  1. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    So, for the first time in a long time I'm stuck on a Pokemon game... Trying to solve this King of Bountiful Harvests mystery. It talks about a missing crown and it's obviously related to that new legendary. I found the location where the legendary is supposed to be but can't do anything there. There's a basket where some sort of offering has to be made so I guess you need to plant the Carrot Seeds or something but I can't find anywhere to plant them. Also the Mayor keeps asking me if I've checked the statue in town and I have checked that statue in Freezington multiple times yet every time I do so the NPCs act as if I haven't looked at the statue and I don't understand what I'm doing wrong here...

    Yeah, at this point in the game you have more options as to who your party is even if for storyline reasons you are locked into specific party members. The choices aren't incidental, one of the most memorable scenes in the entire game is coming up within the next few hours... right after the next major "dungeon" as it were. Also, just started Crown Tundra on Pokemon Sword (Switch). I've got to say, if this is what Gen 9 is going to be like for Pokemon then I am really looking forward to Gen 9!

    Anyway, FFVI is one of several games featured in my newest video because... well, It's EVERY game I've ever played. I realise how long this video is so here's a few yearly time stamps 0:00:00 - 2000 0:01:13 - 2001 0:02:36 - 2002 0:07:37 - 2003 0:11:09 - 2004 0:14:00 - 2005 0:19:05 - 2006 0:24:15 - 2007 0:32:07 - 2008 0:38:35 - 2009 0:45:09 - 2010 0:47:06 - 2011 0:50:59 - 2012 0:53:27 - 2013 0:56:44 - 2014 1:01:09 - 2015 1:04:38 - 2016 1:06:58 - 2017 1:12:13 - 2018 1:17:51 - 2019 1:20:16 - 2020

    Is this a bad time to mention that I played the GBA version of the game which has a re-translated script? Regardless of the script they can't really change too much of the main story beats. And yeah, Kefka is one of the greatest villains in gaming history. The story itself is a bit of a slow burner but it gradually gets a bit more involved as more characters show up and join your party, which winds up developing the gameplay even more. One of the reasons I love this game so much is how much freedom you have to customise your party. In the early stages you are railroaded in which party you have but after a certain character shows up it gives you a bit more freedom to choose which order you do the next part of the game in and then as the plot develops, that too is reflected in the gameplay and the game's biggest mechanic is withheld from you until you reach that point. That said, the plot does escalate eventually and when it does... it's the best part of the game!

    So it turns out rendering a 1 hour and 20 minutes video in Movie Maker is hard. I've had to render 4 parts individually and then move it all into one single video. In the meantime I've been playing a lot of Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii). In my hunt for the Green Stars I have got towards the end of World 4 with over 190 stars in total. Just need to do the second major Bowser level and it's on to World 5. The Grandmaster Galaxy is getting ever nearer... Also made a bit more progress on Super Mario 3D World (Wii U) after finally finishing the 7th level on World Flower. Though at this point finishing levels is not enough, I need to get all the Green Stars, all the stamps and I believe you need to hit the top of the flagpole in every level, which I think put me off trying to finish this game. Got to save those Cat Suits I guess...

    OK so Vaan was made to be the main character because higher ups at Square didn't think anything but a shonen young protagonist would be marketable at the time. Which obviously causes problems which I think the game is self aware of when Balthier refers to himself as the "leading man" and yet you could argue that Basch and Ashe carry the plot more often than not. Then again, the plot ends up being one of the weaker elements of this game imo, though I can see it was going for a different style of story telling. Also this game's world was originally introduced in Final Fantasy Tactics. They then made Vagrant Story and Tactics Advance which also take place in Ivalice before this game came out. Personally exploring this world was one of the more enjoyable parts of the game for me and I kind of set it up so that my party members had Gambits on but I had to do it manually so that the game just didn't play itself. Except for when the monsters killed each other...

    Highly, highly recommend the latter. But then I would say that... it's my favourite game of all time. Anyway, made a good start on Green Stars on Super Mario Galaxy 2. Got all of the Sky Station Galaxy ones and got two of the three Yoshi Star Galaxy Green Stars. Working on doing World 1.

    Extensively working on this "Every game I've ever played" video for Youtube... and when I checked to see if anyone had done anything like this I couldn't find too much on Youtube though the search results may be skewed... The video is well over an hour long as things stand. Going to have to timestamp for viewer purposes I reckon. Anyway, here's a few tweets I put out during that time. In case you're wondering this all has lead to something productive on gaming front... I finally have unlocked the green stars in Super Mario Galaxy 2. Yes after 10 years. The stumbling blocks for me Starwise? The no damage run of Bowser Jr.'s Boomsday Machine and the second Fire Flower crate destroying game. I finally managed to do it after countless struggles and even then I don't know how I actually managed to do it in the end... the most annoying kind of level clear! So I proceeded to get the last remaining stars from the Special World levels and beat Bowser again... officially halfway to 100%ing Galaxy 2 now. Might work on trying to 100% all the 3D Mario games from this point on. Got a feel for it with Sunshine and past the stumbling block that saw me bench Galaxy 2.
  9. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    Been playing a large variety of games recently, albeit mostly in short bursts. Why? I'm current in the process of compiling the largest Youtube video I've ever made, to celebrate 20 years since I started playing video games it's going to be a kind of slideshow retrospective on every single video game I've ever played. Yes, I'm insane for trying... It has lead to some interesting things though, like remembering that Donkey Konga has a story... Most of my gaming time has been on a dangerous addiction to Magic Arena. Live services these days I know right? Especially bad in light of the "Walking Dead" Secret Lair that they've announced that the community has deemed problematic to the health of game. The problem is that if these sell then it just means crossovers are going to become a lot more regular. Strong rumours of a Harry Potter crossover next year...

    Officially 100% completed Super Mario Sunshine. Considering how infamous the Pachinko and poisonous lilypad levels are I'm surprised I never had any memory of doing either... turns out that I never actually did either level. I couldn't find the Pachinko level and never did the task of getting to the lilypad level. So in a mammoth gaming session when I was getting all the blue coins I noticed a shortfall in the amount of shines I had so I figured that I was missing a fair amount in Delfino Plaza. That was indeed correct. So yeah, I used internet guides to help me find the blue coins and after wrestling with Corona Mountain (worst final Mario level ever!) I was able to do this: Taking a break from playing briefly to work on a Youtube video now.
  11. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    To think... other than Smash Bros. this is the only Metroid representation we got on Wii U. Anyway, update time, Mario Sunshine is going pretty well for collecting blue coins, I have all the blue coins on Bianco Hills, Ricco Harbor, Gelato Beach, Pinna Park and, thankfully, Sirena Beach! But I think there's still quite a few of these things to go, this is going to take a while... Even longer when I'm also playing Magic Arena in between. There's an upcoming banned and restricted announcement and it looks like Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath is going to be banned, so I guess I'm going to have to get the most out of my 4 copies of the card before it gets banned.

    What is this? A gaming diary update WITHOUT any videos to post? I must be mad... So yeah, after finishing Timesplitters: Future Perfect I took some time out to do some of the extra content, mainly the multiplayer leagues. About halfway through the second league now. but there's something else I wanted to play... Inspired by the release of Super Mario 3D Allstars I decided to go back and boot up my Gamecube to play Super Mario Sunshine. That's right, I'm playing it on it's original console, not this fancy new Switch version everyone else is playing right now I never 100%ed this game unlike 64 and Galaxy so now seemed like a good time to boot up my old save file and do so. Let's see... Hmm, it looks like I was on 89 Shines. Well, that number is about 101 now. I was missing a Secret Shine on Ricco Harbor, the 100 coin Shine on Gelato Beach, all of the Secret Shines on the last three levels as well as the 100 coin Shines and I hadn't even done Pianta Village's final main Shine. That's a lot! I think after I beat the game by beating Corona Mountain I was ready to move on and play something else, I bought a lot of games that year and the seventh Shadow Mario mission basically opened up the endgame so I went and did that. So as a result I'm on track to finally getting 100% in this game. There's just one major problem to that... BLUE COINS Also... It's amazing just how buggy Sunshine can actually be sometimes. Clips are seemingly easy to do, some of which take you completely out of bounds. If the game really was rushed then it explains a lot about why it is the way it is.
  13. Microsoft bought Zenimax/Bethesda

    Who knows? Maybe this is Microsoft's intent to become the Disney of video games by buying up all major franchises in gaming. Maybe they're getting buddy with Nintendo in an attempt to buy them out :|
  14. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    Well, after over two months uploading this and posting the clips on here... the last episode is finally on here. Here's the Finale to Let's Play Metroid Prime 3: Corruption - Goodbye Forever Dark Samus While I was at it, I also finished Timesplitters Future Perfect albeit on easy difficulty. Still a lot of content to do on that game. That being said, inspired by the release of 3D Allstars recently I'm in the mood to get back to playing some older Mario games that I've already beaten with a view to do the extra content.
  15. Sad day. While I haven't played much of his games (only really a bit of Rayman 3) I have heard a lot about him and how he was one of the most genuinely creative developers in the industry, kind of a Nintnedo-like developer in many ways. Ultimately I feel like Ubisoft as a publisher did not really stand for the stuff the franchises and games he created for them as time went along, the sex scandals won't have helped things either imo but I always felt that Ancel was a big part of the reason why there is such a split in views on Ubisoft, as both a company that makes genuine good games and a company that is just like every other big triple A publisher in the industry in it's excessive greediness and annualisation. At least, that's my take on it.
