Pretty sure that Broski is supposed to be pronounced bro-skee. It's a variant of the term bro!

Also, if anyone was wondering, Broski can't swim... Or surf, for that matter, if I'm remembering right.
Why don't you eat me?

I am perfectly tasty...

Re: pholtos' LP place - Mushroom Kingdom Meltdown and Ham-Ham Heartbreak

Postby pholtos » 4 years ago

With Mushroom Kingdom Meltdown ending I figure I should use this thread to start giving my thoughts on games.

So MKM as it stands in my mind is a hack with a lot of flaws and not much that stands out. The hack is filled with rampant slowdown, a lack of midpoints and bad design all over the place.
The hack basically features no difficulty curve, going all over the place, having the easiest final world of any hack I think I've ever played that was longer than one world.
The boss fights ranged from a lone enemy that was easy to defeat all the way to things like the magikoopa roulette key fight. Some of the boss fights were frustrating due to the arena in which the fight takes place, including the magikoopa magic show breakout and the pelican in the room with instant death.
In terms of things this hack does well, I'd say the level design is fairly solid, if you ignore autoscroll levels and the lack of midpoints, the platforming on it's own works fairly well. The time travel idea works fairly well as well, with the use of changed graphics.

So... I watched your LPs of the Lost Vikings games a couple months ago, and now I'm working my way through your Metroid Fusion LP. You are... actually quite funny. I probably laughed harder than I should have when the first X appeared during the prologue, and you shouted "Yellow thing!" It also amuses me how you often say "I don't appreciate that!" when enemies damage you. :P

Re: pholtos' LP place - Super Mario Omega and Spyro 2

It's been a long time but I'm finally getting back into LPing. Here's me playing a doofy game from my childhood. Should hopefully finish up Spyro 2 next week.


Gonna repost the explanation I put in the comments about what happened with this long break.
I think it was about time I had a long explanation on what the heck was up with this giant break I had and why I sometimes go on these giant breaks.

Well it all comes down to this. I have autism. Aspergers Syndrome to be exact. To boil it down further, I essentially have these problems:
Hypersensitivity of my five senses
Emotional Hypersensitivity (I experience emotions much stronger than normal)
Hypersensitivity to pain
Trouble talking to others face to face, both speaking and interpreting how others are feeling based on basic social cues.

Which for the most part isn't too bad, except when it comes to finding and keeping a job. Which is what this giant break was caused by. So back in November of last year I was working with vocational rehab on the possibility of finding work. I had gotten close to the point where I'd start applying but the stress had been building and I had basically had heaps of anxiety. It was then that I requested a long pause from getting help to sort out my anxiety, and it was also at that point I quit recording.

Fast forward a few months and I'm overall feeling a bit better, but the desire to record still wasn't there, and I need that desire to record, otherwise I just feel so meh while recording, which just doesn't work for me. It also didn't help I live with a bunch of people and so my time to record is limited a little bit.

Fast forward to May, and I start working with vocational rehab again. This time reaching the point where I actually had an interview and to my surprise, got a job... which after one day I had to quit, due to excessive pain. (Which disappoints me, given that it took so long to reach that point.) The cause? Couldn't handle sitting on a metal stool for as long as I needed to.

So that's basically what's been going on. I'd like to truly apologize for having gone missing for all this time but it was sort of needed. Thanks for being so patient with me.

Re: pholtos' LP place - Double Time and Varying Secondary Games

Postby pholtos » 7 months ago

It's been ages since I last updated this thing. A lot has happened.

The main being I have stopped doing SMW Romhacks as a main thing. I suffered some major burnout, so in the end I decided to start up a completely different idea for a series, called Double Time. Double Time is pretty literal, I play classic video games but up the game speed to 200%. It's gone pretty well so far, though at this point I've only done SMW fully, and am partway through Kirby's Adventure.

Here's everything I've done since last time I updated:
Romhacks:
VIP 1
SMW Beta
Yoshiro
A Strange Mission
Super Mario Bros. 3X
Mushroom Kingdom Meltdown 2
VIP 2
Double Time:
SMW Double Time
Secondary LPs:
Matchbox Emergency Patrol
Kirby and the Amazing Mirror
Dust An Elysian Tail
Terranigma

Current LPs:
Kirby's Adventure Double Time
Wind Waker Randomizer
