"FOR THE LAST TIME THEY AREN'T GAY, THEY WERE JUST REALLY GOOD FRIENDS" "YEAH RIGHT, IF SMEAGOL WASN'T THERE THEY WOULD'VE BEEN AAAALLLLLL OVER EACH OTHER"

I think I'm getting a cold. Not too surprising since everyone else around here has been sick and all, but still.

This completely fascinates me for some weird reason. Makes me think of how the male knights in Guild Wars do the "Elaine dance" from Seinfeld.
Is it weird that I find this adorable in a wrong kind of way? Maybe I'm more enamored by the song than anything else.
All the Deling City parade cutscenes from FF8 (disc 1), without music. SPOILERS OMG. But man, these scenes are REALLY eerie without music, especially the last one. Gives me chills every time. I think it's really fascinating to listen to all the detail they put into the sound effects, though, especially with the dancers and fireworks and stuff. Makes me wanna watch musicless cutscenes from other games :B
TEARS DOWN MY FACE OH MY GOD
Wilhelm Scream compilation. If you don't know what the Wilhelm Scream is, here's a Wiki. Funny stuff. It's weird how it starts to sound so out of place once you watch these compilations and stuff, especially since you'd probably never notice it otherwise :O
This really shouldn't be so catchy. And man, I really love that art style. Makes me wanna read detective novels.
HEY EVERYBODY CHECK THIS OUT
Real Life Mario Kart! Got this from [livejournal.com profile] waywardoctagon. This is almost too amazing :D
I was really moved by this.
Funny KOs in Bully. HEY I DIDN'T KNOW YOU COULD GET KICKED IN THE CROTCH THAT'S AMAZING

Anyway, enough of that. I do believe it is high time for me to get back to FFIV! When we last left off we went to Agart, opened up the Underworld, got caught inbetween some crossfire and crashed in front of a castle (how convenient!), had Cid leave to go repair the ship, fought Calcobrena, met up with Rydia (who is now an adult and stuff), lost YET ANOTHER crystal to Golbez, chilled out with the dwarves, and now we're going to sneak into the Tower of Bab-il while Golbez is away (he's trying to get into the Sealed Cave when it can only be opened with a key. WHATTA MORAN) and regain all the crystals. Also, the tanks will be a distraction or something. LET'S GO

Previous episodes





Did I ever get a shot of Rydia's new profile pic? I'm too lazy to check. Here it is if I didn't.





Aw jeez, can you imagine how hot it must be in that armor? It's amazing he hasn't melted or anything. What with being surrounded by endless seas of lava and everything.



y helo, distraction tanks






Y HELO, DISTRACTION TANKS



So I guess "sneaking in" means "walking through the front door" in Final Fantasyese or something.
Tower of Bab-il. Pretty sure this is the only new song I need to upload this time around. IF NOT THEN EHHHHHHHHHH I'M SURE IT'LL COME UP LATER



OH JOY



Apparently the same guy who designed Zot designed Bab-il as well.





nom nom



Woooooooooooooooo



lol, FlameMan.



Chest Full of Monsters would make a good band name. Or a song name. Take your pick.



ALART, ALERT

oh god that was the most obscure reference in the world nobody is going to get that



Anyway, Alerts are great. Attack one and it'll summon a monster, and you can just summon and kill it over and over and rake in EXP. It's a lot like... Marions, is that what they're called? The things with the puppets.
You have to attack an Alert for it to do anything at all, by the way. Otherwise it'll just sit there going IMMA IDENTIFYIN' DEEZ OBJECTS :B for eternity.





<3



You get a Blizzard Spear for winning that battle, btw. HAY KAAIIIIINNNNNN



That's a pretty upgrade right there.





OH CEEEEEEEEECIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLL



Not quite as awesome as Kain, but still!



Yeah, Marion! I was right!



This just makes me think of Catwoman, which makes me think of the Catwoman game that was released when that new movie came out, where if you stood idle for a while then Catwoman would randomly start dancing to some porno music. That was the only reason I rented that game.






AND WE'LL NEVER KNOW WHAT WAS INSIIIIIIDE



Heh, Tofu army. I used to be scared of eating tofu for some reason. it was just so slimy and mushy and aaaaaaaaaaaa









Ifrit, in other words. Forgot that chimeras absorb magic for a minute there 8B



OH BOY I FOUND AN ARCHER YOUR GUYS




I didn't get a shot because I am AMAZING but I think it was just another Alert.



Eh well. New armor!




Same situation as before :B












Also known as Ramuh.







And then Shiva's name doesn't get changed. Weird.




Medusa creeps me out D:



AND AFTER MUCH ADVENTURING




Rubicant of Fire! I believe a dwarf mentioned him in the Dwarf Base. He's apparently the strongest of the Four Fiends.



Cecil quietly wipes the sweat from his forehead.






Suddenly, Dancing Calcobrena kicks up and Dr. Lugae starts dancing and spinning all over the place. OH BOY I'M HOME ALONE FINALLY NOW I CAN MAKE A THREE FOOT TALL SANDWICH WITH AN OLIVE ON TOP AND NO ONE WILL BE AROUND TO STOP ME what am i talking about








Hahahahaha he's looking right at them and doesn't even notice. Might wanna get some new glasses there, Doc.







OH MY GOD I ACTUALLY WASN'T THAT FAR OFF WITH THE SANDWICH THING






Sadly, the doctor's ears work just fine.




I don't know, that pause just cracks me up.



WHAT THE WHAT WHAT WHO ARE YOU




hey is this like in Terminator 2 where T-1000 stabs Sarah Connor and is like CALL TO JOHN and Sarah Connor is like ARRRRGG and T-1000 is like CALL TO JOHN CALL TO HIM NOW and






MESS WITH THE BULL AND YOU GET THE HORNS






And now we enter a heart-wrenching battle with Cecil's pediatrician









Haw, haw, haw.




...okay. I don't think I even did any ailment-inducing spells, unless one of my weapons did something and I just forgot. Though it seems odd that a weapon would cause a robot to fall asleep or get poisoned.








Wee! This only happens if you defeat Balnab first, btw. I just did it to show you guys :D
Anyway, you pretty much just use the same strategy as you did before. That being that you have the guys attack, have Rydia cast level 2 spells of some sort, and have Rosa heal or something. Just resort to the usual pummeling method, basically. Balnab-Z is a bit stronger than Balnab, but nothing too terrible.



Though keep in mind that there's not much of a point to fighting Balnab-Z or anything, since you don't get any rewards for this round.









WATCH THIS IS GONNA BE AWESOME ARE YOU READY
ARE YOU READY
WATCH




TADAAAAAAHHHH oh man that is the best trick ever i am so cool




Arrrrrgh



ARRRRRRRRGH



ARRRRRRRGH



Wait, that one wasn't so bad.




T...thanks. What a nice boss.




OH, WELL
NEVERMIND >(






Tower Key! This will surely come in handy! I'm guessing the yellow text means you can't NOT take it, but I didn't try.




Alright.



AGH NO



D: WHAT IS THE POINT OF THAT OH GOD





Just dwarves in general, not a specific group or anything.




ALRIGHT ALRIGHT GET OFF MY BACK




Oh, I see how it is, Warp Device
I'm just not good enough for you, am I






The game is just so happy!










Oh no, Dark Imps, what will I dooooo. Your 199 HP is just too much for little old meeeeeee.




The EXP ain't too shabby, though.






This course of action seems flawed somehow.












BAM




smacked 'im so hard his momma felt the pain




What a strange request.











And I remembered to unequip him! Yesssssss
In all seriousness, though, I do think this is a depressing scene. Cry in Sorrow plays afterwards and continues until you change screens or get into a battle or something. IT SHOULD PLAY THE WHOLE TIME, IT'D BE LIKE THE WEIGHT OF YOUR GRIEF WAS ON YOUR SHOULDERS THE WHOLE WAY OUT or something



Anyway, nothin' else to do but leave.





OH GOD THE JIG IS UP







RUN OH GOD RUN RUN




wait wtf






WHAT IS GOING ON AAAAAAAAAAAA









They're all real torn up over him, as you can see.





AW SHUCKS







CAN'T YOU FIGHT seriously I bet Rydia could summon something






It also looks like whoever is flying that ship is drunk out of their freaking mind.



















In the original script for FFIV, this line was like "I'm going to blow myself up and sacrifice my life to save you! Yang wont be lonely in the afterworld!" or something along those lines. Kind of funny how such a heavy statement was replaced with a sort of flippant OH HAHA WELL LOOKS LIKE I'LL BE STAYING HERE A BIT LONGER SEE YOU GUYS SAY HI TO MY WORKERS FOR ME WONT YOU



Now is Rydia egging him on, or














AND THE MORAL OF THIS STORY IS DON'T GET TOO ATTATCHED TO ANYONE IN THIS GAME YOUR PARTY LINEUP IS GONNA ROTATE MORE THAN A MARIO KART CHARACTER WHEN THEY RUN OVER A BANANA






Well, good to see they dealt with that quickly. I guess.






Guess we better slap a hook on that Enterprise, then. Since that was apparently Cid's dying wish or something.




EIGHT HOURS LATER





















How handy! Good to see the hovercraft isn't COMPLETELY forgotten, like vehicles in FF games tend to be.





"Having trouble handling him" wtf. Yeah I have to tie him to a tree when I'm not watching so he doesn't chase cars or anything, but other than that







BACK IN MAH CLUTCHES




Uh well he's gotta perish sometime, lady
I just realized I probably should've delivered the news to Cid's daughter as well. EH WHATEVER I'LL DO IT LATER








NOTE TO SELF: TRADE TAIL, GET FUNNY ORE



helo dere bab-il



BUT FIRST HEY I HEARD THIS PLACE GOT DESTROYED LET ME RANSACK IT




I don't know why the thought of a run-down throne room weirds me out as much as it does. I mean, it's such a random thing to be weirded out by.




And after quite a bit of stealing...









Yaaaaaaayyyyy I guess. It's sort of in the same boat of uselessness as Toad and Piggy...



This just leads outside, but I went back in 'cause I forgot something.




THIS!



DANGIT



This one's for Kaaaaainnn.



FINALLY GETTING OUT OF THERE god i wandered around there forever




Oh boy! Time to sneak back into Bab-il! Let's do that!

NEXT TIME!


Now if you'll excuse me, I should really make some food since I haven't eaten an actual, legitimate meal in a couple of days because I am a super genius. Hurfsdurf durrrr no wonder I'm getting sick. ow my eyes
