Doesn't help the item boost rate just expired before this feature came a day later.
Oh, they know, that's exactly why they do these boost periods, it's always just before you're going to need it. They see those boost periods as padding before a big event.

Since the new summoning system, I got pretty much everyone I wanted. I used a bit of the refund to get memories, but I'm waiting to see what other FES will come next. Then again I don't really need the ones in JP/KR right now, I can live a bit without Rock, Adelheid and Leona XII.
And I've already awakened (once) my Big Cheese XIV, Nameless, Orochi, Goenitz, LOZero, and OZero. I even threw a OYashiro to get through that damn tier 3 blue hell dungeon. I have memories for OShermie, ORugal, OIori, and a level 2 OZero. But man, this is such a gold sink, and the gold dungeon is so out of date with our needs.

Fucking hell, a hundred bucks for one FES memory selector, that shop is fucking crazy. That's the same price as that anniversary ticket that let you get a new FES character.
... wait, there's a 30 bucks item that gives you a FES memory selector... but it makes you wait 28 days. Wtf ?

Drewski if you can't see the gold "enter coupon" button with the other setting buttons (profile, check-in, link account, help, options...) Then I'm pretty sure it's because it's only available on Android. I've no idea how you can use them on iPhone.

It's been bothering me, but I think I just remembered where I saw the actress for Stargirl's Oblivious Mom. Is that Tasty Coma Wife ? After JD's brother as a terrifying supervillain, it's fun to see more Scrubs actors show up again.
Oh, yeah, Stargirl. So they put a lot of money in those 5 minutes of JSA at the start, and then they put an entire zero dollar in the writing. Oh well, it's teenage girl cringe, but still better than early arrow.

Police responsible brought to justice.
The sad part is we all know how that goes. Currently, it seems all 4 officers involved are under federal investigation (even the one who was just standing and watching his buddy murder the guy). Best case scenario, they all get punished (actually punished, not just getting a big paycheck to leave). That's still not going to wash the entire slime of corruption that's everywhere, the countless murderers who don't give a shit because they're wearing a badge. What punishment are you getting if you're one of those mayors going on TV and literally blaming Floyd's death on the looters ?

I looked up more of the dinosaur thing and apparently they just jammed all the Buddhist things on Mt. Togakushi into Momiji. The association with Kuzuryu (a Buddhist dragon god), turning Momiji's fire and dream shtick into lightning and dinosaur stuff, that sword (vaguely resembling a vajra), it's all from the Buddhism stuff that took over the mountain she lived on. And then they just removed almost everything that was actually her from the tale / Noh plays.
The Buddhist rewrite of everything Japanese after the Heian period was really awful.

This is tries to be written like an actual press statement, except it's supposed to be a leak (and it has super weird phrasings). And it says absolutely nothing of interest. Fake with nothing that can even be discussed, not worth even spreading around.

Yeah, the fairytale is very simple and has nothing like that. All it says is that she transforms into a 10 feet tall oni with burning trees for horns
the image of the horned oni is a deformation of an ancient shamanism where women shaman wore an iron crown (also ancient blacksmiths / metalworkers), and would put candles on the horns and / or across the mouth ; the popular depictions of uji no hashihime drowning herself are close to that, and in Momiji's case, the burning trees for horns are likely a deformation of simple candles.
Apparently someone at Type-Moon saw 10 feet tall demon and went with t-rex, but fucking why (I mean, FGO has other onis that aren't T-Rexes), and what's that sword

I've always been curious about the few characters that were created for those last few 3D games. The likes of Asura and Enja/Suija got lucky but there's still a bunch of characters that just vanished. And some of them seemed cool.
A few months ago I was looking through YouTube to see some of their gameplay, but the only videos of them I found were by some dumb shit who kept spamming a single button and one special to complete the arcade mode. Big fucking whoop.

This one Japanese tier list I follow puts him at the top together with Orochi, citing a skill that nullifies damage taken, a core passive that gives a chance for super armor plus deals 150% burn damage when hitting with a skill (any skill), another passive gives him power gauge for every crit (3 second cooldown) plus penetration up by 650, he has a skill that has a specific effect in PvP only (seals roll and the last hit seals the enemy's active skills that are strike type (not blast or grab), and his last skill increases his attack by 45% of his defense. So he's another nightmare in PvP with a super defensive build. I assume he's fine in PvE, but his high rank is for PvP.
Defensive build are OP, and he has stuff that was meta at the time (hyper armor, strong burn, seal roll and even seal skills, high def with atk boost by a percentage of def). Although these days the meta is stun, petrify, freeze and he has nothing against that.
And he has great attacks that actually hit stuff. Like how Geese XIV can tear shit up anywhere on the screen in a second.
Also he hella cool.

Question about the ticket, tho: Is it random or do you get to choose? Just wondering.
On the reward list, tap on the ticket, then tap on the magnifying glass. If it's a list with percentages, it's random. If it's a line-up of portraits with a "collect" button, you can pick the one you want. The WWE ticket you get after 200 pulls on the WWE banner is a selector.

I passed on 13 Kyo, Alice, 14 Nakoruru, Orochi Iori and Awakened Leona... was this a good choice?
Great green units are way too rare, while someone like Kyo 13 has a lot of competition (a Geese or Omega Rugal if you don't already have them is much better than Kyo). Nako and O.Leona are fine, but not that good, Alice is a joke, Goenitz still outclasses them all, O.Iori is the only serious name in that list (a lot of people love him, I don't). And the free 3PG card makes the choice much easier too.

I'm on the infinite reroll for 1k rubies, reroll number 50,000 and this fucking game still DOES NOT want to give me that Goenitz.
But heads up, the infinite reroll includes Alice XIV, for some reason ?? Yeah, the one that wanted you to pay 50 bucks like a month ago. If anyone cares.
edit - literally rerolling over and over for half an hour to get him. Finally. I'm powerlifting that bitch straight to the top.

It's fixed to 99 max per stat (although apparently that's about to change with a new awakening system, it seems).
Orochi Chris and Orochi Shermie aren't that strong among other FES characters (purple border), but FES characters are always stronger than everyone else - with very rare exceptions.
The boring thing is limit breaking them up to 90. Purple KOF souls are normally hard to get by - although lately, there have been a lot of events that gave them away. But I really don't think that'll last. So getting enough souls takes a lot of time (through soul quest and the event quest against colored bosses where you can fight 2 colors per week), it can easily take a month for one character. Getting cores and EXP capsules will take a lot of time too if you don't already have one maxed out character to take on the daily challenges. It's just a very long grind to get one character to 90, and then even more to max out the +hp/atk/def capsules. And cores are the worst at the beginning, but you do need to put as many as possible in a single character.
It won't hurt to keep putting your gold KOF souls, purple souls, and red souls in your Kyo 96 and 97 because you do need to build up a roster of different colors, just keep any green or yellow soul for Chris and Shermie.

Tekken 7 collab FES was Geese Howard XIV, because of his guest appearance in Tekken 7, however he isn't counted among Tekken 7 characters so his banner could re-run, which it already has in JPN
He's available in the Kaya banner. Nako isn't, though.
Tizoc(king of dinos) would be a great kof character that would match with the event.
Tizoc's model was datamined, along with other KoF XI and XIII characters. Dunno if that means anything for this event.

In an interview in the recently released Ultimania, Nomura / Nojima / Kitase talk about the number of episodes there will be and when the next will come up. People have been worried that they still don't know how many episodes there will be and that must mean they don't fully know where they're going with the story.
In a nutshell, they do have a plan for the story, but they haven't decided how they'll cut it up. If they put more of the story in one episode, then it'll take longer to release that episode, and if they want to release it faster, then there will be more episodes.
My understanding of that is it'll probably rather depend on which story beat they want to end each episode on, like when they decided that the departure from Midgar was definitely a story beat worth ending episode 1 on (and then used the opportunity to pad Midgar a lot more). And like a big part of Midgar, it'll probably also have serious implications on how much padding / filler there will be in each section of the world depending on how they cut it up.
Spoiler: a point in the interview about the ending (click to see content)
So... When's the next major story beat ? Cosmo Canyon, Gold Saucer, meeting most of the rest of the cast, the Temple... I feel like we should get introduced with the Black Materia and explain the clones and the Reunion soon, but if they want to get that far, they'll have to avoid putting nearly as much padding as they did for Midgar. Or shift things around since Aerith will want to speed things up now (like move the Gold Saucer and Dyne later, Barret already got a good share of exposure). So just the eastern continent and southern islands IMO. The city of the Ancients, the North Crater, Cloud's mind can take episode 3.

Oh that, yeah, there's no way he gave a shit about the specifics of what happened in Britain or was involved in it. That's just what the Romans did, how they took new land in those situations (and how they punished those who resisted), over more than a generation.
