Logical error detected: In a subjective judgement system, there will always be a grey area, whether it’s between hard and impossible or “not sure if it should be hard or impossible” and “definitely impossible.”

Of course, this subjectivity problem is why we must replace Greg with a robot to help us take over the world.

Topic: Kongregate / Why is the Balloon Invasion Imp badge so infrequently earned?

I just realized it’s my least earned imp badge. I realize it has a reputation as taking forever, but it honestly probably only took me 12-15 hours of actual play time, while there are other imp badges I have that I’m pretty sure took longer than that that actually require some skill.

Yeah, so I’m not sure if it’s imp worthy or not, but level 5 is certainly way harder than the average hard badge.

Funny, I just tried You are the road and it didn’t work.

Hmmm I Earned The Badge Recently, So Maybe Something With Flash Or Unity?

FWIW I got it to work on a third try. So buggy, but maybe not completely broken.

1. The Necronomicon(Sorry but I suck at this)

The Necronomicon imp badge is like 10% strategy and 90% restarting the challenge levels until you get lucky, IIRC.

Topic: Kongregate / What is the franchise with the most games

Technically, it doesn’t qualify for my criteria, because the cupcake version doesn’t have badges and doesn’t seem likely to get them. Although even there, it’s only 7, unless you count the 2 papa louie games, which have a completely different concept

All of which have badges? The best I can come up with is snail bob, currently at 6.

Beating Glitch isn’t that hard once you figure it out. I mean, the strategy basically boils down to:
1. Equip your non-Natz characters (I used Matt and Anna, but it really does not matter at all) with non-elemental weapons.
2. Make sure you have 10-20 coffees to free Natz up from reviving.
3. Spam Star Showers, they kill the sidekicks instantly so you only have to Rez one person a turn, and it will also damage the center guy.

And step 1 can pass in a pinch, although it makes it easier. It’s literally that simple, since all of the attacks auto-kill exactly one player and ignore death resistance.

Seriously, though, it took me like, 5 minutes to figure out, tops. I don’t think the game needs a hard badge beyond game completion, since godcat actually is a pretty decent challenge.

Beating the Glitch as a hard badge isn’t so much about difficulty as it is about game length. EBF4 is a long game, long enough that two hards are warranted. Beating the Glitch works as a good second hard because it is sufficiently far into the game to sync with hard badge length expectations, is optional (and thus won’t be auto-earned in conjunction with game completion), and requires at least some strategy, even if that strategy is pretty basic.

True, EBF4 took the longest of any flash RPG I’ve played except Mardek 3 (although there’s no comparison there, my “first time out explore everything” run of EBF took less time than my speedrun of Mardek). I just wish there was a tougher target for it besides Gotcat – like the secret boss in EBF3 apparently was (although I’m mostly going on word of mouth on this one, since I could never get a high enough score on the last minigame to get all 60 medals needed to access it.

I sort of want the beat the game badge for EBF4 to be “Better than the Sun King”, but I’m not sure if that’s too much of a spoiler. (Alternatively, one of the inevitable Cat God versus Sun King 2 badges could be “Egyptian Battle Fantasy”.)

I did find it kinda amusing that two of the three “hot new games” are about cat gods.

Topic: General Gaming / Epic Battle Fantasy 4 discussion thread

Are people giving Barrier to Anna or Natz? I gave it to Natz because it fit theamaticly, but I’m beginning to think it would have been better to give it to Anna from an action economy standpoint.

having played fancy pants 3 recently really spoiled me. I keep trying to wall / ledge climb.

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

I’m sorta disappointed that there was no badge for fancy pants that included challeges / microtrials… figuring out the microtrials was one of the most fun parts of the game for me. I hope greg and raw are considering a fourth badge.

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

Having played a lot more fancy pants, I’n of two minds as to whether the hard badge needs the stars as a requirement. Yes they’re the hardest thing to find, but they also seem sorta like walkthrough bait. The challenges and especially microtrials require a certain amount of actual skill.

I’m surprised there haven’t been any suggestions for Fancy Pants 3 yet… I haven’t had time to get very far into it so far.

I’m really hoping that the Caesary badges get moved to Senatry.

But Senatry is a completely new and original… snrk BWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I’m sorry, I couldn’t get through that with a straight face.

To be fair, it’s not like Caesary wasn’t a blatant ripoff of other games as well.

And the only thing that’s hard about the losing my religion badge is playing the same shitty game 6 times in a row.

I made a complete walkthrough of the game. Throughout my playing of each level, I not once experienced lag or connection issues.

I can’t connect to that game like 90% of the time.

I’m sorta surprised your best is only one place better than my best. Although that was pretty unusual circumstances.
