So let me get this straight. I’ve been a fan of the Arc System Works games, I like the Persona series, I have a soft spot on Under Night In-Birth… and NOW you’re saying that ASW decided to go balls deep and cross them over in a tag battle, while still hot on heels with Dragon Ball Fighter Z!?
This is actually not that high compared to the last number. Which may be a little ironic considering who’s in last time, but we’ll see if we can boop through this. And don’t worry, special precautions have been made so this does not get h– let’s just get this over with.
Well, I gotta start from someone at first at the bottom. So… (sigh) it looks like the one at the bottom apparently is everybody’s favorite super cheery Brit girl, Lena Oxton AKA Tracer. I can definitely see those who’d jeer on me for liking everybody’s favorite poster girl, but… I am prepared.
In which I explain shortly on how I got into the genre and my attempts to get to these series of videos…
It all began when a certain event in console gaming shook me so much, as much as a geek like me could handle (We’ll get to that later), that I retreated to PC gaming. At first I was just an ex-Dota player, who played in my campus casually, and after that retreat, I discovered Steam… and Dota 2 was free! I was able to indulge myself in the game as a small retreat, but due to TV Tropes and a certain youtuber/content maker known as the Green Scorpion… Well, long story short, I got introduced with League of Legends. I was skeptical to join at first… until I discovered there was an Indonesian server provided by Garena.
Long story short, I simply got ADDICTED. I spent hours and hours within the year in playing that game, exploring its nuances, getting better. In addition, I also occasionally slips into Dota 2 as well. The latter is a harder game, but nonetheless enjoyable. And as time passed, more big stuffs came in, in form of Smite and Heroes of the Storm. All in all, I fell in love the MOBA genre for real… something that was supposed to be a runaway place.
However, as time passed and I also became more and more impressed with countdown makers… It hits me one thing… Most of them are only giving credits to League of Legends. I know everyone have their own preferences, and it’s okay… and it may be just me getting petty. But I thought that the other big MOBA games deserve their own recognition amongst the community. This, in addition of several unsavory stuffs amongst the genre… that is, being a fan war that attempts to badmouth the other product to make their own product look better… (for instance, ‘a Dota 2 fan calling the genre MOBA should be lambasted because it’s League that coined it, Dota 2 is ARTS damn it!’. No, shut up, enough with this elitism.) It doesn’t endear me one bit. It’s like saying you can only pick one. Pick just one to master with dedication, I can understand, but pick just one to love and badmouth the rest? The hell??
And that was why I made the MOBA Season series of videos. I might have very little audience so far and it still pained me, but does that deter me? No. I did it anyway, because I start to enjoy doing what I do and expressing love to what I like. The MOBA Season is basically a series of countdowns where I list up my favorite things in certain MOBAs, though I put it on hiatus for now to hopefully expand my area of interests in the eyes of many. Besides, I don’t call myself pro, I’m just your casual scrub who never played Ranked. So things are mostly on personal preferences.
And after this, I might even expand the season for things other than countdowns. For instance, common cliches that are often featured throughout every MOBAs. It’s not going to make your play style better, but it might be some interesting tidbits.
But for now, after this, I will first post the videos I have made so far for the Season, before I move on. If you’re interested in this… Good for you!
So yeah, I think it is proper to first lay down my Area of Interests. So you guys can have an idea on which to see in this blog. Don’t take it as a final list, though. There will be times I get around listing another series not put in here.
Anime & Manga
Flame of Recca
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
Magic Knight Rayearth
Senki Zesshou Symphogear
Dead or Alive
Heroes of the Storm
King of Fighters
League of Legends
Super Robot Wars Original Generation
These series shaped me to the man I am now. Of course, I might be missing something and maybe I don’t follow them anymore for… reasons… but you get the point.
I’m a programmer who has passions for fictions or video games. And in this blog, I’ll be posting a lot of things that comes to my mind about the fictions and the world within there.
What, does this name and site name look familiar to some of you?
Ah yes, I used to make a blog with the same title in Blogspot. Let’s just say I decided to switch home, and expand from my old stuff, from just majorly Tokusatsu to other things like more video games or more anime.
I also make videos. I have a Youtube channel over here. These videos are mostly about countdowns or top X lists, based on the likes of Quarter Guy and Josh Scorcher. I will be posting my videos first so you guys can also enjoy it. However, within this blog, I will be making text countdowns as well. Perhaps some of you will say “Text countdowns are boring”. But I object to that. It’s another form of opinion expression, and it also saves time for someone who has a full-time job like me. Second, thanks to Youtube’s more strict policies about copyright, it’s kind of hard to make things based on anime there, because I would need to use clips from that. I’m still learning the ropes on that. But in the meantime, ideas still come and go fast, so before those ideas run dry, this is a good back up.
And lastly… I never said I quit making videos. I’d still be making them, and perhaps some of the posts here will be upgraded into videos later. But as I said, it takes more time.
Regardless, I hope you guys enjoy your visit over here! A lot of great things incoming!
