Thanks for the info about the gym, I do feel like a bit of a dope for not getting where the bosses were .
I'm loving! this game, this is awesome, both parts, and I am really looking forward to earning boards and gems and such. Actually it's odd, I've played lots of complex games recently, and I'm realziing my skill at arcade games has gone down the tubes (in my attempted online game I got roundly busted). Actually i wonder if there is a way to practice minigames once you've unlocked them, or what the purpose of unlocking minigames is generally, though I suppose I'll find out.
With the card battle it'd also be nice to have an explanation of what some of the stats do especially sinse I slightly confuse things like physical level and fighter type level.
I have three bugs to report.
Firstly when deck editing, the ctrl speech interupt doesn't seem to work when viewing cards which can make the process a bit tortuous.
Secondly, in the mushroom path, the instructions for objects were still in french.
Thirdly, crazy stuff happens when I hit escape to get out of some menus, often the game will freeze, indeed I've had to shut down card battle a couple of times with alt f4 because I had hit escape to get out of the more actions menu.
I also have two mechanics suggestions. It'd be nice to be able to repeat instructions for minigames in case you miss them, not to mention notifications when you raise in level sinse I only realize the game had levels when looking at the stats (no idea what they do yet if anything).
A couple of further ideas.
First, it'd be nice to have a chat system for online games to talk to people on the same server as you, particularly when they're people I know. It'd also be nice if I could shutoff the music (and I mean turning off with one keystroke), while I was waiting for other people to join my party, or better still play single player mode while waiting for enough people for online mode.
Secondly, it would be good if the solo board game had some sort of reward for playing it. It's great fun, but right now it just gets you coins and I don't see many uses for coins in your box so far, (I think I missed the reward at the valley with the box sinse it started and I didn't realize it was a top down find and open scenario).
Third, the gym fights rock and are a nice way to unlock cards, but it'd be nice to play a single battle for some sort of reward system, say for example a battle against a single trainer where you won a random card as a prize. the description of the gym as containing bosses is very accurate, so it'd be nice to know what the normal enemies are.
As I said, this game rocks, indeed I'm going to have to go and go to sleep soon, though I don't know how I'll tare myself away from this one :d.
With our dreaming and singing, Ceaseless and sorrowless we! The glory about us clinging Of the glorious futures we see,
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)
