Pretty sure the slot reel for the handicap is a lie, and the game is picking specific handicaps just to screw me over. Twice in a row I've gotten No Accessory, No Summon Materia, No Magic Materia, No Items, and Inflict Frog status, pretty much in that order. The second time also gave me 0 MP. Both times also had a last enemy that inflicts Poison(Cloud has a Fairy Ring, which blocks Poison and Darkness, but the No Accessory handicap removes that), and you cannot use Limit attacks in Frog form.

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)

I lapped up to fourth on Bowser’s Castle 1 in the Mushroom Cup one time, through hitting all the boosters on the map and probably getting a few lucky items.

Many, many moons ago.

I try to take the water purifier place thingybob for Graygarden. It will be my first encounter with Super Mutants, besides getting picked off in the wilderness by random Legendary Skirmishers.

I snipe a Suicider; nice. Then Preston declares "I'm in the mood for some venison!" (not joking, he literally said that) and chases a radstag in the exact opposite direction of all the angry Super Mutants that I could really use his help against. A mutant hound jumps out of the brush and I'm dead before I can even enter VATS.

Whatever his companion perk is, it can't be worth all the trouble his useless AI is causing me. I might end up travelling with Buzz Lightyear and Robocop for most of the game anyway, just because everybody else I've given a chance is worthless.

Goddamned annoying mission chain involving protecting a boat with a pile of guns, then getting caught in the middle a massive street battle(fought using the guns I just helped deliver) where everyone wants me dead, then rushing back to the boat which somehow got on the other side of the lake - a distance greater than the first trip but in less time - to save the boat's pilot a second time. I was fairly poorly equipped: a sniper rifle, a pistol(I usually use a MAC-10 though), and a mortar I haven't quite learned how use yet. While trying to climb up out of the water, something near me exploded, killing me instantly.

Made a missileboat forgot to put a friendly fire module on the missile launchers.  20 highly dangerous quite large HE missiles were launched and almost immediately pulled a U-Turn and hit the boat so hard the broken shell got air time.

Killed by a weird underwater tentacle root while trying to pick up musical notes.

Banjo-Kazooie again.

Dying in this game really sucks if you've collected a lot of notes in a level or triggered switches / opened doors.  Got to do it all over again!

Killed by a cat biting my groin. This was caused by a siren continually putting me to sleep so I could not defend myself.

What does it change?  Less random collectables for the sake of collecting?  After playing the first I am hoping to get the sequel at some point, since despite its flaws it's a pretty fun game.

The notes stay collected in tooie, though I'm not really sure if that's actually better or worse since they're also laid out more like collectables in a lot of cases in tooie, and that makes it a pain in the fucking ass if you don't do it all at once or quickly after doing it partially.

So in this game you have to collect every crystal then reach the exit.
But what if you miss the somewhat tricky jump back up?  Well...
You're dead-man-walking, to use the Sierra adventure term.  Except... you're not dead.
And there's no guarantee that you *can* die.
And you can't return to the overworld, only quit the game.
You didn't manually save in the overworld before entering?  Mwahaha...
Not pictured: A later attempt where one of those top crystals was just missing.  Removed by a random fruit spawn, maybe??  Level was uncompleteable, died again.

oops there is a "quit to main level" option my bad :P

Fell to my death 3 or 4 times in the engine room in Rusty Bucket Bay in Banjo-Kazooie.  That's more deaths than I've had in the rest of the game combined.

I still really like this game, but I want to punch whoever designed this level.  I spent a good hour collecting music notes in the level before I even found how to get into the engine room, then promptly died.  Oops, got to collect them all again.  Oh yeah, and that switch I triggered to stop the propeller blades so I could advance?  That got reset too, which I only remembered after I died a few more times and got to that point but couldn't advance.  So every time I died I had to go do that first.  Oh yeah, and then there's a 65 second timer to get back out of the engine room and swim down to the propellers to get a jiggy, all while I'm frantically fighting to make Banjo and Kazooie face the right way while swimming, lest they drown because the water is poisonous in this level.

Then I spent another hour looking for the last jiggy and 11 music notes only to finally give up and google it.  I was on the lookout for things I could break to get into a hidden room, since I knew that had to be where they were, but I wasn't expecting the windows on the side of the ship, which are extremely inconspicuous and look textured on, to be the things I had to break...

Rusty Bucket Bay is cancer and we do not talk about it because the rest of the game is pure gold.

It's like they refined all the crap from other levels, leaving them shiny and good, but then the extra chaff and detritus fell to the bottom of the cartridge and formed a level.

Also holy geez the next level is Click Clock Wood which is basically the best level in any platformer, ever. I still hum the music without thinking.
