Final Fantasy VI - Day 5 (As We Well Know, Bears Are Soulless Murderers)

Anyway, as expected, I have to fight Bangers... and he has fucking BEARS!

Vargas: so badass, the deadliest creature known to Stephen Colbert TANKS for him.

Romancing Saga 2: A Miner Problem

When we got back to Avalon, we got asked about a 2 Million Crown... something. Last time I got that message, I think the Magic School maybe got built, so I say yes. We've got 5 million, so the country ain't going broke over it.

Romancing Saga 2: Pirates in the Mountains?

Interesting thing going on here in Nuono: when I talk to people they freak out and run. If it was Fritz, I'd just assume they'd heard of him. But Medea, while a great fighter, hasn't kicked any doormen or caused any other strife. I mean, yet.

Pokemon Black: Global Link and Dreamworld Delayed.

The earthquake and resulting energy crisis in Japan have caused the Pokemon Global Link's US opening to be delayed, meaning it won't be available starting March 30th as planned. This means the Dreamworld is also delayed, but I think we can all agree there's things more important than Pokemon, right?

As soon as we hear a new opening date we'll post it, but in the meantime you can check out our guide to the Dreamworld if you want to get an idea of what it'll be like once everything's settled.

Romancing Saga 2: Medea goes to Nuono

We're leveling pretty nicely, and the insta-kill moves are shortening our battles considerably. We do lose a few more LP including Medea's first (Note to self: run from the Snow Wyrm), but Algol's still picking up more techs and levels of Mace Fu. And I run into a disturbing reuse of the hippo sprite:

Yes friends, that really is a guy in a hippo suit.

Romancing Saga 2: Medea Goes to Haria

Small confession: Algol didn't join my party because I wanted him so much as because I was trying to check the spell tutoring list, and it'll apparenly only allow this if the guy you talk to in the Magic Rooms is in your party, or if your party is full. So now that it is, I check to see if there's any new Foom spells to learn. Nope. And so far, Avalon hasn't changed at ALL. Five hundred years after the days of King Gerarl, there are no new buildings, and KyaaKyaaWaiWai is still the official children's game.

I decide that Medea's first act as queen will be to check out the Haria area, and to see if it's as bad for her as it was for Fritz.

Final Fantasy VI - Day 4 (In Which We Learn About The Genitals Of Caves)

'Squirrel' is one of the greatest comedy words ever.You know, I don't know what to think about these things. They're kinda resilient, which you would assume squirrel mice would not be, but they do very little damage... and they're retardedly hard to steal from apparently. In short, I have no idea what they're supposed to be, and they're annoying meat shields for the thief behind them.

Actually, I lied, once the little mother fuckers aren't back attacking me, and thereby putting all my people in the back row, they go down in one hit. This just goes to show how very much I pay attention.
