    Chain attacks have two uses. One, the more level 3 specials you use, the stronger the enemy becomes. At some point you have to 'clean up' before it gets out of hand.
    And second, with unique bosses, well, it helps if you can remove half its lifebar in a single turn. They can get nasty otherwise.

    To chain, you have to press + when the team bar is full (and you have done a few Lv3 specials to create elemental orbs around the enemy), and then play some pokémon-style "destroy the orbs by using blades of the opposite element". It... takes a while to get going, sadly, but it's something you have to learn. You have to use it at one point.

    By then COVID should be mostly contained with all the vaccines hopefully! You're gonna have so much fun :D Ireland seems like an amazing place to live tbh... but I want to experience so many places in general lol

    Yeah same. I always can't think properly when I'm anxious and it stinks. Mine started developing around my early 20s so it took a while too. Getting diagnosed is a great step for sure and I'm glad it helped you, but in my case realizing that this was actually a mental health issue made me feel even more ashamed/embarrassed. Even though I knew there wasn't anything to be ashamed about. It was just so tough to feel like there was something wrong with me.

    Mostly bad oils that are unhealthy for you and an insane number of salt, more than what people need. Other things too but I'm not good enough with the terminology to know how to explain it well. But food that's too greasy/fried with too much oil, overly salty, or deep fried (french fries, chicken nuggets, nachos to name a few) never tends to be good and should always be had in moderation (or better yet not at all, but I know that's hard for people ahah). They increase risk of heart attack and many other problems if you keep having them regularly.

    we didn't see them but saw bunches of other stuff at the animal parks/reserved we went to on our trip recently! Elephants, tigers (including a white tiger :D), warthogs, hyenas, hawks, lions, honey badges, snakes, and other cool stuff! I saw hippos last when I was in Kreuger national park, which was like 2 years ago almost.

    finally back! was on a road trip across the southern coast of south africa, sorry for slow replies!!!

    and awww I understand. ;_; Needles are tough and so many people get anxious around them, even to the point of passing out and stuff. I was terrified of them for ages too. Nowadays am more calm, so perhaps over time that will happen to you too? either way if not, that's completely fine and nothing to be ashamed about! I don't get particularly nervous about them anymore but some of my face/neck does get red on instinct lol, and sometimes the nurses will ask me if I'm okay because of that hahaha.

    yeah, I didn't know zinc had side effects like that either. but taking it with food (and perhaps at a smaller dose if you prefer) would probably be fine! personally I don't think there's such a thing as too much water unless you drink so much you can't hold it down and get sick. I need to drink it more often tbh... I only ever drink water and tea, but still probably could drink a bit more in general throughout the day. D: oops

    good job cutting out soda!! I knew people who lost so much weight doing that, since it was almost all they drank. It's really bad for your body and teeth. always happy to see people cut it <3

    fast foods are bleh most of the time. I'll eat them occasionally, like french fries if I happen to be ordering a burger from a place if out with husband and his friends, but that's rare. 99% of the time it's mega eh. I hate the stuff it's made with. x_X

    And agreed. People definitely should have made a bigger deal about it, but the switch continues to sell ridiculously well and sadly that joycon drift issue is still present in some systems. it sucks.

    Yeah sore arm is very common it seems, most people I know get it! hope it goes away soon, grats on getting the first one \o/

    ohh yeah I think the highest amount of 'tolerable' zinc is 40mg, so 30 is definitely fine. But if you take it on an empty stomach you can definitely feel sick. I took 40mg of zinc for a while and on the first day I took it just 30 minutes after dinner since I forgot to have it with, and felt so sick I could barely sleep. Next day I tried it together with a meal and felt muuuch better. It can be overwhelming to take that much zinc at first if you're not taking it properly, but hopefully your body will be ok with it! not a doctor so idk 100%

    yeah it depends on how it's cooked, companies usually use cheaper products for theirs so it's always good to read the label to make sure all 3 of these are checked off: 1) Trans fat is listed as 0g, 2) There are no 'fully hydrogenated' oils in the ingredients, 3) there are no 'partially hydrogenated' oils in the ingredients. I try to be careful, esp in the USA, since if a product has less than .4g of trans fat, they're allowed to round down and put 0 for....some stupid reason. So I always check ingredients. Sweets from grocery stores can be especially bad too, by having bad oils and then whipped cream can also be a source of really bad trans fats! There are still many good food producers that know the risks of trans fats though and make their food free of it, just gotta find which companies they are \o/ Air fryers are good vs frying on a pan usually too, since that means you don't really need to use cooking oil (many of which are bad, a lot of people aren't educated about which ones they should/shouldn't buy..)

    and ooo I have it on Switch but mine has no drift! fortunately lol. I got mine in 2019 and the drift issues I think are more present in earlier versions??

    You don't have to pick hard for the best ending, thankfully. Game's tough enough as it is, haha. I think the Polar Star is worth carrying around that long, since you can upgrade it before the Outer Wall, and carry it for a decent while in the endgame. The tough part is just getting through the Sand Zone without the machine gun, I think, as well as the first room of the Labyrinth. Once you get through that you should be okay.

    Good to hear you've got a new appointment. I'm always happy to take advice, doesn't matter people's age. Friends who are younger than me have helped me out a bunch before. I try to stay positive the best I can, so the advice is really nice to hear, I agree with it.

    It's not really crafting. You pick up bolts (which are basically currency) and then bring them to the shop to spend them to make items. It's just a normal shop system really. The secret exits definitely aren't hidden, they're more tricky to get to (things like Centaur's requiring Rush Jet Adaptor) and I prefer them like that. It makes you think more about what order you fight bosses in instead of having to look for something. 5 having some hidden walls was cool but honestly unless you knew where they were there wasn't really any way you'd be able to find them. In 6 it's just a matter of "there's this breakable block in the way, looks like I need a power for that" and the reward for it isn't so massive to the point where you're missing out if you don't go for it. Beatless Mega Man 6 is perfectly fine.

    Oh, I'd thought you'd played through Super Paper Mario before. Yeah, it's a great time and I enjoy it a ton. The villain characters are really enjoyable and I like all of them. Have fun, if you buy Gen 1 on 3DS, I have a virtual console copy of Gold I haven't gotten around to playing, but playing Gen 1 a while ago for the first time was... an interesting experience. Not bad, just very strange.

    Congrats on beating it, I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's a game I've really started enjoying ever since I finally decided to beat it so I'm happy to see it not being overlooked. If you wanna go for the best ending, here's how you'd go about that.
    - Play the game normally up until the Labyrinth. When you cross reach the gap where Professor Booster falls, ignore him and continue to the right. If you fall down, you won't be able to make it back up unless you've got the Lv3 Machine Gun, which is why there's a save spot above where you come in. The jump across is pretty precise too without the Machine Gun, and if you wanna keep the Polar Star through the game (which I recommend you do) so just be aware of that.
    - When you reach the Core, check the very bottom of the room before the boss fight begins. There should be a sparkling object at the bottom, grab it. This is where you grab the Tow Rope so you can save Curly from drowning after the room floods without the Core keeping it powered. Once she gives you her air tank and you regain consciousness, tie the tow rope to her and escape with her to the Waterway.
    - In the Waterway, after the large room with the jellies and the water currents, bring Curly into the room at the top. Take a rest on the bed and check the computer to learn the room has a book about how to drain flooded robots. Go to the bookshelf and read the book, then drain the water from Curly. Once you're able to, make sure you take her with you. Exit the rest of the Waterway like normal. Remember to pick up the upgrade for the Polar Star back in the First Cave if you're able to. When you reach Arthur's House again, you'll receive the Booster v2.0, which you're gonna need. Helps a lot. Then continue like normal until the Outer Wall.
    - This part isn't necessary for the best ending, but it'll help. When you get to the Outer Wall, go into the door under where you enter and speak to the little people inside to learn Ms. Little's husband is missing. We're gonna trade the Blade for the Nemesis once we find him.
    - Once you're able to use the Plantation teleporter to go back to Arthur's House, head to the bottom right of the Plantation to meet with Curly, who's lost her memories again. Turns out there's a mushroom you can get to restore them, which can be found in the Mimiga Cemetary. Enter the door in the top-right and speak to the mushroom, who will ask you questions. Answer Yes, Yes, No, Yes, Yes, No. You'll receive the Mushroom Badge. Open your inventory, check the badge, and speak to the mushroom again. You'll have to fight it, and it'll be added to your inventory once you defeat it.
    - While you're in the cemetary, pick up Mr. Little near the bottom-right of the area. He'll just get added to your inventory until you bring him back to his house, where he'll offer to trade the Blade for the Nemesis.
    - Head back to Curly in the Plantation, give her the mushroom, and her memories will be restored. She'll give you the Iron Bond, which is the last item you'll need for the best ending. Continue with the game until you kill the Undead Core and the island starts to collapse.
    - While the island is collapsing and you're escaping the balcony, enter the house and you'll see a gap in the floor. Hop in to enter the Blood Stained Sanctuary and all I'll say from that point is I hope you know how to use the Spur, your missiles are at level 3, and you still have your Life Pot.

    Hopefully everything with the vaccination's gone okay, and the days in may/june aren't too bad on you as well.

    I think the decline is subjective with the series because it's just that they changed some stuff that people don't tend to agree with. The shop system was introduced in 7, where enemies drop bolts you can use to make items. In 8 bolts were no longer dropped and instead there was a set number of them you could find in different stages. 9-11 brought back the shop but they work the same way they did in 7.

    Game Gear was actually one of the other side games I did play. I was curious what it was like since I'd never played anything on the console and emulated it and it was... okay I guess. I'd really rather just play the original NES games.

    Super Paper Mario is wonderful, probably one of those really iconic childhood games for me, I hope you enjoy it.~

    Omg yeah I read today! But still, that’s such a small number. Birth control pills for women also have a clot risk and my friend was on one of the ones with a slightly higher risk than even others for 10 years, and had no issues. I’ve never had issues either. Hopefully you can get another or something soon @[email protected] millions of people have gotten these vaccines so 6 doesn’t seem like much, but still, I can understand the worry. All medication does have risks.

    It’s not so much the pizza itself but more that many food places use cheap oils that have trans fat to make them, which is horrible for people and can lead to heart attacks among other things. Same for baked products. It’s upsetting how many people don’t realize and just eat all this bad stuff, makes me so sad and I wish I could educate everyone D:

    Yeah I think new games were around 30 for the gbc, 40 for gba/ds, and now it’s a whopping 60 and consoles are at least 2x more expensive, ugh.

    Yaya Okami was good!! I got the switch ver on sale and still need to finish it though, but I did play the original on ps2 ~

    hope it goes well!! someone I know has been feeling sick from it, but their sibling felt nothing at all. it's so hard to know how it'll affect you @[email protected] I'll probably get that one too despite side effects though, one shot seems soo much better than two....

    I love pizza typically but try not to eat it much anymore. Only had it once in the last 1-2 years. A lot of it is made with bad oils, especially in the states, the kind that can lead to heart issues if consumed often enough. Every once in a while is okay though, and my fav are ones with lotsa cheese!!

    but yeah, Snap is definitely expensive. It's very pretty but I do wonder how prices are calculated now. Surely a game like SwSh has more content ultimately, especially since there are more mons to collect, but spinoffs still tend to be the same price. I'll buy it anyway but it stinks knowing salaries have hardly changed in the last 20 years, yet games went up in price $20+. oof

    (congrats on that rise, oooo!!)

    The only chocolate I like is dark chocolate
    omg twins, I thought I was the only one on the planet who preferred dark over the others ahahah
    I didn't get any discounts but it might be a few weeks after easter, so we'll keep checking over the next few weeks. Hopefully they'll have some this year T_T

    And yeah, $60 does seem like a lot for a Mystery Dungeon game... though there's a lot to do if you plan to be a completionist/do most of the post game. My bf has it so I can just play his though lol, fortunately.

    And omg I know. ;-; I understand!! I'm not scared of needles but I'm really scared of side effects. It's tough to be anxious people like us but honestly, we'll be ok. So many millions of people have gotten the vaccine already and are all perfectly fine.

    daaang, from bottom 25% to the 50%s? that's awesome!!)

    Somehow I completely forgot Beat was in Mega Man 6 as well. There are hidden boss doors for Tomahawk, Yamato, Knight and Centaur that all give you a part of Beat (B-Part, E-Part, A-Part, and T-Part) when you defeat the boss. Get all four and you unlock Beat, who's the exact same as he is in 5. The face means you've beaten the stage and it didn't have a part, and the letter means you've picked up the part in that stage. If it's just blank, you're missing a part in that stage.

    Glad to hear you should be getting the vaccine soon, the side effects from what I'm hearing are perfectly normal and a sign it's working properly, and shouldn't last too long, if that helps reassure you.

    The Plantation is probably the second biggest area in the game, second to the Labyrinth because it's so big it has to get cut up into several parts, as you know. Here's about how you go through it.
    Near the bottom left corner there should be a room with a teleporter in it. Use your Booster to fly over the water and attempt to use the teleporter. You'll end up in jail. A little bit later, you'll find a letter in your inventory. Open it up to get the password needed to progress. Once you get out of jail there should be a locked door near the middle of the Plantation you can enter with the password. Once you're inside, progression should be pretty straight-forward from there.
    Though I will say, the top part is where you'll leave the Plantation. The stuff exclusively in the best ending doesn't start until you kill the final boss for the good ending. From there you access a separate area and go through that.
    The Arms Barrier makes it so you lose less EXP for your weapons when you take damage. Super helpful for Machine Gun since it's probably the most important weapon to keep at Level 3 whenever you can. Also helpful for Super Missiles since the difference between Level 1 and Level 3 for it is staggering.

    One of my least favourite parts of Platinum is how they expand on the move tutors and make give you such good options with learning new moves, but gathering shards is still an absolute pain. Good luck with the hunt.

    The tricky thing for me is I think that X gets worse as the series progresses (with a few exceptions, I think X4 is great and X3 is better than people give it credit for) but Classic gets better as it progresses, with the exception of 8 depending on your opinion. I'd go through all of 7 and see how you feel, then start to play 8. If you get about halfway through 8 and decide you're not enjoying it much, I'd switch to playing X1-X4 and maybe X5. 9, 10, and 11 are definitely all worth sticking around for.
    X is more powerful than classic Mega Man for sure (the dash and wall jumps help contribute to that) but everything will do more damage to you in the X games, and I mentioned this before but you either need a fantastic mashing finger or have to rely on charged shots throughout the whole series. X1 has some moments that feel genuinely unfair if you don't charge your special weapons (which is available through an optional upgrade, mind you) and the series never gets better at that. It's personal preference really, but I think all the games in that SNES/PS1 era are a little tricky, and you kinda need to know what you're getting into.
    The only gameboy title I'm really familiar with is V because it's got new bosses and feels like a separate game on its own. It's one I've known about for years but never gotten around to playing it. I guess the Gameboy titles and Mega Man and Bass are games you can consider as being part of the main classic series if you really wanted to.

    Yeah, it's going well for me. Indoor dining sounds nice.~

    I think a lot of the earlier ones are easy to miss. I'd probably expect people to miss ones in the Egg Corridor and Bushlands because of the fact you need to make some pretty precise jumps to get them, ones you may not be able to make when you start playing. I was pretty sure you'd be able to go back to the Labyrinth, maybe it's accessed through the Plantation and not the teleporter at Arthur's House.
    Curly ends up dying after the fight with the Core floods the area. You run out of air and she sacrifices herself to give you her air tank so you can escape. If you've done everything necessary for the best ending up to that point, you'll be able to acquire the Tow Rope and use it to carry her out of the Core and through the Waterway. If you aren't able to get the rope, she ends up flooding in the Core and ends up dying. Basically, I think every death that happens besides King's and Toroko's is preventable by getting the best ending.
    The reward from the Twins is whatever you pick up in the chest, I believe it's a missile expansion? Since you can either leave without fighting them if you don't open the chest, or open the chest and fight them in order to leave.
    I knew someone from years and years ago who really liked the game, and my dad had heard of it and told me about the old freeware version. I played it for a little bit and didn't get too into it, but years later remembered that it was too difficult for me and I wanted to try replaying it to see if I could beat it. I got the good ending, and then a year later went back and tried the best ending, and I've been in love with it ever since. That was about 2 years ago.

    I think I know what you mean. Drifblim is more of an unorthodox tank and it doesn't really end up in the ideal situation for itself very often.

    9 was the game that went back to the NES style and it's the reason why quick swap was gone, yeah. A fun fact is that Knight Man was actually made by a fan of the series and submitted, where he then became an actual robot master in the series. I can't remember how often this was done, but I remember that at least Knight was part of this contest. There might have been more, he's just the one I remember. Shooting through his shield with his weakness is also pretty fun.
    I don't know if I'd call 6's castle stages difficult. I remember way more about the bosses than the actual castle stages themselves, but besides a weird risky jump for a secret side path in the very first one, I don't think they're too difficult. I'd probably remember them if they were.
