Tales of Vesperia

I found out about guard cancelling and this sure makes things a little safer. Using an arte when you're surrounded will just knock you out of it but at least if I can get an enemy by itself I can just pummel it up against a wall safely.

There was an animated cut scene and I've got new battle music so I must be in the second act. Judith is like Regal Bryant with tits. I tried fighting the Green Giganto monster but it kicked my ass so I'll just do it some other time. I like Fatal Strikes but I can never get them to activate at a good time and I can't just let the boss fall out of hitstun while I wait for the AI to make it appear again. Against normal enemies they're just dead before any symbol can appear. I get the idea behind FS chains but I don't think I have the huge brain or timing to pull it off.

Company of Heroes 2

Got around playing it, love some good classic RTS even with my inexperience with the genre (really only messed with Starcraft and it's not that serious).

Downwell (PC)
This game is best described as a shoot-em-down, where instead of advancing from down to up, you advance from up to down by falling. The player can also shoot beneath them with various power ups. It's also styled after a retro game like the NES, as it has minimal colours, having only black, white and a default red colour. I believe there is no end except for getting the best score possible, as I think the areas will repeat itself after going through 4 themed areas. At least playing a few times will unlock stuff like colour themes and styles, so it's not a futile effort to keep trying.



Splatoon 2
I am currently at S+2 in Clam Blitz after being demoted from S+3, and I recently crossed the OK bar when I am in danger of further demotion. On the other hand, I have reached X rank in Tower Control, which is my second X rank after Splat Zones. The main weapon I used is the Hero Slosher Replica, which I like for this mode because its Sub and Special are conducive for the main modes, as with Thermal Ink which I found most effective here.

Thank you for reading.

Tales of Vesperia

I spent an hour or so running around activating some stuff in this sub-event guide. If it's anything like Abyss you can miss an out of the way completely random event in the first quarter of the game and be locked out of half of the sub-events in the game permanently. It's interesting that the free dlc comes with a bunch of instant level ups and gold. Also it comes with costumes but I kind of like the default costumes for everyone enough already.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

People at work want to play against me but they don't want to do 1v1 against me lol. I don't know if it'll actually happen but I'm fine with goofing around in smash. I just hate playing this game with any noticeable input delay. In hindsight it probably would be easier to reach elite with a character if I didn't change character every match but I have more fun rotating through. Also the colour pick bug is the worst with Corrin, nobody wants to play male corrin.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch)

It's been a little while, but it sure didn't take me long to figure out that I have all Kirby series spirits in the game...except that dang Ultra Sword, which apparently I have to get from Sheldon's place...randomly.  At least on the Spirit Board I could just keep using Shuffle All until I saw the spirit I wanted.  But that's not the case here...

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch)

I completed Dr. Mario's route in Classic Mode and got his Fighter Spirit.  Just after that, I went into Sheldon's place and saw the Ultra Sword spirit.  Finally, at long last, I was able to buy it and finally have all Kirby series spirits!  Time to do the same in Smash Wii U...



Kirby Star Allies (Switch)

I completed the final standard difficulty in The Ultimate Choice, Infernal Crisis, without allies.  I was Kirby with the Cutter ability.  It was a bit of a challenge, but I still barely bested it on my first attempt.  Next up is Soul Melter...*shudders*

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

I swear most Elite smash players use Wolf. Also Link players always have the dumbest rulesets, probably for maximum cheese. I've figured out that I just hate FD. Platforms are just so much more fun to work around, even if there's a good number of people that can abuse me trying to get back down from them, it's way more braindead doing anything on flat rock; the stage.

My fear of losing with Bowser and dropping hard is the secret spice to beating the Wolf gauntlet. I still have no idea what I should be doing with Mewtwo, I win sometimes but when I lose its brutal. What do you even do against mii swordguy.

2 weeks until Etrian nexus I'm excited.

Dark Souls Remastered for the Switch. I'm trying to beat the Asylum Demon, the first bodd. But boy is he hard to beat. I'm having no luck in beating him, I keep dying. The game is notorious for its hard difficulty.

Kirby Star Allies (Switch)

I beat Soul Melter without allies as Kirby, with a lot of help from a certain overpowered ability: Plasma!  Basically, with Plasma, you mash different buttons on the D-Pad to charge an ultra-powerful electric charge shot (with unlimited horizontal range, by the way), and it can even shoot vertically!  Sound too good to be true?  Well, the main drawback to Plasma is that it's rather tricky to use, as since you literally mash different directions on the D-Pad to charge, you can't move freely while charging.  But, as a feature retained from the similar Spark ability in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, you can charge power by shaking the controller and you can still move freely while doing so.  Obviously this doesn't work in the Switch's handheld mode, or if you're using a controller that doesn't support motion controls.  But that aside, the Plasma ability has no significant weaknesses!  You can even use Plugg the helper to have an even easier time, as he can continue to infinitely jump while charging and firing his plasma shot, something that Kirby can't do with his rather limited hover.  Also, if you're not good at shaking controllers quickly, you can mash the D-Pad and shake the controller to charge even faster (although you can't move freely).  So are you still looking to beat Soul Melter?  Say hello to your new friend Plasma!

Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam (3DS)

It's been a couple of years since my last playthrough and I weirdly don't really remember much of it, so I figure now would be a good time for a revisit.

Splatoon 2

I beaten 7 rounds in Tower Control (3 wins/4 losses) so it remains to be seen what my X rank will be. I have also played the Salmon Run session containing Dynamo Roller, Dualie Squelchers, .52 Gal and Classic Squiffer. Unfortunately I am still struggling with Rainmaker while I am finding the best weapon to use (and also because Shellendorf Museum is in the map rotation).



Wario's Woods NES

With usage of Suspend Points, I have gotten to Level 100 in Round Game A, which means I essentially beaten this mode. Sadly, levels past 100 cannot be returned to, as I have learned when I reached Level 105 but lost on purpose. This is unlike the SNES where the game allows you to return to levels past 100. However, I still have Round Game B to beat so I have only reached Level 9, which contains some strange setup for a boss battle. I suspect that there is a second round game because the NES couldn't properly handle the AI of the second player, which the SNES version has (even then the CPU opponents aren't terribly tough). Overall I would say that the SNES is definitively better game because it's more straightforward in gameplay functionality, since I felt Wario's Woods shined as a competitive multiplayer game as much as a single player round game, which the SNES version balances (rather than the NES heavily favouring the single player aspect). Moreover, I felt the SNES has more fluid controls over the NES.

Thank you for reading.

Tales of Vesperia

I don't know how much damage I'm doing but it looks cool when you land a big combo and then go into overlimit to repeat it then finish with a burst arte and a fatal strike. Then you run away because the boss goes into overlimit and you can't do *bleep*. I wonder when Mystic Artes will show up, or the abilities that let you chain artes beyond Base>Arcane. I feel like the ghost ship is new to the ps3 version since without Patty the second party would just be three people and she's not in the original.

I don't know how to use characters that aren't Yuri, how does Raven work. I ended up just using Patty because she only really has one combo to use right now so I can't mess it up.

Dragalia Lost

They did an update but it's still not the co-op hosting change so I've still been neglecting my getherwings. I haven't used them in a week or so, waiting 2-5 minutes to find a host is just a pain in the ass so I'm just waiting for it to change and avoid the problem. I did end up clearing the Master challenge, my attempt at Lv20 was so much better than any attempt I made at Lv28. I'm kind of just letting things auto because I want to play Vesperia and after that it'll be Nexus.

I provoked Solaire and I defeated him. A difficult thing to do if you ask me.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Still mad that I got Smash 4'd on this reverse 3 stock comeback against a teabagging Greninja, I had the zero-to-death and the edgeguard read with a zoom in, then we both made it back and I died in the attack trade. I can only hope that I made him *bleep* his pants when that zoom in happened. When are they adding the '*bleep* you' after battle message, will it come with piranha plant?

Fate/Grand Order

I maxed out a Servant to 10/10/10 for the first time (Mash doesn't count). I will say I rarely got friend requests from Lv130 players before and I've had a few already. The only time before this I got a huge amount of friend requests was the Sanzang event, I was flooded with them because not many people actually had her on their support list. I usually delete people after a few days but I feel like I can't delete Derpies even though it's nearly been a week since his last logon, he was my go-to support for the first two months.

Horizon: Zero Dawn

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

also i really enjoyed the sidequest with the guy who hears voices in his head. you generally dont many if any characters with illnesses such as that which involve said symptons and i like how it was treated as an actual problem the man needed help with and not a joke or something along those lines. also quite intriguing how the guy and his sister's conclusion was that he was hearing the voices of the "forgotten ones" (basically dead people who did worship their god) in order to make sense of what was happening to the poor dude within the bounds of their own knowledge in a version of earth where civilization  has collapsed and people are back to their primitive beginnings
