mikaristar: Peachy, Pikachu, Pokemon (Rules)
June 10 - I'm fighting the assassin next. He's strong. I need more defense, but I'm so done grinding. In this game you only get a certain amount of chances to grind and after you're done that's it, if you want more levels you have to load an old save. That's what I don't like about it. There's an anti grind system that changes the exp to make grinding easier, but at times it also makes it harder because you get less exp the higher your level is. That aside it's a fun game, that and the introduction were the only things I didn't like. Otherwise I've been playing it a lot. I'll try that assassin fight again... Apparently there are different plots if you save Rin or Rani? I choose to save Rani, though Rin also survives. Makes me wonder if adding the girl character was a last minute decision as it doesn't seem like the narration was made specifically for her. Is there even a different version or is it just a generic narration for the guy and the girl?

June 11 - By now it's pretty obvious that they didn't revise the script much for the girl character. Archer "that was a dick move master" *rants about how one should eat the food a woman has cooked for them* Um... Archer... your master's a girl, how dense could you be? If you want her to be all lovey about a home cooked meal go cook for her yourself, stupid. lol at Rani stealing Xellos' quote http://i362.photobucket.com/albums/oo69/mikaristar/extra/fateextra2.png it's funnier that she also has purple hair and eyes. XD

June 12 - I had to use one of my elixirs to beat Rin because her Lancer had an instant kill. It's not like the "near-dead will die in next hit" ability of Julius' Assassin, I could just heal Archer after that. This was an "always dies" sort of ability... unless I nullified it, but I couldn't do that if I didn't know when he was going to do it. My strategy was to not fight. I didn't fight, I killed him. I went all out, turn 1 power boots, turns 2 and 3 attack, attack, attack, then the Lancer was dead. No real strategy, no exchange of attacks, just desperate kill mode, the RPG equivalent of button mashing. Now I need to fight Leo... but Julius' ghost is lurking around too.

June 13 - Just a little more training and I'll be ready to take on Leo. Just got Archer's matrix to E level and learned his story. His old philosophy sucked, loyalty over justice! At least he's not that stupid hero of justice anymore and has now become cool. I still like him best out of all the characters in this game. Lancer (Rin's) is cool too.

June 14 - I need one more level to feel ready to face Leo in Fate Extra. I got Archer's defense up to survive the Julius fight but now he's in need of agility and attack power. I want to get those stats up so I can do a fast kill on Leo before he has the chance to do much. It seems that in these last few fights, Rin and beyond, fighting is not actually an option, berserk kill mode is the only means of survival. No strategy, just sadism... works for me. There are quite a few Fate games, I'll have to check the PSN and see what they have for the PSP. I also have Gurumin already purchased that I need to download. Unfortunately I can't get Reno (PSP) to connect from work, though I know the password is fine because Xellos (iPod) connects without even having to be told to do so. Maybe Reno is simply old... he is a 3000... but he connects from home where my data is limited because after dealing with crappy internet I just have to get the expensive one... Oh well, I'll just have to pay the fee if I go over this month. I did last month but instead of asking for a fee they passed the data to this month which is cheaper, but let's face it, I'll probably go over and end up paying the fee anyway, which I don't mind, I just want my data consumption to stabilize. It's not like I asked for "second chance" not to go over. Back to Fate Extra it's funny how in some parts it says "her" and the character actually sounds like a girl, such as her "enchantment" with Julius. Then in other parts they didn't modify the script such as Archer calling her a "d*ck" and admitting "that took balls to say".
