It's time for the finale of the "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream" experience. The wrong way to do the assault on AM.
After crossing the bridge, Surgat asks you to invoke the totem of entropy and then the totem of compassion. You're only supposed to invoke compassion, but if you do both...
Poof! They both vanish!
...and you get turned into a blob. Speaking of which, I posted Ellen's blob story in the main thread, and here is everyone else's
Ellen (posted again for those who haven't seen it)
If you do the right thing with Surgat and the two other AM's get rid of him, they will tell you to go destroy the Ego and only the Ego. If you do as you are told...
which is, of course, to make you into a blob.
Now, if you go against them and destroy two but not three, here is what happens.
and then you are free to walk away and get rid of the last part of AM's psyche.
During the final scene, you have three choices to make. Refusal to do what you are told just leads to AM reassuring you that you will be ok if you give up the totem of entropy. However, if you do give up the totem of entropy, this is what happens.
and back to blob.
Well, that's pretty much it for "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream". Was an interesting first Let's Play, and I look forward to my next one, which may or may not be Cosmology of Kyoto. It's a good game, but I've never actually beaten it. That may hamper my ability to do a playthrough of it.
