    So, I've broken into hardmode, and post-golem as well. I've been having issues with  massive lag (0 frames per second, how the :red: does that work) and I've finally tracked it down to the astral shield staff. Shame because it's a really good summon weapon for general exploration.

    0 FPS? That’s called freezing..

    Well, most times it just dropped to 1 fps, but sometimes 0 came up as well.
    (Horizon Zero Dawn)

    After tracking down, and immediately brutally murdering, wooden effigies of (mostly) passive deer machines, I have secured the platinum trophy for this game. I might pick up forbidden west someday if it's available for ps4, because hell will freeze over before I buy a ps5.
    (Horizon Zero Dawn)

    So, I've beaten this game, and I only need 1 more trophy to get the platinum. I thought I would see the gameplay as meh, but it was pretty entertaining. The last mission was also pretty cool, even though the final battle with the corrupted deathbringer was a little underwhelming. Shield-weaver is just broken though, so that might explain it.

    So, I got this game at my local library a couple months ago, but had to return it due to stupid controller problems, but now that I have a new controller, I played this game to almost full completion, and I've quite a bit of fun with it. I only have 3 trophies left until the platinum, but they're collection trophies, so it could take a couple of weeks. Or months.

    I've also tried out this mod, and I'll be honest. I'm not a fan of this mod. It feels like balancing for bosses went completely out the window... On the ground floor. So far, I've had no idea if I've fought bosses in the correct order, doesn't help that pretty much every boss deals over 30 damage with almost every attack for whatever reason, and have health stats that are all over the place.

    While I might just being getting better at combatting the vanilla bosses, but when I can beat skeletron with single digit defense and sub-300 max health and not use a single healing potion, I expect pretty much anything after that to be easier.

    While Abbadon kinda had an issue with this, the only boss I had extreme trouble with was Jensen, and the others felt like they were pretty well balanced

    So, I've started delving into modded, and this is the first big one I've played. I've gotten to the post moon-lord content and so far I'm having fun with it. Next I have to fight duke fishrons so I can progress further, however I'm not entirely sure if that's true
    (Bloons Tower Defense 6)

    So I managed to beat this contested territory. It feels like while the contested territories are really cool, people just don't play them. About 7 people were even on the leaderboard, and the team I'm on has 15 people alone. One team literally did absolutely nothing for the whole week. I managed to get into the top 10% my second event, and I wasn't active for 3 whole days.

    I feel like I should clarify something, there are individual leaderboards for the event globally, and one for "local" events. there were 7 people on the local leaderboard, while I was in the top 10% for the global leaderboard
    (Bloons Tower Defense 6)

    Well, I just beat elite bloonarius. Jesus Christ the ramping is insane for elite mode. The tier 1 elite has slightly less then the fortified bad that spawns on r 100 abr. The next tier has slightly less health then the entirety of round 98, the strongest round in the entire pre-round100 rounds health wise.
    Hootle The Stonklet
    Hootle The Stonklet
    The ramping gets more insane as you go higher. The final tier for elite bloonarius has 40  MILLION health. A round 300 fortified bad has around 3 million, for comparison. By the way, you have to fight the next tier every 20 rounds after 40. Meaning anything less then absolute maximum farming stands no chance of getting past tier 2.

    Even with 2 (granted, not great) paragons, tier 5 elite bloonarius still made it to the bottom of quarry. And of course the event banned apex and dominus by limiting you to 2 darts and boomerangs, and banning navarch by preventing you from getting flagship. So I was stuck with a degree 32 shadow and degree 10 builder.

    So, I've beaten the game a second time. I incorrectly assumed that richard was going to be difficult, and ended up curbstomping him. Only to get curbstomped myself by lambda angelus, who I correctly assumed would be a problem.

    His mystic arte in particular is a devastating attack that pretty much wipes out every party member in range. Which is over half of my party because Sophie and hubert don't retreat during eleth break, and me, who does, gets targeted anyway.
    Hootle The Stonklet

    And of course it teleports me into range of the other 2 members, leaving possibly cheria alive if she isn't in range in the first place. Definitely a tableturner attack. And with a 600k health pool, I got to see that attack a few times per attempt.

    As for the post-game dungeon, i can't even access it because humanoid enemies are on steroids and annoyacide. Atleast lineage and legacies is a bit more forgiving. For now.
    (Tales Of Graces F)

    So I'm close to the end of my chaos playthrough, and I firmly believe that Emeraude is an absolutely bull:red: boss. Luckily, I got by it only getting party wiped by killing field once. Maybe I'll try the post-game dungeon again, but that probably won't go well.

    So, I've been playing around with the new Paragon, and to put it bluntly... It blows. Big time. The green sentry can't be locked to a certain point, it can only overclock itself, doesn't even have bloon traps of any variety, it's damage is absolutely abysmal, and it's the most expensive Paragon to date. It's like the opposite of navarch.

    Yea, it seems ascended shadow and navarch of the seas remain the kings of paragons for now. I also find it funny how the only thing from path 3 that master builder retains is the nail pin, which is just hilarious because it doesn't even affect moabs

    I thought the nail gun stunned moab class bloons instead
    Hootle The Stonklet
    Hootle The Stonklet
    Okay I had that mistaken, it pins ceramics, but stuns moabs. I'm not sure if that distinction actually means very much, but whatever. Also, it apparently adds 10% attack speed onto itself every round, which is still pretty awful, because it takes 60 rounds to reach max attack speed at that rate.
    I'd like you to think back to the summer of 2020. What were we all doing? I don't remember. Although I can tell you that it probably wasn't talking about how lobsters are scorpion mermaids and how corndogs are meat Twinkies. And if, perchance, you were

    Why the :red: have you cursed the world with this knowledge?
