lol I've failed at updating these last couple of days >_> I didn't write my health journals either. It was pretty standard stuff though so it shouldn't be hard to write those.

Tonight was more foobles. We finally won a game~~~~ It was supposed to be an easier win but we were scraping by lmfao. But uhhh honestly it's to be expected IMO lolol.

Almost all of my boyfriends did great stuff; Erik Walden did a very exciting thing. He had a few great plays today, I was happy XD

Also this <3 TY always does great things tho XD Which is always good but I like it when the less-prolific players get in the highlight reels too xD Would be nice to see more Jack Doyle highlights show up XD He did pretty good today but nothing that would make a highlight reel, sadly...

Also I'm very glad that the NFL has started a YT page and the way they're doing it because they pretty much are just cramming it full of content... They post a bunch of highlights every week, and post legacy content, and some random other stuff... they've even started uploading full games (like past superbowls and famous/exciting games of the past) twice a week. They also have playlists for every team and player that collect all the videos of them so if you have a fav you can go watch it. Well, only players that show up regularly in highlights have playlists.

Also we're the only team that won in the division this week which is good for our standing but sad because I love everyone in our division and I wish we could all win every game somehow even when we play each other and everyone go undefeated LOL

Anyway, watching the Chargers I discovered some lovely faces:

lots of images )

Oh yeah also today there was a lot of talk of Manti Teo like for the entire first half because he was important and then injured and they just kept mentioning him and like his name is pronounced the same as mine and since they refer to everyone by last name mostly I just kept hearing Teo over and over and like it's so weird because I'm not used to hearing my name??? Like other people probably run across other people with the same name as then but... I never... hear other people named Thaao so it's like so weird feeling LOL

That's about all I have to say on foobles I guess.

Dennis gave me his Dragon Quest IX game and was like 'you should play it' and I was like ;;;;;;;;; and then later I was playing LegLeg and he was like 'oh are you playing DQ????' and I was like ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; so I ended up playing it...

Generally if people encourage me to play a game it makes me not want to play it LOL but this is the first time Dens has ever recommended or encouraged me to play a game so I feel like I have to try it XD

It's actually really fun though, but like the steal rate is really atrocious?!? Like I seriously would steal like 40-50 times from an enemy and it would fail... and then finally it would succeed and I'd get the common steal, and you seem to get the rare one maybe like 10% of the time??? So it's SUPER obnoxious... but to finish your monster book thing you have to get both the normal and rare drop from every enemy (stealing just has them produce one of their drops) soooo uh yeah. After I finish the area I'm in (one more monster to go XD) I might stop trying to get all the steals and just go on with the game and hope I get an easier way to do it later...? Or at least get to where I can change jobs and change EVERYONE into a thief and learn Steal with everyone... I think it transfers over? Also it's not called Steal it's called like... Halfinch or something, like everything in this game has super weird names and like 95% of it is bad puns...

There are these enemies called... like... Sacksquatch... they are supposed to look like burlap sacks but they look like pizza rolls and every time one pops up in the field, it like falls from the sky and lands on its face so it just looks like someone dropped a pizza roll onto the field from heaven LOL.

The battle choreography in this game is really great. The characters run around during the fights and there's so many little animations. Also when you get a crit or block with your shield, there's this like slight slo-mo effect that is so satisfying XD Like, this is the kind of battle animation/choreography you'd expect from stuff like Paper Mario. Really nice. I mean I guess DQ is like a top franchise so it shouldn't be that surprising, but... XD Final Fantasy is also a big square franchise and their battle choreo is not nearly as interesting. I mean, it's pretty, but it doesn't have the same kind of... satisfying... feel to it? Even UN:Saga which I think has nice battle choreo is nothing close to this XD

The story is pretty cute, it's like just a big series of substories which I think is what DQ is always like, idk (this is my first one besides playing a couple hours of DQ8 but Dens is playing DQ7 and it seems like that too and the little I played of DQ8 seemed like that, so... XD) and the two I've really played through so far have been pretty interesting, albeit silly. Sadly there have been no hot characters yet at all. But it's Akira Toriyama so like the game is just like ... a million clones of the same 5 ugly people and then Mr Satan clones and I will like those when I get to them I guess LOL

But yeah I ended up playing it like all day lol. I probably burned myself out.

I might try to do an Ys Origin Time Attack this week and stream it. Despite being called Time Attack, time is the least concern. It could take ALL day to finish it. Basically, it's a boss rush, and you have to fight all the bosses in a row. You can retry each boss as much as you want, but there's no quicksave/suspend feature, so if you quit the game, you have to start all over from the beginning.

It's not that there's a lot of bosses, it's that bosses in this game are extremely difficult and require a severe level of pattern recognition and precision timing/reaction. Mistakes are heavily punished so you die a LOTTTTT. My last Time Attack took like ... 6-8 hours I think? And there are eight of them, and you have to finish all eight to get an achievement. It's my last achievement I need :P I've finished... two I think? Maybe three. But I'm pretty sure two. I've attempted a couple more but ended up giving up after 4-5 hours or playing all day and still not finishing it and having to quit.

Yeah, I've done 2 so I have 6 more to go... One of those will be fairly easy. There's two for each character, four characters total, and one character is pretty easy because his bosses are easier and he's kinda OP. I already did one of his, though.

But yeah, if I do stream it, my twitch channel is here so you can come watch if you'd like. If you subscribe, turn on the email alert thing or else you'll not get alerts XD

Anyway, I am the tired and I will sleep now. Even though I don't feel like sleeping at all. I'm kinda worked up from today because I didn't get a lot of 'break' lol.

Give Up

Well, I gave up. Kishgal is a crapshoot... and I've been doing this for almost 7 hours. I'm not gonna be able to finish it tonight (there are still like 4 more bosses after this...) so I just quit :/

I'll have to start all over next time...

I'll probably still be awake for a couple more hours, though. IDK what I want to do. I don't really feel like playing RSG3 or FFE. I kinda feel like starting a new game. But I don't know what. Like I kinda feel like playing Minstrel Song or UNSaga or something.

Well, I spent most of the day playing Ys Origin trying to get another of the boss rushes in.

Since I haven't explained it here...

The final achievement is for clearing every Nightmare boss rush, one for each version of each character (8 total). It's all I have left to do in the game. So far I've done two.

The biggest problem is you have to do it in one sitting. If you quit the game, you have to start over from the beginning. It can take... a very long time. Like... all day long time. There are many bosses (like ~15 bosses?) per character, and each boss only takes 3-5 minutes to defeat, but on Nightmare, you can easily die to the boss countless times and have to retry. You can retry the bosses as much as you want, you just can't quit the game.

I spent like... 2-3 hours on a single boss (an easy one, too... I feel bad XD) already. I've made it through most of them now, though, finally. I'm on Kishgal... who is one of the hardest. I'm getting the hang of it so probably about 40 minutes left to fight him... then I just have 3 bosses left... Zava will be fairly easy... maybe 30-40 minutes. Then Dalles takes forever; it's like a 10-minute fight and that's not including retries. The finally Darm, which... took me about 3 hours to defeat on the last character I did.

I'm already approaching 6 hours on this run :\ I take breaks by minimizing the game on the game over/retry screen.... but I don't know if I'll be able to finish this tonight... and I don't know if the game state will save through a hibernation (I have to close my laptop and transport it tomorrow...)
