gen 3

It’s been a long while since I’ve encountered a new Pokemon so I’m glad that Niantic is introducing part of Gen 3 into Pokemon Go. I look forward to pulling up the app again to see what Pokemon are available within my vicinity. I still see a lot of known Pokemon but occasionally seeing one I’ve never caught before is refreshing. Its also good timing – I just collected enough Machop candies to evolve one into a Machamp, and the only other Pokemon I needed candies for is Togepi, so having new Pokemon to collect candies for is great. Will I ever get tired enough of this game to completely quit? The game requires so little effort and fits so well into my daily back and forth between work and home. I’ll probably only quit if there is a massive mobile data problem that prevents me from playing.

long way to go

I picked up Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest again and have gotten around half of the second gen recruits. I hit 100 hours of gameplay on my save (not counting all those hours unrecorded due to resets) and I realized I still had a long way to go.

Once I get all of the second gen recruits, the completionist in me will need to get all of the Support Conversations between the next gen and their parents, and those amongst themselves. And all that won’t really count as progress in the storyline. Let’s see how many more hours it’ll take me to do all of this.

devilish training

My fiancee picked up Brain Age: Concentration Training again and I’m happy – I’ve always wanted her to play 3DS games and the reason I kept my old 2DS was so I would be able to play games at the same time that she’s playing.

The minigames in Brain Age are tough! I actually stopped playing the game because I’m always mentally exhausted by the time I have time for Brain Age, but I originally bought it so I could keep my mind sharp at all times. Now that she’s playing it again, I might start trying out some of the devilish minigames again.

third promotion

I’ve been playing Fire Emblem Heroes for quite some time now but have barely promoted my units to five stars, opting to save my Feathers for the really good units. The first unit that I promoted to five stars was Cordelia, and the second one was Olivia.

Earlier this week I finally pulled Effie and I decided to promote her to five stars as well – I don’t have that many five star blue units and also want to complete my armored team. So far I’ve been training her and she feels worth the 20,000 Feathers. I’ve never been able to complete that monthly quest that requires you to beat the tenth stage of the Training Tower with armored units – maybe Effie is the one that will help me with that mission.

playing cupid

Finally, after getting “stuck” at the same point for months and months, I’ve finally gotten all of the first gen characters to an A-Rank Support level with anyone and everyone they can have Support Conversations with in my Fire Emblem Fates Conquest playthrough. But now I’m facing a more difficult situation – who do I pair up?

I don’t know why I’m overthinking this, but I don’t want to go just willynilly and do the pairings without any thought. I want pairings that would make sense to the characters and to the game’s story; and I’ve been stuck on this for days now.

Whatever. I’ll just have to read through the Support Logs again and base my decision there. Maybe I should match up the royal family first and work my way from there?
