Last night I started up Undertale and made it to Hotland in time for "art club" in the hidden room -- i.e. ran right into the rare monster "So Sorry". Fun fight, not necessarily difficult (which is fitting for an enemy that appears literally ONLY ONE DAY PER YEAR) but he did hit a bit harder than I was expecting. Afterwards, I made a backup copy of my save and kept restarting, ultimately determining that you don't need to be there are 8PM sharp, just any time during the 8:00 hour. (Apparently the "8PM" requirement was dropped on the Switch version?)

Space Empires V: Things are beginning to gather pace now. A quick scout into Decatur via Quikil shows an odd picture - two homeworlds heavily fortified, but Decatur III and IV are woefully underdefended. Since it'll take at least four turns for Battlefleet Green (Siege) to be ready to raze Quikil II, I've ordered the fleet in to deal with Decatur now. Not much move on Cribit, but the planetstrike has happened, and Battlefleet Green (Vanguard) is on-station to attack any large Cue Cappa fleet.

Hesperos is the oddest situation. That major Abiddon fleet in Gergan is gone, for some reason, which at least allows Battefleet Blue to attack some targets of opportunity till it turns up again. Certainly the siege groups have started work, with Castor VI destroyed and VII about to be hit with a planetstrike. Neighbouring Spica has too many underdefended planets to ignore, so I'm bringing in HMS Lazar, Arachneon, and Fenrir to take advantage of that now.

I'm changing my strategy somewhat, in any case. Rather than just using AUTO-Siege drones as auxiliary to the siege battlegroups, I'm beginning construction on independent squadrons to attack targets of opportunity that don't need to be integrated into any wider strategy. The idea to keep the pressure on even when the logistics of fielding the main fleet mean they have to lie at anchor for a while

I beat Doom 3, it might be the world’s most generic dimly-lit claustrophobic hallway shooter, but it was mostly fun and Doom is a heavy influence on those kinds of games anyway, so I think this one gets a pass.

Now I’m playing Silent Hill 3, in the past few days I’ve made it to the Nightmare part of the office building dungeon. At this point in the game I still like the second game more, but these are probably the best monster designs in the series yet, combat is better, and Heather is cool. The dirty toilet gag actually made me laugh (it’s funnier than it sounds).

I love Silent Hill 3, the hospital was the part that really freaked me out. I had play SH 2, 4 and 1 before and so I thought I could beat SH3 on hard mode. That was a big mistake on my part haha, that game kicked my butt. I couldn't get into SH3's story that much, but the horror and setpieces in that game are top notch.

@TeaWaah ; Sounds like your assessment is similar to mine, I super don’t care about the spooky cult stuff in Silent Hill, I think it’s best when it just analyzes people by tormenting them, the way James and Eddie and Angela were. So far the third game is just Halloweentime fun to me, but maybe that’ll change.

Is this your first time playing Wind Waker? I love that game, it’s the only Zelda game I have childhood nostalgia for, but I played it later in life and still was enchanted by it. Probably my second-favorite Zelda game, second only to Majora’s Mask. Wind Waker has by far the easiest dungeons in the series but I don’t care cuz it’s so whimsical and fun.

A few of my favorite cats in MHGU have reached Lv.60 (out of a Lv.75 cap). In the meantime, I switched back to my hunter and finished crafting the Najarala X gear (one of my favorite designs). +Talisman and gems for extra trapping skills. In other news, I finished crating the Kecha X set, and gemmed it up for defensive skills (Guard Up and Water Res).

Yeah exactly. Silent Hill 2 is my favorite game of all time, and I definitely prefer 2 and 4's more interesting storyline compared to 1 and 3. Just the idea of killing a cult's "God" sounds really cliche and "video-gamey" to me.

Yep, it's my first time! Never had a GameCube growing up, and I got the HD version on Wii U for Christmas last year. I've been enjoying it so far, especially the music and gameplay, even if it is a little easy :)

Still playing Wind Waker HD! Here's where I am so far.

I'm at about 10 hearts, have the fast sail and cyclone teleportation, maxed bombs, 60 arrows and 1000 Rupee capacity. Just cleared the forsaken fortress for the second time and went back to Hyrule with Tetra. Now that I have the hammer I'm going to try to do some additional sidequests, will probably stop by Tingle Tower next

Well, with a bit of refinement we repelled (not slew) Lao-Shan Lung in Monster Hunter Gen U. We're G3 and can hunt all the fun monsters now (Zinogre, Yian Garuga, Fated Four, etc). Didn't get any interesting materials in the rewards, but it was enough to craft a full set of Lao-Shan Palico gear. We'll definitely go back sometime as a hunter to kill it for real.

Narratively, there was a report of some ... giant ... thing attacking a different fortress (we do know what it is already, no thanks Internet, but whatever) and for once it actually had a well-done expository illustration to go along with it.

On a sidenote, we could already hunt Garuga and Glavenus, just unofficially (Garuga is an intruder in a G2 Prowler quest, and there's an event Prowler quest featuring Glavenus).

Been participatingin Splatoon 2's Splatoween celebrations, and it was pretty enjoyable seeing the stages all prettied up (in addition to the whole night-time thing), the battle intros were things of beauty, the Splatfest-specific stage was pretty neat, and I even managed to win a few of those new-fangled X10 Battles, and even one of those rare, elusive X100 battles, so all-in-all, it was a fun time.

Space Empires V: not an actual turn this time, but I did decide to tinker with my Phoenix-class Battleship design. I've tried to redesign it as a force multiplier, something that can act as flagship to the siege fleets. I'm thinking that an emphasis on smart bombs (Cargo) to specifically target weapon platforms is what is needed to break these fortress planets I keep having to commit huge amount of time to battering down.

I'm thinking about getting rid of the repulsor beam as redundant, since all the accompanying Vulture-class cruisers will have them anyway. The twin heavy weapon phase accelerators in the prow might be a case of trying to be too clever ... they take up 120kt's worth of space between them, enough to double the weight of bombs were I to remove them
