Personal Blog For December 2017

aki-updated

 

Sorry for going MIA again, but having to debate whether or not the new chair’s ordered & other things have been on my brain. Let’s start this on a positive note. Even though the Thanksgiving writing fest didn’t really take, some progress was made, which is good and I’ll show today in another post. In A Wife’s Wish, errors pointed out to me by a friend and my adopted bro were cleared up I hope.

Other news: Our female dog, who’s a sweetheart of a Pit Bull is messed up, a bit blind, way underweight etc. Yes, she eats well and everything, we just suspect the last litter took a toll on her, it is just sad to see her this way. My nephew wants to get her fixed and have a hysterectomy done so maybe it’ll clear some of the issues up, (and I hope it does, she’s an angel!) Adding a somewhat weird and dumb note to this. The therapist the doctors roped me into seeing to exercise me, which I’ll go into at a later date is scared SHITLESS of her that the guy won’t even come in the forking house unless she’s downstairs.

The first time he came, she was up here and sniffed him, making him flip out, saying where he’s from, stray dogs roam the area. β€œUm, A: She’s blind and harmless. And B: There’s a difference between dogs you see roaming and domesticated dogs!” but he left! Last week, 15 minutes was spent trying to convince the fool that the dog was downstairs, at that point I was about ready to yell at the guy because he would repeat the same thing! He got on me for the way I was sitting, I told him it was due to the chair and he was, β€œIts not the chair’s fault, you can sit better.” Okay, you try sitting better in this!

This Saturday & Sunday I’m planning to binge watch TRIGUN so a review can be written. Wanted to do it last weekend but due to issues I couldn’t, so yeah. After TRIGUN, Elfen Lied is on my list, sorry for the delays. 😦

Not this Saturday, next Saturday is my birthday and unlike last year, I really don’t have no plans to order anything. There are things I want/need, but bank issues are holding me up, so a six pack of Mike’s Hard Lemonade will need to hold me I guess. Wish some of the anime club lived around here so we could meet up & do something.

Personal Blog For June 1st 2017

Once again sorry for going off grid for days/weeks, but health issues got in the way. I’ll be happy when my coffee gets ordered this weekend, hopefully it helps keep me from getting backed up.

 

Anyway, on with the post, & I’ll get the crappy part out the way first. After some odd months, my nephew in his dimwitted wisdom let his stupid ex girlfriend move back here. Yes, the woman who was wanting her own place, her own life, money but stayed with her mommy this whole time IS HERE! I voiced my opinion, telling him that he was a stupid moron for letting her back here because it has already started to decay into fights, but not my problem.

 

Before feeling muddy, so many words a day were being written & my stories were nicely constructed. Tomorrow, my plan is to write more & try finishing one I’ve been working.

 

As for the Elfen Lied review, I am trying to get that rewatched, believe me. Wish there were more than 24hrs. in a day.

 

Finally, in a few weeks, some Tekken 7 matches and training content will be going up. When the game’s bought, I’d like to train some and do arcade stuff before getting destroyed online, but I’ve recorded another game while the gut hurt to see how the quality was before I streamed and stuff. Look below and drop your thoughts. πŸ™‚

 

Mini Update

So, this weekend was somewhat productive! πŸ™‚ The computer game pads came Friday & I unplugged the shorted one, throwing it away, plugging in the new one. The backup is in my dresser’s item drawer if/when I need it. πŸ™‚ Boy, can’t tell ya how good it felt playing a game without the controller shorting out every second! πŸ™‚ Even managed to complete Devil May Cry 4 on hard, which I’m glad to see that I can still do it. When beaten, it unlocked two more modes, but I’m no way that hardcore to try em.

 

I am debating on showing game play footage of a boss fight, please let me know your thoughts

 

On the writing front. Tomorrow, (Tuesday) will be spent adding too, if not completing the fan based work, (the one with the woman below and the feline ninja guy), after washing pop cans out. πŸ™‚ My goal is to get open stories done before doing new stuff, as stated days ago.

 

Maki.

Lastly: Wednesday will be spent revisiting Elfen Lied so the review can be written, which most of you are waiting for, sorry to keep you all waiting. 😦

Personal Blog For May 2017

New month, time to clean out my head, so let me get into it, but at the end a cherry will top this off & I’d like to share it with ya.

To kick this off, I’ve been adopting new techniques of writing dialogue into my stories for three days and like it. In fact the next story I post has some of the new element in, so look out! πŸ™‚ However, and this may sound lame, but it isn’t easy to merge old and new, having em look like they work ya know? That said, I am adapting to change.

 

In other news, some of you knowΒ  one of my R/C trucks was stolen last week when I was out with it and though I’ve come to terms, this made me think about not taking my Stampede out anymore. Oh, it might be worry making me think that I know that, but it’s there. In a week, it may fade, not sure, for now though… The hobby isn’t dead in me, not by any means, I’ve decided to get the e maxx’s replacement, (a much cheaper in price truck), cause when I DO go mack out, I don’t see risking another $500+ R/C to be a target.

On the Elfien Lied front, I’m still trying to guess why my computer’s viewing software wants to play random episodes and not the disc in order. Its in a mode I’m sure, just need to sit down to figure it out. In any case, weather I figure it out or not, the series will be rewatched this weekend and a review will be up the following week! πŸ™‚

 

Lastly,Β  computer news and the cherry I promised. Another gamepad I bought a year ago has developed a short in the wire. I’ve taken care of it, but it might just be wear and normal use doing it, so my plan? Order two Wednesday and if one starts shorting, I’ll have a backup. Good plan? Would go with Logitech’s wireless pad, but heard that fails to connect on install. There’s a patch I COULD download, but if it won’t work, the gamepad will be a paperweight.

 

Okay, now the cherry. Since moving back to PC gaming from consoles, me moods have been better, added a few more friends on my steam list and even posted in forums there. And for the most part, I keep my head down, I’ve been cool when helping people etc. However one post had me almost lose my cool, but I managed to reply in a decent & somewhat funny way. while giving fact.

 

This user kept posting, whining that Tekken 7’s playerbase on PC will stink without crossplay and he/she isn’t too sure about buying it on steam. Well after the eighth post, I had enough and said my piece, which their post with my reply is below, let me know what you guys think.

The lack of crossplay really makes me think about not putting the money towards the PC version. I am interessted in playing ranked tekken online and if the PC versions community is small, then where’s the point? All the good players will be over at the PS4. For serious players the PC version seems to be a really poor deal at the moment.

Crossplay crossplay crossplay, I’m sure everyone agrees with me when I say we are tired of you beating a dead horse! If you THINK the PC playerbase is gonna be small, well it is your opinion, an incorrect one, but whatever. We however have a group to play the game, and I’m sure people will be coming once the game unlocks in 4 weeks. If your not gonna buy tekken for PC, DON’T BUY IT! Moaning about it not having crossplay only makes you look like you are, a whiny lil fool!

Rant over……..

Elfen Lied Update

Lucy2

 

Just want you anime lovers to know that I have started revisiting Elfen Lied! πŸ™‚ Even though my Computer’s blu ray software wants to play random eps. I manually kicked it in the butt & got through most of disc 1 last night. There are three or four episodes left on it, but the one I cringe at due to a puppy being beaten to death is next, so I’m trying to ready myself for that.

 

Thanks for supporting me and this review will not be too much longer. πŸ™‚

Next Anime Review, Elfen Lied Coming!

Elfen_Lied_Lucy1

 

Hot off the heels of the Full Metal Panic Review, the next one will be the Elfen Lied review, which won’t be months off. Before that though, I’d like to try getting back into writing the vampire novel, unfinished works, which I already started to do and other works, like the Sailor Moon/Star Cross Love crossover. Like the FMP review, I’ll do my best to outline the series, sharing my thoughts on it & the OVA, (though the OVA confuses me).

 

With that said, there is a part of Elfen Lied that makes me cringe, but I’ll get through it. So the review will be soon. πŸ™‚

Yes I Live And Stuff Is On The Horizon! :)

Yes, Shadowlight does still live, sorry for going missing for weeks. I still haven’t slept well, (though last night was the first decent sleep I’ve had). Anyway, on to the news.

 

Gaming PC 1

 

This monster above has the MSI R480 4 Gigabyte graphics card in it and I guess you could say time was spent stress testing it. Well, happy to say the card has been good and it feels sweet to play games with the PC not wanting to cry for momma! πŸ™‚ A test video’s below if you’d like to see if you can spot any change, but either you tube is funky or my modem is weird, the audio was out of sync when I viewed the upload, let me know please.

 

I’m debating on doing a full play through of the game’s story mode out of good memories of it from years ago, but not sure, cast your vote! πŸ™‚ Amazon finally sent the redeem info for the free DOOM, which I redeemed it on Steam and have installed. Haven’t tried to play it, still trying to bind keys to the game pad.

I haven’t forgotten the promise of reviewing the main Full Metal Panic series, (not the spin offs). Actually finished the last disc Friday and have an idea how to word the review, please bear with me. πŸ™‚ After that, I’ll revisit Elfen Lied.
