TS Mario Race Challenge

Let’s talk about a game. TS Mario. A name not many will know, and even I did not know of the game. It is a Mario fan game that is in line with super Mario bros 3. the game has a mode called TS Mario, and the only reason I’m playing this fan game is MastaKirby made a deal with me. and Hypersonic7701, and Zomb1esmasher15.

Game mode: TS Mario.

This mode starts with a tutorial to get the player used to the game controls and how everything works much later on. This level is a clone of stage 1-1 when things go off the rails.

And given this is a fan game, the dev added new features and enemies. From what I can tell, it is super Mario bros. 3, but each level is unique as each stage has a different layout, mechanics to learn or avoid, new enemies, hidden blocks, fake level ends for levels, and traps. And you can play Mario, Luigi, Princess Daisy, and Toad.

It is kaizo Mario, but kaizo Mario without all the speedrunner tricks. Granted, I have only beaten four levels, and no telling how much harder this game will become. But I think it helped a little bit that I was used to playing something beforehand like cat Mario, unfair sonic, and Wings of VI.

Playing these games before did not help me other than get me prepared for something ahead. And I was already waiting for the next trap, but even then, I was still caught off guard that it was a trial and error. I grew to like this. Maybe by the end, I will end up loving this fan game.

Maybe I will end up not being a fan of it. But however it goes, I can value the hard work that went into this fan game, and back when Nintendo was strict about no rom hacks instead of fan games like they are today.

I mentioned that MastaKirby offered me a deal to stream this game to get a live reaction from me, and the only thing is I had to beat the game without using warp pipes and kill all the bosses. I agree because I assumed this was a rom hack or a fan game.

I was wrong, lmao. The offer thrown to my friends, Zomb1esmasher15 and HyperSonic7701, Tigre5012 invited himself to suffer. Even Drax is playing this game, but what was a challenge now became a race as there were three prizes. 1st place would get a copy of Freedom planet 2 for steam (This applies to me only), 100 bucks in gift card form, and watch MastaKirby play sonic the hedgehog spinball fast.

Final Fantasy 14 online log 2

I have returned with a new ff14 log, and I got things to say. I’m enjoying the game more. And it is a much bigger log, and I want to share.

The Navel

The lord of crags at first seemed difficult, but it was fun. Granted, I was overgeared by this point from farming I did in MSQ and with dungeons. I had an edge on the fight.

One thing I was not a fan of was phase 2. In phase 2, the boss’s heart or core exposed, and you are to attack the heart. For some reason, I could not attack the heart, but I had the boss aggro of the titan.

But even after that, the boss was fun, and I still enjoyed the fight, although phase 2 was weird.

POTD or Palace of the dead

Something I never did and confused POTD for haukke manor when my friends asked if I did POTD. But Palace of the dead was something far different. Each run, you climb nine floors and fight a boss on the tenth floor. And it is fun.

The only danger is the enemies leading up to the boss and the traps. The dungeon traps that can disable attacks to turn you into a frog, to be a land mine that I swear does 80% of your max hp.

You can find items that boost the spawn rate, shows you traps, and boosts defense.

I, Aluria, and Dae climbed the ranks. We cleared 1 – 10 | 11 – 20 | 21 – 30| 31 – 40|.

Final Fantasy 14 online log

It is time for a new gaming log for a game I fell in love with in 2021. And it is a game that everyone is playing, and I mean most people enjoy this game, and it is Final Fantasy 14 online, and it has been a blast, but I have been playing through the main story, and it’s great.

I have been thinking about Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis and making it my second game and base pso2. No point trying of me trying to farm gear for a game whose end-game gear is worth 4 billion. not worth it.
