So, since my one blog post on Eroico was posted to my blog without issue or trouble, I figured I try my hand at a game that is a little more risque. Eroico was somewhat risque but I was able to get by with editing and pixel blurring the lewd bits while being able to show you the game still. This game I am going to talk about, I have to see as it is more risque and the chance this post gets erased from the WordPress global search has gone up to 150%
But I enjoy talking about games and certain things I like or just blogging about my life and things I have done or plan to do but that is enough I suppose and time to get on with the show.
Do you like games? I also like games. Do you like 2D games about furry anthro animals and humans working as a team to stop (evil corp?) from ruining the world? Maybe? I will take it as a yes. Are you a degenerate? Hey, where are you going? I need to talk to you about a happy little game called “Happy Heart Panic!” this rad game was made in game maker studio. How cool is that? The game earned bonus points for that.
Ahem, dear WordPress staff, please don’t Thanos snap me and my blog post from existence. I promise this blog post is clean enough with a ton of censoring. Please, spare me.
With that out the way, I can now begin talking about this game that I grew fond of and I had to talk about it, and there is a chance that whatever I have to mention is fixed/removed/patched because, in this blog post, I will talk about Happy Heart Panic demo build 16, which is public.
I saw there is a game before Happy Heart Panic, and it is called “Happy Heart Hell” and since I have not played that game, I will be missing out on some lore. I will wing it. From what I understand there is a person named “trinity” And they are going around causing havoc and chaos, and it is up to Sam, and Whispy to stop trinity or join them instead.
It is time to be cool. New genesis dropped the new update and content. And I want to talk about it and share my thoughts on it and what have you. There is a lot of good content in this update. It has been the awaited update and content and I am just one of many who have thoughts on this update. There is a lot to talk about here.
I will start with the good things here.
The good things
Level 60 cap. You can do more damage and reach a higher level of power and farming has been made easy. Yellow triggers give you the full amount of exp and got rid of the Exp reduction which is a godsend.
Sonic Frontiers. The big new Sonic game that has everyone talking about it but for the wrong reasons. So I wanted to talk about this game like I did with Sonic Forces and go into detail here, so bear with me on this.
We have gotten two video game trailers and two gameplay videos that show exploration and his basic moveset. And there are puzzles and collectibles and the combat focus video shows off more moves, combat, fights, and so on.
Let’s start with the first Trailer we got way back on Dec 9, 2021
Before I begin, I want to say this is all speculation, assuming what may or may not be, talking about the good, bad, and other things.
It’s time for another Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis log where I just give an update of progress in the game I have done or done with help of friends. And now with added thoughts and rants.
Day one – 05/01/22
My Cinquem Katana is potential two and I just need some cheap to make it useful for my braver class. I want to make braver, my second main class, first being force. Baby steps but soon that dream will come true
reached level 36 on braver with the help of aluria. Went from Level 35 to level 36 and now I can use mine Cinquem Katana.
My braver / melee damage has got much better and now I am able to use my braver class. 40.9% to 62.3% And for the current build of the game, I’m not going to be dead weight, and I can pull my own weight here.
I have better augments on my braver now. I got rid of placeholder augments and it feels great.
I’m going to save my mesta for the new gear coming in the new region since it will power creep the Cinquem series and make it an outdated weapon series later on. It will still be good if you are farming levels around level 36 and up.
My grant unit will be replaced very soon as there will be a free unit coming soon in a seasonal event, and it is +50 too.
Day Two – 05/02/22
Did some farming at retem rank 3 to get some exp. I got a fair bit of exp and I’m close to being level 37
I level up twice. Level 36 to level 38. I am close to being to max level
Showing off some new fashion now my braver is complete at this moment. I can relax and enjoy the downtime of content since level 45 is the endgame at this moment in time.
I have thought about doing geometric labyrinth or (geo lab) for short when I reach level 45 on braver, it should be fun solo or that’s the idea anyway and I got some thoughts about geo lab. I want to get at least an “A” rank if able.
Dae has a new waifu named Arisu. Cute pair, they are.
Did the retem Renus Vera urgent quest but rank 1 with a pug.
I watch Arisu become op. They have upgraded their augments and watching them improve was pretty neat to see since some users in the guild have mix match augments. They have some good ones but end up slapping on some weak augments that don’t help out.
I learned some things here by eyeballing. If you wanted to do damage, you would need to be in that range, and given that urgent quests and giga monsters have greater or different defense and stats a normal monster would not have
Keep in mind that you may or will need more potency in a giga fight or urgent quests since they are normal monsters but supercharged.
Potency needed to do damage
Aelio ( 1 – 20)
Retem (21 – 35)
40.x% or greater
Update (36 – 45) + Geo Lab
54% to 56% or greater
I may make a augment simulator or a bare basic one that shows the percent of your augments. I will make a guide that teaches you how to use, if I make it.
Oh man, you hate to see it. A game I followed and was actively happy for was called Clicker Heroes 2. It is an idle game where you get stronger over time. Being a fan of Clicker Heroes 1, and seeing the game devs look like good people.
I pre-ordered CH2 (clicker heroes 2) since I wanted to try the game out. It was crazy paying for an idle game since the first one was free. But I was hooked on the project since it seem like there was a lot of passion behind this project.
When I got to play this game, there was not much to do once you got strong. You go to a world, level up and kill the mini bosses and kill the main boss. And this was back when the game first came “out” I dropped the game after a bit since progress would get reset back to zero, and would make me want to play it less.
So why am I talking about CH2 (Clicker Heroes 2) today? I had a itch to play this game after a long while, and I booted up the game and checked out the store to see the game went from positive to very negative. It is crazy. I backed this game without question, so this hurts to see.
And yes, there was not much to this game other than changing how to “play” this idle game. And given the extra fact that people had to pay to play this game was or should be a red flag for me but it was not sadly.
I just learned about this whole matter and it sucks. And the whole matter of resetting progress is very annoying but from what I saw, there was a blog post that detailed the state of this game but the post was in 2021 and the game had an update that seem to be the last one on June 16, 2021.
The blog post seems to be them blaming themselves using an outdated engine and from my understanding. They blamed the negative reviews for making their workflow slower and they got death threats, which I have to say is too far. You can be mad but sending death threats over a video game is crazy.
And pretty much, the game seems completely dead and abandoned at this point, and should they return, I see the damage is far too great to recover since if they would come back to fix the game. Their rep and status as a game dev have been damaged enough that some people will be careful buying games from playsaurus.
And it is a shame too. I had such high respect for this team and to see and hear how this went down. It is a sad story. I wanted to see this game to the end. This is why you avoid early access games, as they can be a crapshoot. They get from point A to B or get abandoned after a year or two and that is the worse outcome. And the latter of the two choices seems to be common these days.
This will or has made me be careful of getting games from this game dev team after hearing and I will say be careful buying games from this game dev team unless there is clear proof their projects or games are close to complete.
Like, what is this? Clicker Heroes 2 is in such a sorry state, and I hate to see it like this. I should have never brought or pre-ordered this game and it is a shame that Clicker Heroes 1 is a better game than Clicker Heroes 2, and the first game is free.
If it is not clear, I recommend you don’t get this awful game, you are better off playing the first game.
So, I’m going to try this style of doing update logs on games or things. Keep track of seven days and note down important thoughts or moments that happened, and after seven days, show off the progress. And boy, got some fun drama.
Day 1 – 01/31/22
Dealt with elsword drama with a leader. What a pain.
So, what did I do to get the boot from a guild in elsword? my experience.
I have ignored them in-game, I did not see them or anyone speaking on my end, which gave me little reason to chat in guild chat. Why would I speak in a dead chat? So I didn’t and ignored the guild. This, you should never be upset about.
So, I’m going to try this style of doing update logs on games or things. Keep track of five to seven days and note down important thoughts or moments that happened, and after five to seven days, show off the progress.
Day 1 – 01/06/22
Got rigomor bottom to R15
my flames of judgment are close to being nearly perfect
I have 200 million in my bank
Day 2 – 01/07/22
FOJ is almost perfect. One more giant stone
got rigomor bottoms to r16
Day 3 – 01/08/22
completed the 2 million event
Did Titan’s Grotto
700m in bank
Day 4 – 01/14/22
did Rosso raid with less lag
Day 5 – 01/15/22
got another batch of alt accounts ready to grind to max level
I have 1 billion ED in my bank
I have 42 alt characters to grind out to level 99
And that is roughly 8 billion ed if I do the story as well and pvp quests
It may help me get to Reforge +21 or +18
I will spend ed on fashion. And after I get good gear or get 3B ED. No point in buying fashion and being useless. I think around 3 Billion, I will buy the invisible suit for ain and go hard on getting to reforge +18 and going from there
And I will try to push for +21 Reforge on all gear +11 the rest of my gear or + 11 my gear then push for reforge +21
And once I get reforge +21 and +11 Rigomor gear, I will try to push for plus 12 weapon when I have the money to back it up if things go wrong.
As we all know, having the best gear is good, having good gear is good too. It keeps you alive longer, and certain gear will buff your attack power in range, tech, or melee. And it is important to know what class that you want to play so you can gear it up to be ready to use well. Pick a class and sub-class, and mess around with it till you find a main class and sub-class you like.
Having units and weapons below max level is a big no-no. Hey, you! Yeah, you. Buying fashion? Focus on getting gear. If you can’t carry your weight, and that means your gear is not +40 and the weapon is not potential 4. You may /or will be doing next to nothing, and that right there is deadweight, and you don’t want to be a deadweight.
If you are wondering what a deadweight is, I will give you the meaning in my terms. A deadweight is a person who is there but can’t offer any use or support to the team. They can’t pull their weight.
We doing something different here. I will make this a long post. And take this with a grain of salt. This post is by no means a perfect guide. It’s more of a rant that has a few tips peppered into this post.
Editor’s Note: This guide is for Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis before the winter update. This guide may or may not become outdated after the winter update. And big thanks to Aluria proof checking it, and helping me with this guide.
Disclaimer: This is a guide/rant about some Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis junk. Maybe you will find it helpful? And to be clear, this is just a bare baseline on what you should do. I have just been playing the game and been getting help from my friend, Aluria. And that I have a “basic” idea, and I’m tired of guild members wiping out like flies, lol.
Augments on your gear or lack thereof
So, this part is going to anger some members, but I think I don’t care. So I have not only noticed users not having any augments on their gear but have had the unfortunate experience of being in a party with them.
It’s not fun playing with them and before I go on a rant. First off. Have augments on your gear. That means your weapon and units. It’s shocking to see players running around with 0 to 4 augments on their gear.
If you can’t get the best augments, you can get the second-best or at the very least, get some augments that give damage. The point is, have augments on your gear, it really does help out, and on the plus side having augments will help you and your team out.
Plus, you won’t look like a deadweight if someone checks your gear and see you have little to no augments. But of course, having augments is not all you need to contribute to your team and be of use. There is more to it.
You might say “But Ony, I don’t play pso2 new genesis TM for that long. I buy fashion then gear later.” Ok, in that case, I got some options for you. And these are free options.
You can ask for help. Closed mouths don’t get fed. If you choose to stay quiet, then how can you get advice? More later on.
Look up the augments online, and find what works for you in terms of augments. Again, ask for help, if you are unsure. And check the player market, if you can’t get the best augments, you can at the very least, get something worth the money, and no, not fashion.
If you want the bare minimum and super cheap because you spend money on fashion to look good but be completely useless in action. Here is the BARE MINIMUM
Technique 1 > Meltech Dualble 1 > Nex Soul 1 > resola note /or tech III, > giga tech I > resola note > and nex soul I
You can ask around and look or do research on augments, as this is something I learned from my friend, Aluria. Just an idea of what you should get. Research, take notes, ask around. Something to think about lol. And keep in mind the market will spike in a while, so be on the lookout.
What each unit does for you, and depends on your playstyle.
Make sure your gear has augments. Please, please make sure you have augments on your gear. I said this before but please. I say this cause I have seen users’ units and weapons look like this. Don’t do this, and by this, I mean have little to no augments. see the following images below. please try to fill out all 3 slots or 4, if able.
I showed you the bad of having gear that has bad stats, let me should you what it should look like that has good stats.
The bare minimum you should have is as follows, if you don’t have a lot of mesta.
Pictures provided by Aluria
this can take around 30k mesta and depends on market or the fact you already have some of the augments laying around.
What your augments should be like. And yes, Using augments that increase the range of damage is better then using augments that boost defense as they do not matter much in early game, and you are better off having good augments that give damage.
Above the bare minimum. If you can afford it, try this out. This is affordable, but check market, if you saved up mesta and not blowing it on fashion. You can get this.
The idea here is to focus on getting the most out of your gear with augments.
And if you got the mesta and more than 1m you can try this. This is my force units below. Now, this is not the best but for what it does, I can clear most of the content in New Genesis with friends or whatnot.
Again, my gear is good enough to do content in the game.
Weapon level +40 – Affixes 4/4 – (fixa is optional but not needed) – potential level 4
unit level +40 – affixes 4/4 – (fixa is optional but not needed)
unit level +40 – affixes 4/4 – (fixa is optional but not needed)
unit level +40 – affixes 4/4 – (fixa is optional but not needed)
What have we learned? Always have augments on your gear, there is no reason not to at this point. You can even buy cheap augments that give a good boost to damage.
And they are on the player shop, you don’t even need to buy the high-end augments. If you can’t buy them now. You can buy something cheaper as I said before.
You can go after fashion when you have gear ready for content and such. The whole thing “my gear is not strong but I want to run content or urgent quests” is fine but to a certain point. Once we get better augments and better gear and harder quests or urgent quests like Sodam where you can fail, that’s when it will no longer it will become fine.
Your Gear level
Another important thing to worry about besides augments, and is the level of your gear but the higher your level on gear will unlock more augment slots
Level 0 to 19 = default 2 augment slots. 0/2
Level 20 to 39 = unlocks third augment slot. 0/3
Level 40 = all 4 augment slots unlocked 0/4
This is why it is best to upgrade your gear asap, as you can reap the rewards
You want to aim for +40 which at the moment is the max level for gear. If you can not hit max level, you can try +30 to +35 which is in that level range. You want to get the max level so your flat attack and flat defense is high as they can be, which can also be boosted by augments
+0 is bad, +10 not as bad as 0 but still bad.
+20 “bare minimum”, +25 slightly better than +20 but you want to go higher.
+30 to +35 is better than the +25 but you want to get to max level to make full use of units/weapons but it’s good enough till you can reach +40.
+40 is what you aim for to get the most out of your gear, I made that clear. And it will boost your battle power? If you can’t hit +40 then +30 or +35 is fine. Every little bit counts and it adds up fast.
If you can’t play for longer than an hour, go farm materials and grinders, as you will need a lot of them. It should go without saying but get fodder items. Exp weapons, weapons with no value or units with no value to enhance your weapon.
+0 to +20 may as well be 0 as levels go, imo. If you can, go for +40. if you can not, +30 and even +35 as a temporary spot is good enough until you can get to +40 before we get probably 20 more levels for gear.
Leveling up is good
This will be a short bit. This is just something I want to touch on. Levels are important. It should go without saying but getting to level 20 before the winter update will give you a good headstart.
Being max level may not seem like a big deal, but it adds up over time, and what seems small and unimportant will matter later on, and will be the difference between you staying alive or dying in an urgent quest / giga battle.
Level 18 – aim for this.
Level 20 – good
Level 21 – 25 winter update
Level 30 winter update
Level 35 winter update
Aim for level 18, at the very least. If you don’t like leveling, stop at level 18 or if you get to level 20. Just try to be a higher level than 15.
Please farm exp (fodder units and weapons) and get your units and weapon to +40 and get to the main class to level 20 and get a subclass to level 15 or 20.
There are people in the witching hour guild that can give you advice on what you need to do to make the most out of your gear. I should stress that if you do ask for help rather it be Aluria, Arisu, Daestar, Zargon, Elpha. You do the following:
You listen to their advice. Yes, it hurts to hear that your gear sucks but better to hear now instead of later on when people are doing new content and you won’t be able to. So please, if you want help with gear and tips, listen. Takedown notes.
Understand that you will need mesta, augments, and +40 gear (units) and weapon with potential lv 4 and affix attack lv 3 or higher. BUT ask whoever is helping you what is the best affix for you.
I say all of this because we got a new region coming soon with the Winter update which will raise the level cap, and by proxy, may raise the unit and weapon level caps as well as the augments cap, but I can’t be sure.
This is why you need to make sure you are geared and ready. Because later on, we might have an Urgent Quest where you can fail if everyone wipes out (everyone dies)
Mining base is a good urgent quest to see how tanky you are and how much damage you can dish out. As much as I hate mining base, it can be good to see the following:
Your dodge/block skills
learn what your high damage low pp skills are
are you DPS / or support?
how well you can follow orders when asked to do something
are you useful in action?
How good your defense is, and can you take more than 4 hits?
Learn if you are a DPS/secondary DPS / Support or buffer
It’s best to learn your class/subclass in a controlled area before going to test it in a non-controlled area.
Are you good / bad at luring mobs?
It is good to learn a class because like I said, there is no telling what kind of Urgent Quest may await us, it’s good to find out what you are good at, and being able to use 1 to no revives is a plus since later UQ’s will put you to the test in some way.
Let me say this. I am in no way a pro in Phantasy Star Online: New Genesis. I am a Force/techer who enjoys the game. And lover of cultured “wholesome” art, but let’s keep it real here. It’s lewd.
When you have got your gear fixed and ready for anything, you can spend mesta on fashion and other junk.
It has been a while since I made a post for when I go live. But I will go live on YouTube this time. And give this another shot since YouTube has a wider reach of viewers since most, if not all users, have a google account.
So, on YouTube, I got some games I want to stream Phantasy Star Online 2 is not one of them. I want to try out a few games and maybe, some coding in clickteam fusion 2.5. I will list the things I got planned.
Stream list for YouTube (And since I didn’t do my random twitch stream, I can do it on YouTube.)
I guess goals for the stream are something I should have planned.
Get to the end without dying.
Unlock hidden characters
Go and clear hidden paths
Play this for an hour.
Do some story duels, or whatever I want to do.
Play PVP and try to get to rookie rank or higher.
Try to relearn bujin and vampires.
I will play this for an hour.
Complete a backlog of story quests
complete any weekly quests
Get all my gear to +20
I will try to make progress, if able.
Play this for an hour or more.
try to beat two bosses
And play as long until I beat two bosses. Or something comes up.
Do daily quests.
Complete weekly quests.
Make alt characters to earn gold in-game.
Do this for an hour or so.
There is no order for these games in which I will stream them. And there is a chance I won’t stream every game/thing here, but I will try to do some of it at least. And that should be fun to do, for me anyway.
The Livestream on YouTube will start at 6 Am (on time) or 8 Am – 11 Am (If I oversleep.) And I will end around 2 pm or later. And this is all on Eastern standard time. And this is going to happen on September 25th, and I hope the stream will go well, lol.
