This is safe for people that haven't finished VLR, right?

Yes. No VLR spoilers.

Darn, I need to finish up my own playthroughs before I can watch. Got two "Bad Ends" so far; looked up a guide for nabbing the true end soon though.

Absolutely phenomenal game so far, really glad I played it. Can't wait to see what's in store with the rest of the endings.

No interest in this one, but I hope a video of this style gets to become a main stay video feature on the site. It could be really neat to see them do it for a game that I care about. I get that because the guys are busy they can't all play the same game, but even if one or two of them feel really strongly about it they could do something like this.

OHGOD PATRICK FACE IN MY FACE

Maybe it's because it's been a while since I've played 999, but I didn't feel like the puzzles in VLR were all that much better than the 999 puzzles. I might feel differently if I went back and played it, though, haha.

EDIT: I did appreciate the ability to skip around in VLR, though I think it takes some of the tension away. I will say, though, that I wasted at least one playthrough (that I remember) gunning for a different ending and ended up getting one I'd unlocked before. :(

Do Patrick's parent's know he's using the internet? Isn't he a little young.

Hah, just finished up the true ending earlier today. Good timing.

Best part of the game is dramatic upside down Sudoku. I knew my obsessive Sudoku playing would pay off one day.

Awesome, I'm about halfway through VLR and really loving it.

My experiences with the two games have pretty much changed my opinion of visual novels.

Is it Halloween? Is Patrick dressing up as his dad? Did this need to be a video?

The sudoku part was simultaneously horrible (fuck sudokus), but absolutely perfect (sudoku epitome of nine-related puzzles).

Also, I peed my pants (metaphorically?) when I saw we were in the desert. It seemed so clear that we were on the ocean given all the wateriness...

I hope that when you finish VLR, you can also do a spoilercast for that too. I'm frantically trying to finish the game before the end of the year so I can put it somewhere near the top of my GOTY list.

I recently ordered 3 copies of 999, one for me, two as christmas presents for friends, which would not have happened if you hadn't endorsed it on the Bombcast. Thanks Patrick, and merry christmas.

patrick you may say some words weirdly incorrectly (I've never heard someone say coerce like that before), but you are fuckin rad <3

Also Ever17, which is part of that series someone mentioned, has a similar style of ending (this is only part of the infinity loop go get more you fucker or something). never completed it, though

Also Analogue is way way way shorter than 999, It took me like, less than 8 hours to finish that game (got all 5 endings, though you will appreciate that 5th ending for someone who likes the ending of 999)

Thanks for everything you've done for us this year, looking forward to the next, especially more Spookin' with Scoops.

Have a fantastic X-mas and a wonderful New Years eve, looking forward to your glorious return in 2013 ^_^

Patrick, Sudoku is really easy. Each row, column, and 3x3 box has to contain the number 1 through 9 with no repeats. There. Explained in one sentence. It's actually a really fun type of puzzle.

Actually, the game hints at how to get the true ending.

Whenever you finish the game and get a bad end, a video plays, kind of like teaser trailer or a sizzle reel. But if you actually pay attention, it's actually telling the player how to get to the true end. You'll notice that doors are flashed in sequence of three which shows the which doors to take in sequence to get one of the two necessary ends. It also flashes an image of the clover bookmark, indicating that it should be taken when prompted. I can't quite find a video of it though, most playthroughs cut at the "Bad End" screen.

I tried to play 999 a couple times but my DS playing is what I do before bed and the amount of reading in it would put me to sleep.
