Pokken DX: Just some casual games with my bro. Discovered that I very much enjoy playing Aegislash, and that speed types are pure evil for their ability to string you into extended combos that you will not break out of, letting them sweep an entire team battle with little to no damage.

Steven Universe Attack the Light: Beat The Insectisaw, upgraded Steven's shield at the forge, and headed a little way in to the snow. We very nearly didn't beat The Insectisaw. I think my problem was fusing into Stevonnie way too early in the fight, which left me without Steven as a healer. It wasn't that bad, since Stevonnie could bubble both teammates at once, but the lack of healing still really hurt. We wound up with literally every party member except Connie knocked out (leaving us without access to the Cheeseburger Backpack), and even Connie was on her last legs. I was luckily just able to whack it with Connie enough before she got wiped out too. Speaking of Connie, she seems to be the cause of a few softlocks. Twice now the game has just casually softlocked on me after... Something happened with Connie's sword swing. I have a theory that it might have something to do with her taking damage from hitting a spiky enemy, but I'm not 100% sure.

No, there's another shrine nearby, though it may be tricky to find. The strength of your radar ping is based on how closely your current direction of movement 'points' to the shrine's location ... in three dimensions. For example, if you're getting somewhat weak readings while gliding over the area but drop the glider and fall and suddenly get a high ping, it means the shrine is literally straight down from you.
Aight, looks like I'm going shrine hunting today. I'm guessing it's probably stashed away in some sort of subterranean cave or blocked beneath rocks.

(All this for probably 300 Rupees when I can just farm Farosh Horns...)

Pokémon Ultra Sun

I’ve been breeding HA starters that I previously traded for, getting Omanyte, Granbull, and other cool Pokémon from Wonder Trade, and training on Route 16, where I evolved my Pichu and Buneary after relaxing them at Isle Avue.

Steven Universe Save the Light: Going deeper into The Great North, and god damn are these enemies going nuts. I'm sorry, an unguardable hit to everyone? A heavy hitting two shot attack causing a chill effect? No, I don't care that it moves slowly, the star gauge just doesn't fill fast enough to kill it quickly. Honestly Garnet's Taunt ability has been a godsend, partly because she can't take knockback. We're near the end of The Great North, but I found a key for the door back in the woods, so I'm going back there first (at least I can beat the shit out of the woods enemies).

A friend got me back into GuildWars 2 recently. I'm working on the Heart of Thorns expansion now, trying to work on masteries and new professions and whatever. Might start Path of Fire soon just to try to get a mount sooner rather than later. The new professions are confusing, but that's what I get for quitting for like 5+ years. :p Did a lot of falling off cliffs and impersonating a pancake before I got to start using my glider.

Space Empires V: A lot of rethinking this turn. Battlefleet Blue (Sinister) is really beginning to feel its age - five out of six destroyers are Gyrfalcon MkI's, the sixth being a MkII. In light of this I've decided to order Battlefleet Blue (Dexter) up to Wanduk to relieve the fleet. I shall probably refit them in situ at Anvard since I have a Y-Series repair ship there.

It seems my I-Series MkIII's aren't really fit for service any longer, so HMS Farnsworth and Brannigan will get an emergency refit. This won't affect the timetable for the Klaestron attack, since I'll want at least one turn's worth of scouting and had no intention of capturing every planet anyway.

I've ordered up eighteen new Buzzard-class cruisers for all the battlefleets now that I've finalised a design I can get on with. I may look into a linebreaker-style cruiser to replace the Heron-class light cruisers in frontline duties. In any case I need better shields right now to prepare for an upgrade across the board

In MH4U I received a Guild Quest for hunting two (G-rank) Yian Garuga . . . .

...egad. I'd rather go a few more bouts losing to (G-Rank) Teostra than those two.

EGAD.

Space Empires V: Somehow Battlefleet Green's Gyrfalcons turned out to be ancient MkI's - not a huge problem since I could simply swap them for MkII's from the reserve squadron. It does mean the reserve will need an immediate refit at the Port Lindsay yards. It may be prudent to treat the Klaestron attack as a scouting operation and withdraw the battlefleet for refit before committing to a proper attack.

I want to make a real effort to squash the Xiati out of Wanduk soon. Sarah and Samantha are bringing in more settlers, and once the last Xiati colonies are gone I can mass-produce colony ships from Avalon to complete the job.

Finally got hold of Planet Utilisation Lvl 3, so started construction on atmospheric modification plants across about half the empire.

Pokémon Ultra Sun

I suffered my first and so far only blackout in the game at the hands of a wild Scraggy. I was trying to level up some weaker Pokémon of mine, but neglected to include a backup battler in my party to stand in for Snorunt.

Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest

FINALLY managed to beat Pazuzu, though I forgot to axe that one switch on the second floor. Managed to get the Thunder Rock and bring Captain Mac's boat closer to land.

Still can't be as embarrassing as this defeat (in ff7).

Started up Dust: An Elysian Tail for the first time in seemingly forever. Where was I again...?

*consults menu*

Oops.

*consults controls page*

Oh, that's right. Exploring the caverns underneath Aurora Village. I do like that Steam has cloud backups of save data. Last time I played was on a different machine.

Anyway, we found a boss, some items, wrapped up some of the sidequests... we seem to be roughly 60% of the way through it by now.
