Thinking About This…

It has been brought up before that I’m in series need of a new wheelchair, but thanks to the state I live in kicking me off aid, I  cannot get back on insurance. Love how state aid wants people to be almost poor until they help, but try to save and your cut off! I’ve asked my sister to help & though she’s “looking into it”, she’s…

 

Last week something came to me that I could use as a last resort. I could open a “Go Fund Me” fundraiser to try getting the chair that way. True, research needs to be done before commiting to this, but its an option.

 

Any thoughts?

Should I Be Glad Or Annoyed, Hmmm…

Gaming PC 2 Game pad and Keyboard

 

So much has went on as of late that are presenting to be good topics that I’d like to share. This first one is somewhat funny, but also annoying to me at the same time because of what was asked about. Most here know I game with one hand & without going into detail of how, (it’ll take seeing more than explaining), so I’ll just say it’s a skill that took me a long time to teach myself.

 

The other day/night I hosted a Tekken 7 lobby and a player came in and played my Xiaoyu, and after which, they offered to “train” me to use her better. Before going further, let me state that I had offers, which ended up being people just wanted to be hard asses and have me be their dummy, so I refused. Anyway, he added me, we spoke that night with me being gruff, telling him that yes my ling has flaws, but look at the vids on my profile, I do fine, given what limits I have.

 

I let him know I game with one hand & after viewing the videos, he was like “OMG, it doesn’t look like you play one handed, you do well!” I thanked him, but here’s where the annoyance started. They asked me how I do it, how the keyboard/gamepad’s held, what fingers do what etc. I told him, but they asked more and brakes were put on.

 

Come to find out they were attempting to do it themselves. Whatever, told him it wasn’t a skill you just learn overnight & though he was saying he know, he still thinks it can be mastered in weeks.

 

So what do you think about this? Do you think it would be a bit annoying to be asked 50 questions?

Personal Blog For Aug. 2017

Didn’t mean to go MIA for months, only to drop in every once in a while, but the heat be zapping me. Well that and stress, which will be touched on, so let me begin.

 

Though a fan that is now in my room helps some, my whacked out body temp still gets hot in this weather, having me not willing to do much. It is annoying as sin, but lately I’ve found the spirit to write. Most days I REALLY dig in & do serious keyboard damage, writing, (two pieces I’ll share later today). While adding to open work, a few ideas for new stories came to mind, but I’m attempting to close open stories before starting new ones.

 

 

In other news. You see from the Tekken matches above that I’ve gotten better at the game, hell after those two, I was bold enough to try getting to the first dan in rank, which I have zero idea how, but my Xiaoyu is now 1st dan. Was trying blocking so much of the opponent’s horse sh”t that when I won, I was like, “Uh how?” However, as of late, players have made me not wanna touch Tekken 7, having me take a break from it. Yes, it is very competitive, I know this fact, but  lately its been nothing but “Only do three of for moves” spammy fools.

 

Now to the puppy, which stresses my ass out. I explained how he barks and growls at me when I go to make coffee, while last week, it got worse. Came out, he went for my foot, having his mouth around it, ready to bite. I kicked the dog off, ready to ram his back leg. One does wonder what my nephew teaches it, hmm?

 

Great news: I do believe an artist has been found to draw two of my characters Actually she follows this blog and after reading her update on drawing human faces and seeing the improvement, I approached her. While talking, she explained a few things, which I’m fine with. So when I quit sitting on my good hand, (joke joke), I’ll post Aki and Skya’s pics for her to give her an idea to draw from. 🙂

Saturday Went To The Dogs

Literally went to heck! The family set out to a theme park at 6am, leaving me here here with the dogs. Remmi, the female pitbull & I don’t have a problem, she’s like a four legged teddy bear, but her son is poorly trained. Every time I’d left my room for coffee or dump my pee, he’d bark/growl like he was about to attack my ass. Later, he knocked off a cup ate it, tipped a table over, but when I came to confront the animal, growl, bark rinse repeat.

 

My nephew allows the dog to act this way towards me, giving me some unfunny comment I dare not repeat. When they got home at midnight, thanks to the puppy, the living areas was destroyed and I told Junior my piece. I dislike that animal!!

Personal Blog For July 2017: Mid-Latter June Was A Cluster ****!

Okay, I will try typing this without too much swearing because I am attempting to trim down that side of me. There are several sides to cover in this post so might as well dig in.

 

For those who celebrate the fourth, Happy belated 4th of July, hope you had a good one!:) I spent it home alone, coffee and water in hand, watching The Twilight Zone, gaming in an attempt to get my head on right. After the people came home, had to sit through them arguing! Oh, you tube helped block it out, but still…

 

Here’s part of the reason I’ve been “off” and hold off with your responses, this is a big one! I believe I said how my nephew asks me to do things for him, acting all nice & saying I’m his favorite uncle. Well, the last week of June, he came to me and asked if I could use my Amazon account to order the kids a $119.00 trampoline. I looked at him and said, “Why can’t you open your own & do it yourself?”

 

“Its easier if you do it, unc.” Whatever, just wanted gone so I ordered it, but made him sit here to ensure I got the right thing. He typed it in and I had him view the item. I ordered it, thing came, but it was only the net for a trampoline. Who blamed me for ordering the wrong thing, he did! However, I answered with he was here looking at girls on facebook, you told me it was the right thing, so you’re to blame, not me!

 

It was returned, but over the 4th, he asked the same, but he wanted me to put it on my card this time. I looked at him and said, was he out of his mind?! The kids scream, waking me up, don’t respect you, me or their mother, why piss $189.00 away when I have my cell to pay, crap I wanna buy and save for. Again, I ordered the thing & waiting for the damn thing. However it’ll be “Don’t ask Shadowlight for anything anymore!” answer from now on

 

Next topic is a positive one. Since the Steam Summer Sale, my PC Gaming library has grown nicely. Even though my nephew has asked for that stuff, some funds were used to put some funds on my Steam account to take advantage of deals. Final Fantasy 7, Wolfenstien: The New Order, Space Quest Collection and a few other titles were grabbed, which were dirt cheap! Makes me happy that I could take part in the sale for the first time! 🙂

 

As for Tekken 7. Eh, it’s okay, but some people online have me questioning if I wanna keep it installed or not. I’m learning Ling Xiaoyu, (below) & given my limits, I’m okay in a match with her, which after you see the three videos, let me know what you think. But a “friend” who thinks he’s a FGC god, trying hard to beat my ass shoves it down my throat that I need to watch tutorials and learn terminology of the game. Um dude stfu. How can I show what I know to you if you just beat my ass while against a wall? Even friends who do honest matches against me think I’m good.

Here are the three vids.

 

 

 

Other than those topics, the heats been cooking me, so anime reviews are on hold til a cool down cause all wanna do is limited stuff. Have been writing though to clear my head.

My Two Cents On The Final Fantasy 7 Remake For PS4

Sorry about going off the grid for awhile, between the heat, lack of sleep, being sick, probably from the heat and other crud, I felt drained. This week was E3 week & though consoles are not big in my life anymore, I still like hearing what’s in the works. However there is one thing I wanted to hear about since Square Enix announced it a bit ago.

 

I’ll be showing my age with this one, but back in the late 90s, I played the hell out of the original Final Fantasy VII on PS1 and liked it. Before that game, RPGs were never my thing, sad but true. Seven hooked me in a way no other game of the time did & never let go. Fact: it took me a year or two to beat it, (not 100 percent), but it filled me with pride knowing I beat the game.

 

While visiting my adopted family in the 2000s, they showed me video of a full CGI FF7 movie called Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children to be released, we thought sometime that year, so after being dragged back here, (a topic for another time) it was ordered. Months passed with the release date being pushed back and Square Enix claimed there were issues with the project from tech problems to actor issues. Two POSSIBLE reasons for the delay, but it was delayed so many times I think they wanted to build a lot more hype around the movie.

After the PS4 was out, square showed a teaser trailer and at the end they revealed that a FF7 remake was in the works, making fans of the old game grin. Even I would buy a PS4 to play that one game. Alas, this week no word about it came from the E3 floor, making me think they’re filling that damn hype train again. Oh, the word is DEVS had to be switched, again “maybe”, to me though it sounds like hype building.

 

Do you think a remake will ever come?

My Thoughts On Tekken 7, (PC Version)

T7FR_Ling

 

Okay, I’ll go on a limb here and say that I’ve done something I swore years ago not to do & pre ordered said game for the PC, BUT Tekken 7 has lived up to the hype an then some. Sure, a third party DRM is in place that has to verify itself every thirty days or so, which is a dirty underhanded ploy by the DEVS, however it is what it is.

 

Over the weekend, while trying to stay from the heat, I’ve played the game, a game my computer handles well and am learning Ling (picture above), Lucky Chloe, (below) & a few more fighters.

Though tricky, a way to use Chloe is slowly starting to kick in, but would I feel safe using her full time yet? No, because some moves come out at times, other times they don’t, meaning I need to practice more. There is a character I do feel right about using though, watch the videos at the end to see what she can do.

 

But to my surprise, my old PS3 controller with rapid fire function works in the game, which helps greatly. Was spanking ass Saturday night, (not really, but did help).  I will explain two downsides of the game. Even though half the people in that Tekken group are on my Steam account, only four play against me, the rest avoid me or play two sets then say “Another player wants to play him, we’ll play later.” but never asks meto play. Makes me wonder why I added some people, you know? You can creat six slots in a room, so he could’ve done that, but.

 

As of this post, online rank matches are not for me. Went into some & though I’ve played well, leave it to the no skill halfwits to spam. All and all, I’m loving Tekken 7!
