    • RTX 2015 Day One & Bracket Studio Panel

      4 years ago

      IcepickXIII

      So Day One finally came and is almost over. I'm still planning on swinging by 6th Street, so if anyone sees me, feel free to start up a chat! I'll mostly likely be meeting up with my friends at Recess soon!

      Also, I just wanted to thank everyone that came out to the Bracket Studio panel today! We had a blast and we hope you did too! And a massive thanks to those that subscribed and have applied for our Synergy Initiative! We see you guys, so we'll be getting back to you when all the madness of RTX is all done.


      Hope to see you guys out there soon and then tomorrow!

      Hey all, I just wanted to share out this release I put out on my Bandcamp. If you're into fast rave music, I'd really appreciate if you would check it out. It's a free download with a "Pay What You Want" option if you like it enough! It comes with two bonus tracks if you download it (even as a free download!) so come check it out!

    • FFXIV: Can't download client!

      in Forums > FFXIV: Can't download client! | Follow this topic

      IcepickXIII

      Hey all! I tried the Final Fantasy XIV forums for this query, but it seems I'm not allowed to post there since I haven't played the game itself in a while. But I've been wanting to play again so I figured I'd just download the game client for PS3 over the PSN but as it turns out the game is unavailable for download. I'm more than willing to go and pay the subscription after I downloaded the game client, but it seems that either Square or PSN isn't allowing any downloads for it at this time.

      So my questions are these:
      1. Is anyone else having this issue and
      2. Does anyone know the reason for this?

      I did a search, but only found answers from 2013 which may be applicable to my predicament (Square disabling downloads to control traffic in-game) but I'm still bummed out.

      Any ideas, tips or answers would be greatly appreciated!

    • Funny How It Works Out

      4 years ago

      IcepickXIII

      I tend to get in the mood to type up a journal when I'm sick. I'm currently listening to Nothing Personal by All Time Low as I type this. It just so happened to be playing on YouTube when I woke up today, but I honestly love that album so it worked out for me.

      But I do have some things to talk about!

      Firstly, I went to Houston earlier this week to see my favorite band of all time: Enter Shikari. It was a great show, and I had loads of fun. I even met up with several friends I haven't seen in YEARS. The only thing I didn't care much for was that my sickness probably came from that trip. :C

      I've also started putting more Let's Play content on my solo youtube channel, so if you've got a few, I'd appreciate a watch and a critique! www.youtube.com/icepickxiii

      I even got a new table microphone arm to help with my awkward desk situation. :D
      I'm aiming for a Mon-Fri type schedule and maybe an extra video on Saturday, but I'm not too sure about that yet. This week was a fun first week, and I managed to keep up with my schedule, which is always a challenge for me on YouTube. I hope it gets a little more traffic soon! I'd love to have some interaction with other fans of the games I'm playing. :)

      My music is taking a nice creative leap forward, though the production is definitely still needing work. I'm actually getting a lot of support from Twitch streamer Battle Athlete since I made a UK Hardcore track for his stream and he plays it every time he streams, which is really sweet! I've also done a little bit of audio/video work for him as well. I'm keeping myself busy!

      That's about all I have to update on for now. I'm going to try and get rid of this stupid head cold now and hopefully I'll be good to go back to work tomorrow.

      Peace!

      Hey fellow gamers and commentators! I recently started updating my YouTube channel with daily videos Mon-Fri to see how it fares, and I wanted to see how I am doing content-wise. If you have some time, I'd really appreciate it if you'd check out my channel, a few of my videos and leave some comments either here or there on the channel. Or direct message me, if you'd feel up to sending something more lengthy.

      Since I'm putting myself out there, I'm able to take constructive criticism, so please definitely let me know how to improve my Let's Play videos (namely the full play videos, those are what I'm trying to focus on right now!)

      If you want a starting point, this video is what I'm most excited about since it kicks off my Life Is Strange playthrough!

      But the channel itself is here:

      Thanks for your time if you decide to check it out!

    • Winter Sickness

      4 years ago

      IcepickXIII

      In December I had a week and a half long stretch of being sick. Enough so that I had to call in to work for that period of time. This month I run into the same sickness again, a sinus related illness, and it's causing me to miss work even more. I'm doing whatever I can to take care of this as soon as I can without missing too much work. I'm already fearing for my job as it is because of my first stint with the sickness, so I'm being extra careful now.

      Hopefully I'll get rid of it by Sunday morning.

    • Bad Company 2 Multiplayer (Not working?)

      Hey all, I just downloaded Bad Company 2 on X360 thanks to the Games with Gold promotion, and was wondering if anyone else was having an issue getting on to the multiplayer? Google search didn't yield any useful insight, so I'm turning to my fellow RTers to see if any of you have come across this issue as well.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Jessica Jung rumored to be kicked out of Girls' Generation?

      4 years ago

      IcepickXIII

      The story in question:
      www.allkpop.com/article/2014/09/jessica-dropp...

      I'm hoping this is just a rumor, but SM's silence is really bugging me. If this was really just a hacker, SM would have piped up almost immediately to nip the rumor in the bud, but the fact that no one has said anything yet, coupled with these recent photos (I haven't seen them myself) of other members looking upset, disturbed or even angry just makes me uneasy.

      Not only that, but SM Entertainment's stock is taking a hit as well. SM saw a 3.44% drop today as a direct result of these rumors. The photos only seem to reinforce the idea, which you can see here:
      www.allkpop.com/article/2014/09/jessicas-abse...

      Jessica is my favorite member of SNSD, so I hope to have some light shed on the subject soon.

      We'll just have to wait and see what happens. SM, SNSD or Jessica has to elaborate on this statement that seemingly came out of nowhere, or else the fans will get even more worried.

      This is still only a rumor. Here's to hoping it's just that.
      Any KPOP fans have any thoughts?

    • Wings

      4 years ago

      IcepickXIII

      I've been listening to Wings from the RWBY soundtrack lately, and the first section of the song is incredible to me. It sends me back to familiar and bittersweet times.

      Years ago, when I was about 12 or 13, I would listen to music that would have a similar vibe that Wings has. I kept up listening to different kinds of music, like punk rock, alternative and even dance music. (Fun fact; it was around this time that I discovered Styles & Breeze and that snowballed into the Hardcore fan that I am now). At around the age of 15, I found out I was moving to Texas, so I would get pretty melancholic since I didn't fancy the idea of leaving my friends. It was a chill Winter, and I would take walks by myself around my neighborhood at night. Christmas was just around the corner, so apartments and houses were decked out with holiday fervor.

      I'd take my music with me. A playlist of calming, and bittersweet tracks that spoke to me. The lyrics didn't necessarily hit home, but the music did. It felt like the music had another story to tell; my story. I'd listen to these notes pluck away in my ears, walking by the homes with soft glowing lights.

      Wings takes me back to that time. It was sad, but it was also warm. The world didn't end. I would see my friends again. I would come back home. Wings reassures me that everything will be okay; that eventually things will look up and to never give up.

      "Don't be disappointed
      Don't let your heart break
      Don't spend another minute in this way
      It's okay"

      Thanks Jeff & Casey, for creating and bringing to life music that can touch a person's heart.

        ROC race stands for.... I think... "Ridiculous Obstacle Course". It was sooo much fun! Many of the obstacles are similar to those of the show WipeOut.
        And my day went well! I worked literally ALL day yesteday (Monday), and will do the same tomorrow (Wednesday).
        How's the move going? And did you have a good day today as well?

        What's the ROC Race? I mean, I guess your current profile pic is from that. I'm gonna guess a summer obstacle course? :D
        So how'd your day go? From the sound of it, it sounds like you're pretty busy today!
        I'm looking for a second job myself actually haha. Retail isn't quite paying the bills!
        And thanks! I'm really excited. It'll make it easier for me to make the Bracket Studio meetings since I'll be at the meeting place already! :D

        And I'm moving in with one of my friends this week, so it's a big week for me haha. I'll be able to work on more Let's Play stuff with him and the rest of the fellas! And also I'm about to drop a two track dubstep release on my bandcamp so I'm super excited. :D :D
        AND I'm waiting on some CD's I got from one of my favorite UK Hardcore labels so there's so much to be giddy about haha. I'm like a little kid waiting for Christmas morning!!!
