    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    I remember how overjoyed I was as a kid when I got on the S.S. Aqua, heh. I got an imported US version of Silver. It was brilliant to have it a month or two before everybody else at school.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary



    Well, it's about time the internet on my end got fixed. It's not nice being able to only use World of Tanks reliably or to wait about 10 minutes to load a single page on this forum.

    But hey, I'm back. It took a month but now I can access all sorts of stuff I could before. Backwards progress!

    Sabaton: Screaming Eagles is what I'm listening to.

    So, what've I been doing whilst "offline"?

    Breaking Metroid: Zero Mission and Metroid: Fusion as much as I can. Wall jumps, shinesparks, anything I can do I tried to pull off.

    Now whilst Fusion really tightens down on sequence breaking (You can't really do it) Zero Mission is much more fun. Get the Varia suit early? Check. Get Super Missiles early? Check. Skip an entire boss or two? Sure, I'll do that.

    See, Zero Mission is a game that has two players. Those that play the game how it seems to want to be played, and those that decide to try new things in it. Nothing shows this more than the good old Varia suit or Screw Attack sequence break.

    Those that play the game how the game wants it to be played will follow the directions shown by the Chozo statues and get the Varia suit after they get the Hi-jump. Those that are playing the game their way will get it straight after the Ice Beam. All they need is patience and a good amount of bomb jumping.

    Getting the Varia suit early opens up other areas early mainly due to the whole "Space suit not made for extreme temperatures" problem.

    Likewise, the Screw Attack can be gotten early (Straight after the Varia suit, if memory serves) or you can get it when you're meant to which is after a boss. Getting the Screw Attack so early means you need to worry less about jumping problems.

    Super Missiles can also be received early. Unfortunately I haven't found a way to get power bombs early. I think the developers took extra care in preventing the player from getting those (Since it would allow someone to completely skip most of the game).

    I've also been practicing my non-existent Mario kart skills. I can now accelerate in a straight line and turn. This'll be interesting...

    As aforementioned, I've also been on World of Tanks. It's fun, but boring after a while. Anyone in Europe play it? Be nice to have a "team" rather than a group of 15 players who have next to no communication what-so-ever.

    Anything else that's been done? Oh yes, Pokemon Crystal was completed the day after the internet went strange, so expect that thread to be closed soon when I finally process the video.

    Also, expect regular updates though they may not be the length of what the old "regular" posts were.

    It's good to be back.


    EDIT:

    Forgot to mention that I watched some parts of Medabots during my downtime as well as an anime that escapes my mind right now. Unfortunately all I saw of the Medabots episodes was things such as the first few episodes and one involving Rokusho (sadly all I recall from that episode is Rokusho wearing his tattered cloth cape thing and possibly unleashing some sort of ability).

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    Well, I love my PSP right about now.

    Currently, at this moment in time I'm getting a SNES and GBA emulator to run off of it (I've got some form of DOSBox running for some games). Why these two specific emulator types?

    Metroid. That's why.

    As mentioned in my previous update I've been playing a lot of Zero Mission and Fusion. Recently my GBA died on me completely (might have something to do with me being knocked thus dropping it down a flight of stairs) and using VisualBoyAdvance can be fun but also annoying due to the controls.

    I mean come on, you try and play Megaman Zero and attempt to get an A rank or S rank on the intro stage when you only use a keyboard. It's a pain and far too challenging.

    With the GBA emulator I can have barrels o' fun since I can sequence break Metroid outside the house. And finish some games I can't be bothered to really do now that the GBA's dead.

    The SNES emulator follows a similar thing. I haven't had an SNES for about 4 years now and I never got around to play Super Metroid. Using an emulator on the PC for it is even more backwards than a GBA one (Mainly because there's a whole 2 extra buttons). But getting the SNES to work off the PSP means it's the perfect platform to play it off of.

    Both the PSP and SNES have 4 buttons, 2 shoulder buttons and the obligitory Start and Select buttons. This means it can be easier to pull off some rather fun stuff on the psp (given my main issue is I can't sequence break in S.Metroid because of the 4 button combo I have to hold down to reach a certain item) and will be rather entertaining.

    With the two emulators working, I can hopefully crack on to games I didn't even attempt properly (such as the already mentioned Megaman Zero game(s)).

    Tl;Dr:

    My PSP is more than a PSP.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    What about Super Metroid? I do remember having a flashed PSP. Fun times. If you're running a GBA emulator I highly recommend Golden Sun. Even if you're not a big fan of RPGs, you should give it a try. It looks stunning for a GBA title, has awesome music and most importantly, great gameplay.

    Played Golden Sun (And it's sequel) and I don't like them that much. Though it was a great game for the GBA given what it tried to do.
