March 2016 updates… wow year is 1/4 gone already…

Some minor updates to give out these days:

-Currently dating a wonderful Korean girl 🙂 the only regret I have is that I’m not sure how much time I have with her before I leave Korea…
-The Golden State Warriors are hot hot hot! on pace for a record season that will probably surpass the 1996 Chicago Bulls (72-10). Steph Curry is the best player on the planet, and because of my basketball reviews on Amazon I was asked to review a Steph Curry biography by the Author, Clayton Geoffreys who gave me a free copy. I gladly did and the review is live now 🙂
-starting up a new language exchange site with a few friends, Ping2Pong which I believe is a great language exchange, better than the rest out there, because it encourages people to teach their language first before learning a language. Give and receive.
-Lots of Lets Play videos have been uploaded on youtube, I’ll have a few at the end of this post for u guys to show. In addition, I’m now part of a MCN called Pave Network which means I should be increasing my views soon 🙂
-Last 3 months have been pretty brutal in terms of workload, balancing work at Walmart, with starting up a new language exchange site, and doing youtube videos all at once. So I haven’t been outside that much these days 🙁 coming back to San Francisco next month will be a well needed rest for me 🙂
-In addition going back to SF means I will have some new gadget review videos and stuff soon 🙂 upcming games/gadgets include Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 (imported from Japan), the Oculus Rift of course, Lenovo X1 Yoga (first laptop with OLED screen), and iPhone 6se (finally a small smartphone again!)

Most of my Lets Play videos are focused on my favorite gaming genres: Open world third person, First person shooters, Sci-fi RPG, and real time strategy. So here’s my favorite games for each:

Open World third person:
1. Sleeping Dogs
2. Saints Row 4
3. Just Cause 2

First person shooter:
1. Duke Nukem 3D
2. Unreal Tournament 3
3. Bioshock Infinite

Real time strategy:
1. Starcraft II
2. Rise of Legends
3. Age of Mythology

Sci-fi RPG:
1. Deus Ex Human Revolution
2. Anachronox
3. Freelancer

Minor update on life, decklist for Hearthstone/Magic, DOS game reviews

Wow, I can’t believe its June already. I feel like I havent done that much this year, compared to previous years. I think thats because I traveled alot and hung out alot with my friends in 2012 (lots of trips and events) and 2013 (lots of house parties and clubbing) and to a lesser degree 2014 as well, but this year I’m more or less alone in Korea. Even though I have friends here, they are usually too busy to hang out, and I haven’t traveled outside of Seoul yet. Some tourist I am, and I’ve been here 6 months already. I should definitely travel soon, else I feel like I’m not doing much with my time constantly staying at home and working.

I went back to San Francisco and Toronto in April and last month, so I got to see all my good friends again. One of my good friends has a baby already and it made me feel so old when I visited him. Am I that much closer to getting married and being a father? Well first I have to find a girlfriend, which is a neverending source of grief for me, so maybe I don’t have to worry about it, but then again maybe I should since I just turned 27 years old a few days ago. Dang. I miss my 24 and 25 year old life, traveling and house parties and clubbing and stuff (see previous post about regrets on not preserving that time better). Oh well, life has to move on I guess.

So yeah these days I’ve been staying at home and playing games. I modded Fallout New Vegas (http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/) and I definitely recommend the Weapon mods, High res texture mods, Nevada skies weather mod, EVE lighting mod, Project Nevada, more Perks and Mission Mojave rebalance mod. It brings FNV to 2015 standards.

On another note I’ve been uploading ALOT of youtube videos for dos games and playing Hearthstone a lot more, and conversely Magic the Gathering a lot less. I’ve made a page for it because the Magic list is more or less set, since I don’t play it as much anymore. And I plan to move some of my korean teaching articles over to this site to unify it, since I don’t write any more articles for that site. Sounds good? I want this blog to be the hub for all my projects.

And here are some of the old game playthroughs I’ve uploaded, some of them I haven’t played in as much as 12 years. I also hope to do a video on Diablo 3 Reaper of souls, Starcraft 2 Legacy of void, and Dungeon defenders 2 soon as I played alot of those with my friends.
