You loss out on money next map (all your units get a certain amount of money on the next map for every castle remaining), and you lose out on rank.

Too much of a hassle to go back for it, but F nonetheless.

....Does it actually progress from the end of Ep. 1?

Jeez, no wonder I'm staying in the wait camp.

I guess. It's more like an Episode 1.5 probably, if I had to guess.

It just sucks because they could've very easily made this for PS4 too. Instead they deadass said "we did not optimize it for PS4".

Again, this doesn't affect me personally because I think Final Fantasy is lame but it's more about the principle.

I still don’t get why people say Ethlyn is good offensively, at least before promotion, even with her light brand.

I wasn't expecting the slap to be this quick honestly. From what it looks like, the game's doing a bit more with Yuffie that will likely end up poorly received. In the form of FFVIIIR1 Gaiden.

The moment FFVIIR was released when it was I expected the PS4 players would lose out, but it's here I see.

(smh nothing on Rift Apart, State of Play was weak)

Continuing on the disaster train here, lets gets some Fs for poor Holyn. What his death really came down to is how scattered my healers are, as I slowed Lachesis too much trying to milk some healing xp from the green goons around her as she walked, and Ethlyn was way too far behind by using her return staff to get others to the front lines soon, so Aideen was trying to keep the troops healthy, while they faced a hoard of swordsmen, archers, mages and cavaliers that were rushing in. Also my attempts to sneak in and kill the Ballita got fragmented before they could even start, as some of Erin's crew attacked them on their way to Evans, and I was honestly afraid they would fight me to the death there. Fortunately they didn't, and Lewyn recruited Erin just fine, but that left the ones that made the mountain trek with too little health to try for the Ballista kills. As one final note, Arden continues to miss the commander kills I try to setup for him...Well its turn 33 (104 overall), and we have taken Mackily...

Now for the unit review...

My bedroom calendar show that the Jewish holiday of Purim begins tonight, and continues through tomorrow.

I went to some interfaith event my university held once, because Purim was happening around the day the event was held, the rabbi at the event chose to speak about the holiday. According to the rabbi, the meaning of Purim has two answers.:

  • Long Answer- Read the Book of Esther, and contemplate what is good and what is evil. Reflect on what justice truly is, do not take things as one or another on face value.
  • Short Answer- Dress up, party, get so drunk you can't tell the difference between good and evil.🍻

A Jewish professor I had said some Jewish holidays are no-fun and depressing. Purim is the fun Jewish holiday, they look forward to it.

Today I learned that there is a Yakuza game set in 1853.

*Double checks the date*

The beginning of the end of the Tokugawa Shogunate after 250 years of rule, with the arrival of US Commodore Matthew Perry demanding Japan open up to foreigners.

Sounds like an interesting choice of date, it's literally as late as Early Modern Japan gets. Although waiting maybe a decade for the Japanese insecurity and heavy pressures to open up and Westernize and the stability of the Shogunate in question would possibly be even better.

It's a shame that the mod has been abandoned. Jugdral on CK2 would be 10/10.

Meanwhile, in Civ V:

If I had this game and knew had to mod, I'd get to work ASAP on an XCX "Miran civilization/NLA" mod.

Erin and Lewyn are lovers! 

I didn’t even need that conversation that makes them lovers.

But can I still get it?

What’s that Midir? You think Bridget is pretty? Well, I have nothing better to base my pairings on! Become lovers, sure! Unless the council of teehee has something to say.

Anyway, chapter 3 is cleared. The plot now is seeming pretty random, ngl.

According to wikipedia:

"Set in the chaotic Bakumatsu period between 1853 and 1867, Sakamoto Ryōma is distressed resulting from conflicting pressures and uncertainty about one's self and role in the society. Being embroiled in the middle of a Tosa coup d'état and bent on finding the murderer who assassinated his mentor, Ryoma burrows himself with a hidden identity in the streets of Kyoto and joins the grim Shinsengumi."

Thinking about watching Transformers G1. 

My only experience with the franchise are the bad Michael Bay movies and a few episodes of Transformers Animated, a show which I would like to rewatch to see if it still holds up or if it's just a dumb dumb show for children.

Well, Anphony has been seized. On to Mackily and the rest of the chapter tomorrow most likely. Once the chapter's done, I'll have some rings to pass around. Paragon will go to Lachesis. Not sure where the others are going.

Ch. 2 is a slog, but at least the map theme is excellent. *chef's kiss*

Reminds me of Conquest in a way. Soft music that helps me chill while I play. I kind of prefer map themes like that.

Ey, classic Transformers is dope. The movie is fantastic too.

Better than anything Bay ever did, not that that's a high standard.

I used to think that first one at least was decent but then I watched this video and realized that those movies are kinda racist.

Eh whatever, the Bumblebee movie exists, which I hear is the only legitimately good live-action Transformers movie. I think I'll watch that before going into G1.

So chapter 2 ends on turn 48 (so 119 overall). I waited 3 full turns just to see the silly conversation between Sigurd and Sylvia, as they were never quite in the right place for it. As a side note Dierdre is safe, as she is too important to the plot to be killed, only capture. Much to my surprise I got the Knight's band from chapter 2, Ethlyn grabbed all the village loot Lewyn and Sylvia left behind, Jamke got the Chagall kill after continuing his mountain-climbing all the way to Augusty, Lex is high enough level to promote (but wont until the start of next chapter) and Zane's rider's bane made things a little uncomfortable for a while, but we made it through. I think that will be all for the day...

Now onto the unit review

Actually, since we're on that subject, here's the absolute funniest moment (ironically) in the entire Bayformers franchise because of how questionable it is.

And like, it is a real law in some places but like, Michael Bay really wanted us to know this information.

Why am I not surprised it's Texas.

1836 was a mistake.

For that matter, 1824 was also a mistake.

Bay's movies were trash anyway.

Why am I seeing a romance subplot play out in a film about warring sentient robots?

Transformers was never about the humans. It was always about the bots.

War for Cybertron was such a great game. Shame it was delisted from Steam for licensing something or another. At least the physical versions are pretty easy to nab anymore.

It doesn't.

Gets even funnier when you realize the actress for the daughter in this movie was 19 at the time, her character could've easily been of age and the whole scene could've been avoided but nope.

For a movie franchise based on a toy line, these movies are not that appropriate.

Though it does depend on the story, i'm inclined to agree. From what i know, there are some Transformers media that are exclusively about the robots while others do have noteworthy human characters in them.

Bay why?

Was the daughter 17 in the original story or her original incarnation?
