So now I've read up to a bit past chapter 200 of Yureka. I've noticed that the story seems to have stryed a bit from the original; where they used to go around playing Lost Saga, now they're out in the real world, trying to save Jahea. I have found the character, Row-the-Mighty, to be alot more interesting than I'd originally thought. I thought he'd just be "the guy in the red shirt", who dies at the start of a dungeon, or who just gets bullied by Roto. But no! Yureka is the one who gets bullied by Roto, and the necromancer from the doubles tournament is the redshirt. Row turns out to be one of the best players; he actually gets into the doubles tournament at the start, and comes close to beating Yureka. He also becomes friends with Roto, and play the FPS with him. He even attempts to hold the city by himself, and throws away his master-level to continue defending. He's probably actually the most heroic character, despite seeming like a loser at the start to the series.
   Also, my story is kinda progressing. I've managed to introduce the main characters. At the moment, actually, I'm trying to make an outline of a comic, for a spin-off that has nothing to do with the main story.
   Anyway, I hope to upload another drawing this weekend. In addition, I wasnt to do a review of Rusty Hearts.

Reading many comics

   So recently I have gotten back into reading manga, after having finished my last book (I don't remember what that was). So I've read through the entire series of Rosario Vampire. Part 1 that is. It's about a boy who is enrolled in a high school for monsters, him being the only human there, as humans are forbidden to enter,and he would be killed if anyone found out. As soon as Tsukune (the boy) arrives, he is run over by a girl named Moka, who he falls in love with, and she reveals she is a vampire and bites him. It's actually a comedy series, where all the girls at school want to be with Tsukune for one reason or another, and they join him in the newspaper club, which is almost completely made up of girls who like Tsukune.
   Another series I've been reading is Yureka, or id_entity. This one starts off as a funny series, but later on it becomes alot darker. In the MMORPG, Lost Saga, Roto, a mage, and his friends Ah-Dol and Boromid are part of one of the most powerful groups in the game, which they call team Triple Threat. The first volume just introduces all of the characters, and in volume two, the story really starts. Roto (I can't remember his real name) finds a player's card, with Yureka written on it. When he gets home, he accidentally puts in the card, and finds himself playing as a girl. He spies on his friends, pretending to be Yureka. However, the next time he logs on, as Roto, he finds Yureka also there, despite the fact he still has her player card in his bedroom. After that, she becomes a permanent member of their team, though they never change their name officially.
   In other, non-manga news, I've bought myself a Dark Eldar raider, which I hope will let me get the wyches into combat without being gunned down by a punisher cannon. I also hope to upload anothe picture soon, maybe this weekend

The Birthday

Yea. So apart from the drawings, of which I have a few more to post, I've got the Deluxe edition of Evanescence. My first self-bought album :D.
   It's very different from Fallen. My favorite songs are "What You Want", "The Other Side", "End of the Dream", "Disappear" and "Lost in Paradise". Can't find YouTube videos to link to, so you'll have to find them on the official site.

I just uploaded a picture I call "Betrayed" to deviantArt. Personally, I like the black and white version better; it stays more noir-ish. It's my first picture with GIMP and/or a tablet.

Some more here

I've uploaded more pictures to deviantArt. I'll try to find a way to post a constant link to my profile. I'm planning to try out a feature to increase the contrast, so you can see the pencil drawings more clearly.
   And, in my absence from facebook, I've found that two more Evanescence songs have turned up, End of the Dream and My Heart is Broken.

Drawings uploaded

You can see the pencil better from below
I finally uploaded some of my pictures to my deviantArt profile. It took me ages to get the scanner working. I find if you look at pencil drawings from below the screen (or tilt your laptop back) you can see the pictures more clearly.

And, as some of my school colleagues sang this song, and it was hilarious, I have to share it here. In the performance that I saw, "Kayley" wore a bucket on his head.

Bit of music update

Alright! Bit of an Evanescence update here. I've listened to the Open Door now, so I'll be putting up links to my favorites, including Cloud Nine and Sweet Sacrifice, not to mention Call Me When You're Sober. In addition, I've got a link to The Other Side, a song from Evanescence. And, while I was browsing, I also found Made of Stone. The next album, for those who don't already know, will be titled "Evanescence".

Asperia's story

I've got some of my story written, in the form of a prequel to the story, about a girl called Asperia who is accused of killing several people, and later put onto the same station as the main character. Link is HERE.
Just scroll down a bit, and you'll find my gallery. The series is titled "Asperia part X"

Refreshed, going again

First, you MUST check out the new version of "Where Dragons Rule" by Dragonforce. It's so great, loads more atmospheric, you can hear the background music. It's like the one from Twilight Dementia, only studio. The keyboard is much clearer, they have used a better outro that just fading out, and changed some of the riff a bit.
Secondly, my story's first chapter is loads better than it was. I think everyone should rewrite part of their story, just so they can see what it's like once you've written part of it and know all the characters.

Godsdamnit! This stupid cleanup program deleted everything! I've lost my original save files for Titan Quest, which I managed to reconstruct with TQ Defiler. But what really annoys me? It deleted all my storywriting! WHY!!!

New things, darned dark

Okay, last Friday at games night we had a game based around one team having a Baneblade and the other a Stompa. Two 1/1296 chance things happened. The stompa shot the baneblade, getting 3 chain reactions (6s) and then rolling a 6 for the explosion type. It then exploded and wiped out our entire army. The the next turn the stompa repaired the two points of damage my Vindicare had done to it. The turn after, the Vindicare penetrated it, getting 4 chain reactions on the stompa and destroying it. It didn't wipe out their army though.
   Next game I was allowed to try out 1000 points of Dark Eldar. I had 2 5-man Kabalite squads, a raider, a venom, 2 razorwing jetfighters, a talos, and 5 scourges. It was a 4 way battle, between me, Gray knights (Using a large squad of Paladins), Necrons (with the nightbringer) and tyranids. I got the first turn and went straight for the 'nids. I fired all 8 necrotoxin missiles, killing the entire gaunt brood and all but two Ymargil genestealers. The hive tyrant charged my scourges, killing one, and the leader with power weapon took a wound off the hive tyrant. My talos charged in, taking no damage from the tyrant and pulverizing it in return. My warriors fought a 5 man GK strike squad, and killed them after losing one of my squads to running off.  The razorwings were saved numerous times by the flickerfield, night shields doing nothing. One of the Tyranid warriors was gunned down, while the other and the prime was attacked by the talos, who insta-killed the warrior, and took two wounds off the prime, who was then killed by the ichor injector. The prime used rending to take a second wound off the talos. On the last turn I managed to take 3 wounds off the nightbringer by firing every poisoned weapon and dark lance I had at it. Some rippers appeared behind the last two kabalite.
   I was extremely happy with the 80 points from the nectotoxin missiles wiping out almost two squads on turn 1. The talos was amazing, especially with the upgrades. I completely forgot to mount the warriors on their transports, though.
   I think I shall start a Dark Eldar army.I've always wanted scourges, because of their models, especially the wings. And a turn 1 annihilation is always good.

   In other news, Evanesence has released their single, What You Want, onto iTunes, and I have added a link to the website and lyrics on youtube on my Music page.

by L.A. Weatherly.
   I picked up this book based on the cover art; it seems interesting to read about dangerous angels. Plus at that point I had a thing for angels. Anyway, this book is about Sam, an Angel Killer, and Willow, a girl who can tell fortunes. Sam is sent to kill Willow by the angels, who actually run the AK organisation, but he realizes she is not an angel, and rescues her from the angels when they come after her.
   This story is part action, part romance. It shows the way that Sam and Willow become friends, from being annoyed at each other for their own reasons. The story is told from several perspectives, the first-person being Willow, while Sam and the Angels are in third-person. Anyway, I'm going to be looking for the sequels for this book, one of which should be released sometime this year.
Oh, and by the way,
Here is my new TF2 video

Here you can see the battlefield.

About half an hour ago, I finished a large game at my local Games Workshop, where our team were allowed to take 1250 pts each. I didn't take quite that much; I took:

  • Inquisitor Coteaz
  • Warband - 6 psykers, 2 servitors, 1 with heavy bolter, 1 with multi melta, 4 warriors, all with carapace armor, 1 with plasma gun
  • Warband - 4 warriors, all with carapace, 3 with flamehtrowers
  • Warband - 3 warriors, all with carapace
  • Warband - 3 warriors, all with carapace, 1 mystic
  • Vindicare Assassin
  • Callidus Assassin
Our objective were as follows:
   1 VP for holding both (2) bastions (left in the picture)
   1 VP for killing the designated enemy commander
   1 VP for carrying the intelligence at the end of the game (located in the center crater, near a tall building)
   1 VP for keeping at least on scout* alive and on your team (Rhino is to the right of the picture)
* Five scouts were placed in the Rhino wreckage, 4 with bolters, 1 with heavy bolter. Scouts were captured if a model came within 3 inches and passed a leadership test. The scouts would then join the unit. Scouts could be taken from an enemy unit by standing nearby. Scouts do not count as moving when they are attached, even if the leader unit did (unless the scouts actually moved).
   In addition, the intelligence in the middle was surrounded by spore mines with modified rules.
   On our team, we also had:

  •    5 Grey Knight Paladins, with halberds, 1 with warding stave
  • GK librarian, with Level 3 and Quicksilver and Might of Titan
  • 2 land raiders
  • 1 land raider crusader
  • I dreadnought with lascannon
  • Tactical squad with missile and plasma gun
  • SM commander
  • Honor guard
  • Assault terminators, some with hammers, some with claws
  • Razorback with lascannon
  • Terminators with missile launcher
From what I can remember, the enemy had:

  • Guardsmen veterans with lascannon
  • Leman Russ Eradicator
  • Eldrad
  • Dire Avengers
  • Wraithguard (lots, like >8)
  • 3 squads of fire warriors
  • Commander Farsight
  • 3 XV8 bodyguard
  • Hive Tyrant
  • 3 ripper swarms
  • Eldar Falcon/Wave serpent with bright lance(?)
  • Tyranid warriors, 1 venom cannon, 1 devourer
  • Genestealers
  • Gaunts, some with fleshborers, some with spinefists
  • Vespid Stingwings
Onto the report, (or what I remember)
   The enemy got turn 1, even with Coteaz's initiative reroll. They blew up the land raider on the left, and destroyed an assault cannon on the other. The Eradicaor shot my psyker mob, killing a few of the warriors.
The Tyranids moved forwards quickly, while the neutral scouts randomly moved towards the enemy lines.
   On our turn, I blew the eradicator to pices using the Vindicare's turbo penetrator shot. The Hive Tyrant was gunned down as well, awarding us a VP. My flamer mob, with only one surviving member, moved forwards and torched the crater with the spore mines and intelligence, killing all but one. My psykers blew themselves up, due to having to roll 3 dice from some Eldar rule.
   Turn 1, Imperials, 1, aliens, 1 (from holding the two bastions).
   In the neutral phase, the last spore mine blew up my flamer guardsman, and the scouts continued to move towards the enemy.
   The enemy Tyranids continued to swarm forwards, when we realized the rippers only had a land raider to chew on. The Dire Avengers piled into the crater, where the exarch picked up the intel, and they blasted my mystic squad, killing all but 1 warrior. The wraithguard took control of the scouts.
   On our turn, my Vindicare failed to destroy one of the bastions, and my last guardsman failed to kill an Avenger. However, the Assault terminators slammed into the Wraithguard, along with my three-man warrior squad. The warriors did nothing, but took advantage of the consolidation when the terminators wiped out the wraithguard. The Assault Terminators then took control of the last two scouts.
 Score: Imperials, 2, aliens, 2
   Turn 3, the last turn.
   There were no more spore mines, and the scouts were under our control, so there was no neutral turn.
   The aliens continued to swarm forward, though the Tyranids couldn't assault.The DIre Avengers held down the crater, while the guardians and fire warriors fired at the terminators. Commander Farsight and his bodyguard turned up, firing on our commander and his honor guard, killing all but the Commander and one guard. The Tyranid Warriors finished off my psyker mob, leaving Coteaz on his own. The second last scout was killed, leaving the heavy bolter on his own.
   On our turn, I tried to put as much fire into the Avengers. The Vindicare fired at the Exarch, who was only saved by the reroll to his cover save granted by fortune. I attached the scouts to my last warror from the three man squad, and they jumped into a land raider, guaranteeing us at least a 2 all draw. Not good enough. My Callidus Assassin had turned up, killing 5 fire warriors in a bastion using polymorphine, and the neural shredder killed the second last fire warrior. The last fled the bastion, allowing the Assassin to contest the bastion objective, allowing us a win.
   Final result: Imperials 2, Aliens 1. Imperial Victory!

   I have to say that the Callidus Assassin finally paid off, winning us the game. I actually only took her to fill up points, but she is definitely going to be in future games. I noticed there was a group of Vespids, who had hid behind the Tau bastion the entire game, and did absolutely nothing. This was one of the most exciting games I have played in a while, where we almost lost. We only had one scout left, and our commander was down to one bodyguard, and being hunted down by Farsight. I'm so glad I had a plan B for when the Vindicare failed to kill the Exarch (who would have dropped the papers, costing them a point).
   So people should really stop saying the Callidus is useless!

Small Update

I have moved all the music links from "Stuff..." to a new page, "Music".

The Griffin's Flight

Part two in the Fallen Moon series.
   After leaving Eagleholm, and all his friends, Arren travels north, where he could live with other northerners. He and Skandar meet Skade, a griffin turned into a human as punishment for killing a human after they killed hers, because he was a northerner, like Arren. The two of them quickly become friends, and Skade tells Arren she is looking for a spirit cave that will remove her curse. Later, Arren is captured and made a slave, and has to find a way to escape from the slavery and find Skade and Skandar, as well as freeing the other northerners, so they wouldn't be punished if he escaped on his own. He meets his father, Cadrock, who is also sent to the camp after he is caught after his escape from Eagleholm.
   I found Skade to be an incredibly interesting character, and I liked her instantly. I like the way the author makes you like every single character, even some of the other slaves. You feel like they all have a story and a life of their own, rather than being miscellaneous unnamed characters. You also really want Skade and Skandar to get along, so that Skade can be with Arren.


Interestingly enough, I have recently read two books titled "Angel" and have found a third. The first one, that I will review now, was written by James Patterson, and is the seventh novel in the Maximum Ride series.
   Now, I found that this book really began to pick up the series again, after the 4th to 6th books. This book actually makes alot more sense than Fang or The Final Warning, and is definately alot more interesting.
   After Fang leaves in the sixth book, he recruits a group of followers - including Max's clone. Max finds out (via his blog) and the groups all meet up to fight a a group that want to wipe out humanity to allow mutants to take over. Come to think of it, this seems alot like Magneto in X-Men. Anyway, Max and her new allies all manage to get along long enough to fight back, although they have troubles as the enemy can hypnotise others to join their cause, before getting the humans together to kill themselves.
   I found that this book definately made the series interesting again, and sets itself up for the last book in the series. The fourth, fifth and sixth books were not really continuous; they had one entire adventure which finished in the same book, unlike the first three that had the School as the enemies throughout all of them, giving you a reason to read the other two after the first. I think it may have been that the series was alot more interesting when people were acutally trying to kill them.

First Class

   A few days ago, I watched X-Men First Class
It seems to be a prequel to X-Men, about Professor X and Magneto (Erik). Anyway, I wanted to watch something over the holidays, and this was likely the best option. I thought that the characters were interesting, and I didn't realize that Beast was named Hank until near the end. I completely forgot. Erik and Raven were the most interesting characters in the movie, while Angel had my favorite powers. I also noticed that the whirlwind guy never speaks (or maybe I missed it?). I don't know alot about the X-Men; I only watched a few episodes.
BTW, I updated my Stuff To Look Out For page

Few updates...

... and I haven't slept for the last 24 hours.
  So, I'll write whatever I think of.
   Two more songs:
   Call me when you're sober - Evanescence
   Chop Suey - System of a Down

   Second, I've had some time to try out some of the new TF2 items.
   The Diciplinary Action is loads of fun, but not actually very useful.
   The "Thousand and one Demoknights" set is great; you have the ability to ram someone AND crit him with your sword in the same charge.
   The Quick Fix is alot more appealing than it was in the Beta; now it has an immunity to slowdown on it's ubercharge, so you can combine it with a "real" uber to be invulnrable and non-knockbackable. I see little use in the new melee weapon for the medic, the amputator or the Ubersaw are way more useful, especially if you don't voice chat.
   I've played a few games on Nightfall, one of the newer Plr maps. I haven't played many plr games before, but I've found that the Pain Train can actually be useful; you'll survive longer than a scout and push just as fast.
   Degroot Keep has had a few plays. I like playing as a demoknight, on either side, and you can launch yourself up a rock in front of blu spawn to land on red battlements. And bowmen can set their arrows on fire using the braziers located around the castle and the aforementioned rock.

   Third, I played AvP while it was on sale on steam, for $10! The single player game was too short, and is not really worth replaying. And there are no multiplayer servers to play on.
   Fourth, I've almost got a start to my story. It's set on a moon base (not Earth's moon), and is about a person who is a relatively powerful mage. Relatively. She can sense other people's emotions, whether she wants to or not. So she goes for training on this station, to try to block out thoughts when she doesn't want to hear them.

The Fallen Moon - The Dark Griffin

The Dark Griffin, the first in The Fallen Moon series, by K J Taylor, is about a man named Arren Cadrockson, who starts his story as Master of Trade at Eagleholm, along with his companion, the griffin Eluna. Grifiners are always treated with respect, even a northener like Arren. At least to his face. When a raid causes the death of one of the criminals, Arren and Eluna are forced to capture or kill a black griffin that has been troubling a nearby town to repay the dead man's family. When he goes to fight the griffin, he sucessfully captures it, but Eluna is killed while defending him. He takes the griffin to the arena at Eagleholm, where, due to his griffin having been killed, and being a northerner, he loses all of his satus, and his job as Master of Trade. Lord Rannagon declines having any knowledge of sending Arren to capture the griffin, and calls Arren mad, which almost everyone believes, because he is a northerner, and he let his griffin get killed. His friends, Flell, Bran and Gern, try to look after him, but when he tells them, Gern is killed in an "accident". Meanwhile, "Darkheart", the griffin captured by Arren, quickly becomes a favourite at the arena. Arren sets out trying to get revenge on Rannagon, who is also his girlfriend Flell's father.
   This book is very good at making you care for Arren, and hate Rannagon for causing Arren to lose his life ;! You also end up wondering if Arren really is crazy, at times, and I spent alot of time wondering if Flell would still love Arren if he tried to kill her father. Even Darkheart is and interesting character. You are also constantly reminded that this is also a very realistic story, that there really isn't anything Arren can do to prove he is right, and that Rannagon is competely serious about his threats. Gern isn't a "Jenkins" who dies before you even know anything about him, he is Arren's friend for almost half the book, and then you feel that the author will kill anyone in this story, when he dies.
   An extremely gripping book, and the series is definately worth reading.

   I picked this book up after a reccomendation from a friend. In addition, the rest of my family, with the obvious exception of my brother, has read it already.
   The first thing that you notice when you read this book is the WW1 style map inside the front cover. In fact, throughout the whole book, there are excellent drawings that really help you to visualise the story. One of the first ones, of the stormwalker, was one of my favourite pictures.
   The story is set around two people, Derin Sharp, who pretends to be a boy so she can join the air force, and Alexander Ferdinand, the son of Franz Ferdinand. Derin comes aboard the Leviathan, a giant flying whale, when her tryout for joining the airforce goes wrong. Alex is woken up in the middle of the night by Count Volger and Master Klopp, and when he realises that they aren't going for a practice run, he accuses them of kidnapping him and lying to him. However, he soon discovers that assassins are actually after him to prevent him from taking the throne after Franz Ferdinand is killed.
   One of the main interesting points of this book is that the Entente have "Darwinist" creations, such as the Leviathan, or the fletchete bats, as part of their civilisation, while the Central Powers, or "Clankers", use steampunk machines, like the stormwalker.

This year...

There are loads of great games comming out this year. So, I've mad a list of those I'm interested in:
   Space Marine
   Modern Warfare 3
   Guild Wars 2
   Heroes 6

   In addition, the new Dragonforce album is comming out later this year.
   I'm also going to try and get the Bloodcrushers for my 40k Daemons army, and give one an icon, and another will be used for a mount for Skulltaker. And then I'm going to get more horrors and use the spare as a herald of tzeentch. And I'm thinking of using my other HQ as fateweaver or a great unclean one.
   That's all for now.

Few new things...

...and I should think of better titles.
   Firest up, a few reviews. The Reformed Vampire Support Group by Catherine Jinks, is about Nina, a modern day vampire, who is part of a support group for vampires. However, the group isn't just there to stop them biting people; the vampires themselves are always sick and can't heal themselves like normal people.
   The story starts when they discover that someone has decided to go and kill vampires, from believing all the horror stories about them, wheras these vampires are almost useless.
   I thought this was a great twist on what "normal" vampires are like. I would reccommend this to people who like comedy, and vampires, and don't have a huge interest in teen romance novels.

Pink, Blue and Ugly

So, yesterday, I bought a box of pink horrors and the changeling for WH40k. I got them mainly so that I could do something on the turn I deep strike, and to stop some shooting using the Changeling. I would like to see a 50-man platoon squad of guardsmen shoot their own team. Also, it seems that even a baneblade can be affected, since Glamor of Tzeench is not a psychic power, but an ability. So now I'll be saving up for Fateweaver. I'm starting to like Tzeench because of their sneaky abilities.
   In other news, I've found an artist I like, named Anne Stokes. Her website is here. Have a look, see if you like it.
   Also, I've started listening to My Chemical Romance. My favorite songs are:

Friday, April 8, 2011


Well, I first saw this book as a MASSIVE book, 900 pages long. Then I found one of the individual books at a different library, and I thought "That sounds interesting" so I borrowed the omnibus.
   I read the first few books and thought that they were good, but when I got to Wyrvenhail, I noticed it had a significant difference. It took me ages, until I realised that this was the only one where the main character isn't in love. I mean, in the first two, Hawksong and Snakecharm, Danica and Zane are in love, and in Falcondance Nicas wants to help Hai and Oliza. I'm not going to spoil Wolfcry by telling you who falls in love, but it was my favourite book in the series. Wyrvenhail seemed interesting at first because Hai is an interesting character, but the whole story seemed sad, until the end, like the Harry Potter books. I think this series is a must read for fantasy readers, and I wanted to read The Den of Shadows series, but I can't find it. I'm also reading Persistence of Memory and Token of Darkness.

The Spook

I'm now going to review the next FOUR books in the series: The spook's Battle, Mistake, Sacrifice, and Nightmare. This is the part in the series where everything starts going downhill for the characters, Tom, the Spook, and Alice. In the spook's battle, they go to Pendle, a witch country, to try and stop the witch clans from uniting. Mab, who rules the Mouldheel clan, begins to like Tom, though she soon finds out that Alice has marked him as her own first. In the Spook's Mistake, Tom is sent to Bill Arkwight, one of the spook's previous apprentices, to learn how to fight water creatures, to swim, and to fight in general. He gets into trouble when he angers Morwena, a water witch who can transfix those who look into her red eye, and who is also one of the Fiend's daughters. In the Spook's Sacrifice, the three of them, along with Bill Arkwight, and a large group of witches who follow Tom's Mam, travel to Greece to fight the Ordeen, Tom's Mam's ancient enemy. In the Spook's Nightmare, Tom, The Spook and Alice travel away from Chipenden, to an island away from the war, but they are quickly accused of witchcraft by the shaman, and, to make matters worse, Bony Lizzie has escaped from the spook's now abandoned house, and is trying to rule the island.
   I've also read Witches, which is a book set in the same world as the Wardstone chronicles, but is about witches, told not only by Tom or the spook, but also from the point of view of  witches, such as Grimalkin or Alice.

Ok, I got this game a few weeks ago, and I played through the game online co-op, and then I played alot of versus. I haven't tried scavenge mode or survival. I usually play versus, and I've found that it is alot harder to play as infected than as survivors. It requires alot more teamwork. Survivors just have to stay near each other, and shoot anything that moves. Infected don't take as long to kill as survivors, since guns do way more damage than claws. I think that the Witch should be able to do more damage, because it's annoying when someone just runs up with a spas 12 and blasts at it like crazy, and kills it. Also, sometimes you can trigger the witch as infected, sometimes you can't. I was a boomer and went off right next to a witch, and she didn't notice. Maybe she should be able to detect better, so that crowning becomes risky. Which reminds me, once I found a witch, and fired a grenade with fire upgrade. I think she disappeared, and then I was downed. Another time, in the Passing, I blew up the bride witch using two explosive cans.

I haven't posted for a while, and now I'm going to do a review of a movie, called Vexille, and tell you what I'm going to post later.
   Vexille is set in the future, where Japan has isolated itself from the rest of the world, and no-one has any idea what they are doing. The film focuses on Vexille, who is part of an elite fighting unit. They are sent to infiltrate Japan, but they are caught and almost all of the squad is killed. I'll stop talking about the story, or I'll spoil it. I think the armor that the team wears is pretty cool, and it looks a bit like the armor from the game Section 8.

   What's coming later:
  • Left 4 Dead 2
  • The Spook's Battle
  • Gifted
  • Skulduggery Pleasant
  • Grey Knights 
I'm also going to update my list of things to look out for.

Catching up on stuff

List of things I need to write about:
  1. Music review
  2. Book review
  3. Funny stuff
  4. Game review
Ok, first off, I  recently listened to the album Fallen by Evanesence. I like alot of the songs, like Going Under, Bring Me to Life, and My Immortal. Amy Lee is very good at singing. I liked it so much, I'm trying to play  My Immortal on keyboard.
Well, I just read Terrier and Bloodhound by Tamora Pierce. They are about a girl named Beka Cooper, who trains to be a "Dog", one of the city guards. She has a few special abilities; she can talk to spirits that ride on pigeons, she can hear words that have been picked up by dust spinners, and she has a talking purple-eyed cat named Pounce. She is trained by Turnstall and Goodwin, who are some of the best dogs. She also makes friends with some newcomers to the Court of the Rogue. The Rogue controls crime in the city (like the Thieves' guild in Discworld). In the first book, she finds that a person called "The Shadow Snake" is stealing away children, and killing others.

   Funny Stuff.
Let's see...
And now for the game review.
   I played the demo of Winter Voices. This game has generally gotten bad reviews, but I liked it. It seems to have a good story, something I call and "Interactive Movie", which is meant to be a story, but you can play it as well. It would be nice if the demo lasted for more than a few minutes, but maybe it is a short game. It was a nice game, with good artwork.

What do you think?

I have (more or less) finished my daemon prince, and I have also built a doomsday device for the upcoming Apocalypse game. Datasheets are here. I hope it works when I use it. On a 12 on the effects table, it has a 6d6 radius explosion range, instantly "destroying all matter". I guess this includes terrain and super heavies. They are still allowed to take invulnerable saves against it, though. My doomsday device is a black bunker, made out of cardboard, and the story is that there are expendable cultists inside pressing buttons to make it go off. I was going to make a giant missile, but it doesn't just explode, it has other effects, like launching apocalyptic barrages, firing d6 beams of destruction, or d3+2 apocalyptic blasts. Or it might just not work. I will post pictures of both of them later. I am not the best painter.
   Also, a while back I mentioned that I was writing a book. Well, I decided to write a prequel instead, on how all the characters meet each other. Also to put down ideas that I had for another character that isn't in the first book I was writing. I am learning to draw in pencil; I can draw, but I can't to the full shading that you see in pictures like this one.
I will upload pictures in my next post.
   My youtube video is up, but without sound for some reason. It asked me to pick a new song, so I did, but it said I already had a request for a song change.

Much More

Let's see, I just bought a daemon prince for 40k, and gave him wings and power armor. I'm going to use him as a tankbuster, or killer of tough things. I am thinking of giving him mark of Tzeench, increasing invulnerable saves, and taking bolt of Tzeench and unholy might. I am thinking of getting seekers next, or another Daemon prince, this one a Slaanesh, with pavane. Or maybe I'll get the Masque, despite the obvious weaknesses of low toughness and no unit protection. Not Soul Grinders; they are too expensive and not as durable as many other walkers.
   In Black Ops, I am trying to get good at... something. I have made a montage on youtube. Unfortunately, I just found out after I uploaded it that I wasn't allowed to use the song I'd chosen, and I've never even heard of any of the 'audioswap' songs or artists. It goes well with the music I chose.  .\/.

And it doesn't even play the game audio which is separate from the song.
Strangely, when I watch the video on my channel, it plays the music I chose.

Yay, videos

Double kill, Comeback, Headshot, Hardscope
I made a youtube video. I could show you it, but I want to get hits on youtube. I used fraps and windows movie maker. It is me having a go at quick/hard scoping in black ops. Turns out it is hard scoping.

Gmod and other interesting HL2 stuff

I got Gmod recently. I played around on it, but I can't spawn NPCs in multiplayer mode. I downloaded the HLDJ so I could play music on it. I can't find how to set up a gmod dedicated server though. I did manage to get a group of antlions to stand up though. Their front-back legs keep flipping all over the place when I move the back-front legs, or the head. It takes a while to get HLDJ to work properly, so here's a quick startup guide: when you run it, get it to find your games, then on the main menu, click "audio converter, and in the "output directory", put your folder (I called mine "gmod music"). This is where hldj will look for the music. In setup pick "add all" then choose a play key (I use F4). Go back to the main menu, choose your game from the drop down menu, and press the "play" arrow. When ingame, press the tidle key ( ` ), next to the "1" on your keyboard, and type "la", use the number to pick a song, and then press ` again to exit the console, then press your selected key to play. You can hear your own music while playing, and so can everyone else. :)

Back again

and on new years day. So I'm posting.
   For xmas, my family went to South Australia, for a family party. I ate lots of ham rolls and rocky roads at the party, and had a few cans of coke. I got to try out a bit of the Toy Story game, which was okay, but we only played in Woody's roundup, and didn't get anything done.
   For presents, I received a water pump, two music albums (Foo Fighters' greatest hits, and Fever), a book (Bloodborn), a remote control helicopter, and a jenga game. I've watched most of the videos on the Foo Fighters disc, and I've listened to Fever, which was alright, but I didn't especially like it too much. I haven't gotten the helicopter to hover yet, but we're trying to. At least it doesn't spin around. We played jenga as well. I haven't finished reading Bloodborn yet, but I like it so far, and I've read some of Nathan Long's other books, from the Blackhearts trilogy.
   Book review: This book is about a young vampire called Ulrika, who travels with Gabriella, her mistress, and she teaches Ulrika about living as a vampire. They are sent by the vampire queen to Nuln to find out what is killing and exposing the other vampires in Nuln. I has been very suspenseful so far, and I've tried to write a review before I finish because of this.
   I feel I'm forgetting something.
