"The Golden Age - Return the Golden land to its former glory"... anyone wanna explain to me what EXACTLY that means? Cause I'd hate to be suprised towards the end of the game finding out I missed one cause of a "Vauge Achievement Title". Thanks.
20 Sep 22:30 2020
Uh, isn't it just a pretty way of saying "Finish the game"?
21 Sep 0:26 2020
Oh my, really? Well that's neat.. wasn't sure if it was something cryptic like "Make Marins Dreams come true" in Links Awakening. How was I supposed to know that means Absolutely NO deaths lololol. Had to restart my whole 75% of the way deep
21 Sep 0:29 2020
Whole *game*.(typo)... not that no deaths is hard.. easy actually BUT I gotta know what the challenge IS so I make sure I watch out to make sure I accomplish it. Otherwise I might miss it.

21 Sep 7:26 2020
Don't use that description space to explain what to do. Anyhow, I'm happy with just having achievements to gun for regardless, just lil petevees lol. Thanx for the heads up tho
21 Sep 7:29 2020
My main point was.. is there anything I should know about now lol? Cus this all seems pretty straight forward except for the golden age one, plus I don't see any missables either.
21 Sep 9:28 2020
The only missables as of right now are the "Bested x boss".
23 Sep 0:41 2020
Oh damn it.. I got the Magic Cape today not knowing the system was down.. this type of stuff always happens to me.. greaaaaat.
