Attempted the pit twice since my last post. I made it to level 92 on my first attempt and 97 on my second. It's pretty brutal making it so far only to die, but hopefully I'll have better luck tomorrow. Oh yeah, and the pit is really good for coin and level grinding, I even got 100 Star Points in a single battle near the end.
so i know that right now im getting close to the timeskip. I finished the woods map where you fight kronya and solon (also where byleth goes supersaiyan), and rn im preparing as much as possible before the timeskip. I managed to recruit ignatz and felix, and i even recruited ingrid a while back. funny thing is, every unit i recruit from another house is stronger than any of my regular units, even stronger than edelgard, which is saying something. So yeah things are gonna get wild next time i play
And my Paper Mario journey goes onward into its third leg...complete with 15-minute introductory cutscenes, really awkward jump physics, and a Mario game that feels very much un-Mario. The three nagging issues that really marred my first experience with the game. But I remember I enjoyed it a lot more towards the end, so I'm sticking with it. Even if Chapter 2 is going to be a pain.
EDIT: Beat Chapter 2. I hate 2-3 with a passion but I guess it was alright aside from that. Also I'm fully convinced that the "which Merlee" question is rigged because I swear I chose the other Merlee last summer and I got it wrong both times
While I was away from here, I actually got Yoshi's Crafted World and I completed it.
I haven't fully completed it because of the boss challenges, but I have gotten every craft and sprout.
It was a quite good game, with very creative levels, but I could see some people getting annoyed by the crafts.
The costumes were really cool and the style, while used in other games before, was great.
The lowest point of the game though, is the music, because it's all just the same annoying noises and not as good as other Yoshi games.
The game is still good, so I'm still fine with it either way.
Beat Chapter 3, and man...this is still the best chapter in the game by a long shot. Francis is easily the best OC in the game, and Bowser is gloriously overpowered and fun to play. Also love seeing Bowser hate on all the villains, after all, he's the only one that matters!
Also I enjoyed walking straight over the SMB 1-2 replica into the warp zone...and was then disappointed when I didn't go to World 4.
Chapter 3 is the greatest alright, but the castle's pretty barren. Actually the whole game feels sort of barren with the enemies. Also the fight with Francisco is easy, even if the dating sim is enough to compensate.
But maid cat robot enemies is so amazing. There's also a Hatsune Miku poster somewhere in there wtf. I still want to read Cyborg Wart too.
Funny I only loaded the game up to try out this in-development N64 emulator for the New 3DS I found in a video and I ended up playing for about an hour or so.
Game actually runs pretty decently on this still early emulator too. Outside of some framerate issues on the title screen and occasional minor graphical bugs (text is sometimes shaded weirdly and the whole 'portrait of Peach that becomes a portrait of Bowser' doesn't work), game runs at a nice 30 fps.
Does feel a bit weird to be playing the original version of Mario 64 on my 3DS and not the lesser but still decent DS version tho!
started this game last night and it's amazing, i don't think it will beat BIS as i do have a lot of nostaliga for that game, but it might beat SSS, but i'll have to beat it to any% before i'm sure. i like the story, and whilst i do usually prioritise having new characters and all i like what they did with the baby characters and a younger toadsworth. and the shroob thing feels hella dark. gameplay is interesting too with the babies. graphics feel a lot like BIS which is nice and the music is cool too. so is it my favourite M&L not at all but do i like it, yes, very much.
Assassin's Creed 2 is great, but I can't take the characters seriously when they speak English with an Italian accent. Sword combat also feels clunky and I like to just mash the attack button with those hidden dual blades.
These guys probably all saw how much deaths Raymond Travkin was racking up and decided to compete against him.
(Though to be fair for the Recaredo, I deliberately humiliated him to death and wrecked his love life by making Wario flirt with his spouse. Even though Recaredo blatantly rejected the flirts, it still caused his spouse to get pissed at him. The other two guys, I didn't kill them, they killed themselves by trying to repair electronics while electrocuted. Sometimes, Sims really do want to kill themselves lol.)
Beat Chapter 6...er, I mean I played through it until the game threw me out. My experience from last summer was enough for me to know that actually completing this chapter is the most difficult challenge in the entire game. But this is definitely where the story really picks up, even if those empty squares in the chapter menu still pester me to this day.
