    awesome ending. I gobbled up a fire ball or something, then shot it across the screen, it hit multiple plants along the way 'til I had 98 lives, then I got 99 lives by hitting the top of the flagpole.

    Just broke 10,000 VR points in MK8Deluxe. Bought a Switch Lite in March for something to do during the lockdown period, so I made it in 9 months. Not breaking any records, but I'm happy with that.

    I'm working on getting the platinum for Crash Team Racing. The biggest problem comes with beating the second (of four) time trial ghosts in each and every level (31 total). It requires precision that I normally don't have. But after about 8 hours I beat one of the hardest time trials. So I'll eventually be able to get this damn platinum!

    Pretty cool. My best friend in junior high had what I think was an Atari 400. Maybe it was the 800, but it wasn't the XL like yours, that didn't come out until we were in high school. (I graduated '85.)

    A 2600 is the best I ever had at home. Got to play with Tandy TRS-80 and an Apple II at school though. I once made a game in Radio Shack Basic to mimic Atari's Battle Tank. It worked, just no sound.

    Kinda cool for those who play Ark on PC and Switch. I backed up my Switch Ark save via checkpoint, and then replaced the island, localplayer, and arktribe files on the switch sd card, with the corresponding files from the PC save folder. Then I restored the Ark backup in checkpoint. WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LOAD THE ISLAND (maybe if I played around with some settings in the island file), but what I did next was delete island from the Ark game menu, and start a new one. While of course none of the island info (created structures and stored items) is there from the PC (nor previous Switch island, which I haven't played much anyway), but all of my player/survivor info was carried over from the PC, leveling, engrams, physical features, etc. Still pretty cool IMO, since now if I start playing on the Switch more, I wont have to level up to 101 again.

    Today I beat down Zalera, the Death Seraph, in Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age with a combination of a good Quickening Chain and several applications of Scathe and 1000 Needles to the face. I wanted to make sure I was really ready for a lot of the upcoming Marks and Elite Marks, especially Trickster and my bro GREG.

    Before then, I warmed up by blasting everything I could from the Port of Balfonheim Teleport Crystal to the Tchita Uplands Teleport Crystal with Scathe spells.

    Today was a good day. I'm very glad I made the choice to pick up Scathe before heading to Giruvegan.

    I haven't played the zodiac age as of yet despite owning it for the switch. I beat the original game many years ago. a beta copy of the game was leaked for the ps2, so I actually beat the game before it came out. I don't remember too much about it, but I did think the story and voice acting were top notch.

    I played the original for the PS2 years ago when I was in my last year of high school. I remember it very, very fondly; it was one of the two games that solidified my bond with my best friend from high school, the other being Dragon Quest VIII.

    (As an aside, I was so hyped when DQ8 was released on the Nintendo 3DS, and doubly hyped when "Eight" was announced to be one of Yuusha's costumes in Smash Ultimate.)

    I had never really played the IZJS edition of the game before, so having been playing this so intensely, I'm surprised at all the quality of life features I would have missed in the original game. Tonight I'm going to spend some time doing more hunts so I can cap off my Esper gathering with Exodus before I head to Giruvegan. Last on the list before ol' Tasty Arrow will be the Trickster hunt.

    (Good grief, I think Trickster is the most beautiful White Chocobo I've ever seen in the franchise, but he's a bitch to fight... at least he's not The Red Comet, though, from what I've heard, that thing's a NIGHTMARE to fight in XIV...)

    the only thing I disliked about ff 12 is that the best equipment requires you not to open certain chests throughout the game. that is just stupid. dq viii (one of my favorite games). :D

    Ah, yes, the Zodiac Spear. The good thing is, that's no longer a problem in the IZJS and Zodiac Age editions. You can always get the Zodiac Spear from a chest in the Henne Mines, now, in the Special Charter Shaft right outside the room where you fight Zodiark, the thirteenth Esper, but the chest that spawns it only spawn 1% of the time. So, there's that.

    I find it's just easier to head into the Barheim Passage, anyway, and grab the Whale Whisker and Dragon Whisker to begin with.
