I am playing a lot of StarCraft

Posted by meronpan on August 9, 2010

So I apologize for my tardy reviews ^^;;;

Vivio, Mio, and Sheryl are all waiting in my queue but I still haven’t been able to tear myself away.

Luckily Tier has you covered for Vivio.  Awesome pics, check it out if ya haven’t already.  Check it out again if ya have, it’s great ^^

Had a whole post but it was mostly just inconsequential ranting so I’ll just leave it at this:  awesome game.  Single & multi both very solid.

Looks like I’m currently a low diamond 1v1 player though I’m happy to play whatever else. Send me a tweet if you’d like to look me up in game.

En taro tassadar!

And we’ll see if I can get those reviews out in the next week or two ^^;;;

Touhou & Prints

Posted by meronpan on June 30, 2010

Combo post today that’s part site update, part rambling on my current activities… I’ve been sick with a stomach bug or something for the last week which unfortunately put a stop to the momentum I was gonna have with azunyan + brs reviews going up. Think I’m just about over it now, so /cross fingers.  BRS review will be out probably sometime in the next week? but in the meantime you can check out some lovely shots over at Cool & Spicy.

touhou chireiden – subterranean animism – th11 – sa… whatever ya wanna call it, it’s generally considered to be one of, if not the hardest touhou shooter… and i finally 1cc’d it on normal!  Warning: for the uninitiated, this is just one of my self indulgent touhou achievement posts ^^;

touhou psa: VSYNC

Posted by meronpan on April 20, 2010

Quick touhou post:  I noticed lately that when I went back to play some eosd or pcb the controls felt strangely laggy.  My computer hasn’t really changed so it was really puzzling and frustrating to have reimu so unresponsive.  Then I stumbled upon this thread!

If you really enjoyed FFXIII, this is probably not a post that’ll sit well with you.  I pass no judgment if you thought it was great… in fact I’d be a little envious since I have been playing the series for so long and am sad that this installment failed to match up to my expectations.  If you’d like to commiserate on how FFXIII fell short of glory, well, let’s get started… (major spoilers!)

Approaching a year since its release but it was just last month in Akiba when I acquired my copy.  If only the latest and greatest suit your fancy, check back in a few days when my nanoha -stand by ready- review should be going up ^_^  Then again… there was Lost today and St. Patrick’s Day on Wednesday… perhaps by the end of the week then? ^^;

東方花映塚 ~ Phantasmagoria of Flower View

1cc on normal! woooooo!  4 touhou’s down, 3 to go ^^  東方花映塚 (tôhô kaêzuka (kunrei-shiki)) is the ninth game in the series and very very different from the previous ones.  In pofv you battle against an opponent split-screen as faeries, spirits, and bullets randomly spawn and attack you.

東方永夜抄 ~ Imperishable Night Extravaganza

Posted by meronpan on December 23, 2009

Time for another touhou post!  I’ve 1cc’d my third touhou on normal, Imperishable Night!  I believe this is considered one of the easier (perhaps the easiest?) ones but nevertheless, I consider any 1cc of any touhou on any difficulty an accomplishment :P

IN was actually the one and only touhou I’ve ever 1-shot… kind of.  Back in August I had played a couple times on normal I believe, decided to give easy a try, 1cc’d it on my first attempt.  So technically it wasn’t the first time I had played IN but it was the first time I had played it on easy (and the first time I had ever seen lots of the later stages/cards).  Here’s the replay for that run:

東方風神録 & Blog Happenings

Posted by meronpan on November 22, 2009

So two things today…

First is just a 1cc of Touhou 10 – Mountain of Faith, easy difficulty.  Did that a couple months ago but only recently got it uploaded.  Mountain of Faith has a different approach to bombs – instead of having a separate stock, using a bomb decreases your power by 1.  As such if you know where/when you’re gonna get some power items, you can bomb away.  Other than that I guess it’s standard touhou fare.
