So apparently the Barbosa fight in Kingdom Hearts II requires Jack to be alive for the duration. If his health drops to 0 then it's to the continue screen with you. And uhh, I'm playing Critical Mode. Party members dying is just par for the course. Needless to say that fight took a long time.
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's Master Sword trials are really uhh.... challenging, to state the obvious. :c i knew they were going in, but it really does take a lot more wit and cunning than i thought! i keep getting defeated in the beginning in the mid trials. ;_;
