Pipe burst in our downstairs laundry room, so... fun night >_<

So far Velvet is my favorite character to play as in Leiftrasir. I'm a sucker for mid-range melee fighters, and her movement abilities are really fun to mess around with. She also has my favorite guard animation in the game.

I also want to talk about Odette for a moment, since her VA makes her my favorite character in the game. Easily the only one who does a phenomenal job with the character without simultaneously chewing the scenery. Mercedes is good, too, but then I love everything that VA does even if I can never remember her name.

Odin Sphere

Just finished Oswald's story. I liked how it tied into Gwendolyn's story, but that's about it. Oswald had some neat skills (Draw Ring + Rising Void = wanton destruction), but I was still annoyed playing as him for one very major reason: The game gives him a unique ability to set him apart from other characters (Berserk Mode) and then punishes you for using it. It's very obvious that your battle score plummets while in Berserk Mode, no matter how much of a combo you build. That's a really poor design decision if you ask me.

Anyway, on to Velvet's story in a bit.

Given that the goose and deer populations are rampantly out of control (particularly due to the lack of predators to keep things in checks and balances), I say mass elimination!  For ecology! 

Insects, I'm fine with.  They're a more vital part of the ecosystem than overabundant geese and deer. 

I don't feel guilty about eliminating critters that invade my home.  Out in the natural world, animals eliminate other animals that invade their dens/territories, so I'm within my natural rights.  That being said, I'm usually kind to spiders.  I'll keep those alive and let them go outside, since spiders consume vermin.  In the part of India my mom grew up in, it was considered good luck if a snake hung out in your back yard, because that meant vermin would stay away. 

Eh, some insects are fine indeed. But most are evolutionary redundancies and can stand to be culled a bit.

Save the bees!

Eradicate everything else even remotely vespine!

Just finished Mercedes' book in Odin Sphere. The shump-inspired areas of the last two chapters were a nice touch.

I've also taken note that I've been sort of playing the game wrong since I didn't notice how fast PP usually regenerates.

Syaro figure came in today so there's no longer a blank spot on my shelf! Not as cool as my Black Heart figure, obviously, but still great regardless.

Woo! Didn't even notice, thanks!

Waifu collectors are a PRETTY common type of F2P browser/mobile game.

Hell, I'm pretty into Flower Knight Gril and we all know Kevadu is really into KanColle, two prime examples of the subgenre.

(obvs FKG is more along those lines than KanColle with its NSFW version, in case Kevadu comes and thinks I'm being judgy)

And now you've learned why I don't click YT links

(Seriously, folks, if you're going to link to Youtube, at least provide some kind of summary of the video)

About 75% of the way through Is the Order a Rabbit? and I've been slowing down a bit because its such a pleasant show to unwind to after work and I don't want it to end.

Only other thing that was in my queue was Angel Beats, but CR took it down, I guess, so now I have to go back to figuring out what I'm looking into after this.

One of the rules for that AMA was "No dissenters or SJWs"

Reddit should be burnt to the ground, figuratively of course.

Plain and simple, Trump is an asshole pandering to the asshole vote. And unfortunately, there are an awful lot of assholes.

These are the people who say nonsense like "political correctness is ruining our country," and "Donald Trump isn't afraid to say the things we've been thinking for a long time."

^^^This was meant to be a reply to Dincrest's post which he then moved to Today's News, so blame him for this bit of nonsense^^^

Odin Sphere:

Got through two more chapters in Mercedes' campaign. Getting much better with her since I started abusing the hell out of the evade button, though the Trial Battle in Horn Mountain (Against the two Ice Dens) was incredibly frustrating. She's actually turning into my favorite character with a great story, adorable design, well-written, and some of the most fun skills I've encountered so far.

Yo-Kai Watch

Still in the early parts of the game, but it's already a lot fun outside of the game inheriting Ni no Kuni's frustrating recruitment "process"/rate. You can increase a Yo-Kai's chance to join your party by feeding it its favorite type of food, but knowing what type that is so far is all trial and error and wasted items. Still, I am only falling more in love with the Saturday Morning Cartoon inspired graphics and writing (and even the game itself is sectioned off into subplots that could easily be short little 15-minute half episodes). I'm also really warming up to the battle system which seemed a bit too chaotic for me at first, but is quickly feeling more energetic than confusing.

I am more afraid of the Bern Bros who are going to vote Trump to "stick it" to the Dems that they somehow feel have "wronged" them.
