Slow return to normality, but not just yet...Christmas has passed and a new year is upon us. Hectic days these past few months.
I've completed my first internship period with flying colors and next year is the final crunch in college.
I've been starting new projects on my end that should come to fruition as time passes. I need to finish my tank design, ship design, unit structures, rank charts and the new dropship design. I've also started a study of what different camo patterns would look like if they'd share the same color scheme (SURPAT) with approximately the same ratios.
Add to that a massive backlog of games I'd like to get off my list, including Dragon Age Origins and II, along with DLCs and add-ons before the release of Inquisition (300hrs or so of gaming ahead).
But once again World of Tanks has gripped me, thanks to clan activities and the latest challenge of grinding 700k experience points by week 3 to get a 50€ premium tank for free.
Couple that with general negligence/laziness that's been creep
BULK CRUNCH5 minutes to panic mode.
For the past two months I've been doing an internship four days a week 0830-1600, since the school period was "easy" now that most of my curriculum is done.
However, this does not leave much time for me to take care of my part in a school project. But I have a powerpoint to make for my group, and presentation's on friday.
2 minutes to panic mode.
On a good note, things should get a WHOLE lot easier next week, if not already this upcoming weekend.
But until then
Sporadic activity.Yeah, it's one of those periods again when I'm occupied by 50 different things at once.
Midsummer'sAnother Midsummer's is upon us.
Nothing really new happening except I'm inundated on all sides by having so many concurrent projects, many of which are on hold; several unfinished games; news and current affairs articles; and weekly gym quotas.
So I'm just gonna take the weekend absolutely chilling.
I've received very interesting stuff in the past week and I'll address them at the earliest opportunity.
I've also been walking through the eastern part of my home city and another environmental sample pack may very well be forthcoming.
"ALL THIS MEAT!"
I have no idea how they handle it...
I had all that meat with some of my friends and now we're all 5 minutes to grave-o'clock...
One wafer-thin thin mint away from exploding...
Work usedTounushifan brought to my attention that someone is selling t-shirts with one of TheFalconette's uniform charts based on my generic uniform base printed on them.
Since I have not heard of any word on this, nor do I think that TheFalconette has either, I think this is a case of art theft.
I have taken a look at this fellow's other designs, and they include images that are either the property of others or open-source stuffs, and I highly doubt they're meant to be sold.
The offender is user Smartturnout at Zazzle.
Be clear: I have never intended any financial use of the uniform designs I've made nor of their derivatives. Their purpose is nothing more than illustration.
So, I am contacting Zazzle about this vio
Agony ensuesYeah, having yet another busy period of study going on, so all projects here are on a slower schedule.
Also I have an appointment with a dentist to get my wisdom teeth removed. Joy.
Will write about that experience later on, though I suspect that either hijinx or sheer unbridled agony will ensue.
Kay, that didn't hurt. I mean at all. I'm serious on that. I really am. I am dumbfounded by this.
I feel like I've been lied to for years.
Some people are afraid of needles. I am not one of them. One year in the military made sure of that. And with modern pharmaceuticals everything after a tiny prick in the mouth (shut up) will not register. If there was any pain involved, it would've been the sound of the drill shrieking in my ears when taking care of another issue at the same go. But that must be because my ears are quite sensitive to high-pitched sounds...
But the freakiest part with the tooth removal... That damned crunch
Character design favorMe and my friends have been playing an rpg campaign with the RuneQuest ruleset on and off for some time, and we've finally managed to get some wind under it.
We have an established party of characters, with defined weaponry and armor, but we don't have any illustrations for our characters. We've tried to see if we know anyone IRL who could do some art, but thus far there hasn't been all that much luck on that account.
Anyway, I'd like to ask as a favor or an art trade for someone to make character illustrations for our party. There are three PCs and three more NPCs in our party, each with their own defined look.
Further details will be given as our players and RM give final descriptions of the characters, but the characters would be:
1/4-elf (human) knight
iron dwarf warrior
yellow elf windlord (a cleric)
There's the possibility for a seventh character as a PC, more info on that as that develops.
I'd do this myself, but I've specia
Merry ChristmasIt's noon where I am, the Christmas Peace has been declared, and soon home celebrations of Christmas will begin.
From the snows of the North I wish you all a merry Christmas, a happy holiday and the blessings of the Almighty!
Mini updateOK, entering another busy period with some exams coming up.
Nothing really special or new coming up gallery-wise, continuing with the same projects as before as able, but there are certain things to look out for in the near future:
Abolishment of the MAVeRICC and replacing it with three more traditional CoMAV projects + armored jeep, early concepts.
Russian Rastr camo reconstruction (oh God, this is gonna be an exhausting one...)
Lore dumps for my 'verse (mostly dealing with some of the Founding Races and planar entities).
Grade III armor concepts.
Ground warfare doctrine adjustments, with related branch insignia redesigns.
TOP Resident Evil Fan Fics IMO!!This is the Top Resident Evil Fan Fictions In My Opinion. There won't be any summarys sadly, because I'm going to be mentioning ALOT of fan-fics. I'm not giving any specific number per user, I'm going on how the story affected me, how much I connected with the character in that one-shot/series, and how good it was. Thanks to some people for reading my Cleon and Valenfield reviews.

Reviews: Chris And Jill (AKA Valenfield) stories
Jill and Chris are the one couple that we KNOW should be together, Claire and Leon is just something we wish (with all our hearts) would happen but know it won't. Chris and Jill (aka Valenfield) are the couple that CAPCOM keeps torturing over and over.
Before I give a review, I want to say a couple things:
Chris' face says "I LOVE JILL" all over it , but Jill doesn't seem to return those feeling to him. (It's all Carlos' fault!!) Anywayz, Chris and Jill are the perfect couple accoriding to most of us Resident Evil Fanatics.
Alot of the Valenfield fans are hoping Chris and Jill will be in the next game (My friend Pictsweet says that if they put him in the next game, he'll have been in... 5 games in a row) and I hope that the next one will be the end of the series, everyone gets their happy ever after, Jill and Chris getting married and being happy.
Veronica - Icon Pack reviewApp Name: Veronica - Icon Pack (Squared Lab)
Description: Veronica is an icon pack designed to give a fresh and modern look to your device. This icon pack features more than 740 icons including several colorful / minimalistic wallpapers.
If you are in the market for a colorful minimalistic theme, then this icon pack will suit your needs. It brings over 700 icons that provide you with a fresh new take on minimalism. ‘Veronica - Icon pack’ has multi launcher support so you can apply the theme with any custom launcher you use. There are 16 available wallpapers for your choosing, so you’ll never get bored with just one option.
With many similar icon sets, why should i buy this one? Simple, the developer is attentive to the icon set. Updates every saturday will make sure all of your icons are themed. You can also request icons within the application.
The bad: I can’t find anything bad with this icon set. However, I would prefer the icons to have

Miiverse: Admins...and why they need a Chill Pill!(Disclaimer: I’m writing this as a way of expressing my ideas and thoughts on Nintendo’s social networking site, Miiverse. The strict, yet unfairly enforced rules, warnings and banning is some of the most ridiculous stuff you’ll probably see on the internet.)
As of the release of the Wii U (back in 2012), Nintendo also decided to release Miiverse, an intuitive web service that allows you to create posts, both typed and handwritten, to communities throughout the site on various games. However, regulation of appropriate content is…total bull if you ask me. Many users constantly, and deliberately, violate the Code of Conduct, which is basically all the rules you must follow to use the service.
I think it’s good that Nintendo is using this as a way to enforce the posts that

Review: If you are anything like me you like to listen to music whenever you can. However, I refuse to invest in a Bluetooth speaker. I do have a stereo in the living room that I use to listen to music. While I do not spend time i
Assassin's Creed IV Review
+ Sailing mechanic
+ Assassination and combat are visceral and stealth is not even required for most of the missions
+ This time your current-time character works for the templars
+ Gives closure and more backstory on Desmond
+ The locations are beautifully rendered
+ MUCH to explore
- Camera is a bit wonky at times
- Ends on a non-ending, as far as current-time character is concerned
- Other than computers and notes, the Abstergo building doesn't offer much activity
- Online content felt tacked-on and wholly unnecessarily so
- Online content in the single-player campaign did not function for me, and the activities didn't unlock on my playthrough
+/- Combat was chaotic when crowded
+/- Many characters were introduced all of a sudden, and their initial relationships were left unclear
+/- Characters have lots of room for additional content, but it appears that this is being DLC'd
+/- Multiplayer added with rewards unlocked in the campaign
+/- The social media aspect with the companion ap
