SiliconNooB returns from a week-long matrimonial booze-up thoroughly disinfected with alcohol, but also losing his ability to function as a gamer, and increasingly inclined to use of ‘easy mode’ and ‘golden feathers’, much to the consternation of Akademician.


  1. It’s not an easy mode. It is a custom difficulty.

    I took enemy health down to 50% because Xenoblade 2 enemies are damage sponges, and to compensate I raised enemy attack damage by 25% which causes them to hit like a sonofabitch.

    If anything the game is harder this way. Trash mobs are easier, but bosses and larger enemies (which still have a lot of HP and defence to work with) can completely wreck you in very little time.

  2. I made the game more respectful of my time. The parts which are supposed to provide a challenge are even more difficult now than they were before.

  3. “Take my dragon?
    It’s fast!
    Pay 1000GP.”
    Now THAT’S dialogue.
