Hey don't start with that. People already think bad of me because my nickname on games is Scamor and it sounds like Scammer.

Hi Pulce! Welcome to our forums.
Is your name like the word "pulse", or more like "pul-c"? I always try to pronounce the names as I read the posts, for association.

Words come in all sizes. But even if they fit you,
they might not come at appropriate times.

Good for everyone is finding yourself first,
and then the good in others second.

Hi! Actually the correct pronunciation is "pultce" like the "c" of "chair" and the "u" sound is not like "you" but like "too"... I don't think you understood me haha sorry for the mess I made...

Ok I think I understand. I think you mean "pool-chie", right?

So, how did you find the game(s), and what do you like most of them?

For instance, I really like the replayability. You can keep playing the game even after your first finish, and still find something new. Even after 20 years, we're still discovering aspects of both games most of us didn't know about!

Haha yeah. But seeing I've only played 1 only once anyway (or was it twice?), I'm not so much shocked I didn't know about it

Oh
And here I hoped you'd be amazed, as not one of us MBNers knew about it so far.

Would you be amazed if I said I took the shortcut in the Temple of Bù in LBA1 my very first time?
I noticed the platform triggered that door, so I immediately thought of using the meca pinguin to trigger the door remotely while standing against it. It was only after I did that, that I found out there was a moving statue

Yes, it is almost the correct pronunciation. If you want to hear the correct one, go to Google translate and set the language on "Italian" and type "Pulce", then click the button to hear the sound It actually means "flea" in English haha not so sweet though...

By the way, I really love LBA because it first recalls me my happy childhood, and then i find its 3D graphics awesome and the story on which is based the game is interesting too. The dialogues are funny and sometimes I think, the dialogues were made to mock the society stereotypes... And I really love this! In addition, I spent so much time in the game searching for new secrets or unseen areas where to find objects or stuff like that. You know, every bin or box which appeared in my sight was worth to be shaken haha
So, "Explore" is the imperative which stands at the base of the whole game

Ah, so it was almost right. I don't know how to write the English pronunciation for that though. Thanks for your explanation, it's good to know your name.
Or I could just call you Flea haha

Aye the original design as has been mentioned before, was that the games were going to be a cartoonish feature. So I guess the feeling of mockery fits prefectly. The adventure part, the endless discoveries and free world are the best part of the game.

What I also particularly like in both games actually, is that I don't have to fight monsters over and over again if I don't want to, because you can evade enemies almost everywhere if you're skilled enough.

How many times did you finish LBA2?

Nice! So you're really just a newbe with LBA2?

Most of us have played the game many many times over, in lots of different ways, for instance to try to prove challenges. Maybe you'd like to give one a try as well? The Twinsuniverse project is still under a lot of work, but there are also other projects and game modification projects. They have their own forum if you're interested to read or even contribute.

Otherwise, we have our General and Offtopic forums which otherwise are quite popular. Feel free to drop in anywhere!

Exploration is awesome. For a game to be rated 10/10 by me, the map must allow you to explore a whole lot of places and interact with a bunch of things. Learning secres in video games always makes me happy

Nice to be on the same page

Personally, after all those runs, I kinda lost the exploration. I just know where everything is, where I can find everything at any particular moment in the storyline, what to do in what order, etc. So what I've specialised in nowadays, is trying to do things not in the order it was supposed to.

That's where all those challenges came from...
But for a really simple one, try the Hacienda Challenge!

No, certainly not. I may not actually know everything, but I do know I don't want to be mocked in any way.

Spoiler:
If anyone is wondering, here in plain English;
"Does that mean I can mock you like this, you rascal?"

Btw, good Find StreGGy

Damn, you got me

it looks pretty weird in english, but in italian you can't even tell the difference sometimes. One could read many words without having to know the phonetic alphabet.

pasta -> /'pasta/
salame ->/sa'lame/
confetto -> /kon'fɛtto/
uno (one) -> /'uno/
due (two) -> /'due/
tre (three) -> /'tre/

I think it's much easier to learn it for italian and spanish people. 30% of times writing a phonetic transcription of english is like "how would an italian write that english word" ?

Maybe is that because the English language might be phonetically engineered to get a smoother result? Because that's what I get, comparing it to other languages. I don't really like hard articulation, so I appreciate British a lot.

Except for Rammstein. I can't sing along with them loudly enough.

...and this is how we get offtopic again.

We often get offtopic very quickly on this board, if no-one says anything
