That's pretty much my completion in the bag right there. Huge thanks to all who helped (both now and then).

Comment by Xpovos at 17:14 on 21 Jun 2017

Congratulations. That's such an awesome feeling when the last big one falls, but you're not actually done yet; it's all homestretch. Almost better than the completion.

Comment by SpeleoFool at 17:21 on 21 Jun 2017

All that's left are my two favorite retro maps and a luck-based achievement that I can easily solo. The two retro easter eggs are no joke, but I've done them before.

Heard this one is Portal-like. Not surprised you snagged this one at that price. I might do the same. :)

I'm digging it so far. Portal meets Qube meets FFX (sphere puzzles in Fayth temples)

And, that was supposed to be 200-plus. The site didn't like my plus sign, apparently.

Comment by Mr Granstaff at 02:17 on 20 Jun 2017

Anyway, games like AoE are just too much of a time sink and there are waaay too many other games I want to sink my teeth into. I don't see how other people do it.
