More Path of Radiance.  A few new pre-promotes joined, but I don't think I need to use any of them.  Geoffery is probably the best of them (Tauroneo, Bastian, Lucia, Geoffery, and Largo).  For awhile I was struggling keeping Reyson alive during the map where Lucia and Bastian join, but then I had an epiphany: skip using Reyson for this chapter.  Worked like a charm.

A pretty interesting Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones character discussion / playthrough recap

I'm a little surprised that Lute didn't work out, because I consider her one of the most RNG-proof characters.  In my two playthroughs she and Ewan were definitely the two best magic users. 

I'm less surprised that you didn't use any of the trainee characters, because, well, Hard Mode.  I think that Amelia and Ewan are two of the best non-Lords in FE8, but I imagine that raising an Est character in a Hard Mode run isn't worth it. 

And I'm jealous of your good Garcia.  In both of my runs Garcia couldn't get Speed or Skill at all.  FE8 isn't the best game for axe users in general - you either need to put hard time into Ross, make Gerik a Hero, use Dozla or Duessel, or promote one of your cavs into a Great Knight.  Sheesh, Gerik might be the best option. 

Anyhow, after reading all that I'm going to go hard back into Fire Emblem.  I took a few days off of Path of Radiance, but I'll crash back into it tonight.  Just recruited Tauroneo and used my Occult scrolls on Ike, Volke, and Oscar.  i.e. my three best units that don't already have a good skill built in (not counting Jill, because Stun doesn't seem very useful at all).  I might even finally try Hector Hard in FE7.  That's less likely, though.  FE7's my favorite, but I don't want it stressing me out.

Unfortunately, I killed Shinon and didn't get the Knight's Ring.  A few crows died and I saved without knowing what's up.  I have an earlier save that's just before chapter 18, and I'm considering redoing it to get Shinon and the ring. 

Volke *just* promoted, and I wish I had known about it beforehand.  He was at level 15 or 16 before promotion; should have gotten him up to 20.  Might try reloading back to ch.18 and using some BEXP on him. 

Mist is up to a B-ranked support with Jill, and I think I'll have it at A rank soon.  I haven't really jumped into chapter 20 yet, but probably will later tonight.  I also haven't recruited Calill yet, but I'll probably use her.  She supports both Nephenee and Tormod, and I use both of them.

FMP? FUMOFFU!: The Sousuke/Kaname comedy hour. Pretty much the highlight of the series right here and vastly superior to FMP S1.
I'm not sure how far into Fumoffu! you are, but look forward to the episode with the rugby team.  Sports is my favorite genre of anime and manga, and that episode had EVERYTHING I WANTED in a wacky anime sports story.

Right before chapter 20 in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.  This is slowly turning into my favorite game in the series.  Keep in mind I've only beaten 4, 6, 7, and 8 before.  4 and 6 were translated ROMs, the other two were English-language GBA carts. 

Promoted Ike is such a boss.  I love how his stance is cooler and more relaxed; way better than his weird one-handed overhead stance from before.  It makes him look like a fuckin' Jedi Knight, and he's still hilariously OP.  My army's MVPs are definitely Astrid and Nephenee, with Jill and Oscar rounding out my four best non-Lords; Aeolus wasn't kidding when he said that the collection of mounted units in this game was awesome.  I'm sorta regretting training Zihark instead of Makalov.  If I ever replay this game (which is a possibility) then I'll definitely give Makalov and Marcia a shot.  Didn't really give them a shot this time around, unfortunately.

Xenogears.  I have a save in the final dungeon (a big, empty black/gray area navigable in your mechs) but gave up.  I sold my discs, too.  Not sure if/when I'll ever get back to it, since I've forgotten most of the game.  Except that the best party is Fei / Citan / [does not matter, because of Fei and Citan].

This week's One Piece manga has one of the greatest Usopp gag faces ever.  Majestic.

Played some Ratchet & Clank HD last night because... why not.  Having some trouble on the branching path area in Orxon; tougher than I remember. 
309  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: May 05, 2014, 06:40:15 AM
Yeah, I'm not sure about Makalov OR Zihark now.  I was using Zihark, but he had two garbage levels in a row (didn't reset, because other characters had great ones) and there are plenty of other good sword options.  I'm probably going to give Astrid and Kieran swords once they promote, as well.  Might give Kieran bows; not sure. 

I'm running and re-running this desert map to try and get all the items and maximize my bonus EXP.  Is it worth it to try and beat the map without killing any of the non-boss Laguz?  If not I'll just make sure to get the boots and Stefan and waste as little time as possible. 

Also, magic users.  Soren is pretty good and Ilyana isn't.  I'm not sure if I should put some BEXP into Tormod once I get him or not, but I do plan to use the prepromote sage that everyone seems to like.  Should I try and use all three of those (future) Sages?  Or just Soren and the prepromoted one?

I love Rudra.  A weird and rare gem that throws a really unique, bizarre, and interesting world.  I feel like they put a TON of ideas and didn't really flesh many of them out --- but I loved it nonetheless.  The spritework was especially fantastic, I actually don't think any SNES-era Squeenix RPG every bothered with the same amount of love.
I would argue that Seiken Densetsu III did, but I'm a fanboy for that game.  Got bias. 

Played some more Fire Emblem today.  Now at chapter 15.  Story is getting pretty good.  Politics aren't quite as black and white as other games in the series that I've played (FE 4, 6, 7, 8).  Nephenee, Astrid, and Oscar have turned AWESOME.  Oscar is only character to have promoted thus far.  A few others at 19 or 20 unpromoted.

Persona 4 The Golden Animation. TV anime, follow-up to Persona 4 The Animation.

That sucks, man.  I've also had some financial difficulties coming at the worst possible time since I'll be out of the country in a few weeks.  Turns out money when you want to do some traveling. 

I accidentally deleted a full blog post again.  This time it was maybe 50% done, so not as bad as that first time, but I know why it happened: the undo command.  Blogger's template only saves two or three operations in its ctrl+Z cache (I think that's how it works?) so if you hit ctrl+Z a fourth time everything is deleted forever.  It saves so quickly after that command that I only had a few seconds to close the window before saving, but didn't figure it out in time.  That's a few hours of my life gone.  Back to the drawing board.

I could be wrong, but I think that was an SMT x FE crossover and not Persona in particular. Could be that there are Persona characters in that game, but this new announcement seems to be Persona-centric.

Wanted to continue playing one of my RPGs du jour (FE9, P2IS), but I wasn't feeling it.  Ended up playing Civilization V for three or four hours.  Whoops.

It's probably just an announcement about which Persona games will be making an appearance at E3.
Nico Nico follows E3 that closely?  My guess is that it's either a big unveiling of P5 or a yet-unannounced Persona game.
