We don't always like being nonplussed

Mother (Earthbound 0) Flailthrough - Day 20 (in which they take away my beloved Poo.)

Alright, thanks to AngeliqueDaemon and her obsessive power leveling, my party has jumped up... God, I don't know how many levels... and I'm serious, I don't. Go back to my last post for Mother and look at the two pictures that show my levels while in combat. It goes from 28 to 24 for Ness, and even more insane for the rest of them, but the point is that Ness is now level 36, and the others are 34 and 35 respectively. Things are looking good, so I make my way to the cave and what looks like it's going to be a long damn journey.

I take my first tentative steps inside, and run into the first in a long series of fight.

Romancing Saga 2: Agnes Sleeps With The Fishes

When we step into the canoe, we're allowed to move it. Unsurprisingly, there's fish swimming around trying to kill us.

Fish like Neptune, there at the top, f'rinstance. Fritz learns an Unarmed tech called Capoeira Kick, very effective, but Walrus and Amethyst go down. I'm more worried about Agnes than either of them though, as she only has 3 LP left. Think I might swap her for Orion if she goes, though- gotta plan ahead at this point.

Romancing Saga 2: Fritz Survives More Than Two Consecutive Fights!

Sounds and looks like I'll be fighting! I walk south, under a huge building, and I'm asked two questions. I say First Answer to both, and I'm ushered through the door.

It appears to be a one way door. Southward are some windy plains and, as expected a fight!

Romancing Saga 2: Romance(ing Saga) of the Three Kingdoms

So I'm wandering the castle in the hopes of finding out what the hell I've gotten Fritz wound up in. This person says something about this Toma, but that's the only thing of note. Out in town the sad music is still going and everyone who's still around is speaking in ellipses. Nothing else to do here but head for Forfer.

Romancing Saga 2: Multiple Choice in Douglas

Okay, I'll admit it: since the last time I posted, I cheated just a little bit and looked at an FAQ for the parts of Romancing Saga II that I've already cleared. I've learned two important things:

1) Yes, the dungeon under Avalon was where I should've gone with Sleepwalking Gerarl and I would've gotten the Thief class character, who would've gotten me into Fort Pile o' Kanji for free and marked which doors I shouldn't have gone into. As it is, I will now apparently never get the Thief class. ARGH.

2) L lets you run away from fights if your current King is alive. This is going to expand Fritz's life expectancy considerably!

And now, we sail to Douglas:

Romancing Saga 2: Run Away! Run Away! (Part 2)

Or not, for now: a pair of Hellhounds were enough to wipe us out. Since I have the options of sailing to a couple places back in Avalon I think that might be worth checking out. Basically I'm going to bounce around until I find a path that doesn't end in our wholesale slaughter.

Weekend Special - Pokemon Black, Party Planning edition.

Alright, since the review of Mother is going to have to be put on hold, and Pokemon Black is only a little over a week away, I thought it would be time for a little advice when it came to planning your party.

First off is your starter. It doesn't really matter which one you pick, as long as it isn't Wotter. I hate to say it, but you can get a Water type early enough in the game that he's basically useless. Cute, but useless.
