Yup, only 4 points yesterday, ouch!

Hey Tom, I'm curious when you're going to get to the Episodes 25 & 26 - School Raze?
Also, don't forget about the Holiday Special - Best Gift Ever too.

Just a friendly reminder!

It's close to coming up in the rotation, but the whole rotation is moving super slowly these days and probably will continue thusly until like January :\ Will help that I'm now done with Deltarune and another side project! I'll hazard a guess of Wednesday. <_>

CoK: One heck of a heel turn, that. Shoulda seen it coming! Didn't- it was too obvious and the visions said to trust him. Maybe the vision person knew this would happen and wanted to set up whatever cool KalaDala stuff we're gonna get. This whole battle has been fantastic so far.

My hold came in at the library, so it's time for my next actual book! It's coming out of left field a bit, but the main character is running a tabletop baseball sim league very similarly to the one I'm running in the background, so I felt kinda like I had to.

The Universal Baseball Association, Inc., J. Henry Waugh, Prop.- This is about what I expected so far! I have been spoiled a bit on the plot, but I would imagine the thing happening quite soon anyway. Dude's pretty deep in the sim. Probably the weirdest (pre-)sex scene I've seen, not that the bar is set particularly high.

Trails: Spent the whole time fiddling with config stuff. I found Turbo! ...which is mapped kinda oddly, since Alt+Enter is a shortcut that screws with my resolution <_<

Gensou Wanderer: Had an otherwise solid run that ended just slightly farther in than last time- I learned that enemies can absorb half-phantoms to level up. >_> I really need to get over my habit of kinda getting in a groove and not reacting properly to actual threats- in both this and Sanctuary I have several deaths that could've been prevented if I had been quicker to realize I needed to use my resources.

Gensou: Got to the end boss! (of the dungeon I hope, and not the game?) The first phase went fine, but then he transformed and just way overpowered me. Hmm.

LP Stardew: Error: Recording isn't working [long string of numbers I can't copy paste that doesn't come up with anything helpful anyway]. Helpful! We'll try again in a couple restarts.

MLP 8-25+26- School Raze: Derpy sighted! ...powers not working makes me really wanna make an MLP Mafia setup. ...Sure, let's open the magic door that's keeping Tirek inside! That'll probably work! I am oddly sad about the cockatrice that can't do cockatrice things. Meanwhile back at the school HEY GUYS IT'S A RACISM METAPHOR! Oh good, it's up to whatshisface and the CMC now. We're saved. Cozy Glow is a pretty refreshing spin on MLP villainy. Also getting Harry Potter flashbacks from the Neighsay bit. Didn't expect him to wind up on our side! lol Twilight pulled a Rorshach..."You're trapped in here with us!" I...feel like the bars are wide enough for Tirek to just walk out. Kinda a deus ex machina finish, but otherwise solid!

Persona: Third letter of introduction done! Don't think I can push this run any farther before resting, though.

Cozy Glow was truly an insane villain, and one that's not a magic user threatening the world of Equestria for once.

FRIENDSHIP IS POWER! ~ Keep telling that to yourself Cozy Glow, it might just work?

But yeah, the Tree of Harmony stepping in as a last minute defense to bail out the world from being sucked into an alternate dimension vortex, kind of a sudden turn of events in the episode.

Also, have a great Thanksgiving Tom!

Thanks! I have gotten myself sick again but it was otherwise pretty solid.

Pokemon: I'm not sure I'm really supposed to be in Olivine right now, but here I am. This Thanksgiving I am thankful that the Rival didn't wanna fight when he showed up while all my pokemon were on the ropes. Also inventory cap is apparently a thing I don't remember- I couldn't buy a RageCandyBar and thought that was just a weird wall I had to wait on, but later I couldn't pick up a Berry either.

Gensou: Had another run stopped on phase two of the boss- this time I Jumped out. Not sure that matters, but it feels better at least!

Persona: Massages are not that big a deal in the grand scheme of things, but I still feel like a 1337 ha><0r getting to go out after a run. Fourth letter was a big ol' pain, although that was partially because I was pretty sure I needed to figure out a way into the vent, possibly involving the statues, and messed with that for like a half hour before finding the spot to climb up instead. =_=

Pokemon: Made it up the Lighthouse! Poor Amphy :( Gonna explore the sea to the south of Olivine even though I am 90% sure there's nothing there but encounters I'm not entirely ready for and whirlpools I can't pass, but it'll be good experience at the very least. Also Nidorina has really been kickin' butt! I gave her Strength and boy is that better than pretty much any move I have on my team at this point. (exception: Surf)

Words of Radiance: Shallan and Eidolon haven't met yet and probably won't for another bit, but I am already 100% behind this pairing.

Gensou: Whiffed on a Normal Sage Thingy because I was kicking butt but couldn't find food. :\ Should probably try to rush those more since they don't give you shops and stuff like normal runs. Also finished the novice tutorial thingies and got a decent ways into the intermediate ones, with more restarts than I care to admit.

Persona: Cleaner took me a bit, but it was kinda easy if you had Null Dark! Now to just walk back to the Safe Room without healing so I can conserve SP an- oh. Well at least I can predict and resist his patter- oh. Well I made it through both phases someho- oh. Frigg man that was final boss worthy, and I assume at the very least Shido is still on deck. I'm entertained that Thor got me through so much of the Akechi fights. All right, personas tooled up as much as I can, equips upgraded last minute, backup save made...I'm as ready as I'm gonna be. (unless I grinded for a few days for more links and money and healing items I guess?) Fire the Futaba Cannon! First phase was oddly easy, and then he went from a Gundam villain to a Metal Gear Solid one. Second phase wasn't bad either. Third and fourth phase were kinda rough, but I managed to pass it, and without using my emergency Soma! I am pretty convinced there's gonna be some other dungeon- that didn't quite feel like a super true end boss, and I imagine I'll have to deal with "god" or whoever too. Either way, 19 days to the change of heart!

WoR: gonna BRING BACK THE KNIGHTS RADIANT I guess! I appreciate Guard Kal

ARIA 3- Those Feelings Within...: ..President Aria can read? o_O WAIT WRONG SEASON we were just about to meet that kid!

ARIA 3- With That Transparent Young Girl...: Said kid is Alice, from Orange Planet. She isn't experienced enough to take off a glove yet, but seems really talented. Her blunt and reserved nature ticks off Aika in record time! Orange Planet is apparently going to be the next top company, and she's a star recruit despite still being in middle school. Alice seems jealous of Akari's sincerity and joy- Alice perhaps is just kinda bad at people. Akatsuki is bored again, so time to harass Akari! He drags Akari into a tour, and Akari drags Alice along for practice. Bonding occurs until Akatsuki finally meets up with his brother. Alice manages to loosen up a bit and it is suitably cute. Dunno if she is intended to read as autism spectrum but that is my headcanon until further notice.

FFVII: Completed the remaining floors of the Shirna HQ building, and finished off the boss list that came with it, four bosses [1. Hojo's test subject, 2. the dual boss encounter on the elevator down, 3. Rufus, and 4. the machine at the end of the road before escaping Midgar] basically all within a span of an hour, the game really goes all out in your exit from Midgar to the world map!

Some of those areas were pretty short though.

SSBU is a ton of fun so far! I have unfortunately not gotten my intended main (Incineroar) but I have snagged most of the other people I particularly wanted! I am terrible at Ridley, but I've been really happy with a lot of other people I didn't expect to play well. Unfortunately I am not getting anywhere trying to make Jigglypuff a thing, and Sheik just ain't clicking like she used to, but it seems like Isabelle, the Belmonts, G&W, and maybe even K Rool or Bowser might fill some secondary slots.

I enjoyed the MLP Special a lot, plenty of fun and crazy things to like in it! Speaking of gifts, I've still got a few things left to purchase as well. Hurray Holidays?

I liked the family that Rarity visited at the Acorn farm. Derpy/Muffins [depending on which name you use] getting a shipping address wrong once more. Typical of the Holiday time, especially when the volume of orders going out/in can get so overwhelming for post offices.
