FFWiki Let's Play Incoming

So people of my blog, your dear master of ceremonies, Blue Highwind here will be contributing to the FFWiki's most interesting project yet:  a Let's Play of "Final Fantasy VI", the least controversial game in the Final Fantasy series - because everybody loves it.  In the next few weeks the project master, ScatheMote will be posting the vids to Youtube of our work.  In the interests of egalitarianism, I won't actually be commentating on every link, we're working in randomized shifts.  So even though I will only be in about a quarter of the videos, you'll get to hear the lovely voices and opinions of the entire FFWiki upper echelon of characters, lunatics, and assorted undesirables.  I, of course, am the most undesirable of them all but even so this is a very exciting project for me personally.

Also, for most of you dear readers this will be the very first you've ever heard my voice.  So I'll soon be breaking whatever illusions you may have of what I sound like as I chill with my buddies from all around the world.

I've been meaning to do a Let's Play of some kind for years now.  And this really is something of a dream come true.  I can soon cross this off my bucket list.  But personally, I'm hoping this is not my last LP.  And I'm hoping this is not the last project the FFWiki creates together.  Hopefully I can host one myself one day.  So far we've only competing the very first few hours, but already its very cool stuff.  I'll be posting all the links here on this blog around the same time they've posted on Youtube and on the FFWiki.  Stay tuned.

UPDATE:  The very first video of the LP is up already.  ScatheMote is going to add two videos every week, approximately.  I also got to hear the first cut of my video (which will be up in two weeks) and it turns out I did a terrible job of recording my voice.  >_<  But this first hour of video sounds fine.

  1. Everyone loves FF6? Not me! I gave up after wandering around some desolate wasteland with Gau and I think Cyan. And why do you think you're so undesirable? What happened to your enormous ego?!

    1. If you don't like FFVI, I don't need to explain my ego to you. :p

  2. You read like a cool cucumber, but I've got a bad feeling about this.

  3. Oooh this is going to be sweet! And if you guys need help or tips with audio or special effects I'm great at those. Plus will this be one of those monolouge Let's Play or will it have jokes and cut aways?

    1. Youtube. I'll post the videos here and Scathe will probably post them on the FFWiki somewhere.

  6. I will try to watch it.

    BTW, which release of Final Fantasy VI will you be playing? The wolsey translation is funnier, and will probably make for a better LP. Besides, it looks better on the SNES.

  8. Your voice is deeper than I expected. Also, if given the oppurtunity, I would love to do an LP with you.
