"This isn't a fighting game; this is Hungry Hungry Hippos" is one of the best scientific assessments this series has delivered.
I really like the chill vibe with Jason and Ben. They bounce off each other nicely and have good back-and-forth conversations. I am a fan of Jeff, but he is set in his opinions and tends to show flagrant disregard for the scientific consensus at times.
I feel this video insufficiently captures the Mahardy Curse of No Progress.
The thing with Final Fantasy is that up till 14 every one of those is seen as the best one to someone.
This reminds me of a guy a few years back who had tried to get into the Final Fantasy series but never really took to any of the installments he tried and was looking on Tumblr for suggestions on the one he needed to give a shot. I forget which ones he tried and bounced off of, but 7 was definitely among them. He was inundated with suggestions from folks stumping for their favorite FF.
The one he really glommed onto ended up being *1*. Go figure.
I'm surprised no one remembered the huge mismanagement allegations against Dennis Dyack.
They're memorable to me because of the big to-do they sparked in one of LPer supergreatfriend's streams. They got mentioned in the chat in connection with the Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter (which was ongoing at the time) and whether or not Dyack could be trusted to head up such a project anymore. The mod, who apparently wasn't familiar with the story and was not a paragon of stability, misinterpreted people taking issue with the accusations presented in Kotaku as taking issue with Kotaku itself, freaked out, and started banning those people as "GamerGaters" (which certainly no one there was).
No one else had this interpretation of events, of course, and the chat devolved into a mass of people trying to explain what was being discussed vs. the mod banning anyone who disagreed with their weird idea of what was going on. That was the biggest meltdown I've seen in a chat. Almost everyone in a fight, unintentionally, with one unreasonable person, who was trying their darnedest to get the chat down to just them.
No, 9 is usually "kyuu"; "ku" is a variant. There are multiple ways to say certain Japanese numbers.
Super Star Wars was the game of the month for the SNES Reddit a while back, and everyone found out that while the presentation is terrific, the gameplay itself is bad. The game just relies on throwing 50,000 enemies at you without any regard to solid design.
I can hear what Ben is saying about the parallels with the ActRaiser soundtrack.
PYF. I was partial to Rainbow Shell, despite it not having an idle animation. Other than that, I think I played Beach a lot just to get a little animation, and I also liked Castle. I don't know why there needed to be two clownfish, other than possible time constraints.
Interview with the creator of Microsoft Solitaire here.
That water looks amazingly good. I just want to live in that water.
We've stopped complaining tediously about Ben, but we've moved to complaining tediously about history, duders' knowledge of history, other posters' knowledge of history, America's knowledge of history, and duders' knowledge of Civ. I'm not sure this is progress.
Anyhow, I really enjoyed this stream, and it makes me want to give that Humble Bundle copy of Civ V in my Steam account a go. Playing it completely incorrectly, of course.
I like Ben's energy. He's a good counterpoint to Jeff, Brad, and Jason, who have a generally more mellow podcasting style - which is also fine but can make for a uniform dynamic.
(I find it odd that he's being cited here both for fixating too much on the given topics and not enough on the given topics. We contain multitudes, apparently.)
