Pikmin

Made by Nintendo, released in 2001

Day 6 - The Impact Site



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




After all the Pikmin I've lost in various stupid ways throughout this whole thing (aduuuuurr), I thought I should spend some time rebuilding my Pikmin forces, and the Impact Site is a good place to do it since there are like... only three enemies there that can really hurt you, and normally I can deal with them without any trouble.

NORMALLY anyway. ARGH. I swear this makes me look so bad at this game arrgh. Also this day had a rather weird...glitch near the end? I'm not quite sure what happened. Weird stuff.

Previous Editions

Ah, the old Impact Site, with its cheery music. How tiny and reliable you are.

Actually if you come back here after the... eighth day, a special enemy shows up here. Then I think there's a different unique enemy on alternate days... the Mamuta and the Goolix. I'll see if I can fight them for you guys, but I can't spent too much time here or else I won't be able to show you the Smoky Progg. :O

Running low on blues, so lets get some scavenging parties out people

I DON'T HAVE TO GO AROUND IF I DON'T WANT TO

Haha victory

There we go, that's more like it. I'll need these to get the piece here.

I totally could have gotten these. I don't know why i just blanked on getting them.

FLINT BEETLE RARGH

I managed to not even peg it once. Darn it.

Anyway, let's take this wall down.

Note to self: lag between my recorder and the Cube makes it a bad idea to do splitsecond bomb throwing.

NEW TERRITORIES

Got some extra bombs, why not nail this. In retrospect, I should have bombed the clamclamp to the other side, got the pearl, while setting a group to work on this normally while doing other things, but eh. Hindsight.

Darn it, Pikmin have such problems with narrow walkways like this. One of the most welcome tweaks in Pikmin 2 in my opinion was making Pikmin stay close to you automatically on bridges. It also brings to mind them all clustering onto Olimar and hanging onto him all D: and him being like |< you pikmin and aww.

Anyway everyone back together

Aha, here's our target. A Pearly Clamclamp. These guys are normally pushovers as long as you have a good sense of timing.

You toss Pikmin onto the bed, and they whack the pearl (or piece in this case) and the back slowly pulls back. You got to make sure you pull your Pikmin back in time before

CHOMP

Now, a trick that you can use for things like this is that, if you use the c-stick to cluster your Pikmin close to you, you can throw Pikmin way faster than just pressing A. This can save you lots of time on enemies like this.

The thing i didn't realize at this point was that if you do use the c-stick and let go, rather than going behind you like the normally do, Pikmin stay where you left them. So my Pikmin just sat there and

NOOOOO

DARN IT this was supposed to be a day to build Pikmin not lose them in stupid ways argh

ARGH WHY DIDN'T I PICK UP ON THE C-STICK PROBLEM SOONER WHAT WAS WRONG WITH ME

Well at least i finally got the piece

Awww, Olimar eating instant noodles, awwww. His wife must not be happy about that. I PACKED YOU LUNCH. D:

Darn it 20 Pikmin I DON'T HAVE 20 PIKMIN ANYMORE frick i got to make some more blues or i'm not getting this pieces

THOSE BLUES WILL NOT HAVE DIED IN VAIN

Time to pick up all those pellets I left lying around. Good thing I didn't pick these up earlier. :O

DARN IT I wanted to drag down the twenty and give it to the blues but I don't have enough yellows to take it down. D: ARGH TIME RUNNING OUT

ADUUURRR THERE'S ONE RIGHT HERE DURR

After some maneuvering, the pellet goes where it's supposed to woooo

Time running short CMON GUYS

Don't really need these yellows, might as well put them away before I kill them in some stupid way again arrgh

I MIGHT HAVE TIME TO GET A PEARL COME ON LET'S GO

Normally, two bombrocks will kill these. I should have done it that way. Ah well.

MEANWHILE

"NOT THAT I'VE DONE THAT"

Well despite today's losses, in the end at least I got another piece.

DARN IT I CAN DO THIS CMON GUYS

stupid c-stick thing

YES HAHAHAHAHAHA YES

FRICK

I stayed close to them this time just in case...

And to save time (or something) I took all my reds out just as the pearl was getting sucked up...

And then the pearl got sucked up, and nothing happened. Where are my seeds? wtf? I SPENT ALL THAT TIME GETTING THAT PEARL AND WHERE ARE MY PIKMIN FOR IT?!

JMAUFHADGHA

NO YOU DON'T I GOT THAT PEARL IN THERE ON TIME WHERE ARE MY PIKMIN ARRRRRGH

Oh well.

I actually wasn't sure what Olimar would mention this time around, since I did nothing this day (but fail all over it apparently) but I forgot about that single yellow that got blown up. Poor thing. D:

arrrrgh. DARN IT WHAT ABOUT MY REDS

Ah whatever

Aaaand... not sure where to go next. :O I guess the Forest Navel. :O

Aaaand today's video!
