Endure This! Run! Part 12: We Interrupt This Presentation of Romeo x Juliet...

Wow, it really has been that long since the last time I posted one of these, huh?

Anyways, when we last left our heroes, The Conqueror's army marched through the streets of Elysion just as David finally attended Congress. After being distracted by a woman wearing a very impractical outfit, Rush discovered that a older and more muscular version of Liquid Snake was the real The Conqueror. However, now that Congress is in recess, we can get back to the important thing: sidequesting!

A reminder to interested parties that you can still vote for Jorgen's job!

So we stop off in Celapaleis. Guess who's there?

Rush thought he was getting some sweet Khrynia Kush for that price. Unfortunately, it's just some simple medicinal herb that you can buy in a legal shop in town. Rush makes a mental note not to get swindled by her again...

Anyways, Rush decides to stop in the bar, thinking about what he's going to say to his dad, when he spots another classy gent.

Guess you didn't rate very high with her target demo huh Nielsen?

Dude, you're a Baron, you can have any woman you want with that cash and that 'stache. Nonetheless, Rush is tempted by the idea of slaughtering monsters and winning back the 1000 G that he...misplaced a minute ago.

Oh hey look it's a giant fucking monster. Just chillin. Unfortunately, this is not a rare monster to be destroyed for a quest, but all the same we must kill it. Not because it is easy, but because it is there. Or something.

Being a large-ass monster, allied units cannot flank it, but only engage in multi-deadlock. Also, that Dust Devil attack is annoying with the ability to hit a larger area in front of the monster.

Rush can now shock people and wildlife with even greater force after killing that monster. Huzzah!

The Baron should've paid us in more than Something Awful forums accounts

Yeah, some grandeur, being forced to run to a monster-infested battlefield in the smallest not-town map in the game.

Rush: Well, yeah, he kinda did, he was worried about...

Gabriel: Dios mio! And los diablos too? You are a fearsome boy!

Rush: Wait a minute, what do you mean?

...oh

Violet and Gabriel join up to help us beat down a few Unions of the weakest enemies in the game. I don't know how they coordinated their attack so well, but apparently they forgot the whole strength aspect of their team.

Rush stops listening and uses the Fulton Recovery system to teleport back to the bar, where Baron Nielsen is ready to receive us.

I had to stop her from falling down the stairs so much, you see.

Afterwards, Baron Nielsen returned to his home to render judgment on the newest play, The Tale of Gregory, Allen. So mad was he at it that he didn't notice his fiancee slipping out a window to elope with Gabriel again.

Oh crap, we forgot all about Rush's dad, didn't we? Guess we better get back to that...

Wait, that's it? Seems pretty short, especially considering it's just one sidequest.

This seems Japanese....

Won't lie reading through that makes me want to go back and play through the game again despite having S ranked it and put in 100 hours or so... Bah I loved Last Remnant so much.

I actually loved this game to death. People complained about it a lot but I found it different which is good.

Shame on you for not S-ranking it xyzygy!  
 
Ok, ok - I will admit I am a fucking crazy person for dismantling 500 monsters and you probably made the correct choice not getting that achievement.

I tried doing the follow-up sidequest so I could gain access to another guild but all that happened was the game throwing a pair of wyverns in my face who keep using that annoying Dust Devil attack over and over until everyone is dead. I think it's trying to tell me to get back to the story and come back to this sidequest later.

@Zenaxzd: To tell you the honest truth I have a file that's about halfway through the game and I'm on the way to S-Ranking it. I play it when I don't have new games. :)

I'm S-Ranking Magna Carta 2 as of right now because it's a lot easier and straightforward than Last Remnant.

I'd watch it, probably my only complaint about the game is how a lot of the side quests and such can just go away if you progress through the story too far or do some things before others. Assuming you actually care about the side quest anyhow. 
 
@xyzygy: Haha, I wouldn't expect any less. Really though I would find a backlog of podcasts or something when you do go to dismantle monsters because you're going to devote like a day to it. Or at least I did I guess, wasn't painful but it got dull after a few hours.

@Zenaxzd: Only happens if I choose to enter and then leave the Aquaducts a little later for a story mission when the world takes an irreversible turn. I'm safe for now.
