    Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2: Just playing more sessions really. The Brothers Gnomus mystery portal event is ongoing at the moment though, so we played a few sessions of that, leaving me with 25 of the 50 Rainbow Stars I need to open the good chest, which apparently holds something cool.

    Yooka Laylee: Beat Trev in the swamp level and expanded Glitterglaze Glacier, and then moved on to Capital Cashino. I'm not that big a fan of the level at the moment actually. Instead of Pagies, you get cashino chips for clearing challenges. 5 chips, with a 10 chip:1 Pagie conversion rate. It just feels kinda cheap and pointless. But the worst, the worst, part about this level is the boss. Like Trev, I can get to him in the un-expanded world, unlike Trev, he's a total dick to fight. First, I needed to clear the Kartos challenge for the world, which is annoying in its own right but then, immediately after, I'm thrown into the boss fight. Still riding Kartos. The most annoying part is that I.N.E.P.T is a fucking marathon. First up it's alternating between jumping bombs in Kartos, and some very specific shot timing to avoid damage. The first couple bombs are ok, regular pattern, not that hard to jump over. then it stops being regular. It stops being predictable. There will be bombs with longer spacing, there will be bombs with shorter spacing, there will be doubled up bombs, making the jump that much more precise. All of those will happen. you just don't know when. Add in Kartos' annoying controls, and you'll be getting hit a lot. And if you get hit too early into the bomb sequence, you won't even get the chance to shoot it, you'll need to start the bomb sequence again. Then he starts charging you repeatedly, and apparently there's a third phase, involving missiles. I have never seen it. And since all of this is happening while riding Kartos, you're trying to make the best of poor controls, and, since you're in Kartos, constantly moving on a track; no butterflies. I was trying to fight that thing for a good half hour. I still have not succeeded.

    Still playing Xenoblade Chronicles X. Just finished chapter 7, closing in on around 30 hours. It's surprised me how much time I've spent in the game already!

    Space Empires V: Admittedly my plans are a little muddled at the moment - building the last lot of colony ships is the main thing, but next turn I shall put the Gyrfalcon Type 1's into production and double all squadron sizes. In research I'm going to take a brief break to mass-upgrade to Applied Research Lvl 3

    Raided a dungeon in Skyrim Switch last night. It was the Silver Hand camp in Gallows Rock. Although we killed everyone on the outside, once inside we simply breezed through it, picked locks, looted chests, and generally ran fast enough that none of the resident Silver Hands could keep up. Oh, and we also freed that one live werewolf from its prison cell to cause a distraction.

    Fun times.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2 - I'm fairly early at Uraya. I swapped Tora for Vandham to see what he's like, though I kinda wish I can swap back so I can have my dedicated Tank again... Also the XC Wikia is a godsend. I keep forgetting how things work.

    Breath of the Wild: After leaving my Switch fallow for this long I've picked up Zelda again. Headed down to the Harfin Valley to pinch a Frostspear off a Stalnox. Found a Korok along the way on the south side of Ibara Butte

    Summon Night 6 (Vita) - I'm in chapter 5 I think? Going through all the sub event and then I'm going to grind for some skill points for a little bit before starting up the main scenario again. I hope there is a JP voice DLC for this. While some of the characters sound great some of them sound terrible.

    Yooka-Laylee: After about another 30 minutes of trying, I actually managed to beat I.N.E.P.T. Finished off some of the other challenges too while I was there. After that I went back to expand Moodymaze Marsh, and promptly 100%ed it, feeling rather good about that one. I then went back to expand Capital Cashino and finished up some more stuff in there. After that I opened up Galleon Galaxy, did what I could, and then expanded that place right up because damn that place is tiny when you first open it. Still only a little ways into it though. Apparently I have enough Pagies to go fight Capital B whenever I want though, so that's neat.

    Still being ridiculous about my US dex: still at the trainer's school, now at 54% dex completion :p

    Thinking about getting back into Moon but not sure if there's a point if I finished UM.

    Space Empires V: I'm left debating the wisest course of action. I don't like the Abiddon Enclave and the Cue Cappa Commonwealth getting all chummy on my doorstep, especially now they seem to be enjoying laying minefields wherever they can. But I'm not in any position to conduct any fleet operations there yet, still being low on ships. On the other hand I don't want to commit all my resources to dealing with the Xiati. I think perhaps I ought to hold off till I've upgraded my Research Centres and weapon platforms empire-wide.

    In any case at some point I need to order up more ships everywhere. Another nine Gyrfalcons would probably be best, along with two or three B-Series ready for when I need to bulldoze some mines away

    In my current Skyrim Switch tales, Barbas made it to Haemar's Shame ahead of me, but I was able to take out most of the vampires without his help. (Aside: nothing says stealth like an opponent failing to notice the naked cat lady aiming a glowing magical bow at him from just 20 feet away.) In the final room, though, he was the one taking out all the vampires with hardly any help, even one Master Vampire (I chipped in a few arrows, but he had already done like 2/3 in damage).

    Then while attempting to infiltrate the bandit fort at Treva's Watch, Barbas's lack of stealth meant that about halfway through we ended up fighting off like half the bandits in the fort at once. I counted the bodies afterwards: eight of them, all fought in just a hallway and its one adjoining room.

    Unfortunately the game later froze and crashed -- however, unlike on the PS3, I was still able to menu out of the game and shut it down.

    In other news, Pokemon Shuffle received an update major enough that I had to redownload it completely. The changes:
    - Ability to spend Jewels to skip the current Main stage & unlock the next
    - One-time "Trainer Rank" bonuses based on total # collected Pokemon
    - Daily login bonuses (in addition to the usual 500 Coins) featuring items
    - "Undo" button next to "Optimize" button, restores the previous team used when playing a given level
    - Various text fixes (ability descriptions, etc.)

    Think I've dumped way too many hours in that game now.
