Exploded by a water mine before realizing I was supposed to go fart eggs in the bucket up on the ledge next to it.

Engraved here is an image of the Sole Survivor, Preston Garvey and some legendary super mutants. The Sole Survivor is dead. Preston Garvey is making a plaintive gesture. The super mutants are laughing.

This image relates to itisnotlogical deciding to never play Fallout 4 again after losing almost an hour of progress to what is essentially bad luck.

Banjo-Kazooie.

Farting eggs at things is literally the default answer in that game.

Vomiting eggs also counts.


I got absolutely wasted by a bear recently. And a gang of bandits.

I am sad the first two paragraphs did not relate to the third.

Do Banjo and Kazooie count as a bandit gang?

Big scary piece of construction equipment gone evil?    No problem.

Giant evil security mech boss with heat seeking missiles trying to kill me?  Ha, easy.

Some random prick in a space suit standing around minding his own business?  Kills me like 15 times.

Know what my favorite part of a high-speed action game about robot ninjas and giant mecha is?

Stealth sections. It's not technically forced since you can fight your way through, it's just a really obnoxious fight against a gang of extremely tough enemies.

I died several times because Raiden just decided not to parry many perfectly blockable attacks.

Spent all of my heal items/injections, then I've met a heavily-armored cyborg with some sort of electric quarterstaff. Needless to say, I got fucking murdered there.

Crashed into a wall hard enough to hurt myself, which was my last health point after I got hit by a snowball from a laughing snowman.

Banjo-Kazooie.

The snowmen were kind of irritating, but not as bad as the ice blocks...

A stacking mechanic! I'm about to be hit by a big attack, and the more people that get hit by it, the less it does to each individual person!

Playing against my co-worker. He did some jiggery pokery and managed to summon Obelisk the Tormentor on turn 3. For those who don't know, Obelisk is one of those fuck-off "I win" cards, like legendaries in Hearthstone.

I could have stopped it by preventing him from ever having enough monsters on the field to tribute; the problem was his deck was built 100% intentionally, whereas mine was assembled from random boosters and many of the cards are 10+ years old.

"Undersea oddity" pops up again. Now i have one kraken cannon and electric cannonballs (!?), so i'm prepared to deal with this violent atrocity. If someone will be tanking all the stun damage, all will be fine. I also have taken two fully trained bugeye psionics for some reason.
 Ok, got out of tunnel. Cannon works alright. Bugeyes bug out, still think they are underwater, fly around, drown to death. Screw that, i'm not replaying this. Enemies are finished off. What i got for all this? 500000$ worth of vendor trash and arcane tome. Not that much, but surely tome is something amazing! Probably not as amazing as Codex violent atrocity, but still.

So i immediately research it. And lo, it tells me how to make captured female mages (which i yet hasn't even seen) into stockpile extension! Fuck. Fuuuuck!

Opened it up after several months during which there were some significant updates. Do the tutorial quests, which ended with me traveling to a nearby trader. Left the trader, walked a bit towards some buildings, found one that looked like another trader outpost. Two trader outposts within a few hundred meters of each other? I walked in to take a look.

Nope, it's a new building type that must have been added in the meantime: an abandoned/overrun trader outpost. Filled with zombies. A lot of zombies.

Ouch, especially since Set(the English translations of the god-cards' names are utter garbage) is a flat 4000A/4000D, and can give up its attack for a turn to instead sacrifice two of its allies to nuke the enemy side.

Highly unlikely that you'd have these cards, but if you want a hilariously broken OP cheese that I found while double-checking the god-cards' effects, try summoning two "Flint Lock"s and a "Fire Princess", and playing "Flint" and "Morale Boost".

Flint is an offensive-use equip card that reduces its holder's ATK by 300 and prevents it from changing position; if the holder dies it jumps to another monster on the field. Flint Lock tells that whole effect to piss off, and can force Flint to be equipped to it, negating Flint's effect and instead making Flint Lock indestructable in battle(though it can only have one Flint at a time). Two Flint Locks can pass a Flint between them ad infinitum without changing turn or turn phase, each time counting as equipping a monster with an equip card... which is where Morale Boost comes in; it gives you 1000LP every time you equip a monster(meaning you now have infinite Life Points)... and that's where Fire Princess comes in, she damages your opponent directly by 500LP every time you gain LP; meaning you just won.

Oh, and that strategy is perfectly legal, with the only official ruling on it* is that using Flint Lock's effect multiple times in a turn is allowed.

I didn't die per se, but lost quite a lot in the rematch against the polar bear in Banjo-Kazooie.  The rubber band physics here are really, really annoying.  After about 10 tries the only way I could figure out how to beat him was to intentionally do bad near the end so that he'd slow down, and then race past him to the finish line.  If you're doing too well at that point, he'll rubber band physics past you by accelerating uphill with no source of propulsion and it's impossible to win.

I didn't feel accomplishment so much as relief when I was done, which came after muting the game because I got sick of hearing him talk, taunt and insult me as he cheated to win.

Kind of reminded me of boxing the yeti in Spyro 3.  Just a little.

Rubber banding is the most annoying form of artificial difficulty imo, barely beating out level scaling. It's like damn dude, in Mario Kart for the SNES if you were good at the game you could lap the computer racers (usually never further than the 7th place guy, but still). Nowadays if you're good at the game instead of just letting you have your victory they give the computer blatantly unfair advantages just to make it 'feel competitive'. :/
