    oh my god thank you for this. i'mma save this for something to listen to while i'm eating of something haha i dunno if i can see myself fully binging it all the way tho.

    wow that's some weird Gen 2 AI right there for it to make those kinds of choices. it can literally whittle you down with Stab Surf/Dragonbreath but it goes for the one move you resist? odd stuff. but hey you won! time for the pokemon league!

    Oh I didn't even think of that, I'd love to see heart to hearts between the two of them specifically, that'd be wonderful. There are definitely a bunch of different approaches to take when writing a sequel, and the one for Red Dead Redemption seems really interesting. I've heard people refer to her as "seven" because she's the seventh character to avoid spoiling anything. I thought she was really interesting, and her equipment changing her talent art was an especially fun idea. I just thought she was really hard to try fitting into a team because even though she could play a bunch of different roles, you already have the rest of the team who can fulfill those roles already. Reyn could be a good tank, Shulk and Dunban can be good physical attackers, Melia can be a good ether attacker, etc.

    For sure, it's cool to have something that you're wanting to stick to. Captain Toad is one of those games I really have to get a chance to play because it's always been on the back of my mind ever since I saw the Captain Toad levels of Mario 3D World, I got the demo for the Switch version when I got my Switch version and it's kinda always been one of those games I've wanted to play, but never my first choice for what to get.

    I watched a playthrough of Mario Sunshine years ago and I wish I remembered some parts better, because I've completely forgotten that exists in the game, it seems like Sunshine is just not optimized a lot of the time and just has weird level design that doesn't work with its physics. I know nothing about the 3D all stars version, but I remember hearing people say that's the biggest thing they wanted changed, and I hope it's better.

    I've known of the Mother games for a while, but I've never really had a chance to play them, they've never really been accessible to me. I'm sure I'll give at least Earthbound a shot whenever I'm able to.
    I'm pretty sure I got confused by a few of the tears of light on my first playthrough, but I think it isn't so bad after you know the general idea of how to get them. The one in Kakariko bothered me because I wasn't sure what buildings you could enter as Wolf Link, or if the tears were inside buildings or on top of them or what.
    I feel like I should give Majora's Mask another playthrough, so maybe whenever I'm feeling up to it...

    Thanks for giving me the space to share the story, haha. Even though I think I often seeing things as my fault, I've never really felt in the wrong with that story. I actually ended up running into the guy I'd been fighting with a couple years later, after I transferred from the previous school, and he tried to get my attention so I left without a word. The fact he still tried to find me in that new school definitely reassured me of that.
    It sounds nice to just have those people that you could spend your time with, even if you never fully stayed committed. Having any kind of group to spend your time with really wasn't something I ended up doing in high school after that whole thing happened.

    I'd love to learn to swim and I know a couple friends who can really well, I've always wanted to have a trip to the beach with them and do more than just like... look good.

    I think the amount of time I spend depends on the game I'm playing, and how many options they are/how fond I am of them. If there are a few hairstyles or something that I like a lot I'll spend more time deciding on which one I want to use. I'm pretty sure I didn't spend long on character creation in New Vegas though, because I was told I'd just never end up seeing my character's face, I think I just went with the default female character I was given.

    Go for it, I'm glad you're enjoying it. There's a bunch of things I've considered for hobbies but never really decided to go into, so it's good to focus on having fun rather than just being "good" at it.

    oh no omg... i'm not a big nuzlocke person myself. the only locke i've done was a wonderlocke in Y where i got insanely lucky except for 5/6 of my team being weak to fighting or fairy. so most of my team was like level 60 when i finished except milotic who was level 80 bc i had to use it to take out fairy and fighting mons lmfao...

    mantine is another one i want to use but corsola is just staring me in the face like :) pick me :) i'm pink :) and i sure am a sucker for pink lol also considered doing a monocolor challenge with...pink...

    lmao the only reason i know the word atoll is because i once searched for the origin of the name Bikini Bottom as Spongebob's city, and it showed a place called Bikini Atoll or something.

    also, best of luck to you mate! i see you have a really good coverage of typings (fire, water, grass, electric) in your team. granbull sadly ain't fairy type yet, but i'm sure you got tricks up your sleeve to pull a fast one on Clair hahaha.

    I did! origins was good too <3

    haven't played it still since I forgot to download it and was too anxious on the flight lol. but i'll download soon!! and give you opinions when i remember to play, ahhh

    and yeah for sure. I prefer the original too. korra does get a bit better in later books imo, but the original can never be surpassed. it made me so sad knowing a lot of the characters had passed away too ;_;

    and ty, you too!!

    I love the idea of a prologue or some kind of prequel side story with the three of them, especially because we never really get to see them together besides the opening cutscene, and we only really see what happens to them over the course of the game. It'd be cool to see them as an actual team.
    I think the Fallen Arm in general really shows a lot of character development everyone has, and everyone has such good moments there, Reyn included.

    That's really great to hear, I've known a couple people who have been hospitalized for things similar to that and I'm really fortunate they've all come out okay. It sounds like you're making wonderful progress. <3

    I remember spending a bunch of time on MK7's Rainbow Road, and it's definitely one of the ones I hear people mentioning they like a lot. I used to focus on acceleration for my kart builds but I've been playing around with trying to focus on speed more than anything else and I've been playing around with it and enjoying it. A more defensive approach to items is totally valid, even if you have better recovery, it's not something you ideally want to have to rely on.

    I believe I saw you mention Sunshine in the accomplishments thread, that was really neat. I don't remember a lot of the levels in Odyssey that well but I remember loving the wooded kingdom because of its music.
    I finished Twilight Princess for the first time about 3 years ago and I felt I was really late to the party, so it's nice we can still enjoy "older" games and still experience them for the first time, Twilight Princess has to be my favourite Zelda game actually.

    The trip took place in my 2nd year of high school, and requires a bit of background knowledge. Basically, everyone from my elementary school (since we didn't have middle school, we went straight to high) went to the same high school and we all knew each other. I wasn't very social or well-liked so I decided I'd spend my first year trying to connect with more people. I found a group in high school and things were going well, but someone else I knew from elementary was also trying to get into that group. They ended up trying to ridicule me or make me look like a bad person to everyone in that group, and a lot of our interactions just ended up being fights between him and I. Eventually I sort of just left that group because I didn't want them to have to experience that kind of thing constantly, and I stopped hanging around them entirely. When we all heard about the trip, it was for everyone in our grade, so I knew all of these people from elementary school and the people I started talking to in high school would be there, so I didn't want to go. Later, a friend from elementary who joined this circle of friends in high school with me said that they were planning to go and invited me, so I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt and agreed as long as the guy I was fighting with wouldn't be with them, because I didn't want to end up being involved in fights during the trip. Friend invited me to a group chat and we discussed our plans, then a day or two later, invited the guy I was fighting with because the guy knew I was invited and wanted to be invited because I was. I told the group I wasn't going with them and left the group chat, but I still had the ticket for myself so I ended up going. I tried to make the best of the trip and try rides so I couldn't say I dislike the park without having been there and tried it, but I ended up sneaking out of the park early and just went home on my own. I haven't really talked to anyone since, though that's probably because I was more aggressive about how I handled things back then.

    I've had a couple near-drowning experiences and I totally know what you mean, they're not very pleasant, and the main reason why I kinda have a fear of being on boats. I think we had a ride similar to that one at our local park but... yeah that'd probably scare me too.

    Having a character creator reminds me of those games like Soul Calibur 6 where people would just make their fighters look like different characters just for fun. As someone who's genuinely started playing games just because I liked the character creation, that's not a weird thing at all to enjoy. It sounds like a lot of fun.

    I do remember I went out of my way to fill the collectopedia, I thought it was such a neat side thing to do. I loved the section in the tomb mainly because of the events in the story, but it really helped me get familiar with Melia and how she works, and I think by the time I was completely done with Eryth Sea I knew I wanted to use Melia a bunch. Reyn has so many great moments in cutscenes, the button is one of the first ones I think of. He's easily the funniest character overall to me and he's got so much charm.

    I'm glad to hear it's been better for you! I don't really have any kind of diagnosis and I partially wish I did, because probably since I started high school it's been a lot of trying to learn everything on my own, and I think I've only started to see more success since last year. Physical symptoms are something I hear everyone gets, but I don't really think I've felt them much, or maybe I just haven't noticed. I've always had a tendency to overthink things way too heavily, and it's easily the biggest struggle for me, since it'll feel like I'm just making my own problems. It's really good to find any way you can feel comfortable talking about everything, even if it's not in person, and occasionally I find myself bringing it up if it's relevant to a discussion I'm in, usually only online, though.

    While I don't think it's a popular opinion, my favourite Rainbow Road is MK8's, I'm so familiar with it, I feel confident racing on it, and I love the "space station" portions of the track and the music, how everything's a lot more... mechanical?
    Super Mario Kart seems like it'd be so strange to go back to, with how different the camera perspective and track layouts are compared to modern Mario Kart. The AI trickery sounds like it'd make things interesting while playing, but still pretty frustrating. The tracks being thin is something I've always thought while playing the SNES tracks they bring back in newer games, and something is just... really different about them compared to any other game, besides maybe Super Circuit.

    Mario Odyssey seems like a fantastic game. I borrowed it from a friend for a while because I'd gotten my Switch around that time and didn't have much to play on it, and I got through most of the game. I had a fun time, but I feel like I'd like to spend more time on it so I can fully understand how the game works, things like movement options or finding more moons or just experiencing more of the game.
    I've always thought Breath of the Wild was a wonderful game, just not a great Zelda game. I love the ideas it had to change the series and I love the idea of it being open-world, but I think it took too much away from the original formula, which made it feel like I just wasn't playing a Zelda game most of the time.

    I don't have too big of a fear of heights but I'm still somewhat affected by it and it's mainly why I'm not a huge fan of theme parks like that. I went to one for a school trip and I just generally had a rough time (there's a whole story about that I could get into), but I'm glad I got to go and try it out and decide for myself if it was the kind of thing I enjoyed or not. I think I'm the opposite, I can't really swim well but I feel like I'd really waterslides. The fear is valid though, and yeah, everyone kinda has their thing. As long as you're still enjoying yourself.

    You're welcome! I'm not sure what specifically I can recommend, because what you're currently watching doesn't seem similar at all to the kind of shows I watch (mainly slice of life, comedy, or idol shows) but I think anime is that kind of thing where it's so broad that everyone has shows they can enjoy. Finding anything where you just enjoy sitting and listening to dialogue sounds so nice, and I've had those experiences before. I'm a pretty imaginative person and just hearing people speak or ambience gives me a lot of enjoyable thoughts. A lot of pleasant thoughts come from just being in a voice call with my boyfriend and hearing him type on his keyboard.

    spinda is a fun pokemon!! i haven't used one since i was a kid tbh and i've kind of been itching to use one soon. might have to do another RSE playthrough after i finish my current emerald challenge lol

    i haven't been playing it Much lately bc i picked up a random challenge in emerald, but i was exploring new areas bc i got access to surf. like i went down to get lapras in union cave last friday and i was just kind of grinding up in there. i'm trying to evolve that togepi and pupitar is...slow to level up lol. and yeah corsola is cute!!! i have been wanting to use that one too but i always talk myself out of it and into a different water type or something that comes up sooner. tbh i like using pokemon whether they're "good" or not like what's more appealing to me is aesthetics and diverse movepools.

    what i love to do is catch a female zubat and name her Edna. she'll be my main flying mon for the rest of the journey. i honestly don't know where i came up with that name, it just randomly came to me in an old Black/White 2 nuzlocke run I tried (everyone died by the 3rd E4 sadly bcs I suck) and the name stuck.

    really cool name for your zubat tho! i was thinkin Crovid, since y'know the virus originated from bats lol.

    for happiness boosting, you could also grind out sprout tower if you haven't yet. good place to farm weak bellsprouts.

    That's something I never knew, being able to choose between the soundtracks. I think for side quests I sort of just did whichever ones I ended up picking up as I went through the main story, I don't remember often going out of my way for them unless I knew ahead of time that they were important or offered something helpful. The idea of rolling back levels is really neat and going into the final boss with level 1s sounds hilarious, though I never really found my level to be a problem while going through the game, so I doubt it'll be a thing I'd end up using.
    I'm not really sure what I've got but music can help sometimes and it especially did during school. Things are better than they were then, and I hope you're doing well too.

    I've actually never tried time trials in MK8, maybe I should give it a shot. I've always enjoyed Royal Raceway too, I got really excited when I heard they were bringing it back.
    Conventions are a lot of fun but I haven't gone to too many in my life, anime is something I've only started to get more into recently. I'd say just pick something that a lot of people know about and see how you like it, and then discover what kind of genres you like from there. I feel like a lot of the popular Shounen anime have hundreds of episodes and feel really hard to get into. There are a lot of currently popular 12-episode seasonal anime where I'm sure you can find your thing if you're interested.

    Galaxy 2 was something I figured I'd look into buying once I finished the first game, and since I dropped the first game it wasn't something I ever ended up doing. It's on that list of games that I'd definitely like to try out, if that makes sense.
    I think I saw one blindfolded run of Punch-Out and it's what introduced me to blind speedruns as a whole, it's such a neat idea and it's really impressive.

    I've never been on many vacations like that, but my boyfriend sent me a lot of pictures or videos from his trip to Disney last year and it's kinda made me want to go. I'm not really that into parks like that, but it looked really interesting and I'm sure I'd love to see more, it sounds like you had a great experience.~

    I think it's best to just find the times you prefer and feel used to. My sleep schedule fluctuates but I do enjoy being awake during the late evening/early morning because I'm just slightly tired, and I'm usually awake from being with friends or talking to my boyfriend or something like that. Usually the best part of the day for me.~

    That looks absolutely beautiful, wow. I think if Xenoblade needed anything in a remaster it was better graphics and an updated soundtrack and I'm happy it got both (for the most part). I'm really familiar with the Xenoblade soundtrack and I kinda credit it with getting me through high school sometimes since there were a lot of songs I'd listen to in class to help with anxiety and they would either be from Xenoblade or Sun and Moon. I like all the songs everyone usually answers with (Unfinished Battle, Guar Plains, You Will Know Our Names) but I listened to a lot more of the relaxed tracks, like Refugee Camp, Makna Forest, and Fallen Arm, my favourite either has to be the daytime version of Satorl Marsh (which I think is incredibly underrated) or Refugee Camp.

    I think that makes us about the same age? I remember Mario Kart 7 wasn't my first game in the series but it was the one I've probably played the most of, and I did a lot of time trial attempts and even signed up for a tournament at a convention once, even though I played next to no online and had no experience playing against actual people. ;;
    I definitely have those tracks I forget about, but I'm a big fan of Bone-Dry Dunes. Playing 200cc is always a really enjoyable time, I imagine most people don't know how to control it consistently and you'd either get a good run for your money, or it'd be entertaining. We all have those ones we dread being picked when playing online though.

    It's good Mario Galaxy left a good impression on you, since it's one of those games that has a lot of interesting ideas because the idea of being on disconnected planets and changing gravity allows for a lot of creativity.
    If Punch-Out is available on the Switch I may have to give it a shot.~ Seeing people like speedrunners being able to quickly beat those parts you always get stuck on is always gonna be one of those surprising things for me, it's made me consider picking up speedrunning for a few games but I've never really seriously decided to.

    I feel like a family vacation is one of the worst places to be when finding out about the whole outbreak. It's good that it sounds like people seemed to take some sort of action right away. I'm thankful it hasn't been too big of a burden to deal with myself, and I'm glad you're doing alright through it.

    My sleep habits usually go all over the place, I think I have a consistent schedule and then I'll have a night like last night where I'm awake until 6am and wake up at noon. I find myself usually waking up anywhere from 10am to noon, and I'm not able to go to sleep earlier than midnight like I'd like to some nights. So if there's any advice I end up giving people sometimes it's to have a better sleep schedule. I'm with you in terms of feeling fatigued when waking up late, it's strange how that works out.~

    thank you!! i really like trying to put together fun teams and i love seeing what other people come up with. ledian is so underappreciated. like i know it's not the greatest pokemon but it's just so fun to use esp in gen 2 with easy access to ice and thunder punch.

    oh lucky... i started this file a year or so ago and i'm already past that part. i got. an igglybuff i think but it wasn't shiny. i got a shiny one in a playthrough yeeears ago tho so that was fun.

    I feel the same about wanting to go back to it, having someone to actually talk to about Xenoblade makes me want to play Definitive Edition a lot more now. A lot of things in the game seem like they'd take more than one playthrough to understand, gem crafting included.
    The 3DS is such a great system and it feels more like the system I grew up on than the Gamecube, DS, or Wii, since I was constantly getting new games for it and was spending a lot of my time on it. I've since lost my N3DS and only have an original model, so the Switch is where I have to end up looking for SNES games and Xenoblade...

    You make a really good point about them being free, and I think it's just something for people to go out of their way to add modern features. It's something I imagine would make your ROM hack stand out, but not necessary, and it seems like some fans still really enjoy those "retro" mechanics.
    I've really never been big into TV at all, but there are certain shows I've considered watching every so often, it's cool to have those things that you find new interest in through this period, I think that's awesome.

    That actually sounds really cool, it'd be like if I was playing a game and walked into the aquarium here I've frequented often. It seems pretty fascinating to be able to recognize those things especially.

    My old computer used to be like that in terms of being unable to play even flash games without lag, but thankfully I've got a better one now.
    The Star cup is easily the best in the entire game for me, because basically every course is such a good one, even if I'm not the biggest fan of Dolphin Shoals. 150cc does feel easy to me, but I think it's more because I'll just play 200cc on my own whenever I pick up the game. Online is brutal, but I feel like online Mario Kart has always been brutal, which is why I just love playing with friends, since they're either on my level or behind...~

    I've never played Punch-Out, and maybe I should get on that. Though I have played Mario Galaxy and it somehow completely slipped my mind. It was one of those games where I got far enough to the point where I could finish it, then wanted to complete it by getting every star, and then stopped playing shortly after. I played it in 2018 and I felt so awkward going to a games store to buy such an old game since I've never played it...
    Majora's Mask was that game I played to 100% it and then never again, so I don't really remember much of that experience, but I remember I did spend quite a bit on it. I'm pretty sure I used guides to look for the stray fairies because I just didn't want to have to search for them myself...

    In high school I had the choice of morning or afternoon classes, so I tried both and settled on morning classes. It'd been a while since I was sleeping through the day like that, so I just wanted to keep a better schedule.
    I don't even remember how I found out about the situation, though I'm sure it was sudden in general for a lot of people. I do remember my parents telling me there was a potential lockdown, and I sat there thinking it wasn't really like anything I'd ever experienced before. The whole thing is kinda still like that for me. I don't have any outright negative thoughts about it since I'm fortunate it hasn't impacted me much, but it's such a big experience that it's not really something you can just ignore.
    Hope you're getting through it alright.~
