Hard times ahead.

Hello again! I'll just cut right to the chase here. Ace Combat Infinity didn't have a release date on September 25th after all. Rumors abound, some say it got delayed, others that it was the date for the Japanese beta-test.  Massively disappointed, and I'm sorry for just adding fuel to that fire... Anyway, at Tokyo Game Show just a few days ago, they put out a new trailer, this one with some length and story elements in it.

I've been studying some more Japanese recently, after a break on two weeks (mostly due to work). I've gotten around to learning て-form (Te-form), and I've started to work on Katakana. I thought Hiragana was bad when it came to characters looking a lot similar, but Katakana is much worse, haha. Seriously, just look at Ke ケand Ku ク. Damn. Well, it's not like you can learn any language in a day anyway, right? Got to put in some work for that reward.

On the anime front, I actually completed WataMote today, which marked my 150th completed anime according to My Anime List. That's a pretty big milestone, but at the same time I've seen a lot of people with tons more completed anime on their lists. I found WataMote to be really, REALLY funny, but I was slightly disappointed in the ending. Definitely worth a watch if you want something short to just laugh to. Ended up giving it an 8/10 (That's the equivalent of "Very Good" as I use the same scores as My Anime List). It's a series I could re-watch at a later time with someone who hasn't, purely for the laughs.
What?! No perfect 10?!

I'm not even halfway done with Azumanga Daioh, so there's still quite a wait time for that mini-review I'm afraid. Sorry! Anyway, that's it for this post. Stay tuned for more, and stay safe!

More Ace Combat!

Howdy! Yet another post! Ace Combat Infinity is closing in like a fast-mover on afterburners, so the Ace Combat Official Fan Page just chucked out 32 new pictures on their page! Here's my three favorites.

I've also been playing a bit of Ace Combat:Assault Horizon, mostly to brush up my "skills" (if there ever was any) for Infinity, so I got some good footage from that recently.
As a final note, making this a rather small update, I've started playing Arma 3 with the fellas at Hardcore Gaming Community. We're a good mix of new and experienced Arma players, all learning each other the ropes.

For those of you waiting for an anime update, fret not, it's on the Horizon! (Yes, another pun, better get used to them) xD

Full stream ahead!

Yes, that is a pun in the title. I'm horrible like that. Anyway, I've been (and still am) sorting out a few settings and tweaking others in regards to streaming, but from the tests I've done it seems good to go! So far though, I've only tried War Thunder and The Bureau: XCOM Declassified on the stream, but they both seem to run really well. The streams can be found here, although I haven't set much of a schedule. I'll just be streaming when I feel like it. Whatever "Golden Moments" I have, is usually made into highlights then exported over to Youtube, just like this clip from War Thunder with a friend from the Hardcore Gaming Community.

On the anime front I discovered Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! (that's a mouthful and a half, isn't it?), which apparently translates into No matter how I look at it, it's you guys' fault I'm not popular!. Luckily though, some brilliant person out there gave it the shortened name WataMote, which is actually possible to remember. The series is currently airing, I've caught up to it and it's really hilarious. It' about a female shut-in with bags under her eyes from being up all night trying to become popular (and so far, not having much luck).

That's it for now though, I hope you all have a great time and stay healthy until the next post!

MAL is down, let's return to Comona Islands!

Yes, you read that right! Comona Islands is apparently making a grand return in Ace Combat Infinity when that pops out on September 25th! Some screenshots and a new teaser trailer were released, and I was blown away!
                                                              I cannot wait to try this out!

One thing a lot of us Ace Combat fans will notice, is that they remixed the song from the mission over Comona Islands in Ace Combat 4, and from what's heard in the trailer, it sounds great!

As you also read in the header, MyAnimeList (MAL) is down due to a DDOS attack. That's right, someone with too much time on their hands decided to DDOS a website made for people who want to keep their watched anime and manga in a neat list and discuss them with others. I'm just hoping no one loses their entire list...

Other than that, I got my new memory for my PC yesterday, and I started watching Azumanga Daioh. I can't really say anything about it yet, might give it a mini-review once I'm done with it. For now, I believe this picture explains Azumanga Daioh the best.

Back to the topic of the memory, I'll do a bit of testing and such. If it all works out properly I can start capturing gameplay again, in hopes of finding some great footage! Stay tuned for more!
