About this blog

Use the Azure Flute already

Entries in this blog

 

The Original One

August isn’t a fun month, is it? Usually means back to school, if you’re in school.   But this August, you can get your very own Arceus just by going to GameStop! That’s right, just stop by your local game store, ask the employee at the counter for a neat little card with a serial number, and you get the Pokémon who created the Pokémon world (or maybe just Sinnoh)!   I won’t lie to you, part of me’s still angry this doesn’t involve the Azure Flute in some way. But you probably guessed that.

Thoughts Wanted, Inquire Within For Pay Rates

A thing I saw on social media prompted this and I thought I’d just throw it up to see what happens. Asking random questions is a popular thing here in the blogs, yes?   Suppose you’re leading a makeshift Toa team, and you can choose the main character of up to five things (TV show, movie, book, anime, game, whatever). What does your team look like? Bonus points if you can work out actual team dynamics or even Kaita.   The only catch is you’re not allowed to choose Goku/DBZ.   Deliberate.

Technic Tournament 4 Feedback

Avak ended up winning Technic Tournament 4 in 3D, and even wrested the Title away from that wretched sharkface Barraki! At least one thing had a satisfying ending today!   Since there was even less demand than usual this time, it’ll probably be a little while before I run Technic Tournament 5 Ocarina of Majora’s Twilight. However, while this game is fresh in your minds, I want to get an idea of what can be improved on, since I’d like more than just a new roster to justify another game.   Tourn

A Request

So I don't know if I've said it over here, but I have a pet parakeet! His name is Zazu and he is beautiful and smart and I love him.   He's been limping for about a week so I took him to the vet this morning, and it appears he has little to no feeling in his left leg. The doctor says this is likely a sign of a tumor. We have some medicine for him, though I doubt he's going to enjoy taking it, but unfortunately there really isn't a whole lot to be done and tumors apparently get parakeets after

Technic Tournament: The Comeback

(No, that’s not the new title of the game.)   I know I said the next tournament would be up a few months ago, but stuff came up and I just wasn’t feeling up to running it. Sorry about that.   But, I think I’m ready again, plus now I can say I’m doing it to celebrate BZP’s anniversary.   So, Technic Tournament 4 in 3D will begin on Wednesday, July 20th! As usual, you can join whenever you want, but joining in the first round gives you the best chance at success—and this time, each round only la

Fish Fry

I was playing Unchained's latest update today and encountered a Trident Tail Omega. Level 1 so it wasn't too bad, but I am a bit puzzled.   Now, Trident Tail has an interesting design, and the general color scheme of the Omega works I guess, but...     Did you really need to paint flames on it...?

Sequel On!

About five months after the first one ended, I’m finally ready to start Shooting Star Sonia 2: Tribe!   This might’ve been out a little sooner if not for computer troubles (which seem to be doing much better, thank God) and standard-issue distractions…and Kingdom Hearts Unchained X…but anyway, I got a bit of a headstart before deciding to post the first chapter, so hopefully updates will be regular for at least a little while. For now the schedule is every other week, so expect Chapter 2 on the

Well This is a Complicated Emotion

Apparently volume 73 of Bleach just came out in Japan, and it states that volume 74 will be the last. With how many chapters are usually put into volumes and how many have already been serialized in Jump, estimates are saying that there are five chapters left in the series.   Haaaaaaaaaaaaaang on   Now I know I’m on record as frequently saying I want Bleach to end, and I do, but with the point the series is currently at as of last week? If we only have five more chapters to go then I only see

Irresponsible Children Wielding Magic Keys

The NA version of Unchained just got to the point where the story really gets started!   …And most people are upset that the new character, known in Japan as Ephemera, is now being called Ephemer in the translation.   PRIORITIES!   What baffles me more is that a few missions before that they show your character sleeping and don’t bother changing their outfit at all. I wear a jetpack. I was lying in my bed wearing a jetpack that flared to life every few seconds. How did my bed not catch on fir

The Sky Warrior

Would I July to you about this?   Shaymin is available over Mystery Gift right now! And I’m sure there’s some way of getting the item to change its forms in XY and ORAS, but I don’t really care enough to look up what it is right now.   This is especially momentous for me because Shaymin was, aside from Volcanion (and then there’s Sun and Moon but y’know), the only Pokémon my Living Dex was missing. So I now have 720 Pokémon, and can achieve that same number in any Gen VI game simply through tr

Kingdom Hearts Theory Attempt

This is probably poorly organized but what the heck. Spoilers obviously, mainly pertaining to X and its variations though it also deals with Master Xehanort's plans, which is more of a BBS/3D thing. Also refers to the second secret ending of the Re:coded cinematic in 2.5, but that's the only interesting thing about that story so I don't feel bad if I spoil that.   So if Master Xehanort’s Keyblade is “the most ancient Keyblade in existence”, then the most logical assumption is that it was made by

An Inconspicuous Vent

Dramatic Personal Life Nonsense You Should Really Just Ignore I hate my job I hate my job I hate my job I hate my job Sundays are awful. Closing is awful. Closing on Sundays is awful enough, but then someone calls in 20 minutes before we close saying they want a catering order for tomorrow at 11:30 AM, we call the caterer at home and she says she’ll do it, and we end up having to stay late to cut 12 pounds of meat and cheese for this idiot, and I’m just not entirely sure how to put my curr

It Just Keeps Going 2 (The Exhaustion Is Real)

Yeah, ranting about Bleach again. Maybe I should just come up with a standard title for these entries so those skimming by know what it’s going to be without actually looking…oh, what if I did one every week and called it Laundry Day? You know, cause…you use bleach…in laundry…

Now That's What I Call Unchained! (Update!)

Kingdom Hearts Unchained X is doing a bunch of special events to celebrate the new II.8 trailer and demo at E3, as well as being released all across Europe!   -For starters, 25 new story quests were added! This wraps up the Olympus Coliseum story (already?) and gives you another Orichalcum, so there are now just enough Orichalcum to get all five currently-available Keyblades to their third tier! (Third-tier Olympia looks so cool, and it has 16 gauges!)   -The 600 jewel Daily Deal has been enhanc

Total Eclipse of My Wallet

Battle Royal was just announced for Sun and Moon and OH MY GOSH   I mean I might never actually get to fight one but OH MY GOSH   I love all the updates to the interface, these games might really feel like a culmination like ORAS did...as opposed to X and Y...   I'm really interested in this talk about guardian deities for the four islands. Are they Legendary Pokemon or something else? Is Tapu Koko the name of a Pokemon, or will it end up having a different actual name?   It looks like Sun and

(Semi) Maxed Medal!

Unchained gave us a lot of boost Medals this month, so my Guilted Goofy now has maxed out strength and defense and minimized cost!   The only way this can get stronger is if I can get a better Guilt percentage (Low Tier, so best possible is 25%). I might give that a try, but that's random so who knows.   I've reduced cost on enough Medals that I could put a third 6 star medal on both Treasure Trove and Lady Luck, but...I don't know. I'm not sure if any of the Medals I have right now are necess

Okoto 579 Spin-Off!

Yes the main stories for this year are dreadfully overdue but whatever that’s not important right now.   As teased previously, Karios has been working on a spin-off for the series featuring his character Max. It will show him working his way across Okoto to settle into the role of being the new Mask Maker, and may also have a few hints toward the future sprinkled in along the way.   The story is in progress, but he is looking for some feedback and has posted the first piece over in short storie

Steins;Gate 0 Localization!

Source   Still no news on when the anime starts, but we might not need to dodge spoilers that much longer!   Steins;Gate 0 will be released in America and Europe this year, on both PS4 and Vita! I'm very glad I didn't sell my Vita now.   Apparently, the company selling the localization is advertising it at an event this weekend, and whoever comes to their booth can get a free poster if they say "El Psy Kongroo". I like that.

The Heart of the Sea

June…doesn’t really mean anything special.   Except now it does, because it means you can get Manaphy over Mystery Gift! This is far less convoluted than that egg nonsense from when it was first made available!   Also, when you get your Manaphy, be sure to leave it at the day care with Ditto—that’s the only way you can get the not-exactly-Legendary Pokémon Phione!   721 HERE WE COME!

More Magic

Since one of the reasons I’m writing Divine Strength (or anything really) is to play around in a fantasy world, I feel like I should try to do more with that fantasy element than I already am. For example, the only magical beings who currently exist in the story are the Queens and the Ruinous. Only having two categories both with very finite rosters seems weird.   So I thought maybe I’d expand upon the backstory I had for the Ruinous: that they were born from the forces of magic in response to

Nonsense

It bothers me when people insist that I am smart.   I’m a college dropout working part-time in a grocery store deli. What part of that says smart to you?   I need a quick way to shut people up the next time this happens. Unfortunately, I can’t think of one. Because I’m not smart!

Heart of the Cards

Well...Heart of the Medals. Kingdom Heart of the Medals?   SO. Kingdom Hearts Unchained X added another 25 missions, plus a week of Daily Jewel Missions, so between that I was able to pull together just enough to do the current Shop event with 4/5 hours to spare. I really wanted the KHII Kairi Medal, though I figured it was a bit of a long shot--still, some of those other Medals look cool too, so eh, let's take the long shot.   Let's see, Dumbo, Wakka, Paine, huh, this isn't really wait.
