We don't always like being nonplussed

Mother (Earthbound 0) Flailthrough - Day 19 (In which our player fails, miserably.)

Alright, last week when we left off, I realized that I had no idea how to get back to the magic sky kingdom, and could possibly have screwed myself out of finishing the game... but, a thought finally struck me... and by that, I mean I had to Google it to see if there was a way back.

I need to go to the monkeys.

Romancing Saga 2 part 27: Run Away! Run Away! (Part I)

So here we are. I guess I'll fight that zombie-lookin' dude and see how much trouble I'm in.

Romancing Saga 2 day 26: This is why you don't go stealing boats.

Okay, it's a cave.

A cave full of slugs and crabs that look like an Octopus on the map.

A cave full of slugs and crabs that look like an Octopus on the map, and kill Walrus in two hits, and wipe out our party before we can kill even one of them, and there were like a dozen octopi on that map. Let's just reset and let Mr. Viking keep his boat for now, shall we?

Romancing Saga 2 part 25: Bad Diplomacy

Interesting building style here in Morbelm. Is that slate siding? Haven't seen that before. The equipment shop is run by a pair of bickering brothers, and they do have that fancy sword that Walrus got handed down from Great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-Grampa Bear. Also a real axe but Fritz's mace is equal to it in power- and as a hand-me-down from the great King Gerarl, I can't see just tossing it aside now.

Romancing Saga 2 part 24: Avalon 250 Years Later.

Town hasn't changed much either- the same unoccupied grave even sits open in the graveyard! Maybe nobody here actually dies and just changes color every so often.

It'd make more sense than the game of KyaaKyaa-WaiWai being the favorite sport of Avalonian children.

Romancing Saga 2 part 23: Getting the Band Back Together

The upper levels of the castle haven't changed. The treasurers inform me that Avalon's got over 2 million Crowns in the royal treasury- hopefully inflation hasn't been too bad over the last couple centuries and that's as good as it sounds!

Mother (Earthbound 0) Flailthrough - Day 18 delayed due to lack of coffee.)

Alright, we have a whole new town to explore, so I guess I'll start by talking to the local population and see if they give me anything... as one should always do. This is a vitally important function of the random NPC in a video game world, along with quest giving and letting strangers spend the night in their house. One should always remember proper video game manners, if they're going to live in a video game world. I'd recommend the Pokemon world though, since they at least don't break into your home and steal shit.
