Gaming woes

I dunno if I told you this or not, but I have Sonic The Hedgehog 3, Sonic And Knuckles, and Sonic 3 And Knuckles on my PC.

Last night, I only meant to play for two hours, from midnight to 2. Playing Sonic 3 And Knuckles as Tails. Managed to get all the way to the Death Egg zone. Fought what I was seriously hoping was the final boss, because the bastard was so hard to destroy. I went through 25 lives and about a dozen continues before I beat the fucker. When I saw that little sign floating down, I almost cried. "TAILS GOT PAST ACT 1"!!! *headdesk*

This is all my fault. People like me complain if games are too easy >_>


For a more relaxing and less evil game, try Knytt :)

The line of that comment isn't meant seriously. I like easy games and video game developers should stop putting four bosses in a row without any save points.

I thought that might be it. I mean, Sonic 2 was fairly hard, and the first time around, Sonic 3 was hard, too. But once I figured out the final boss on Sonic 3, it was easy. In fact, I can now get through the whole game in, like, 3 hours.


You ever played it?

Anyway, yeah. I tried again last night (thank GODDESS for game save!) and got up to the part where that thingy is dropping wheeled spikey thingies and you have to make them hit it - they are the only thing that hurts it.

Whenever I click that link, it tells me this: "Illegal menu item. Are you attempting to hack the website?"

Um... no. *Looks around in confusion*

Sonic! I remember those games! Hee! They were faves of mine. Not that I didn't suck at them.

I got past Sonic 2 (that was actually the first Sonic game I had) and then bought Sonic 1. Had gotten so used to the spin dash ability that I was annoyed the first one didn't have it. Never did manage to beat the last boss in that game.

Then I got Sonic 3 and that was awesome. The last boss was a BITCH to get past. Spikes on the top, and if you didn't hit it just right, it would grab Sonic and slam him down like a pro wrestler to the ground. If you didn't have any rings when it did that, your hedgehog died. Don't reckon I could've done it without that double-jump's "temporary shield" power he had in that one.
I remember being disappointed that there was no Death Egg zone. I regret that disappointment now, on Sonic And Knuckles.

My first experience of Sonic and Knuckles was a rented game. I tried playing the regular game. Got all the way past the first boss on the second round, not much farther than that. Eventually gave up and tried putting other cartridges in the slot on the top. My favorite to do this to was Sonic 2. Heh heh. I don't reckon Sonic 2 was ever intended to go in there, but I did it anyway. Had a lot of fun playing as Knuckles and just climbing walls to see how high they went.

But man... woah. Sonic 3 And Knuckles as Knuckles is an entirely different game. Sometimes its easier, but mostly it's harder. There are places in it you have to use Knuckles's climbing or flying to get past at all, and some of the bosses are completely different. There's two bosses at once on the first half of what is the last zone on Sonic 3.
