Been a while since my last post, let's see what there is to say about recent events...
- Went to an Escape Room with some coworkers, including the managers. That was fun. We failed though DX
One puzzle that really blocked us was one where you have to listen to notes on a phone, then try to match them with notes on a mini piano with letters on the keys to get a code. There was too much talking going on, so we could only get the first note. Did well otherwise, I think.
- Went to see The Last Jedi with my brother the other day. There's a lot more humour in this new trilogy than the others. I liked the movie, but I can understand why some diehard fans didn't. Blame Disney. I'm not a huge Star Wars fan, but even I feel like they don't really understand the series and are just making movies simply because they have the IP. Well, whatever. Like I said, I enjoyed the movie for what it was. Plus porgs are FUCKING ADORABLE.
- Barely did anything for the Christmas FGO event. People said that if there was a time to use your apples for more AP to grind, that was it. There was a lot of exp, mana prisms, skill gems, and QP to be gained from the lottery, but I only did enough to clear the lotto the first six times for all of the Santa Alter tickets and the Crystallized Lore. I was feeling way too burnt out after the last back to back events to do more.
Now London is out and I've barely begun. Might spend some time on it today.
- The new Christmas banner in FEH is up, and I got Tharja in a Christmas bikini! Pretty good IV, too. So now I can form a team solely of units in bikinis, ohoho. Summer Tiki, Robin, and Corrin, plus Winter Tharja. Not a bad team composition either, all things considered.
But then today I got paid and my brother gave me his half of next month's rent last night, so I spent a bit to get more orbs. First unit I summoned when I got home was Tana! Great IV, too. But ohhhh man, her voice is beautiful. It's Purple Heart's voice from Neptunia, and I love it. Tana was one of my favourite characters in Sacred Stones, so I'm very happy to hear her with such a magnificent voice as well.
I then went on to summon Christmas Robin, Chrom, and Lissa! So I have the whole set of seasonal units, which is a first for me. Sadly, their IVs are much worse than Tharja's was for me, and Chrom has his absolute worst possible stat spread. Still, I love the art on all four of them, so I of course plan to use them. They all look amazing in Christmas outfits, hnnng! And their voice lines are great, too. Chrom's reluctant as hell, Lissa loves the holiday, Robin's also really happy, and Tharja's...Tharja. She sounds rather bored or confused normally, but then her attack quotes veer into hard yandere territory. Very entertaining, all four of them. I ran into some off-banner 5* units as well while pulling for them, and they were pretty bad. Catria (underwhelming), Camilla (underwhelming), and Gray (great skills, poor IV). Sigh. I'll probably throw the orbs I get from the upcoming Tempest Trials at the banner too in hopes of fixing my Chrom and Robin's IVs, even though I should save for the next important banner. Hopefully I can keep myself from spending too much.
- The Monster Hunter World beta should be up again this weekend! I barely got to play last time, so I'm looking forward to it. I just got into the training area and tried out my two main weapons, and using a PS4 controller is much different than a 3DS. Gonna take some getting used to the controls, plus there's a lot more movement options now and even some new attacks on the weapons. Can hardly wait to get started practicing.
