Learned the hard way that Dark Dragons in the final dungeon counter against magic with Ultima. Lost about half an hour of effort, including getting several useful E.Skills, including the two you can get from Dark Dragon(Laser & Dragon Force) via Manipulate(Ultima is not on their Manipulate command list).

Tried to attack a pirate base.

Unfortunately, while I spent lots of credits buying fuel and supplies, I didnít consider that the pirates would likely be somewhat strong, while my fleet was rather weak (almost all of the ships in them were part of my starting fleet).

My character had to start again with two tiny ships and less than 25k credits.

I decided to delete them and start again.

After five minutes of just walking and ten minutes of agonized sneaking, I finally get inside the perimeter. I take out a hound and a skirmisher by making a suicider drop their mini-nuke; the experience loss is well worth it.

Then a mutant with a missile launcher pops out of cover and instantly kills me.

I feel like survival mode should have had either limited saves or almost every enemy being able to one-hit kill you; not both. It feels like most gameplay is just the walk of shame from the last bed back to the quest objective.

Was crossing a fallen tree over a deep ravine next to a waterfall.  A bandit charged at me across the log, but I cinematically defeated him with my shield.
Then realized I had shifted a foot to the side into thin air, and fell.  I missed the river, hit some rocks XD

Tried a game with 5x crisis strength, and had to actually concede it to the Unbidden despite beating a 4.5x Unbidden crisis pretty easily once.  My spawn position was kind of unfavorable so my empire was smaller, and that meant I had trouble producing enough alloys to keep up.  I had about +500 alloys per month, but each battleship costed about 1600 alloys so I could replace them at most about 1 every 3 months.  The problem here is that every battle lost me 2-3 battleships, and the Unbidden were getting new fleets every 3 months.  So... destroying an Unbidden fleet costed 3 ships and I could only replace 1 in that time frame.

I managed to destroy 695 of their ships while losing about 70 ships of my own, but there was just no coming back from it.  I tried and very nearly managed to take a chokepoint that would have cut off their reinforcement fleets, but by that time I had so few ships left that I couldn't face the reinforcement fleets, and even if I could get my own reinforcements to them it would have taken over a game year because the Unbidden spawned in the middle of an empire that never built any gateways and wasn't close to any L-gates.

Considered trying to turtle and build up my technology, since I was at around 17-20 levels of combat repeatables, but even if it would have worked it would have taken too long to be worth finishing.  Not to mention enemy fleets of 220K fleet power would have worn down and destroyed my perimeter bastions, so I wasn't really safe for much longer.

Inspired by DS3 Saber (?) cosplay and reading trough whole accursed filth itself i tried to make her in Sims Medieval. My inspiration didn't last long against character editor, of course.

No, not even "close enough". You get random name, stupid thing.
Some time later, in quest with a witch.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Well, i didn't expect to see hentaimancy in sims of all places. Damn proper hentaimancy, with a witch. To charge up magic resistance ring, to fight villain wizard (for the record - maxed mood does nothing, and having sex doesn't give + to mood, as strange as it sounds). Nevermind that his magic does exactly nothing and i already did beat him senseless a day before. I do this again, as quest demands. Next it demands to feed him to the tentacle monster. Nah, i'll just finish him with the sword. And... nothing happens, quest doesn't progress. And since he is already dead, i can't feed him to the monster. Since i can't reach the devs i decide to beat up the witch.

Oh, hello there. I figured that there must be a catch in ability to effortlessly murderbone almost everyone, but instant respawn is a bit too much. Maybe if i will feed this one, quest will complete?
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Nope. Nothing. Nada. Quest is broken forever. How great that i saved before all this affair. God, why this game must be a huge pile of great ideas, with every single one being implemented in clunky to abysmal (and unmoddable) way?

So, what do they expect me to do in GDI mission 11? Travel across the map with an MCV and 6 grenadiers while being constantly attacked? Build a base on a place with a bit of tiberium and somehow break through? I tried both and failed both times.

Died in spite of having renaissance sword lady on our team on one of the final stages (The one where the final traders appear).

Part of the reason was because I'd left the team set to "Runnin'" rather than "Defend", causing them to try to rush through a horde of zombies and thus getting eaten.

I got two of the big lanterns lit, but while fleeing from the boss I ran right into a ghoul, losing the last of my health.

Had a pretty decent setup for Emerald Weapon. Cloud has 9999HP and only two materia equipped, while Yuffie and Cid(both of whom, particularly Yuffie, I'd been stat-grinding in the Sunken Gelinka for a while) have a limited number of useful materia and over 9000HP each.

Fight was pretty long, probably longer than the 20-minute limit if you don't have Underwater materia equipped(I did). Even managed to pull off the Lucky 7's attack.

Finally ended when Emerald Weapon used Aire Tam Storm, somehow it missed Cloud(meaning Lucky 7's didn't trigger again), then it just trololo'd and attacked several times in a row without giving anyone else a chance to strike - during this, Cid had Highwind set to use and Limit Breaks are supposed to interrupt the command queue - killing Yuffie and Cid, and leaving Cloud attacking pointlessly(he was supposed to Lucky 7, as I set him to attack right before Aire Tam Storm locks out command input), which then triggered Emerald Weapon to use Revenge Stamp, killing him.

Today I Learned that adding a level to a system that is destroyed does not add a functional level.

My destroyed Oxygen Scrubber did not function when upgraded, leaving my whole ship without any O2 and my crew in their level 1 med bay barely subsisting and doomed as soon as they left it.

Every single bit of support the enemy commander called in landed right on my head before anyone else. First shell, first bomb, even got napalmed while underground because I just so happened to be at the bottom of a ladder to the surface when it was dropped on us. And without a Squad Leader putting down damn spawn tunnels I just wound up playing two hours of "Do Cardio Then Die Simulator".

Died so many times in Mega Man 10 I'm not sure which to mention.  Wily was almost insultingly easy compared to the rest of the game, and it was at least easier than MM9.

I'm still grumpy about Pump Man though, and how utterly useless Thunder Wool was.
