Clock Tower Playthroughs

Back when I lived in another apartment in the same building, I decided I would play through all the Clock Tower games and document them in videos and posts. I got through the original Clock Tower for the SNES (via a fan translation) when I was back living in my childhood home for a stint as an adult. My streaming equipment wasn’t as sophisticated as it is now so the colors are a bit off (primarily dark) in many of the videos. I may remake them with better quality someday in the future. Here are the video playlists and posts documenting the Clock Tower Series all the way through Clock Tower II: The Struggle Within. Clock Tower III remains unplayed.

My Final Fantasy Playthroughs

One week, a day after a ketamine session, I decided that I could play through all of the Final Fantasy franchise. I would start with Final Fantasy I for the NES as it was released in North America, and work my way up (using fan translations if necessary) all the way through Final Fantasy XV.

Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 9

In this one post I do quite a number of things that are important to advancing in Dragon Warrior. I start out in Cantlin and travel off to Hauksness. There I find and retrieve Erdrick’s Armor, which is one piece towards defeating the Dragonlord. Then I obtain Erdrick’s Token in the swamp, the Rainbow Drop south of Rimuldar, create the Rainbow Bridge and retrieve Erdrick’s Sword in Charlock Castle, the home of the Dragonlord.

Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 8

I try to go to Cantlin, but I have to level up, a lot. I spend quite a bit of time in the tomb behind Garinham leveling up. On my way to Cantlin I encounter three new creatures for our bestiary. I finally make it to Cantlin where I learn a LOT of very useful information as to the whereabouts of Erdrick’s artifacts.

Garin’s Tomb, Staff of Rain, Stones of Sunlight, and levels, oh my! Here I gain the Silver Harp from Garin’s Tomb, and then obtain those other items from where else I need them. Once I obtain these items I gain some levels, reaching level 16 before I try my next stint.

Now that we’re level 9 I venture off to get the Fighter’s Ring from the Marsh/Mountain Cave south of Garinham. I accomplish my mission, and then decide I’ll venture around the cave for a bit and gain some experience. Unfortunately, I die, but that doesn’t get me down!

Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 5

In this episode I head from Kol down south through the Marsh Cave to Rimuldar. There I explore the town and get some magic keys. Rimuldar is FULL of clues about how to get through the game, so it’s important we talk to everyone. Also, go around the town to the key shop. Lastly, we gather some gold and experience to buy some magic armor.

Hitting level 8 we venture off and to the north and east to the village of Kol. In Kol we learn a couple interesting things, including picking up a hidden item (that we knew of beforehand). It turns out we actually want the Large Shield from Garinham, but we also do want the Half Plat from Kol, both things we accomplish (as well as getting to level 9).

Tomodachi Happiness, Episode 4

It was a nice day the other day in Chrakia (my town), so people went out and had a barbecue! That was pretty cool, but the thing I thought was the funniest was that KadarMan (my look alike) had to stand on a bench in order to participate.
