..but...but...I highlighted the title in red.  It's not good for my ego if you all do the exact opposite of my recommendation. :-(


Sorry man, didn't think anyone would even notice my post.

I am waiting for it to be released on either the PS4 or PC.  I won't be buying a Switch just for this game no matter how appealing it is.

It's a Nintendo-published game so you'll be waiting a long time

Cold Steel 2:

- So I did the Valimar battle against a certain Instructor.  And I won!  First try!  Booya!  All thanks to Alisa and her CP generating ability.  Felt dang epic winning that fight.

- Jusis finally bit it in battle for the first time ever, including my CS1 run.  And against a stupid giant Creepy Sheep, no less (by far the cheapest boss fight so far).  What an ignominious way for him to get benched.  I will miss his Noble Command.  But his absence makes room for Emma on my team, who I've equipped very lightly with Scepter MQ and one of the 3 Lost Art quartz I now have.  I could make her more of a cannon, but I kinda want to level up Scepter and see what I can do with it.  I almost lost Alisa in that same fight (perish the thought!) but her 10% evasion happened to save her from almost-certain death.

- I took out that group of worm things that you're supposed to damage one at a time or they'll earthquake you.  I AoE'd them into oblivion anyways and still won.  Ready for Operation: Rescue People You Know From CS1, #2!

I think I need to keep off the Discord and this site until I either get this game or everyone is done with it...  T____T

I have the cash for a Switch right now, but.... oy.

Holmes of Kyoto (12-minute drop):  Antique appraisal has never been so boring.

On a lark I googled all of the Current Season Stuff you listed and this actually looks like something I could maybe watch.  I think I enjoy boring anime, though?

I really hate to say it, but anyone playing Vanilla XII instead of The Zodiac Age is massively wasting their time.

My own journaling: Trails of Cold Steel 2!
Spoiler: show
So these two gigantic military dog things are sent at me by some Provincial Army scumbag holding Elliott's sister hostage.  They proceed to call in SIX little dog friends.  At one point, I fail to rebuild Millium's shield and she gets absolutely plastered by one of them.  Crit health and Faint.  Jusis runs over and wakes her up and she responds to the affront by FLYING INTO OUTER SPACE and blasting everything from orbit with a laser.  On a Crit turn.  Those were some dead monster dog things.

I am seriously loving the way this game is structured.  The way it uses towns and spreads out its rest/bonding days is awesome and a ton of fun.  And the dungeon that led to the boss fight I just described was awesome, too.  A few challenging opponents as well as some fun fodder ones and lots of treasure to discover!  I am so very addicted to this game.

My first post in this thread said "Valkyria Chronicles 4 and it isn't even close", but honestly I'm pretty well decided on focusing on Dragon Quest XI instead.  Not entirely sure what changed my mind, but there you go.

Trails of Cold Steel 2

Not sure what I would have done if someone in the Discord hadn't pointed me toward the FAQ for this that had a bunch of strategies and character build ideas, because some of these request/chest monsters I've gone against were ridiculous and I'm not sure what I would have done without the formations I learned from the FAQ.  Especially the massive ape monster outside Legram.  That thing not only got turns constantly, but could do AoE uber attacks that put Faint on everyone, and also heal itself at a faster rate than I could damage it.  I had to cheap out with Arc Slash/Heavenly Gift spamming, as well as baiting it with Millium.  Took frickin' forever.

Still, everything is still coming along and I'm not feeling too stressed about boss battles or anything.  I adore Trails, but I really do get stressed about its boss battles. 

Currently in Bareahard.  Been busy so I'm not making a lot of progress.

I'd say Octopath too if it wasn't a Switch exclusive.

Amen... T____T

That is adorable, Jimmy.

You still get Underboob Velvet in every skit... :/

This is just Scott's way, Jimmy.  Don't take it personally.

I hope the main female in this one is just completely naked (save for just a cape).

Day 1 purchase for me.

LOL Frosty!  You always put a grin on my face in spite of myself. :P
