Happy Halloween, You Fools! (October 31, 2014)

Well, I got more into Team Fortress 2 again, with my new Halloween cosmetics and still love Merasmus’ voice. I also love the new hammer that was released two days ago; “The Necro Smasher.” I started using it on pubs, although it seems that only the engineer can repair and upgrade with the hammer, while everyone else can’t. This time, the spy was left out of the loop. Team Fortress 2 is fairly stressful, but the characters are one of the best I’ve experienced.

Anyways, I’m glad it’s Friday because I’ve been longing for the weekend once again. Our pet tarantula has molted for her first time, according to my roommate and that was pretty awesome, because that means she’s much closer to her full size, which she’ll spend the next decade and a half with; growing until she reaches a certain age and living a long life for an arthropod. This is the first time that I’ve had an exotic pet; an animal that wasn’t a cat or a dog. Tarantulas are still rather adorable to me, so that matters.

I’m not really doing anything special for this Halloween unfortunately, but maybe next year. Other than that, I have nothing much else on my mind today. I might elaborate on some of my ideas for custom consoles and PCs tomorrow or the next time I post a blog. I’ll catch you all later.

First Blog; Testing Blog (October 29, 2014)

This is my first real blog and it’s been a while since I’ve been on my desktop.

 

So far, not much has happened except classes as usual, which I’m doing fairly well in. I have some new games in my arsenal, but I am waiting to get my hands on Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, which are being released on the same date. I have a feeling it’s going to get wild in there. My brother and I have decided to get either a PS4 or an Xbox One for Christmas, since they are starting to get more exclusives that aren’t HD remakes or are available on the PC.

I might consider getting back into planning for console mods, game mods and all that for the SNES, since they have a great library of games. I’ve been planning on maybe building a few reproduction cartridges after I give the games a test on SNES9x because the experience on the original hardware can still feel amazing in ways that an emulator doesn’t at times. The emulators are better for debugging and testing certain added files or modified files that may or may not run, which is decent enough for most people. It really depends on the person and their “tastes” in their preferred platform. Speaking of which, I’ve recently experienced issues with SD and SDHC cards on my Wii lately. The issue has more to do with the contents being read on the Wii, like trying to launch Homebrew, the CTGP-Revolution Channel or Riivolution. They seem to read just fine on my laptop and desktop, so I am at a loss at the moment. If anyone can diagnose this kind of issue just a slight bit, I would definitely appreciate it.

 

I guess that’s it for the blog. I just wanted to test whether it worked or not while adding some thoughts and opinions that I currently have. As a reward for reading this, here’s a picture.


Until next time I write a blog, I’ll see you all around, I guess.
