More feeble efforts. I managed 1074m on the 1500m run on one attempt – rubbish! Another attempt was even worse, with a rather apt 666m. Stupid game.

Looks like I’m nearly at the end of the game now. I had whirlwind romances with Barbera Jo (ended in a wet T-shirt competiton), Suzi (I joined her rock group and then spanked her), and Morgan. Morgan is by far the most bizarre of them, as she’s some kind of internet nerd, with whom I played strip-hand-slappy with, then the rudest game of Dungeons and Dragons you can imagine, and then finally we streaked campus. As they say in Americaland, “she has issues”.

Next step is the finals of Swingles. And then I’ll be free of annoying, repetitive minigames! Hurrah!

Managed to win over Harriet first, who is very scary indeed. Not least that she’s possessed by some kind of demon. Nor that she only wants me if I dress up as a tree. Anyway, I figured out an easy way to win the hand-slappy game, and so got the Token of Affection from her a little later. Next, it was on to Beatrice, the professor in the lab. This was even more wrong, as it involved swapping my brain with a sex-crazed monkey who wanted the professor as well. Wrongness.

Those two ladies done with, I took part in the next round of Swingles, which was a wet T-shirt contest. And was very easy. I’m now onto the final phase, which involves three girls this time. I’m met Suzi, but she wants me to accessorise my “cool” clothes, but I can’t find anyone selling accessories for it. Barbara-Jo let me speak to her if I wore accessorised “trendy” clothes, which I had, and challenged me to (yawn) more trampolining. I then had to prank phonecall her. Have more to do with her yet, and haven’t seen Morgan yet either.

My time today was split between Analisa (guess Larry’s hilarious pronunciation of that, if you can) and Bilzarbra (what kind of a name is that?). I managed to “win” them both over, which in Bilzarbra’s case involved a sentient arcade machine.

I also stumbled across the Porn Fairy, who looks alarmingly like Ron Jeremy. He burst into song, singing about being the Porn Fairy to the tune of the Gilbert and Sullivan “Pirate King” song. Which was nice.

Grrr. There is cheating afoot. There must be! I never get any of the tiles I want, and the computer always manages to finish before I’m even halfway. When I get down to needing, say, either a 3 of Bamboo or a 6 of Bamboo to win, I get a steady stream of useless Wind and Dragon tiles. Conversely, if I want a particular Wind tile, all I get is tiles from suits I’m not even aiming for. Cheating. FACT.

Tried some sort of Story Mode today, and that appeared to be easier, and had powerups (that I couldn’t figure out how to use). But I still lost every game.

Just like 1000m before it, 1500m is plainly not possible. Except 1000m was, it seemed. Anyway, 1500m can’t be done. FACT. I got to 1200m or so, and died.

I got a new video capture device today, so I thought I’d test it with my Famicom. And I then spent an hour playing (and losing) Mahjongg on it. Bah.

I’m sure this game cheats. You start with 27,000 points, and over the course of about 10 rounds, I lost them all to the computer. I won just one round, and only got about 500 points for that. Cheeky cheating computer. Boooo!

Due to PC transplantation duties, I didn’t play this for long. It certainly seems a bit bizarre, and I’m not sure it’s a puzzle game that my brain can cope with. Nevertheless, I managed a score of over 100,000 on one of the game modes. The one that says “0-100” on it at the beginning. Don’t look at me like you don’t know.

1000m BEAT! Hurrah! I used items again, but then, the game is obviously impossible without them. I’ve unlocked Anna now too, who sounds about 50 years old, yet looks 12. Now onto the 1500m level, which exists only for Namco to mock me further.

I found an easy way to make money today – taking photos. Get at least two “lights” on the camera, and take a picture. Then, take your snaps to the geeky guy in the library and he’ll pay you for them, $1-per-light, for a fee of $1-per-photo. The cheerleaders all in one shot gets you $4 this way, so you can rack up the money fairly easily.

Won over Zanna, by beating her at strip-trampolining (as you do), and they then produced a jetpack from nowhere and flew off into the sky. I then wooed Luba, whom you can’t even speak to unless you’re drunk. This makes the “making smalltalk” mini-game impossible, since you’re drunk. Luckily, you stop being drunk, but still play again if you fail. Then it was onto some trampolining (again) and quarters (again). Why do you have to play one of two silly mini-games for every single girl? Stupid. Anyway, I “completed” Luba in the end, although not in the way you might expect. I’m ready for the next round of Swingles then. Joy.

Great. I got up to 955m this time, and died. Again. I’m sure someone at Namco is laughing at me. I hate them.

Hmm. I need to get better at the (frankly, bizarre) mini-games, I think. Specifically, the hand-slappy one, which I lost to Harriet. Three times. I don’t even understand what you’re supposed to do to slap her hands, never mind actually win!

Also “entertained” Ione and talked to Russian buffalo-girl Zanna, who I also had to save from immigration officials. As you do.

I’d played an hour or two of this filthy, shallow, repetitive, addictive Xbox game before Christmas, and decided to make it my next game (after Paper Mario 2) to play. It’s, er, a little different to Paper Mario 2 as well.

Chatted up Ione for a bit, and found the cognac she was after (a drunk hip-hop tramp had it, of course), and played quarters with her. As you do. Beat her, but she wasn’t up for much “more”, so I wandered round campus a bit. Spoke to some other woman outside, and played quarters with her too, and beat her. Then she went and hid somewhere.

Bought some unlockables from the library too. Computer generated nudity isn’t really as great as you might think.

985m! Gah! SMASH SMASH SMASH!!

Paper Mario 2: THE ENDED

I must be on a roll this weekend! Once Gloomtail was out of the way, I did wonder if Paper Mario 2 was going to suffer from The SuckySuck(TM) bit that many games do; namely, recycle all of the bosses one after another before the end boss (see Feel the Magic, Viewtiful Joe, etc.). Luckily, it didn’t.

Between Gloomtail and the end, there was a fairly long puzzley bit, and then it was muliple-boss time. Grodus, Bowser, Kammi, and then [spoiler]. And then the longest end of game sequence EVAAR. But it was best, and so am I. Obviously.
