I saw pumpkin spice kruidnoten earlier this week. It makes no sense. Speculaaskruiden, the stuff that gives kruidnoten its typical flavour, it pretty much pumpkin spice. The main difference is that pumpkin spice has allspice in it while speculaaskruiden are made using white pepper. So... why?

Oh, yeah, because we're being brainwashed by American TV. Nevermind.

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.

1,2x will most likely be Eldigan, Lachesis, Arvis and the T_T reward Arden.


But hey, you know how people sometimes say Arya instead of Ayra? Well, I got a 5* Tharja as free summon... Close enough....? Oh, and to add to the disappointment: she's -spd, +hp. She'll be fed to the next red mage that is either on a (flying) horse or has something like 35+ spd.

Oh, and my strategy for Arvis was: Klein, two of his wifes and Reinhardt do what they're good at. Klein and his harem would have been able to handle it on their own, but that would have taken longer. Would have been funny though. "Now, my turn." x4. ... And now I'm sad archers can't use Galeforce. That would have been hilarious.

And you're looking great!

I haven't had any luck with pulls, but I did manage to finally beat the two toughest chain challenges. Ended up promoting Eirika to 5* and giving her Rally Def/Res to give Blarblade Linde enough fire power to deal with certain units. So now I have a 5* Eirika and she and Linde are totally in love.

Also completed the new maps and quests, so the game is a little low on content for me now. Until the next big thing, I'll alternate between hard mode chain challenges (yay, feathers!) and trainign characters using the Warriors maps. Man, I'm going to miss those maps when they're gone...

How to train your dance-less dancer:

Please, do everything you can to not become a bumbling dad!

Apparently, some people get different amounts of wisdom teeth. My brother in law never got any. Lucky bastard. I had my fantastic four taken out at one time, so they knocked me out for it.

Yep. There's no guarantee your wisdom teeth will actually pop up. In my case it was like:

Age 18: Looks like's there is nothing there. They might emerge, but it's starting to become unlikely.

Age 21: No activity, but we'll keep an eye on it. Looks like you're pretty lucky!

Age 25: You have nothing worry about. The chance of wisdom teeth emerging at this age is very, very small.

Age 30: Here's a referal to a dental surgeon.

They figure the other ones will stay where they are, embedded in bone. But hey, life's a lottery!

They look cute and delicious. Is there anyone in particular you made them for or were you in a 'I need to bake, I don't care who eats it' mood?

That was impressive. Ninian not only avenged Lyn, she also won despite not being a Smash or Awakening/Fates character.

T_T: My guess is that the Black Knight was one of those rare bones Intelligent Systems throws F2P players once in a blue moon, like Camus and Xander. There's no rhyme or reason to the bonus units other than newest first. Look at the first Echoes T_T, for instance, Boey and Mae were 1.4x characters despite this being an Alm versus Celica kind of thing.

Also, the real award of Die on the Battlefield was never that Masked Marth, it was all those easy to get orb you could feed into the the all-star banner that came with it.

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!

If it still hurts, some paracetamol should be enough to take care of that. And I'm jealous, it took me over a week to be able to eat something worthwhile again... I don't know what a baconator is, but I hope you'll enjoy it!

To be fair, the t_t made Eliwood a 1.4x despite him being a common. But maybe that's just a t_t thing...

Holy shit, Sigurd is a wall. I wonder what his stats are. With a skillset like that, something is bound to be terribly low.

However... I'm going to admire him from afar for now and continue to aim for dancer. Got Inigo just now (-def, + res) and at this rate, I should be able to get another one. Hopefully Azura, but really, anything except for another Inigo is fine.


I'm guessing/hoping for a GHB. It suits her best. She was a pain in the ass to recruit in FE4, so she should put up a good fight here as well.

... And then, months later, we get a T_T with new FE4 characters and Fin is a 1,4x unit.

Disgaea is NIS's flagship series so NISA always seems to put a lot more effort into it than they do for their third-party localizations.

Remember Ar Tonelico 2...

Or Atelier Shalie... or Mugen Souls Z...

Well... There's Disgaea D2's fire spell bug. Basically, the first time of using a fire spell gave like a 99% chance of freezing the game. Something about the animations not loading correctly. Took them like a month to patch.

I haven't played every Disgaea game, but the titles I did play had pretty lively localisations. Even is some of the jokes are lame or references outdated, it's obvious someone put effort into those. Ys VIII, by comparison, feels like one of those rushed simulcast anime subs. It sticks uncomfortably close to the Japanese lines and there are just too many mistakes. NISA has definitely delivered better localisations, but it seems like their overal quality is on the decline. I guess we should be glad Ys VIII functions well on a technical level. NISA seems to release a game with a game breaking bug every other year or so...

Why would anyone do that? Bathrooms are a thing. Why do people like that exist? o_o

A little kid having an accident in an unfortunate location is one thing, but how could an adult... Just why?

There were five hours during which Fae did not have a bonus going and she still lost. Good lord... Oh well. Time to destroy some Corrins.

It's a good thing the rewards versus time invested are pretty good or else I wouldn't even bother with this either.

Edit: Oh, Hathen's Black Knight is working out very well! Now if only other people would stop putting dancers/singers as their lead, that'd be great.

Anime News Network is spying on us...

Oh, I get you. If you are going to play around with a squick subject at least have the balls to go through with your squick subject, and show the consequences of such actions.

Exactly! It's such a cowardly thing to do. "Oh we want all the tabooness of the subject, but like, it's not REALLY incest!". It's a having your cake and eating it too situation and I don't like it.

Yes! It's amazing how often shojo and josei manga play the 'but wait! they're not actually related!' card. And sometimes, it just makes things worse... I'm looking at you, Bunny Drop <_<

Basically why I get so many friend requests during the gauntlet: I set Klein as my leader and there are few units he can't destroy by himself. (This could have been you, Takumi, but no, you just won't let yourself be summoned!)

Oh, hey, maybe we could add eachother as friends? My ID is 3472130780. Fae is going to be served up as fried chicken, and I'm going to switch to Ninian after that.
