Perfect Game Part 5.1

#1ShinGoukenPosted 3/24/2012 3:05:00 AM(edited)
Now, some people might think the decision to make a new topic is a bit harsh for the reason i'm about to give, but i wouldn't be doing it if it was just me who was unhappy with the last topic. This topic is about perfect games so if you want challenge ideas or have anything not related to a perfect game that you want to talk about, make a new topic please.

I also feel harsh picking on Player2 who is actually playing a perfect game with us, but nobody knows what you're doing, how many hours you've clocked or what your golas are, so please, if you're going to post, give us some information on what you're actually doing. Nobody knows what "doing names means" and we don't need you to post the same thing everyday that doesn't actually contribute anything.

Also, (and this is a minor point...) but this is my topic b**** ;-)

As for my progress... i havn't started yet today, but i'm hoping to get in 7-8 hours so i'll post an update later tonight

I'm sure Flak is still about, but where are the other perfect gamers? Gothic_Sara, if you're about, pop in and say hello, we miss you =) and girlsrgamers2 are you almost ready to start up your own perfect game? Also, where's Lumpy, Frozen Josh and the other part timers? Even if you've quit your perfect games, you're still one of the few people who attempted the impossible! Come and say hello =)

asking a question or two and taking up a few posts does not deter from the point of the topic. pretty sure you created this new one just so you can have another 500 post or something, there really was no point in creating this topic.

I am on #20. I explained what do names mean in Perfect game part 4. I write names that are weird or not common and also if its Senior, Junior the III, II, or the IV. I am on North Texas. Only the football teams. It is for NCAA 2012 for the rosters. Can't play due to bowling this morning, but tomorrow will play after I read the newspaper and church. I have 42 game saves. On #20 I am in Tchita Uplands about to get the rare game Kris and Grimalkin!

been getting some quality play-time in these last couple days. i may see my mandragora chain reach 999 this turn (last round, i was short by about 60, since i'm just killing them til i've used up the exp needed to get to the next level for each of my characers, before running off to RNG up some perfect levelling!)

leaving Juggernaut alone (i call him Juggs now, when i run through that zone. "oh, hey there, Juggs! i guess it's been another hour, eh?" i say as i run past!) has definitely been a nice addition of distractions. keeping count, i'm up to my 14th Juggs encounter, and Fran has about 70K xp to go before i run like mad to a save point.

i've been purposely NOT looking at my inventory so i'll be pleasantly surprised when i finally DO save (and won't be crushed if a lightning bolt blinks the power...again!) but i should finally have some decent progress to report here in a day or two.

also...i'll back you up on this, Shin, this is YOUR perfect game topic, and should at least be about a perfect game. and i'll also echo the call for our missing compatriots! it's nice to see a couple new faces here and there, but we miss the old company, especially in our current misery--the absolute two worst farming sets!

long awaited...!!! STATUS !!! UPDATE !!!

ahhhh...finally got this week saved away safely on a memory card!

the good news? no more killing topstalk! i've got 99 tomato stalks, even after chewing all that i needed to get me drowsy!

the stuff that matters, though:

35 four-leaf-clovers
and
25 jack-o-lantern

(still ten behind. at least it started being consistent this round, or pumpkins'd be more behind!)

84 onions, so those'll finish off next round.
61 gimble stalks.

73 Traitor's bows on top of it all.

(and a small but growing collection of serpent eyes, sickle blades, prime tanned hides, cancer gems, behemoth steaks, and broken greataxes as well)

after i max the gimble stalks (and traitors bow--meaning chain does not help me for ANYthing except counting!) i will probably swap over to a poach-only strategy. then i'll save more frequently, and use the xp from clearing out the runway to level up the characters. in hindsight, i might've better gotten all my levels before this...but they do make nice breakpoints, too, as long as i don't forget about them and accidentally level up imperfectly!

also, i believe this was my very first EVER maxed-out 999 chain. and i did it on the mandys.

(probably gonna take a few days/a week off now, give my poor ps2 a rest from being running nonstop all week!)

I've racked up 1700 hours in the last 18 months. This isn't a little hobbie to fill my spare time, it's a major project which has taken most of my free time over the last year and a half. So forgive me if it seems like i take this topic too seriously.

People use the old topics to read about our challenges and to perhaps seek some helpful tips. I even go back to them myself to refresh my memory on old routes and farming spots... so it therefore makes a lot of sense to keep them on topic, more so than most topics which will never be read once they die.

@VLB
Good work mate, you're a quarter of the way done!

^wow, that's a rough bout! six hours and only one drop...somehow, though, that previous good patch still put you back above the 5% drop rate--even excluding doubles!

and yeah, despite wanting to give my ps2 a break...heck...it's been off for a couple hours now! i think i might just go clear out the old ice field of clearsight and white magick's embrace before crashing tonight!

not being funny, but why did you create the other topic?

shin has started the last 4 topics to document his perfect game....was a bit weird of you to jump in and start a part 5 that wasn't YOUR part 5 really...

of course, i don't give a damn - i think perfect gaming is just freaky personally so meh...

I started the other one BC I noticed part 4 reached max posts. I didnt know shin was the only one who could create or post in them. Especially since vlb was posting in there as well as others. Might have posted a few things in there that were a little off topic but all the other ones have some posts like that too. At least my posts where about the game, unlike player who says about doing names, I didnt see shin starting new topics then. Furthermore I started my own version of perfect game, having 6 of all items instead of 99, around August of last 2010 when almasno1fan started a perfect.game topic. In case your interested that file only needs about 60 more hours to be finished. I didnt just create that topic to take anything away from shin or anyone esle currently doing what tbey define as a perfect game, but to show both the amount of support and respect I have for them. thats the only reason I did so and with that I say good bye and good luck to all perfect game players.
