Pokemon Omega Ruby: Day 11

Posted by Ektris , in Video Games Dec 21 2014 · 34 views
Pokemon, Omega Ruby, Ruby
I'm back, baby! (Although technically I came back yesterday, I just forgot to blog about it.)

I literally have not touched Omega Ruby since I left off. The first thing I did to prepare for it wasn't even in that game - I fired up Y again (and did some training for Pokémon I forgot about first) and bred a Jolly Synchronizer. I am not going through that again for Rayquaza. Deoxys I'll just beat and attempt again later. I also bought another year of Bank, but haven't done any of the transferring yet. That'll be done before I'm actually ready to catch him.

So I had some more air travel to get through. This time, fortunately, I actually did more than soft reset heh. I did a lot of travelling through the water routes I ignored before, which was kind of fun (game still has too much though). That included rediscovering the Sea Mauville, which I had completely forgotten existed. Shame I can't get Lugia in this game, though.

But most importantly, I did a lot of Episode Delta. I think. And man, Zinnia is just a massive creep. I'm totally more on her side of things than Steven's... But she comes across as a huge creep spying on you though. I also really don't like that they made Steven's character mindlessly follow the scientists... whose grand scheme appears to be something so dumb as "Hey remember that weapon that killed a ton of Pokémon? Let's make it again but instead fuel it by humans. Seems better right??" At least that's how I've interpreted it. We're getting the full story scattered through different conversations filling in each other's blanks, which doesn't seem like great storytelling in my opinion, so maybe I misinterpreted something... But at least the big picture is clear. Big meteor. Want warp away. (To the original Hoenn??? Sweet reference.) Big dragon. Summon instead.

Regardless, it's a much, much more interesting postgame than the Looker one from X and Y. Still doesn't make up for also cutting what I'd have really liked to have included (*coughcoughBattleFrontiercoughcough*), but it's something.

I left off about to go into Team Magma's base again. Guess that's why it didn't blow up the first time lol. Or maybe it won't at all so as to not punish those who missed the Master Ball like the originals... That was kind of harsh.

Team:

Hashirama, Sceptile Lv. 62
Sigurd, Flygon Lv. 60
Glalie, Lv. 60
Abyss, Sharpedo Lv. 58
Altair, Swellow Lv. 56
Latios, Lv. 55

Oh, and I only passed one person who had Streetpass enabled for the game, but I didn't get an Eon Ticket from them. Little worried still my game did glitch and I might not get it again. :(

And! I caught my first shiny in Omega Ruby! Found a shiny Zubat in Granite Cave while coming out from getting Steelixite and the meteor shards.

RROD & Other Gaming Stuff

(Pokémon blogs generally on hiatus until I start Episode Delta, which probably won't be for a few weeks when I'm home for the holidays and have no access to my consoles. For now I suppose I'll be resuming Unity, maybe some MCC or Smash WiiU.)

Wow. After 7 years, my Xbox 360 Elite finally received the Red Ring of Death. I was well under way in Assassin's Creed: Rogue, likely to be the last game I got for the system (and why my fiancé thinks I shouldn't bother with it anymore *sigh*), when it suddenly shorted. Sort of ironic given the first game to grace its disk drive was the original Assassin's Creed game shortly after its release, one cold December 25, 2007 morning.

I spent so, so many countless hours on her. The first console I could call my own. The device that took a childhood passing interest into a real hobby.

Now I must decide her fate. Do I purchase a new 360, with necessary hard drive transfer cable and sufficient space on the console itself, at a considerable price? Or risk sending it in for repair, which I am somewhat nervous about doing? It would still cost a pretty penny, but not a few pennies like the other option.

Part of my concern is mostly anxiety induced as I've actually never mailed a package shockingly, don't even know where I would mail from here (haven't a clue where the nearest post office, FedEx office, UPS office, or whatever option they would require is), plus how do I know I've properly secured it if I can even find a box that it will fit in comfortably (actually might have a perfectly sized one right behind me from some goods received the other day...). So all generally irrational, but nonetheless make me nervous.

And if I do opt for a repair, I'd probably have to wait until the start of the year, as timing makes me even more nervous - what if it got back while I was out of town for the holidays? That's two weeks it could either be sitting outside my apartment or end up who knows where if it ends up in the office (where packages are supposed to, but sometimes inexplicably get dropped off at doors, like the one I got over Thanksgiving...) since they're only willing to hold things for 2 days over the holidays. And that wait would drive me even crazier...

*sigh*
