Still accepting requests, guys. I need to get started on those :O

Wow thanks for those incredibly vivid and disgusting nightmares, sub-conscious, that's great.

Hey, this might be old news to some of you, I just found out a couple days ago... but apparently the Tourretes Guy is dead. He got in a car accident and died in his sleep while he was at the hospital or something like that. 'Happened in August. I don't know why that bums me out as much as it does :< I loved the Tourettes Guy.

Ganked this off of [livejournal.com profile] stardust_halos. THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING THING I'VE EVER SEEN
Phoenix Wrong - Guilty Pleasure. Worth watching just to see the adorable opening movie, if nothing else :D Watch out for a couple of (mild?) PW2/PW3 spoilers, though.
REPPUKEN

Anyway, I gots me some FFIV screenshots to show you. When we last left off we went through the Sealed Cave, got the crystal, fought a wall, lost the crystal thanks to Kain getting possessed again, met Cid who put a drill on the Falcon, went to the Town of Monsters and fought Asura and Leviatan, and gave some adamant to Kokkol so he can make us a sword. What happens next?!

Previous episodes





Alright, NOW we're at the Sylvan Cave.



Like in the Land of the Summoned Monsters or whatever it was called, you have to cast Float every time you go to a new floor or else you'll take damage. I think the ground is supposed to be covered in acid or something, here, but I don't know.



Aaaagghhhhh I hate these things.



And this is why. They have an attack called "Breath," which inflicts aaaaallllll of these ailments on your party member(s), and also casts Charm on them.




They also have this, which slowly drains the victim's HP. Also obnoxious.



A house! Rest assured that we will be breaking and entering visiting it shortly.




All these chests are filled with MOOONNSTEEERRRSS




If I don't post the reward, you can pretty much just assume that it was a crappy healing item or something.




This is for Edge. There wasn't any change in his stats when I equipped it, so I just stuck with the swords because I dunno. I like them :V





yeeessssssss





This wasn't for Edge OR Cecil, so I'm assuming it might've been for Kain. A little late, there, FFIV.






Forced out of their natural vaginal habitat and into a mangy old box! WHY I NEVER



Once you're done with this room, you can step on a teleporter and warp outside.



We're not done with this place, though :V
For Rosaaaaa





For Rydiaaaaa. Gives her a pretty big strength boost, but I don't think it changes her defence or magic power or anything.




We're heeeeeee~eeeeeerrrreeee





claws, you say




HEY, ISN'T THAT...



BECAUSE IT REALLY LOOKS LIKE...




YANG!



Aaaaand Cecil doesn't react for some reason. Okay. Guess we'll just warp out, then.




...and let his wife know about it, of course!





Awwwww. It's okay, YangWife :< You don't have to pretend for us.





Um... r-really, it's okay. I... I mean if you want to give him some flowers or something then we're not going to judge you for it or anything. I mean, you're his wife.



But, of course, Cecil still leaps at the opprotunity.




*WHACK*





Hahaha, I guess YangWife wakes him up like this often, then. THAT EXPLAINS A LOT





Cecil: HEY THERE BUDDY HOW'S IT GOING *shoves frying pan behind his back*








Jeez, Edge, his injuries don't really have a lot to do with fighting.



Hahahaha, I guess Yang doesn't think much of ninjas.






Huzzah!










Anyway, guess we better give YangWife a good whack. I mean give the pan back to her. What did I say?




THE QUEST FOR THE SPOOOONNNNN
This is a throwing item, and it is the strongest one there is. It does 9999 damage no matter what. THIS THING IS A NUKE IN DISGUISE, MAN. Hold on to it.
Fun Fact: This was changed to "knife" in the GBA version. LAAAAAAAME. They better change it back to "spoon" in the DS version or I am gonna be so mad




Haha, yeah. I wonder what the king is doing?













Hoo boy. This battle is a doozy. Don't worry about healing or anything, just attack Odin with all you've got (BUT NOT THE SPOON). I had Cecil attack, Edge use Blitz, Rosa use Aim, and Rydia summon Indra/Ramuh.







Awwww yeah.



Oh, watch out for when he raises his sword, because...






...it means you'll be dead if you don't act quickly. Yep, Odin is a timed battle, and you only have a few turns to take him down. Oh yeah, also, he has 20500 HP. AWESOME.



Trying this again...



DAMNIT.
Alright, alright. Guess I better go level some more.



Got this at some point. Brings whoever back to life AND restores all of their HP :D Pretty cool, though it uses a TON of MP, as you can see.






Oh. And I may have picked this up at some point. |3 You can go back to Odin once you have this, but I decided to level a little more, first.






...I also decided this was the perfect opprotunity to show you what some of the spells looked like.






Your standard offensive summon.







Guess she decided to heal me this time around :D Awesome.








Also awesome, and a bit more reliable than Asura, in a sense.



Eventually remembered that OH YEAH THERE'S CONJURERS IN THE LAND OF SUMMONED MONSTERS :B and went there for a while.




Rosa charmed a Conjurer, and instead of calling anything it just sat there doing this. Repeatedly. I think I broke it, guys



SO ANYWAY let's give this punk a taste of our Lit3!



Heh. Heh.
Alllllrriiiigggght.




And there's another battle I never would've won if it weren't for Rydia. I LOVE YOU RYDIA






Woooooo!

Well, those are all the side-quests we can do at this moment. Let's get on with the ACTUAL PLOT and head over to Mysidia!







Just in case you forgot about this work of literary genius.
The title screen music starts playing at this point, and continues into the next scene. That theme means a lot to me in general, but something about it playing here really moves me for some weird reason.


























I think The Big Whale starts up at this point.
















WOOOOOOO BIG WHAAAAALLLLEEEEE









Cecil accepts this explanation and goes to check out his sweet ride.





OHHHHHHHHH YEEEEEEEAAAAH DUUUUUUUUUUUDE OH MAN THIS IS AWESOOOOOOOOOMMEEEEE
That square Cecil is standing by is the way out. There's another on the other side.
Also, I'm pretty sure The Big Whale plays while you're inside, and it also plays while you're flying it. It can get a little grating after a while :B



There's the Crystal of Flight that the Elder was talking about.




Some nice beds... chairs... bedchairs for you to sleep in. Seriously what are those things



No need for carrots anymore, for you've got your own personal Big Chocobo right there in the ship |3



Here's the control panel, which you use to make the ship flllyyyy. It took me a really long time to find this when I first played.




WEEEEEEE



Sadly, that big ol' whale can't go into the Underworld, so you have to go back and grab one of your airships. :B





GUYS GUYS CHECK OUT MY NEW SWORD
EXCALBUR.






unf unf unf unf



Anyway guess we better head on over to the moon and find out WHO THE HELL WAS CALLING ME AT 4 AM ON A TUESDAY DON'T YOU PEOPLE KNOW I HAVE WORK IN THE MORNING








AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA



Oh, it was just Earth. Whew. Apparently Earth doesn't have any continents or anything.



Oh hey, it's the moon! Hi, Moon!



GETTIN' CLOSER



CLOSER CLOSER CLOSER AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA




And we're here!



That castle over there is where we're supposed to go. We will in a sec.
Also, the moon's map is very, very, VERY small. Like... right now we're at the castle? You could fly just a little ways North, maybe just for about a second, and the map will loop and you'll be right back at the castle. And yet, of course, I still manage to get lost. DURR



Also, Cecil and co. apparently do not need spacesuits to survive in space or anything. Those guys are hardcore. Oh yeah, and Another Moon plays when you walk on the moon. Kinda spacey and creepy.
Anyway, let's just mosey inside this little cave here...



WHOA



This is what most of them do. A little tune plays whenever this pops up.



There's a merchant somewhere in there, and I do advise that you stock up. No need to be thrifty with your cash anymore.



WHO COULD IT BEEEE



So is Namingway's full name Namingway Humingway? Because that's the best name ever.



Hahaha HEY I THOUGHT YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE AT EARTH




Anyway, let's go to that mysterious ol' castle.



You can't just park in front of the castle, however. You have to go through the Lunar Path. This gets more and more annoying each time you do it. OH? WHAT'S THAT? YOU'RE OUT OF SUPPLIES? LUNAR PATH, SUCKA!
The Lunarians plays while you go through the path. I think this played in that one place where Cecil turned into a paladin, but I can't remember. I think it did, though.



THAT DON'T LOOK LIKE NO PUDDING I'VE EVER HAD |<




Haaaaaaaaaate these things.



And this is why. They CONSTANTLY poison you. And it's not like Charm or something where it goes away once the battle is over -- you HAVE to cure it, whether that involves spending Heals (100 GP each) or spending Rosa's MP (pretty sure it costs about 20 MP to cast 'Heal,' which is really a pretty decent amount points). Seriously obnoxious.






Oh boy! Thankfully, this one is pretty short.




NOW we can go to the castle.








If you examine the HP square, monsters pop out! I'm not sure how that works, either!



These guys will cast Petrify on you a lot, and their physical attacks do little to no damage. They're really harmless in this battle, which is bizarre because they're pretty tough everywhere else. Whatever, FFIV.








Well, at least this gives me a chance to try out my new summon!




Your reason for fighting them |3





Anyway.









MORE COLOR-CHANGING WOOOOOO






OH GOD WHAT WAS THAT




OH JESUS IT'S A MAN with a blue beard. This game, I swear.





FuSoYa is awesome. More on that later.







Why is Earth not capitalized >(









The plot thickens!



Maybe FuSoYa should write an Earthling-to-Lunarian dictionary :B







You hear a gong noise once this text box pops up.



Everything pauses. Everything goes silent.



'The Lunarians' starts to play.












And that, my friends, is where we will leave off.


Sorry this is so short. I'll try and get another episode up as soon as I caaaannn. Hopefully when I'm feeling less out of it.

Edit: OH YEAH AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIYAMOTO I LOVE YOU I still need to check out Super Mario Galaxy, that reminds me.

MARLBOROS god i hate those things no matter what game you're playing annoying in 6, 7, 8, 9...

FUSOYA MEANS THE END OF THE GAME IS NEAR :O Also wow did the plot of this game suddenly take a giant crazy turn in a few seconds.

YES ARRRGH those are probably about my least favorite monster in the FF series >(

Hahahaha, the timing of this actually worked out oddly well. What with 2008 being right around the corner and all. THE END OF FFIV AND THE END OF THE YEAR WOO

HEY CECIL GUESS WHAT YOU'VE BEEN FIGHTING THE WRONG PERSON THE ENTIRE TIME
HEY CECIL GUESS WHAT YOUR DAD WAS ACTUALLY AN ALIEN A LUNARIAN
HEY CECIL
HEY CECIL

I remember trying to superlevel up my characters from like, level 14 with all the statbonuses on the Island Closest to Hell in FF8 and whenever a Marlboro showed up it was always a OH GOD HERE'S HOPING I GET LUCKY kind of moment. Although one time Odin showed up and killed one instantly, that was pretty awesome. |D
FRIGGING MARLBOROS THOUGH

Cecil just constantly has a D: through all of this. EVERYTHING YOU KNEW WAS A LIE!

Oh my god, that halftime show IS the best thing ever! I thought they were doing Pong or Space Invaders until the music kicked in, and then... :D

Hahahahah wtf it's like a nest of tentacles with a mouth! And... eyes on stalks?

"What are you doing here?"
STEALING ALL YOUR STUFF, DUH.

Hahahahahah WHACK.

Holy crap, really? A spoon? That is one badass spoon.

...it means you'll be dead if you don't act quickly. Yep, Odin is a timed battle, and you only have a few turns to take him down. Oh yeah, also, he has 20500 HP. AWESOME.

D:

Ooooo, Fire3 looks awesome.

Oh, cool! So all that was to get him as a summon?

BIG WHALE IS BIG.

...BIG CHOCOBO IS BIG seriously maybe they should have stopped feeding that thing after it got too big to fly

EXCALBUR XD awesome

Wooooooo STAT BOOST how come the left hand one went down, though?

Oh, it was just Earth. Whew. Apparently Earth doesn't have any continents or anything.

JUST A BIG BALL O' WATER

...And people live on the moon. Of course.

If you examine the HP square, monsters pop out! I'm not sure how that works, either!

Haha, that sounds amazingly handy.

I actually didn't see that coming. :O

ISN'T IT every time they'd start up a new song I'd get this giant grin on my face :B And that Pokemon battle was hardcore.

Oh, Malboro. Cause of FF tentacle porn everywhere. |3

Yup, and he's a pretty good summon, too :D Has a chance of instantly killing whoever you're attacking. Weeeeee

GOD BIG CHOCOBO TAKE A WALK ONCE IN A WHILE OR SOMETHING

Some equips just have certain penalties and stuff :O Wow, that was a great sentence. ANYWAY but yeah, like in this case you get a HUGE STRENGTH BOOST OH GOD in exchange for a small decrease in defence. Most of the time these exchanges are acceptable, but you still really have to pay attention to these things when you're equipping your party since Square likes to throw in a few... odd equips in there. I remember getting something for (I think) Rydia, and it gave her this big boost in strength and significantly lowered her magic power. ADURRRRR THIS EQUIP IS AWESOME GUYS HURHFSDFH

I REALLY DON'T THINK THERE'S ANY WAY YOU COULD HAVE SEEN THAT COMING, REALLY XD Square sure whipped out their bag of tricks for this one I tell you what

From: [identity profile] melaniedavidson.livejournal.com
IT WAS and with the person coming out and kneeling like that for the other person to be shoved over them. :D *looks at that sentence* Well, you know which bit I mean. Somebody had a lot of fun planning all that.

I WASN'T GOING TO SAY ANYTHING cough but now that you've brought it up I think quite a few of those monsters could have a lucrative career in hentai. :3

OH I see. Like on this MUD I used to play, where there were lots of stat items but they all had different penalties. Like the dex gloves were a constant, slow drain on mp-equivilent, the wis cap I think had a str or con penalty or something and it drained hp if you left it on long enough blah blah blah. Hahahaha I guess they don't want people to just pick stuff up and equip it, then. JUST BECAUSE IT'S THERE.

NO KIDDING I was not expecting him to be an alien.

Hey waitasecond Yang isn't dead after all! First Cid came back and now this? Final Fantasy IV lied to me :<

argh Malboros. Every time I come across them in an FF game, I immediately switch to "Run away! Run away!" mode, no matter how easy to beat they happen to be. :B

Prince Edge is a kickin' rad fighter, maaaaaan

Woah, go Rydia with your Lit-3 skills. :D

Ehhhh, I never really liked FuSoYa. I dunno why, maybe it was his kinda-weird role in the ending.

OH SHI- I FORGOT ABOUT MIYAMOTO'S BIRTHDAY I should send you a thank-you card or something :B

Date: 2007-11-18 04:18 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] doxinator.livejournal.com
I SECRETLY GIGGLED TO MYSELF WHENEVER SOMEONE MENTIONED THAT THEY WERE SAD ABOUT THEIR DEATHS :B

I hate Malboros so much >( The only reason I fought them this time around is because I could take them out with two hits from Cecil and/or Edge, and because they gave out some nice EXP. Of course then they STILL managed to use Breath all the time and afdkgjhadlg

Haha, yeah, I can see whatcha mean by that. Which is about all I can say without giving anything away. But I dunno, I always thought he was pretty cool for some reason 8D And he's useful in combat.

I WOULDN'T HAVE REMEMBERED IF IT HADN'T BEEN MENTIONED ON MY FRIENDS PAGE man I feel like I should make a cake or something. A cake shaped like a giant N.

hah hah that's very wife-like, giving him a frying pan to HIT HIM WITH wake him up. :x

That RockMoth is pretty. :o

That is some high...literature. xD Shakespeare would be proud, I'm sure.

WOOOOO BIG WHALE WOOOO that is actually a funny name now that i think about it

aaaaaaaaaaa pixels woah that's earth? Looks more like a blob of blue...

FuSoYa sounds like a bad AOL username. xD
