    I think I'm making some good progress. I got to the sixth sanctuary, went through that dungeon/human person and the pyramid, and then I went to the swamp, then I went to the town with all the shy people. I got a call from apple/orange kid. I want to get to Winters now to meet them, but I can't find a spot to use teleport, I keep running into a wall. I'll keep looking.

    Edit: Nevermind, I just saw Poo has teleport level 2. I'm off!

    I did the sixth sanctuary and I'm looking for the seventh. I just gave the "Overcoming shyness" book to the shy town.

    I just beat the 7th sanctuary boss. He had that annoying reflective PSI shield, but I took him out pretty easily thanks to two of those multibottle rockets from Jeff. I have plenty of money to blow anyway. Now I'm in some odd prehistoric area.

    I did it, I beat Earthbound! I have to admit, I was kind of annoyed when this game was picked, just like I was kind of skeptical when Dues Ex was picked but I'm glad I played through both of them. Earthbound was one of those ironic games that I want to say I have played/know about, but that I never actually sat down to play. Kind of like Final Fantasy 7. It was just one of those things that was on my bucketlist, but because it wasn't urgent, I kept putting it off and there was never a time when I was actually going to get around to it. Finally getting it on the monthly game discussion gave me the excuse I needed to finish it.

    The humor in it is really strange, but really entertaining, I think I'd have liked it more had I given it more of a chance back when I first got the game. Although I may miss out on being a hipster who disliked Earthbound.

    Since this month's discussion went a little more successfully, I'm hoping a certain someone will consider rejoining in next month.;)

    Lastly, I leave you all with this. I don't know how they pulled this off but reading this sign was more emotionally impactful than most video games deaths are.

    Glad you liked it Syk :D

    The reason why I'm behind all of you is probably because I'm going for a 100% completion run (sort of), with everyone's ultimate weapons and unlocks. I'm currently farming Uncontrollable Spheres for that 1/128 chance of getting a Broken Attena, which Jeff can repair for his ultimate weapon. Currently beaten 20 enemies so far with no success.

    Edit: 30 now :(
    Edit: 40 :(
    Edit: Holy snap, got the Broken Attena at the 46th Uncontrollable Sphere. :D

    Edit: Beat the 7th Sanctuary Boss, now I'm in the Lost Underworld. I also have all of Poo's equips now hell yea!

    Edit: K I beat the 8th Sanctuary and beat Magicant. Now I'm off to farm Major Psychic Psychos for 3 Star Pendants, each with a 1/128 chance :( Currently at 5
    Edit: I'm at 25 :(
    Edit: 50 :(
