WHat's this asshole's deal, /v/?
Was he controlling the bug monster?
Is he an evil bastard? Or just hungry, greedy, glutton?
Hungry, Greed, and glutton
mother fucker stole all of our food
At the end of Pikmin 2, he's been captured by an enourmous, deadly spider monster, but it's implied afterwards that he's got some bizarre, almost telekinetic influence over bugs.So PERHAPS he was controlling the bug in some way...
The ship even dubs him "The King of Bugs" when you retrieve him. It's quite bizarre, he's never otherwise implied to be hostile towards Olimar, so, who knows..
>steals all my fruit.
>mfw I have to collect new fruit quickly before the day ends.
Louie actually bestows the name upon himself, according to Olimar's journal entry:
>Louie is back! Somehow, he survived a horrific ordeal with a freakishly large, weapon-wielding titan dweevil! I entered a hole with an army of ferocious Pikmin, grimly determined to save Louie from the titan dweevil, but it seems that he was perfectly fine all along. I can't understand how he managed to avoid being eaten. Hmmm... He's always had an unusually close connection with insects, and I know he loves to cook them! Maybe he wasn't kidnapped after all... Could he have been controlling that beast all along?! No... that's craziness! Although... he does insist now that we address him by his 'proper title', the King of Bugs.
>Can't stop playing Fortress of Festivity in Mission Mode so I can top my score
so I want to download the DLC collect treasure maps, but I don't have any more space on my Wii U. I need a usb storage device to remedy this, right? what kind do you guys recommend using? I'm assuming an external hdd, but i don't have one at the moment. can i save it on a smaller unit and then transfer it to a hard drive when I get one?
Took me over ten tries to find the right order to do things in, then ten more to get platinum by doing so. But it's so fucking satisfying.
And I'm sure I could do so much better.
You could use a smaller usb device, but an externals definitely the way to go
>yfw you realise the wii u allows you to use two 2TB external HDDs at once and you will never ever run out of space so long as you don't cheap out
I've got about 12000+ points on it, but I can't get any higher. I don't know what the fuck the top people on the scoreboard are doing to get so many fucking points.
My problem's that I prefer the controls of the gamepad, but probably put myself at a disadvantage by not using the wii remote.
Also sometimes I just scroll the map around and don't do anything for a couple of minutes because I have to make sure I'm doing everything right.

>becomes one with its inhabitants and survives off the abundance of food
>trys to keep it all for himself by sabotaging the efforts of the expedition party
I hope he continues to be evil and gluttonous would love to see a fat Louie constantly put obstacles in your way and disturb the wildlife to attack your pikmin
PICK ONE SHITHEAD YOU CAN'T BE ALL THREE
Thats one of the reasons why I love pikmin 1 because it forced you to constantly think about how to clear the levels fast enough to grab all the spaceship parts before the end of the day
Would love a mix between pikmin 1 and 3's survival aspects
I like mission mode and all, but I don't feel like it should've been Nintendo's top priority to pump out more missions.
I wanted a NSLU style expansion where you explore a changed up PNF-404 with Olimar, Louie, and President.
>implying trivial matters such as the natural order can even so much as slow down the rock
You know what would be a great unlockable mode in pikmin? Sandbox mode, no day timers, no day count, no pressure. You just go in do your thing explore, take the time to actually look around and take in your surroundings and just be comfy playing at your own pace.
We'll never get this mode of course. Pikmin will always be a hectic scramble to finish asap with ridiculously short days. Seriously 20 minute days even in winter in the mountains you get 8 hours between sunrise and sunset.
ya, even something like boosting your juice requirements as you got more crew members would have made it a bit more potent. As it is any competent player can have a comfortable juice buffer for 95% of the game
Indifferent. Dead serious.
He sat untouched on the roster in my game for the longest time until I decided to play Pikmin 2 for the first time in early 2012, and then he ended up becoming my main.
Man, you know what my favorite dungeon is? Submerged Castle. You guys should really go back and play it again. What an amazing part of the game.
Between this artist and that one tumblr nigger who always draws Brittany, I don't know who's worse at drawing captains.
Neither can draw them worth a shit.
Come to think of it, most Pikmin art is shit, and these guys don't do it any justice.
They're all completely amazing games in their own right, but undoubtedly different experiences. Pikmin 1 was about maximizing time and efficiency against resource management. Pikmin 2 brought a focus on strategy and planning with its time-limitless dungeons and cleverly hidden treasures. Pikmin 3 attempts to be an amalgamation of both, but drops crucial features of 1 and 2 and ultimately falls somewhere inbetween.
So there was always bound to be cause for debate between spergs
Well, it doesn't have to be beautiful, just... good enough.
Spooky as shit but you get to torment it afterwards
>Someone had to sit down a not only make this texture, but bump map it as well
If you were a Pikmin, what ability would you have?
The Mamuta replants Pikmin.
The Smoky Progg is said to be an infant Mamuta.
The Smoky Progg uproots Pikmin and instntly kills them, making planted Pikmin the most vulnerable since they can't move.
Don't believe the propaganda.
>entirely level based where you have to make it back to your ship in 20-30 days
>new level each day
>main objective is to find/dig out a cave in each stage to keep you safe at night before night falls
>still have to explore the fields to find caves and do tasks such as build bridges and farm enough Pikmin
>some stages where you can't find a cave and have to go through the night and hide yourself and your Pikmin from giant enemies
What did /v/ think of the new characters in 3?
So what about these fuckers?
I thought Pikmin followed Olimar because he sort of looks like a Pikmin. What does the whistle have to do with it?
Do Pikmin respond to radio waves?
>Phosbat can't swallow captains, only Pikmin
>Charlie gets eaten by it anyway
Naw, man. It's cool. I just wanted to introduce you to my buddy.
This reminds me I need to ask a drawfag to redraw this with Olimar and Louie running away from the Waterwraith.
>100 pink pikmin
>snagret comes out the ground
>it gets fucking annihilated in an instant because the pink pikmin target the head automatically
I'm sure the were several snagrets in the first area you encounter them in Pikmin 1 but were spread far enough so that you didn't fight 2 at once.
The snagret cave in pikmin 2 tho. christ
Playing through the series for the first time and I suck. Mainly at combat but also just task management. How do I git gud? I just started the first game and I finished day 9 and have 10 parts, but I keep losing a lot of Pikmin whenever I fight anything and I never seem to have enough time to be where I need to be and do what I need to do.
Bottles dies in the beginning of the game so Banjo and Kazooie have to resurrect him. When they do, Bottles goes back home only to find his wife doesn't give a fuck about his death and is mad at him because he was late for dinner.
The reason Olimar's wife is a bitch is clearly because she doesn't get enough hot Hocotatian dickings since Olimar's always away for work.
Or she's just a bitch by nature. I don't fucking know.
Yup, they're in very obscure places and most of them can only be seen by using the first-person camera.
I know they tend to be hidden inside tunnels which the camera doesn't normally see
Pikmin 1 had some dark moments
>the first time getting a game over
olimar gets turned into a pikmin
>"My people were borne out of the sea of stars to come down to Hocotate, and when we complete our lives, we return to the great ocean of stars. But since these Pikmin come from the depths of the soil, surely, to the soil they shall return. How very poetic-while it is all alien to me, the basic premise is universally beautiful."
I'm not alone in thinking that this was the coolest Boss Battle, right?
So we all agree Yellow Pikmin are the GOAT
Reds, Flying, and Rocks were barely hanging on
Blues were fucking extinct again.
Purple and White were MIA
Yellows had a colony of like 45 before Charlie lead 15 of them to their deaths.
>not likming Olimar's deep, deep voice
>Thinking I thought it was bad
His voice is the greatest, I loved it.
>boss battle theme of pikmin 3
>has a version when you are wrecking the shit out of the boss
>there is also a version when the boss is wrecking the shit out of you.
This fucking game man.
>theme when you are hitting the boss
>when boss is attacking you.
I love him, /v/.
He may be a bit of a moron at times,
but he's my moron.
>mfw people wanted him cut
>mfw people /expected/ him to be cut
>mfw I forgot that I had no fruit until the last half of the day
>mfw formidable oak
Seriously that was fucking creepy, the logs left by olimar were disturbing, imagine constantly being chased by a monster obsessed with you but doesn't want to kill you
Add the fact that his suit constantly makes him fall unconscious every now and then and that's some deep level of hell crap right there
Did any of you see that speedrun of Pikmin 1 at this year's AGDQ? It's pretty good.
For those that are interested but haven't seen it: http://www.twitch..tv/speeddemosarchivesda/b/541049140?t=1h23m49s

>reveals another Pikmin game is in the works
>"We are sorry but the game is too young to be shown right now"
>"But I can say that caves will be returning to the series"
>"Here is a music sample of one the cave themes, it might sound familiar to the veterans"

>no pikmin game with 30 day limit, with 6 controllable captains and having to manage all 7 types of pikmin
Figure out which order doing things in saves the most time. Make sure you've always got a captain doing a task. The best part is figuring out that you have it, so don't look up videos unless you want to spoil yourself.
The first collect treasure mission is different though where it's pretty much all action.
