Libraries And Other Rental Services

Posted by An/A Blade , in Computers, Gaming, General Life, Random Dec 03 2012 · 159 views

[Whee, Scratches]
This is to anyone who rents games from libraries and other rental services. Please do yourself, and everyone else who rents the game after you a favour, and stop using the disks as frisbees! >_< I'm starting to get tired of getting games or music, and having to hope that it works, instead of, you know, not every getting to the logo screens for the company that produced the game. -_-
I could be playing Persona 4 right now, but instead, I can't even get past the 'PlayStation 2' logo screen, because it keeps just displaying a black screen after that. And since the movie I rented worked all the way through, and I can load up Mega Man X7, I know it's not the system, even if it was doing similar stuff before I even got to put the disk in. But even then, unplugging it helped there, and the main menu screen for the PS2 wouldn't even appear. Here, it loads everything, recognizes the disk, and even gets past the PS2 logo after checking the disk, but yet, it won't go any FURTHER than that. And of course, I checked the disk first... It's pretty badly scratched.
Basically, the entire surface has scratches that alternate rows, but go around in a circle eventually. They don't seem that deep, but when you have almost the entire surface covered because of those scratches, and the various other scratches that inevitably appear in these types of situations, it's pretty easy to know why the game won't load. Which brings up an interesting question: How did the last person who had the disk even manage to play it!? 0_o
Basically, take better care of your games, movies, and CDs(Even if it's not 'yours' full-time), because the next people to get it may become rather annoyed at you if the thing's unplayable. -_-'


No Dreams Are The Absolution

Posted by An/A Blade , in General Life, Music, Sonic The Hedgehog Dec 02 2012 · 236 views

[Why Can't I Sleep?! ;_;]
So, I'm currently running on MAYBE an hour of sleep from last night, if I'm lucky. I stayed awake most of the night because I got spooked by stuff I read(Think Slenderman or Ben; except it was neither of them. =P). Yeah, yeah, I shouldn't let it affect me, but that's part of the problem with me reading it a while before I went to bed. >_> Luckily, I learned from that, and that's never happening again. That was just not fun. >_>
So, the second reason for the title? The new song stuck in my head. Why haven't I tried to get it out? IT'S NO USE! ... Because it's Silver the Hedgehog's theme song, Dreams of an Absolution. Say what you want about Sonic '06, but it had good music. =P Heard a new remix of it last night, and it quickly because my favourite track from Sonic '06. =P If you pay attention, or hear an instrumental remix of Dreams, however... The artist used part of the Green Hill Zone theme for it. =D I think something else was sampled, in addition. I could be wrong, though.
I still haven't played Sonic '06, though, and I don't really want to. =P


New Blog Layout

[What, Something New?]

What's this, Blade's changing stuff? And updating more than once a day? This must be some kind of miracle. =P

So, yeah, finally stopped being lazy, and updated the blog's layout a bit, finally splitting the over-crowded bio content block into three different blocks, and also bringing back the approval links. Now I just have to track down the different approvals I've gotten that I haven't put into my content blocks yet. =(

The Stats block is an oddity, not sure what else should go in there. =/

[I'm Drowning, Droooooowning!!]

I have waaaaaay too many categories. ._.' I have even more now, since I've been going back to update my old entries with categories, since the update turned the old categories to tags. =P

It is interesting, however, to see all the old entries, and how things have changed in the past 4 years. Serves as a very interesting comparison. I still fail at keeping up to date with my blog, though, so some things never change. =P

That said, would anyone want to see some of the old concepts I used to have, like lyric entries? Basically, what would you guys like to see from me, aside from Blender stuff every so often? =P


Sonic The Hedgehog

New, Format
[You're Too Slow!]

I'm gonna try a new format for my alternate titles, just to mention. Hopefully nothing eventually corresponds to an actual tag. ^^'

Anyway... So, one reason I've been off more than normal the last few days, is because of Sonic, specifically Sonic Generations, since I got that a few days ago.

Second reason, but more so why I haven't been on at night sometimes, would be Megaman 2. I CAN in fact defeat Airman, so take that as you will. It was on Difficult, and without the Leaf Shield. Put Item 2 to use, as well. =P

Third reason? I finally got Super Smash Bros. Brawl working again! Which means I can once again spend time to try to get 50-100 hours in multiplayer only, with no-one to crush fight against except the Bots. =P They really didn't make that easy to do, since Classic Mode, All Star Mode, Boss Battles, Subspace, and even WI-FI of all things doesn't work for that goal. ._.; Ah well; nearly to 20 hours as it is, then I'll just need 10 more.

That said, I'm nearly to the end of the unlocks, which saddens me. =( I want to eventually play through again, but I'm not sure how... Might be with the Wii U, but there's no way I'll be getting that any time soon, and without the Gamecube Controllers, I can't play Brawl as it should be played(No Classic Controllers unfortunately. I really need to get one, yes, but...), and I can't play my Virtual Console games, period, except for the handful of NES games I have, so I won't be transferring my data likely.

If I'm lucky, I'll be able to get a Classic Controller Pro soon enough, but since I just got two new Gamecube Controllers, there's no rush, except for Monster Hunter Tri. So yeah. =P

Back to Sonic, though, playing Generations has really gotten me back into a Sonic mood. I'm wanting to find a Sonic avatar now, and finish the games I have once again. Yes, I may have forgotten to mention it in the past, but I'm a Sonic fan. =P Just not once of those crazy ones that seem to be everywhere nowadays. xD


Megaman 2's Dr. Wily Stage 1 Theme

Posted by An/A Blade , in Creativity, General Life, Megaman, Music Nov 24 2012 · 227 views

Alternative Titles: I Finally Got To Combine The Creativity Category With The Music Category!


So, what have I been up to, other than disappearing for my birthday and using Blender? Well, getting a slight cold. But aside from that? Playing Cave Story and Megaman. But that's not what this is about, oh no. What this is about, is me playing my keyboard. And no, not the thing I'm using to type this; I mean what's essentially a piano. And what overplayed song from Megaman 2 have I been playing more often than not recently? No, not the title theme, I'm still learning that. No, the song that's probably only second to the X vs. Zero fight from Megaman X5 in terms of remixes. The Dr. Wily Stage 1 theme.

I've been trying it for a couple days now, but today and last night was the first time I actually got further than an off-key redition of the first part. I actually figured out the notes, for when you're only playing one note at a time(Since I still fail at playing the Keyboard with 'chords', and it's closer to the 8-bit version this way), in part thanks to different videos on the net. I still mess up some of the notes when I try to speed through it at the normal speed, but when I concentrate, the only times I mess up, are me hitting the wrong notes because I can't reach far enough; or me just missing the right key by accident.

My next try, will likely be the Protoman Whistle Theme used for MM3's ending, but we'll see.


Random Blender Render

Alternative Titles: I'm Back Baby!, Never Quoting Austin Powers Again For A While I Promise


So; I stopped blogging for a while. My bad. ^^' I haven't really been doing much of note lately... I also haven't really been doing THAT much with Blender; mostly just trying to get proportions right for stuff like humanoid creations. My past two attempts haven't really done that great. This is more of a test, and is a more chibi look than there should be; however, I rather like the look of it. So, without further ado, I introduce what I call 'Cube Man Zero', as per my save file's name. =P

Cube Man Zero, Fight, for everlasting peace!

Okay, okay, so it looks pretty barren. That's partially because it'll be a simply test for things like animation and such. Though, if it works well enough to be modified and updated in terms of design, then I'll probably use it over some of my more complex design tests that haven't gone very far. =P

So yeah, it's not SUPPOSED to be truly complex or anything, but I think it's good for a test model, and I wanted to show it off, since, well, I haven't exactly updated anything recently. =P


Master Sword Render

Alternative Titles: It's About Time.


Well, it's kinda been completed for a few months, but, well, I haven't had a chance to really get a screenshot. The textures aren't all on, and probably won't be for a while, but it works rather well as it is. =)

Link to rendered image.

I need to scale it down, if I ever use that for a test sword model, it outscales the rest of my test models by a Longshot. ... Which gives me an idea for a possible object to make next, if I continue a Zelda pattern. =P

If you guys want, of course, you can give me requests for stuff to make. =D Speaking of which, I need to work on that tea cup that Alex had suggested a while back; I got distracted by the Game Engine stuff. xD


Pokemon Black 2

Posted by An/A Blade , in Gaming, Nintendo, Pokemon Oct 07 2012 · 176 views

Alternative Titles: I Might Be Off For A Few Days Now


So; yeah. I just got Pokemon Black 2 a couple hours ago, and I'm just starting it now. Between something else I had to work on, and reading up on everything, I've been too busy to actually start it. That changes now.

Of course, the first thing I did, was go on Mystery Gift and get Genesect. =P I can't pass up that opportunity, even if it does end over a month from the time of this entry. xD

Next, I'll activate Memory Link, and then start. I want things fully set up, so I don't need my second DS for a while. If I could set up Game Sync before starting, I would. =P

Alternative Titles: 882 Notifications What.


So, yeah, haven't been active here for the past week or so, yeah... I apologize heavily for anyone waiting on me. But as the alternative title says, I have an abundance of notifications, and a case of 'too many things to do, so little time to do them'. =/ Minecraft didn't help any. =P

Also, also! I have a wireless set of headphones! The manual for it is partially in engrish, though. =P Doesn't matter, though, as it was rather easy to figure out. =P I also have a wireless mouse for my laptop that works fairly well. It was five dollars, and the headphones were about 9-ish, so it was a fairly good deal. =D

Also, Metric is an awesome band.
