Eh.
I'm actually lazy when it comes to gaming, sometimes.
I got to the final bosses in like January 2019 and never continued. Until today.

Except SMTDS2. I reached the Polaris boss more recently than that.

Was going to play SuperJaw100's Code Warfare but it wouldn't load so I played Battle Spire Challenge and managed to get to The Doctor and Misery fight before dying. I'm currently playing Vion Ierra and am enjoying it. I hope Charlie will finish it and release it someday.

Goal: Have fun with Charlie and my friends (also ask questions about the Aeonian Night).

On 26 August 2020, I finally cleared "Dragon Quest IV" (DS).

Just half an hour prior to this post, I cleared "Nostalgia" (DS) as well.

I've been making it a point to play some of Charlie's old mods. So far I've now cleared Curse of Il'landriiel which was short. I liked the custom tiles (though it's a shame most of the areas lead to nothing) though I wasn't happy with how the mod makes you fight the Undead Core (as a demo ending) after an already difficult boss fight, (I ended up altering the script to add <LI+ so I'd be healed before the Doctor Phase 2 and Undead Core fights).


Shadow of the Stars however has been pretty fun thus far. Granted my only gripe so far was that the second level's tiles all look the same (so I ended up recolouring the background tiles to darken them). Also having the main character go to the CSTSF just to ask Noxid for rubidium was hilarious (I laughed when Noxid's character picture came up because he's so goth). I also appreciate the idea of bosses having multiple health meters (even if the boss fights were easy). After completing Shadow of the Stars, I'll be playing Shane's Cave Story.

I played INMOST on Friday night. It's a kind of a puzzle platformer. It looked like a metroidvania from the trailer, and I suppose it kind of is I guess.

I like how moody and atmospheric it is, the music's good, the world seems really cool and there are some awesome moments. However, that's overshadowed by all the really slow walking segments which get tiresome, the confusing and pretentious story, the mediocre puzzles and the fact that the controls can't be remapped.


My biggest gripe is that it has a serious problem with "show, don't tell", in a certain sense -- often, when something important happens, the game will rip control away from the player and launch into a cutscene. This gets really glaringly bad at the end.



I was unimpressed by the metroidvania aspect too -- the main character, the wanderer (I think that's what he's called) starts out really underpowered, which is to be expected for metroidvanias, but the problem is he stays underpowered for the whole game, you never feel like the world opens up. The second playable character, the girl (who I think is supposed to be the wanderer's granddaughter, or something like that, like I said the story's confusing and pretentious) is even more underpowered. The third character, the knight, has access to more abilities, but unfortunately that seems to exclude jumping.


Not all the puzzles were bad, though -- I really liked the endless hallway thingy, I felt super dumb for not figuring that one out sooner. Several puzzles involved getting rid of some monster in some clever way, most of those were quite interesting as well.


5/10


In more positive news, today I got this in the first level of Celeste -- it's 2nd place:

@King - I think that was Noxid's avatar at the time.

Hoo boy, if you love pretentious story writing then I'm sure that you've heard of YIIK: The Post-Modern RPG? Much like Sonic 06, the music is the best part of the game though at least Sonic 06 wasn't pretentious in it's own story.


@King - I think that was Noxid's avatar at the time.

And it's glorious. His avatar was so unexpected that I must spent several minutes laughing before getting on with the mod.

So over the week I managed to:
Finally complete The Bouncer's Survival Mode as Dauragon C. Mikado (Awakened) and unlocked Sion's Jet Black costume for Vs Mode.

Complete The Legend of Dark Witch's Normal Mode as Zizou (with all upgrades and Syega Crystals) and will be completing Lunatic Mode.

Complete Cave Story's Boss Attack mode and will consider doing a second playthrough to unlock Curly Story.

This is a custom level, but I'm still happy with it, managed to get under 3 minutes which is really cool.

So I decided to replay Dark Spirits (a DSi game I have on 3DS) and managed to get past the third loop (which was pretty hard) and have now made it to 4-1. The final boss on the 4th loop uses the attack patterns from the last 3 loops (1-5, 2-5 and 3-5) except he takes less damage once you destroy all 4 of his gems. I've yet to defeat that boss and the game doesn't have a level select so I'd have to make it to that boss all over again.
