thanks ttyd for asking me to backtrack all around the game world for plot purposes after I already did that like five times earlier today for sidequesting purposes
I did! I liked them more than I thought I would going in, but I’d have to replay them or look at them or something to refamiliarize because it was a few months ago. Some of them were bullshit but I didn’t really expect less than that from a series of Mega Man games. I think my favourite part of any of them was the Knuckle or Arm or whatever it was that replaced the charge shot in… V? Rocket fists are radical and I’m not exactly attached to the classic charge shot, so seeing them dare to do something even a little different was nice.
In that whole Mega Manathon I got up to X3 before getting burnt out. It’s not the anniversary anymore, but I’ll probably return to the playthrough at some point because I stopped just a little bit before it really gets interesting with a lot of concurrently running series.
for some reason i figured TTYD for a longer game than it is.
I’m really glad that the thing I remembered most clearly from the second half of TTYD is exactly where the badge that makes you look like Luigi is. The rest of that chapter was a complete haze of half-remembered concepts, but not that. Never that.
Paper Mario 1 or Thousand Year Door? ‘cause in TYD, I mostly just spammed Star Power attacks.The Thousand Year Door. I use a lot of special attacks too. Sweet Treat is very useful when you’ve got barely any HP or FP in the first place so you’re likely to recover all or most of it every time. Earth Tremor is good too, but I’ve pretty much never used any of the attacks beyond the first two yet.
when I said daily progress review last night, what I really meant was every time I finish a chapter. Which I thought would be daily, but I’ve really got nothing else to do with my life but play video games.
Also, I’m having a really hard time comprehending not always putting all of your levels into badge points. That is the only thing I’ve done and I still constantly feel like I’m JUST short of enough points to put all the badges I want on. I also feel like the amount of HP I have makes the game perfectly challenging. Not a fan of having 10 FP as far in as chapter 5 though. I’ve got all these moves because I’ve equipped all these essential badges but I can barely use ‘em.
There really wasn’t a whole lot of “content” in the twilight town chapter, but I guess I liked it. For my pitiful all-BP-run wherein i’m not that great at the action commands it was a real step up in difficulty. The fact that a large portion of your time and virtually all of your idle battles are on one path back and forth is undeniably lame. It’s definitely a very style over substance chapter. There wasn’t even a lot I could uncover in and around rogueport with the powers and partner I got, which is disappointing.
I last played TTYD years and years ago when I was in high school, and didn’t finish it during the week I had rented it. I remember not liking the next chapter. I hope I was just dumb, because I’d hate for the game to break its alternating quality streak in a bad way.
7 badge points to be able to switch one of my two party members without wasting an attack is a little much and i’ve ONLY been leveling into badge points.
