I HAVE FINALLY DONE IT!
MASTER MODE TOO! FIRST RUN OF THE GAME!
MUSIC WAS PLAYING AS MY TORCH BREATHED ITS LAST BREATHS DURING THE FINAL BATTLE, THE TENSION WAS SO THICK I WAS HYPERVENTILATING!
BUT I DID IT
It’s not often that I write personal posts, I try to keep my personal life to myself as much as possible. But boxing is something that means a lot to me and a lot of people ask me why it is that I got involved in this in the first place, so I thought it would be appropriate to write up a little something about it I don’t know.
It’s gonna be a bit you know, bluh, and also probably a bit long winded so here’s your warning.
A long overdue update on my RG 1/144 Freedom I posted about a few months ago.
Basically everything is finished now except for a finishing matte spray (which I’m testing out on the remaining sprues to make sure Testor’s brand doesn’t react poorly to the plastic)
I have a lot of things to say about this kit but I’ll save it for a final master post of pictures I’m hoping to take this weekend after finishing the matte coating.
And with that, Dark Souls II is now 100% completed, that makes all 3 souls games.
Since roughly a month after the game was released I’ve been sitting on the last two achievements (all pyromancies and all miracles) due to the excessive requirements to get them… finally got up the ambition to complete it
The best part was beating The Rotten on NG++++++++ to farm for souls to unlock the Shrine of Winter early, getting all the way to Wellager thinking I’d get the last miracles I needed, and then finding out I’m a goddamn idiot and forgot one
Then having to quick rush my way back to the Iron Keep to get it
Because I’m a goddamn idiot
Today was moving day for a certain little miss in my household!
Her old tank was getting too small as she grew and it was about time I moved her into a dwelling capable of housing her from now on. Hopefully she enjoys her new home.
(Apologies going out to those friends who actually wanted to assist in the process of moving Ariadne, Specifically Laura who asked me like 5 times when I was moving her to which I always replied “iunno”. It sprang up on me when I found a bit of mold had formed on her old water dish for god knows what reason so I rushed the process of moving her. I owe you all a pizza.)
[EDIT] Looks like once again she will not be using her little cave dwelling, as shortly after arriving into her new tank she has begun to seal the entrance shut with web. maybe she doesn’t like the dark[/EDIT]
forgot to post this yesterday, but yesterday afternoon Mike Tyson did an AMA on Reddit (which can be found here). During said AMA I got the chance to ask him a couple questions and happily got answers to them both.
Q: There’s a lot of talk that Wladimir Klitschko has been reigning heavyweight champ for so long because there aren’t any good heavyweight fighters left. Do you think this is the case or do you think Klitschko would still have been a formidable heavyweight champion even in the golden age?
A: I think he would have done well in any era
Q: It seems like a lot of people also question the legitimacy of Floyd Mayweather’s undefeated record accusing him of cherry-picking his fights, what’s your opinion on him?
A: Floyd, I don’t know. He has beaten everyone he has fought. He is the cream of the crop. I would love to see him fight Pacquiao though.
Very down to earth guy and I was extremely excited to have the opportunity to ask one of the greatest fighters of all time and one of my personal heroes a few questions.
The rest of the AMA was awesome and I highly recommend any boxing fans who missed it to check it out.
[EDIT] Iron Mike did end up answering the “state of the heavyweight divison” question though when it was asked by someone else, his response was:
[The Heavyweight division] is not as good as it could be. I think once promoters start putting their fighters in fights they might lose, it will bring out the best in boxing. The sport has to improve at giving the fans what they want. Too many promoters promote fighters, but I want to promote boxing.
not everyone is created equal,
(not in a racist way I’m talking more about willpower,
sorry if you thought that was a racist or sexist comment)
some are quicker to make an excuse than a commitment
but we live in a world where if you don’t decide to be the very best someone will step up and be happy to take your place
today I’ve scaled a new peak and you know what? view’s pretty good from up here
Takeshi, I’ve beaten your challenge
It took 3 college-attending men about 25 minutes of attempting to figure out how to turn on the goddamn shower before we finally sucked up whatever pride we had left and asked the front desk how it worked.
Turns out the idea of turning the knob to the fucking left never occured to any of us.
These are the things you should probably be taught in college
