Brothers Conflict - Episode 5 [v.P]

Hey Bro! It's that time of the week again!
Conflict 5 - Flood/Inundation
In a nutshell:
  1. Timeskip from last ep's December to March. 
  2. Ema, Masaomi, Tsubaki, Azusa, Wataru and Natsume go Cherry blossom viewing. Ema goes off to buy drinks and she bumps into Subaru by coincidence; when Ema and Subaru returns to the group Natsume gets all jealous of Subaru being with Ema. Wataru wanders off to see the ducks in the lake, and then in order to save Wataru, Natsume falls into the lake. Change of scene to back at home, Natsume tries to confront Subaru again about him taking basketball seriously. [End first half]
  3. Ema returns home from school, to find out that Subaru usually does the cleaning of the house. Iori shows up and gives Ema a red tulip, which is a confession of love, and Juli goes spaz. Ukyo and Ema spends some intimate time in the kitchen with Ukyo teaching her how to cook, only to be busted by Hikaru and Juli.
  4. Ema attends Subaru's basketball match. Natsume finds Ema at the match and is surprised (jealous) that she came only because "Subaru asked her to". Subaru wins the match by throwing a buzzer beater (rip off Kuroko no Basuke). Subaru hugs Ema and tells her "It's all because you came to cheer me on" that he was able to win the game. He then confesses to Ema and asks her out, only to be busted by Natsume. 

Rhycen has entered the game!

Hey there, remember me? No? Well I guess that's to be expected. I've been quite "busy" (read lazy), so I haven't posted here in ages. Well, I'm back and ready to rumble!

What will I be posting this time? Well, I'll be posting gaming related stuff that happens to matter to me. I'm not really one to look up gaming updates constantly to get the latest scoop as quickly as possible, but if anything is particularly interesting to me I'll be sure to post it here. Other than that, I'll post my gaming activity; games I've been playing, interesting experiences I have while gaming, and other stuff like that. I'll try to be frequent in my posts, and I hope you read them all. My life is just so incredibly interesting after all!

I'll just briefly bring you all up to speed on my gaming so far:

  • Due to recent sales on Steam, my game library has expanded yet again. I've yet to even start a lot of my games. 
  • I bought Civ V, which I've been enjoying with friends. 
  • I just started playing Final Fantasy 7 on Steam, and I'll be playing that pretty regularly. 
  • Bought FEZ and started playing that. It's such an amazing game and so well made in every aspect. 
  • I recently installed Dark Souls on Steam, and I'm looking forward to getting into that. However I need to work out some controller issues first before I can enjoy it properly.
  • Outside of Steam, I bought into the Cube World alpha, and it's been very enjoyable. For an alpha, it's very well made, and I'm very excited about future improvements and updates.
  • I haven't played League of Legends regularly for a couple of weeks now, due to my over abundance of other games to play, and also because I hate that god-awful game. However I occasionally play with friends if I happen to be in the mood for a game or two.
  • As for my greatest love, Starcraft 2, I have been out of the game since the beginning of the year. I had a 5 month long LoL phase, which left no time for SC2. Also, I have almost no friends that play SC2, and almost all of them play LoL, so that's how I justify my abandoning of my favourite game. I'm always looking for opportunities to get back into the game so hopefully that'll happen some time soon.
  • I'm looking to start playing Tera Online soon, since it's now free to play. For those who don't know, Tera is an MMO with a focus on action oriented combat. It was initially released with a subscription model, but has since become free to play. The combat is quite similar to Monster Hunter, but more fantasy MMO-ish. It's the kind of game I was looking for when I started playing Guild Wars 2, so I'm pretty keen to start playing. That'll be sometime within the next couple of weeks.

Due to my studies, my gaming will become less frequent in the next month or so, so please bear with me.

That's enough from me for now.
May all your games be noob free!

I'm in love with Kakki's voice, especially his appearance in Hakkenden, Makai Ouji and Kamisama Inai Nichiyoubi.

One week in and Ubuntu Edge has made history

edge handsetSince its reveal last Monday afternoon, Canonical’s campaign to raise $32 million to fund a limited run of high-end dual-booting smartphones has caught the attention of the press, users and the wider technology community alike.

In less than 12 hours the Edge campaign raised over $2 million, smashing crowd-funding milestones across the board in the process.

While the early momentum behind the campaign has dissipated a little these last few days the campaign is still looking healthy. It’s currently at over $7 million – a figure that puts the Edge within touching distance of the largest amount ever raised on a crowd-funding site.

With 23 days and just shy of $25 million left to muster, Ubuntu could yet add several more records & achievements to its collection.

This campaign has raised the profile of Ubuntu, demonstrated the innovation and enthusiasm of the people behind it, and rallied its user-base unlike any crowd-funder before it.

New Samsung commercial about the GS4 on a plane

Galaxy S 4—Ready for Take-off - YouTube 34 000641

Samsung never fails to amuse me with their pretty hilarious ads "comparing" their flagship product the Samsung Galaxy S4 with their rival, the iPhone. This time round, we have a bunch of guys on a plane and one guy pulls out an GS4. The short commercial shows the Air Gestures that the GS4 is capable of and all the other cool features it packs.
