      I AM NOT DEAD!!

      YET!!

      By the Precursors it has been a long time...a whole year since my last update...

      I've been keeping up with most of RT's stuff, just mostly through YouTube. I do plan on reintroducing myself back into the community, but I'm going to start small, just checking once a day on updates 'n stuff.

      Anyway, if anyone still watches me and sees this, I've been playing Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Message me if you play too and are interested in getting together. Never hurts to have more friends!


      Sincerely,

    • How's Everyone Been?

      Hey guys...been a long time since my last thing here...heh, I've typed that before...

      Anyway, I feel like I need to apologize for my extended absence...I'm still reeling from the loss of my dad, had several emotional break-downs in the past few weeks...it's even managed to negatively impact my performance in college so I've been spending quite a bit of time playing catch-up. Fortunately I have wonderful, understanding professors who have been a major help in my academic recovery...

      On to happier things...

      I've been playing the crap out of Skyrim, League of Legends, Guild Wars 2, and Borderlands 2 lately.

      Skyrim:
      I'm having a hard time finishing this game 'cause I keep getting distracted either by other games or new character ideas...I want to try something with summoning atronachs...but I REALLY like getting kill-cams...finding it difficult to find a balance, any suggestions would be welcome.

      League of Legends:
      With all the new champs and other things that have come out this year, things have gotten pretty nuts but I'm still loving this game and likely will for a long time to come. Loving Jax on the new Twisted Treeline map...Jax is kind of OP...

      Guild Wars 2:
      Played this a lot when it first came out, though escalations in work and such have slowed my progress to a halt. Gave many of the classes a go and I'm really liking my human guardian right now.

      Borderlands 2:
      Fell in love with the Mechromancer as soon as I started playing her. I'm not level 50 with her yet, but I'm doing everything I can to turn Deathtrap into my own personal boss fight.

      If anyone plays (or wants to play) League of Legends and/or Borderlands 2 (mind you I play Borderlands 2 on PC) and would like a little company, let me know! Even if you don't play League but would like to, I'm more than happy to help...I am by no means an expert though and have a long way to go, it is always nice to play with others I can talk to in and out of the game (after all the game IS completely free to play).

      Anyway, it's going to take some time to catch up on everyone's journals and pics and such, but I'll get around to it! It's been a while but I'd love to know what everyone has been up to and such.


      Sincerely,
      Vincent Sylvanne

      okay, after fighting with the RvB images section to simply post these there, I went to my old photobucket account...here's hoping this works...

      Here's Char Aznable's Sazabi:

      IMG_0021.jpg

      Kenshin Himura from "Rurouni Kenshin":

      IMG_0023.jpg

      and both side-by-side for comparison:

      IMG_0024.jpg

      These are my first model kit and figure, respectively. If you don't recognize either one, shame on you, drop what you're doing and fix that. Sazabi can be found in the Gundam movie: Char's Revenge...though you'd need to watch the original series to get anything that's going on...and Kenshin is from "Rurouni Kenshin." Read them, watch them, either, both, don't care, just do it. NOW.

      Would have had this stuff uploaded sooner, but Sazabi took longer than I thought...pokey bits...(*cue emo crybaby*: IT'S PAINTED RED WITH MY BLOOD!!) and my sister took her sweet time in getting the files to me...

      Of course...if these pics aren't displaying properly, please let me know...assuming anyone cares. Also, please no negative comments on my skill at building model kits...it's my first one, I think I deserve a little slack.


      Sincerely,
      Vincent Sylvanne

    • So...BORED!

      Let's see...a few things to cover...

      Went to the A-Kon anime convention in Dallas, Texas this last weekend, that was fun. Bought more stuff this time around then ever before:

      - Spent $100 on artwork (again)
      - a few Magic: The Gathering Cards (specifically a few angels from the newest set)
      - my very first figurine: a Kenshin Himura figure (shame on you if you don't know that name)
      - and my first model kit: Char's Sazabi (my favorite mobile suit).

      Saw a few good cosplays, even a few League of Legends characters, but for the most part I was kind of underwhelmed at most of the cosplays this year...oh well, luck of the draw I guess.

      I'll be sure to post pics of the cosplays and figure and model a.s.a.p...though the Sazabi will take time...I've never had a model kit before and I'll need to find decent cutters and such...and figure out if it needs some kind of adhesive...I don't think it does...(any advice on model kits is appreciated)

      Got to see Mookie's (creator of Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire webcomic) writing panels again, they were awesome as always.

      Even got to see Team Four Star's 18+ panel. They decided to get totally shit-face drunk before hand, so just imagine Lanipator, KaiserNeko, and Takahata101 really drunk. One guy got Takahata to sign his ass, Lanipator spent most of the panel drawing dicks with MSPaint on the projector screen, and during an impromptu signing, Takahata complimented me on my beard...and we swaped League of Legend stories. Fun times were had.

      - Oh, also got to see the first half of the next episode 30, it was AWESOME!

      In other news, caught up on Franken Fran...kinda sad it ended like that...it wasn't some kind of bad ending or anything, just felt sudden...ah well...

      As such, I don't know what to read now. I think I might get back into Omamori Himari...assuming I can spell it right, but I want to hear what you guys think. Romantic comedy, action, drama, I'm up for most any type of manga or anime. So please share your ideas on what I should read next...I'm spending a lot of time in front of a computer at the office this summer to a whole lot of nothing...need to pass the time.

      Vincent Sylvanne

    • oh, NOW my dreams start coming true!

      Not sure how many of you know, or care, but yesterday LEGEND OF DRAGOON was released for sale on PSN for around $6...and it's about a 1.2 GB download.

      Legend_of_Dragoon_Wallpaper4.jpg

      That means I (and you all too) can take Dart and Company anywhere you want via your PS3 or PSP...or PSP Vita I guess...I don't know about those things, my PSP's just fine for me right now (honestly haven't really looked into it much).

      Haven't had the time to really sit down and check-up to see what you all are doing, but whatever it is, drop it, and give this game a go. For those of us that grew up with this game, huzzahs are in order, for those of you who haven't (and provided you have a PS3/PSP/PSPVita/whatever) $6 isn't much more than a rental...I think...honestly not sure on that one, last time I rented was long before Netflix was even an idea...and that was for about $4-5 I think...*shrugs*...now I feel old... smiley2.gif

      Either way, get it or at least spread the word. I still have every intention and slinking my way into Sony and FORCING THEM INTO MAKING A REMAKE!!!

      ...*ahem*...

      That's all for me for now.

      I must apologize for my extended absence...there's a line I've typed before...

      This time though, it isn't from school work, or boredom with the internet, or any of the usual things that keep people offline.

      Wednesday, two weeks ago, my father died.

      He had been in declining health for years, so I knew it would happen eventually, but still, I needed some "me" time.

      I promise I'll get back to being a part of this community and bringing smiles/tears/laughs/nightmares/whatever I usually cause in you soon.

      VincentSylv

      Well folks, I FINALLY HAVE AN AWESOME DESKTOP!!

      Took three separate package deliveries, a few days of waiting on friends to make time and more than one emergency trip to Best Buy, but I finally have an awesome desktop!

      My laptop for the past several weeks had been having problems, I suspect graphics card related, but I was finally forced to pony-up for a new computer. That's why I haven't been on or updated much of anything for a good long while. Should be remedying that soon...man, I am not used to a 24" screen...or a decent gaming keyboard...oh well, I'm pleased with the results. Now I can play StarCraft 2, Team Fortress 2, League of Legends, and a host of other games and not suck.

      That's the highlight of my month...or so...that and I'm getting ME3 via pre-order.

      What's new with you guys?

      Happy New Year folks!
      (yes this is going up before then, don't argue)

      Here's hoping for the best. Also, it's the year of the dragon, dragon is my sign...I'm not superstitious...but here's hoping things go my way.

      My new year resolution? Cut back on the lazy. It's a big problem. Really need to work on it. Doubly so with college approaching an end in a few semesters...

      How about you all? What are your hopes for the new year?

      7 years ago

      VincentSylv

      I AM SO HAPPY TO BE FINISHED WITH SCHOOL THIS YEAR!!

      :DDDDDDDDD

      In other news....I got nothing...

      Well, did get back big time into Magic: The Gathering, if only because now most of my friends have gotten into it and I have to show them who's boss. Which is fine by me 'cause now I've finally got the mono-white Angel deck working. Makes me happy to slowly build up an army of lovely flying ladies and then drop a bombshell like Akroma, Angel of Wrath and just trololol to victory.

      Anyway, other than now having all the time to do whatever I want...which is going to boil down to League of Legends and Skyrim, not much else going on with me.

      How about you guys? Any plans for Christmas/Hanukkah/Winter Break/whatever your religious/non-religious celebration is?

    • Huh...

      7 years ago

      VincentSylv

      it's been a while since I posted anything here...let's fix that.

      Let's see...where to begin?

      Picked up Batman: Arkham City when it came out...pre-order of course. Beat the main story about a week afterwards, still need to finish the side quests in New Game+.

      I've been slowly working on my back-log of games...and that progress had ground to a halt since I bought Skyrim for the PS3. It's a pretty game, though I'm sure most (if not all) of you know that by now. I'm playing a female Nord that I tried to make resemble Danny from Game of Thrones. I specialize in one-handed swords, light armor, destruction & healing magic, and smithing. I dabble a bit in sneaking and archery, but only two or three points into those. Aside from having a set of Flawless Scaled Armor by Level 14 as well as a Flawless Skyforge Steel Sword, my biggest accomplishment is that fact that I haven't died yet. People keep crying about dying all the time...hasn't happened for me yet though. Of course, I've yet to face a Blood Dragon or those little bug things at the bottom or caves...whatever they're called...they sound horrific to be honest...but then the dragon fights sounded like half the world would be dead by the time I finish...still, it's a fun game and if you haven't gotten it yet, fix that. Now.

      What else...been working on my novel some more thanks to my Fiction Workshop class. Might post it later, see what people here think. Though to be honest I'd be surprised if anyone is still watching me...kind of my own fault though.

      Not much else going on with me. Just going school, trying to do well...all that jazz.

      One little note about a not-so-little thing: The S.O.P.A....**** that ****! If you haven't heard about the Stop Online Piracy Act, go look it up, and then do what you can to contact your congressman and tell them how bad an idea this is! Unless you don't live in the U.S.A. In such a case, please pray (if you're the praying type) that this doesn't go through. It will bone everyone over.

      I don't make a habit of watching, though, so I don't remember too many of the contestants. If there's something else I'd rather be doing, I do it. Or, better still, if there's something I'd rather be doing but can still do it in front of the tv, that's what I do :P
      If there's something I should be doing... well, I still need to work on that a bit -__-;

      I don't remember seeing that one. The two from the other day were the first of the summer series (for this year, I think) and an all-star one (remember, "Where's the pole?").

    • Raltrios

      8 years ago

      Thank you for reading, and I'm sorry. That crack I made about friends was probably over the top. I was in rage mode when I wrote that, so don't worry about it too much. The last time I got a journal comment that wasn't from you was over a month ago, so I guess I was just feeling lonely or something on top of being frustrated. I don't comment on every journal, either.
      I do have somewhere I might be able to go - my mom's place, almost a two-hour drive from where I live now. That would mean I probably couldn't hold my job here, but it would be a good place to get started. I might talk with her about it when we call her on wednesday, I don't think my dad's told her yet.
      Some people have been telling me that this move might be a good opportunity for me. The city would have more jobs and more stuff for me to do in a smaller area. I see their point, and it does make me feel a little less irritated, but I grew up there, and my past experiences give me natural misgivings. Think about having a broken keepsake: The object may be useless, but it has sentimental value, so you don't want to throw it away. My current situation is the opposite: The city is far more useful to me than where I live (excluding current job and proximity to shopping locations, etc.), but the memories make me want to stay away.
      It's actually kind of funny in that way... When we moved here I didn't really want to leave because Winnipeg and my grandparents' place in Ontario were all I knew. But since moving here and finding something to compare them to, there's one thing about this place that makes it stand out - the people are much nicer in general. There's a few I don't like, which is to be expected, but I have no real enemies to speak of like I did in Winnipeg.
      I'll probably feel better about it after a few days. That doesn't mean I won't try to man up, but I consider myself to be someone who can cope with unexpected changes, no matter how much I hate it when snags come up with little to no warning.

      It still feels like erasing her memory wasn't necessary. She was happy as she was before. Despite what she said, I'm sure she would have moved out of her vampire house eventually.

      Well, did you see ALL of Higurashi? Kai and Rei included? I'd say Higu ended happily, so I expect the same from Umineko.

    • Raltrios

      9 years ago

      Yeah, I'm really enjoying it, too! I think it's a shoujo manga technically, but I still like it. I've finished up to the end of volume ten so far, but I put the next four on order at the library. Actually, there are only fourteen volumes, right? Then I should be done shortly after those come in.

    • Raltrios

      9 years ago

      I've got the time covered with the alarm on my DS, so I can shut stuff down right away. And the job itself isn't bad right now. My coworkers are actually pretty helpful, so it's going well so far.

      Well there are actually plenty of much tougher bosses I could have mentioned, but Jack of Blades was memorable in his yell at the tv-ness
      And yunalesca was that hard, I beat her second try, but she was just so much fun to fight against, I guess a better title would have been most memorable boss fights.
