Don't get me wrong I love Penny as a character, I just find her very tough to use!
@PogueSquadron There is a local versus mode for up to 4 players which unlocks after you complete all of the story stuff... for some reason. You also unlock the weekly challenge mode with online leaderboards at that point as well. Because those are both totally things that should be hidden behind finishing a story mode.
Mind you it's pretty easy to burn through the story mode, BUT STILL.
I don't really mind since to me the main draw of story mode in a WarioWare game is going for personal high scores, which you can't even really do the first time through, so I do like to get through everything at least once early on so I can start going for high scores.
But it's still just weird to hide a multiplayer mode and a weekly challenge mode behind finishing a single player mode. Weird decision.
I haven't played this yet, but the guys talked about that on the podcast episode we were recording last night. It sounded interesting. Seemed like some of them require to use a specific character, like one where you have to unfog glasses and you do it specifically by cooling the food with the character who has a water jetpack.
Right, every microgame is clearable with every character, but there are special achievements under the Mission category that will ask you to complete a microgame in a certain way, usually with a certain character. One of them is "complete the foggy glasses game by cooling down the food," and the only way to do that is with Penny. That was a really cool one, I'd have never guessed you can do that!
Hey, someone named Peter passed my score for the first Wario Cup at the last second! Octorockin, is that you? And I fell from the Top 3% to the Top 5% too! Apparently all the WarioWare masters play on Monday night.
Wait, NOW I see why Peter came out of nowhere. Your leaderboards only update when you submit a new high score! I've been sitting pretty all week thinking that I'm in 1st place with my 7000 or so points, but anyone could have taken the top spot and I wouldn't even know...
This week's Wario Cup is cool: 15 puzzle challenges with long time limits, no base multipliers, fastest time wins. And it's tough! The pipe rotating and Big Brain Academy microgames always trip me up. I got my gold trophy, but I'm still only in the B tier!
I only tried it a few times, the big brain one gets me as well as the one where the plates switch, it happens so fast sometimes and you're not just responsible for one object, you have to know where any of them end up! It's a cool challenge though!
I like this week's challenge! Although I didn't like that even after (eventually) getting a Gold, I still got a B. Guess there are a lot of people who did well this week...!
@Zero For this one, I try to keep my eye on two objects (the first two). It sounds kind of crazy, not sure how to describe it. Then if they ask me to find the third thing, I know where it is via process of elimination.
Yeah I was really worried that it would be like "and here is yet another mix of the mini-games you have played already played a bunch of in the same way that you have played them" but they're really making it feel like its own thing. Definitely nothing like this week's challenge in the main game.
