98 Seed Sorrow

I knew this was going to happen. Crap like this always happens to me in JRPGS. I need to collect a lot of something, and end up missing one despite my vigilence and have to run the list again to find what I missed. Such is the problem in Lost Odyssey, where I discovered to my infinite dismay yesterday that I have only 98 of thr 99 Seeds I need to redeem for an accessory, so I'm eventually going to have to run the list to find it. I have a short list of places to start, but if those don't pan out, I'm going to be a very unhappy camper. Without that last seed, I can't get the achievements for teaching the immortals every skill, and there's 80 points up in smoke.

The better news is I took out the Blue Dragon and Holy Beast side bosses yesterday. Both are total pushovers if you have everyone with nullify elements and All-Barricadus in effect. I also got Tolten's Ultimate Hit ability, and cleared the Middle class in the backyard, making for a total of 40 points in that game for the day.

In Gears 2, I suffered through flaming Bloodmounts solo for that 25 pointer, and played a little of the MP to help my bro make progress toward the Annex achievement. After that, I was gamed out for the day and watched the first disc of season 9 of Stargate SG-1.

Nothing special planned for today, but after my next three-day work stretch, I'm off to Tomah, WI (a five-hour drive away) to spend a few days with a couple good friends of mine. I'm looking forward to that.
