NekoJonez is alive! An update blog after my exams.

01

So where have I been? Didn’t you guys know that I had a lot of exams to go through? No, then you know now. But I’m finally through all of them. And in this update blog I’ll let you know what I see for the future! Because a lot of things have been going on. Oh, and a helpful tip is to look to my Twitter feed since I post small and quick updates often there. Even when I update my forum or when I’m about to write a new post. I have a few other posts to write, so yeah, couple of new posts will be released in the near future! I’m really excited for them. I hope they can entertain you guys as well. But enough stalling, let’s get on to the actual updates!

Prizes and podcast guest

With my blog, I recently won a prize. After receiving a few awards with the ButtonSmasher family, I won another award for my personal blog. That’s extremely sweet! I’m about to write an article about that after I’m done with this update blog. I won the Liebster Award. Which is basically a sort of chainletter award in the WordPress community. But in a good sense of the word. It’s basically a prize to say: “Hey, I like your blog! You are a great blogger and I think you earn a label to show your users that you publish quality content!”. (Oh yeah, here is the post that gave me my award! Link)

And that feels amazing. Being recognized by a community. Talking about that, I am a guest in a podcast. Several podcasts actually. I’m in two episodes of Allahweh’s Gaming Goddess podcast and I’m going to be a guest in the upcoming Retro Nick Podcast! I’ll be on at Wednesday 5th of February at 10AM EST. You guys will be able to follow the live stream of the podcast right here: youtube. The podcasts with me and Allahweh will be reblogged here of course. She said that in the upcoming week it will be published. I’m quite thrilled to see the end result.

Fyrecraft & live streaming

Sadly enough, the owner of FyreCraft had some money issues which made him stop the server. That’s the last I have heard of it. That’s quite sad to hear. That means that I’m going to live stream some other games and Minecraft single player. It’s quite possible that FyreCraft returns but if it does, I will let you guys know.

Thanks for the support of FyreCraft, I’m really going to miss the server. We might be able to work something out since Sam got the world backed up. So, I might live stream my single player experience or I might host it. But then I’m unable to live stream since that would lag the server quite bad. (Hosting and live streaming is bad for my internet, yo.)

Real life stuff

While my exams were happening, a bunch of stuff happened behind the screens as well. First of all, I have no access to my gaming laptop for a while. I know that I sad various times on Twitter that my gaming laptop is going to be fixed and such but today my aunt came and picked it up and my uncle is going to repair it and give it back to me next week! That means I won’t be able to play various games, but I rather try to finish all my other games as well.

Also, I have placed a bunch of new people at my friends page. It’s really worth to check them all out. I honestly forgot who I promised to give a shot out in this update blog so forgive me. Take a peek at my partners and friends page if you want to see who I really recommend to check out!

Besides that, I have a lot of catching up to do in terms of real life stuff. My birthday is in the near future. I’ll become 21 years old then! I’m going to get myself a new mobile phone, and I might post some quick articles with it. Who knows. Other then that, my room got quite messy thanks to my exams and I had to delay some things due to exams.

To close off this segment, my theater group is getting back in action. We selected a new play and I’m about to play a role in it again. I’m super excited to play with them again. Even with the new guys. I can barely wait. It will be great fun and that means around May the articles will come down to a crawl. Since I have the shows then, plus my exams are rather close then as well.

Updates and upcoming stuff

And now to close off this whole lengthy update article, I’m going to talk about updates and upcoming stuff. I might have told you guys that I have a controller for my laptops now. So, I’m able to play various games better now. This will improve my reviews as well.

Arpegi, my forum, as gotten a big update. Arpegi 3.0 includes a mini-game and various updates to nearly every part of the forum. I’m so happy that the update happened without creating a lot of new problems. There are a few but I’m going to patch them in the near future.

I’m also asked to write a new mod for a forum. I’ll get on that this weekend. And when I’m done with it, I might talk about it here in a quick blog. It’ll be a modification for a new button in the Simple Machine Forums.

Quite a lot of articles will be coming to my blog in the near future. A new first impression, a new review and most likely a new game diary. Yes, I have one planned. I have high hopes that I going to finish it!

So, that’s everything for this big update. But a whole 1,5 months went over this exam thingy, so logically I got a big update. Thanks for reading and I hope I can welcome you another time on my blog.

My favorite game music #4: Turning this into a series.

video_game_music_logoYes! I’m back. Well sort of. With a few announcements before we begin. First of all, I’m still studying. So, that’s why my laptop keyboard isn’t fixed yet. My family ordered a new keyboard but I get it with my birthday. Which is right after my exams. I have 8 left of them. So wish me good luck guys. Another announcement is that I’ll stream games again after my keyboard is fixed. And in addition to that, I’m turning this into a series. Yes! I’m fully convinced that this is a nice new series. So, I made a separate category for it and I’m now writing my 4th article in the series. Before you ask yourself where the other two articles are, I posted them on the ButtonSmashersBlog. Anyways, let’s get started now that all the personal stuff is out of the way and let’s start listing to some great beats. Oh, whoops. Before we forget. On this list, I don’t list remixes of tracks. Only the good old originals. And feel free to leave a comment or a like if you enjoyed this. 

 #1 Electronic Super Joy – Vee

If you haven’t played this game, what are you waiting for? It’s simply amazing. Tight controls, fun gameplay, challenging levels and amazing music.

This track is one of my favorites the game has to offer. It blows my mind each and every time I’m listing to it.

I think the soundtrack of this game is really worth buying if you love or even just like techno or electronical music. It’s highly recommended.

#2: The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time – Gerudo Valley

The orchestral version of this track is even better. But nothing can beat the original Ocarina Of Time track for me.

I used this track often as a character theme in my writing. It’s such an amazing theme for heroic characters and strong characters.

The character I wrote with it, is a general character. When you listen to the track and image an army rising from the horizon onto the battlefield, you’ll get what I mean.

If I could let myself go, this whole list would be full of tracks from the Zelda series. But I tried to keep this series open to other game series.

I’m rather curious if Nintendo is able to ever top this track. I actually doubt it since this is one of my favorite tracks ever made in the Zelda franchise.

#3: Wario – Master Of Disguise – Sweatmore Peak

The amazing memories this game brings me. I bought this game judging on the back and front of the box. And I didn’t regret it. I’m actually replaying it now in order to write an article about it. Maybe you see a first impression or a review in the near future.

But this track is one of my absolute favorites from the game. It starts simple. But the track seems to be excited that some amazing music is going to come.

And it’s quite right. The longer the track goes, the better it becomes.

It’s light, upbeat, melodic… Everything I like in a good gaming track. I’m a bit bumped out that the track is sort of short. This is one of the tracks I think would have benefited from being longer.

#4: Pokemon X & Y – Collection Battle! Elite 4

Ehehehe, I still need to write a review or a first impression of this game. I admit, I haven’t finished this game. And I think some tracks in the soundtrack of this game are just boring. Like the gym leader one. There isn’t much going on.

But the elite four battle music took my by surprise. I’m now trying to beat the league and I really think that this theme is perfect.

The rock elements is what makes this track so great. I was even headbanging a bit while listing to this track, while writing this article.

They needed to have a more upbeat track for the gym leaders and I wouldn’t be able to say that the soundtrack is flawed.

#5: Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire & Emerald – Frontier Train Battle

A great game I’m going to replay in the future is the 4th 3rd generation of Pokémon games. It’s honestly one of my favorite entries in the series. And the possible remakes of them is just exciting me a whole lot. (And thanks Austin for pointing out my mistake here.)

I’m rather curious if they are going to remake it. But this track really needs to be in it! I think it’s totally worth adding.

It just brings up so many memories when hearing this track. I just love it and I think it’s really at home here in the Pokémon soundtrack.

Closing words

Yes, I’m making this an exclusive article for this blog. Next article will be a new creepypasta. But I already published it on a friends Tumblr. You can find it on my CreepyPasta page.

Anyways, I know this is a short article but forgive me. I’m quite busy and when I’m done studying I prefer playing some games instead of working on new articles and such. I’m just too tired to write creatively. But give me until the end of this month and I can make my full blown return guys! Thanks for reading and take care!

Oh, and for this article I changed the design of my blog. I hope you like this theme. But don’t worry, I like change it from time to time! Just to spice things up you know?
