TehAmelie: they're the company that built the country's phone lines before deregulation, and now it's the only one that can reliably get internet through the aforementioned bad wiring. sort of giving me the worst parts of both a state monopoly and free market at the same timne
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 (9m from now).
Didero: wee, PiF funtimes
Didero: Good evening everybody
: For context (https://www.kpn.com/beleef/blog/glas-aan-koper-uit.htm) Apparently switching to fiber for 40.000 households saved them 440,000 kWh per year vs. copper, though that's just a nice added bonus on top of the vastly lower maintenance cost (which they unfortunately don't specify, I'll see if I can find some investor notes or something).
Didero: It keeps being surprising how many people on the internet are Dutch
Didero: Statistically there should be far fewer of us than there are
TehAmelie: maybe it's a social bubble effect
Didero: The Dutch are also internationally focussed, historically
Sethalidos: *is not Dutch if that helps*
: Never discount the whole "timezone" bias
malsareus: we just made lots of windmill bots to increase our numbers
Didero: Sure, but I don't mean just here, also in forums and the like, there's more Dutch people than you'd expect
TehAmelie: i see a lot of Swedes everywhere i go on the internet, which is definitely weird when you're in a country with a population about the same as New York City
Didero hits malsareus with a clog
Didero: Don't give away our secrets!
Wolfstrike_NL: There are apparently 17.5 mil of us. So encountering a few everywhere isn't out of the norm
TehAmelie: well, we reached 10 million not so long ago. maybe NY gets there if you include enough outlying regions
accountmadeforants: Yeah, high percentage of English literacy + near-100% access to internet + acceptable amounts of free time will do that. It was the same even in the olden days (since we had a decent head start on rolling out internet in the first place).
accountmadeforants: (Same goes for Sweden, fwiw)
TehAmelie: there was a moment in the 1990s when Sweden was considered a spearhead in the internet revolution. i think just before the deregulation, actually. . .
TemporallyAwry: 1990s internet was a good time for hopeful technology.
malc: accountmadeforants: huh. XGS-PON on a point-to-point line is...a choice!
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 (1s ago).
beowuuf: so close
malsareus: of by 1
malc: of by f
beowuuf: serged ahead
TXC2: Hello Everybody
Didero: Hi TXC2!
NightValien28: hello hello TXC2
accountmadeforants: Haha, yeah, we privatized our internet (hence the "gifted a monopoly on phone lines" comment from earlier). And then that same government also did fuck all when a few companies started buying up all the coax cable that was originally funded by municipalities for way less than it originally cost to build out.
TXC2: hello beowuuf and TehAmelie and Didero and NightValien28
Manae: Is there ever a case of a public utility being snatched up by private entities that ended *well*?
TXC2: no, never
TehAmelie: all the regulars. well, some regulars
malsareus: there are still a few municipally owned ISPs in the Netherlands though, North eastern Frisia has 1
GapFiller: Manae this implies ending well is a possible option at all
: if by ended well you mean taken back from the private entities, then sure, it's happened at least once
malsareus: well together with 2 other munincipalities
accountmadeforants: Nope, but don't tell the government that. They'd much rather waste money researching why social projects definitely won't work (even when the report says the opposite) than spend even a second considering whether giving away infrastructure that the country paid for, for pennies, is a good idea.
TehAmelie: no, definitely not. i have a giant article by IMF bookmarked explaining how they themselves acknowledge that privatizing and deregulating public services didn't work like their mission was supposed to
malsareus: siganl achieved
Juliamon: Signal means it's time to move country infrastructure chat elsewhere!
TehAmelie: sure thing!
: Oh that reminds me, there's provincial elections coming up in The Netherlands, i should look into who to vote for. Like presumably accountmadeforants, I do already know who I definitely won't vote for
malsareus: country infrastructure chat will return!
: See y'all Friday for Late Stage Capitalism Rage with Ian?
laundreydhull: The Gram is Back!
GapFiller gifted a Tier 1 sub to malc! They have given 3 Gift Subs in the channel!
: Thanks for subscribing, malc! (Today's storm count: 1)
accountmadeforants: @malsareus Oh sure, but KPN is fighting hard to ruin any attempts at expansion from smaller network operators. (Hell, that happened where I live. One such operator was polling whether they could expand to my area, and in rolled KPN claiming they were definitely gonna build their own fiber network*! *After doing nothing for a few years)
: Juliamon How often do you feel like a kindegarten teacher trying to keep the unruly children in line?
: The s are Back!

malc: oh, I caught a stray sub
BigDaddyBland87: Finished this game last night. Not an all-timer FF game, and I had many niggling issues with it, but overall, glad I finally got to finish it after 15+years
1 raiders from Earthenone have joined!
GapFiller: malc felt odd seeing yr name w/o the sword
: @didero you mean like us?
TXC2: hello Raiders
GapFiller: so heres the nxt best thing
Spacecarl: Hooray! get to catch it live for the first time in a while
TXC2: hello Spacecarl welcome
Juliamon: Didero Trick question, it's always because we also have to wrangle the streamers
queercrafting_chonk: So happy to have this stream to watch again :3
Manae: Also, 'new' unskippable up for during an ad break later
Didero: @laundreydhull am baby!
Didero: @Juliamon That sounds a lot harder than keeping Chat in line, yeah
TehAmelie: this music is definitely setting the mood
ActuallyTheMoon: why am i getting ads for american tv shows? They don't have judge judy here
Didero: Man, a Graham PiF is exactly what I need after a draining meeting-filled office day
BigDaddyBland87: @Manae Ohhhh Resonance of Fate...the story of two people falling forever
mwlsn: woo PiF
TehAmelie: Megatron, to Unicron: "this meeting could have been an email!"
hesterbyrde: Is it just me, or does this 100% sound like music that should be played at a college graduation.
Manae: @ActuallyTheMoon Location masking? You may find yourself getting ads for Nebraskan political races in the next few months...
shurtal: got my covid booster and it's kicking my ASS. perfect time to sit back and watch vaan fail to steal 379 times in a row
Manae: Sorry, Kansas, not Nebraska
Juliamon: Nebraska feels like a fake state.

jessieimproved: ahhhh, i got here in time
: THERE IS NO NEED TO PANIC, IT'S FINE.
TXC2: was gonna say, no way Nebraska has money for ads
TehAmelie: let's hope the vaccine kicks ass if the side effects do, right
Juliamon: like, people joke about the Dakotas being fake, but my money's on Nebraska
Earthenone: its clearly a fake state, the real one would be called New Braska right?
TXC2: here we GO!
Slacker1977: @Earthenone isn't New Braska in FF X?
TheMandrew: damnit i was gonna make that joke
Didero: I can't even name half the US states

mwlsn: By me?!
Diabore: this is our fault
Slacker1977: Play it Forward: Enterprise
thirsty_kitteh runs in rambling about polycules
ActuallyTheMoon: last part i watched of this was pt. 9 on youtube. Guess it's timeskip time
: Oh look its Graham Stark!!!!! He's so handsome and talented and everybody loves him!!!!!!!!!!!
Didero: Graham: I remember there was a thing you wanted to do on Friday, but I forgot what it was. I think some sort of equipment switching?
TXC2: btw: FANTASTIC job on the recent craphot Graham
Juliamon: It's a new month, so make sure your payment info for Patreon is up to date!
Leonhart321: You can tell its been a while
malsareus: this is not the beach episode
Slacker1977: around 13 i'd guess
Slacker1977: +- 2
hesterbyrde: Yes the most recent Crapshot is amazing. I would love a whole series about whatever workplace that is
malsareus: so clearly we're of to an onsen
accountmadeforants: Oh yeah, the crapshot was excellent
Orxolon: what version of the game is this that has the speed up option?
: @malsareus That's give the Princess a Bikini. The title will always say
beowuuf: yup, that crapshot was amazing
queercrafting_chonk: Omg yes that crapshot was excellent
jacqui_lantern234: @beowuuf YOURE AMAZING
Earthenone: this is the remastered zodiac age
mwlsn: Hey Graham! I hope Unskippable was able to take advantage of the big Steam sale on Atelier games last weekend
Leonhart321: Yeah, that shot was A tier
: 500 It was lovely to see you all in Philly, you all were great.
ThreeCatsInATrenchcoat: It was so good
: yeah loved the crapshot
TehAmelie: i wanna see a Loading Time about that. so many questions about where and how it was filmed
Slacker1977: @Orxolon the one for new consoles and PC. "The Zodia Age"
Earthenone: if you want to get it to remeber
shurtal: the stockroom line hit REAL GOOD
TXC2: Orxolon this remaster, the zodiac age
TehAmelie: it's gorgeous, anyway
Orxolon: @TXC2 great thanks
jacqui_lantern234: i am in A MOOD today. be prepared, chat
Orxolon: @Orxolon thanks
TXC2: jacqui_lantern234 a loving mood?
Didero: Ooh, new Crapshot! I'm gonna watch that during the break
Leonhart321: What kind of mood?
SpleenLord: Can we ever do all the silliness?
jacqui_lantern234: @TXC2 an especially aggressively loving mood, even by my standards
Juliamon: oh no, Jacqui has been taken by a strange mood!
Didero: Maybe you could put the Regen gambit on 'when ally <90% HP' or something?
kid_flashionable: I distincly remember this place, I tried to collect some loot for hours because those dang goblins had like a 15% chance of dropping it
TXC2: jacqui_lantern234 gasp, the horror!
TehAmelie: an unconditionally loving mood even?
malsareus: I sometimes wonder how the mooks work out among themselves who gets to be mook A
malsareus: do they draw straws?
jacqui_lantern234: also ive been caffinated after a bit without coffee, so im AMPED
Coloneljesus subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 8 months, currently on a 3 month streak!
Coloneljesus: 8 months is a time
: Thanks for subscribing, Coloneljesus! (Today's storm count: 6)
: Vaan decides who mook A is, whoever he sees first
Juliamon: I don't think the mooks label themselves, that's G's party doing it
Leonhart321: Ah, so operation on an 11 scale then, got it
TehAmelie: ooh, i'm almost out of caffeine, so jelly
Didero: I assume you don't have an inventory size limit?
queercrafting_chonk: @malsareus depends on how the mooks do on their mooking exam
LadyLockwood92: Howdy folks~
creasehearst: so much maggoty flesh to make someone else's problem
TXC2: hello LadyLockwood92 welcome
jacqui_lantern234: @LadyLockwood92 Meowdy :3
Spacecarl: So I caught myself up on the vods before this. Do your casters need the license for the charge technic or does that come standard?
Earthenone: inventory like most FF's is 99 per item
Juliamon: Enjoy your nap
Earthenone: but no max number of unique items
kid_flashionable: Which there was a slap technik for sleep!
nyperold: "Oi, you were Mook A lahst toim, let someone ewse 'ave a go!"
Orxolon: time for a gambit:"if not haste,haste self"
Earthenone: you got a ninja sword, i think baltheir?
kid_flashionable: For ninja things, yes yes
Spacecarl: Vaan is right now
RayFK: Ninjas usually
TXC2: vaan uses ninja swords
TheTekkieman: Vaan is using one right now.
kid_flashionable: I think shikari is the only one
TehAmelie: hmm the question is if there is a gambit condition such as "does not have Haste"
LadyLockwood92: Maybe Ashe?
Earthenone: ashe uses katanas, legaly diferernt
TXC2: Ashe uses Katana
EvilBadman: the weapon equip screen shows you who can use with dots. If a dot is there, their class can, if colored they have that liscence
LordZarano: How is a ninja sword different from a katana?
carefreewill: Only shikari

TehAmelie: Karate swords are too powerful for the game eh
Spacecarl: I vaguely remember Basch getting one?
kid_flashionable: Sometimes based on their board setup, they can have ninja swords be an option, but I don't know for sure
TXC2: Katana = smaurai Ninja sword = ninja
Coloneljesus: great, swords!
Izandai: Pretty okay swords.
xerjen: great swords and mediocre swords
malsareus: A Karkata? is that an store own brand katana?
Didero: sort by sword
ThreeCatsInATrenchcoat: Great swords and the subpar, crappy swords
Earthenone: swords 1 you have
LordShadner: allready unlocked
Earthenone: its by vaans face node
SpacePotato01: If I ever see a 'mediocre sword' I would buy that instead.
LordManiMani subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 40 months!
LordManiMani: wowza 40 months!

EvilBadman: You already redeemed
carefreewill: You have swords 1 already
kid_flashionable: Shikari is the only one guaranteed to get them though, but I believe you aren't able to get all of them because they're behind quickenings?
mwlsn: "What, this? Oh, it's a 3 sword. No big deal."
Juliamon: malsareus it's a katana for your kar.
TehAmelie: random question, how long did it take you to discover you can hold down the d-pad to move super fast on the map in Super Mario bros 3?
TXC2: hello Mangledpixel welcome
LordShadner: you have locked yourself out of ninja swords 4 thou
Mangledpixel: how goes hitting the broad side of a Vaan?
carefreewill: My play through I’ve elected to not get ninja swords 1, got 2 through 4 instead
Didero: @Mangledpixel Vaan-tastically
BigDaddyBland87: I never understood why Ninja swords are 2 handed weapons since they still wield them like 1 handed weapons
malsareus: oh like a DLC
: wait this is a videogame?!
TXC2: sounds like a slightly off translation
EvilBadman: I'm in a work support thought process today (at work, weird, I know)
ThreeCatsInATrenchcoat: Videogames? On this twitch stream?
Izandai: @BigDaddyBland87 They need the other hand for doing cool hand poses
malsareus: "you have already redeemed katana DLC 2"
TehAmelie: is it because ninjas can't use shields?
mwlsn: you already redeemed your reward points, can't use them for this hotel reservation
WhoseGamewasitZ: Hi Graham. I have been really down lately and bing watching sWs has been a great way to distract myself.
Earthenone: ghost vs ninja sword
Mangledpixel: wibbley wibbley wibbley!
TXC2: hello WhoseGamewasitZ welcome
Coloneljesus: reminds me of dark souls' "You defeated"
: a ghost, but with a hard G
TehAmelie: looks almost like Necron, if anybody remembers the extremely random real final boss in FF9
malsareus: oh no Vaan is doomed *writes of Vaan*
Didero: I look away for one sec and suddenly bossfight?
EvilBadman: Also, oh no, you've almost caught up to my playthrough that keeps getting sidelined for other games.
Earthenone: the elves are a distinct culture!
fiftymcnasty: thats a lot for 2 damage
: classic pyroclasm
Mangledpixel: I do like how extra these sequences are
Squigel: what is the rider on element of treachery compared to act of treason?
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: in this economy?
BigDaddyBland87: I hate the monsters that divide...makes fights real annoying
carefreewill: The clones are relatively low health, but he seriously starts spamming them later in the fight. Just fought him yesterday
TehAmelie: what IS the element of treachery? is it like the symbol of avarice?
thirsty_kitteh: Three Balthies at the same time sounds like #goals tbh
Spacecarl: That's somebody's thing
shurtal: normally you have to pay extra for that
LurkerSpine: your mom let's you have 3 balthiers?
TXC2: are we in Fran's Dreams ?
malsareus: 3 Balthiers! were rich!
Octonomicon: He's the main character. Balthier can do what he wants
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Balthier - considerably less serious about dropping meteors than Sephiroth.
bolas_dnd: just hopped in, is this a cutscene?
Spacecarl: I just love how all these characters cast these wild magic thing, and Fran just punches things with hers
TXC2: I'm seeing Triple! 9 Balithiers!
1fairy2boots: Glad the opponent isn't Chris Redfield. Chris would just punch the meteor to smithereens.
thirsty_kitteh: bolas_dnd: this is a lmit break sequence
Andymonium: now we ARE the boss fight
xerjen: Things are certainly happening
TehAmelie: i'm somewhat annoyed by the white pause screen in between every chain link
Wolfstrike_NL: This time, we didn't use all the quickenings just before the bossfight
TXC2: a mere ten hit
WhoseGamewasitZ subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 2 months!

Leonhart321: "Boss" fight
malsareus: No one ever tells you about all the cannons Noah made for his ark
Didero: But it doesn't get rid of Doom, apparently
Earthenone: i think you targeted a clone so only the last hit damaged boss
Spacecarl: Also, I gotta say, this is a VERY silly way to just travel to the capital
nyperold: It didn't have enough Chaos Emeralds.
Mangledpixel: typically you uninstall it
: You can generally just uninstall Doom to get rid of it
Earthenone: remedy lore can
EvilBadman: Rip and Tear, historically
Slacker1977: i think with a Phoenix Down
Earthenone: but dying is easier
PsychoI3oy: Animal Crossing?
MrVirite: @LoadingReadyRun did you know you can hold left trgger for a focused camera?
TehAmelie: but why would you want to uninstall Doom
carefreewill: You die then phoenix down
YTfriendofsquirrel: Doom is #based
TXC2: you can't, doom works on anything
carefreewill: ah, if you have remedy lore 3 you can!
Didero: 'Sky Jewel'? Isn't that an airship?
TXC2: doom works on your washing machine!
carefreewill: shikari (vaan) can have remedy lore 3, that allows them to remove doom with remedy
Brozard: mmm skin juice
SpoonfullOfSugar: yum yum sack juice
1fairy2boots: And now Vaan drops dead?
malsareus: Vaan you drukkard
ActuallyTheMoon: it's a ninja sack
: G G E Z
Earthenone: to remind you he lives in a desert
thirsty_kitteh: why is Fran's battle thing "put the poison arrow in her mouth"?
Nosser2: That sack has got to be musty by now.
LadyLockwood92: Conglaturation. You Done It.
TehAmelie: Vaan is like 12, he should not drink
Andymonium: guess i'll die
thirsty_kitteh: Also, I love how Basch and Blathier just turn to each other and put their hands on their hearts. It's cute
thirsty_kitteh: (I know they're spell casting but)
Orxolon: have you never died?that's what it looks like
: I'm not sure that the noise a person makes when they die
Slacker1977: When is it Basch's time?
nyperold: Maybe, but I think people at the coin laundry would get annoyed at people taking up a washer on playing Doom.
shurtal: "Vaan came down in a bubble, Doug!"
ActuallyTheMoon: sometimes one just has to die now so they don't die later
Spacecarl: got one last level up before death
LadyLockwood92: Level up and immediately die.
carefreewill: Vaan might be able to remove doom with a remedy
Manae: Normally a level up refills your health, not causes you to drop dead!
urkleturtle: imagine having a constant counter over your head counting down to the moment you die
carefreewill: oh, too late, nvm
malsareus: @Manae it was an arthimetric overflow
TehAmelie: if this game allowed you, i mean forced you to sacrifice a party member, what do you think the split would be, like 90% Vaan, 9% Balthier?
theymerLoviatar subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 10 months!
: Thanks for subscribing, theymerLoviatar! (Today's storm count: 10)
Earthenone: i would think some would get rid of penelo
carefreewill: there it is
theymerLoviatar: I keep remembering Penelo's name is Pomelo, which is only marginally less goofy
Xenguin47: I would like all of those removed from me, please.
1fairy2boots: Did we explore the area to the left from the riddle area? I remember some kind of tunnel we opened a door to.
LurkerSpine: delicious maggotty flesh
malsareus: So Penelo is going out of this trip as a practiced healer with career prospects and Vaan as a boi with ninja swords
shurtal: Nicki Minaj's Superboss
EvilBadman: Grabbing passive licenses is usually worth unless it's completely non-applicable (i.e. Brawler the no weapon on for monk)
bytecaster: Ah the managers manager
: Oh, oki. Thanks for the info
SpoonfullOfSugar: missed a jug
Andymonium: ohhh like your omegas weapon and your shinsryu
ActuallyTheMoon: i am surprised by how much of this game i played/remember even though i never finished it (and started it like 4 times)
Slacker1977: i feel old now
theymerLoviatar: ""Super Bass" is a song by rapper Nicki Minaj from the deluxe version of her debut studio album, Pink Friday (2010" That was 13 years ago
Earthenone: the elevator is powered by eye contact
malsareus: the lift only works if everyone is looking each other in the eye
TXC2: yeah, if an elevator wobbled like that at the top, I'm not getting on it
malsareus: no eye contact no movement
theymerLoviatar: The elevator can't move if it thinks someone is watching, so it waits for everyone to be looking at each other
ScrapyardGhostTrain: @malsareus That would make it very difficult for 3 humans to use it.
ScrapyardGhostTrain: What with binocular vision & all.
malsareus: better bring a dog
Earthenone: arcadees Nuuuuuuuuuuuuu
ylegm: it's time for MINIGAMES!!!!!!!!!!
jacqui_lantern234: archaDEEZ- DAMNIT GRAHAM
Spacecarl: This is just in some random town? odd
TXC2: so like a capital ?
TehAmelie: Vaan stop climbing the furniture
theymerLoviatar: all I can think of when I see Balthier is that a friend cosplayed him when this game first came out and all that filigree is really a sight irl
BrowneePoints: Okay Graham i'm doing stuff in Destiny right now and hearing Gideon Emery's voice just made me SO confused
DanTheMediocre: kind of a nutty scent, ironically
BrowneePoints: I was like...I'm not even IN the EDZ!
LadyLockwood92: Arkay D. Snuts.
ActuallyTheMoon: it's quadratum!
thirsty_kitteh: The enemy is, as ever, capitalism
TXC2: so Arcades is New york?
1fairy2boots: Archades is New Capenna?
nyperold: Do they have Tekken?
Didero: So these are people not allowed in Archades proper, but Vaan & Friends assume they can just walk in?
BigDaddyBland87: NYC (or maybe Tokyo) in this middle age fantasy game
carefreewill: Welcome to the slum of terrible cockney accents
TWCblank: a knot of krust? use this knife to save your kneck
Earthenone: want some maggoty flesh?
malsareus: aha a source of commerce
theymerLoviatar: Old Archades, so this is Archades Sabboth as opposed to Archades, the Strategist
: i choose to pronunce this city "Arch-Ayd's"
Earthenone: some pebbles perchance?
TehAmelie: as long as they don't speak in exclusively cockney rhyming slang
Coloneljesus: you can't just say perchance
Earthenone: maybe we are selling them on consignment, and doing a time skip to once they sold
: dont worry about it
ylegm: lost all their money buying pebbles
TeiranDragon: You'll ruin him with all the maggoty flesh strips....
EvilBadman: Yeah, but all his money's tied up in GilCoin
Dalouer: why are you buying pebbles from this boy my good sir
Spacecarl: It would be such a troll move to have the vendor outside that long dungeon to not be able to sell to
Faulpyr: This is the real ludonarritive dissonance.
DarkAbyssKeeper: @TehAmelie I find that very expensive.
Didero: Getting rich is its own reward
malsareus: we're here for capitalist thrills G
ogundiety: Love that I tuned in just on that.
TXC2: THRILL as trading occurs
Critterbot: Holy moly that's a lotta stuff!
mwlsn: Do you have some tarps to sell him?
t3h_f1gm3nt: if only the devs werent silly and didn't put teleport stones in friggen loot, we wouldn't have this problem LuL
theymerLoviatar: speaking of commerce, I bought the EDSC sleeves and now I have to decide which deck to put them on :U
HavenDragon: i mean, i find it rather relaxing
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Maggoty flesh, surprisingly valuable.
: @TeiranDragon "Maggoty Flesh Strip" was my nickname in high school
Mangledpixel: well, at least it doesn't do the Fallout thing of merchants having limited currency, that can be super frustrating
DanTheMediocre: the maggots make it a delicacy
hesterbyrde: Maybe they need the maggots to make the maggot cheese?
t3h_f1gm3nt: oh and greens as well
creasehearst: well, at least all those maggots are someone else's problem now
hesterbyrde: Maggoty Nana cheese!
Slacker1977: that was over 200K
DarkAbyssKeeper: Large Gloves
MrAyeAxe: Maggots are haute couture in archades don't you know
TotallyNotaBeholder: I would say I want to know what they're going to make with all that maggoty flesh, but then I realize I really really don't want to know
Earthenone: gloves, large
Didero: This reads like an album's song list
urkleturtle: maggoty flesh, the new hot commodity for archades' high society
TehAmelie: one of these things are not like the others
malsareus: look Basch has very large hands
EvilBadman: "Ah! Mah hands!
mwlsn: I'm just picturing Mickey Mouse gloves
thirsty_kitteh: A forked spear? A bi-dent for a bi-party!
Izandai: You would have to pay me to take your strips of Maggoty Flesh.
Firewhiskers: Are Large Gloves needed by the people with floppy hands in Everything Everywhere All At Once?
Masslost: I’m here for when the taxs have to be filed
theymerLoviatar: maybe Maggoty Flesh has hallucinogenic properties or something
Andymonium: i mean what'd y'think "soul of the fire bird" was gonna be
malsareus: how do they make Prince's kisses?
HavenDragon: man, i want a prince's kiss...
Earthenone: you got a better thing from the goblins
Earthenone: its a rare drop
DarkAbyssKeeper: "Just" lots of phoenix downs. Says man who has an entire mythological birds worth of feathers, each of which can REVIVE THE DEAD.
Izandai: Also, how does the Flesh stay Maggoty for so long? Do flies in this universe just have really really REALLY long larval phases?
Didero: Does he even need Strength?
malsareus: he does use maces
theymerLoviatar: @Izandai The item does not claim the maggots are alive
jacqui_lantern234: hehehehe "jerkin'"
Slacker1977: @Izandai was it flesh from a maggot?
Izandai: @Izandai ...I'm not sure if that's better or worse.
TehAmelie: Phoenix downs are basic stuff for babies. remember Mega phoenixes? Phoenix Pinions?
Xenguin47: Is that a hat made out of bone... or a hat that one wears in order to bone?
malsareus: is there also a stairtop elder?
Earthenone: the Hating man
BigDaddyBland87: Balthier just walks into this rich city wearing a bone helmet
nyperold: Ah, then maybe they have Pac-Man and Asteroids.
theymerLoviatar: Please, sir, may I have some more Maggoty Flesh
HavenDragon: a metal jerkin seems uncomfortable
Mangledpixel: eyes... in the dark....
shurtal: as long as they're not dressed like DIckensian Perverts
ALLxISxLOST: how else do people talk?
malsareus: if everything sucks I'll take the indoor plumbing
Didero: I'd like to buy a consonant, please
DanTheMediocre: parts of your sole also go black if you stick around here
mwlsn: Entertainment companies doing remakes of popular properties would beg to disagree on feeding your family with the past
DanTheMediocre: most of your soles, really

Earthenone: ohh can we not speak to them?
Didero: Again the knot of rust? Is somebody wearing a cursed amulet again?
bwk789: Here we go for more PIF!
shurtal: look at all the (old) chicken
Earthenone: i guess that was a sidequest thing
TehAmelie: i'm hearing every single character like Gavroche in the Les Miserables movie now
LadyLockwood92: Oh god...I hate the face chickens. They're in 14 as well.
BigDaddyBland87: oh yea, if you get magical feather, you can talk to birds
Mangledpixel: ruined so many normal men
nyperold: Well, I won't tell you how to do your hobby, even if I don't know how you'd catch an abstract concept with a physical rod...
Earthenone: he was an information broker, not stock i think?
BrowneePoints: I will never not be enamored with the Re-Orchestrations of this
Invitare: at least, not with regret
Mangledpixel: just innocent men
BrowneePoints: the music is SO good
Invitare: they might say it proudly
TWCblank: maybe he's lamenting that he ruined his own life many times
TXC2: Mangledpixel just normal men
TehAmelie: if someone told me "i have ruined so many men" i would assume they were talking about sex
urkleturtle: they would furiously complain on twitter about getting canceled
Sorator13: @TehAmelie same
theymerLoviatar: @TehAmelie "it's called pegging"
shurtal: "I ruined so many people's lives getting this reservation at Dorsia"
Didero: Dozens of people telling Vaan they're poor, and all Vaan does about it is steal their money...
Firewhiskers: Are you playing a man false if you bluff in poker?
ElektroTal: there's a new ep of Shivam and Wheeler, but you probably weren't asking about that, lol
Sorator13: The Moogles Eight
Invitare: It's just the one moogle actually
ScrapyardGhostTrain: It's just the one moogle, actually.
queercrafting_chonk: Ohhhhh they're so cute
TheMandrew: Tom Bomdadil?
EvilBadman: @ScrapyardGhostTrain Yesss
jacqui_lantern234: @TheMandrew just thinking that
thirsty_kitteh: Are these moogles also organised?
seanmrwick: Hey Graham enjoying the game?
goatprince: graham your moogle singing voice isn't cyootzie-wootzie enough
Didero: A suspicious amount of rust...
TheMandrew: @TheMandrew i feel bad for disrespecting the master's name and misspelling it
ShamelessMatt: @thirsty_kitteh not on our watch
TehAmelie: Archadian Vulgar: "i have only one joke. guess what it is"
Izandai: Oh man, a Final Fantasy Universes Beyond set would actually be so sweet.
seanmrwick: I still have my copy but haven't gotten around to it. Mostly because I have a few games I want to get into first
BrowneePoints: Muwugle if you will Graham
goatprince: I'm always clear in my messaging
DarkAbyssKeeper: Cutesy uWutsey
jacqui_lantern234: @TehAmelie archaDEEZ REMINDER THAT YOURE LOVED AGGRESSIVELY!!!!!!!!

Sorator13: muwugle. agh. thanks, I hate it
DanTheMediocre: The alley of quiet moping
malsareus: who keeps tying up the rust?
TXC2: hello GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou welcome
jacqui_lantern234: *tips fedora* m'oogle
thirsty_kitteh: I mean, Gil isn't that useful in Arcades, as we will soon loan
MrAyeAxe: The lack of moogles really does bring this city's vibe down tbf
Helrumyc: That sounded like a Fable NPC
Earthenone: vaan steals the skin off living animals, he will fit in fine
seanmrwick: I can imagine that same person with a super over the top cockney accent
bwk789: What’s the story beat here? Are we trying to rescue Larsa?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: ah to be an NPC with two lines to say and a single route to pace through a generic fantasy location.
Didero: I feel like the jar containing the knot of rust is worth far more than the knot of rust itself
Spacecarl: It has been a long time since plot
Sorator13: "oh my god I forgot about that"
malsareus: also those senators
BigDaddyBland87: Emperor caught a nasty case of dead
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh yeah I missed the last several streams…where are we in the game? I played it ages ago.
goatprince: drace certainly was a 3-scene wonder
TehAmelie: DEEZ stairs? okay that's too much
nyperold: Ah, so he's telling the ORIGINAL versions of faerie tales. The hardcore stuff.
malsareus: do a science
Earthenone: vaan roll deception
malsareus: guess we go home crew
goatprince: are you ready for..... a mini game?
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: Vaan "ive tried nothing and im out of ideas"ratsbane
LadyLockwood92: 'Well I tried' - Vaan
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Deception: 1 (-2)
BigDaddyBland87: "Yes" *get executed immediately for lying
malsareus: why do the ears have streets here?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Time for a Papers Please minigame!
niccus: is this guy supposed to be voiced by steve blum
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: deep down aren’t we all voiced by Steve Blum
Faulpyr: I definitely got a bit stuck here in my recent playthrough. Looking forward to you solving it for me!
TehAmelie: like, a street smile? but an ear? some kind of scarification jargon?
Helrumyc: Last name Verne?
Didero: what the hell does that even mean, Balthier
TXC2: enter the streetear, the VERY unsuccessful squeal to enter the dragon
thirsty_kitteh: gcu: we're heading to Arcades, the Emporer is dead, the seer in the sky temple was killed by judges and we're trying to stop a war. All is nethicite problems
goatprince: this guy has SO much 'I was balthier's ex' energy
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Power is also power, oddly enough.
TXC2: Knowledge is power, guard it well
DarkAbyssKeeper: This game seems a little early for powered doors.
Mangledpixel: knowing is half the battle! the other half is killing people.
Didero: "it is but a pittance to us"
Spacecarl: break out some of that maggoty flesh money
theymerLoviatar: @goatprince they broke up because Jules has no taste in clothing
jacqui_lantern234: @goatprince so does every many in this game! AYOOO
TalpTheScot: @DarkAbyssKeeper they have airships
DanTheMediocre: What I'm hearing is we gotta tell the guards some trivia and they'll let us in
TehAmelie: how many hundreds of thousands of money do we have now?
RocknGrohlNerd: 1500 gil? do you accept maggoty flesh?
malsareus: wait what did we pay that mans for?
jedi_master_zll: Pretty sure a whole chicken is more expensive than some feathers.
malsareus: we told HIM things
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: ooo! I have trivia for the guards! Do they want to know my thoughts on Season of the Seraph? That’ll take at LEAST three hours.
theymerLoviatar: @jedi_master_zll You're paying for the convenience of not having to remove the feathers from the chicken yourself
goatprince: okay but this time more uwu, graham
niccus: ah, so they're the oompa loompas before "gainful" "employment"
Orxolon: i hope they are singing it with that energy
thirsty_kitteh: Wow, we went from Moogle Union busting to Moogle trafficking! hurray! *cries*
malsareus: I find this exhange of goods and services dubious
jedi_master_zll: @theymerLoviatar Just skip a few steps and use the chicken as a pillow.
: @thirsty_kitteh it's only trafficking if they don't sing
xerjen: Why are there so many pots filled with money standing around?
theymerLoviatar: @jedi_master_zll do not recommend pillows with nails and a beak
nyperold: "If it's Moogles you seek, then I'm the Seeq for you!"
malsareus: damn conman
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @xerjen swear jars
urkleturtle: moogles can't catch a break in ivalice
DarkAbyssKeeper: Oh no, now you'll have to sell more maggots.
: @thirsty_kitteh I thought it's only trafficking if it is from the trafficking region of France otherwise, it is just sparkling involuntary relocation
Earthenone: we are members of the Moogle's of Ivalive Liberation Front, milf for short
malsareus: bring popcorn
plummeting_sloth: it's the most adorable riot
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: its gonna be the cutest fight ever
theymerLoviatar: do you hear the moogles sing, singing the song of angry mogs
scientist_captain: Moogle Rights!
beowuuf: cue bloodbath
ShatteredShamrock: inb4 moogles are just casting zetaflare
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh my god I want to see a moogle riot
jedi_master_zll: @theymerLoviatar Lol, I've used my cat as a pillow but they don't have a beak. Maybe that makes the difference.
RocknGrohlNerd: everyone new moogle dropped
Sorator13: *chants* moogle fight! moogle fight! moogle fight!
Andymonium: seize the means of production, kupo!
TXC2: I feel like this should be voiced
TehAmelie: we're gonna quell a moogle uprising? i really don't know what this game will do next
DanTheMediocre: It's a revoloogle!
BigDaddyBland87: oh wait!! The brawl can change? I had a guy punch another guy for stealing his hidden treasure
goatprince: moogles are I think canonically powerful with magic in this setting, so imagine firagas being thrown around
xerjen: Can we not go to the city and see the moogle fight instead?
malsareus: we the jetsons now boi
thirsty_kitteh: Fran already has a flying motorbike
theymerLoviatar: So it's still New Capenna?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: there’s moogles in bandana masks chucking back tear gas grenades and throwing Molotov cocktails
thirsty_kitteh: She crashed it in a cutscene
malsareus: no Wonder Dalmasca lost the war
LordManiMani: @theymerloviatar p much
: wait I thought we were gonna see the moogle riot, not some dumb buildings
plummeting_sloth: "Forget it Vaan, it's Moogletown"
ShatteredShamrock: Now you're a sheeple
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: why is penelo not also gawping at this
LadyLockwood92: Sure Vaan.
Spacecarl: No but you wanted to be a sky pirate, that involves travel
BigDaddyBland87: Character development...apparently
TXC2: I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo she knows how to be inconspicuous ?
malsareus: a lot over your head Vaan
bwk789: We’re the knights of the round… wait wrong FF
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: speaking of riots, if you haven’t seen that clip of a guy catching a tear gas grenade with a lacross stick and hurling it back, treat yourself.
: "wanna know whats amazing?" you mean other than how little Vaans changed?
Wolfstrike_NL: Vaan admitting he's a side character
ShatteredShamrock: "It's almost like I was tacked on at that last moment to shift our core demographic" -Vaan, probably
RocknGrohlNerd: hehe good vaan,(bad pun)
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: @TXC2 yeah fair, shes definitely better at low key flirting with Basch and Balthier
TXC2: it's a wet suit
theymerLoviatar: There's no way someone hasn't tried
plummeting_sloth: Not without an extreme amount of tap I imagine
accountmadeforants: Google images says yes, people have
plummeting_sloth: er, tape
ElektroTal: whose costume?
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: the moogles have killed 4 people already but it was adorable apparently
malsareus: a onesie
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Vaan is the Raiden of this setting I.e. side character whose POV we inhabit in order to appreciate how amazing the main characters are
LadyLockwood92: Penelo's, not Ashe's. It's a Romper essentially.
northos: google has a bunch of results and they still look pretty silly imo
TXC2: ElektroTal Penelo's
LidofLoathing: From my brief Google, some people make it work
LordManiMani: "Waaay down, Archades-town! Way down under the ground!"
Robot_Bones: HI I'm Captain Bocsh Von ronsenburg of Dalmasca

malsareus: let's pick a fight to make Balthier come back
ShatteredShamrock: I must go to the farce!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: alright Balthier has to go pick up his dry cleaning I guess
Andymonium: brb updating my twitter name to "Farce-Goer"
ElektroTal: imagine having to be the person who has to localize all of these
laundreydhull: I did intend for a music major, back in grade school anyway.
Izandai: The nameless NPC titles in this game are pretty good.
ShamelessMatt: I mean, rompers are in, pauldrons should be in. The outfit could work
MrAyeAxe: I'd like to see someone try basch without it looking like a bunch of random clothing scraps stuck together lol
1fairy2boots: It is so random what people just tell strangers here.
Genie_M: Oh time to run around a lot
Spacecarl: that old lady just pushed you
ylegm: time for hypercapitalism!
jacqui_lantern234: YOURE VERY VERY COOL, GRAHAM
plummeting_sloth: "We better not show our faces to much in imperial space" Vaan "HI Mr Enemy Soldier!"
Scarbble: heckin youts
BigDaddyBland87: I wonder if Graham remembers the "gimmick" of this town. It was a rude reminder for me
Manae: I still can't get over Penelo's boots basically each having their own chaps
plummeting_sloth: hey, he didn't say who's sacrifice
plummeting_sloth: he could still be right
MrAyeAxe: This game and God of War II definitely blew my teenage mins at how good games could look
Didero: stores dot loadingreadyrun dot com
ShatteredShamrock: y'know our good pal Grool Granch
plummeting_sloth: mmm... Hidden Valley Granch, taste the flavor
TXC2: good old Granch
Invitare: what do they commemorate?
PsychoI3oy: Heinz is getting out of control, mixing gravy and ranch
urkleturtle: @1fairy2boots I mean social media has shown just how much people are willing to tell to total strangers
Earthenone: thats why vaan dosent get to hold the money
TheMandrew: And here we have a plate of that time we roflstomped Dalmasca
Spacecarl: got a starbucks order for... Granch?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Granch, my favorite member of LeadingRuddyRan
DanTheMediocre: @PsychoI3oy They would, wouldnt they
BigDaddyBland87: He doesn't remember...store is on bottom floor
: @Earthenone because he provides little else to this story (im sorry)
TehAmelie: and then Parappa the Rapper shows up
thirsty_kitteh: this is why Gil is just left around in old arcades, it's not the big curreency up here
Didero: "excuse me, sir, what the HELL are you talking about?"
TheMandrew: This part i feel like something got messed up in the localization
plummeting_sloth: does.... does this empire know about gold?
malsareus: what is this mans on about
1fairy2boots: @1fairy2boots True that.
Invitare: chop chop
: you will in a minute
thirsty_kitteh: It's a New Currency!
: Graham said "Chopmaster" in such a way that the Bots Master theme played in my head
plummeting_sloth: seems like Gold would be better
Earthenone: thats the towns gimic, it will be explained better soon
Scarbble: seems like you don't have the chops
: I never quite understood what the whole deal with chops and sandalwood was about.
goatprince: you CAN get the fancy chop here, which is only useful for side quest stuff. the plain chop is needed shortly.
: im loud, too!!!
Genie_M: You will
Earthenone: regualr store is downstairs
Firewhiskers: Chops are the mutton bits you grow on your face
malsareus: find a pine and chops it down?
BigDaddyBland87: Store is downstairs
Andymonium: oh hey a chonky boi
northos: an entire magic set?
theymerLoviatar: @Firewhiskers eh, I find they make one look sheepish
BigDaddyBland87: Chop is for something else
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: chops like the personal seals?
nyperold: Pine chops are good with a little mint jelly.
TehAmelie: ha, a mindflayer, just like that
Firewhiskers: @Firewhiskers Well played
bwk789: Is it indestructible?
plummeting_sloth: I hope I can beat this terrifying monster so I can earn some... slivers of wood?
TehAmelie: Granch is my new favorite name
Mangledpixel: Cool Granch
: is Granch the cousin o Grinch?
: how are we to hunt it it's indestructable?
plummeting_sloth: you're a cool one, Mr Granch
TehAmelie: a more crynchy gaunch
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @jacqui_lantern234 dollar store Grinch
theymerLoviatar: Happy Novelist? Truly, this is a fantasy game
TehAmelie: crunchy, even
jacqui_lantern234: Spirit of Holloween Grinch costume
DanTheMediocre: Granch of the Hidden Valley
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: "as natural as a cool ranch dorito" has been in my lexicon ever seen someone used it to describe the audience for american idol
mwlsn: people won't tell you this but the key to getting started as a novelist is to buy a good pair of novelist boots
BigDaddyBland87: @theymerLoviatar You beat me to it
niccus: maybe i *would* try a gremolata ranch
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: It’s like when they have to get rid of all the World Series tshirts for the team that didn’t win, someone had to dump a load of misprinted “Granch who stole Christmas” merch
TehAmelie: Midnight in the Granch of Good and Evil
theymerLoviatar: @mwlsn these boots are made for writin'
mwlsn: Prithee nuncle
Sorator13: How are gambits... "pretty"?
ShatteredShamrock: He's everyone's Nun Uncle
goatprince: gambits are cards, yes.
plummeting_sloth: wait, what are gambits outside of the mechanics of combat in this world?
Invitare: this is a card game
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Gambit IS pretty fun thank you
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: somethings dont need to be in canon
Invitare: Wheeler should play it
Earthenone: hence the X-man
TXC2: is Nuncle your step uncle ?
: this has been a card game all along
goatprince: cards that compel you to do things.
malsareus: you were playing MTG the whole time
LurkerSpine: magic the gambitting
TehAmelie: gambits are punch cards, right?
theymerLoviatar: It's a post-FF8 FF, has to have a card game
: I like to think that these citizens know knowledge is money in archades and they're sharing all of this with poor street rat vaan so he can sell it late for food
Leliale: Gambit the Gathering
ShatteredShamrock: it's magic the gathering specifically when Grand Calculatron is on the field
Leonhart321: Magic the gambitting
DarkAbyssKeeper: So in combat, you're all deciding what to do based on your favourite decks?
niccus: so this is the world where robo rally got big instead of mtg
1fairy2boots: Ok, so next Is This Your Card is FFXII?
MonteTribal: Slap Chop time
LordManiMani: Like Laws in the FFTA games presumably 😅
plummeting_sloth: So, if you're not playing with a full deck, does that mean you don't have a lot of gambit slots and are pretty simple?
Masslost: At least those cards didn’t wind up in a landfill
TehAmelie: hehe, "punch" cards, i didn't even think
t3h_f1gm3nt: so someone was right in an earlier stream saying that gambis ARE the minigame for this game LuL
BigDaddyBland87: yea I really don't get why all the stores have a chopmaster. You only need one
xerjen: Once-Commander, now only modern
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: they’re playing Commander?
RocknGrohlNerd: mainly moxfield
santural: @masslost omg that story was BONKERS
ylegm: Chops are basically scrip then?
malsareus: why is there no buy all button for these?
mwlsn: lots of chop shops in this city
Spacecarl: aoe spell usage for those?
ShatteredShamrock: AoE attacks yeah
MonteTribal: 'Ally: Many foes' is good for like, Protect
BigDaddyBland87: Buff I would assume
LordShadner: cast a buff?
Didero: Maybe protect the party's Tank?
Radjack: AoE buffs?
Leonhart321: Bubble? Regen?
Earthenone: maybe to buff allys only in larger fights to save mana?
mwlsn: sing a song of inspiration
ShatteredShamrock: oh so like, haste and ally when theres a ton of enemies to speed up the fight
DanTheMediocre: Defensive buffs?
xerjen: Buff, yes
Manae: Shell and Protect?
TheMandrew: lure maybe for the tank
Spacecarl: haste up if swarmed perhaps
azraeldagda: I used them to setup haste on my allies.
DarkAbyssKeeper: They can be sacrificed.
Leonhart321: There is a thing as too specific a case
ShatteredShamrock: @TheMandrew ohh yeah that's also good
BigDaddyBland87: And there's her dad
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: your dad wanted you to be a mad scientist?
bwk789: Right, we’re going to draklor. I completely forgot why we were here
TXC2: I scienced so hard last night!

shurtal: you take the skycab to the skymall
evilspoons983: science is a many-splendored thing! science lifts us up where we belong!
ogundiety: Look at me talking when htere's science to do
Andymonium: be sure to bring some kind of exile effect
Earthenone: just banish it
shurtal: better than Coldsteel
Spacecarl: gotta stock up on some exile I guess
Andymonium: maybe some -1/-1 counters
TehAmelie: we're gonna need some removal spells is all
mwlsn: "Appreciator of Shields"? How do I get this job?
DanTheMediocre: gotta buy a Shadowspear I guess
nyperold: All you need is scientific inquiry, scientific inquiry...
: Spacecarl like that's hard these days
: Penelo is a white mage, she has exile
LordManiMani: I thought the Senate openly threatened the Emperor's succession?
plummeting_sloth: that's a serving tray, not a weapon
Didero: Looks more like a sled
land_manatee: Not for humans
malsareus: presentation sword
mwlsn: Just starin at some shields, nodding appreciatively
Juliamon: That's a monhun weapon, I bet
TehAmelie: i think i saw that in Fist of the North Star
: G, someos of us don't have a subscription to cut scenes
urkleturtle: "too big to be called a sword"
theinvisiblevoice: fish knife
: It's for ogres.
: that's a knife
A_Dub888: Monster Hunter's looking at that and thinking "I can lift that"
Earthenone: my old LGS hung giant cards, i guess its like that?
creasehearst: they're waiting for Guts to come by and pick up his spare blade
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: “the many-splendored thing that is scientific inquiry” me, watching a Twitch stream at my desk so I don’t start crying over the endless software bugs in this physics simulation: …right.
RamblingRhetoric: It's like a sword for an iron giant from ffvii
Spacecarl: oooh, poison
plummeting_sloth: union rules, can't have both items sold by the same seller
TehAmelie: oo it's way too polished and balanced for Guts' style
DarkAbyssKeeper: "Why are you different?" !? How rude, Graham.
Mangledpixel: I like to think it's the same Chopmaster, he just runs quickly from shop to shop through back corridors
BigDaddyBland87: a what crossbow?
TXC2: to be fair, making a sword like that would be an impressive show of blacksmithing
malsareus: I vote for the DOOM mace
: @BigDaddyBland87 It fires sabots.

ShatteredShamrock: I love the idea of a white mage/monk. I punch, you feel better HIYAH

Mazrae: What about the one when you were a child clone
mwlsn: wasn't there one that they kept changing into a different game? You'd go back and play it again every few months and it woudl be completely different
bwk789: Ah the USB finding clip
: LordManiMani well, YOU might not
t3h_f1gm3nt: yeah quivering i think is the only multi-session W+P game.
TXC2: mwlsn Time ramaside
: number go up, bigly
Gekyouryuu: Fair. Mostly I just wanted to make the Watch and Play it Forward joke
TehAmelie: Time Ramesside/Z-17 has not updated in many years
t3h_f1gm3nt: oh yeah time ramaside
mwlsn: @TXC2 that was it, yeah!
TehAmelie: Jason Welge
PsychoI3oy: Time Ramesside (A New Reckoning)
TehAmelie: X-17 it was
mwlsn: wasn't that also the one with the infinite spider spawner
LordShadner: none of which good
RaidenFirewing: I'm currently rewatching alot of Watch and Play and I just got that episode
RaidenFirewing: it was hilarious
PsychoI3oy: oh hey, it's on sale for $0.49
TXC2: "who writes this stuff?" "YOU! YOU DO!"
theymerLoviatar: the welge, the rare fusion of the wedge and the bulge
bwk789: Also the vogue spoof magazine called Dogue
Mazrae: What was the game that you were a clone of a child that had died and the mother started hating you more and more as the game goes on
plummeting_sloth: the infinite spider spawner
Gekyouryuu: "Who welge? "A dinner." Vs. "It is my cat."."
Mangledpixel: can we not make fun of their name? there are so many things about their actual work to make fun of instead
jacqui_lantern234: Pyjama Lasagna
plummeting_sloth: ah there should be a spell called Lasagna then
BrowneePoints: Mambo No 5 but it's FF Spells Graham
TXC2: Mangledpixel I doubt it's their real name
accountmadeforants: These weapons are antiques!
Critterbot: Yeah, a lot of those are very old.
accountmadeforants: Should fetch a pretty penny
LordManiMani: Y'all got to the end of the demo of Interstellar Prime (headless space mining). I'd love to see that one come back
goatprince: (berserk is useful for making a powerful melee attacker)
Mangledpixel: TXC2 it is an actual German surname, so yes, it very well could be
TehAmelie: we can make fun of the part where he often tries to sound like a whole production company by calling himself "J and Welge"
TXC2: Mangledpixel oh really, ok then
Gekyouryuu: @browneepoints a little bit of Firaga in my life, a little bit of Blizaga by my side...
plummeting_sloth: don't sell the Sledgehammers, you can sell them to twin guardians Peter and Gabriel
shurtal: well, it wasn't fire
Mazrae: G, question, What was the game that you were a clone of a child that had died and the mother started hating you more and more as the game goes on
malsareus: Balthier will remember that G
Squigel: its a haste aswell
jacqui_lantern234: !card berserk
LRRbot: Berserk [G] | Instant | Cast this spell only before the combat damage step. / Target creature gains trample and gets +X/+0 until end of turn, where X is its power. At the beginning of the next end step, destroy that creature if it attacked this turn.
nyperold: Guess we'll have to dance to something else, then.
ShatteredShamrock: ATK up, DEF up, lose control? I think?
jacqui_lantern234: hehehehehe Berserk, G
shurtal: does damage up, too, i believe
Sorator13: I would consider keeping the element resistent ones for specific fights where they may be useful...
LadyLockwood92: @Mazrae Wasn't that on Let's Nope?
Juliamon: Mazrae That sounds like Mothered, which was a Nope game
urkleturtle: yeah, significant damage up
Critterbot: It also does make them stronger.
: it's good for harder boss fights when you want your tank to just go
mhbmk2: in most ff games it's str increase
plummeting_sloth: Hey game, I always mindlessly attack, this isn't an improvement
accountmadeforants: "Berserk increases the speed at which ATB charges to 200% of the normal speed, and attack damage to 150% of normal damage" sez the wiki
Squigel: "Berserk increases the speed at which ATB charges to 200% of the normal speed, and attack damage to 150% of normal damage, while forcing the victim to attack nearby targets uncontrollably" from the wiki
Didero: No reason not to just buy all the spells, right?
Carlioo: would you call A the berserk button?
goatprince: berserk is so useful they made it a buff rather than a debuff
Mazrae: That was a let's nope game I thought it was a W+P game
ShaneLeeAtk: Time for Science!
Earthenone: on my first playthrough i made fran a beserker would auto beserk herself and just go ham
Orxolon: Basch+berserker=watch them fall
Mangledpixel: "Berserk doubles the speed at which ATB charges and boosts attack damage to 150% of normal damage"
A_Dub888: Graham "Attack Mindlessly" Stark
accountmadeforants: So sounds like it triples your DPS
Didero: Lego Technic?
ShatteredShamrock: Yeah iirc Berserk is pretty key for gambits
mwlsn: Attack and mindlessly dethrone god
plummeting_sloth: I want a weapon that does mindfull-lessly, where you really center yourself and think about what an attack really means before walloping someone
Orxolon: she's Amanda
Didero: Maybe that IS their name, you don't know
northos: not enough chops to have their own name
malsareus: it's their house name
Earthenone: Technick seller sell me your strongest techniks?
abracadaver23: Granch sounds like an alternate universe graham
accountmadeforants: Please, Technick Seller was my father, call me Nick
ShatteredShamrock: it's because the moogles have infested the technic store, and stole their name
Gekyouryuu: Technic Ian
Genie_M: Technik is first name
mwlsn: The other person was the Magickery Proprietor
HavenDragon: her surname is Seller
doctorbear: Traveler pog
BigDaddyBland87: Ohhh I love granch with my chocobo wings
LadyLockwood92: Must have fallen foul of the Fae.
plummeting_sloth: Please give your name, your race and your occupation "Uh, Technic Seller, Technic Seller, Technic Seller"
: He’s right there Graham!
TehAmelie: give me five of your most technical technics, shopkeep
Earthenone: its so shady!
BigDaddyBland87: It's blocked right now
Lizardman175: can't yet
goatprince: it was blocked off anyway
mhbmk2: if this is the beginning of the game it's a wind storm
Mangledpixel: the shaded path. it's crosshatched.
goatprince: unless you have a chocobo
Judders__: Its soo shaded and path like
ShatteredShamrock: they have Nurse Joy syndrome
nyperold: One of them should be something like "Shousand Island" or "Brench".
mwlsn: It's a franchise
plummeting_sloth: it's the same guy, he sprints from Chop shop to chop shop ahead of you
TehAmelie: one day the chopmaster will invent the chopping mall
Mangledpixel: sky cab. skab.
plummeting_sloth: I will start calling the local ones "land cabs" around here
shurtal: can you take a skycab to the skymall?
mwlsn: Sadly, never having learned the finger-whistle, I'm unable to catch taxis
: I meeeeean we're not THAT far off
LordManiMani: This dink
LadyLockwood92: What a dick.
BigDaddyBland87: Plot demands you do

Sorator13: "A boy pays."
mhbmk2: we're so poor with our 200K gil
goatprince: you're blocked otherwise
Sorator13: Does he?
LordManiMani: Declining can only make him ask again
Invitare: ah the Illusion of Choice
goatprince: until you pay
BigDaddyBland87: you just stay here
DanTheMediocre: didnt the chop shop have a text option for 'what are chops'?
Genie_M: You have the money
malsareus: this is r00d game
Diabore: if you dont pay i guess PIF is done
: Something about got me thinking he looked fitted to host an Apple Keynote bit in the Steve Jobs apparel back in CTS Glurps.
Arikell: Pretty sure if you decline he just waits here until you pay him
mhbmk2: you can refuse to pay, you can also choose to spend your whole life in rabinastre getting old and starting a family
BigDaddyBland87: This minigame is just TEDIOUS
plummeting_sloth: Fran just staring DEATH
LadyLockwood92: I disagree, Vaan. That sounds bad.
mwlsn: I always shake down tourists when they're struggling with the Metro card machines
LurkerSpine: please Fran just muder him
Earthenone: Fran remembers him from the polycule?
raulghoulia: this heaved in the first release
malsareus: 1 morning we will find 1 finger in a pool of blood
TotallyNotaBeholder: If looks could kill Fran would be a walking natural disaster
Leonhart321: Fran: I know what you're doing, but he needs to learn the lesson
TXC2: "if i stare at him maybe he will catch fire"
LordManiMani: Isn't Eviscerate one of Ashe's quickenings 😄
goatprince: time for a game of Memory!
DanTheMediocre: Jules is reduced to cinder by force of glare alone
Mr_Horrible: "Yes, I will attempt to swindle this person who can kick a melon-sized hole through my chest"
nyperold: Got it memorized?
Earthenone: yeah vaans brainspace is limited
TehAmelie: for the most part it's a wild guess which npcs might be part of the polycule, but this one seems like a given
Spacecarl: ah yes your group of 6 can only hold one thought in their mind at a time
mwlsn: "Sure, I can tell you how to purchase fare downtown. That'll be $500"
niccus: finally, himbo representation
Diabore: yeah, you cant remember anything else if you memorize this 1 thing, not even your name
plummeting_sloth: Vaan is like a pokemon, he can only memorize like 4 things at a time and he really like saying his own name
laundreydhull: @mr_horrible so a cannonball gutshot
Spacecarl: I guess 5 currently
DanTheMediocre: It's vaan of course he has space for exactly one (1) thought
BigDaddyBland87: you never have to change screens to find people BTW

Genie_M: This is a pain
TXC2: so long LadyLockwood92 stay safe
LostThePirate: This is a very tedious quest, lol
TehAmelie: VC. . .venture capitalism?
plummeting_sloth: "A chop for your trouble" *slaps you in the face*
TXC2: "where's my wife!"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: grad student wage cut…too real
TXC2: TehAmelie Voice chat I think
mwlsn: Somebody tell the Failed Researcher that research is a cumulative process with lots of ups and downs?
laundreydhull: Wait, is this a getting even with this *Fran* character I'm hearing of?
Mazrae: I don't remember this
ylegm: and your work is done
ylegm: there will be no further questions
Earthenone: you helped the faded starlet decide to write a novella
TXC2: the only way your research fails is if you don't do it
evilspoons983: are they gonna "get you arrested"?
TXC2: man remember when phone calls were real ?
Carlioo: looks like the bot has started screaming at you
northos: @TXC2 sure don't
plummeting_sloth: Vaan just gets up on a plinth "ALRIGHT, EVERYONE THAT NEEDS ADVICE ON MY RIGHT, EVERYONE WITH ADVICE ON MY LEFT"
MonteTribal: just have
Genie_M: You can get lots
malsareus: I got several from and i quote without translation "the dutch ministry of justice" which was kinda funny
Squigel: there's a sidequest that requires you to do all the chops
goatprince: Revolutionary Dish Utena
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: “Revolutionary dish” isn’t that just a lazy Susan?
BigDaddyBland87: did he need 3?
plummeting_sloth: anyway here's some pocket bacon
GDwarble: @goatprince Ah, Sarazanmai
HiimDant: can't say I've had carmel tomato fishbones, and I don't know that I want to
Spluuga: I definitely do identify as a dangerous chef..
TXC2: goatprince you joke, but that sounds real
goatprince: 'a cistern will do!'
malsareus: Kate koolaid mans through the wall
jacqui_lantern234: assister? i hardly know her!
DarkAbyssKeeper: Assist 'er? Don't even know 'er!
CanPlayGames: What if youre actually looking for a nun?
plummeting_sloth: *has Baltier fire his gun in the air* Everybody on the ground! Now... who here is a sister in trouble"
goatprince: there's, like, 28 of these
Diabore: a lot
LostThePirate: Too many, lol
malsareus: oh lord
goatprince: 4 sets, for each section of the arcades map
goatprince: you only need to do around 7
BigDaddyBland87: you don't need them all
BigDaddyBland87: all of them
MonteTribal: all 28
goatprince: the fancy one? all of them
Leonhart321: All of them
goatprince: the fancy one is only needed for a sidequest
BigDaddyBland87: and the reward is NOT worth it
: well strap in then chat
Carlioo: do they actually want you to go between areas for these?
MonteTribal: they are
Earthenone: yeah memory games are zone locked
Critterbot: I don't remember whether you get anything special if you get them all or not.
plummeting_sloth: it's weird that something that seems like it's important market of a pretty stratefied imperial hierarchy can be earned by like... running back and forth talking to people
plummeting_sloth: Imperials REALLY don't believe in communication I guess
Meecespieces: Imperials have middlemen for communication, like vaan.
mwlsn: Me, in a meeting, picking "do nothing" instead of "commit this tale to memory"
malsareus: all of this running around could've been an email
: mwlsn basically me in school
nyperold: You don't expect them to just talk to each other for FREE, do you?
Squigel: i think you can use left and right on the dpad to highlight people without walking up to them
Squigel: makes finding people alot easier on this section
DarkAbyssKeeper: Every time the "commit this to memory" pops up, I hear the Motion City Soundtrack song.
MrVirite: has the tarot reader been done? if so you can talk to them again for a remaining count
Sorator13: wait, what? how do you do that??
Sorator13: @Squigel ah, I see
plummeting_sloth: Imperial society would collapse into estacy or anarchy if someone just put up, like, a message board
Sorator13: I don't think I knew that
Sorator13: @plummeting_sloth You assume they can read
Sorator13: they *do* have message boards; no one uses them
Sorator13: except hunters
Orxolon: now performing live,lady of the street,her song:oh my
DarkAbyssKeeper: I came to Plead, not to Read.
plummeting_sloth: Just read a book my guy
Sorator13: Yknow, no one ever wrote a song about "the client's daughter"
Sorator13: they've written songs about the farmer's daughter, and the shepherd's daughter
Sorator13: but never the client's daughter
mwlsn: 'twas not always so, but now 'tis! 'Twould be most rewarding for you to consider this tale!
shurtal: is this a Pinewood Chop Derby?
nyperold: Even one that mentions the "captain's daughter".
BigDaddyBland87: you should be good now
theymerLoviatar: at least you can yakety sax run
TXC2: Sorator13 it's hard to rhyme client in a country rhythm
HiimDant: imagine gaming in a world with no turbo button
Meecespieces: I feel like this mini game is at least half of the decision making process behind x2/x4 speed
ShatteredShamrock: What'd you call me?
ShaneLeeAtk: Any Looter Scooters?
TehAmelie: any Lutefisk enthusiasts?
Gekyouryuu: Hail Lutan!
Sorator13: @TXC2 fair
mwlsn: I'm referring to my violin repair guy as a "looter" instead of a "luthier" from here on out
Critterbot: I mean... I've seen you play Deus Machina.
dimeadozent: Hey Graham, found this game for super cheap for ps2 at a game shop and started playing because of this series!
theymerLoviatar: that seemed like a man who likes a luthier shooter
nyperold: The lute! The warrant!
Mangledpixel: an Artisarchitect
goatprince: you joke but there are 10 crafting jobs in ff14
Gekyouryuu: Archisan? Artitect?
Andymonium: it's the new thief-acrobat
TXC2: what are the chances?!
mwlsn: @Gekyouryuu "artitect" got me for some reason
Sorator13: @goatprince we don't talk about omnicrafters
HiimDant: to be fair, there's only 8 crafters in xiv. and three gatherers.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: “Mostly artisan, but I took a level in architect last time we leveled up”
A_Dub888: I'm an Artisan. I'm an Architect. I'm a combination Artisan Architict
BigDaddyBland87: 3-5 to use the taxi
TehAmelie: at least our party makes 6+ hunters
theymerLoviatar: @goatprince the collective groan of "noooo my pentamelds" every time a new BiS crafter set gets released
shurtal: where do you upgrade those to Ric Flair Chops?
Spluuga: I'm def multiclassing artist gambler..
ShatteredShamrock: jeez how many bosch are there in this city, i thought he was twins not omnituplets
Juliamon: If you get them all you get some underwhelming loot, you're otherwise probably set

BigDaddyBland87: That story is kinda wild
HavenDragon: the Juggler sounds like a Batman villain
plummeting_sloth: Jokes on you Vaan, there's actually 4 look alikes and you just accused an innocent man
nyperold: "I only have this one model, don't blame me for looking like I'm still wearing earrings!"
Meecespieces: FFXII, Thrilling monster combats and interpersonal mediation! Become a hero of light and/or therapist today!
BigDaddyBland87: read this story
evilspoons983: who the hell designs this and goes 'this is fun'
TXC2: evilspoons983 devs on a time crunch
ShatteredShamrock: Oh this a quest where you just stir the pot, gotcha
raulghoulia: these people should solve their own problems. It's silly to have one 16 year old immigrant do all this communication
Sorator13: @Meecespieces "conflict: resolved"
plummeting_sloth: "Really, someone actually likes tehm? Well, i'll change my opinion on liking it then?" Geez, someone get this lade the internet, this is not how these arguments go
Andymonium: sidequest: get traumabombed
BigDaddyBland87: Told ya
Juliamon: That was fucked up
evilspoons983: @raulghoulia yeah, this is a whole 'give a man a fish / teach a man to fish' situation
noSmokeFire: <dark souls font> TRAUMA UNLOCKED
Didero: I thought I wasn't a slow reader, but the speed at which LRRsfolk go through textboxes proves that wrong
Spacecarl: This is a WILD decision to put this sequence in here when you get to the enemy capital and want to hail a taxi
DarkAbyssKeeper: Vaan collecting chopping boards.
Carlioo: you slap someone on the chest?
bytecaster: they are just pork chopos
goatprince: access to a side quest room
MonteTribal: yo do
ShatteredShamrock: I think they're just wood chunks
Helrumyc: like acting chops?
Juliamon: Nothing that's actually worth getting them all
BigDaddyBland87: access to a special area...NOT WORTH IT
Punching_Bag: more chops?
plummeting_sloth: a pinewood chop is where they break a white pine 2 x 4 over you
shurtal: you slam your hand , palm open, onto another man's chest, to produce a loud noise
evilspoons983: the quest should be giving them all interpersonal relationship therapy
Spacecarl: the cliffhanger!
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!
BigDaddyBland87: time to watch unskippable
niccus: they tax you a couple gil every time you make an "archades nuts" joke and it's done wonders for public infrastructure
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: To be fair, as someone not good at asking for things, this is about how complicated it feels for me to hail a taxi.
Didero: Time to watch the latest Crapshot!
Spacecarl: its a good one
Sorator13: (I hear tuptuptup-ing)
thirsty_kitteh: So, as to "what is a chop?" more properly, I think it is coming from the translation of a type of seal from east asia. My "interpretation" of this sequence is that you're getting bits of paper stamped with the seal of various nobles, as an indication of your good standing -- but I'm taking a long walk to reach that conclusion
Mangledpixel: so, 'chop' in this context is probably the meaning that's taken from the Hindi word छाप (chāp) meaning 'stamp' or 'seal'
Didero: Update: Crapshot good!
evilspoons983: it probably has to do with the phrase "he's got the chops"
TXC2: TehAmelie fantastic
thirsty_kitteh: mangledpixel: Oh that's where the derviviation comes from! I did wonder, as it is "seal" in a lot of places
TehAmelie: i spent so long capturing the exact moment when he breaks
Didero: I'm hearing footsteps
Earthenone: maybe G forgot to transition scenes
TXC2: and we're back
TehAmelie: hi again!
TehAmelie: such tireless npcs
Carlioo: all choppy
Sorator13: Oh yeah, we knew; I just enjoyed the tuptuptup
A_Dub888: Graham "Silly with Chops" Stark
Mangledpixel: in case G missed it: so, 'chop' in this context is probably the meaning that's taken from the Hindi word छाप (chāp) meaning 'stamp' or 'seal'
Spacecarl: does talking to the chopmasters now do anything useful?
EricTheOrange: pats side of Graham, this man can fit so many chops
Cptasparagus: Pork chops?
MrVirite: moms chop-getti?
Didero: Wait, that cab's closed-off? That seems unhealthy and boring, give me windows!
Spacecarl: Balthier, you jerk. he clearly has chops
Spacecarl: left us to do that while he did things
plummeting_sloth: "Oh god, you people have problems too, huh"
goatprince: no chops here. the bad gameplay is ahead of you.
TXC2: sounds like someones doing some chops in the background
Nosser2: Bless you, anonymous sneezer.
Didero: Wait, casualties? Didn't they go arrest some old men?
goatprince: thanks chat, now my soul won't be stolen
urkleturtle: that impression was impeccable
Izandai: What a cock.
hammith: As a tall man, it's not that satisfying
EricTheOrange: I always said subtulty is for cowards
plummeting_sloth: just sprite hunted your way into a cutscene
plummeting_sloth: I NEEDED CHOPS DUDE
CanPlayGames: Baxter just wants to be part of this
Didero: why were you keeping your cat in your mouth in the first place?
: and that cat hair has been in there how long?
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: can we punch this dude now please
EricTheOrange: Like a lot of stuff makes the rich literally live ABOVE the poor. And some would say that's too on the nose, I say the more explicit the better.
Sorator13: careful, G, you don't want to get that sentence wrong...
goatprince: they're so divorced
Dantt2022: will there be a watch & play today? The calendar on your website is broken...
DarkAbyssKeeper: Sorry I was doing something else and zoned out. "Chop my weiner?"?
Carlioo: starting to think this guy sucks
plummeting_sloth: yeah, actually
BusTed: Yeah, this does seem pivotal.
Spacecarl: these bits do seem story relevant. its odd
Leonhart321: I was just thinking that
TXC2: why aren't these voiced ?
evilspoons983: so this game doesn't have voice acting...?
TXC2: evilspoons983 it does, just not now
thirsty_kitteh: evilspoons983: it does in the pre-rendered cut scenes
DanTheMediocre: Probably because Jules isnt voiced
EricTheOrange: how does one pronounce a doubble F?
mwlsn: Not voiced because no one could pronounce "Ffamran"
MonteTribal: @EricTheOrange fuh fah
ScrapyardGhostTrain: @mwlsn Famran, as opposed to vamran.
MrAyeAxe: I always felt this little pre-draklor part in the city was a little rushed, there's that little scene with basch and the teens and that's it
EricTheOrange: does this game have long distance low poly models?
TehAmelie: something is sure off with the perspective though
evilspoons983: it's probably a situation like a skybox
raulghoulia: "considering the people up on the mountain" ominous
TXC2: you want to go THERE?
mendokusai_jamesdean: Could it be because of the colouring of the background?
mwlsn: "You want to go *there*, eh?" seems like it ought to be accompanied by a wink wink nudge nudge
EricTheOrange: balthier is the gay?
plummeting_sloth: "You two, you were BUDDIES, eh"
BigDaddyBland87: So there ends the filler episode
Carlioo: game has good dialogue
TheMentalMonk: I love balthier
Snowcookies: close enough for fisticuffs
plummeting_sloth: hey voices again
TXC2: ah pre-rendered time
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Ff is Welsh, equivalent to an English F. A Welsh F is an English V.
plummeting_sloth: I was worried we broke the game somehow
Didero: Wait, why was that singular part voiced?
raulghoulia: already had a beach episode
EricTheOrange: I do like balthiers dialouge. Like he smug but doesn't come off as an asshole or a prick like most smug charecters do.
Carlioo: only good things could come out of a place called draklor
Orxolon: you meant Darklord?no,no,Draklor
MrAyeAxe: The more I think about it the more it seems likely that the chop stuff wasn't originally in the game but they had to pad the archades bit, hence the Jules stuff not being voice acted
laundreydhull: No u fools! Tis a trap!!
thirsty_kitteh: I think that's the ...12th way to say "Shut Up, Vaan"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Oh god I forgot Balthier is Devrim
goatprince: I hope you're ready for a terrible puzzle dungeon
Sorator13: well, I would expect a foot to be a foot, at least
MonteTribal: lady squad
Sorator13: so yes, something is indeed a foot
BigDaddyBland87: Balthier, don't confuse optimistic with stupid
creasehearst: it's still present it sounds like
plummeting_sloth: Had to be called Draklor huh... couldn't be like FluffyBunnyCo Enterprises
Mangledpixel: "Something may be afoot" "Is it this?" "Close, that's a hand."
Didero: I think it may just be the sound of Science in the background?
Sorator13: oh, that's definitely clipping, heard that
Didero: Free loot!
MonteTribal: is this the star wars soundtrack?
Snowcookies: it sounds abit staticy
shurtal: HURT ME SNEK
raulghoulia: Grey Fox!
HunterLionheart: Damn you Grey Fox
Invitare: Grey Fox?
mwlsn: maybe it's just nap time
cassaclyzm: Rut roh!
EricTheOrange: my game sound is getting kinda choppy but that could just be my stream
Sorator13: it almost sounds like a cable is loose
Earthenone: it was red XII
: @plummeting_sloth Because nobody would trust Fluffy Bunny Corp., obviously.
mhbmk2: it's the triplet music from Mars Bringer of War
TXC2: "'cause no one at all can stand the sound...of science"
mhbmk2: which is now forever associated with Star Wars
Mangledpixel: maybe a save and reload when you can?
Didero: Yeah, sure, don't question the wounded soldier further, very smart Team
BusTed: You're that ninja...
Sorator13: Okay, I got it
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Balthier’s voice is especially confusing now because Devrim is a main NPC in the season that started yesterday so now I’m hearing him all the time
: reminds me of shinra building in 7
plummeting_sloth: Direct Lift needs more chops, obviously

A_Dub888: @mwlsn You say that, but a mass sleep spell is plausible given Final Fantasy
TXC2: SUB HYPE LETHAL
raulghoulia: @Earthenone I was thinking the same thing
DarkAbyssKeeper: Game crashes. Sends you back to chop times.
Didero: "help me..." "ok bye!"
TXC2: DarkAbyssKeeper don't you put that evil on us
TWCblank: nah, he's an imperial, he'll be fine.
EricTheOrange: "that's good sanke, hand to hand is the basis of all combat. the clashing of bone and sinue>"

BigDaddyBland87: "are you plot relevant?" "No" "Bye, then"
Mazrae: He'll be fine with that imperial healthcare
LurkerSpine: why do *they* have smileys?
Earthenone: we are innocent wanted fugitives breaking into the lab!
: I swear this music is mixing ride of the Valkyries and the imperial march
goatprince: graham, don't sell yourself short. you didn't do crap YET.
Gekyouryuu: This music feels like a mashup of Star Wars music and A Night on Bald Mountain
thirsty_kitteh: might be on my end, but it seems G is now only in my left channel?
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: that was straight up flight of the Valkyries for a second
: 'Give the Princess a Katana' - sounds like an anime Beej would review
EricTheOrange: CD's nuts?
shurtal: the Cid Distrobution Bureau?
plummeting_sloth: they scattered books and papers? THE MONSTERS
Sorator13: omg, papers on the floor??? WOW
theymerLoviatar: If You Give A Princess A Katana
Carlioo: the dead imperials corrupted the music
Sorator13: better zoom in on those!
plummeting_sloth: CDBeeze nutz wait no
TheMerricat: Chat is it wrong that I'm in love with how Fran talks and sounds?
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Cid Design Bureau, probably.
Gekyouryuu: C Deez Balls
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: do they have any idea how much time it takes to arrange books
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.
Sorator13: @TheMerricat no, it is right
Carlioo: @TheMerricat no, it rules
EricTheOrange: was this the first Final Fantasy game with an evil Cid?
BigDaddyBland87: And now puzzle begins
goatprince: ff8 had an evil cid
TXC2: TheMerricat if i's wrong then I don't want to be right
Sorator13: well.... "evil" is a strong word
Earthenone: this game has cid and al-cid
nyperold: Maybe they'll hurt themselves in their confusion.
HavenDragon: CDB... Cid, Doctor Bastard?
Sorator13: for ff8 cid, I mean
noSmokeFire: is it just me, or is Vaan a real secondary character of a protagonist?
mhbmk2: yeah ff8 cid isn't evil, just niave
EricTheOrange: @goatprince wasn't Cid in FF8 the director of your academy? did he turn out to be evil? I haven't played the game in literal decades.
TXC2: noSmokeFire he's the PoV character
laundreydhull: U tell us, Mister Guinness; regarding his question vaguely
Earthenone: its the screams of the dying imperials
Carlioo: maybe it's a loading thing?
plummeting_sloth: "So anyone who doesn't know our secret bulkhead system will be unable to pass. So, here's how our secret bullhead system works. Also, who are you again?"
laundreydhull: Oh, the track is displaced?
mhbmk2: @EricTheOrange he makes questionable decisions with money, I don't think that makes him evil
: Oh no, Graham didn't stagger-save.
theymerLoviatar: Cid in FF8 gives you a lamp with Satan inside it and tells you to have fun on your field trip
goatprince: ff8 cid was so cowardly and inactive that he basically allowed a lot of the bad things in the game to happen
: stagger-saving is for cowards
HunterLionheart: @theymerLoviatar Field trip is slightly unfair- he is literally sending teenagers off to fight in a war
Spacecarl: we know the group of Ashe, Fran, and Penelo blend right in with the scientists
chrisrd19: @goatprince So he was a college administrator. Checks out.
Carlioo: is ff8 cid worse than ff12 cid?
evilspoons983: you're wearing the protagonist badge so they know when to tell you things
Mangledpixel: the bloob hulk heads
laundreydhull: Is cid the hermit/mentor in this party?
BigDaddyBland87: going from 2x to normal feels like slow motion
ScrapyardGhostTrain: FF8's Cid isn't evil, he's just passive to a fault.
Gekyouryuu: Oh, what time do we need to warn you to cut off and get ready for W+P?
TXC2: BigDaddyBland87 right?
Carlioo: the hermit is basch, cid is a docter in this game
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Watch + Play (Graham and Alex are prepared... are you? It's Garbage Day!) at Wed 01:00 PM PST (53m from now).
laundreydhull: I did watch Wiggins playthrough this yet remember the context skimmingly
EricTheOrange: Cid is basically a Mad scientist in this game. He's basicly this games Hojo.
Sethalidos: Is there Premium Trash today?
evilspoons983: part of the soundtrack (when played at low volume) sounds like the william tell overture and it keeps catching my attention
: baltheir is the only time battlemage you have
Mangledpixel: for controlling heads, in bulk
Andymonium: I do think this is the first -antagonist- Cid unequivocably, there have been a couple of Cids before this who worked for evil empires and of course one who ran a child soldier academy so, like, "evil" covers a range
plummeting_sloth: the red bulkheads are for loading and unloading only
EricTheOrange: that's wild that the sound is doing that in the halls but as soon as you go into a room it stops
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: yeah theres like flight of the vakyrlies, imperial march and william tell in here. this music is like concentrated deja vu
niccus: a claymote- claymore.
goatprince: it's great
: so what I'm getting is this music is medley of a bunch of classical songs
DanTheMediocre: mine or sword?
accountmadeforants: These large grey sci-fi-ish hallways somehow remind me of Jedi Academy.
gualdhar: Claymore? I hardly know her!
Raincoast_Bear: Sword or the anti-personel mine?
goatprince: great swords take off shields tho
Earthenone: it also dosent have random damage
A_Dub888: Claymore deez nuts
EricTheOrange: I never liked using the axes. felt to much like trusting the RNG.
evilspoons983: @I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo definitely flight of the Valkyries too yeah
Raincoast_Bear: Close the Blast Doors!
Earthenone: the monster closet!
theymerLoviatar: who do I contact to purchase heads in bulk?
TXC2: theymerLoviatar Genghis Khan ?
Snowcookies: boys (singular)
plummeting_sloth: welp, time to denude the Empire of about a regiment of people for better drops
mendokusai_jamesdean: This would be a nice grind area since the boys respawn endlessly
Earthenone: cid is off by one
plummeting_sloth: how high do you need to be to ponder the mysteries of the universe? About 70 my dude
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Floor 70: Pondering the Universe, Floor 71: Housewaress
Pal_Friendpatine: Choppy Game audio for anyone else?
mhbmk2: @Pal_Friendpatine yeah it's the game itself
plummeting_sloth: yeah, it's at thing, we don't know why
ThorSokar: Are YOU Being Served?
Gekyouryuu: Oh, you also watch "Are you being served?"?
LidofLoathing: thank you, Graham, I will now have that going through my head for the rest of the day
farmall_farmer: are you being served fan?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Floor 68: Loot Grinding, Floor 69: Nice.
Mazrae: Now.... Which flood has the food court
Pal_Friendpatine: K thanks all
Didero: I googled a bit, and supposedly switching away from the re-orchestrated soundtrack helps?
theymerLoviatar: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Floor 68: Loot Grinding. Floor 69: Grinding.
Mazrae: Which floor**
MrAyeAxe: it's jus that elevator bit from Police Squad! (In Color)
Sorator13: well you see, G, it's because the big open areas are more echoey
accountmadeforants: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou All of Nice on one floor? Wow!
Wolfstrike_NL: There's a Time-being?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: @accountmadeforants it’s the capital, everything’s fancy
Didero: Aw, too bad it didn't help, thanks for turning off the music
TXC2: Wolfstrike_NL yes, his name's steve
Sorator13: You can just edit in the music loop for the vod; it's fine
Mazrae: Remind you to do what??
Snowcookies: This is music as the imperials intended Graham!
Meecespieces: this department store better have swedish meatballs when we get back to the entrance.
: Find a video of the soundtrack and play that in the background?
Sorator13: @Meecespieces they keep the meatballs in the center-rear of the store, sadly
mendokusai_jamesdean: Could it be an ambient sound effect caused by the outside or the Imperials running on other floors?
Sorator13: none at the front
plummeting_sloth: once we kill enough men to trigger the best drops, thats when meatballs show up
Earthenone: our delicious chain!
Mangledpixel: and here's the rat room
Sorator13: omg lab rats???
DarkAbyssKeeper: All rats are confused rats.
Didero: Poor lab rats
thirsty_kitteh: they're lab rats!
BigDaddyBland87: some of these have...suprises
Mangledpixel: oh, lab rats, very good
Mazrae: This place better have the best food court on the planet
Snowcookies: where's Vaan the rat killer when you need him?
BigDaddyBland87: surprises...man my spelling bad
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Don’t kill the lab rats! Those guys are super expensive!
plummeting_sloth: well, thanks for punishing us for exploring game
accountmadeforants: I can't believe we've finally hit the tutorial
Sorator13: Vaan Ratsbane is here to save the d- oh, you don't need me? alright, nevermind...
Mazrae: You did say that G I was trying to make a joke sorry
thirsty_kitteh: 3 seconds of Ashe idle jiggle...
Sorator13: one benefit to the music being off: we can more clearly hear the tuptuptup
EricTheOrange: I'll try to remember for next stream
EricTheOrange: random mooks dont get faces
A_Dub888: so many eyes
BigDaddyBland87: Hecteyes suck
v_nome: There PCs may be stronger, but they don't have this hat.
EricTheOrange: ewww I do not remember the eyeball flans
goatprince: now YOU are the confused rat
TXC2: to many eyes is what
Sorator13: @EricTheOrange You know you've made it when you get promoted enough to be given a face
Mangledpixel: oh Heck
CodeIndigo: Fran dying was.... an interesting sound effect
abracadaver23: Just slap the goo creatures
Mazrae: Did thunder heal them?
Earthenone: it did

ReynardWrecca: Yay! 72 Months! 72 is such a good number.
: Thanks for subscribing, ReynardWrecca! (Today's storm count: 22)
CodeIndigo: mmmmmm... evil goo
TXC2: given these are basically jellos, have we tried putting pineapples in them?
EricTheOrange: Flans are already pretty gross but this game is like,"what if we cover them in eyeballs"
BigDaddyBland87: @TXC2 I think that's what their eyes were
CodeIndigo: @EricTheOrange mmmmm... eyeball goo
Andymonium: oh no i looked away and now we have hecteyes, this really is the backrooms
goatprince: what, you don't like slime? rude
kristian_fischer: Ahoy, Graham and all.
TXC2: hello kristian_fischer welcome
BigDaddyBland87: Congrats...it was a dead end
kristian_fischer: Are we dispensing supreme executive power by way of swords again?
mhbmk2: @kristian_fischer does that make Ashe a watery tart
Earthenone: this whole puzzle would be solved by having one person stay at a switch and hitting it evert 30 seconds right?
TXC2: kristian_fischer if by that you mean death, yes
Sorator13: can I get an elevator full of men?
kristian_fischer: I meant Monty Python reference, but sure.
DanTheMediocre: Do you think this game only has 26 enemies of any given type in an area or would their name loop back to A at some point?
CodeIndigo: he judged.... poorly
kristian_fischer: Just an judge.
noSmokeFire: his name was A Judge
Pharmacistjudge: and I immediately snap to attention
ScrapyardGhostTrain: "I was just having my lunch break..."
TXC2: Aaron Judge
Mazrae: Now where are the elevators that go side to side or forward and back
QuixoticScrivener: just because you don't know their name, doesn't mean that they don't have a family
Didero: @DanTheMediocre I think we managed that once, if I recall correctly it went to 'AA' first
Sorator13: yeah, it goes to double letters
CodeIndigo: Remind me, Zodiac Age doesn't do the thing the original did where you could max out your MP by rushing for the mist charges, right?
kristian_fischer: That judge just went in there to cry like everybody else.
CodeIndigo: Like in the original your MP doubled when you got a Quickening unlocked
EvilBadman: You get MP bumps for grabbing the Mists off the board but I don't think it maxes MP
Earthenone: each mist charge was an extra mana bar in origninal yeah
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:19:59.
plummeting_sloth: the room/night was dark and full of terrors
kristian_fischer: Welcome to America's new favorite game show, FLIP! THAT! SWITCH!
Sorator13: @plummeting_sloth the backroom was yellow and full of fluorescence
kristian_fischer: @Sorator13 And buzzing.
theymerLoviatar: @kristian_fischer Plot twist: it's a show where you refurbish messed up Switches and resell them
Mangledpixel: corridor with extra steps
DarkAbyssKeeper: Flip switch. Go through newly opened door. Flip switch.
Manae: Security like this makes sense in a zelda dungeon, but surely there are more efficient ways to restrict flow in your fortress
SharpyByNature subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 67 months!
: Whelp, I'm 2 hours late. Thanks for the stream and I'll see you in the vods!
: Thanks for subscribing, SharpyByNature! (Today's storm count: 23)
CodeIndigo: oh, speaking of backrooms, i loved the crapshot G. Was that a yellow filter on everything or did you really find an office that hellishly yellow?
Sorator13: @Manae now now, this isn't a fortress; it's a laboratory!
Mangledpixel: how dare!
BigDaddyBland87: awwww...no nice
plummeting_sloth: ah don't do us like that game
ThorSokar: wow, RUDE
CodeIndigo: they are not playing nice
kristian_fischer: Petty, game. Petty.
MrVirite: how rude
Earthenone: all buildings have to skip floors 13 and 69
accountmadeforants: What the hell game
noSmokeFire: not very nice of you, game
Earthenone: too many lawsuits
Andymonium: they know™
t3h_f1gm3nt: bad game 0/10
EvilBadman: You can't get to 69, after 68 you gotta turn around
plummeting_sloth: it probably skips floor 4 and 20 as well
Critterbot: That's not nice!
Sorator13: They wanted to include floor 69, but its contents would've have spiked the game's ESRB rating
Carlioo: one is bad luck and one is bad manners
plummeting_sloth: just in case
Orxolon: that was not nice
Carlioo: gray fox?!
kristian_fischer: Whatever happened to "hello"?
mhbmk2: *manly grunting*
: oh THIS man
BigDaddyBland87: his lackeys do NOT wear deodorant
: Customary Phil LaMarr appearance
mhbmk2: the rumbling is still there
plummeting_sloth: cool that the rest of the part just kinda sat by and watched that
thirsty_kitteh: Is this where we should save and break for the day?
Sorator13: yeah, I'm disturbed by that guy apparently being able to discern loyalty by scent
Earthenone: probobly want to prep for W&P now right?
Earthenone: since we are at a save thingie
DefNotSanta: Was the game always this fast?
Didero: What did you just clal me?!
thirsty_kitteh: defnotsanta: no, we're at 2x speed for a lot of this
Didero: @DefNotSanta The Zodiac Age remake has a 'speed up' setting
DefNotSanta: Ooooh I see
TXC2: ah Gil Toss, of the vermont tosses
Mangledpixel: don't look a gil toss in the mouth
plummeting_sloth: what... is this room for normally?
noSmokeFire: """consider your bones"""
Didero: This dude is sure wearing clothes
flagonmaster: hello papa
gualdhar: are Cid and Balthier literally the same voice actor on top of things?
CodeIndigo: @plummeting_sloth standing imperiously and being an ass, generrally
Didero: Is that the same voice actor?
mwlsn: for that sssshtrinket
Mangledpixel: the question marks in the subtitle font are wild
BigDaddyBland87: I wondered that too
northos: @Mangledpixel wow, can't unsee
DanTheMediocre: Thanks Balthier now I literally cannot help but cosider my bones until I stop thinking about it
kristian_fischer: This is our Pompous Standing Around Room.
Carlioo: I love these dumb names
CodeIndigo: A TRIAL FOR B'NAGRANA DALMANASNA
Athelgar: He's a great bad-guy
thirsty_kitteh: look, lust is natural (says thirsty_kitteh)
evilspoons983: @kristian_fischer standing around room only
laundreydhull: Yes, yes.... Struck me down & eyes will becometh stronger than you can laughably imaginate...
plummeting_sloth: and so he burned to death
Andymonium: he makes it work some how and i hate it a little bit (I don't hate it is the thing)
kristian_fischer: Manufactured is too common a word.
Carlioo: oh wait this is necrophage from ffv
accountmadeforants: He's got the Gendo Ikari deal - bad facial hair, enough menacing aura to make up for it.
TXC2: hmm, his swords are Phis
Seagulyus: manufacted is an ancient word, it became manufactured way down the line
Sorator13: hey wait, those don't look like rooks...
Masslost: Is that guy voiced by the same voice actor as John Stewart from the justice league cartoon?
CodeIndigo: Rude, he's cheating, pulling stuff from FFXIV
plummeting_sloth: so... where did our new friend go? He seemed pretty down on attacking this guy like a minute ago
Mazrae: Does Fran need to be stealing?
nyperold: Don't worry, they can only move in cardinal directions.
theymerLoviatar: oh this music is in FFXIV isn't it
Critterbot: Already swiped an X-potion from him.
thirsty_kitteh: do we want to mist?
CodeIndigo: @theymerLoviatar Yeah, I think a boss in the Ivalice raid series
Carlioo: @Masslost sure is! he's also the voice of ramza
plummeting_sloth: Thanks for that quip Baltier... you want to, like, fight or No? Oh okay, cool cool
Mazrae: Regen on Ashe??
DarkAbyssKeeper: Holy Mote-ly
plummeting_sloth: holy mote batman
Sorator13: well that's handy
: Balthier sitting in the back like "guys this is like my story fight vs my dad, put me in? ...guys?"
BigDaddyBland87: That's where hastega was..I never found it
northos: @BigDaddyBland87 it was just a mote, not the spell
Orxolon: no,we should end with a whole bunch of quickning to avoid the phase 2 or 3 of bosses
DarkAbyssKeeper: Does that Quickening Bring Me Back to Life?
shurtal: does it wake you up inside?
CodeIndigo: They're not the "i win" button they used to be
ThorSokar: well, can you do enough damage that you blow past the phase 2 change?
Didero: Every time Penelo talks I kinda want to rewatch Clone Wars, since her voice actor also voices Padme in that
plummeting_sloth: I love that during these the enemy is just frozen in a random walk cycle frame like a derp
SK__Ren: Flash Kick, who wears it better? Guile or Fran?
Andymonium: I always forget that Penelo has a "break the universe" Quickening...
evilspoons983: when do they hold the sword in the air and get hit by lightning
Andymonium: oh no gundam wing zero
Didero: Why did he not just do that right away?
Carlioo: cool laser
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! You got ten peanuts; try to knock all ten cars down. Good luck and go!
Seagulyus: technically a laser canon
Transmuted_Elf: i love that laugh
Snowcookies: mad scientist goes mad
plummeting_sloth: that... did not a lot for how cool it looked
niccus: the mad lad did it
Earthenone: yeah we showed that old man!
mhbmk2: he's a squishy academic
plummeting_sloth: kill stealer!
nyperold: A certain magitech railgun
ScrapyardGhostTrain: "Tokamak" ... It's a fusion laser.
Sorator13: take that, friend's dad!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I had the video turned off on this stream and turned it back on just for the word “railgun”
Andymonium: oh RIGHT, right right right...
Sorator13: Oh, that's not ideal
noSmokeFire: I don't know why Cid "Regular Guy" Scientist thought he could take on four people with swords
LordShadner: a gattling flamethrower?
accountmadeforants: Is this an enemy stand???
ActuallyTheMoon: something something jojo
mhbmk2: this is where the game jumps the shark for me lol
Spacecarl: Like, we do gotta take you out dude
plummeting_sloth: her name is my name too! Whenever we go out, the people always shout!
TXC2: yeah was that his stand or something?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: That guy’s a scientist? I call bullshit. That outfit is NOT lab-safe.
Sorator13: Go vegan? Not sure that's going to help our military prowess
Seagulyus: @TXC2 its explained later?
Didero: Sure, let's all do nothing while he escapes
noSmokeFire: Ashelia B'nargin Dalmasca! What would you do for a klondike bar?!
niccus: oh that's who he reminds me of, i don't know why but this cid has Saul Rubinek energy to me
theymerLoviatar: Ugh, it's fine to be Giruvegan but you can't make it your whole personality
Manae: Why are they just letting him leave?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Oh shit he has Looter Scooter
plummeting_sloth: your words mean nothing to me! Could you leave me a glossary or something?
Sorator13: @Manae well, his stand makes it difficult to stop him
urkleturtle: what a piece of cid
TXC2: niccus it's the eyebrows
Andymonium: god i love those pants
ScrapyardGhostTrain: @Manae Because they're in a cutscene. You have to respect the sanctity of cutscenes.
CodeIndigo: ALEX HI
ShatteredShamrock: love your pants
Critterbot: Reddas is awesome!
Sorator13: I can't handle his chops
Carlioo: red ass?
Didero: I feel like his facial hair situation would look a lot better without the very thin moustache
Magnifisquatch: If I've learned anything it's that people can make ANYTHING their whole personality.
QuixoticScrivener: Is that Jet from CB Beebop?
plummeting_sloth: You may think me remiss? Hi Remiss, I'm ashe!
doctorbear: Cid leaves to get milk and cigarettes, Balthier is like “he’s always like this”
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: !card Smuggler’s Copter
LRRbot: Smuggler's Copter  | Artifact — Vehicle [3/3] | Flying / Whenever Smuggler's Copter attacks or blocks, you may draw a card. If you do, discard a card. / Crew 1
TXC2: oh hey the narrator
Sorator13: @Carlioo someone had to succeed Nanaki from FF7
evilspoons983: yeah does he just have +2 chops by default
: Ondore's voice also makes me smile every time
Didero: A coup really brought the gang together
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: these seem like important events that should not be…narrated at us.
trainpants: okay that guy does voice green lantern I'm not crazy
Didero: decide or prevent the Doom?
ActuallyTheMoon: i love the ivalice port of doom
BigDaddyBland87: or you could just not choose a doom at all
ShatteredShamrock: we're picking between only doom potions
Carlioo: wonder is this is where they got the idea for the narrated parts of FFXIV
DanTheMediocre: How would you like your Doom today?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I choose Doom II
Pinwiz11: We have Doom at home.
Sorator13: @DanTheMediocre cake or death?
Squigel: have we met the character with the worst fashion choices yet?
ActuallyTheMoon: they got doom running on a magicite
Magnifisquatch: Hey G. I know you've likely got a CRAZY backlog for W+P but The You Testament has a 2D remake on steam...
nyperold: Will it knock you all down?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: !card Heart of Kiran
LRRbot: Heart of Kiran  | Legendary Artifact — Vehicle [4/4] | Flying, vigilance / Crew 3 / You may remove a loyalty counter from a planeswalker you control rather than pay Heart of Kiran's crew cost.
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Garland - Home One at home.
plummeting_sloth: we need much shorter names for our squads
Carlioo: wait why is the resistance ship named after the bad guy of ff1
Carlioo: are we the bad guys
mwlsn: why do you need all hands to make full ahead?
1fairy2boots: I am waiting for "It's a TRAP!"
: @Magnifisquatch email watchandplay at loadingreadyrun.com for suggestions, I believe
Spacecarl: whole weeks eh? unstoppable
Magnifisquatch: @Sorator13 thanks!
CodeIndigo: Oh are we about to see Best Cid?
Spacecarl: yeah thats a bold look, but he pulls it off
theymerLoviatar: Oh I love his pink and lime pants
Gekyouryuu: Is that Phil Lamar?
plummeting_sloth: these 4 hours we spend on Microsoft Simulator 2012 will give us an endge
Meecespieces: yup, that's Phil.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: “they send supplies but won’t raise a sword in aid, who would do this” United States: *sweats in proxy war*
ActuallyTheMoon: i remember this bit too. Did i gaslight myself into thinking i didn't finish this game? We must be near the end at this point
flagonmaster: will he dance in his mance
HorusFive: Ah, I've encountered the Mark-Quiss
TXC2: GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou and all of Europe
mhbmk2: who is this time being and why does it care about our armies
CodeIndigo: @ActuallyTheMoon Still a few couple dungeons to go
urkleturtle: @ActuallyTheMoon There's quite a bit of game left
ShatteredShamrock: Oh, this is definitely a man who enjoys his cycling
: how many shards are there?
Sorator13: those were some thighs, for sure
Earthenone: 3? dawn dusk and midlight
CodeIndigo: @TXC2 Dawn Dusk, and Midlight to the best of my knowledge
Sorator13: "He's going vegan. We need to secure the lentil crop!"
plummeting_sloth: this meeting should have been an email
TXC2: ah of course a triad, thanks chat
Orxolon: well that song sucks
Carlioo: oh I thought I recognized giruvegan from something in ffxiv
theymerLoviatar: Oh god I haven't actually played this game before and /THAT/ is what Fran sounds like
ShatteredShamrock: I love how Vaan and Penela are nowhere to be found. They really said "Adults only" on this cutscene
DarkAbyssKeeper: How do you find Giruvegan? Don't worry, they'll tell you.
Sorator13: @ShatteredShamrock cue Vaan & Penelo's single lines in the scene
ShatteredShamrock: oh of course they show up then
Andymonium: nooo don't gooo
Andymonium: you and your ridiculous pants just got here
Sorator13: "We're too far into the game to give you a fourth party member again; I gotta go do something else"
ActuallyTheMoon: everyone is so sassy in this game
evilspoons983: just trick 'em into eating chicken and the vegan police will take their powers away
plummeting_sloth: Ah Vaan... shut up Vaan
ScrapyardGhostTrain: That's also Welsh pronunciation, G.
noSmokeFire: pirates calling each other "pirate" is very funny. just imagine a whole crew of them going "care for some tea, pirate?" "thank you, pirate, don't mind if I do"
MrAyeAxe: Threatening to leave someone behind while using THEIR ship is a mood
DanTheMediocre: I hadnt noticed them yet but I like bettas' pink and neon green jorts
: It also looks dumb in the videogame
Earthenone: doctor? doctor?
LidofLoathing: he looks like he glued feathers to his face
Xenguin47: I mean, yeah..\
ThorSokar: takes the right person to pull it off
ShamelessMatt: If he shaved the moustache it would be fine
DarkAbyssKeeper: Everyone wants to get stoned.
: in reality that beard stopped happening in 1886
niccus: nabudis business
