I don't do sugar in my tea, so I can't discuss the virtues of one sweetener against the other, but I can tell you that I'm into oolongs and puh er, depending on current mood. Green I like, but somehow I manage to always oversteep it so it ends up bitter.

 

I have a tea timer, as well as a kettle that can be set to different temperatures.... water at 175F and 2 minute steep = perfect green tea!

It's a lot of flail.  You could technically skip right to the start (i.e. today) as I haven't even posted my first challenge update yet. ;)

You seem to be doing fine.  I one-up your sunglasses game.

The girls really carried that game.  Well, I did like Sazh.  Snow was also ALL OF MY NOPE, and my lack of love for the whiny kid with the pretentious name knows no bounds..... why did Hope have to be the best healer in the game?

 

He did get better at least....... thankfully................. BUT STILL.

 

............In fact, I will go so far as to say that the nightmare with which Lightning Returns opens is due to the fact that the women were all...... otherwise engaged... and left the world in the care of Snow, Noel, and Hope.

 

No wonder everything went to hell.

 

 

This is a large part of why I had Trouble with the game. I had Sazh to cling to...and that was about it until Chapter 9 and when Fang showed up (or whenever the game opened up so the gameplay started to improve because HOLY F BIG MONSTERS AND STUFF THAT LOOKS ALMOST LIKE FF). Sazh and Fang were the only relatable ones in the context of the plot. But basically if Snow and Hope (who can step on a landmine for srs) didn't exist...yeah. Would have been a major improvement. Maybe the apocalypse could have been avoided? I have not played Lightning Returns, so not sure.

The lack of open world did suck.... fixed in FFXIII-2 and in LR for sure!

 

I actually also love Vanille for her very atypical characterization (she is not your average "genki girl") and general complexity.  Lightning was great at the start, then Fang and Vanille kind of took over the role of main character and she faded..... but quite redeemed herself in later games!

 

Sazh is excellent always.  CHOCOFRO.

 

I think the apocalypse might have come whichever way, because first Serah mucked with things and then there was that whole "leave the guys in charge" bit which.......... yeah.

 

Now I am thinking of doing my unfinished bonus content in LR except..... all I can think of is that absolutely hideous battle against Caius which I only won by the skin of my teeth by building damage-immune paradigms and chipping away at his health with a spoon....... ugh.  That was so hard.

I so need one of those!!!!

 

The timer is just a bitty magnet timer from my local Japanese market.... I can't imagine it would be hard to find one.

 

I have this kettle which isn't too expensive but is SUPER AMAZING.

 

Followed! Will catch up on posts in a bit!

 

Woot, welcome!

Too good. I spent months on that.

 

 

It was probably the most frustrating battle of my video gaming career.  I don't think I'm kidding,

No way, I like how a good battle focuses the mind, very meditative. I can still spend hours on the 13-2 Requiem of the Goddess DLC. Not even joking.

 

I have a line between "good and challenging battle" and "I want to throw my controller and cuss in every language I speak."  Caius crossed that line for me, haha!

 

Not in XIII-2, mind.  He was fine there.  It was the LR battle that was a nightmare.

Really? I got beat half to death about a bazillion times in 13-2, especially with the paradox scope on. I think I went in unequipped and got stuck in the Void Beyond.

 

And that's how Caius became my Jedi Master :)

I don't recall every detail, though I remember having some issues with Caius vs. Noel with paradox scope on..... but still, nothing compared to my LR woes.

 

Still upset because I believe originally Gideon Emery was going to voice him, and then when the game came out it was some other guy.  So I guess I have an extra reason to want to stab Caius a lot.
