Alright here I am back another week with the towers of Nemesis and Thanatos respectfully. As well as a few other minor things to whine about of course.
So I broke out of the insanely easy Hypnos tower to find these two standing there. Yeah, it’s exactly how it looks 2 Jack Frosts, one a boy, and one girl, in sailor style school uniforms. They claim to have transferred to the school. They also say they want to make a hundred friends. How awkward.
Right so the next place to go seems to be Nemesis Tower so we’ll head on over there next. Right inside the door we meet Michiko the tower’s guardian. She’s a total brat. You know the debutante type that only thinks the rich, beautiful, and powerful should be allowed to live. Well she says right off the bat that she’s going to kill the entire party….except that boy there that’s pretty cute. He can live, as a pet.
Brown’s reaction to this is as expected truly priceless. I’m not sure what he was honestly more offended by, the death threat to his friends, the pet line, or the fact that she herself is pretty freaking ugly. It’s things like this though that make me love him as much as I do.
So the two have now vowed to beat the crap out of each other. Guess which team I’m rooting for. Seriously though, I don’t usually have a problem with the rich girl character, but they do need a little bit more to them then this.
So after traversing through more dungeon we find this lovely scene straight out of Hell itself. Toro and Devil boy are both here being tortured in a most heinous fashion. Devil Boy is doing push ups over spikes, and poor Toro who’s lactose intolerant is being forced to drink massive amounts of milk. Poor guys.
Ok we need to beat this chica down. But before I have the chance she reveals that down the left hallway there’s a mirror shard and the secret to beating her……Toro and Tsutomu can wait a little longer right? So I bolted down the left hall into an inevitable trap. I wish I could say I was surprised when the floor fell out underneath my feet.
But we finally made it to the treasure chest. I really expected a monster in a box to jump out and bite my face off, but to my surprise I did indeed find a mirror shard. Oh and the secret to beating her…..getting to her fast, she gets stronger the longer you take reaching her….well I blew close to half an hour here alone so I really better run now.
Okay I have no idea how long it actually took but I finally made it up here to her. And it seems she witnessed my immense stupidity back there. Ah well can’t win them, besides if I beat her face in then there won’t be anymore people that saw that horribly selfish display of mine.
We’ll see about that.
Of course there’s no feeling sweeter than when your party echoes your thoughts.
She was freaking easy. I’m not even kidding I didn’t have time to take a picture of the boss fight. All that build up and she was fantastically lame. Of course the party wasn’t the slightest bit arrogant about winning this one.
Not even a little bit arrogant.
So not only was this a horribly lame fight, but now Michiko is honest to goodness whining at me about how she didn’t do anything wrong other than bribe, cheat, lie ,and manipulate her way into the lead role in the Snow Queen play. Give me a break lady.
Clearly Elly hasn’t played Persona 3 or she would that Thanatos is the king of awesome. True fact.
So we go into Thanatos tower and wham bam thank you ma’am we have a creepy skulltastic room right from the get go. The boss of this tower shows up and says something about how you have to blow out one of the two candles on either side of the door to proceed. Just like that I blew out a candle and now Yukino’s persona is sealed. Crap.
Well that sucks but at times like that it’s best to put your past behind you and hope that it doesn’t come back to bite you. So forward ho! Besides Brown doesn’t think our villainess is such a bad girl. Well let’s see what she’s got.
Is it just me or are those treasure chests shaped suspiciously like skulls? Well I need more Mirror Shards, so we’ll just guess and hope she doesn’t eat me. So one correct guess later and we are moving on up. And boom baby that’s my eighth Mirror shard! Take that.
So here we go running back up this stupid tower and bam finally the boss room. I got hellishly lost in there somewhere I can’t even imagine how much time is left on my time limit for this place.
Right, so thanks to Final Fantasy VI we now refer to this as the chapters from a self help book mode of talking to the villain.
Okay, so they’re a slightly hateful self help book……Not helping Ayase. I need smarter party members. I do love though how they blatantly insult everyone before their fights.
Honestly I would have expected Michiko to be the tentacle monster in disguise….Oh god each tentacle has different strengths and weaknesses. That’s never fun.
What’s wrong Yuriko? I beat you up now you don’t have anything cute to say anymore, serves you right.
Maybe if I look at that from a different angle it’ll make sense…..nope still not working for me.
At least I’m not the only one not buying into this.
That’s your reasoning? I….stupid freaking girl. You know what I’m done for today. That was too stupid for me. We’ll continue next Monday with the end dungeon, my final thoughts, and a few confessions.
