Started watching a classic anime, Rurouni Kenshin. I really like the cast, setting and most of the battles are fun to watch.

Thanks to that recent Nintendo Direct showing off the Switch port of FFXII, I finally had my reason to pick this up for the PS4 over waiting for the Switch version.

Just got Erik and am now screwing around. As for Draconian Challenges, I've taken them all up except for the not wearing Armor one (because I'm not that much of a masochist).

1) Wild Arms 2
2) Pac Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2
3) Mario Galaxy 2
4) Suikoden 2
5) Ratchet & Clank Future: A Butt Crack in Time
6) Horizon Zero Dawn
7) Lego City: Undercover
8) DoA 5: Last Round

9) Dragon Age: Inquisition - Credits have rolled. Over 80 hours, and there's still lots of things to do (dragon fights; Deep Roads quests; etc.). I'm personally done with the game for now, though. It has taken up enough of my time, and there's lots of other games I want to play.
I enjoyed it. Good western-style RPG. Some areas were a bit too empty, but fast travel and steeds helped with that.

Nice.  Are you playing this on PS 4 Arvis?

Yes, I am. :)
Cool.  I'm playing it on PS 4 as well.  I've spent half my play time just exploring the world and haven't gone too far in the story.  I need to pick up the pace a bit.

Ever Forthright's self-titled album is still my absolute favorite album of this decade, but I only recently spent the 3 bucks on Bandcamp to buy the instrumental version of the album, and it is absolutely mind-melting.  I love Chris Baretto's dynamic vocals with the throaty growls and soaring clean singing, but hearing the songs instrumentally really allowed me to pick out interesting nuances.  I always heard something new whenever I listened to the regular album, but the instrumental version of the album gives me even more cool new things to pick out.

Man, I want to go camping now (in pristine, bugless conditions of course):

Although it seems like Erik is getting sick of it:

Maybe some shopping at a beautiful market will cheer him up:

Adventuring in paradise with my noble steed:

Where the heck did my paradise go?

I don't have Sigrud (or any of the other pullable +_+ bonus units other than Lewyn), so I've been making due with Belica (which is fine since she's so SP hungry on top of needing SI to patch her obvious problems) and Niniair so autobattle is hilariously easy provided Belica's frailness doesn't catch up to her.

As for Book 2's conclusion, did they not even to bother shooting Surtr with the goddamn Ice Beam? Because lol if they didn't since they spent 3/4ths of the goddamn book trying to get that fucking thing into the Summoner's hands, and all we have to show for it now is Fjorm going off to look for a tree atop a hill to quietly gaze upon her last sunset under (and/or an Intermission where Laevatein takes the bullet for her). Meanwhile Hrid's continuing sole accomplishment so far continues to be his swooping in to save everyone from Fjorm's and Gunnthra's desperate Ice Beam plan (aside from Fjorm and Gunnthra). And this continues to be more than what Sharena and Anna got to do combined throughout the book. Bruno outta loving nowhere and Helbindi dying as he lived, almost entirely offscreen (well he's getting us a new Axe Infantry which means yet another brick of high HP/Atk/Def). And Laegjarn got deathflagged so fucking hard that it seeped into that comic I posted above twice.

As for the newest banner, I shamefully spent 52 Orbs pursuing Ophelia and got a Flora with perfect IVs (+Res/-Spd) instead. If there's one good thing to say about Flora is that she has powercreeped the Res stat (38 at neutral) from Wrys', Spoopy Henry's and Winter Tharja's 36 neutral Res. So I've got a dual Ployer that can't be beat (without running headlong into Relay Def inflation).

I've so far managed to clear Relay Defecation Rank 5. But it was so wonderfuck of the devs to charge us Stamina to run this shit, alongside a +_+ (and a Forging Bonds later on as well), so I'm not bashing my head against the mode quite as often as I'd like.

Despite the improvement in the writing department, chapter 2 was indeed yet another disappointment due to the poor pacing, pandering and paper-thin plot. What I did like:
1. Alfonse got to be smart and do stuff! In chapter 2 he went from bland protagonist to an adorkable nerdy young leader who is actually relevant to the plot. It's a shame he's a FEH character, because think about what he could have been in a proper FE game.
2. Helbindi. A bit archetypical, but still a fun character that went right for the feels.
3. Camus with boobs, erh, Laegjarn. She's basically what Camilla should have been, isn't she?

And as for the Nifl siblings, man, those really ended up being boring/annoying/(emotionally) irrelevant. The only good thing about them is that Fjorm is a convenient Arena bonus character.

In other bullshit design news, I haven't cleared the final map of Relay Defense and I'm not sure if I will bother. Fighting a giant flood of units with 90 HP isn't hard, it's just annoying. I actually didn't clear the Legendary Abyssal challenges a few weeks back either, but I bet one of those accessories will get used for bonuses in the next Forging Bonds because why not.

The trick to those Relay Defense maps is to cheese the hell out of it by turning a ranged enemy unit into a blokade so the others can't advance and/or attack.

As for the Abyssal challenges, I actually really enjoyed those. I cleared Grima with a tactics team featuring Linde and Titania, and Reinhardt and Takumi backed up by dancers took care of Marth. I had to switch around some seals and C-skills, but I made it work and I'm proud of that.
