Well, that was unexpected.

It certainly was not how I wanted the giveaway to go, but it looks like it was a bust this time around. By the way, that's only 1 entry as the other entry was me, as I was testing if it needed a valid email.

Perhaps the prize was not big enough. Maybe if I made the prize a PS4 everyone would have jumped on it >__>

I guess if there's one thing I learned, it's that I should just focus on healing my leg first. It's really taking up a lot of my time these days, the amount of pain I go through and the amount of care needed to prevent it from re-injury, it's not something to be ignored.

Here's hoping my next giveaway has a much bigger turnout next time!

mangatron's Holiday 2014 giveaway!

December. A year ago, these cops and lawyers wouldn't dare.... wait, that's a line from the Joker in The Dark Knight....

A year ago, 10 days from now, I received a new hard drive and my very first Figma. I was about to blog about both of my glorious purchases when I was devastated by the worst food poisoning of my life. Yes, for 8 years of food poisoning, this one was destructive as it eventually led to undernourishment and the eventual breakdown of my muscles in my left leg, an injury that I am still recovering from.

One of the things I wanted to do last year was celebrate my upcoming 10 years at Animesuki by holding a giveaway. I couldn't do it then, this time, I am determined to do it. My first every giveaway of this type:

$20 USD worth of Gaming digital codes at Play-Asia


a Rafflecopter giveaway

(If you can't see the above widget, you may have to enable javascript or cookies. I allow rafflecopter related stuff to be safe)

Yup, I'm giving away the equivalent of $20 worth of a digital code(s) to whatever gaming/online service you utilize. Visit the site here to see what's eligible for at Play-asia. ANYTHING DIGITAL on that page is eligible. Now, for the proviso's of this giveaway:

Now, I said $20 worth, that means up to $20 of what's available on the Play-asia digital codes section. That could include PC game codes, Nintendo eshop credit, iTunes, Google, Steam, etc. $20 worth meaning if you want $10 Nintendo eshop credit and $10 Playstation Network credit then that works too.

What doesn't work is going past $20, for example iTunes and Xbox do not have $20 cards, only $25 and/or $15 in the case of Xbox. Xbox and iTune's though have $10 cards so 2 of those work. Basically if the face value is UP TO $20, the winner is good for that. Note that I am using US Dollars as an example, and I'm sure there might be someone who buys Japanese digital codes, maybe Hong Kong digital codes, if the winner is in Europe then I'm sure they would buy card in Euro's or GBP. Just use a currency converter site to calculate amounts that equal up to $20 USD Face value (the cost printed on the card). The winner cannot ask for a prize exceeding $20 USD.

To enter:

  • In the above Rafflecopter widget, enter your Animesuki username and a fake email valid email. Oh gosh, don't worry it won't be visible to the public. I will be contacting the winner via Animesuki PM.


Now, for the rules:

  1. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.
  2. Only girls with twintails and D-cup or higher boobies can enter.
  3. Children under 13 must have their parent's approval. No joke, I'm not going to be responsible for someone else's kid >__>
  4. This giveaway is open to Animesuki members who joined the forum before October 2014. The reason for this is simple: I love Fall 2014's anime, and I know some people might have joined in September to join in on the discussions. This is also to ensure a newbie doesn't swoop in and take the prize without having had much at all to do with the forum. I wanted this giveaway to be something fun for the members who have put up with me over the years, and those who joined at the dawn of Fall 2014's anime schedule.
  5. There will be no refunds. I have purchased from Play-asia before, so I can vouch for them. But recently some folks have been reporting codes not working for Nintendo's eshop some time before the release of Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. Such is the of Nintendo's network, not Play-asia, but in the event the winner's digital codes do not work, the winner has to honestly notify me about it so that I can pass it on to Play-asia.
  6. ANYONE IN THE WORLD CAN ENTER. Anyone with internet access to the Animesuki forums, anyways. Play-asia carries a wide host of different region codes, so I'm sure the winner will have something to choose from.
  7. Giveaway ends on the 12th, I think during my time zone (GMT +8 Hong Kong time). The reason for this is to avoid last minute holiday rushes, and in the event the Play-asia staff may not to be available after that date to handle online orders during the holidays (everyone needs a break sometime :/)
  8. The winner agree's that their answer will be publicly displayed for all the world to see. Don't be afraid to share with the world about your waifu/husbando, stand tall and be proud!
  9. In the unfortunate event the winner is not a gamer or has no multimedia device at all, then an alternate prize will be discussed. IF it's within my capability's to do so. There can't be a gamer-less person out there, right?
  10. Did you know that if you massage a girl's chest, they'll grow bigger over time?*

Ahem, there it is! My first giveaway ever! But I'm sure some folks are wonder why now and why is it gaming related, so here come the FAQs:


Q: So why you playing santa now? Shouldn't you use the money for your leg?
A: Well, I mentioned a couple of weeks ago to a friend at Animesuki about how a little e-commerce boomed into my biggest earnings yet. See, I've been into e-commerce since 2000, that's 14 years of dabbling into the world of e-commerce, and it wasn't until November this year when I was handling at least 20 orders a day. The reason why I suddenly did all that was because I was angry, frustrated by the misery I suffered in October from not only 1, but 2 food poisoning incidents AND an accidental ingestion of dishwashing detergent (long miserable story for that one). Like in 2013, I was angry and eventually bought my much needed hard drive and my wonderful Yukiko Amagi figma. This time, I'm using my misfortune for something positive for someone else. 


Q: So why gaming related?
A: Well, that's a story I'll blog about later. As you might know I rarely blogged this year, much of that thanks to my leg, but this time I'll show why November was truly a month to remember, 14 years of e-commerce and I finally found out what to do.

Q: So why didn't you get a surgery by now if November was such a good month?
A: I have a long standing distrust for all things hospital, all because of their "suggestions" that eventually led to my parent's following their suggestions, which of course were wrong, and so I've lived all my life suffering from a number of things. When my health records were eventually lost in the worst mishap of my family's life, I lived away from the hospital since until my clinic visit in 2006 in Germany to treat my food poisoning. What the doctor suggested to me was something I didn't expect him to say, which is why I still follow some of his advice to this day. But that's my stomach. So far I've recovered from every food poisoning incident since 2006, and since then I am hospital free, and I intend to keep it that way. It was about in June this year when I brought up the suggestion of surgery, as I was frustrated of no signs of change in my swelled up leg, and I was advised that doctor's in the Philippines aren't exactly the reliable ones to count on on something rather serious, and I was told there were several deaths involved in surgery's (I've also read about these on the local news). And since I am not capable of going on a plane to a more reliable country, I decided to wing it out. And I've improved since. I saw change, and I want to see my natural recovery to the end. So much money and effort from my wonderful family has gone into my leg, that I will see it through no matter what. And perhaps it's my stubbornness where I don't want to thank a doctor for fixing me up ;)

Q: Why only $20? You stingy scrooge :P
A: I would have made the prize a hentai game from mangagamer. That sound better? >:D

Q: Is this giveaway really for real?
A: Yes. I am good for it. Money has already been put aside for it, so unless a cute girl falls from the sky and lands her cute butt on my face and then tells me to marry her or else the universe is doomed, I will tend to this giveaway upon the due date.

Q: So who is your waifu?
A: Oh, like it says on the header, I gonna marry a twintail. Uh huh, I ain't married at all. Perfectly bachelory :)


GOOD LUCK TO ALL WHO ENTER!


*disclaimer: the mangatron is purely speculating. There was no couple brave enough to try out this theory, so it will remain a theory until a couple proves it's real :P

Feel my Birthday! Newgen edition! What?

I coined that term, yep. Newgen means all the changes that happened in just the last 4 years, and how much it changed those born within the last 14 years. Kids these days I tell ya...

So why the newgen edition anyways? Well, a lot of things have changed since my last birthday. My left leg is still kaput, my precious DS Lite's hinge finally ripped the ribbon cable for the top screen, rendering it half useful. I have Company of Heroes 2, which came out summer last year, after my birthday, so this will be my first birthday with that game. Except my computer absolutely lags with that game. There's a fault in my CPU that if it gets too hot, the GPU downclocks to 200mhz. I've done everything I could to cool my CPU but in the end, I need a new case >__>

I've known that for a while now, but it didn't bother me because I can remedy that by downclocking my CPU. That's why I've been spending my spare change on 3DS games, something I enjoy more :O So without further ado, this post brought to you late no thanks to a problem with my knee >_<

 
That's funny, shrink wrapped inside the shrink-wrapped box...

And for the first time in a long time, I buy myself a game on my birthday! (this took 2 months of whatever was left from my health spending) Well actually I received it yesterday, from my local gameshop, Conception II joins my birthday!
Don't you just love it when your girl puts one of your belongings on her crotch, daring you to get it?

Oh yeah, I wanted to blog about my first figma ever, Yukiko Amagi from the Persona series. I was supposed to do so last year to commemorate the retirement of my 250GB hard drive. Ironically life hasn't been so good since >__> don't ask why her, when I haven't involved myself in the Persona games or the anime, it's a.... perverted story ;)

Last played February 27

So let's kick things off with Company of Heroes 2! V-E day on me b-day! Actually, due to my hurting leg, I haven't played it since February 27, around the time I last bent my left knee. I only launched Steam to keep it updated, as I do not want the updates to pile up (they updated a lot of times this year >__<)

One of those updates is in preparation for the Western Armies, above you can see the 2 free commanders they gave out, German's get the Puma armored car and the Russians get the Sherman tank. Way too unbalanced, what no western tank for the Jerry's?
So, as usual, Vire River Valley is my fav map to play, unfortunately, this map had to be created by the nice people at Steam Workshop, and as far as I can tell there's no victory point option. Look at the above image, the AI was pretty dumb during my match with enemy AI (well, I gave them Standard difficulty, so heh).
Just leading the charge with my Stug III

The one thing I don't like about some of these custom maps are the population caps, where I could only have 2 tanks in addition to my defensive line.
Thanks to my tiny army, I had to rely on bomber support to destroy their structures.
Look at that, they managed to call in a T34 and it destroyed my Stug (lower right smoke), and the prick hid among the tree's, out of sight of my Tiger, but it could still fire at me due to their bases visual range.
Thanks to the loss of my Stug, I called in some heavy artillery: the Brummbar!
This is a really rare event. Despit their destroyed HQ, the AI called in reinforcements to fix their base. I very rarely seen this since the Company of Heroes 1 days, the option is there but the AI never used it until the latest CoH 2 updates (when I got the game December last year, the AI never did this).
My tanks were elsewhere, so I had to frag bomb them. Sorry, AI panzershreck buddy :P
That's where my tanks were. A T34 showed up, and when my Tiger came over to help, the T34 said 'screw this' and rammed my Brummbar, that's why it's engine is damaged.
I went after the last remaining Soviet base, and they actually managed to call in the ISU-152. That monster nearly blew out my Brummbar.
I won of course, but whenever the Tiger enters the game, if I was the Soviets, I have  HELL of a time against it. Those numbers above are a terror.
My small defensive line, the only other troops I had defending the only road into German territory.

One other reason why I don't play CoH2 much is because one needs to be online just to rank up. As you can see above, I am only rank 49, which would have been much higher had my ISP not been a total jerk.

Hmm, I wonder if I can make her into Atago >__>

Let's move on to my long standing ritual, Feel the Magic! As revenge for last time, I took on the mini games "Cart" and "Bus Stop" again. And I freaking lost again! What the heck man, for Cart I was rubbing the screen the wrong way, but Bus Stop, ugh my aim was off.
In case you're wondering, Bus Stop is like bowling; I'm supposed to roll the protagonist across the traffic crowded road to bowl the fan club on the other side. As you can see, I missed one guy >__<
For the sequel Rub Rabbits, I gave my waifu a nurse hat + chinadress! YEAH, I need a nurse right now, to uh... cast a mahou shoujo spell on my leg :P
Once again, it's revenge time for last year, "Dip" and "Dinner". If you're wondering about Dip (above pic), it's a mini game where I have to keep the piranha's away from my waifu while she washes her beautiful legs in the creek.... damnit I can't believe I keep losing this, YOU STOOPID FISHES LEAVE MY WAIFU ALONE, I'M SUPPOSED TO LICK HER LEGS NOT YOU.

As for Dinner, you might wonder why this one is my nemesis. There's 2 amusing reason, #1, I always thought it was a easy mini-game, because #2, it's a game where you tilt the protagonist on the bottom screen to eat the incoming food the girl throws, and avoid the rotten spoiled food. Yeah, I feel like it's a life simulation for me on how to avoid getting food poisoned so much >__>

Newcomer Conception II is also aboard for Feel My Birthday! I don't know if this game is going to be a part of my birthday rituals, but considering the premise, where I HAVE TO MAKE BABIES WITH CUTE GIRLS (stop looking at me like that), I sure hope it's a part of my rituals :D

Oh the animated cut scenes are a treat! Her name is Ruby, and SHE'S MY WAIFU. Well... it's too bad she's a part of the science division or something, they never said she's able to have babies :(

She has a reward for me! What could it be? Does she want to sit on me? Is she going to spank me? OH THE SUSPENSE ALONE IS KILLING ME XD

Well, I haven't gone that far in. It was... rather lengthy from the start to when you go to your dorm room. At least the girls are cute :P

Hey, it's my birthday, not Selena!

One other addition I am happy to welcome to my rituals, Pokemon X! I can't believe the fun stuff they had for birthdays, you know some people like to criticize Nintendo, but I for one love what they do with their games, little things like above just puts a smile on my face.
Look at that, that's just so awesome.

At a time when I've been really hurting due to my injured leg, it's reading stuff like this that warms me heart.
That's funny. I got way more birthday wishes than "Nice" clicks. What, nobody liked my Chespin wonder trade spam? They always were picked up on the GTS! :D

All in all, I really enjoyed my day today, in spite of the pain in my leg and knee. I also got to catch up to Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii, a spring anime currently airing, which is a rather amusing series. But more importantly, I'm not going to let this keep me down. As you can see my blogging has dropped this year due to my health, but hopefully this birthday post will give me the energy I need to continue, it could have been yesterday, it could have been last month, but for me to enjoy my birthday this much, I'm really thankful and happy I'm still alive.

mangatron's bad luck: my Titanfall Beta experience

Ever wondered why I wasn't too happy about the month of February? This was the one time I wanted to forget my leg and enjoy myself, but my beta experience in Titanfall was anything but fun. (I blotted out my username because I wasn't thinking straight when I created my Origin account last year during those humble bundle sales, and it's not mangatron or einsteinecker, names I should have used >__> well I didn't have that much faith in Origin...) So my Titanfall experience was a little rough signing up for the beta, as I actually forgot my email used on Origin  (I really didn't have much faith in Origin). A couple of days later, I get the wonderful email:
WHAT. I don't have an Xbox One, and I clearly remember selecting "PC" as my platform of choice. Nice start to my Titanfall experience, eh? Yeah I didn't blot the code, doubt it still works anyways...
