Oh Gees! Its Bees!
Just call me Bees.
I like to play Games! :D
Saw Guardians of the Galaxy last night. It was an enjoyable space action movie.
Spoilers: The Little Engine That Could makes it.
You see, there’s this thing called sharing.
perhaps your mom mentioned it to you?
sorry, that was rude.
it’s Pokemon, you gotta
train six catch them all.
I didn’t say they were bad, just that I could rarely solve the puzzles on my own, because they were pretty convoluted.
I’ll think if I can turn it into a more full fledged post or not, If I come up with something I’ll let you know.
ha, that sounds more like a point and click than an adventure game. point and clicks have always been inscrutable to me.
I only got through The Secret of Monkey Island with a guide, and only did that cause the jokes were funny.
I love how Pikachu bounces off his face, that’s perfect.
yeah go ahead man. feel free if you want.
XCOM:EU is also on sale as part of the Steam 2K sale this weekend in case anyone’s interested in it on PC.
Work and personal phones probably. That’s how my dad does it.
so, since I have Wii again, two of my younger siblings decided to start playing Twilight Princess. (The Gamecube version, so they could have been playing it all along anyway.)
So I was browsing on my laptop when sounds of frustration reminded me that Twilight Princess’ first hour contains the absolute worst puzzle I have come across in a Zelda game. What puzzle? why it is none other than the cat puzzle.
it seems simple enough at first. go and fetch the shopkeeper’s cat before she’ll sell you that shiny new slingshot. she even tells you exactly where the cat is, on the docks watching the fish. So you run on over there, ready to hit A and scoop up the cat into your arms like a normal human. But no, you can’t pick it up, that wouldn’t be a puzzle at all.
Instead you notice the cat runs away from you. So all adages about herding cats aside, you chase the furball back to the entrance of the cottage, where it refuses to go through the pet door and runs back to watch the fish. wait a minute, fish! that’s gotta be it! someone mentioned a fishing rod earlier.
You come back after completing the simple task to get the fishing rod. You’re playing a Zelda game and you just got a new item. Surely then next few puzzles will simply sort themselves out at the mere sight of it.
You plop your line into the water and promptly are rewarded with a bite on the line. Ha Ha, the puzzle’s as good as solved! Your jubilation is confirmed by the cat’s new found fascination with the end of your fishing rod, and the fish dangling upon it. It chases after you as you run back to the shop to deliver the pet to it’s rightful home.
But it doesn’t go through the pet door.
In fact nothing you do will get that cat to go back home until you catch a second fish! Because the second fish you catch flops off the line after you reel it in, and the cat snags it and scampers back home! Obviously the fishing aspect of the game is so enthralling that you are assuredly going to try fishing more than once in a row. And of course you’re going to drop the second fish you catch. Why wouldn’t you think of that?
Anyway, that’s a long story about how I took an hour trying to solve that puzzle before finally looking it up. So now I just tell my siblings, “oh yeah, the cat puzzle? Catch two fish.” they give me a look and say, “Wait, I’m supposed to catch two fish?” and I say, “Yup. Worst puzzle ever. The rest of the game is great though.”
just gonna point out that this is a bad plan.
I trust you already knew that though. :)
it would take me two months to beat a single song in DDR, based on my track record.
my brain doesn’t click with that sort of foot coordination.
I’m with spooky. It’s got nut in the name, it can be grouped with nuts outside of scientific discussion. It’s use as a food would categorically place it with nuts still.
just like calling a tomato a vegetable is fine for everyday use, because that’s how they are eaten.
yeah, unfortunately I just accept the glitches and move on. kinda sad really that they’ve only gotten somewhat better about that.
yeah, I guess I’ve had the benefit of my siblings growing up with them as the mechanics got more complicated, so they jump right in and are fine.
I can see how it would be more confusing for a younger kid.
an entire game of zelda platforming puzzles? 0.0
you seem to want it acknowledged badly though. :)
I like it better personally, the simple style just got old fast. I only ever beat the earlier ones because they were the only co-op games I had to play with my little siblings at the time.
they started their own thread inside yours. it happens.
Lego Batman 2 wasn’t as good as Marvel, but I’m expecting them to add the power variety of Marvel into this game. If they do, I’ll probably get it, if not, I’ll be disappointed and won’t.
Well I’m looking forwards to this.
I had a more positive experience with Lego Marvel than Zwolf and Sabre seemed to have, and I liked Lego Batman 2 as well. got tired of any non-superhero Lego game though, but I love the hero ones. they just seem to fit the play style of the Lego games better than Lord of the Rings and whatnot.
huh, did not know that.
I am so sorry for your loss. Peanuts are amazing.
If I had a patron saint, it would be George Washington Carver, and he isn’t even a saint. I like peanuts that much.
glad to hear the serious stuff has been ruled out.
Hang in there, and see if you can fix your bed. :)
This gif misses the frame where he makes the “B” sound.
that others me.
Babies. They are better than you.
Because they’re new. It’s not a total non-sequitur. :P
JL8 webcomic! Bunch of the DC characters in elementary school together. you should read it.
