Surely THIS will be the final floor!
Under Construction... plays here, another take on the Chimera Lab theme, which is in itself a take on the Osohe Castle theme. Ominous!
Thank you thank you tip your waiter
embroiders all the walls
Awww little capsule dogs
WHY DO I EXIST
Right with the pointy part of the shoe, ouch
MY LUCKY STREAK CONTINUES UNABATED
ANOTHER 3% CHANCE ITEM DROPPED
If you REALLY want to get completionist you can farm Love Walkers to get a ribbon for Boney too but eh I just got the one
me and all my twin brothers work here
JUST KEEPIN YOU ON YOUR TOES
Let's see how you do buddy
Feel a little guilty about this
Business pushing people off the edges, sure
Lucas staring at him uncomprehendingly
the cheesecake building's next door
IS THIS HOW YOU DO IT
guy just siiiiiigh
I BET SOMEONE WILL COME HELP YOU BEFORE YOU FALL TO YOUR DEATH
even angrier than before
I think the Rhinocerocket Mk II gets Even More Intense Guys, which is a variant off a theme I already like a ton, haha. Just with some blippy parts in the middle of it.
haha with a little heart
MY RAINBOW GLOVES ARE TOO AWESOME THOUGH
Everyone just >:(
I've mentioned before the few lines in this that kind of blew me away and made me doubletake, and this was definitely one of them. MOTHER 3 CONTINUES TO PULL THE RUG OUT FROM UNDER YOU JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON it does these great surprises so well, I love it.
just one casual line and all of sudden you don't know WHAT to think about Pokey
What, don't want to swim with the hippos?
Okay THIS time this is the right floor for sure
Automated... is mostly a random sequence of beeps that will drive you crazy if you're looking for rare drops. Unfortunately this floor has a bunch of em.
Man can you imagine how overwhelming and bizarre this must look to all of them? They've never seen any kind of advanced technology before, I bet they could barely wrap their minds around the idea of a computer. AND THEN SUDDENLY
Hey, they finished the Almost Mecha-Lion!
don't look at my butt
awww DARN IT
The white pigmasks drop two items, one's a 15% chance for a King Burger, and the other's a 3% chance for an Awesome Cape. GUESS WHAT I ENDED UP GETTING LIKE TEN OF
hey how's it goin
You may remember Octobots from EarthBound!
oh man tripout city here i come
man i would eat the heck out of that
Haha I WILL BEAT YOU TO DEATH WITH THIS CHEWTOY
Yesss PK Ground is one of the last things Kumatora learns and will come in handy in the future.
Because BAM YOUR SHIELDS ARE USELESS, HA HA
it doesn't work great on everything though but for a few things coming up it'll definitely be useful
ARGH YOU STUPID ROBOTS
I HATE YOU
UGH NO MY MEMENTO WHYYYY
we'll never know duster's astrological sign
oh dang that's my phone, gotta go
Drown yourself for the greater good!
This can go a ways to explaining the weird gibberish some of the people in town were saying before. Hey, don't these tubes look kinda familiar? I wonder if Andonuts was involved in the development of these too.
These other chickens tho, what posers
We saw before tho with people like Isaac that some people WANT to be pigmasks, so that means the army is made up of both volunteers and people brainwashed into service.
put out the ultimate chimera first
I'm not buying it
No, not his catchphrase!
This guy just wants to see one really
haha CMON LUCAS HELP A DUDE OUT
PULL HIM OUTTA THERE
By this point in the game you've gotta have it memorized
No Lime Koolaid for me thanks
Whatever Pokey I'm just gonna stay down here with the tubies and play solitaire
Hey wait, are you the gum chewing guy??
DON'T DO IT
YOU'LL JUST BECOME NUGGETS
i'd recommend against it
Even the Save Frog!
I wonder if these are Flint's sheep.
Man don't eat in the tube what are you doing
DREAM OF MANY
Joking aside can you imagine how utterly disturbing this would be to all of them, just to be walking around all these glowing tubes filled with people and animals that can all talk and move and watch you, chanting about Pokey
Nightmares for life
ARGH YOU HORRIBLE ROBOTS
Ionia gave me her last memory AND I WASTE IT ON A DUMB ROBOT
FINALLY now I never have to deal with these pains in the butt again
A fancy yellow bandana just for you Duster honey
(just like the one Wes used to call him at the very beginning??)
I wonder why Horus of all things? Come to think of it, most of the other bandanas were bird themed (Kite, Sparrow, Swallow, Chick) and Horus usually has a falcon head, maybe that's where it comes from.
I cut all of this out so you can't really appreciate it but I seriously spent like an hour fighting these white pigmasks to try and get the awesome cape and THEY KEPT MOCKING ME BY REFUSING TO DROP IT
None of the items gave me as much trouble as this one.
Hey, Jeff had that! I used it all the time, haha
At this point I got frustrated and quit for a bit. Then of course, in the very first white pigmask battle I get into when I reload...
WHAT well I'll take it, haha
oooo bunch of protections
Lucas lookin pretty kingly here
Nothing like a Syreen bustier but who cares
Always so hard to decide between these
RARE ITEM DROPS CHECK
Man I just noticed that Duster's defense is like 40 points ahead of everyone else's, dang.
After a break and now that that's done, let's pick up where we left off.
I realized I never did get a shot of this from the front before SO HERE YOU GO
Some people wonder if the failed space program is related to the white ship, but who knows?
And still nothing in the memo! I guess by this point in the game they'd dropped the mechanic and didn't bother writing any more.
CAN THIS BE IT? CAN THIS BE IT??
Oh hey, that's right!
My mental A button hammer is the best.
I DON'T GET IT
The audience is just painted on the wall
DARN IT POKEY WHERE ARE YOU
after slowly walking around
Try Kind of Hard! for the minigames, just cheery and silly.
My turn! TIME TO HAMMER EVERYONE
Or talk to my teammates instead
Duster confused by this whole idea
WIN, WIN FOR YOUR LIFE
Incidentally none of these cue cards were translated originally.
And... stop! for the game end fanfare
I worked really hard
a fresh outlook eh
CAN'T HANDLE MY INTENSITY, EH
better do as it says
Okay this time for sure
As Lucas rolls his eyes
It took me a while to figure this out when I was first playing, haha. I did it straight and won and failed, then screwed up on purpose and failed, and I was like WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME
Then read up on it and i was like oh
I'll get you
Suddenly want to play Prof. Layton for some reason.
I VOTE WE PUNCH EVERYONE TO DEATH
Duster getting reeeeealll
As Lucas falls on his face
How's it goin over there
Shall I join you
I was admiring the cardboard crocodiles
BUT WE'D HAVE SUCH GREAT PARTIES
take your sweet time buddy
Up we gooo
Oh man rapidtapping
I am pro at rapidtapping
I like how there's a tiny scale model of New Pork City in here for no reason.
This might be the meanest thing Duster's ever said so far, haha
indulge my fist in a second
Lucas rolls his eyes
Want me to take it seriously eh
CAN'T I DO BOTH
Lucas with giant muscley biceps
"Mom" tattoo on one
And we even rolled out the red carpet!
And the nice couch!
I guess they all just slept on top of each other
SURELY POKEY WILL FINALLY BE BEHIND THIS DOORWAY
but you'll have to wait and seeee
