    How'd the coin flip end up? Luxray and Drifblim are fun to use, I think I just used Drifblim on a whim once and when I learned it gets Ominous Wind by level-up I had a lot fun, haha.

    Let me know how Mega Man 5 ends up going! I don't think there's any really tough sections I can think of to warn you about, but I'll just say if you aren't used to using the charge all the time you'll probably be used to it by the time you finish 5. Super Mario RPG was one game I think I wanted to end up finishing around November or something? I think I mentioned something like that months ago on this forum. Culex is neat though, I love when games throw in superbosses as easter eggs and stuff.

    The Sand Zone is probably where the game stops pulling punches and the difficulty ramps up. I remember dying several times to Monster X my first time playing. Did you take the Machine Gun, or did you keep the Polar Star?
    Glad to hear you're enjoying the genre too! Cave Story is like that perfect mix between Run n' Gun and MetroidVania I can think of. The closest I can think of is a bonus mode in one of the Castlevania games where you replay the game as a different character who's got a bunch of special abilities with guns. But at that point, you already have to play the whole game normally to unlock him.

    That's really relieving to hear actually, it's tough to pick up old RPGs for me because of that. I don't own one anymore, but I'll definitely keep my eyes out for any opportunities to play it.

    It kinda does feel like playing Classic for the first time in its own way. It's neat seeing all the changes they made from one game to the next and learning what all the new special weapons do. A fun thing about the X games is that you can charge every weapon to give it different effects. There's a weapon where you can shoot a shield ball out, but if you charge it, you become shielded and can damage things on contact. They definitely aren't the same, but they kinda give me that same feeling again, which is nice. It's been around a decade since I've been able to experience a whole Mega Man series for the first time.
    I'm experiencing pretty much everything for the first time, but I'm looking up boss weaknesses, and looking up the locations of hidden upgrades once I've completed the 8 main stages. There are a couple things I do know going into the games just because they've been out for so long, like how there's a technique to deal more damage faster in X4 which I used for a few bosses. Things like the areas themselves, the boss fights, and what the weapons do are all new to me though.

    I think I saw your sketch of an elephant recently, that was pretty neat! It'd be cool to see more.

    How are you feeling right now? You mentioned you were okay before, at least no headache or physical pain so just wanted to check in and make sure you're still feeling alright. <3
    I can understand being anxious. Hopefully now you have someone with you since it's later in the evening that I am writing this.

    Bless your mom's heart, working so many hours in the health industry and then some now that she's covering for many others workers during the outbreak. It must be so tiring for her, and tough on family too with her having to be away a bit more. Just keep hanging on Zeostar.

    Sending you another poke picture to cheer you up.

    I just read this post.

    Hang in there. I'm sorry to hear that you were injured. Is your mom home yet? If not consider going to a neighbor for help if anyone's home, or call 911 if you have too in case it is a serious fall. I can't hep but worry about you. I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers

    Stay safe. I'm here if you need anything. Your friend <3

    Awww, this is a pleasant surprise. That was lovely how Watson went to hug his buddy Kiko! What a wonderful furry protector he seems to be, and also sounds smart. Thank you for spreading the animal love, I only wish I had checked my messages sooner.

    One cute image deserves another.

    I hope you and your loved ones are safe and sound, and that your sister has recovered from any side effects. Glad your mom is alright, and I hope also that the situation you told me about via pm is under control right now?

    Thank you also for sharing a glimpse of your treasured Jade with me. She looks and sounds like a good, strong protector keeping watch over you and your loved ones! They don't call a dog man's best friend for no reason :)

    Cats are self-reliant and can look very regal. I always liked the way cats looked, after adopting them though I have come to see that they are very quirky too, and that makes them a little more approachable than one might expect. Every cat is different of course, I have met some very friendly and at times silly cats that have been good to me. Both cats and dogs are cool in their own unique ways. It's hard to choose! :p

    Good luck on your Soul Silver playthrough. You seem to be going through it pretty well. I haven't played HGSS in some years, I did complete Soul Silver though, and remember liking it. I like the increased character development of Silver, especially in the Celebi event, and I love that Pokemon follow you and have numerous, varied reactions when you interact with them and they really did a good job I think building on the region of both Kanto and Johto, opening the Safari zone, having previously off-limit legendaries now available for encounter, making the pokeathalon, incorporating the battle frontier, gym leader rematches and just making the post game more developed.

    At the same time though now that I have the original Crystal on the virtual console I haven't revisited the remakes, so I'm not sure if I would feel the same way if I played HGSS today. I have really enjoyed gen 2, and there's a lot from the originals that I think I would miss now like Kris I prefer to being Lyra, and the different way that Suicune finally joins you in Crystal, and the overall innocence and simplicity of old Johto. That's not a common opinion I know, but I'm an uncommon soul :)

    I'm really glad to have you there in Trivia and play games with you. I really look forward to modding this section with it's awesome staff and equally amazing members <3

    I'd probably say Weavile, Magmortar would probably share more weaknesses with members of your team (especially with Luxray already being weak to Ground) and Weavile could be a great option to deal with Garchomp. It also deals with Roserade well by being faster than it.
    Platinum's that game where it's so easy for me to just sink so much time into it, I get you there. I love it to bits. Backing up to your previous message though...

    Yeah, the health pick-up on the second pipe at the beginning of Wave's stage is confusing. It's easy to think you landed on top of the pipe and just get sucked in through the top. You have to know to land as close to the end as you can. It takes some practice to get used to because you can't really see it. The miniboss is such a pain because it's harder to lead or dodge its shots when it gets closer, and its weak point is so small that it's hard to shoot. Just try and get used to the rhythm as it goes up and down and when it shoots so you can know when to try and dodge.
    The X series is a lot of fun but it definitely has its differences. All the enemies have lots more health and you're pretty much required to always be charging your buster. They do more damage too, and you have to search the stages for things like health upgrades and different armour upgrades. There are things like Leg Upgrades that let you dash, a Buster Upgrade that lets you charge your special weapons, a Body Upgrade that lets you take less damage, and a Helmet Upgrade that lets you smash blocks (which really just lets you get the buster upgrade, it doesn't do much else) and having things like the dash and wall-jump makes the levels more interesting, but more difficult.

    I think the most of a hint you get from the jellyfish juice is just that you see a fireplace earlier in the area, and you get the item later that can put out fires. The game might just ask you to put the two together in your head at some point, but at that point you're still going forwards. The Waterway is a different area of the game found later, you'll know it when you see it.

    Using Corsola over Rampardos is really interesting haha, that's super interesting.
    Oh yeah, I did get it! It wasn't on stream but I just happened to find the streamer in a room when he was just playing on his own time. I ended up winning one of the 3 awards for the lobby, and then he ended up winning the MVP, which is given to the highest scorer of all 3 awards.

    Good call on just letting the kid go, yeah. Glad to see it all ended up getting resolved, somewhat decently I guess?

    I've heard a lot of good things about Earthbound. I haven't touched it cause I've had no good way of accessing it, but also because I'm worried it would be tough to learn another RPG, especially such an old RPG, which usually don't go about explaining their mechanics and everything that well. Is that something that's tough when playing it the first time?

    oooh, that sounds neat! never been either but there are so many pretty states and cities out there ;o; America is such a nice looking place, shame about all the problems we have with it :(

    that's cool! never had any problems with them have you? like crashing? I always had issues with crashes and stuff when I emulated @[email protected];

    Be warned if you pick Eevee as your partner. It has "Runaway" as an ability, so it'll abandon you when it's health gets into yellow. I played through the entire story with it, and it can be a challenge.
    LOL... I would never have thought of this. I think I'll avoid Eevee now, thank you D: oof

    Nope :D that's too tourist-y for most locals, we kind of leave it to the tourists to check out lol. Not too interested in it.

    Ohh wow really? I actually heard taxi drivers tend to be a bit ruder as well as more expensive. There are definitely weird uber drivers out there though, but I don't think it's unsafe. not for everyone though and I respect that!

    and yesss I plan to play the post game! the game wouldn't keep complete otherwise. do you emulate or play physical?

    awwww Zeo... ;_; <3 of course!! sometimes it takes me days to reply because I forget or get distracted but that's normal for me and definitely not on purpose, if you wonder why I am slow sometimes! I'm happy to keep talking to you for all this time!!! \o/

    your profile looks so much better now! thanks for making the colors easier on the eyes, and i love the Cyndaquil! i only have an approximate knowledge of color theory myself, so with regards to choosing colors for my profile (back when i was doing it myself lol), i just chose different shades of the same color to play it super safe. i'd sometimes throw in a complementary color even to spice things up, but that was rare. this might be weird to hear coming from a graphic designer, but hey i never had proper training on this stuff and mostly just steal design ideas, including colors, from other people lol. no one's noticed nor cared so far...

    i'm way ahead of you on the VPP text pad. i actually have an excel sheet on my computer for my stats to ensure that my VPP points stay accurate. gotta check with that every month or so to make sure there aren't any mistakes. someone like you probably won't need it yet though since you have very few stats to monitor still. my way of completing VPP is just to complete all Gold Medals for all types. being the first to achieve that would be a treat~ trying to collect every single Pokemon ever is a heck more of a chore than anything, so i'm passing on that.

    being well-off enough to not have to rely on anyone other than your parents to take care of y'all is quite the life. big families like yours, if living here in the Philippines, would always have at least 1 or 2 of the eldest siblings set aside part of their salaries to help out with the whole family. and you guys should feel super fortunate that y'all have your own devices and don't need to share stuff that much. my gf constantly complains that her siblings use her computer without asking and download games she never agreed to. i've been telling her to password protect it, i wonder how it's going now...

    for 300 elo chess players, you gotta hope to the heavens that it isn't a GM with a new account speedrunning the system lol. i personally went back to playing a bit and have won 2 games already. coming back right now to around 933 elo or so. might even play again after this to get my fill for the day, who knows? i've been looking at gambit openings recently, along with binging agadmator and Paul Morphy games. i wanna see where that takes me.

    i don't know, even if i'm alone on my computer, i can find an infinite amount of stuff to do online, to the point that i tend to get overstimulated even lol. it's hard for me to fall into a rut when there's about a dozen things on my to-do list right now that i've yet to get started on or finish. different stroke for different folks. i agree wholeheartedly with your point on finding new hobbies. i never would've been a PC mod had this pandemic never happened, and tbh my career wouldn't be headed where it is now if i'd stuck to just settling for my corporate job.

    i saw that convo between you and Dakota. top tier stuff, got me laughing haha. i don't mean this as an insult or anything, but it genuinely reminds me of how i talked to literally everyone in high school. it was hard to keep up conversations when i was focusing on constantly trying to be witty instead of actually adding something meaningful. and i had the gall to wonder why i had very few friends lol.

    Yeah NY state and NY city are different places! NYC is a city in NY state. NY state is a huuuge place with a lot of different places, a lot of them are fairly suburban/even rural.

    And yeah... it's odd. The city here is less safe because it has more crime/begging and etc. Definitely wouldn't want to walk there, or anywhere here in SA honestly, at night. We always uber home if we have to be out past sunset.

    shdhdh I wanna play Sky so bad. I heard it was great but also very sad. Hopefully it doesn't make me cry lol

    I'd just keep going! Promise it does pick up, but not on the same level of the original I think. Korra is a bit more focused on the emotional/romantic aspects (but there is still a lot of action). Starting over doesn't make much sense to me if you don't wanna go through the early eps again. Push through!!

    I won't lie, that is pretty confusing. What do you mean by your first time trying to copy?

    A tip for the geysers is to notice the cracks in the ground and walk up to them, wait for the geysers to go off, and walk through after they turn off. The chains just swing on cycles, so if you avoid the ends with slides you should be fine. The jetbike part of the stage does feel like it lasts a long time, probably because you move at a set speed. I always found the miniboss to be a pain though, yeah. I think that goes for every game though, you're gonna enjoy it less if you're getting frustrated. I picked up Mega Man X last night and got frustrated at a part near the end, so I took a break and I'll pick it up again at some point today.

    Once you find out you can build the bomb, you can talk to Kazuma locked in the building to the left of the Execution Chamber, he'll tell you he has a key labelled "Gum" in the building he's trapped in and he'll hand it to you, which will allow you to open the Gum door. As for the charcoal, if you head back to the far left to Santa's house and use your Jellyfish Juice on the fireplace, you'll get some Charcoal. Head back to the right, kill the big Jelly again to get more Jellyfish Juice, and you should be able to get past the large wall without needing to go through Chaco's fireplace since the fans should be on by that point.
    I feel like it's easy to die often in Cave Story but it never feels punishing because of the amount of saves, and there's only a couple parts at the very end of the game where it feels frustrating. I feel like the way you move and jump can be a little tough to get used to, but by the time you finish the next couple areas, the game makes sure you've got the feel of it locked down. It's rewarding to do some of those tough awkward jumps to pick up heart capsules now that I have the practice. I should also mention you can just go back to almost every area you'd like to pick up anything you missed, with the exceptions being the Egg Corridor and maybe the Waterway as well.

    That's such a fun idea, that's like how Rampardos can learn things like Thunder, Fire Blast, Surf, and Blizzard and just letting it go off with that, haha. Sheer Power is always fun to play around with and I forgot it got Ice Beam. I usually try and roll with whatever natures I get but if I get something really bad like +Atk -Sp.Atk on a special attacker, I'll go out of my way to get another.

    Oh that sounds like a lot of fun, that's also a pretty high amount of wins. Reminds me of a time recently where I ran into a streamer I know of in an idol game I play. We were in the same lobby and I tried pretty hard to win one of the awards so he'd see my name or recognize me.
    A sequel like that was the perfect chance for them to include the previous protagonist. I don't think it'd be awkward for them to give the protagonist a canonical team because of giving one for Red, but I can definitely see why they wouldn't, yeah.

    I don't know if I'd say it's a super common trope, but it's somewhat well-known. Sometimes a show in that setting won't have a character like that. I'm not sure exactly how common or rare I could say it is.
    That's good you didn't deal with bullying but yikes, that sounds like a whole mess. Glad to hear you got out of it and you made better friends. No worries on the rambling, you know by this point it's something I do pretty often, haha.

    I've played maybe about half an hour of it in my life? I've had thoughts of playing through it every so often, I've just never really devoted myself to sitting down and playing it. I'm not sure you mentioned that, but yeah last year was kinda like that for me as well, I got around to finishing some games I had wanted to beat but never got around to. (A big example being Metroid Prime 1 and 2)

    If I play through Platinum I'll usually plan out a team beforehand so I can use things I've never really used before, so I'm sure I could have some suggestions. Why not go for Yanmega, Tangrowth, or Porygon-Z?~
    I totally get what you mean about having ideas in your head, and it's why I've gone out my way to use some interesting Pokemon like Gliscor or Granbull in a couple playthroughs. (Not specifically of Platinum but you get what I mean.)
    That's super neat, reminds me of some of the Castlevania games, where they'd usually take someone from 6-8 hours without grinding or struggling on bosses, but I've played through some of them in a short afternoon, maybe about 3 hours, since I already know what weapons and powers to use and I know where everything on the map is.
