Well, damn. First there was a surprise in the form of an old friend. Then the Curator proved too much for me. Then my recording software didn’t appreciate the game it was recording suddenly disappearing. Bad at this game!

And now for the finale! The Opera wraps up with a story that seems oddly familiar. Pretty sure I’ve seen this one before. The fight itself is really freakin’ cool though, so I’ll forgive the derivative plot. Dorothee is just a sweetheart, powering up my minions for offense or defense!
