Half-Life:..I fired a RPG

You fired a video game at a boss? That sounds intense!

Anyway, I always thought fighting Rapheal the Raven in YI the first time is still pretty intense. The screen spins for crying out loud!

As for RPG's, I aways have fun fighting Fawful any time, in any form in the first M&L game. I always get a kick out of the scenes that happen right before/after the battle (or during, as in the case of the first battle).

The Axem Rangers are always a bit of a challenge for me. It doesn't seem like it matters what kind of level I am at, Bowser and Geno always seem to die at the point where they fire up the Breaker. Mallow can take at least one round (which is good since I use the round it recharges to recharge myself), but those two always die..

Also, this..

Right now I'm playing through SMRPG and only saving at the beginning, so when I get a game over, I end up back at Mario's Pad with all the experience (although only for the people in your party at the time). So I just fought the Hammer Bros. at level 24.

sounds like fun! What happens when you are level 24 and someone joins your party? Do they stay at level 4 (or whatever level they normally join you at) or are they super powered as well??

The ones who were battling alongside Mario keep the EXP, while those on the sidelines are left to wallow with their mediocre stats and levels.

I haven't touched SMRPG since getting to and stuck on Yaridovich.

Beating Boss Battles on Intense was... intense!  I was at about 120% damage when I beat Tabuu, so it was pretty close.  I swear, my heart was pounding for an hour afterwords.

If I saved after they joined the party, they keep all the experience they got. Otherwise, they just start at the level they normally start at. So I've got Mario with 193 HP right next to Mallow with 30 HP. I'm planning on getting each character up to level 30 one at a time. I've already gotten to where I can't use my best specials on the Hammer Bros. because I can't possibly have enough max FP at that point.

When I finish that, I'm going to restart another thing I tried a while back: specials only (except on Bundt). It's a lot of fun. It gave me a new appreciation of Mallow.

For Yaridovich, remembering that the first copy the pointer is on when he first splits is the real one helps a lot.

The copies surprisingly never give me any problems.  It's that darned "water-pulse" move.  KOs any of my party members with just two uses.

Group Hug is practically cheating. It's like killing Dr. Lugae with 2 Elixirs while Reversal Gas is on instead of fighting a real battle. Or like Whirling Exor. It's that game-changing.

I've always found the temptaion to exploit SMRPG's programming flaws by Geno-Whirling Exor to be far too great to deny.

But you still lose the thread:

That was post-boss fight, bro. When else would I talk about boss fights with someone else?

EDIT: if Toad wasn't joking: the cool RPGs are Rocket Propelled Grenades.

I was joking, but that's still good to know. The more you know..

I have decided to try doing the Mario RPG levelling thing. I've never done it before, and it's kinda fun. How do you get over the monotony of pummeling the Hammer Bros over and over again?

I think I've only been back there three or four times now. I usually get pretty close to the end before getting a game over.

It works best on the Virtual Console, of course, since it requires not turning the game off for long stretches of time.

What about Lazy Shell Armor? Make Peach wear it and keep using "Group Hug" to beat the game? That's my method of choice.

I wouldn't nescessarily call Peach's Lazy Shell a programming error by any means, but it certainly makes Culex that much easier.

One day I was playing Metal Gear Solid 2. I was using a GameShark code that gave me all the game's weapons with infinite ammo. I decided to unload my AK on Fatman. What happened next was hilarious.

Fatman didn't get knocked down; rather, my AK pushed him clear across the screen and caused him to grumble 50X faster than normal.

I replayed the "boss" fight at the end of Half-Life 2: Episode 2 recently. I say "boss" fight because you fight a large number of enemies you've encountered many times before under special conditions as opposed to fighting a singular something you've never fought before. You ride around in a car and throw sticky bombs at giant tripods of death called Striders, but first you have to kill their escorts that will shoot the bombs off. You can run the escorts called Hunters over, or shoot them with your guns, or throw logs at them (I like to run them over two at a time with turbo on). After you fling the sticky bombs on the Striders you have to shoot the bomb with one of your other guns to make it explode. All the while you are doing this the Striders are marching towards a base where a rocket is about to be launched and they are blowing up buildings on the way there. It is your job to stop them before they ruin the rocket launch! One of my favorite "boss" fights or at least end-game battles ever.
