Was going to post this the other night after the post of Pac-Man but ended up playing Everybody’s Golf for the night and forgot all about it…

So the new things added was an Assist Mode and some VTR Encoding options. Assist Mode is nice if you have friends you want to teach the game to but find it hard to verbally explain what to do when playing offline. Assist Mode is only available in Single Player and does not work Online. Basically it works using a second controller and you can put a cursor on the course while the main player is playing the game.

VTR Encoding which in my opinion is totally not worth it unless you have something that really must be shown to everyone. The resolution is quite low but this is mainly because the encoding is done in real time while you watch a VTR replay. It’s quite easy and seamless to set up and upload a video to YouTube, but the quality is poor and low resolution. On top of that they stick a watermark on the video similar to the screenshot ones.

Now about Pac-Man… He’s got pretty cool sounds from his games haha… Interestingly enough he starts with MAX loyalty and his gear set puts you up to 11 Power Shots on 9 Holes. Might be worth buying for Erika and those who have low powers, it’s an ugly ball though and would have been nicer if it was kind of similar to the Smiley/Docomodake Ball designs. I mean why didn’t they just use a standard 2D Pac-Man image instead of the awkward 3D rendered version.

Lobby part costs 300 JPY and pretty much just turns you into a Pac-Man with no other lobby parts available to use. Nothing much to really say about that, also since screen shots of the game contained lobby characters that had names of the English localised characters you can expect Pac-Man to be available on the international server in the near future.

To those who watch the Golf Streams, some streaming equipment is acting up and there will be no golf stream for maybe a week… That doesn’t mean I cannot record for YouTube, they are different parts of equipment in the system. Might be a week of no golf stream… however there is Final Fantasy XIV stream if anyone is interested in watching me explore the world.

So assist mode is basically showing someone where to hit it at? Wouldn’t you still have to explain where to stop the cursors and such?

Assist mode is basically useful if you have a family member or friend who is trying to figure out how to play and need some help to understand how to play.

So it’s useful for someone who has never played or seen golf, or someone who doesn’t understand the basic rules eh?
