It feels morally wrong to eat chicken and eggs at the same meal.

Seems like a lamb with it's mother's milk?

Oh, and I beat it. w00t. Now to find the hell level thing and see if I feel like doing it.

Yes. I vaguely remember a Talmudic exception for chicken, but somehow I still can't bring myself to do it. So much for chicken parmagiana.

Hint: Save Curly.

As for kashrut law, eggs actually don't count as meat or dairy, I just meant it seemed similar. Other than that, I don't know about an exception off the top of my head.

Hmm. Don't remember Curly either right now. I think I'll cheat and look at a walkthrough, since I beat it already anyway.

To save you some trouble (and it can be a pain if you do half of it only to find out you've done it wrong):

  • When you're about to fight the Core after the Labyrinth, don't talk to Curly right away! Instead, walk to the right side of the screen (where the as-of-yet-unactivated boss is) and look for a little twinkling spot. This is the Tow Rope. You will need it.
  • Pick up Curly after you defeat the boss.
  • In the Waterway, go to the little room with the bed and rest on it. Talk to Curly, read the book on the bookcase, and then TALK TO CURLY AGAIN THREE TIMES (I always forget to do this). Take her with you--if you leave her there, she will die.
  • When you reach the Plantation, Curly should be on a bed in the lower right corner of the map. Talk to her and do the sidequest. Normally you'd have to scour the entire game to find what she needs, but here it is if you don't want to bother: Look in a previously inaccessible place in the Graveyard.
  • It's not strictly necessary, but things will be a lot easier if you beat the last four bosses without losing health or using missiles.
  • Instead of running off the cliff at the end of the game, enter the save hut. Save and drop through the floor.

    That's all you have to do.

    And oh, if you want to do timed speedruns, you'll have to get the Nikomaru Counter. Its location is fairly obvious, but you need to get there within three hours to get it. Good luck!

    And oh yes, I forgot to mention that you will also need to get the Booster 2.0 (NOT the Booster 0.8). This requires making a tricky jump instead of saving Booster.

    Heh. Thanks. I just got your responses, and I've already done all you said up to restoring her memory and saving the little dude. It's almost 4 am, and I'm visiting the University of Chicago graduate program tomorrow. I should have waited . . .

    spur = death on a stick. :D

    I recently played through it again so I could get the Snake, though. It shoots through walls, so you can cut all kinds of corners if you're going for speed.

    If you want, search for him on Google Video. Funny guy, stand up comedian. Like his act.

    OMG!!! That's exactly how I feel! It's one reason why I never order 親子丼 now after I found out the meaning behind the name...

    Is that why it's called 親子丼? Urg...I'm going to have to think twice before ordering that ever again.

    Yep, I'm pretty sure that's the reason.
