I'm convinced the fact that raocow said faxanadu was a terrible game is what made it get so many negative votes and I'm

Which is weird, because even if I didn't know the game, to me the fact that raocow thinks it's horrible would be a #1 reason to vote for it

Last I checked a couple years ago, GBA netplay was terrible. Massive latency, incredibly low framerate, etc. I'm sure it's playable on a LAN, but beyond that, I'm pretty skeptical that it's improved massively. Probably not feasible, though I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

GBA multiplayer expects a super-low ping, because it's supposed to occur between two systems connected by a short cable. So netplay becomes near impossible when you have to try to emulate that same system between two computers basically any difference apart.

The thing everyone forgets about Faxanadu is that it is very unfriendly to unfamiliar players, and it's punishing in ways you wouldn't expect. I could go on at length about it, but here are the highlights (and they're somewhat spoilery):
  • The difficulty balance... isn't balanced at all. It lets up a little during the World of Branch, but for the most part it gets hard quick and keeps ramping up from there
  • Encourages counterproductive grinding early in the game
  • An optional area that's presented in dialogue as being mandatory, and completing it makes the game harder due to a programming error
  • Two dungeons with a Lost Woods mechanic back-to-back, one of which is the final dungeon
  • leveling up makes power ups last for less time
  • you can't honestly sit there and tell me you enjoy the second major area (the Burning Mist section, which contains aforementioned optional area)
[/spoiler]
And yes, I know what I'm talking about when I say all of that.
All of these are pretty much nitpicks except for the black onyx bullshit (and even then, there's a patch to fix it nowadays).
What do you mean it's "not balanced"? Yeah, you're going to die a lot. That's why the leveling system exists, the punishment for dying is very light.
World of mist is definitely the worst part of the game, but it's really not that bad. You don't even have to stay in it for very long at all unless you like exploring.
I don't understand what you're referring to by "lost woods mechanic", unless you mean that the last dungeon is a maze?
Also "encourages grinding"? Do you really think any new player is going to waste 1 hour killing hopping skulls just because they saw an optional "DEATH" selling for 10000 gold, when they can just walk past it?

I mean... I beat the game when I was 12 and I didn't understand 90% of the english in this game back then (except for the few parts that were in the "translation manual" bundled with the game). And you beat it as well, right? You figured the game out, so why would it be any more difficult for someone else?

How long did you take, how frustrated did you get, and did you have help from others (willing or not)

Hard to say. I did have someone playing it with me at first when I was very young (~7-8 yrs old?) so I did know a bit about it when I finally beat it by myself later (when I was about 12... I think). I don't remember getting frustrated at all though, but this is maybe selective and fuzzy memory !

But let me ask you again, you did beat it yourself, right? And on video no less. Why would it be harder than that for someone else?

Like, I understand what you mean. The game is not a breeze to go through by any means, there are a lot of parts where you'll die and need to try more than once, and some obscure shit that is only explained by a single NPC in a random inn. But is that really a bad thing? For me it's a lot more interesting and fun to actively have to pay attention, think for solutions, or getting my ass beat a few times, than a game where you just plow through everything mindlessly and forget a week after, like half the games of the top 10 winners are.

I did beat it on video. That was far from my first time playing it, which is the crux of my point. If rao's not played it before, he's going to have a hell of a time with it. If he has, then that would explain why his opinion is what it is.

Ultimately, while it's a game I enjoy, it's not something that rao's style of play would present favorably, particularly if he's unfamiliar with it.

Augh FML I wanted to play sqrt-1 blind at some point. This timing is unfavorable!
Hell I might just do it right now then.

yo, i guess this is as general of a thread as it gets, but is there a way to see what games he has lined up to do next? I'm working on patches for SCP and I'm not sure how much I should panic yet.

He's doing Mega Man next.

After that is Super Cat Planet.

So some amount of panic is warranted!

8 "robot masters" = eight days of videos, plus "Wily" stages = probably less than a week's worth. Also he records the day before.

I'd give you just less than 2 weeks. 10 days at worse. Oh, but if you really need more time, Super Cat Planet was actually a 9th place draw with Mischief Makers. So you could message raocow and ask him to play that first, which would give you anywhere from a few more weeks to a month IIRC how long that it.

though both 9th places are tied so if it helps you out, I can do the other 9th place first.
and this doesn,t consider the possibility of another short-term thing between games.

That actually sounds like more than enough time. Patch is coming along better than expected and feels way more polished. I got dis.

+2-4 days to my estimate because Mega Man √-1 just had an extra surprise and I'm not sure if he'll do 1 per day or double up depending on how easy/hard they are.

Man, the Mario jumping extra life is such a good point >_> Even if you know you have no hope of hitting eight enemies, you always want to try because it's just a micro-sized achievement that feels really good if you can get it. It's just like "aww yeah I'm the best" and yeah. That isn't allowed to go away :(

I clicked on this thread even though I've never paid any attention to any Patreon content, ever

e.: I guess I could take this opportunity to ask a question, viz.: is it possible to check the all-time total amount of money I've donated?
