Word of the Moment: 出張
Posted by meronpan on September 21, 2009
Just a random update… busy busy busy lately. Still pretty light on the posting and the business trip I’m leaving for tomorrow isn’t helping things. Heading out to the east coast to spend the rest of the work week in virginia.
In japanese, 出張 ＝＝ しゅっちょう ＝＝ shucchou (if you’re not familiar with romaji i guess the closest english pronunciation might be, “shoot chō”) == business trip. On the plus side, this’ll mean I’m 5,000 frequent flier miles closer to a business class upgrade when I go to Japan :P
Touhou on my mind since I’ve got all my touhou games installed on my work laptop to keep me occupied ^^;
I’m sure you’re all completely uninterested by now, but ima post it anyway… yet another eosd reimuB clear! ^^;;
Think I mentioned it earlier — this is the run I finally managed to complete with the default 3 lives (previous ones I had to bump it up to 5). Other than the personal milestone, nothing special at all… still just normal difficulty ^^;
As you might’ve guessed from the pics or otherwise, I’m currently working on the 2nd touhou to be released for windows – 東方妖々夢 – touhou youyoumu – Perfect Cherry Blossom (the 7th game in the series). I’m planning to 1cc them all on normal in order… eventually tackle the extra stages but that still seems out of my league ^^;
I’ve almost got stage 4 under control (prismriver sisters aren’t feeling anywhere as bad as patchy) but youmu (above)…. youmu destroys me ;_;
At least I think I’ve figured out my difficulty… I have absolutely no skill when it comes to dodging horizontally moving bullets. In the above and below screenshots, the two different color bullets you see are weaving together (blue going right, yellow left) while falling down…
It actually seemed pretty easy at first, since there’s these nice safe spots that open up if you maneuver to the right place… yet I still fail and ram into bullets like a fool.
Ironic that this is actually easier for me:
(well, ‘course if you’re not familiar, time slows down for a brief moment during each wave so it’s not as bad as it looks :P)
Ack, gotta pack! Didn’t mean to rant on about touhou like that ^^; Been wanting to get around to another japanese lesson post, one on harumination (manga), and of course some figures reviews (well, at this point it’d have to be older stuff but maybe something’ll turn up in the mail soon :P)… will all have to wait till I get back thou.
