Getting to the end of Egg Corridor? at 10/11 years old, leaving with Kazuma, and then thinking that Cave Story just had a really sad ending for like two years.
Yeah, I tend to read about games I probably never will own too........I actually can't remember doing anything terribly silly in my first playthrough. Besides the obvious fact that I played it in like 2011 (), I knew about the game's best ending and major secrets prior to playing it due to my love of reading and tendency to assume that I'll never get to play games from consoles I don't own.
I do remember spending the majority of a day working on beating the final areas without food, getting up, or doing anything else, though, which was a totally great idea that didn't adversely affect me at all. D:
IMO the machine gun is definitely a better trade than the Spur. You get infinite flight early on with the MG (as long as you keep it at level 3), and the spur's damage is rather unimpressive compared to both the blade and the Nemesis. But that infinite flight is incredibly useful.I traded the Polar Star for the Machine gun, my original instinct was, cool, a new gun, then I realized it took away my Polar Star. I thought it was a better trade, then I heard about the Spur......
Although I do agree that the machine gun is a better trade, I'm going try to defend the SpurIMO the machine gun is definitely a better trade than the Spur. You get infinite flight early on with the MG (as long as you keep it at level 3), and the spur's damage is rather unimpressive compared to both the blade and the Nemesis. But that infinite flight is incredibly useful.
Oh yeah, another good thing about it is that it allows you to move/dodge while it charges.The Spur lazor can pierce enemies, which means that total damage per shot is defined by the number of enemies you can take on at once. There may be a charging time, but that allows you to prepare for the next attack. The Blade however requires more complex xp management and requires you to move close to your enemy to be effective. It also requires that the end user be an effective button masher. Damage per second isn't everything.
