Lyrics
I was so afraid of the days long ago
Now I realize that I never did know
Now days have changed; they’re complex and sad
Missing all the days that I once had
I don’t really think that I’d want to return
Today may be hard, but I live and I learn
My heart believes; I don’t think that it’s wrong
Then it shouts that I have been just right all along

Now is the time for our fate to connect
Believing in the same future, we intersect
All of the tears we have cried yesterday
Let’s dry them up and keep smiling on today
We are a team; we share all painfulness
But yet we also share all the same tenderness
As long as you stay right here next to me
I will stay strong for tomorrow; you will see..

Daily NhanSense – Day 8

Day 8’s Topic: Card games.


I love card games. For about a year and a half or so, I have been playing a lot of Magic: The Gathering.

It’s the world’s most popular card game for a reason, as numerous players across the globe play Magic.

As of last week, Magic’s Standard format has since rotated to make room for the new Khans of Tarkir set. Basically, each Standard block restricts the type of cards you can use for an extended period of time.

You may only use certain sets of cards allowed for this time period for the decks you build to compete in tournaments. It may sound strange, but it’s a means of letting cards get their time to shine while hopefully mixing up the format for each Standard rotation.

Of course, this newest Standard rotation meant I had to retire the deck I was using for so long, which was my Green White Hexproof deck.

I am a bit saddened at this fact because I really did enjoy this deck. It won me A LOT of cards as prizes, placing well or winning first at my local tournaments on many nights.

But alas, every good thing has to come to an end at some point. At the very least, I can still play a Modern version of this, so not all is lost.

Below is the deck build I used. Continue reading

“Get good. Be better.” – Nhan Fiction

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

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.

MOBA Monday: An Expanding Genre

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.

“Oh, what game do you play?” Continue reading
