The best part is that I was gonna do this five days ago.

Traditionally, only three guns have limited ammo: the Bubbline, the Machine Gun, and the Missile Launcher. No they all do, moving on.
I'm doing this purely vanilla, no mods whatsoever.

That includes translations. (Side note: why is the cursor green?)

Let's begin.

Screenshot_20200609-173135_Photos.jpg

This is how I had that save file set up. If I wanted to, I could snatch a second Polar Star without the handicap from that chest.

Pictured here is a robot being entirely too careful.

The heart container music glitched out here and I don't know why. You'll be able to listen to it when I'm done with the challenge and I turn it into a video.

Screenshot_20200609-174144_Photos.jpg

The monitor is the only way to refill ammo. Trust me, that's gonna be important soon.

Screenshot_20200609-174342_Photos.jpg

I take back what I said earlier. This is what I call being to careful.

Screenshot_20200609-174804_Photos.jpg

Okay, that's the end of the First Cave. Moving on.

Screenshot_20200609-175052_Photos.jpg

I was jumping to the beat of the music. Don't tell me you don't.

Screenshot_20200609-175234_Photos.jpg

Ah, the power of "fwendship".

Screenshot_20200609-175725_Photos.jpg

Bang.

Wait, no, she dies later.

Quote. Bro. It's a bubble. Pop it. Mission accomplished.

Screenshot_20200609-180801_Photos.jpg

I considered not doing it, but I had 99 bullets and my weapon was only at Lv2.

Screenshot_20200609-180958_Photos.jpg

Hindsight...

Screenshot_20200609-181159_Photos.jpg

But I still did it, so whatever.

Screenshot_20200609-181335_Photos.jpg

Yay, something useless!

Continued below again because attachments.

Don't shoot in rhythm. Don't shoot in rhythm.

Screenshot_20200609-181914_Photos.jpg

What do you mean the shots go over their heads?!

Screenshot_20200609-182029_Photos.jpg

This is the only enemy in the graveyard that drops anything when killed.

Screenshot_20200609-182258_Photos.jpg

Something about this seems illegal.

Screenshot_20200609-182431_Photos.jpg
Whoops, almost forgot to get the heart container from the YaMaSh*tA Farm!

Screenshot_20200609-182622_Photos.jpg

Yup, it's illegal.

Screenshot_20200609-182711_Photos.jpg

This is as far as I got today. I'll tackle the Egg Corridor tomorrow, which will inevitably become next week.

I forgot about Cubeupload.

DAY 2: EGG CORRIDOR AND GETTING THE FIREBALL

Look at that, I was only one day off!

Alright, I'm at Arthur's House with the Polar Star. It's at Level 1 and I have 9HP. I'm going in.

Screenshot_20200611-144243_Photos.jpg

The first thing to do is to get the Life Capsule.

Screenshot_20200611-144620_Photos.jpg

Pictured here is a robot being entirely too reckless.

Screenshot_20200611-144852_Photos.jpg

Go for it, Sue! You can do it!

Screenshot_20200611-145420_Photos.jpg

You suck!

Screenshot_20200611-145635_Photos.jpg

Did I just steal from Cthulhu?

Screenshot_20200611-145910_Photos.jpg
I managed to do that entire structure on the left without firing a single shot.

Screenshot_20200611-150414_Photos.jpg

The Missile Launcher will definitely come in handy.

Screenshot_20200611-150900_Photos.jpg

Somehow I forgot that I needed the key card.

Screenshot_20200611-151055_Photos.jpg

I ran out of ammo.

Screenshot_20200611-151246_Photos.jpg

●KEYCARD● GET!!

(The rest of the images will be done through Cubeupload rather than attachments.)



It's not often that I pull out the missiles outside of a boss...or in general.



I wonder what happens if you hit a Press or a Basil at over 127 HP. I need to try that.



I lost the keycard. Yes, this is the right way.



OH, WAIT.



If that wasn't a close call, I don't know what is.



I have the keycard again. Let's be smart this time.



That means a lot of grinding.

FIVE MINUTES LATER



I'm ready for this.



ALRIGHT BRING IT ON YOU BIG FAT DIRTBAG WHATCHA GONNA GO LET'S GO LET'S GO LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOO



uhh



Okay, I think the problem is the low ammo count for the Polar Star. I'm gonna have to backtrack all the way to Arthur's house.

TWO MINUTES LATER



Okay, just gotta heal up and then I'll get back.

THREE MINUTES LATER



I'm back with a full Polar Star, let's do this.



ALRIGHT ROUND 2 BABY COME ON YA BIG FAT APE LET'S DO THIS COME ON COME ON COME ON CAN'T TOUCH THIS GET READY HERE I COME WOOOOOOO!!



...really?



Okay, I'm gonna need to grind.

SIX MINUTES LATER



Blah blah big fat something something something ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.



Finally.



He's dead. 彼は死にました。



Nah, I didn't do jack squat for you. いや、私はあなたのためにジャックスクワットをしませんでした。



Not like you did anything, either. あなたも何もしていないようです。

(If the Japanese is off, it's because I used Google Translate.)



Finally, a refill station.

FIVE MINUTES LATER



Here we are at the Bushlands.



I was gonna say "that's illegal" again, but this is a delivery service sooooooooo...



Oh God, oh God, here comes the arm.



Here's your stupid key, now give me your gun.


And now I have the fireball. That's the end for today, and I'll do part 3 whenever I get around to editing my save file again.

DAY 3: THE BUSHLANDS

I finally got around to editing my save file.

Screenshot_20200617-200009_Photos.jpg

It works.

Screenshot_20200617-200123_Photos.jpg

Aaaaaaaaaand I'm being too reckless.

Screenshot_20200617-200149_Photos.jpg

That could have been close.

Screenshot_20200617-200235_Photos.jpg

YA GOT SOME JAM?!

Screenshot_20200617-200327_Photos.jpg

I must be missing something. Better go kill myself.

Screenshot_20200617-200351_Photos.jpg



Screenshot_20200617-200931_Photos.jpg

For got this life capsule. Better try to get it.

~SEVERAL TRIES LATER~

Screenshot_20200617-201021_Photos.jpg

Wait a minute.

Screenshot_20200617-201029_Photos.jpg

................................................

Screenshot_20200617-201133_Photos.jpg

That was more trouble than it was worth.




...okay, in my defense, the last time I played Cave Story in any capacity outside of this challenge, it was from Sand Zone onwards.



There you are. I'm gonna fuel up first.



Alright, let's do this.



Now I have your guts.



Turn around, you're headed the wrong way!




Yes, I got the Bubbline.
This is one of the three weapons that have an ammo limit right off the bat, and unlike the missiles, these reload automatically.
While this technically fits into the rules, it can be debated on whether it should be used.

So I'm gonna use only it for the rest of the Bushlands.

MINI CHALLENGE GO!!



We start by getting more grape jelly.



Santa's state-of-the-art ●charcoal● works great for any grill or explosive!



Let's get some more jelly.



Shouldn't this fireplace be connected to a chimney?



And now back to Quote's criminal life.



Oh no.



You mean the one who actually gives a crap about the island wasn't the one who went on record saying she hates everything on it? What a revelation! 実際に島についてがらくたを与えたのは、彼女が島のすべてを憎んでいると記録に残った人ではなかったのですか?なんという啓示でしょう!

~ONE EASY BOSS BATTLE LATER~



Me? I'm an experiment that got out of control. 私?私は手に負えなくなった実験です。



Ooh, more missiles!



YEET!!



Rip and tear, until it is done.



ANOTHER key?!



Another heart container. Nice.




Another missile pack. Nice.




Gum. Nice.



Exploding frogs. Nice.



Bombs. Now we're talkin'.



BOOM!



This was the last we ever heard of Kazuma and Booster.



Here are their remains.

MINI CHALLENGE COMPLETE!



Oh wait, they survived?

Okay, that's enough for today.

I could barely tell where one post ended and another began while scrolling so I've gone though and stuck all the images in spoilers, and I'm going to request you continue doing that also from now on. Looks to be going fine otherwise though :toroko2:
