I battled past a rather nasty headache today and recovered Captain Olimar's 30th and final spaceship part. I had to repeat this stage a fair number of times, but finally found success by allowing my bomb-carrying yellow pikmin to be eaten by the big snail/lady bug hybrid boss. This reduced its health low enough to have a shot at defeating it with good old fashioned flower power. If I were to repeat, I would probably reverse the process, attacking first and bombing second so as to avoid this critter's nasty jump attack. My final tally - 30 parts in 22 days. I might play it again to see if I can beat this mark, but I'm not sure yet.

And just what makes you think that the hybrid ladybug creature was a lady? What do you have against ladies. anyway? If I didn't know better, I would be mighty suspicious. Besides, the whole last scene looked like it would be a breeze for me.

It would be a breeze for you. That's why you should start playing immediately.

OOOHH....Congratulations...shall we trade up for Pikmin2?

Absolutely! Is this something I could have done locally or what? Are you talking about trading at one of the EBGames places? If so, I can have that investigated tomorrow.

The only problem with eb games is that it's only like $2 cheaper than new especially if it made it into the game cube hits.

Yeah, I've noticed that. No deals there. Where else do you do the trade-in? My thinking is simply that, if I can get this done or have someone local do it, we'd have Pikmin 2 by the next time you were in the area. That would be fun. Just lay some instructions on me and I'll see if I can outsource it. :)
