Current game status [Tuesday 25th April 2006 at 8:50 pm]

[Tags|, , , , , , ]
[Playing |Microsoft - Music 1 [Age of Empires]]

Following the lead of nendil, current status of games that I'm actively playing through:

Baten Kaitos| | __________________10%
Age of Empires (+ Rise of Rome)| ___________________5%
Myst IV| | | | ________________20%
Ocarina of Time (N64)| | | | | | | | | | __________50%
Populous: The Beginning| | | _________________15%
Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | ____80% (on hold due to sister having GBA)
A Link to the Past| | | | ________________20% (on hold for same reason)

Other games that I plan to complete or play through again at some point, along with why I haven't completed them yet (I'm not listing games that are as complete as they'll ever be, e.g. all emblems on SA2B ain't going to happen):

Metroid Prime 2: EchoesGot utterly pwned by the spider ball boss. Several times.
Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun (+ Firestorm)Always got stuck somewhere around the middle of the main campaign
Majora's Mask (N64 or 'cube)Got utterly pwned by the third form of the final boss.
Sonic 3D (PC)Didn't play it that much, and always forgot to back up the save
Pandora's BoxJust needs time put into it
Worms BlastEvil! Evil, I say!
Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II (+ Mysteries of the Sith)Dunno why I never beat this.
Warzone 2100I think I got uberpwned somewhere.
Zork NemesisI think I got horribly stuck, and/or lost the save. Oh, and it takes a dislike to Windows 2000 or XP.

Oh, and a list of completed (at least main story sequence or majority of items, so SA2B counts even though I don't have 180 emblems) games:

  • Sonic Adventure 2: Battle
  • Curse of Monkey Island
  • Myst
  • Riven
  • Myst III: Exile
  • Ocarina of Time (several times, N64 and 'cube)
  • Ocarina of Time: Master Quest (several times, 'cube)
  • The Wind Waker
  • The Minish Cap
  • Freelancer
  • Tales of Symphonia
  • Ikaruga
  • Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles
  • Metroid Prime
  • Starfox Adventures
  • Starfox Assault
  • Jazz Jackrabbit 2
  • Hocus Pocus (shareware episode)
  • Duke Nukem (original 3 episodes)

Those are by no means exhaustive lists, but it gives you some idea of what I've completed and what the backlog's like.

Majora is cake if you've got the Fierce Deity Mask. Zzzap zzap zap and it's all over.

True, however the Fierce Deity mask requires me to have all the other masks, including the Kafei/Anju sequence, and to successfully complete the moon dungeouns. I've never managed the former, and my sister got defeated by the Goron dungeoun on the latter.

Have you located a good walkthrough? And is it the last ramp on the Goron dungeon that's the problem? I think that there's a trick to that which involves not steering... or something. I haven't played MM in years

The trick actually is not steering, however we only found that out a year or two after last playing MM. Maybe I'll have a try at it on her save, and see if I can manage it.

I always get so happy when I actually complete games because I have a terrible habit (particularly with Final Fantasy games) to just kind of give up at the final battle. And even though I got it when it first came out, I still haven't finished it... I must be retarded or something because I can't figure the fourth dungeon out, heh. I haven't even gotten it turned upside down yet!

Five years or so and no completion is nothing, though. It took me ten years to beat A Link to the Past. But, like, I was barely in kindergarten when I began playing it with my grandparents :D

Oops. "It" in the second sentence refers to Majora's Mask.
