Yeah, it's a really cool concept

Fooled around with it a bit. I'm probably more like a third of the way through it, not halfway.

careful, that kind of line is the one that starts a roadtrip comedy where all the roads are gridlocked or closed and it becomes a race against time to make it

Baldur's Gate 2: omg lol some of the stuff you can do in this game/series remains incredible. So there's this shopkeeper affiliated with an organization one of my party members at the time absolutely loathed. To the point where even trying to do business with them would prompt her to leave the party if you insist on it instead of walking away like she demands.

The "simple" solution would be to switch her out of the party, but I was struck by some curiosity. First I moved her really far away from the rest of the group (this actually works sometimes in other situations where an NPC asks to discuss something without someone in particular in earshot), didn't work though, she could interject from across the area.

So I decided I had to get creative and my first thought was to "disable" her somehow like with Confusion because that makes them un-selectable during the duration so I figured it might count as them "not being there" but unfortunately none of the spells I had on hand would affect party members, just enemies. At this point I was about to shrug and decide the game was insistent on not allowing this... until the friendly fire situation reminded me that I absolutely have one spell that would work on my own team... "Silence 15' radius" a spell that inflicts Silence on... everyone in a 15 foot radius, friend or foe, usually good for making groups of enemy spellcasters useless. I wonder, "Well, hypothetically and by game mechanics lore, silence is literal silence, you can't speak. She shouldn't be able to interject with her protest if she's under silence!" And it worked! The shopkeeper reverted to his dialogue as if she wasn't there and I could buy/sell. Of course the final hurdle was if the game was so super prepared that I'd get a "What the hell" from her once silence ended and she could speak again. To speed it up, I dispelled it from her... and it was the perfect crime; I got away with it.

lol I love the wacky stuff I can do in Baldur's Gate. I kinda wish you could use these out-of-the-box solutions more often.

I did a few fights on the Persona 5 special spirit board, and I love that they bring in other characters to represent the Personas as well. My favorite is Makoto's Persona being represented by invisible Wario on his motorcycle.

One week until my qualifying exam

In principle I think I should be fine (normally people take it in their third or fourth year, but a nonnegligible fraction of people put it off until near the end of the program if their advisor doesn't force them to do it on time), though my advisor hasn't given me much guidance so I'm paranoid abut being blindsided by something I didn't prepare for.

Yeah, I always had nerves about being hit with something I hadn't studied for, but I'm sure you'll be fine! Best of luck!

Thanks!

I'm usually pretty good at taking tests; the issue is mostly that the amount of material I could potentially be responsible for is very broad, so in the absence of my advisor giving me a list of stuff to study I'm kinda left guessing at what would be considered fair game. Luckily they don't expect you to get everything perfect, so being blindsided on one question would probably be fine unless it shot my nerves and snowballed. I do have a presentation from a few weeks ago that went well and which I'm adapting for the research talk component of the exam, though I need to cut out probably like... 60% of it for it to fit in time and give me room for whatever "future goals" junk I need to add.

How they try to represent different characters with the spirit battles is pretty fun. I wish there were more FF spirits Damn it.

Yeah, one of the most disappointing things about Smash Ultimate is the general lack of Final Fantasy representation, but I know that's not Sakurai's fault.

Also, I feel partially responsible for perhaps speaking this cursed project into existence but apparently ESPN is going to have a 9-part Brady documentary next year.

why

(I actually think if you could get Belichick to keep it 100 he would be the far more interesting subject of such a documentary.)

Well, yeah, that too.

I like to think they're trolling him by saying it's 9 parts for each of the 9 Super Bowl appearances and implying they believe he has no chance this year (or any future year.)

they deflated the episode count for historical accuracy

F/GO: Man between the Murder Mystery Event and finishing up Pseudo-Singularity I I witnessed a ton of betrayaltons just now. Shinjuku Singularity was nice and short and pretty effortless as well. I did use Command Seals on the second-to-last battle with Moriarty + Demon Pillar but that was more because "why not" and since I no longer have the 1/2 AP bonus I had in Arc 1 retries would feel more painful. Everything else I just one-try'd (and I mean technically the Command Seal battle was one try as well but y'know.) Avenger doggo cut it close though.
