Are you epileptic? Serious question. Then again flashes also induce migraines in some people and I dunno if that's related. I frequently get migraines if I go to loud action movies at the theater, unfortunately. To the point where I usually pop some Excedrin as a preventative measure. Also why would your Pokemon performing "a deceptive or pretended blow, thrust, or other movement" help anything?
We also have frequent thunderstorms every summer. It wasn't especially noteworthy, just...felt like posting something I guess...that's why it was a status and not a post like this. Everyone's a critic.
Though it is not an uncommon thing for me to do with Kirby games. I can only say that Triple Deluxe, for whatever reason, did not necessarily inspire as much enthusiasm for continuing to play. Then again I still intend to go back to it. I also did everything I could in both Return to Dream Land and Mass Attack, which are both also games I'd say are among the best Kirby games ever made. Robobot certainly joins that list. Triple Deluxe was good, and there are aspects that I might call slightly better than Robobot, but I suppose there is something to be said for its blandness of theme and pointlessness of story. Not that story in a Kirby game is a big deal, but it seemed especially perfunctory in that one. Robobot goes new places. The mechanization/industrial theme is cool. Deserts are not just deserts, but have blenders and pipes extracting oil. Ice? No, ice cream making factory. Water level? Now with shipping containers and mechanical sharks. Every level is something new an interesting. And all the extra content is likewise excellent, as it so often is with these games.
I liked The Silence of the Lambs. I'm just not sure I liked it as much as Manhunter. They're close...but the question does not enter my head "did I like Silence of the Lambs more than Manhunter?" it's more do I like them the same amount or Silence less so? So I guess maybe that says I liked Manhunter more. But that's not to say it's not great. The ending is a bit flat, though. It starts off really good. The initial confrontation with Buffalo Bill is tense, but I dunno. Something just falls apart compared to the awesome (if over the top) ending Manhunter gets.
When I'm not busy with something else, I've been continuing to play Planet Robobot and Epic Yarn. Though Epic Yarn has no traditional Kirby difficulty, I actually find getting 100% in levels to be much more challenging than normal. Maybe even frustratingly so. I'll say it. Game's too hard. :P
