If it’s Digital, is it Not Really Mine?

Alright, so here’s something that is becoming increasingly annoying to me- digital software regulation. Perhaps you have heard og things such as Digital Rights Management or Digital Distribution. In this day in age, many companies are utilizing new technologies to better market their products. However, many companies are also using the new digital system to tighten their grip on consumer products even after they have sold it. My first issue is the Digital Rights Management system, or DRM. It used … Continue reading

Senior Year

I never participated in any of the events that were uniquely “senior” throughout the entire year. If one knows me, he is aware that I rarely do things without purpose, especially if the amount of effort required is more than the amount of satisfaction to be gained by doing the task. It’s not laziness its just well, doing things efficiently in my mind. Nonetheless, despite not even going to the graduation ceremony, I enjoyed my senior year, which turned out … Continue reading

Gaming Slump: A Self Fulfilling Prophecy

When I was younger, I used to see a bunch of commercials on t.v. advertising action figures and remote controlled cars. Nowadays, such toys seem to be a thing of the past as even the youngest of children are found playing video games. I consider myself a gamer… I think. Well, to be honest, upon observing my gaming habits I’m not so sure. I mean, I honestly can’t remember the last time I truly finished a game. During my middle … Continue reading

Walking Across Familiar Ground

So as some people have noticed, lately I’ve hovered around a bit over at EuphRO2 again. It’s been a year… maybe more… since my last experiences with the server. Upon visiting as a normal player however, I have to say that a lot has changed. Or perhaps I should say there is a lack of change? The server itself has had only two new NPCs and no updates since my departure. The change I am referring to however is within … Continue reading

Indeed, We’re All Trekkies Now

Captain’s Log: Stardate 10905.9 *Cough* I mean… Oh my, where to begin? Haha, I can imagine that the ones who know me well aren’t surprised one bit to see an article on the eleventh Star Trek movie here. Indeed, it’s no secret that I’m a Star Trek fan- To be more precise, the franchise is one of the few things that can get me really worked up! So naturally, I’ve been following the development of Star Trek XI closely, and … Continue reading

Come on, Gravity!

It’s been a while now since Ragnarok Online 2 was announced by Gravity. Can you still remember the excitement when a sequel to our beloved Ragnarok Online was announced? I mean, it hardly seems possible now doesn’t it? Believe it or not, Ragnarok Online 2 was once quite hyped up. Thoughts of seeing a 3D Prontera or Comodo along with the fact that Gravity hired Yoko Kanno to sing for some of the songs really attracted players… initially that is. … Continue reading

Project Evangeline

Update: Check out the changelog here! As the intensity of my workload increases as I prepare to engage in more challenging courses, I find less time to commit myself to a game. However, as one probably knows, it is quite difficult to just get up and walk away with the friends one plays with so instead, I find myself hanging around IRC more to chat with them. Of course, since many times the members tend to idle more in the … Continue reading

The Twilight Nekos

Listeners, listen, things like these do happen sometimes… Come, you must also listen… The words of a Guild Leader about his fallen guild… December 31, 2006. After months of playing Anima Ragnarok Online with a couple of friends, only_’d’ and sweetmoon88, I decide to make a guild. I had originally intended on doing so after I transcended into an Assassin Cross, but only_’d’ convinced me that it would be much more fun to have a group of people to talk … Continue reading

A Skewed Sense of Time

As many have probably noticed by now, I spend a large amount of time reminiscing about the past and what I would refer to as the “Good old days.” Since the dawn of the Internet, it was provided us with many new opportunities. People like me are able to do things never before possible and truly interact with people online and get things accomplished. As someone who enjoys to routinely perform a self analysis, I have noted that as a … Continue reading

A Look Back

I have quite a few draft posts sitting in my blogger… I’m sorry I haven’t been posting lately. However, I feel that the time to post something is when my feelings about the subject are at their apex… meaning that I don’t want to halfheartedly write something just to put out, I want it to tie in with my life and present a vivid topic for readers. Naturally, when one has lots of things to do, one looks at the … Continue reading
