Final Fantasy VIII – Part 9

The Spoony One | Mar 21 2009 | more notation(s) | 

Disc 2 starts off inauspiciously as our heroes have been imprisoned by the nefarious Sorceress! What horrors await them at the not-so-tender mercies of Seifer and his electric bed? Is there any hope of rescue from this mobile, subterranean prison, or will its anti-magic field spell doom?

    I guess I overlooked most of these heinous crimes when I played through this section. Probably because I was too frustrated to give it much attention.

    Seriously, thank you, Spoony, for bringing out the spotlight of “WTF” and pointing it at these glaring flaws! This shit has gone overlooked for too long.

  • Atom

    This series of videos is really getting to the point of being just for those people that are crying for it. Sure it’s funny, but it’s getting redundant. I get it, the game sucks. I guess you get more out of it if you’ve played it? I mean the game must really suck, I was able to endure all the Phantasmagoria videos. The WAR GAMES sequence was good!

  • iheardthatcurtis

    It’s only my opinion people so don’t flame on me, but… you’re clearly avoiding the game itself. :) I do think there’s a bit too much time spent on other things. A bit too long star wars clip (the joke itself was hilarious though), a bit too long insano cameo, a bit too long missilebasewhatever video… And some of the logical problems are getting a bit tiresome and forced like “how dows that even get the government funding! etc.” Who the hell thinks like that when playing Final Fantasy? Still this video is very good and funny. Not sure though should you be doing this review just because some fans want to… It kinda shows.

    Atom: yeah, this is gold for those who have actually played it. I’m definitely not one hounding Spoony for these videos, but huge props to his actually deconstructing the game with level-headed WTFs against the insanity of what’s in the game.

    I, and anybody else who’s played the game, just kind of sloughed those things off because it didn’t make enough sense to even TRY to piece it together in its OWN storyline, much less actually question its elements more objectively!

    I’m surprised you didn’t make a big deal of the guards pinning down your party before Irvine shows up. I mean, their machine guns were actually having an effect for once!

    Oh, and also the blatant Christ imagery with Squall on the electric table.

    Man, this game SUCKS.

  • Raion

    (firstly, I’m not a native speaker, so please bear with me)
    I agree with Atom. While funny, you’re very close to pulling off the Nerd Manouver. His early reviews, which focused on the games, were hilarious, but later he decided he wanted to be more of a director and less of a reviewer, and we end up with more, and more time spent on sketches and masquerades, that really don’t add anything to the video. in fact they water down the whole.
    I am very aware that the things to pick on are wearing thin as you progress, and the only thing left is the story and it’s ludricous contraptions, but consider this: if you spend so much time in your video to wander off on other things, you basically slow down the progress of these reviews. I think you could wrap things up in about 5 more. but at this rate you’ll take forever.
    finally, don’t get me wrong, I love it, as much as I enjoy pretty much anything else you come up with, so I’m looking forward to the next ones (by the way, I irratinoally love FFVIII and I had a blast watching you tear it apart).
    thanks man

    That was great! And I’m really beginning to see Doctor Isanos significance in this review. I can’t wait till you get to throw a comment about what happens to Balamb (Garden, since the towns name is actually Balamb). And Esthar and Lunatic Pandora will probably be pretty awesome too. Doctor Insano’s beginning to grow on me. But don’t use him too much!
    Also, the ending was awesome. I hadn’t really ever thought about that “spraying nukes all over the earth” part, but yeah, when you think about it, they really were morons to let Selphie operate the controls.
    Can’t wait till the next part. Luckily you’ll be catering us with Swat 4 until then.
    All you guys have a great weekend!
    PS. As a kid I honestly thought that there wasn’t anything strange about the prison. I just thought it was cool.

    What Raion said. Exactly.

    No doubt you’ve got a fair amount of people watching this who have never played the game. (I know at least one of them. :P)
    I’ve played it myself and I know just how zany this shit gets. Later on, it gets downright batshit insane and I look forward to seeing everybody’s reaction to it.
    Just make sure the focus is on the game itself. Definitely need to slow down quite a lot and show more footage. There is a -massive- goldmine of hilarity in this game and all its silliness, in the plot, character development, and gameplay events.

    Take it easy, refocus, and keep it real, yo.

    I love the finish. Hilarious way to abort the series, I was laughing hard at the brilliance of it.

    I’m surprised how many people in the comments seemed to miss the message and think there’s more videos coming. He’s made it clear he’s sick of it and there’s not much more he can do with the material.

    Your FF8 videos are fantastic, brings back all those disappointing memories.

    Think FF8 was the turning point in my life, from optimistic teenager to bitter cynical adult.

    Keep them coming.

    I agree with the posters who say focus more on the game and less on the little clips (some are good, the 9999 popup was gold), they add a bit but dont go overboard.

    Great Job Spoony although I like FF 8 (even Triple Triad). But I can laugh about that.

    You asked why Aerith couldn’t be revived with a simple Revive spell? Easy: Sephiroths Blade is Magical (no shit that’s true) You can’t revive someone with a phoenix down or a spell after the person got killed by his sword.

  • HenrySpock

    Great review – and the Phantom Menace/Wargames parodies were fantastic. I personally like the new style as opposed to the first 5 or so – granted, those had a more down to earth feel, but that also involved more screen time spent explaining just how grueling the game was. Now that that’s out of the way, the lampooning style is really fun. Thanks Noah! Best thing about 2009, you are.

    What about every other magical attack in the game?

    How does a magic-based attack make it harder to use magic to heal?!

    You mean like a Magic Seal or Mute? Don’t you guys ever learn? Magic doesn’t imply logic xD!

    No, seriously I don’t know. And who gives a crap. It’s a fantasy game. There is a slight hint in the title. Please don’t tell me your fantasies are always logic, because that would be sad.

    I admit that there are some heavy flaws, like how did Selphie heal Xell in a the anti-magic Cell (rhyme)?

    But overall that’s no reason for me to hate a game. I liked the characters, the story and the gameplay with all the micro management.

  • Shinizaru

    I’m gonna look l;ike an ass for this, but I love the weapons so much I just have to say what they are. Kiros uses a weapon called a Katar. THey’re mainly held in your hand and used to slice, pierce, and stab like what Kiros does. Some can be mounted on a mechanism that holds them for you and even launches them a short distance.

    Now that that’s out of the way THANK YOU!!! I hated the Jail part of this damned game the most. The only thing I liked about it is it puts you nearer to Odin (If I remember right) so you can get him. It’s a shame Odin dies and you get the shittiest piece of crap in the entire game Gilgamesh. Anyway. Good review, can’t wait for part 10

THey’re mainly held in your hand and used to slice, pierce, and stab like what Kiros does. Some can be mounted on a mechanism that holds them for you and even launches them a short distance.

    Now that that’s out of the way THANK YOU!!! I hated the Jail part of this damned game the most. The only thing I liked about it is it puts you nearer to Odin (If I remember right) so you can get him. It’s a shame Odin dies and you get the shittiest piece of crap in the entire game Gilgamesh. Anyway. Good review, can’t wait for part 10

    You remember wrong, Odin is located on another continent (Centra). But while trying to save the Balamb Garden you have the chance to get Leviathan by drawing it from the balamb garden master. Did I mention that I kinda know every secret of this game and actually played like 10 times through…I know I suck for liking it. And yeah I agree Gilgamesh is a piece of junk.

  • Lanthroviel

    I liked it, though you did spend a lot of time with the star wars bit^^.

    Anyway, yeah, Although I love how you tear this apart, you should fasten this a little bit.At least in the scenario, don’t put too much on the crap that is not related with the stories, like with those car and military base (by the way, I think that the garage is here just for the soldier to come back and come in no? thats why its at the top of the prison) and rather and the heroes itself.The part with the blowjob and that gay man was great, the part with the music and the magic shield a little bit too long.You should keep the reserved time for event like, later, the concert, or when you have to rescue the Whore during the Academy attack, or this obnoxious double fight against seifer a little after, or the twist after,or the weapons again^^.

    You know, I played FF8,and I would love to see you go through it entirely, but you should speed this a little at least, so that’s ppl doesn’t think that every part are the same,because I’m sure there’s enough content to show! :D
    See ya!

    Great video. The Phantom Menace parody was excellent. As for some of the inconsistencies you mentioned, though… the anti-magic field was disabled at some point during the prison break, as an announcement says. Possibly, it was before the Biggs and Wedge fight. And the keycard was probably a government standard keycard. The U.S. government now uses a standard card for all employees. Maybe the nuclear base wasn’t as high-security as one might expect. Okay, that does sound pretty lame, now that I think about it.

    THAT WAS AWESOME.

    I love this review. It shows so many flaws that I never noticed, and confirms a few I did. I hope you do show the Missile Base mission in more detail in the next episode though. Do you know that there’s an easter egg at the control panel (the one where you set the error ratio) that shows “dancing” soldiers? I think you can get a solid 30 seconds of material from that.

  • Maurox

    I’m not trying to justify it, but the garage WAS at the top of the jail I think… When you see those drills, it would be at the very top, and when the whole facility submerges, the garage opens…

    Still, now that I’m thinking about it, it IS a pretty ridiculous design… To be honest, When I played the game the first time I never noticed those things… except for Magic draw (We love this one, don’t we? XD) and the junctions which really ARE too complicated >..> I can’t wait for the Sci-Fi city part XD and for what you’re gonna come up with ;)

    Worth the wait Spoony, thanks for the fun and chuckle.

    As a few people have pointed out, the garage appears to be on top of the drill. Fine, still leaves a few bizarre questions. One, why wasn’t that locked down during a “Prison Break”. Two, why would you leave a card key to a missile silo inside of a Prison, especially one that’s used for enemies of the state (Squall and co.). And Finally, why was it right next to said missile silo?

    See, justifying one thing just drags up more absurd questions.

    As for the sketches, did you think they were funny? Yes? Then nothing to complain about. No? Then maybe these reviews are not for you. All of them gave me a chuckle, so even if it slowed it down I still get something out of it and that means more videos of Spoony in pain. Everybody wins! Well… except Spoony.

    This is gonna be showing my geekette flag a bit here, but… Hey, Insaneo? Dr. Strange was a surgeon who suffered an injury to his hands. He turned to magic as a result. There was actually a what-if where he got robotic hands or something and Dr. Doom became the Sorcerer Supreme instead. Amusingly enough, Dr. Strange actually ended up Sorcerer Supreme anyway in that, because Doom transferred himself into Strange’s body.

    Okay, maybe it’s showing my geekette flag more than a bit.

    Heh, the weapons thing is silly, but back to MGS they leave all your loaded and primed weapons right by the torture chair with one guard in the room with you who is sick

    Though, in MGS they do need you to do something for them, and they even leave a bomb in your inventory

    This review was quite good, though similar to before I think you went a little too much on the stuff that isn’t FF8, I think we get the anti-magic field, the jarring music, and the wargames stuff within about 30 seconds or so if you edit it differently

    I would probably be pleased with nothing more than you playing the game and talking over it, and occasional shots of you talking into the camera

    Thanks

    Very funny considering how long it went, I felt the pacing of jokes and review was spot on.
    My only complaint is I felt when you were pointing out the flaws in the narrative, it mostly had to do with the logic and probability of things (drill prison, paying for a card game) rather than the plot holes or pointless tangents, though you did show a lot of them as well. I think that your suspension of disbelief is a little skew considering you’re playing a game where you can summon devils or use magic to heal injuries. I feel if you let the game get away with magic and monsters, you shouldn’t be that distraught when they happen to find a truck in the desert with a security key in it.
    Still hilarious and I like the new intro. It has my favorite clip in it, the pepper.

    Everyone saying “LOL LOGIC IN A FANTASY GAME WITH FANTASY IN THE TITLE” Uh, Final Fantasy is a story driven video game. I don’t know if any of you studied on books or how to make a story, but you need to establish some basis of logic in order to make the story taken SERIOUSLY. When you have a ton of plot holes and lack of explanation for anything that Spoony has bitched about, how can you actually like this story at all?

    One of my favorite parts was noting the fake drama about disc 1’s ending. The camera angle is made to look like Squall’s mortally impaled, but when they zoom out as he falls off the float, you clearly see he’s just stabbed through the shoulder. As Spoony notes, it’s the first disc, Squall can’t possibly be dead, making the entire thing pointless.

    Honestly though, I never found Zell to be that annoying of a character- he was pretty much the only party member who wasn’t either completely retarded or a pathetic emo and not so god damn serious all the fucking time. Yeah, he’s intentionally the comedic relief, but that’s a pretty important role considering the rest of the cast is a bunch of melodramatic fucknuts.

    Sadly, all these flashbacks with Laguna and all the other tangents do come together, but how the game does it is so retarded,Spoony’s totally going to lose any will to continue after the bomb is dropped on him.

    I’ve been a long time fan, but this is my first comment: I haven’t seen a video this freaking hilarious in quite a while. The Star Wars Ep. 1 spoof was awesome, as was Selphie at the controls of a missle stockpile, and how they snuck in the base in the first place. Then again, there was a story a few months back about some kid impersonating a cop, going on patrol with a couple of officers, and actually helping to cuff a guy before he was discovered.

    Also, you make a pretty convincing mad scientist. You should have Squall’s lie about the purpose of SeeD, though (flowers!). That was easily one of the high points of the game. Anyway, awesome video, and I eagerly await the next one.

    Spoony, I doth love thee, verily, with all my heart.

    Not only do you continue what is arguably your magnum opus review series, but you have some of the best gags ever. I don’t know if I’ll ever grow tired of Dr. Insano, and the whole Ron Popeil parody was awesome. What WAS that thing that the anti-magic field generator was made out of? It looked like an air pump.

    *thumbs up* Yet another wonderful installment of your epic struggle.

    You’d be surprised how many people I’ve gotten interested in watching this because, as they all said, they quit because FF8 was bullshit. So they are quite interested both in seeing how FF8 played out and in knowing how far the shithole goes.

    Fight hard Spoony, for everlasting awesome.

    Actually, I think he’ll skip cd3 since, as far as I remember, most of it is just a bunch of retarded side quests that don’t contribute anything to the plot and cd4 isn’t really that long. Basically, the story stops at the end of cd2, then you’ve got some grind that’s meant to prepare you for the final showdown on cd4. It won’t be 23 videos then, but I might be wrong. And I agree that with all that fancy stuff it’ll take much longer to finish, but it works great. Keep it up, man

    Nice. Like others have said, dr. Insano, star wars and war games clips were too long with out good pay out. Also intro is too long and does not serve any purpose. Otherwise good job, as usual.

    I’m surprised u didnt pick on the fact that theres actually a feature on the computer allowing the guys to set the error ratio of the missiles. Why would someone program such a thing when he obviusly wants to blow up something.

    I disagree with the other who’ve said the Star Wars part had no payoff. I was rolling the entire time, and the “9999” when Qui-Gon got hit was hilarious (No, no! He’s a great Jedi Master, he can’t go down like that! Hit him with a phoenix down… please?).

    I’m a huge fan of Dr. Insano. Hopefully he stays. Awesome vid. Can’t wait to see more.

    Zell’s weapons are his fists! It’s pretty sad that sans weapons Zell is the only member of the party that can accomplish anything. That technically makes him the most badass of the group. Screw the gunblade, his fists are just as effective!

    You know the best videos you did were X-Files and The Thing. You seem to be going far too slow with the story.

    Finishing the game with a half hour video would be good.

    Star Wars part was too long and Dr Insano was funny once…

    Doing a playthrough for FF8 really doesn’t make sense. Just finish it soon people will be happy and you won’t have to play the game anymore…

    (PS I actually started playing the game on my PSP again… I wanna break the PSP during the Laguna flashbacks…)

    Your point about the junction exchange is totally correct. It’s so frustrating to have to alter the junctioning every time the party switches… I can’t count the amount of battles I’ve gotten into and my party sucks and has only the attack option.

    I’m not saying I don’t enjoy your videos because I love them but when you draw FF8 out so much it gets tiring.

    By the way Phantasmagoria rocked, and it rocked because the commentary was funny and the story was fantastic!

    … okay, I really don’t know where to start but, you really lost your humor, Noah. Your old videos were funny and entertaining, but nowadays with your FF8 Video? These videos are far from joking but insulting people which liked the game. I mean seriously. I have nothing against it that you HATE this game, but these movies are nothing else worthy as a troll could do. So, why continuing? To piss more people off? Sorry, but this is plain stupidity from a person, who hates something so much, that he has to share it with others… which is far from entertainment. You, my friend just became a naive troll. Nothing more and nothing less. Like I said, your older movies were great, but this is just ridiculous. Stop doing something which could break your neck on day.

    #122: Broken neck? Wow… That comment would be a pretty scary threat if you weren’t a Final Fantasy fan. As a fan of the series we can assume, based off pics of cosplay, that you are either a tiny man or an obese woman; either way, not too much of a threat. Unless you are the latter and you land on him from high up, I guess.

    Also, I will add that I don’t feel you lost your humor at all in this vid as hinted at by a few others. I don’t remember people getting this mad when you were doing Sewer Shark or Make My Video: it is all just the hollow criticism of the fanboys who view the game through nostalgia beer goggles. Compared to FF7 the eighth installmant was half assed.

    Your comments involving the antimagic field had me rolling. I can’t believe I hadn’t even thought of that at the time but the whole idea that a sorceress could hold the country hostage when they could just shut magic off with technology or whatever is just bad planning and worse writing. You always manage to find funny stuff I hadn’t even thought of. Keep it up.

    Jeez, some of you folkses are pretty harsh. Ok, Dr. Insano was pretty good despite going on too long, the Star Wars was a miss, but the review could have been worse. Like, it wasn’t hideous. I’ve seen the AVGNerd post much worse.

    Indeed, I thought this was the weakest of Spoony’s FF8 videos, but it had some good stuff. I t`ink it felt like he focused
    more on blasting fanboys on this one, and nitpicking trivial things about the plot (which is kinda his thang, judging from some of his movie reviews).

    I’m dus` gonna be tuning in for the next one, though.

    Anyways your stuff is by far the most entertaining. I never played FF8 (because I heard it sucked), but you have assured that I never will. I loved Doctor Insano, I thought the Star Wars reference pounded the point home (extremely well done). Just do your thing and don’t listen to any these negative comments, you are doing better than great.

    A great ninth installment. As for the oft-mentioned “anti-magic field”, the game is actually pretty bad at explaining it, but you’re supposed to gather from context that it only has any effect on “para-magic” (which is to say, magic you draw from enemies or cast by any means besides the capabilities of a Sorceress). And it’s not even completely effective at that, either. Against actual magic (which the game’s database claims is only usable by Sorceresses), it’d be totally useless.

    Doesn’t make it any less ridiculous, of course. Or any more obtuse in trying to figure that out. It just means that the game has an official explanation, but you have to dig way too deep to figure it out. I only ever bothered because it was such a glaring plothole on the surface. And it’s still a glaring plothole since you can use magic just fine during fights where the field is still present without any reduction in effectiveness.

    Holy crap! I noticed many inconsistencies during the two times I played through FF8, but not nearly as many as Spoony. I daresay it may have more contradictions and inconsistencies and lame plot devices than FF7. I hope the FF8 fanboys realize how much stuff they have to overlook to actually like this game.

    So, Squall was apparently stabbed through the chest or shoulder or something at the end of disc 1, and his clothes aren’t even ripped! Oh, but the stuff with the Laguna flashbacks and Julia being Rinoa’s mother does make sense eventually, but you have wait until almost the end of the game, and you have to make a whole bunch of assumptions about Squall and Laguna.

    I think you hit the nail on the head with this one. Goddamned nonsensical tripe… those writers/programmers should be ashamed. Aside from that, your parodies and music selection (especially the game show themes) were spot-on and thoroughly entertaining. Good times are to be had anytime Dr. Insano makes an appearance, I think.

    Also, too bad about the blemish. You make it work though, you beast.

    Hahahahahaha! Another spectacularly funny review. I think the Kiros boy or girl thing was unneeded, but the rest of the review made up for it. Especially the reappearance of Dr. Isano (how could the Discovery channel not give you your own show? How?), the use of “The Phantom Menace” to illustrate the jarring transitions, the succulent blowjob, and best of all, the rant about the drill prison and the “War Games” homage at the end. That last part was especially epic, as it’s one of my favorite movies.

    Please, for the love of God ream the whole thing when you get to the Garden and have to run around looking for Cid as long and hard as possible. I hated that fucking part so very, very much. Like this game raped Sense and Good Gameplay and then shanked them, leaving their cooling bodies in a back alley… Well… Do the verbal equivalent to this game, okay? Thank you.

    My favorite part had to be when Squall swooped down from above to save Zell, even though he’s supposed to be far below.

    I’m guessing the people at Square didn’t think that thru.

    The only thing I didn’t like was the Star Wars clip, like others I think it kinda went on too long and didn’t quite “pay off”, though I’ll admit the “9999” and the fanfare at the end was nice.

    I made the mistake of playing FF7 as my first FF game, so for the longest time I was one of those people who thought it was literally the best game evar, and I used to piss everyone off at school because it was all I ever talked about. FF8 was exciting at first, mainly because it looked like a huge improvement visually (I hated those chibi Pop-Eye characters out of combat), but I wasn’t as enthused about it as I had been about 7 and I don’t recall ever actually finishing the game, the last thing I remember is the Ragnarok spaceship or whatever. And thanks to these reviews, now I know why.

    Junctioning was especially complicated for me as a kid, the materia system was cool in FF7 and I had it down (it also made sense, you stick the little green ball in your sword, case closed), but junctioning? I had no idea what I was doing or how the hell it was even supposed to work, and I know I wasn’t clever enough to quadruple hit-points or get crazy attacks, that’s for sure. I think I gave up on it and tried to play the game without drawing or junctioning but apparently I never actually finished it.

    McFLY!

    Another great video. The FF8s are all awesome.

    Though I am surprised you didn’t make more fun of the fact that the missile controls had an error ratio controller in the first place. Why would they ever build in a setting that made the missiles deliberately less accurate?

    I can just see it now… “Precision strike? Where’s the fun in that? Set the error ratio to 50%, I want to be *surprised* if we hit our target!”

    I liked the Star Wars scene because it drove home exactly what you were saying about the music – it wasn’t just funny, it was painful – and that -made- it funny. As for the people who are saying you can’t take logic to fantasy, come on. You at least have to -try- to tie things together into a consistent framework. This game is just a quagmire of asspulls that only the worst epileptic trees can make any sense of.

    Also, he’s not hating on Selfie, he’s hating on the storyline that put -her- of all people in the lead. They probably thought they were being cute, but this game can’t seem to figure out whether or not to take itself seriously.

    Please, PLEASE make more videos regarding this game. It is horrible. Logical thinking is important in all things, even in a work of fiction. Just because something is intended as a fantasy story doesn’t mean that logic isn’t a concern. Things must make sense, especially in regards to the universe developed in the game/movie. The magic shield is a major discrepancy. Things like that bother intelligent people who demand that things make sense within the rules of the fictional world they are trying to enjoy and understand. Fantasy, especially, has to work harder to make sure their ‘rules’ are logical within the boundaries of their story telling. IJ:Crystal skull is another example of fictional logic being totally raped. Intelligent people DO care, the uncaring and ignorant won’t. In the end, logical storytelling/details are what separates the OK from the great.

    Hey you really did a good job of pointing out the inconsistencies and sheer stupidity of most of the things on the beginning of disc 2 here. You asked a lot of the same questions that I did on my first couple of playthroughs of this game. In fact, I think there’s only two questions I always had about this part of the game that you didn’t ask. Number one, why the hell didn’t Zell realize that he doesn’t use a real weapon earlier? I mean, he gets the crap knocked out of him a couple of times before their escape. And during the escape, all he does is punch someone in the stomach, KNOCKING THEM OUT. With a punch to the freakin stomach!

    Number two, why the hell would you even have an error ratio for your ICBM missles?What kind of purpose does that serve? I think that’s the thing that always bugged me the most. You have a damn missle base in the middle of a desert that you use to launch attacks against your enemies, but you program in the ablility to raise the error ratio? WHY? Isn’t the point of launching the missles to….oh, I dunno, hit what you’re aiming at with the damn missles? Do they use it for some sort of betting game on the weekends?

    “Ok, so here’s the deal.. we’ll just set the error ratio up to maximum and fire at this town today. Everyone place your bets as to whether or not we hit them. Odds are about 10 to 1, so there’s some big money to be won here..”
    Seriously, wtf? lol

    Great review though. I know you don’t like playing the game, but I’ve watched all of the reviews so far and they’re quite good. In fact, that’s what led me to your site. I saw the final fantasy reviews on that guy with the glasses’ website. I was sitting around the house with nothing to do one day and decided to visit your website..

    And now I’ve watched every review of FMV hell (Including the Terror Trax and every single minute of phantasmagoria), all your SWAT 4 vids, and all of the FF8 vids..I’m even on the forums while I’m at work. lol. You do a good job and I enjoy watching your stuff. As long as you keep making them, I’ll keep watching them. Keep up the good work.

    You realize the ‘random desert garage’ was the top of the drill prison after it had buried itself right? I’m not trying to defend the game or anything, because most of it’s logic is pretty fucked up, but that bit does make sense ;)

    Other than that, really, really good stuff.

    “Why is there a garage just standing here in the middle of the desert?”

    Well, I think that the garage is the top of one of the drills. So it’s part of the prison. Still stupidly convenient, but whatever.

    Also, they do explain what Moombas are, but you have to go to a certain village later on. Moombas are the evolved form of the village inhabitants.

  • Yeah. Oh Yeah.

    This made my day. :) Really, when I found that you continued your review, I felt like I saw God descending on earth. And I don’t believe in God, so boy was I shocked! And happy. Long life, You the Incredible You.
    P.S. : for me, the best part was the Star Wars parody with the music from the game. Laughed so hard that almost felt down from my chair. This leaves me waiting for more!

  • Yeah. Oh Yeah.

    Man i LOVE your reviews Spoony, Keep up the good work!

    I can’t wait until you get to the part that ties the Laguna and Squall parts together, its going to drive you almost to the point of suicide for how insane that was. I was about 15 when i played through it and even then that part pissed me the hell off. I still had some fun with the battle system, but as you pointed out here that switching the junctioning crap over and over was incredibly tedious.

    I just thought of something! If you should ever reach the halfway point of the game (e.g. the end of the second disc), you can call CJ Collins over to guest-star as Kefka and have him rant about Squall!

  • Gh0st

    I love how everyone who says anything criticizing about the video is automatically a stupid fanboy who goes to cosplays. Seriously, way to ignore the good points about the discrepancies with this video guys, class act.

    Oh boy… where do I even START?

    First off, you’re seriously complaining about the fact that there are giant caterpillars? NOW? I mean, they were one of the first enemies in the game, granted they were in a forest instead of a city… but it’s an RPG. Monster placement doesn’t have to make absolute sense, monsters are invading the city and you have to partrol it. Very simple concept, and yet can be picked on by the CLAIRVOYANT WIT THAT IS SPOONY! A giant caterpillar enemy? Quite ridiculous! What will they come up with next, possibly some kind of… horse like bird that people use in races? Preposterous!

    Next off, I’ll admit that Kiros’ wardrobe is a bit… weird. But come on now, you’d have to be mentally impaired, or have missed 90% of the dialogue from the first few Laguna scenes to ever think it wasn’t a guy. Also, i’m sorry to say this, but… the “Boy or Girl” bit, especially the way you were trying to dissect the situation, was a direct LIFT from the Nostalgia Critics segment by the exact same name in his Nickcom review. Seriously, you just used different music.

    Dr. Insano was funny as a one time character, and never again. I have no idea why he’s blown up like he’ll be the next big thing, he’s not that funny.

    An Anti-Magic field… well, after reading through previous comments, I can say with confidence people already caught you on this one. It’s a Final Fantasy game, they can have Anti-Magic fields if they want to. Why not? Do you need some kind of deep physics explanation on the invention of all these things? God, they had Anti-Magic fields in most FF games up to this point, in one form or another.

    I find it kinda funny that you say there’s not a single scene in this game you can’t bitch about, because for me there’s pretty much not a single point in this review that’s correct or apt in any way.

    A drill prison in the middle of the desert… Well, it’s convenient first off. Much like Alkatraz, it’s almost impossible to escape from without a car or anything… and actually a similar concept was used in FF7. The point of it drilling underground would no doubt happen during a state of lockdown, which, lo and behold, happens once you break out. Also, the garage is in the top of the drill, as everyone else said. I mean, how else are you planning on getting to a giant prison in the middle of the desert? Walk?

    And finally we come to the end of the review. Well, having a keycard in a military car that unlocks that door isn’t as unlikely as you’d think. There are probably universal military clearance cards of varying levels, and since the desert prison guards probably have a fairly high level of access, it’s not too weird that they should have matching keycards. And now, we actually come to the… can it be? ONE good point during the entire review? Wow, i feel excited!

    Yes, Selphie taking control of the giant missile silo, best idea EVER. I also like how it ended with the War Games clip, although I really found the ICBM bit to be one of the most fun of the game. Anyways, that’s the one point in the review where I laughed. The rest…. ugh.

    Look, it’s like I said before, I’m a huge fan of your other reviews and works. All the Sega CD games you did were priceless, and Phantasmagoria has to take the cake as my all time favorite. Every joke was extremely funny, all the points were well-made, and you even got some good running jokes out of it. Seriously, I love the stuff you review, but the FFVIII reviews ALWAYS bothered me. Not because I’m a huge fan of the game, I just feel it was pretty mediocre all in all. But that’s the problem, there are so many profoundly BAD games out there, so why need to pick on a mediocre one? Because you think it’s fun trolling all the Final Fantasy fanboys who get angry about it?

    It’s not so much WHAT you’re reviewing as HOW you’re reviewing it. If you built your review around nothing but good points, sure it would make the game seem a hell of alot worse than it is because the bad points are fairly spaced out during it, but it would be WAY better constructed than trying to point out nothing but bad stuff, but making yourself look stupid in the process by missing these things, or picking on insignificant points. The first few FFVIII videos had good points, but now… you’re running on empty. There comes a time where you have to admit “Do I want to work on this? Or do my FANS want me to work on this?”. And certainly, I think it’s because the fans won’t leave you alone.

    Drop FFVIII, start something new and focus on that for a while. These 20 minute videos of dry humor and poorly thought out points aren’t benefiting anyone who doesn’t have wet dreams of you every night.

    Do I have any right to tell you or force you what to do? No. But I think I have just as much right as anyone commenting here commending this video to comment on why this video is not quality work. Like I said Spoony, you’re a great reviewer, possibly even one of the best. But you’re stuck with weak source material here.

    In relation to the anti-magic field: I think he was more mocking the fact that they are never mentioned yet seem to be the first thought into the heads of the leads. and that if they are in fact common knowledge then why is the sorceress a problem if they can set up anti magic fields.

    Particularly if its possible to localize it to the degree it is in the video

    That’s so hilarious lol!

    And you FF8 fanboy retards, the game is terribad. Stop thinking it’s good. You can’t even acknowledge when he’s right about the failure of the anti-magic field and how it basically does make the sorceress useless as well a terrible plot device for that one thing but amazingly enough it’s not working during the rest of the prison break? Lame lol.

    Face it, the game was bad, you’re a fanboy, and you’re stupid.

    Great review, can’t wait for more!

    Love the review, but I disagree about the prison. We have a lot of prisoners, and not enough space. So either we build skyscraper prisons, or we start building underground.
    As for funding, its called the private sector.
    Although their are dumb enough politicians who can be convinced/bribed/blackmailed to provide some funding for this endevor

    Yeah, that’s true to a point. Really though, even though they don’t go into too much explanation about it, it’s my understanding that the reason there’s an anti-magic field in the jail cells and not in the whole prison is probably an issue of concentration. IE, the anti-magic field can only cover a very small patch of space, hence why it wasn’t outside the jail cells, and also hence why they couldn’t use it against the Sorceress.

    That’s just a hunch though, since they never explain it. And thanks Gauph.

    [i]“An Anti-Magic field… well, after reading through previous comments, I can say with confidence people already caught you on this one. It’s a Final Fantasy game, they can have Anti-Magic fields if they want to. Why not? Do you need some kind of deep physics explanation on the invention of all these things? God, they had Anti-Magic fields in most FF games up to this point, in one form or another. “[/i]

    Well he did bring up a good point. If anti-magic fields are in use, to the point where they can completely negate magic, why is the sorcerous such a huge threat? I mean, the story is pretty clear that she came to power due to her magic. And since they suspect she can die from a bullet wound, why hasn’t anyone got a pop at her yet? Either the SEED forces are morons (for trying to kill her with a bullet), or the inhabits of FFVIII world are morons for not getting a shot at her yet. How could a dictator so hated go in public and not be popped off, in a world where guns are a commonplace? I guess it has happened in the past, but even evil meglomaniacs had followers and guards. She just goes off in public with zero protection, upon throngs of people that should loathe her (don’t know why anyone would cheer for her), and doesn’t get shot? C’mon, even in a fantasy world that is far-fetched.

    “A drill prison in the middle of the desert… Well, it’s convenient first off. Much like Alkatraz, it’s almost impossible to escape from without a car or anything… and actually a similar concept was used in FF7. The point of it drilling underground would no doubt happen during a state of lockdown, which, lo and behold, happens once you break out. Also, the garage is in the top of the drill, as everyone else said. I mean, how else are you planning on getting to a giant prison in the middle of the desert? Walk?”

    Because it isn’t very cost-effective? Funny that you brought up Alcatraz, because you can pretty much have nearly the same amount of protection from escape with like .0001% the cost. How many people escape from prison to warrent a giant drill prison? Why does it need to surface that high? How much does it take to make a drill prison? (we don’t even have that technology now?) Why would you need to make one? Wouldn’t an underground prison with one exit guarded by a steal gate be just as effective, and far cheaper?

    Also, to have maximum protection while surfacing, should they leave the entrance to the drill prison at its highest point, then only surfacing only a fraction of the prison? Or better yet, just make an underground prison, where the entrance can be sealed and covered in dirt in case of a lockdown. That would make more sense, and be more plausible. I mention cost-effectiveness because that is the basis for when people design things, otherwise we would buy off all small islands and put all of our prisons there, or make prisons out of ships and have them sail away from land. They offer the best security against escape, but why don’t we make them? Because they would be too damn expensive. Same logic goes to making a drill prison. It just makes no sense when you can do the same amount of work more efficiently.

    love how you rant about the silly anmeness about this. Though you sould really point out that its been done before, becuase it has….the flash back thing. lol

    also thought the jokes involving other things besides the game….were a teeny weeny bit drawn out as far as imconcerned. Were you trying to avoide the game hmm? lol

    “First off, you’re seriously complaining about the fact that there are giant caterpillars? NOW?”

    That’s it? You’re peeved just because Spoony is complaining about the giant caterpillars now as opposed to three or four videos ago? Weak.

    “Also, i’m sorry to say this, but… the “Boy or Girl” bit, especially the way you were trying to dissect the situation, was a direct LIFT from the Nostalgia Critics segment by the exact same name in his Nickcom review.”

    I don’t remember you complaining when he borrowed “I AM A MAY-UN!” from Linkara.

    “An Anti-Magic field… well, after reading through previous comments, I can say with confidence people already caught you on this one. It’s a Final Fantasy game, they can have Anti-Magic fields if they want to. Why not?”

    Do me a favor and look up “deus ex machina” and “asspull” on tvtropes.com.

    “A drill prison in the middle of the desert… Well, it’s convenient first off.”

    What?! No it isn’t, you ‘tard!

    First of all, a desert is MUCH easier to cross than a large body of water. There are entire cultures that cross deserts every day. Second, a building that drills into the ground is the dumbest idea in history. If you want an underground prison, there’s nothing stopping you from building a prison underground. There is no reason why ANY building should be contained inside giant drills that can tunnel down into the Earth and back out again. If you want to lock down a prison, all you have to do is lock down the prison. Drilling it into the ground until lockdown ends is just stupid. The entire concept of a drill-prison is a massive waste of time, money, and resources.

    “Well, having a keycard in a military car that unlocks that door isn’t as unlikely as you’d think. There are probably universal military clearance cards of varying levels, and since the desert prison guards probably have a fairly high level of access, it’s not too weird that they should have matching keycards.”

    It is when the keycards go to a nuclear missile silo. Seriously, are you even hearing yourself? A universal keycard that unlocks a nuclear missile silo?! And why would prison guards be given “a fairly high level of access”? Do you think real-life MPs get access to highly classified stuff like nuclear missile silos? Prison guards guard the prison. That’s it. That’s all they’re trained to do, that’s all they’re paid to do, and that’s all they’re authorized to do. No competent military organization would give prison guards free access to weapons of mass destruction.

    And no, the military does not use “universal clearance cards”. Ever. Even if there was a military prison that used electronic keycards (and I highly doubt that there are) they would not work outside of that particular facility.

    There are “levels of access” where people of a certain clearance level are granted access to certain types of classified information, but those are reserved for high-ranking officers and officials, not rank-and-file prison guards.

    There are a lot of interesting questions to be asked about this game, but just keep in mind that any answers to them will be complete fanfiction.
    We can make up justifications for its oddness and shortcomings until we’re blue in the face but there’s no point. It was the responsibility of the game (that is, the game developer) to make sure everything in this fantasy world logically fit together.
    It’s like reading a really poorly written story.
    This game, an item in Square’s flagship series no less, just throws out a bunch of nonsense and never backs it up, not even with its own brand of fantasy logic. There’s just nothing there.

    It doesn’t even bother.

    Phooey.

    “That’s it? You’re peeved just because Spoony is complaining about the giant caterpillars now as opposed to three or four videos ago? Weak.”

    Well, if you read on, I also went on to say the enemy placement in RPG’s is not important. There have been far weirder things in weirder places in alot of other RPG’s, Final Fantasy itself just to name a few, not to mention the ever ambiguous Slimes from DragonQuest that appear in grassy regions for some reason.

    “I don’t remember you complaining when he borrowed “I AM A MAY-UN!” from Linkara.”

    A one liner can be seen more as an homage. An entire joke taken pretty much directly is not an homage, it’s a lift. Even if That Guy gave him permission to use it, it’s still a bit lame because it’s That Guy’s humor, not Spoony’s. Which i see no reason for, Spoony has alot of great humor by himself. He doesn’t need to lift jokes.

    “Do me a favor and look up “deus ex machina” and “asspull” on tvtropes.com.”
    Thank you, I already know what a Deus Ex Machina is. Yes, it appears to be a pretty immediate obstacle just to prevent them from busting out right then, but you can take certain liberties with the RPG genre, particularly the Final Fantasy series. I could probably make a 2 page long list of every Deus Ex used in RPG’s… there’s alot. No reason to pick on this small one, at least they aren’t ending the game with a Deus Ex.

    “What?! No it isn’t, you ‘tard!

    First of all, a desert is MUCH easier to cross than a large body of water. There are entire cultures that cross deserts every day.”

    Yes, and i’m sure they cross these deserts with no water, no shade, and no other equipment. This is a notoriously bad idea, considering they never really let us know how big or wide the desert they happen to be stranded in is.

    “Second, a building that drills into the ground is the dumbest idea in history. If you want an underground prison, there’s nothing stopping you from building a prison underground. There is no reason why ANY building should be contained inside giant drills that can tunnel down into the Earth and back out again.”

    Well… Yes and no. It depends on what the giant drills really DO. This is a part of the game I really wish they elaborated on more, considering alot of information isn’t really given here. But if Final Fantasy 6 and its sinking castles are any indication, who knows? Maybe they sink the prison and move it around every now and again to disorient people who would be planning on breaking out? I don’t think there’s a really clear cut answer on this one.

    Word of warning: First post into an argument should not have Ad Hominems in them. Now that I have that out of the way, I’ll continue.

    Well I’m not sure. Do you live in Galbadia? Are you aware of Galbadian Military Operations and Requirements? Please enlighten me, because I’d LOVE to know. Honestly, why are you acting like the Galbadian Military is somehow an offshoot of the United States Military? They’re completely different, they’ve already been shown to operate differently. How do you know what kind of keycard system they use? They could be like Shinra and have keycards for every level of their office buildings for god sakes, who knows? Picking on things like this in the first place because they’re “unrealistic” is stupid, because the armies in this game are not subsidiaries of armies and governments in real life.

    Yes, certainly liberties must be taken with these things, such as humans should act like logical humans unless otherwise stated in the game. But when you’re given government… what would anyone define as a logical government or logical military control? Sure, it’s shoddy control, but somehow I highly doubt that the Sorceress is keeping very tight regulations after killing off the President. For all we know, the Sorceress was intending all this shit to happen beforehand so that Squall plays into her trap. That’s the problem with FFVIII; you can carry away more interpretations of it than you can of the Bible, since it unfortunately never stops to explain anything. I can kinda see why they did it after all, because if they had to explain all this crap it would be a 6 disc game. But on the other hand, it holds the plot and feel of the game back, making it an at best mediocre Final Fantasy game. I’ve said this ALREADY.

    But picking on it for not being realistic is a dumb complaint, and you know it. This is the world of Final Fantasy, and as long as there is a feasible explanation for anything that can be made, it’s allowed to be part of the game. And hell, while i’m at it, I’ll ask you some thought questions too. In Super Mario Bros., why can Mario jump so damn high? He’s just a normal plumber after all, who went into the Mushroom Kingdom by accident. And yet he can jump 20 feet in the air? What about in Megaman X? How is it even possible for Sigma to survive having his program erased at the end of X3? Hell, what about in Final Fantasy 6? How does a sinking castle even FUNCTION, let alone cross through several continents and end up at another part of the world? Multiple theories can be made for all of these things, but they’re never directly explained. Want to pick on all of them too?

    They’re games. Not everything about them can or needs to be explained. If you want a game with total real life logic, play Sim’s. Which is still pretty ridiculous in certain aspects anyways. On a final note of this post though, and I hope you read to this point, I will say this: Final Fantasy 8 has plotholes up the wazoo, this I will not deny. But he’s picking on the small stuff, not the big stuff. (well, truth be told, I forgot something in my first post. He actually was spot on near the start when he says none of it will really be explained about Laguna and…. yeah….)

    “That’s it? You’re peeved just because Spoony is complaining about the giant caterpillars now as opposed to three or four videos ago? Weak.”

    Well, if you read on, I also went on to say the enemy placement in RPG’s is not important. There have been far weirder things in weirder places in alot of other RPG’s, Final Fantasy itself just to name a few, not to mention the ever ambiguous Slimes from DragonQuest that appear in grassy regions for some reason.

    “I don’t remember you complaining when he borrowed “I AM A MAY-UN!” from Linkara.”

    A one liner can be seen more as an homage. An entire joke taken pretty much directly is not an homage, it’s a lift. Even if That Guy gave him permission to use it, it’s still a bit lame because it’s That Guy’s humor, not Spoony’s. Which i see no reason for, Spoony has alot of great humor by himself. He doesn’t need to lift jokes.

    “Do me a favor and look up “deus ex machina” and “asspull” on tvtropes.com.”
    Thank you, I already know what a Deus Ex Machina is. Yes, it appears to be a pretty immediate obstacle just to prevent them from busting out right then, but you can take certain liberties with the RPG genre, particularly the Final Fantasy series. I could probably make a 2 page long list of every Deus Ex used in RPG’s… there’s alot. No reason to pick on this small one, at least they aren’t ending the game with a Deus Ex.

    “What?! No it isn’t, you ‘tard!

    First of all, a desert is MUCH easier to cross than a large body of water. There are entire cultures that cross deserts every day.”

    Yes, and i’m sure they cross these deserts with no water, no shade, and no other equipment. This is a notoriously bad idea, considering they never really let us know how big or wide the desert they happen to be stranded in is.

    “Second, a building that drills into the ground is the dumbest idea in history. If you want an underground prison, there’s nothing stopping you from building a prison underground. There is no reason why ANY building should be contained inside giant drills that can tunnel down into the Earth and back out again.”

    Well… Yes and no. It depends on what the giant drills really DO. This is a part of the game I really wish they elaborated on more, considering alot of information isn’t really given here. But if Final Fantasy 6 and its sinking castles are any indication, who knows? Maybe they sink the prison and move it around every now and again to disorient people who would be planning on breaking out? I don’t think there’s a really clear cut answer on this one.

    Word of warning: First post into an argument should not have Ad Hominems in them. Now that I have that out of the way, I’ll continue.

    “It is when the keycards go to a nuclear missile silo. Seriously, are you even hearing yourself? A universal keycard that unlocks a nuclear missile silo?! And why would prison guards be given “a fairly high level of access”? Do you think real-life MPs get access to highly classified stuff like nuclear missile silos? Prison guards guard the prison. That’s it. That’s all they’re trained to do, that’s all they’re paid to do, and that’s all they’re authorized to do. No competent military organization would give prison guards free access to weapons of mass destruction.”

    Well I’m not sure. Do you live in Galbadia? Are you aware of Galbadian Military Operations and Requirements? Please enlighten me, because I’d LOVE to know. Honestly, why are you acting like the Galbadian Military is somehow an offshoot of the United States Military? They’re completely different, they’ve already been shown to operate differently. How do you know what kind of keycard system they use? They could be like Shinra and have keycards for every level of their office buildings for god sakes, who knows?

    Spoony Fanboys? Maybe…

    If the point of these videos is to make people laugh…well I think we’re all getting duped by an unwitting duper in a circle of utter dupage, everyone yelling at one another. I liked ff8 mucho. I think these reviews are mad funny. I can laugh at them but still enjoy the game.

    Well, if you read on, I also went on to say the enemy placement in RPG’s is not important.

    Actually yeah, it is. Putting giant caterpillars in the middle of a city is just dumb. In fact, the entire concept of random encounters in a city is dumb. I can’t think of a single other RPG that does that other than FF8.

    A one liner can be seen more as an homage.

    So that’s your criteria? If you borrow a joke that’s only one line long, it’s an homage, but if you borrow a joke that’s several lines long, it’s “a lift”?

    How does that work, exactly?

    Thank you, I already know what a Deus Ex Machina is. Yes, it appears to be a pretty immediate obstacle just to prevent them from busting out right then, but you can take certain liberties with the RPG genre, particularly the Final Fantasy series.

    Sure, you can do whatever you want. But just because you can do it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea and it doesn’t mean it makes any sense.

    I can insert a deus ex machina into any damn thing I want. That doesn’t make it a good thing.

    Well… Yes and no. It depends on what the giant drills really DO.

    Um, no, it doesn’t. The giant drills serve no useful purpose. A simple underground prison complex would perform the exact same function at a fraction of the cost and be far less complicated to build and maintain.

    Face it. The giant drill prison was a stupid idea.

    Maybe they sink the prison and move it around every now and again to disorient people who would be planning on breaking out?

    Or you could just block out all the windows so the prisoners can’t see outside the prison. Yet again, the exact same function at a fraction of the cost and far less complicated.

    Well I’m not sure. Do you live in Galbadia? Are you aware of Galbadian Military Operations and Requirements? Please enlighten me, because I’d LOVE to know. Honestly, why are you acting like the Galbadian Military is somehow an offshoot of the United States Military? They’re completely different, they’ve already been shown to operate differently.

    I’m sorry, but exactly what part of “no competent military organization would give prison guards access to weapons of mass destruction” didn’t you understand?

    I wasn’t comparing the Galbadian military to the US military. I was using common sense to show that your argument is ludicrous. Once again, NO competent military organization would EVER give prison guards free access to weapons of mass destruction. I defy you to find a single real-life example from any country on Earth of military prison guards being given access to WMDs. You won’t find any, because it just doesn’t happen.

    How do you know what kind of keycard system they use? They could be like Shinra and have keycards for every level of their office buildings for god sakes, who knows? Picking on things like this in the first place because they’re “unrealistic” is stupid, because the armies in this game are not subsidiaries of armies and governments in real life.

    So it’s okay for the game designers to throw common sense and basic logic completely out the window because “it’s not real life”? I ask again, are you even hearing yourself?

    Either the Galbadian military is staffed from top to bottom with raging incompetents or the designers of FF8 had their heads up their asses when they made this game.

    But picking on it for not being realistic is a dumb complaint, and you know it.

    I’m not picking on the game for being unrealistic. I’m picking on it for making no Goddamn sense and being completely ridiculous.

    At least Super Mario Bros. doesn’t pretend to place itself in a semi-realistic environment or a serious story. Super Mario Bros. is the video game equivalent of Looney Toons. FF8 is the video game equivalent of Eragon.

    Well, if you read on, I also went on to say the enemy placement in RPG’s is not important.

    Actually yeah, it is. Putting giant caterpillars in the middle of a city is just dumb. In fact, the entire concept of random encounters in a city is dumb. I can’t think of a single other RPG that does that other than FF8.

    A one liner can be seen more as an homage.

    So that’s your criteria? If you borrow a joke that’s only one line long, it’s an homage, but if you borrow a joke that’s several lines long, it’s “a lift”?

    How does that work, exactly?

    Thank you, I already know what a Deus Ex Machina is. Yes, it appears to be a pretty immediate obstacle just to prevent them from busting out right then, but you can take certain liberties with the RPG genre, particularly the Final Fantasy series.

    Sure, you can do whatever you want. But just because you can do it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea and it doesn’t mean it makes any sense.

    I can insert a deus ex machina into any damn thing I want. That doesn’t make it a good thing.

    Well… Yes and no. It depends on what the giant drills really DO.

    Um, no, it doesn’t. The giant drills serve no useful purpose. A simple underground prison complex would perform the exact same function at a fraction of the cost and be far less complicated to build and maintain.

    Face it. The giant drill prison was a stupid idea.

    Maybe they sink the prison and move it around every now and again to disorient people who would be planning on breaking out?

    Or you could just block out all the windows so the prisoners can’t see outside the prison. Yet again, the exact same function at a fraction of the cost and far less complicated.

    Well I’m not sure. Do you live in Galbadia? Are you aware of Galbadian Military Operations and Requirements? Please enlighten me, because I’d LOVE to know. Honestly, why are you acting like the Galbadian Military is somehow an offshoot of the United States Military? They’re completely different, they’ve already been shown to operate differently.

    I’m sorry, but exactly what part of “no competent military organization would give prison guards access to weapons of mass destruction” didn’t you understand?

    I wasn’t comparing the Galbadian military to the US military. I was using common sense to show that your argument is ludicrous. Once again, NO competent military organization would EVER give prison guards free access to weapons of mass destruction. I defy you to find a single real-life example from any country on Earth of military prison guards being given access to WMDs. You won’t find any, because it just doesn’t happen.

    How do you know what kind of keycard system they use? They could be like Shinra and have keycards for every level of their office buildings for god sakes, who knows? Picking on things like this in the first place because they’re “unrealistic” is stupid, because the armies in this game are not subsidiaries of armies and governments in real life.

    So it’s okay for the game designers to throw common sense and basic logic completely out the window because “it’s not real life”? I ask again, are you even hearing yourself?

    Either the Galbadian military is staffed from top to bottom with raging incompetents or the designers of FF8 had their heads up their asses when they made this game.

    I’m sure he and others would be far more willing to consider your point of view if you’d stop insulting him for no apparent reason other than that you disagree.
    I do tend to agree with your points in any case.
    Sure, not every little question need be answered, but if a fantasy game creates its own rules and logic, establishing its own little “universe”, it needs to set it up so that there is some level of understanding between the game and the player.
    And it just feels like the game does a genuinely awful job at this.

    I think maybe the only good thing I take away from this game is the music.
    I love video game music. <3

    I’ll keep going if you will, but since it seems you can’t refrain from Ad Hominems during an argument, I’ll stop trying to be as civilized with the whole thing.

    “Actually yeah, it is. Putting giant caterpillars in the middle of a city is just dumb. In fact, the entire concept of random encounters in a city is dumb. I can’t think of a single other RPG that does that other than FF8.”
    Final Fantasy 6. Zozo. Or how about Final Fantasy 7, Midgar? Or how about Final Fantasy 9, Burmecia (I probably spelled that wrong, but whatever)? Think before you say FFVIII is the only RPG that does this.

    “So that’s your criteria? If you borrow a joke that’s only one line long, it’s an homage, but if you borrow a joke that’s several lines long, it’s “a lift”?”

    Well that depends. Do you think the Irate Gamer is an homage to the Angry Video Game Nerd? Ok, I’m gonna get flamed for that one, but it’s the closest example I can come up with. It’s not borrowing of a single catch-phrase, that can be seen as an homage. It’s a lift of the humor, with effort made to change the music used and everything, not like it’s hard to get the Jeopardy music anyways. Again, I wanna say that I’m not bashing Spoony or his humor in any way, I personally like some of his stuff better than That Guy’s. But this one thing bothers me.

    “Sure, you can do whatever you want. But just because you can do it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea and it doesn’t mean it makes any sense.”

    Live with it kid, there’s Deus Ex’s in almost every plot here and there. And just so you don’t respond with “Not in any GOOD plot”, I’ll ask you to name one that isn’t a book, and completely free of any Deus Ex. Particularly an RPG, since that’s what we’re on the subject of here.

    “Or you could just block out all the windows so the prisoners can’t see outside the prison. Yet again, the exact same function at a fraction of the cost and far less complicated.”

    Or it could be a Fantasy game, where the more ridiculous and artistic something is, the better. See FF6 Moving Castle reference, see the construction of several complexes in Final Fantasy 7, most notably with Midgar. Hell, see pretty much ALL of Final Fantasy 9. The point of the games isn’t real life efficiency, it’s stunning artwork and creativity to bring you into a parallel world where everything is more fantastic and overdone. I’d like to just remind you Final Fantasy does not operate completely within bounds of usual logic (see Final Fantasy 4, and being able to walk on the moon with no space equipment at all).

    “I’m sorry, but exactly what part of “no competent military organization would give prison guards access to weapons of mass destruction” didn’t you understand?”

    The part where you don’t know who the truck belongs to. For all you know, it could have been some level of higher commander visiting the Prison base to see that everything is kept up to standards. After all, Seifer, the Queens Knight, is there. Biggs and Wedge, if i remember right, are there. And they were pretty much the technicians of Galbadia given their fixing of a satellite tower and construction of giant mechanical spider. Would it be any more logical if Quistis suddenly became a computer expert, and hacked into the door to open it ala Final Fantasy 7? Or would you rather fight some kind of large monster and pick the key off them like in most every other RPG? At least this one kinda offers a competent solution to the first key problem.

    “So it’s okay for the game designers to throw common sense and basic logic completely out the window because “it’s not real life”? I ask again, are you even hearing yourself?”

    I’ll say this again: There are too many unknowns for you to talk about this like it lacks common sense. Does it lack proper explanation? Yeah, but I don’t really dwell on it that much. Once again, for all we know the truck belonged to some higher ups who went to check in on the prison. Inspectors, particularly technicians, would likely have the kind of access to a silo like that. Especially if it actually was Biggs and Wedges truck, since they seem to be pretty much the top 2 engineers of the whole place. The point is, certain assumptions would have to be made to say it makes no sense.

    “At least Super Mario Bros. doesn’t pretend to place itself in a semi-realistic environment or a serious story. Super Mario Bros. is the video game equivalent of Looney Toons. FF8 is the video game equivalent of Eragon.”

    But what about any of the other games I listed there? Especially Final Fantasy 6’s moving castle, a game that I have suspicions that Spoony likes from his FFVII review? The Megaman X series had a certain level of futuristic realism to it as well, so why that? This is the smallest and most insignificant of nitpicking ever, and there isn’t even good evidence to back any of this up. I can name you DOZENS of good games that have bigger plotholes than that, and I can even name alot of other points in THIS game that have worse plotholes, so it seems very weird to make such a big deal out of a simple KEYCARD found in the back of a truck. It would have made literally no gameplay difference at all if you would have just ran down some Scientists and stole their card. I just don’t see the point of making such a large deal about such a small plot element.

    Also, Eragon was a bad mashup/ripoff of about 4 different movies. At least FFVIII made attempts to be unique.

    Final Fantasy 6. Zozo. Or how about Final Fantasy 7, Midgar? Or how about Final Fantasy 9, Burmecia (I probably spelled that wrong, but whatever)? Think before you say FFVIII is the only RPG that does this.

    “So that’s your criteria? If you borrow a joke that’s only one line long, it’s an homage, but if you borrow a joke that’s several lines long, it’s “a lift”?”

    Well that depends. Do you think the Irate Gamer is an homage to the Angry Video Game Nerd? Ok, I’m gonna get flamed for that one, but it’s the closest example I can come up with. It’s not borrowing of a single catch-phrase, that can be seen as an homage. It’s a lift of the humor, with effort made to change the music used and everything, not like it’s hard to get the Jeopardy music anyways. Again, I wanna say that I’m not bashing Spoony or his humor in any way, I personally like some of his stuff better than That Guy’s. But this one thing bothers me.

    “Sure, you can do whatever you want. But just because you can do it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea and it doesn’t mean it makes any sense.”

    Live with it kid, there’s Deus Ex’s in almost every plot here and there. And just so you don’t respond with “Not in any GOOD plot”, I’ll ask you to name one that isn’t a book, and completely free of any Deus Ex. Particularly an RPG, since that’s what we’re on the subject of here.

    “Or you could just block out all the windows so the prisoners can’t see outside the prison. Yet again, the exact same function at a fraction of the cost and far less complicated.”

    Or it could be a Fantasy game, where the more ridiculous and artistic something is, the better. See FF6 Moving Castle reference, see the construction of several complexes in Final Fantasy 7, most notably with Midgar. Hell, see pretty much ALL of Final Fantasy 9. The point of the games isn’t real life efficiency, it’s stunning artwork and creativity to bring you into a parallel world where everything is more fantastic and overdone. I’d like to just remind you Final Fantasy does not operate completely within bounds of usual logic (see Final Fantasy 4, and being able to walk on the moon with no space equipment at all).

    “I’m sorry, but exactly what part of “no competent military organization would give prison guards access to weapons of mass destruction” didn’t you understand?”

    The part where you don’t know who the truck belongs to. For all you know, it could have been some level of higher commander visiting the Prison base to see that everything is kept up to standards. After all, Seifer, the Queens Knight, is there. Biggs and Wedge, if i remember right, are there. And they were pretty much the technicians of Galbadia given their fixing of a satellite tower and construction of giant mechanical spider. Would it be any more logical if Quistis suddenly became a computer expert, and hacked into the door to open it ala Final Fantasy 7? Or would you rather fight some kind of large monster and pick the key off them like in most every other RPG? At least this one kinda offers a competent solution to the first key problem.

    “So it’s okay for the game designers to throw common sense and basic logic completely out the window because “it’s not real life”? I ask again, are you even hearing yourself?”

    I’ll say this again: There are too many unknowns for you to talk about this like it lacks common sense. Does it lack proper explanation? Yeah, but I don’t really dwell on it that much. Once again, for all we know the truck belonged to some higher ups who went to check in on the prison. Inspectors, particularly technicians, would likely have the kind of access to a silo like that. Especially if it actually was Biggs and Wedges truck, since they seem to be pretty much the top 2 engineers of the whole place. The point is, certain assumptions would have to be made to say it makes no sense.

    “At least Super Mario Bros. doesn’t pretend to place itself in a semi-realistic environment or a serious story. Super Mario Bros. is the video game equivalent of Looney Toons. FF8 is the video game equivalent of Eragon.”

    But what about any of the other games I listed there? Especially Final Fantasy 6’s moving castle, a game that I have suspicions that Spoony likes from his FFVII review? The Megaman X series had a certain level of futuristic realism to it as well, so why that? This is the smallest and most insignificant of nitpicking ever, and there isn’t even good evidence to back any of this up. I can name you DOZENS of good games that have bigger plotholes than that, and I can even name alot of other points in THIS game that have worse plotholes, so it seems very weird to make such a big deal out of a simple KEYCARD found in the back of a truck. It would have made literally no gameplay difference at all if you would have just ran down some Scientists and stole their card. I just don’t see the point of making such a large deal about such a small plot element.

    Also, Eragon was a bad mashup/ripoff of about 4 different movies. At least FFVIII made attempts to be unique.

It’s all in good fun, hell I may not agree with some of the things he says either, but I’m not about to get defensive about them either. I take it for what it is, his opinion of the game. If you can’t handle that then don’t watch the video.

    First time posting in the FFVIII comments. Although I’ve been keeping up with the videos for awhile, already. Stumbled across Spoony’s site when the FFVIII video was still at the sixth video, I think. Anyway…

    I agree with Nenny. WHY SO SERIOUS, GAIZ? Gh0st and mightysamurai both have their points. Gh0st, I admire both your ability to remain civil in the face of personal attacks as well as your grasp on logic and reality, but if you enjoy arguments so much, why not hit up a (debate) forum suited for such things? There will be more people there in the mindset and the mood for a good argument. And mightysamurai, while I agree with your points (to an extent), there’s no sense in resorting to name-calling. Doing so kind of hurts the credibility of your argument. Just like using appropriate grammar and spelling, and being a completely random goofball, there’s a time and place for everything. Even on the interwubz.

    Personally, I think this video could have done without the Doctor Insano segment, and I think that the Star Wars segment was a touch too long. They were still amusing bits, though – but I just think that a few seconds shaved from each would have been less disruptive to the flow of the video. A subtle stroke of the brush, if you will.

    Otherwise, the rest had me chuckling heartily. I hope to see more of this series of reviews. Otherwise, oh well. SWAT 4 videos are fine, too.

  • Gh0st

    Thanks for the compliment Zealot, but the reason the whole thing actually turned into an argument was a bit unexpected. At first, I was really just posting here so that I could bring up a couple points surrounding FFVIII both as a whole and in this review. But since someone decided to take me up on those points, I had to defend them, and well… you see where it goes from there. Still, I know well the rule of “once you open your mouth on the internet, it becomes open season”, combined with the fairly derogative nature of the first comment, I really should have expected that within the next post or so.

    Sorry to turn this place into a battleground of essay-lengthed posts. I just felt that after about 8 or 9 of these videos, I would throw in my two cents.

    Just wanted to say, when you give commentary on the story, your rather hillarious, when you rant about the game, you sound like a dick that doesn’t know what he’s talking about, especially since a lot of your points are, “I don’t know” but I’m not here to bash you, I get that, that’s the whole point. It’s funny how you seem to kinda love this game, but its so easy to tear down you do it anyway. Anyway, you’re doing pretty well, just really, the being a dick isn’t actually funny, I just sit through it till you get back to the story.

    Comments: tl;dr. Seem to be a lot of people acknowledging that Spoony is right on the money, but he shouldn’t point any of this out because it’s a Final Fantasy game. Not really seeing how that line of argument works, mainly because it doesn’t.

    Anyhoo, good vid, looking forward to the next one, hope more FFVIII fanbois get pissed off.

    I still feel the porgrammers should of went with there original idea for FF8 where you can play as either Squall or Laguna as the main character but yeah….I am not sure if I wanna play a 8 DISC RPG like this just to get more use of the so called zapping system (guy A gets SMG, guy B gets backpack or guy A gets SMG and backpack while guy B gets nothing or guy A get nothing while guy B gets SMG and backpack as featured in RESIDENT EVIL 2) that they also planned. I vaugely remember FF9 but I do remember some lame o moments though and i remember Laguna having a crush on some girl at that part. Yeah Kiros is a guy and I think he was modled after voldo as spoony said but to be more of a male in place of being….uh…difficult to describe Voldo. lol. Anyhoo, about the ‘drill prison’ If I remember right it’s suppose to be a high high high high security prison for those that are like super enemies of the state (like supposedly to not even have a SUPERMAN escape from?) so no one knows where the prison is or where it could be (cuz it moves) and how to break anyone out as I think someone in the game mentioned. the other stuff yeah I know is dumb as far as FF8 goes and I thought the WAR GAMES part at the end of the video was awsome.

    I agree with RedZealot6 in that I think the Dr Insano bit was too long. I mean, it’s quite funny, of course, but when it gets to the “Ok, you can stop now” point, that’s not a good sign. That’s not an insult, just a heads-up on audience opinion…
    I love it when you take the mick out of the storyline! It is really seriously dumb, but there’s still loads of stuff I wouldn’t have taken much notice of otherwise that you take and make funny. Like the Zell-Squall bit. I mean… XD

    I love it when you take the mick out of the storyline! It is really seriously dumb, but there’s still loads of stuff I wouldn’t have taken much notice of otherwise that you take and make funny. Like the Zell-Squall bit. I mean… XD

  • M.MC

    I too agree about the Insano bit; honestly, it’s like that character is becoming your replacement ‘playing with action figures’ bit. Plus, I know that maniacal laughter can take a lot of breath out of you when you laugh out loud, but could you please work on that instead? The closed-mouth laughter gets a little annoying.

    Otherwise, hilarious review! Excellent job on the scene of Zell’s gratitude and with the goof-checking rationality!

    One little nitpick I’d like to make: the garage they take refuge in is actually part of the giant drill prison. Once the jail finishes tunneling down to ground level they just get out and take the trucks with them. It makes sense that there’d be military trucks there as well, since it is a high-level government prison for dissenters and political prisoners and so forth.

    Of course, they still just happened to pick a truck that had access to a nuclear silo, with spare uniforms in the back, and the previous driver was shit stupid enough to just leave his access card in the glove box. But the garage itself made sense at least!

    WAIT, wait… If they don’t have radar, sonar, or radio, THEN WHY THE HELL DO THEY HAVE WIRELESS COMMUNICATION!?
    When I played through the game, I’m pretty sure that I saw a few NPC’s (enemies most likely) use wireless transceivers and walkie-talkies. How in the holy mother of lord dang mother fucking shit does that work!?Oh, and if they don’t have any of the three things I mentioned earlier, then they shouldn’t have wi-fi either! Though Noah, it could be worse. You could have gotten a lobotomy and have had the procedure done by Selphie (actually, that’s not a bad idea if you want death to be sentenced upon yourself or another).

    Actually, the Laguna flash backs tell you a lot if you took the time to pay attention. This one in particular, since Raine just so happens to be Squalls mom.

    Also, some of the comments on here are just stupid. The prison is built to keep people from the outside breaking out those on the inside. If people can’t find the prison, they can’t break any one out can they?

    Also, about the truck, did it ever occur to you that maybe whoever owned the truck had TWO jobs? Hence why he doesn’t have the card key to the missile silo on him, as well as what the truck was doing at the prison.

    Most of you are bitching about missing logic, when here I solved two of the arguments on here with common sense!

    P.S. Are you guys actually calling the anti magic field Deus Ex? You guys are aware that a lot of RPG’s had anti-magic levels, right?

    I’d actually assumed the prison was using its inmates for free labor – converting raw materials or something, so the drill design was on big mining/construction site. ::shrug:: Back when I played it, I found the glaring holes to be in the orphanage back story and didn’t take the rest too seriously.

    Very funny, and nice Clue references.

    Spoony great review this my favorite out of your fantasy 8 segments

    Hey Cody Spoony finish the game a long time ago he just going back by each segment at a time.

    Zell was hugging Squall while on his knee where Squall crotch was. When I first played that thought ran across my head too. That a was joke don’t take too seriously.

    About mutated cater”chi”pillars that just nitpicking on things no care about. 1. It a still joke try to keep up 2. werewolf or orcs would still been cooler.

    PS. Spoony gave his reason why he thought Kiros was woman for a second, but he guess was a boy. Besides those are not dreadlock they look more like bead hair that a woman would have.

    jimmyjoejohn #234 Your logic take such a leap it can easily pass the grand canyon. The FF8 prison is with drill on the bottom to dig underground. Creative yes, cool yes, practical no. According to you in order keep the prison hidden all they need to do is built the prison underground and keep the location a secret.

    As for that guy with two jobs theory, nice try, but here 3 reason why it does not work.
    1. Why would he need two jobs? To have that high level of clearance in the missle silos or work in maxium prison I would imagine he get enough money.

    2. Would he even be allowed to have 2 jobs? I doubt the government would allow someone with that much access to a missles base can get a 2nd job, where s/he surround by dangerous inmates. Imagine someone broke out and attack that person search his wallet. Commuting would be hell if both his jobs are full-time.

    3. Could anyone handle two high stress jobs like those? People have broken down in one of them, but your saying he can handle two.

    That still miss the point that of all trucks that the gang stole it be the one where he left his keycard. That kind hard to shallow.

    2. Would he even be allowed to have 2 jobs? I doubt the government would allow someone with that much access to a missles base can get a 2nd job, where s/he surround by dangerous inmates. Imagine someone broke out and attack that person search his wallet. Commuting would be hell if both his jobs are full-time.

    3. Could anyone handle two high stress jobs like those? People have broken down in one of them, but your saying he can handle two.

    That still miss the point that of all trucks that the gang stole it be the one where he left his keycard. That kind hard to shallow.

According to you in order keep the prison hidden all they need to do is built the prison underground and keep the location a secret.

    I have never played a game so unprofessional in its plot that takes itself so seriously at the same time. It’s not even like it is that hard to come up with a decent video game plot. The standards are so incredibly low, especially when you compare plots of “classic” video games to those of classic fictional novels.

    It’s so ironic that the final fantasy series which brags on having deep meaningful plots and characters have some of the worst and most cliche one dimensional characters and the most nonsensical plots.

    That said, I actually enjoyed watching my brother play XII, if only because Balthier and Cid were awesome characters. The game still had a few issues plotwise, like how that one guard fell a hundred floors and survive (Gabranth) but when its far and few between, it can be forgiven quite easily.

    As for fantasy works, there is a reason many literary critics laugh at fantasy and sci-fi and that is because so many authors just throw realism totally out of the window and make up the rules as they go. It’s stories like these that plague the franchise, and final fantasy 8 is just one more added to the list.

    The way I see RPGs, all the items and spells these characters have are practically non-canon since they ALMOST NEVER use them in cutscenes… when it matters. Aeris death theme being a prime example. Phoenix Downs don’t actually revive people, casting cure on a mortally injured person doesn’t actually heal them, it’s all basically non-canon.

    **Looks above**
    Well, that was quite the RPG rant! No wonder I like Mario RPGs so much; cute, simple, humorous and fun to play. Whatever happened to RPGs like that?

    As always, excelllent review Spoony. It’s amazing that your generic FF game can get such high scores and yet games of masterpiece storytelling, like the Silent Hill series (2 and 3 specifically) can’t get higher than 85%

    I wonder if I'm just being stupid, which I usually get jarred for my speculation based on the info I get from Spoony's review of FF8, but doesn't the bartender from the town Laguna and Kiros meet up at look like the girl Laguna hug at the end? I'm not sure what to call her, since Spoony said he got her name from in the commentary, but she's got the same sweater and yellow headband. If you don't know who I'm talking about, she's on screen at 4:24 minutes in in Part 9.
    If someone else knows this already, or I'm a retard and that's her clone or something, don't yell at me too bad. o~o

    Awesome T-shirt! did you make that on your own?

    So fun to hear the Spoon rip on FF8. I so wanted to like it after playing FF6 and 7 that i fooled myself thinking it was probably getting better ALL THE WAY until the last boss tower. Then, when i understood that it was the last boss, and FUBAR i quit, and am proud to say, i have never finished the game.

    I managed to get fooled again by FFX(that managed to suck even harder than 8), and FF9. And now, probably FF12 since teh spoon said it was good…1 hour in it and it look like a MMO

    The FF series started off making me like games, and now have made me hate games….i dont like RPG games anymore…

    I keep dusting off my psx when i feel for some nostalgia and quality with Xenogears, chrono trigger, FF6 & 7. Since im so tired of the medicore half assed stuff their dishing out

    I can't remember any of this, and I nearly completed the game. THAT is how bored I was. How some people can love this game above all else is far out of my understanding…
    I'd rather play FF12 over this, as well, it's a GOOD Final Fantasy game! This just relied on a Gun Blade wielding-Emo to carry players through the game. Oh, scratch that, I'd rather go spend $8 on a game at Freecraigslistads, at least that's going to a good cause and is worth my time.
    I especially loved the part of the game when Squall was getting shocked by Seifer, sure he can get weak from that, but dragons biting his head don't hurt at all…

    My theory for the phoenix down/revive/Aeris-is-dead thing is that the restorative magic and items in the games work because the characters are only knocked out. As they are still alive, only unconscious, such items “revive” them. Kind of like how defibrillators are used in some FPS games. Since Aeris is quite definitely dead, fuck phoenix downs, just bury the bitch.

    cmon final fantasy 8 is a good game it was the 90's lots of games didnt make sense. you could scrutumise every game about these stupid details, you just ignoren them. for what ive seen uptill now there are still no good arguments to hate this game onjly little things like for excample the drill prison, the complexity of the junctioning system which you get used at pretty soon, the magic drawing which you can get by drawin from monsters or the thing you did not mention the draw points wich are all over the game ! I had never had aany problems with collecting magic the rarest ofc. were the hardest to collect what is normal …
    so if you hate the game then I think your one of the few people …..

    • kristopher_kross

      When i played it during that time (when i was a kid) right after having just played 7 and 9 i was completely disappointed almost immediately. why? because the story is sooooooooooo boring and the “it gets good” part never ever happens. same deal with ff12. all the gripes for both games could be forgiven if the stories were good. but sadly both games completely failed to deliver.

  • http://twitter.com/JackKonEl J.P. Tull

    I borrowed a copy of FFVIII from a friend to try it for myself, and I wasted hours drawing so many spells. Any system that means you have to bend over and get wailed on by monsters while cooing “Thank you sir, may I please have another?” just so you can get a few poxy spells is not a good system. Yes, the card refinement system makes it easier, not that the game ever tells you that; I had to look that up, and even then it was Draw and Draw and Draw and apply directly to the forehead and Draw and Draw

    Also, using the “it was the 90's lots of games didnt make sense” argument is weak, considering you had games like the Monkey Island series, Day of the Tentacle and even FFVI that had great plotlines that were also released around this time. VIII was released in the late 90's, so if anything, it should have started making MORE sense as we prepared to enter the new millennium. Game stories started improving before VIII came out, so there's no excuse for its plot to be riddled with errors.

    I dislike the game not just because it's bad, but because it could have been really good.

  • Hendrikdb

    you shouldv mentioned in a review you could get magiv from the blue draw points on the floor though, there are many and for me it was the only way I got so many magic before I also descovered I could draw magic from cards and stuff :D .
    but you do said many things that were true. in fact most things you said were true but that doesnt mean you are right. It just annoyed me that you went in every little detail (cause really if you wouldv sum up all the errors and faults in the game you would spend a week on it) like the building form of the prison, the blade with a gun on it, the weapon of Rinoa , …. and when I watched the review about final fantasy x (which I have not played yet) you started to rage about the fact that water came from no where and you could live in it and play with a voleyball in it. its fantasy you jsut accept it. what if I started scrutumizing every detail of games like tekken where some characters do abnormal attacks and start asking “how did they do that? what planet are they from ?” or in prince of persia “how can he make structures out of memories ? how can he become stronger from onloy a medailion” it doesnt make sense but you just accept it.

    Suspension of disbelief. The more one can properly explain something, the better one can suspend their disbelief.

    Both Final Fantasy 8 and 10 suffered from a lack of appropriate explanation in any form, including discussions with every unimportant NPCs, looking at all unimportant items and checking everything one could.

    Star Ocean 3 curiously explains everything, in an optional manner through the Dictionary and in such a way, became one of the more developed game universe I’ve come to know on a console and left me generally without any question… Save of course for the plot twist, but that falls back unto the three key characters whose powers attained within their world would theoretically function within any other world as the other worlds would still follow the rules of said magical powers which in other words could be considered similarily to an alchemical equation that works whether simulated or realized in reality, which in turn… You know what, this isn’t something I need to think about at 2AM.

    But needless to say, FF8 had quite a lot of flaws, and he doesn’t always just nitpick, many things are indeed rather senseless.

    Something I enjoy from old school RPGs… At least things made more sense and the characters seemed less dunce.

      That is the absolute laziest excuse in the world. The introduction to fantasy elements to a story that is supposed to be played straight does NOT allow writers to give the middle finger to logic and rational thought. This creates epic plot holes, and you can’t just use the genre of the story to fill them in.

        So, due to the fact that you’re a logical person (which is what I assume considering how you replied) all of your dreams, whether conscious or not, are perfectly logical? Don’t get me wrong, the more explanations there are the easier it is to understand the FICTIONAL world that you are being shown. However, it is just that, fictional. Explanation is not a requisite as this game and many others have shown you. Or would you have preferred that they explained every little detail so that you knew the entire complicated process at how the spell Demi takes a portion of the enemy’s health and appears the way it does? There were already enough tutorials in VIII, I don’t need an encyclopedia of a fictional world that I’m never going to look at.

    While that would make the game awesome in a way. I doubt that is what the game makers intended. i read the whole article and that assumption is based on reeeeeeeeeeeeeally stretching the VERY few things that would lead one to believe that.

    It’s quite explainable Spoony. The Anti-magic field was simply isolated to the prisoner cells. Anti-magic in there while mages outside are fine.

       I’d like to hear you explain how, exactly, that works.  If you’re going to defend such a stupid idea, you must know quite a great deal about how these “anti-magic” fields are created and controlled…

      • redscores2

        It is called magic… duh… ok… as a comparison, how can a spell in Ultima destroy the world? aka Armaggedon spell… how can you explain that you can get scientific weapons in ultima? like blasters and shit.

        I can tell you how, it is called FANTASY, take it or leave it, Spoony is just searching for bullshit…. the games he loves make even less sense than FF8 (the whole Ultima line for example).

          Well, the Ultima games being absurd are part of why they’re endearing. In Final Fantasy 8 things like that are plot holes because it’s supposed to make sense.

          When critics are raging against something, they take every bit of ammunition they can find, sometimes it isn’t perfect or totally solid but they usually have pretty good grounds to dislike something.

          Also, being in the fantasy genre isn’t really a top-notch excuse to make up things that don’t make sense.

            The whole anti-magic field business is stupid but easy to explain. Those glowing rocks in the wall emit a constant “Silence” spell making magic impossible. Without all their gear protecting them against the Silence status effect, there’s no way to cast magic. Then again, the developers probably didn’t put that much thought into the game.

            Except that “Silence” literally makes you silent. You aren’t able to cast, because you can’t speak.

    the garage with the trucks was on the top of the prison i love your videos but its really anoying when you rip something off with out knowing what you are talking about.

    The flashbacks are really creepy, when you have all the info and you think about them.  Taken with the “Squall Died” theory, it becomes creepier.  Laguna had a thing for Julia, who turns out to be Rinoa’s mother.  Not too bad, until you know the associations Laguna has with another character.  He falls for a woman named Raine.  Funny thing is, Raine’s maiden last name is Leonheart.  Hence, she is Squall’s mother.  I think you can figure out who his father is, and why this becomes creepy concerning developments between Squall and Rinoa in the game.

    • cubicentertain

       How’s that creepy? And is ‘Squall Died’ the same as ‘Rinoa is Ultimecia’?

  • ian.haver

    do you never just crack of laughter when acting a scene with dr. insano?

  • Sam Park

    I wonder why he never mentioned that Squall’s Laguna’s son?

    • http://www.facebook.com/rabblesthebinx Brian Frang

      Probably because it’s never stated directly, only heavily implied.

      Also Spoony, there’s actually a perfectly good reason Squall survived being impaled: The scene where he falls off the balcony clearly shows that he was impaled in the RIGHT side of the chest, near the shoulder.

      • http://www.facebook.com/JexMugen Jonathan Jacob

        True, but after that Squall woke up in the cell saying: No wound, but how?Peoples may have conclude that’s is beacause they healed his wounds so they can interogate him, but there absolutly no scratches, not even bandages on him! He did recived a scratch on his head at the begening of the game, so how come he did not have a scratch on his body at that scene?

  • Cellidor

    I know exactly how anti-magic fields work, actually.

    It’s really a simple concept.

    You see, they work because shut up, that’s why!

    You know what else that “moombah” looks like?  He reminds me of Snarf from Thundercats.

  • Segatron

    Those Anti-Magic field Generators could be useful.  Is there a USB power option for laptops?  It would solve all my current issues if I could take one of those to the park.

    The Moomba’s were my favorite FF Mascot animal. Stupid I know, and their backstories still really dumb, but they’re still my favorite. I loved how they made a cameo in X as a doll. I wish they showed up more though.

    I have to Argee if you working with a world that you can come back form the dead, have healing items. don’t BS saying they have to die, if you want to rid some oen just make them dispear or some crap not say they die and you don’t have item to fix that and too dumb not to ues it.

  • Hippiethecat124

    Glad to see Spoony had as much fun with the retractable book-light as I did!

  • Martyn Hare

    Dude. KO != Death. When your HP hits 0 you get KO’ed, you don’t die…. nooob! :P

    Phoenix Downs/Full-Life and the like are for injuries which paramedics could otherwise deal with ;)

    how the hell they can control a ICBM that ALREADY WAS FIRED! if there isn’t any way of having long range comunication?!! …you know what screw the logic! this game was designed to be played drunk!

    YOU’RE OVERTHINKING IT DUDE!

    I’m not saying don’t think. I’m saying don’t apply this to real life physics. Its like asking how link carries all his weapons without any kind of backpack, sack or purse in legend of zelda.

  • He that knows

    I found this on the internet awhile ago (Im so special for my internet skills), the theory that says that after disc 1 Squall is dead or dying.It basically boils down to this : ONE DOES NOT SURVIVE ICE SPIKES THROUGH THE CHEST AND A FALL FROM A BRIDGE. If Aeris dies from a sword through the chest, then Squall died of massive blood loss.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joel.snelling Joel Laurie Snelling

    that whole leaving a keycard for a nuke facility lying around, it’s not so mad, considering in jolly old england, laptops containing government secrets have been left on trains and the military left a ROCKET LAUNCHER in a public bathroom.

  • Zipper Dragon

    Umm, how do you beat the bosses without random encounters. Random encounters let you lv up

    • Ninty

      You don’t really need to level up because you can just collect and junction the right spells to every character’s stats. The game also adjusts its difficulty based on your level, if I remember correctly, so leveling up isn’t as important as junctioning and drawing.

  • Sir Quaffler

    I agree. Looking through this, it seems to be the only possible way to make any damn sense of the overarching plot. It’s most likely not what the original makers intended, but whatever, they don’t know what they’re doing anyway. Because otherwise the game’s just fucking retarded.

    Also, that makes the end fight with Ultimecia kinda awesome. If she’s supposed to be the remaining figment of Squall’s conscious that’s aware of the fact that he’s dying, that puts things in a different perspective. She isn’t really trying to take over the world or whatever, she’s trying to delay Squall’s death by making the plot as convoluted as possible. And the end fight where she’s able to manipulate the meta concepts of battle’s pretty interesting as well; it’s one of the only examples I can think of where the end boss takes advantage of the very core mechanics of the game against the protagonist.

    The ‘garage’ is actually the prison, after it’s submerged. Hence the Galbadian army uniforms and keycards. Still a bit convenient, but not quite so crazy.

    • Ninty

      Yup, the Dusks to be exact.

  • Dudley

    The way I justify it in my head is that when your characters are at zero hit points, they’re not actually dead, just unconscious. So Phoenix Down revives them, it doesn’t resurect them. Kinda like in D&D 3 where characters only actually die at -10 hit points. So since Sephiroth really killed Aeris, a Phoenix Down wouldn’t work.

  • Timothy Ian McMillan

    Spoony needs to brush up on his D&D. Anti-magic fields are a spell unto themselves; it ain’t exactly an unjustifiable plot device.

    Cast a spell on the prison, or have some device emanate a constant anti-magic spell. It’s be the FIRST thing you think about when designing a prison in a world of magic. Shit doesn’t have to be explained in story, it makes absolute sense to not want your prisoners to have access to magic.

  • outsiderMiracles

    Except… Aerith/Aeris died of drowning, because Cloud’s an idiot… Seriously, lack of blood plus the location of the pierced PLUS the fact that dead bodies don’t sink = Cloud just murdered his girlfriend. But I digress, surviving a five-foot ice spear is entirely possible, I do it at least twice a week… Then again I’m a chaotic being, we’re like clowns, no matter how hard you try WE JUST WON’T DIE.
