Pikmin

Made by Nintendo, released in 2001

Day 24 - The Final Trial (Emperor Bulblax round two)



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




THE FINAL CONFRONTATION!

ANYWAY this is the final day for Pikmin! I didn't loaf around too much, but hopefully I've given you a good feel for the game itself so that you can play it yourself and be delighted. Because it is delightful.

TIME TO END THIS!!

Final Trial always makes me nervous. :O That music is so sinister.

BACK TO WORK

Oh dang, I didn't catch this before, but on occasion Bulblax will crouch down and jump into the air, and land on any Pikmin nearby. He gets this TERRIFYINGLY INTENSE LOOK ON HIS EYES BEFORE HE DOES IT and he does it quick, so it can be hard to avoid if you're not prepared. You can see him do it in the video.

MOST TERRIFYING SCREENCAP EVER D: D: D:

you know what never mind i'm outta here

:P

blarg

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVE MARIAAAAAA

HURRAY HAPPY MUSIC

brings home a Pikmin for them hee hee. well a Pikmin wouldn't be able to breathe on Hocotate. :< BUT IT'S THE THOUGHT THAT COUNTS

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

that's whatcha get.

YES HAHAHAHA YES HAHA

All that work for a little piggybank, hee hee.

:D

Spaceship Completion!

YAY

Olimar: :D :D

I lightened these next ones so you can see what's going on a bit better. Maybe it's just my monitor but they were crazy dark on my screen. :O

Spaceship Completion! Now to Outer Space! is just kind of sweet and a bit sad and it's totally a variation on the end of the day theme and i love that kind of thing and awwww. I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH.

Pikmin?

WHERE YOU GOING?

bye pikmin :<

WE DON'T GET IT

sigh

SHOONK

THEY'RE HOLDING HANDS AWWWW

you can actually hear me squeal girlishly about this in the video :B

AWWWW

KILL THE BULBORB

TEAR ITS FLESH

DRINK ITS BLOOD

Escape, And Hokotara Star! is just happy and triumphant and hee. A REAL FEEL OF PRIDE AND ACCOMPLISHMENT AND JOY AT OLIMAR ESCAPING AND :D Although hokotara, hmm.

BYE

More Onions! :O A light blue one, a green one, an orange one...HMM.

I WILL NEVER FORGET THE PIKMIN AND THEIR STRANGE WAYS

HOPEFULLY I HAVE NOT FOREVER ALTERED THEIR CULTURE INTO A BLOODTHIRSTY ONE, STRIKING OUT AGAINST ALL WHO OPPOSE THEM

Although really it is rather sweet to think that Olimar finally galvanized the Pikmin to defend themselves on their own, aww.

SHOOOOO

All Records of an Accident is just kind of chill music.

18 in 30 days? When was that? OH WAIT that was when I was trying for the bad ending, I remember now. Man I gotta do a better run of this sometime, I know I can get under 16 days.

Worst at surviving Pikmin, but best in Pikmin deaths? I guess I just didn't make a lot of Pikmin in general this time around. :B

Haha these are a bit hard to read here. BUT I WAS MOSTLY RIGHT ON THE UNNECESSARY PIECES. Well it turns out the analog computer IS necessary after all, but eh. I WAS CLOSE. IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER THAT MUCH.

SAVE DAT YO

Credit time! The track that plays here is called Trip Directors, and that is such an awesome title for credits music. :D

It's just kind of sweet sounding, mellow music. I like the little backbeat to it. Hee.

AH, BACK WHEN WE FIRST MET AN ONION, HOW YOUNG WE WERE THEN has it really been almost six months? My god :O

pikpik?

FLY HIGH

way to just blend in there, blue

GOTTA GO BYE

BUT IS THAT ALL?

FINALLY, WE'LL FIND OUT WHAT ALL THOSE WEIRD CREATURES WE SAW WERE! The track that plays for this is called All Records of a Living Thing, and I love it to death. It's just so cheery and upbeat and happy and it has Olimar's whistle in it and yeeee. AND THE ENDING, THE ENDING OF IT IS JUST :D :D :D :D

i dunno if its normal to love the sound of olimar's whistle this much

Anyway WHAT WAS THIS THING CALLED?

So you finally find out what those things you were fighting were called. :D I was so fascinated by these when I first beat the game. You run into Armored Cannon Beetle Larvae in Pikmin 2 if I recall, and they're irritating. Frankly I don't regard the Cannon Beetles as much of a threat, myself.

What could be in here

AGH

IT HAS NO FACE!

Thus why you need Onions to kill that sucker. :D

my god that's a lot of snagrets :O

Which you do NOT see in Pikmin 2! You do see the Pileated Snagret though, which is also annoying. Frigging snagrets.

SO MANY MYSTERIES

will come after your toes in the night

It's true! According to Pikmin 2, they're a relative of the Breadbug. :O And make good sausages.

AAAAAAAAAAA

blaaaaah

I hate you guys so much.

How would that even work?

I was all :O I NEVER SAW THAT the first time I beat the game, and this was very misleading in making you think it appears in the Forest Navel. THAT IS A LIE. IT'S IN THE IMPACT SITE.

Dang that's a lot of honeywisps. This little demo of all the creatures is interesting, since I think they were set in some of the demo environments. A lot of the areas they show up in don't match up to the final versions.

GIVE ME THOSE PELLETS

GIVE THEM TO ME

mamuta love flowers :B

screw you pearly clamclamp >(

NO PLEASE I HAVE A WIFE AND FAMILY

You're a wuss, puffstool.

I HATE SO MUCH OF WHAT YOU CHOOSE TO BE

And they will squeeze your pikmin to death.

IF YOU WERE EVER CURIOUS

i love how olimar categorizes and names everything in the game and takes notes on them. It just seems like such a natural thing to do when you land on an alien planet. Hee.

You can imagine my D: WHAT IS THAT when i beat the game the first time, since I didn't run into it. I eventually did though, which didn't reduce my D: at all really.

yeah you could put it like that

HI :D

woah huge eyes

YOU DON'T SAY

explains their neverending HUNGER FOR THE FLESH

If you ever want to waste time, just chase one of these around!

Screw you wollywogs

AND YOU

SCREW YOU BOTH

:D :D

I've already recorded the Bad Ending for you, if you ever curious.

And there you have it! I dunno how many of you guys have been following along with this all the way through (I know watching youtube vids can take more time than say, clicking a link and looking at a bunch of pictures), but for anyone who has been following along the whole way, I hope you enjoyed it and will maybe play Pikmin yourselves someday. :D I really, really love this game to ittybitty pieces. It can calm me down no matter how bad a mood I'm in, and it's just so gorgeous. My videos and such are all blurry due to compression and such, but you really can't appreciate how pretty this game is until you play it yourself. WHICH I HOPE YOU WILL :D

I do hope you enjoyed reading though! This was definitely an interesting experiment in screencap adventures, so you know.

And our videos for today!

THE FINAL DAY

And All Records of a Living Thing!

Thanks again for following along, if you have. :B I do really love this game to pieces, so it was fun to share it with others.
