And that's this version done and dusted. Next up will be the inevitable FEW Legends that'll include all of the above in the base product, with a second set of DLC to add even more characters and maps.

But what about slipping on rocks when it rains?

While waiting for SMTV and on an Atlus hype after finishing Persona 5 I was eager to give Nocturne a third chance to try and play it without being beaten to a pulp.
I liked it so much I wrote a review for my blog and I'd like to share here with whoever is interested: My Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne Review.

I realize this thread is to talk about SMTV but the general SMT thread was long dead and I also though this might spark some conversation.

I haven't been journal-ing in for a moment on account of **life**

However I must do my civic duty as a member of the community, a ninja and a gamer to report:

BREATH OF THE WILD: Finished this up and I gotta say I am thrilled I lived long enough to experience the evolution of a franchise to this degree of excellence. I guess folks were not lying when they said "Ittttzzz da BEST EVAAAA!!!!!" because it truly was fantastic.

I haven't a bad word to say about the title even if ya squeezed me for one.

Oh except for the amount of travel time that is actually spent climbing things too slowly. So maybe ONE complaint.

That is all. Carry on!

I have good news and bad news. 

The bad news is that there won't be a Music of the Year feature this time. 

The good news is that there's something even bigger cooking, so keep it tuned here for that feature.  And that's all I can say for now.

Snow day responses:

First snow day:  Yaaaaay!  Snow Day!!!!!!!

Second snow day:  Cool, a snow day!

Third snow day: Oh another snow day?  *shrug* Okay...

Fourth snow day:  No!!!!!  Not another snow day!  I am so *&^%$#@!* over this winter!!!

Seriously, March has been miserable March.  I don't care if today is the first day of spring, I'm not calling it spring until it's sunny enough for me to play outside.  It doesn't help that my March Madness men's bracket was straight up torched.  However, my women's bracket is still doing alright.

Nevermind The Tick, another Spoon means that Feh's 2nd caik is twice as doomed as the first (and that Alfonse really is a massive jerk for getting his hands on another one of these so spoon). I guess this also means that Ilyana will be showing up sooner rather than later.

Well, apparently 330 of those posts are General Games, so I guess even if you're generous and slash that in half that means I've probably posted over 100 times in this thread.

Anyway, glad they're continuing to branch out in terms of who they're choosing for their seasonals, but this one might be the one I'm least interested in yet, character-wise anyway. They continue to add stupidly good skills onto limited units, and I hate that the weapons are still ones which should really be in the regular pool (Killing Dagger, to a lesser extent Kitty Paddle, and now Wo Axe and Wo Knife). I still think the Chill skills are a dumb idea, but there's no stopping them now. I guess I'll probably take colorless on my free pull for that fraction of a chance at Live for Honor. Plus I have no ranged flier and I guess the first flying dagger is their answer to last year's first flying tome. Not quite as interested in Kagero's difficulty in performing her ninja parkouring considering how those tumors she has would probably snap her spine and then get in the way as she's handling those poison darts during an assassination job or whatever.

You complain about her milk cans, but I still think she's the best Senran Kagura (even if she was getting herself captured more often than not in Fates). Besides, complain all you want about Kagero's improbable Ninja Skillz, but Lyn's been getting ridiculous up there as well and "She's a hurricane!"  (and then there's Cipher which is giving us 'Goddess of Thunder Thighs' Ishtar among other wtc character redesigns). House of Flying Daggers aside, what is annoying is the lack of a Kinshi Knight despite having a perfect opportunity with Takomi during the New Year's Event. Also annoyed by the lack of Seasonal repeat opportunities outside of Legendary Banners (although last year's Spring Festival crowd are fairly powercrept on by at this point).

Blah, more eggs.. However, Catria looks like a good unit, Kagero has an unique movetype-weapon combo, Sharena exists and Alfonse has some real meme potential, so I'm going to try to get atleast one of them.

Preferably Alfonse, because he makes me laugh.

Xander: Our weapons are!
Reinhardt: Magic!
Camus: Loyalty!
Alfonse: SPOON!

Seriously, it might tick me off if I don't get him.

Trails of Cold Steel

I wonder if my wife will be opposed to me marrying this game?

I've explored the schoolhouse down to the 5th level and fought the Freeze You Constantly Dragon.  Gave me my first party wipe.  Went back in and changed nothing but my strategy and won with only the loss of Gaius.  Poor Gaius, I was really enjoying having him as my #1.  With his 4 ARCUS lines he was incredibly effective at putting all kinds of fun status effects on enemies.  But to the bench he goes, leaving Alisa as my new #1.  I've changed Gaius' master quartz from Falco to Raven to give him more speed and really focus on getting those debuffs out quickly.  However, that will definitely impact his Evasion.  I honestly haven't been using Insight the way I probably should.  Heck, even the Freeze You Constantly Dragon was wasting turn after turn going after Gaius on my second attempt, and I wasn't even thinking about the EVA boost Insight gives as being the reason Gaius was dodging so well.  I'm bad at this game.

My current Alisa build is ATS/HP based.  I'm wondering if I should try to make her more of a healer, though?  She's still using her Angel MQ, which is why I am focusing on her HP.  But for healing she only has Teara and Thelas, for now.  Wondering if I should try giving her Holy Breath or something to go with it.  She has plenty of great offensive Arts, though.  With her Red/Red/Gold quartz requirements it makes diversifying her a bit difficult.  Any advice?

Also, I've got two new characters:
Spoiler: show
Crow and Millium

For the guy, complete with his default MQ, I'm going for a SPD/ATK build.  For the girl, with her default MQ, I went all DEF, which just felt obvious.  Wondering if I should take a different approach to either of these?  Any suggestions are appreciated!

Whoops, I forgot, I had burgeoning Rean Waifu thoughts...
Spoiler: show
So it's really weird how Rean is openly attracted to other female students, but not the ones from Class VII.  Alisa seems like his canon (future) GF, as she clearly has the hots for him.  Other Class VII girls will have their hearts flutter if he does something heroic/kind.  But Rean doesn't say or think anything (iirc) up to my point in the game that suggests he's at all romantically affected by them.  However, even without doing any of her bonding events, Rean has expressed (in thought) an attraction toward Towa at least once, maybe more, just in the course of missions/events.  I finally did do a bonding event with her and it was oddly romantic, whereas my bonding events with Alisa have not really been.  In addition, I did a "hidden" quest this morning that resulted in Rean walking the lovely and pious Rosine back to church in the rain, sharing an umbrella.  During that sequence, he thought about how cute and attractive she was, multiple times.  This strikes me as odd.  Since a small mechanic of the game is the cringey Waifu Simulation, I really would have expected Rean to be constantly waffling between his classmates, but instead his interest seems directed anywhere but.

Am I imagining this?  Or are the writers doing this on purpose to avoid giving any early impression of where Rean's "canon" interests lie?
