Surviving Extermination


Some new (old) RPGs

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Jul 31 2015 · 79 views

Just grabbed Dragon Quest V and Radiant Historia for DS off of Amazon, am now waiting for them to ship.

Man I've wanted Radiant Historia ever since it came out and I'm finally going to have it weeeee

As far as Dragon Quest V, it'll be my second DQ game (after Dragon Quest IX in 2010), so I'm looking forward to it. If I enjoy it, I'll try and pick up both IV and VI and then cry about the remakes for VII and VIII not being in NA.


Nintendo at E3

Posted by Lucina , in Collection, Video Games Jun 16 2015 · 42 views

My thoughts:

Star Fox Zero - looks pretty fun. I imagine the Smash amiibo for Fox and Falco will both work with it in some fashion. I'm looking forward to trying it out.

Yo-Kai Watch - Haven't played anything in this series before, probably won't start now.

Super Mario Maker - Obviously I want this. Who doesn't? You can make your own Mario levels! Heck yeah! Also, that special 8-Bit Mario amiibo is amaaaaazing~
EDIT: oh god the amiibo has two different versions whyyyyy

Yoshi's Woolly World - The game is adorable, what more do you want? Those amiibo too

Hyrule Warriors Legends - What little I've played of Hyrule Warriors on Wii U was pretty fun. I doubt I'll pick this up but if my brother does I'll give it a go.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes - This one is a mixed bag. I LOVE A Link Between Worlds so it's pretty awesome to see its mechanics seemingly being re-used for a new title. However, I'm not sold on this game yet; the multiplayer focus might take away from the tightly focused gameplay of ALBTW.

Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival - So we finally have a game that requires amiibo in order to play, and it's... Animal Crossing... as a Mario Party-type game? With only four compatible Animal Crossing amiibo? Huh? I mean at least it's only four more amiibo that I must aim to collect somehow, but still. Hopefully they'll announce some sort of crossover with the Mario-series amiibo or something.
E: Looks like it's 8 amiibo. Poo. RIP my wallet.

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer - I don't want the game, but I must point out that I was, up until this point, unaware that I existed in the Animal Crossing universe. I was included in E3, suckers!

Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water - Meh. Never played this series, probably never will.

Earthbound Beginnings - I understand where the hype is coming from, but this is another game I will never play. I will continue to support your campaign for Mother 3 regardless.

Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash - The game that will get me to stop collecting amiibo. I'm not spending $60 on a game I don't even want just for the plastic figure. Screeeeeeeeew that.

Xenoblade Chronicles X - I dunno. Honestly I'm feeling really "meh" about this game. But it's also friggin' massive and with my lack of time, I do prefer games that don't consume all of my time these days.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force - Literally the biggest letdown.

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash - Meh.

Mario & Sonic - Also meh.

Genei Ibun Roku #FE - I saw some Fire Emblem characters with radical redesigns. To be honest, not excited for this at all.

Fire Emblem Fates - I honestly preferred the Fire Emblem If title. Not sure where I stand on this; I don't want to have to buy the game three times just to get the full experience. >.>



I mean I know that Sticker Star totally sucked and that Dream Team was a mess overloaded with tutorials so please, please, please let this be a return to form. It's obviously more Mario & Luigi than it is Paper Mario but still

I mean it looks really fun and oh my gosh

Please follow this up with a proper Paper Mario sequel in the future pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease

Skylanders Superchargers - Those Donkey Kong & Bowser amiibo look totally rad and I want them give them to me now


Thanks a Bunch! =D

Shout out to Luroka for the Mega Man amiibo (finally finally FINALLY I can have a Mega Man amiibo in SSB and take pictures of him all the time he's my fav) and JMJ for Splatoon (I've played a bit so far and it's extremely fun).

It made yesterday a bit better since my appointment kind of ruined the day otherwise haha so thanks to you both!


3DS + Amiibo

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games, Collection Jun 10 2015 · 30 views

So Hyrule Warriors has been leaked for 3DS. I am excited; I enjoyed the game enough on the Wii U, but I feel like it's the kind of experience that I'll appreciate more on the 3DS.

My custom Inkling Boy amiibo arrived in the mail today! I like it.
(Now I just need Splatoon)


Lego Worlds

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Jun 05 2015 · 31 views

I kind of really want it

But I also really want Splatoon

So I guess I'll just wait for both


The hype is real

Posted by Lucina , in Collection, Life, Video Games Apr 09 2015 · 189 views

I'm working on convincing my parents to buy it for my brothers since

A: I won't have the money
B: I won't be at home anyway
C: My brothers will like the game for the game, as well as the collecting of figures o__o


I got more amiibo! ?

Managed to preorder the Splatoon triple pack online with Ness, Wario and Pac-Man today from EB Games! Now I must simply hope that they do not cancel my preorders sometime in the next two months.

If any of you have King Dedede, Meta Knight, or Shulk, I'd be willing to buy them off of you. :)


Amiibo Update

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games, Life Mar 26 2015 · 131 views

I have two 50% off coupons for GAME, and as such was browsing; found Wario available for preorder, so I grabbed him and decided to pick up Toad at the same time. It wasn't too expensive; probably came to about 3 or 4 dollars more than I would have paid to get them from a store in North America.

Except GAME has proven far more useful and reliable in terms of actually having amiibo available so I'm okay with paying a bit extra.

EDIT: Of course, I post this blog entry and GAME has cancelled my order for whatever reason, although they did not charge me. But still.
(Stupid Canadian stores) (Stupid every store)

I am no longer favored by the Amiibo gods ;__;

If any of you have an unopened Shulk, King Dedede or Meta Knight amiibo that you wouldn't mind parting with, I am open to purchasing them off of you.


I have good news

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Mar 20 2015 · 205 views

So I did not play Super Smash Bros. for Wii U for awhile

But then I started playing again and Gerald my Luigi Amiibo is a force of furious, unforgiving destruction

I also forced myself to play as a bunch of different characters and I am now slowly becoming good with Lucina

These are the good tidings that I bring

I also bring a grave warning

Gerald plots to rule the world

I fear he shall soon succeed


One day, I'll remember (Updated)

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Feb 07 2015 · 260 views

UPDATED FEBRUARY 7TH: After the Final Battle

"One day, I'll remember. Remember everything that happened. The good, the bad; those who survived... and those that did not." - Bilbo Baggins

Wise words, Pilbo Dragons. Words to live by - as such, let us bow our heads in remembrance of those who have fallen in my quest to save the world from Grima's wrath.
Note that some of the characters are technically "retired", but to me they're dead like everyone else so yes.

Class: Villager
Family: Mother - alive and well back in their village
Died: Border Pass

After helping Chrom to save his village, Donnel joined the Shepards; his first mission was to join the party at the Border Pass, where Maribelle was being held captive by the Mad King Gangrel in an attempt to instigate war with Ylisse. Halfway through the battle, Donnel sacrificed himself in order to buy both Ricken and Maribelle enough time to reunite with the rest of the group. He is remembered by Ricken, who has since become one of the most powerful members of the Shepards, and his mother remains alive and well (albeit now depressed) back at home.

Class: Dancer
Family: None Known
Died: Border Wastes

Working under Khan Basilio, Olivia's dancing was so magical that it could inspire her fellow troops in battle to become more powerful on the spot. She joined the Shepards for their final battle with the Mad King Gangrel, where she was unfortunately struck down by the Mad King himself in his fury. She was quickly avenged by the combined duo of Chrom and the Avatar, although her time with the Shepards was so short that few even remember her.

Class: Cavalier
Family: Sully (Wife; Deceased), Kjelle (Daughter); alive with Shepards
Died: Mercenary Fortress

When the Shepards discovered the Mercenary Fortress, both Sully and Stahl were assigned to the team escorting the mysterious girl called Severa through its halls as she tried to reach her friend. While Severa managed to achieve her goals, the three of them found themselves surrounded soon afterward. With the rest of the Shepards too far away to help them, Stahl bravely took on the band of heartless rogues, sacrificing himself so that Sully and Severa could make it away unharmed. Having been good friends with most Shepards and liked by the rest, Stahl's passing has been widely mourned. Both Sully and Kjelle have vowed to vanquish any rogues they come across, while Ricken and Owain appear to have made it their personal mission to keep both Sully and Severa safe at all costs, so that Stahl's sacrifice might not be in vain.

Stahl was the first of what many refer to as the "great heroes" to fall; being one of the strongest Shepards, his death has shaken the group to its core, and has served as a reminder to all that nobody is safe from the deathly claws of fate.

Class: Troubadour
Family: Ricken (Husband; Deceased), Brady (Son); alive with Shepards
Died: The Midmire

Maribelle's death might be the most tragic yet to befall the Shepards; what should have been an ordinary journey through the Midmire just like any other turned out to be a Risen ambush. During the battle, Maribelle was forced to separate from Ricken in order to save the lives of Sumia and Henry; she paid for it when a Risen buried its axe in her back, killing her instantly. Her son Brady, who had only just joined the Shepards, has been consumed by guilt; her husband Ricken has since been on a vengeful mission to keep his son alive, as well as honoring the memory of Stahl by protecting Sully.

As a good friend of both Chrom and Lissa (particularly the latter), the higher ranks of the Shepards have been in mourning since her passing; Sumia in particular feels guilty about her continued survival.

Well, I managed to make it to the final battle without losing anyone else... unfortunately, one does not defeat a god without suffering casualties. Three of the Shepards' greatest fell in the final strike on Grima.

Class: Cavalier
Family: Stahl (Husband; Deceased), Kjelle (Daughter; Alive with Shepards)
Died: Final Battle with Grima

When the time came for the final showdown against Grima, Sully refused to miss it - besides, the only other options were to send in Lady Tiki or Severa, both of which Sully immediately shot down. Having grown extremely close to Ricken, she partnered with the sage for the battle. The two of them worked directly alongside Vaike & Lissa, Cordelia & Gaius, and the Khan team of Basilio & Flavia while the others went on the offensive. At first it seemed as though they had overestimated Grima's power; however, it soon became obvious that they had actually underestimated the demon dragon. The defensive line lost sight of Lon'qu & Cherche as they were swarmed, and soon lost contact with Lucina & Gerome as well. Before they could move to a more offensive approach, they were surrounded by Grimleal.

Vaike was the enemy's first target, although he managed to barely survive their onslaught. Cordelia and Gaius also narrowly survived several hard hits and were forced to retreat further away from the Grimleal archers, leaving Sully, Ricken and the Khans to hold off the horde. When the Khans were separated from the rest of the group, Sully bravely fought until her final breath, holding the Grimleal off long enough for the others to recover. Unfortunately, she soon perished from her many wounds.

Class: Cavalier
Family: Maribelle (Wife; Deceased), Brady (Son; Alive with Shepards)
Died: Final Battle with Grima

The argument between Ricken and Henry before the final battle would have been legendary had it not been overshadowed by the threat of Grima hanging over them. Both knew that whoever joined the strike team atop the fell dragon's back out of the two of them would perish in the battle, as they would need to overexert themselves to dangerous levels to hold off whatever enemies the fell dragon called forth. Ricken eventually won the argument, reminding Henry that his wife Sumia still survived; before leaving, he made Henry promise to look after Brady for him. Ricken partnered once more with Sully for the final battle, having grown very close to her. The two of them worked directly alongside Vaike & Lissa, Cordelia & Gaius, and the Khan team of Basilio & Flavia while the others went on the offensive.

When they were surrounded by the Grimleal and forced to defend the others after the Khans became separated from the group, Ricken used his magic to devastating effect upon the enemy, dealing massive damage to the horde. Unfortunately, once Sully perished, he was unable to last for long; in his final moment, he unleashed a hurricane wind that blasted the enemy Grimleal far across the fell dragon's back, giving Vaike, Lissa, Cordelia and Gaius the precious seconds that they needed to regroup and go on the offensive.

While the bodies of the other fallen Shepards were recovered after the battle, Ricken's body was nowhere to be seen; a slight few hold onto a desperate hope that he might have actually survived, but most hold the more realistic opinion that his body was simply destroyed by the force of the magic he used.

Class: Warrior
Family: None Known; Fellow Khan Flavia & Apprentice Lon'qu both alive
Died: Final Battle with Grima

Having earlier faked his death after heeding the advice of Lucina, Basilio cleverly remained hidden until the time was ripe, allowing the Avatar to reclaim the Fire Emblem and spare Chrom, conquering history, time, and destiny in the process. This move forced almost everyone to change how they looked at Basilio, proving to them that he was far more crafty than he first seemed. When the time came to strike at Grima one last time, Basilio partnered with Flavia and led the defensive line.

The battle took a grim turn for the worse when Vaike, Cordelia and Gaius were all momentarily out for the count. Together with Sully & Ricken, the two Khans held off the horde, allowing their allies time to recover; unfortunately, the two Khans became separated from the rest of the group in the process. Wisely deciding to keep on the move, the two Khans managed to make contact with Lucina & Gerome from afar before they were swarmed; Basilio fought with a ferocity that only one who had beaten death itself could summon. Unfortunately, even that was not enough, and Basilio was overcome by the sheer number of enemies attacking him from all sides. He was pierced by a fatal arrow just as Lucina & Gerome reached them.

As he lay dying, Basilio requested that Lon'qu be named as the new West-Khan of Ferox in his place. When informed of Basilio's final request by Flavia hours later, Lon'qu accepted the position in honor of his fallen mentor and friend.
That's it for my first playthrough of Fire Emblem: Awakening! RIP Stahl, Sully, Ricken and Basilio. You will be missed.
The others... not so much.
