Also I steamrolled the new BHB with Team Nino, and proceeded to get two boards with no greens which yielded a 4* Gwendolyn and 4* Tailtiu. Nice to get :D lady so soon after she got demoted, at least.

I used Soren because I could. Took some thinking to get his speed up to 45 so he could double Takumi (didn't have a spare Subaki I was willing to sacrifice for this), but I managed and he took out both Takumi and that cavalry mage during the enemy phase. Linde cleaned up most of the other units, while Olivia danced and blocked the green horse unit. BIke was there to support his boyfriend and reposition people to safety.

Then I got a -spd, +res Halloween Jakob. I'm a little sad it wasn't Sakura, but atleast it's a good Jakob.

Now I'm not sure if I should continue pulling while the Halloween banner is still up and aim for a Nowi and Henry, or start saving up for the 8% banner.

I'll probably do full 5-orb rolls for the upcoming 8% banner despite owning a lot of the units, including all the Red ones due to the Ayra I just got. Aside from the chance at a better IV for any units I already own (well, not Celica, I have -HP +SPD on her), they have some nice skills to pass around anyway and merging is always an option.

Been leveling Ayra and goddamn is she strong, even with mediocre IVs. I mean, ultimately she's still a Red Infantry with all the typical weaknesses of one, especially with that laughable RES stat, but it's still dumb how good she is, especially with her busted weapon. She invalidates the majority of Red infantry barring the ones with a Falchion or a DC Sword. Allowing the killing edge scrubs to upgrade their weapon seems like even more of a pittance when it's going to cost you a bunch of the new currency to do so.

I was looking at some more gameplay video's and half the damn screen is just riddled with bars, words, icons and numbers. Not to mention the constant audio overlap from party members chanting something literally every second.

Just got my Switch today before the holiday scarcity ensues. Cant wait.

I just read on Wikipedia (cuz I always Wikipedia shit) that Heihachi was actually supposed to be Cloud Strife, but the deal fell through at the last minute. That would have been much cooler ...depending on how much emo one can handle.

Goddammit Squeenix, that would've made a huge difference back then (no matter how much of a Nightmare/Siegfried clone he probably would've been). The FF series was a peak popularity back in 2003 and Cloud would've easily dominated the competition (and made the constant Link vs. Cloud debates from that era even worse (and the inevitable L-Block upset all the sillier (and the final 'Settle it in Smash('s DLC)' even more hype))).

Still, Link was easily the most popular South California guest due to being at his peak popularity and being all about weapons and tools (seriously, bringing a bow/bomb/boomerang/hookshot to a knife/sword/whatever fight; his bullshit was much cooler than Yoda's stubbiness or Dork Apprentice' Force powers meter management), Heihachi bringing no real weapon to a weapon-based fighter (and not being interesting enough to make his bringing of his fists to a knife/sword/whatever fight as badass as it sounds on paper), and Spawn being locked to the XBLOCK (and being a Comic Fanservice character in a Videogame Fanservice role).

Edit: I forgot about Necrid being Teh Apprentice of SCII. Namely because he was king of low effort in that game (no weapon model, and was basically Killer Croc with a Glowy Chest Rock). He's also why Spawn wasn't nearly as great as he could've been (because they were both McFarlane character designs, so you got Chinese Knockoff, Low-effort Spawn (Cape sold separately), no matter which version you got).

Spent the last 2 days (and last several weekends getting ready to) moving my mother from her house into a 'old people who will die soon-ish' place.
I'm dead in every possible way.

The last couple of weeks, there was tons of shit to do for her.
Good news is that most of it is done and I should have somewhat of a break.
Although I'm the one who has to change all her addresses everywhere which I foresee being a problem with places because of their security measures.
Government sounds like it will be a major pain in the ass in this case (usually it's stupidly easy though)

Right now, my priority for the Legendary banner is everything but colorless, because I already have all of those (although a Bridelia with a trait that isn't -Spd would be nice (as long as it also isn't -Atk instead), but my Bowling Orange Fluffy Sheep are both Neutral which is perfectly serviceable to me), and because I literally do not have anyone else on that list right now. Also they confirmed that it is indeed Ike, not Bike.

Specific priorities for colors are Blue, Green and Red:
Blue: Having both a Neutral and Trait having Fjorm could be interesting to throw at the arena or quests that specifically request her, while Bunny Xander has regained a new lease on life due to Badges becoming relevant again. Caeda's there, but she's a second Event exclusive unit so gunning for her and Bunny Xander is still a pretty solid option for me.
Green: I have Nowitch so S.Camilla isn't as useful or relevant to me anymore, but for completion sake, I wouldn't mind fishing for her (not whaling though). And likewise, I have Sonya and Cecilia so Deirdre isn't a priority right now, while Hector would be nice, even if he's getting long in the tooth (and the Forge update didn't do him any favors).
Red: I'm patient and there'll be plenty of banner for them to pity break my heart on. All three would be really good prizes either way though (especially best waifu, Ayra).


That said, as soon as I posted it this morning and walked back to bed, it occurred to me that the discrepancy in regards to my Mia's traits was due to me forgetting to factor her weapon's other built in bonus. In short, she's +Res/-Atk (not hot, but at least a sizable portion of her build is around buffing her DPA, so having naturally low Atk for her isn't the dealbreaker that other units tend to suffer from (yet); at least it patches her biggest weakpoint in Res so she can occasionally take a hit from Magic and not die).

Also, just want to comment on her design as her outfit looks more like a cross between her PoR and RD outfits (and something else altogether; although this is definitely more dominantly PoR than either of the others).


And yeah, I was wrong about them not doing anything for Dragonstones. They just got lost in the sea of crappier weapons gaining a second life.


Edit: There was a BHeB here, its gone now. Cancel Affinity and jacked stats won't save you now Takumi.

I'm a few hours into Dragon Age: Inquisition and have had fun just dicking around. I'll be on vacation from tomorrow until Tuesday, and I'll have Tokyo Xanadu on my Vita, which I've already logged plenty of time into, and Metroid: Samus Returns, which I haven't started yet, to keep me busy.

Somehow, I actually find Spawn far less interesting than Heihachi, but having a guest fighter from your own other fighting game was inexcusable.

Them there are fighting words :P  Spawn's cape alone is more interesting then borachi

Well... as a guest fighter in SC, maybe.  But as a character from a piece of fiction, Heihachi is at least pretty different and unique for his medium (but, of course, still cheesy as heck).  While Spawn is essentially an anthropomorphization of cringey 90s teenage edgelord neckbeard comic book nonsense.

Ok, maybe those are fighting woords.

The original premise of Spawn was good.  The series derailed once  McFarlane couldn't figure out what he wanted to do with the character and then it became a train wreck.
