Back to Assassin's Creed Odyssey. I beat KHIII, and sadly found myself completely disinterested in anything the post-game had to offer. I hope they do some good DLC that features some of the characters I feel got brushed aside too quickly. Meanwhile, I'm delving pretty deep into Odyssey and have a feeling it may be the closest I will ever get to platinuming a game (which I'm sure I'll fail to do lol).

I forgot how much I love that game. It's just so bad, it's perfect. To put into perspective, it's a Smash clone with characters from Konami, Takara and Hudson. I mean, just look at the characters:

From Konami

Power Pro-kun (Yakyuu Power Pro Baseball)
Simon (Castlevania)
Twinbee (Twinbee)
Solid Snake (Metal Gear)
Moai (Gradius)

From Takara

Licca-chan (Licca)
Tyson Granger (Beyblade)
Optimus Prime (Transformers)
Microman (Microman)
Asuka (Cool Girl)
Megatron (Transformers)

From Hudson

Bomberman (Bomberman)
Momotaro (Momotaro Densetsu)
Master Higgins (Adventure Island)
Yugo the Wolf (Bloody Roar)
Manjimaru (Far East of Eden)
Binbogami (Momotaro Densetsu)

And here are the stages:

Powe Pro Stadium (Yakyuu Power Pro Baseball)
Dracula's Castle (Castlevania)
Sky Fortress (Twinbee)
Big Shell (Metal Gear Solid 2)
Artificial Sun (Gradius)
Licca-chan's House (Licca)
Giant Soldier Devastator (Transformers)
Tree House (Treena & Her Forest Friends!)
Night City (Cool Girl)
Micro Earth (Microman)
Devil's Orchard (Far East of Eden)
Floating Continent (Star Soldier)
Bomberman Battle (Bomberman)
Electric Railway (Momotaro Dentetsu)
Adventure Island (Adventure Island)

The game can be kind of hard if you use the slowest characters (Moai, Megatron and Binbogami), but it's beatable. Too bad you can't choose your opponents in the Vs. Mode, though.

Yeah, there's something oddly compelling about playing Tetris in a massive battle-royale format. I haven't played Tetris (of any kind) in years, but my first round I placed around 25th. Second game near the top 10. Fourth game, I landed in second place overall, and fifth game was my first actual win (but man was that a close call) .

Space Empires V: Strange how things turn out sometimes. The Tiqohiw Empire handed over Economics Lvl 9 - saving me a fortune in upkeep and giving me the resources to immediately finish the refit of Battlefleet Red (Dexter). The resource upgrade across the Commonwealth is happening anyway, but now I can resume most of my planned construction projects.

Some of the campaigns are still messy. I wouldn't have thought twenty fighters would cause such a problem, but in Decatur they mean I'm going to have to remove Decatur V before trying to gain complete control of the system. It's been a long, long slog, and it's going to remain a long slog. Likewise in the reaches I'm tired of having outposts in systems half under my control. Dealing with Castor VIII as soon as possible is a priority.

The big strategic problem is that I really need another siege fleet to do that, but I don't have the time to build one. To solve the issue I'm revisiting the old Phoenix-class Siege Dreadnought concept. Now I've got better technology it seems more feasible. The design is built around massive Smart Bombs and a massive Repulsor Beam, and otherwise heavily based on the Condor-class Battleship's weaponry. One key difference is the addition of two large Wave Motion Guns. It's not quite as big and scary as I'd like, but crucially it barely takes longer to build than a Condor. I've ordered two built at the Spica yards

Space Empires V: More upgrades today with mineral miners on the books. I have enough resources now to refit most of the rest of commissioned Battlefleet Red, barring seven light cruisers. Next turn will bring a shipyard upgrade - I intend to bring in my new Orbital Yard 15 into commission in Lyrae and probably Sephandris. They're a design pretty much stolen from the AI players, a space station with nothing more than a space yard. Cheap, quick to produce, intended to build light cruisers. Once complete, the Lyrae system will be able to build fifteen Saker-class light cruisers in six turns.

The Fornax campaign is beginning to wind down. Only Fornax I is left, which will be a hard fight, but manageable for the last one. I may wait a turn before making the assault, since the siege fleet is beginning to run low on ammunition and I'd like the ordnance replicators to fabricate some more. Preferably I'd recall Battlefleet Green (Sinister) for a one-turn refit, but that's dependant on what ships show up from Uphada

Well, I recently managed to finish what I think is the final mission in Wargroove - y'know, that one where
you have to fight an army of enemy units with seven Commanders, one of which will get mind-controled at the end of every second turn.
a lot of stuff happens, and now all I have to do is get enough stars on missions and such to unlock the Epilogue... I hope.


Oh an can I say that Piranah Plant is super fun to play as in Smash U? I mean I know alot of you already knew that, but still.

Space Empires V: It never rains, as they say. About five planets suddenly developed breathable atmospheres, allowing me to get rid of some expensive atmospheric modification plant and begin construction on mining and refining infrastructure. A big shipyard upgrade means it's an expensive turn, but I can still start on refitting Battlefleet Blue (Sinister) anyway. It seems the Sheward Sovereignty are testing warp point manipulation - the Krikkt-Zezzis warp just closed for no obvious reason. All the more reason to begin construction on Saker-class light cruisers sooner rather than later.

Fornax I is cleared, for the loss of HMS Excalibur and Messenger. No huge deal, though next turn I may have the orbital yards at Port Lindsay begin construction on replacements. As soon as Battlefleet Green (Sinister) has been refitted and is back in-system, the siege fleet can move on to Cretirk. I may possibly recall the siege fleet for a refit first.

Space Empires V: All these infrastructure efforts are beginning to pay off, albeit slowly and mostly in the background. Minerals and radioactives are slowly flowing into the treasury, mostly slowly because a lot of large planets with small populations are building the necessary facilities slowly. Next turn Cribit I will finally finish the space port, so I can expect a jump in income. Is it enough, well, more or less. The last of main Battlefleet Red and Battlefleet Blue (Sinister) have had the refit this turn, but I haven't really got the resources to refit the Orbital Dock 22s into 23s as I'd like. In any case, the priority is for Battlefleet Blue (Siege) to get a refit. I know I keep postponing the Castor VIII siege, but it really is an absolute fortress.

Battlefleet Green (Siege) is going to have to stay on-station in Fornax. That Abiddon Enclave dreadnought I've been looking for has somehow turned up in Cretirk, and I'm hoping it'll try and warp through into the teeth of the fleet's temporal tachyon cannonade

Various rounds in Tetris 99, both good and bad. For the most recent game I won, I set my targeting mode to "Attackers" the whole match and just played ... and set new personal records for max combo length (8 pieces) and max # KOs (22!).

My Hero One's Justice Switch version, came back and decided to do more online matches and buying more accessories (mainly for Izuku, currently have the Deku rabbit ear head accessory, plaid uniform, and Shoto styled glasses on him and it looks so cute). Also got stomped by a Himiko player, I very rarely come across them online so it was a surprise for sure.

Started up Horizon Zero Dawn yesterday and just cleared the bandit camp on Devil's Thirst - thinking about doing some exploring and sidequests next. Sprinting feels a bit awkward, but it's a fun and beautiful game that's giving me some God of War 4 vibes.
