A Year On (and a bit more)

About a year ago(I missed it by 12 days!) I started this blog, simply because I was too bored staying at home all day with my leg still in my cast. I fell down the stairs in such a hurry running down the stairs, and I got a hairline fracture.

Even though the first post was quite short, it started something new for me. I got the chance to "voice" more opinions on my own, and I sort of improved my vocabulary.(And my coding skills...?)

Now, I'm in the same spot, without a cast, and having a nice bottle of Pepsi.(Sorry Coca-Cola fans.) My blog had evolved quite a bit compared to when it started, but the black and white theme sticked. Why black and white?

SAF

I've gone through almost all of the games in Rhythm Heaven already! Once I got a "Superb" rating in all 50 mini-games, the "Perfect"s just kept coming since there's nothing else left to accomplish...


Anyway, SAF is back again! Not Singapore Armed Forces, but the Singapore Arts Festival! This year, the annual series is held from 15 May to 14 June, which is a good time as people can relax either during or after the period of chaos(exams, projects etc.) It's too bad I missed the opening act (Helios) last week because I had an exam a few days later... :(

Rhythm Heaven!

I've only seen people upload videos of them playing this game, but I only realized how fun this is when I tried it myself(and my brother too)!

Rhythm Heaven is a game heavily dependent on your sense of rhythm, as the name suggests. You use the stylus to perform different tasks on the screen(mainly tapping and flicking) according to the rhythm.

However, sometimes the rhythm shifts by getting faster, or emphasizing on a different beat etc, which can mess up your timing! Also, for every few tasks completed, you will have to complete a "remix", which includes bits of everything you have learnt from each game so far!

Words of Wisdom?

(Why give a word to the wise when it's the dumber people who need it more?)

People who live in glass houses should not throw stones at each other...or walk in their houses without clothes on.

Many hands make light work...and more cross-contamination.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but a durian a day keeps everyone away!

Don't judge a book by its cover...but by its reviews.

A journey of a thousand miles...begins with the route planning!

Short Circuit

A long time ago, I put this game on my blog. Because I found it somewhat annoying to hear the Armour Games intro sound, I removed it.

Now, it's back, in the form of this post, because I still want people to know about this game. And that I can't think of anything to write about today. Except a review on X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but I'm lazy.
