The Hellawack Shiznit that happens inside my brizzle

I AM THE GOD OF HELLFIRE! AND I BRING YOU…

#10: I was stuck on him with absolutely no idea what the hell to do for longer than I really care to admit. A little background: by the time I finished #2 off, I realized two things:

1. Shooting colossi in the eyes does nothing, and
2. As much as I love Agro, he’s pretty much useless for colossus fights.

So imagine my reaction when I broke down and consulted a walkthrough and had it tell me to do those very two damn things. It was something like “oh ha ha ha fuck you #10.”

#11: Aw, he is so tiny and cute! For a colossus, anyway. Now this little dude was fun. My favorite part had to be chasing him around with a flaming stick.

#11: CHAAAAARGE
Wander: Hey, look! Fire on a stick!
#11: *screeching halt* OMG FIRE
Wander: Here, have a closer look!
#11: *backs up* OMG FIRE
Wander: See, I can wave it around and stuff too!
#11: *backs up* OMG FIRE *backs up* OMG FIRE OMG CLIFF OMG FALLIIIIIING *thud*
#11’s Armor: *breaks*
#11: OMG NAKED
Wander: 😀 *leap* *stabstabstabstab*
#11: OMG DEAD *dies*

Geysers are not toys.

#8: GAAH. He wasn’t really that hard, but getting more than one stab in before he flipped back over and started spitting lightning balls at me again was tough.

#9: Oh wow, that was just evil. So basically, I have to trick this huge son of a bitch into standing over a geyser as it blows, shoot arrows into his tender ankles, climb up his belly when he rolls over, and get up onto his back while he gets up. OH YES PIECE OF CAKE gaaaah. Landing on that platformy bit right in front of his eyes, realizing I was walking in front of his eyes, and then having him flip me back onto his back was kind of funny. Falling off and having to repeat all this shit again was not so funny.

#7: A little frustrating at first, because I could never manage to be in the right spot to grab its tail when it surfaced. Once I got that figured out, it was another one of those I had to kind of ride around for a while just for the hell of it. Stab first weak spot that deactivates electric spiny thing. Stab second electric spiny thing deactivating weak spot. Stab third electric spiny thing deactivating weak spot. No problem. Oh hey, there’s THE weak spot right there!

Naturally,  just as I got it down to about two stabs’ worth of life left, it went “DIVE! DIVE! AOOGA!” and I had to let go, come back to the surface for air, and wait for it to pop up again.

WHO DID YOU SAY WAS SMALL LIKE A TINY LITTLE BEAN YOU CAN’T EVEN SEE

who-did-you-say-was-small-like-a-tiny-little-bean-you-cant-even-see

I guess now that I’ve finally seen FMA to the end, I can go read all the wank I skipped for fear of spoilers.

the dub is actually not too bad

also having read the manga before seeing the cutesy filler episode with Warehouse 13 and Armstrong trying to hook Havoc up with his sister and having seen the sister shown in the manga, my initial reaction to that bit was something like “OH GOD NO SHE’LL KILL HIM”.

#3: Climb climb climb, stab stab stab… hey, where’s his weak spot going OH SHIT FALLING GRAB SOMETHING–um yes, fur right above new weak spot, that will do very nicely! *STAB*

#4: Oh god, #4. #4 is the only colossus so far I have flipped the bird at. So I figured those tunnels and mounds had to serve some purpose here, okay? I just didn’t figure out the real purpose for a while. I’d keep zigzagging around and grabbing the bastard’s hind leg and hanging on for a second and falling off. Finally, finally, I just happened to leave Wander standing at the base of some stairs in the tunnels while I took a quick drink break when all of a sudden I looked up at the tunnel entrance, and there was #4 peering in. “WTF?” I said, and I snuck out the back and AHA CLIMBABLE TAIL. I felt like such a tool. At least once you get up on him, he’s pretty easy.

#5: Oh man, #5 was just made entirely of huge flying awesome. The weak spots on the wings were pretty fiddly to get to and getting on him at all was a feat, but be honest here, folks: how many of you just kind of hung on and rode him around for a while without actively looking for a weak spot? Fess up now, you know you did, that was fucking cool.

#6: And now, an easy colossus. YAY. I did get shaken off a couple times, but at least it’s easy to get up on him.
