got my preorders in for both the MH Rise Pro Controller and the Skyward Sword Joycons.

Nice. It stopped snowing here mid yesterday but that doesn’t mean I want to be out in it. I’m going to try and put deposits down for them hopefully on Wednesday. That’s when the snow is supposed to be clear. 
 

I’d do it online but I don’t have the extra funds at the moment

 

edit: got my preorder for the pro controller locked down via GameStop’s dotcom site. I’d rather do business with Best Buy or even Amazon but it is what it is. 
 

wasn’t able to get the Zelda Joycons though. Sold out already at GameStop and became sold out at Best Buy as I was checking out. 
 

im sure both items will float in and out of stock at all retailers. Still bums me out though.

I should get around to picking up the Xenoblade games. I bought the first one on Wii but never played it. 

 

Smash Fans: Please, no more sword fighters.

Sakurai: What if I gave you a sword fighter with anime tiddies?

Smash Fans:

Uuuuuhhh the Direct was WILD. So much stiff to be jazzed about. 

 

17 years since the last console Mario Golf game. Super Star Rush looks like it is gonna be lit. Worth it alone to see Waluigi wearing a fedora.

 

I'm looking to pre-order Hades physical but can't find anything. Profound sadness.

Yeah that's what it came down to but it was funny to still see. I care nothing for the Xenoblade stuff but good for those that got what they wanted. As always it was funny that people always get mad a fan didn't get what they wanted from a direct.

I grabbed them from Gamestop's site. I can space out the payments on the store card to the point, and save enough to get both along with the deluxe edition of MH Rise.

Jealous. As I mentioned in my last post I’m sure both with float in and out of stock until release.

While the snow hasn’t totally melted the roads are clear. So I ran some errands today to get some fresh air as I was getting cabin fever something fierce. 
 

one of the stops I went to was GameStop. They were sold out of the Zelda Joycons and the Monster Hunter pro controller. Which was expected but a bummer all the same. 
 

What I did do was pay for all my amiibo preorders (monster Hunter trio and the smash trio) and my physical deluxe edition of monster Hunter rise. 
 

I also paid for preorders for another set of the monster Hunter trio and physical deluxe edition of Rise for a friend. He doesn’t know I’m getting them for him but it’s all he and I have been talking about lately. Since he can’t work I figured I’d give him the hook up. 
 

It was expensive as I dropped about $320 but I got my tax return today. So I took the opportunity of having extra funds to pay for everything now than worry having that sizable chunk of change at the end of March. 
 

ill also be able to get Persona 5 Strikers and Bravely Default II on release.

Admittedly, I've not played XC2. When I pick up Bravely Default II on Friday, I may get it if Walmart has a copy. I still have barely touched my copy of XC Definitive Edition.

Edit: My shmups got delivered today from Amazon Japan. This was packaged with the Aleste collection: 
EuxBO-7XAAAzylJ?format=jpg&name=4096x409

 

From what I could immediately understand and barely translate, it's a overview of the Aleste series and the new title that was created for the collection. I'll post a secondary post here in a bit with the boxes for them. The only one that didn't have reversible art was the Darius collection.

Bravely Default II is some really good shit. I’m absolutely loving it.  I’ve only done the prologue. Which isn’t really that long, I just took my time. The prologue took me close to 7 hours. 

 

There is an interesting mechanic in the game called Exploring. It actually rewards you for not playing. 
 

Before going into sleep more you go to the Boat House (which is unlocked in near the end of the prologue). When you get to the Boat House you choose “Start Exploration” 

 

The exploration happens automatically and as your game is in sleep mode you “go” on mini-adventures “meeting” other explorers and earning items/rare items/gear. The longer you explore the better the quantity and quality of items. I’m assuming here but I’m sure better items become available the more you progress in the game. But again, I’m assuming. 
 

You can explore up to 12 hours before you stop receiving exploration rewards.

If you told me the Diamond and Pearl remake was like Legends Arceus I would be fine. 

 

But holy bleep having the non battle sequences purposely mimic the original on the Switch when we have seen them do a better remake on the 3DS with the with the third generation games is a terrible decision. I get COVID probably factors in this decision but you can't expect people to be fine with something that looks worst then even Let's Go Pikachu/Evee.

Dude Bravely 1 got me mad early with that fucking rat faced boss with the backup....throws money at you. Those games don't fuck around. 

 

Need to start Bravely 1 again. 

I’m facing a dude that comes with 4 minions and turn 0 he buffs them all to take only 1/2 physical and magical damage. So I’m sitting here like “wtf bruh?” 
 

When he was able to do another 4 actions he buffed them again doubling their physical attack and magical attack. When they wiped me out in probably 2 turns. 
 

shit was brutal. I’m not even level 13! Have mercy, Square! 👏🏼

just beat his ass. It’s amazing what happens when you pay attention to weaknesses and have items that hit every enemy

Man I love Princess Gloria. 
 

Spoiler

A childhood friend fucked her over and betrayed us. while we were being escorted to the dungeon she very calmly and poetically said to him in a PG way  “you just fucked up. when I get the chance; I’m going to fucking kill you” 

 

she’s a bad ass bitch
