Ohayo Degozaru! Back again with another shot!



This week we're having a look at:

Dr. Higgenbotham's Notework - sunsun24
50's Industrial Dystopia - jph2016
City of Metronome - the-dog-of-fire
Crafty Challenge - ItsWashington17
Happy Mountains - emteemte

Quite the set this go about, a little bit of the whole lot. There should be something in there that catches your fancy and can be a good time for you. Thanks as always for all the support and feedback, and have a great day!

Episode 051, folks, we're just about there. Like we said the other week, any questions or comments you want addressed in the post-mortem bonus episode, get 'em to me relatively quick. i'm thinking we're going to do bonus stream the Friday episode 052 goes up, and an actual separate episode-episode maybe a week after (i don't recall how we handled it exactly, last year, timing-wise).

Speaking of streams, i'm not sure if there'll be one tonight, but we will be having a special-ish LBP3 Stream Sunday night 7.30p; going to be helping out EnochRoot from over on DreamsVerse pick a winner for the HalloweenDreams thing they had going on. Guess he's going to kit together a level for us to do that with, like he did for the Move Controller giveaway they did with LSRS. So, that's a bit of a neat thing.

i had a run of about a month or so where i was waking up at around 6 or 6.30a, and it was...ok. It meant some lost production time (though only half as much as you'd think from the clock, since muzzy-headed waffleking is inefficient waffleking), but paid for it with not feeling all janky in the morning. The last two days i've been up at 3.30a again. No reason that i can tell, just my body telling my brainmeats to get up, i guess. Going to see if i can't crash out for a few more hours once i get this all written up.

Ossu! Tuesday Takeaway Time!

Dr. Higginbotham's Notebook - sunsun24
i really enjoyed the look of this one, just random enough to be interesting, but still having a style tying it together. Also, lots of movement in there. The early on gameplay can be a bit oddly timed, but it's certainly doable. The SackBot creatinator was an interesting twist on things, and made for a fun boss battle (what a rarity!). All in all right up my alley, this one.

50's Industrial Dystopia - jph2016
i actually got past the spawnloack in that early section of the race, but then got tripped up in that spot where the flaming enemy was. See, you've got to Blink Ball over a wall, but the electro-SackBots will cluster around the exit point as soon as they notice you, so it's just a spawnlock with an extra step. i think one way jph2016 could have avoided this could have been by having the 'Bots get bored and wander off when SackThing dies or gets out of effective range. Otherwise, if you don't nail things just right the first time, you may as well bounce out of the level and try it again. Or not. i imagine a lot of players are going to fall into the "or not" camp.

City of Metronome - the-dog-of-fire
i...i have no idea what i was supposed to be doing here. i couldn't even find the recorded lullaby this go about, even though i did go to the banana room (i'd deleted my save data for the level, so it wasn't in my sackpocket any more). Still, the environment does look really nice, and that's worth the price of admission and a couple minutes of wandering around confused.

Crafty Challenge - ItsWashington17
i really enjoy levels like this. It's got a solid presentation with coherent material and decoration choices. There's some cool gameplay with solid use of layers throughout. i think the break in the level got repaired, or else something loaded in that hadn't when i played the first two times. There's a race mode available that adds a bit of tension, though it makes the sometimes poor checkpoint placement a lot more clear. There's one bit in particular that will cost you a lot of time and progress if you die, and that's not an unlikely outcome there. There's a little 3d movement in the level that i could have done without, but otherwise this is a real solid one.

Happy Mountains - emteemte
Fun and cheery and relatively stress-free as far as gameplay goes. Doesn't do anything particularly novel, but it does make pretty good use of the hook-hat, or at least consistent use thereof. Including a Oddsock-style run into the back bit was a little awkward, especially considering it's not marked in anyway. Otherwise, this makes for a fairly decent cool-down level (particularly nice if you're playing it after Crafty Challenge).

So that's the that. Hopefully something in there you found fun. Thanks as always for all the support and feedback and have a great day!

Once again lots to say and no time to say it in, sorry!
