Woooohooooo!!!! (Part 3)

About fucking time.

10 COMP slots. And all three LNC plugins in the same character.

Fuck yeah.

Atlus, my friends, you really need to exercise better judgment in choosing community voluntaries to represent you.

Everybody knows that since Atlus took over management of Shin Megami Tensei Imagine, they’ve been working their asses off to more or less “live up to the (preconceived) ideals” that had been formed and set up during the tenure of the game with Aeria. As such, one of the things that many people (grudgingly, myself included) were hoping that Atlus would do right was the Game Sage program. In theory, the community concept of these is a number of volunteer players “representing” the managing company (previously Aeria, now Atlus), with the primary mission of being an intermediary between the Game Masters and the playerbase, as well as being available to help out players that need a hand with anything. (Secondary roles include organizing events and so on, but that’s irrelevant to the point of this post.) For reasons I shall not discuss here nor will consent anyone discussing in the comments with the threat of deleting any post that does, Atlus decided they wouldn’t be named Sages, but went for the completely ridiculous “Buddy-Buds”. How the bloody ever-loving fuck you can take that fucking name seriously is way, WAY beyond me, but I digress.

For the most part, I am surprisingly okay with most of the list of people currently chosen as Sages (I refuse on principle calling them what Atlus calls them, mainly on the grounds of how ridiculous it is).

However, as with everything in the universe, where the wise dwell, the idiots creep up.

Horrible, horrible couple of days.

Lots of stuff going on with my life, not all of it pleasant.

On the bad side:

I guess the most painful event was hitting my testicles with an electrical cable that snapped like a whip due to an unexpectedly forceful pull from the person at the other end of the line (and yes, it fucking hurt like fucking bloody fuck… fuck — no amount of expletives can express the pain I suffered or could quench my thirst for unleashing them upon the world when I was doubled down on the floor, reeling from the unexpected attack to my anatomy).

On a slightly unrelated note, the most irking thing that’s happened these past few days was that for whatever reason, after I installed MegaManX8 and Resident Evil 4 again on my laptop, Resident Evil 5 and Street Fighter 4 decided to not work anymore, so had to uninstall them both and right now I’m having Steam download/install both again. Fuck.

On the good side, however, there HAVE been a few beacons of light amongst the shadows here and there:

The first would be the fact that apparently, I unconsciously stepped up my Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition game and was able to stand my ground as Ken against a RIDICULOUSLY good, international-tournament-level Akuma. Knowing that I was able to make life difficult for a dude that goes hand in hand with some of the best players around the world makes me feel incredibly pleased with myself.

And secondly, this…

-Has withdrawn from any social activity on the forums, you will only see me participate in events-

…finally happened on Atlus’ forums from this user.

Yay for having one less idiot spewing shit in the community forums! =D

On Sages/Mentors/Helpfolk and my attitude. (Yes, I refuse on principle to use that completely unprofessional and immature name they’ve picked.)

Over the past few days (and in fact through the entire duration of the so-called “event”), people kept asking me why I didn’t apply for a Sage/Mentor/Helpfolk at Atlus. I know the game practically backwards, I can be professional when I want/need to, and I can take lots of pressure (as well as dish it out in a MAGNIFICENT way as well).

It’s actually surprisingly simple.

Rebirth is complete. Here’s the process log.

So my death and rebirth cycle is already complete, and I’m here to document the process. I know I’m late, I know I should’ve done this about a week ago when I actually was done, but eh, work has been a bitch, and I’m getting more and more demotivated with it as each day goes on. But whatever, let’s get on with this.

Looking at the difference. Rebirth in progress.

Before and after.

The new SMT Imagine chat/shoutbox.

With the move to Atlus, Aeria will eventually close down the Imagine subforum, and the Atlus forums do not have a shoutbox functionality. So I took it upon myself to get one running for the shoutbox regulars for when Aeria’s disappears.

Having tried a bunch that didn’t work, I eventually said “fuck it” and gave up, and mounted a Mibbit-powered IRC chat interface, located here. If you have your own IRC client and want to connect from there, you can use that too.

And now, bedtime.

I may not have the ultimate gear in the server…

But considering the gear I do have, I can safely say that I’m pretty damn proud of these.

New personal project: Imagine XP Calculator redesign.

I’ve been toying with the idea of completely redesigning my old XP calculator for Imagine, and came up with a moderately decent idea…

Oh god. I haven’t laughed so hard at this much sheer immaturity and/or idiocy in a long, long time.

First, read this thread.

Next, read this “blog” post by the same user as the thread.

And now, keep reading for my reply. [Read More…]

Jesus Christ. I’ve been gone for three months and this kind of idiocy is STILL running rampant?

Do you really think yourself such a great troll? When you consider that you always try to get in my conversations, that you absolutely FAIL at internet trolling, and despite the fact that I openly ignore you, you ALWAYS fail at attempting to blend in, plus the fact that you spew so much shit out of that hole in your face you call a mouth that I have no idea how you can still speak with all the shit dribbling on your chin, I frankly don’t understand how ANYONE still takes you seriously.

You know BULLSHIT about this game. All you know you didn’t even learn; you’ve COPIED from others. I don’t even think you properly know how damage works. All you are is the same kind of imbecile that proliferated when spirit infusion made it to Aeria’s servers: A PVP-obsessed Megi-spamming idiot. I’ve actually been wondering why this hasn’t been made an official build on the Aeria forums, and I’m surprised you haven’t been made a GS yet. You would fit so well with other braindead coprophagic Aeria drones like Dojan, Kalaydo and the like.

Eh, three out of four. Not too bad I guess.

Took a bullet in the balls trying to play RE5 on this poor little old machine, but with three good news balancing against the utter rape my poor old laptop suffered, I guess I’ll survive.

A couple of important things just happened these past few days.

And as much as I’d like to name them all in an orderly fashion just in here, you’re gonna have to hit the jump to read about everything. By the way, Aeria decided they really don’t want me back, even in spite of all the stuff I’ve gathered as evidence in my defense and all the stuff I can DO FOR THEM. Oh well, their loss. It’s just a pity that all my pimped out shit won’t get any more use, by me or anyone else.

ROFL, what sort of scamtastic scheme will Aeria think of next?

Because this is a TOTALLY legit and fair lottery, ain’t it?

I think I hurt somebody’s feelings. So long, I guess, and thanks for all the fish~!

Unfortunately for them, I’m the careful, paranoid type that keeps or gets records of everything when the charges are bullshit.

So apparently because I can do your work BETTER than you yourselves do (especially since you don’t do it AT ALL), you’re warning me?

Smooth, Aeria. Real smooth. =p

EDIT: Funny how mere minutes after this link starts to spread itself around by word of mouth, Aeria’s entire site goes kablooey. Probably a coincidence, but still fucking hilarious. XD

Feedback concerning the new SMT Imagine GS applicants.

So Aeria recently reopened applications for their fancy Game Sage position for Imagine, and because I was a little too lazy, NAme got ahead of me and made a post on his blog for REAL feedback, not the filtered, censored shit you can only do at their forums.

I already posted a reply to it with my sincere, concise and brutally honest opinion about all the applicants. You’ll notice that among the people I point out as good choices, while there are some close friends of mine like Kain and Mem, there’s also people I barely know, but have witnessed their knowledge, helpfulness, honesty and desire to help, like Alister, Ziggy and Viraxe.

…Now I’m tempted to make an application for myself to troll Aeria with. :V

For those who care, my plugin guide is back up.

You know, in case someone still needs it these days.
