You know what the most annoying thing in the world is?? (Don't be all sarcastic and say "this post?" either.)
I'm sorry I come here to whine, but no one else understands my Jak and Daxter annoyances better than people who have the same annoyances.
So if you scroll down a little, there's a post about my hatred of that stupid Baron Praxis boss battle. Well, I'm way past that now. I got Jak 3 on Easter Sunday (I haven't played yet though, so no spoilers please!). It's spring break and I've been bored, so I did what I did last year: I played through and beat Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, and then played through Jak II. (And amazingly, since the last time I played to the final boss of Jak II, I've cut my time in half.) ANYWAY, I've been trying to beat Metal Kor for the past THREE HOURS. Yeah! I make it to the last stage, get excited, and get killed when Kor is only about 10 or so blasts from dying.
First annoyance: What..the..HELL is the autosave for (before stage 3)? Hm? Will someone please tell me, because I'm itching to know! The game autosaves before stage 3 begins, and you die, and you're taken ALL the way back to stage 1. Many naughty words were spoken when I discovered this.
Second annoyance: I was so incredibly close to beating the game about two hours ago. Kor's health was down..there was none left. NONE. AT ALL! NADA! And he didn't die!! Nope! He shot me, and I died.
Anyways, I find stages one & two easy. It's just stage three that makes me burst into tears and chuck my controller off the bed.
The main point of this was to ask if someone knew why it autosaves before stage 3 begins, or what it's for.
Thanks for listening. =D
EDIT: 2 hours later..still not finished. Although, I have been taking rather long breaks to prevent myself from going insane.
So, I know you all care. That's why I'm telling you.
After a grand total of 18 hours and 9 minutes..I beat Jak II.
Not long after I made that last edit, I finally beat Metal Kor. =D
The ending made me cry like a baby. I still can't get over that Vin is dead. I loved Vin. I already knew Sig was alive, since I saw videos at gamespot.com for Jak 3, and I've played nearly all of Jak X. And I'm glad he's alive cause he's definitely in my top 5 favorite characters. "Don't wet your fur, chili pepper, cause we're ROLLIN' WITH THE PEACEMAKER!" "If I can't shoot it, it's some one else's problem." *giggle* And there was something that made me teary about seeing the kid go through the rift with younger Samos. Yeah yeah..I know. "It's just a video game!" And Jak & Keira nearly kissed, hahaha!! Ahh! Favorite couple ever! What else..Naughty Ottsel? Yeah, that's pretty hilarious if I do say so myself. Did anyone else find it sad that Baron Praxis is dead? I kept expecting him to come back to life, but no.
I finally beat Jak II..and I'm sorta sad, lmao. I didn't really want it to end.
Man, gotta love 'em.
So..ON TO JAK 3!
( Right after I find a nice little walkthrough..;) )
