  • Just hopped into the infamously long line for Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure at Universal Orlando. 4 hours to wait...

    Here I am, at the 3-hour mark, and...so much for overestimation. I wasn't as close as I had hoped an hour ago. But I'm definitely nearing the end now, so I can finally ride Hagrid's motorbikes and this line nightmare will finally be over.

    It better be worth it. Have fun when you actually get there.

    I'm off the ride now. I didn't think it was possible to justify a 3-hour wait, but this ride proved me wrong. It was surprisingly lengthy and had pretty much everything I love about roller coasters in a single ride. It was nothing short of amazing.

    This is it: my new favorite roller coaster of all time.
    Just beat Luigi's Mansion 1 on GameCube with all 50 Boos, all Portrait Ghosts, and a rank C mansion. It was a bit short, but I had a ton of fun with it and it was unlike any game I'd played before. Looking forward to playing its sequels.

    Do you plan to play its remake as well?
    Who was your favorite ghost?
    Favorite Boo name?
    What was the most fun part of it?
    How would you improve the game if you could?

    -I might play the remake at some point. It would have been my version of choice if not for the fact that my 3DS broke last Christmas, but since I'll need a new one for LM2 anyway, that won't be stopping me from playing it at some point in the future.

    -Mr. Luggs. I mean, he's the ghost that eats. What's not to like?

    -Boomerang wins easily, but Booigi isn't far behind.

    -I loved how much emphasis there was on puzzle-solving. It's been quite a while since I last played a game that made you constantly stop and think about how to proceed using your surroundings. I'll admit I used a guide for a few of them, but for most of them it was just me and my brain.

    -I'd definitely make the game a bit longer, like a couple extra floors or something. I'd also add more variety in the non-portrait ghosts, and I'd add a little more jumpscare effect with each ghost appearance. Everything else was fantastic, though.
    Had a great birthday today! In terms of presents, I got some cool new clothes, a new wallet, Mario & Sonic Tokyo 2020, and a Switch Lite. My family already had a Switch, but I really like the design of the Lite and the D-Pad is nice, so it's nice to have one of my own.

    We also went bowling earlier; I've only been bowling once before, years ago, and yet I got three strikes in a row. That's better than I typically do in Wii Sports!

    Anyway, had a nice birthday. Christmas is in 11 days now, so I'll have that to look forward to as well.
    Had a nice Thanksgiving meal with family over. Got to hang out with my grandma, papa, uncle, and sister for a while too. We played various card games for a little while, and I finally got to rematch my longtime Fortune Street rival (even though I lost...again...but hey, I got close this time).

    Also, now I don't have to yell "thanksgiving first" at everyone who starts singing Christmas songs.
    You know, looking through official social media accounts of fictional characters is pretty fascinating. Especially when two different accounts document the same event from different perspectives. Really adds a unique layer of world-building.

    I'm sorry for ruining your day.
    Finished three big writing assignments for school today! My school debate is tomorrow and I've been prepping hard for it; wish me luck!

    So the debate's over now. My team didn't win, but then again, it's pretty difficult for the affirmative team to win a team policy debate at all. Still pretty proud of myself, though. I was voted best speaker in the debate!

    Glad it's over now, though. Now I can relax for a little while, with that off my shoulders.
    I finally got my braces removed today! My orthodontist gave me a bunch of sticky candies as a reward for enduring them for almost 22 months.

    By the way, I should mention that, with the removal of my braces, I got retainers. My previous appointment I ordered a custom design with a translucent green base with red glitter on it, based off the signature colors of the Mario brothers themselves. I couldn't preview the design since it was custom-made, but it turned out absolutely beautiful.

    Oo, well, take good care of it. I'd like to see that too. Mario's the flashy sparkly detail though rather than the base. :P I stopped wearing retainers years ago because one day, they just didn't fit properly in my mouth. I hope my underbite doesn't come back in 30 years lol.

    My brother and I got a new bunk bed, complete with Super Mario Odyssey-themed bedsheets! The new mattress is super comfy, too!
    I have finally bested Champion's Road in Super Mario 3D World!

    Can't wait to do it again with Luigi, Peach, Toad, and Rosalina

    I felt like I can only beat it with Peach, so what I basically did was to use multiple controllers and call the characters when I reached the end to make them touch the flagpole.

    Thank you for reading.

    I was determined to beat it with Mario, with no outside power-ups or multiplayer.

    I paid the price with 600+ deaths.
    You can delete your own threads now...!

    Time to destroy the deepest darkness of my forum posting past!
    Direct is over. Biggest highlight for me was Super Kirby Clash, followed by the SNES games.

    Although in terms of the latter, I'm a bit surprised that Kirby 3 is a launch game and not Super Star. But whatever, Kirby 3 is still great and I'm looking forward to the game's official portable debut!

    Update: I'm at The Final Battle, at Level 55. The recommended level is 58 so I'll be attempting it once I reach that.

    In terms of gear, Sword Hero and Hammer Lord have Rarity 12, Beam Mage has Rarity 11, and Doctor Healmore has Rarity 9.

    Have you ever dabbled in Party Quests? There's another list of quests and missions that would really help in accruing Apples and Experience. If you play online you would likely find other people with great gear to make clearing levels faster.

    If you haven't already, I would like to suggest the Adventurer's Codex, since it rewards an extra Apple per volume (so for example, getting Volume III gives 3 apples each time).

    Thank you for reading.

    I've been keeping up with Party Quests too. The recommended levels are rather high so I try to reach those before playing them, but the extra EXP from online really helps, and especially when combined with an EXP Orb.

    As for Codexes, I've been getting my fair share of those too. I have Volume 3 of the Codex of Vigor, Volume 3 of the Sword Hero Codex, and a few other codexes that I can't name off the top of my head. I hadn't seen the Adventurer's Codex, though. I should check that out.

    The extra apples from my level 3 tree really help.
    Less than 1 hour before the Direct! Can't wait to see SNES games officially announced (this is definitely the time, Nintendo)!

    GameCube VC definitely needs to happen. Thing is that if Nintendo's even going that far with Switch (we can only hope) they'd have to go through the consoles in between, so at least SNES is one step closer!

    Someone tell me how to beat the True Arena in Kirby Super Star Ultra. I need to know

    So, I've actually made it to Marx Soul, and was even pretty close to beating him, although he struck me down first. Hammer might me my new favorite ability. The toughest part about it is the fact that the air attack has no invincibility frames, so I had to get a real feel for Kracko's attack patterns before defeating him effectively. I've gotten quite a bit of use out of Hammer Flip too (that fire charge move), particularly against Whispy Woods and Wham Bam Jewel; with strategic use you can actually perform the move safely, and it helps mow down bosses quite a bit.

    But by far the most helpful move I've used is Hammer Spin. Those invincibility frames are just killer.

    Hey, I've finally beaten the True Arena! Thanks, guys!

    I still haven't gotten 100% yet (need a lot more tresasures in GCO as well as seven more abilities in MWW), but ultimately that's not too far away!

    Is that so? They should have been enabled then my life would be so much easier as a result
