Finally done with the story and epilogue in Red Dead Redemption 2. The controls, horse AI and bounty system frustrated me at times, but overall I loved the detail, plot and characters. With free roam unlocked, I've been spending the past couple of days exploring the western half of the map and doing whatever I like without worrying about honour.
Okay, so in Pokken Tournament DX, you don't strictly need to WIN the Daily Challenge -- that takes a huge load of mental stress off these matches given how I'm only practiced with maybe two Pokemon on the roster (Braixen and Sceptile).
Specifically, you get +3 Skill Points to the selected Pokemon* for challenging it, and +2 more Skill Points to a random Pokemon if you actually win.
* in the case of a Team Battle (3v3), the Skill Points are distributed +1 for each team member.
Space Empires V: Something of a slow turn. I've had to do some belt-tightening in order to keep the minerals coming in for the navy refit, putting all non-essential construction projects on hold and decommissioning any warships without an immediate mission. It's not time to panic yet, since from next turn I'll be able to get some upgrades going to boost my income, but it does mean having to prioritise Battlefleet Red for refit. Operation Longbow has stalled thanks to Battlefleet Green (Vanguard) badly needing supplies, but there's really not a lot I can do about it. I think I will have the fleet remain in Hesperos for one more turn to resupply, then it'll just have to be supplied en-route to Iridia.
At least the campaign around the Fornax zone is going well. Cribit may not be exporting anything to the Commonwealth yet, but the colonisation is nearly finished and in a few turns it'll be able to look after itself. Battlefleet Green (Siege) destroyed the Abiddon colony on Fornax VI ready to move on to Fornax III next turn. I'm thinking that rather than moving on to Uphada afterwards (Which is something of a fortress), it might be smarter to move the battlefleet into Cretirk to finish up operations there.
In the reaches things are messier, but under control. The Drushocka did indeed try to warp into Hesperos and were annihilated for their efforts. Given that the fleet destroyed a S-Series clipper on the way I'm in no mood for clemency. Battlefleet Blue (Dexter) is going to remain in Castor - I don't have the resources to refit it anyway, and there are several battleships in Gergan I'd like to destroy, if I get the chance.
So, in Pokken Tournament DX, today's challenge was a Team Battle -- my team being Weavile, Braixen and Gengar, with the opponent being Empoleon, Braixen, and Machamp.
I don't know how to Weavile, and I did SO poorly against Empoleon the first time that I had to quit the battle and restart. Then, surprisingly, I defeat all three with just Weavile alone. Don't ask me how.
