Still haven't listened to the last one. Tomorrow I will be busy.

FYI: I did that bit at the end when Fink had to leave for a minute. So, I was alone and bored and forgot it was recording! Though, I do appreciate Davoid including it.... I think what I said needed to be heard!! =P

Wow, you guys reaaally like Pokemon.

That said, I will say that I think you guys have a good chemistry (and with Davoid, too), and some of those jokes pop up pretty quick. Rapier wit!

Also, I liked the pizza roll introspective.

Another nice podcast "No Last Comment" Joe and "Dances With Scat Cat" Stephen! Your Pokemon enthusiasm is great. I've only ever tried Pearl, but I'll probably try these new ones.

And I, too, enjoyed the kicker at the end. I demand more!

I'm glad you enjoyed the episode, and thanks for listening! I would definitely try the next one, pokemon-wise. I wouldn't say you should rush out and go get black or black 2, but jump in on the next this year. We'll all be so excited to play together and trade and such. It'll be a great game and a good forum experience.

Anyone else have Secret of Mana experiences to share? Anyone know about how long the game takes? Cuz I was unable to tell Fink.

Anyone played that crazy Thomas Was Alone game?

Someone (sorry, I've already forgotten..probably Fink, haha!!) just asked me, and I had no idea. "I was never in a hurry," was my response, and I won't be again. It SEEMS like a long day, but part of me wants to blurt out 20 hours. But.....that doesn't seem accurate. There is a lot to do, and the game is -- for me -- a great place be, and you don't WANT to leave. I always said that Monster Hunter is "300 hours" for me, but that isn't a complaint. I just know that because I always saw it when I'd log in or whatever. What a great game.

I was going to add a few things:

A. My experience with the original Mega Man series (1-6) is that it gets easier as they go on, except 6, which is probably somewhere in the middle. This is my experience now, having played through all of them in a row on the MMAC on PS2. 1 is definitely the toughest, and even 2 has some tough parts (though we're probably all used to them by now) but 3 gets a bit easier, 4 you can stroll through, and 5 is a cakewalk. And then 6 is a bit tougher again. Forget how tough 7 and 8 are. 9 and 10 are probably somewhere in between 1 and 2 in toughness... closer to 2.

B. Secret of Mana is awesome, but I would not go into it thinking Link to the Past. Sure it has real-time fighting, puzzles to solve, etc. but it is still more Action RPG than Adventure game. Like the puzzles / etc. don't really touch the level that they do in a Zelda game. And the magic is auto-hit when you use it, you don't really aim magic. Attacks have cool-down periods in between. Etc.

What is tough in 2? You're probably right, "used to it," but what did you think was tough?

I think 3 was tougher than 2, but 4 and 5 are cakeish, yes.

Well, certain stages in 2 can be super tough if you do them out of order. This may be true with most Mega Man games, I dunno. But I think Heat Man's stage is probably harder than most.

Secret of Mana has puzzles?

Posted by

If you don't have Item 2? Certainly. Not sure if I EVER took the blocks over.


They have a couple, don't they? I think people define "puzzles" differently. There were times when you had to hit switches in different orders, yes? And there are those orbs that you gotta hit with the correct element. Do those count?

Posted by 
 on: 01/24/13, 01:00:20

Yea, the orb thing was the closest thing I could think of and that's pushing it, I'd say. More like tasks than puzzles haha.

I thought I remembered a few switch puzzles? Maybe I am getting Secret of Mana confused with Lufia 2?

Posted by

I think there ARE switch puzzles. I seem to remember something with water and "you heard a noise in the distance.." or something.

Joe, Stephen has misled you! When doing the coin rush streetpasses in NSMB2, when you beat a person's total, it does get added to yours. You also get a bonus 1000 coins for beating them.

Son of a....!! Thanks, Gui! Now, I gotta start carrying around my 3DS again.

*shakes fist at Stephen!*

Keep going...

lol! I thought about continuing that to its logical joke conclusion, but, I didn't want to be needlessly creepy. =P

Thanks for picking up on the potential humor though

"Joke" conclusion? Mmm hmm.
