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".

April 17 - Since I'm writing ahead, I'm close to reaching the final chapters of my Slayers story. So close, I feel accomplished. Just a little more, then some revisions and this long story will be done! The layouts for the fansite are already done, I just need to set up the fanart and the other pages aside from the fanfic. Aunt Mari came for a short visit today. She and aunt Cindy are my two cool aunts, some of the few members of my family that I actually get along with, though Mari isn't related to me by blood, it doesn't matter. It's not as cold today as in the last few days. Reno (PSP 3000)'s charger is officially dead. No amount of twisting the cable will make it work anymore. Fortunately I have a USB MiniB cable I can use to charge him.

April 18 - Almost done with my Slayers story, writing it, not posting it. It will have over 100 chapters. I'll post the chapter title list as soon as I'm done with the revisions. I'm revising chapter 11 now, just finished. I'll do two revisions from 100-150 and an extra third revision of 140-150 because those are the newest that I haven't revised as many times yet. I revised by listening to the stories, so I'll have time to color fanarts while I do. Then after this is done I have a requested Slayers story to write, then the Pokemon story to revise twice. Web design revamps go next and finally a new story... possibly Estpolis, Dekar-centric, of course. I already have an idea for it... The main theme will be adventure.

April 19 - I'm at work right now. I was prepared for boredom, but this is super easy. There's a TV, there's unblocked internet. Yay! I'm glad I came after all. I have another email that I use to log in from outside connections so as to not risk my "real" email, I'm sending all this to myself using it. Anyway I was going to rant, but cancel that, I'm comfy getting paid to write a fic and watch a movie. All I need to do is write the names & ID numbers of everyone who goes out to the runway, press the button to open the door and pick up the phone, but all of that is quiet most of the time and sometimes a whole hour goes by and I don't need to do anything. :D

April 20 - Congratulations Snow! http://amassment.livejournal.com/155971.html It makes me so happy when a site I nominated wins. ^_^ Congratulations on graduating too! Lots of happy things happy things happening, yes? May there be many more!

Real life conversations:

March 26 - Evening

Mom: "Is the flight leaving normally today or are you staying at work late? Can I see that map you look at with the little airplane?"

Me: (cranky) "I don't have internet!"

March 27 - Afternoon

Mom: "Could you check the lottery numbers?"

Me: (crankier) "I don't have internet! And you never win anything anyway!"

FYI mother, my computer is not cable of magically producing information without an internet connection.

March 29 - Afternoon

Dad: "How's the new internet?"

Me: "Good."

Dad: "Does it have different things as the old one?"

Me: "...It's the same internet, just a new connection."

Dad: "Are you used to it yet?"

Me: "...yes"

FYI father... I don't even know what to say.

At least dad seems to have a (very) vague idea of what the internet is. Mother thinks the whole net is magically inside my computer... all of it. Seriously, who has a HD that big?!

Blogs:

Mar 29 (Night) - Reno's charger is dead. If I twist it around it charges, but it's not enough. I couldn't finish downloading from the PSN because his battery died even if the cable was plugged. I need a new charger... Or maybe a new PSP... but I need to save the money first because my wifi was expensive. D:

Mar 30 (Afternoon) - Yesterday Reno's battery failed when my game was at 90% from the PSN. The data was corrupted and I wasted 500MB of internet that I'll still need to pay for. Man this "pay for quality" approach I took with my connection will take some getting used to. It wasn't the internet's fault though, it was Reno's charger failure. If I twist the cable around enough it starts to charge...
