I've begun a SoulSilver randomized nuzlocke with my own custom rules, which are:
KO means death
Can only catch one pokemon per route, but can choose which one
No buying items, can only use items you find
One-shot gyms, caves, dungeon-like areas (can't leave to go heal; can't return afterward)
The randomization rules are pretty similar to the Kaizo randomizer, but I can't remember exactly which settings I chose. Mainly, every pkmn is random with a random ability, moveset, evolution(s), and distribution of stats. Items are random. Trainers have their pkmn at boosted levels.
So far it's pretty fun. My 3rd rule is making catching pokemon hard since balls are really hard to get. I managed to catch 1 pkmn before the 1st gym but it died inside the gym, so now I have only my starter pkmn and no balls left. But it's also pretty easy compared to Kaizo ironmon rules because you can grind XP to level up and you can use your items without restrictions.
I also decided that if I get 10 revives or max revives I can revive one of my dead pokemon It seems like a tough but achievable feat to hope for.
Grow and modify an ecosystem, with simulated evolution by natural selection creating the lifeforms that inhabit it. All the creatures in the trailer evolved on their own in the game. None were hand-edited!
It's super fun if you're into evolution sims; the fish even have neural networks that you can watch in real time which is so crazy to me.
Someone recently got me into the game corru.observer (literally type that into your search bar to go to the game, it has its own webpage) and let me tell you, it’s a masterpiece. It starts off as a sort of linear adventure game/visual novel. The storytelling is incredibly confusing at first, and I don’t mean that lightly; it takes quite a while before you understand anything you’re doing. But once you reach the area known as the Embassy… holy cow, it gets good. The worldbuilding starts making more sense, the storytelling is kicked up to eleven, and it even pulls out a unique and interesting turn-based combat system. If you’re a fan of Homestuck or Undertale (or both) you’ll almost certainly enjoy it. Oh, and did I mention the incredible art style? It’s so cool, honestly. The story begins when you and your accomplice Moth find an unmarked data storage device known as a Corru and decide to hack into it. Everything that happens next… is probably a spoiler, so I won’t say anything more. Just go check it out. Seriously.
It was so much fun playing with NICE ICE! last night
Made it through Mt Moon and beat the rival at Cerulean (often a run-killer in my experience)
I had to stop because it was dinnertime/getting late so he's still alive for next time
edit: oh, forgot to mention I replaced Pay Day with Confusion which was a huge get
Baldur's Gate. Fun. Expensive. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO PLAY! So I got a co-op player who's played a million times. Also....I don't have a map...because my graphics card is SO old...So I gotta rely on the player who i'm co-oping to like be like hey go over there there's something cool. XD
In the Halloween spirit, I’ve been replaying some of my favorite spooky games, which has led to me discovering that playing Little Nightmares II is very depressing when you know how it ends. The first time, the initial twist was so shocking that I didn’t really process it. The second time it’s just making me feel sad because the two main characters being friends makes me so happy and the ending utterly obliterates that.
