Obligatory Post – 18-09-11

Ooo it’s been almost exactly a month since my last post!

And from the looks of my last post, it seems that I managed to survive one of the busiest months!

I suppose I should just talk about what’s been up; time to pour thoughts down as they come because it’s a Sunday night and I haven’t been feeling too motivated to do anything today ~

First of all, Happy 23rd Birthday to Hans “Dice” Hadiardja for yesterday!

Slicing the cake with a spoon. Boss.

I reckon we should start a group tradition to have the birthday cake in random parks at night – screw having them in the restaurants/cafes!

Was browsing the SCAnet forums: http://starcraftarena.net/forum/index.php?topic=34709.0

Came across this:

On nom nom nom.

Also if you haven’t seen/read/heard: http://www.teamliquid.net/blogs/viewblog.php?topic_id=176675&currentpage=All (the “Hi IdrA” blog post in TL is going to be made into a song by Smix and `Zapdos, cannot wait).

Mass Effect 2 Finished!

Erm.. so I started playing Mass Effect 2 like.. ages ago, importing my character from Mass Effect 1 and then stopped for awhile too (formatted and couldn’t be bothered to re-install due to Uni and pure-laziness etc etc).

But a few days ago I reinstalled it with my retained save files (prudence :)) and finished it off; I didn’t realise I was pretty much on the last few missions already.

So here are some thoughts + the ending I got – SPOILERS BELOW so do not keep reading if you do not want to be (partially) spoilt!

[Sc2] GSL3 – Invasion of the Foreigners*.

*Mad kudos to Hao for the title-steal; visit his site and give him lots of love.

So with GSL2 finished over the weekend and the GSL3 qualifiers finished yesterday (within 2 days, wow!).. thought I’ll throw some thoughts down on both of these tournaments.

Let’s start with a Sc2 related video:

/Spoilers ahead – then again as Eugene said, if people cared they would know already. He does have a point =P.

The Terran Diaries.

I’m going to introduce a new Category for this.

In short, this is going to be a satirical response to all the non-Terran players crying “OP (overpowered)” at the moment. Quite frankly I am a bit annoyed at people slagging Terran players out for selecting Terran – why hate on the players and not the game?

Having said, please meet Tyrone Jackson the Marauder.

A Whole Lotta' Love.

Day: 1
Kill Count: 4
Rank: Recruit
Mood: Excited/Anxious

ESL – Intel Extreme Masters s5 [Sc2-Playoffs]

I was almost tempted to write up a political post about why Liberal’s broadband plan is stupid despite being so much cheaper.

Or just read here; 12Mbps to 100Mbps vs 100+Mbps..

It’s just important to note this:

“We just can’t abide with being a third-rate internet country anymore.”

Comparing to a lot of other developed countries, Australia has by far one of the worst (if not the worst) broadband capabilities. :sadface:

Anyway on a lighter note – the Intel Extreme Masters season 5 (gamescon @ Germany) is on at the moment! SC2 and Quake Live are going on at the moment I believe.

Round 1
Round 2
Round 3
Winner
vs
MorroW 8.

dimaga 4.

Tarson 3.

Sarens 7.

I really want to see TLO vs IdrA for the finals.. make him eat his words haha.
