Feel my Birthday! Super late edition.


Super late to post this because this time around is very much different compared to last year. My leg last year was just swollen, in whatever phase swollen is, so I just sat around doing what I do on my birthday. This year, I concentrated on tending to my leg as it's very close to healing completely (it takes several hours a day to clean, bandage gauze, change said bandage gauze, rinse repeat etc), and for the first time in a long time I can stand on both legs without pain.

Year ending post 2014

Ah, what a year. From January 23rd to this day, I have been injured in my left leg that was the first I've ever experienced. In fact the whole year went in a way I was not expecting at all, especially not the way I had planned for some events (such as my giveaway).

So as a nod to this year, I went and lazed off the whole day, playing games, pigging out on some Pizza Hut delivery, browsing pics, watching korean drama's (ya'll give Highschool Love On a looksey). This post goes to the Vita though, something I acquired this month primarily for the waifu games XD (because soft-resetting for a decent Virizion in Pokemon Alpha Sapphire was such a chore lol).

Look at that. Need for Speed Most Wanted on the Vita was free during the Playstation Experience event, which of course I promptly downloaded it. I've read about how different it was from the PC version, but the above pic is a glitch I only encountered in the Vita version. Look at the mini map at the lower left corner. See that red line across the freeway? That's a roadblock. The glitch on the Vita version of this game happens when you enter cooldown, but get in range of a roadblock, and cooldown starts increasing your heat instead while flashing the minimap, maxing out the heat level at 6, which means you now have to escape from this atrocious heat level. This does not occur in the PC version.

mangatron's Holiday 2014 haul

Well I did say I was willing to do the giveaway because I already spent money on myself, so here I'm going to post about what I got in November-December. Yukiko Amagi is providing the modeling for the photoshoot :D


In case the picture isn't clear enough, yes, I got myself a PS Vita, though it hadn't arrived yet at the time of this picture. To lazy to do another group photo :P In the picture you can see what looks like a book underneath the Vita games, I actually got the "Let's Get Physical" edition of Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus, which came with an artbook/character profile detailing all the Senran Kagura SV girls with some producer commentary. And yes, I had to get Dead or Alive 5+, it's one of the main reasons why I got a Vita lol. Oh, and if you hadn't noticed it yet, yes, I got another 3DS, the greenish thing below the gunpla box, though that one was bought purely as a unit to test my repair skills as it was sold as "UNPLAYABLE", and of course, with my great skill, I made it playable.

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:

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...

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...
