Rio's Randomness~ Part 3

Yo! So, I've decided to tell you guys, once again, a bit about my life and all that. Especially about the most important part of my life, my girlfriend. Oh well, where should I start...

Well, I knew her quite a long time already before our relationship even started, everything still online. When I asked her out she still had a boyfriend, which I actually didn't really know. Anyways, she broke up most likely, since their relationship wasn't the best you know, and after all that we finally were together. From that day on, I kinda like was happy every day, even if I was pissed the whole day due to some unknown reason, I still was utterly happy for this very reason. Of course, we obviously aren't the best pairing, we fight every day and discuss many things over and over, but still, our love keeps us together, none of us could live without the other one.

So yeah, basically, I'm raging every day about her, because we have the attitude to piss each other off, but we always, really always forgive each other, no matter what's the issue. Personally, I think that is true love. Well, so much for that part of my life, I really couldn't live without her, and hopefully she couldn't without me.

Love you, honey!

Katawa Shoujo!

Katawa Shoujo is a bishoujo-style visual novel set in the fictional Yamaku High School for disabled children, located somewhere in modern Japan. Hisao Nakai, a normal boy living a normal life, has his life turned upside down when a congenital heart defect forces him to move to a new school after a long hospitalization. Despite his difficulties, Hisao is able to find friends—and perhaps love, if he plays his cards right. There are five main paths corresponding to the 5 main female characters, each path following the storyline pertaining to that character.

The story is told through the perspective of the main character, using a first person narrative. This game uses a traditional text and sprite-based visual novel model with an ADV text box.

Katawa Shoujo contains adult content, and is created using the Ren'Py scripting system.Katawa Shoujo is under development by an international team of amateur developers, and will be released free of charge under the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND License. There is currently no release date set. However, Act 1 is offered as a free download on their page, and Act 2 is following soon. This is one epic game, so make sure to pay it a visit!

This times Game: Heroes of Newerth

Heroes of Newerth is a generally new type of game, which is really hard to explain in just one sentence, so I'll make it as quick as I can, but don't expect much out of it.

In Heroes of Newerth, Heroes are primarily organized by their main attribute - either strength, intelligence, or agility. A main attribute, along with the set of abilities that is provided for a hero, loosely assigns the role that they will fill in the game - such as an "initiator" who is geared towards being the first hero into a fight, a "carry" who scales very well the longer the game moves on and deals massive damage and "support" - heroes which have a range of abilities from healing and buffing to damage and disables.

While the three primary attributes help categorize heroes, what truly distinguishes each hero from others is their set of abilities. Each hero in the game has four unique skills or spells that can be learned and improved as the hero gains levels. These abilities accomplish vastly different things, such as dealing damage, healing, stunning, immobilizing or silencing, teleportation, summoning, and life and mana draining. While the skills themselves are unique, the skills of each hero usually have some sort of synergy with each other. For example, a hero might have one skill that reduces an enemy's defenses against magic, and another skill that deals magic damage. Using these skills one after the other increases the hero's effectiveness by allowing them to do more damage. Each hero's skill-set defines their role in the game. These roles can vary according to the compositions of each team as well as the overall strategy that the team decides to follow. Heroes can belong to multiple categories. In addition, item selection is an important factor that determines a hero's role. 

To summarize all of this, it's pretty much just like Defend of the Ancients (DotA) for Warcraft 3, just a newer version with newer characters and better graphics.

New Updates!

Listen up, folks! I, as some of you may have noticed, changed the link pictures on the right side. It's not much to talk about, but it took me quite a while to create and embed them, and they sure fit each other well, don't they? The only thing which will cause problems is when a 5th person asks to be linked as well. I would need to get another picture and redo all of the pictures, that'll be way too much stress for me, so I'm happy I changed them and I certainly will keep them for at least some months!

This times Game: Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth

That's right! It's been a while since my last post, but that's because I rarely find the time to tell you anything because nothing actually happens! Nothing, except for the daily crap, but there's not much to tell. Playing Heroes of Newerth almost all day and maybe doing some other stuff. Oh and of course I'm often phoning with my precious girlfriend.

So much for that, I've already told you guys about Ace Attorney: Apollo Justice, well, here's the newcomer, which is at least as awesome as any game of the Ace Attorney series. Again, it's a prosecutor game, where, who would've known, you get to be a prosecutor. Not just "some" prosecutor, no, you'll be Miles Edgeworth, and of course you will help him fight his way through the game with law and justice! The basic game rules are pretty simple: Investigate, Combine logical thoughts, find contradictions and find the criminal! Here, the launch trailer with japanese voice included.

Happy Birthday Rio!

That is right! Your king celebrates his birthday! I didn't do much, really. Got a few calls from my family, some people congratulated me as well. Well, what should I say, I'm no big party guy. I barely have "friends", and even if I had, gaming still is more fun.

Hm, I was thinking what to do on this post, I actually still don't know it, maybe I'll just show you some video I found a while ago which actually is kinda cool because of how it's made. Have fun!
