    • AHWU and I'm An Idiot

      Trym

      So let's start with the upbeat shit first, I was on the tail end of AHWU this week when I went to see the 2 season opener MLB games between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks in Sydney! On the other hand when I got a new credit card I switched everything over (iphone, crunchyroll, rent, etc.) except my Roosterteeth sponsorship.........god I'm dumb. That however has been corrected now.

    • Soul Silver Nuzlocke Run Part 7 And Another 100%

      I have managed to make some more progress over the last week and here are the 'highlights' so to speak

      -Cleared out Erika's Grass gym with Firefox (Ninetails)
      -Ceaned up trainers down the biking path and below Lavender Town
      -Beat Janine using only Esper (Alakazam)
      -Level up Sonar (Golbat)
      -Sonar evolved (Golbat -> Crobat)
      -Woke up Snorlax, unfortunately had already had a random encounter there so had to knock him out
      -Went through Diglett Cave and came out at Pewter City
      -Swept Brock at the Pewter Gym using Biohazard (Nidoking) and Vortex (Feraligatr)
      -Traveled to Cinnabar Island, healed up and spoke to Blue
      -Surfed over to Seafoam Islands
      -Battled Blaine and took down his entire group of trainers and himself with Esper and Feraligatr had a bit of a scare when his Rapidash hit Esper with a critical, managed to hold on with 28 HP
      -Went back to Vermillion City
      -Cleared out the gym of trainers and challenged Blue
      -Beat Blue by alternating between Firefox (took out Exeggutor), Esper (took out Machamp), Feraligatr (took out Rhydon and Arcanine) and Static (took out Gyarados and Pidgeot), like Blaine had a close call when Pidgeot critical hit Static, though had more than enough HP to finish him off with one last Discharge
      -After that I visited Prof. Oak to open up Mt. Silver for me and ran back and caught the Bird trio since I had yet to have any sort of encounter in their areas (in case anyone is wondering I'm doing the run without legendaries that are on the banned list on smogon, so no Mewtwo, Mew, Celebi, Gyoudre, Rayquaza, Dialga, etc.)

      On an unrelated note I decided a few weeks back that I would clear out the remaining achievements on Mass Effect, since i was missing 4 of the ally achievements, the insanity run, a couple pertaining to Pinnacle Station and the lvl 60 achievement. As of today I've finished that clean up and after I have some down time on South Park: The Stick of Truth I'll go plough through Mass Effect 3 to complete the trilogy (I have played ME3 but it was on another gamer tag so I feel obligated to get the achievements on my actual gamer tag.

      Alright so muscled through more of the game and managed to take the boat over to Kanto, specifically Vermillion City.

      -Beat Lt. Surge no problems, cleared his Pokemon out with Biohazard
      -Moved up 2 cities to Cerulean city
      -Went to the Power Plant
      -Went back to Cerulean and got the machine part for the Power Plant
      -Battled Misty and won with no problems, Static cleaned the floor with those water Pokemon
      -Went down to Saffron City
      -Worked my way through the gym
      -Fought Sabrina, started up with Apparition (Gengar) unfortunately her Espeon knew shadow ball and hitting me with that after buffing up with Calm Mind knocked Apparition the fuck out. Turned to Esper and he just managed to clean out the rest of the team after Firefox narrowly took down Espeon
      -All in all one important Pokemon down. RIP Apparition

      I suppose next up is Erika, Janine and Blaine and maybe the last few gym leaders if I get the time.

      Ok so yea I have been neglecting to continue this but thats more because other shit has been popping up, anyhow heres how the fight with the Elite Four went today, first here is the lineup I had ready to go for these battles, keep in mind I only used healing items after each battle, not during.

      Static (Ampharos) - Discharge, Charge Beam, Signal Beam and Focus Blast
      Vortex (Feraligatr) - Hail, Ice Fang, Blizzard and Crunch
      Biohazard (Nidoking) - Fire Blast, Earth Power, Thunder and Blizzard
      Darigaaz (Dragonair) - Draco Meteor, Dragon Rush, Thunder and Aqua Tail
      Esper (Alakazam) - Recover, Shadow Ball, Focus Blast, Psychic
      Firefox (Ninetails) - Fire Blast, Extrasensory, Dark Pulse, Flamethrower

      Ok so my first fight with Will, the psychic E4, things started a bit scary since his Natu used 'Me First' and used the discharge I was aiming to hit him with and paralyzed him, managed to down him after he knocked off half of Static's health and paralyzed him. The rest of his pokemon were pretty simple to push through.

      The second fight against Koga, the poison E4, was again not much problem ended up using just Firefox and Esper since the bug types went down with fire moves and the mainly poison pokemon went down with psychic moves. NEXT!

      The third fight went against Bruno, the fighting E4, again not much issues here, Esper for the fighting types and Vortex for the Onix.

      The fourth fight had a bit of hiccups, but thats more because of the fact that Karen, the dark type E4, has a bigger blend of types. Anyhow Umbreon is always a bit of a bitch and Biohazard missing a megahorn did not help at all, thankfully the second didn't miss. After that Vileplume managed to paralyze Biohazard so I had to swap him out for Static and used signal beam to clear out the dark type pokemon, Firefox for Vileplume and Vortex for Houndoom. Close call with Biohazard but got off safe.

      Finally the Champion, Lance. Started off with Static to down Gyarados quickly, next swapped out for Biohazard against the 3 Dragonites, and had some stupid luck and got 3 blizzards to hit in a row clearing out all of the Dragonites. Charizard and Aerodactyl were next and got cleared out by Biohazard using Surf. So won with no loss of pokemon!

      Well thats that for the E4, next up the Kanto Gym Leaders and Red. I'll make sure to have the rest down much more quickly.

      So was helping a couple friends out at their orientation day booth at QUT, the university I will be doing my PhD through and someone hands us a flyer for something..........A Pokemon gym/league challenge. They've set up 8 people with preset monotype teams, 4 monotype people to make the elite 4 and a mixed trainer as the pokemon champ, I think its been a long time since I've needed out to the point that others can't understand.

      So, as of last night I 100%'d Fable Anniversary and I must say after playing it I felt an overwhelming bit of nostalgia that made me remember why I loved the franchise to begin with, and why Fable 2 and 3 were so much worse than the original. Well now to continue catching up on games I've neglected over the last year or so.

      We'll finally breached 50,000 GS last night while finishing off Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon (what an awesome game). I definitely should have ditched AC3 sooner as that last privateer mission had me ready to tear my hair out. Anyhow, on to Fable Anniversary to get back into the RPGS side and then continue to catch up on other games (Metro Last Light, Bioshock Infinite, Saints Row IV, Skyrim, AC 4, The Darkness 2 and Mass Effect 3, I have played ME3 all the way through but it wasn't on my current gamer tag so need to breeze through to get the achievements) Should be a fun time getting to 60k.

      So another random set of shit that happened over the last week. First of which occurred when I applied for a new visa to cover my time doing my PhD. Now a few days after I put in the application I got an email from 'Perth Onshore Students' the western australia office of immigration (keep in mind I'm going to be doing it in Brisbane, which is at the other side of the country. So I reply to the email just asking whether I made a mistake in the application as I am going to be doing my PhD in Brisbane. The person who received it proceeded to reply in a way that seems assholish and just damn confusing to me. The reply itself said this

      "Sensitive

      Dear Mr Franklin,

      You have applied for an Australian 574 visa. Perth is to Australia like Vancouver is to Canada and Brisbane, also an Australian city, to eastern Canada's Halifax.


      Yours sincerely

      Glen"

      Now This was pretty fucking rude from my point of view but, what really weirded me out is he didn't answer my question at all and on top of that sent this email despite the fact that his position ID was in the email. So all in all thanks for the fucking geography lesson Glen.

      On another note, I just moved into a new apartment a few days ago, now thankfully I no longer have to deal with my idiot of a flatmate however one of my roommates (though she is moving out in a week or so) has a boyfriend who frequently stays over. Now I have no issue with this except he gets in hours before she does, smelling like he just took a bath in a pool of sweat and forgot to whip his ass the last time he took a shit and decides to sit on my bed an have me load up videos for him to watch on my computer...........................THE FUCK?! Guess I traded one maddening situation for another.

      So for the past 2 years one of my roommates has just been an egregious bitch. She's one of those people who won't clean up after themselves and are noisy as fuck all the time (ie. leaving garbage in the hall until maggots are crawling out or blasting music in the kitchen until 3-4am on a Tuesday). Anyhow FINALLY after several complaints from neighbours as well as myself and my other roommates the building manager decided 'Ok Ok! We'll 'relocate' her', now I hear this as I go out to buy groceries leaving me in a GREAT mood. Until I got home to find that the hallway in the flat is soaked in water and same with the entry to my room.......................FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCKKKKK!
