Conqueror of the Swarm!

Conqueror of the Swarm! (124/293)

  1. I guess one notable flaw with this new Lego Star Wars game is that you need to be standing in just the right spot to be able to utilize certain abilities, often with no specific indicators on the ground or otherwise to help out. Well, at least you finally got the achievement for completing all three challenges in a single level. (And I guess I shouldn't bother with checking the guide for every single challenge, if you're going to spend so much time trying to figure out games mechanics that I'm sure had been explained sometime earlier.) Anyway, two more levels left to go to complete Episode I, then it'll be on to Episode II.
  2. And now the original trilogy is fully completed. Interesting to see the abilities of the scavenger class of characters, so that's something to look forward to for the sequel trilogy. For now, it's onto the prequel trilogy. The interesting thing about the guide I found is that progress on it was done in chronological order, so its contents of the prequel trilogy will be more complete than the original trilogy, so hopefully that'll mean you'll soon have a potential opportunity to complete all three challenges in a single level.
  3. Finished with Empire Strikes Back and two levels done with Return of the Jedi, so it may be possible to complete the three remaining levels of that movie within the next stream, next week (especially if there's one vehicle level like with the two previous movies). For all your success with collecting studs, you don't seem to be getting many challenges done at all, and only slightly better at collecting minikits. Hopefully, it won't be much longer before some people start writing guides that I can check out to perhaps help you out a little with that. Personally, I prefer to stick with the intended characters while going through story mode, but you're the one playing this game and not me, so I'll try not to ruin your fun by my silly insistence on waiting until after completing all story levels before checking out any additional stuff.
  4. Interesting to see some other new mechanics in action. There were some things I would've liked to point out, but the two-minute delay I had with the chat made it impractical for me to provide any quick advice. As for those special bricks (I can't remember what it is you're calling them), there's certainly quite a lot of them to find (especially since six for each level would total only 270), but considering the vast amount of upgrades there are to purchase and how progressively more expensive they become, it's no wonder there's over a thousand of those bricks to collect. Not much else for me to mention that I didn't already talk about, so I'll look forward to next week's stream with the last level of Empire Strikes Back and the first level or two of Return of the Jedi.
  5. Okay, so not only do we now have a better idea of how the game is structured, but also Episode IV: A New Hope is already completed. Five levels for each movie, and each level has five minikits and three challenges. While some levels seem to go by rather quickly, others seem to take a little bit longer, though still short enough to get through, I'm guessing, three on average for each stream. At that rate, I'm anticipating it'll be July or August by the time you finish Story Mode for all nine parts of this game (assuming you don't take any weeks off, of course). Nice to see you also unlocked a few more achievements, though I wouldn't be surprised if they were simply the relatively easy ones. Also, it's a good thing I intend to play this game myself sometime later, because I'll learn from these streams when I should be patient so I can listen to the entire dialogue.
  6. I think you accidentally linked to contest #78 instead of #79 (not that it matters much, since the intended topic is somewhat easy to find). Anyway, I voted for entry 4, as it's really the only one I'm familiar with, as far as the theme of this contest goes.
  7. That sure was fun to see. So many new gameplay aspects, and yet there's plenty of familiar things to remind us that it's still a Lego video game. I'm definitely looking forward to when I'll have an opportunity to play this game, myself. For now, I look forward to next week's stream (and since some gamers will inevitably be playing this game for several days in a row, perhaps it won't be long before we start seeing some early guides show up that might help out a bit).
  8. Good progress this week, and an excellent stopping point ahead of switching to the newly released game next week. Also good to see you got the achievement for that high dive from the ship. (What I remember from that specific location when I had played this game is that, in my efforts to obtain the True Pirate rank without using any stud multiplier red bricks, I got to True Pirate on that level when I collected the purple stud at the end of that high walkway, so it was literally the last thing I did before making the final strike against Davey Jones that ended the level). Just five more levels left to go through in freeplay mode, along with the bonus level and whatever few remaining achievements are left. (And hopefully, you won't need too many reminders of how this game works by the time you return to it after several weeks of Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga.) Definitely excited for next week to see what that new Lego game will be like. (Of course, with it being a newly released game, there will be no guides available to help, so I'll be trying to figure things out alongside you as you play, at least for the very first day.)
  9. This sure looks like an interesting new kind of Lego game. The graphics kinda remind me of Lego Builder's Journey, but this time we have actual minifigures. From what I saw in the video, what I find especially neat is how the building feature utilizes somewhat realistic physics, which means these builds can fail if your design is not properly balanced, as if you were actually building with real Lego bricks. I'll definitely be interested in getting this game once it's available, though just like with that other upcoming Lego game, I'll probably wait until sometime later to see if I can buy it on Steam during a sale.
  10. While it's certainly nice to see Bionicle represented in this set, I'm honestly excited by the wide variety of other iconic sets and themes that are also featured in this set, such as a city police station, the original yellow castle, the classic spaceship, a Technic vehicle, a classic train, the original pirate ship, the Adventurers sphinx, a Ninjago dragon, and of course the old wooden duck that started it all. Needless to say, this one is definitely going to be a must have for me.
  11. Some rather good progress this week on Lego Pirates of the Caribbean. Yes, there is that achievement for high-diving into the maelstrom, and from what I've read, it must be specifically from the highest possible place to jump off from, which is basically the very last platform you need to reach in the swordfight against Davy Jones (in other words, it'll have to be done in the same location where you would take out the last heart to end the level, so pretty much just be careful to not get too eager to finish the level so you don't miss that achievement). Also, for that achievement of riding all animals, it seems the giant crabs on the last beach of that first level you played today might not be necessary, so if that's true, then the only animal you have left to ride would be the giant spider on the final level of the fourth movie, and that'll be necessary for collecting a minikit, so at this point, you might be all set for that one. Lastly, I would highly suggest that you go right in the hub area towards the dock past the lighthouse where the minikit ships are located. Not only will riding all of those ships be necessary for another achievement, but also a gold brick will appear after you complete all five minikit ships for each movie (so two should be available by now, and a third will be unlocked if you manage to complete the last two levels of movie three next week), so make sure you don't forget to check that out. As always, I'll be looking forward to see how well you do next week.
  12. I haven't yet been able to watch that video, but from reading the article and seeing the few images along with it, I continue to have high hopes for this game. Even though I probably won't get around to trying this game for a while due to others things I've got going on these days, I am still definitely looking forward to watching the game content on Twitch Tuesday before I eventually have the opportunity to play it myself.
  13. As much I find this new DeLorean Time Machine set to be very interesting, I think I'll pass on it, as there are other new sets this year that I'm even more interested in. Besides, I already own the early Ideas themed set that came out around ten years ago, and since I'm not really much of a Back to the Future enthusiast, that's probably good enough for me.
  14. There have been many announcements over the last few weeks regarding this year's new content following after last year's New Generation movie. The main series, using the same 3D animation as the movie and like the movie will be on Netflix, will be titled "Make Your Mark" and will consist of a 44-minute special coming out on May 26, the first season (consisting of at least 8 episodes) will be out on September 26, and there will be a 44-minute holiday special on November 26. Additionally, there will also be a 2D animated series that'll be available on YouTube, starting on April 7. Unlike the story-driven main series, this series, titled "Tell Your Tale", will be short episodes that focus more on everyday life. Finally, there will also be a video game coming out on all the major consoles on May 27, titled "A Maretime Bay Adventure". (I consider this news particularly significant, considering that the FiM series we were all familiar with over the past decade never got a console video game at all.) We certainly have got a lot to look forward to, this year.
  15. As much as I would like to see the reviews of these two Lego City Space sets, I have no desire to make any social media accounts, so I guess that leaves me unable to check it out.
