|A flying rat... it's the first enemy that does a combo attack on you... with this you should be able to figure out on your own that tapping A along to the beat gets you combo hits... and if you see the enemy do it to you, then you have a better idea of what the timing for the combo hits should be.|
lol I just noticed Thomas stayed behind at some point when Flint went into the burning forest.. how did I not notice the siren noise not being there anymore? I'm way too high.
Um... wtf am I supposed to do on the 2nd floor of this building where Fuel is stuck behind a fallen support beam?
Oh right, the dash ability... you can use that indoors too, and knock away the rubble that's blocking the way.
Abbey was attacked by some enemies... says she's never seen any creatures like this before, some weird hybrid combinations of flies, mouses, and other bugs...
Thomas is near the sanctuary... oh I see he took Lighter here to save him while Flint went to get Fuel.
- Tazmily Village/Sunshine Forest 2 -
It starts raining... back at Tazmily Village, Tessie heals Flint and Fuel at the inn, but Lighter is still in bad condition.
Flint... did you see anything else in the fire besides those weird bugs? Suspicious people with pig-like masks on.Lou says there's yet another guy named Isaac who went out to the woods to pick mushrooms, not sure if he's back yet...
Wow this Innkeeper guy looks perpetually depressed... I guess you've never seen him pre-pig crisis... his wife thinks he's a coward.
Isaac is outside the inn.. asks Flint if he's seen Hinawa and the kids.. He saw Hinawa by the mountain riverside when he was up there picking mushrooms... then he heard Drago screams and human screams off in the distance a bit later.
You still can't go in any other houses in town besides the inn, because it's late out... It seems like you have the choice to either sleep until morning or go looking for Hinawa at night... idk maybe not? Okay yeah, sleeping doesn't do anything but heal you, got it.
During the forest fire, the frog was like "you really should save", but now that it's raining and things are calm, it's like "wanna save? ribbit".. I like how the frogs can all have different dialog depending on the situation.
All of them end by saying
Give my regards to the next frog you meet.
Flint finds a carrier pidgeon with a letter from Hinawa...
Next time we visit, let's ask one of our neighbors to tend the sheep so we can come as a family...
Also you can explore the rest of town now, just can't go in any houses still... sherriff's office is to the west, the sign there says
Sheriff NOT wanted! After all, there's no crime!This map design feels quite a bit different from EarthBound's and Mother 1's giant areas with an angled point of view... This feels kinda more simple, but still has the Earthbound style linearity where the way forward is usually pretty obvious, but if you go exploring for optional goodies it's easy to get lost.
Everyone's searching the forest for Hinawa, Claus, and Lucas.. further up at the mountain...
- Mt. Oriander 2 -
Fuel, Lighter, and Isaac show up, and start trying to push through..
Now some people are gathered at the cliff where the dragons climbed up.. Boney notices something here.. and if you look up you see a red piece of cloth that Flint seems to recognize.
The old man says he can get his son to help Flint up the cliff, Duster... They send Boney to go get him... Duster has the ability to staple soft walls to create a path to climb up them...
Just realized, in EarthBound's Lost Underworld, the place where dragons lived, that's where Ness found his final memory and went to Magicant... and the peaceful (pre-pig crisis) place you start out in has dragons living there...
Up ahead there's this tough cyborg mountain goat thing that the pig enemies activated on us.
After defeating it and chasing the pigs away, my levels are now 12 / 9 / 11
If you try to go back down the mountain after it stops raining, some npc who is slowly trying to climb it blocks you off from returning
Some letter with a pig nose stamp on it:
All the creatures around here suck. We need to make 'em cooler. So the theme will be: Tougher! Rougher! Badder! We'll mix and match this and that to create whole new things no one's ever seen before! I dub it the Fascinating Chimera Project.yikes...
Saw a pig-nosed UFO fly away... can't go any farther due to part of the cliff being destroyed... back down the mountain... the npcs who were at the knocked down trees have finished. One guy finds you and says he found Lucas and Claus, washed up the river.
I wonder what they'll get to eat when their mom gets back.Bronson shows up looking really awkward... he says he found a drago fang... but...
Bronson tells Flint that he can come pick up that drago fang when he gets out of jail... Claus comes and breaks him out.. says Lucas is been at mom's grave crying...
It seems Claus was the first person at Hinawa's grave this morning. When I called out to him as he was leaving, he gave a tiny little smile... and then suddenly dashed off...
Some little girl named Alle says Clause went off somewhere and said "we won't see each other for a while", asks Flint if he knows where he went..
h-he didn't take dad's homemade knife and go to slay the dragoOkay, got the drago fang from Bonson, the only weapon that can hurt a drago... and got some new armor from Lighter... seems like a good place to stop.
