Pikmin

Made by Nintendo, released in 2001

Day 10 - The Distant Spring



Current Zar note: I did this LP in 2008! I left my write-up mostly unchanged.




y halo thar tons of red pikmin sprouts

100 Pikmin you seen it here

(actually there are some loose ones lying around but anyway)

i'll GET you

First gotta put some of these away, since you can't pull out anymore if you already have 100 out.

14 blues... that's not too bad.

There are two ways you can do this, I think, but I'm going to do things the easier way. :B

Throw your Pikmin on this ledge here...

Call them from the other side...

And your Pikmin will follow you along the wall! :D Much easier than walking this narrow pathway, let me tell you.

HAHA ALL MINE ALL MINE

Zoomed out~

Darn it, I need to make more Pikmin. Lame.

WELL LET'S EXPLORE ANYWAY

SHEARGRUBS!!!

BWAHAHA

Pikmin: WHATDOWEDOWHATDOWEDOWHATDOWEDO D: D: D:

Fun things about Sheargrubs: If they land in the water, they'll slowly drown! But they'll usually take off before they die though.

There it goes!

TAKE THAT

You guys can take care of this here while I go do... thing.

Yes, you gotta pluck them all. FUN! Although the fun part is that they were mostly buds when I picked them, and then by the time I got to the end some were flowers. Score!

YOU'RE GOIN DOWN

The best way to deal with these is just stand about this distance away and throw five or six Pikmin on the Wollywog and wait. It'll jump up, then knock them off. Throw six more on it while it's on the ground. As long as you time it right, you should be able to kill it without too many casualties. :D

IT WAS THE SIZE OF HIS BODY

Really, I should be doing this with Blues. I dunno, I guess I just got bored here or something. Oh no wait, all my Blues are making that bridge. Haha.

Darn it I could have sworn I had more than twenty with me before. Ah well whatever.

YELLOWS WILL REACH THIS HIGH LEDGE!

Olimar's a mechanic! :O Well I guess he'd have to be if he travels a lot by himself.

My Pikmin fell off into the water nooooo

I tried to call them back but the ledge was too steep. D:

D:

well whatever I'll just make some more blues or something

If you back up and run towards something while throwing, you toss your Pikmin much farther than normal. That's what I intended to do here to have some reds help the blues along.

ALTHOUGH IT'D GO MUCH BETTER IF I DIDN'T FALL IN THE WATER LIKE AN IDIOT doooooy

Most pointless Pikmin deaths ever.

This bridge is dedicated to the five red Pikmin who were thoughtlessly killed during its construction. RIP.

Clear some of this random stuff out of the way here.

IT'S GETTING DARK ALREADY NOOO

Well I'm going to get ONE piece out of this hooha darn it.

SHENANIGANS!

16's not so bad, hmm.

Hey, there are two Pikmin out here.

Aha! Come home to me, Pikmin~

One Pikmin saved!

Look very closely at this. I couldn't see anything, the screen as tiny as it is when I play, but there is a loose blue Pikmin here, right in that V where the wall ledge was that I used to get to the Repair Bolt. I didn't see him until I watched the replay video for this day, but he blended in with the background and as you can see here, it's VERY hard to see the blue dot there. D:

BLUE PIKMIN WHERE AAAAARE YOOOOOU

I checked my radar for like FIVE MINUTES looking for this poor Pikmin, and unable to see him, I whistled frantically everywhere I could think of as the day counted down. COME BACK TO ME WHERE ARE YOU D:

PIIIIIIIIIIIKMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN

I tried, pikmin. I tried. :<

I like that this is kind of the MOVE ON YOU DOOFUS message, and I got it for this new area I just unlocked. :B WAY TO GO, SELF. What a pointless day. Although I did get at least one piece.

That poor lost Pikmin. :< Otherwise I would have broken even.

WHERE SHALL WE GO NEXT TIME? WHO KNOWS!!!

And our video for today!
