|Finally beat that Secret Path level, with a gold score... It took me a few tries before I remembered that you can actually shoot giant Dedede any time, not just when he's sucking you in... hmm, maybe with that knowledge and how good I am at this level now, I can get a platinum?|
Now I'm going back through the older levels and trying to get platinum again.
uh... wtf is up with 1-1 EX? This level seems literally impossible to get the platinum on. I did everything perfectly, and got a new gold record at 51995. I'm like okay, maybe just do that same thing but a bit faster... and I did it again 3 seconds faster than last time, using every risky quick maneuver I can think of, and got 52010 and that STILL isn't enough for a platinum.
Then I checked a youtube video and figured out there's actually a way to get a slightly bigger combo at the beginning... okay sure. I guess in some cases I'll just need to look up a platinum playthrough guide to figure out the exact strategy for some of these levels cuz otherwise it's just gonna seem impossible.
