Eco-Thecno factory’s inside run race. Or as I like to call it, the Chatty Cathy Level. The little characters in this level have plenty to say to me, warning me of danger and being surprised I got so far. I’m pressing the circle button like crazy and still the danger guy won’t shut up, repeating his warning in another language. One of the characters eventually tells her little friend to shut up. Thanks. But don’t bother. You’re just adding to the text noise and reaction time is a factor here. You’d think that these little dudes would chill now that I’ve reached double-digits in replaying. But no. They chatter on uselessly every time. They get on my nerves so. Or they did. Until I found…
Flame hat. Oh flame hat, how I love thee. I didn’t even know what you were at first. You just glommed onto my head at a save point. Took me several deaths to figure you out. But now, oh now how I wish I could take you out into the world. Because sometimes I need to set something on fire over there, but I’m way too far away to get the job done.
Oh well, I’ll just have to be content with our time together here in Eco-Thecno blah blah blah. Don’t worry. I’ll return. Since you helped me off one of those Chatty Cathies with a sliding electified platform–it was an accident, I swear–I’m forever in your debt. Plus, now that my zero first-place score has been knocked off, you can bet I’ll be back.
I heart you, flame hat.
