Beat Chapter 22 in my Lunatic Run on FE:Awakening. Wound up leaning on Florina instead of Est since Est had just reclassed into a Dark Knight and I had Florina pack a Brave Lance, a Beast Killer, and a Hammer for mopping up the Deadlords. Micaiah also got some rare field time as well thanks to her shiny new Mire tome for long range sniping. Of course she still sucks at using it due to her low level/stats (and the fact that there's almost nothing you can do to improve Mire's performance beyond having higher Magic and Skill). I'm probably going to have to burn a Hammerne staff on it provided that I have one to keep her useful (she had to burn 3 shots on the Helswath dude in order to avoid his Counter skill), and I still wound up accidentally burning a use off of it due to accidentally having Ayra attack with a Silver Sword instead of her Brave Sword. Fortunately, I managed to avoid wasting any other Legendaries by having all my ranged attackers gang up on the Gungnir Paladin, Florina two shot the frail Valflame Valkyrie with her Brave Lance, switching to Seliph to ORKO the Yewfelle Sniper with an Astra proc (not that I needed it), and had a combination of Est and her Superior Sword and Chrom and his Killer Bow plus Aether to take down the Balmug Swordmaster. Tiki wound up taking down one of the other Deadlords for some badly needed experience before I sent her to job Aversa since she really wasn't a threat compared to any of the other enemies in the stage (especially since Chrom could just Nuclear Option her ass into Chapter 25). In the end I reclassed Seliph into a Trickster for Lucky Seven and I managed to get through without any casualties. Next chapter should be entertaining given my complete and utter lack of Avatar use this playthrough (of course, Chrom could just solo Validar anyway given his stats being maxed out aside from Magic and Resistance).
SMTIV: Black Samurai Showdown. Welp. I've caught up to the BS again and wouldn't you know it, now I get to play the alignment game while on a fetch quest for her. What I can't believe is with all this alignment stuff dropping now I'm beginning to wonder just how much I have left in this game? I mean, was half of this game really about trying to get to a fucking bookstore? Oh well, either way I'm probably going to lean towards Chaos until the route confirmation choice since while I like Johnathan better than Walter, I hate that the Law choices still suck in this game (why is Law always such a non-option in these games?). At this point I should probably get the Hunter Tournament Preliminaries out of the way to make sure I don't veer too far into Chaos territory and I think I'm coming up on the point where I'm going to be hitting the route choice soon. About level 48 now. Also had Burroughs randomly warn me about a seriously strong enemy while I was hanging in the park behind Shibuya (I chose to bail thinking it was some kind of boss fight, but I've been all over the area and haven't gotten the prompt again; I suspect it may have been some rare encounter or some other kind of BS at this point). Also also, wound up getting the App DLC during the sale last week (but I sold the App Point items for cash instead to complete the last of the Ginza shopping quests, and to preserve some semblance of challenge as bosses have been rolling over more or less (barring the misfires where I blew it on trying to figure out boss weaknesses and nailed a reflection or drain instead)).
