Doesn't look like there's any way to access a backlog at all in AAT. Tried every button on my controller and nothing popped up, and there's not an option for it in the menu either.

well I'm not sure who I'm committing to at this point because I do like Laura so far but I like Emma's archetype too

although really biker chick is probably straight up the hottest girl thus far and I'd be more into teacher if she weren't a raging alcoholic because I like her personality type otherwise

Finished second investigation of the old schoolhouse, and Rean finally ran into the black cat who keeps appearing after we come out, although it scratches him after he pets it. Emma freaks out about the wound, for whatever the reason, which is pretty suspicious. I also found the bonus sidequest and was victimized by Vivi's prank.

Aced that second practical exam, but the other group struggled to get by. With the next field study, I get to team up with everyone I haven't used yet (and Machias, but that was pretty brief), and we're off to Bareahard, nicknamed the Verdant City. I'd guess the tensions between Jusis and Machias will finally come to a head here and Rean will have to find a way to be the mediator.

No, you have to lose.

If you do come in with carried over levels and stuff, what ends up happening is she can be reduced to 1 HP but that last HP won't go. And her attacks all of a sudden ramp up to do 49999 damage in a game where you're not getting anywhere near that number... and they break through Adamantite Shield (Cold Steel's Earth Wall) too so you can't even try and stalemate her.

man it feels like I never have enough money for anything

also I can't wait for this Machias/Jusis dispute to be settled so Machias can hopefully become something other than "dude who gets angry at nobles all the time"

Yeah, Cold Steel is pretty tight on money. There's an infinite money trick involving having Elliot becoming an omelet kingpin but it can get tedious. (The very first recipe you get, Simple Omelet, can be sold for a profit if you have Elliot cook it. That said... you need Elliot in your party which means you ideally want to be on a Field Study with him, although you could use the Old Schoolhouse on a Free Day to put him in your party... but then you need to exit/enter to get to the shops and ugh. And in your current situation you just have no access to Elliot at all so yeah.)

I didn't think you'd be interested in the trick (you basically sit in front of a shop to buy the ingredients, then cook, then sell/re-buy ingredients until you're satisfied.)

99 Omelets generally comes out to a ~1800 mira profit. And if you're committed you can make 400-500k/hour like this to give you an idea of how fast/slow it is.

Other than that, your best option is really just to fight. You aren't paid for sidequests like in Sky (unless mira/Sepith Mass is the reward which is rare) so acquiring and selling Sepith Mass is basically it. You can still exchange the element type Sepith but obviously you may want that for quartz and unlocking slots.

Well, with quick travel, that's not too bad.

I generally hate grinding, but I don't want to fall too far behind the enemies because I can't afford good equipment either. It feels like everything you can sell barely sells for anything either, regardless of how much they charged you for it.

Case 2 in DGS2 beated. I really didn't like the first quarter or so of the case. Did they really have to bring Souseki back? I didn't like him in DGS1, and he wasn't any better in either of the first two cases in 2. But then it basically changes to focus on some entirely different stuff and gets much better. All the gas related stuff was very cool. Definitely better than the first case by the end!

Well, based on that I'm assuming it's your first time watching the movies, but is it your first experience with the series in general/haven't read the books?

They were a pretty big part of my younger life! Generally speaking I think the movies get better as they go on. Prisoner of Azkaban (3rd Movie/Book) is pretty much the turning point IMO, it's just great.

The first two HP movies were my favorites until 7 and 8. I like the books much better in general.

HP3 in movie form is hilarious if you look at Lupin as a pedophile though. His lines just fit so well.

I've never read the books and had never seen any of the movies before this weekend. She's a huge Harry Potter fan, so I knew I would have to watch them with her sooner or later.

Yeah the books are noticeably better I think, though the movies are also good.

Also generally agree that the movies got better as they went on, with the exception that I thought they did a really good job with the first movie.

Well, yeah, I too prefer the books, but given the movies had to work with time constraints I think they did a good job for the most part in adapting them.

I was almost ready to cheer when Harry said "Never try to save me again." It was pretty close to "Go away and never come back," which is how I felt at the time.

I thought we were almost ready for Jusis and Machias to bury the hatchet during the extermination request, but alas.

Okay, I did Joker's Classic Mode, and that was super cool. They literally played Beneath the Mask when you fought Meta Knight. Well played.

And the boss fight against Master Hand/Crazy Hand was on Mementos as Yaldaboth played.
