Didero: Yay, made it in time. Good evening!
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: whats up folks
koopabeach: hiiiiiiiiii
Didero: I've kind of forgotten what we did last time... As is tradition at this point
TXC2: hello Didero and I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo and koopabeach welcome
Didero: Oh right, we got the nethicite-cutting sword
koopabeach: thanks :o)
NightValien28: what up team
Didero: Hi TXC2 !
Earthenone: we spent a lot of time in a jelly staircase, and got the plot sword
TehAmelie: the sword of Angst and Anime
Didero: @TehAmelie "Do you have any idea how little that narrows it down?" :p
TehAmelie: lrrAWESOME
jessieimproved: Happy...Wednesday? At least there's FFXII
TXC2: hello NightValien28 and jessieimproved welcome
LadyLockwood92: Howdy folks ^^
TXC2: hello LadyLockwood92 welcome
nalha: less go
Didero: I already woke up tired, and then my workday ended with a complicated meeting running late, so watching Graham play Final Fantasy seems great right about now
Our_oBoros: Hi folks.
Spades_Slicc: Howdy
TXC2: hello Our_oBoros and Spades_Slicc welcome
RocknGrohlNerd: lets go gamers lrrSIG and hello everybody
TXC2: here we GO!
Shadowsoflife: lrrHEART
TXC2: hello RocknGrohlNerd welcome
Didero: Faram, Graham!
TXC2: Hello Graham
nalha: Hai Gram
TehAmelie: greetings
BrowneePoints: Look at this handsome man who brings the smiles to the people
SocraticMethod: Gasp
Didero: Seemed pretty busy for a still shrine
Our_oBoros: Hey G!
TehAmelie: or what a "Stilshrine" is
SocraticMethod: You don't know about Miriam?
TXC2: Jesus' mum ?
Earthenone: im guessing the nu mu statue at the front?
TemporallyAwry: Aww - the Couch didn't make it from LetsNope? PrideLaugh
TXC2: !patreon
LRRbot: 2648 patrons for a total of $20,625.56 per month.
nalha: i did this
TheThirdTail: @TehAmelie Well, it's still a shrine, if nothing else
SocraticMethod: Hey, this guy doesn't know about Miriam!
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: yup
BrowneePoints: Oh yea. it was chill couch vibes last night
raulghoulia: hello to all
AzureishDragoon: This stream is now officially further than I've gotten in XII, and I don't know if I want to stop watching to finish the game myself or not
TXC2: wow those lets nope bois really have no oversight :p
RocknGrohlNerd: @raulghoulia hello :)

beowuuf: lrrHORN
TXC2: hello beowuuf
SocraticMethod: For real though, it's a bit of background lore. Miriam is a god/goddess of swords and martial might. Shire was built long time ago.
BrowneePoints: oh man the music just made me excited for more Zelda info later today
Earthenone: fran has poison arrows
TheTekkieman: Fran has poison arrows, I think.
samu_btdp1985: I just got the notification for the stream 8 minutes delayed
rainreign7: fran
verzegnassicaio: @LoadingReadyRun sup graham how are you today? Hope you're doing great
LadyLockwood92: Funnily enough I've been rewatching G's playthrough of 7 for background noise.
Earthenone: and she insists on eating them in her victory pose
Didero: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 8:47.
Spluuga: it not perfect system
MrVirite: I have my google assistant do text to speach on the stream title
sporkraptor: yah! uh! hah!
samu_btdp1985: yeah nothing was sent till 2 minutes ago
Shadowsoflife: @samu_btdp1985 I seen notficication way later
Didero: That's why I have Chatty open at all times, because it shows Going Live notifications too, and with (almost) no delay
KilrenKrae: Love seeing your hair again G
TXC2: Good job on the Crapshot by the way Graham
Shadowsoflife: ^
djalternative: funny. I've also been watching G's 7 for background
raulghoulia: Again!?
sporkraptor: I'm waiting for my decaf coffee to come in so I can have coffee. migraines suck. >___< OH HI EVIL MAGITECH
RedNightmare7: Alright, who has a tracker stuck to their boot?
Diabore: lot of snitches in this game
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: oh crap, its the feds! Cheese it!
BigDaddyBland87: Ashe needs to find that tracker they put on her
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: sweet cutscene tho
TehAmelie: it occurs to me when we get an airship it won't be very special
TheTekkieman: And Empire says "Screw your Jagd, we're going to the top of the mountain."
sporkraptor: oh hi Garlemald waaaaait
sporkraptor: it kind of looks like a gun
Didero: Why can they fly through a Jagd again?
TXC2: the Alexander, here to kill zerg...wait wrong game
LadyLockwood92: @LoadingReadyRun I just got to the intro of Cait Sith and was struck with the idea of an in-universe episode of Defunctland, with Kevin pulling his hair out trying to figure out where Cait Sith disappeared to.
MurphEP: Fire?
TheAwkes: Approaching 40k levels of flying cathedral.
sporkraptor: usually means something's on fire
raulghoulia: "white smoke is coming from Paul's lab? He's elected a new taupe."
Diabore: usually fire
JakeKamas: Didero, Somehow the Nethacite lets them fly through it
malsareus: roasting marshmallows in 3, 2, 1
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: @raulghoulia That was maybe my favorite taupe joke
thirsty_kitteh: it can't become _more_ on fire!
sporkraptor: no reason to hurry XD
Didero: @JakeKamas "Magic", got it :p
Diabore: please graham, its a sewer
Didero: "I gotta go fight a flan in a basement" is always a good excuse
MrVirite: @LoadingReadyRun could you have a look at the sky pirates den under clan primer?
NightValien28: time critical, nah, let's go breed some chocobos
thirsty_kitteh: the basement flan's guards were level 38ish, for reference
LordShadner: you have magic now
mangoalias: hi graham!
Didero: Excuse you, it's a CLOACA
TheThirdTail: I think you didn't have any magic before?
TheShokara: Big story things happening? Time for a sidequest!
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: "i gotta go fight a flan i basement", you can just say you dont wanna come to my birthday party...
sporkraptor: mmmmm, basement flan
Earthenone: achevments
LordShadner: trohpies
sporkraptor: aw, it's your house!
rainreign7: achievments
TheThirdTail: ohhhh, i forgot about this screen
Diabore: @LoadingReadyRun graham please, its a sewer, not a basement
Didero: It's the sky pirate's den, says so right in the top left
LordManiMani: eeeee
LadyLockwood92: This is pretty cute.
RedNightmare7: Love this art!
TheThirdTail: pretty sure you can get useful items
TXC2: inside Cloud strife's memories...
mangoalias: ah yes, the theft reward
Didero: Good job attacking in a fighting game
LolCamAlpha: I love the happy bunnies SO MUCH
LolCamAlpha: little weird puffballs with feather ears
MrVirite: need to kill more for page 2
Earthenone: you need to kill X to fill pokedex
BigDaddyBland87: but yes the attack one is immediate. I'm 3 hours in and already got that cheevo
rainreign7: fill the codex
TheThirdTail: you get more lore, i think? i don't think there's any practical reason
SocraticMethod: @JakeKamas The magic system in ivalice runs on Mist/Mana. Jagd are places bereft of Mist, so Magic Crystals that make airships fly don't work there. Nethecite is sort of like Mana battery, where they store Mist and can use it later to run the Magic Crystals
Didero: Where to grind them, apparently
sporkraptor: you get a new list of things to kill probably
TheTekkieman: Lore happens!
Didero: @JakeKamas That makes a surprising amount of sense, thanks for the explanation!
LithelyUnshod: Apparently Ghis is voice by Mark Wing-Davey?
BrowneePoints: None. Gotta kill more Judge Pheasant and Judge Quail
nalha: "gotta kill em all" dont have the same ring to it
sporkraptor: go out into the desert and grind Judge Grises
LordManiMani: Zaphod Beeblebrox
beowuuf: zaphod beeblebrox
sporkraptor: that name is familiar... oh yeah, Zaphod! XD
BrowneePoints: ^
Genie_M: Zaphod in the old tv and radio series
LithelyUnshod: Hitchhiker's Guide. Beeblebrox
TXC2: which version of hitchhikers ?
beowuuf: radio show and tv series
TXC2: oh both? ok
LolCamAlpha: *does a double take* wait what???
BrowneePoints: Zaphod Ghislebrox
doubledbear: You should see how they wedge Yuffie into Crisis Core with Zack
LolCamAlpha: double agent what

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, TheHaCoFo! (Today's storm count: 4)
KevinTheShark: Honestly I loved Yuffies Moogle outfit, and was very annoyed when they had her take it off
LordManiMani: wasn't she always a spy
RedNightmare7: Bet he would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for those... well, you know
sporkraptor: that's been my final fantasy experience pretty much entirely tbh. wedging a bunch of weird stuff in
Earthenone: !flan
BrowneePoints: Either the sweetness or caramel topping
BrowneePoints: or the texture
nalha: Flan is delicious tho
KevinTheShark: That sounds like a good plan for a bad flan
doubledbear: I still need to finsih FF7R, i stopped just as i got to wall market
AugmentingPath: How A Flan Kicked My Ass (and what it taught me about Business Leadership)
TheMerricat: Afternoon chat! Afternoon Graham, are we to fantasy #13 yet?
TXC2: hello TheMerricat welcome
Shadowsoflife: o/
TehAmelie: as the fake history of the 1990s movie Braveheart tells us, we must unite the flans
Brozard: "WE'RE the REAL Anonymous!"
doubledbear: Are they trying to merge in Before Crisis maybe? that one was a flip phone game
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: Oh you said avalanche and i thought you were gonna talk about eh hogwarts story
SocraticMethod: People's AVALANCHE vs AVALACHE of People?
GDwarble: I feel like that was kinda implied in FF7R, there's a few mentions that Avalanche doesn't actually like the Midgar branch
malsareus: so grassroots there is a division structure
SocraticMethod: Were they complaining about splitters?
beowuuf: @TehAmelie who can forget when william wallce yelled free noms
raulghoulia: "what has Shinra ever done for us?"
MousseFilledCat: That’s actually a holdover from the Turk mobile game Before Crisis
Earthenone: i always assumed avalanche was just the handful of people at the bar who got drunk and decided to change the world
nalha: just doing random things because they wanted to is very Final Fantasy :P
malsareus: what does big avalanche sell?
BrowneePoints: in the pocket of Big Avalanche
GDwarble: Yeah, Avalanche as a small group would seem to make more sense
TXC2: they're not in the pocket of big avalanche
Diabore: fran doesnt seem to have that heal good power
SocraticMethod: Do you still have the anti-ice setup gear? Might be time to swap
Wicker_Guide: Yeah that's a carryover from the Turks prequel game that I think would have been better left by the wayside
malsareus: chat still has 1 braincell I see
rainreign7: G can i recommend you change cure to cura in your gambit so you spend less actions healing?
Didero: Is Ashe's Cure better than Fran's? That seems weird
Spluuga: @malsareus don't you shame the shared cell
malsareus: all them ice shields
Earthenone: i remember it aoe slowed you
Wicker_Guide: Bushi bizarrely has a ton of magick up
TXC2: kill you?
Diabore: killed you for one
BrowneePoints: Ashe and Penelo are your go to casters @Didero
SocraticMethod: Lots of things, graham. Lots. of. things.
KevinTheShark: To be mildly fair, we have an idea what happens later in the storyline.... y'know... sephiroth-wise
Ritaspirithntr: Probably gonna milk it for more content as more games come out
Didero: uh oh
Wicker_Guide: most of that is that mystic armor raises magic
malsareus: the perks of a royal education huh
Didero: Oh, and Ashe also got a bunch of Magick Lore Ups, right?
BrowneePoints: like the game tries to nudge you into making Ashe and Penelo into casting
SocraticMethod: @LoadingReadyRun Water, Slow, Poison
Earthenone: sages ring is good caster in general
Earthenone: half mana costs
Didero: @BrowneePoints But Ashe stabs so good!
SocraticMethod: Heals from water, weak to fire, half damage to everything else
Earthenone: ohh should take off the water katana then
LithelyUnshod: 14
RedNightmare7: @BrowneePoints I remember Bravely Default trying the same with some of the ladies and I fully refused to follow it :P
Wicker_Guide: @Didero in fairness, Bushi is an excellent pair class to any caster class
TXC2: Amadeus, but it's I'm Mateus
SocraticMethod: @LoadingReadyRun Normal attacks have a change of inflicting sleep
Didero: uwu
TXC2: there, now everyone else has my ear worm :p
TehAmelie: they're all such good stuffs
LordManiMani: stacked day for streaming: FF12, W+P, Nintendo Direct gdqCheer
LadyLockwood92: Ooo, piece of candy. Ooo, piece of candy
TehAmelie: the game has good feeling level ups, i think
Gekyouryuu: hey, G, are you a fan of Gary Larson's Far Side comics? because apparently he's discovered digital art and is making and posting new comics online as of a couple days ago
BrowneePoints: Oh yea Ashe DOES stab good, the game just tries to *wink wink nudge nudge* you real hard about making Ashe and Penelo casters @Didero
Earthenone: penelo does know evanecence, should be good to wake them up inside
SocraticMethod: @LoadingReadyRun Sorry to pinging like this, I keep forgetting to read the monster card to explain the monster card. It has Sleep and Blind Technicks
Wicker_Guide: I take it we're off to fight Orthos?
doubledbear: They keep giving Ashe plot swords, it's a pretty big hint lol
sporkraptor: raises for everyone!
Diabore: raises for everyone!
Lobo_Apache: DO we all get raises too?
rynsfelda: Is this a union shop now?
SocraticMethod: No, in FAQ
BigDaddyBland87: You get a raise! You get a raise!
TXC2: !addquote (Graham) [now] Everyone should have a raise.
LRRbot: New quote #8458: "Everyone should have a raise." —Graham [2023-02-08]
Didero: Maybe in the Bestiary?
SocraticMethod: Gamefaq online
Wicker_Guide: not in game
Dalrint: It won't be there until you kill it...
LordShadner: only after you kill your mark
LordManiMani: ah, FFIX PlayOnline
LadyLockwood92: !advice
LRRbot: In order to make clear parts more effective, select three.
Diabore: youre also getting hit hard
Wicker_Guide: @doubledbear yeah, if anything it's kind of annoying that Knight is the only "sword" class, since so many characters seem plausibly like they'd want it
Dalrint: It kind of makes 'Overking' a less impressive title when you fight three of them...
ReynardWrecca: Evening Graham. Evening all. Good GRIEF that's a lot of statistics and numbers :)
TXC2: hello ReynardWrecca welcome
Earthenone: ashe might be using the wrong sword if this flan abosrbs water
TehAmelie: Cura has much less value per MP, right? even accounting for the area effect
ReynardWrecca: Hey @TXC2 :)
Wicker_Guide: no the reverse, much more value per MP @TehAmelie
doubledbear: @Wicker_Guide Luckily the plot swords are auto unlocked for her if i recall
SocraticMethod: It does. Weak to Fire, heals from water
TehAmelie: huh
Wicker_Guide: even on a single target
ReynardWrecca: If your flan is absorbing water, it's maybe a sign you didn't get your flour/fat ratios right in the casing.
Wicker_Guide: @doubledbear in this version they're unlocked for everyone immediately, but they're also kind of weak for when you get them
SocraticMethod: Did Fran get Firaga?
doubledbear: @Wicker_Guide True true
sporkraptor: I keep getting Star Wars flashes from this background music
Wicker_Guide: @doubledbear giving them to Penelo and watching her look like she's getting squished under a sword bigger than her is cute though
SocraticMethod: Fira is low enough that you might as well use normal attacks
doubledbear: @Wicker_Guide Yup, i did that with the kings sword lol
Diabore: so much damage
Didero: The, uh, healthbar isn't moving much
Didero: This items menu definitely needs better sorting
ReynardWrecca: You could put mousse in your flan. But for real, is this culinary-themed?
SocraticMethod: Oh, fir_a_. I kept reading fire. Whoops
Diabore: @Didero you can sort it in the main menu
TXC2: slow and steady and all that
doubledbear: Yeah items don't auto sort
Dalrint: Is fran magetanking...
sporkraptor: flan aggro
Didero: @ReynardWrecca I think this mousse got created when a moogle dropped their snack down a well? I kind of forgot
Shadowsoflife: doesn't like Vera?
GDwarble: It's always a bad sign when your desert hates you
TXC2: Fran mad flan
LordShadner: can you cast decoy to redirct off of Fran?
ReynardWrecca: @Didero There's a sentence that's never been uttered before :)
TehAmelie: i could go for a cold aquaga right now
Diabore: quickening time?
Didero: "but what if i just stab the angry mousse a bunch"
BigDaddyBland87: mist time?

LordShadner: decoy is the aggro spell I believe
TXC2: "draw aggro" there's an Idea for CDHC Kappa
TehAmelie: Fire Guy, best superhero name of the year
TXC2: "got your fire right here pal"
beowuuf: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! I didn't blip blop!

Dalrint: Some marks respond to summons by freaking out
Diabore: no longer fire guy
KevinTheShark: Well.... she drew aggro....
Costar_s: Finally able to catch this live :D
Shadowsoflife: o/
RocknGrohlNerd: If you draw aggro you might be r wizard tribal in EDH
hackingducks: flan said summoning is cheating
TehAmelie: we may have bit off more flan than we can swallow
TheTekkieman: Yeah...summoned him JUST as you hit his "angry phase".
sporkraptor: too many flan (too many flan)
shurtal: Aquaga sounds like a town in New Zealand or Australia
Wicker_Guide: getting hit should also wake her
Zaghrog: Cure might be getting old, it only provides little healing
LadyLockwood92: Now?
KevinTheShark: HP-wise, is Cura that much better than using a Hi-potion?
GTea30: depends on potion lore
TXC2: no more questions
Zaghrog: quickenings are non elemental
thirsty_kitteh: "Mist Charge" refills that persons quickening bar to full, hence Ashe getting in
Diabore: non elemental actually
Didero: yer fira'd!
TheThirdTail: All these have no element, since you can't really control what you get and randomly healing a boss with absorb would duck
TheThirdTail: *suck
KevinTheShark: Gettin reeeeeally close now
TXC2: our long national crisis is almost over
beowuuf: we just need to use some flancy footwork
Punching_Bag: you got to the enrage phase
MurphEP: lrrSPOOP
Wicker_Guide: last 10% always sucks with marks (I think the intent was to have quickenings be finishers, but quickenings aren't really consistent enough for that)
Lord_Hosk: Hey Graham, You're an amazing person, entertaining to watch and gracious in person. OHHHH got you, I made you accept a compliment.
sporkraptor: flanrage
Earthenone: even if we wipe the A team, the B team can come in and quickening
Wicker_Guide: mad because flan
Shadowsoflife: Fran* :p
Seagulyus: oh man this flan
Zaghrog: swap in a fresh party member and quickening
Zaghrog: is an option
thirsty_kitteh: swap out for a different healder who is at full hp?
Costar_s: These Elite Marks are tough. I took 45 minutes fighting one that was 10+ my levels lol
Izandai: Thank goodness there's no cast time on these phoenix downs.
CururuGuasu: Bench team is gonna steal the kill
Dalrint: Trading one life for another
JeremyDevoid: swap to the goober squad just to allow the A squad to recover?
TehAmelie: it's a vicious cycle of life and death
TXC2: we need a full restore :p
Zaghrog: Bench team has full hp and full mist charges btw
thirsty_kitteh: swap swap swap :3
ReynardWrecca: The Great & Mighty Poo - THAT's who that reminds me of!
beowuuf: mean :(
SocraticMethod: So last 20% HP is enrage time where they do not have cooldowns for Magic attacks or MP use
Robot_Bones: nah goober squad swap in and nuke with quickenings
Didero: Did you steal from the mousse already? Maybe it has a sweet katana
SocraticMethod: So it's a bit of DPS race
MurphEP: Cmon, boys
Zaghrog: The thing about mist charges is, if you have one, you have enough to nuke
MurphEP: We're so close
SocraticMethod: Quickenings?
TXC2: it's all on you Basch!
Diabore: pro tip, if you rez vaan you can do a quickening again
smquinn22: That is terrifying looking
1fairy2boots: hi potion?
grgriffin3: I remember when I got beaten up by a mousse. My poor stomach....
Earthenone: bash can quickening
Zaghrog: Things that could help with this ffight: protect and shell, and saving mist charges for the end phase (where the enemy enrages)
Dalrint: You can raise peple not in the party. So you could bring inn your B team, raise your A team, and then when B team dies,A team is ready to go again
Lord_Hosk: Hey chat, you are a collection of kind and caring individuals that I am grateful to have in my life. Ohhh I nailed you
jonnykefka: oh is it pirate o'clock
Robot_Bones: listen here you little
TehAmelie: i am roasted
KevinTheShark: Damn, you got me Hosk
Zaghrog: The thing with quickening is, if you have even one charge, you can use it to kick off a nuking
Earthenone: lp is to all even dead i think?
jonnykefka: I forget how that works
Shadowsoflife: @Lord_Hosk Oh yea, your awesome.
SocraticMethod: LP is shared, XP is not
SeiichiSin: Hello Graham! Good to see you playing another FF game.
NightValien28: they kinda look elemental
grgriffin3: Balthier is styling on this dessert
Zaghrog: Quickenings are all non elemental
Diabore: quickenings are non elemental
ShamelessMatt: quickenings ard non-elemental
Earthenone: either way, go off baltheir
LolCamAlpha: Balthier is just like, "No, *I'M* the hero of this story"
smquinn22: why so many times?
jonnykefka: My spouse from the other room: "Is that the sound of Balthier trash-canning something?" She may have...played this game a lot
Dalrint: You are way better at quickening chains than I ever was...
TXC2: wow Balthier popped off
smquinn22: I haven't played this game in SOOO long.
Didero: Theologists have been speculating about what happens when you're dead for millenia
RocknGrohlNerd: thank you @Lord_Hosk
Diabore: balthier got BEEF with this flan
LadyLockwood92: Well, he *is* a leading man.
Sacrenos: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Play it Forward (Graham returns to the Final Fantasy series on Play it Forward! Game: Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age) at Wed 10:00 AM PST (42m ago).
Lobo_Apache: Balthier read the script and knew he got another shot
NightValien28: stop stop, its already dead
jonnykefka: oh no
Seagulyus: I checked, dead characters don't get LP
TheThirdTail: yeah, once you have three people with level 3 quickening, it gets wild
jonnykefka: that's water element
TXC2: "nine times?" "NINE times!"
TehAmelie: waltzin in at the last second and actin like a big hero is very in character at least
Didero: I mean, that flan bullied Fran a lot, so of course Balthier is angry
MurphEP: FBtouchdown
RocknGrohlNerd: FBtouchdown FBtouchdown
jonnykefka: lrrGOAT
Robot_Bones: only 14K no biggie
grgriffin3: We take those!
Costar_s: FBtouchdown
beowuuf: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
LolCamAlpha: FBtouchdown
Boiler_bot: Got there.
TheShokara: impuls35FGG
sporkraptor: you beat the flan! XD
Zaghrog: If a gifht seemes a little out of reach, chances are, a quickeing chain gets you there
jedi_master_zll: benginDab
Leonhart321: Just got here and we dealt with that Mark we left? Good syart
TheShokara: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
BigDaddyBland87: FBtouchdown FBtouchdown
azraeldagda: Eyyyy! Nice job!
Leonhart321: start even
sporkraptor: victory vs. pudding!
Dalrint: "Well, it killed all our friends, but we beat dessert."
MousseFilledCat: Only 24 LP. Could be worse to have missed.
Lord_Hosk: The key wasn't broken but that you did all that sillieness right there at the end, and broke the key you were going to get as a reward.
thirsty_kitteh: time to walk to that nearby save crystal?
KevinTheShark: I feel like something called something as innocent as "white mousse" shouldn't be anywhere near that dangerous
SeiichiSin: Victory!
Didero: Something only a Canadian can hout
Didero: *shout
SocraticMethod: That quickening was 20% of boss total HP.
Earthenone: i never knew that about raising other party members
SocraticMethod: Could have ended enrage part by itself :)
Wicker_Guide: @KevinTheShark when it's assigned to you as an opponent by a little furry mouse wizard called Sorbet you have to grade on a scale
LadyLockwood92: That Mousse fell on your keys.
TXC2: the mousse is no longer loose abouss this houss
Zaghrog: the ability to swap party members mid combat and ressing outside the current party means you can do pretty gross things to enemies. Most of it is quickenings, but still
Mal2mad: the mousse has vamossed
Didero: That's for bungee jumping
TehAmelie: as fluid as the party formation is, i wonder why you don't just have everyone available all the time
samu_btdp1985: congratulations
Earthenone: moogle in rabanaster
KevinTheShark: @wicker_guide ahhh that makes more sense.... not much more, but still more
Wicker_Guide: @TehAmelie graphical limits
SocraticMethod: If that would have been canon Balthier would have been so insufferable until end of the game
grgriffin3: Dammit, now I want some mousse
thirsty_kitteh: tehamelie: make outs above 3 people are impractical /j
Dalrint: But they brought back deepground!
NightValien28: so very much like the remake Kappa
TXC2: think of the computational power needed for SIX sets of gambits going off
racoonius: hi Graham and hi chat
Wicker_Guide: @Dalrint ...yaaaay...
Boiler_bot: Deepground sucks tbh. Quite disappointing they did that.
TXC2: hello racoonius welcome
Dalrint: I am the only person excited about deepground and I don't care what any of y'all think.
Izandai: I'm sorry.
Boiler_bot: Fair.
Leonhart321: I'm interested to see where they go with it.
Dalrint: :P
KevinTheShark: Crisis Core, I found, wasn't terrible.
racoonius: Graham have you ever played the OG FF12 and if so which one do you like better?🙂
Feriority: Hey friends. Are we remembering not to believe Ondore's lies today?
MousseFilledCat: Crisis Core, where you get to hang out with Sephiroth not being an asshole for a while
Costar_s: Tose games aren't... the most polished lol
cuttlefishman: Who is the Kimahari of FFXII
Leonhart321: Crisis Core was, and is, fun. Though the Hard Mode Minera fight is the worsf
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Deepground is Dirge of Cerberus, not Advent Children. For all the difference it makes.
SmashTCG: How bad
Diabore: probably close
LadyLockwood92: 'Me? Gongaga!'
IviaRelle: Sounds accurate to the original
Dalrint: It's honetsly spot on.
doubledbear: Zack's new VA... i do not like his performance
Gekyouryuu: me? gongaga!
KevinTheShark: Yeah... still fun to play, but it was.... cringe-worthy
TXC2: I'm now noticing how TIGHT Balthier's pants are :p
djalternative: So, G, are you just going to slowly do a PiF of every FF game?
1fairy2boots: Sounds a bit like "He's going there. And then he'll be there." Still one of the best lines ever.
LadyLockwood92: Yeah, I remember Vincent May Cry.
Wicker_Guide: you can call those leggings
doubledbear: What got me with Crisis core remake is that you're building the game from the ground up in unreal engine and it's still structured exactly like the psp game
sporkraptor: he just saved the party singl-handedly, he can have little a lizard as a treat
Dalrint: I'm just glad deepground gets to appear in a game that wasn't awful. Stupid DoC
Diabore: what is with balthier and hating sewer monsters?
doubledbear: short, lifeless corridors
Izandai: I like how Balthier's fighting stance has him holding his shield on the opposite side of his body from the enemy.
SocraticMethod: @TXC2 He's leading man in leather i mean leather i mean leather i mean leading pants
Leonhart321: Oh no, you'll break the game in half if you do all thee side missions you can when you get them
NightValien28: hope you like hearing CONFLICT RESOLVE every 20 seconds
goatprince: gotta return the key first
Earthenone: its the right key, need moogle to fix it for you
Didero: Maybe it's a broken sluice gate key?
Costar_s: Veering off the beaten path even slightly has you be a bit overlevelled I found.
LadyLockwood92: Coincidentally I'm also playing FF14 on my Viera boy rn.
Leonhart321: Like, you can fight the hardest boss in the game before the end of chapter 3
BrowneePoints: Oh yea! I forgot yall are doing Monikers again tonight!
Izandai: Not technically inaccurate.
malsareus: the conflict has ended
Wicker_Guide: "Peace achieved" "All enemies pacified"
TheThirdTail: That's... a resolution. Yes.
Didero: "Nobody can be angry if nobody is left alive :)"
josh___something: In a certain sense, you did
goatprince: the conflict came to its resolution
TWCblank: Conflict Resolved is the BEST unintentional comedy
Diabore: there is no longer a conflict
doubledbear: Zack's conflict resolution needs work
TehAmelie: peaceful conflict resolution through superior firepower
malsareus: there is no conflict in Ba Sing Se
Leonhart321: I mean, its not wrong
Tarbage_Goilets: Conflict resolved with extreme prejudice
SocraticMethod: Hitman school of conflict de-escalation
raulghoulia: Monikers was so fun last time
KevinTheShark: It kinda sounds like how Shinra would PR campaign their fights
JakeKamas: Wait what, I just got back, what game has conflict resolution with murder? Aside from every RPG
malsareus: the game was technically correct, which we all know is the best correct
Gekyouryuu: it said resolved, it never said peacefully
NightValien28: JakeKamas crisis core
Izandai: The slots? Yeah just ignore the slots.
Leonhart321: I do miss "Modulating Phase"
JakeKamas: @NightValien28 Thank you!
doubledbear: Random slot machine is random
shurtal: crisis core is a very "japanese public transit" video game
NightValien28: oh the gacha lore delivery\super power
cuttlefishman: Who is Monikering?
Tarbage_Goilets: Stuff is happening sounds baout right for the dream wave
GTea30: Oh it doesn't automatically interrupt gameplay this time? Nice
doubledbear: He does get cooler
Dalrint: Nope Zack is a giant dork
Wicker_Guide: yah no zack is dork
Izandai: He does become somewhat cooler over the course of the game.
Leonhart321: You have to watch the cutscenes at least once for. otha trophy and an item
BrowneePoints: nah he's Jock Cloud
SocraticMethod: Dirge of Cerberus symdrome :D
grgriffin3: Zack seems like a dweeb
Leonhart321: Oh, he is not
doubledbear: End game Zack is cool imo
Wicker_Guide: Zack is "cool" in CLOUD's memories. Consider that
TXC2: Zack being cool is what Cloud and Tifa say about him
goatprince: zack was always a silly, weirdly peppy character
Didero: yo, that bow's on fire
cuttlefishman: Cloud is a dork, so is Zack
LadyLockwood92: Cloud just *thinks* Zack is cool
KevinTheShark: They wanted to make Zack relatable.... to absolutely noone
TheTekkieman: He's the progenitor of the "squat obsession". I don't see that being cool.
Boiler_bot: Oh well
Izandai: @TXC2 Tifa?
Earthenone: we want burning arrows not a burning bow!
SmashTCG: a poor judge of caracter?
MousseFilledCat: The very definition
TXC2: Izandai isn't Zack Tifa's Ex or something
BrowneePoints: Zack is a 100% Jock and Cloud wants to be a Jock
grgriffin3: Cloud is the unreliable narrator to end unreliable narrators
Didero: hey that sounds familiar
Lobo_Apache: Unreliable narrator, but good in a dress
Izandai: @TXC2 Aerith's ex
BrowneePoints: so he thinks Zack is the King of Crossfit
TXC2: Izandai ah ok then
Dalrint: Cloud is the worst kind of unreliable narrator because he thinks he's a reliable narrator.
Izandai: And then he didn't die.
goatprince: he 'disappeared'
Earthenone: remember we have the sluice gate combonation in our inventory
Diabore: and then he didnt die
SocraticMethod: Funnily enough Burning Bow does not do Fire damage, but boosts fire spells.
Izandai: Or something.
Feriority: He might have gotten better because of ghosts
beowuuf: Sluce Gatekey, attorney for sewers
TWCblank: he got better
doubledbear: Only Ex cause he went missing and hella died
LordManiMani: uh oh spoilers
Wicker_Guide: Kingdom Hearts
Feriority: Or in spite of ghosts
SmashTCG: shame about that
malsareus: the moogles stole him
TXC2: he died in the same Jesus did Kappa
MousseFilledCat: In at least one timeline he died
sporkraptor: yep, that's final fantasy
AugmentingPath: He had did died, but then maybe he didn't?
shurtal: course, you're seeing Zack go from eager up and comer to competant 1st class soldier, so Zack has some development he's gotta go through
cuttlefishman: What is the Kingdom Hearts exactly
LordManiMani: @wicker_guide He's a dweeb in Kingdom Hearts too
Leonhart321: I'm almost certain I know what they're doing with it
hamraffle: They’re together in the thick wet of the Lifestream
Shadowsoflife: @cuttlefishman a video game :p
LadyLockwood92: Also, OG FF7 came out nearly 30 years ago.
Izandai: Zack has been seen in a not-dead state. We don't know what that means.
AugmentingPath: Spoilers for ff7 regarding Aerith and death, unheard of
SmashTCG: no
djalternative: till death do us part. sounds like a zombie virus is a great way to get around breaking up
Dalrint: Actually that's a good way to put it. Zack doesn't get cooler but he does get more competant.
goatprince: pet the feral retriever to complete the hunt
Costar_s: It was the Nomura-ing
thegreatwyrdling: Cheer100 I'm so very happy you are doing better Graham.
LolCamAlpha: oh no
LolCamAlpha: I am playing the Remake now and I have concern
Boiler_bot: I dislike the Nomura sticky fingers tbh.
Ritaspirithntr: LUK
Wicker_Guide: @LordManiMani @cuttlefishman no I'm just using it as a shorthand for "convoluted plot tangle with little payoff and questionable world logic
Ritaspirithntr: LUL
KevinTheShark: I feel like there's a statute of limitations on what could be classed as spoilers, and crisis core is past it
doubledbear: Nomura has the stickiest fingers these last 30 years or whatevs
shurtal: make you feel your age o'clock, ff7 is now 26 years old
cuttlefishman: @Wicker_Guide yeah, but in KH what is KH
hamraffle: As a massive Kingdom Hearts fan, yes, yes it is VERY Nomura.
NightValien28: that ending actually killed any interest I had in the remake
LordManiMani: @wicker_guide I know, just pointing out that he a dork in all timelines
Earthenone: annother flan?!
thirsty_kitteh: But they do have bunny ears, and that's pretty cool
LadyLockwood92: @Wicker_Guide Depends who you ask.
TXC2: oh Gods we gotta kill a Muk :p
Tarbage_Goilets: Important to remember no matter how stick with fingerprints remake gets, the original will still be there
Izandai: This is your regular reminder that Nomura did not write FF7R. The guy who wrote FF7 did.
goatprince: everybody loves orthos!
LolCamAlpha: Like, I am enjoying it so far and I like that there's a lot more depth to Cloud than what I remember from playing it uh.... *checks calendar* 17 years ago.
Didero: no this is for money
IzlanntheLion: maybe
MousseFilledCat: It’s a Peggy Sue plot (not to be confused with Mary Sue)
sporkraptor: just keep telling yourself that
Dalrint: If it makes you feel better.
Lobo_Apache: Helping your pocket book
kumatsu: this is your standard fantasy world adventure guild stuff
Izandai: Anyway, I'm very interested in where FF7R is going.
LordManiMani: @izandai TIL
Feriority: You're not not helping people
ShamelessMatt: little of column A, little of column B
Tarbage_Goilets: Sure
thirsty_kitteh: Someone is giving us money, so *logically* we're helping the economy!
Costar_s: They're petitioned by people but the Clans treat it like a sport so... yes
Earthenone: yeah, these are like bountys on criminals, but for monsters
SocraticMethod: Were "helping" by get "dealing" with their "problems"
Leonhart321: Yes...... and profit
cuttlefishman: are we the baddies
hamraffle: Conflict Resolved!
goatprince: let me save you time by telling you you aren't ready for antlion yet
Wicker_Guide: @cuttlefishman oh okay. Ultimately it's the macguffin. It's a quasi-mythical place that summoning will cause the universe to reset, or be destroyed, or healed, or.... something
cuttlefishman: what
Gekyouryuu: think of it like monster hunter. is for "research"
Earthenone: balzac?
Wicker_Guide: @LordManiMani fair
northos: [insert Balzac joke here]
BigDaddyBland87: Oh yes....Balzac's Ringwrym
Wicker_Guide: @LadyLockwood92 I will defend the moment-to-moment character relationships in Kingdom Hearts. I will not defend the plot
BrowneePoints: I'm a bigger Rabelais fan
cuttlefishman: I remember Bopha
djalternative: what's this about your ball sack, graham?
LordManiMani: not Mister Bucket?
cuttlefishman: Do you remember Bopha?
Gekyouryuu: no
shurtal: Graham "I never knew anyone that had a Balzac"
Costar_s: there is a Balzac who is a villain in Dragon Quest IV. That's about the only other time I've heard that name
LolCamAlpha: Shoes!
TXC2: was that a Canada thing? :p
Izandai: @LordManiMani Yeah, people assume that the ending came from Nomura and uh... No. Not from what I've heard, anyway.
Tarbage_Goilets: Tell me more about this dream you had
GDwarble: I remember it
Spades_Slicc: I don't remember ballzack but I remember Sugandese
Dalrint: I do. I never saw one in the real world though. Just tv
TehAmelie: i learned a little of Balzac's poetry before i learned enough English to make fun of his name, feels weird
cuttlefishman: Maybe it's a BC thing
SocraticMethod: I'm only familiar with Honoré de Balzac from lit history long ago
Lobo_Apache: I'm sorry, I'm not from this timeline originally
LadyLockwood92:, that sounds absolutely buckwild.
Feriority: The anti-trap boots are useful but I feel vaguely resentful whenever I use them because I wouldn't need a full set if the AI didn't love running straight into traps
shurtal: i remember things like that, but tha tcomemercial doesn't ring a bell
Didero: yeah, just google 'balzac', nothing could go wrong
sporkraptor: if you do look it up be sure to have safe search on
TXC2: wikipedia's got nothing on it
Spades_Slicc: Trust me Graham, I've looked up Ballsack on the internet enough to know what I'm getting into
Mattmitchell45: I'm always afraid to sell Loot
Leonhart321: This sounds like a Mandela Effect thing
Robot_Bones: @Lobo_Apache I'm beginning to feel this way too
TehAmelie: on reflection i'm thinking of Baudelaire's poetry. such a long time ago
Tarbage_Goilets: Just casually put balzac into your search engine
djalternative: I'm not falling for your google tricks Graham
CanPlayGames: What was that waterballon on a string thing that you sent between you and a friend like a hot potato?
SocraticMethod: "Turn up the fun with Balzac!"
goatprince: 'my name ain't fransisca, brother'
TXC2: SocraticMethod good lord
LadyLockwood92: [Insert joke about Fran's Marriage License]
Izandai: huh
SocraticMethod: "Us two Balzacs are where it’s at"
sporkraptor: laughing very loudly now
hamraffle: Oh woooow. Balzac. Suddenly I’m 4 years old in California again.
cuttlefishman: Nope
Gekyouryuu: nope
Costar_s: that sounds 90s as hell
andy_ink: Oh, yup.
Didero: WHAT is this
djalternative: oh. I vaguely remember this
Pal_Friendpatine: Boy the 90’s were a weird, and colorful, time
Lobo_Apache: Yeaaaah, aparently i'm not from this timeline
shurtal: but how funky?
Wicker_Guide: I hate it
KevinTheShark: What in the name of
TXC2: Costar_s PROFOUNDLY 90's
SmashTCG: Sorry no, Im only 30
GDwarble: I remember it
Dalrint: I am having 90s flashbacks
Leonhart321: This sounds aggressively 90s, yes
nichol_bogus: Decoy is the draw aggro spell you want. Buy it here
Gekyouryuu: maybe it's a west coast thing?
TheAwkes: I would never have remembered that on my own, but I absolutely have seen that before.
niccus: someone save this in a folder for some desert bus
Izandai: demipyroLul
Earthenone: this is going to be one of the weirdest copyright claims so far
hamraffle: That reactivated some dormant brain cells in me
ElektroTal: holy shit, i remember that
thirsty_kitteh: I am happy to report that this did not enter my UK childhood
IviaRelle: I'm 35 and Canadian and have no memory of this
Mattmitchell45: Never heard of it
Dalrint: No because I'm on the other side of the continent from you.
TXC2: yeah we did not get that in the UK
Tarbage_Goilets: Can confirm, not part of a UK childhood
Earthenone: !patreon
LRRbot: 2648 patrons for a total of $20,625.56 per month.
ThorSokar: GREAT 5 seconds in and I feel composOld
beowuuf: look, words can hurt. especially when saying that word spontaneously puts your back out
doubledbear: how rude
TheShokara: dangit, i stepped away to the restroom, what song/artist are we talking about?
AugmentingPath: Yeah, Balzac was regional, specifically he was French
KevinTheShark: Whaaaaaaa
azraeldagda: oooohhhh i remember that. I had no idea it was called that though.
cassaclyzm: I vaguely remember this, but I might be kidding myself, there were a lot of bad rap commercials in the 90's
ElektroTal: this ad used to run on nickelodeon
TheAwkes: Not super regional, I'm in Vancouver now but I'm from Halifax.
TXC2: TheShokara it was an ad
Boiler_bot: Well thanks for Youtube VODs anyway.
ScrapyardGhostTrain: You might not be, but I bet Youtube will anyway.
hamraffle: I’m 37 and remember from when I was a kid in California.
beowuuf: we allknow to not taunt happy ballsack
SocraticMethod: There are multiple commercials I've found:
Masslost: I don’t remember that but I remember skip it Graham
nichol_bogus: Decoy is the draw aggro spell you want. You can buy it at the bazaar.

Lobo_Apache: The Balzac corporation?
ReynardWrecca: Happy Birthday @Rampidzier, welcome to the coolest decade.
KevinTheShark: That feels spiteful, and I'm all for it
hamraffle: Let them fight.
TXC2: SocraticMethod clearly using the same footage
Dalrint: It's one sad lawyer sitting in an empty office, his computer chirps, he leaps up excited at a chance to do something...
Tarbage_Goilets: I'm so sick of big balzac trying to squash the little guy!
ThorSokar: Actually that's a copywrite deadlock, if there are 2 or more claims no one gets any money!
TehAmelie: the Bofades foundation
cuttlefishman: I like the orphans just chilling looking at this dying thief
BrowneePoints: I had to go to the Othrosdontist once
cuttlefishman: very mood
TXC2: Rampidzier happy birthday
groulux: Graham turns towards the window....Let them Fight!
BrowneePoints: it was like pulling teeth
unicornly: What? How rude of square! I’m going to write them a strongly worded letter
goatprince: orthros. the pervy octopus!
Didero: dude, we don't need your life story
TheShokara: I remember the toy but not the commercial. my familty was stationed in Germany in the early 90's though, so I missed a lot of weird TV from that era
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Orthros = Cerberus' 2-headed sibling, for those interested.
Gekyouryuu: orthrus = cerberus' 2 headed sibling/cousin/something
Wicker_Guide: Thief Very Here for the Drama
grgriffin3: This sure is a lot of words to say "Go here and kill this thing."
goatprince: you can actually manage this one if you did the white flan one
Seagulyus: @Gekyouryuu sibling is correct, they share a mother IIRC
niccus: technically hasbro owns balzac now, so if you figure out to finagle things around, you *could* have a balzac secret lair
vellebastet: LUL LUL LUL
cuttlefishman: uhhh
Costar_s: you can smack that there balzac
nichol_bogus: Decoy is the draw aggro spell you want. You can buy it at the bazaar.
sporkraptor: whack your balzac
vellebastet: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! This is a Hideo Kojima production.
Wicker_Guide: :(
AugmentingPath: Whack it, Graham. You can whack it
hackingducks: as if its name wasn't suggestive enough...
KevinTheShark: I don't think we got those in the UK
Seagulyus: technically I think 95% of all monsters in Greek myth were siblings, and the other 5% were people turned into monsters
SocraticMethod: And Balzac's back, baby!
Earthenone: all spellbombs now balzacs
Wicker_Guide: monarchWhy
thirsty_kitteh: Oh boy, here I go pondering again!

ThorSokar: Don't forget the Bop-It!

TXC2: that spiked ball that vibrated
TheMandrew: pogo ball
goatprince: I thought the tech was to double tap the balzac?

LadyLockwood92: 'I tap my balzac' - Me shortly before being forcibly removed from the MagicFest.
djalternative: oh yeah. I def remember that
Gekyouryuu: Staff of Domination as a Bop-it?
ghyllnox: In the US at least all the ballzacs are sold out :(

BrowneePoints: doesn't hasbro OWN some of those toys?
TXC2: well someone has to :p
shurtal: Umezawa's Jitte is Lawn Darts
Feriority: That would be an amazing un-card if you use the bop-it moves as actual costs
Mattmitchell45: Lux Cannon as Concentration
thirsty_kitteh: Bolt it! Tap it! Flunge it!
Ritaspirithntr: Wouldn’ the wand of wonder be the “bop it”?
Masslost: Expedition map as monopoly
Earthenone: ogir yensa for balzacs ringwurm

Wicker_Guide: camera has other interests besides combat
ReynardWrecca: Ringworm? Really?

SocraticMethod: And at 20% it'll start spamming attacks
AugmentingPath: 1 is not 0
Boiler_bot: Maybe get behind Belias?
thirsty_kitteh: run around?
grgriffin3: Ringworm knows the real danger of the fight
AugmentingPath: !quote mash r1

SocraticMethod: !findquote r1
LRRbot: Quote #2317: "That guy isn't actually that scary, you just stay behind him. You stay behind him and mash R1. Just like every other thing in these lrrEFF ing games. You just stay behind it and mash R1. And then you tell other people to git gud. That's how this game works. Stand behind it, mash R1, go to other people's chats, tell them to git gud.

jonnykefka: ^^
Costar_s: SO he's just... stuck for some reason lol
grgriffin3: Belias did his job though
Spades_Slicc: What are you talking about Graham? Ashe is clearly holding a steel sword
jonnykefka: some glitches occurred
Boiler_bot: Belias ought to stick around until his HP goes down.
Mattmitchell45: Ashe's only steel is Hatori Hanzo steel
jonnykefka: so you kited it perfectly
Boiler_bot: Oh yeah!
LordManiMani: oo death curse
Earthenone: i guess no "presumably" ring mail for us
LolCamAlpha: Welp, bye
TXC2: we killed it too well to rob it :p
doubledbear: gg ez hunt
Leonhart321: If only all the bosses are this cheese-able
Didero: Nice farewell gift
shurtal: Where are the clocks on the ground Belias
SocraticMethod: Worth it lol
Izandai: nice
LolCamAlpha: nice
Boiler_bot: Nice
TXC2: Nice
RocknGrohlNerd: FBtouchdown
grgriffin3: Prey Slaughtered
Leonhart321: Nice
BigDaddyBland87: Nice
shurtal: Ring Wyrm Vanquished, you used the cream!
ReynardWrecca: Whoop!
northos: @shurtal *shudders*
SocraticMethod: ez game ez life
Costar_s: I don't think many hunts usually have much to steal, which is annoying when some really rare stuff are locked behind them
shurtal: @northos just be glad it wasn't a Red Chocobo
GTea30: You Defeated!
Izandai: huh
northos: @shurtal or math robot :p
shurtal: @northos ONE IS NOT PRIME
goatprince: balzac.
Earthenone: balzac
ThorSokar: yea, the translation for Dark Souls was initially super bad
Costar_s: I like when they did the GDQ runs the messages are usually like "DONATE TO MSF" and such XP
SocraticMethod: It boosts fire spells
Earthenone: the arrows arent burning, the bow is
goatprince: the burning is in its spirit
doubledbear: I vaguely remember that from og DS but otherwise i would have assumed they were message mods
raulghoulia: increases fire magic damage
Dalrint: Better Burning Bow
cuttlefishman: balzac. Ring wyrm's balzac. The balzac belong to ring wyrm
BigDaddyBland87: time to please Balzac
KevinTheShark: It's the Burning Bow because of its SICK Flame Decals
sporkraptor: meh, probably nothing important is on fire
thirsty_kitteh: Note, G: because it boosts fire spells, you probably *dson't* want Fire arrows, as they'll never be super effective
thirsty_kitteh: (as Fran will cast preferentially)
A_Dub888: It's a high fantasy setting, something's always on fire
ReynardWrecca: Every time I see 'Rabanastre' I just hear Graham's 'Unskippable' voice going "Welcome to scenic Rabanastre..."
nichol_bogus: Decoy is the draw aggro spell you want. You can buy it at the bazaar.
thirsty_kitteh: but the other ones did poison
Diabore: wheres the balsac
Metric_Furlong: going to have to go for a bit, but should be back in time for W+P. Have a good rest of the stream, everyone
Boiler_bot: West.
BigDaddyBland87: OMG
Didero: "Where the hell is balzac? He's down..." is more funny to me than it should be
Robot_Bones: of the new hampshire balzacs?
TXC2: so long Metric_Furlong stay safe
KevinTheShark: Balzac in the lower area?? 😂
CausticAcid: I can finally catch this live, while I queue for dungeons in FFXIV!
SocraticMethod: @nichol_bogus Don't worry about it. G hasn't got Charge even though chat keeps yelling about it
TXC2: hello CausticAcid welcome
grgriffin3: If you're having trouble finding the balzac, it may be time to talk to a professional.
Diabore: found your balzac
LordZarano: Hi Balzac!
goatprince: icegraham? did I hear that right?
Diabore: uh oh, our balzac went away
Dalrint: What's a moon ring?
Lobo_Apache: New bottom surgery just dropped. Balzac is just GONE
shurtal: i have SPECIAL ICE
cuttlefishman: RIP one out for a homie
doubledbear: Loading Ready Run, known for its ICE Branding
goatprince: (loot)
LadyLockwood92: @Lobo_Apache That's a *very* fast Orchiectomy.
nichol_bogus: Decoy is the draw aggro spell you want. You can buy it at the bazaar.
A_Dub888: Too bad it doesn't give 69 attack, then it could have been a Nicebrand
shurtal: you get moon rings from moon pies
Diabore: if it was useful it wouldnt be in the loot tab
ThorSokar: For some reason I heard Dave's Spokesman while you were reading that
Feriority: "My protective charm turned into the moon" "That's rough buddy"
TXC2: LadyLockwood92 huh, one would assume it was called a testectomy :p
Wicker_Guide: @Diabore except for Ghysal Greens and Teleport Stones
Didero: gotta get all the stuff
Wicker_Guide: I never felt like Decoy worked, but good luck to you
TheThirdTail: Decoy is kind of cracked if you want it to be. But not really necessary to optimize like that
Earthenone: i think we can buy the charge technic in town too
Costar_s: I didn't know they sold Ethers.......
grgriffin3: So many Ethers, you'd think Nas was here
Boiler_bot: Decoy is situational yeah.
SocraticMethod: Charge technick for MP regen, too?
Gekyouryuu: booooo
MurphEP: Nice
LadyLockwood92: @TXC2 Yeah, weird huh?
BusTed: good try
Wicker_Guide: Ethers are only sold after you get a fairly high rank from hunts
LordManiMani: lrrFRUMP
BrowneePoints: I didn't know they sold Eithers Ether!
TXC2: LadyLockwood92 well that's latin for ya :p
A_Dub888: benginFingers
grgriffin3: Ether/Or
Diabore: i think 'i didnt ether' would have worked
KevinTheShark: PrideHeyyy
doubledbear: Someone sells teleport stones later which is really good for late game side questing
cuttlefishman: Where should I go for a grilled cheese in victoria
sporkraptor: ooouuuucccchhhh
MurphEP: Clean cut for vod?
Costar_s: BTW, you can auto-sort your items, abilities, and equipment in the menu if you want them in a more "makes-sense" order
LordZarano: escher3PUN
Wicker_Guide: @doubledbear they show up in the purchase options for some airship routes
shurtal: Berserk juice
SocraticMethod: Berserk status effect
raulghoulia: wonder what it feels like getting fully healed by a save crystal. does it feel like coffee cause it restores mp too. do I feel rested. Am I still hungry?
TheTekkieman: Berserk in a jar!
doubledbear: @Wicker_Guide Those a limited if i recall?
Feriority: Bacchus's wine is the... well maybe not the good stuff but it does the job
Didero: Putting the 'party' in, uh, 'party'
Earthenone: tastes like Guts
Costar_s: Berserk juice can be very handy for the DPSers XP
TXC2: as in Bacchanal ?
thirsty_kitteh: I can't decided which party member it is funniest to picture as a fight-y drunk. Probably Ashe or Penelo?
Earthenone: i hope thats not the god we need to dethrone later
cuttlefishman: god of what G
BrowneePoints: yes
doubledbear: I'm Captain Bacchus!
Feriority: Baka's wine
LordManiMani: only the finest wining and dining
Earthenone: hes cool
cuttlefishman: yes
LithelyUnshod: yep
Gekyouryuu: yes
grgriffin3: Bacchus, the god of getting smaaaaaaaaaaaaashed
SocraticMethod: More or less
LadyLockwood92: Pretty much, yeah.
CausticAcid: They are yeah
Dalrint: Yup
Costar_s: that dude that showed humans to make wine and then his liver got eated forever
grgriffin3: Correct
TXC2: yes they are
jonnykefka: yep
BrowneePoints: but Dionysus was more androgynous and Bacchus was hyper masc
Dalrint: Bacchus is roman
Leonhart321: Pretty much
TXC2: god of wine
LadyLockwood92: Dionysus is generally *also* the god of ritual madness.
jonnykefka: god of party hard. REALLY hard.
LordManiMani: Andrew W K?
TheTekkieman: It was. Right below the Ice Elemental.
hackingducks: @BrowneePoints oy there's a lot more to it than that... there were like three generations of dionysus and they were all a little different...
KevinTheShark: @jonnykefka the god of Andrew WK??
Wicker_Guide: @thirsty_kitteh Ashe and Balthier deep in their cups angrily sniping at eachother like a shakespeare improv troupe
SocraticMethod: From wiki: Bacchus is the god of the grape-harvest, winemaking, orchards and fruit, vegetation, fertility, festivity, insanity, ritual madness, religious ecstasy, and theatre
LadyLockwood92: Where there's smoke, they pinch back.
HorusFive: Also important work
SocraticMethod: So god of theatre kids
Diabore: i found some pudding in the sewer and we kicked each others ass
Lord_Hosk: Graham over here talking about the god of Buttkiss like its 2019 again.
Feriority: I could really kill a flan right now
hackingducks: (and then there's Zagreus... which... who even knows)
cuttlefishman: God of bupkiss is something else
Diabore: penelo seems like shes seeking out these traps
hackingducks: is Zagreus Dionysus? nobody knows
BigDaddyBland87: oh hai potion
TXC2: Zagreus is basically from a different mythology then the rest of the greek gods
MurphEP: We're all Dionysus
cuttlefishman: Dionysus was the friends we made along the way
grgriffin3: The empire just needs a little Elbow Room, it's fine
SocraticMethod: Hey! Buttholes provide essential function. Try living without one.
HorusFive: It has no strategic merit at all- but the Empire heard it was a peace-loving community of pacifists. So, you know they're going to war-crime
LadyLockwood92: Zagreus is largely from the Orphic prophecies, it's *why* Orpheus is the character Zag and Dionysus mess with.
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Point of note: there are *two* figures named Zagreus in Greek mythology. Hades' son & an older Dionysus myth.
Diabore: have to change the libra first
cyplix8: Can't steal from self
Costar_s: Think it's stuck from Self
goatprince: gotta clear it first
TXC2: SocraticMethod there are creatures that vomit instead of popping
Costar_s: yes
Diabore: yes it is
SocraticMethod: @TXC2 And thank gods we aren't one
hackingducks: @ScrapyardGhostTrain we can't even say they were two different stories. it's just theorized.
LordShadner: top of screen says back to clear
Diabore: @TXC2 if we were wed see nothing wrong with it
Wicker_Guide: the (<) button clears a gambit
TXC2: Remember chat: Greek mythology was built over the course of about 1000 years
LolCamAlpha: select maybe?
LolCamAlpha: whatever the equivalent of select is
SocraticMethod: It's the not-start/menu button
Wicker_Guide: it's the other small button to the left of Options/Menu
malsareus: Address your controller with a calm voice to open the second option menu
hackingducks: the last whimper :( every time
IviaRelle: They are *dying*, maybe it should sound sad.
SocraticMethod: Funny you should ask about fear of the gods ...
doubledbear: FF12 doesn't pass the "Does the dog die" muster
malsareus: oh we need that
Earthenone: check spells and technics
Izandai: Beehive wig.
malsareus: give Vaan the fuzzy miter
Cptasparagus: How dare the wolves be sad while dying
shurtal: if your miter is fuzzy, you're woodworking wrong
LolCamAlpha: Blizzara!
Didero: Curaga!
Izandai: Why is it called Magick?
Didero: gonna do so much healing
Izandai: And not Magic?
Dalrint: Is it this one or 10 where break kills flyers?
malsareus: FF own brand sorcery
KevinTheShark: Wait, was there an item that prevented sleep?
SocraticMethod: Because it's a valid alternate spelling
goatprince: because it's quirky :)
ThorSokar: someone translated it wrong 30 years ago and it stuck
TXC2: sounds more magical
Wicker_Guide: once we get into spoiler territory for the plot of this game I'd like to discuss Mt Bur-Omisace.
Leonhart321: Better question, why is it called maic with a c?
grgriffin3: It's just some quirked-up white magic
TheThirdTail: K is the most fantasy-themed letter
Wicker_Guide: because it seems an odd fit
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Because that's what it is in Ivalice. Why do Yanks call a railway a road?
Joalni: @TXC2 Like colour with a u.
grgriffin3: Heh, "Loxley" bow
Earthenone: kings dont block
malsareus: that seems a bad tradeoff
Punching_Bag: just block Kappa
malsareus: if you're blocking your losing Adam tells me
Feriority: Aleister Crowley added the 'k' to separate his stuff from stage magic
Earthenone: do they have any armor for sale?
malsareus: presumably there will be imperials up there
JaymieGamer: hi how r u?
Genie_M: quickenings if you got them?
malsareus: man Larsa must love what his brother has done with the place
Earthenone: yarr
Didero: Just look at Ashe, how could she possibly be more armored?
ipoddodd: mmmmmm bones
malsareus: @Didero with a fuzzy miter clearly
SocraticMethod: You've Got Bone Mail
TXC2: hello JaymieGamer welcome
Costar_s: I'm not past this part yet but I've been using Bone Mail without issue
JaymieGamer: its good for awhilee
Feriority: I hate it when I get unsolicited bone mail
Pharmacistjudge: note: do not send bones to mail time
hackingducks: I dunno why but "you've got bone mail" made me LUL
JaymieGamer: i just got my 4rth optional esper
TheThirdTail: I remember a dungeon where dark resist is good, but no idea where that falls in the story progression
LordShadner: how holy is the Empire? Kappa
JaymieGamer: bone mail is fine for awhile
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Immune to water sure would have been helpful against that flan. Kappa
malsareus: this empire is more into flying battleships that gods I think
SocraticMethod: Spammers are sending unsolicited baculums
koristi_: Booty Call evolved into Bone Mail
TXC2: is bone mail good for the soil?
LithelyUnshod: I caught that sneaky Black Books ref
malsareus: soil with bone mail resists sickles and scythes
Earthenone: 69 magick power!
Weagle subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 74 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Weagle! (Today's storm count: 9)
Squigel: is frans armour alot worse than everyone else's
BoatyMcBoatfaceJr: i always read it as "bone ham"
Didero: very little
Wicker_Guide: light armor is nearly always worse than equivalent level mystic or heavy armor
TheThirdTail: i can't remember why you'd want light armor over other types... i think it gives more max hp?
Earthenone: light armor is for speed i think?
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Max HP & evasion, I think?
Wicker_Guide: light armor has various random bonuses at various tiers, doesn't have a consistent theme the way heavy and mystic do
JaymieGamer: @TheThirdTail yea and heavy armor is consider metalic armor,, good to know actually
ThorSokar: what are... hand bombs? that seems counter productive
Wicker_Guide: grenades
Dalrint: I think th etwo cure spells on basch are to make him more like a paladin
Genie_M: regen in white magic sounds good
Cartographers_Ink: Man am I loving this Play it Forward with Graham playing FF12!
TheThirdTail: they're silly weapons in this... very random dmg iirc. basically just gambling
Cartographers_Ink: There is something really satisfying about the license board
Costar_s: Getting those White Magicks on Knight is pretty good
Cartographers_Ink subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 56 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Cartographers_Ink! (Today's storm count: 10)
MousseFilledCat: Yeah. I’d go Basch.
goatprince: basch having some healing is primo
LolCamAlpha: Yeah, I'd also go basch
Genie_M: regen and esuna
LolCamAlpha: Esuna on a dude is a good idea
goatprince: spreading out healing capability is lategadme Necessary
Wicker_Guide: yeah can turn knight into a second white mage
shurtal: Captain Basch fon Ronsenburg? Of Dalmasca?
TXC2: shurtal the very same
Wicker_Guide: don't listen to ondore's lies
doubledbear: I think those were already on the board and then get shuffled over when the espers get placed?
JaymieGamer: one thing i hate about esuna is that it dont heal doom and disease
JaymieGamer: need remedy for that
Wicker_Guide: yeah, that really caught me off guard @JaymieGamer
voren_chalco: For measuring if your sword will fit in a hole.
Wicker_Guide: I find Spellbreaker is really good for healers
JaymieGamer: they get 3 each so it makes since
TXC2: every time I here the word resplendent I think of ENN for some reason :p
thirsty_kitteh: the words "magic lore" have lost all meaning to my ears
TXC2: *hear
Diabore: so swift
lostluckDev: gotta go fast
TheThirdTail: *tips hat* M'Gick Lore
Dalrint: Well that wasn't very swift of you
BigDaddyBland87: swifty boy
Boiler_bot: nyoom
ThorSokar: composLove
Diabore: im guessing a lot
Costar_s: FIRE
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: CurseLit
JaymieGamer: @thirsty_kitteh the more magic lores the more magic damage and healing u do
LadyLockwood92: 'Ah you know, some people...they go to bed, they think they're safe. They wake up and they're on fire.'
SocraticMethod: @thirsty_kitteh Not much of a Vorthose, are you :D
JaymieGamer: hmm
JaymieGamer: so chat, how r yall
thirsty_kitteh: jaymiegamer: Oh, I get what it does. it's that the sound means nothing any more after G saying it a dozen times
Wicker_Guide: @thirsty_kitteh Magick Lore Magiclore Magi Clore My Agi Clores
Didero: I spent too long at work today and now my brain is empty, sowatching this stream and making dumb remarks in chat is a nice no-effort way to spend the evening, so thanks Graham and Chat lrrHEART
thirsty_kitteh: my coleslaw!
beowuuf: lrrSHINE
JaymieGamer: @Wicker_Guide i stopped using ethers after i figured, lets use charge for all 6 ppl. Lol it helped with the fight i just had with zalera.

Wicker_Guide: Fire is just a natural result of oppression

Wicker_Guide: lrrSPOOP
1fairy2boots: Moonwalking sprite
BigDaddyBland87: They've gained sentience!
RocknGrohlNerd: he is going for a chat with the other one
creasehearst: perhaps it's a cardboard cutout on those stands they use at shooting stands?
kumatsu: sorry we're burned down your village, here's some imperialism
LordManiMani: "here's some gold"
Pharmacistjudge: Should I take offense to that?
Leonhart321: Noooooooooooo, couldn't be
ChrisGMiller: "some of those that work forces...."
CaKnuckleguy: AJAB
Didero: And this is why it's called a fantasy game
Boiler_bot: All Judges Are Bastards
SocraticMethod: At least they are better than FFTA judges
ScrapyardGhostTrain: "I am. The LAW!" - Gabranth, probably.
Earthenone: its almost like every judge being masked is a metaphor
Snowcookies: sounds like cops
goatprince: imagine,,,,,,, Empire bad?
Wicker_Guide: does that sound like the way an imperialist rationalist scientifically advanced empire would be have?
Athelgar: *gasp* AJAB?
A_Dub888: "I am..... THE LAW!" - some Archadean Judge probably
Pharmacistjudge: That's it. Game losses for all of you!
Didero: Oh, Anastasis is gonna die, isn't he?
LordManiMani: burn archades to the ground
Earthenone: do you think the nu mu's were colaberators? none of them seem to be hurt
Wicker_Guide: I think they're bystanders
Boiler_bot: Sad Relj
kumatsu: @Pharmacistjudge someone fake-yelled judge in the store forgetting I was there last night 🤣
Masslost: So when does “what if god was one us” start to play asking for a friend
Pharmacistjudge: besmirch the name of judges everywhere, how dare y'all
Squigel: oh its that guy
Squigel: from that one cutscene
lostluckDev: Swift!
Wicker_Guide: I can't look at this dude without seeing the Old Ivory King from DS2
BrowneePoints: I thought he said Fragrant Princess for a second
LordManiMani: the cruelty is the point! lrrAWESOME
kumatsu: why is this judge's helmet the Bloodborne hat?
ThorSokar: suddenly Voice Over....
doubledbear: Oh no! ...that guy
MurphEP: Maybe he's just sleeping?
RocknGrohlNerd: oh no is he okey?
Didero: Dude's got a Stand
LordManiMani: a jhoast! lrrSPOOP
CaKnuckleguy: I wonder if he can play Through the Fire and Flames on it
TehAmelie: the stone/s on that guy!
LadyLockwood92: Suddenly seeing why Gaius Van Baelsar has the whole thing with Gods.
AugmentingPath: ^
Boiler_bot: Okay dood
GDwarble: @LadyLockwood92 I was just thinking that
flagonmaster: this is some shakespearean nonsense
kumatsu: @LadyLockwood92 grumble grumble something about friendship grumble
cassaclyzm: Hark!
Lord_Durin: That sword is like... a curvy version of Lament from Destiny
northos: how very glib
Athelgar: this dude enjoys his job way too much
Punching_Bag: How glib
Dalrint: He is a little intense.
TXC2: Pride goeth before destruction there judge
GDwarble: How very glib, and do you *believe* in Dalmasca?
samu_btdp1985: Hark the herald angels sing
Wicker_Guide: that actor had FUN
LordManiMani: eh. I miss Ghis
Pharmacistjudge: these floor judges
doubledbear: cool speech judgeman
Diabore: 3 more judges
Ravynn: Quite the Gaius precursor
Boiler_bot: Juicy
Pharmacistjudge: just getting hammered
LadyLockwood92: I don't know about you guys, but I *do* believe in Eorzea.
Didero: This dude only became a judge JUST to spout this nonsense, didn't he?
LordManiMani: Non Magister Judges
1fairy2boots: That judge really loves to hear themself talking, huh?
ranknullity: they're from a lower circuit
BigDaddyBland87: lrrHAM
kumatsu: ah yes, there was a judge call next to a Black Hole
Squigel: yeah they do parking violations mostly
LordManiMani: @ranknullity lolol
Wicker_Guide: So, they don't properly explain this, but the villain heavies are "Judge Magister"s while regular judges are just elite mooks
Pharmacistjudge: please do not respond to a deck check with a katana
TehAmelie: ooh, a ring
kumatsu: @Pharmacistjudge what about at Kamigawa prerelease
LordManiMani: this whole court is out of order!
Wicker_Guide: @Pharmacistjudge I feel like that would fall under unsportsmanlike conduct?
TehAmelie: that's primo stealin'
ThorSokar: Now it's time to ruin this guy's day/life/etc
thirsty_kitteh: you could probably just mist him?
LordManiMani: about to ruin this man's whole career
Pharmacistjudge: @Wicker_Guide just don't ask Fezzik
Athelgar: i wish there was an efficient way to set up steal gambits that had some kind of end trigger
Didero: Did Fran turn kicking into a ranged attack?
groulux: Moon Power?
jonnykefka: on pc there is apparently a mod that is literally just that
Wicker_Guide: @Athelgar the devs have explicitly stated they wanted to keep the player from doing this, to keep steal from being too strong. Not sure I agree with their choice but it's a thing
LadyLockwood92: Fran's got the Long Range materia.
GDwarble: Penelo can...stop time?
Boiler_bot: @Athelgar I find Foe=100% HP -> Steal works well.
GDwarble: And shatter reality
ThorSokar: haha, this is very Skies of Arcadia suddenly
TheThirdTail: Penelo really likes to do some spins in these
TXC2: Didero we she is tall
Wicker_Guide: Who's got Idina Menzel stuck in their head now?
TehAmelie: turns out, they specifically didn't want to automate stealing too much
Athelgar: @Wicker_Guide ya, makes sense
jonnykefka: Gotta say my fave level 3 quickening is definitely Ashe's
LadyLockwood92: @ThorSokar I miss that game. Really wish Sega would do something with it if they can.
TehAmelie: they presumably being the battle designers
Diabore: see ya judge
Earthenone: only 6? baltheir can do more than that solo :P
CaKnuckleguy: Moist
ThorSokar: I still have my copy LadyLockwood92, it's still fun
Athelgar: @Boiler_bot true, but if youre in a group of 4+ it can get to be a problem
jonnykefka: You beat the Ring Wyrm right? And the flan. This guy's a chump
LadyLockwood92: @ThorSokar I don't doubt it ^^
Didero: It's almost as if Judges are heavily armored with all that blocking
Orxolon: i caught up with the vods,now i'm ready to join the action
LithelyUnshod: A Darth Maul?
TXC2: hello Orxolon welcome
Wicker_Guide: a silly fantasy double-sword
TehAmelie: oops, i quipped too soon
TXC2: son
Orxolon: @TXC2 hi!,thanks!
Boiler_bot: Jibblies
LordManiMani: not to mention FOXDIE...
Didero: Just cast Raise on him, easy
Earthenone: and i thought they smelled bad on the outside
Wicker_Guide: he tried to Wolverine himself
HorusFive: "I thought they smelt bad on the outside"

LadyLockwood92: @Feriority Like that Dril tweet
TXC2: maunding ?
northos: maundering, eh
garion99: i always see him as benico del toro
TehAmelie: oh, that thing was a Dril tweet? i've been trying to remember it for days
TehAmelie: the thing about disappearing in a dramatic dust cloud and then they're just dead
RocknGrohlNerd: gottem G
LordManiMani: nothing bad EVER came out of a laboratory named Draklor
SocraticMethod: Balthier is really reading the script forward
TXC2: this women here is clearly Al-cid's Zhu li
LadyLockwood92: @TehAmelie 'So long suckers' I yell as I rev up my motorcycle. Once the smoke cloud clears I'm lying completely dead on the ground. Or words to that effect.
thirsty_kitteh: socraticmethod: I keep saying it! and I keep being shown right! :P
LordManiMani: yeeeaaaaaaaahhhhh
TehAmelie: aah, thanks
KeytarCat: Is the headcanon that Vaan is making the deez nutz jokes?
KevinTheShark: But what about the shared dream of women?
Easilycrazyhat: Yoda never had shades that cool
ThorSokar: so he's the one guy on the planet with sunglasses?
CaKnuckleguy: My nuts, they're deez
Orxolon: Balthier should be reprised by James Masters
SpacePotato01: is he talking about unimatrix zero?
Wicker_Guide: @KevinTheShark he thinks that's him unfortunately
SK__Ren: First Nanomachines and now Sunglasses? This IS Metal Gear
northos: @ThorSokar we don't see a lot of Rozarrians, maybe they're common there
Didero: Just follow the signs saying 'Archades', easy
TXC2: Orxolon yes
taeasakura: more importantly, why is he wearing sunglasses in the rain?
Masslost: Wait did the game just pull a csi Miami?
ThorSokar: fair, northos
KevinTheShark: @wicker_guide damn, you're right
DarkAbyssKeeper: Arcades? 1GWU
taeasakura: Watch out for walls
taeasakura: and defenders
LithelyUnshod: I really like Fran's VO
Didero: Road trip!
Boiler_bot: I like everyone's VO.
CururuGuasu: Road trip!
TXC2: !fran
LRRbot: Fran, like all viera, is intended to have an Icelandic accent. "Marquis" has two different pronunciations, the one used in the game is valid.
RocknGrohlNerd: @DarkAbyssKeeper yes 3/5 vigilance flying etc.
Boiler_bot: I like Fran's a lot too.
Mangledpixel: the cutesy flat-design town icons on top of the traditional fantasy map is sure a choice
TXC2: yeah that was made around episode 3 ish :p
MurphEP: It does double duty
goatprince: (no)
LadyLockwood92: Scandinavian Viera has been consistent in 14 too.
Earthenone: no
goatprince: (not right now)
Didero: Maybe read the description of the stone?
Wicker_Guide: I found it hilarious that the most popular mod in the modding community isn't the nude mod(s) or clothing mods, isn't any QoL fix, it's changing the ":)" icons in the talk prompt
Leonhart321: You could, but you shouldn't
Earthenone: i bashed my head against it and won, but it would not be good stream content
Boiler_bot: Really Optional Boss
DarkAbyssKeeper: I prefer the pronunciation that sounds like a diminuitive of "Mark". Especially for de Saad.
Easilycrazyhat: No time to dilly dally. There's prayin' to do.
taeasakura: that should have been the zodiac spear Kappa
Orxolon: -"you cleaned the bodies real quick" -"yeah we wanted to pray"
Earthenone: ethers are 222 :P
Snowcookies: 53 gil is more like 53 cent
SK__Ren: Alot of chests have a rare spawn with a good item and 99% of the time its trash
SocraticMethod: Fran's VA is Nicole Fantl:
Mr_Horrible: can we buy good taste with 53 gil?
Wicker_Guide: @taeasakura I mean, there are vital spells and technicks lying around like that
lirazel64: I mean, it's not nothing.
LadyLockwood92: It's one Ether, Graham. What could it cost? 53 gil?
Octonomicon: I'm always a bit let down that we don't get more non-Humes in the party after playing Tactics Advance.
Diabore: yknow you used to buy a lot with 53 gil, cant do that now, too many cameras
Didero: Travel is afoot!
ranknullity: several feet, in fact
TehAmelie: for science reasons i went looking through every mod for this game and found like 25 clothes mods for Vaan and 0 nude mods. which is fascinating
shurtal: i like to think the chests with gil are just, short hand for the PC just ...scrounging money off the ground
Leonhart321: @Mr_Horrible In this game? Unlikely
SpacePotato01: everyone is so sad. I bet the rain is just people crying too.
Didero: shoot distant enemies, got it
Gekyouryuu: suddenly we're sherlock holmes and the game is afoot
Diabore: seems more like youre in evening
taeasakura: no we are in evening, graham
Mr_Horrible: no, this looks more like midday, Graham
malsareus: We're at the Anger stage right now
Mr_Horrible: damn, beat me to it LUL
SK__Ren: Thanks for the tutorial nugget, *checks watch* how many hours into the game?
DarkAbyssKeeper: Do not eat the souls of the close. Only eat the souls of the distant.
doubledbear: The fact that crucial items are in the same looking treasure boxes but you constantly get stuff like 53 gil makes me wonder if anyone gave up on checking treasure boxes for their entire run
Boiler_bot: Sorry Relj
Diabore: @Mr_Horrible chat is a hive mind
Boiler_bot: Yeah...
Earthenone: couldent afford the pheonix down i guess
LadyLockwood92: How frustratingly vague.
malsareus: oh yeah I hate "disease"
Boiler_bot: Phoenix Down recovers from KO, not death, tbf
Feriority: You don't want to get down with the sickness
goatprince: 'are ya down with it, son?'
EvilBadman: saying that in the same tone as "there must be a hunt near by" got me good
DarkAbyssKeeper: There's a sickness called ligma.
Wicker_Guide: Disease the ailment sucks. Thankfully you won't deal with it for at least another 10 hours or so
grgriffin3: Is there a sickness called ailment?
TehAmelie: the Argentinian suffered from an illness called "disease"
MacSquizzy: This is the worst remix of that frog on a log song
Orxolon: and there's a song called get down with the sickness
Earthenone: support small businesses
Gekyouryuu: is there a sickness called ailment?
taeasakura: moogles are so tiny in this game
djalternative: there's a sickness called "down with the"
malsareus: [disease] sucls to get seek [treatment] as soon as you can
TXC2: "I ain't your disease, aliment!"
Diabore: theyre small and easily missed
Wicker_Guide: the cartographer moogles are not on the map or otherwise called out, which is deeply annoying
SocraticMethod: Down the with the『 Disease 』
Mr_Horrible: love to Lurk In A Rift
Orxolon: oh,we huntin'
goatprince: nah
Wicker_Guide: this is pretty doable
TXC2: malsareus that sounded like a lonely hearts ad :p
Wicker_Guide: the Trickster hunt, however, is an absolute pain
malsareus: It's fine, we have our ablative Vaan
Mr_Horrible: some things are just lil pranks from God
MurphEP: But this one
grgriffin3: Sometimes, humans administer tests too
ThorSokar: sometimes life just sucks
Mr_Horrible: lil jokie jokes
TXC2: !addquote (Graham) [now] Not everything is a test from God.
LRRbot: New quote #8459: "Not everything is a test from God." —Graham [2023-02-08]
TehAmelie: the words "the trickster hunt" gives me weird Joaquin Phoenix's Joker flashbacks
Earthenone: sheilded armor is the autocast protect stuff, yeah
DarkAbyssKeeper: Conversely, everything is a test from some deity or other. This time it was a test from the Why God of Disasters.
beowuuf: testeez nuts.. i mean
taeasakura: Pocket Sand!
TehAmelie: (the weird part is i haven't even seen the movie)
TXC2: TehAmelie most people haven't
Wicker_Guide: I have to say, for all the complaints I have about this game there is something deeply satisfying about piloting a walking sword-blender of a hero party
ThorSokar: so regen just goes till it's done? and doesn't stop when you're in town?
taeasakura: Time to retrieve some ferals
thirsty_kitteh: Now I'm wondering what the highest percentge of global population the most watched movie govers
goatprince: Big Cat
beowuuf: have you seen the film taxi driver? then you pretty much did MiniK
AugmentingPath: Scouerl
malsareus: who gave that dog a gun?
Didero: Oh no, Ashe is stoned
Wicker_Guide: Mindflayer Cat
Leonhart321: We're about to....tame retrieve it?
LolCamAlpha: I.... do not like that face.
shurtal: another name for this place is Ish Sah
doubledbear: I assumed it was a dog since, retriever
thirsty_kitteh: wicker_guide: nyaaaaaa *tasty psy*
Prop_PT: so we get the Shiva at Home? whats next on the Agenda for our brave party of Adventurers (and Vaan)
taeasakura: Ashe is turning into a pebble
EvilBadman: "I got a rock!"
SocraticMethod: Squid-dog
doubledbear: But nope, cactus headed cat
Squigel: mind-lash
Squigel: mind lashin
DarkAbyssKeeper: You stole a rock from the thing that's trying to turn you into rock.
TehAmelie: ooh now i get it, Vaan is the Zoidberg of the gang
UncannyJimjams subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 58 months!
UncannyJimjams: not far off 5 years now! where does the time go?
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, UncannyJimjams! (Today's storm count: 12)
Wicker_Guide: @Prop_PT yep, now we're off to the witch's castle... I mean the evil laboratory
Prop_PT: the long trek to Archa-Deez Nutz
Earthenone: there is no response, it is only a rock
TXC2: thirsty_kitteh based on box office, the most seen movie is either Avengers endgame, Avatar, or Titanic
Gekyouryuu: is that a displacer beast?
UncannyJimjams: I'm quite late to the party today, how's frozen hellscape going?
doubledbear: I did this hunt last goes places if i recall
TehAmelie: this looks like a job for Esuna
TXC2: UncannyJimjams quite well
Prop_PT: has Esuna been unlocked yet?
shurtal: nap attack
Greendrag13: Nap party!
hackingducks: gotta give that crew some coffee
Didero: Can you kill the Retriever first? It seems almost dead
Orxolon: nobody saw this ending coming
malsareus: that retriever sure knows how to do CC
UncannyJimjams: stoned, silenced, and sleeping, the universal mood
TehAmelie: i was hella surprised the first time i lost to a total party Petrify in a FF
thirsty_kitteh: txc2: mmm, but I suspect a lot of things got watched years later. It *could* be some cut of A New Hope, or frnaly something I've never heard of because there's several billion people I don't share a common cultural point with
TehAmelie: and probably four or five times after that
doubledbear: any sleep imune or petrify immune accesories?
Wicker_Guide: yes and yes but they're both later game
doubledbear: Yeah i meant in his inventory right now
TXC2: thirsty_kitteh yeah there's probably some Chinese or Hindi movie that a billion non white people have seen
Boiler_bot: Mist?
Mr_Horrible: ah the classic curse of Status Effect Fights: it gets to 10% and then all the ailments catch up to you
TheThirdTail: Wow, not often that the game directly responds to you
ThorSokar: yikes
Mattmitchell45: It was readying its Rake
jonnykefka: can always overkill with a quickening
jonnykefka: that bar comes back fast
Diabore: if you rely on the quickening where will you be when its gone?
Mattmitchell45: You are also playing on SPEEEEED
TehAmelie: 1 billion people tuned into Baywatch on weekly television. i feel some movie has to be able to do better
Mattmitchell45: So status effects go brrrr
Wicker_Guide: there's a lot less status effect prevention in this game than other final fantasy games
Boiler_bot: I like that about FF12. Status magic actually matters, and is effective.
DarkAbyssKeeper: The proverbial, utterly hypothetical, royal "you".
Wicker_Guide: like, there's no way to be immune to KO effects
Prop_PT: some well places accessories can do wonders for these fights
TehAmelie: some fights it seems a ½ speed mode would be good
Prop_PT: like anti-silence on your WHM
QuantumTwitch: you can and you are are generally two diffrent things aswell
Whattheheckarethese: I mean, group-wide effects are strong.
KeytarCat: @DarkAbyssKeeper Third-person indefinite "you"
UncannyJimjams: watching this playthrough has really given me the itch to go back and play FF7R, I wanted to complete it and Intergrade before the next one came out but I wasn't in the mood for it
DarkAbyssKeeper: That sounds suspiciously like real grammar.
Mattmitchell45: It is funny when you accidentally stumble upon a Hunt target while grinding in fast mode
Diabore: @UncannyJimjams dont worry, you have years
goatprince: but what would you name that dog?
SmashTCG: are there plans for a restream of the nintendo direct?
goatprince: (some of them, yeah)
Whattheheckarethese: Mostly...
Mr_Horrible: "Inviting Ruin"
TXC2: he said, hubristically
Diabore: @SmashTCG likely not, there is watch and play this week
TXC2: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Watch + Play (Graham and Alex are prepared... are you? It's Garbage Day!) at Wed 01:00 PM PST (41m from now).
MurphEP: Says who
Diabore: what the schedule says
Mattmitchell45: Hahahaha
Ravynn: Uhoh
UncannyJimjams: @diabore I hope it's not years but I am resigned to that likely being the case
LolCamAlpha: oh
Earthenone: watch and play is like nintendo direct in the hustleverse right?
Didero: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Watch + Play (Graham and Alex are prepared... are you? It's Garbage Day!) at Wed 01:00 PM PST (40m from now).
Wicker_Guide: mostly you can go into the caverns, but snake-hunt and a number of other things in there will murder you
doubledbear: Watch + direct
BigDaddyBland87: ooops
JaymieGamer: Later, i was lurking, going back to FFXII
josh___something: huh

ThorSokar: uh-oh, someone's in trouble
TehAmelie: solution: make James come in for W+P :D
josh___something: !blamejames
Didero: And James is very conveniently away, suspicious :p
JaymieGamer: yes? Thats my real name. Lol
MacSquizzy: Ben mentioned earlier that there's a sponsored stream today that isn't on the schdule either, sounds like maybe there's some shenanigans afoot
Mr_Horrible: Beej just vibrating progressively faster and faster
UncannyJimjams: no Watch + Play? welp, time for FF12 lol
Diabore: have i presented a can of worms i shouldnt have?
LordZarano: James is on holiday, ask Paul
JaymieGamer: lol
ThorSokar: I was excited for more absolutely TRASH mobile games :-(
EvilBadman: @MacSquizzy that one is, it's the AFK before AFK

JaymieGamer: ok byee
Earthenone: !schedule
LRRbot: Want to know what's coming up? Check out for an interactive schedule, or for a Google Calendar version.
Mattmitchell45: Have James cover for you

TXC2: called What on Earth
DarkAbyssKeeper: Stick Carter?
BrowneePoints: MONIKERS!

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Watch + Play (Graham and Alex are prepared... are you? It's Garbage Day!) at Wed 01:00 PM PST (38m from now).
goatprince: snake hole time
Whattheheckarethese: Snake hunt?
Earthenone: nalbina fortress?
Prop_PT: oh Snek
LadyLockwood92: Watch out for snakes!
Earthenone: !findquote snake
LRRbot: Quote #8275: "The slippery snake of knowledge is coming for you." —Heather [2022-10-09]
Diabore: snakes in the snake hole? preposterous
DarkAbyssKeeper: Did it have to be snakes?
UncannyJimjams: is that a euphemism for something?
TehAmelie: we're going to the Snakehole LOunge?
azraeldagda: Snake Hole Lounge!
doubledbear: i don't recall the lvls of the monsters in the snake hole
TXC2: snakes dont have holes, they have cloacas Kappa
TehAmelie: damn, good drift
Prop_PT: if you are looking for the hunt its best to go in from the Estersand
DarkAbyssKeeper: @TXC2 What do you call the mouth? Checkmate.
doubledbear: weren't they mid 30's?
Diabore: yup
TXC2: DarkAbyssKeeper the mouthaca Kappa
Prop_PT: Westersand MyB
thegreatwyrdling: Wow these maps look like the final fantasy MMO maps.
Wicker_Guide: zertinian caverns are BIIIIG
Diabore: caverns is a BIG zone
TehAmelie: what if you go through Ampersand
DarkAbyssKeeper: @TXC2 Not the cloaouth?
Wicker_Guide: yep
Prop_PT: bottom left
Whattheheckarethese: Not yet explored, yes.
Wicker_Guide: the part of the map you haven't explored
Wicker_Guide: @thegreatwyrdling same creative director and much of the same team
Diabore: doing multiple thousands points of damage to things with 400~ hp
Orxolon: "Hey,i'm working here!"
RocknGrohlNerd: big chains incomming
QuantumTwitch: vaal is out again, in my head cannon he is a brash that runs around collecting money for the others work wo doing anything :)
KeytarCat: Heh, basch with the hand ax that hits for 2k or 200
Wicker_Guide: @doubledbear range from high 20's (estersand) to low forties, excluding the superbosses
UncannyJimjams: oh my god, that's what I've been trying to put my finger on, the gambit system feels like mmo raiding to me
DarkAbyssKeeper: "They're weak to wind!" "Yes, and a stiff one can kill them, calm down."
Boiler_bot: I like how many enemies are weak to Aero. Another neglected spell in FF, normally.
LordManiMani: RIP
Diabore: ah well, kind of expected it with the confusion
BigDaddyBland87: lrrEFF
thegreatwyrdling: @Wicker_Guide that makese sense.
Mattmitchell45: ;_: Sad but understand
Wicker_Guide: so it goes
LadyLockwood92: No worries.
Didero: So PiF is just going long to cover for it? Kappa
ghyllnox: Ohno
LadyLockwood92: Such is the way of things.
Easilycrazyhat: Understandable
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Curse you, James!
TXC2: nope two weeks ago
Pteraspidomorphi: It was two weeks ago
BigDaddyBland87: it was 2 weeks
Wicker_Guide: time is an illusion
bytecaster: There is a way
Earthenone: time remains linear
Gekyouryuu: it was the ppr week
TXC2: time is a harsh mistress
Mattmitchell45: Two Weeks Since Apes
ghyllnox: I didn't see one last week
goatprince: it's been 5 years, graham,,,,,,,,
ThorSokar: cancelled for PPR, right?
control_rig: hashtagBlameJames
DarkAbyssKeeper: Depends if you count PPR weeks as existing during time.
Leonhart321: PPR week doesn't count as an actual week
Syntheticuh: hey g, have you ever played the sequel to this? i haven't but was wondering if it was worth picking up since ive been enjoying watching you play this
Prop_PT: if you are ever unsure its March 2020
MurphEP: The mobile games have been so good (bad)
doubledbear: Yup, still march 2020
Diabore: @Syntheticuh its a tactics system so if you like that id say go for it
SK__Ren: Watch + Play will return *James Bond Riff plays*
Whattheheckarethese: Nope. But good luck.
Sethalidos: Graham not sure if you saw but MDickie has a new game out
thegreatwyrdling: Stand against the evil! (Watch and pray)
Syntheticuh: @Diabore oh i do love tactics!
control_rig: March 2020 has been the longest month in history
SK__Ren: Oh look. Chryssalids
TehAmelie: maybe just keep one or two of the underleveled boys?
TXC2: these some Starship Troopers looking bugs
doubledbear: lvl 38, yup i was right
DarkAbyssKeeper: Scytho Mantis? Wasn't that a metal gear enemy?
goatprince: if you see the skill 'cannibalize' go off, maybe run from the mantis enemies
LadyLockwood92: I know I shouldn't* be surprised when I see stuff I recognise from 14, but it is definitely going to keep happening.
Diabore: basch out here styling
Wicker_Guide: So, we're ready to fight the Archaeoavises, right? lrrBEEJ
Diabore: 840xp? got damn
TXC2: I wonder if more stuff in FF14 is from this then FF13
Earthenone: ashe has a wet katana
Didero: Time to spit on 'em!
TehAmelie: just hope we don't meet the brain bug
BusTed: floabcSmug
Diabore: moist katana?
josh___something: Moist katana, then
ThorSokar: would you prefer a moist katana?
doubledbear: Damp katana
Mangledpixel: damp sword
TehAmelie: don't kill that guy, he drops a moist katana
DarkAbyssKeeper: A Wet Weeb-Blade.
control_rig: Dripping Katana
doubledbear: dripping is worse
Wicker_Guide: remember Basch's weapon has a really wide damage range
Whattheheckarethese: I am a little sad that water never upgrades, so you just start to ingore water weakness.
TXC2: dripping with what? :p
ThorSokar: or perhaps a soggy katana?
josh___something: Drenched katana
thirsty_kitteh: I feel that we may still be slightly underlevelled for this space
doubledbear: nope still bad
SK__Ren: Moist Katana?
DarkAbyssKeeper: Gushing Katana
Whattheheckarethese: Give it time.
UncannyJimjams: benginBonk
Leonhart321: Damp Katana
Wicker_Guide: @Whattheheckarethese agree. There are enemies that use advanced versions, but no player. Seems like a good fit for the Red Mage maybe?
Diabore: @LoadingReadyRun so chat has offerend up moist katana and dripping katana as alternatives
TXC2: slick katana ?
andysoo89: Leaky katana
Leonhart321: Glistening Katana
RocknGrohlNerd: drenched katana
doubledbear: just gets worse
Didero: soggy stab stick
Amras0x00: pool noodle.
QuantumTwitch: maby have a glance at bashes gambits
Diabore: none of us are free from sin
BigDaddyBland87: hydrated katana
DarkAbyssKeeper: Moist Weeblade

Gekyouryuu: aquatana
control_rig: Puzzles!
aNormalJohn: Isn't that the weapon Tidus used from FFX?
Didero: "DM, I stab the large boulder with my dagger"
Boiler_bot: Hmmm
Costar_s: Remember to Hydrate Katana
josh___something: uhmm...
TXC2: yes this is exactly how quicksand works :p
HorusFive: That sinkhole was a vital part of the ecosystem
RocknGrohlNerd: @TXC2 biblicaly acurate quicksand
doubledbear: Silly Graham, Kites isn't here
TXC2: RocknGrohlNerd :D
Gekyouryuu: sorry, kytes isn't a party member in this game
Didero: Vaan's kleptomania senses are tingling
Boiler_bot: Shoot with a bow or gun maybe?
Krektogar: just one, as a treat?
Wicker_Guide: Biiiig Scorpion Stretch
DarkAbyssKeeper: Did you equip the Kite Sail?
Joalni: Good pull
Earthenone: canabalize!
TehAmelie: the only good bug is a dead bug
Andymonium: I think I remember this part of Starship Troopers...
Diabore: what level is it now?
UncannyJimjams: now we will have a climactic bridge battle in 3 parts
Whattheheckarethese: Consume friend, become strong.
BusTed: monch
Boiler_bot: Huh
goatprince: it's level basically doubled I think
thirsty_kitteh: get the girls?
goatprince: it's permanent
ThorSokar: that seems problematic
Wicker_Guide: until reload
Whattheheckarethese: Unless you reload the area.
Leonhart321: That's permenant, yes
HorusFive: Lasts as long as the other guy is dead?
SK__Ren: Don't worry, Basch is tanking it
Greendrag13: Devour 10!
SocraticMethod: "kills one enemy within a range of 6 and absorbs its remaining HP as well as raising the user's own level by 20%"
Boiler_bot: I guess Aquaga would be useful here.
Diabore: yup, it healed enough for he to survive an hit
DarkAbyssKeeper: Luckily you have like, a whole pheonix wing.
Whattheheckarethese: Oooh, poison will kill it.
ThorSokar: this guy hits like a truck
hackingducks: he's actually got a whole phoenix he just keeps plucking
Didero: Yay, Lady Stabs-Alot is back
Diabore: 11 basch? really?
BusTed: narsty
DarkAbyssKeeper: Bring in the moist blade.
Feriority: @DarkAbyssKeeper Somewhere there's a plucked phoenix being called a man
Didero: I thought Fran had Raise
SK__Ren: Basch is chunking these guys. Keeping him sounds like a good plan
Diabore: why did fran cast raise?
UncannyJimjams: yeees big bunny lady
Whattheheckarethese: @Diabore Balthier died.
Diabore: oh
Diabore: i c
DarkAbyssKeeper: @DarkAbyssKeeper Diogenes and the Self Cooking Man.
Whattheheckarethese: ff12, you can cast spells (including cure) on people who are out-of-combat and mass spells effect everyone.
doubledbear: At a certain point i just kept penelo my white/time mage in the party at all times and swap out the other 2 as needed but now penelo is like 5 levels over everyone else lol.
Whattheheckarethese: Which is just super neat.
Whattheheckarethese: Oooh.
Andymonium: idk what's diamond armlet with you?
goatprince: not as important in this version
Diabore: oh, better chest drops
Bruceski: Oh, this is a can of worms
mwlsn: Sword: a device for moving rocks
Wicker_Guide: improves item drop rate/gil gain for chests
Feriority: It sounds like better chest drops but mostly it doesn't do that
Whattheheckarethese: Very useful if you do trail mode. Otherwise... eh?
BrindleBoar: changes the loot
Boiler_bot: Different chest drops
richard_ermen: Oh, are we going into overtime?
goatprince: original version: better loot in chests! this version: more Gil or hunks of rust in chests.
MurphEP: If you just reach farther into the chest, you get better iterms?
Feriority: Some chests have good stuff with it, most chests have knots of rust
Costar_s: If a chest has a 5% chance to have a rare item, then you'll have a 10% chance of getting a rarer item
Bruceski: Chests have random loot tables, the Diamond Armlet access a separate table for every chest.
Prop_PT: turns mediocre chests into better stuff and good stuff into Rust
Greendrag13: I was reading about it on the wiki and it's... a mess?
goatprince: I wouldn't
SocraticMethod: Only effective on part leader
Prop_PT: yeah its a TRAP
SocraticMethod: party*
Boiler_bot: Hope you like knots of rust!
Bruceski: It used to be "get a guide",, in this edition most of them are junk or single-use explosives except for one zone which has amazing things as rare finds
Whattheheckarethese: *useful.
Diabore: @SocraticMethod ashe is party leader right now
TXC2: what's the martial art they're black belts in? I reckon it's Tae Kwon Do
Orxolon: what changed that we couldn't get here before?
SocraticMethod: @SocraticMethod Just a precaution
BrindleBoar: carebuers
UncannyJimjams: Gammera, a friend to all the children
Orxolon: oh,too big
Diabore: our level, thats what changed
Feriority: It's handy to put it on someone who isn't party leader, so you mostly get normal drops but can swap leaders to get armlet drops instead
Orxolon: gotacha
TXC2: Orxolon we're higher levelled now
Costar_s: The Diamond Armlet is only really worth it in the end-game secret dungeons.
Orxolon: gotcha*
MurphEP: Certified freak
SK__Ren: I do enjoy how they try and get creative with alternative references to teh same monster. Gorgimera is a Gorgon Chimera aka a Cockatrice.
Ryxiene shuffles in to chill while sick 😷 <3
Earthenone: neat!
SmashTCG: Nice!

DarkAbyssKeeper: Beej and Heather!? What are their Nintendo credentials?
Leonhart321: All according to plan "But this was a last minute cha-" ALL ACCORDING TO PLAN

MurphEP: He dabbles
Diabore: @Invitare on and off
Leonhart321: Huh, must be a recent thing
JAGxTERRA: Beej is lukewarm on Nintendo.
Feriority: I always thought he was more of a sega guy, he's been celebrating sonic's 30th anniversary for years
Firewhiskers: Is Nintendo the one who makes playing cards?
Didero: I'd always feel worried with this Diamond Bracelet that I'd be missing out on stuff that's supposed to be in chests
Leonhart321: @Firewhiskers That's a deep cut, and I respect that
Diabore: 12 whole gil
thirsty_kitteh: firewhiskers: yeah, they put a gaming side business on their light railway
Whattheheckarethese: Yep.
Prop_PT: and now you see why Diamond armlet is bad
doubledbear: Nintendon't is what Sega do right?
EvilBadman: That could have been 11 gil! A 10% improvement
Diabore: can we fight dinosaur now?
Andymonium: if i remember right, one of the updates in Zodiac edition is that gil values in treasure chests no longer get buffed by the armlet
evilspoons983: so it was this week's stream highlight reel that I realized I'd literally never seen any of FF12 except cutscenes
Diabore: or did we already?
Costar_s: Lawd those bird men were hoofing it
SocraticMethod: Armlet does not affect gil amount
Firewhiskers: @thirsty_kitteh AT least they aren't in the hotel business anymore
samu_btdp1985: whats our next hunt?
TXC2: "into the mines!"
doubledbear: Back in the caverns? what is this minecraft?
Costar_s: don't worry chat, there are dinos that are mad
LordZarano: If you're wanting for Alex stream, he played a bunch of demos on his homestream last night. The VoD should still be on his channel
Diabore: !homestream
LRRbot: Crew homestreams: Adam: | Alex: | Ben Ulmer: | Cameron: | Cori and Ian: | Heather: | James: | Jeremy White: | Kathleen: | Matt Wiggins: | Serge: | Wheeler: | Nelson:
Prop_PT: I have a License board Question. If I give someone an Esper then reset their board, does it release the Esper for someone else to use?
Orxolon: do we know the spell berserk?
Earthenone: @Prop_PT it does!
Diabore: @Prop_PT yes
Wicker_Guide: @Prop_PT Yes
Prop_PT: ok cool
SocraticMethod: @Andymonium Yeah, Armlet gives you 95% chance of Knot of Rust, 5% of rare item for item chests
Costar_s: I didn't know that it reset; that's very handy :O
richard_ermen: Buer?? Now we're lotting Archdemons??
Costar_s: cut down them rocks
Costar_s: they know what they did
EvilBadman: It also lets you reset the Quickenings, as some classes have things locked bhind them and you can only do three quickenings per character
mwlsn: Quest: retrieve 10 buer asses
goatprince: nah, first time you come in here the rocks aren't even present
DarkAbyssKeeper: Cannot confirm that you aren't, but not about that at least.
TXC2: I mean, aren't we all going mad?
Andymonium: oh that's where the boom boom lives
ThorSokar: Oh, so are you just locked out of this place until you complete some other event, or is it just leave and come back?
Whattheheckarethese: Thank god for autosave.
Diabore: oh we should not be here
Earthenone: the mist is thick here
Whattheheckarethese: Yep!
Diabore: welp
Costar_s: Each screen transition is an auto-save
Diabore: i tried
Whattheheckarethese: You're going to need it.
Boiler_bot: Hmmmmm
Didero: Eh, what's the worst that can happen?
Costar_s: Very handy in this version
Prop_PT: hows your ranged battle?
Andymonium: garuda?
Whattheheckarethese: Adremmalech.
TXC2: yeap this is a boss
Wicker_Guide: @ThorSokar bunch of areas are only accessible once you get far enough into areas to unlock the alternate entrances
ThorSokar: this seems... not good
LordManiMani: bonus!
Earthenone: it is not
Boiler_bot: Esper?
TheAinMAP: duDudu
Whattheheckarethese: Nope.
Wicker_Guide: this is not what you came here to fight
ElektroTal: seems fine
Andymonium: ohhh not garuda
Leonhart321: It is not
Diabore: definitely not
doubledbear: Time for an esper fight! surprise!
CururuGuasu: Oh no
karpma: aren't you a... thing
LordManiMani: duDudu duDudu
cmdrelk: lrrFINE
richard_ermen: I have to admit Graham, it was through your Unskippable that I learned of the existence of the "Interrobang". What a weird thing.
SK__Ren: oh yeah. Aramelech
Prop_PT: and it flies
TheThirdTail: A drama lich?
Diabore: and it flies, have fun :)
Costar_s: everything will probably be fine
EvilBadman: And flying
TheMandrew: yeah....
Whattheheckarethese: I recommend quickeneings?
goatprince: you can steal grind off this goat guy btw, lol
Didero: bye Balthier
ThorSokar: yea, he got BODIED
TheAinMAP: mattlrHeck
EvilBadman: I recommend fleeing. You stole a great thing looks like
Andymonium: this seems: Bad™
Earthenone: he stole a high arcana before he died
Diabore: @goatprince i dont think he'll live long enough matt
koristi_: He's dead Jim
DarkAbyssKeeper: ening.
Boiler_bot: Can you run?
CururuGuasu: I think you can run from this one
Feriority: Ohh this fight
Didero: What's a High Arcana?
Mr_Horrible: ah, we're experiencing some Wroth
goatprince: you can also just Leave
TheMandrew: you can definitely run from this
Wicker_Guide: @Didero loot
goatprince: hey graham, is this giving you a new appreciation for goats yet?
BrindleBoar: just punching black holes in mans
Didero: Did... did Basch just punch a hole through spacetime?
Mr_Horrible: as DaShareZone would say, "If it sucks, hit da bricks!"
ElektroTal: imagine being the esper, going through all these dances and fireworks, and the folks you're posing for just turn and walk away before you finish
LadyLockwood92: "The Heavens have spoken and they are wroth indeed..."
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Punching a black hole into someone is a neat trick.
doubledbear: mean you might still win
SK__Ren: Yep
Mr_Horrible: winged goat but yes
goatprince: it's Capricorn: the summon
LadyLockwood92: It's goat adjacent.
Wicker_Guide: it's a goat-snake-dragon-bird-thing
SmashTCG: its goat shaped
Prop_PT: its a Goat headed flying God
BusTed: lrrGOAT
Krektogar: these attacks are so ridiculously over the top
doubledbear: Defo some sort of Baphomat
Didero: Heaven's Wrath? Isn't that an FF14 expansion?
TXC2: is it a goat or a G.O.A.T. ?
TheMandrew: one trick i found useful for this fight, and in other fights is a Cure gambit for undead enemies
ElektroTal: it's a groat, for fancy breakfast oatmeal espers
LadyLockwood92: @Didero Close. Though this guy *is* in FF14 in a later expansion.
Leonhart321: Sheer luck
Prop_PT: Mist Charge
Whattheheckarethese: Game hates?
Feriority: Mist charges do the shuffle
Mattmitchell45: @Didero Doesn't sound like a critically-acclaimed expansion to me
Diabore: @Prop_PT this
doubledbear: Sometimes it's a charge
thirsty_kitteh: Sometimes your getting a recharge, so it's technically two separate things happening
Zaghrog: @Didero Close: it's Heavensward
Diabore: and 11'sy
Wicker_Guide: this is Basch's ultimate
BusTed: Dramatic.
Earthenone: unlimited blade workds
TheMandrew: get sworded
LadyLockwood92: Hell yeah Basch. Fuck 'im up.
richard_ermen: We Fate Stay Night now
Raincoast_Bear: Hi Graham. That's a lot of stabbing.
Andymonium: just ALL the stabs
TXC2: that was a lot
MurphEP: Basch, chilkl
malsareus: hell of a move for 20 damage
TheAinMAP: RPGEpicSword SirSword RPGEpicSword SirSword
Whattheheckarethese: Arc?
Mr_Horrible: being hit with 12 swords and an exploding planet seems like it'll do something
SK__Ren: And you got a decent number of Rank 3s
Wicker_Guide: o_O
Feriority: @Didero In DSR the Heaven's Ward is more like the Heaven's Wrath
Whattheheckarethese: Woo!
BrindleBoar: HSWP
Diabore: im goona guess a fifth
Lobo_Apache: What is your current record for hits?
Leonhart321: I'm guessing barely any
Andymonium: WOO
Mr_Horrible: yooooo
BusTed: solid chunk
DarkAbyssKeeper: Enough.
krfsm: the "K" makes it kooler
Andymonium: let's GO
Wicker_Guide: that's the highest combo quickening I've ever seen
thirsty_kitteh: Swap to the other team, and do it again?
Diabore: wow, about 2/3rds
LadyLockwood92: melted his face off.
Diabore: oh now its bad
TheAinMAP: A decent amount.
Wicker_Guide: not the 11, the Ark Blast
BigDaddyBland87: and now you made it mad
BrindleBoar: you made him mad
malsareus: their turn
Whattheheckarethese: He has a rebuttal.
richard_ermen: TIme for his ulti
EvilBadman: Now its turn
control_rig: Uh oh it's their turn to Ult
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Their turn. LUL
Earthenone: the boss is flying katana wont help much
TXC2: now it's their turn
SK__Ren: Hey, he can do that too
Mr_Horrible: Addramalech like "neat trick, lemme try"
Didero: Easy, just do another Quickening Kappa
UncannyJimjams: seems like you might be able to beat them, nice
thirsty_kitteh: Swap to the other team, and use mist powers again?
goatprince: just like in Elden ring, the goats in this game are thunder elemental
LadyLockwood92: Oof.
Leonhart321: Hey, that's illegal, only we get to limit break
Earthenone: B team mist combo seems like the plan, yeah
control_rig: With "Go"
Zaghrog: B team for more mist seems good
EvilBadman: ^
Wicker_Guide: and now Addramelech makes itself immune to everything
Mr_Horrible: goatprince between this and Ixion from 10, I'm noticing the pattern in FF games too
LadyLockwood92: I don't like the sound of him casting 'Bleed'.
Whattheheckarethese: Swap someone out and abuse more quickeneings?
Gladuir: Ah yes the Adrammelech fight
thirsty_kitteh: Your B team still has mist charges , G
Mr_Horrible: Graham you're saying you can't... finish the fight?
Diabore: and now basch dead
Zaghrog: The B team could Mist as soon as you swap
thirsty_kitteh: (i know you're probably paying more attention to game that chat, but we're trying to help :P)
Wicker_Guide: chat, patience, also it wouldn't work right now as boss is damage immune
Diabore: @Zaghrog this is a viable strat
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Some of the B-team are also dead, I think.
MurphEP: Call in the C team
DarkAbyssKeeper: Call in the J team.
Zaghrog: Considering how well the first Quickening combo went, how about some more?
TXC2: MurphEP Vossler and Lursa ? Kappa
Invitare: don't you heal zombies in Final Fantasy normally?
Diabore: @MurphEP i dont think we have enough letters
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Good news: the boss in invulnerable right now.
Invitare: I distinctly remember casting Heal on undead in FFT Advanced
Didero: @Wicker_Guide so how do you make it stop being immune?
Mr_Horrible: She can't deny her nature, Graham. Theft is in her heart
Prop_PT: hes immune to magic now so you need ranged/poles spears to hit him
Wicker_Guide: @Didero only lasts ~1min
MurphEP: @TXC2 Yes and yes
Gladuir: Basch is fine he just needed a nap
Zaghrog: This seems doable with quickening spam
Orxolon: i think maybe what we should do is weaken things first and then use the quickenings to finish them off to avoid 2nd stages
Boiler_bot: A valiant attempt
goatprince: good job not dying
BloodnBullets: you have quickenings ready again
Diabore: went better than i expected
accountmadeforants: Some of you may die, but that is a sacrifice Vaan is willing to make.
thirsty_kitteh: For the record, chats advice was "as soon as you finished the first mist chain, do a full party swap, as the other three still had mist charges"
Zaghrog: The easy swapping of characters mid combat makes quickening real easy to use
Mr_Horrible: so which espers have we actually beaten thus far? I know only a handful are mandatory
Whattheheckarethese: @accountmadeforants Vaan of you may die, but that is a sacrifice Ashe is willing to make.
Wicker_Guide: @Didero it's something a number of the "beatstick" espers do, going immune for ~1min at half health, I presume to prevent the player from just quickening them to death
Costar_s: I love how much exploration this game lets you do, even if you can come across high level nasties like that XP
Didero: @Wicker_Guide But it takes a bit to cast its Immune, so you can be quicker, hopefully?
SK__Ren: Honestly, stumbling into the espers in the wild is half the fun of this game
ThorSokar: I mean, nothing's stopping ya from running back in there and double quickening it to death
Andymonium: we found which tunnel the death lives in
Didero: Can we mark this lair on the map so we can remember to fight it when we're stronger?
Andymonium: science!
Wicker_Guide: @Didero possibly? I've had no luck and I wasted quickenings at least once, but it could be possible.
SK__Ren: like, we made a huge deal over Belias and Mateus and then Adramelech is just chilling in a cavern
Mr_Horrible: who, *us*?
Mr_Horrible: sofieTeehee
LordShadner: he is the new dino
goatprince: goats chill in caverns. don't worry about it
Whattheheckarethese: It's actually very doable now. And G may have mutliple tries.
Gladuir: Penelo's quickening moves have always kind of terrified me. She goes from "Let me summon ghosts to terrorize you." To "Imma stop time, then shatter it."
Wicker_Guide: Adramelech just hanging out in his underground sand tornado, no biggie
DarkAbyssKeeper: Level up. Now you're strong enough to do goat murder.
grgriffin3: I return, enlivened by hot cocoa with marshmallows.
Whattheheckarethese: Wellllll......
Crazyginder22: man combat in this game just seems miserable :-\
Didero: How do you refill mist charges? Just fight enemies?
EvilBadman: Yeah didero
EvilBadman: They're like limit breaks
Didero: hey full mist charges!
Whattheheckarethese: @Didero Anything that refills you MP refills your charges.
Diabore: i have a question, who installs these crystals?
Wicker_Guide: @Crazyginder22 fully manual combat is miserable in this game, but programming the auto-battle combat is actually fine
Earthenone: from what i remember the hunt you are meant to fight was near the slimes at the entrtance
Krektogar: the map is just a suggestion
BloodnBullets: whoever makes these maps should probably be fired.
TXC2: Diabore the state Kappa
Earthenone: rust armlet is putting in work
Didero: Is that the diamond armlet causing the knots of rust, or is this cave just stingy with treasure?
Andymonium: they're just so *wibbly*
Wicker_Guide: @Diabore I presume Hydaelyn
accountmadeforants: @Diabore They migrate to areas with high chances of dying or cutscenes happening, that's what they feed off of.
maestrith: I'm going to guess W+P was cancelled? I hope Alex is OK.
Boiler_bot: Scheduling problem.
Wicker_Guide: @maestrith yeah, canceled, just a scheduling snafu
TXC2: maestrith sadly yes
ghyllnox: It was just scheduling
Krektogar: @maestrith just a scheduling mishap
herph subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 55 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, herph! (Today's storm count: 16)
bytecaster: Gotta get the good, high-fidelity frames!
maestrith: @Wicker_Guide @TXC2 @Krektogar Thanks :) just glad all are well.
doubledbear: Aqua has always sucked
accountmadeforants: That sure is an explosion noise
SocraticMethod: That's diamond armlet for you
Earthenone: your amulet turns 95% of all items into rust
thirsty_kitteh: ^
Wicker_Guide: per earlier chatters, apparently hte diamond armlet is turning items into rust
EvilBadman: Aqua doesn't get a aoe/upgrade spell
Didero: Oh, so it IS the armlet causing the stupid drops, thanks Chat
Dantt2022: no watch and play today?
Costar_s: I found for Steal, having HP < 90% - Attack above Steal - Nearest Visible worked pretty well
Whattheheckarethese: With the heal, addy should be viable.
accountmadeforants: @Dantt2022 Nope, scheduling mishap
BusTed: tqsShrug
lostluckDev: #whoops
doubledbear: There's an upgrade spell Mote though you got one earlier
goatprince: snake is in top right map chunk
nichol_bogus: Diamond Armlet turns most chests into Knots of Rust or Elixirs
Dantt2022: ahhh... well too bad I guess
goatprince: yeah
Earthenone: yeah
Didero: I like how Graham just missed the Armlet warning messages :p
goatprince: it shows up after a couple minutes
BloodnBullets: your full on mist again arent you? you could try that fight again with quickening spam?
Whattheheckarethese: Yeah.
Sacrenos: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: AFK (Join the LRR crew for a bonus AFK to show off this brand new party game available on Kickstarter. Game: What On Earth Are You Talking About?) at Wed 04:00 PM PST (2:58 from now).
EvilBadman: You have to idle in the sunlight for a couple minutes (not a joke)
Raincoast_Bear: That's ok Graham. We'll just watch you play. Watch and Play it Forward, if you will.
Didero: It's almost like you're playing a videogame demanding your attention or something, Graham
Dantt2022 subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 33 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Dantt2022! (Today's storm count: 17)
Whattheheckarethese: Armlet gives you a different loot table, and most of the alternate table is knots of rust.
Wicker_Guide: @Didero in fairness, it was a classic chat telling him both stories situation (full disclosure I was on the wrong side saying it worked properly)
goatprince: this nook
thirsty_kitteh: You read out a message where the two messages about and below it told you that :P
TehAmelie: just gonna scoop up some unidentified green slime from the green slime. . .
devil_dan: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: AFK (Join the LRR crew for a bonus AFK to show off this brand new party game available on Kickstarter. Game: What On Earth Are You Talking About?) at Wed 04:00 PM PST (2:57 from now).
TXC2: but that would have meant that chat would have been helpful Graham Kappa
Whattheheckarethese: Not usually imprtant stuff.
EvilBadman: Stand in the light for a min or so for the hunt to show up
LordZarano: !listen
LRRbot: Chat? Engaging in mimicry?
SocraticMethod: They were, you just missed the tail of discussion where the warning was explicit :D
devil_dan: Is today not Watch+Play?
Whattheheckarethese: Anything unique will still be in it's jar. It's the random stuff that gets replaced.
Earthenone: good thing we can wait. at double speed1
SocraticMethod: @devil_dan No W+P todya
ScrapyardGhostTrain: @devil_dan Schedule mishap.
Didero: Double the speed means half the waiting!
mwlsn: Who has time for reading?
Boiler_bot: The hunt text usually gives you good clues.
Diabore: @devil_dan internal scheduling mishap
Raincoast_Bear: Alex eaten by monsters
Costar_s: just gotta wait for the Fiend of Fire to show up
Costar_s: She takes her time
Didero: But on the plus side, a bonus Nintendo Direct stream, right?
BigDaddyBland87: #blamejames
Andymonium: brb putting "scheduling hoo-hah" on my business cards
Diabore: @devil_dan in exchange, we get a beej and heather direct watch along
EvilBadman: BUT! bonus stream for the nintendo direct
BigDaddyBland87: nek
BigDaddyBland87: snel
RocknGrohlNerd: soo it is our fault, essentialy
BigDaddyBland87: snek
nichol_bogus: I love all the new add-ons on the accessories in Zodiac Age. The elemental defenses make them way more useful.
maestrith: Is that today?
Earthenone: nintendo direct, followed by afk, followed by yet more akf!
BigDaddyBland87: got there eventually
devil_dan: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: AFK (Join the LRR crew for a bonus AFK to show off this brand new party game available on Kickstarter. Game: What On Earth Are You Talking About?) at Wed 04:00 PM PST (2:55 from now).
Diabore: @maestrith yup, about an hour
EvilBadman: Quicken this boy up
beowuuf: bonus nintendos, bonus afk, normal afk but monikers so already s tier
goatprince: this marilith isn't a naga lady with swords. extreme downgrade imo
maestrith: @Diabore neat :)
Wicker_Guide: agree
Costar_s: @goatprince hard agree
Mr_Horrible: goatprince the name is aspirational. Or Asp-irational, if you wanna be cheeky
Whattheheckarethese: @goatprince I mean.. Omega iin this game is a mimic. So downgrades all around?
Diabore: i need to catch up to you g, i stopped playing before the pre pre so you got pretty far ahead of me
devil_dan: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: nothing
Raincoast_Bear: Nintendo direct not as much fun as G&A dumping on sad games.
goatprince: I think it's strong to fire too
Gladuir: Ashe going to town with the katana
thirsty_kitteh: It's one of the weird things about the gambit system -- somehow it *knows*
Didero: schedule-y prepared
Wicker_Guide: characters know the elemental weaknesses even if player does not identify them, it's actually kind of strange
SocraticMethod: Fran borrowed a copy of script from Balthier :D
malsareus: the logistics are not there today
evilspoons983: she's a fan of bubble gum Europop
EvilBadman: @Wicker_Guide Libra
bytecaster: It's fine, it happens
Didero: hashtag blame james
Wicker_Guide: @EvilBadman no it's not Libra. Libra doesn't work on bosses
BusTed: Just utterly drenched
ThorSokar: I assumed the public schedule was just populated from the internal one
Wicker_Guide: and characters will do it even without libra
accountmadeforants: Mmm, moist swords
TehAmelie: wet katana: it slices snakes
TheThirdTail: Even with Libra, some enemies don't display the weakness on the hud, but characters will still use gambits correctly
Costar_s: smack the danger noodle with the wet stick
Andymonium: honestly it's not surprising, it seems like the PPR is a big production (although this one was ESPECIALLY good, although they're routinely bangers)
Mr_Horrible: I'm enjoying the track record of Graham gassing Ashe up only for her to get *immediately* duffed by the monster
Diabore: why is it doing so much damage now?
Zaghrog: enemy seems to be in enrage mode, perhaps time to quickening to end it?
BigDaddyBland87: quickening time?
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Because it's cooldowns all went away.
SocraticMethod: Party members: "Please, I'm dying" Graham:"Uppies!"
goatprince: this snake gets mad when it's near death btw
BusTed: "Let me diiiie"
Mr_Horrible: this is a very fast anake
SK__Ren: Mist?
Mr_Horrible: *snake
Whattheheckarethese: You may need to quicken.
TXC2: this is one tough snake
Zaghrog: Another case of game subtly suggesting: kill this now
Diabore: balthier heals so much more than fran
Mr_Horrible: goatprince don't we all?
Didero: Wow, Balthier raises people with a lot more health than Fran or Penelo do
Diabore: g wants to leave a crater where the snake was
Wicker_Guide: yep
control_rig: BalThreer
northos: Ashe just did a level 2, I don't think she has her 3 yet
Mr_Horrible: Balthree-ir
Mr_Horrible: D:
thirsty_kitteh: So, something I never knew: is it better to have 2 lvl1 quickening hits, or 1 lvl2? When I played, I always led with a lvl1 to make it easier to chain, but I don't know if that is correct
Costar_s: Raise might be affected by Phoenix Lore?
Whattheheckarethese: Baltier has better magic/magic lore (licenses).
Mr_Horrible: :D
Wicker_Guide: Balthier's a Red Battlemage, which in this game is the second best healer
TXC2: rehired (at half pay)
Costar_s: I agree it would be silly XP
Mr_Horrible: tfw the License Board takes away my "Pun 2" card
Gekyouryuu: maybe he's just more charismatic, and the amount of health is how willing someone is to get back to work?
Leonhart321: Wait, we work for you? Are we salaried? What's our benefits package?
Wicker_Guide: pretty sure it's just magick potency yeah
Whattheheckarethese: @Leonhart321 Death.
TXC2: Leonhart321 we're paid in laughter
Leonhart321: @Whattheheckarethese I've worked retail, so that's a step up TBH
Costar_s: balthier stop i can only get so excited
Diabore: @LoadingReadyRun so, relevant to basically nothing, the current highest quickening chain without cheats is a 47
Didero: "Time's Up", yeah, also for that snake
Wolfstrike_NL: And caps is off again... :( sorry
Diabore: yup
DEATHlikescats: how do you know when to press a button during these?!
Costar_s: that's a dead snek
Zaghrog: @thirsty_kitteh two level 1s uses up slightly more time than oone lvl 2. Beyond that, which finisher you get at the end depends on what levels of quickening were used and how many
RayFK: It's probably a handicam pointed at a CRT with bad audio
grgriffin3: Casual 15,000 damage
Lobo_Apache: at 47, does that just instant merc someone?
control_rig: "Blek" - The Snek, probably
Pharmacistjudge: odds are i bet it's required to have some stupid chain for the speedrun
JakeKamas: @Wolfstrike_NL I thought that was on purpose, it made it funnier if that makes you feel better
Mr_Horrible: stay in the cask
BusTed: @RayFK i just caught a shiny ponyta vibes
Whattheheckarethese: Do you want to give Goat another try, or come back later?
Gekyouryuu: how much longer we going today?
Izandai: oops
Costar_s: Goat's pretty early at this point, even if doable.
Andymonium: XD
malsareus: ok who narked?
RayFK: Maybe if you weren't such a gamer
accountmadeforants: Hey there, no snitching
Cephallope: invisoWheezer
nickthecatbear: today's just an oppsies-schedule day all round haha
Firewhiskers: I'm glad you're enjoying the game that much.
Syntheticuh: its like reminding the teacher they forget to assign homework 😔
Wolfstrike_NL: !onemore?
Diabore: according to science, the highest a robot can get with optimal RNG manipulation is NINETY THREE
Feriority: It's because you've been streaming at 2x speed
Whattheheckarethese: You do have autosaves, G. So you can just stop.
Mr_Horrible: Graham like "yeah, uh, W+P today is uhhhhhh this. Isn't it silly? Anyway, back to saving the world."
Didero: "hey why is it getting dark outside?"
grgriffin3: I almost mentioned something about the time but selfishly wanted OT streaming LUL
RayFK: You reached peak "gambits and chill"
Lysander_salamander: Hello everyone!
Costar_s: sure
Gekyouryuu: @malsareus I'm sorry. I didn't mean to
TXC2: hello Lysander_salamander welcome
BigDaddyBland87: I just figured he was going to play the extra hour before Beej and Heather came in
Earthenone: a weather vane
Wicker_Guide: windvane parts
Ritaspirithntr: Eventually Heather would come in and kick you out.
evilspoons983: something you just said triggered my google assistant
thirsty_kitteh: hmmm, I have been known to nintend on occasion
RayFK: Any Ninten-stans in chat?
Didero: nintFANdo
grgriffin3: Nintendo? Never heard of them, is this an indie showcase?
Costar_s: Nah nobody like Nintendo... definitely not.....
accountmadeforants: I am a Nintendo tolerater.
UncannyJimjams: Nintendo? More like Nintend-ew /s
BrowneePoints: Silksong news
BrowneePoints: plz
Izandai: TOTK news
Mr_Horrible: I've got meetings overlapping the direct, but I'm sure I will be unable to avoid the general news
LurkerSpine: Metroid Dread 2
Decaped: Hopefully we get a Silksong PC release date on this Ninteoddirect
Ritaspirithntr: @rayfk yes, and?
Diabore: tears trailer
Pharmacistjudge: asking what Santa-moto will bring us?
