Pokemon Dream World delayed due to Crisis in Japan

1 Apr

Logo PDW

Pokemon Dream World was scheduled for lauch on March 30, 2011 but due to the current Tsunami/Nuclear Disaster in Japan (which appears to be the main hosting server for the site), it will not be launched until further notice.

The official US dream world site (http://en.pokemon-gl.com/)  had this to say: “The Pokemon Global Link was scheduled to lauch on March 30, 2011. As a result of the earthquake in Japan and the need to conserve energy resources the lauch date has been temporarily delayed. When a new launch date is determined, it will be published here on the Pokemon Global Link. We apologize sincerly for any inconvenience caused by this delay.”

Hopefully the crisis in Japan will be resolved soon. Our hearts go out to them.

The Unova Region awaits our arrival this Sunday

Only 4 more days until our new journey begins..

Pokemon Black and White English Versions will be Released Sunday, March 6th 2011

Starcraft 2 Builds: Banshee Rush

11 Feb

My absolute favorite build – If HuK’s most well known Protoss build is the Mothership Rush, mine has to be the Banshee Rush when I play Terran.

The match has just barley started, you just started gaining enough tier 1 units to send out and begin battle with your opponent, you mobilize your units and to your surprise when their halfway across the map you hear “BASE IS UNDER ATTACK!”… your sitting there wondering – wtf? You zoom your map back to find that half of your mineral gathering workers have vanished and hovering above them 2 little banshees are wreaking havoc. You rush back to base to take them out and they vanish in midair! WTF?! Their cloaked?! The match just started about 5 minuites ago and your out of minerals and workers to mine them. Theirs nothing else you can do and your tier 1s are now getting picked off one by one as more bashees decide to join in on the fight. You’ve just been Banshee Rushed… GG?

Starcraft 2 Builds: Mothership Rush

8 Feb

So my first build post discussion has to be the most epic of Protoss builds known to the Starcraft universe – The Mothership Rush!

Click here for Mothership Rush build order

The goal is basically the complete and utter surprise of the opponent during a huge, detection-necessary, micro-heavy rush. This is one of those All-in builds which leave you completly defenseless at the beginning. If it fails, you lose. If it succeeds you’ll more than likely win epically with the loudest nerdgasms from spectators and replay lovers.

2 Feb

Track list

02 The Man You Were
03 Sunshine
04 夢の世界
05 魔法の言葉
06 Runaway
07 Disco Girl
08 Wonderland
09 Everything is going to be alright
10 the party’s over
11 One Day
12 Safari
13 If I knew
14 HALO

Angel is a really nice introduction to the album, pretty upbeat and even includes a little bit of Blaise’s “rapping” haha

The Man You Were pretty much summarizes itself in the first few seconds of the song, it’s a Maynard type song haha. It’s a reflective song I think, but definitely pretty catchy and it isn’t too repetitive.

Sunshine is a song that had been previously released on an earlier single and had been another opening to an anime called ぬらりひょんの孫. Probably one of the catchiest songs on the album and has a very different sound than most of the rest of the album.

夢の世界 is a “ballad” type song, I really like the intro to it as it begins with violin and piano. It’s definitely a nice slow, easy listening song that you don’t generally hear too much of from Monkey Majik.

魔法の言葉 is the pv song that was promoted before the album came out. I think it’s definitely the most catchy song on the album and has a nice balance of most of the favorite monkey majik elements and a most welcome speeding up after 夢の世界.

Runaway is a pretty typical more easy listening song that reminds me of a lot of songs on the album Thank You. Not a whole lot to say about it but it’s a decent song to just chill to.

Disco Girl is probably the most different out of all the songs because it feels more like a typical “rock” song. Regardless it’s a good song that lends a different feel than most of the album.

Wonderland is one of my favorites from this album, a fun fact that is the like first few notes of this song sound a lot like 空はまるで. It’s definitely an easy listening song that is just really good to relax to and seems to based partially off Alice and Wonderland but mostly seems to be a “love song” haha.

Everything is going to be alright and the party’s over just sort of have the same feel to them. Both are easy listening, not really a whole lot to say about them other than that..

One Day has this fun little techno intro to it, that sort of seems to hide in the background of the majority of the song. It’s pretty catchy despite it having a little bit of feel of easy listening of the past few songs.

Safari is… I don’t really know, I don’t like it too much… it just seems like a really strange song. Most of the song is in Japanese so perhaps I’m missing some really good lyrics but musically wise it’s kind of boring, I think.

If I Knew gives form to the reflective feeling that you get from the album’s title reference to eastview, in my opinion. Fairly catchy but continues the easy listening song streak haha.

HALO is another ballad song, which I suppose is fairly fitting for the last track of the album. It also would to seem to reference the beginning track with a similar reflective feeling as the last song. Not a whole lot to say about but as far as ballad type songs it’s not too bad.

Well there’s a short synopsis of the album haha. Overall, the first 5 songs are really pretty good and then Wonderland and One Day are my favorites from the last half of the album. As far as general album quality I’d give it about a 7.5/10, definitely worth a listen but I would not say it’s the best. Some of the songs on it are reaaalllly good, so yeah definitely worth a listen! =)

That Bastard!

BLAH! and I was doing so well!

Found my Old SkiFree file and boy was I in the zone but alas it all came to an end when I didn’t turn fast enough and sadly got eaten, then watched him cheer for my demise 😡 Amazing how this game is entertaining as it was when it was released 1991. Back to more Skiing! >=D I will out beat him sooner or later!

And for some hilarity here is Resident Evil with SkiFree 🙂
