CAKHost: Graham, regarding this week PiF schedule: "Time to Final this Fantasy a bit more.", maybe
CAKHost: (I just wanted to say "Final this Fantasy" because it is silly XD)
LoadingReadyRun: "Time to Final the HELL out of this Fantasy..."
CAKHost: Lol, better! XD
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Fin-hell Fantasy? No, doesn't really work.
CAKHost: Hi Graham! Hi everyone!
CAKHost: I assume Final Fantasy Hell will just have to be the last one. Like actually the last one this time.
NightValien28: oh neat more graham it forward
TXC2: Hello Everybody
NightValien28: hi hi TXC2 hope you are well buddy

Anubis169: 'ello chat
TXC2: hello Anubis169
Didero: Yay, made it in time. Good evening everybody!
TXC2: hello Didero welcome
Anubis169: good morn-after-even-ight
LadyLockwood92: Howdy folks
TXC2: hello LadyLockwood92 welcome
Anubis169: So before the stream starts, I didn't bring my shower gel... so had to use the hand gel soap instead
OmnipotentTrevor: cool, one I get to catch live
richard_ermen: I totally missed them starting an hour earlier due to time shenanigans!
: feeling especially silky today 'cause it was one of the weird super soft aloe ones, and my tshirt keeps shifting around on me
BrowneePoints: @Anubis169 don't go to the UK, they'll call you the Aloe Guv'nah
Anubis169: hate to disappoint BrowneePoints
Anubis169: <-- Lives there already, has done all life long
: all life long, so far
Anubis169: yeah what's the phrase?
: live forever or die trying?
: Hey Graham
TXC2: Here we go!

ShamelessMatt: Well Hi
NightValien28: what up G man
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Hello, Graham!
insane_42: morning Graham, good to see you.
Didero: Please stand by while we tune Graham's voice
CAKHost: You were sent to the Necrohol?
richard_ermen: "Stuck in the Necrohole" was really the worst B52-song.
Niahlah: Hey Graham... got a joke for you .. Friend wants to book a restaurant for a get together called "The Manhattan Project" and suddenly *I'm* the bad guy for asking if it was a fusion restaurant.... joke was 11/10 imo
CodeIndigo: "Necro" most likely
Anubis169: is it the ohol? alcohol?
CodeIndigo: Or that
NightValien28: I fear to know why they would censor necro
Leonhart321: Greetings programs
CAKHost: Necrohol sounds like undead alcohol.
v_nome: Mummy Juice, new from Necrohol
Anubis169: That's the brand-awareness done for the next week
richard_ermen: How goeth the moving?
DoodlestheGreat: Necrohol cocktails.
Critterbot: Hey G, did you know it's FFXII's 17th anniversary today?
nerdmor: Last time I caught one live, we had Noir Graham
ScrapyardGhostTrain: That's not ominous at all.
bwk789: V long physical paling too
Leonhart321: Japanese release if my Theatrhythm trivia is to be believed
plummeting_sloth: nice con based trap detection there Penelo
Critterbot: Probably the japanese one, Not sure.
BrowneePoints: march 16 2006 in Japan yea
Niahlah: Do you choose different "jobs" for each person? or do you have specific ones you pick??
LordManiMani: I missed the end of yesterdays stream. Did G finish Lighthouse or are we doin hunts today
Meecespieces: isn't this the place where Reks died? Those stairs looked kinda familiar
Didero: Steam sale just started, including 50% off this game
LordManiMani: @meecespieces no, that was Nalbina. Same nation though
Sunmare_Dragon37: Today is also National Panda Day
BrowneePoints: yea..it looks fine...and the lack of diversity thing bugs me
NojhLivic: I'm excited! First time I've been excited about a pure fantasy FF since... 9?
Anubis169: This game came out in the golden era of "Too much bloom everywhere" and "MMO style combat shoehorned into everything"
SocraticMethod: @Meecespieces IIRC no, where he died got turned into a prison
DoodlestheGreat: We all get a bit jaded as we get older.
LurkerSpine: I wish FF16 was coming to xbox, but oh well
: LRR is a Humble Partner! Go to https://lrr.cc/humble and LRR will get a cut of any purchase you make at Humble.
: LRR is a Humble Partner! Go to https://lrr.cc/humble and LRR will get a cut of any purchase you make at Humble.
northos: I'm super excited about 16 personally, given the involvement of all the CBU3 people. but I know it's not as much what you're personally looking for out of FF
OmnipotentTrevor: Graham, since you keep mentioning the Netflix Dark Crystal, would you play the video game tie in they made for that show?
plummeting_sloth: Nah, I'll get it on Braggart Bundle so I can rub buying it in people's faces
BrowneePoints: I was excited until Yoshi P put his foot in his mouth
Niahlah: Faith? George Michael would be proud
northos: lol yeah I know, it's great
omnilord: I literally have this game still sitting in my PS2 from the last time I got it out to play ~3 years ago 😁
Leonhart321: For Now
nerdmor: My only gripe with Humble is the lack of regional pricing. It makes several games WAY too expensive in BR
Electrodyne: Wait, Final Fantasy X-2 just had it's twentieth anniversary
Judders__: I feel like they got the name after saving ff14 and kinda had to stick with it

TXC2: CBU3 sounds like a name LRR makes up when naming something in a crapshot
Niahlah: I'll say it.. FF15 was on rails
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Not helped by CBU being the US military's designation for cluster bombs.
Leonhart321: Honestly, I think 15 has improved with age
SocraticMethod: @nerdmor Also, their default donation pricing has over 50% to publishers and less than 10% to charities
Crokoking: That FF12 came out in 2006 just shows how long the time betwen releases has gotten ^^
: So you're saying it also needs a x2 mode?
NojhLivic: Have you seen the "predigree" map that's been floating around? Showing how FF15 and FF16 kinda came from different devs all tracing roots back to FF6. But FF15 came through FF10, and FF16 comes through FF11?
LordManiMani: 16 looks like the generic WoL key art and cutscenes for FF14 made into a game
BigDaddyBland87: as much as the series has been leaning towards full action for years, it makes sense to me to just drop the facade
plummeting_sloth: clearly they need a 2x cutscene mode
ShamelessMatt: FFXV: Cutscenes With The Boys
LurkerSpine: @Crokoking tbf, FF11 and FF14 are/were ongoing games, and 13 was like 3 games
mendokusai_jamesdean: Favorite thing from 15 was the Tonneberrys. They fought like Jedi
MacSquizzy: I was excited to try FF15, then the barrage of proper nouns and cutscenes in the intro wore down a lot of that excitement, and the camp being composed of product-placed real world items killed the last of my desire
LordManiMani: It's not *all* the same people working on those. But its fun as a conversation piece
malsareus: tell the door what you think of the decor
Izandai: Isn't FF16 made by a completely different team than FF15 though? I get feeling hesitant after 15 was such a mess, but I feel like that doesn't really indicate anything about 16.
Didero: Putting your love in the door of Loathing seems a bit depressing
TXC2: "hey door, let any hot people in lately?"
LurkerSpine: I actually liked 15, but it took me a *while* to get into it, and lots of aborted attemps
NojhLivic: I just thought it was interesting and shows how disjointed the FF "Series" has been, with even concurrent development of mainline title numbers.
SocraticMethod: Tag yourself, I'm "Examine the Depression"
LordManiMani: FF15 suffered from 'if you want the whole story in order you're gonna need a FAQ and multimedia presentation'
Decaped: I loved the cup noodle in camp. 15 was a great hang out game.
BigDaddyBland87: yes and there's a whole side quest to get the kieys
nyperold: If you go through, everyone becomes stick figures?
TheTekkieman: Not exactly "superbosses", but it is quest-related.
mwlsn: hi Graham, hi chat
DrLigmaPhD: the doors are competing kink shops
LordShadner: I wouldn't say SUPER more just extra
TXC2: hello mwlsn welcome
plummeting_sloth: heh, I' was able to make a Kingdom of Loathing reference yes
Izandai: Mmm, I see.
Niahlah: the Door of Horror and Loathing are 2/3rds of next level bosses to fight SUPER boss
mendokusai_jamesdean: What are we hunting today? Rare game, hunts, espers, or the plot?
Izandai: Yeah, that's fair.
DrLigmaPhD: Like me
SocraticMethod: @mendokusai_jamesdean plot, mostly
: Staying afloat on Kingdom Hearts
BrowneePoints: Plus the whole "there's no black people in europe and this is our fantasy europe also black characters are too hard to make" comment like...REALLY rubbed me the wrong way on 16
Izandai: God I wish that were me.
DrLigmaPhD: Well... succeeded is a big word
malsareus: Look Square only has one realistic adversary and they're it
NojhLivic: Ahh see. See that's where I think the disconnect is. CBU3 is basically a different company the other creative business unit companies, and SquareEnix is kind of the publisher (but contains management control in may ways).
Niahlah: FF9 was Amazing
SocraticMethod: FF14 is financing all their failures
mwlsn: @BrowneePoints wait what
theymerLoviatar: hello chat, hello Graham
LordManiMani: There's design theory baked in to everything in one form or another, makes sense to worry that bad stuff will carry through genes
Slacker1977: FF 16 has had very little input from Nomira i think. and 15 was mostly a Nomura project until it needed to get done
: Square Enix: a company where a game selling 3 million units is a failure
omnilord: FF9 and FF12 are amazing.
Niahlah: FF 6 and 9 are my favourites
SocraticMethod: So they can afford flops as long as 14 keeps printing them money
TXC2: hello theymerLoviatar welcome
LurkerSpine: I still love 8, it's just the whole "leveling up makes the game harder, actually" was a bad idea
BrowneePoints: @mwlsn Someone asked Yoshi-P why all the characters in 16 are white/if there would be PoC and he gave a SHITTY response
BrowneePoints: like REALLY shitty
bwk789: Don’t forget for next time you see a boss, you disabled frans steal gambit
raulghoulia: wasn't xenogears slated to be a FF for a hot minute. And it got removed and then they had to slash the budget for the last half of the game
DoodlestheGreat: If I recall correctly, "Toilets," is the standard phrase around these parts.
Didero: What would LoadingReadyRun: The Video Game be?
evilspoons983: I tried to get into FF and bounced off it like a brick wall by starting with FF7 for Windows, in which I could not survive the first battle because none of the buttons worked
malsareus: I didn't budget for "pride as a gamer" this year
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: oh man id love that so much
Invitare: that was a quick response...
Critterbot: I would play the heck out of that.
Didero: That was a quick answer, thanks
mwlsn: Wasn't there a LRR adventure game sketch way back when?
Didero: Have you thought about that before?
BigDaddyBland87: why yes it is
ylegm: you may be correct
DrLigmaPhD: Beej's Ointment Blitz, a racing game
DoodlestheGreat: At least one pusszle would involve Ceiling Egg.
plummeting_sloth: Secret of Bartelbee Island
HavenDragon: what about the cd rom game?
Leonhart321: So a beloved cult classic that doesn't sell well, but is enjoyed by critics and gamers alike?
LadyLockwood92: Yeah, it's not great.
NojhLivic: Now I want to see a Skunkape/Telltale style LRR adventure game.
theymerLoviatar: The Moonbase Mysteries
Orlantia: i thought it was pretty clear that the LRR game would be either Mr. Pigglesworth or Tugger Nuts themed...perhaps a team up
mwlsn: Like an FMV game... I think I remember you and Wiggins in one scene
LordManiMani: Nomura suffers a curse that any game he tries to make runs the risk of transmogrifying into FF Versus 13, carcinization style
evilspoons983: EVERYBODY had King's Quest
Decaped: I hope FF16 is a game worth playing as a challenge.
Didero: The LucasArts adventure games were the triple-A games of their time
mwlsn: Also @BrowneePoints ugh
LurkerSpine: can't compare sales from 80s/90s to now
Izandai: @LordManiMani Isn't it more that he actively tries to turn any game he makes into Vs 13 unless someone else stops him?
LurkerSpine: gaming was so much more niche
plummeting_sloth: glad your hunt seems to be enjoying that aprticular corner so far. Very interesting corner to look at
SocraticMethod: @Didero Eh, some of them. Others were definitely lower
DrLigmaPhD: Look out for golin d (eeze)
LordManiMani: @izandai yeah, but comparing to crab convergence is funnier to me
Didero: @Didero Oh yeah, it tapered off towards the end of the 90s
malsareus: Ashe brought the power of sword
Carlioo: how's your necrohol going?
DarkAbyssKeeper: Quokka are hard to care for.
raulghoulia: aquaga has good mouth feel
DoodlestheGreat: QUAGGAS FOR ALL!
plummeting_sloth: because that would give you a water spell that actually did damage, and we can't have that
Izandai: @LordManiMani I mean, it can still be carcinization. It's just forced carcinization.
Shemerson: gravity is usually % based damage
LordManiMani: @malsareus she's rejecting the power of god, and middling on power of anime
Slacker1977: Gravity is generally percent damage
SocraticMethod: But AAA is a pure marketing term that has no basis in any real metric
TheTekkieman: Because it's Gravity. Percentage damage.
bwk789: Day of the simic slaw tentacle, escape from barnaby island
00superCalifraGilistic00: oh nice. deep dungeon.
Niahlah: is reddas dead?
LadyLockwood92: @Niahlah Yes, but he got better.
TehAmelie: how goes the struggle for gravity today?
mwlsn: in addition to her three other belts
Izandai: Actually it's more like pendulous hemipenes, huh?
BigDaddyBland87: HP aggro is stupid
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: i deeply need the simic slaw back for new friday night
DrLigmaPhD: @Izandai double
Dread_Pirate_Westley: Just give the enemies more health. This just feels bad.
Niahlah: it's a berzerk/rage mechanic
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Their cooldowns all get reduced to 0, yeah.
Zaghrog: Enemies, like characters, get bonuses at critically low hp
LordManiMani: @izandai the jiggle physics on an otherwise stonework monster disturb and confuse me
SocraticMethod: 30% more Def after they go below 50% HP
Izandai: @LordManiMani Yeah, that's very weird.
Didero: She did get re-enabled but then got disabled again
ylegm: she got disabled again
SocraticMethod: 0 cooldown when below 20% HP
Didero: She managed to cast one Curaja inbetween
ylegm: it does njo t like Penelo at all

raulghoulia: Brooklyn and Hudson next
BigDaddyBland87: No cooldown, all stats go up, some like to put "everything proof shields"
plummeting_sloth: I guess that's why it's a good idea to hold your mist attacks toward the end. Burn through their rage stage
Didero: So you'd have to set up your gambits to make people use their strongest most costly attacks when foes are Critical HP to counteract that, I guess
LordManiMani: @raulghoulia hoho iunderstoodthatreference.gif
zeathean: Are we in the “do everything we can before Reddas leaves the party” part of the game?
Didero: I agree that the Berserk thing is kind of frustrating though
Didero: Is Vaan the only one with Poach?
LordManiMani: Is he?
TehAmelie: calling those giant robots Goilath always seemed weird to me. like "you know what happens to that guy in his story right?"
plummeting_sloth: you're the worst pirate, Reddas
Travilogue: Pirates don't steal, they liberate.
Didero: Reddas has people to steal for him
: Pirate _king_. He delegates
BigDaddyBland87: less pickpocket, more raider
creasehearst: he could be bad at being a pirate
: Steel Gambit sounds way cooler than what you actually said
: So about that Float
plummeting_sloth: hang left I guess
Didero: Finally, some fresh air
DarkAbyssKeeper: Fusilade is carbonated pasta water.
Niahlah: the necrohole goes to the dead lands?? go figure
NojhLivic: The necro-hole took us to the dead lands? huh.
RaidenFirewing: also to the left?
baltimore_667083: woah this foggy swamp-I didn't know we were in Louisiana
plummeting_sloth: the necro something goes to the dead lands? you don't say
BigDaddyBland87: Those are all doors
SocraticMethod: Reminder: when you come back you'll start spawning oversouls on kills again
BigDaddyBland87: There are 3 in total
baltimore_667083: "wait, it's all doors?" "always has been"
CodeIndigo: isn't it ALL scary parts?
Niahlah: yeah.. each of those doors is BAD news
OmnipotentTrevor: Did you ever hunt that carrot thing?
BigDaddyBland87: I mean there is one door that's kinda funny
Niahlah: Amazing.. FOOBAR.. you are one of my fav enemies now
: yeah, at least spell FUBAR right
TXC2: FUBAR is an accurate description for that
raulghoulia: it will
richard_ermen: FOOBAR, enemy of all coders worldwide.
Didero: I'm in favour of hunting down carrots. Though I have no idea how difficult a fight that is
Didero: Foobar 2k is also a good music player
TehAmelie: clearly it stands for fooked oop beyond all recognition
bwk789: Those were rank 5, carrot is rank 7 so might want to hold off for now
Niahlah: Graham going vegan.. craving carrots now
plummeting_sloth: "Oh crap they came out of THAT door?"
Didero: Do we have other hunts to do?
BrowneePoints: So it's the Maginot Line?
RaidenFirewing: the most important reason
BrowneePoints: and the Hall is the Netherlands?
Niahlah: Sausage rolls are one of my favourite foods
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Or Belgium.
DoodlestheGreat: So these critters are just horses with badly-designed helmets...
jessicaengle: What is a sausage roll? It sounds delish
plummeting_sloth: This sea empty *chucks* JAGD
bwk789: Sausage in pastry, heaven
jessicaengle: Like a cinnamon roll but with sausage instead?

Kanadinbacon221: wow 22 months. thats like 2 more then 20 months.
: Thanks for subscribing, Kanadinbacon221! (Today's storm count: 6)
TXC2: jessicaengle it's a pork sausage in pastry
BrowneePoints: it's one of the only good things out of the UK
Didero: Food names are the hardest things to translate
OmnipotentTrevor: some sort of blanketed pig?
TehAmelie: remember the sausage roll game? that was immediately won by "Catch 22 sausage rolls"
jessieimproved: like a really big pig in a blanket
jessicaengle: Like a breakfast sausage?
bytecaster: Prefixed with "Steven" it is an acclaimed puzzle game.
DoodlestheGreat: Fish & chips.
jessicaengle: Or like a bratwurst or hot dog?
Didero: The province I live in is famous for 'worstenbroodje', which could translate to 'sausage roll' but it's different. Also tasty though
bwk789: My office is next to a greggs, it’s occasionally my breakfast choice
Invitare: it's a British sausage
LadyLockwood92: @OmnipotentTrevor Nah, that's a sausage wrapped in bacon.
Niahlah: Fish and Chips are world wide.. just done differently everywhere
BrowneePoints: It's a Banger in a Pastie
Didero: "Lemonade entity? Sweet!"
Invitare: the USA doesn't really have an equivilent to British sausages
Bruceski: Heyyyyy, it's a Vagrant Story reference!
jessicaengle: @BrowneePoints Ahh!
LadyLockwood92: A Entety?
SocraticMethod: Wipe in 3... 2... 1...
LordShadner: so Graham now that you have killed that bug I fell i should tell you it fully heals every time you hit it with magic
omnilord: I read that as lemonade, too
1fairy2boots: Once had vegan haggis in Glasgow. It was amazing.
LordShadner: so you lucked out
LithelyUnshod: Did you tweet? Is Twitter not showing me things again?
Didero: Wow, Ashe is getting agnry
BigDaddyBland87: get leveled
TXC2: I was gonna say if we needed to swap in the bois
DoodlestheGreat: @1fairy2boots Isn't haggis like... 90% oatmeal to start with?
Didero: @LithelyUnshod I don't think there's been a tweet, no
Meecespieces: and that was xp divided by 4 because of your guest. Those things are worth so much
LadyLockwood92: lads lads lads lads
LithelyUnshod: @LithelyUnshod Got it.
plummeting_sloth: glad someone in the party has holy for a bit
StewartRWyatt: Seeing the big bursts of magic reminded me of the other thing I didn't like about FFXV, Friendly Fire AOE magic
LadyLockwood92: @StewartRWyatt Sounds bad.
DarkAbyssKeeper: But it still has its shell?
Critterbot: Looks like Vaan.
SocraticMethod: I think Vaan is healing it
: Oh yea, congrats on the new Moony B, by the way
DoodlestheGreat: "Tonight I dine on turkle soop."
1fairy2boots: @DoodlestheGreat Haggis is usually intestines etc.
Didero: It's always Vaan, isn't it
Genie_M: You can sort the inventory
SocraticMethod: Ooh, the poach worked
MrVirite: might be worth going into the big item lists and (X) sorting them?
Didero: Enough room for tennis matches on AFK
DrLigmaPhD: This time it's actually on a moon
OmnipotentTrevor: Yeah, new moonbase sounds good, but on the other hand it seems like you put so much work into this one
DrLigmaPhD: but not earth's
: glad to see the support for the move is going strong
TXC2: BTW: you've not tweeted Graham
Niahlah: bad Graham..
ZladCommaThe: Speaking of the move how does that effect mail time?
Pteraspidomorphi: The question is how many Eket cubes the new studio C will hold
Invitare: RIP the Paul Narration Corridor
jessicaengle: Probably learned good lessons each time, how to do it better!
Pteraspidomorphi: Invitare: Good point! That corridor is important!
Carlioo: must be nice to get to work on it BEFORE you move in this time at least
DarkAbyssKeeper: Upgrading from egg crates to actual insulation?
jessicaengle: Pretty soon you'll be contractors to help other people establish their own moon bases
plummeting_sloth: make sure to mark the walls on the new place with your scent, dissuade any people trying to acquire it after you
Didero: Step 1: Learn to orbit underground
BrowneePoints: 1st step of Base Mooning
BrowneePoints: Whip out cheeks
BrowneePoints: 2nd step: present cheeks
jessicaengle: LRR: moon dweller SME's
ElektroTal: love me a glass of necrohol with a fine meal
raulghoulia: came here from watching the backrooms crapshoot and good lord something about that one makes me laugh
Pywodwagon: So speaking of the update, we’ve gotten pretty consistent news/updates on Friday Nights, but what about Commodore Hustle?
ScrapyardGhostTrain: "Alright, NASA, first thing the base needs is at least 3 studios."
: Which ethical billionaire will you contract to handle the rocket launches, Musk or Bezos?
DarkAbyssKeeper: Ow, my out-cheeks!
DoodlestheGreat: You'll get a call from NASA: "How is moonbase formed?"
TXC2: hello ElektroTal welcome
SocraticMethod: Nah, you killed him first
TehAmelie: i think the murder hallway has followed you in some capacity in every location ever since Desert Bus. . .8?
plummeting_sloth: punched through his gut and stole his money t the same time
mwlsn: You can start LRR franchises with a unified design language, really scale up the operation
SocraticMethod: When you poach you see special message
: they're awed by his power
CodeIndigo: Hey, don't miss out on the chance to do really messy AskMasters in the NewBase before you get it fully prepped
Niahlah: Graham, do you care if I give a spoiler about the Necro-hole doors?
jessicaengle: @mwlsn I thought you said "undefined" language..... like all the memes will finally evolve into a new language
DarkAbyssKeeper: "That man prevented their money from disappearing into the ether. But how?"
: Gotta paint all the maps!
jessicaengle: We're pretty close already
TheHaCoFo: just tuned in, are we leveling the b team ?
TXC2: TheHaCoFo a little bit yeah
t3h_f1gm3nt: *sigh* thanks twitch for the "timely" notification
t3h_f1gm3nt: i miss anything important in the first half hour?
TXC2: hello t3h_f1gm3nt welcome
SocraticMethod: Now that was a poach
Didero: Oh, now you poached, and the message explicitly said you poached
SocraticMethod: However, poaching forfeits any XP, LP and Gil
LordShadner: wait ally any: works?
DrLigmaPhD: Thicc fog you say?
SocraticMethod: @LordShadner Esuna/status effects are smart that they don't waste on invalid targets
plummeting_sloth: hate when my fog mutters at me. So rude
malsareus: maybe there's a tram?
SocraticMethod: Anyway, poaching is not optimal for levelling up B team
TXC2: the fog mutters "damn I am THICC today!"
ylegm: you just have to show it who's boss sloth
DueRecompense: just use the Pinewood Chops on a Taxi
LordShadner: @LordShadner that is going to save me so many gambits
Squigel: just north of the zone your in you can walk off the map
ylegm: it's a later path, iirc
LordShadner: that is a gap in the cliff
ZephyrousOne: I bet Chocobo adobo would be delicious
mwlsn: the sub ocean beckons
malsareus: cool, also soggy
plummeting_sloth: careful, we find the minor key part of the map
DueRecompense: this is another spot to chain 10k skele's
TXC2: if a Latin choir kicks, then we know we're screwed
Carlioo: can't poach skeletons, they're too slippery
ElektroTal: sure you can. that's how you get bone broth
plummeting_sloth: you wouldn't download a car... you wouldn't poach a skeleton
DarkAbyssKeeper: You Poached "Spare Rib"!
SocraticMethod: Yeah, undead have to be hard-boiled
bwk789: Or the Cynthia piano song
DoodlestheGreat: Of course not! Skeletons taste better parboiled.
: of course not, you flambé a skeleton
LadyLockwood92: Sure you *can* poach a skeleton, but should you?
: I guess the dev who named these slimes was running out of name ideas
DrLigmaPhD: God I need to make some good stew. Thanks Shivam
TehAmelie: we'll have soupbones for days
BigDaddyBland87: oh I see he found how to get to the secret area
plummeting_sloth: ooh, serum
DrLigmaPhD: And a very good job the localization team did
SocraticMethod: (フォーバー, Fōbā)
letfireraindown: Japan has US military basses and could be into the coder lingo
GhostValv: full metal jacket
DrLigmaPhD: I only know it as slang from WWII
MystechJ: Dates back to WW2
CodeIndigo: "foobar" is an old computing term, too, it's the third notional variable after "foo" and "bar"
TheMerricat: So... I'm just going to point out that Foobar is an ANCIENT term.
TotallyNotaBeholder: Fubar movie 2022, Fubar 2 2010
zeathean: there was a movie called FUBAR?
beldromercier: Hi (Just finished yesterday's stream, what we got?)
TotallyNotaBeholder: Sorry, that first one should be 2002, not 22
Didero: Poach also kills it, no?
TXC2: it feature's a lot in Saving Private Ryan
SocraticMethod: Googling フォーバー gives me pictures of fish
TheMerricat: "フォーバー Fōbā Fobar Foobar" are the various versions of the name depending on the translation/language
TehAmelie: Saving Private Ryan has this whole subplot with the writer trying to learn what fubar means
TehAmelie: which was 1998. might have helped popularize it
Orlantia: I was just about to post that @TheMerricat nice work!
Carlioo: final fantasy wiki also just spits out the military or computer definitions as possible name references
LadyLockwood92: What would really clinch it would be an enemy called Snafoo.
yo80 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 4 months!
: Thanks for subscribing, yo80! (Today's storm count: 7)
ylegm: @LadyLockwood92 I like it
TheMerricat: @SocraticMethod フォーバー is just the sounds foba. I would hazard to guess that foobar was imported into the Japanese language during post-WWII occupation by the American army....
BigDaddyBland87: there a lot of skelies here
Mangledpixel: cast Haste on your Haster so you can Haste while you Haste
Critterbot: Balthier: Aww...
LordManiMani: Skeleton Maaaaan
ylegm: Balthier comes back, Roblon in tow
TehAmelie: "Pebcac" would also work for a monster name
ylegm: is it pebkac or pebcac
BrowneePoints: So looking it up Graham
BrowneePoints: most places are saying it's a cheeky referencer to FUBAR military slang or foobar programming slang
Judders__: does healing undead still damage in this game or is it only holy?
LadyLockwood92: @ylegm Oh no. Balthier's /that/ kind of DPS>
TheMerricat: @ylegm Problem exists between chair and keyboard.
LordManiMani: @ylegm either works really
thegreatwyrdling: Hey G, hope you are having a good day.
plummeting_sloth: boy what a skeleton grind
Didero: Can you dispel Reflect?
SocraticMethod: @BrowneePoints Do they have actual sources? Because FF wiki is big on guessing
BrowneePoints: I double checked a couple places
MrVirite: are we there yet?
super_ashura: "Problem exists between (computer/keyboard) and chair" could go either way depending on who taught it to you. I prefer the keyboard.
BrowneePoints: the kanji don't spell a real world
Vonbane: robble robble?
LordShadner: do you have any opal rings? they go thou reflect.
DarkAbyssKeeper: Dispel Reflect, Show some Respect, down on one knee.
whatthebus: Hey folks, Rob Lon here to talk to you about Rob Lon's Lawn Care
BrowneePoints: plus the actual Enemy is like a gelatinous mass of battlefield remains
BrowneePoints: so FUBAR works
TheMerricat: @BrowneePoints I mean the wiki has the litteral characters used for the japanese name and those charcters are litterally just the sounds foba - which would be what foobar sounds like 'in japanese' as a loan word.
LordManiMani: @darkabysskeeper very enjoyable
LadyLockwood92: @whatthebus I'm Don Rob Lon. Leader of this crime family.
DarkAbyssKeeper: @whatthebus Rob Lon's Lawn Rub and Oblong Emporium.
A_Dub888: !findquote skeleton
LRRbot: Quote #7702: "My skeleton isn't made of Lego, it's made of dark magic." —Heather [2021-07-23]
Genie_M: I did just the same 😁
Mangledpixel: a nonzero amount of BONES
MrVirite: have you hear of our lord and saviour Bones McGee?
beldromercier: Where are you G?
LadyLockwood92: !findquote bones
LRRbot: Quote #7831: "You don't need bones, you've got my twerking butt." —James [2021-11-02]
MystechJ: Way too many skelys
DrLigmaPhD: The lesser known cousin of the poison swamp, skeleton bridge
plummeting_sloth: in the grim swampness of the future there is only skeletons
beldromercier: What is that roblon?
TXC2: what if Rob lon is the skeletons we fort along the way ?
beldromercier: I am confused
ylegm: that is a frequent problem with skeletons, too gd many
Mangledpixel: you are never more than 5 metres away from a skeleton
Anubis169: so chat
beldromercier: nice chain at least?
zeathean: An alphabets worth
Anubis169: Ever do that thing where you get into the car, accidentally touch your elbow to the horn and scare the shit out of yourself?
RocknGrohlNerd: big chain tho
BrowneePoints: Cuz everytime I think we're done, there's so many Skeletons. And everytime we kiss I swear I can fly
mwlsn: that's the great thing about skeletons for an antagonist, there's a practically unlimited supply
Didero: Don't forget to turn Steal back on for the boss
BigDaddyBland87: Oh I've full on looped before here
gamblingaregood: Whate a lorvely necrohole
Mangledpixel: what happens if it goes past Z? does it wrap around?
bytecaster: @Anubis169 That's just your skeleton trying to get your attention.
SocraticMethod: @BrowneePoints Sure, but they don't really fit the Flan naming scheme. Fan-wikis have a real problem differentiating facts and fanlore. I'd be more sure if there is a source saying foo/bar/foobar is actually used in Japan instead of other placeholders
ylegm: and 5 more skeletons
MystechJ: Do they just continuously spawn?
plummeting_sloth: you're now engaged? Congratulations!
evilspoons983: don't look, but there's a skeleton in the room with you right now
: I wonder what the thought process of Roblon was until they entered the fight
TehAmelie: would you say the map is "bad to the bone"?
DrLigmaPhD: @TehAmelie no
Didero: but y
RaidenFirewing: there's even more spawning
Mangledpixel: but Y?
Atifexe: Are the skeletons harmed by healing magic or healing items?
Niahlah: cuz.. Y not?
RocknGrohlNerd: and by tidy these skeletons, you mean mess up, right?
Angreed66: Double A skellies?
Didero: Do they just... keep coming?
TotallyNotaBeholder: @TehAmelie I certainly wouldn't call it humerus
TXC2: tell me Y
MrVirite: Yey Z
RaidenFirewing: so is the next one AA?
TheMerricat: Come back an hour later, Graham is still fighting here and we are on XXX
RocknGrohlNerd: Z´s dead ?
evilspoons983: next up AA or 1
jessicaengle: @Didero It's better than diggin a ditch!
plummeting_sloth: well, it just loops back to A
BrowneePoints: I have no clue. All I know is the kanji doesn't make an actual word, but sounds like a loan word, and the nearest one would be foobar, which is a known programming term, so occam's razor @SocraticMethod
DarkAbyssKeeper: A B and C are back!
Vonbane: aw it doesn't go to AA...
SocraticMethod: @BrowneePoints As a matter of fact, wikipedia says: "In Japanese, the words hoge (ほげ) and fuga (ふが) are commonly used, with other common words and variants being piyo (ぴよ), hogera (ほげら), and hogehoge (ほげほげ)."
jessicaengle: "fubar" doesn't spell a real word either
TXC2: it's an acronym
: looping back to only A means we cant recreate the 7:18 scream via skeleton names
ylegm: look em all
ylegm: good lord
BrowneePoints: yep. Started up as F'd Up Beyond All Reason in the military and then programmers just called it foobar
TehAmelie: ooh, we can have new hugeness classes: hugera and hugega
Niahlah: basically FUBAR is F'd up beyond All Recognition
BrowneePoints: err yea what Niah said
1fairy2boots: But everybody loves add fights....right?....right?
BrindleBoar: dem bones
Vonbane: looks like you have to stay put to keep the adds from getting out of hand
jessicaengle: Skelly bullet hell?
zeathean: I remember this being obnoxious
Mangledpixel: ooh, new Skeleton dropped!
Molladia: I'll bet it's good for farming XP
Izandai: Basch wake up new skeleton dropped
LadyLockwood92: I assume it became Foobar because people generally try to pronounce initialisms as words. 'Cause it's funnier.
BrowneePoints: and faster
plummeting_sloth: after killing more skeletons than people who have ever been alive here
BrowneePoints: Radar, Laser
BrowneePoints: bunch of them are said as acronyms instead of initialisms cuz it's easier
Niahlah: SNAFU = Situation Normal.. ALL F'd UP
1fairy2boots: Does Balthir have Silence?
MystechJ: What's Basch doing?
BrowneePoints: I think they've got a Bone to pick with you
SocraticMethod: Foo Bar = FUBAR might be an urban legend. There are multiple conflicting sources point to Fu Dogs, misquoted sacred chant phrase, and magic phrase "Fee Fie Foe Foo"
plummeting_sloth: oh no, it's gonna agro every skelly on the map again
Vonbane: would quickenings finish it off?
: Graham _WILL_ farm the skeletons, whether he likes it or not.
OmnipotentTrevor: So, you ever thought about playing the Dark Crystal Tactics game?
TXC2: wow were back up to K
Squigel: you don't have a holy lance or escalliber to crack out to get the skellys?
: Worst case it's a nice change of pace
SocraticMethod: It is
jessicaengle: sweep the legs
plummeting_sloth: nice heal you got off before the quickening
DarkAbyssKeeper: Literally anything else, however...
YTfriendofsquirrel: ff7 is god tier
BigDaddyBland87: When it starts blinking orange, then it's on HP Crit
: Well, pyroclasm sounds great with a board of skeletons
bwk789: Blitzball pyroclasm
theymerLoviatar: The distracted boyfriend meme with Graham on the right, the party as the guy, skeletons on the left
malsareus: our weapons do make holey holes though
Didero: simply punch through reality
: @theymerLoviatar Oh the Benben and Lele and whale statue meme
BrowneePoints: That Mirror shattering is not unlock how My body feels after late night Taco Bell
accountmadeforants: The lil finger waggle for that move is great
TheMerricat: So these quickenings are very cool looking, but.... the implications of what is going on during them seems... odd?
SocraticMethod: They are ~allegorical~
accountmadeforants: They're a bit like those very fancy supers in fighting games. The game just becomes a cutscene for a bit and then returns to normal.
BrindleBoar: quickenings take that "just go with it" logic of summons to its extreme
BrowneePoints: I mean, the implication of Knights of the Round is odd
SocraticMethod: allogory to being effing cool, that is
whatthebus: @theymerLoviatar same image but on the left is a sausage roll
theymerLoviatar: At least none of these seem as ridiculous as the Limit Break move Zell has in FF8 where he runs around the planet to punch the enemy in front of you
BrowneePoints: 13 ghost dudes come out of nowhere and kick the shit out of somewhere?
Izandai: So what's the thing you have to do to keep this going?
jessicaengle: something something modern major general
boristhewizard: I likw the allegory where Fran kicks me in the face 15 times
Leonhart321: Or Rinoa riding her dog into the enemies like a comet
hackingducks: does anything beat suplexing the train though?
SocraticMethod: @Izandai Hit "Mist Charge" or reflesh until it pops up
ForOhForError: FF8 animations are amazing, just yeet a cactuar into a different galaxy
LadyLockwood92: Is it Rinoa's Limit Break that has her shoot her dog at the enemy?
northos: RIP 40-chain
BrowneePoints: Luminesce? I love Call Me When Your Sober!
Genie_M: This always reminds me of Knights of the Round from FFVII
BigDaddyBland87: Now you just have to skip
theymerLoviatar: @Leonhart321 or Rinoa shooting her dog at enemies
TehAmelie: they definitely made the moves up based on having them look cool before anything else
RaidenFirewing: oh hey more bones
BigDaddyBland87: Now you have to escape
plummeting_sloth: nice! Now all we have to do is wade through all the skeletons to get back home
jessicaengle: Eye drops?
MystechJ: No announcement that the hunt is vanquished?
BrowneePoints: A Dark Crystal? Hey remember when Netflix made an amazing Dark Crystal show and it won a bunch of awards and then got cancelled after one season?
theymerLoviatar: FF8 was my first FF so I got incredibly salty when I found out it's the only game to have Quezacotl as a summon
BrowneePoints: *glares at Netflix*
Squigel: you have to talk to nu-mo somewhere
theymerLoviatar: eff Ramuh give me my bird
BrowneePoints: Don't you dare touch Ramuh
Didero: Time to build up that chain again!
BrowneePoints: yeet one of the horny ones like Shiva
TehAmelie: some skeletons remain de-re-animated
plummeting_sloth: god, we've been in normal time long enough that double time seems weird again
DarkAbyssKeeper: Not even 100 skeletons.
theymerLoviatar: @BrindleBoar I love tabernac as a swear, accidentally yelled it in the lobby of a Polish castle hard enough to scare some people
s1ck1y: ah the prophesied skeleton war
northos: Graham: "I don't think I need to grind the skeleton bridge today." Game: "lol"
theymerLoviatar: What a terrible night to find a trap
Niahlah: What? you don't like fights of Attrition??
BrowneePoints: So seeing the Swamps and Skeletons Graham, over/under on The Dead Marshes being a Legendary Land in the LotR Set?
TXC2: hello s1ck1y
ShamelessMatt: I ran up a 600 chain here last week while levelling my B team. That's about as many trips as I could stand
: Did that loot drop heal disease
: @TXC2 hiii!
LordZarano: The fish that comes up searching for フォーバー is a South Asian Tigerfish. "Also known as 'four-bar tiger', from its four stripes"
LordManiMani: Hmm. RIP
theymerLoviatar: good joke streamer
SocraticMethod: Disease Trap AKA Rusty Nail. Party needs to get their tetanus shots
BrowneePoints: Roblon lobbing Lon Bombs?
jessicaengle: or Rob Longs?
Mangledpixel: Robert London
: I keep picturing Rob Lowe in place of the Roblon
thirsty_kitteh: I'll patronise you how I want! (...on patreon?)
Squigel: however if you do want to patronise graham go to
LordManiMani: Hey. Hey. What are you, a clown in the ice?
1fairy2boots: Better Patreonise G.
theymerLoviatar: I would never dare patronize you
Orlantia: patronizing is strictly for Patreon
ButButTheJesus: Cleared out our necrohol
Izandai: Fun fact: Rust has nothing to do with tetanus. Tetanus is a bacterial infection that any kind of cut or scrape on any surface or object can potentially expose you to. The reason we associate it with rusty things is that the most common objects to accidentally cut yourself on in the outdoors are discarded metal junk that has rusted over since being discarded.
GapFiller: mmm oxidised iron

: also he has a emote for a chest tattoo
Diabore: hes got a face on his chest
: "Save The Queen" sounds too fancy to be useful
Carlioo: wait this is how you get save the queen?
northos: someone call Gunnhildr
evilspoons983: hand cream generally doesn't make for a good weapon no
Didero: Last time Basch tried to save royalty it didn't go too well though
IviaRelle: How fitting for him
Diabore: as protector of ashe, save the queen feels appropriate
theymerLoviatar: Save the Queen - immediate earworm of Roses of May
Gekyouryuu: Hey, all. What've I missed?
Mangledpixel: and also Jovy is here
Molladia: @theymerLoviatar I thought Canada had a king now?
thirsty_kitteh: I'm sure the subplot will be very jovial
Didero: @Gekyouryuu We got through Nabudis and completed a hunt
TXC2: hello Gekyouryuu we beat a hunt and A LOT of skeletons
TheMerricat: I feel like if you are the protector of royalty, if you've gotten to the point where it's "Save the Queen" you've already failed at your job...
LordZarano: "The Thai Ministry of Fisheries has successfully farmed foobar tiger (four-bar tigerfish) since 1982."
LordManiMani: @theymerloviatar shoutouts to Roses of May
Critterbot: An Einherjar is a warrior that has died and gone to Valhalla.
thirsty_kitteh: which asss? thmassa.
MrVirite: need to fight another hunt for the jovy plot!
Carlioo: I like that FFXIV has an entire special weapon storyline just for save the queen, and here it's just a quest reward for killing some robot
Izandai: And apparently that metal is made from such warriors.
noSmokeFire: @Critterbot ergo einherjarium is what they're made of
ylegm: and einherjarium is that compressed into a teeny tiny stone
Mangledpixel: Gekyouryuu and when TXC2 says a LOT of skeletons, they mean enough to wrap all the way through the alphabet
Diabore: why are they buying pebbles for 2 gil a piece?
noSmokeFire: my kingdom for a "Sell all trash" button
SocraticMethod: Quality Stone and Quality Lumber. The party can start a hardware store.
Didero: Apparently 'barding' is horse armor
northos: high arcana are important for making other bazaar stuff
BigDaddyBland87: yes it helps
TheMandrew: those are used for end game stuff
plummeting_sloth: uh thanks for the unique gift... uh, here you go *gives it back*
ElektroTal: the car loses value once you drive it off the lot, man
BigDaddyBland87: Ah Capitalism
: wait, why was that LRL bit not called puppet masters?
: Maybe we can get float now
noSmokeFire: merchant is just getting back at you for all the rotten flesh
TXC2: "no one, it's an unregulated market"
Niahlah: rubbin the astinum?
Gekyouryuu: Robert Bannister
LadyLockwood92: I wish. I keep getting Crystal Tower.
ShamelessMatt: You're getting gamestop rates on that trade
Mischievous_Catgeist: raba nasty
Genie_M: I love how they wave after you teleporting away
undecided44: How does the invis8ble hand of the market regulate prices with boxing glove on? .... Badly.
Molladia: Tomorrow is my first time back at a Beer Fest since Covid lockdowns, so after stream I'm rewatching the G-Vlogs to hype myself up. I'm so excited.
MrVirite: misread that as an employee's soul
northos: hydro = bone dragon
BigDaddyBland87: New goods from that one shop in town if you upped your clan level
LordManiMani: *crowd chanting* Ancient Man of Mystery! Ancient Man!
Leonhart321: Alas poor Eurik
plummeting_sloth: I like the idea that he just has this giant pile of attaboy gifts to give you in case you ever come across him again. Just the entire space behind Montblanc's desk it just piled with gift bags
BigDaddyBland87: Oh the airship hunt
Mangledpixel: so many pokemon
ElektroTal: we playing fft now?
: Hunt day today ?
Niahlah: Hey Graham, are you gonna go for the "Extra" espers??
Carlioo: as compared to the other malboro in the wild
Squigel: is it loathsome?
Niahlah: summons you can get fromsidequests
A_Dub888: Fafnir, Faf-far, wherever you Fafnar
Mangledpixel: Binged Woots
Didero: That hood is gonna earn itself back easily (I hope)
Diabore: i have cat ear hoods on my unused 3 characters
LordShadner: aren't the float boots just better?
LordManiMani: There's 13 Espers. Only half a dozen or so are gotten in story. They're neat cause most are references to original FFTactics or classic FF games. Like Mateus -> Emperor Mateus of FF2
SocraticMethod: Tchita Uplands' Oliphzak Rise, which is the area north from the save crystal area. The treasure for Float is in the lower right end behind a large rock, past a dome-shaped ruin.
silenceaux: That scream is a good description of decision paralysis
shurtal: The Cheetah Men Uplands?
Niahlah: STalk that Carrot!!
Didero: oh right, this game has story too
Niahlah: HYDRATE time
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!
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!
theymerLoviatar: rotate your necrohols, everybody
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Do pauses as Dave's Spokesman would, of course.
v_nome: You should ask that Dave Spokesman guy, he seems to have the pauses down
DoodlestheGreat: The pause that refreshes.
Didero: My sense of time was already wobbly, but now with this extra stream my brain can't decide if it's Wednesday or Friday...
SocraticMethod: @v_nome That's a common misconceptions, Spokesman is the monster
v_nome: @v_nome I need to watch that Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein movie. I know nothing about it but the glorious title
TehAmelie: maybe Dave's last name is Frankenstein, wouldn't that be odd
beowuuf: @Didero meet in the middle, it's wednesfry
Gekyouryuu: Question for mods: may I post a link to a picture of Final Fantasy jokes?
Evil_John_Cena: Dave's not here man
letfireraindown: If John Cena can't be seen then what's evil john cena's power
LadyLockwood92: Welcome back
TehAmelie: hello again
Didero: I've already forgotten where 'here' is
Evil_John_Cena: Hi Graham
TXC2: and we're back
noSmokeFire: "where do I get float?" -man who is definitely a cop
Evil_John_Cena: @letfireraindown You can see me
richard_ermen: Since when does Twitch allow "Stream Reactions"?
ScrapyardGhostTrain: @Evil_John_Cena But not hear you?
Judders__: Vaan the dagger wizard
Evil_John_Cena: Oh this game, I only know this game from that Mega64 video where the blonde guy almost got assaulted
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: yup, it s next to the follow button
Mangledpixel: it's been around for a while, I think
Didero: There's a 'React' button between the stream title and the Follow button
Pteraspidomorphi: I think it's a thing that goes to your dashboard
virre_: Its been around from about the start of the year, I have no idea what it acctualy deos though
SocraticMethod: You're welcome, figured map would work better than trying to verbally explain the waterfall puzzle
Faulpyr: There's a little "react" button under the stream. Been around a month or two?
richard_ermen: Fascinating Oo
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: its like a...time averaged emoji from the whole chat...?
LadyLockwood92: I don't know...but I can only React every 5 minutes.
TheMerricat: "We’re letting viewers react to moments throughout a stream with a limited set of Emotes (Hype, Funny, Love, Whaaat?, Oh no!). Viewers can react every 5 minutes, and we’ll deliver these reactions to the streamer anonymously in their Creator Dashboard after each stream to give them a snapshot of how viewers felt about key moments while they were live."
Evil_John_Cena: It told me exactly what I needed to know about this game.
Pteraspidomorphi: Just like Civic Doodle!
plummeting_sloth: Modest Mouse approves
thegreatwyrdling: Stream reactions are SO IN
thegreatwyrdling: SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IN
SocraticMethod: @TheMerricat Oh hey, metrics mine
virre_: You will see the What later because I pressed that
GhostValv: that's... odd
MrVirite: the reacts are so clunky
Orlantia: that sounds aweful
evilspoons983: the UI for it sucks
plummeting_sloth: so that's what those are
Critterbot: but why though
TXC2: so more useless metrics to baffle the streamer with?
s1ck1y: strictly worse clips LMAO
Mangledpixel: I assume its more for big streams that have unusably busy chats
SocraticMethod: Anyway, float is base 60s buff similar to Protect spell
thirsty_kitteh: what if...we just communicated our feelings?
Pteraspidomorphi: Graham's face: "Whaaat?"
evilspoons983: it's way too many button presses to react quickly
LadyLockwood92: Yet more engagement to worry about!
bytecaster: But I can already post my bad opinions to chat, right now?
Molladia: It completely greys out the stream with it's pop-up
Evil_John_Cena: Only FF games I ever played were 13, 15, and 10 in that order
Didero: Doing hunts with an extra character in the party seems smart
EvilBadman: Sounds like another graph they can add to the "Post-Stream summary email"
richard_ermen: "Hunting under alien skies" sounds like a phrase from an experimental rock album from the 670s
Serioavion: Feels like a test to see if they can add paid reactions eventually
Orlantia: and it's anonymous so no possible way that could be abused...
TehAmelie: i guess that's somewhat useful for giant streams that don't have a real way to communicate viwer-to-streamer
LadyLockwood92: y tho
Critterbot: Simple fun for simple minds.
noSmokeFire: twitch's equivalent of "I made a robot that screams!" "Why?"
plummeting_sloth: here's a new feature... k bye
Izandai: [Everyone felt entirely neutrally about that]
LordManiMani: Did the lookup. All the espers except Shemhazai are either references to Lucavi from the original Tactics, from Tactics Advance, or references to final bosses from the first 5 Finals Fantasy. Sometimes more than one of these
TheMerricat: "This feature is an evolution of the Viewer Feedback Survey experiment we ran earlier this year. The response from the community was overwhelmingly positive, and streamers asked us for ways to get more specific and constructive feedback from their viewers. To balance the desire for constructive feedback with our need to protect streamers from harassment and harm, we’ve limited the reactions in this feature to a set number of Emotes and the number of times viewers can react."
northos: it's not like the plains, you might need to go 2 areas away though?
noSmokeFire: this seems neither specific nor constructive
SocraticMethod: From wiki: The weather is either sunny or cloudy/rain. When the weather is cloudy/rain, the weather can change when zoning between the areas within the Uplands. The best chance of cloudy/rain weather is when entering the Uplands from the Phon Coast. During rain, Fire attacks deal half damage, and Lightning attacks' power is boosted.
: Exactly Graham.
Pteraspidomorphi: We could encode text in base 5
northos: that's only if it's already cloudy
: what's up lands
evilspoons983: ah 'gameplay'
DoodlestheGreat: Maybe it's a good thing Twitch's CEO retired, if this is the sort of thing he's coming up with.
richard_ermen: I often wonder if the people making these decisions are some kind of special weird because of how removed from useful it is.
Squigel: time to react Oh, No! every 5 minutes for the entire stream
SocraticMethod: "If the weather is not cloudy or raining, the player must leave the Uplands completely and return to the zone. The easiest way to do this is zone between the Phon Coast and the Tchita Uplands. If the weather is raining, the player can zone in and out of the area until the weather changes."
bytecaster: Is there a "Good game" emote I can spam every five minutes?
malsareus: even on twitch you're weird
LordManiMani: Ooo hopefully in a good way
noSmokeFire: adn should not have been counted?
Serioavion: You should definitely turn this shenanigans into a bit
ylegm: LRR? Outlier? BWUUHHH?
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: how so? in terms of subs per followers?
Evil_John_Cena: Does Checkpoint come out today or tomorrow?
v_nome: LoadingReadyGeorg is an outlier and should not be counted?
Didero: @Squigel how is that useful to anybody
TehAmelie: i figure if you have like, 50 000 viewers and 1000 of them report a given emote at a certain point that means. . .you were interesting
plummeting_sloth: just you and Streamers Georg, the only outliers on Twitch
Master_Gunner: Twitch still not grasp the concept of a channel being more than one specific person?
accountmadeforants: Y'know, I could see the React thing kinda working out if it were for VODs instead. As a way to react to things without chat (and without a thumbs up/thumbs down thing).
SocraticMethod: You want cloudy, not raining
noSmokeFire: Streamers Georg, who reacts OhNo 10000 each day, is an outlier adn should not have been counted
ZephyrousOne: Since LRR doesn't expect or intend to use the data, we can use the opportunity to ruin Jeffy B's data collection effort.
Invitare: It's not raining because I'm here. It never rains when I'm outside. It'll rain all day then stop when I need to go home
malsareus: how cloudy are we talking here?
northos: cloudy is fully overcast I think
SocraticMethod: Clear, it shows blue skies
northos: like on teh Coast
TXC2: cloudy with a chance of huntballs ?
: i would say more overcast
plummeting_sloth: we need to consult the ingame meterologist
accountmadeforants: But yeah, another streamer I follow mentioned that his Twitch rep said that his actually starting the stream on time made him a statistical outlier. So, y'know.
Izandai: Wow there was a couple seconds in the soudtrack that was EXTREMELY Star War.
LordManiMani: @invitare ah the ol Reverse Rain God
TehAmelie: butterfly meme: is this a weather?
TXC2: now this is Overcast I'd said
northos: I don't think it can become sunny from here, it can just swap cloudy/rainy
malsareus: ok this mechanic is a pain
plummeting_sloth: a FF hero's greatest enemy... the weather
firehawkzoa: I feel sorry for an future archivist trying to figure out twitch chat logs
LordShadner: it won't become sunny but there are levels of couldy
malsareus: we need an Ocarina and the song of storms
bytecaster: Twitch Archeology 101: Never read chat
Mischievous_Catgeist: you said that and then i started raining outside my window irl
LordShadner: you got it
SocraticMethod: You got it
bytecaster: This sounds very intuitive
northos: cool mechanic
EvilBadman: @firehawkzoa I feel sorry for any future archivist digging through all the shit we thought was important enough to retain but ultimately wasn't
ButButTheJesus: a lorg boi
ylegm: oh, this thing
LordManiMani: Ring woim
noSmokeFire: oh I love it
Invitare: who stuck its head in a wheel
plummeting_sloth: careful, it's full of link
plummeting_sloth: er, lind
Critterbot: Vaan is healing it.
SocraticMethod: Vaan heals
noSmokeFire: "I got a rock"
TheMerricat: This seems like one of those deals where they really wanted not everyone to find it so they made it as obtusely random as they could... and then everyone does it anyway despite it being a pain in the ass because... gotta catch them all.
1fairy2boots: Also, Silence?
bytecaster: You stole that dragons favorite pebble, rude!
Molladia: Summon one of the monsters?
Evil_John_Cena: slow and silent wins the fight
Foxmar320: Hello G hope you're well
theymerLoviatar: I like my monsters like I like my death: slow and silent
TXC2: hello Foxmar320
ShaneLeeAtk: Has anyone told it that the skull should be on the INSIDE?
Foxmar320: Hello txc2
ReynardWrecca: Good evening everyone. Just got out of the hospital, hope y'all are doing better than I!
TheMerricat: @ReynardWrecca Oh No! Hope you are ok!
ReynardWrecca: @TheMerricat Atrial fibrillation. Pretty scary.
Evil_John_Cena: grab his dick and twist it
TehAmelie: hooray for being out of hospital?
BigDaddyBland87: and it healed
ReynardWrecca: @TehAmelie Darn right.
theymerLoviatar: Only Silence? Enjoy
: hello ReynardWrecca glad to hear you're OK
SocraticMethod: Shh. Shh. Shhhhh. Only dreams now
Foxmar320: The what now
plummeting_sloth: how could we forget
EvilBadman: Mist on this nerd?
ButButTheJesus: i don't know what that is but it sounds The Worst
Mangledpixel: Foxmar320 you heard
Foxmar320: I have concerns
Leonhart321: RIP Balsac's Ringwurm
ShaneLeeAtk: The halcyon days of Balzac's Ringwurm.
Vonbane: haste maybe?
Didero: I think it also has Regen up?
EvilBadman: I'd drop a quickening on him, can't heal through that, can it?
Judders__: strange that ringworm is named such when it doesnt have anything to do with worms
Didero: Oh, saw that wrong then
theymerLoviatar: hey chat I'm gonna kiss this cat for you
TehAmelie: how do i keep confusing Balzac and Baudelaire? should be easy to remember one of them has a hilarious name
SocraticMethod: Fireball is a technick
TheMerricat: Is Balsac's Ringwurm Saruman's number two guy? Behind Gríma Wormtongue?
Didero: Can you Poach Hunts? Or does that only work on normal enemies?
SK__Ren: And now that its at 1% hp, we blast it with a quickening
noSmokeFire: @Didero poach like eggs?
SocraticMethod: @Didero Hunts should have Safety innate buff, which makes them immune to poach
Didero: Aw bo
ShaneLeeAtk: Magic Pixel! Clap! Clap! ClapClapClap
TehAmelie: why do they even have health bars on monsters if they just keep you guessing anyway
ZephyrousOne: Last 1% actually 30% of total HP
TheMerricat: @Didero "Poach is a technick in Final Fantasy XII that lets the player transform most low health normal enemies into loot and sometimes equipment pieces while forfeiting all other spoils. Poach items are unaffected by battle chain, but sometimes the player may get a rare poach. "
NightValien28: conflict resolved
theymerLoviatar: @ZephyrousOne the load bearing hit point
TehAmelie: ah, so we have progressed from Morph to Bribe to Poach?
ButButTheJesus: ohai beej
ElektroTal: time for glurp
Molladia: @ElektroTal wait really?
ScrapyardGhostTrain: That is a common reaction to experiencing Beej.
IviaRelle: Plot? In this PIF? Sounds fake.
Mangledpixel: pick up a delicious box of Phar-Os!
MrVirite: carrot carrot carrot!
Didero: I'm in favour of making a salad, sure
MrVirite: carrot then jovy ;D
malsareus: it's only a carrot, what could possibly go wrong?
plummeting_sloth: talking to a toddler "Look, can we just TRY carrot?"
bytecaster: Plot or carrot, the eternal question
Didero: Do we have any Rank 6 hunts to see how much harder each Rank gets?
TXC2: it's sweet!
Leonhart321: Look, we've had the stick for so long now, we deserve the carrot
TehAmelie: leading a toddler by dangling a carrot in front of them is really ineffective, did you know
: Ah ok. Then this Carrot fight should be easy, no problem
TehAmelie: carrot's like a D tier snack
LRRbot: In the box is: another box
noSmokeFire: from whomst it may concern
bytecaster: Mailtime ASMR
zeathean: Mail time?
1fairy2boots: It is just THE one ring.
SocraticMethod: I looked up the stats for carrot and, oh boy, we're in for a treat.
s1ck1y: mini mailtime
letfireraindown: Bunny ears?
Carlioo: watch out he's coming for you!
ButButTheJesus: STAB ™
Foxmar320: Oh cute
NojhLivic: Watch out, it's got a knife!
Wicker_Guide: that is adorable
DoodlestheGreat: Very nice.
: *STAB YOU*
malsareus: oh that's very dangerous
Wicker_Guide: I'm glad I arrived in time to watch you get carrotted
LordManiMani: What's that you've got there?
Leonhart321: And he STABS YOU with the knife
s1ck1y: the dude!!!
ButButTheJesus: more STAB ™
malsareus: the moonbase will never be safe again
IviaRelle: Yeah, now it's time to assert your dominance and show the Tonberry you can take out its peers.
NightValien28: the stabbist
Serioavion: It does 10,000 dmg!
1fairy2boots: Still love that clip of you when you explain it.
Foxmar320: That reminds me, G did you get the Tonberry summon in Crisis Core? I think I sent you a clip of it.
LordManiMani: Look. Tonberry can only hurt you if you've been bad
SocraticMethod: Have you seen the kill animation for Strangers in Paradise Tonberry? Jack just puts hand on it's head and it explodes
Leonhart321: A chokeybo if you will
yalc321: Oh hey
Foxmar320: Oh nice!
yalc321: My package arrive
IviaRelle: Oh dang!
Carlioo: now it can stab your phone!
ButButTheJesus: his phone now
NojhLivic: Or hold a knife!
Orlantia: tonberry is the best final fantasy monster
TehAmelie: feels a bit "man dooms self to receive tonberrys for every gift for the next 60 years" :3
EvilBadman: @yalc321 Nice work
Molladia: Wonder what comes first, the new base, or all the pending MailTime's
TXC2: good job yalc321
ButButTheJesus: quality Stabbers
yalc321: Glad you like them. Let me know if y'all ever want anything else laser cut
SocraticMethod: The Tonberry (トンベリ, Tonberi?), sometimes known as Dinglberry [...]
Foxmar320: Stabby stabby
smquinn22: I just posted a comment on your 3rd session, yes I'm that far back, but you have inspired me to start playing again. I dropped this game during that silly "I'm Captain Basch" sequence because it didn't make sense and I didn't have the patience at the time to figure it out.
plummeting_sloth: let's get 'em gang
Leonhart321: Seems like overkill to me
Wolfstrike_NL: Time to raid
SocraticMethod: I love Krjn's design
Orlantia: look at that pretty crown
EvilBadman: lol that skittering off
LadyLockwood92: Is that *not* how big they usually are?
Foxmar320: Thats gross, kill it
GapFiller: OH its huge
Firewhiskers: That's a Feed Me Seymour face if ever there was one
Wicker_Guide: oh wook at it's widdtle teeef
TXC2: that sounds bad
SocraticMethod: Oh hey, there we go
Vonbane: quickening now?
Wolfstrike_NL: Sounds like it will give more xp now
CodeIndigo: Oh, it's a Nier malboro, thanks, i hate it
Foxmar320: oh thats bad
Niahlah: damn.. look at Ashe's HP
raulghoulia: like you've never doubled your level out of desperation
LordManiMani: ! Cacarrot!
TehAmelie: just double your level, why not
Wicker_Guide: Bubble does that @Niahlah
A_Dub888: Because of course it did
plummeting_sloth: Ashe, what's wrong ? "I mean, basically everything going by my status bar"
SocraticMethod: No, Reddas does not have quickenings
ButButTheJesus: saaaaave meeeeee
smquinn22: Wait, Fran is your Summon? I'm confused.
Genie_M: That's Tifa's Dolphin kick
ofstrife: why is the sailor moon theme now stuck in my head?
smquinn22: Now Penelo?
DrLigmaPhD: Just got back. Why we fighting Poison Ivy's best friend?
EvilBadman: @smquinn22 It's limit breaks, but they can be linked
bytecaster: Wait? Is this how you eat a carrot? Have I been doing it wrong all these years?
Didero: @smquinn22 It's just that every party member gets to do their Quickening specials now, until Graham misses the button press to keep chaining them
plummeting_sloth: I like that Penelo has an attack that's basically a boop
malsareus: this really is DBZ levels of drama versus effect
Izandai: Can you just mash the face buttons to chain quickenings?
EvilBadman: Not really
LordManiMani: @malsareus like I said, they're fitting Cacarrot so its appropriate
: Thanks for explaining it again
plummeting_sloth: it's basically a rhythm game
Wicker_Guide: @Izandai there's a short delay during each refresh before you can reselect, and at later staginges the time to input gets very short
Izandai: Thanks for the explanation. Weird system.
ofstrife: knights of the round, the game
A_Dub888: and yes you can accidentally shuffle away mist charges
CharlieCurls subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 17 months!
: Thanks for subscribing, CharlieCurls! (Today's storm count: 10)
Niahlah: so.. Graham.. who's your A-team for FF12??
plummeting_sloth: the ladies
Wicker_Guide: huh, I am impressed
BigDaddyBland87: made that look easy
: Power Punch Girls
SocraticMethod: Here's fun abilities that Carrot had which you were lucky not to encounter: Time Requiem (Inflicts Stop), Hero's March (Buffs Protect + Shell + Haste + Bravery + Faith (100%))
MrVirite: @LoadingReadyRun I think you can get the Jovy cutscene now?
malsareus: we have divided our squad into locke rooms
BigDaddyBland87: Aerodrome in Nalbina
MWGNZ: this area looks great
TehAmelie: how do you become a professional petitioner?
plummeting_sloth: @TehAmelie well first you need to file a petition with the petitioning office
malsareus: there's a 5 semester course
I_Drink_To_Forget_Thermo: nice to see the moogles realize their supervisor wasnt bringing any value to the work
: Who's the tank, healer and DPS on each squad?
noSmokeFire: @TehAmelie petition: bring me 500 dollars. reward: 10 dollar tchotchke
DrLigmaPhD: So we got into leather
LordShadner: how did you NOT know?!
WiJohn: Oh no I've seen this doujin
plummeting_sloth: "Anyway, we're opening our marriage up. Interested? Also thanks for killing carrot or whatever"
Carlioo: poor jovy
Leonhart321: Her little pet.....You know what, not today
noSmokeFire: this is like those people who bought teacup pigs, who were just regular piglets
IviaRelle: Very "I don't know what I expected" from a woman who raised a malboro for fun
malsareus: okay Lady, what's with the putrid liquid?
TehAmelie: i'm thinking like if you found a puppy and adopted it and then when it grows up it turns out to be a hippo
DrLigmaPhD: Moral of the story: Don't get exotic pets to reignite your love life, do try some light bondage
Niahlah: instead of the Marlboro Man.. it's the Malboro Madame
Meecespieces: the putrid liquid is the malboro peed on her dress and she squeezed it out into a cup as a reward for Graham
LordZarano: @TehAmelie That's how you get house hippos
SocraticMethod: Small world, huh
: the putrid liquid is presumably the cough medicine I've been taking
evilspoons983: I like his happy clown face chest tattoo
Judders__: do you have the change every chest into knots, or was that the actual reward?
SocraticMethod: @evilspoons983 That's just what Seeq look like
SocraticMethod: @Judders__ Actual reward
evilspoons983: so... happy clown face chest markings then
Leonhart321: Wanna bet?
SK__Ren: Have we gone hunting for any of the optional Espers yet?
Niahlah: no optional espers yet
SocraticMethod: Thundergoat, maybe? Can't remember if it was optional
Bruceski: This is the point in the game where you get lost in sidequests everywhere and never actually beat it. I've played the game about ten times and beaten it once.
plummeting_sloth: was the one in that sand cave not optional?
Bruceski: (in a happy way)
Diabore: we already got goat face, the most important one
LordShadner: got one
Didero: I looked away for a sec, where are we now?
Diabore: @Didero story zone
ylegm: I remember this slog
SocraticMethod: Oh yeah, Adrammelech is optional Esper
DrLigmaPhD: "Cool dude but I'm with the census"
LordZarano: Yes... very... effulgent
Niahlah: OH.. that sounded like the Medallion quest
Didero: Oh right, in the tower where we'll have to find the Sun Crystal? Thanks!
TXC2: how does open water have a cataract?
Serioavion: This game felt like it got weird and long in the middle, then just sprinted to the ending
MrVirite: you know it's a good dungeon when there'a new UI element
TXC2: oh right the waterfall
Carlioo: makes me curious about what's outside of ivalice
DrLigmaPhD: Dont go chasing waterfalls
Genie_M: Reddas uses your gold needles
beldromercier: Where is G now?
theymerLoviatar: M-i-n-e-o, M-i-n-e-o
SocraticMethod: @beldromercier Pharos
BigDaddyBland87: you need those
TXC2: beldromercier Pharos, a plot area
beldromercier: Who!!! we will be here for some time
Didero: did ChatGPT write these or something?
DrLigmaPhD: Me, quoting the bible while drunk
Dread_Pirate_Westley: I think the Spokesman may have written that one.
LordZarano: effulgent: "From Latin effulgēns (“flashing, glittering”), present participle of effulgeō (“to shine or gleam forth, flash, glitter”), from ē- (variant of ex- (prefix meaning ‘out; away’)) + fulgeō (“to flash, gleam, glisten, glitter, shine”) (from Proto-Indo-European *bʰel- (“shiny; white”))."
noSmokeFire: so they didn't choose us, they chose the unchosen instead?
1fairy2boots: Get all them Blorbs.
DrLigmaPhD: That chimera's name was Brian?
Didero: This music sounds Star Trek-y, probably the trumpets
Diabore: can you remap?
Carlioo: maybe it's iambic pentameter, the best pentameter
hold_no_carter: Rhyme? That didn't even make sentences
mwlsn: Orbs of Tower's Magicks Plurals' Possessives
ZephyrousOne: maybe it rhymes in Japanese?
Driosenth: Hello Disappointed, We're Chat
BigDaddyBland87: after Giruvegan, the maker of this maze got lazy
evilspoons983: rhyming is for philistines
Dread_Pirate_Westley: Regen might overwrite it.
ShaneLeeAtk: It is the Super Mario Brothers Super Show?
Mangledpixel: 'elps to 'av 'em, I 'ear
hold_no_carter: Steal all the blorbos
noSmokeFire: would this be easier at 1x speed?
TehAmelie: locked by a device, with magic!
evilspoons983: wait, you're speeding up combat too?! how long would this game take to play originally??
: @evilspoons983 About twice as long
TXC2: evilspoons983 well we've been on 2 times speed, so twice as long ?
Diabore: they look slow motion at regular speed
SK__Ren: But what about... Ludicrous speed?
ShaneLeeAtk: But can we get to Plaid speed?
evilspoons983: @TXC2 lol fair enough, but the fact it felt normal in most combat was ridiculous
TXC2: evilspoons983 oh indeed
evilspoons983: I would have zero patience to actually play this
Didero: There were multiple of those stands, weren't there?
beldromercier: you have so many lvl to go throught
TehAmelie: does anyone need that many worms?
evilspoons983: (in its original form)
SocraticMethod: According to wiki you'll need lots
mendokusai_jamesdean: Most orbs are for late late game
mwlsn: nobody had anything to do
LathosTiran: it was *immersive*
TXC2: it was a younger, more innocent time
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Also, the PS2 was working as hard as it could for this game already.
Didero: Maybe they're set to 'Foe with Lowest HP'?
Diabore: in other news, you excited for FF16 in june G?
northos: gambits gonna gambit
BigDaddyBland87: Reddas was hungry
BrindleBoar: orbs are just a scam by Big Ponder to keep you thinking
A_Dub888: Oh heck, 2006 was 17 years ago
evilspoons983: I mean... Quake 3 is from 1999 lol
SocraticMethod: wait, nvm. I think you need 3 for now, much more for lategame
: 2006, literately half my lifetime ago
Diabore: @LoadingReadyRun in other news, you excited for FF16 in june G?
TehAmelie: i can remember the times when you read games advertising things like "200 hours playtime" and thought that was amazing
Chrysoprase: Did Paul have 2 ps2?
evilspoons983: although I'm not sure what Q3 was like on the PS2, I remember it worked ok on Dreamcast
: Worst case you can play it on W+P
richard_ermen: "Trust the Clive"
TXC2: cross that bridge and so forth
raulghoulia: 01 F is Big
ShaneLeeAtk: I will just go play my favorite FF with 6 in the title... Final Fantasy 3.
malsareus: W+P was a trip yesterday
noSmokeFire: I, for one, am looking forward to the unintentionally hilarious dialog resulting from FF16 making "dominant" the name for super special magic people
SocraticMethod: @LoadingReadyRun are you going to do the optional dungeon here?
josh___something: Has a AAA game been played on W+P before?
TehAmelie: Spud was very high budget. it was head and shoulders above Myst, you know
richard_ermen: I'd it assume to be....optional.
LordZarano: @josh___something Daikatana might count?
BigDaddyBland87: I didn't go there but from what I heard...yes plus 2 really hard hunts
SocraticMethod: Mustly because I don't think you need to collect any more orbs unless you want to do the dungeon
Mangledpixel: does Daikatana count as AAA?
NojhLivic: Is there a good definition for what constitutes a AAA game?
Travilogue: I mean, you played Chex Quest yesterday...
MarsIsDead: Yes, that Square game with the deaf protagonist
Serioavion: The Chex game isn't AAA?
evilspoons983: "AAA bad" is more "boring" than "entertaining"
malsareus: the Chex game is great
1fairy2boots: Isn't Prayer Warriors an AAA game? At the very least it was one of the best.
niccus: Chex game is A, as in, it's a game
bytecaster: Didn't you also play: "The quiet man"?
TXC2: AAA bad usually means buggy then bad
nyperold: What you think Final Fantasy was like 20 years ago: Final Fantasy V. What Final Fantasy was actually like 20 years ago: Final Fantasy XI.
Carlioo: @nyperold why would you do this
1fairy2boots: It was that good that it sparked the idea of W+P
ShaneLeeAtk: @nyperold No no no no...
LordShadner: wasn't ON W+P but does Watch Dogs count?
plummeting_sloth: *turns to skeleton*
malsareus: this is violence
TheTekkieman: It's either that or X-2.
TehAmelie: i am happy for you, not having any brain space devoted to remembering how terrible The Quiet Man was
niccus: pull out that quote again when FFXII is 20 years old
Leonhart321: @nyperold You shut up
Zael250: I played way too much FF XI
Diabore: @niccus so in 3 years
EvilBadman: @LordShadner At that point, I'd count Metal Gear Survive
MarsIsDead: Yeah, the Quiet Man @bytecaster
MarsIsDead: Just had to look it up
LordShadner: @EvilBadman true
nyperold: Yeah, and then I could use FF6 as the first one.
LordManiMani: This near where the First Flame's gotta be lit?
malsareus: time for A B testing
LordManiMani: Legit: I have no memory of this place
Carlioo: the boulder?
beldromercier: Durian, big Durian
TehAmelie: huh, this does look a bit like an orange Kiln of the First Plame
BigDaddyBland87: I theorized when I played this that this was unused area that shoved in here for boss fights
plummeting_sloth: yet one more turtle
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Hot take: FF5? Best 2D Final Fantasy.
MystechJ: Behold a dog
beldromercier: No it's Big Durian
: the Dread Beast!
TXC2: but it's not even a Panda
BigDaddyBland87: Wow my English failed me there
KeytarCat: But it's clearly just one fella!
LordShadner: dramatic turn around but it has no face
northos: I'm enjoying Graham's use of status effects on bosses
malsareus: @TXC2 maybe there's a panda driving the turtle
TehAmelie: it's a daemon! pandaemon even
plummeting_sloth: Turtles, noted hater of air
MarsIsDead: Wow, you are wrecking this guy
TXC2: malsareus we can only hope
BigDaddyBland87: Everthing-proof shield
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Ah, the anti-quickening tech.
BigDaddyBland87: now we wait
plummeting_sloth: well, tea time I guess
ZephyrousOne: Sorry, I was tabbed out. How much damage from eroge?
EvilBadman: I love that ol' newday tuesday could transmute itself into watch and play on accident. Lookin' at you Left Alive.
RocknGrohlNerd: It Is a big rock, just call Chris "Roger" Redfield to simply punch it to oblivion
LordManiMani: Try Rock Smash!
: Time to Steal then?
Carlioo: I asked this in another discord but has there been a single turtle fight in a FF game that was good/fun?
plummeting_sloth: what about status effects?
evilspoons983: I think the other thing that throws me off about this game is.... PS2 was still a thing in 2006. the same year HL2: Episode One came out
Didero: Are Technicks physical or magic?
LordShadner: dbl Time?
TXC2: evilspoons983 to be fair, the SLOOOOW roll out of the PS3 is to blame
ShaneLeeAtk: Where can I get immunity from both physical and magickal damage??
SocraticMethod: @Didero Physical, but can be elemental
CodeIndigo: @ShaneLeeAtk step one, kill the thing with physickal and magickal damage, and eat its brain
ShaneLeeAtk: @ShaneLeeAtk Tonight I dine on ENORMOUS turtle soup.
Judders__: big aeroga dmg
RocknGrohlNerd: @shaneleeatk ask your DM
CodeIndigo: the flaw is that step one is slightly difficult
Firewhiskers: Get stomped yourself, turtle
Carlioo: so is reddas just a permanent party member now?
plummeting_sloth: it died as it lived... a klutz
malsareus: Fran is STILL eating her ammo
TXC2: and it was all a dream
plummeting_sloth: @malsareus gotta put a bittering agent on those arrows
EvilBadman: That door's face though
BigDaddyBland87: wrong way
goatprince: hey graham did you finish the tower yet
BigDaddyBland87: my bad
CodeIndigo: it said the magick binding the way stone is loosed
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: LRRMtG (James, and/or Graham, and/or Adam play Magic: The Gathering Arena! Game: Magic: The Gathering) at Thu 02:00 PM PDT (1:29 from now).
goatprince: the juice is loose
Firewhiskers: Reddas stealing your levels
thegreatwyrdling: Sorry I just joined the stream can you start over from the beginning?
BigDaddyBland87: let's go!!
Robot_Bones: it'd be worrying if only these guys posed some sort of threat
SocraticMethod: You don't need more unless you go for optional dungeon. Then you need many
: 30 orbs will get you a and some
KeytarCat: Gas GAS GAAAS
LordManiMani: There isn't an esper in the optional dungeon is there?
goatprince: I hope you like stairs
goatprince: and teleport mazes
Firewhiskers: I did the optional dungeon once. It was a lot of nonsense and then a boss.
Didero: It's weird that they have both stairs AND teleporters
Mr_Horrible: Graham has played FFVII so many times, stairs hold no terror for him
KeytarCat: @Firewhiskers was the boss cool?
SocraticMethod: A goat
goatprince: 'A goat!'
plunko625: It's a new car!
LordManiMani: Does the game give hints internally about where to find the optional espers?
Mr_Horrible: Monitimer Hall, famed goat distributor
Robot_Bones: bunch of stage hands waiting centuries to open a door an pretend its automatic
Firewhiskers: @Firewhiskers The boss was cool, I guess, but not cool enough for the time and energy it took to get to them.
ElektroTal: i remember fighting the optional boss in ff12 the first time around, and leaving my playstation on with a roll of quarters on the button to have the Yiazamat fight just auto all night long.
ShaneLeeAtk: Anyone know a reliable necromancer with a line to Monty Hall?
StewartRWyatt: So I did actually learn that though it doesn't make sense initially, the Monte Hall problem does mathematically support ALWAYS switching doors.
TXC2: "give me stairs, long beautiful stairs, shinning, gleaming wonderful stairs"
SocraticMethod: @StewartRWyatt Monty Hall is not _intuitive_ but it always makes sense
plummeting_sloth: was that sonar?
: @StewartRWyatt I sure can't replicate the math, but I followed the article I read
1fairy2boots: Didn't Penelo also have Shades of Black?
CodeIndigo: heh heh heh, you said sword
Asimech: @TXC2 Just got here, in case this is the origin for that, but you made me go "I can show you the stairs. Shining, shimmering, splendid."
LadyLockwood92: @1fairy2boots Penelo doesn't, but Ashe does.
LurkerSpine: I was in work meetings for the past 2 hours. How goes the ff12?
Robot_Bones: Gambits? I'm in!
SocraticMethod: Arise chicken, arise!
TXC2: LurkerSpine it goes well
Mr_Horrible: I need to re-read about it, because the thing I've never got from the "it's a 1/3 chance then a 1/2 chance so the 2nd guess is better" was that staying with the *same* door is also a 50/50 shot. It's still a choice, it's just coincidentally the same as your initial choice
goatprince: I'd rather hold the rod
LordManiMani: *holds phone*
CodeIndigo: heh heh heh, you said faith
Robot_Bones: Better than the Todd of faith by a long shot
BigDaddyBland87: As opposed to the Rod of Disbelief
ElektroTal: why aren't you using balthier
KeytarCat: *holding joke* Uh, where do I put this now?
Mr_Horrible: Penelo -> Punchinelo
richard_ermen: She has become "Penelo, Destroyer of Worlds"
SocraticMethod: @ElektroTal Because it's Girls Night
SocraticMethod: Ladies Night*
ElektroTal: Balthier smolders at us. he demands play
richard_ermen: @Mr_Horrible So that's how the Punchinello Crime Family started... Oo

northos: @Mr_Horrible the 50/50 chance explanation isn't actually correct, in fact you have a 2/3 chance to get the right door if you switch for...complicated reasons
LadyLockwood92: lads lads lads
SK__Ren: I love how my suggestion for Balthier was so that he could use Crossbows... I don't think we've ever given him one
KeytarCat: Waddly lads
: @Mr_Horrible see, this is why I need to go read up about it again because I clearly am working off bad info
Asimech: @SocraticMethod Mixing this with Punchinelo: "Ladies Night, Punch Fight."
Didero: Kill green stone guys, open path, I guess
raulghoulia: had tp put Balthier in and now he's doomed
plummeting_sloth: I would love one of these inscritpions to just be in regular, plain English "Hey, go through this door and beat a big turtle and came back if you want to keep going"
Didero: Need to kill another green jar, I guess
BigDaddyBland87: you missed one
Angreed66: The root of the monty hall problem is switching is like choosing 2 doors instead of one
: can we clip things to Basch now?
plummeting_sloth: "From time immorium, from lands distant and foggy, these immortal words were uttered by the ancient sages 'Kill the green urns to make a bridge' "
Asimech: @plummeting_sloth I thought the ancient phrase was "you gotta urn your bridge".
Lazarus2511: @Asimech XD
CodeIndigo: short version: secret door
Deusis: they didn't have fewer words back then
malsareus: these stonecarvers need an editor
CommiePuddin: This has encouraged me to pick up Final Fantasy V again.
noSmokeFire: the sages were paid by the word, and bribed by Big Thesaurus
Mr_Horrible: I should do that as well, started a file on the pixel remaster a while back
plummeting_sloth: we dark souls now bois
Mr_Horrible: always really liked the job system
Asimech: @malsareus They were paid by the letter.
plummeting_sloth: ah, you were a fool to use it then
Carlioo: is poach just cooler mug?
Judders__: i can just imagine the builders being like, why did we have to build this again?
Driosenth: Imagine if you grew up in a small town with a bunch of old monuments with cryptic messages like "Press X to Jump" or "You can stack up to ten items per inventory space"
Didero: Vaan running like the Flash
LordManiMani: @commiepuddin G hasn't even found [either of the ff5 inspired optional encounters] yet! Redacted for your spoiler benefit
: Driosenth sounds like what I would do If I was on the town council
KeytarCat: @Driosenth I'd probably hate simulation theory more than I already do!
Didero: Why do you think you're missing something?
LurkerSpine: there's something across the gap
ghizmou: it s probably nothing
LordShadner: fake wall?
SK__Ren: Maybe you come from the other side?
Deusis: maybe the contractor just got it wrong
Diabore: seems like a reasonable assumption
BigDaddyBland87: it's an optional thing with Red light guys
Didero: Maybe they're hiding behind a fake wall somewhere?
Asimech: @Driosenth I imagine I couldn't move out quickly enough once someone has a kid with weird birth mark or whatever.
TheMerricat: Now we're retro gaming, who can forget the engaging play style of rubbing your nose against every wall to find the secrets
LadyLockwood92: It's probably because I've been playing a lot of Dark Souls 3, but I keep thinking G's gonna find an illusory wall.
plummeting_sloth: I mean, it is a lighthouse
Didero: @LadyLockwood92 We did just find a few of those
plummeting_sloth: got the footstep Sfx at 4x speed is so funny to me
LadyLockwood92: I see. I wasn't paying attention ^^;
TXC2: bless you
theymerLoviatar: In Dark Souls, Fool's Facade would be a hat
Leonhart321: Bless you
Deusis: facade me once, shame on you
plummeting_sloth: tup tup tup at hyper speed
LadyLockwood92: ADHD'll sneak up on you like that
Angreed66: You just saw through the illusion such that you never saw a wall
: The sonar pings are disconcerting. I keep looking for destroyers.
Asimech: @plummeting_sloth I don't see what's so funny about- "Pitpatpitpatpitpat *fight*" ...Nevermind.
LadyLockwood92: It's a little disconcerting that the green jars are called Brainpans.
malsareus: private room, fancy
ShaneLeeAtk: Grren Flame!
Didero: red is go, green is stop, got it
LadyLockwood92: The red bridges are permanent?
theymerLoviatar: FF8 Ragnarok color golems flashbacks
Meecespieces: So dave the spokesmen wrote these right?
Judders__: I feel like these where put into one of the poor translation dark souls mods
goatprince: 'the flames cancel each other out' learn to edit lore writers
plummeting_sloth: I think the guy that wrote that also wrote some assembly instructions for knock-off ikea furniture I bought
Mr_Horrible: but if a stone face leaves Chicago traveling east at 70mph and a red flame leaves Philly traveling west at 50 mph where and when will they meet?
BigDaddyBland87: TLDR: Watch the color of the flame on the lamps
goatprince: it's ominous when a dungeon has a floor counter. you know you're in for the long haul when that's on the screen
TXC2: Mr_Horrible they both get trapped in Cleveland
Lazarus2511: although we have been going up like 10 floors each time
goatprince: you're getting your steps in today
: it did also then jump by like 30 floors
Mr_Horrible: @TXC2 "The Ohio Gaol" as some call it
LadyLockwood92: Is there Maths in this version of the dungeon, or is that just for XIV?
KeytarCat: Each zone consists of several floors, I see
ShaneLeeAtk: This is the Gem of Aquarius! Gem of AQUARIUSSSSSSSSS
northos: mercifully these guys respawn pretty quick, you can generally just run around to find more
theymerLoviatar: @ShaneLeeAtk this is the Dungeon of the Gem of Aquarius
: Every time I'm tempted to play this game, Graham comes across a section like this and I'm cured of the desire
Asimech: @ShaneLeeAtk "That (Crystal) Gem is such an Aquarius."
Nydestroyer: Slowly becoming the youtube 2x crowd
theymerLoviatar: "Good Enough To Play At 1x Speed"
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Oh, they're respawning.
Asimech: I wonder if the pitter patter would become a humming sound if listened at double speed on top of the in-game speed up.
richard_ermen: Watching this series at 2x Youtube speed sounds weird.
ScrapyardGhostTrain: Just saw that one fade in.
LordManiMani: Speak slower!
plummeting_sloth: I demand EIGHT TIMES VIDEO
Robot_Bones: Is this what inspired that crapshot with dale?
Didero: It's ok, MP grows back
niccus: if you watch this at 2x speed on youtube, you have a 150% chance of winning at the sacrifice
TXC2: so much speed Keanu Reeves might show up!
LadyLockwood92: Is the restaurant downstairs fumigating again?
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:54:47.
goatprince: a couple of the side bits are take red charges I think
chaostreader: Can Basch use charge?
LadyLockwood92: It hasn't respawned yet I guess?
plummeting_sloth: 1.5x Youtube with 2 x FFXII so i can finally get me desired 3x game experience
BigDaddyBland87: You may have to come back
northos: that filled in the one farther back
goatprince: you might have to leave the screen first
Didero: jeez this is awful
BigDaddyBland87: Now kill only Red
Didero: Can you at least target them?
v_nome: Walken boots?
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! You and the horse are now bound/friends for life.
ZephyrousOne: Did you miss a set of stairs?
: or, damn annoying
MrVirite: is it a case of: no mistakes allowed?
northos: I don't think so
BigDaddyBland87: no it's fine
BigDaddyBland87: I came back later and did those
chaostreader: Is Basch able to use charge to regen mana?
ScrapyardGhostTrain: *the Zodiac Spear nonsense - The spear is still in the game, now substantially easier to get.
thegreatwyrdling: The zodiac spear?
EvilBadman: @thegreatwyrdling Originally the Zodiac Spear was tied to not opening specific chests in the game, and there was no warning of this.
LadyLockwood92: @thegreatwyrdling This game's super weapon, like the Ultima Weapon from 7.
thegreatwyrdling: I'm guessing it's an ultra cool weapon?
thegreatwyrdling: ahh kk
TXC2: thegreatwyrdling endgame weapon, had a puzzle to get it that required NOT opening certen boxes in the world
BigDaddyBland87: oh yea...the screen reset
ZephyrousOne: I think it respawned again
LordShadner: @EvilBadman or in-game way to tell which chests
Didero: If you go back, is the bridge part still there and did the red jar respawn?
ZephyrousOne: just before you zoned through. Might have to farm just that one red one
: this poart of the game is very anti-gamit
LadyLockwood92: !findquote bridge
LRRbot: Quote #1285: "I am also not a bridge. I choose to be a tunnel. Maybe a Chunnel." —Ian [2015-12-16]
Didero: Switching back to x2 instead of x4 might also help
: At least against me getting dizzy
goatprince: you're saying 'no' like you're talking to a naughty dog
TehAmelie: games gotta be trained to behave
: The stream has been live for 21:14:52.
goatprince: what do you have in your mouth?!
theymerLoviatar: "Vaan, what do you have in your mouth"
goatprince: drop it!
Asimech: @TehAmelie Baten Kaitos was a pain to house train, I tell you what.
plummeting_sloth: did we ever make progress on talking to all the birbs?
Texan_Reverend: We have an air fryer, but it's a combo unit: toaster oven/air fryer. We haven't used our regular oven since getting it.
: if only there were some direct way to control his behavior
ylegm: I always get hung up on the plural of cockatrice
LordManiMani: And lo!
plummeting_sloth: STrife? no he's not in this game dude
BigDaddyBland87: chill dud
Texan_Reverend: That was typed in the wrong window... Sorry.
Judders__: and lo was this dude the greatest of mans
SnyperWoIf: "Fools Facade" Glad that's conveniently labeled!
Asimech: @TehAmelie Waking up in the morning to hunt down a rotting banana card honks.
LadyLockwood92: @LordManiMani I really thought that said 'And lol'
Boiler_bot: I love all these pillars telling us how much we suck and the gods are totes awesome.
ylegm: @Texan_Reverend true words though
LordManiMani: @ladylockwood92 LOL UNTO YE
NojhLivic: Okay! So, there I was...
LRRbot: Today's storm count: 10 (new subscribers: 0, returning subscribers: 10, new patrons: 0), bits cheered: 0, new followers: 7
TXC2: quad speed fights are bizarre
plummeting_sloth: I like to think this is still a functional lighthouse so the lighthouse keeper has to come up here and get negged by these pillars every day
: thank you for fastfast stream!
northos: thank you for the stream!
NojhLivic: Thank you for the stream!
TXC2: thanks for streaming Graham

Gekyouryuu: No pif Monday?
LRRbot: In the box is: a really small, sad banana
Didero: Oh, Smash-Up, that should be fun
plummeting_sloth: nope, that;s why he did an extra one today
TemporallyAwry: !findquote banana
LRRbot: Quote #1537: "Why is there a one banana toll just to get over to where a monkey is asleep?" —Graham [2015-03-27]
