Old school Neg Worlder's remember fondly the experience quest. I decided to remake it. I actually had this ready long ago, I just wanted to get some more stages going, but I've been pretty busy and thought WTF, it has 10 stages already which isn't a bad start. I'll work on more stages once people need them.
So enter the new and improved NEVERENDING EXPERIENCE QUEST.
For the newbz, essentially it is a meta-game contained in this site, seeing how many stages you can complete. Some are just simple quizzes. Others will make you think outside the box. Can't explain it much more than that, just play it yourself and see what I mean!
The Neverending Experience Quest can be found HERE or under "NEQ" in the "etc" menu above (link actually does something now.)
You can also view user rankings HERE (just sort by NEQ to see who is leading the quest.)
CHANGES: A. Massive XP now given for every stage completed. MASSIVE. B. There is now a strike system. You start with full XP for any given stage, but lose XP each time you answer incorrectly, up to 3 strikes. After that, there are no more penalties, so guess away! C. There is now a hint system. When you answer incorrectly you will get a hint. There is only one hint per stage.
Post any questions, concerns, bugs, etc. in this thread! And you can also use, but do NOT post actual answers in this thread.
WARNING: DO NOT POST ACTUAL ANSWERS IN THIS THREAD. OR ANY THREAD, FOR THAT MATTER. The point of the game is everyone figures it out on their own. If you want to private message a friend an answer that's between you and them, but keep it private.
OTHER WARNING: I WILL NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, GIVE "PRIVATE" HINTS THIS TIME AROUND. ANY HINTS I DECIDE TO GIVE WILL BE DONE PUBLICLY HERE, IN THE OFFICIAL NEVERENDING EXPERIENCE QUEST THREAD. AND YOU CAN BEG ALL YOU WANT, YOU WON'T GET MANY HINTS, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING HINTS ARE NOW WORKED INTO THE GAME.
Well, I guess we should count my brother. He is the only person I know who completed all 125 stages from Lemmings without cheating. I got 124 but I couldn't figure out the damn last one and eventually looked it up online... just to realize I HAD figured it out before but gave up on that path thinking it would never work. Blah.
"There should be a function where we can go back and look at past stages again. I can't remember exactly which one level 8 was :P"
I wasn't more specific because I didn't want to give away any hints, or let people who aren't there yet have any idea what is coming.
"Now I know how Gamblor/Red Shell felt all those years ago with his damn captain."
I really, really badgered Zero about that one, but he wouldn't budge. I eventually looked through every game he had and on the cartridge for one was the answer. Too bad points from the original NEQ don't count in the new one, although other people did eventually figure out which 'captain' he was referring to.
Well... how about this for a hint. The answer to #5 is a famous robot duo from a very, very famous, long-running series. That I am a somewhat outspoken fan of, albeit it kind of went downhill since the SNES... but they sure didn't stop cranking the games out.
Getting that much can't be too tough. The difficult part is figuring out how to get it down to 2 characters. I honestly never thought this one would be so tough, how many stars is it?!
