    Pika, we've already made Contact, so I should be on your Wifisland.

    Which means we're basically done and don't need to make contact again.

    xxx looks like a little pink bunny who attacked me... and fell to my sword and then gave me a rose. Weird.

    Pikapuff is a big cow that gave me "Blue Eyes Vol. 14"

    Junk has some funky cone on his head and gave me some boxing gloves.


    One question: Why is Wifisland so friggin' confusing? It almost seems like it was going to be a dungeon at one point before that idea was dropped and they through it in there for an online feature.

    I think the game just encourages hardcore specialization. I do fists and cooking and pretty much nothing else, because there is like, no way you can level up anything else to a reasonable level without spending the rest of your life doing so.

    I have noticed that using skills makes a more significant jump in the exp bar than just punching everything into oblivion, but that might be kind of a "duh" observation.

    Someone said before that it's in [spoiler:ea02b81e14]the pyramid you buy the deed to enter.[/spoiler:ea02b81e14]

    I haven't done it myself so I don't know if that's true, but it seems likely. I've looked everywhere else.

    Actually that's the left FOOT. It's funny because I actually ventured into GameFAQs seeking the answer, and I would excitedly click on any topic that had the word "left" in the title, only to be crushed by infinite posts that say "Get the deed!" "HOW I MINE FOR DEED?" "in the desert n00b!" "post deleted by moderator" and so forth.

    I did get the deed though, and it wasn't as bad as I expected. All that gold those bats were dropping turned out to be pretty useful.

    Apparently no one has trouble with finding the left hand (they're all in the main pyramid except for the torso and left foot), and no one has made a list of locations yet, so I'm temporarily screwed.

    Ok, in the pyramid with the locked door, there's a long hallway.

    Behind the final pillar on the right is a secret passage, leading to the item in question.

    And the guy you're supposed to give it to should be bebopping around town after you've entered some of the pyramids. I'm not sure what triggers it.

    I've been playing Contact for the past few days. While it has charm, several flaws rack up against it.

    However, I was still willing to recommend it to my friends, as the charm outweighed the flaws.

    That is, until the Pyramid Boss.

    I have never, EVER before played a game where the boss was designed not to be difficult because they were interesting, but because the controls we so godawfully designed for such a battle.

    They literally designed a boss as counterintuitive to the controls as possible.

    I beat that boss by accident while trying to figure out what the hell was going on.

    Judging from the Pyramid and Ft. Eagle bosses, Grasshopper needs some serious lessons in player guidance.

    Agreed on the Pyramid boss.

    Everyone was going on an on about Ft. Eagle boss, but it was the damn Aegis boss that gave me trouble: I had no idea what was going on the entire time until he just died.
