Blogging Earthbound: A Recaptured Memory #4

So, I brought Jeff from Dr. Andonut’s Lab back to Threed, and, in perfect style, his Bad Key Machine was exactly what was needed to get Ness and Paula out of the Cemetery. Some grinding got him leveled up to everyone else, and buying some goodies from the man behind the drugstore got him nicely ready for some tough battles to come. Powerful zombies here I come. Fully stocked, I headed towards the demon tent at the bottom of Threed, and the epic battle began! …And I used Jeff’s Big Bottle Rocket and one-shotted the boss. One. Shot. The Boss. In a way, I was a little disappointed that this battle that I’d remembered as being so difficult was so easily won. But now that I’ve thought about it, it’s kinda awesome that a few hours into a game you can one-shot a boss. Of course, I can’t do that any more until I can find some more of those bad boys, but the fact that I did it is still awesome. From there, I zombie-papered the municipal tent with a little help from the Apple Kid and the Mach Pizza delivery man, loaded up on regular Bottle Rockets and headed toward the creepy underground lair where the zombie problem came from.

@Genjai  Thanks for writing this up....it's been such a long time since I've played through this game. Seems like an important part of my childhood....hah as ridiculous  as that may sound.

@xpogox:  No prob! It truly is my pleasure. 
 
I'm not quite sure what it is about this game that was so appealing to me as a boy and now as a much older boy... It's something I hope to discover over the course of this blog. Thanks for noticing!

Big Bottle Rockets are go! 
 
And it was the big pile of ick that was hard for me! That tent, not so much. Gooo, Paula's Prayer for making me insanely lucky during that one.

@Sparklykiss: I haven't had a whole lot of luck with Paula's Prayer so far. I guess I need to keep giving it a fair shake though.

@Genjai: If I knew I could win the fight with out her having to do much, I prayed with Paula every time. Just for the different options. I started getting really lucky and having her send holy magical light of awesome heal us. It was the best. :D 
 
But she can also give you all colds, too. :<
