FFIX is amazing. What a charming game. I don’t understand why it is so divisive. This is one of Squaresoft’s best.
I used to love it.

However once FF13 came out, my hate for that game spilled over to where I also completely hate FF12 and 15. Unfortunately it also made me kind of hate long stretches of FF9 as well.

I imagine it is the same for others.

One of the donations: "My favorite couple is booker and elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite, one day I'll get around to completing it."

That killed chat for a second.

There is potential for pretty big (for this area) snowfall this evening. As much as I enjoy being there in the stream room for the finale, I'm not sure if I want to risk being snowed in without a hotel room to do it this year.

Man, there's been some JRPG runs I've really enjoyed, but fuck me I cannot get behind a run this long that's like, 90% cutscenes and mashing through dialogue.

I realise these are the comments of an old man, but could they not provide something comfortable for the runner? Sitting in that chair for more than 9 hours must be torture, even for someone that's pretty young. D:

wah
poyo
am i doing this right
I've only been following the event since 2011 after all
Repetitive loud memes are straight up annoying.
Those dancing guys are bad people
Why do couch people have to be annoying
....

Beating dead horses done quick
:)

As an aside, has there been a single thing you have enjoyed? I couldn't find anything when searching through your posts in this thread.

The game doesn't do a great job explaining this, but 800 years ago the summoners lived in Alexandria and almost destroyed it when they summoned Alexander. They split Alexander's crystal into 4 shards, gave 1 to each nation on the Mist Continent, and took the 4th with them when they left to found Madain Sari. The 4 shards are collected in game as Garnet and Eiko's jewels, the jewel in the harp from Cleyra, and a jewel from Lindblum.

The TASblock was so bad I'm not sure I want to see them again at these things. :P

Regarding FF9, I've essentially forgotten everything about it. The only thing that stuck with me is some of the music. Same goes for a LOT of PS1 and PS2 jrpgs. So much time seemingly totally wasted now. :P

Please, couch. Hilda Garde 2.0? The name of that airship is Hilda Garde III. Hilde Garde II was the airship Cid used to bring Zidane back to Alexandria from Treno after the card tournament.

Okay I love long runs as much as the next guy, but I think the 9+ hours may be pushing it lol. I stopped watching before bed because I still want to play FFIX one day, and I wake up and it’s STILL ON. Hope it’s been a good one.
