Battle (Forge) On!

March 31, 2009

Just recently, my brother pestered me to download a new game, Battle Forge. Apparently I’m downloading the demo version, since I need to pay for the full version. My brother just told me to: Take it as a chance to try it out.

And since I really had nothin’ much to do, might as well go with his idea.

So I created an account, logged in, and got jumped straight into a tutorial.

Sorry about constantly forgetting to take screenshots. The gameplay is somewhat like a Warcraft/Starcraft game. Build a settlement, create troops, and hack away at your opponents. Thing is, the gameplay revolves around cards. Cards are used to summon troops, cast spells, create buildings, etc. It works somewhat like Magic: The Gathering, or Duel Masters, in which Mana is needed to use cards. In all, there are 4 elements to be utilized. Fire, Frost, Nature and Darkness. I picked Frost, since I played a water deck in Duel Masters before. :3

Graphics-wise, it isn’t too bad at all. You can say it’s like a better version of Warcraft. In fact, I have a weird suspicion that Blizzard may have been involved in making this game.



Music Delve: Life Goes On

March 30, 2009

So today, I had a nostalgic pang for Gundam Seed/Destiny music. Most probably due to seeing all those Gundam 00 series Figurines at Plaza Singapore’s Comic Fiesta. The first song that promptly poped into my mind was ‘Life Goes On’, sung by Mika Arisaka. And I had loved it because it sounds truly amazing.

So while going through youtube, I had found something that caught my eye. A vocaloid version of Life Goes On! I couldn’t have possibly missed that out, so I went to check them out.

The first video was by Miku Hatsune and Megurine Luka.

And the second video is by Kagamine Len and Rin.

I love the twin’s version. It sounds really harmonious and beautiful.

This is Zhlink, over and out.

So it was the day I was awaiting. Kuwabara, or known as Black Rose.
It took place last Sunday at Liang Court. It was supposed to be about revival; about bringing back past cosplays.

It was not what I had really expected.

The Recent Week

March 27, 2009

Yep. It’s time to look away from my otaku life for a few moments and look at the recent past week.

Last Sunday, I was working with a friend at Toa Payoh for a part time job for the SSO, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. (more…)

Music Delve: Doll Judgement

March 23, 2009

Today, we’re going to look at one of Perfect Cherry Blossom’s bosses, Alice Margatroid: The 7-Coloured Puppeteer. And she also makes an appearance in Touhou 9.5 Shoot the Bullet.

This would be Alice’s theme song, Doll Judgement. However, nowadays we refer it as: Marissa stole the Precious Thing. The thing being Alice’s heart.

Lyrics can be found here.
However, mistakes happens, even when you’re a fictional awesome character who can shoot out hundreds of bullets per second.

Well, this would be another Music Delve. I’ll see if I can put up any comics soon..

A Maid’s Everyday Adventure

March 22, 2009

Foudn this while surfing around youtube and pixiv. It talks about the daily lives of the residents of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, along with some other characters from the touhou series.

This series is being done by colonel_AKI on pixiv.

I’ll admit this time, it’s entirely my fault. I wanted to set up a “Daily Comic” thing in this blog, but then I keep delaying when I wanna scan my pictures and comics.

It’s seriously frustrating the heck out of me.

The above FSN version, according to sources, is the “original” Mou Ikkai!

It’s just one of those looping songs which gets more addictive (or annoying) as you keep hearing it.

Apparently, just like the Get Down songs, this song is kinda like an internet meme. The original song is Sakuranbo (Cherry) by Ai Otsuka. has a Touhou version as well, right here.

But for now, I’ll keep listening to this song over and over again, since it’s already stuck in my head.

Music Delve: Promised Dawn

March 17, 2009

On December 2002, Type-Moon and French-Bread made a 2d visual novel/fighting game for the PC, named Melty Blood. It became rather popular rather quickly, due to it being part of the famous visual novel Tsukihime.

Most of the people playing Melty Blood would either have Act Cadenza for the Pc or PS2, and a small handful who have the original version. In certain arcades, there exists the latest version of the game, Actress Again.

But enough of these stories for now, I’m here to talk about the music of this fantastic game.

Meet Lappie-Chan.

Yep yep. Even though I couldn’t get a persocom like those in Chobits, I just got a new laptop today which does nicely as a substitute for my fantasies.

Not that anything bad’ll really happen or anythin.
