I stopped playing but didn't die so I lost all the progress i made. To unlock a few things you have to get certain scores on Arcade. Bleh.
On the plus side, I decided I like the zombie character, Zappa, the best. He's goofy but predictable enough that I have learned most of his moves already. Though I haven't understood how some of the weirder things work. He can pull out healper sprites: ghosts, a dog, or a sword. Occasionally he sprouts these orbs. If you get enough orbs and do the helper sprite buttons you turn into this uber blue god thing. Problem is I can't figure how to produce those orbs reliably. I'll get it eventually. For now, I'm glad that button mashing is an acceptable form of play.
I still really like Faust, the 9 ft doctor with the 6 ft scalpel but he's too slow and too unpredictable for a beginner. I'll stick with the zombie. Now to get the room mates to play.
And because I'm thinking of zombies now:
Favorite post-apocalypse reality?
A Boy and his Dog
A Canticle for Leibowitz
Escape from L.A.
Planet of the Apes
Y: The Last Man
Feeling mediocre today. Didn't cycle again. Been a lazy week with too many Verona meetings.
Next week promises to be so much better.
Don't forget! Housewarming on Saturday!
I've sent out 1 set of directions. Everyone else know how to get there?
