HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010 folks! I hope everyone had a blast on the countdown celebration.
I am far behind on my Blog, my blame is that i spent too much on gaming *grin* especially on Modern Warfare 2 and Fable 2. Not to mention i am marathon-ing at least 2 or 4 episodes per day of Farscape on Netflix for over 3 weeks now. and… wait… watching Hayate no Gotoku, some random Netflix DVD I rented, and …. more… things.
IN ANOTHER WORDS…. Much to do, So little time.
1. Life and Others Related –
Lets say my 1st and foremost update I would like to bring out is about my Niece, she was born in the 21st of December. Her expected date of birth was on January 12th next week! Thus made her a 3 week premmie. She is so small and tiny and seems to be quite fragile… I cant really bring myself to lift or carry her.
Her given name is Gabrielle (with Chinese name of ‘雪琪’), some of my coworkers commented her Chinese name is more beautiful than her English name, which i for one quite agree for (kudos to my mom to thought for such beautiful name) and it has a very good meaning too. Funny thing is the instance my mom told me to call her ‘小雪’ I was smiling inside and thought ‘I think I’ll call her Koyuki instead ^^;… (I am acting like a Japanophile here hahaha)
I’d hope (and pray) that her attitude will not be the same as my brother-in-law as he must be the most stingy-egoistical (not sure what to call it) person I have ever know, and yes… unfortunately my relationship with my brother-in-law is rather complicated and not pleasant ones.
Regardless there is a new family member in the House ^.^; and that I hope is a good thing. Note: Will try post pictures late though.
2. Hobbies and Figures –
Recently i went back to try to do another attempt of Spray Painting, results are… terrible, It ended up very badly and I am really disappointed with my work. Around at the same time, I was also playing around with brushes too, same results…. terrible… terrible… terrible…
Aside from the failed experiment I managed to get ahold of the Yoko Real Image Ver. from Max Factory. which i have kept hidden in my closet (or my mom will be like ‘What the Heck is that!’ sigh…) I did pay quite a lot for it unfortunately, but still managed to get a hold of it slightly lower than the MSRP of 9800Yen. I bought it from amiami.com (you can find the link on the side) where i have been pre-ordering it for quite sometime. and to be honest with you I liked the store.
My 1st purchase with them has and have to be shipped with EMS which where my money actually sinked down. Otherwise… I’ll be getting much cheaper price. I paid approx. of $30 for the shipment and its really making my wallet cry. However their service and communication is very good, I for one would like to suggest them to anyone who are interested to buy some figurines. Their reply turn over is pretty quick and most of my questions were answered within less than 24 hour, making m
There’s a bit of news here and there on some figurine I saw, as I am interested into them but their price is… well… slightly a bit.. ahem… expensive. One being 12,800 yen and the other 6,800 yen. I’ll post that later on some other time in the other post
3. Gaming related –
Yep, as a hardcore gamer, this i where i sink so much time. with the releases such as Modern Warfare 2 since last 2 months I’ve been playing that game like an addict, though to be honest i am not a very good player (my kill/dead ratio is around 0.001 very very bad) . There’s actually nothing special about Modern Warfare 2 to be honest, its just plain and simple, no complex things to begin with anyways. you pick your class with guns and equipments, then go and jump into battle, that’s pretty much it. Still… I am somewhat cant get myself off from playing the game.
This game is quite mindless at some point and most likely its hard to apply element of surprises due to the ‘Killcam’ that is always ON whenever you play some of the matches (mostly are in Deathmatches and Dominations), and plenty of BS moves that seems to be… moving away from the ‘Call of Duty’ concept of Real (past Call of Duty gives me better experience), those weird perks and all is something that imho droves away the game original means of Call of Duty, but then again the game is called Modern Warfare 2 (not Call of Duty), like what my friend said ‘When the next time you see a Predator Missile, go hide into a building made out of Tin and you’ll be safe’ . I am compelled to sell my Modern Warfare 2 now hahaha……
With the upcoming year there are several anticipated game that I have been looking forward to: Record of Agarest War, Resonance of Fate, Final Fantasy XIII, Bayonetta (which is already out), Heavy Rain, White Knight Chronicles, and MAG. And most funny thing is… most of them are in PS3. Since i thought i’ll be playing hefty plenty on PS3, my old PS3 really wont do me any good.
I bought a PS3 about 7 months ago and I am dumb, I should waited till they announce the price drop in September 2009. I bought the 160GB ones and the price well… its the same as the 250GB slim right now. Not to mention it is an Ebay item and It actually has problem to begin with. Over heat and Loud fan noise, therefore Noise pollution, I am a very person who loved game soundtracks and when you have something buzzing loud and plus heat… that is simply an annoyance and i assume longer exposures will also cause a health issue. My friend’s PS3 Console is proven to be very quiet and not much heat from its console. I finally made my decision since yesterday and I will be selling my old one; disregarding the loss of my investment on the 1st PS3 I bought. I did went and have the PS3 fixed too even because the blue ray drive went bad after a nonstop run of Demon’s Soul that went about 12 hours), so yeap if i am thinking my loss.. i would cry out loud and learned lesson not to buy console from Ebay EVER EVER EVER again!!!
I’ll put on a tad bits of thoughts and ‘imho'(s) on the titles mentioned later on.
~~~~~ Thats a wrap from now as of whats going on and all hopefully able to post some again in the future ~~~~~
