After the crazy issues I had with No Man’s Sky, I decided that my next stream should be a game I was certain I could play without technical difficulty. That, combined with my internal desire to work towards completing things, I decided to stream the 8th episode of “Let’s Play Final Fantasy 4.” In this episode, I finished off the Giant of Bab-Il, got the Excalibur sword, beat Bahamut (to get the most powerful summon in the game), and began the endgame content.

For part of this stream, I did have to do some cheat-fueled leveling up and it’s a good thing I did because I had several tough battles once I started doing the work on the moon. Despite this, I was able to build up enough levels in a fast enough time to take on the endgame. Once I got inside the Lunar Subtrane, I spent a lot of time collecting the ultimate weapons/armor for the team and generally being shocked about how intense the enemies were. Depending on how much time I devote to it, I may be able to finish the play through in one or two more episodes so stay tuned!

Here is episode 8:

I had to take about a week off from streaming because I had a sore throat and couldn’t use my voice. Now, my voice is not 100% yet, but I had enough to narrate through another big chunk of the material just before we hit the end-game section. Unfortunately, the audio started out VERY hot so I apologize for that.

In this stream, we went through the entire Land of the Summoned Monsters quest to get the Asura and Leviathan summons. We also beat Odin (on the second attempt) and added him to our summoned monsters list. When we completed these quests, the next thing was the FAMOUS Lunar Whale Airship summoning and visiting the moon for the first time! Now that we have FuSoYa on our team, we returned to earth and faced off with the Giant of Bab-Il. Unfortunately, I didn’t finish it on stream because of the serious amount of damage my party took when battling the Four Fiends.

I hope you enjoy this episode of Final Fantasy 4! Check out the YouTube link below:

Please join me live on my stream sometime!

Hello everyone! I got even further into Final Fantasy 4 on a recent stream. In episode 6, we took care of the Sealed Cave, watched the Tower-of Bab-il get energized and beat the Sylph cave to get the Sylph to summon. Please enjoy!

Please watch my Twitch channel ( to see my streams live!

Last night, I got a great opportunity to spend some time making my way through another episode of “Let’s Play Final Fantasy 4.” I took a little break to play some other games on my stream, but I returned to the game to play more. This time, I went through the first climb of the Tower of Bab-Il, the work through Eblan, and finally the second Tower of Bab-Il climb. I am now about 3/4 of the way through the game.

Please see the YouTube video here:

Once again, I played Final Fantasy 4 on my Twitch stream and got a fourth episode ready to go. In this episode, we went through the Toroia storyline, the Tower of Zot, and getting into the first part of the Underground map. It was a fun time!

Once again, I streamed playing Final Fantasy 4 on Twitch and got some viewers that enjoyed it. I have been backing the streams up daily to YouTube so you should be able to watch them whenever! I plan to keep streaming this (though I might switch up games some days) until I beat the game, but I will try to post each episode here.

I have streamed Final Fantasy 4 for three consecutive Twitch streams and they are usually well attended. I hope you guys are enjoying this material. Here is the link for the episode from Saturday and I will post the link to the one on Sunday as well.

I promised some retro content so here it is! Last night I streamed the first little bit of Final Fantasy 4 (FF2 in SNES America) on Twitch. I plan on doing a series of episodes on this to get from the beginning to the end but it may take a while to go all the way through it. Enjoy!

The Retro Gamer Gets Twitchy

Hello visitors! As usual, it’s been a while since I have posted. However, I have an important reason this time! As of the first day of January, I have begun streaming on! I have all the equipment once might need because my remote-only job uses a lot of video conferencing. I also have a pretty bomb laptop that I bought as a solid gaming machine and only barely started to use. All the stars have aligned and I launched:

On this new stream, I will mostly be playing newer video games thanks to XBox GamePass, but I will stream some retro games too. In fact, I actually streamed “Knights of the Round” with my kids the other day. I do not intend to make money off this (though some extra cash would be cool). Instead, I just want to have the joy of playing video games and chatting with other folks who like them. I would welcome you to subscribe to my channel, and I will likely be updating more things on this website to match the branding of my Twitch account.

Hello friends! I decided that since I am gaming but not doing much retro, it wouldn’t hurt to have a fun non-retro game post. I actually posted this information on the Sims 4 Reddit but decided to go ahead and post it here because it was a fun to write and many of you may not even have Reddit. So here we go, I hope you enjoy!

I wanted to share an interesting story I attempted to complete on The Sims 4. I wanted a story where my vampire character caused so many deaths that he became friends with Grim and eventually started a relationship. However, I wanted my Grim to be a female because I thought having a female Grim Reaper would be interesting. I had to use some cheats to do parts of it but not much.

Basically, I called an annoying neighbor over to my house in Strangeville. I locked the doors and used MCCC to “Kill Sim” (I let them die by laughter so it wasn’t brutal). As soon as Grim showed up, I used cheats to “Add to Family”. When that was done, I used cas.fulleditmode and had Grim go to the mirror and used “Change my Sim”.

Grim appeared as he always does with the cloak and such. I clicked the “Female” gender on him. The moment I did so, his/her “Grim” hair was removed and she looked much like a female version of the ‘unmasked Grim’ that people have posted all over the net. Darker skin, black hair that was braided in a bun over her head.

The female Grim Reaper, unmasked

When I returned to the game with this female Grim as a part of my house, she still had the reaper trait, smoke feet, etc. I changed her appearance to give her a hat that looks like the Egyptian Anubis head for her “hood” but the image is not the same. What can I say? I was trying to do this without any custom content.

This is…um…not quite what I was looking for.

I dug around in the wonderful Sims 4 mod world and found two custom content options. One by maimouth that makes the hood look more like a real hood with a slightly open face. I also found a hood by snaitf who made a package that makes the real “hair/hood” an actual hairstyle you can select. So, when I gave her this hair and she basically looks and acts like I would expect her to look and act.

The modified Grim Reaper with the custom content hair that works.

However, I still wanted one outfit where I could have her “remove her hood” as it were. After all, why be in a relationship with someone if you can’t ever actually see their face. I chose to modify her sleepwear and changed the hair to be the original hair she had when she was gender-changed. She switched into the t-shirt, sweatpants, and bare feet that I had selected, and approached the bed to sleep.

Female Grim with chosen sleepwear (it had to be all black.. right?)

But as soon as she laid down in her bed, her hood magically reappeared and I could not change it. Why on earth would she want to sleep with her face covered? I mean… she doesn’t actually sleep because she’s the grim reaper.

Female Grim won’t sleep without her hood…

I saved the game so I could do some tweaking and it was a good thing! As soon as I re-opened it, the save won’t load. I even disabled all the other mods and had no success. So I had a brief bit of time to experiment with the female Grim Reaper before it corrupted my file… c’est la vie.

I know that it is silly to experiment with things that aren’t supposed to work in The Sims 4 but I can’t believe that no one else has tried to do a ‘female Grim’ and didn’t post about whether or not it broke their game. I think it would be fascinating if a player could build up rapport with Grim and have him (or her) be able to remove the hood as a piece of their outfit without ruining the game. Another interesting idea would be if the Grim’s gender and even their face without the hood was completely random.

I decided that I wanted to try whatever steps I could to make the file work properly. So, I removed both custom content pieces and then loaded the save again. It took a while to load but finally worked. I took the grim “hair” off all but one outfit and it seems to work. The issue seems to happen when the “Grim Hair” is added to an outfit besides the reaper robe. Not sure if that matters but it worked for me.

I hope you enjoyed it!
