so hey guys dumbledore is gay lol

lol stupid new mature content rules on deviantART. I don't really see why everyone's so concerned about minors looking at "porn" when dA isn't even a porn site in the first place, so most of the "porn" there is just tasteful nudity. If it's NOT, then maybe the staff should be talking with the artists instead of blaming the minors for being curious, especially when dA is primarily populated by minors anyway, and especially when most minors are looking at these images through a purely artistic point of view. But what do I know.

WHY CAN'T PHOENIX WRIGHT 3 BE OUT YET AAAAAARRRRRRGGG longest three days ever i tell you. Then again I'm not even totally sure my copy will even get here on the 23rd, since I chose the cheapest shipping there was. WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO AVOID THE INTERNET A BIT though the PW comms tend to be pretty good about warning people about spoilers, but still, I got a few key parts in PW2 spoiled for me just because someone got a little careless while they were asking for music and another person used a spoilery icon and argh. Man I'm rambly today, what is this.

ANYWAY so I thought it might be good to do some more FFIV before Phoenix Wright gets here, since you probably aren't going to see me until I finish it :B SO LET'S GO

When we last left off, we ran a few errands (read: we stole stuff) in Mist and Silvera, met Edward at the Toroian Castle, found out the Earth Crystal had been taken by some Dark Elf fellow, went to Cave Magnes and fought that capslock-speaking sunnuva gun, went back to Toroia, met up with Kain, and he led us into a MYSTERIOUS TOWER WHAT IS THIS PLACE OH GOD OH GOD LET'S FIND OUT

previous episodes EVERY WORD YOU SAY TO ME IS STUPID





Tower of Zot, which I think may have played earlier at some point and I just forgot to plug it. Eh well. IT'S PLUGGED NOW








No, it doesn't actually matter how quickly you get there.



ICE LIZ



Here we go, new armor for Cecil! Too bad no one can have his old paladin armor.






Ewwwww those puppets are creepy.
Oh yeah, a little trick you can do with these guys is to just kill the Puppets, wait for the Marion to summon new ones, and then just kill them again. You can get some extra EXP this way :D I didn't do a lot of training while I was here, though. durrrrr. AT THIS RATE I'M GONNA TAKE ON THE FINAL BOSS AT LEVEL 30



What kind of insane architect designed this place anyway



Ahahahahahahahahaaaaaa treasure chest full of monsters. I'D HATE TO BE THE GUY WHO HAS TO STUFF THEM IN THERE



ESPECIALLY IF IT'S A FLAMING DOG MONSTER
That reminds me of when mom and I were walking the dog yesterday and these kids kept screaming YOUR DOG IS ON FIRE TELL HIM TO STOP DROP AND ROLL at us as we walked by. I dunno man :V




oww



AND CECIL JUST UP AND DIES. Big brave paladin indeed >(





Oh yeah, you get the Fire Sword for defeating the FlameDog :D



saying "dead" or "fainted" is just TOO GRITTY



hahaha "EpeeGirl"




I put on my robe and wizard hat




EVEN CID GETS TO JOIN IN THE EQUIPMENT-GETTING FUN and Yang got Poison Claws or something but I forgot to take a shot :B



It's like Christmas!





AAAAAAAA







Heh, Magus. Just makes me think of Chrono Trigger 8B




The tall one is Sandy, the fat one is Cindy, and the short one is Mindy. And there ya have it.



So, what was that Delta Attack thing they were talking about? Well, here's what it looks like...



Sandy will start by casting Wall (Reflect) on Cindy, so you can't cast any spells on her. At this point, Cindy will revive any fallen sisters with Remedy. Mindy will attack. Sometimes they'll do other actions, but these are the main ones. And then...






...they'll do their Delta Attack, which is basically just casting a semi-powerful spell on a party member. I THINK they might be able to target more than one member, but I can't remember.




Showin' you guys Remedy :V
Anyway, honestly? This battle isn't exactly hard, just really frustrating with Cindy's constant reviving. What I did was take out Mindy, leaving the sisters unable to do their Delta Attack and also leaving Cindy unguarded from physical attacks. I (eventually) took out Cindy. Then I took out Sandy. Some people like to go for Cindy first, but it just seems to take too long to bring down her HP with Mindy guarding her. Whatever works for you, I guess :O



Oh yeah, and once Sandy is all alone then she'll use Charm on your teammates. TELLAAAAHH! >(







Haha. Might wanna come up with a backup plan, guys! :O









SHOWDOWN








Cecil: ROSA, I SAID I WANTED ROSA
Golbez: I CAN'T HEEEEAAAR YOOOOOOUUUUU LALALALALALA








HAHAHAHA THE SIZE DIFFERENCE









why is he just standing there anyway



















See, now this doesn't make any sense. Let me break it down.
Tellah has 90 MP. He casts Virus (20 MP), Fire3 (30 MP), Lit3 (30 MP), Ice3 (30 MP), and Meteo (99 MP). IF MY CALCULATIONS ARE CORRECT that should add up to 209 MP. Maybe he's just so overcome with ANGST that the rules of the game don't apply or something, I don't know. Just a pet peeve of mine >(



NO WAY
NO WAY
NO WAY









i just start laughing every time i see that line





UHHHHHHHHH
















lol wat. Talk about awkward foreshadowing.
















Poor Tellah :< This scene actually makes me kinda sad.




blinka blinka








This is pretty much the game's way of going TALK TO KAIN, STUPID














And by "above" I mean "through this door right here"




SEE THAT BALL ABOVE ROSA'S HEAD? That was originally going to be an axe, but axes are TOO HARDCORE so it got replaced by a ball. I dunno, in some ways the thought of getting crushed to death squicks me more than getting chopped in half. Seems like it'd be messier, at least.










They also took out a frame that showed Cecil and Rosa actually kissing, so this is apparently just a hug. Looks like kissing to me :V Then again, it's kinda hard to tell with sprites sometimes.
Also, look at Kain. D:.




























Poor, poor Kain. I really do feel sorry for the guy. This is only intensified by the end of the game. *suspense!!1*











THE OLD MAN WITH THE METEO, HIDING IN CAVES AND BABBLING INCOHERENTLY ABOUT OCTOPUS MONSTERS
MAY HE REST IN PEACE






Woooooooooooo
So, Valvais has two forms. This is her normal form, which is when she takes the most damage.



And this is her whirlwind form, which is harder to hit and takes less damage. To bring her out of this form, just have Kain jump on her.




This pops up every time you try to attack while she's in this form, by the way. ANNOYING.



Really, all you have to do is have Cecil, Cid, and Yang attack, Kain jump, and Rosa heal/buff/use Aim. She'll faint before long.








Hey, a skill name that didn't get changed! Blink just makes your party members really hard to hit, basically :B This is VITAL for certain battles later on.








rumblerumblerumble





I love you, Cid.






Exit is Teleport. It just teleports you out of a dungeon and onto the world map. Can be pretty useful, actually.




...yet this time it teleports them to Cecil's room for some reason






DUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH





Cid decides to take a seat, just to be safe







GASP








COUGH UNDERWORLD COUGH



Kain just ignores that question







I read that as "I don't wanna know" for a second. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN INTERESTING







W-wow. That's really handy.












And we're free to wander again! And everyones' dialogue has changed! WUTS THE FOR-WUN-WUN



Some guard you are




They were Imps.



Haha, I think this is the same guy in the first episode who said "Treasure your life." THIS MAKES THIS LINE HILARIOUS




Will do!



wait what





If you press the A button next to the twins then this will pop up. However, nothing you use will change them back. There were rumors that there was a "secret quest" you could go on to change them back, but there isn't. There's nothing you can do except waste remedies trying to destone them.





Hey, that guy isn't guarding Baron's treasure anymore! LET'S GO!









Pff, Baron's treasure sucks. TOROIA'S GOT YOU BEAT, GUYS
















Hahaha, mini*Cecil. You can talk to that guy again and he'll change you back, by the way.




HOW CAN I EVER FACE MY FRIENDS AGAIN OH MY GOD THEY'RE GONNA THINK I'M A TOTAL DWEEB






WHY DO YOU PEOPLE KEEP SAYING THAT







And there's our airship! I was originally gonna end here, but then I realized I hadn't checked with the people in town yet. YOU HAVE YET TO ESCAPE THE POINTLESS CHATTERING HA HA HA ow



Oh, [livejournal.com profile] waywardoctagon! I didn't have a save from before you get the TwinHarp, but I tried selling a different greyed out item and nothing came up :O I thought for sure you'd get a message of some sort. Huh.



This was in that room from before you go into the underground waterway and stuff. There was a secret passage :O Can't believe I didn't notice that before.



get outta my way GET OUTTA MY WAY I AM A DOCTOR


















I'LL GIVE HIM A SUCKER PUNCH JUST FOR YOU, CHAMP









That was some pretty intense conflict there





IS ANYONE EVER TRULY RIGHT IN THIS WORLD




If you noticed that I'm kind of jumping around here, it's because the screenshots got a little out of order. EH WELL, WHATEVER, YOU GUYS CAN HANDLE IT











BLINKBLINK








YOU GOT IT, KING

AND WITH THAT, I AM DONE WITH THIS EPISODE

hurrrrrrr man i got these books i wanna read SEEYA

Edit: y helo there, hilarious SSBM screenshots!

lol stupid new mature content rules on deviantART.

Stupid, indeed. >( Sure, some are out to get a boner (why'd they'd be doing on devART instead of some porn site i have no idea), but, yeah. It's silly. It's the "minor"'s fault if they're not looking at nude art for...ya know...it's art, not the website or the artist. It just really bugs me. But a lot about DevART bugs me, so.

I honestly can't believe Cecil thought Golbez *snrk* would just give Rosa back to him. I mean. He's a bad guy. You'd think he'd, uh, do a bit a double-crossin' to get his way.

Tellah! >: This scene makes me sad, also. Oh. And. Kain. <3

Really? Replaced by a ball? I mean, that would be a REALLY messy death and ow. An axe would be swifter and just...a tad cleaner I guess. Where's the sense...?

xD For a second there I thought she got crushed when the ball fell 'cause I didn't look at Cecil looking at her sprite. Hahaha. I was all: "Why's he just..."Rosa..."? Wasn't he all: GL;LAJKB;DASD ROSA MUST GET SCREW WORLD blahsadfa;f! a minute ago?"

Looks like kissing to me, too. Oh and. Kain. DDD:

Oh that King!

EXACTLY and even if they are looking at that stuff to wank off, then whatever. I don't see what's so appalling about someone under 18 being sexually attracted to something. The whole ordeal is dumb and makes me glad I left a long time ago |<

YEAH haha not to mention that would've made for a very anti-climatic meeting. "Here's the crystal!" "Gee, thanks! Here's the girl!" "Alright! Great! ...so, uh... fight to the death?" "Oh, I don't know, I have a headache."

I know, guh D: GETTING CRUSHED JUST SOUNDS SO MUCH MORE TERRIBLE AND AAAAAGH it's like they unintentionally breached their own censorship rules

*cracks up*

Poor Kain :< He just wants to be loooooooved

Wait new rules what :O was there a news post? Because I didn't see it! Are they making it default to "hide mature content" if they can tell by your birthday that you're underage now? Laaaaaaaame. It's not like they can actually stop anyone from making a new account and lying about their age, anyway.

...not to mention that stuff besides nudity fits under their "mature content" rules.

Haha, yeah, random pillars right between walls, tiny rooms that aren't even closed off.... :B

Treasure chest full of MONSTERS? Hahahahaahahh SURPRISE

That's totally not an épée she has, either. I mean it pretty much looks like just a sword.

They're actually the same size, it's just that Golbez is in the head. He's driving the suit of armor through levers and stuff. 8D

I guess he has hidden reserves. :O

And the ball just drops after you untie her? ...Why?

DUN DUN DUNNNNNN

Hhahahahahahahha remote control. AWESOME.

Huh. :O Well, I guess that answers that question!

The dancing thing is even better when you realize that Rosa is right there with him. :D

I WONDER IF ALL THIS TALK OF KINGS IS FORESHADOWING ANYTHING

Yeah, I don't think they made a news post or anything for some reason, so the new rule just sort of... popped up at me while I was browsing.
Realitysquared DID make a journal entry (http://realitysquared.deviantart.com/journal/14938931/) about it, though, and Lolly talked about it a bit. (http://lolly.deviantart.com/journal/) They're at least going to implement a rating system so minors can still see SOME mature content, but I dunno :< The whole thing is just kinda gross.

They're actually the same size, it's just that Golbez is in the head. He's driving the suit of armor through levers and stuff. 8D
Hahahahahahaha oh god that would be the best ever XD WHAT DOES THAT REMIND ME OF

I always assumed it was going to drop anyway, and Cecil's rescue was at the last minute :O Either that, or untying Rosa sets off some kinda crazy contraption that makes it drop. Or something. HMMMM

hahaha ROSA REMAINS ICILY SILENT FOR THE REST OF THE DAY

MAYBE IT IS, MAYBE IT ISN'T

God, wtf.

We have tools which we can use to track this sort of thing and when we become aware of it we have tools we can use to force the Mature filter to turn itself on and lock that way.

Haha, no. They can't tell, unless someone changes their birth date on their already-created account, or creates another account with the same email address, or something like that. If someone just quietly creates another account then there's no way they can know. It's still stupid, though. Art museums don't card people. >O

And I wish they'd bring back the goddamn previews if they're going to do this. Right now flagging something as "mature" is the only way to warn for potentially disturbing/squicky content. Or uploading it off-site and linking to it.


8D LABYRINTH YOU MEAN?

HMMMM maybe :O but it's just weird that it wouldn't start right away if it was going to.

HONESTLY ROSA I'M SORRY I JUST FORGOT YOU WERE THERE.

Date: 2007-10-21 11:38 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] doxinator.livejournal.com
Well, I guess they COULD match up IP addresses and see if the old account had a different birth date or something. But even then, it isn't difficult to change your IP at all, so this whole thing is really just a flimsy way to make nude photographers feel more secure about posting T&A on a site full of teenagers. lol deviantart

AHH, YES

Yeah, but you've got shared computers and public computers to worry about, so you couldn't know if it was the same person unless they put it in their profile or something.

Ahahahah you have the best icon ever.

Aargh frickin' Tower of Zot. I hated this dungeon so hard. Constant monster attacks and I was probably really underleveled and argh.

'SWOON'? Man, I really DID miss out playing the GBA version. Hahaha oh my GOD.

Golbez: Yeah yeah Roz or whoever is fine now GIMME THE CRYSTAL

Hahaha, oh Kain. You and your unrequited love. Favourite side-plot thing of the whole game.

Oh man, while Cecil and that Baron dancer are dancing together I can just see Rosa off on the sidelines, her arms crossed, making the biggest >( face ever.

NINTENDO SIXY-FOOOOOUUUUUURRRRRR i heard that kid actually wound up selling his N64
Speaking of icons, yours looks familiar somehow :O

YES ARGH though this is nothing compared to some of the dungeons later on. cough sylph cave and cave of summons cough

SERIOUSLY just makes me think of teenaged girls fawning over a rock star or something

*cracks up*

I know, the poor guy D: If only I could say more without spoiling anything.

Y'KNOW ACTUALLY there were parts in the original script that hinted (or maybe flat-out said, I don't know) at Rosa and Cecil sleeping together, but they got taken out :O Wonder if they'll put 'em back in the DS version...

I wonder if they'll make a European version of FFIV DS? *is BRITISH* I hope they do. :D
