Pikmin

Made by Nintendo, released in 2001

Day 8 - The Forest Navel



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




Very much considering Quest for Glory after this, hmm. I'm still torn between thief and warrior. Warrior is traditional for me, but Thieves are actually more interesting since you can rob people. THIS IS HARD. D: But I'll make a decision sometime. (and technically if I DO give my fighter lockpicking I could have him steal stuff, I just won't have anywhere to sell it since he wouldn't be able to get into the thieves guild. I think.)

BUT APART FROM THAT

Down we goooo~

Curse you Forest Navel, devouring so many of my Pikmin in your star-studded nightclaws. SO MANY LIVES LOST.

Darn it, that's like right where I dropped the last one. CURSES.

so close

Honeywisp~

Get goin Pikmin! Hyeah!

Meanwhile, I think there are some Blues around here where I found the Onion originally... for some reason.

Come to me Pikmin~

WOOOO

SPARKLES FOR EVERYONE as Olimar's secret stash of fireworks is set off by the reconstruction

THAT'S SOME GOOD LAWS THERE, DEEP SPACE.

One more, eh?

You guys just wait there, I'll be back. I swear.

Eight blues left? Jeez, this is going to make the next area difficult.

YOU'LL DROWN, DON'T STARE AT ME LIKE THAT

Reds ASSSEEEEMMBLE

Stupid walls. I need to do something about these.

A LONG TREK, BUT WITH A WORTHY REWARD THAT I REALLY SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN YESTERDAY BUT SHUT UP

Curse you wollywogs. I think they're a bit trickier in the first game than the second. :O

You can see them carrying the piece away over there

Hey, I can see a lone Pikmin on my radar! I won't leave you behind this time!

And the lost red comes home~

Anyway, I decided to take the rest of the day a bit slowly and get rid of some of these walls that were bugging me.

THE FIN IS BACK THE FIN IS BACK

You CAN actually get off the planet I think without all the pieces, but it's not the best ending. Then again, if you get like, NO pieces, you end up with this ending. :O

YES NEW AREA WOOOOO

IT'S BEAUTIFUL

I really need some more Blues. Like... bad. LET'S GET TO WORK ON THIS.

I'll only get one from the red and yellow pellets, but one is better than nothing. :O

AND WE'RE OFF

A tin can? that means BOMBROCKS

Watching this part, I honestly have no idea what I was doing. What I SHOULD have done is take the yellows, take all the bombrocks, throw them up there, then loop around and touch them, then go deal with the doors. Instead, I ended up screwing around here for like half the day waiting for these yellows to finish this bridge. wtf. WHY DO I DO STUFF LIKE THIS? BARGH.

Okay you yellows there, I'm going to walk over there reeeeal sloooow and i'm going to touch you, and you're not going to fall off the edge, okay

just stay there...

#$^#IT

Again, what I SHOULD have done is dismiss the yellows, go down, touch the two that fell over, throw them back up, loop around again. BUT INSTEAD EVERYONE GOES DOWN WITH ME, DURHURRHURR

YES REPEAT THE SAME ACTIONS OVER AND OVER GO ME

okay THIS TIME I'VE GOT IT

FINALLY

Get that out of the way, anyway.

Only two bombs left, darn it. This'll be a longer job.

YES TWO WALLS KNOCKED DOWN I'M SO PRODUCTIVE if i hadn't been an idiot near that bridge for like ten minutes

AAAAAAAAAGH

although the important thing is that my pikmin did not catch on fire as well |<

today i will not let pikmin fall through my fingers NO MORE LIVES WILL BE NEEDLESSLY LOST

Only seven left...

I SEE YOU, INCREDIBLY SMALL DOT, I'M COMING

After dropping off those other blues, there's only one left. ONLY ONE, AND I WON'T LEAVE YOU BEHIND

Blue: <3 <3 <3

Olimar: |<

Too many of your Pikmin brethren lost needlessly. BUT NOT TODAY.

Olimar: peepeeeep

Blue: <3

Wollywog: ACCURSED MOUNTEBANK

The distant spring you say? THAT SOUNDS INTRIGUING. and wet.

Only added eleven Pikmin to my roster. BUT I DIDN'T LOSE ANY, SO TAKE THAT.

OUR NEXT STOP, SPRINGING DISTANTLY

And today's video!
