Going okayish on earlier-mentioned bullshit assignment. Higher education is such a pain sometimes. The whole process is weirdly cathartic, actually - we have to analyse a life transition, and I'm doing the early stages of my pregnancy.

My pregnancy which is coming to an end worryingly soon. It's hard to believe that the baby's due in ten weeks. I've gotten so used to being pregnant that the idea of not being pregnant, let alone having a baby to look after, is bizarre. It feels like so much more time has passed, but really, we've only known about the baby proper for about five months. Ah well.

Inspired by [personal profile] amielleon, husband and I have started a tag team no resets Hard runthrough of FE9/10. Well, almost no-resets - it's only his second time playing, so in order to convince him that this was not AN IMPOSSIBLE CHALLENGE, we agreed to each pick a champion (I picked Soren, he picked Gatrie) and to reset each chapter if they die, and also if Ike dies/we hit a lose condition. Fortunately we've only had one such incident so far, and that was neither of us being aware that Naesala's ravens can and will claim the sieze point on the ship level where you get Astrid. We've lost three units so far - husband lost Shinon way back in chapter 7 and Titania in chapter 9, and I stupidly lost Mist in Chapter 12 when I messed up the raven blockade formation. It's been a lot of fun so far! He's playing through Chapter 16 as we speak.

Have banned self from Mass Effect 3 until this assignment is done. Must. Finish. Assignment. At this pont, it's just become a matter of determination to know what all the drama is about!

No resets is a lot of fun, and somehow actually takes the frustratingness out of the game at many times.

Hee, I think I remember losing the ship to the ravens many times in the last. Which is why I had Lethe dawdle in the cabins after she was done (failing to) guard Astrid.

I suggest RD on English Normal, though. RD hard would probably make you (or your hubby at least) lose/reset like five times at least in the first four chapters. And E!Normal is J!Hard anyway.
