You know what's a pain though?

I need to find, on the spot, something for the title, the description, the tags, and the site. Twice. Every update.

This is why sometimes it is very weak and nonsensical!

It's alright raocow, you have a site to manage and you're playing two games at once. Tags are the least of your worries.

Also, thanks to the people who helped me out. I was finally able to get Toughness 1.

Yeah... You mentioned the ghosts, so staring at it, it does kinda look like one. Trippy. Also, spoilerific tags were referenced and that makes me happy. :lol: Confusion about the desync may come from people watching the embedded videos directly, instead of going to Youtube.

Anyways. For some reason, I just love when raocow just stumbles across secrets and laughs. And he stumbled across a lot today. StrangeCastle, the Bottom, and CloudRun... not to mention a couple hearts. CloudRun looks awesome, so I'm waiting expectantly for tomorrow's vid. Cheers.

I know I said that I wasn't going to talk about CloudRun yet, but...

Prepare to be surprised.

I never read the tags, but when I noticed that post, I looked at today's video's tag out of boredom, and I lol'd.

I watched the videos on the raocow.com home page and NOT through youtube, so...yeah, neither description nor tags are shown there!

It's probable he drew the ColdKeep background long before he even considered that part of the plot, so I wouldn't expect much. It's probably worth noting that the tollbooth guys used to be yellow birds until... after he started making FireCage, I think.

Come to think of it, I wonder what's up with the Bonus guy?

Oh, and the new songs (StrangeCastle, the other new area song, and both special boss songs) are really loud compared to the original ones. If Matt's reading this, he should really fix that.

But... The tags and description are the best part of the video! The rest of it is all just marketing.

Which is why the official "raocow dot com archive" that i'm building for siteadmin is going to have video descriptions show up on this site

Probably because it wouldn't really make sense that the ghosts didn't come after them in the time that they're waiting.

No, people just over-hype how "RIDICULOUSLY EXTREMELY IMPOSSIBLE" the boss is.

I had a load of trouble with the blue sparkles myself, I'm not really sure why.

Like I said before, check out in Blackcastle. It appears after you talk to Ms. pink chicken for a reason, you're supposed to go in as soon as you see it, but you avoided it.



Actually, yeah, in a way you kind of ruined it since you already have 7 golden orbs now.



If you do go back there, just go (loledit) one room in, how about. You'll understand everything I'm talking about soon.

Okay so I'm retarded. For some reason I thought the recent patches changed [the thing] from 7 to 10, but it was probably, y'know, the fact that I was replaying it on masterful. Goddamnit.

Pfft, people just need to stop sucking at simple "Jump on the patterned projectiles."

Maybe it's just me (and obviously raocow) and my years of playing Platformers but that's some pretty standard stuff, yo.

well its kinda late now but that cloudrun boss is a lot easier when you dive-bomb the missiles. It is timed up perfectly so that you can divebomb every missile in the middle of the screen and go straight up to hit the boss. Without divebombing you bounce too slowly and probably don't get to the upper missiles in time. Though I guess that boss isn't too much trouble regardless.

Cloudrun's boss was pretty random, really.

Not if you read the one book in the Library about him. Hell, he's the least random boss in the game thanks to that.

Yeah, that was my point. He only would have made them birds in the first place if he had "forgotten" about one of the most important parts of the plot, so it's more likely he hadn't come up with it yet.

Also, about BlackCastle: Difficult requires 9 gold orbs. Regular is the one that requires 7. So don't worry, it's literally not possible for raocow to go in and have that cutscene before fighting TheNinja in The Curtain, unless he does something really bizarre and gets to IceCastle without doing The Curtain.

Oh yeah, and Fluffy (unlike every other boss, that's an official name - I was calling him "CloudMachine" until then) is the other boss that can be skipped, by jumping on his missiles to the ledge on the right. Of course, if you're bad at jumping up on them to hit him, it's probably even harder.
