Watched episode 1 of Inhumans. I don't think I would say it was "bad," but it was underwhelming? Although I might be trying to give it too much credit? It fails at making me feel like the villain was a threat because his plan only succeeds because Crystal is a moron and forceful evacuates two of the best fighters (one of which was about to kill the main villain) against their will. Had she not gotten involved the coup probably would have been taken care of.

So I started Chaos;Child today...oh wow that opening scene was uncomfortable. >.>


I'm going to start .hack which is something I can play for an couple hours after work at a time. I always have to marathon Trails games. Zodiac age will probably be a summer game.
Yay! Speaking of .hack, only two weeks left!

Same. Melee in particular keeps tripping me up, and there are a few characters (Ground Gundam especially) where the dash moves seem unnecessarily tricky. It doesn't help that the tutorial is literally useless. Just drops you into the game, and you can't progress until you win., Teaching new players? What's that?!

Honestly, if I hadn't watched 2+ hours of it streamed before playing, I'm not sure I'd have even the slightest idea what I'm doing. And that was purely a coincidence that I stumbled upon that. Also, why are there no Suits from 0080, even as DLC? Or SEED Destiny? Not that I'd be too enthusiastic to play them, but you'd think they'd at least include the Destiny Gundam and any of the Red units (none of Athrun's suits even make an appearance!). I'd have to check Extreme VS againb, but I have a feeling that I should've waited on this one, at least as far as seeing my personal faves in action.

Oh yeah, and no mid-combat Subtitles? I know some people find that distracting, but I'd really love to know what they're saying without having to learn an entire language....
I freaking love Ground Gundam. It is one of my better ones for...some reason. The suits I consider myself decent with are Ground Gundam, the Ez-8, and the Delta-Plus. I think I'm alright with the Zeta as well. I also have had way too much success with the Guncannon considering it is the Guncannon. I've mostly been playing casual matches with my suit set to random. I've played as everything at this point. Still have no idea how to play as a few of them like the Qubeley.

And yeah they have got some weird omissions like the Athrun suits. One that annoys me the most is 00 Raiser. I have to admit, I don't mind the lack of 0080 as the Alex does not instill me with excitement.

Been playing Gundam Versus. I'm enjoying myself, but I'm honestly not that good. XP Mostly just passing time at this point while I wait for Chaos;Child to show up. I though it was supposed to come today, but apparently I was misreading the Fedex tracking, so it might not make it till Monday.

pre-ordered .hack. Currently debating what game to start next: FF12, restart FF15, .hack, Trails 2, or metroid 2 DS. It will probably be .hack which I was thinking of saving until college football season ended however I'll have XBC 2, Ni No Kuni and maybe a Cold Steel game for that.
I vote go for .hack! Trails 2 is probably a close second, but while I love Trails, I love .hack even more!

Definitely a dick move on IS's part. Introducing a really popular powercreeped new hero on a banner mixed with old heroes, one of whom can pity break her, a week after another banner she would've fit just fine on (all the while another limited-time banner with 4 really good dancers is running too). Personally I'd discourage rewarding such a dick move with more of your money, but whales gonna whale I guess. For my part I would've aimed for Sigurd over Ayra if they were on the same banner so I guess that's good for me?
Let's be honest here, had they done a banner with both Ayra and Sigurd on it, I would have whaled until one of them was +10. Splitting them up at least saves me from that horrible impulse. XD

Oh and my Ayra ended up being +Atk/-HP. Not sure whether that is her best stats or second best after +Spd/-HP. Either way I am content.

I came here to complain about the fact that my attempt to get properly fitting clothes is somehow forcing my posture to correct itself. And while that is something I have been trying to do fro a while, it freaking hurts. What the heck did I just walk into? It has only been 10 hours since I was last here, I am so confused. O.o

Also, coffee sucks.
Well at least there is some sanity in here.

IS is being mean again. Ayra shares a banner with two oldies: Eldigan and Lachesis. So she's probably the fourth and final 5* 1,4x bonus unit.
*looks at Ayra and looks at wallet* Alright IS, you are on. >.>

So, am I the only one who has all 4 of his wisdom teeth still in?
I had all four of mine removed when I was 14 or something like that. Two of them were coming in straight, but they wanted to remove them as well to keep my top and bottom teeth even. While they were at it, they removed four other teeth because I had braces at the time because of overcrowding. Apparently I have a small mouth and thus have 8 less teeth than you?

So I managed to pull all three of the new characters. I ended up with:
Sigurd: +Spd, -Res, Normally this would be acceptable, but I'm not sure if that works with his anti-mage role
Deirdre: +HP, -Res, Really? On a Res tank?
Tailtiu: Neutral

Ayra is a fucking monster and completely blows other speedy swords out of the water, even if she didn't have her unique speed-based special. Arvis is disappointingly not an armored mage as expected since he's his Gen 1 incarnation, but damn that's some really nice art and he basically has Renewal 4 if I'm not mistaken.
Oh Ayra stats came out? Fun let's see what she got. A unique weapon that gives her a speed based Heavy Blade...not exactly what I predicted but close enough. And a unique version of Astra (that will probably be shared with Shannon and her kids whenever they get in). I am glad that they did justice to the Sword Goddess. I'm now curious as to what Balmung will do since it going to have to match Ayra's Blade to prove its worth.

And I think Arvis is something of a combination of his Gen 1 and Gen 2 incarnations as his title is "Emperor of Flame" and he doesn't become emperor till Gen 2 (well the time skip). I strongly suspect we are never going to get armored Arvis :(

No real thoughts on Arden.

Welp, been 2 days since the wisdom teeth removal. Skipped getting knocked out, and only had 2 wisdom teeth to remove anyway, so local anesthesia was fine. Took about am hour and a half from my arrival to get it done, pay the bill, and get out. Hell I walked 4 blocks to meet up with my old man to go home. First day after the anesthesia wore off was the worst, buy it was BARELY what I would call pain. Yesterday I was eating normally (albeit carefully). Today or tomorrow, I'm hitting up wendy's for a baconator...I feel I deserve one!

I also saves upwards of 2,000 dollars based on my initial price estimates since I skipped the sedation amd only had 2 teeth to pull out. Hooray!
So if you only needed two removed...what happened to the other two?

So Dies Irae episode 1...I like it better than episode 0. They hit everything that I think they should have hit from the section they covered. I'm really not sure how parsable it will be for someone who doesn't know the series though. I think it should be, but I'm not really able to separate myself from my knowledge of the VN enough to say for sure.

I suppose I'll just have to wait to see what Kevadu thought.

I'm betting that the rumors thus far are correct and that Arvis will be the GHeB reward (its been awhile since we've had a new one of these), in spite of the fact that Battle of Belhalla would be better as a T_T capstone stage versus a GHeB stage (Genoa would be the better GHeB, especially given the lack of buildup compared to The Battle of Belhalla Quookout which T_T seems to do better; goddamn if they got the track that plays during the Gen 1 Battle Records sequence for that stage, I'd take off Auto-Battle and put the Animations back on). Additionally, I kinda doubt they'd make Arvis a Mage Armor yet due to the fact that he isn't one until Gen 2 (which would make more sense for a potential GHeBtender).
So if this rumor is true, would that make Ayra the Tempest Trial reward then? I guess that is is consistent with some of the earlier Tempest Trials, but I kind of liked facing BK at the end of the last one and also having him as the reward. Although either way it feels weird to hide the most popular FE4 female behind limited time events. You would think they would try to nickle and dime the FE4 fans as much as they do everyone else.

Also I feel like they might give Arvis his Gen 2 class because I view it as his more icon class, it is a fairly unique class (I think FE4 and maybe FE5 are the only games with mage armors? and the others that I recall are less iconic enemies unlikely to get units for a LONG time), and I don't know if they would really want to make two versions of a villain from a single game when so far the only characters with multiple versions are because of seasonal events (or CYOL).

Also, it occurs to me that the next T_T will probably have Eldigan as the fourth 1.4xer over Seliph because of course I don't have him (and would once again lock the 1.4x multiplier to those lucky enough to pull from the banner successfully or got that one Rare unit; plus it means that Julia, the T_T unit and Seliph and Lachesis would be the only available 1.2xes).
If the Tempest Trial focuses on Gen 1, then yeah Eldigan would be more likely for 1.4xer over Seliph (with potentially a future Tempest Trial for Gen 2). Although I would not rule out the possibility of Lachesis as the fourth 1.4 multiplier since she is a Gen 1 character and is a party member unlike her brother.

Also also, belated, but I too am surprised that Tailtiu was chosen over Quan, Lewyn, Lex, Azelle, Brigid, Ethlyn or Arden. Although, I suppose that Tailtiu being the third most popular Gen 1 Genealogy female helped a lot (losing to both Ayra and Lachesis who are both in at this point). Plus, she's kind of an odd maid out given that Quan, Ethlyn and a FE4 Finn could get their own Banner as could Lewyn, Erinys and Silvia. Also would like to see Lex, Azelle and Midir get a Banner as well just for the sake of bolstering some of the less well represented Heroes unit types like Axe Cavalry, Red Tome Cavalry and Bow Cavalry.
I was going to question you including Arden in that list, but I just looked it up and he was third in CYOL poll...What? I am so confused by this. O.o

Also Claude should be included in the hypothetical Silvia banner...mostly because I want to see how they would handle a legendary staff.

I really hope Ayra is good since she is my favorite FE4 character. I remember thinking a while back that she could have a spd based version of Ike's Heavy Blade ability to make her an efficient Astra user, although she would probably need some other ability to be relevant. I feel like a Pursuit skill that gives her 4 attacks would probably be the most appropriate to her in game build (since we can't have dodge tanks), but I would not be opposed to some version of Nihil.

Random thought, when we eventually get to the FE4 Gen 1 Tempest Trial, I'm betting we'll get Arvis (so we can finally have our mage armor).

Finally, it seems the rumors were true: Sigurd is here, and holy shit did they make the wait worth it, because is he overpowered as fuck. Even if he ends up with an embarrassingly bad stat spread his unique skills alone will make him worth using. Dierdre comes with an amazing base kit and a beefed up Naga as well. Tune in next Monday to see if my good fortune the last few weeks comes back to bite me on this banner.

The final unit is a surprise addition of Tailtiu. She'll probably be pretty good like most bladetomes (especially considering the one we already have), but her non-unique skills put her as a candidate for downgrade to 4* post-banner. Of her two skills, Drive SPD would be way nicer to have at 4* than ATK/RES+2- which is probably why we'll be getting the latter.

I also spy Ayra on the map at the end of that trailer, so I'm guessing either GHB or perhaps the next Tempest?
*gets his wallet ready* I am so looking forward to wrecking things with Sigurd. Dierdre should be good, and I'm glad that we are getting Tailtiu as she was one of my favorite gen-1 characters.

That's 2. I don't recall 1 having any critical bug.
...okay after looking into this, I was apparently mixing up Kanade and Raki in my memories, which I consider to be totally reasonable as they look fairly similar and both are optional bosses.
