I'm going to assume the SSS medal requires a lot of grinding?

I don't think so, got it in my 1st play-through without pushing my stats. I recruited 4/5 of the unique characters and I went straight to the king when I had the chance (2nd round of championships). I lost 1 battle throughout the game and I accepted/won every quest in-between battles. I don't really know where I got most of my points, but you definitely don't need to grind your socks off to get SSS.

Had a lot of fun figuring out the secret medals in Shadowgate, it's a fun remake. I still don't know how to get the forever-burn torch, and the 25pt medal seems pretty hard as well. Using Edykel's ''trick'' I figured out it has something to do with being rickrolled, but that didn't really help me. :P

That torch one I need too, as I keep running out of the damn things before I can get far enough into futzing around to find the other secrets. Is it a code? Some object you need to find? If anybody knows, any hints would be greatly appreciated.

It's pretty easy. I got on my first play-through, and that was without beating the king's tournament the first time round.

An easy way of beating the game is to hire two archers at the beginning, then wait till the special character start showing up and search/hiring them. Going after all available missions, leveling up, and buying most of the specials will make it easy to defeat the kings tournament the first time.

Guess I'm doing it wrong then. I'll check it out later, after I'm done playing through the 3d remake of Incubation.

My guess was "get all deaths" but not only does that seem tedious, it doesn't seem like the game would save progress on that across sessions.

Oh well. Time to poke around the game one more time with my torch cheat. This game keeps revealing hilarious stuff everytime I replay it xD

Fun fact: my first death was from hitting the book off the alter. Rofl!

Looks like Lab of the Dead is possibly going to be re-released with a skip button for those who wanted it.

And that is for zombie reactions?

Also, has anyone had trouble with roboblox, in a way that you can't choose which way the blox link to? Especially on the later levels, like level 19, very often I place them in a way that the roboblox could clear half of the field, but instead one or two blox link to a blox outside of the area I want to clear, thus not clearing anything at all.

Incredibly hard game. Not due to anything except you having to clear hundreds of blocks in a pattern that works while it being almost all about random chance.

Thanks for pointing it out! I never knew what kind of medals you could earn in Binding of Isaac, so I missed 2 of them until now. I still have no clue how I can earn the secret medals in The Company of Myself, though :/

Thanks :D Luis is missing from that list though.


See this news post for information on a program that does all kinds of neat things with medal statistics.

Nothing ... ?
Correct.
Medals serve no purpose other than being earned and displayed on your profile.

And is there a ranking on the site for top medal pointer ???

Because i can't find it anywhere

Are the medals glitching for anyone else? You should get medals for completing each challenge level, but I got none. And I got the medal for completing challenge level 5 without taking any damage, while I'm only at challenge level 4. Weird.

I didn't get a medal for completing challenge 1.

That said, how do you beat challenge 2? After I get the key, I can't reach the next platform by jumping. Am I doing it wrong, and you should be able to reach it with a jump?

Some comments/questions about the new medal games:

Melee Man: Medals don't work after level 15, right? I beat a few special levels but I didn't get medals for them, even though I'm 99% sure they are supposed to send.

Blackheist: Secret medal doesn't work. The author has it, so it's easy to figure out what it is, but impossible to get atm.

Roboblox: Yeah it's hard and all, but the first 23 levels are doable. But then there's level 24. It has a small field and requires some blue blocks, but all you seem to get are yellow and red ones. I'm sure if you play it 100+ times you MIGHT get lucky and pass the level. But the amount of luck you need in that level is just way to high, so I quit. Any comments from you guys?

Also, Symphonic TD - Halloween doesn't save when you quit (but a fixed version is going to be available soon). If anyone feels like PM'ing authors 'n stuff, that would be awesome.

Indeed, they don't. I didn't get them in-game either.

Yup

19 is about impossible for me already...

Don't waste too much time. Jump over the first red enemy. Then get the key, but don't defeat the worm. Jump on the platform via that worm. Kill the red enemies by making small jumps and shooting. After that it's just cannonball hopping. Try to do it fast, so you'll keep ahead of the worm train above. I might post a vid soon.
