Red = My replies
Blue = Moniker's commentary
It begins again!
Also, don't think this'll be the last hack I make. I've been on a productivity streak lately, and I'm already working on what I'll call a remake of Super Hard Lyn Mode. Out of inspiration, I even made a brand spankin' new player phase theme for it.
And now... For the coveted developer's commentary.
*checks in-jokes folder*
Uhh... I got nothing.
No in joke here. This is just the kind of shit EvilEggoWaffle would say.
Mark: The damage is already done.
Nonsense! If you don't know what the real Marc's Precious is, then you can just make up what it is and tell yourself it's that!
But I wanna know what FdRStar thinks my precious is! :V
Markyjoe is the middle sibling, and also clearly the most successful, since he has a youtube channel.
Well. Funny you say that. EvilEggoWaffle and I frequently debate on who is the more successful between us. He thinks he is because he has a well paying job, a wife, and he's soon going to have his own house. I think I'm more successful because of my many talents (music, videos, hacking, etc.), my success as a content creator, and the fact that I'm going to be the only one in the immediately family to have a bachelor's degree.
As much as I'd like to have my own house and maybe a girlfriend, the flipside is that EvilEggoWaffle does not seem to have any big dreams or ambitions, and is heavily dependant on me to get creative projects done. For example...
EEW: I suck at Fire Emblem.
I think EEW barely even plays Fire Emblem. Did EEW help with the hack's writing? No, he probably had a hard time typing with those skinny waffle arms...
... you guessed here that EEW probably didn't help with much of the writing. Believe it or not, this entire hack was his vision, and he did most of the writing. As for me, I did literally everything else, and that includes adding in some writing of my own, and editing his writing to be less in-jokey so you don't need a fuckin' MarkyJoe Encyclopedia to understand what the hell is going on.
You know, I was kind of expecting us to negotiate or something.
Pssh! Who the fuck does that? Diplomacy. HAH! Only wimps do that!
TheMoniker's Tier list for Marc's Precious: Revenge, and my replies. SPOILER ALERT.
So, wait, hmmm... You could've sent him an e-mail, but never did... and you also lost contact with him entirely? This guy appearing suddenly feels a bit... weird. I feel like we're missing a piece of the story, here.
Is the only reason Dufur's helping us is to bug us about sending the email? Is the only reason Dufur heals us is that we can't send him the e-mail if we're dead? Wait... what if the reason he's accompanying us is because he died IRL, and now he's a ghost, but he can't move on because he has unfinished business... AND THE E-MAIL IS THE UNFINISHED BUSINESS?
I'll leave it up to that wild imagination of yours. Much more entertaining that way.
Looking at my in-jokes folder, that's... everything, actually! Looks like we'll be without guidance when trying to understand the rest of the jokes in this hack.
EvilEggoWaffle was very eager to make a reference to everything we've ever done. I felt it was more important that the jokes stand on their own merits, so I generally discouraged him from doing it too much, and I had to rewrite some of his dialogue so that it would have a broader audience. Though, some references failed to make it in just cause we didn't have a good spot to put it or I was lazy.
He's stronger than the other GAMFs, with a crazy inventory, even having a special weapon! I kind of feel like we're not supposed to get too close... does he move when it's time for us to hurry up or something? That's the only different-looking generic I could find.
He's just there as a counter measure against certain camping strats. Without him, Avraxas (creator of Tales of Purt and Heirs of Rage) was able to get into that bottom left corner and cheese the entire chapter.
And thus ends the first developer's commentary in a while!
