Personal Blog For September 2017: I Have No Excuses….

This is a late post & I’m sorry for that. There are no excuses I can give other than being tired, caught up in trying to get thru red tape to get a wheelchair and wanting to keep to myself to write, all topics for this post. Before I start however, if any of my family reads this, this blog’s like my venting outlet & subjects are just me blowing off steam. Stop reading if you don’t like is on the menu.

Let me start this off positively. For awhile now, whenever I write, it has transformed into much more than I’ve ever thought possible. The novel alone, I’ve described a well thought out fight scene, detailing it well, but beyond that, my erotic stories have seen the same level of detail. It feels great & I’ll show off some work soon! 🙂

Alright, here’s where I get a bit snarky and probably be viewed as a jack hole, but eh. Though Tekken is still played by me on Steam, things have changed. I’ve been kicked from the group I was an officer of and wasn’t given a reason, (but I guess pointing out cheaters who macro the game reason to be kicked then)… All I gotta say is I hope the owner has fun with them.

 

Furthermore, quick matches aren’t played anymore due to the way the game is with patches. Before it let you see what fighter the other player uses and their wins. Now, I could be matched against some expert with 700 wins, but I wouldn’t know until it was too late. So you can call me chicken, but I like what sanity I have left. Out of the “friends” I’ve made on Steam, only two invite me to play them, sad but true.

 

Last topic, the wheelchair issue. Called for my insurance card and it is on the way, or so they said! Meanwhile, this pile of dog poop has gotten worse and I have no backup chair due to family destroying it, which for this family, is expected!

 

I’ll try blogging like I did before, sorry for the long time away.

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. 🙂

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 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!

 

 

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. 🙂

 

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! 🙂 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 know  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! 🙂

 

Lastly,  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……..
