It's time for a short and sweet installment of the NegativeWorld podcast. This episode, NinSage and DrFinkelstein discuss the latest Nintendo Direct and the unveiling of the 6th generation of Pokémon games.
As usual, the theme music comes from Negative World's owner and dictator, Zero. The interlude music is from Cave Story+.
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
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.
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.
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.
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?
