It’s amazing what anime can do sometimes.

Yeah sure, people do say they are for kids, pedophiles, perverts and what have you all the time, but I dare say that those people are the ones that have not watched a great show to change their stereotypes yet.

Well, at least for me it sure helps to raise my spirits when needed ^^;

still alive

Me, that is. Even though it’s been a month and 6 days since the last post ^^;

Anyway, before I start my rambling, here’s an awesome video about an even more awesome song from probably the most awesome game ever.

here it goes again

Today’s the first day of university classes and considering the fact that these are the first lectures I’ve attended in almost 3 years, they were a kind jolt back to academic life. Not.

Considering the fact that engineering courses are among the more rigorous ones campus has to offer, I was hardly surprised at the lack of the mandatory introductory chit-chat that was so common during first lectures.

Oh well, at least the notes are all available online for printing and the mid-term test dates are already out – 6 weeks to the first trial by fire -_-”

Having applied for computer engineering with no prior computing background, there’s always a nagging feeling that I’ve knowingly gotten myself into the deeper end of the ditch but hopefully it will turn out that I’m wrong at the end of the 4 years ^^;

The timetable’s not been too kind to me so far – I’m stuck in school for effectively 4 and a half whole days a week, but luckily it’s only for one semester.

On the bright side, all the spare time can be used for studying. On the down side, there’s not much else that can be done in campus to kill 5 hours of time -_-”

On other non-academic matters, I’m now a proud 21 year old adult as of 08/08/08, although I don’t know what has changed drastically in my life. R21 movies perhaps?

No lavish presents for me, though I was pretty surprised and pleased that Via planned our spa trip to Batam and got me a Ronaldo Champions Legue jersey. Thanks dear :)

And last but not least, here’s to Tuesday classes that start at 2pm tomorrow. Hurray for sleep-ins!! XD

ZETA plus C1

Well, it’s August in a blink of an eye. School’s starting next week much to my chagrin, but on the bright side EPL is making its comeback on the weekends and my birthday is this Friday!

I guess this year is kinda special and all, since it’s 08/08/08 and the start of the Olympics so I was wondering whether I should just try my hand at the special S$8 million TOTO draw on the very day.

Who knows, maybe I will have more luck on my birthday than usual ^^;

Wishful thinking aside, I finally completed my Zeta Plus C1 Gundam model that I bought 3 years ago. Hurray!! XD

Mega Man 9

July 12, 2008 at 8:06 pm (gaming, ramblings, videos) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I can’t even put into words what this news means to me.

It’s freaking old-school Mega Man action for goodness sakes!!

Screw the Battle Network crap, this is what being the blue bomber really is about – kicking 2D robot butt in all its 2D side-scrolling greatness! Hell yeah!!

(Ok, I guess the Mega Man Zero series doesn’t suck that much, but Zero is kinda emo if you get what I mean lol.)

Seeing this trailer sure brings back the memories of my adventures on my now defunct Sega Mega Drive – falling into bottomless pits, touching instantly fatal spikes as well as getting pwned by Dr. Wily for the gazzillionth time and all that nonsense – but at least it was fun.

Ah, the joys of 8-bit gaming..

Now, the next step would be to actually acquire a next-gen console before it releases.

Damn -_-“
