Look at Me, I'm Playing Video Games


#42

Now that I’m home from Saturday gaming, and up too late…

Time to watch you finish this game, because I’m all about the climax of this game.


#43

Beat The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past again. It’s been twenty years, but I pretty much remembered where all the heart pieces were. The dungeons were half memories, and replaying them was a fascinating experience.

I might toy around with some randomizer seeds but not with speedrunning in mind.


#44

These randomizer seeds are not the usual ones I’ve seen speedruns of! Locations are randomized as well, and it’s a very odd experience.

One hour in, I finally found a sword.


#45

You are playing open mode where you do not start with sword, also the options and changes what gets randomized for your taste.


#46

The question is whether I keep going or find (create?) some seeds more like the randomizer speedruns I watched for the last month. I feel more prepared for the latter.


#47

I beat ER Open Ganon Simple Normal Restrictive 221166048 but not in anything close to record time! The “open” style with randomized locations takes a lot of getting used to. I recommend you take notes, because I didn’t and there was a lot of backtracking.

Next I’m playing a more-like-the-speedruns-I’ve-seen ALttP randomizer with just the items scrambled, and it’s absolutely fantastic!


#48

Tonight I’m going to stream a whole bunch of games for many hours. Probably starting around 4PM Eastern-ish.

Picross time

Opus Magnum by Zachtronics


#52

Here are some of my Opus Magnum Solutions: that you could have seen me build if you watched my stream.


#53

Gonna stream some Mario Odyssey. It comes out at midnight eastern. Then I have to download it. Might stay up late and stream a little bit, but probably mostly after work tomorrow. Probably more Opus Magnum after work today.


#54

I’ll wait until the weekend to play. Let it download while I sleep.


#55

I played some more Opus Magnum, but didn’t stream. I’m not winning any efficiency awards with this one, but I’m still pretty proud of it. It’s also really satisfying to watch. I just went all out and used a zillion arms. According to the plot, this machine is making swords!


#56

Once again I prioritized beauty and symmetry over cost or efficiency.


#57

This machine is large and expensive, but it turns lead into gold very quickly, so you get your money’s worth.


#58

This is the kind of game I better not play or it would consume my life.


#59

There are only so many levels, then it’s over. Like portal. I’m close to done.


#60

Fuck every other video game, Mario Odyssey is SO GOOD.


#61

This weekend I’m diving in deep.

There’s no way it’s better than BotW. :wink: But then again, comparing them is like comparing a fine wine to a fine cheese. They can both be the top of their class.
