I discovered something amazing! Nightmares are a lot less scary when viewed from a third-person perspective. That zombie thought she could sneak up to me, but I could see her without even having to turn around. Shooting a bow this way feels weird, though, so I may have to consider a new weapon... And okay, the new perspective didn't change the fact that the zombie was my sister and I was about to shoot her in the face, so... Yeah.

I've gotten used to the fact that sometimes Nightmares aren't all that bad...

I know what you mean. The ones that are basically just a bunch of monsters aren't so bad. I've acquired so many tricks over the years, fighting back has gotten easier and easier, and sometimes these dreams even turn into something fun. The worst are the nightmares that can't be 'solved' with violence...

Uh, about Hulu...

I'm in Europe, so CR is pretty much the only reliable streaming service when it comes to anime. Viewster has an okay selection but next to no aps.

I wa dreading the confrontation with Stranger of Sword City's boss, but it turned out to be a push-over compared to the bosses in the dungeon. I don't think I was every in any actual danger. The worst part was the healing, but my mage (me) could take that of and more in one turn with some boosted Tri-Bolts.

1. Trails in the Sky SC
2. Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold
3. Legend of Legacy
4. Stella Glow
5. Nights of Azure.
6. We Know the Devil
7. Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright
8. Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest

9. Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation

Finished this one a while ago, but whatever. It's Fire Emblem. I Love Fire Emblem and will always love Fire Emblem. Well, as long as they don't up the waifu/husbando bullshit beyond this point. Actually, they should just tone it done. The baby making thing too. I'm sure there are ways for characters to bond that aren't an insult to good storytelling and common sense.

10. Stranger of Sword City

I wanted to love it more than I did. I like the genre, but I'm getting tired of outdated design choices that solely exist to eat up the player's time. The difficulty spikes didn't help either. Great artstyle and atmosphere, though.

I've bought the first DLC set figuring I might as well, since I've already hit rock-bottom. I have the whole trilogy thingy both digitally and on gamecard (SE), and I'm this || close to looking for some Leokumi fanfiction to see if there's anything good. Some DLC not going to make a difference at this point.

At this point I'm just happy to have an Atelier game every year or so. I love the foundation of the series and am fine with pretty much any variation I've played. Shallie wasn't the first time the timer was benched (the Iris games don't have one either), and I kinda expect it to fade in and out as many of the features do. Personally, I think the timer works best in the shorter games like Atelier Annie, but like I said, I'm fine with whatever.

Stranger of Sword City - Making slow progress through the final dungeon. It'll probably be a few more hours before I can finally finish it. Maybe. I still have that annoying boss in the no-magic area to defeat, as I was severely unlucky the last two attempts. Two characters are still in the hospital, and since a samurai is kinda vital to the strategy I have in mind, I can't do anything other than grind equipment for a while.

Fire Emblem Fates - Played the first bits of DLC. Chrom and co were surprised by my otherwordly tactics. Yes, Chrom, I did send an archer out to block the choke-point. I'm impressed you noticed. He's a dodgetank with like 30 def who's so used to beating himself up over everything, enemy attack look like nothing to him. The only thing lower than his mag stat is his selfesteem. Yes, I'm aware that mag stat is 0. And yes, I totally send out a cute healer girl to one-shot some guys. No, Chrom, I can't explain that str stat. It might be something in the water, I dunno. That frail dancer crit killing everything with a freakin' log? Eh, yeah, it's definitely water-related in her case. Don't worry about it. Oh, and, uh, just thinking of everyone's safety her, but could you get really close to another male character? I kinda forgot to bring some extra sausages, and Nina is better at shooting when thinking about slashing. It's uh, part of our 'make love not war' philosophy. It's really deep stuff. Okay, I think we're done. Everything is nice and dead. Now will you please, please, please promise me to never try any of this during that adventure you're starting as soon as we leave? Thanks.

Speaking of physical fitness, I ended up entertaining the little ones at my dad's birthday and I have to admit I was winded after all those piggyback rides... I used to be better at this...

I still struggle with body dysmorphia, but whatever.  I gotta get stronger, gotta get leaner, gotta get endurance-ier.

For what it's worth, I think you're amazing. I've only seen pictures, but you've changed to much the past decade.

The same goes for Agent D., by the way. Whenever he mentions the weights he's lifted, I try to imagine how much that is. Like, three mes. Or one of those ponies I used to ride when I was little. I can't help but be impressed.

Yeah, and the only reason she manages is because everyone else does the important stuff.

Avatar: *makes a dumb decision, again*
Everyone else: *makes sure it doesn't cause too much damage*
Everyone else: [Avatar] is amazing!

(And the tea thing felt a bit like a personal insult. Making good tea is not hard. You just have to know what you're working with, and after that most of it is measuring - amount, temperature, time - it's simple.)

which meant all the women there ended up in the kitchen.

Isn't that where all women are supposed to be?   :/

Couldn't resist

Moving to the kitchen was a tactical decision, as it gave us access to all edible resources, not to mention to ability to distribute them (or not!). It was our fortress. If you think women deserve a fortress, thank you!

^Because you can't or because you don't want to?

My haps... The magazine manager is trying to organise a gettogether, but I'm not sure if I want to go. I know I should go. I'm 'important' and they want me to prove I'm not a jerk, but I'm no good at this social stuff. The last meet-up I liked was the one where I could hide out in the kitchen and play strategy games with the girlfriend of one of the writers (which meant all the women there ended up in the kitchen. oops.).

Hey that sounds like fun!

Ever since a bunch of my gaming friends moved and stuff I miss being able to do the random things like that.


It was fun. That event was actually a farewell party (the magazine we wrote for went bust and as a goodbye, we threw a small thing for us and loyal readers), but I had a good time (in the kitchen, where human interaction revolved around tea and games).

Actually, that event came up elsewhere just now. Me and another guy both ended up writing for the same website, and he just arranged a review code for me. He was like "One download code for our Queen of Fire Emblem", and I said "There won't be much left of that title once I start playing Atelier Sophie...". Which is the truth, because I'm going to binge play the crap out of it. However... "L. was the one who came up with it." "Wait, what? Is this from the farewell party?" And it was. Turns out she still uses my team to measure the quality of hers. This makes me feel really proud and nostalgic ;_; Maybe we'll be able to have an online versus match in Fates soon. That'd be nice.

Today was a good day.

Well, the eyes do like they're 'down there' instead of 'up here'.
