Vocaloid : Blessed Messiah and the Tower of AI

Original version (without English sub):
【ボカロ10人】祝福のメシアとアイの塔【オリジナルMV】/【VOCALOID 10】『Blessed Messiah and the Tower of AI』【Original MV】

I fell in love with this song from Hitoshizuku × Yama△, with Suzunosuke‘s lovely artwork. They are the same team who did the Synchronicity series, which I love so much, so I knew I’m getting into something good. I just didn’t know how much of a feel trip this one would be. ;_; Consider yourself warned.

I also want to gush about how beautiful this video is. The 3D modeled animation and 2D art worked together so well. Watching this team’s works is always such an experience.

2018 Remake of “The End of Hatsune Miku”

Also known as “Disappearance of Hatsune Miku” (of which I have posted about its English lyrics long ago), a famous Vocaloid song of extremely high singing speed has reached its 10th anniversary!!

The remake version is a little different although the melody is mostly the same, and I’m still not sure how well I like it. Reading the lyrics still make me tear up a bit. ;_;

The song’s creator cosMo@bousouP posted this remake version on his official Youtube channel where he has posted several other remakes and a lot of his newer creations, do check them out~!

Intro to Dappervolk Beta

Dappervolk Logo

More than a year ago, I started playing Flight Rising, a pet raising game site focused mainly on dragons and from friends that I made there, I discovered a Kickstarter for a game called Dappervolk. It has the exact kind of storybook-like art-style that I’m instantly attracted to. In fact, it actually reminds me a bit of Legend of Mana.

So when the Closed Beta Testing started a while ago, I had to give it a try, even though everything except account ID and name will be wiped.

Here is a quick introduction to the game. My first impressions will be in another post on its own since this one has grown a little long.

Monster Hunter World Event Item Tracker

Monster Hunter World, Spring Blossom Festival

Monster Hunter World is currently having its first seasonal event, the Spring Blossom Festival, from 6th April to 19th April 2018, so there’s a bunch of new events. What’s more, many past event quests have made their return for this duration.

With the amount of quest items to collect and craft, I had some trouble keeping track of what’s for what and how many more. To help with that, I whipped up a quick item tracker on Google Sheet and decided to share it.

MHW Event Item Tracker  MHW Event Item Tracker

Just hop over, make a copy of the Google Sheet and you’ll have your own copy of the tracker sheet. I’ve also included an “Updates” tab so if I add new event items in my own copy in the future, those will show up automatically without messing things up in the Tracker tab.

Nifty eh? 😀 Hope it’s useful.

By the way, if you need more information about the Spring Blossom Festivals or the event quests, you can check out these two places:

Have a fruitful Spring Blossom Festival~!

Working on an introduction + first impression post about an online browser game named Dappervolk which is now in Closed Beta but it’s getting longer than I expected. But I’ll see about getting it out in the next few days.

I am alive! And back! 😀

How to save FFXV snapshots to PS4 Capture Gallery

Although the Day 1 “Crown Update” added the ability to share the Snapshots that Prompto took to our social media, there’s no way I’m going to share all 150 (and counting) snapshots to Facebook in one-go.

So when I was going between actually doing that and taking screenshots of the snapshots, I realized that if you do the following, you can save a copy of a snapshot to Capture Gallery without it going to your Social Media:

  1. Navigate to the snapshot you want to save
  2. Press the “Share” button
  3. Select “Yes” for the confirmation of “Share this photo?”
  4. Wait for the PS4’s Share Screenshot interface appear (just appear, you don’t have to wait for it to finish loading)
  5. Press the “Back” button
  6. That’s it! There should be a copy of the snapshot in your Capture Gallery’s FFXV folder

I’ve done this to save all the snapshots to PS4 and then delete them from the ingame album so I have more space for Prompto’s better photos (he takes a lot of crappy ones). I also did this to save snapshots before I load a save, because there are some photos that won’t be taken even if you run the exact same thing.

Remember to check your Capture Gallery to make sure you have the photo there before deleting the ingame one! Happy photographing!

Getting rid of pesky Photoshop registration pop-up

How to Stop the Registration From Showing on Startup in Photoshop CS2

I had to reinstall my Photoshop after upgrading to Windows 10 (yes, I succumbed to it finally) and again, had to deal with the registration form that kept popping up. Luckily I remembered this article and managed to vanquish it a second time, muahaha! Bye bye, irritating pop-up!

Neko Atsume update 1.7.0

20160714_184511

New cats have been released, so I’m popping in to check on the kitties again. After the sweet confectionery theme, it’s cooling summer time!  And it’s featuring some really cute new goodies, check out that penguin cushion! And that dinosaur slide! Can’t wait to see what the cats do with them. :3

Neko Atsume Store in Hong Kong!

Spotted this Facebook post on my wall and I’m so super envious of the fans living in Hong Kong now!

Look at those faces in 3D smiling at us~~ So cuuuute!!

Apparently it’s the second time a limited-time Pop-Up store for Neko Atsume has opened there. The first time was in February, and this time it’s until the end of August. Those who are interested and living in the area, do head over to the official Facebook page for more details.

I really hope they come to Singapore one day!

FFXIV Moogle Beast Tribe quest prerequisites

To everyone planning on starting the Moogle beast quests at the launch of 3.3

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward’s patch 3.3 added a new Beast Tribe Quest, Moogles & Dragons, that is for the Disciple of Hand classes. And since it’s the adorable (but sometimes infuriating) Moogles, it’s obvious that I won’t go without it. But I didn’t do all the Churning Mist moogle side-quests, so this is coming in real handy right now.

The top comment in the reddit thread has further details as well, so hop over and take a look (especially if you can’t see the embed below).

Silly mistakes not to repeat when making cosplay props #2

Really need to stop making stupid mistakes. This one cost me a lot of time cleaning up after it.

Handle fabric dye in places which are super easy to clean in case of mishaps. And water soluble packet means don’t handle with wet gloves!

The dye packet’s packaging started dissolving in different spots and before I realized, there’s a hole at the bottom and I got fabric dye on my bedroom floor. Good thing I was very close to the bathroom when it happened.

The only good news is that the purple looks like the color I was going for after all.
