I still think of Ryan every time I see Mark Ruffalo.

I'd like to give it a shot, if you have extra space. I don't know if I'll be on too frequently though, if that makes any difference.

Breakdancing Kanji, ballet Yukiko, Vogue-ing Naoto, and whatever the fuck Teddy's doing?! I don't know if I'd want to play the game, but I respect the SHIT out of its style!!

A few days ago, I probably would have said no, but my roommate started playing through FF7 for his first time yesterday and it flipped some switch in my brain. Who would have thought that spending 60-70 hours on a game during some of the most formative years of childhood would have left such an impact?

@samsara: I didn't even realize that stuff was there. I "beat" it and watched most of the credits (but I guess I missed that last part). That does make things easier.

Or I suppose one could just do what @shmellow said.

*The asterisk is there in the title because there is one factor that could cause this not to work entirely, but I don't think it should be an issue.

I'm putting this in a spoiler tag because this COMPLETELY trivializes any sense of exploration or "piecing the puzzle together" on your own. It can also be used to help nail down the last few stragglers if you get stuck trying to find all of the clips.

Hope this helps!

The search function in the game returns clips that contain your search terms (either spoken or in the notes), in chronological order. All of the clips start out with the word "BLANK" in their notes sections. Therefore, if you start on a fresh new save file, searching for "BLANK" gives you clips 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. If you edit the notes of those 5 clips so that it doesn't say "BLANK" any more, searching for "BLANK" gives you clips 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. If you keep doing this, it will (or should) give you every single clip, in order.

The reason I say "should" is that there may be clips which contain the word "blank" in the dialogue. If she says something like "I'm drawing a blank", "wrote a blank check", or "had a blank expression", then those clips will still show up in "BLANK" searches even if you remove the notes. It won't be a problem unless there are 5 or more clips like that (and I honestly don't know if there are any).

I don't really expect there to be an Unfinished (or QL if/when it comes out of Early Access), but I'm torn on how I think one would go. On the one hand, it could be fun seeing the crew try (and maybe even complete?) some assembly-style puzzles. On the other hand, it might be 20 minutes of skirting agonizingly close to the solution without ever realizing it (see: Quick Look: Magicka 2).

Do you think a video of this game would be of any value?
