I’ve been noticing my renewed interest in 40K because of my continued Dark Crusade playthroughs. The voice acting is superb while the snappy dialogue during the game’s more challenging missions are actually really nice. Was thinking of getting Soulstorm but I honestly find the air units absolutely unnecessary and even the two new races (of only one of which I’m interested in) isn’t worth it for me.
Other than that, we’ll head straight to the music here. Last week’s theme was what I considered to be the true final boss to the game while the actual final boss is this. Inside the Old One lies the TRUE King Allant that brought ruin upon Boletaria and he is but a shambling mess of a creature that can barely hold his own sword. He’s not challenging at all but serves as a reminder to what may happen to all of us lest be be consumed by our hunger for souls. After he is slain, his final words ring, “You fool. Do you not understand? Nobody wishes to go on.”
Got caught up with something last night and also had to study for a bit so I apologize for the delay. Speaking of delays, there isn’t that much for me to disclose since I haven’t had too many things to do. Classes are almost out and that also means we’re reaching the end of Part 3 soon. Hopefully Part 4 becomes green lit and I pray that they retain some of the VA’s.
Other than that, I’ve been playing more Dawn of War for whatever reason. Finally, in terms of stuff I’m watching, it seems that it’s only Oregairu S2 and DxD to laugh at it.
This week’s theme is that of Old King Allant, AKA, the False King. He’s the toughest and the only non-gimmick archdemon in the game and as many people call it, the true final boss. You might be thinking, there’s 5 areas right? Then what happened to the World 2 archdemon you may ask? Well the as intimidating as the Dragon God sounds and how amazing his arena looks, the only thing you need to for DG here is just evade his sight and activate two enormous ballistas. After that, he just lies his head on the ground for you to finish him off. That’s it. False King and his guard dragon is a lot more difficult. Allant has a diverse, quick moveset that has plenty of variations to trip you up. While the recent games in the series (mostly Dark Souls 2) was criticized for the 1 vs 1 dude in armor boss fights, Allant is one of the best fights the entire series will give you.
So instead of taking the majority of this episode, the finale to Pet Shop and Iggy’s fight takes place in the first half of the episode while the buildup to entering DIO’s mansion alone takes the rest of the episode. Can’t say I’m complaining since the build up was pretty good and Terence’s entrance was pretty balling as hell.
I’m at a lack of souls either because of my inattentiveness or just not that many shows that I want to watch are airing. I think around Week 3 where the earliest shows have their 3rd episode are the latest times a new series could start off so I’ll be waiting til next week before I have a definitive list on what I’ll be watching for sure. But for now, nothing that new going on.
Let’s just move right onto the music here. Last week we were at the Storm King and we were at Maiden Astraea before. Similar to the previous 2 archdemons, the Old Monk is another gimmick fight that really varied in experience for a lot of people. Before I move on, I will have to say Tower of Latria (World 3) is probably one of the best designed levels in the entire franchise since I loved all the sectors. The Old Monk’s gimmick is that if someone used the online invasion item, they would replace the regular AI character boss and become the final boss of the sector. This could range from being easy to hard and I have acted as a boss a few times. Hilariously enough, most people actually die before even making it to the boss room thanks to the Mind Flayer mobs outside.
We enter the thresh hold of Part 3’s conclusion, but before we enter the gates of hell, our mangy canine meets the bloodthirsty guard of DIO’s mansion. This along with D’arby was one of the most anticipated fights and while I didn’t find the fight that amazing in the manga, watching it now really does put it into perspective.
Let the Heritage for the Future players’ PTSD return.
So let’s break this down. We had a whopping total of 6 harem series this season and I happened to watch 4 of them. There was Saenai and Isuca but I ignored both and decided to at least get some half-assed action and I was greeted with these four that stand to be judged. Anyone who paid attention to me knows which I hate the least but oh well, let’s get down to it.
I don’t even feel like using pictures so 3 small walls of text await you.
