Space Empires V: A fairly quiet turn - a little consolidation in Eridani plus a few low-key operations at the edges of the Commonwealth. Next turn will be a busy one. Battlefleet Green (Siege) is in Cribit and ready to resume sieges. Battlefleet Blue (Siege) will muster at Optera, but since the reinforcements are a few turns away I've ordered Mavramur and Anvard to build a cruiser each as further reinforcements.

Consolidating Goldrush is the priority right now, so Battlefleet Blue (Sinister) is going to be tasked with escorting freighters through to Iridia for the time being. The plan is to at least make a start on building warp point defences, since new colonists are going to be many turns away.

Dragonball FighterZ: Cleared most of the combo challenges (thank sweet, merciful Beerus that you don't need to clear all of them for the gold trophy, because fuck that). Started playing some online ranked matches, and I tell ya, it's actually kinda fun when you're opponent's just messing around with lower scale combos like you are. I have no doubts that I'll start hating my life once my ranking goes up a bit, but until then, it's actually kinda fun. Who knows, I might even spend the $8 on a character or two, since Bardock's been beckoning a bit. Definitely not the FighterZ Pass, because I ain't payin' $55 total for trash like Broly.
Also did some story mode, unlocked Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku (god that's fun to say).

Final Fantasy II

Fun fact: Deumion refuses to give you your ultimate weapon if you don't pass to each of the floors needed to get it. Thankfully, Gordon rejoins later in the game so I have not lost the Gungnir. The bad thing? I have to backtrack to the Dreadnought again, and it is on the other side of the world... Really, at this point I'm thinking FFII is outright trolling me.

Final Fantasy II: Getting spell levels and making Leila strong. Also, the Chimera battle at the Deist Cavern was horribly disappointing, specially since you could battle Chimeras way earlier than intended without realizing that they were supposed to be a boss.

Space Empires V: The siege of Cribit XII went about as well as could be expected. I lost HMS Messenger and Excalibur, which is annoying, but nothing that can't be replaced from Eden if I really want to - actually I decided it was better to order up another Condor-class battleship instead, since for some reason Eden can build one as quickly as a Vulture-class cruiser. Keeping up the momentum I'd like to be able to deal with Cribit VI and VIA next turn.

Serendipitously, Amelia is ready with the satellites for Iridia at the same time as Yameena joins Battlefleet Blue (Sinister), so the battlefleet won't need to stay on station once it's escorted the freighters in. I've ordered the rest of the battlefleet into Spica, since HMS Arachneon briefly spotted an Eee fleet in neighbouring Quilktin. It may mean nothing, but I want ships on hand just in case

I seriously need cheats for Final Fantasy II. Deumion is going to drive me insane. No matter what I do, he doesn't give me Gordon's ultimate weapon. No matter what I do, he only gives me an Elixir. I'll try one last time tomorrow.

I'll try if it works doing them in order, since it didn't matter when I did it with Josef.

Pokémon Ultra Sun

Don’t boot this game up nearly often enough any more. I redeemed myself a Zeraora and got the special berries from the event, then compiled a list of Pokémon I still need for the Alola Dex.

Dwarf Fortress
Much happened since my last report. My fortress got attacked by a titan and although it was ultimately slayed by a quickly assembled squad of swordsdwarves and subsequently turned into fortress' main food source for aproximately few years (seriously), it wasn't before it killed 30 dwarves and most of my livestock.
I spend next few days trying to bury them as quickly as possible, which led to other projects getting delayed. Some of the dead returned as angry ghosts due to not getting buried in time, but I managed to put them all to rest before they killed anyone else.
Unfortunately though it was far from the end of my troubles. Soon after I finished working on cemetery king of my nation and one of counts died at the same time, with the count's only successor living in my fortress and king having no legal successors, with another dwarf from my fortress being chosen to replace him. This means that I now have two nobles who only give me a very small morale boost and in exchange don't do any work and demand to be assigned high level bedrooms, dinning halls, throne rooms and tombs.
Now some good news. During the titan's attack I got an (ultimately unrealised) idea of luring it into my aqueduct and drowning it. Although I decided against it due to how much time redesigning the aqueduct for this purpose would take, now I finally finished the trap. Its working principle is simple: the well that takes the water from river has its upper end open to surface and has stairs leading downwards into the aqueduct. On the other end of the main pipe there is another, similar well, leading into the fortress. Between both wells there are two retractable grates, and whole thing is equipped with a draining system. When enemy attacks, I drain the water from pipes, retract both grates and close the gate preventing the water from flowing from river into my pipes. Once I close the main gates, enemy's rather simple pathfinding lead it into said pipes. Then, once the enemies are between two grates, I close them, trapping them inside, and once again let the water flow, dooming them to a watery grave.

My friend and I recently got back into Splatoon 2 a little bit. It's amazing how bad we are .and whether that's from getting rusty or from the online thing making sure less noobs go on, it kinda makes the game less fun for us. Like we always have to stop after a little bit.

Oh, and sometimes I hate the rotating stages/modes thing about the game. We only like tower control and splat zones. Rainmaker is ok but not our favorite, and clam blitz is terrible. So if league is either of those latter 2 we just resort to turn wars :/

Final Fantasy II

Finally got Gungnir. I'll advance some more the story to try out my shiny new weapon. By the way, I find it funny how Gordon is completely competent now. Sadly, in this playthrough, it's Leila the useless one. I hope that changes once I can get her ultimate weapon.

FFX - I beat Penance and Nemesis! Now the only thing I have to do is complete the sphere grid, which will take a long time to do. I

Stardew Valley - About 16 hours into this game so far and loving it. I'm almost done with the first fall season, just upgraded my house and planted some more fruit trees. This game is so wonderful!

Ace Combat 7 - On Mission 10. I love Ace Combat, and this definitely feels like a refreshing return to form after Assault Horizon and Infinity. However, it's far from perfect. I still need to play the whole game (maybe more than once) before I can give a final verdict though.

Persona 5

Narrowly avoided failing Ukumura's Palace(following a guide)that has you do the entirety on the 5th then wait till the 9th to send calling card before finishing it on the 10th
