OH GOD, WHY DO I HATE MYSELF SO MUCH – FFVII Ep. 1

Well, my dear friends… because I simultaneously love and hate myself, and am greatly anticipating and fearing the remake of Final Fantasy VII that is on the way… I have chosen the original for my next Let’s Play. It’s not my personal favorite Final Fantasy, but it’s the first one I played. I think it’s a good game. I also think it’s slightly overrated, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy it. I also consider the extended universe to be slightly silly, but the game is still good. This is going to be my biggest undertaking yet, but I’ll get through it somehow… let’s get it started!

If somehow you haven’t play this game yet, this is going to be a pretty complete runthrough. I’m not making promises about doing EVERYTHING, but I’ll do most of it. And it’ll be pretty serious, though I might make fun of the game a little. I just can’t help myself sometimes.

I’m playing the version released on Steam. I still have my discs, and I could run it using an emulator, but that would bring up some graphical glitches and wouldn’t be as smooth of an experience. So to make everything easier, I’ll be using the Steam version, which also has slightly improved graphics.

LET’S GOOOOOOO

STARS! (Also, I did something with the overlay to try and take up some of the dead space)

MORE STARS!

They look archaic now, but these graphics blew my damn mind back in 1997.

The flower girl was just hanging out in the alley. That’s… that’s a little weird, but I won’t question it.

The End – Super Mario RPG. Ep. 28

Welcome back to Save File Plays Mario RPG. The last episode of Save File Plays Mario RPG. Because we’re at the end of the game, and it’s time to END THIS. I’ve done basically everything. Things I DID NOT DO: Grate Guy’s Casino (I showed it exists though), 30 Super Jumps, 100 Super Jumps, and all the Surprise Boxes. But I defeated Culex and Jinx, and did everything else. So… let’s finish it off!

First of all:
Ep. 28.mp4_000008757
I did a little grinding off camera to get Mario, Toadstool and Geno all to Level 30.

I’m also ending the game a 93/99 possible Flowers and 999 Coins.

Mario has the Lazy Shell, Hero Shirt and Safety Badge to make him immune to status effects and insta-death. Toadstool has the Frying Pan, the Lazy Shell, and the Jinx Belt which makes her slow, powerful and basically the undying.

Lastly, Geno has the Star Gun, the Star Cape, and the Quartz Charm from Culex just because it seems apropo with the “Star” theme.

Ep. 28.mp4_000042883 Ep. 28.mp4_000048661 Ep. 28.mp4_000053941
Toadstool’s defense is MASSIVE. Geno is the fast, but powerful guy, and Mario will just wreck your shit.

HERE WE GOOOOOOOOO!

The Gate – Super Mario RPG Ep. 27

Welcome back to Save File Plays Super Mario RPG! Last time, we did the rest of whatever I wanted to do outside. Now, there’s nothing left to do but beeline it to Smithy and kick his arse so hard he’ll kiss the moon! LET’S GET TO IT.

This area is super sparse and bare bones. The screws are an interesting mechanic, they need to be jumped on to move forwards.

Ep. 27 P1.mp4_000033841 Ep. 27 P1.mp4_000040008
OH MY GOD, IT’S ADORABLE.

Ep. 27 P1.mp4_000043344
FUCK IT UP!!!!

17 Exp for a OHKO? I love this place!
