Spectrobes, Beyond the Portals: Got the game for free, might as well try it out. I'm on the first planet that's not just the opening tutorial stage, and it's not bad so far. Excavation can be a little annoying given that it can be really hard to see bits you haven't cleared off yet, and by god is awakening Spectrobes annoying. It's a cool idea to have them wake up with the sound of your voice, but I can't get the mic to register any actual words without screaming them, and even if I do get it to register something I need to hold it in a specific volume range for 3 seconds. Another thing is that a lot of the time, Spectrobes can look super different after evolutions which sometimes can be cool, but can also just come out with a major unwanted change in how they look.
I'm progressing very slowly though due to taking a lot of time to extract minerals and fossils (you'd think I'd eventually get the point that Genshi doesn't have anything besides Spipods, Bartopods, and Inkapods, but no, I need to check every fossil I find just in case it's something awesome).

Space Empires V: The Cue Cappa are being more proactive than I expected. A squadron of nine has just turned up in Klaestron, the apparent purpose to escort a freighter full of troops to ... well, I don't know which planet. The main squadrons of Battlefleet Green have finished their refits, so in response I've moved them into Klaestron to try and intercept. I think Coseflame will be fine, anyway, since its just finished building the new weapon platforms and the old ones are yet to be scrapped. IV is less certain, but it also hosts an army. We shall see what happens.

An absolutely huge upgrade this turn - radioactives extraction and research centres. I'm going to have to make a proper long-term research plan as the new research points begin to flood in

I did some more training and evolving, and Goodra became my newest addition to the Pokédex. Next, I finally continue my trek up Mount Lanakila.

I played Spectrobes:Origins (Wii) and can agree here. Though it's not like Pokemon is much different ... *cough* Incineroar

Pokémon Ultra Sun

I caught Necrozma and named it Jabberwocky, then fused it with Simba the Solgaleo. Then I arrived at the Pokémon Center on Mount Lanakila and enlisted the help of the move reminder to teach moves to my Xurkitree, Aegislash, and Elmer the Poipole.

Still going with Hollow Knight. I beat the Traitor Lord after many tries. The first half of the fight was easy, but as soon as he started firing out those waves I kept stumbling and mistiming my dashes through them. I finished getting all the grubs, too, the map from the Collector helped a lot. I think I'm slowly getting towards the end now.

I remember playing this years ago, I also played the sequel too. You can blow into the mic instead of talking to wake them up, if that's easier for you.

Made another few attempts at MHGen's final boss Nakarkos, with my cat. The good news is we almost timed out rather than being defeated ... seriously, there were maybe 30 seconds left on the clock by the final cart that failed the quest.

Equipping the Torn Notebook might help here, it gives you longer invulnerability after taking a hit (the glasses do this too, but have lower defense than the tutu).

Spectrobes Beyond the Portals: At the second planet, and I've been told to go digging around for Flash Spectrobes. I've only been able to find one species in the ground, so I kinda cheated and used a card code to get a second species.

Shovel Knight: Just playin' the game, lookin' for music, that sorta stuff.

In Nigh Plains, take the exit on the far right side of the map to get to Server Desert. Follow the border clockwise and take the first exit you see, then follow the next room straight through, and you'll be at the volcano. Taomon lives at the top of the slope, just follow the Digimon who try to test you and you'll reach him.

got to play a bit of GuildWars 2 recently, and some of the Sommerset beta for ES: O. ... it's probably not a good thing that beta'ing ES: O is making me want to go play Morrowind instead. ^<__<^;; As for GW2, just trying to master some stuff for my glider, like using updrafts. I need to master bouncing mushrooms thingy too. Ehhhh....... I'd just rather explore than sit there grinding events for the EXP for this stuff, but in order to explore I need both of those things mastered. Connundrum~
