The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the... KOROK?
I wanted to complete it 100%, and of course that included Koroks in my plan. You'll see, this game has the side quest of collecting some rare seeds from the Korok, tree-sprout-like characters that come from the Ancient Deku Tree. They were hidden all across Hyrule...
900 to be exact!
So there was I, playing one of the newest biggest sand box games in history; searching under EVERY tree, EVERY rock, EVERY pond; climbing high, hiking back; fighting goblins all over; and FINDING the precious Korok seeds. you use them to increase your weapons carriage capacity, but after some point there is nothing left to acquire.
you actually reach this point after you collect around 500 of those gold-yellow seeds, oh so precious... then, what the h*ll are the rest of the seeds for? I HAD to find out.
After seven long months of playing whenever adult life allowed me, I managed to find the last little korok hidden on the top of the hyrule Casttle. I was READY to find out what would I get for completing the long exhausting task.
When I arrived with the chubby Korok Obab, he was so amazed "What a great news!" he exclaimed. I could feel the prize getting near ... is ... is ...it sure is ....
No, wait a minute. It's something more than that, it is... it's...it's...
I obtained Korok Poop as a reward? sh*t, poop, dung, crap, deposition, feces... Poop???
I just know that I NEED this image on a T-shirt.
TEKKEN 3 - From Pro to Punched...
So, having few options, I trained with Xiaoyu for months till I got the complete version of the game. Time after, my brothers and I started a little home business like a Videogame room and renting some videogames time to neighbors. Players from all the area came to our house. One particular day, a bunch of 20 something guys appeared and they wanted to play Tekken 3. They were battling and enjoying the game and some how the question of who was the strongest in the house appeared.
My older brother immediately said that among us, I was the strongest with a bragging accent and a smirk I can still remember to this day. I knew I was in trouble.
Let's fight! - Xiaoyu vs Paul
FINAL ROUND The decisive moment came. I was preparing another combo to surprise him. The guy just remained silent and we started fighting. It was even till he read one of my moves, and what came after was a rain of charged punches that sent me flying so far the screen wasn't long enough!! everybody screamed in the room. My contender only made a smirk while his friends were praising him.
And as for me? oh please Earth sallow me now! shame on me, shame on my family, shame on my cow. That is where my bragging brother got me...
ELUNE WHAT? yes, That is a Mobile Game
This is more unfamiliar for everybody. In 2015, I downloaded a game named Elune Saga. You trained heros and equipped them cards to fight RPG style in a world of fantasy and adventures. I played this with one of my best friend, and we enjoyed the game pretty much. We even started a guild of our own and Farmed the H*LL out the game for that. After months and months, the raids finally started. We were so exited and later we realized those battle were too much for such a small, free-play owners guild like ours. Just a couple weeks after that, we received a message...
"The servers will be shut down on sunday."
Is this really happening? we couldn't believe that all of a sudden the game was going to be off for good! -After the news, we researched a bit and found out that Gamevil company and his creator said the game caused too much addiction and they didn't intended to cause that... yeah right. I will NEVER play a GAMEVIL game AGAIN!
This basically felt like Netflix cancelling a show season, but with videogames. To this day @josecarrerag still mocks me for playing under-downloaded games with no players' support from the playstore...
There you go, Three shamefull, angry, horrible moments of my gaming life. I hope you smiled a bit reading this (if you get this far lol). Shoot something at the comments! throw the knives! I am ready.
