Today is the day that I've been looking forward to since....well, Tuesday. Rather, tonight is because tonight is the first time in two weeks where I was and am able to feel the freedom of nothingness. No obligations to go to bed at a certain time, to schedule this or that, to wake up at a specific time. No need to keep this and that in mind for tomorrow for work since I don't -have- work tomorrow. I got to lay down after work today and just let all that seep out and it felt good. It felt so good that it basically rocked me to sleep as, two hours later, I awoke in a better mood than I even anticipated being in. It's honestly something that I didn't even know I missed last weekend when I was sick and it's all the sweeter for having been so long, even if I'm not much of a fan of it taking this long to actually have this feeling.
I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with the weekend per se, but I know that I'm going to be doing a lot of leaving the house (unfortunately), so it's looking like my Vita is getting time regardless. To be fair, I probably would be playing around with it anyway for reasons that I will get into in a moment, but it sort of takes the questioning out of the equation which spoils it just a tad. I like to at least pretend I have plans to play my poor, neglected PS3 again so I can jump back into Deus Ex: Human Revolution, REVENGEANCE, Tomb Raider and/or Nier, or play one of the games that I haven't even started that I've been saying for about two months that I need to start. But there's always next weekend for that, I suppose, and next weekend, well, I can always say there's the following. Procrastination is magical like that.
It does have at least a little bit of merit this time around, however, as I do have an over-arching meta-goal in Disgaea 3 Vita that I am going to accomplish. I have stated several times that Dinah is going to be my Avatar of Extreme and Unyielding
Oh, I'm sorry, you think I'm kidding? You look at the above image and see that Dinah is level 9999 and go "But Mogs, just where can you go from here"? You, my friend, must not know the depths of insanity that Disgaea travels to, and you must not have been paying attention to my previous posts on the subject. Getting Dinah to level 9999 the first time is a mere accomplishment and notice that I said "The first time" - after I clear out the main story once more, I'm going to reincarnate her back to 1 so I can do the whole thing over again. And this time, I'll be able to add even more insanity to the proceedings - I'll be visiting Dinah's Class World to pump her up so that her gains over this span of 9998 levels will be that much more inflated....and then I'll reincarnate her again and do it over again. And again and again. And again.
I have a -lot- of ground to cover, you see, as Mushroom Baal, at base, has 1.7 million ATK, which you can see easily trumps Dinah's measily 242K ATK, with his Defense roughly in the same lines. With successive training, reincarnating and Class World visiting, however, Dinah's stats will only get better and better with every iteration of her form, and that's even before I finally step properly into the insanity of the Item World, which is not something I'm relishing even in the slightest. Yet the benefits will be great for what I'm promised is minimal, but tedious, endeavoring. Basically when I have conquered Mushroom Baal, I will call my relationship with Disgaea 3 severed, but not a moment before. Because Baal has issued me a challenge, you see.
And Dinah is going to answer that shit.
seriously, she is going to wipe the fucking floor with Baal when I'm done. Maybe
