In Memory Of Alan Rickman

Just days after we lost David Bowie, we lost actor Alan Rickman. As noted in my Video Log, I didn't see all of his work, and really only three of his films roles stand out to me (His roles in Die Hard, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves and Galaxy Quest). He certainly had a great presence and made the characters he played (Hans, The Sheriff and Dane) very like-able (granted two of these roles was playing a villain)
Don't know why did I go with the Galaxy Quest Theme for the opening and end

Let's Play Grandia II: Eye See You (Live! Broadcast Replay!)

We return to the world Grandia II following a rather long 'live' broadcast over on YouTube... really wish I could see the chat like I can with Twitch, and the reason why I wasn't using Twitch is that half the time I can't tell if I'm broadcasting. Not to mention the uncertainty on if the broadcast is being recorded like with YouTube.

Anyway, onto what was accomplished: taking out the Eye of Valmar, which is always a heart wrenching battle, because unlike with the Tongue of Valmar whose host was a greedy slob, the host is little Aria, a sweet green haired girl who wants everyone to be happy. Unfortunately her desires has a negative effect on her village, and there are 'eyes' everywhere.

I probably missed a few pick-ups while in Aria's Mind / Dream Space, as I got turned around a number of terms.

The boss battle is pretty long, and I probably didn't take the best approach to it... that said I did avoid anyone getting knocked out (Granted just barely). The key to battle I think was taking out the floating eyes first, and then going piece by on the big pineapple looking creature.
And then prepare for the FEELS with Aira at the end...
