Believe in You

Standard

Do As Infinity - “Believe in You”

English Translation of Lyrics
I’m not even afraid of the sorrow
Or pain that I must get over
There is a life I’m joined with
Believe in you – I’ll go toward tomorrow

We’ll cross the waves of time
And finally arrive there, I’m sure

I won’t lose
On that day when I was helplessly lost
Your words pushed my back

“Get good. Be better.” – Nhan Fiction


Card Me: Ethereal Armor

Standard


————————————————————————————————————–
Card Me: A favorite hobby of mine is playing card games. There is just something really remarkable about how laying cardboard onto a table can bring people together for lots of fun/frustration. As a naturally shy person in real life, I enjoy how card games can bring me out of my shell for quite the social activity.

Behold one of the strongest commons in Magic: The Gathering.

Ethereal Armor just rocks on so many levels. It honestly should not have been a common. When used in an appropriate deck (cough* Hexproof), Ethereal Armor pays for itself and then some.

MOBA Monday: An Expanding Genre

MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) is my favorite kind of gaming genre in the world.

Once upon a time, the term MOBA did not exist in the gaming world. The first MOBA to develop a cult following of sorts was Defense of the Ancients (DotA).

Technically speaking, DotA was nothing more than a custom map you could play on the Warcraft III game. One could even go as far as to say it was a “mini-game,” but an amazingly complex one that impacted gaming history forever. Yes, we are talking about a custom map here, after all.

DotA grew in popularity to the point where many purchases of the Warcraft III Battle Chest occurred just so people could play it. There was nothing like it anywhere else in the gaming market back in the day. It was one-of-a-kind. To say DotA, let alone the entire MOBA genre up to this point, was niche would be an understatement.

In Magic: The Gathering, my absolute favorite Planeswalker is Kiora, the Crashing Wave. The moment I came across this card spoiled all the way back when the Born of the Gods set was revealed, I just knew deep down I wanted a Kiora card badly.

It took earning second place at a win-a-box tournament at a local card store, splitting the booster box prize in half and then, with sheer luck, I fortunately came across a copy of this card in one of my pulls. Just plain awesome.

Kiora, by the way, is an excellent card in her own right as well. All three of her abilities are respectively powerful and useful in various in-game situations. Let’s just say I have won multiple games when I can unleash the kraken(s) with her extremely overwhelming ultimate ability.

Song 4 U

Standard

I am enjoying Tales of Xillia 2 as a side game I have been playing. Very fun and interesting. I love the featured song as well. I think it really describes my life to a T at the moment. 

Ayumi Hamasaki - “Song 4 U”

English Translation of Lyrics
Even now, I still don’t have that much confidence
There are times I can’t step forward

If you think to yourself, if I make a mistake or if I look back
What will happen?

Happy Haiku: Lanaya

Happy Haiku: I try to dabble in writing haiku poems in Japanese.

Like I wrote the other day, I have been playing a lot of Dota 2 as of late and having a blast. It’s been a really good experience, overall anyway, with trying to get back into the game.

As I was transitioning over into Dota 2 from League of Legends, I found myself really taking a quick liking to Lanaya, the Templar Assassin, and her style of play. She plays a lot like a ninja, and who doesn’t like a cool ninja girl?

I would go as far as to call Lanaya my favorite hero in Dota 2 at this point. Heck, I have been plastering Lanaya pictures all over my various blogs and stuff.
