Consider Yourself a Hero: Majority of games are beaten
On Fire: 3 beat or complete in a row
I totally agree. I once played Ages first via Virtual Console on my old 3DS. And I remember the struggle thinking "Where to I go? What do I do?". I don't know about others, but I ALWAYS need to resort to a guide at least once to get where I'm supposed to go.

Funny because last year, when I tried starting Twilight Princess blind, I thought "You know what? I'm going to read the guide as I play". But I don't find much fun in that, for some reason. Which is probably why I've still yet to beat it. Perhaps next time, I'll just play through myself as get out a guide should I get stuck.

Speaking of guides, given how I remember playing through both Oracle games well, I tried composing a hand-drawn guide myself I dub "Farore's Memory". Which is just a green notebook I found at the game store that looks like this [Link] . I actually want to start Seasons over and understand the story again, given it's been months since I last played Ages in small progress. And thought it would be nice to have my own guide to go over as I play. Still yet to finish it, though. And again, I have played those games before and love them, so I shouldn't have problems proceeding through again.

Didn't you play Oracle of Seasons last? Seems like you're replaying it, or is it just me?
(It's probably me)

But yeah, nice to see somebody who enjoys that Zelda as much as me. That's my more favorite Zelda other than Ages, mainly due to the season-shifting mechanics. Plus, from what I've read, it's probably straight-forward as you said since Ages revolves around puzzles more than combat, whereas Seasons is vice-versa.

I will replay that game again on my old GBC, then I'll try another go on Ages afterwards.
(Because 1. I love that game, 2. I need to refresh on story)

Nice to see you enjoying a Hat in Time. I really felt like it was a game that'd be up your alley! I look forward to going in again and doing the DLC!

I've only played a little of it, but I've enjoyed it thus far. I actually found sprites from it about 15 years ago, but had no idea what they were from; I just liked them. It was great to finally find out what the hell game they were in. No, right now, the budget's on lockdown, and probably will be at least until my lady is working enough hours to get benefits; her monthly premiums are currently more than an entire paycheck of hers, so there isn't much wiggle room.

I'm glad that you feel that way. If/when you ever feel like talking about anything, I'm here for you.

Okay, just as long as I'm not going crazy...er.

Agreed with the Devil situation. I've always found a few other bosses to be more annoying than him. Baroness Von Bon Bon was a slight example. But real-talk, I was really raging through Grim Matchstick and, god forbid, Dr Kahl's Robot!

In other words, have fun with those Zelda Oracle games. Those two are my most favorite Zeldas to play on the go. Even though I've yet to finish the other half of the whole story (I've beaten Seasons, but made small progress through Ages).

Since you haven't done the Color Dungeon yet and have the Magic Rod, it absolutely destroys the Color Dungeon boss.

Eagle's Tower is a doozy on the first playthrough. I think it's the one time I gave up for a while when I first played it back in '98.

Congrats on that Cuphead win!
I swear, when I beaten The Devil back then, it was extremely satisfying. I'm currently working on early Expert Mode, but I'll try livestreaming the run if my laptop can handle such a game.

Also that wait for the DLC is going to kill me. As per that E3 announcement just yesterday.

I suppose it is on the obscure side; it's almost well-known among the translation circles, but not much else. Engine, eh? I'm starting to wonder if I might take a crack at game design, myself; I'd probably be more eager if I had any kind of artistic talent. I live with an extremely talented artist, who unfortunately, has zero sense of urgency, so I can't really rely on her. But hey, good for you; I hope you sell a ton!

I wouldn't mind at all, and if there's ever anything you want or need to talk to me about, I'll always be here for you. I'm not the best at responding quickly - some days, I'm Cooking Mama; some days, I'm more Whiskey Mama - but a lot of people come to me to talk things out, and they always have my undivided and heartfelt attention; you would be no exception. Yeah, maybe something like this: [Link] but in a different color; I wouldn't go with green.

Hey, if you enjoy it, you enjoy it; no shame in that. I just don't feel the same is all; I'm not sure if that's a social anxiety thing or a self-loathing thing or a combination or what, but I'm currently trying to think of a nice way to tell my coworkers that I'd like to pass on next years confetti fucksplosion all over my desk. I don't want to hurt any feelings, and I do appreciate the thought, but I'd really just rather pass on the whole thing.

Oh wow; did I really not notice the stripes in the hair before? That's great! I like the other one, too; very seductive, but in a subtle way. And of course, since it's called Socks, I have to link this: [Link] My favorite living writer used to write for them, and maybe still does. Aw, what a cute little witch; I love her!
