Final Fantasy XIII-2 Part Four: The Last Hunter

June 23, 2013: The Impersistence of Memory
Noel tried to argue why Caius couldn’t be behind the AI going haywire. He remembered that Caius was a Guardian of the seeress, but couldn’t remember his other reason.
I’m tired of the Tower and its dumb rotating rooms.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Part Two: Innocent Sins

May 18, 2013: As the trio tries to explore the Yaschas Massif, another Altas-esque creature attacks! These creatures must be directly linked to the paradoxes.
It’s a brutal boss fight. It inflicts Wound and constantly casts Deshellga, Deprotectga, and area-of-effect spells, making the Sentinel role basically useless. So annoying.
In the end, a boomerang banishes the beast with an electromagnetic pulse attack. There’s only one Final Fantasy XIII character that uses a boomerang: Hope.

Hope

You don’t even get much for “beating” the invader.

Adaptation April #5: Silent Hill: Dead/Alive Issue #5

Chapter 5

Christabella thinks that Connie looks like a goddess. “I hate that.

Fuck, I am so screwed. I can feel this thing’s power. It doesn’t give two shits about being worshiped. And it sure as hell isn’t going to explain itself to me.” Continue reading Adaptation April #5: Silent Hill: Dead/Alive Issue #5

Chapter 4

Right off the bat, this issue is different than the others, because Nick Stakal has made a major shift in his artwork. It’s much more colorful than it was before.

Christabella throws the keris into Lenora’s chest. “Fuck. That’s gonna leave a mark.”

The “mayor” tells her that it’s impossible for her to die because she’s Jezebeth, the goddess and ancient one.

Christabella thinks that she never quite feels like herself unless she has blood on her hands.

The clock is stuck at one minute before midnight. The monsters are going out of control because Lenora was wounded.

She recognizes that the keris steals souls. “Might help if I had a soul…”

Chapter 3

Ike cocks his shotgun. “Let’s party like it’s 1999, bitch.”

Both Kenneth and Christabella say, “O-kayyy…” Acknowledgment that Ike is supposed to be cheesy in-story.

Ike and Kenneth’s dog Bear begin to fight off the monsters. Kenneth realizes that Bear somehow turned the horrible cannibal vampire dogs from Silent Hill 4: The Room into his posse.

Kenneth narrates to himself that Lenora the witch claims that she can tell him who his birth parents were and why he’s so drawn to Silent Hill, and why he thinks it’s beautiful. Why it feels like… home.

Some blood gets splattered onto Christabella, energizing her. Is she a vampire now? “Feeling much better now. Hey, cocksuckers! Wanna play?” sigh
