)
northos: okay Urianger
hammith: I love Balthier
Saphling: balthier's great
TehAmelie: that's a deep reference there Graham
KevinTheShark: Yeah, but you didn't have to say it like a pompous ass Balthier
IviaRelle: If memory serves, this was where one of those silly "don't open THIS chest or you'll miss the zodiac spear" chests was. Don't miss those.
KartoffelKaiser: Congratulations! If this was the PS2 version you would have just lost the Zodiac Spear :)
varmintx0: Been a long ass time since I've heard "helps to have a map."
Gaz_L: and it gives protect?
Dalrint: I think it's a permenant protect
Talin06: this is a very poorly run dungeon.
Spacecarl: hah did they not take the thing you stole?
Firewhiskers: @IviaRelle Those aren't in the Zodiac edition
JDMan94: it halves ice, looked like
TehAmelie: i heard it yesterday, but then i am on a W+P rewatch marathon
IviaRelle: Yeah, I meant I don't miss those from the original, sorry.
EC_as_That: Immunity to sap? Haha! take that plants!
KartoffelKaiser: @Spacecarl they did, they just threw it in the same pile as the rest of our stuff LUL
SacrificialToast: does not give immunity to saps though
incslayer: so not Escape from Tarkov?
TXC2: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer means break time for YOU, so unclench, get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet if you need to. Don't forget to wash your hands!
beowuuf: we can run from our jail, but not from our concussions
MrAyeAxe: the money ran out before the Nalbina contractors were able to put a door on the equipment room
richard_ermen: I mean, escaping from jail is a classic story HahaThink
Didero: Oh jeez stream's already been going for 90 minutes. Time flies when you're enjoying yourself
nyperold: So in any cutscene where things are getting a bit emotional, that ring keeps Vaan stoic.
Firewhiskers: I believe a great sage once said, follow me, set me free, trust me and we will escape from the city.
nyperold: Sonic the Sagehog
Didero: I remember in the JRPG Kathleen played for her PiF, she had to do off-stream grinding to keep things going a bit. Is that necessary for FF12 too?
JDMan94: probably not as much as an SMT game
LordZarano: Tourmaline: it comes in different colours http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/3100/3744/articles/Tourmaline_1024x1024.jpg
JDMan94: SMT is notoriously hard
northos: @Didero generally not unless you're doing the really high end optional stuff
DueRecompense: rock protect against tree
Didero: Great, thanks Chat
Didero: I love how helpful people here are
Didero: lrrSHINE
DueRecompense: Jebaited
malsareus: there's 514 of us, we can take turns being useful
northos: !listen
LRRbot: Chat? Engaging in mimicry?
LadyLockwood92: !beej
northos: oh, that might be oddly prophetic for this next area :)
Firewhiskers: @Didero For the sidequests, yeah actually doing them offstream is probably for the best since they usually don't have cutscenes and give good drops.
JakeKamas: Hey good people of chat, I was a little distracted when Amalie(?) showed up, I know Balthiel called her an insurgent but it seems there was more to that that I missed
niccus: ~~time to escape from the city~~
JakeKamas: What was the subtext or is it something that gets revealed later?
shurtal: time to cheese it from the fuzz
malsareus: So are we a Skyrim yet?
TXC2: and we're back
Gekyouryuu: let's get oubli-out
JakeKamas: Okay cool, sorry if I was a bother then
TehAmelie: Amalia was her name, i know that much
JakeKamas: Thank you Graham!
cassaclyzm: let's blow this popsicle stand
incslayer: im assuming shes a "Marle"
Spacecarl: that was a great little animation
JDMan94: as far as we know, she's a part of the resistance
GapFiller: Speaking of stuff we mightve missed has Vaans past come up yet?
BrowneePoints: So speaking of Destiny
Didero: Can we press X to shout again?
plummeting_sloth: better than a lot of turnpurses and cutkeys
TXC2: I read that as turkeys :p
GapFiller: His connection to Reks eg?
DueRecompense: ol' english
Saphling: "lightly" as in hack our way through
jessicaengle: Hi Graham! How is everybody this fine Final Fantasy day?
malsareus: Graham channeling his inner Agatha
northos: @GapFiller yes, we know he's an orphan and Reks's brother
BrowneePoints: holy shit Lance Reddick just got announced as the Main Villain for Season 2 and 3 of the Critical Role Animated Show
DarthRagnar815: Use vents?
Dalrint: Fighting them doesn't change anything, if I remember right
TXC2: hello jessicaengle welcome
EC_as_That: Stealth 2: the sequel
nyperold: You know you're going to be hungry for more chains in an hour.
jessicaengle: @EC_as_That I think you mean "Sneakquel"
accountmadeforants: If only we were able to shout them away with that one game mechanic that would definitely return :p
jessicaengle: jlrrFacepalm Sorry I can't help myself sometimes. I'll try to do better :D
TehAmelie: i tell people "Amelie, like in the movie, Amelie of Montmarte" and they're like "Amelia, like the old lady magazine. got it."
malsareus: they dinged
plummeting_sloth: man Balthier's gun sounds so piddly
GapFiller: northos okay not been following continuously so missed that bit (gotta rewatch the vods then)
Firewhiskers: I genuinely wish you could assign stat points after Level Ups in this game but they are auto-assigned
DueRecompense: @plummeting_sloth its shooting onions
GapFiller: or just play the game again
EC_as_That: @jessicaengle I did now yes
malsareus: so, can we do a visceral on that bloke?
malsareus: us being a rogue and all
GapFiller: it’s been a while since playing it mysln
accountmadeforants: Vaan being able to steal from the front is in itself kinda impressive :p
malsareus: a wizard!
LadyLockwood92: I hope they remake 9 someday.
JDMan94: well, it's on the infamous NVIDIA leak list
TehAmelie: i liked the system in FF2 h where you get better at things by doing them; has there been any repeats of that since?
incslayer: Dont call me Shirley!
warboss5: It seems wrong for a "Hoplight" to be armed with a greatsword
Ewayko: Shirley is not a playable character, unfortunately.
cassaclyzm: the little portrait that shows up on the battle menu is pretty cute
DueRecompense: if you put cursor on memory, you wont have to nav menus for repeated inputs
Songar87: Good morning Graham! sergeHi I'm so happy you're getting your hair back! lrrSHINE lrrAWESOME
shurtal: more of a Hopheavy at that point, @warboss5
Rhapsody032590 subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 54 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Rhapsody032590! (Today's storm count: 29)
TXC2: hello Songar87 welcome
malsareus: maybe it's hop as in the crop and it means they're a lightweight
Dalrint: I usually make a gambit that's just 'steal' as the top thing and then turn it off for bosses.
Manae: @TehAmelie Not directly, since it made for an easily-exploited system. But 5 and 6 at least both had ways to affect your stats at level-up
Songar87: @TXC2 sergeHi sergeFriend
EC_as_That: The system works
malsareus: it's the circle of potion life
GhostValv: you've... demonstrated a loop?
plummeting_sloth: really, shouldn't looting the dead be a KIND of thievery
incslayer: potion is 120HP
Didero: There was a < 30% too, right?
BigDaddyBland87: at that point, I feel like the thievery isn't as important
EC_as_That: @plummeting_sloth I am 99% sure it already is
niccus: it's more robbery than thievery
EC_as_That: lrrJUDGECALL
fiftymcnasty: This was the last FF for ps2 right?
JDMan94: yeah, it was
malsareus: In my de we just knocked
Firewhiskers: Every time you have to leave this place, you have to do this
Leonhart321: Oh yeah, I forgot you have to buy or earn some of the Gambits in the game
accountmadeforants: Oh wow, there's another wall behind that wall! :V
BrowneePoints: this is a good remaster
TehAmelie: the pain of rpgs: keeping people at FULL health is wasteful, so they'll all have to walk around a bit dented all of the time
fiftymcnasty: Yeah this remaster looks good
warboss5: Gatta love the timing on that booty shot
plummeting_sloth: higher textures indeed, Fran
GDwarble: The camera never misses a chance to frame Fran
JDMan94: Art direction goes a LONG way
Daisyg1313: Ooooo. Graham stream! Way to chill on my birthday 🤷🏻‍♂️
corefluxx: I still need to finish this game
Half_Duplex: leave no loot table unturned
bytecaster: There could be loot after all!
TXC2: man it's such a mystery why people liked Fran so much Kappa
Saphling: I gotta run. will catch the vod later. have fun escaping the dungeon!
Leonhart321: A riddle for the ages
malsareus: we will never know for sure
incslayer: considering Fran's Clothing Choices i can see why she choose archery if someone hit her with a sword there is NOOOO armour
dosbilliam: I can just imagine how much time would go into Poach attempts if that gets seriously pursued...
JDMan94: its like... yeah, Fran is hot. But she is also incredibly capable and smart.
BigDaddyBland87: he steals better blind apparently
EC_as_That: I see we are using the ME2 style of cutscene camara
TXC2: so long Saphling stay safe
Firewhiskers: And now Graham leanrs about chains
LordShadner: rare drop
warboss5: I think it was another potion?
JDMan94: Oh yeah, when you chain the same kind of enemies, you get better stuff
DueRecompense: yes, chain
BlueMagnusStormCrow: yes
dosbilliam: Chain levels increase drop rate and numbers. :p
JDMan94: I loved chaining enemies in this game
TheDefiledPrince: Yep
GapFiller: its like the X/X2 remaster where people didnt realise how much of a graphical update it was until A/Bing the remaster w/ the original
TheThromborax: gotta love steal
Two_Hats: LP?
TehAmelie: hm, i own this game for PS2 but i do not have a working PS2 anymore. should i expect more backwards compability in PS6 or should i do crimes?
JDMan94: License Points
GDwarble: @GapFiller Oh, even without that this game clearly looks a lot sharper than it used to
lannersong: Fair
incslayer: Fair
BlueMagnusStormCrow: fair
JDMan94: Its very like Hades, in that regard
GhostValv: doesn't hurt
richard_ermen: Weirdly hot even.
GDwarble: This game isn't quite FF14 levels of "everyone's hot", but it's getting there, to be sure
Metric_Furlong: I mean, they're not wrong
Vanbael: I mean...you're not wrong
GapFiller: TehAmelie the solutions is always do crimes
plummeting_sloth: I mean, did you SEE those Flans earlier
TheThromborax: holy crap Oded Fehr. *swoon*
thirsty_kitteh: All kissable, few datable
A_Dub888: I mean....
reddog13gaming: lol
ThreeCatsInATrenchcoat: Can't argue with that
UponMyOath: The whole cast is hot has been a stable of acting for years, haha
beowuuf: @Leonhart321 i second that emotion
JadenMina: Bosch is my fav
JDMan94: oh LOOK chat
Vanbael: even the judge is hot
Coaxtl: Gotta go pick up the kids and teach 3 hours of piano! See you all later
TheThromborax: twinsies!!
BrowneePoints: Look, as a Bi Man
LadyLockwood92: Yeah. That's fair, and they both share the fact that one of the va's is in Destiny.
JadenMina: But yeah all are hot
BrowneePoints: this game give me BI PANIC
warboss5: "Very thin" apparently means "Still have amazing abs" in this universe
Andymonium: oh dang I loved your work in The Machinist
JDMan94: Big thinkers
incslayer: @TheThromborax Uhm Excuse me you clearly mean John Hannah
LordManiMani: this guy is very very important. I misunderstood a lot by forgetting him
TehAmelie: be Fran, do crimes. seems like a plan
AmathySkellington: The Mummy cast *is* hot but it's also just a fun popcorn movie to put on.
Didero: His hair is looking very good for being locked up for two years
plummeting_sloth: "Sorry, I only got like half of that with the helmet on"
BrowneePoints: Also, someone pointed out that Jonathan in the Mummy was most likely a WW1 Vet, which is why he's a disaffected drunkard
LadyLockwood92: I would like to counter the 'Balthier is hot' with Basch is hot.
BrowneePoints: who is also very capable
GhassanPL: You, you're no hollow
corefluxx: Sir... SIR!... Im going to need you to take the mic out of your mouth
MurphEP: I did nawt
jaydobbleyou: I went back and rewatched all the Craploads, Such high quality jokes
warboss5: Dalmasca?!?
GDwarble: I love Balthier's writing, and the voice acting for him is excellent
Leonhart321: I'll go tell the king he wasn't killed
TehAmelie: Patrick Rothfuss has a sole trademark on "kingslayer" now, so
JDMan94: Note: they didnt see the judge guys face
LordManiMani: woooo
JDMan94: love that detail
BigDaddyBland87: with her leg
Leonhart321: Well, he's dead
BrowneePoints: I told you
MarsIsDead: Balthier is probably my favorite character in all FF
warboss5: Did she just crescent kick that lever rather than using her hands?
BrowneePoints: Fran, is, a badass
TheAinMAP: jlrrFall
LordManiMani: l e g
UponMyOath: That guy comes in like "Man, i'm still alive"
malsareus: so we dedd
plummeting_sloth: "Wait... just... regular pirates? No... no that's far too silly"
BigDaddyBland87: ok that AHHH made me laugh
TehAmelie: meh, we didn't need all those legs
shurtal: real vicious scream there, Vaan
plummeting_sloth: spare us your liquidities
LordManiMani: said Balthier
Pteraspidomorphi: That's a new word for me
DueRecompense: the dialog is so fresh
A_Dub888: Over/Under on broken bones?
TXC2: Quiddites? the fuck is that?
Mordin_Solus_Sings: Balthier loves his Thesaurus almost as much as he loves himself
noisyblizzard: sounds tasty
kid_flashionable: I remember hearing that they also made the faces in a particular way in this game too, but my memory is failing me
plummeting_sloth: my arm is a literal sword after all
BrowneePoints: the inherent nature or essence of someone
incslayer: Balthier is clearly subscribed to those "one word a day calenders"
malsareus: so many guests today
BrowneePoints: most often used in "his quirks and quiddities
Leonhart321: Balthier is so extra with his vocabulary. And yet, it works
Vanbael: Quiddities *writes it down for scrabble*
LordManiMani: Reks survived to tell, didn't he?
TehAmelie: quiddity is in the dictionary. i do not know any more than that
thirsty_kitteh: uuhhh
nyperold: "And my bow arm." "And my axe arm."
cuttlefishman: Honestly I'm amused how Balthier is compared to Han Solo considering how different a character he is
TheDefiledPrince: @Mordin_Solus_Sings A man after my own heart :V
thirsty_kitteh: should we be glowing?
richard_ermen: Van has Protagonist-Powers?
Didero: Dude's been locked up for two years, his muscles must be athrophied
KartoffelKaiser: yeah Vaan's got big "believed Ondore's Lies" energy
LadyLockwood92: So I use Basch's chest armour and gauntlets as part of my Warrior outfit in 14.
Mordin_Solus_Sings: @Leonhart321 Balthier is extra in everything, and it's great
malsareus: are we still blind?
MurphEP: Don't believe Andor's lies, or so I'm told
Greyah: I mean how useful could he even be? He's been stuck in prison for 2 years. Muscular atrophy id no joke.
BrowneePoints: Quiddities: the inherent nature or essence of someone, most often used in "his quirks and quiddities"
sounderfan84: square-enix took ideas from star wars when they did developed
Spacecarl: the theme music sometimes doesn't help
TXC2: BrowneePoints huh, ok then
sounderfan84: developed ff12*
sounderfan84: they actually admit that
BrowneePoints: sorry quiddities can be used for objects as well
LordManiMani: yeah, being fair FFIX is the one that directly quotes Phantom Menace in its finale
PaintingWithFariss: Penelo is C3PO, change my mind
Genie_M: they use similar, century old tropes
northos: I would argue the plot has more than a few similarities, but you're definitely right that it's an oversimplification
Dalrint: Gotta find a key. I mean fuse
malsareus: fusion HA!
thirsty_kitteh: a fuse? is that like a key?
JDMan94: Square was always pretty influenced by Star Wars. I mean... Biggs and Wedge.
Gaz_L: i mean, we're clearly gonna be in a rebellion against an empire... it's not NOT Star Wars
TehAmelie: i mean Star Wars is so perfectly generic its story and characters are applicable to more or less everything
Thandres: do you have a licence for the fuse though? :P
GapFiller: yr might as well say the Transformers Movie is A New Hope copy
GapFiller: which tbf people do
prince_infidel: It's Star Wars to the same extent as Lord of the Rings is Star Wars
p_johnston: I mean I wouldn't be surprised if Han Solo was somewhere in the inspiration for Balthier but he's probably just one of the influences.
incslayer: this is clearly a alt-fic of The Nanny Balthier is Maxwell Fran is well Fran and Vaan is C.C.
BrowneePoints: and honestly, if you're gonna take a story to adapt and expound on for your fantasy game, Star Wars is a good on
BrowneePoints: one
LadyLockwood92: There's a difference between being inspired by something and stealing something.
Ravynn: Lots of things are influenced by star wars. Lots of things are influenced by looooots of things.
malsareus: star wars is just the Arturian legend
TehAmelie: this game came out when the prequel trilogy was in full swing, that's all
JDMan94: First major thing: there are no stars
IviaRelle: And, there are archetypes that predate Star Wars.
LordManiMani: lolol
TXC2: it's star wars in that they're both hero with a thousand faces
plummeting_sloth: I mean, it's got wars sure, but where's the stars?
Gaz_L: to shreds you say?
andysoo89: In the end, everything is just a copy of lotr
warboss5: Apparently they were cribbing from Futurama as well
cassaclyzm: Visual design ain't narrative design
KartoffelKaiser: @plummeting_sloth those are coming later SeriousSloth
GhassanPL: I mean, there are similarities in themes and story, but Star Wars is a very broad theme to take from :) Themes of rebellion and outcasts and antiheroes and such are pretty universal
Manae: Tube fuse--nah, just slugging it
Gaz_L: i hope the new eps of Futurama will be good, but know they won't be
GapFiller: nalvThink FFXII or Transformers which is more of a Star Wars ripoff? Kappa
KartoffelKaiser: cause the charge is 💯💯💯
TehAmelie: i mean Final Fantasy never produced anything like the Jar Jar tongue sucking lollipop https://i.imgur.com/gn02ds1.jpg
Didero: "We made a charge meter and we're damn well gonna keep using it"
p_johnston: also the fact that Balthier is a sky pirate with a ship comes up like... Twice? It's really not that integral.
warboss5: Oh, cool, its Pitch Black now too
LordShadner: FNAF?! Kappa
incslayer: @warboss5 does that mean if we pay someone 20Menthol Cools we can get some cool eyes?
GhassanPL: Woof, Doctor Who flashbacks
Shadowsoflife: count the shadows
Narcuru: are you my mummy?
Leonhart321: We should go, Doctor

GhassanPL: The Vashta Nerada is coming
Invitare: Kid Icarus Uprising still has the best Mimics in gaming, don't @ me
SpoopsAHoy: Damn I was not expecting a reference like that.
nyperold: Keep an eye on your coffee cups.
Firewhiskers: Zombies are great to chain tho
A_Dub888: Zamble!!
plummeting_sloth: nicely sticking it
Mischievous_Catgeist: remember use the pointy end to stick it to them
KartoffelKaiser: geez all these characters on the screen and the spider thing is the one sucking something dry? 😔
beowuuf: cue edited video
Prop_PT: wait this game is just Dr Who! Kappa
incslayer: and doctor who came out in 1963
malsareus: Well DR Who isn't exactly new
TheDefiledPrince: The game came out 2006?! cirSlain
TXC2: and Doctor who came back in 2005, which is wild to me
GTea30: fun fact: if you skip that cutscene, you have more charge to start with
Firewhiskers: @Prop_PT Balthier could be a Doctor based on his outfit
p_johnston: Could we get Basch like...a club or something at least?
LadyLockwood92: Yeah, but that line is from NuWho. Specifically like...season 4?
KevinTheShark: Blimey. They're worse than those sharks that were eating the internet cables a while ago
Dalrint: Besides, saying something is inspired by star wars is like saying it's inspired by fairy tales. Star wars is a *very* archtypical story.
DueRecompense: can you give basch a weapon?
Firewhiskers: What can you steal from the big mimics?
shurtal: Battery Mimic uses Assault!
LadyLockwood92: Yeah, Star Wars is very much 'Heroes Journey' but in space.
TXC2: "inspired by star wars" = this was made after 1977 :p
LordManiMani: I'm just saying, with minimal spoilers, there's a very big superweapon in this game's finale
GapFiller: LadyLockwood92 which given the timeline can just as easily mean DrWho nicked it from this
RynoLaw: Someone may have pointed this out, but I believe that was the same VA as Devrim Kay from Destiny 2

TehAmelie: watch Pootie Tang and then watch Star Wars episode 4, that's my suggestion
Gaz_L: munny
Prop_PT: 60 hume monies
incslayer: what are you saying that the young man with the special weapon who gets taught by a old wise wizard and is accompanied by a princess a rogue and a big guy on a quest to defeat the big evil is a oft repeated story?
beowuuf: this game is actually inspired by the hidden fortress.... expecially the spaceships Kappa
SacrificialToast: but it's so tingly
shurtal: i love that the optimal thing to do with guest characters is cast berserk on them
EC_as_That: Not that you really should anyway, given that you don't know when they leave your party
nyperold: Such revolting behavior.
plummeting_sloth: you cannot taste it, it's electric! (boogywoogywoogy)
TheDefiledPrince: cirLaugh
Didero: Basch had it coming
Carlioo: that's fine, vaan wants him to die anyway
northos: a box of scraps? we are in a cave...
Firewhiskers: @incslayer What's that about Journey to the West? (I know, I know...)
GDwarble: Basch dies, triumphant music plays
p_johnston: You mean the half naked man who is trying to beat things to death with his fists isn't doing well? Le gasp!
Snowcookies: DPS adjust
Leonhart321: Hold me closer Tiny Mimic
HailtheRNG: honestly, I don't remember this FF AT ALL. I hated 13, but I remember parts of it.
p_johnston: I'm dissapointed none of these chests have actually just been mimics.
dosbilliam: Suddenly, vendor trash.
Kwah11: hold me closer tiny mimiiiic
Didero: But we already get into so many scraps...
TehAmelie: remember FF8? the most useless, lrrHAm brained party member may be the one with the best ability to punch stuff into submission
DueRecompense: LUL
incslayer: hey i got that reference
NightValien28: "current"
SpleenLord: My brain went to the same place
niccus: right, current references
warboss5: Be sure to keep the Pile of Iron Scraps away from the Knot of Rust or you'll just end up with two Knots
LadyLockwood92: Gotta say, this makes pretty good background noise while I farm Rune Arcs in Elden Ring
TehAmelie: lrrHAM
Gekyouryuu: I had the same thought, Graham
TXC2: that movie is now 15 years old :p
northos: look, as long as they keep making MCU movies (i.e. forever) Iron Man will stay relevant
SalmirAeon: Map?! Helps to have one of those
samu_btdp1985: is that Basch the traitor who totally killed our brother
thirsty_kitteh: There is one way to show you're down with the kids and up-to-date with references: doing a TikTok dance :P
LadyLockwood92: Wait, our references are meant to be current? Ah nuts...
Mischievous_Catgeist: so a rock?
LadyLockwood92: @samu_btdp1985 Yup
DueRecompense: ^^
Gaz_L: now we just need a fire, water, wind and heart stone
TXC2: bless you
GhostValv: salud
LordZarano: !findquote map
LRRbot: Quote #2355: "I can't leave the way I came in: there's a badly-mapped texture up there." —Graham [2016-04-20]
Leonhart321: Bless you
reddog13gaming: Bless you
ggodopaste: they're grenades, I think
inetro: Arent they throwables?
Didero: Our references have to be current? Watt?! Ohm no! Volt-ever will we do?
incslayer: @Gaz_L and then we can summon Captain Planet! hes our Hero gonna bring pollution down to zero
malsareus: I thought wind stones we're to help you pass gas
DanTheMediocre: as opposed to all those eartless stones out there...
Prop_PT: it smells the lightning
noisyblizzard: but hes hungry
MantisMind: no gambits yet?
HailtheRNG: wait, isn't this the FF where you had to specifically NOT open certain chests in order to get one of the ultimate weapons?
Gaz_L: the lorge lad
MantisMind: @HailtheRNG yes the original
Firewhiskers: @HailtheRNG Not this version
TXC2: HailtheRNG yeap, they've taken that out in this remaster
HailtheRNG: oh thank god
Spacecarl: And according to chat one of those chests was opened already, so thats fun
MantisMind: i had everything in this game except that spear lol
BrowneePoints: yea...it was like the Mouse thing in King's Quest
KartoffelKaiser: There was also another way to get the Zodiac Spear in the original game it was just a *deeply* rare different other chest
Gekyouryuu: understandably
Leonhart321: Instead, we now have new weapons that have near impossible and not referenced ultimate weapons to get cough cough Steitengrat
darko118: I used the primer so it was no big deal to me
DueRecompense: Spear is nothing compared to Seitengrat
Nenluen: i ended up not opening any chests in the game because of that spear
Prop_PT: otherwise it had a 0.01% chance to spawn in that area (which could be grinded due to chest respawn) but...eeesh
northos: this isn't even all of it!
Seth_Erickson: I like how loud the tapping of their feet is LUL
EC_as_That: Hurray for 2x speed
HailtheRNG: man, I just remembered the site gamefaqs.com
MrAyeAxe: the diamond armlet stuff is also silly, generates a separate loot table for every chest in the game and you've no way of knowing which table has the unique items
Vanbael: at least nobody's using the rails
A_Dub888: tuptuptuptuptuptup
HailtheRNG: that triggered something in my brain
LadyLockwood92: 'Aww...I wanted a peanut!'
cuttlefishman: Being wanted for treason doesn't preclude selling stuff
MantisMind: he was in the bathroom
noSmokeFire: patch notes: *Vaan no longer wanted for treason. *Vaan is now wanted for unlicensed earth stone dealing
TXC2: LadyLockwood92 $7 could...possibly buy peanuts, who knows with inflation
Gekyouryuu: battery mimic 5 minutes late with bread in its mouth
Prop_PT: Holy Grail Running meme, but the mimic
LadyLockwood92: @TXC2 Well, inflation aside it can't buy as many as $20...
TXC2: LadyLockwood92 indeed
cuttlefishman: Princely charge
GhostValv: tqsSmug
Dalrint: Don't kink shame graham
noisyblizzard: stripEm
micalovits: I mean, we did say EVERYONE is h hot sooo...
plummeting_sloth: You wouldn't steal a kiss, Vaan
jonnyfever262: Hey yuck Vaan's yum
NightValien28: it could be a prince, you don't know until you kiss them all
SpleenLord: How do you know?
Didero: How do you know which frogs are magic if you don't kiss all of them, Graham?
SalmirAeon: it was a Mimic formally known as...
LadyLockwood92: Just because it *told* you it was a prince, doesn't mean it's true.
Prop_PT: cure froge?
Vanbael: Not going to judge what Vaan is into
Prop_PT: maiden kiss is froge
EC_as_That: Oh that is fun
NightValien28: a reference as current as graham's
CptMurphey: I love rod
p_johnston: Rod and battle harness? Sounds kinky.
noSmokeFire: wait. if FF12 is copying from Star Wars, does that make Fran Chewie?
TXC2: "it's an inanimate carbon rod!"
northos: harness is real good
Seagulyus: @noSmokeFire yes, actually
LadyLockwood92: Rod is presumably for Black Mage.
noSmokeFire: Chewbacca in battle heels...
Dalrint: auto-counter is really annoying when you want to steal
accountmadeforants: If gamers can sell bathwater, princes can sell kisses.
LadyLockwood92: I don't think so, you'd be looking at Knight or the Warrior equivalent for Heaby.
LadyLockwood92: Heavy*
EC_as_That: I don't think you are in the jobs that use heavy armor
Seagulyus: I was about to ask if this was TZA when I saw the licenses
KartoffelKaiser: yeah, it's in addition
northos: in addition I'm pretty sure
Leonhart321: Addition IIRC
northos: Vaan tank
SerGarretCameron: I remember it being addition, but it cranks your damage up considerably. Which is fine, unless you need to steal or something.
Firewhiskers: Measures are weird weapons that inflict status effects
EC_as_That: They are abilities... I think?
KartoffelKaiser: Measures are a super weird weapon that give *buffs* on hit, so you whack your buddies with them
noisyblizzard: i think in me ff12 playtrough i never equip one of those
noisyblizzard: my
Seagulyus: measures are the weirdest weapons in FF. its literally measurement tools
SpleenLord: A rich pocket of HP
LordZarano: We're gonna be so accesorized
MantisMind: oh yeah i use the one that hits berzerk lol
raulghoulia: frans's board looks like a bow
northos: also fun note, each job's license board is roughly shaped like its icon
GDwarble: Unless you want to take on the superboss
EC_as_That: 1 Gil! What a steal.
ggodopaste: I got stuck in this dungeon on release because I was underleveled
Firewhiskers: Quad damage though
p_johnston: The main story you can mostly do without grinding.
Ravynn: Ludicrous speeeeed
GDwarble: But the superboss would take, like, an entire stream just to itself, at least
northos: Yiazmat stream when :)
Didero: If you set your Gambits correctly, you won't even have to play Kappa
Dalrint: Did you just steal a katana off that bat?
LadyLockwood92: Yeah, it's been fine so far.
noSmokeFire: can we briefly see quad speed as a treat
p_johnston: The hunts however are a different story.
plummeting_sloth: 1 gil? You stole that guys parking meter money
incslayer: we should turn on quad speed once just for kicks
MantisMind: this part is cool
NightValien28: if this is the PC HD remaster, there I think there's a 9999 damage cheat as well as invincibility
Prop_PT: you COULD set up the auto grind gambits and just have 1 all chatting stream with the game playing itself
Prop_PT: at 4x speel LUL
Gekyouryuu: we can turn on quad speed by setting the replay to double speed
BigDaddyBland87: Maybe it was just my playthrough but this game was grind hell for me
Seagulyus: @BigDaddyBland87 this game doesn't require grinding unless you do the extra content
KevinTheShark: Honestly the speed works great. And then on the YouTube VODs we can just play it at half, or even quarter speed if we really want
p_johnston: isn't the flan acidic? Should Basch be touching it with bare hands?
Rayn3Cl0ud: it's about sending a message
Leonhart321: Unless we're going for certain bosses in the game, we should be grind neutral this run
Firewhiskers: Who was doing zero damage to the flan?
Didero: But that means you have to talk faster if you speed up the game, Graham
Vanbael: kind of half tempted to do that now
GhostValv: also double the Graham for those parts :)
plummeting_sloth: and you could get it to quad speed by doubling speed on the double speed sections
TheMandrew: new shirt, "quick enough to watch at half speed"
noSmokeFire: half speed on youtube = regular speed Vaan and drunk Graham
richard_ermen: Imagine being someone who watches this on 2x speed on YT.
DanTheMediocre: the flan multihits sound like physics objects freaking it in source engine
Snowcookies: Or if you want Graham to play at quad speed Kappa
rabbitgta: but then your voice sounds funny
TXC2: so we slowly turn Graham into a Sludge album ?
KartoffelKaiser: yeah Blind and Silence stick around even when you're KO'd
Mattmitchell45: Status effects are king in this game
MantisMind: cure balthier
p_johnston: Balthier seems to be having a rough time.
northos: yeaaah, a lot of statuses stay through death. which is a REAL PAIN with the one that reduces your max hp
incslayer: Silly Graham why would being ressurected cure blindness?
Pteraspidomorphi: yah
plummeting_sloth: Look, Jesus raised the dead AND cured the blind. He didn't do both at the same time. That'd be showing up
plummeting_sloth: off
northos: zambie!
TXC2: plummeting_sloth and even then Jesus still had that stab wound when he came back
richard_ermen: Zombie? Of the Dungeon-Zombies? I knew his uncle, Zombie of the Zombie-Zombies!
EC_as_That: Lovely
richard_ermen: He still owes me money.
maelstrom64: I remember I always played this with my first gambit for Vaan as "steal from any enemy w/ HP = 100%"
froginajar: Little trick I remembered from this game - if you get to the max-chain with the zombles, they end up dropping stuff that sells incredibly well if you need the gil.
raulghoulia: looking forward to Basch, Black Mage
corefluxx: Out of Bbombs?
MantisMind: no magic D:
GTea30: Fran does come with Fire and Cure for free
Mischievous_Catgeist: got up for 5 minutes to make popcorn come back to my cat completely laying on my keyboard with my internet history pulled up
EC_as_That: Vaan needs a headguard. with all the being knocked out he enjoys
Didero: When it says '50 exp, 1 LP' on enemy defeat, does every character get that, or do they share?
Snowcookies: just get more party members
p_johnston: Or, Or, Or.... Entire game no magic challenge mode.
GTea30: @Didero Everyone in the fight gets the EXP, everyone in the party gets the LP
Didero: @Didero Generous, thanks
Vlanoik subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 61 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Vlanoik! (Today's storm count: 32)
UncannyJimjams: hang on, our homie Basch is still alive??
KartoffelKaiser: @UncannyJimjams Sure is!
Seagulyus: @UncannyJimjams yeah, dont know how much they've said about it so mum's the word
Didero: @UncannyJimjams Turns out he's been in a dungeon for these two years
TXC2: if you call that living
UncannyJimjams: Dang, you step away from the stream for 5 minutes!
LadyLockwood92: He's a lot more emaciated and bearded than he used to be.
plummeting_sloth: At the moment, he seems to be a collendar in which potions flow out
Seagulyus: @LadyLockwood92 and yet, still more jacked than most humans
KevinTheShark: What!? Your health doesn't reset on level up? An outrage
LadyLockwood92: @LadyLockwood92 Everyone gets more jacked in prison.
GTea30: Fran also has cure!
froginajar: Might be worth setting up a gambit with Fran's Cure
KartoffelKaiser: If you want some magic, IIRC Fran knows some regardless of what her job is
Seagulyus: @KevinTheShark hasn't in FF in a long time. played 2/3 recently, and level ups only give max hp, not current
corefluxx: Like a rebel Yell
jimsmithkka: bluegras?
KevinTheShark: @seagulyus That's incredibly frustrating NGL. I always thought it as like an extra win-bonus
p_johnston: This is a really long segment of game to go with no shop. Wasn't the last one before breaking into the palace?
cuttlefishman: Can evolve our pokemon now
JDMan94: Yooooo
corefluxx: Yummy... Mashed Mage....
KartoffelKaiser: @p_johnston that fellow who gave us the fuse can sell us stuff
micalovits: Mash! That! Mage!
DueRecompense: mashed flan sounds better
northos: it's only the one dagger, actually
MantisMind: theres a shop in the mine if i remember...
Firewhiskers: Silences enemies
p_johnston: Ok that's not to bad then.
JDMan94: and it can silenve
BigDaddyBland87: Can he dual wield?
LadyLockwood92: Better than a kick in the teeth
JDMan94: silence*
KartoffelKaiser: @BigDaddyBland87 no dual wielding in this game
DueRecompense: shields
SerGarretCameron: shields and ammo, yeah.
BlueMagnusStormCrow: Shields and ammo
LordShadner: shields or ammo
micalovits: Boy, this is a long dungeon... I could see people just getting stuck here from not having enough potions
KartoffelKaiser: correct
MantisMind: rip
SpacePotato01: aggro all of the things
Seagulyus: yeah I lightly remembered it but its been awhile
noisyblizzard: looks like the bombs are neutral
MantisMind: friendly Pog
plummeting_sloth: well, on your way mr burning orb
KartoffelKaiser: yeah just don't cast magic near them, which i think won't be a problem for this party
LordZarano: Speedruns of this game must be ridiculous on 4x the whole time
EC_as_That: A friendly Bomb?
KartoffelKaiser: @LordZarano yeah the any% category for this game, between the overpowered invisible bow and the x4 speed is kind of heinous
GTea30: Yes :P
incslayer: yes
p_johnston: Does fran also have black magic?
Leonhart321: Yes and yes
GTea30: Fran also has Fire
froginajar: Fran has Cure and Fire. :)
GTea30: You can check the abilities from the status menu
BlueMagnusStormCrow: Fran also has fire
richard_ermen: Why has Fran two attack orders?
p_johnston: welp that would have been nice to know about 12 flans ago.
DueRecompense: wonder what the flan are weak to
Seagulyus: @LordZarano being able to RNG manipulate whatever you want is pretty crazy as well
northos: how many bontoons is a flan?
samu_btdp1985: are we allowed to advise? @loadingreadyrun
Snowcookies: we're learning
KevinTheShark: This running is just toe tappingly excellent 👌
thirsty_kitteh: richard_ermen not sure on the intention, but it does allow her to attack something before Vaan sees it
GTea30: @richard_ermen Two attack orders are actually fairly useful, due to how the priority system works. Especially if you're changing party leaders often
AugmentingPath: flan is my second favorite time unit, after the bontoon
TXC2: !heychat
LRRbot: Please ONLY offer advice when the streamer uses the phrase "Hey, chat...". Let them try to learn the game on their own, even if it means they miss a thing or two.
incslayer: sword GET
GhostValv: best laid flans and all that
plummeting_sloth: Vaan: oh, sorry that was me
samu_btdp1985: ok cheers
UponMyOath: Captain Traitor
UponMyOath: Split the difference
raulghoulia: I beat this game two years ago during the pandini but watching you play makes me very much want to revisit
Leonhart321: Considering Bach has been in a cage for years, I don't think it's the Mist that reeks
Didero: "Hey, what happened to the person I stabbed?"
BrowneePoints: So the eyes are a LIL samey on everyone
LadyLockwood92: "I only stabbed him..."
KartoffelKaiser: time for this game to become a soap opera PogChamp
AugmentingPath: so, should we believe Ondore's stories?
Metric_Furlong: an unreliable narrator? in a Final Fantasy game?
BrowneePoints: but Basch make my heart flutter *fans self*
LadyLockwood92: D:
BigDaddyBland87: Basch you say that every time you are accused of treason
p_johnston: So does this plan seem very convoluted and unnecessary to anyone else?
MantisMind: the evil twin D:
InquisitorGaia: do reliable narrators exist?
Didero: Wait, so Basch has a twin?
LadyLockwood92: @BrowneePoints Yeah, Basch is pretty dreamy.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @p_johnston sounds like final fantasy!
KartoffelKaiser: different accent, slightly different face
SerGarretCameron: and an extra little beauty mark.
baskwalla: Basch and Beach
KartoffelKaiser: game does a good job of foreshadowing this
Seagulyus: @p_johnston more convenient than convoluted
northos: shhhhhh
LadyLockwood92: Vossler?
Juliamon: his twin, Lomb
richard_ermen: A TWIN?! Great Scott, what is this, some sort of faux-shakespearan play?!....wait...
Leonhart321: Believe in the brother who believed in you
BrowneePoints: @Juliamon BOOOOO
plummeting_sloth: believe in the me that believes in your brother that believes in your that believed in me
MantisMind: i love balthier lol
BlueMagnusStormCrow: It's a rather unbelievable story to be fair.
Bruceski: "Your brother fought to the last, before I hilled him. I mean my brother killed him. Not my fault."
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Oh Saladin!
BrowneePoints: I cannot believe you just made a Bausch & Lomb pun Juliamon
UponMyOath: Have we learned Balthier's stake in all this yet?
Metric_Furlong: a ridiculous story? in a final fantasy game? Kappa
Didero: Are there any videogames with a non-ridiculous story?
MarsIsDead: Damn, I am in the middle of Vault Hunters, but now I really want to boot up my PS2 and play this again
Prop_PT: Bash has sword now, nothing can stop him
plummeting_sloth: I mean, in terms of FF stories it's utterly average, but sadly Vaan does not have that kind of meta knowledge
TXC2: Final Fantasy? being ridiculous? the devil you say
Mattmitchell45: Reks, much like Zack, is the true emotional core of this FF game
Mortimew: FInal Fantasy with a ridiculous story? Unheard of!
northos: skelemans
SerGarretCameron: battery mimics are draining your power.
DueRecompense: @Didero Death Stranding
p_johnston: so the plan was to defeat the kingdom in battle, force them to a peace treaty, kill the king at said peace treaty while blaming the head knight who's twin brother works for you leaving only one heavily wounded witness.
Didero: @Didero Hah!
BlueMechanic: if you don't have Rest In Peace on your tombstone you're automatically drafted into the skeleon war
Invitare: oh Graham
Spacecarl: The very first Final Fantasy game involved a time loop, then they progressed from there.
UponMyOath: @p_johnston And also capturing the guy you're scapegoating so that you can pretend to execute him
KartoffelKaiser: @p_johnston more or less, though *whose* plan that is is something we haven't found out yet
Invitare: Umbreon evolves at night when its happiness is maxed
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Graham her name is Fran and she doesn’t evolve
Invitare: no stones involved
Vanbael: You wish Umbreon evolves like that
KartoffelKaiser: there are multiple actors at play here, with slightly different motivations
UponMyOath: I kind of don't understand why Basch is still alive?
northos: @p_johnston I think it's essentially theater for the Imperial populace. the empire is ostensibly a Republic, so this lets them occupy the territory with more justification
Didero: 'Hey Chat' rules are in effect?
Sethalidos: !heychat
LRRbot: Please ONLY offer advice when the streamer uses the phrase "Hey, chat...". Let them try to learn the game on their own, even if it means they miss a thing or two.
Leonhart321: Where's the fun in that though?
DueRecompense: someone did say that
TXC2: Didero assume they are until proven otherwise
KartoffelKaiser: @UponMyOath We don't know why Basch wasn't executed yet, but we know that he was announced as having been executed for some reason
nuthouse01: we have a some-tolerance policy about backseating ;)
Didero: If you're not sure if Graham wants a hint, ask before giving it
samu_btdp1985: so if brickwall advise?
p_johnston: So in case it was missed the guy at the beginning of this section who told you about power is a merchant.
UponMyOath: @KartoffelKaiser Yeah, that second part I remember
p_johnston: In case you want more potions.
Bruceski: If you start looking into how conquering emperires historically tried to blunt revolutionary attempts, this is right there among them.
UponMyOath: Honestly, as someone who doesn't FF at all, I'm glad G's doing another play it forward
richard_ermen: I wonder if the entire combat system was kind of a staple run for what they'd later use for 15.
UponMyOath: I can see the appeal, even if they ain't for me
Didero: Cherry staff? Do they have more flavours?
DueRecompense: Blue Raspberry and Watermelon
Didero: A capella? There's songs?
richard_ermen: you obtained....singing?
northos: a capella? is this a musical now?
Prop_PT: is Capella a new GUN
Prop_PT: ?
northos: (yes it's a gun)
MantisMind: check new weapons
ElektroTal: i see your face is returning to normal too
Mortimew: @Didero Pineapple staff gives regen
corefluxx: You have my slightly better weapon... And my actually a sword
richard_ermen: I love how looting a skeleton gives you a single bone instead of "a skeleton" xD
ElektroTal: graham sans beard was weird, lol
Seagulyus: Capella is Italian for Hat so why is it a gun??
richard_ermen: Thats so MMOesque.
Didero: I don't think I like JRPGs, but I do like Graham, LRR streams, and Chat, so I'm enjoying myself
richard_ermen: @Seagulyus Because Japan
MarsIsDead: Graham love GUN
Leonhart321: I always like being able to catch the LRR crew live, and playing a FF is just a bonus
MantisMind: farming skeletons was good
DueRecompense: @Seagulyus they're named after stars
nuthouse01: skeleton butts?
AugmentingPath: what happens if we run out of charge?
p_johnston: It's nice to actually catch this one live. The FF7 Play through I had to get via vods.
ElektroTal: wait, i was away for an hour, when did ff12 add an action part?
KartoffelKaiser: it was that chest near the frogs
raging808pyro: hey sir, i just wanna say that i enjoy LRR content, i was wondering any chance youd be up to playing FF8, also my name is Ryan and i have tweeted you about mtg cube and was wondering if you got around to see it
ElektroTal: Streets of New Capella
Seagulyus: @Seagulyus ahhhhh stars makes sense. I knew there was Regulus but I put that together
noisyblizzard: @AugmentingPath more enemies spawn like those skellys
AugmentingPath: noisyblizzard thanks
incslayer: no no Graham he got that gun because he signed up for the wallmart rewards point system so no background check needed
richard_ermen: Imagine getting an ingame-message saying "The gun license for this character was denied based on his past deeds"
LordShadner: still firing onions thou
plummeting_sloth: "We'll give you this gun, but you HAVE to promise to stop grunting so much when you reload it. It's even a breachloader now, it's not that hard"
TXC2: richard_ermen if only that worked IRL :p
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Isn’t Balthier a pirate? That’s going to be an extensive background check.
LordZarano: That's a 28.57% increase!
richard_ermen: If only
p_johnston: Is it boss fight time?
KartoffelKaiser: yeah, you can get different types of ammo that do elemental damage or inflict status effects
Shadowsoflife: it's a layered shot
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: this is the game that taught regular people how to pronounce “Fomalhaut”
Vorrenthalla: but onions are so strong in final fantasy. the strongest class in the series is onion knight
richard_ermen: I love how Vaan is walking first in line because he's the most expendable xD
micalovits: Thats a big mimic
BusTed: Cool framing shot.
Didero: Is this... bad?
Juliamon: oh, it's pretty!
JDMan94: Momma Mimic
LadyLockwood92: Oh! So that's why the chests look like that.
GDwarble: Ah, it's a mom mimic, or "momic", if you will
plummeting_sloth: Onion shot isn't too good, unless you have an allium allergy in the enemy, then it's a 1 shot kill
Vanbael: here we see the mother mimic give birth to more chests
MantisMind: mimic mama
incslayer: its nice that even the mimics celebrate pride
Leonhart321: Oh, that's pretty.......and horrifying
richard_ermen: Mother Mimic? Mother 'Ic?
LadyLockwood92: Gotta say, this game could definitely use Boss subtitles.
p_johnston: I assume Zombies start spawning if it gets dark.
Gekyouryuu: Momic
Seagulyus: @LadyLockwood92 reverse, the mimics copied the chests
northos: I love that the mimic queen is so large it could never really be mistaken for a chest
MarsIsDead: Breath of life is a good Magic card
richard_ermen: Breath of Life, the mediocre Zelda side-quel.
Didero: What do the tiny spiders even do?
Bruceski: And thus the main skill of gambits reveals itself: figuring out how to beat up what you want to beat up.
Seagulyus: Didero eat power
Didero: I assume Silence means the enemy can't use spells?
MantisMind: yes
KartoffelKaiser: @Didero sap the power, which can make other different adds spawn if the power gets low enough
Seagulyus: I forget if 0 power = game over but...
richard_ermen: Apparently making babies not spell but ability of queen
froginajar: @Didero Yes - lore-wise you need to declare the words of the spell to cast it
Andymonium: confirmed: miracle of birth NOT actually magical
Gekyouryuu: silent but still giving birth? must've gotten an epidural
plummeting_sloth: ooh, rare boss rust
AugmentingPath: high quality throwin' rock
richard_ermen: lol
Seagulyus: ah additional adds makes sense karto.
UponMyOath: I like how every once in a while Vaan's attack sound makes him sound like he's going "Bruh"
TheDefiledPrince: Bruh!
MantisMind: fase 2
Firewhiskers: Victory theme!
MantisMind: LETSGO
richard_ermen: It seems to me like she's making the entire place structurally unstable. Someone call for pest control!
RuiFaleiro: The boss could have multiple items to steal
Bruceski: Load bearing bosds!
Didero: @Seagulyus Just point the shield down, easy
incslayer: that was a load bearing mimic
BrowneePoints: you know, I just realized this came out the same year as Twilight Princess
UponMyOath: Those mid battle cut aways when they do a special move make it very hard to understand what's just happened
BrowneePoints: and they have very similar design
plummeting_sloth: well, the dungeon's power bill is going to be a lot better next month
deucetrik: I'm sure its fine
UponMyOath: Whatever you wanna believe G...
Leonhart321: Sure, why not
GhostValv: sure :)
KartoffelKaiser: I don't remember, but my name isn't Shirly Kappa
p_johnston: Pretty sure they all die there forgotten.
accountmadeforants: What dungeon?
TXC2: lets say yes and move on with our lives
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Ssssssssure Graham
UponMyOath: Everything Basch says is so melodramatic
BrowneePoints: I just realized the ff14 maps are based off these two
atinyspacemarine: so much room for activities
Firewhiskers: MMO level design
BrowneePoints: man so much of FF14's visual dna is based on 12 LUL
UponMyOath: I kind of love that so far you have a party of 4, and 3 of them think they're the main character, hah
TXC2: Big map
Didero: Was the Estersands where we had to kill that big wolf that killed us earlier?
Firewhiskers: That's for a later quest
Leonhart321: Oh yeah, there's that whole other bit isn't there
JDMan94: I imagine 7 Rebirth will work a lot like the maps for this game, except the areas are just BIGGER
incslayer: can we go pet the big dinosaur?
maelstrom64: what does the "zodiac age" version have that the regular game doesn't?
JDMan94: a job system
BWardly: @JDMan94 Oh I don't think 7 Rebirth will be fully open world
Andymonium: borb
SerGarretCameron: is basch still a guest? the icon went away, so not sure.
JDMan94: yeah, it wont be fully open at all
Seagulyus: @maelstrom64 the license system was overhauled to a job system. rebalancing of the game
GDwarble: Oh hey, one of these is used as a boss in FF14, kinda, that's neat
rabbitgta: chicken on a roll, I just call that lunch
plummeting_sloth: well, zodiacs for one
KartoffelKaiser: @maelstrom64 Different character progression system, a fast forward feature, and a "Trial Mode"
JDMan94: I feel like its gonna be like this game, as Max calls it, "wide linear"
MantisMind: is like the japanese version
KartoffelKaiser: ooh, we found a rare game!
corefluxx: Those look like a live Turducken
Juliamon: And they got rid of the dumb Zodiac Spear things
maelstrom64: sorry this was covered earlier! :(
plummeting_sloth: wow, this is tuff borb
Kiytan: There's also a 99 floor challenge tower thing (that has some great items in it)
ElektroTal: did original ff12 have the ability to attack people like this?
Seagulyus: @Juliamon in fact, you can get infinite amount of them!
KartoffelKaiser: LUL
Didero: "Nekhbet readies Mucus" ew gross
azidbern95: that might be a Hunt Mark
ElektroTal: not the gambits, but just out in the open
Decaped: what a cute wittle dinosaur
ElektroTal: i thought it went into a combat screen
KartoffelKaiser: @ElektroTal Yeah, that was always how 12 worked
MantisMind: the gambits are great imo
Seagulyus: @ElektroTal the gameplay is identical to the original
gualdhar: Final Fantasy logic, desert animals immune to fire. makes sense.
ElektroTal: ok. it'
Ravynn: This time, we use the IF statements!
ElektroTal: it's been like 20 years since i played it, lol
munocard: 12 also had rare spawns that were super strong and dropped really valuable items, if I remember right.
noSmokeFire: gambits: final fantasy 12 as Richard Garfield intended
Firewhiskers: Pupper :(
Vorrenthalla: I really like the gambit system and dragon age's take on it too
Seagulyus: 12 is basically a single player mmo tbh
KartoffelKaiser: yeah single player MMO is a good way to describe 12
MrAyeAxe: gambits that automate stuff like vaan's stealing and casting cures really smoothed the gameplay for me
Bruceski: The main change is the job system and some balancing around that. Old places to steal high-level weapons were changed for example.
ElektroTal: now i remember, yeah
gizmofreak1 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 28 months!
gizmofreak1: Glad to see you hopping back into Final Fantasy
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, gizmofreak1! (Today's storm count: 33)
MantisMind: @munocard yes thats great you have to kill all the enemys in one zone sometimes
AugmentingPath: no, Cetra were FF7
ElektroTal: i played this for a looong time, but never beat it
BrowneePoints: The internet was not kind to this game back then
SerGarretCameron: unless you want to get to the orange crystal, which I don't know if we can or not, but it might be worth.
Brozard: How dare they
BrowneePoints: but people have warmed up on 12 looking back
TXC2: it's kind of wild that FF7 and this game were only 9 years apart
ghyllnox: No, really?
Didero: Have you played FF14, Graham?
Pteraspidomorphi: Gamers? Opinions? Never
p_johnston: I do actually like 12, even liked it at the time.
balfizan: OMG I could only have imagined what modern twitter would have said about this game
samu_btdp1985: are fighting the dinos
TheDefiledPrince: This is one of the only FF games that I've never beaten
Scarbble: surely gamers didn't crap on a thing just for being different
They_Are_Alyx: Remarkably, the servers for FF11 are still up
Seagulyus: xii was not liked back then, but people have realized it could be a lot worse! it could've been base XIII...
p_johnston: That being said I think 12 is the last mainline game that I actually liked.
corefluxx: When have fans of any series not had opinions?
Leonhart321: I was one of those gamers of the day, and I think this has aged better than most FFs in the series these days
Serioavion: After 13 combat style, 12 looks great
LordManiMani: the internet also wasn't fond of FFX or FFX-2 or FFXIII...
Firewhiskers: I loved this game back in the day - beat it twice.
ghyllnox: Graham Stark, noted Turning Back enthusiast
BrowneePoints: actually opinions of this game got WAY better after the 13 games
Mangledpixel: IIRC 9, 10 and 11 were kinda planned out in advance, each trying out a different direction - 9 was trying to get back to the more cartooney roots, 10 was pushing things forward with voice acting and mocap, and 11 was trying out an MMO
JDMan94: The internet was basically not fond of anything that wasnt 6, 7, or 9
munocard: XIII's story is kind of impenetrable.
Seagulyus: X has gotten a rep as one of the better games now. X-2 has one of the best gameplays of the series if you can get past the aesthetic
accountmadeforants: Oh, I'm pretty sure the GameTrailers forums existed back then, and SomethingAwful was also full of opinions.
Dalrint: I'm one of those weirdos who loves 13
Bruceski: The game goes absurdly wide at one point, makes it easy toi wander around forgetting about the plot until you just stop playing.
Seagulyus: that's great Dalrint, dont let us make you dislike the game
LadyLockwood92: I'm pretty sure 11 was successful at being an MMO.
KartoffelKaiser: @Dalrint Same, that game's story is mad underrated
BrowneePoints: It's funny that people say 9 is cartoony when it has some of the darkest moments of the franchise
akiliyan: I got really put off by whatever they did to the voice files. It hurts me everytime
Metric_Furlong: BrowneePoints I think they mean the art style rather than the content
ancientspark: Meanwhile, 12 was just stuck in a lot of behind the scene drama
Firewhiskers: @Dalrint FF13 has a great story that's told terribly
munocard: A series of overcorrections
ylegm: plus the 2x makes the long slogs of travel much more bearabls
Mangledpixel: ah yeh, that tracks
BrowneePoints: speaking of which Chat
LordManiMani: there was a fun chart circulating from Ash Parrish showing a genealogy of sorts
ylegm: *bearable
Pteraspidomorphi: 9 is pretty good, I want a really good remaster of that
Seagulyus: 13's problem was hiding all its lore in a menu. I read it all once, it took me 3-4 hours straight of nothing but reading
BrowneePoints: if you've never played 9, play it
UponMyOath: @akiliyan What do you mean?
p_johnston: 9 is a great game.
BrowneePoints: 9 is, in my opinion, the objectively best game in the series
laundreydhull: they switched the title names due to early receptions?
corefluxx: FF IX... More fantasy, less gunblade
AkiraBalance27: @BrowneePoints agreed
CLEwizard: IX ended up being my most cherished, the story and characters are just so well done
p_johnston: I will also say 8 is a fun game to. Better then it gets credit for.
munocard: 9 is also kind of Journey to the West, right?
ylegm: 9 just never resonated with me
samu_btdp1985: 8 was my first but 9 is my favourite
ElektroTal: If you ever need a call in guest as you go, let me know, lol.
Mordin_Solus_Sings: I got 9 recently, but something just didn;t quite click. I need to give it another go.
TheDefiledPrince: 9 is my second fave FF game
BrowneePoints: like, 9 is what you get when FF is firing on all cylinders and is all Killer(very little) filler
inetro: Been playing 9 recently on Steam Deck, its lovely
saucemaster5000: played 9 for the first time at peak pandini and it was a treat
Serioavion: So you're saying we are getting a Play It Forward of 9 someday?
Seagulyus: yeah munocard I think that was at least partly an inspiration. but deviated quickly
ylegm: beat it, but I didn't really like any of the characters
akiliyan: @UponMyOath the voice tracks in this sounds really overly compressed, like super tinny, like theyre being played through an awful speaker
BigDaddyBland87: ??? says new area
LordManiMani: X with the biggest turnaround for me ,surpassing even IX now
Kiytan: I've only played a few hours of 13, but I did not understand the combat system/star rating thing at all
MantisMind: kill him
Didero: That NPC is just grumbling "killstealers..." now
ylegm: 13 had a 50 hour long 'tutorial'
MantisMind: i hate 13
Bruceski: X annoyed me first time I tried to play it, far too story-tunnel for my tastes. I was able to appreciate the story coming back to it later, though
LordManiMani: @kiytan I played up to the open section and still felt like I was either doing it wrong or missing something huge
p_johnston: X was 100% great until like the last section. Then it was... Fine.
Firewhiskers: @Kiytan The star rating and the points don't matter, literally
Leonhart321: The Paradigm System was a mes
BrowneePoints: you had an atb bar that certain actions took up more of than others
Leonhart321: *mess
Seagulyus: @Kiytan combat system was "hunker down with sentinels or push with ravagers. and never not be in one of those two sets
BrowneePoints: so like you could fire 4 times or slash 3 times
JDMan94: unitl it wasnt
munocard: 13 is very much a series of hallways
BloodnBullets: Morning folks! Time to play the game of WTF did I miss before heading to the vods!
LordManiMani: XIII told X 'hold my linear beer'
JDMan94: and when it wasnt, it threw me off
p_johnston: 13 was a movie for like the first 20 hours. Even the combat you didn't have to do anything.
GDwarble: 13 has so many interesting ideas in the setting and world building and everything and...did not tell its story very well at all
saucemaster5000: I remember my roommate in college coming in while I was playing 13, reading a book in my lap while holding forward and tapping x
SpleenLord: I managed to hate every character in FFXIII
ylegm: 13 also had fights you had to lose/win in very specific ways to progress
richard_ermen: 13 also had.....weird names. WOrds. Just...no.
ElektroTal: 13 was literally a coaching sim. you called plays for your team and they did it until you changed
BrowneePoints: yea the first 2/3s of 13 was hallway simulator
micalovits: Wow, these animals respawn fast
samu_btdp1985: I really enjoyed the Bounty hunting in FF12
ElektroTal: that said, 13 was gorgeous
plummeting_sloth: yeah, that was the origin of the "well after the first 100 hours, the game gets good" meme
odium_chlorite: my favourite 13 meme is the "Lightning Returns Final Fantasy 13" and it's Lightning taking her copy of 13-I to gamestop to get it traded
Greyah: 13 does have the objectively best Chocobo theme with Pulse de Chocobo though.
munocard: Yet somehow, they gave it TWO sequels
BrowneePoints: Granted, I think the overall story of 13 over the 3 games was neat, but it took THREE GAMES!
TXC2: also the story is MUCH better when you pretend one of the characters is a time traveller
CLEwizard: I think that's part of what i loved about IX, all the other games after that were corridors, which was a let down to the "open world" of the earlier games
TristalMTG: I haven't played 13, but I never really bought the corridor opinion - FF10's a corridor too, but that game's great.
noisyblizzard: coxFeedMe
LordManiMani: Lightning's Theme and Blinded by Light are all time greats though
odium_chlorite: @ElektroTal the frozen ocean is a treat
AkiraBalance27: @CLEwizard XV definitely wasnt a corridor though
CururuGuasu: 13-2 was legitimately good
KartoffelKaiser: @TXC2 i mean, in a manner of speaking two of the characters in 13 *are* time travelers
Metric_Furlong: munocard might be related to Lightning having been the game's character designer's waifu
froginajar: This theme though!
richard_ermen: @TristalMTG I felt that at the time the corridors of 13 were tooo clearly visible.
KartoffelKaiser: not counting the sequel with literal time travel
MantisMind: FF X is a masterpiece compare to XIII
Metric_Furlong: as in: "had a large banner of her hanging up in the office" waifu
ElektroTal: @TristalMTG the maps literally were straight lines. the level's treasure was always directly behind you. it was the most blatant hall sim ever
BrowneePoints: @TristalMTG I can't accurately stress how really accurate the linearity of the first 2/3rds of 13 is.
Mangledpixel: ooh, a penny!
LordManiMani: FFX is a masterpiece on its own 😎
Seagulyus: @TristalMTG 10 is a slight corridor, but the corridor sometimes was a semi large open area that rolled over itself, 13's maps are literally "from bottom to top"
Didero: Is this a trail of coins?
ylegm: 9 always felt really small insofar as there wasn't much to places
CLEwizard: @AkiraBalance27 i couldn't finish 15, i dont know why\
Leonhart321: Hi, I'm Suspicious Causeway
noSmokeFire: Mysterious Glint is a pretty good sci-fi name, tbh
DueRecompense: High potion? ill take 6.
ElektroTal: 15 pushed X out of top spot for my favorite ff of all time
BrowneePoints: The game DOES eventually open up, but it does so late enough in the game you can't even get excited by it
Mashamino: Mr. Ious Glint, at your service
Kit300: 15 was great until the super linear last 3rd.
TheDefiledPrince: one of their chocobos buries shiny things
MantisMind: 15 is the worst next to 13 imo
fir3wolfhhmd: @TristalMTG XIII has a main quest which is literally a race against time.
LordManiMani: hm? Glint by fantasy power metal band Fellowship?
p_johnston: 15 was...lets put it politely and say it wasn't a game for me.
AkiraBalance27: 15 was fine imo
Seagulyus: @BrowneePoints I'm a completionist and I skipped the open world area since I could, just to complete the game
KartoffelKaiser: tbh, I preferred the linear sections of 13 to the open part.
BigDaddyBland87: X is still favorite
saucemaster5000: not for its story, but for pure joy in doing dumb job things 5 is still one of my favs
Didero: I'm sure you can take a dinosaur
samu_btdp1985: is this the game with the giant murderous dinosaurs
KevinTheShark: Oh please, Mysterious Glint was my father's name, you can call be Meister Glint
Firewhiskers: Open the door get on the floor everybody pet the dinosaur
ElektroTal: any game that lets me fish, hunt, and cook, and then go explore to fish hunt and cook, is everything i want in life.
TXC2: samu_btdp1985 yes
mibukotaro: X-2 so good
azidbern95: you could take him, come on
Seagulyus: one of them samu_btdp1985
ancientspark: 15 was weird, but I think the Royal Edition kind of showed a lot more of what they were trying to go for
munocard: I feel like the Royal Edition bosses that got added to XV kind of ruin the last bit of the game.
Kit300: the open world part is great
Seagulyus: i wish 15 actually *finished* the story
micalovits: I think the wold was somewhere else right? This was where the tomato was?
LordManiMani: I want to get into 15 so hard. but you have to bend over backwards so much to get the story.
Metric_Furlong: Kathleen streamed some of FF15. she was... not overly fond of it
BrowneePoints: not counting 14, my top 3 are 9, 4 and 6, with 12 just in 4
Leonhart321: 13's big problem for me is that most FFs up until this point can be grinded out or have fun tricks that mean you can break the game super early. 13 FORCES you to only be so strong
odium_chlorite: I love how most of 15 is spent not playing 15
MantisMind: 15 is disgusting the gameplay is so bad i guess i rather play 13
Seagulyus: the book that has the intended ending was heartbreaking to realize they had a happy ending planned out and meddling destroyed it
ancientspark: Yeah, the "point" of 15 doesn't really get going until very late
LadyLockwood92: I haven't played 15, but I do really like having the car in 14.
ElektroTal: i just played it again recently, and the story, the car, the world, every part of it just sung to me again. that game may be for one person only, but i am that one
AkiraBalance27: What was your opinion on Remake? I know it wasnt completely what was promised, but i think it was a great game
kirbytronic: My favorite Final Fantasy is V. At least partially because it's a parody of other final fantasies
Greyah: I want 15 to either have a more focused story, or no story at all and just be a big sandbox in which you mess around.
fir3wolfhhmd: FFXV: we included a car and to make it not a waste we made the world giant and empty
DEATHlikescats: the Royale edition helped reduce that tedium and got to a very satisfying ending
odium_chlorite: I played 4 hours of 15, then a friend lent me Breath of the Wild. I have not played 15 since
Khepri85: One of my biggest complaints with XIV was that friendly fire was on, and because the AI was stupid it made magic practically unusable in combat
Leonhart321: 15 for me feels more like a road trip. I have to have a few hours for it, but I can enjoy it in bursts
Dalrint: 15 was the first final fantasy I got bored of and just stopped playing
Seth_Erickson: That's why I often fall out of jrpg's so much downtime where you aren't actively playing or doing story stuff.
ElektroTal: otherwise it's like 1, 4, 5
BrowneePoints: on the otherhand, the main crew of 15 are a likeable group of fellas, which stinks
samu_btdp1985: FF15 I loved the car radio but after an hour I realised I was listening to the ff8 soundtrack and not playing the game
Khepri85: Erh, XV, not XIV LUL
Ravynn: It was a lot more tedious on launch.
ancientspark: Yeah, by a lot
Didero: Wait, I just noticed there's no XP or LP numbers anymore when you defeat a wolf, are they too low-level?
DEATHlikescats: yeah it was worse before
AkiraBalance27: lmao
CelicaSpin: I love 15 and its soundtrack is one of my favorites
saucemaster5000: playing the 7 remake. There are... interesting choices to make that game longer
northos: yup
kirbytronic: Yes
ylegm: @Dalrint you made it through 13?
froginajar: X's linear structure makes sense given the story it was trying to tell
Bruceski: Friendly fire in XV didn't actually do much damage, but your party members sold it like they were center field at the World Cup.
lZodsl: ayo! ffxii is one of my favorite games
munocard: Royal Edition adds like 5 mega bosses to the end of the game, and makes the end an absolute slog IMO
ElektroTal: anyway, the best thing about having 15 final fantasies is that we can all agree that 2 is awful
ylegm: @Dalrint props
Didero: Where else is there to go?
KodeMage: hide in sewers?
Seagulyus: I just wish 15 had a normal health system instead of having current and current health take damage semi separetely
UponMyOath: Now, yes, FF15 was not great but, to note, it got an animated movie, and that was also bad
Kit300: it was more of a buddy adventure game than a ff game but had some good systems in it
BrowneePoints: @ElektroTal western 2 or actual 2?
plummeting_sloth: well, you just need to call out hey and go around them when they walk over
ancientspark: @ElektroTal Speak for yourself, I spent hours abusing training glitches in 2 as a kid :P
LordManiMani: @froginajar this man gets it. the world, the narrative, it fits together
fir3wolfhhmd: the biggest problem with XV I have is that you kinda skip the "growing together" part essential to JRPGs
Metric_Furlong: I had a similar reaction when I found that, after my attempt at playing FF14, that the contemporary version of the early-game had been patched to be *less* tedious than before
odium_chlorite: Graham, you're in the game?
Seth_Erickson: I've heard talk of 2 being fine but I would not know in the least
p_johnston: Before the gaurds?
MantisMind: GIGACHAD
ElektroTal: @BrowneePoints actual 2 2/4 is my fave
Seagulyus: ElektroTal I just played 2 and its eminently playable. I just got evade level to 10 and nothing could hurt me...
TristalMTG: Nah, I can totally defend 2. Just don't hit yourself and the character progression actually works.
munocard: Basch is really just gonna walk in there.
Leonhart321: Me on the other hand? I'm going to the bar
p_johnston: FF 2 is fun. Old but fun.
BrowneePoints: @ElektroTal yea for me it goes 9, 4, 6(and 12 right behind in 4th)
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: “only worry and these annoying kids”
ElektroTal: frankly, every one of them is nothing next to tactics, which is in my top 2 games all time
LordManiMani: shoutouts to this game putting the subtitles in the letterboxes
odium_chlorite: Vaan that's a rock
Ravynn: I'll just ask this stone - Vaan probably
samu_btdp1985: what accent is frans
BusTed: @p_johnston The multi-attacks are pretty satisfying.
Mashamino: "Kid, I'm a rock"
MurphEP: *looks at camera*
BigDaddyBland87: Magic stone says "ask again later"
Leonhart321: I dunno man. I'm just a rock
richard_ermen: Is Vaan talking to...the ROCK?!
Didero: Is... is Vaan asking a rock for its opinion?
p_johnston: Are you talking a rock Vaan?
richard_ermen: Vaan, I worry about you.
saucemaster5000: @BrowneePoints don't know if I agree on the order, but those are my top 3 as well
KartoffelKaiser: @richard_ermen He is! It makes sense later.
TXC2: samu_btdp1985 Icelandic apparently
Kit300: I hope 16 is good. Im kinda worried about the big monster movie style godzilla fights
Seth_Erickson: Look at this rock I told you it was the right call to get arrested
narset6691: they took your gun!
Mischievous_Catgeist: yeah lets impress a girl with a shiny rock
cassaclyzm: Vaan you okay bud? okay at least he realizes it
kirbytronic: And they will definitely never be heard from again
Seth_Erickson: smh and you didn't believe me
lZodsl: This game straight up is just a child playing spectator as governments tear themselves apart
LordManiMani: Penelo, Crystie the Crystal is JUST A ROCK
GapFiller: knowing its supposed to be Icelandic there IS a certain Bjorkishness abt Frans voice
DanTheMediocre: idunno kid im a rock eyyyy
GapFiller: but that just might be me
TXC2: silly Vaan, we don't ask rocks for advice, we ask a chat bot
froginajar: I adore Fran's portrayal in this game - the Icelandic accent was a great choice imho
hammith: I love the Moogle designs in this one
TXC2: !advice
LRRbot: Try being on fire.
Snowcookies: kupo!
Didero: @GapFiller Oh is that why she sounds so odd?
richard_ermen: Free TELEPORT?! I'mmm.....whaaaaat, they have openly available and cost-free matter-displacement services?!!?!
Seagulyus: maybe the rock is Bocci? I keep hearing about a Bocci the rock lately...
hamraffle: Hurdy, ma boi!
kirbytronic: Why is that not bad advice?
TheDefiledPrince: Moogles in this and tactics are the best
MantisMind: buy gambits
KartoffelKaiser: @richard_ermen yeah, moggles are good people
froginajar: @GapFiller - yes, it was a conscious decision by the localisation team, I remember
Seth_Erickson: public transit looking good in this town at least
Didero: The Moogling Moogle?
fir3wolfhhmd: @richard_ermen it lets you murder people for free, technically. What is not to like?
northos: @kirbytronic bold of you to assume those are separate commands Kappa
DEATHlikescats: @lzodsl feels appropriate, like a metaphor for the generation
richard_ermen: They have to be, apparently Moogles possess Kardashev-2 scale technology and energy O_O
richard_ermen: Great Scott.
Metric_Furlong: "what're ya sellin'?"
plummeting_sloth: please take me worthless stones "worthless?" un, forget I said that
Mangledpixel: loot loot!
MrVirite: don't you get special stuf from selling to thew bazaar?
DueRecompense: knickknacks
shtevie3: oooh! FFXII ! I never finished this one for a reason I cannot remember LUL
kirbytronic: The only ones that do anything are the teleport stones that you have this far along, I believe?
Snowcookies: don't ask where some of those things come from
noisyblizzard: i think now i remember
DueRecompense: Sell Everything
GapFiller: froginajar “we need this char to sound kinda alien lets make her sound like Bjork”
MrVirite: oh it's anywhere
GTea30: Motes do attacks
DueRecompense: (except Teleport stones)
noisyblizzard: you unlock stuff to buy buy selling certain stuff
Didero: This game needs a 'Sell All' button
Ryban89 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 28 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Ryban89! (Today's storm count: 34)
LordShadner: right as you sell stuff more goods can be bought
BusTed: Purple stuff..
p_johnston: Didn't this guys just say he doesn't buy random crap?
northos: I think if you hold, uh, I guess it would be Y + Up? it will jump to the max amount
kirbytronic: The Bazaar goods in this game got on my nerves a bit, but
Bruceski: There are some ways to be *maximally efficient* with a select few other items, but only in a "easier if you're trying to 100%" way.
incslayer: your selling fang? but if you go back to 12,000 BC you can trade Fang Petal Horn and Feather to get Ruby Gear for your party... ohh wait no thats Chrono trigger
cassaclyzm: soft windies just made me snort
KodeMage: they stay
Bruceski: They stay until bought
KartoffelKaiser: they stick around
DueRecompense: they stay
froginajar: they don't but they're worth getting
KartoffelKaiser: I'd recommend buying everything at the bazaar, yeah
Leonhart321: They stay until you buy them
kirbytronic: They stick around, they're generally just cheaper versions of things you can find in the store, and later in the game unique items
KodeMage: yeah, it's cheap, I just buy everything
Didero: What do you need a rifle for?
p_johnston: You can just sell the gun/bow back .
kirbytronic: No, Graham, they're gone forever now
Didero: Oh, I only just noticed the little stat comparison in the top right when you're buying, useful
KartoffelKaiser: Shields 1 never came out in the US Kappa
KodeMage: you don't have to do them in order, right?
Didero: Does getting Shields 2 also grant you Shields 1?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Shields one got taken off Netflix, licensing dispute
kirbytronic: If you want something to finish off the round, Vaan's probably enough to fight the doggo on his own
Seth_Erickson: Personally I think they phoned it in on Shields 3 and it should have stopped there.
incslayer: @KartoffelKaiser no it did but it was translated as "Magic Buckler"
KartoffelKaiser: @Didero No
Seagulyus: no Didero licenses are for specific items
Didero: ew
p_johnston: Do you wanna pick up potions also?
KartoffelKaiser: @incslayer OH rad, Magic Buckler was Shields 1?? I loved that game
Seagulyus: that said Didero, you general pass shields 1 to GET too shields 2
Seagulyus: generally*
noSmokeFire: Jojo's Bazaar Adventure
lannersong: Hey a taunt
kirbytronic: You have to finish hunts to get him to offer you other things
Mangledpixel: a nugget of purest green
Seagulyus: yeah green is the old gray magics. buffs and things that aren't white/black/time magic
Didero: i've got time Kappa
KeytarCat: ew, plot
Seagulyus: (time + green = FF6's gray)
Didero: Maybe the notice board has new targets?
incslayer: yea its 4hours until the next stream anyways
thirsty_kitteh: the moogling? to teleport? for free? into ffxiv? the award winning MMOROG??
kirbytronic: Well, it's not like there's anything on the channel, and if you make James late something's wrong :P
narset6691: moggling sounds like it violates some ordinance
beowuuf: thanks for the stream!
Snowcookies: thanks for the stream

Metric_Furlong: question mainly being whether it's time to start putting a ritual deck together, or go for one of the two remaining non-ritual decks left on my list
Metric_Furlong: should probably the ritual stuff, really, just so I've got something for every summoning method
