Man, I hate babies.

Beautiful episode. 3rd time and I enjoy the waste. :)

WTF? I just finished a first playthrough on Hard and had no issues with the burnt babies.
I hope they learn not to be such SP pussies. HIT EM HARD!

Posted by IrishCoffee

You would think that after the amount of wipes these guys have had they would remember to save at every little chance they get... 
 
God I love watching these guys fail

Hilarious episode!  This show would not be as much fun to watch if Jeff and Vinny played flawlessly.  If they were perfect, there wouldn't be anything for us to talk or bitch about.  LOL

I vote for NOT grinding, but rather to play smarter.  Like other folks have said.  You'll get a great deal more experience points if you don't retreat to lower levels (although you still need to beat the mini-boss on level 7 so you can get the key to the last floor main boss).  Keep going!

  • Use fire attack items like firecracker against those burnt-babies.  
  • Use Yosuke's confuse spell, tenta .... forget what it is.  
  • Don't forget to re-equip Charlie with that anti-confuse ring.  I forget the name of it.  
  • Don't accept Pyro Jack from the shuffle, you already fused one that is way more powerful due to the SLink experience bonus.
  • When you fight tough enemies like the burnt-babies, you have to go all out and kick their ass immediately, don't screw around.  Don't worry about wasting SP or items.  
  • Heal Charlie first!  Always.
  • Remove ailments from charlie as soon as you can, unless you have the opportunity for an instant victory by killing all enemies in that round.
  • Remove status ailments from your main attacker, as soon as you can.  (Against the burnt-babies, your main attackers were Charlie with the right persona and Yukiko with her fire spells.)  If they can't attack, you're screwed.
  • Don't take the stairs until you have cleared the entire floor.  You need the experience.

  Good tips! I couldn't believe they died twice in the same episode! And against the same enemy. I don't remember those avarice babies giving me that much trouble! LOL
 
Regardless, this episode provided great entertainment for the end of my work day. :)

Why is it so funny to me when they wipe? And why is it twice as funny to see it happen twice in an episode... on the same enemy?
 
I'm a sick, sick man.

Maybe you should've, I dunno, saved before you went back in.

Edited by Xymox

Actually you shouldn't need to be a psychic or have any kind of prior knowledge before fights. I never had to randomly (and out-of-character) equip items to counter stuff that was going to happen. And I never had to know what weakness a monster had before fighting it for the first time. Maybe that was all luck, but, I honestly felt the game was very good about giving you that initial breathing space so you could figure that stuff out during the battles. And at least from my experience, I didn't feel P4 was a trial & error type RPG at all... If you actually clear the floor before going up to the next I don't think you should have a problem. And if you do, perhaps try and get that player initiative or something. Or maybe guard, use debuffs and buffs? As mentioned, those things are actually pretty handy, believe it or not. And if you still can't do it, there's no shame in running. It's right in the menu if you think you can survive until you can escape. There's a spell to instantly escape. And if you're out of SP or on a character that can't cast that spell, there's also an item. Like, it will not leave you completely crippled and underleveled if you skip a fight, as long as you're not skipping everything. And if you take what you learn from your first encounter with that monster, you can always go and make a new persona to counter it. Uhm, but from the comments though, it seems people actually had quite a rough time against these babies. Guess I was lucky? :> *shrug* *yip*

those babies are tough

Posted by BrockSampson

It is astounding how serious people take this endurance. A lot of laughs to be had. Keep playing exactly how you have been. If things were done how some people want them here it would be no fun. But of the fun is watching them fumble around like most of us do with these types of games. People need to relax.

This is why Kanji, Teddy, Yukiko is the best teeeaaaam

Posted by spilledmilkfactory

hahaa oh man. awesome.

Posted by VanTesla

 Please use your items and characters powers ....  You guys had items that could have saved you and Yosuke had Tentrafoo which makes the foes confused and could have saved you from dieng both times.... Please dont stop the game if you die to much as well. I love the show and you guys rock but after being on so long and so far you should have picked up on this a bit ...?

Posted by cityofdis0

Rofl. Awesome episode!

How all those nerd rage retards. Quit bitching. Your starting to sound like GameSpot users. Go watch one of the reviews on that site and read the comment. It should be like looking in a mirror.   Keep rolling on GB!

Posted by bagleyjw

ugh, thats the part of rpgs that piss me off. almost like you are supposed to die over and over

Posted by Spiritof

(should have numbered this episode -1 of the ER)

Posted by Venatio

I will say what hundred people before me has said, FIGHT THE MINI-BOSSS ON LEVEL 7

Also, please use the stronger attacks you have

Posted by nanikore

Aww gross, that bird has 3 legs!

Posted by RabidSquirrel89

If you guys want to know where the personas' names are from, just look at the compendium.

Posted by Nasar7

ugh you guys can have no sense of strategy sometimes. And stop using light attack spells! If you had used maragion instead of maragi, you would've done enough damage to kill them if you had attacked with yosuke before and after. Those fights are so easy. Magaru>Maragion>Rush/Magaru = Dead Babies

Posted by Majinken

Don't feel bad. I had to put the controller down the first time I fought those fucking things. An hour of my life, gone.

Posted by outerabiz

this is the second episode i watch, and you guys kinda suck... are they always this bad?
Anyway this was a fun episode nonetheless, beating burned babies is tough living but you gotta do what you gotta do!

Posted by snakefry

Vinny, When are you going to give jeff the controller?

Posted by theacclaimed

honestly it'd probably be funnier to see them get to the 10th floor and find out they need a key.  so stop yelling at them :P

Posted by Metroid545

You missed the miniboss! You WILL regret it dudes you need to go back!

Posted by RedSox8933

AHH!!! You guys NEED to go back to level 7 and beat the mini boss, seriously.

Posted by Mezmero

Great run as always duders.  Maybe getting beat by the "It's Alive!" babies is an indication to either bail and S-link or to swap in B-team and start from the bottom again or to get revenge on the hama birds.  Also I'm curious to know if you saw that the Soul Food item restores all SP, but whatever.  Your call as always, its good to see the run stay alive.

Posted by shintsurugi

Ah, you guys. Always know how to start of the week strong!

Keep at it. And I'm probably too late to say no dead baby jokes. *shudder*

Posted by Onomarchus

I'm not the first to say it: Tentarafoo with Yosuke should sort it out.

Posted by xDot

This is why you should carry persona with all 4 elements not just lightning, and then letting Yosuke sort 'em out etc.

yata garasu is a yugioh card....lol

1. Remember to guard.

2. Remember to use Vanish Ball.

3. Attack items can save your ass.

Killer boy here we come! Oh remember you need the key.

@deathswhisper: to quote chie "ooh oooh me!" I don't think watching them die twice in 20 minutes was very entertaining...

i know its made for entertainment, im not suggesting they study a walkthrough from now on, but they are struggling right now.

also I think they do care, enough that jeff keeps suggesting a gameshark...

so...maybe it is a dating sim.....? "
We'll, the S.Linking is maybe dating sim lite, I mean there's no way you can fail. In Persona 3 you could piss someone off and have to apologize, but P4 doesn't even have that restriction, which is good. The social interactions are fun in the context of the RPG structure, but on it's own they'd probably be pretty flat (if a little quirky). I'm hopping that P5 has more RPG bonuses for S.linking, like combo moves or something.

Ok some people need to take a deep breath hold it hold it hold it release......there now. We as a whole do not need to take this soooo seriously its alright. it is going to be ok. the world is not going to end. 

Posted by bigall94

I laughed at the Pokemon reference. I think you should save next time after fusing. also, I guess everybody is saying go back a floor so why not?

This show is made for entertainment.  Who cares if they die as long as they crack jokes doing it.

"Well at least in this episode I learned that Garu is Japanese for Wind Spell. lolI think they recorded this episode either Thursday or Friday last week because the page and screen shot has been up since then. Don't get to upset that they didn't follow your advice from the last episode. "
Ah, that makes sense.  Okay, hopefully they go back to level 7 when they play today. "
Wait, what?"
Dethfish was explaining that this episode was probably recorded on Thursday or Friday last week, which means they wouldn't have been able to see the comments on episode 85 (because it hadn't been posted yet / had just been posted) saying they needed to finish floor 7.  Therefore, the next episode they post will have been played and recorded today, Monday, and they'll hopefully take said comments on episode 85 into account in their play session today. "
Ah, OK...I thought for a moment there was going to be another ER today, heh.
