    I'm not entirely sure how linux works myself. It was simple enough to install, and it lets me run windows applications. If your interested I could send a screenshot of the program. Uh also kind of curious about why you mentioned cave story not being worth the price. It's fairly cheap. Also, my mother randomly handed me a $8 visa gift card. She said she had purchased everything she was interested in with it, so I could have the rest.

    I also loved the DS remake and spent so many hours on it. I admit I'm not a huge kirby fan, but I was a huge fan of SuperStar Ultra. My favorite modes were the True Arena and Helper to Hero. I beat the true arena using the power that makes kirby crash down as a stone. I sort of want to play it again, but if I'm going to buy a kirby game I'd rather play a modern one. (maybe triple deluxe). Did you mean that it was tedious to get 100% in planet robobot? Nope, I have not heard of Tetris Attack. I've never been a tetris person, but I did play Tetris 99 on a switch for a bit. Isn't Puzzle de Pon the switch game that's in Japanese? Because I opened something like that and immediately closed it. Have you ever seen competitive fortnite? That's another insane thing. It's like the players are building cities. Also I think they did the same thing for Link's Awakening. I recall the yoshi doll being in that game, and the chain chomp and goombas. If I haven't mentioned it, link's awakening was previously my favorite zelda game.

    Is there a recommended level to start with in 5? I'm not making any progress. I tried Charge Mans stage but kept getting worn down by the chicken enemies. Usually I can pinpoint which boss looks the least threatening (like cut man or top man), but not this time. Also you were right, the charge buster looks way cooler. Are you interested in trying the Mega Man X games at some point?

    How much time did you spend with colony 6? It's probably my favorite part of xenoblade. I really like seeing it turn from rubble into a city. It's not so much of a grind since I try to fill the collectopedia in every area before I leave. Yeah I can only recall one ice section, but I died on it over and over. Also I'm not sure what danganronpa is either, and google isn't being specific. I'm not sure how exactly among us rose in popularity, but random trends seem to just happen. For a while there was fidget spinner toy craze, and like we were talking about, pokemon go. It makes you wonder what the next big thing will be. Some stuff seems to surpass being a trend, for instance fortnite remains popular. Overwatch kind of fizzled out, but I remember that being talked about all the time. Sunken Ship is pretty late into it. I believe it's just monster town after that, then nimbus land, and volcano to end game. Every time we discuss a game or something, I start craving to replay it. I have an actual cartridge of Super Mario RPG, but it has a poor internal battery and deletes save files sometimes. Your subscription is probably way better than crunchy roll. Honestly our family has a bunch of subscriptions (Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Snackle). But it's sort of split. Like, my sister pays for disney+ where she lives, but we all have the account, so it's like a family thing.

    I wonder if it's just a me thing, but when I'm playing something like chess I always mute the other person immediately. I can't concentrate on a game like this and read messages at the same time. Especially because you know, sometimes online people can get a bit toxic. (even on chess websites).

    Do you ever feel like your mind picks out things to dwell on? Sometimes it feels like there could be nothing wrong, but I'll still feel "off" like I did something wrong. I admire how you could deal with this so well, because I feel like there's a mental block. Like it's really hard to get started on anything. And during the rare moments I start doing something it's not instant satisfaction. I'd just rather go back to doing nothing. Also thanks for sharing. I'm sort of the opposite. When I'm done with something I quickly try to find something else. Sometimes you find something so good it feels like the next thing won't be able to compare. I felt this way after finishing xenoblade and trying final fantasy 10. It's relatable what you mentioned about thinking about the scenes during class. I was watching a movie today, and of all things I got zoned out thinking about chess openings. Such a strange thing to zone out about, but it happened. My first avatar on pokecommunity was crobat, since that's one of my favorite pokemon. It makes sense picking your favorite characters and themeing around them.

    I'm always some what late on joining these fandoms. Right now I'm binging these marvel films I never watched, and I was 10 years late to breaking bad. It is always impressive seeing fan-art though. I believe pokecommunity has a forum for it if your interested. I have "art" on my profile but it's hardly art. I literally just scribbled stuff into microsoft paint.

    I managed to get linux back on my computer, so I can probably get cave story running. I actually had a few dollars in my steam wallet, but I gifted something for my brother. I thought about buying cave story on steam, but no I'd rather just play it for free. Linux is also taking up a lot of GB. My computer is 32gb, and it takes about 8. (kills my battery a bit faster than usual). But yeah 23 avenger movies about the characters, and 4 of those are actually the characters fighting together. After I type this up i'm going to watch iron man 3.

    I actually played Kirby Superstar earlier this year. I made it to the Milky Way Galaxy levels...i think that's what it was called. The place you had to collect power-ups. I never finished. At this point I'd probably just restart. Honestly I think my favorite kirby game is Kirby's Adventure. Occasionally I load that and just run through the game in one sitting. There's some tricky parts, like mr. shine and mr. bright. I actually find these games moderately challenging, so I don't really understand kirby being for beginners. I haven't played any modern kirby games though, so I could be wrong. I've seen Panel de Pon but I have no idea what that is. I'm assuming a puzzle game.

    I started Mega Man 5. My first impression is this game feels perfected. It's amazing to play an NES game that looks like it could be an indie throwback game made today. It's vibrant and I already love the bosses. I immediately jumped into "Starman". Made it to him easily but wasn't doing enough damage. I also tried "Crystal Man" and couldn't get past the falling rocks. I'm assuming the barrier is starman and he's going to be strong agaisnt crystal man. Also is this the game you mentioned has the train level? Oh and I didn't know that about toadman. These tidbits are actually really interesting, so thanks for sharing when you do. I assumed it was just an RNG thing.

    When you mentioned 100k my immediate thought was "really, that's it"? I can't imagine that lasting longer than Prison Island. I'm slightly tempted to pick up my save, but I also bought the digital version so I would have to reinstall. Not sure how long I could play before getting burnt out again. If I haven't mentioned it, I stopped on the ice mountain. I also got tired of those sledding parts, my characters would fall and lose every bit of HP. There's also enemies that float in the air that I can never seem to reach. The area was pretty, but there's parts I wasn't enjoying. Luckily I don't think you ever have to go back.

    You mentioned not finishing stuff after years. If you were to go back, are you someone who would restart, or try to pick up where you left off? It must be amazing to develop a game and have it blow up. For example, the creators of Among Us didn't except the game to become so popular. It was released a while before it's popularity. I never played it myself, but I also turned almost exclusively towards single player stuff. The idea looked cool and I watched some stuff on YouTube. Speaking of YouTube, have you heard of YouTube TV? It's a streaming service similar to Netflix/Hulu. Except it's a ridiculous $65 per month. We were subscribed, but they just keep raising the price. That's actually why we ended up with Disney+ instead. (Which is only $7 per month).

    Thanks for the conversation about chess. I've been playing it again today, and subscribed for a premium trial on chess.com. (let's you face customized bots, do puzzles, get feedback on your games). My interest has been rekindled, even if this is just temporary. I even won a game with 0 blunders.

    I wish that wasn't so relatable. (With what you mentioned about dwelling on something that happened, or what others said). But yeah it's similar to what I've been doing. Just drowning myself in movies, and chess again. I can't even express how rough it is, so I'm sorry to hear you've dealt with it for so long. I really hope it's just something that passes, since it progressively has gotten worse. Classes start soon but I keep thinking "what's the point". What do you do when you finish a series such as love live? I love these marvel movies, but eventually I'll run out.

    Sorry this won't be a full response (fatigued), but I thought I would log on to mention the conversation we had inspired me to play chess again. (well, just one game to be honest).

    ...I was incredibly sloppy and blundered 6 times. But I actually won. It's nice knowing I haven't completely forgotten everything. And I had fun doing the match.

    I just finished watching Thor. I loved every bit of it. But yeah there's four avengers movies. Each avenger hero has about 3 or 4 of their own movies. Disney+ lists them in timeline order, so i've just been going through them that way. I never read comics, and it's why I wasn't interested in the movies. Turns out these are understandable without the comics.

    Link to the Past is on Nintendo Switch online. I'm not enjoying the service. Games seem to be added once in a blue moon, and I try to be patient and wait. Particularly with earthbound. But I can just emulate these games on our wii within 5 minutes. I subscribed to PS now and it has over 950 games (some of which are recent PS4 releases). It put things into perspective. I toxic stall sometimes, because it's actually a very good strategy. In emerald I sometimes use cradily with ingrain, toxic, and protect. I used a Bronzong when I played platinum, and accidentally had heatproof instead of levitate. I regret that so much, but was too stubborn to switch. Levitate is definitely better. Have you done any nuzlocke runs of platinum? I tried once, and failed at the elite four. I don't do them often though.

    I have no idea how anybody could beat wily without blowing up the drill bomb. The attacks just kept bouncing off. Also I forgot to mention, but is ring man just ridiculous powerful or something? Every time I fought a boss, my first guess is ring man. And half the time I'm correct. The boss rush was rough. Dive Man and Ring Man guaranteed I was losing most of my health. I used Toad Man and Pharaoh Man as free health spots. (Because you can freeze Pharaoh and he can't touch you). Skull Man kept rushing me down, I couldn't ever seem to predict Drill Man. I was actually doing this over and over, for about two hours. Bright Man was the worst. I have no idea how you avoid him. Are the hidden pathways required, or is it for an optional reward like the balloon? I actually forgot to save after getting the balloon, so I didn't have it in the final stages. Not sure if I would have gotten use out of it, because I primarily used the jet. Jet seemed a bit weaker because you couldn't steer freely, it pushed you in a single direction. I'm guessing this will be the new standard? It's like Dr. Light downgraded his rush jet.

    Yes, I understand that. I remember starting at sword valley, dickson would sell you equipment that let your entire party harm mechon. Suddenly it just came back to me. I found it difficult to keep track of equipment in this game anyways. Reyn and Dunban would be well equipped, and sharla would still be wearing stuff from Makna Forest. Did you ever run into issues with money? Because I did all the side quests, and found myself struggling to get the best equipment for everybody while keeping Colony 6 upgraded. I never understood what Xord was saying until I looked up his quotes online. Turns out he likes to repeat "It feels like a fly bit me". He was an interesting villain, so I hoped he would be reoccurring. I have to look up that trailer, but I think your referring to the Colony 9 attack? I don't remember this game killing off many characters. Thankfully. It would have been heartbreaking if they did something like killing Reyn.

    Sometimes even when I like a series, I just randomly stop watching and can't pinpoint why. I was watching a let's play of Xenoblade 2. I was around episode 30, and turning it on just became sleep inducing. Which is weird because I enjoyed the characters. It hasn't happened with marvel yet. I've found these movies captivating. I started Legend of Korra and only made it to episode 6. I hope he takes his time with Deltarune. I imagine he's getting a lot of comments and emails asking him about it. At the same time, he hasn't made any updates. So it makes me wonder if development is still going. I remember one developer stating the pressure for a sequel caused him to feel burnt out. Speaking of this, what do you think of flash going down? It's been a big deal recently, since it's the end of an era for many websites of the past two decades. Epic Battle Fantasy was a good series which could rival most console JRPG's. I'm sad that won't be as available, but luckily it's still on steam I think.

    I admire magnus and other professional players for the amount of stamina they have. Games can up to 8 hours in length. I feel exhausted after a 20 minute casual game. If your interested, there's a short clip of microsoft founder Bill Gates challenging magnus and getting completely destroyed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84NwnSltHFo. Wait, that's really funny and ironic how the card game had a disgusting power creep. Considering the actual games had the same disgusting power creep. Mega Rayquaza was already in the ubers tier, which is basically a place to banish pokemon that are too strong. It was too strong among the banished pokemon, and went up into it's own tier.

    So I mentioned I might have something to ask. How do you handle thoughts that bring low moods? Also I was clumsy and accidentally deleted this entire message. But luckily I saved it because when I've been writing a while I make it a habit to copy into my clipboard.

    I'm trying to get through all the avengers arc movies, i've only watched 5 so far, and there's 23 total. Sometimes they get lengthy, almost always 2 hours and the longest one goes above 3 hours.

    I believe it does tell you about the sail, but I was also playing the game half heatedly and kept mashing through the dialogue. As far as Zelda games go, i'm interested in playing A Link to The Past. I don't enjoy the 2D titles as much though, aside from Link's Awakening. I passed up on A Link Between World's. I think Mipha's ability is the one that fully revived you, which was by far the most useful. Especially against Lynels. Fighting those things were so fun, but just not worth destroying your inventory. Yeah that's a risk to consider. For some people, learning to play pokemon competitively has messed up some enjoyment for playing casually. It makes you aware of all the small nuances, such as catching a pokemon with a bad nature. Out of curiosity, do you find replaying platinum diminishes the difficulty a bit, or are there still some challenging parts? I'm in the minority who has never lost to Cynthia. (But I still constantly lose to wallace in emerald. go figure).

    Soo the good news is I did finish Mega Man 4. I refused to use e-tanks during the boss rush, which hilariously led to me collecting way too many. Also you know how we were talking about the game being vague with what you could do with the power-ups? I had no idea pressing the button a second time blew up the drill shooter. I thought Wily was invincible and I had to look up this fight online. And I clipped my over-preparation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Llqmnp8PNQc. But the cool thing is I now get to start Mega Man 5. This one seems exciting. There was also another wily fight after, but it wasn't hard. The final boss theme was probably my favorite in the entire series so far.

    I considered the half way point to be Prison Island. Just because it seemed to split the story between the more light-hearted tone to a more serious tone. And it also introduced Zanza. Dragon Quest 11 did a similar thing where it introduces the main villain and drastically shifts the tone of the story. I agree that the second half is filled with Mechon, but I don't remember if the game gave you more reliable ways to fight them. In the early portions you pretty much had to be controlling shulk so you could enchant your party members. On the topic of Xenobalde, did you have any trouble with Xord? He does so much damage, however when I played this time I cleared him on my first attempt. It was actually terrifying the first time when you think you've beaten him, and he rushes through the elevator. I remember playing through the mines, finding otharon a bit harsh to shulk.

    I think I'm in a bit of an "off" mood with pokemon to be honest. I haven't been playing anything pokemon related, and I'm not in the mood to start any games. I have an amazon gift card, depending on the price I might place an order for Gates to Infinity. The only one I haven't played. (But idk I also want dragon quest builders). Oh okay, thanks for clearing that up. Trying to make sure, but I'll avoid bringing up castlevania related stuff. Everybody has different views on what a spoiler is. Playing so many plot heavy games, I emphasize with how bad it is running into them. YouTube is the worst offender for this. You look up a song and it shoves the ending into your recommended page.

    No you haven't been confusing about it, don't worry. Actually the conversation interested me so much it inspired me to try and episode of love live. Although I jump between things so much, it's the sole reason I haven't gone back. Right now I'm into marvel, but who knows how long before my interest in that falls. I'm not a fan of seasonal stuff. I'd rather wait and binge the entire thing. That's why I haven't played Deltarune, which is the spiritual successor to Undertale.

    You have it exactly correct about blundering. You need to do it to get better. The best player in the world (Magnus) often challenges rooms full of people simultaneously. He beat 10 players at the same time with a blind fold on. Right now he's in his prime, and is considered by many the greatest player in history. I don't think I would be a good teacher honestly, especially when someone like that exists. I was never very competitive, and mostly played to have fun. I usually didn't care for wins and losses. My only experience with the Pokemon TGC is the old gameboy color game. They had it on 3DS e-shop so I played through the entire thing. It's probably so much different than when that game released.

    And i'm okay, though thanks for asking.

    It's okay. My sleep schedule has become non-existent. Sometimes I sleep through almost the entire morning, other times I'm awake at 4:00 AM. Recently we purchased Disney+ so I've been staying up late watching a bunch of marvel movies.

    I didn't even know the sail existed when I played Wind Waker. I was just taking the boat everywhere at a snail pace, until a family member asked me how I was tolerating this game without using the sail. I stand by what I said a while ago. I wish Wind Waker could be more accessible, because I would really like to try it again. I noticed gamecube emulation has become more widespread, but there's no way my computer is built for that. I was texting my brother (who finished the game where he lives) about the dungeon order. He said the Goron ability wasn't that useful, so I never actually went over there. Have you ever thought about trying a speed run for a game you liked? I actually did once, but it was less "speeding" and more of me trying to beat the game in one sitting. Hylian Shield does break, but it has hours of durability. (Less if you shield surf). Money wasn't an issue in this game, since I perfected the snow bowling mini game and just did that over and over until I was rich. I ended up fully upgrading Link's house, and found most of the story cut-scenes. So I did get pretty far, despite not actually finishing.

    Well, I did finish all the Cossack stages. For some reason I actually thought that was the end of the game, and wasn't excepting a Wily's Castle. Also I was surprised because "Wow a real cut-scene with dialogue on an NES game". He was a simplistic boss, but the room felt cramped so he kept killing me over and over. I did have fun with the boss fight where you had to hop into the machine and shoot the eye. That might be my favorite fight in the series so far. Sorry but if you can clarify, what do you mean by placement traps in fire man's stage? I found the stage a bit unremarkable so I can't remember much about it. I don't know a single thing about Mega Man 8, but just going off what you mentioned, I now assume it's extremely similar to 7. And yeah I noticed the same thing about the boss rush in Mega Man 1. It wasn't even the boss fights I found challenging. It was the platforming and bee enemies that kept taking all my health before the boss fights.

    Ocarina of Time is definitely the game I feel most comfortable with (and by far the only one, to be honest). I've also played it so many times, it makes me slightly hesitant to go back again just because of it. Throwing this in here because I don't remember if I mentioned it, but Paper Mario N64 is my favorite video game of all time (right behind it is Dragon Quest 11). and I've probably finished it between 20-25 times. I usually have no problem going back to that one. Speaking of swooping down, I bet those fire bats would also be annoying. (I think those are called Keese's?). Do you prefer the first half of Xenoblade or the second half? Just asking because it sounded like you speed through the first half, but also mentioned you wanted to reach Melia.

    I think I must have burnt out from Mario Kart 8. I keep trying to go back online, but I always want to turn it off within the first couple races. I was always impressed with how seamlessly the online runs. I can barley remember having any issues with lag, aside from shells not connecting sometimes. Sometimes I go on battle mode, but that feels more like waiting for the ones I enjoy then quitting. I don't like bomb-omb blast or balloon battle (I wish it was elimination instead of point based). However, I love Shine Thief and Renegade Roundup. I don't necessarily remember the mechanics of Super Mystery Dungeon, but I remember it was paced awkwardly. There was a salemence you had to fight in the tutorial section. Even funnier, you could recruit it as a partner and demolish whichever dungeon you wanted. Even though there was a cool down, it just meant conserving it. I think Gates to Infinity had a demo, but I don't know if it's still available. Did you see that the new Pokemon Snap game was announced for April? It looks very cute. When you mention spoilers for castlevania, just to make sure, what do you consider spoilers? People have different ideas for this. Like, some people consider plot related stuff spoilers, and others consider everything spoilers. Such as mentioning game mechanics. Anyways still not exactly sure which one I'll be playing. I might take the time to read about them a bit.

    The same seems to apply for movies. Most people will say the book is the better version and movie adaption doesn't live up. It's interesting that books are considered a better medium for story-telling than movies. From what I've seen, video games are considered a worse medium for plots than movies. I tried to read the Pokemon Adventures manga, but I quickly got confused and quit. Instead I played the rom hack adaptation, which was extremely well made. As you know, I haven't watched anime. However you might find it interesting that some are so well known that I can already name them. For example, One Piece. I'm pretty sure that's the pirate show with the straw hat guy named Luffy? That's as far as my knowledge goes. I saw how many seasons it had and quickly backed off. I think Dragon Ball Z is an anime? I don't know if that's a Japanese anime or an american styled show like Avatar: The Last Airbender. I see and noticed many people into anime are interested in going to Japan. It does make sense, if your into anime and similar things, naturally you would feel more inclined to see more of the culture it's inspired from. Every place as pros and cons to weigh when living, unfortunately I know nothing about Japan. It's been interesting talking about this stuff with you, because I just never got into the Japanese cultural related things. I guess I'm most familiar with U.S related things, and maybe somewhat with Ireland. (My mother actually qualifies for double citizenship, but I don't believe she ever took it up).

    I think chess should be played in any way the person finds fun. Of course if you do play without thinking, you'll probably make lots of blunders. Blunder in chess is just lingo for making a silly mistake, or a terrible accident. Often if you make a blunder, the other person can close the game. Or you find yourself in check. (If your not familiar, check just means your king is at risk of capture). I know this probably isn't the most interesting thing to hear. Honestly I haven't played chess in so long, but it's weird because talking about it, because I still feel fond. Chess is also unique, because the smallest differences in ranking could make a massive difference. By no means am I a "good" player, but I know a couple opening plays (favorite being queen's gambit). and basics (such as setting up a safe position to castle early). I can usually run through someone who isn't familiar with these basics.

    I apologize. I realize I was being dismissive, but I don't like expressing such things too much. If I have any questions I'll ask. In all honestly I don't know what to do. It's hard to break the apathy, and I just sort of became clouded in it. Now it's a constant. Occasionally I'll do something new (like learning how to bike). It's fun for a little bit, but that void feeling comes back. Also, you mentioned your day wasn't well so I hope things got better for you.

    Oh. I never thought of it as slow. Couldn't you also equip a sail to speed it up? Honestly I thought it was peaceful, and the pace of sailing really lets you take in the entire thing. Being in the ocean is one of the most atmospheric feelings. I think Breath of the Wild sort of pushes players to encounter the Zora's first. I don't know if I mentioned this, but speed runs for Breath of the Wild are fascinating. People just running straight to the tutorial into Ganon's Castle, equipped with nothing. I thought the moving dungeons were a slog. There were also 900 collectible korak seeds, and I admire anybody who has the amount of patience to actually find all of those. The Hylian Shield also breaks, which is sad. I believe there's a side quest to repair it, but it would be nice if the reward for finding these items was not having to worry about durability anymore.

    I don't think I ever used the Leaf Shield. It was the item I kept thinking "what does this thing do" and I ignored it 99% of the time. Were any of the bosses actually weak to it? I think...air man? But it was so hard to hit him I kept used the default weapon. That's the reason I'm not looking forward to 7. Not sure how I'll feel about the transition after playing 1-6. I mean, you don't seem to speak negatively about Mega Man 7, which is good. Since you mentioned favorites a lot, is there any game you don't particularity enjoy playing. I could guess Mega Man 1? Honestly despite what I said about replay value, it seems the most outdated and more like a clunky NES game. The entire game feels like Mega Man is running on an ice level. But the stages are also so short I found that it didn't bother me that much. Gut's Man had an insanely tiny stage. Probably because the only challenging part was the platforming section at the start.

    This conversation is making me tempted to try a 3 heart challenge. Maybe soon. There's a couple parts I could see myself getting stuck on. (Barniade, Bongo-Bongo, Ganondorf considering you would have to play perfectly). But yeah I was referring to the room with the fans. I always get hit in that room. Did you find the wall-masters annoying at all? Navi always warns you, but imagine if she didn't. The warnings always made them feel tolerable because you can just run in a circle and wait for the landing. I never played Master Quest much. It was unlocked when beating the original 3DS main story, but I wish it could be there from the start. I didn't feel like running through the entire game again. It's ridiculous how bad my memory with the late game xenoblade is, because what's an...Agniratha? After a bit of thinking I remember now it's the capital that looked like a huge city. I assume this is where you are in the story right now?

    To be fair I just played multiplayer with family. If I had a family member or something visiting I'd just ask "hey want to play mario party"? But it's also nice that games feature online now like Mario Kart 8, so almost everybody can now play together. I hope the next Mario Party game features online multiplayer. Does Gates to Infinity play differently? To be honest I thought these games were a bit "sameish". I thought all the story-lines were pretty good, although thinking back the original Red/Blue rescue team is a bit...weak. I'll probably try Symphony of the Night. That's the game I always hear critical acclaim for. Looking at screen shots, it's much different than I thought. For some reason I was thinking about running around a giant 3D world with ritcher.

    You know, speaking of anime, I'm not that familiar but I have heard of death-note. It looks really interesting. Maybe a bit edgy, but still looks cool. Someone said the manga was better but I have no idea how to read those. I tried with the pokemon adventures and got lost quickly. Aww that's sad about the shrine, but nice knowing it did reach it's goal. Japan seems to get lots of these typhoons.

    Chess requires a lot of mental stamina. Most of the time (particularly for chess.com) you each have a 30 to 60 minute timer. Every time your turn is in play, your timer is counting down. If your taking too long with your turns, your timer will hit 0 and you lose the game. There's also blitz chess. Your timer starts at 5 to 10 minutes. I'm not a fan of this. For some reason I preform better against bots than actual people. I can beat bots above my rating, but struggle against people lower than me. Eh...regarding depression I don't really know anything about it. (just that "thing" my dad had and brother has). I asked about numbness a while back, since I was comparing it to my own feelings. Not a big deal I guess, life goes on.

    I'm not sure I understand why sailing would be unpopular. The ocean feels so vast. I kind of wish you could use a larger ship instead of the tiny boat. If I remember correctly, are there limits to exploration? Like, the game isn't going to let you sail to places super early? Also do you remember the order you tried the dungeons in Breath of the Wild? I did the Zora and the Bird species dungeons, and stopped. I didn't enjoy moving the dungeons around, and I found it boring at times. The shrines could be fun, but after a while I got lazy and kept looking at a guide to speed through them. I did get the master-sword, but after that was the point I quit. The master sword didn't even feel that powerful, it just kept running out of energy.

    That was on my mind with the skull barrier. I was thinking "Is this going to be the only barrier weapon? Because it's actually useful". I did finish Cossack stage 1. Not a fan of ice levels. At least the boss was relatively easy. I immediately tried Ring Man because it seems to be useful most of the time, and it worked. I didn't notice that about the boss doors. But speaking of boss doors, there's so much satisfaction when seeing one. The realization of finally hitting the end of a level. I got overly curious and looked at a video. I can't see why 7 is hard, but it's probably different watching a video than playing. He just seems to shoot energy balls and lasers everywhere. Also 12 years? I had no idea there was such a large gap between games. It seems like they went into a new style for Mega Man 11, so I wonder how 12 will eventually be handled. Would you prefer the newer style or the NES style?

    It sounds like the Shadow Temple would be the hardest on a 3 heart run. So many invisible enemies and traps, and it's a dungeon focused on combat. ...I don't remember blue potions. I remember red and green, but not blue. Most of the time I think I went to the ranch and used the milk. The well didn't bother me at all. I wonder if it's something to do with being forced to play as child link again. The bottom of the well felt watching a dinsey horror movie, but the shadow temple was like going into a much larger, traditional horror setting, if that analogy makes sense. The shadow temple just felt way more large scale and intimidating. As far as scary things go, I did find the original fire temple theme to be slightly unnerving. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZGnJF1R0WU). Yes that's the one I'm thinking of, I'm pretty sure it's the boss in the central factory. Isn't that the place you also confront Egil? To be honest I thought the most intriguing character was Alvis. I spent the entire game wondering who he was and what his intentions were. He looked like he was ripped straight out of a kingdom hearts game.

    Despite what I said about immersion, I should mention that "couch multiplayer" is still one of my favorite things. I love stuff like Mario Party. The beginning of Super Mystery Dungeon takes place in a school. I agree that it starts slow, but I still enjoy these games so much it just didn't bother me. Also it's sort of a coming of age story. By the end, you realize how far you've come since being in the school. It also ended with probably the most unique plot twist in the series. Gates to Infinity is the one I never played. Maybe some day. I do love the series so I should really give it a try. My personal favorite is Explorers. That's the popular answer, but it really is good. Oh no, candy box is a bit different from typical idle games. It has an ending. You leave it open in your browser, it unlocks new levels and bosses. Candy Box 1 doesn't save but can be finished within about a week. I guess it never bothered me to leave it on. I'd usually just put the computer on rest anyways.

    I believe the games I saw were Symphony of the Night, Rondo of Blood, Harmony of Despair, and Lord of Shadows. Sorry if this is a repeating question, but you mentioned it created the "metroidvania" title? I understand Metroid is about collecting items and progressing...so castlevania is the same thing? Or just a platformer. Either way when I finish the last of us II I'll probably download it and try one of them. (PS4 running out of storage). My brother also likes this series so I already texted him. I admit I once thought castlevania was a visual novel. He says it's a horror side scrolling platformer.

    Wow that's such a small and neat detail. How did you come to find it had a real life counterpart? Makes me wonder if they commonly do this in anime shows. I'm always interested when they film in real locations for TV shows. Also now I'm getting a bunch of crunchyroll ads all over my social feed and every time I watch a YouTube video. It's funny how this stuff works.

    13 hours of sleep was nice. Sometimes I can think of a dozen things to do, but for some bizarre reason nothing "interesting". I think sleep is the easy answer but not always the correct answer. For a while my favorite thing was chess, but it's mentally exhausting.

    That was the main issue I had with Wind Waker. I loved the tropical themes, including running around on the islands and sailing the ocean. But when I was in a dungeon my enjoyment dropped. I just wanted to leave and go back on the boat. I forgot Breath of the Wild had DLC. I'm not even sure what most of it includes, besides Majora's Mask and the motorbike. (Which just sounds funny and odd). I usually don't go for DLC unless it's getting good reception and it's important for the plot.

    I'm okay thanks. (slept 13 hours). I keep viewing the weapons as a "Boss Only" tool and I'm really trying to break this habit. But it's not uncommon for me to run through the entire stage with my default weapon. I completely forgot I could block with the Skull Barrier. I keep using it to bash into enemies. Regarding the clip, I was confused when you mentioned "Cossack" stage. I assumed the guy in the image was Dr. Light, and I was leaving his own through a snow field to head into Wily's Castle. This is the story I made up in my head, now I'm realizing they probably explained this in the intro and I've already forgotten. That's funny about Top Man because I'm trying to wrap my thoughts around how he's meant to explore space. I don't even think his stage was space themed. Ring Man makes way more sense. Speaking of Ring Man I did finally clear his stage. That was so satisfying. Also I was reading about some of the games. Lots of complaints of Wily being hard in Mega Man 7. If that's true i'm already sort of dreading it. Also curious about why Mega Man 7 looks like such a graphical update, and why Mega Man 9 looks like an NES game again.

    I'm wondering if the Biggorns sword would be useless on a 3 heart run. I think it would be more helpful to have a shield. I'm now tempted to try my own 3 heart run, at the same time wouldn't it just end up being all about bottling a bunch of fairies? I can't imagine bongo bongo, I can hardly do that on a normal run. It would be much easier if you didn't have to run through the shadow temple again, which is filled with enemies. Did you ever find the shadow temple to be a creepy place at all? I think I actually found it slightly unsettling, mostly just returning for gold skulls. Returning just makes you feel like you don't belong. Also my reaction to that was "What's a jade face"? It sounds familiar but I don't remember. I think it's the boss that starts you far away and you have to work towards him. I do remember that long mechonis dungeon where you had to climb what felt like 100 floors. Might have been the same place.

    Some of it is just an immersion thing. If I'm playing something I would rather just tune out the world for a while, and that doesn't work if someone is in the room. My brain instantly focuses more on the other person and what that person is doing. I can be talkative but a lot factors come into play. Mystery Dungeon DX looks nice, but I can't see myself wanting it for the full $60 price. (Especially when I know how the story plays out, and I could see that story again for free on an emulator). Not only that, but I think explorers had the superior story. Did you ever play Super Mystery Dungeon? I found that was underappreciated. I wasn't aware you could do that with Wonder Mail. I remember in the original you could chain link moves, and certain combinations dominated the games. But yeah I admittedly cheat pretty heavily with it. Saving on every floor, sometimes in the middle of a floor. It's the only game I ever do this with. I had no problem getting through Super Mystery Dungeon though, which some claim is the hardest in the series.

    This makes me want to play Candy Box again. Candy Box 2 is superior, but I think Candy Box 1 had less interactivity and was more of an idle game. You could just leave that open in a browser. Only issue was Candy Box 1 didn't save. If your browser forced closed, it meant starting all over. I might have asked this (can't remember) but Love Live was a mobile game first, right? And had it's show inspired from that? I wonder if that happens often.

    I'll try season 1 first. I was confused and it felt like I jumped right into the middle of the show. I don't know if there's any better websites, but I was using crunchyroll and the advertisements went on for really long times. I mean I could just tab out and browse facebook or something, but still. Also I am subscribed to PS Now (Which is a service which gives a bunch of free games). I noticed they had a few castlevania titles on there which is neat. I would like to find one with ritcher.

    That's cool about your dad. My family immigrated from Ireland, so I have a lot of heritage. Are the places loosely inspired or heavily inspired? (from love live). Also sorry this message is getting shorter and shorter. Started writing it because honestly I couldn't sleep. As I started writing towards the last few paragraphs I started getting tired, now I'm struggling to stay awake. But was thinking "No I can finish this".

    Soo here's a blind attempt at Wily's Castle from Mega Man 4. I thought it would be amusing to clip it. Even though I quickly lost all my lives. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22-6aa6po4Q

    This one is definitely going to be an uphill climb.

    I needed to install linux again anyways. I was going to gift a game for someone on steam. If only cave story had an app. Because chromebook's have a built in playstore, the same thing you get on a phone. If it had an app I could play it immediately. Also trying to recall how far I actually made it into windwaker. Dragon Roost cavern was second? I remember that place. I think I stopped after the Forbidden Woods (or inside it, I legit can't remember if I finished that dungeon or not). I don't remember any stealth sections in Breath of the Wild. Are you referring to dodging the spotlights in the castle?

    I'll try to finish Mega Man 4 later today. It's literally 5 am at the time i'm writing this. (had a panic attack, not fun at all.)..I don't think the game tells you about charging the shot. It really doesn't tell you much of anything. I'm actually so reliant on auto fire I'm not sure if I could imagine playing these games without it. It's so helpful for certain enemies, like those green things that are invincible aside from when they flash their eyes. (Snake Man's stage had them). This might sound strange, but out of all of them I think the most re playable for me might be Mega Man 1. It's so short, I feel like it would be easy to try and master. I decided to search up "Centaur Man" and it says he was a tour guide modified for combat. I didn't even know the robots had backstories, so that's neat. Okay also his design looks really cool. He probably has a cool stage too. The stages are already impressive, so I'm curious about how the later entries such as 8 or 9 will start looking. I read somewhere that all the bosses are taken from fan submissions. Not sure if that had any truth to it. Isn't Mega Man 9 the one with the Mermaid boss robot? I remember reading something about that in a web comic.

    My first version of Ocarina of Time was the N64 on Virtual Console. I got stuck in the deku tree. Which might sound silly, but I was about 9 years old and had almost never touched a Zelda game. So a couple years later the 3DS version released and I got through that with hint stones, went back to the Virtual Console and also completed that. Yeah there's all sorts of small details in these games. Dark Link is completely trivialized with Din's Fire. I usually sword fight because it's not even a fight anymore if you do it. Also I think you can have the big-goron sword by then. Not sure if you use that in your playthrough's, but you out damage him if you have it. Out of curiosity, how did you get through Dark Link on a 3 heart challenge? He usually trades damage with me if I don't use Din's Fire. Also speaking of small things, you probably know this, but you can reflect ganondorf's magic with the bottle. For Xenoblade I blank out after Prison Island. I think the game goes Colony 9--->Tephra Cave--->Bionis Leg--->Either Mines--->Colony 6--->Satorl Marsh---> The Jungle---> Eyrith Sea--->Valak Mountain? I don't remember if that's before or after, Prison Island---> Fallen Arm? Then bionis, and all the stuff with Dickson. The later it goes the worse my memory gets.

    I don't blame you for wanting to hold off on persona. Funny enough, I was just messaging roni about something similar. I struggle to play anything if other people are around. Video Games are something I can't divide concentration. Maybe something super simplistic like Pokemon or Mega Man, but if someone comes over while I'm playing The Last of Us, I'll just shut it off and pick up later. It's why I could never be a streamer. If I haven't mentioned this, I love the Mystery Dungeon series. I've played all of them besides Gates to Infinity and the WiiWare game. (Idk if I want to play that one). Explorers of Sky had a beautiful story and some beautiful messages. Sadly I was never great at these games, and I can't do them without being reliant on Save States. I never use save states, but Explorers of Sky is the one exception. It's brutal being 20 floors into a dungeon, and getting killed by a monster house.

    Oh, my misunderstanding. I didn't notice the difference in spelling. But speaking of idle games (the one I was mistakenly referring to) there is one called Candy Box. It's a browser game and was probably one of my favorite games of all time. I liked it so much that I completely ignored cookie player since they became popular at similar times. But no I had never even heard of idol games. The app store has so much depth, it's no wonder that I've never seen them. It always seems to recommend the popular things to me, such as Subway Surfers or Temple Run. I'm sure there are hidden gems to it.

    It was nice. I really should watch season 1 first. I admit a lot of it was me trying to keep up. Not sure if it's the show or an unfamiliarity with how an anime is paced. But it's nice trying something out of familiarity. At the same time it was kind of surreal. Had heard about anime for probably my entire life, but just never watched anything...the closest thing being Avatar the Last Airbender, which was an american cartoon based on an anime.

    His twitter is blocked. I apologize for bringing it up. I understand wanting to stay off the news. To be fair my words echoed what one of my own teachers had told me. It stuck out. And I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting to learn about Japan. Is there any specific part you want to visit, or is it the country as a whole?
